Leave Mass Murder to the Professionals, Obama tells Holmes

  Satire by Hugh Farnham

In a fit of disgust with the Colorado "Batman" shootings, President Obama exclaimed: "James Holmes needs to keep his day job. Who does he think he is? The ATF? He's a piker!"

President Obama was at Camp David putting the final touches on the UN Arms Trade Treaty, a progressive wish-list of worldwide gun control diktats.

"I want to be perfectly clear," the President said in a recent interview, "We need Rwandan-style gun control. Only the police and military will have weapons. Period. So slink off and be bitter, but you can't cling to your guns. We need to take those - for your own safety."

A reporter asked about guns for home defense. "Our police and emergency responders need to be as well armed and funded as the military" he said. "You won't need to protect your family from intruders - we'll send professionals to do that."

--------

All satire aside, the tragic fact is that disarming victims leads to great bloodshed. I'm referring to the millions of people who died at the hands of their government over the past century. Most of these mass murders were preceded by a cynical and calculating "gun control" program, leading to eventual disarmament. Genocide followed soon thereafter.

Governments are the greatest mass murderers, not amateurs like James Holmes

The UN Arms Trade Treaty seeks to impose an international regulatory regime of tracking certain firearms, and outright banning of others - except for those guns in the twitchy and murderous hands of the State. Obama intends to sign this treaty within the week. The Senate has then to ratify it for it to become law.

Unfortunately, the UN Vienna Convention prevents legislative bodies from subverting a treaty from the time it is signed by a President until it is ratified by the Senate. It is in a quasi-state of ratification - just the justification that enemies of the Constitution like Schumer need to ramrod through laws that support the treaty. Obama is well aware of this.

If you remain unconvinced about the wickedness of disarming victims, I only need to point you to the Rwandan Genocide. Civilian disarmament set the stage for the 800,000 - 1,000,000 violent murders that took place there. Prior to the outbreak of violence, Rwanda was a model of UN disarmament and gun control. Eventually only the Hutu State had firearms. The rest of the story followed a predictable path, ending with Tutsis clogging rivers with their dead bodies.

Gun control advocates have innocent blood on their hands

If you still trust in the government's wisdom with firearms, I point you to the ATF's Operation Fast and Furious, which transferred US firearms to Mexican drug lords. Over 200 Mexicans have been murdered with these weapons.

Fast and Furious was designed to demonize U.S. gun shops - and provide statistics in time to justify signing the UN Arms Trade Treaty. It was a false flag that went sideways. (Note to the Administration: If you are going to attempt a false flag, get sharper tools than the ATF.)

Contact your Senator here. Let your congress-critter know not to ratify or vote for any law that supports Obama signing this treaty.

The life you may save might be your own.

Something I'd like to know: What there any documented ANYTHING that would have prevented Holmes from acquiring the weapons and ammo supply he had?

To my knowledge, he had no medical or criminal record.

If I am misinformed, please tell me.

Satire meaning none of it is true, but I await your club of racists to cheer every word of it.
America is not a polite society, so being armed must not help.

" ... tasked with stopping guns from being trafficked ..."

I stopped reading right there. I stoutly refuse to read material written by half-wits exhibiting severe symptoms of advanced functional illiteracy.

This verbing of nouns and nouning of verbs must CEASE and DESIST.

Once this abominable usaging has been ceased and desisted, ambitioning to sanitate the culture syntaxwise might creditabilitize itself. Doubtation exists as to the realisticality of any such expectationing. The language is being pisspoored into extincitifying itself by rottenization of usagizing by the increasified anything-goesing of the culture.

Just look at Syria.

Silverfiddle said...

Ducky: I read the ridiculous article you linked us to. One man's opinion.

It's chock full of ridiculousness like this:

. But five law-enforcement agents directly involved in Fast and Furious tell Fortune that the ATF had no such tactic. They insist they never purposefully allowed guns to be illegally trafficked. Just the opposite: They say they seized weapons whenever they could but were hamstrung by prosecutors and weak laws, which stymied them at every turn.

Nothing to see here folks! Five agents directly involved in the scandal just said so!

And the last sentence smacks of an arrogant, rogue operation, bureaucratic incompetence, or both.

Dismantle the ATF and put Heinrich Holder on trial.

Silverfiddle said...

And Ducky, since you brought up Syria...

... Pre-rebel uprising Syria is a great example of what a disarmed state looks like.

Wouldn't it be awesome if Obama could just wipe out 30,000 Bible-clinging hicks that disagreed with him they way Old Man Assad did?

Clinton and Reno did their best, burning up all those religious kooks down in Waco...

Z said...

the reply, as it was at my blog weeks ago when you tried this before, Ducky, is that that's one guy! We're all supposed to fall down and play dead for him but totally ignore all the agents who testified about what really happened? He's a truth teller because you like it, the rest are liars when they testified that, under Bush, the guns were under surveillance at all times and when Obama took over the quotes were "you want us to LEAVE them HERE? You mean GO?" Ya, GO... They were shocked and mayhem followed.

"Don't worry, Silverfiddle. Nobody's coming for your pop guns.

Hitler pretty much said the same things.

Regardless. So Obama signs this UN Small Arms Treaty, right after he said this yesterday "And I, like most Americans, believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms. And we recognize the traditions of gun ownership that passed on from generation to generation." he would look like a hypocrite (but that's nothing new).
He'll sign it!!
BTW: Both my senators, one a Dem and other a Rep, both have confirmed to me, when I wrote them both about the treaty, that it would indeed limit your right to bear arms.

When I grew up the people I grew up with were educated. They were practical. We grew up in a world where color was never something unusual. I grew up with kids of every nationality, race, religion and belief system. There was no excuse here for ignorant naivete.
Some of us were religious, and many others were not. We were Baptist, Jewish, Catholic, Muslim, and every possible variation therein. But everybody respected one another, not like the people (and I use that term loosely) .we find here on this very blog. SF being the ringleader.
As kids, there was never any talk of race, as there is today. Is it because we have a Black president today? Well that is as you folks say TOO "F"en bad.
Live with it. Or don't!
Conservatives are not our average Americans .. Conservatives are on the wrong side of history once again. The side that loved to see Black treated like 2nd class citizens. Well as you folks say TOO "F"en bad.
Live with it. Or don't!
I expected that people would have learned from history, not repeat it.
Yes, we have a Black president, They can't ignore it, they just have to keep on screaming about how bad things have gotten to be since their hero George Bush left office. The same George Bush who was happy to let Blacks work in sweat shops and fire traps.. Well it's all over now.
Well I say, thank God! And it's too "F"en bad.... Live with it. Or don't!

When a liberal has no logical facts and argument they throw the racist card. It is not that Obama is black, green,pink or any other color you choose. It is that he is incompetent to do the job which you elected him to do. Has done a horrible job as president, has divided the country, devalued the currency and is hell bent on punishing success.

It seems like his followers are of the same mindset as he is, screw up and blame others. Never take personal responsibility for anything that doesn't go right. When the going gets tough the democrats blame others.

Leticia said...

There are many of us who will do all that we can to protect our 2nd amendment rights.

We have the right to protect ourselves and our homes and our families from people who intend to due us harm.

I know I have said this before, but Switzerland has the right idea. We could learn a bit from them about gun responsibility and while doing so teaching our youth the proper way to use a weapon and that life is precious and must be protected.

I fully support the NRA and I will never give up my firearm. Because if someone breaks into my home, the police won't get there in time to save me or my children. I promise you I wouldn't hesitate to kill an intruder. It's them or my children, and my children will be protected at all costs.

Jersey McJones said...

The UN ARMS TRADE TREATY has nothing to do with domestic American gun law, just international trade. We make, and export, and import, and have plenty of our own, and it doesn't change things for us.

As for "disarming victims," that is not in any way how the law is worded or works. Most third world violence is among the poor. The very armies the juntas and such raise are the same poor and disenfranchised they are killing. The various revolutions and civil wars usually involve regular folks killing other regular folks. Things haven't changed when it comes to all this since the Civil War here in the US, or all the way back to the ancient Greeks.

As guns have become more accurate and deadly, and faster, internecine violence has become more and more convenient and easy for all sorts of bad actors, be they governments, or revolutionaries, or drug cartels, or religious radicals, or crazy guys who think they're the Joker, or feuding tribes and families in some far off land.

The UN is trying to both get an understanding of all the implications of the gun trade and to try to make standards for international gun trade, something an international body should be doing in the first place. That's the whole fuckin point, right?

Jersey:

Your child-like confidence in the corrupt and hapless UN and its useless laws is amusing.

Hugh Farnham said...

Ducky:

I don't believe you have ever been in an armed society - most East coasters haven't.

Imagine if Holmes had tried this in Cheyenne. There, every law-abiding citizen has the right to carry concealed, period, without some piece of paper from the State.

Holmes would have popped off a few rounds, enough for a couple dozen armed citizens to unholster.

That's why these kind of things rarely happen in states that respect the 2nd Amendment.

Aurora was (and is) a victim disarmament dream come true - the same for greater Denver as well. The people are not armed. They can be very unpolite.

Hugh Farnham said...

Nice try, Jersey. That's the Left's party line on the UN Treaty.

Look at the fine print and you will see it drives nation-state legislatures to create laws to support banning certain guns, full registration of all others.

Your intellectual dishonesty has been noted. Again.

"Some call it the "parade of ants"; others the "river of iron." The Mexican government has estimated that 2,000 weapons are smuggled daily from the U.S. into Mexico. "

So what you are saying is that a secure border would be in Mexico's interest too. Who woulda thunk?

Intentional or Incompetence, I'm surprised the man who won't show his ID to the "pigs" is a rabid supporter of the ATF. Go figure!

Jersey:

"The UN is trying to both get an understanding of all the implications of the gun trade and to try to make standards for international gun trade, something an international body should be doing in the first place. That's the whole fuckin point, right?"

You mean the international body that put the PRC, Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Syria, Libya, and Uganda on the Human Rights Council. "That's the whole fuckin point, right?"

Actually it's me, Hugh, who wrote this piece.

You are quite right. No one is going to come for my pop guns. The government is too incompetent.

Name me a current government program, Ducky, that meets 90% of their mission objectives.

Imagine the government confiscating 90% of America's guns - 270 million out of 300 million estimated to be in free hands.

That still leaves 30 million guns in the hands of very pissed Americans.

So, no, I don't think the Federales have the manpower or intelligence to implement complete gun control.

And even if they did, I do have a lathe... what's next? Lathe control?

Mustang said...

The UN Arms Trade Treaty is at least deceptive, and at most an affront to the sovereignty of the United States. The deception begins with the first principle, which reads, “1. The inherent rights of all states to individual or collective self-defense…” The uninformed may conclude that this phrase purports to grant Americans their legal (e.g., Constitutional right) to keep and bear arms; it does no such thing. The language actually recognizes the inherent right of states to individual and collective self-defense. It does not recognize an individual’s inherent right to keep and bear arms.

The UN treaty encourages states to enact national legislation sufficient to meet the treaty’s minimum goals —registries, background checks, import/export controls. Subsequent corrigendum of this treaty, once ratified, is significantly simplified. We should ask, why the need for additional “national legislation” when it is already existent? We call this the US Constitution and its amendments and our state laws governing possession and use of firearms.

Presently, the ATF is attempting to “outlaw” shotguns. To what purpose does ATF seek to remove shotguns from the people? ATF has been engaged in nefarious programs designed to defeat the Second Amendment for several years; this is the underlying fact of the despicable operation, Fast and Furious. Do we want to live in a society where only the government has the guns? During the aftermath of Katrina, US military forces disarmed citizens and confiscated their weapons. This was a disturbing precedent, and one that left a civil population without police protection or the means to protect themselves against human predators.

An intelligent person can only conclude that the UN treaty only pretends to target “illicit” weapons … it actually poses a real and present danger to our beloved Constitution. And it is a fact that the United Nations has not earned our trust. The same is true about the left wing of the American politick. These are agenda driven fools who intend to disarm our free society. They do not even care that our society is free precisely because firearms give us the means to resist tyranny. Now, as it has been mentioned before, no American city is more restrictive of firearms than Chicago, Illinois is; neither is there any other American city more dangerous. Let us recall that God created man; Sam Colt made them equal.

Come on Finn, give the guy a break. Having come here to proselytize among the heathens he's distraught that we haven't been swayed by his somewhat less than erudite expositions of stale liberal talking points, espoused at random and out of context. After all, you don't expect him to stay on topic, construct a cogent argument, and then defend it do you? What recourse does he have except ill mannered insult and invective.

Or in language Steve may understand, he's out of his league, can't hit the pitching and has chosen to heckle from the stands?

Ice-T understands the Second Amendment.

“I’ll give up my gun when everybody else does…if there were guns here, would you want to be the only one without one? ” He then touched on the right to bear arms by stating, “It’s legal in the United States.

The right to bear arms is because that’s the last form of defense against tyranny, not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police.” When asked about links between guns and violence, Ice-T declared, “if someone wants to kill people they wouldn’t need a gun to do it…” http://www.examiner.com/article/ice-t-defends-the-second-amendment-the-wake-colorado-shooting

Steve: It's not just that we are against your line of "thinking" - the whole of nature is as well.

If you continually depart from the lessons of natural law there's little left for you. Chains in the best case - and in the worst case, nature can be very unforgiving for those who can't accept reality.

Conservatives embrace natural law. The right to life, liberty, and property. The right to defend one's self. The right to point out injustices boldly, and gather groups of like-minded activists.

The right to worship the God who created nature itself - or not, as one sees fit.

There's no long term future for you or those like you if you continue to be so closed-minded. If you are lucky, chains will be your fate.

Nevertheless, when someone bothers to make a sincere, even valiant, effort to defend YOUR language against the desecration of ignoramuses and the depredations of laxity, the least you could do would be to express a modicum of support if not outright gratitude.

It would be arrogant for anyone to claim never to make grammatical or orthographical errors, but there's a difference between the occasional typo and insouciance or willful ignorance.

The kindest thing we could do for one another would be to correct each others' errors.

FreeThinke said...

By the way, I've found linguistic atrocities and syntactical sins in The New York Times.

Oh! and have you looked at the King James Bible lately?

There's little agreement with antecedent there -- just acres and acres of tedious, formulaic, hideously redundant, awkwardly phrased prose. It's quite easy to see where one ancient author left off and another began. The variations in quality of expression are enormous. That takes nothing away from the many parts that are in fact very beautiful, but as a whole the KJV is a linguistically pock-marked opus.

"Perfection is not attainable this side of Heaven."

Bach and Mozart seem to bely that oft stated old saw, but doubtless, they, themselves, would not agree, since their vision was so far above and beyond the scope of ordinary mortals.

KEEP CORRECTING MISTAKES WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM. IT'S A GREAT SERVICE TO HUMANITY.

I know this is possible, because I have seen features of this kind in action years ago in other, admittedly smaller discussion venues.

What about our invasion of the Philippines? McKinley decides we need an empire so we invade and kill several hundred thousand.

Was McKinley a socialist?

Maybe the most level headed statement on this theme that I've seen is Miklós Jancsó's The Red and the White which looks at the Russian civil war in Hungary.

It really piles up the atrocities and it's brilliance is in blurring just who is doing what to whom.

According to Stalin, one death is a tragedy. A million deaths is a statistic.

So here are the body count stats, Ducky:

Your beloved Chairman Mao: 50 million
"Uncle" Joe Stalin: 20 Million
National SOCIALIST Adolf Hitler: 20 Million

The rest of your list are a few million and change.

Yes, I believe the Left and Socialists have killed enough people to stretch around the world many times. Many more times than so-called conservatives. No, I don't call Kissinger a conservative. A globalist, perhaps.
