Actually Caitlyn, 'Liberals' Don't OWN Assault Rifles, And If They Had Their Way...

Caitlyn Jenner caught on tape joking that James Hodgkinson might have killed or wounded a lot more people if 'liberals' weren't lousy shots.

Actually, Caitlyn, 'liberals' don't OWN Soviet assault rifles. Not only do they not own them, but if they had their way James Hodgkinson wouldn't have had one either.

1. 'Liberals' like Diane Feinstein tried to ban assault rifles in 2013, including ones loaded with strip magazines, like the one Hodgkinson used. He fired up to 100 shots, which wouldn't have been possible if not for ordinary citizens being allowed to own semi-automatic rifles that load with strip magazines. Whenever mass shooters have been stopped, they've been stopped when they had to stop firing to reload. Stop them from being able to do that quickly, and fewer people will die. It's not rocket science.

2. Hodgkinson had a history of domestic violence. Liberals have tried to prevent people with a history of domestic violence from buying guns, and conservatives have fought them all the way to the Supreme Court. Heck, WE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW CLARENCE THOMAS COULD TALK until he spoke up to defend the rights of wife-beaters to own guns.

3. Hodgkinson was a left-wing populist, not a liberal. A left-wing populist who was mentally unstable, and had a history of violence...and he never would have been allowed to own lethal firearms if not for the efforts of conservatives dancing on strings held by the gun industry plutocrats.


No, banning ordinary citizens from having these weapons won't stop criminals from having them. But it will make it a lot easier to spot and charge criminals, because they'll be the only ones who DO have them. Furthermore, banning semi-automatic assault rifles would probably cut the number of people killed by these nutcases down by 75%, by forcing them to stop firing and reload more often.

And, Caitlyn, it doesn't matter what you've got between your legs. Once again you've proved that what's between your ears is pure shit.

1. liberals I know own weapons, including assualt weapons, just becasue you are a liberal

doesn't mean you don't have weapons.. I am liberal, I own and my wife own weapons, we know how to shoot and target practice regularly, we don't have any assault weapons only because I deem them not as effective as shotguns for defense.

16. You can be a liberal without agreeing with every plank in the liberal governing platform, but

but the liberal governing platform usually has the following planks with regards to gun safety.

1. Law abiding citizens ARE allowed to own weapons for hunting, personal defense etc.,

2. The purpose of owning guns is for self defense (the natural right of self preservation) and recreation...and NOT to give citizens the power to overthrow their own government with violence if they believe it has become tyrannical. Gun nuts often cite Madison's federalist paper on that one, but what Madison said came nowhere near to that. Also, Washington's suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion pretty much proved that the Founders didn't believe this.

3. But that ordinary citizens should NOT be allowed to own extraordinary weapons, such as fully automatic assault rifles, semi-automatic assault rifles that can be easily converted to full auto, and reloaded quickly, machine guns, artillery pieces (cannons, mortars), grenades, grenade launchers, poison gas grenades etc. All of these things may be 'arms,' but liberals generally don't that access to ALL types of arms should be guaranteed under the 2nd Amendment.

4. People with mental illnesses should not be allowed to own guns. (How that principle is applied is sometimes a little contentious.)

5. People with a proven history of violence or domestic abuse shouldn't be able to own them.

6. Convicted felons shouldn't be allowed to own weapons.

7. Some kind of a background check/ licensing requirement/ registry system must be kept in place to make SURE that criminals, nutcases, and people with a history of domestic violence don't have access to guns. (The gun lobby fights this one the hardest, because if you can prevent this one, planks 4,5, and 6 are taken care of.)

Gun fetishers are usually against the last six points, which doesn't make sense to me.


Saying that liberals want to take away ALL guns is a familiar straw man argument for the gun lobby, and it's not a general liberal governing philosophy. (A few liberals might believe it, but most don't.) That straw man works pretty well for the gun lobby because then ordinary citizens have visions of the government taking away their rifles, pistols, and shotguns under the law, while criminals who don't care about the law remain armed to the teeth.

It's a pretty good racket for making lots of money selling firearms. (Pretty good racket for selling lots of coffins, too.)

Step 1: Make it easy for criminals to get guns. (Resist laws on background checks, straw purchasers, etc.)

Step 2: Scare ordinary citizens by pointing out the fact that criminals have lots of guns.

Step 3: Make lots of money selling guns to ordinary citizens.

Step 4: Use some of that money to lobby Congress to loosen gun laws, background checks etc. on gun ownership....and

Step 5: Return to Step 1, and repeat.

2. The irony is that liberals are her "base"

Does she think her public support structure is at the hands of "republicans?" Pathetic.

5. She has a base? No, she'll sink as low as she needs to.

I didn't realize changing your sex caused your inner "asshole" to disappear. Jenner has, is and always will be an asshole and I often wonder why anyone on DU gives two rat turds about what this entitled asshole has to say about anything.

4. I own a Glock and a lady Smith and Wesson that i carry in a really cute purse

..the Glock has a laser so hard to miss a target. I think Caitlyn is worried because now she knows Liberals DO own guns and some are just as crazy as Trumpers about using them. They are basically cowards hiding behind their MAGA hats and this has put the fear of God in them. Cancelling appearances, calling for unity...all this is a 'don't shoot me' cry as they hunker behind a big rock and toss stones.

YEP a lot of libs have guns and we are great aims. We just know what to shoot at and what NOT to shoot at....but then theres the occasional cray cray.

18. The only people who are gonna take the RW crazies guns away will be the Repo man.

Because how much did they put on their credit card or how big was that loan they took out in order to buy these expensive guns, accessories & ammo?

7. So, it gives her "comfort" to believe the very factions that would wish her dead because of her

gender status, are "better aims"? and, conversely that the very people who have defended her these past years, should be subject to her contempt and derision....?

There is something seriously wrong with Caitlyn, IMHO.

We hear enough of that No True Scotsman crap from the religious apologists.

15. Common sense gun safety regulations have been a part of the liberal governing philosophy

for a long time, especially when it comes to semi-automatic assault rifles, machine guns, armor piercing bullets, hand grenades etc.

There are plenty of Scotsmen who put sugar on their porridge, and it doesn't mean they're not true Scotsmen. It's just not part of the general Scotsman philosophy. But if you're accusing me of making a generalization in order to make a point, I plead guilty.

19. Your No True Scotsman is only part of the problem.

There's also equivocation and a dash of composition fallacy, all for the sake of denying what the shooter very obviously was.

If you want to make the case that the DC shooter is an unusual case among liberals, I'd be inclined to agree. But we don't get to disown this guy just because he did something our enemies will use to slander us.

12. Twitter time, Facebook time.

I'm a liberal and I won gun, . I also shoot quite well. I'd love to see how well Katie does out on a range. I'll go up against frog throat anytime.

Wonder how Katies is going to feel when one of her "friends" in the Rube Party beats her nearly to death. Or does she have body gaurds 24/7 protecting her from the rednecks that want to kill her.

14. If people weren't so quick to assume that just because

she's trans and an ex-athlete with a t.v. show, that she's a decent human being, we wouldn't have to either hear from her or look at her latest low-cut dress ever again.

Don't come crying to us when the right-wing throws you under the bus. Which they do frequently with their log cabin idiots.
