I posted a column on my personal blog yesterday. While it was about “gun control,” I thought the tone and expletives made it inappropriate for The Zelman Partisans blog, where I’m a guest. I was angry when I wrote it.
But overnight, a comment on it was posted that makes it germane to the mission of TZP.
In the past, I have posted here about gun people controllers’ screeching for vague or redundant “new” laws to violate human/civil rights. I ask these 18 U.S. Code § 241 lawsuit candidates to be specific as to what solutions they want imposed, instead of whining, “We need common since laws.”
Someone got specific.
So, there’s the first solution. Universal healthcare. Make healthy choice the norm rather than being a country that waits until a sickness is unbearable before seeking treatment.
OK, that’s still a bit general, and it doesn’t seem to have worked particularly well in other countries.
There’s something to the shooters being straight white men. Hellooooo, elephant in the room.
Beg pardon? And what does this person suggest doing about those “straight white men”?
So, an actual second solution. Do away with the old guard. People over the age of 55, for the most part, are only looking out for #1.
Genocide. Ethnic cleansing. Eliminating everyone over the age of fifty-five.
Getting rid of everyone over 55yo? That’s roughly 75,000,000 people. Sheesh, Hitler and Stalin were pikers compared to Little Miss Genocide here. But that might make her “universal healthcare” workable; Dr. Zeke Emmanuel thought well of it; when advising on Obamacare, he proposed limiting and cutting off care when people got too old.
Personally, I’m strongly opposed to genocide, hence my affillation with The Zelman Partisans. But if that’s your thing, maybe you should consider other target demographics than “straight white men,” or everyone over 55. Take a look at the UCR data on killer age and race. If you’re into ethnic cleansing, you could start with the 5% of US counties that account for nearly all murders.
Pro Tip: If you want people to give up their guns, don’t tell them you want them dead.
Pro Tip 2: So long as evil like that exists, so will groups like The Zelman Partisans who work to make sure it can’t, that everyone can choose defense.
