Idiot Savants

It's long past time the idiot savants proposing more freedom restrictions, that have never worked, recalled from the education they blithely ignored, that the biggest school massacre (45 dead) in U.S. history wasn't accomplished with any sort of firearms, but rather with dynamite, nearly a hundred years ago, in Michigan, and at a time when it was completely legal to go down to the hardware store and purchase machine guns, cash, and carry out, in about two minutes. So much for easy access to guns being the problem, then or ever.

(Proof, if you desired such, that historical facts to Leftards are like kryptonite to Superman, as Larry Elder frequently notes.)

You'll never stop deranged lunatics from killing scads of people, because they can.
Especially not by banning one object in their arsenal. They'll poison people, with things they can pick by the side of the road; they'll set the buildings on fire ( Wait, geniusii, you thought you were going to ban fire...?!?! ), they'll run them over with trucks. Or whatever is to hand.
It's just what they do. Like rabid dogs, kill them where found. Recidivism drops to 0%, and you dissuade a legion of would-be copycats.

The two most recent shootings, about which there's an unwarranted fuss on absolute grounds, pale into utter insignificance beside the weekly and annual combined toll of death and destruction that is Chicongo, every day for years. With hardly a peep from anyone, let alone the Party Organ Media jackholes. And then there's the Baltimorons. Detroitistan. The District of Corruption. Atlanta. And on and on.

Overwhelmingly, the problem areas are run by totalitarian Democrats, from coast to coast, (and invariably, with the most draconian anti-gun laws they can pass, yet the worst crime in the nation, and they can't figure out the exact correlation), and we're still shoveling trainloads of tax money into the furnace for the idiotic LBJ boondoggles called "The Great Society" and "The War On Poverty".

They didn't work. They never could.
They just made things orders of magnitude worse.
Exactly as designed.

This is why Communism is a non-starter with a pragmatic people. And why they keep trying to import enough ignorant illiterate jackasses from Shitholias and Trashcanistans to overwhelm the common sense population demographically, and vote it into being.
Hot Tip, Leftards: We see the bunny up your sleeve.

It didn't make society great, poverty is still winning (because it's caused by stupid life choices, not lack of means, and to fix stupid, you need a bigger hammer, not a hammock), and crime in this country is >gasp!< a function of race, culture, and stupidity, not poverty.

Crime went down in the Depression. The real criminals had their heyday in the boom times of the Roaring Twenties, under Prohibition and easy virtue. The celebutard criminals of the Thirties were, then exactly as now, mainly oddballs and media creations to sell papers at flagging yellow-sheet rags.

Crime in this country amongst strictly whites is lower than it is in Belgium, and among non-Hispanic whites, it's lower than crime in Lichtenstein. (Common Core grads, look it up.) Barrios and ghetto 'hoods produce most of the crime in this country, most of the criminals, and most of the victims. Mass shooters in general, and criminal white people overall, are both as rare as hen's teeth in relative and absolute terms, and always have been.

The only thing "Diversity for its own sake" strengthens is that class, the prison industry, and the metastasized police state we all decry, from cop to judge, and everyone in between, including the indispensable instruments, the perps.

Look no farther than Europe to see who's doing all the criminaling, including making Stockholm the rape capital of Europe. That's not being done by Abba fans, but rather, by hordes of unnamed Worthy Oriental Gentlemen. You could look it up.

Nota bene: That is not, racist fucktards, saying that all black or brown people are therefore criminals.

It's saying until you address root causes in those communities of why they think crime is a winning idea, you won't fix it.
Poverty is not a root cause.
A culture of stupidity, lawlessness, and learned helplessness is.

A great start would be honesty about who and where the criminals really are, and making crime not pay off, primarily by making its pursuit, apprehension, and draconian punishment a greater priority than is subsidizing welfare queens and single mothers, and driving fathers out of the picture, exactly as the entire government was warned would happen when the topic came up, by an earnest young 1964 Democrat bureaucrat (before that condition involved ritual cerebral mutilation and lobotomization by the party and its apparatchiks) in the Department of Heath, Education, and Welfare named Daniel Patrick Moynihan (back when it wasn't considered knee-jerk Raaaacissssssss! to refer to them, even in print by Democrat leadership, as "negroes").

So much for income redistribution as a solution.

There is also no law, or group of laws you can pass to end crazy people.
But you can end the ones you catch, with a rope or bullet (or, if you're squeamish, a needle).
And you could start putting the violent ones and violence-prone back into lifelong institutionalized care, rather than roaming free-range crazy, while decent folks are forced to live behind barred windows and vault doors instead. If only for the novelty of the idea in the last two generations.
Letting them run free and loose hasn't worked for one minute either, and it's another failed Liberal Stupidity Policy (but I repeat myself) that needs to be abandoned, and with vigor.

And you can stop giving them fame beyond Ludicrous Levels, and stop analyzing and glorifying their last public act of insanity, under the guise of pushing more socialist totalitarianism down our throats, for our own good.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” - C.S. Lewis

And you could stop subsidizing fatherless welfare moms with seven children from six baby daddies tomorrow. Allow one set check amount for one child, and cut welfare to a fraction, where the amount is the same as number of out-of-wedlock births. I.e. someone with 2 fatherless bastards gets 1/2 that amount, someone with 3 gets 1/3rd, someone with 5 gets 1/5th, etc. In a generation, that number will be 2%, not 99%, of the target population.

Then, stop importing people here (legally and illegally) from Third World shitholes, and let Adam Smith's Invisible Hand of the capitalistic marketplace drive native employment and wages for actual, productive labor through the clouds. For those that will work, anyways; the rest are shiftless wastrels, for whom there should be a simple choice between unrelieved poverty, or chain gangs. But not so much as a dime of public largesse.

Income redistribution schemes are always corrosively idiotic, and lead to Somalia, Cuba, and Venezuela like gravity makes rocks fall off mountains. This is Econ 101 stuff.

Trying real Communism, Moar!, Harder!, Faster!, is going to get you gun violence like it's 1939. You don't want to open that ball, unless you have a death wish, on both a personal and a civilizational level.

And we have a Bill of Rights to warn the thoroughgoing morons in government (that would be ALL of them):
"You fucktards can't touch this!". Ever!
Democracy is a mob, always has been, and the Founders knew this in their bones.
We're a republic, not a democracy, and tinkering with the original blueprints has only fucked us harder and faster, and it gets worse every time they tinker with a successful original blueprint.

Persisting in the delusion that something needs monkeying with, by people 60-80 IQ points stupider than the original authors, gets you craptastic Hollywood movies, and the abomination that is our current Leviathan government.

But if you really want the guns, you're going to get them.

Bullets first.

Hand to God on that.

Call that toss in the air.
We'll be loading magazines.

Did they ban dynamite from public use? Has this ever happened again? Thank you.

Not dynamite, specifically, but an explosive nonetheless, and just as effective....

"On the morning of April 19, 1995, an ex-Army soldier and security guard named Timothy McVeigh parked a rented Ryder truck in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. He was about to commit mass murder.

Inside the vehicle was a powerful bomb made out of a deadly cocktail of agricultural fertilizer, diesel fuel, and other chemicals. McVeigh got out, locked the door, and headed towards his getaway car. He ignited one timed fuse, then another.

At precisely 9:02 a.m., the bomb exploded.

Within moments, the surrounding area looked like a war zone. A third of the building had been reduced to rubble, with many floors flattened like pancakes. Dozens of cars were incinerated and more than 300 nearby buildings were damaged or destroyed.

The human toll was still more devastating: 168 souls lost, including 19 children, with several hundred more injured.

It was the worst act of homegrown terrorism in the nation’s history."

Democrat: “The cities have gun laws, but they don’t work because people bring guns from the country!”

Me: “That’s been proven false, but let’s assume it’s correct. So, what do you propose we do about that?”

Democrat: “Ban guns everywhere in the nation! Then they can’t bring them into the cities.”

Me: “So then what will you do about the guns being brought in from Mexico? You’ll have to seal the border and not allow anyone or anything in or out.”

Democrat: “That’s racist.”

Explosives are legally gettable and/or easily made. And yes, explosives have been used to kill people since then.

For those who won't look up the statistics themselves:
Blacks are one eighth of the population.
One in three black men is in jail or on parole.
Three fifths of all violent crime is caused by black men.
Half of the remaining crime is caused by Latinos.
Latinos are one quarter of the population.

Excellent essay and no dee em vee greengo or tee ef tee aah to wade through.

I believe Don will sign any ban that makes it to his desk, making me more of a felon-in-waiting.

I never wanted my kid to face this, but she’s Ranya Bardiwell age now and I’m 50.

We’ll have to be shoulder to shoulder, exhilarating and terrifying at the same time.

It’ll be like NZ, about 20 will be turned in and the rest put into safe keeping, but the effect will be the same, law abiding folks will not bring them out....until they do.

Get your 22s and the van ready. -Lawless

I think the problem of crime in the inner cities has multiple interlocking causes:

Young men who lack the moral guidance of older men, especially fathers (because the older men ALSO lacked that guidance, now being in the second or third generation where bastardy is the norm). Failure to have a boot toe applied to your tender posterior means you lack that list of "I shouldn't do that" items.

A culture that doesn't value education.

An environment of poverty where those young men see basically three ways out: professional sports, music/entertainment, or crime, and as noted above they lack the moral compass so crime is an acceptable means. Sports and entertainment are difficult fields to make it big in, so that leaves crime.

Back when Colon Kaperprick was a thing, I thought that if he really WANTED to help blacks, he'd go into those areas where the life expectancy for young black men is low because they're likely to be killed by other young black men. Instead of farting around taking a knee during the Anthem, he could open trade schools in Chicago, Detroit, DC, Camden, Baltimore, etc. Teach those young men to weld, fix cars, operate heavy machinery, be carpenters, plumbers, electricians etc. No, they won't make $6 million a year like he does, but they'll have a job, can have a home and a family, then THEIR children will be the engineers and accountants, then THEIRS will be the doctors and lawyers. Problem solved, but it would require effort and wouldn't get him talked about on TV every day.

"then THEIR children will be the engineers and accountants, then THEIRS will be the doctors and lawyers."

I'm not going to comment directly. Lemme come at the problem from a different slant, so to speak (for those not in on the joke, I'm Chinese [1]). "My people" aren't ever going to be NFL linemen, nor NBA starters [2] regardless of economic prosperity, stable family life, work ethic, or even infinite "midnight basketball" provided by city services during childhood. We just don't have the substrate for it. Anyone who chooses to use this inconvenient fact about Chinese people as an analogy to something else is of course free to do so.

Many human-group characteristics are indeed normally (Gaussian) distributed, but the means are different. Every group has outliers on the right ("good") end of the curve, but to expect equal representation proportional to the general population is an impossibility, and any government policy that forces society to achieve that goal (which is NOT worthwhile) is doomed to failure. But whilst careening toward that failure, such a policy will breed resentment, hatred and cynicism, destabilize society, and ultimately do more harm than good.

Cases like are so interesting to me. It reminds me of the guy who built a KillDozer in his garage and leveled half of town. That's why I'm more interested these days with targeting the human side of the mass shooting issue. One bad day could make a difference in a person's life. That and a heck of a lot of drive and gumption gets you cases like this.

"he could open trade schools in Chicago, Detroit, DC, Camden, Baltimore, etc. Teach those young men to weld, fix cars, operate heavy machinery, be carpenters, plumbers, electricians etc."

--except that illegal immigration has killed the skilled trades. ALL the construction trades are full of illegals and the probably illegal. Electricians are the last holdout, but even there, "helpers" are pushing out white and black, and the general economics of the whole thing (a race to the bottom) is pushing owners to collapse their companies and just take on the jobs they can personally handle. They don't worry about OSHA, INS, or being the low bidder, they just get to do the jobs that really require skill and experience. The kind of thing they liked best anyway.

--all the entry level jobs that used to teach kids how to be a part of the world of work have been filled with adult immigrants. Food service. Grass cutting. Snow removal. Newspaper delivery. All filled with immigrant adults.

--I was doing oppo research (listening to NPR or Pacifica Radio) and some activist in Chicongo was going on about how they want "goot jobs", where are all the "goot jobs". Who the hell would give DeVon a "goot job" when DeVon is covered by visible gang tats, has a rap sheet filled with petty crime, thinks smoking dope anywhere and any time is a right, and doesn't acknowledge ANYONE'S authority over him? By the time DeVon is ready to start working, he's already unemployable. There is some accommodation for those who really want to work, I see tattoos and 'placas' on the cashiers and baggers at grocery stores, and on waitstaff and kitchen staff. Clear evidence of gang affiliation and prison time are common in certain oil and gas service positions, but these are ADULTS who have somehow had a change of heart, not kids entering the workforce.

I don't see a solution that doesn't involve a huge die off.

Plant is on the west side of Chiraq, had a local youth who quit the gangs and came to work for us, we taught him how to mig weld. WE ahd tapped him for additional training to be a department lead when he got older. That's not gonna happen, the gang five blocks from the plant (Garfield Park) shot him three times the face with a rifle in broad daylight in front of his house. Message sent is nobody gets out of the gangs. Kids wanting to work for us fell to zero. We now hire released perps who only last through probation and halfway house time. As soon as they don't have to show taht they have a job "dey gone."

I love that C. S. Lewis quote. The problem we face now is that the Left holds the whip hand over all the major institutions of our society. The robber barons are the omnipotent moral busybodies.

And never forget that historically, they are used mostly by lefties. Weather Underground, FARC, SLA, Black Panthers -- all dedicated to bringing about the utopia of socialism through blowing people up. Heck, WWI was ostensibly because the left "anarchists" The Black Hand tried unsuccessfully to blow up Ferdinand and Sophie.

Explosives are so impersonal. I'm a big fan of John Wayne:

"I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them."

"I've always followed my father's advice: he told me, first to always keep my word and, second, to never insult anybody unintentionally. If I insult you, you can be goddamn sure I intend to. And, third, he told me not to go around looking for trouble. "

Words to live by. Avoid crowds.

You mean culture matters? I’m shocked, shocked I tell you! Exactly correct, race isn’t the issue, it’s what culture one adheres to. Hood and cholo culture produce predictable outcomes. Pedo culture produces predictable outcomes. Jewish culture produces predictable outcomes. Where it becomes problematic is Christian culture, because that is about as firm as warm jello. Our individualist culture that is what the mass media cheerleads (along with communist culture) could be considered the sprinkles on top as this don’t judge, no, shame mindset is absolutely detrimental to a culture that should all be rowing in the same direction. Individuals decide they want to row backwards, or maybe not,bother to stick an oar in the water and let someone else do all the work.
