How to disarm America by a Former State Department Diplomat

How come I am not surprised that this sort of thinking is coming out of the mouth of a former State Department “Diplomat”? A snippet from this article by Dan Simpson, a retired diplomat.

The disarmament process would begin after the initial three-month amnesty. Special squads of police would be formed and trained to carry out the work. Then, on a random basis to permit no advance warning, city blocks and stretches of suburban and rural areas would be cordoned off and searches carried out in every business, dwelling, and empty building. All firearms would be seized. The owners of weapons found in the searches would be prosecuted: $1,000 and one year in prison for each firearm. Source: toledoblade.com — The disarming of America 

Hmmm this is a guy we expected to help solve dilemmas like the Palestinian Israeli conflict? Yea you know I can see the resemblance in proposed solutions. Disarm the Victims. And never ever address the issue.

The wailing and gnashing of teeth about gun ownership in American revolves around this central issue. Gun owners want to defend themselves from the results of 40 years of liberal social experiments in criminal justice.  Politicians want to make damn sure that the public never truly understands the mindboggling statistics of recidivism in crime. How much do you think Politicians want to admit the failure of their grand experiment in feeling criminals pain?

From the Dept. of Justice:

  • Released prisoners with the highest rearrest rates were robbers (70.2%), burglars (74.0%), larcenists (74.6%), motor vehicle thieves (78.8%), those in prison for possessing or selling stolen property (77.4%), and those in prison for possessing, using, or selling illegal weapons (70.2%).
  • Within 3 years, 2.5% of released rapists were arrested for another rape, and 1.2% of those who had served time for homicide were arrested for homicide.
  • The 272,111 offenders discharged in 1994 had accumulated 4.1 million arrest charges before their most recent imprisonment and another 744,000 charges within 3 years of release.

Well gee pilgrim it seems like the best way to stop gun violence is to actually build bigger prisons and stop acting like we can rehabilitate criminals. Hardcore criminals are causing most of this “gun” violence. But liberals would rather take your guns away than to admit that their social experiments were a huge failure. See back before the “revolution” silly little crimes like Murder used to be punishable by death or actual life imprisonment. Not anymore…doesn’t it make you feel warm and fuzzy to know that people we CAUGHT, TRIED and SENT to prison for murder are walking among us? Be happy let them take your guns away so we can all sit around and watch the carnage skyrocket.

And for those folks who think neat little gadgets like Pepper Spray are useful this handly dandy little video will dispel that notion. Hint it just pisses off the truly dangerous folks. You know the ones you might just want to shoot.

  1. Not to put too fine of an edge on it, but the guy that wrote this is a “Diplomat”, as well as a fairly well established member of the “media elite”, for whatever that’s worth.

    A starker image of exactly how that kind of people think was never more clearly presented. They have the answers, and the rest of us will get into line, or they’ll send their “Specially Trained Police” out to put us in that line.

    Were that to pass, on a Federal basis, I can see at least 20, and probably 30 States leaving the Union over it. And we won’t get off into what would happen in the meantime, because some of us wouldn’t wait for the knock at our door. We’d go preemptive.

    It’s a liberal pipe dream, inspired by either too much cannabis or too little psychotropic medication, but whatever….. It did have a positive result, because every time someone comes out with something like that, I start reloading ammo.

    I’ve got 300 new rounds of .357 Magnum, 400 rounds of 9mm Parabellum, 200 30-06, and I’m working on 7.62×51 Nato right now. When I get through with that, I’ll do some .45 ACP, and some .400 CorBon, and then go to some 9×18 Makarov. I may get over it before I have to go buy more bullets, but it doesn’t matter, because I need the bullets anyway.

    I loaded over 4k rounds in the two weeks after 9-11, so this is just a ripple.

    He inspired me a little, though.

    Alternate thought, though. Is he going to institute some kind of conscription to get his “Police”? Because the attrition on them is going to be severe, I promise you.

    Heh.

  2. This prick is way too eager to start the next American Revolution. Like Leonidas said to Xerxes Molon Labe! I’ll give them the bullets first.
