Liberals have been clamoring for some time to have “common sense” gun laws enacted. That sounds reasonable. Then, they proceed to regale us with the need for laws that are already on the books, or impractical ideas that would never work. Never fear! I have a solution.
It’s not a new law per se, but something that every liberal who is serious about solving the problem can do. It might cost a few bucks up front, but, as you’re always telling us, “If it saves just one life it’ll be worth it”, so I expect close to 100% participation. (Stop laughing!)
Now to be honest, I am basing this solution on what hundreds of liberals have told us about the ease of buying a gun. We’ve been told that it’s literally easier to buy a gun than to buy a book. Teen Vogue recently
regurgitated liberal talking points reminded us that it’s:
* Easier to buy a gun than get a driver’s license
(which is a neat trick, since you need to obtain a driver’s license to buy a gun, so you technically have to do MORE to buy a gun!)
* Easier to buy a gun than to adopt a pet
* Easier to buy a gun than to get married
* Easier to buy a gun than to get an abortion, and
* Easier to buy a gun than to get an internship or a full time job.
At first, I thought I would challenge liberals to attempt to purchase a legal handgun, to see just how much more difficult it is than they imagine. But then, I thought, what is the liberal going to do with that gun? They don’t want it, don’t know how to use it or properly store it. In their hands, it could become a hazard. But what if every liberal committed to the elimination of gun violence were to purchase a gun illegally?
Hear me out, this is good! Liberals tell us it is easier to buy an illegal gun than to buy a book, so, why don’t they just prove to all us hard-headed, gun-toting conservatives just how easy it is? Here’s what you do…go down to wherever you think it is that illegal guns are sold…street corners, back alleys, gun shows…wherever! Take cash. Most criminals probably aren’t set up to take MasterCard or Visa. Purchase the gun for cash. You can haggle a little, but remember…”if it saves just one life it”ll be worth it”. So don’t be cheap.
Next, you take the gun directly to the nearest police station. They can dispose of it for you and also check to see if it’s been used in any crimes. And then, this is the good part, you tell the police exactly where you bought the gun and give a description of the person who sold it to you. If possible, try to drop the gun into a bag and maybe it will have some usable fingerprints for the police. Take video of the exchange if you can do it surreptitiously. It may not hold up in court for putting this guy away, but should go a long way in mitigating any charges towards you for purchasing an illegal firearm.
It’s a veritable threefer! You have irrefutable proof of just how easy it is to buy a gun, shutting the mouths of all those pro-gun types. You have taken an illegal firearm off the street AND taken an illegal gun dealer off the street as well! What more could you ask for? If it’s that easy to buy a gun, it’s just common sense, right? If liberals from coast to coast take millions of illegal guns off the street and likewise thousands of illegal gun dealers, everybody wins! Right?
So, what’ll it be liberals? Up to the challenge? Beuller? Bueller??
