Rant of the Week: A Gun Owner's Wishes for the New Year

I know, you’re supposed to make New Year’s resolutions, but the fact is I did that for the better part of 50 years and I don’t think I ever kept one of them. The problem is I can resist anything except temptation. So I take the road less traveled, and every year I come up with my New Year’s Wish List.

In no particular order, my 2018 wish list is:

World peace. Can’t we all just get along?

All golden retrievers will have happy, loving homes with lots of squeak toys and ample game birds to retrieve…

You didn’t think my list was really going to be that touchy–feely stuff, did you? I mean, I carry a gun everywhere I go, I don’t have a lot of faith in achieving world peace, let alone anything akin to it in Chicago. And let’s be specific about this, national concealed carry falls under the 14th Amendment. The purpose of the 14th Amendment is to give Congress the power to act against state infringements of national civil rights as recently explained in an article called “Congress should use constitutional power to force states to honor gun rights”.

So, without further ado, my real wish list:

Give John Q. Public the freedom to travel anywhere in the United States and be able to carry a really big gun with a large capacity magazine.

Have anti-gunners take that statute of a revolver with the barrel twisted into a knot that’s in front of the U.N. and stick it where the sun don’t shine. In fact, they can take the entire United Nations complex and stick it where the sun don’t shine, too.

And while we’re on the subject of the United Nations, they can also take their 348-page Agenda 21 and toss that away, as well. The United States is already full of liberal, anti-gun, freedom hating whackjobs; we’re all full up on stupidity.

Read my lips – they are not assault weapons! They’re not military weapons. They’re not automatic weapons. AR-15s are modern sporting rifles, and I don’t need to justify why I need them any more than dumb comedians can justify why anyone should give a damn about what they think about the Second Amendment.

Eliminate ATF entirely, or as an alternative, since that entire infrastructure already exists, change the mission of the Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives group to more in keeping with its name – such as a fraternity party planning operation.

Could ANTIFA wingnuts make up their minds and get this war they want to start? I’ve been practicing to the tune of about a hundred rounds a day nicely divided between carbine and pistol. The problem is I’ve been doing this for about two years since you first started whining like petulant children who don’t get a second container of chocolate milk before your nap. All this shooting is beginning to deplete my ammo supply. I’m down about 25 percent now. And by the way, would you please Google the definition of fascism – because what you’re doing is its definition.

And finally, for the love of all that’s holy, will the conspiracy theorists just stop? It’s embarrassing to truly intelligent gun owners. It isn’t theory, liberals really are conspiring to disarm you. It has nothing to do with the children or the victims of gun violence. Liberals don’t give a rat’s butt about innocent victims of violence. They step over victims of violence to get closer to the news camera, so they can talk about how much they care and if only we had one more gun law.

If they really did care, Bloomberg would be putting all that money and effort into real solutions rather than disarming law-abiding citizens. Open your eyes, when a truck runs over and kills a bunch of people and then liberals immediately say we need more gun control, they’re not in the least bit concerned about those victims. They want your guns, because an armed John Q. Public is the only real deterrent to an oppressive government. Law-abiding gun owners are the line of demarcation between a society of the people, by the people, and for the people and a totalitarian government.

You are the militia: Be armed, be trained and be ready in 2018.
