Gun Laws 101.

Class is now in session!

Here is my third public service installment from MrEricksonRules’ University, highlighting my course, “Gun Laws 101.”

Okay…, well, let’s get the class rolling.

Are you ready?

Here we go.

The first thing we have to recognize is that CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

Again…, CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

So, for our democrat friends, especially Illegitimate Joe, Cackling Kamala, Crazy Nancy Pelosi, and Upchuck Schumer…, here is the breaking news:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

Did you get that, Joe, Kamala, Nancy, Chuck, along with the rest of your clueless democrat friends?

And truthfully, there are some clueless, establishment republicans who need reminding as well.

So, just in case you missed it:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS! 

The only people any gun laws you pass will have any effect on are the law-abiding gun owners who are not the problem in the first place.

Again:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS! 

Okay, so, back to addressing my students.

So, whenever we hear these disingenuous politicians pontificating on the new gun laws they are proposing, just be aware that it is a bunch of hot air that will do absolutely nothing, regarding gun violence in our country.

NOTHING.

CRIMINALS DO NOT BUY THEIR GUNS AT DICK’S SPORTING GOODS, BASS PRO SHOPS, OR CABELAS.

CRIMINALS USE STOLEN GUNS OR GUNS THEY GET ILLEGALLY OFF THE BLACK MARKET.

So, the politicians can make legally buying a firearm as difficult as they want, but these added requirements only make it harder for law-abiding citizens to purchase a gun.

THESE ADDED ROAD BLOCKS TO BUYING A GUN HAVE NO EFFECT ON CRIMINALS OBTAINING A WEAPON.

NONE.

The ironic part of this whole issue is that we already have plenty of gun laws on the books to deter gun violence.

THE REAL PROBLEM IS THE GOVERNMENT AND THE COURTS DON’T PROPERLY ENFORCE THE LAW!

OVER 75% OF PEOPLE WHO COMMIT A CRIME WITH A GUN ARE REPEAT OFFENDERS!

PEOPLE WHO CHOOSE TO COMMIT A CRIME WITH A GUN NEED TO BE TAKEN OUT OF CIRCULATION AND PUT AWAY FOR A LONG TIME.

WE HAVE TO SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE THAT IF YOU USE A GUN ILLEGALLY, YOU WILL NOT GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO AGAIN.

It is not hard to figure out, that if we do this, within a few years, the rate of crime involving a weapon will go way down.

WAY DOWN.

Gun laws are there to protect law-abiding citizens.

IF THE COURT SYSTEM CHOOSES TO TREAT GUN CRIME LIGHTLY, THEY DO SO AT THE EXPENSE OF LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS, AND SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR CRIMES AGANST SOCIETY AS WELL.  

So, do we really need any new gun laws?

No.

IF THE POLITICIANS REALLY WANT TO REDUCE GUN VIOLENCE, ALL THEY NEED TO DO IS DEMAND THAT OUR CURRENT LAWS ARE ENFORCED, AND THAT USING A GUN ILLEGALLY WILL BE PUNISHED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW.

The sad part is they already know this, but they knowingly choose to put the “rights” of criminals ahead of the rights of the victims and law-abiding citizens, like you and me.

They make sure they’re protected though.

It’s the ultimate challenge a free society has to face.

The laws that allow us to enjoy freedom are the same laws that allow the haters of America’s freedoms to attack our freedom.  

Please be on the lookout for my next course, made available to everyone free of charge, from MrEricksonRules’ University.

We have now officially entered “The Twilight Zone!”

Now that I’m thinking about it, Rod Serling may have thought this premise would have been too unbelievable, even for “The Twilight Zone!”

What exactly am I talking about here?

Acording to Lee Brown of The New York Post, “St. Louis lawyers who confronted protesters with guns are under investigation.”

adastl 12

“The St. Louis lawyers who pulled weapons on protesters marching past their home are being investigated for possible criminal charges, the city’s lead prosecutor has revealed.”

adastl 2

Excuse me, Mr. Lee Brown, but your reporting here is a little deceiving.

The St. Louis lawyers, a married couple, in question here, most definitely did “pull weapons” on some people…, but these people were not protesters “marching past their home.”

You see, the lawyers’ home is surrounded by a stone wall, and you can only enter their property by first passing through a heavy iron gate.

In this case, “the protesters” elected to break down the iron gate, march up their driveway to their house, and proceed to threaten the couple.

adastl 1

The “protesters,” who had by now graduated to trespassers and vandals, and who were also brandishing firearms, threatened to kill them, kill their dogs, and burn down their house.

adastl 3

This is quite a different scenario as opposed to Mr. Brown’s description.

“Mark and Patricia McCloskey — who went viral after brandishing an AR-15-style rifle and a silver-colored handgun, respectively — were the only ones to lodge a police report over Sunday’s confrontation, insisting they were “victims” of threatening trespassers who entered a gated community, the St. Louis American noted.”

adastl 4

And based on all of the pictures and video and witnesses of the incident, along with all of the news reports showing what “protesters” had done and proved they were capable of doing, I don’t think there is any question that Mr. and Mrs. McCloskey had every right to fear for their lives.

“But the husband-and-wife lawyers are being probed by police and prosecutors for possible threats against the crowd, authorities announced Monday.”

OK…, here’s where the episode of “The Twilight Zone” begins.

adastl 10

‘“I am alarmed at the events that occurred over the weekend, where peaceful protestors were met by guns,’ St. Louis Prosecutor Kimberly Gardner said.”

adastl 9

Again…, Excuse me, Kimberly Gardner, but your description of the “events” are quite misleading.

The St. Louis lawyers, a married couple, in question here, most definitely did “pull weapons” on some people…, but these people were not “peaceful protesters,” as you claim.

You see, the lawyers’ home is surrounded by a stone wall, and you can only enter their property by first passing through a heavy iron gate.

In this case, “the peaceful protesters” elected to break down the iron gate, march up their driveway to their house, and proceed to threaten the couple.

The “peaceful protesters,” who had by now graduated to trespassers and vandals, and who were also brandishing firearms, then threatened to kill the couple, kill their dogs, and burn down their house.

This, again, is quite a different scenario as opposed to Ms. Gardner’s description.

‘“We must protect the right to peacefully protest, and any attempt to chill it through intimidation or threat of deadly force will not be tolerated,’ she insisted, saying her office was ‘currently working with the public and police to investigate these events.’”

adastl 13

‘“Make no mistake: we will not tolerate the use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights, and will use the full power of Missouri law to hold people accountable,’ Gardner warned.”

Kimberly Gardner, who is a George Soros surrogate by the way, is “alarmed” at how the “protesters” were treated!  

adastl 8

adastl 15

And the “protesters” rights must be protected at all costs!

And those evil people protecting themselves and their pets, and their home, on their own property, will be held accountable for not allowing themselves to be the brunt of these “protesters” expression of violence.

“There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call … The Twilight Zone.” – Rod Serling

Like I said in the beginning, this whole scenario might be just too unbelievable for even “The Twilight Zone!”

“Mark McCloskey has insisted in an interview that they only grabbed the weapons after being ‘threatened with our lives,’ comparing it to ‘storming the Bastille.’”

adastl 5

“In their police report, the couple also claimed they only grabbed the weapons after they ‘observed multiple subjects who were armed,’ the St. Louis American said.”

“Missouri law states that a citizen is committing unlawful use of a weapon if they ‘exhibit, in the presence of one or more persons, any weapon readily capable of lethal use in an angry or threatening manner,’ the paper noted. It would likely be a Class D felony punishable by up to four years in prison and a fine not to exceed $5,000.”

That applies to the “protesters” as well, right?

Don’t hold your breath waiting for any of the “peaceful protesters” to be charged, however.

“There is also a, so-called, ‘Castle Doctrine’ that allows people to use deadly force to attack an intruder on their property, the paper stressed.”

Bingo!

Well, there you go!

“The couple’s attorney, Albert S. Watkins, told the paper that the pair ‘acted lawfully on their property.’”

‘“Their actions were borne solely of fear and apprehension, the genesis of which was not race-related. In fact, the agitators responsible for the trepidation were white,’ Watkins stressed in a statement.”

‘“The peaceful protesters were not the subject of scorn or disdain by the McCloskeys,’ Watkins said. ‘To the contrary, they were expecting and supportive of the message of the protesters.’”

“The scandal also led to a Democrat running for a state Senate seat to refuse a donation from the McCloskeys, instead giving it to the gun safety campaign group Moms Demand Action, the paper said.”

What else would we come to expect from democrat politicians these days?

adastl 14

“The protesters were en route to St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home to demand her resignation after she released names and addresses of residents who joined in anti-cop protests.”

In my estimation, these “protesters” are actually pretty lucky they stormed up the driveway they did.

There are many driveways I know of where the “protesters” may have been treated with less “consideration,” let’s say.
