This new “law” uses the same rationale as total firearm elimination – time for bows and arrows, sticks and shovels!

Next will be Tractors and Combines which destroy our topsoil… back to mules.

Why is it we want to eliminate firearms from peaceful lawful owners and hunters and still allow for the US and other countries to maintain an Armageddon stockpile of nuclear weapons?

Just one mistake and we’re all dead!

One thought on “New Laws Coming – get a Horse

  1. Here’s the real comparison. It exemplifies that most people only get emotional about an issue (like firearms abuse) when it is beat into our heads in the media. Something as important as car fatalities/safety, which truly affects us all, and affects more of us, is swept under the rug. Yet, nobody is advocating eliminating cars.

    While so many (including me) want tighter controls on firearms purchasers (better background checks), where are the rest of us when it comes time to insisting that car drivers be better trained/qualified or even ban chronic bad drivers from operating cars. Everyone knows that a car cannot kill anyone. It is the driver that does. When was the last time (if ever) a car appeared in court on any charge? Correctly, it’s the human that gets the blame.

    Oh, and when folks cry that the difference is “innocent victims” – tell that to the 300+ “innocent kids” that died in the back of a minivan broadsided by an angry, reckless, distracted, drunk or inexperienced driver, or using a car that was just mechanically unsafe to even be on the road.

    New preliminary 2016 data shared Wednesday from the National Safety Council estimates that as many as 40,000 people died in motor vehicles crashes last year, a 6% rise from 2015. If those numbers bear out, it would be a 14% increase in deaths since 2014, the biggest two-year jump in more than five decades. It also means that 2016 may have been the deadliest year on U.S. roads since 2007, the NSC says. http://fortune.com/2017/02/15/traffic-deadliest-year/

    According to the FBI, there were an estimated 17,250 murders in the U.S. last year, an 8.6 percent increase from 2015. Though the violent crime numbers rose from 2015 to 2016, the five-year and 10-year trends show an increase from 2012 (up 2.6 percent) and a decrease from 2007 (down 12.3 percent).Crime in the United States, 2016 is a compilation of information reported to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program by more than 16,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide. https://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2016-crime-statistics-released

    While deaths to anyone caused by irresponsible or bad acting people is always a tragedy, let’s level the field and have an honest discussion about getting to the real cause of all these actions – no matter which “machine” is involved, and not blame the inanimate objects which can do no harm on their own without the control of a human being.

    Finally, please note that even Barbara Boxer (D-California) admitted that she could imagine no gun law that could have stopped this recent shooting in Las Vegas. Background checks and better training only deal with the past and present. They are not “crystal balls” which predict the future behavior of anyone – regardless if operating a car or a rifle. Think about it.
