They don’t think things through much, do they?

One simple regulation, (retired US Air Force Col. Morris ) Davis explained, could be password-protected locks on guns, similar to those used with iPhones. Offering an example, he said the toddler who accidentally killed his mother recently in Walmart would never have been able to use the gun he found in his mother’s purse if it had a lock. He also claimed that firearm thefts could decrease if robbers could not unlock weapons.

Retired US Air Force Col. Morris Davis, is prime example why other fighting forces have the Air Force at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to fighting on the ground. Only an idiot can conceive the idea that when you need a gun (and usually in a hurry), you should have to waste several precious seconds to enter a password under the stress of an adrenalin dump. I am sure the bad guy will give you all the time you need to unlock the gun and shoot him, right?

With murders and accidental deaths by firearms declining, the Opposition never forgets to add suicides to the numbers in order to fatten them and make noise. But what struck me as utterly idiotic is the assumption that somehow password-protected firearms are going to cut down on suicides. If the person already owns the gun, he would also know the password so, what the hell is it good for?

If Gun Control activists were actually worried about people committing suicide, they would have spent tons of the monies they get from Bloomberg and other bored billionaires on trying to fix our mental health care system.  Instead they waste time blaming the oven for the burning buns.

  1. Perhaps by reducing the numbers of young pople participating in gangs, gang-related crimes, drug-related crimes (but I almost repeat myself), and crimes in general we could reduce the number of “young people” – those between 12 and 30 – who are victims of “gun deaths”.

    After we get a handle on those issues I’m going to go after those that can’t wrap their heads around “Don’t go stupid places with stupid people and do stupid things.”

    Yeah, I know I’m blaming the “victim” instead of that eeevilll inert tool. So what?

    stay safe.

  2. Is it just me or does it always tend to be some retired colonel or other higher level officer that they trot out for support of some stupid gun control measure and never a retired Sgt Major or the like?

  3. Also in the not thinking category, is that the car death analogy is likely to disappear shortly. Given the factors for more people to be driving more, means that car deaths will likely be increasing.

  4. The Col. is also the lawyer for the terrorists in Gitmo that resigned because he disagreed about the way they were questioned.
    He’s the go to guy in the press for talking about Gitmo.

    1. Ah. A turncoat in general, who has abandoned his service oaths.

      (Not because he was ordered to defend unlawful combatants, but because he ignored the laws of warfare and his oath to support the Constitution.)
