Quote of the Day — Don’t Confuse Me with Facts Edition

Update — Another Quote of the Day from Richard because I simply can not fathom the mindset involved nor the complete lack of understanding.

It’s as absurd and illogical to say I have a constitutional right to own an AR-15 as it would be to claim a constitutional right to own anything else I don’t need that’s a danger to others. The Bill of Rights doesn’t prohibit the government from restricting my freedom in order to promote public safety.

I had to read that line 3 times to be sure he was saying what I thought.



There are a few quotes that really illustrate the mindset of the anti-rights cultists. This one from OneUtah’s Richard Warnick.

Richard is described by Cliff Lyons as :

As for Richard’s expertise; he is by any standard a top writer/journalist on all things defense, a distinction earned and reflected over YEARS of well researched,exceptionally well-written and sourced articles.

So….top writer and journalist had this to say yesterday:

Thanks for the “Battle of Athens” link. I don’t keep up with Gun Lobby propaganda, so I’d never heard of it. I read it when I have time.

Read that very carefully folks for this is the ‘logic’ and ‘journalism’ that demonstrates the mindset of the anti-rights cultists.

Never heard of it but already convinced it is ‘propaganda’. Yep….don’t confuse him with the facts folks, his mind is made up.

    The filter here at work blocks their site as “Malicious”

    That’s fitting.

    that is too funny…too appropriate though.

    They have evil intentions. Sorry to call it out that way but they know the truth and don’t care. They are after control.

    Facts – we don’ need no steenkin’ facts. WE already know what is best for all of you proletariat out there.
    Sheesh – they ain’t even trying to hide their agenda anymore (not that they eve were if one was paying attention.)

    The Second Amendment was written specifically to protect and preserve the right to own contemporary, military, man-portable hardware, such that The People would never have to fear the tyranny of a military executing the will of a country’s executive branch on the country’s populace.

    At the time of the Second Amendment’s writing, private ownership of warships and cannon was not only allowed, it was actively encouraged and financially supported by the nascent government.

    So, after a fashion, the dumbass above is correct – the Second Amendment does not protect a right to own AR-15s. It does protect a right to own M16s and M4s, though.

    I would say it does protect the AR15; after all, even in the time of long rifle some folks owned blunderbusses and fowling pieces. Nothing says a person has to have the latest and greaest.

    The Clueless is strong with this one. Sheesh. (referring to Richard [what a dick!], of course)

    Oh, I am certainly not saying we do not have the right to AR-15s, just that, depending how historically stringent you want your interpretation of it to be, they may not be specifically protected by it.

    After all, remember that the Founding Fathers initially thought something like the Second Amendment would be unnecessary, given that the rights to self-defense and ownership of firearms were so commonplace and accepted that they would never need legal protections.
