Cake And Compromise – Illustrated Guide To Gun Control

Yea.. this analogy is perfect:

Gun-Control-Compromise

LawDogFiles wrote the text, HSGCA (“Hypocrisy and Stupidity Of Gun Control” – the most retarded acronym I’ve ever seen) illustrated it.

>> LOL the bitter impotence is delicious.

Okay, I’ll give you bitter, but you think our anger is impotent? The anger that has been building over this bullshit for the last 40 years is anything but impotent:

No knee-jerk bleeding heart gun legislation after every psycho rampage: Our anger blocked it.
Sunsetting of the Assault weapons ban: Our anger blocked it.
New gun laws that expand access to firearms instead of limiting it: our anger pushed for that.
The 1990s wave of concealed carry at the state level? Our anger.
The 2000s wave of open carry? Our anger.
No gun show background check requirement: Our anger.

The attitude of people like you has poisoned the well and any proposed legislation is immediately suspect. We built our organizations, and funded them, and dug in for a long, perhaps centuries-long resistance to being disarmed. And at the end of the day, it’s our legislative agenda that get’s written into law. Because we’re organized and you’re not. Impotence? Yeah, but not on the side of the aisle you seem to think it’s on.

The 1934 Act was repealed > So you got that half of the cake back
The 1968 Act prevents people from buying grenades > We’ll keep that piece of the cake thanks
The Brady Bill was repealed > You got that cake back though
The Smith & Wesson Agreement fell apart when Bush Jr took office > You got that cake back
The School Safety and Law Enforcement Improvement Act > That’s background checks for those convicted of misdemeanor crimes that deal with Domestic Violence and being found (in court) to be Mentally Defective… and you’re mad about that piece of the cake?

So this comic is stupid and wrong, but it will resonate deeply with the NRA gun crowd because they’re apparently too stupid to realize they’ve gotten 95% of their cake back. Buncha stupid people with guns. Yeeeeee HAW!

Are you retarded? March 22, 2014 at 03:26 am

1934 was not repealed, it’s been expanded through regulation via the ATF.
The Brady Bill was not repealed, it remains in effect.

The ONLY bit of national gun control legislation that is no longer in effect was that ridiculous provision in the crime bill, which sunset in 2004.

You’ve been watching the liberal wackos at MSNBC too long me thinks, it’s given you seriously incorrect information.

“The 1934 Act was repealed > So you got that half of the cake back”
No, it wasn’t. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Firearms_Act

“The 1968 Act prevents people from buying grenades”
Okay, we’re going to boil an entire piece of legislation down to one little detail we like and call the whole thing good, the PATRIOT Act requires a warrant for seizing voice mail messages. So by your logic, we should keep it, yeah? No.

The Brady Bill was repealed > You got that cake back though
Once again, it most certainly was not. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brady_Handgun_Violence_Prevention_Act

“The Smith & Wesson Agreement fell apart when Bush Jr took office > You got that cake back”
No, this is partially wrong and wholly misleading. There was a large scale blow back by the consumers, a large boycott cut Smith & Wesson’s sales by half, this lead to a crippling financial crisis for S&W that ultimately resulted in it’s sell to Saf-T-Hammer, who upon acquisition, renounced the agreement. It had nothing to do with Bush and in fact, there was an investigation targeted at the leaders of the boycott for two years into Bush’s first term.

“The School Safety and Law Enforcement Improvement Act > That’s background checks for those convicted of misdemeanor crimes that deal with Domestic Violence and being found (in court) to be Mentally Defective… and you’re mad about that piece of the cake?”
No, it is not.

Do you live in an alternate reality where all of this is true or are you just pulling shit out of your ass?

Aside from “Are you retarded?” and “Jack” handing you your uninformed behind on a platter beautifully, name-calling is a great way to totally discredit yourself right from the start. Also, should the SHTF ever, God forbid, YOU along with all those other anti-gun folks, will be hiding behind people WITH guns.

1934- NFA has never been repealed, it remains in full effect and is about to get worse in July

1968- okay, grenades. Sure. I’ll give you grenades. Never mind that it would actually be surprisingly easy to build an effective frag grenade using easily and legally available materials. But the GCA was also a gross overstep of federal authority. The GCA is the law that makes it such that for someone like me, who lives in Ohio, but less than a mile from the Indiana border, if I want to buy a gun, I have to go to the shop in my home state that is half an hour away and can’t go to the shop in a different state that is 15 minutes away. That extra half hour (round trip) of driving sure sounds like something that will make people safer

Brady Bill- Has not been repealed. Originally the Act was the law to require a background check prior to sale and a 5 day waiting period. The only thing that has gone is the 5 days. Why? Because in 1993 when enacted, a background check couldn’t be conducted instantly. Dealers had to take down buyer information, send it to the FBI and await a response. Once NICS was established, the same info could be called in, an FBI examiner can almost immediately access any records that would disqualify the buyer and return a response in minutes. No need to wait. The waiting period was never a “cooling off” time or some such thing, just necessary to allow the background check requirement to be fulfilled.

I don’t know much about the S&W agreement, so I won’t comment on anything I’m not knowledgeable about.

I’ll give you wife-beaters and psycho’s, but with a slight change- felony convictions were disqualifying offenses long prior. The only misdemeanor that is a DQ is domestic violence. If you ask me, DV should be a felony offense and therefore it wouldn’t be necessary for it to be its own category.

seems to me that if we take the constitution seriously, any of gun laws that limit the ability of a citizen of the United States could and should be deemed unconstitutional. I am a gun owner, and a constitutional libertarian, and would rather see all gun laws back to the NFA of 1939 repealed, but see the wisdom in some checks, on criminal background, and mental capacity. in the grand scale of things, the comic is largely accurate, some states have made it nearly impossible to purchase or possess a firearm. That would be an excessively difficult to get that “piece of cake” to get back due to anti-citizen, anti-constitution politicians in those states. it is a slippery slope much like socialism and federalized police, that once started down, it is nearly impossible to come back up.

Not ONE SINGLE gun law EVER passed is NOT an infringement on a right that says CLEARLY that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” NONE! Not one!

More Truth January 6, 2016 at 04:13 pm

If Americans could readily buy and equip themselves with military grade weaponry, armor, drones, etc. then the government wouldn’t need to take so much tax money on behalf of our military because we would probably have enough weaponry and effective militias to (A.) Protect ourselves from foreign threats, and (B.) Protect ourselves from domestic threats, like the government. We’re supposed to be able to have weaponry equal to that of our government. However the government is able to make a profit by being our only means of reasonable defense against foreign threats. And in reality we are easier to control when we cannot contest our own government. Could you imagine if our government decided they were going to take over the world, and the people said no however the government said that’s too bad, and whoever spoke out against them was put into a camp, and then they were used as free labor until they were nothing but skin and bones? That already happened, you see Hitler first made everyone in Nazi Germany register their weaponry, and afterwards he disarmed the populace and the secret police began taking away “trouble makers” and eventually they began taking away everyone of a certain religion. Residents of Israel settlements near buffer zones are given automatic weapons by their military for protection, and their deaths related to guns are lower than America’s gun related deaths which shows having the availability of guns doesn’t cause murders. In America even if you took everyone’s guns their would still be atrocious acts of violence because the violent acts aren’t committed simply because we have guns, they are committed because of the state of our country. They are literally being driven mad because they have to work to the bone just to survive, work even harder to the bone if they want to get an education, just so they can have a reprieve from poverty and all the while a select few have 99 percent of the wealth in the country while all the hardworking people that even make that possible share the last 1 percent of wealth. That means that there are so many depressed tired and stressed people that can barely muster up the will to keep trudging through this misery which is their life all thanks to their corrupt and greedy countrymen who use our government to rob us blind and keep us working subserviently. From a Social Science standpoint it’s simple. Action reaction. When conditions are made to be miserable for the occupants of a country, there will be atrocious acts of violence committed by people who are suffering from the conditions.
