    This is old, but I can't find it with "search." Apologies if it's already been posted.

    This guy is our greatest gift. A bona fide liberal just validated, step by step, what some people would have dismissed as a paranoid fantasy.

    I love this line:

    "Unfortunately, right now we can't. The political will is there, but the institutions are not. Honestly, this is a good thing. If we passed a law tomorrow banning all firearms, we would have massive noncompliance."

    Political will is there but massive noncompliance? It's very telling what that reveals about this guy's utter contempt for democracy by the unwashed masses.

    What a well-written bit of ugliness. It was so right-on, I was surprised "segue" was misspelled. Most of us know how to proceed on an AWB but this spells it out for all to see. As we know it starts with background checks, a five minute deal. However, computers don't forget. Ever. Even when we try to make them do so. The checks leave a trail to probable gun owners.

    I am sorry to say this is why I'm not an NRA member. I'd love to be but the list of members is a tool that is readily accessible to hackers. If smart teenagers can hack the banks, and credit agencies --even the Pentagon!, they can hack the NRA.

    We may defeat this current threat but I doubt it. UBC is the first step in the long journey to ... "Honey, the police are at the door.":(

    Scarier still is that I voted "no" to the poll at the end, and I was a minority! Hopefully the poll was as bogus as the article, which could have well been written by any of the "educated" people with whom I work.

    I voted no as well. I must have misread the result. Here's a term I like: "Massive non-compliance."

    When I voted 91% were saying no. Looks like the news is getting out there. I have been trying to tell people that this is how liberals think for a long time. They make small steps, just slowly limiting freedom a little at a time in the name of security. Then years later you wake up and have socialism instead of freedom.

    We need to fight back harder against this slow push to steal our freedom. When they call for a weapons ban because of a school shooting we need to call for lifting gun free zones in schools. When they call for limiting the amount of ammo, we need to call for larger magazines. When they call for socialized medicine, we need to call for removing government regulations on medicine. The right needs to stop worrying about seeming extreme or offending the left. Every time they give just a little to seem fair, or in the name of compromise, we just walk farther down the road to socialism.

    Thank you for sharing this blog. We need to all learn a lesson from it.

    Lots of usage and mechanics errors, lots of obviously biased and unsupported opinions, many cases of misapplied or faulty terminology. In my role as a college writing instructor, I give it a C-. In my role as an American, I give it a solid F.

    Still, this blogger apparently really believes what he or she writes, and there are a few points which actually make sense, albeit in opposition to the blogger's intent.

    Wouldn't it be refreshing if all the antis were as honest about their true intent?

    Well, there is the mother of all antis herself:

    True, though, Feinstein didn't reveal her whole intent, but at least she admitted that she wanted to confiscate all rifles with arbitrary scary-looking features. :rolleyes:

    Wow, the author definitely laid out a road map. However, it doesn't take a genius to come up with the plan. Basically he/she copied the model that Chicago used to institute a defacto handgun ban. That has obviously worked so incredibly well... The author blames the majority of gun deaths on NRA gun toting whackos, which means the author (obviously) knows nothing about the statistics surrounding gun violence and death.

    I'm really upset after reading this... It really shakes me up to confront the fact that there are people out there who really believe that this is the only way to make our society safe. They have no problem tossing away selected rights simply because the choose not to participate, and doing so brings the illusion of safety. I wonder who will defend The Daily Kos when we have been disarmed? Once the 2nd amendment is removed, the rest of the constitution is easily carved away.

    Not the smartest guy ever. "It takes one bullet to kill a person" really? Wow and did you know it takes one baseball bat? Maybe thats why there are more people killed with baseball bats every year in america then guns. How come massive noncompliance is to big a issue with those to talk about a ban? Its not like they are covered by a amendment. Oh, and now we see it. Its not about safety, its about control. Knowingly or not, most of out present day media are Traitors!

    Humm I think I have saw this before. Somewhere i think i read that it was written by a gun owner to wake people up to this tactic. The lost in a boating accident really gives it away as does the 7.62x54 is my favorite remark.

    If they banned free speech...I bet a bunch of people would have something to say about it. If they ban the right to keep and bear arms....not too hard to figure out what would happen.

    Those of us "clinging" to our guns are not the ones who are showing ourselves to be scared of the world, it is the gun grabbers who look like they are scared to go out into the world.

    daily left-wing kos?

    look at the poll on that article!

    poll
    a total gun ban in the next 10 years?
    yes! 1% 191 votes.
    no. 91% 9526 votes.
    pie is delicious. 6% 663 votes.

    "How to Ban Guns: A step by step, long term process" by sporks
    another pseudnonymous[sic] pundit

    I will agree with sporks on this: "Canada has a national firearms registry. We need to copy their model."
    After 17 years of heavy costs (2.7 billion dollars) and little benefit (corroborating evidence in 4 cases that already had suspect, motive, and solid evidence), Canada has abandoned the national long gun registry as a failed experiment.

    "segway" for "segue" priceless!!

    And they can likely buy direct from DHS at volume rates. This will make up for the loss of grass profits.

    Nothing is stopping you from sending them $$ towards the cause. You're doing that, right ?

    No, but I'll be doing so in the future. It's now or never in my view.

    This was a post written by some pro-gun folks to troll an anti-gun board.

    As noted, the references to the "boating accident", 7.62x54R, and the specific knowledge of gun types (I can guarantee you that virtually NO anti-gun people have the faintest clue what a falling block is) really give it away.

    No, sporks is not a pro gun guy. Look him up. Hes vehemently anti gun but also has done extensive research and knows alot about guns. He claims to have historical interest in milsurp, although he doesnt believe in people owning them. Hes one of the few taking the path of know your enemy. He also has been in the military. He just refuses to believe the facts that gun ownership stops crime.

    I voted for pie. I like pie. Pie is good. Gun control is not about guns. It is about control. Our leaders want us to stay divided and arguing while they slip the yoke over our heads. Don't forget it.

    Josh Sugermann, head of the VPC, is another anti-gunner who seems to know guns quite well. He even has a 01 FFL at the VPC's office in D.C., though I doubt he does many transfers. I've read both his books and most of what's on the VPC's website. Sugermann actually comes out and says what he means much like the article linked to by the OP.
