Another example of the left and left-media hyping up a narrative to suit their purpose – it was not an assault rifle. The rifle (oh, but wait, if it was dark colored and evil looking, with a “shoulder thingy that goes up…“) was apparently a bolt-action rifle. Or worse, that it was – OMG – A BARRETT 50 CALIBER SEMI AUTOMATIC ASSAULT RIFLE!?!
Yet media outlets reporting the story are using stock images to pander their story. As seen here, here and here.
This, is a link to what may be the actual rifle. Not only is media hyping this story, but apparently, the guy who received it in error was not that much “horrified:”
In fiction, engineering, and thought experiments, unobtainium is any fictional, extremely rare, costly, or impossible material, or (less commonly) device needed to fulfill a given design for a given application. The properties of any particular unobtainium depend on the intended use. For example, a pulley made of unobtainium might be massless and frictionless; however, if used in a nuclear rocket, unobtainium would be light, strong at high temperatures, and resistant to radiation damage. The concept of unobtainium is often applied flippantly or humorously. For instance, unobtainium is described as being stronger than helium, and lighter than air.
Interesting that the lower-court judge made the decision she did. In these parts, they rightfully would not care. Pretending that there may be a problem with guns in that household, that’s defensible. Not right. The appeals court made the right decision. Though on an abuse of discretion standard, not as a constitutional issue.
Legislation to be introduced by Rep. Elizabeth Esty (D-CT), who compared gun deaths to car deaths, saying,
“This year is the first year in U.S. history that gun deaths will exceed car deaths. We should be ashamed.”
Not sure about that. Even if it were so, as the counter goes, ban cars then.
And this ultimate guide dismantles all its arguments in the closing paragraph:
There’s another, well-known problem with this conceit — lax federal and state laws make it easy to purchase guns from nearby, underregulated counties or states and bring them into cities. In Chicago, for example, gun sellers will simply set up shop just outside the city limits and sell to traffickers who bring the weapons into the city. That’s one of the key arguments for the sort of federal action being considered today, especially universal background checks at nearby gun shows to prevent this sort of trafficking.
Because criminals don’t care and legislation is not going to make a wrong-doer act different.
In any event, in Florida, concealed carry good – with a permit. Even without a permit in your car or other circumstances, so long as done right. Open carry bad. Consenting to any search of your person, vehicle, or home, at any time, worse.
Lesson? Know your states laws if you are going to carry. Comprehensively. Be aware, certain municipalities have – or had – different rules which may, or may not be legal (Not). Get a permit, if you can. And finally,
I've dedicated this page to helping wake up America. You'll find lots of topics here of interest to American Patriots who wish to defend the Constitution completely and want to see America thrive the right way. We're bitter clingers who support limited government, support our military and veterans, don't mind waving Old Glory, and telling you we love the USA. Are you with us?
