    It’s Time to Ban Guns. Yes, All of Them.
    BY PHOEBE MALTZ BOVY
    December 10, 2015

    "Ban guns. All guns. Get rid of guns in homes, and on the streets, and, as much as possible, on police. Not just because of San Bernardino, or whichever mass shooting may pop up next, but also not not because of those. Don’t sort the population into those who might do something evil or foolish or self-destructive with a gun and those who surely will not. As if this could be known—as if it could be assessed without massively violating civil liberties and stigmatizing the mentally ill. Ban guns! Not just gun violence. Not just certain guns. Not just already-technically-illegal guns. All of them. "

    Phoebe lives in Toronto, what would you expect... She's just another conforming socialist from north of the border...

    Didn't they ban guns in Paris? How'd that work out?

    Doesn't Kalifornia have some of the strictest gun laws in the United States?
    How'd that work out???

    Michael Bloomberg's NYC, where you supposedly cannot own guns... Two police officers executed in their patrol car...

    How'd that work out?

    See the pattern? Criminals don't adhere to the law... Go figure!!!!!!

    People like this are incapable of rational thought, nor of comprehending actual facts and figures. Therefore, their opinion is worthless. Thankfully, we do have a 2nd amendment here and even the average citizen of the US, as blindly stupid as some of them are, would even consider such an extreme measure.

    I propose we mandate that all Canadians be required to purchase firearms, then send them to United States citizens. Makes perfect sense to me, and considering it's not backed by any reason or common sense, makes my opinion about as valid as this waste of oxygen.

    I'm surprised she didn't say: "And replace all badges with targets."

    Actually, she lives on a small ranch just outside Toronto, raising alpacas and llamas. But her main source of income is writing. She has a doctorate degree in French and French studies from New York University. So she can also write well in French.

    She is a Liberal Jewish Feminist who loves France and the French people. Sort of a French Wanna Be.

    She loves Asian food, especially Japanese, and also loves watching old '70's TV sitcoms. All in the Family and the Mary Tyler Moore Show ( created by liberal Jewish TV producers Norman Lear and James Brooks, respectively ) are her two favorite TV shows. She also likes Woody Allen movies.

    She normally does not write about guns or gun control. She is usually obsessed with writing about everything that is French. She has recently defended the French people from criticism for so many of them making Anti-Islamic statements after the Paris attacks. She explained that they were simply upset and emotional, and thus not responsible for what they said.

    " Let's get serious about what it will take, for "meaningful steps" to actually BE, meaningful steps.

    Otherwise, let's skip to the chase and admit: "It's all just window-dressing, and political payback to the NRA."

    What has to go?
    All magazine fed, self-loading firearms.
    Yes, that means handguns too.
    Yes, that includes your 4 shot Remington hunting rifle.

    Yes, that includes rigid controls on police firearms.
    Your 5 shot revolver can go home with you officer, your 17 shot handgun stays inside the armory of the police station. Armory, not your locker. Signed-in, signed-out, via proximity card reader, with real-time computer controls at the State and Federal levels.
    Did you, officer, have a domestic violence incident at home? Shoot a fleeing person of color over a tail light violation? Get served divorce papers?
    Huh, your proximity card no longer works... and that 17 round death machine stays IN the armory. "

    "
    ~10% of replies are for some form of drastic action, just not whole hog.
    ~10% are for "get 'er done" and go for ALL of the semi-automatics, and maybe more.
    A further ~10% is for a total gun confiscation. Every. Single. One.
    That's 29% in true numbers.
    1-in-5 respondents are willing to kick doors in, and get it done today.

    You know, I'd just like to see them go ahead and try that last option on any kind of level (more than just the random 'violator'). Let the country see what they're dealing with. Thugs, criminals, lunatics - and I'm talking about the politicians and their jackbooted enforcers that see citizens rights as a non-issue when a paycheck is involved. I suspect the American people would finally draw the line at forced confiscation. Might be an interesting wake up call to people like this gal, when they realize they are actually in a very small minority - and they are not armed.

    Silly people who can't look after themselves should be taken care of by others. In this little girls case I suggest at least an outpatient program with lots of meds. Maybe some home visits as well.

    To some of the comments - she did get published. The New Republic is an actual magazine, with editors and publishers. They might be out there, but they approved her piece. Which tells me there is some traction to this.
    Could it be some kind of trial balloon? Maybe for some /leading/ candidate - I wouldn't be shocked. After all they could blame it on Canada, eh.

    But what I do think is the majority of voters in Oregon and Washington would not speak out against her position, even if they are liberal gun owners.

    As for those of you in the Workers Paradise of Idaho. Have you checked the voter registration roles of you newest residents? .....

    Lmao that dolt doesnt see the effing problem with her bubblegumty little ide huh?

    That would literally disarm all the folks who are law abiding in the first place.
    Criminals wont give up theirs.
    That retard on wheels also doesnt realize how easy it is (with a level of machining skills), same for gun powder. This antis have a serious lack of mental computing power.
