The Washington Post’s Disingenuous Poll Pushes Their Gun Grab Agenda

On Monday, the self-righteous sycophants at The Washington Post decided to add a little more darkness to American Democracy by conducting a deceitful poll that is designed to elicit the answers they want to push their preferred gun control agenda.   To add a little light to said darkness that The Post is promoting, let’s breakdown the poll and the problem with each question. Requiring background checks for all potential gun buyers The favorite talking point of the gun-grabbing left is that there aren’t background checks.  This is patently false.  Every gun purchased at a federally licensed dealer requires a background check.  Nearly dealers at gun shows are federally licensed, and perform background checks.  The only legal transactions that don’t require background checks are private sales or loans.  33 states currently do not have a law that requires background checks on private transactions, mostly because there is no enforcement mechanism for it.  As recently debated on Twit

Mass Shootings Must Stop, But The Left Has No Good Arguments

Like the cancerous growth on American society that it is, a mass shooting occurred again, this time in Odessa, Texas.  Everyone in the country is sick of this, horrified by this, and wants this to stop.  Nobody has a good answer.  As a pro-Second Amendment conservative who does not own a gun, I want to be swayed into believing that there is a magical piece of legislation that will end this epidemic.  Unfortunately, there is no legislation, but that will not stop the left from claiming that it exists.  There must be an understanding amongst those who want to have an honest conversation about this issue that the right to defend yourself is constitutionally protected, and those that have not committed crimes or gone through a due process should not have that right taken away from them.  Like nearly every other right enumerated in the Constitution, the Second Amendment already has many limits.  Automatic guns were banned in 1934.  Advanced weaponry, like tanks or missiles, are illegal.

Pulitzer Finalist: Don't Wear Red Hats, Or Else You're A Nazi

In case anyone doubts the existence of Trump Derangement Syndrome, Pulitzer Finalist for Fiction Rebecca Makkai tweeted that people shouldn't wear red hats, regardless of what it says on them. Is anyone else made really uncomfortable these days by anyone wearing any kind of red baseball cap? Like, I see one and my heart does weird shit and then I finally realize it only says Titleist or whatever. Maybe don't wear red caps anymore, normal people? She even went further and said that even fans of sports whose team colors are red shouldn't wear their team hats.  "Not worth making disenfranchised people feel unsafe".   As if that wasn't enough, she compared Trump supporters to Nazis, claiming that Hindus don't wear swastikas because it would offend/frighten people.  As a reminder, the reason that swastikas offend and/or frighten people is because the Nazi party systematically rounded up Jews hiding
