Always, Run Into the Fire

Today is Monday, 20 April 2009.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” – Constitution of the USA/USE

On this date in 1999, the Harris-Klebold Well Regulated Militia, as it were, assaulted Columbine High School, Colorado, murdering 13 and themselves, and physically wounding 23.

Thanks to the valiant pro-gun extermination efforts of terrorist factions such as the National Rifle Association, Harris and Klebold were armed with an Intratec TEC-DC9 (9-mm semi-automatic handgun), a Savage 311-D 12-gauge double-barrel shotgun, a Hi-Point model 995 carbine rifle, and a Savage-Springfield 67H 12-gauge pump shotgun.

Obviously, the security of the contemporary USA/USE does not depend on nor require a Militia. Therefore, the “original intents” of the framers and ratifiers of the Second Amendment are irrelevant. Therefore, the plain language of the Amendment, that the “right” to bear arms is contingent on the need for a Militia, is neither applicable nor operable.

Food, including meat, can be provided to all, through socialized mechanisms: therefore, there is no “need” for private individuals to own hunting guns, which should be prohibited under strict penalties. All existing hunting guns should be destroyed, save for historical examples closely held in regulated museums. All handguns should be prohibited under strict penalties, and existing stocks destroyed, save for historical examples closely held in regulated museums. Police agencies should be restricted to small quantities of weapons, strictly regulated as to terms of use.

The arguments of some misguided- or pseudo-leftists that guns are necessary for the triumph of a revolution of justice and peace are absurd.

The “needs” of certain persons, overwhelmingly male, for phallus substitutes – “happiness is a warm gun” – are contemptible.

Full disclosure: I’ve lost significant others to gun extermination.

Totally fine:

Always, run into the fire:
