Taking the Press Sec’s Advice

The White House Press Secretary, Josh Earnest, requested that this year at Thanksgiving, Americans discuss gun control.

 

The left just loves ruining holidays with politics, don’t they?

But, since this one comes directly from the White House, I think I might comply.  My dad is coming up to visit us for the holiday.  I’m going to hot smoke a duck on the BBQ grill (eat your hearts out Progressives).  And we will have a conversation that goes something like this:

Dad: “How is working in the gun industry.”

J.Kb: “I didn’t know it was possible to enjoy something so much with clothes on.”

Dad: “Great.”

J.Kb: “So how about we discuss gun control like the White House wants?”

Dad: “Ok, you go first.”

J.Kb: “I love it when they talk about gun control.  I can’t wait for Hillary to run with gun control as a central part of her strategy.  I really hope Obama threatens us with a lame duck gun control push.”

Dad: “Why.”

J.Kb: “Lets see… the numbers are on our side.  More Americans believe in gun rights than gun control.  We’ve seen crime spikes in every city that has had Social Justice riots in 2015, despite an overall decrease in nation wide violent crime.”

Dad: “So why do you want them to keep talking about gun control.”

J.Kb: “Democrat idiocy is great for business.  Trust in the government to protect us, especially against terrorism is at a new low.  We have record concealed carry in the US, with people rushing to get permits after every terrorist attack.  Guns are flying off the shelves, and every month we are ahead of previous years for NICS checks.  The more they talk the more we sell.”

Dad: “But what happens if they actually get a ban?”

J.Kb: “The GOP still has a majority in Congress, so that is a hurdle to jump.  But still, there are huge numbers of Law Enforcement who have stated an intention to refuse to uphold new gun bans.  When compliance was voluntary, only about 10% of people complied.”

Dad: “You’re not too afraid.”

J.Kb: “You think cops in Alabama are really going to go door-to-door looking for guns?  No officer, that’s not a gun safe… that’s a refrigerator. ‘Carry on son'”

Dad: “You’re just being cynical.”

J.Kb: “You raised me.”

Dad: “Touche.  Speaking of guns, when can I get something from you at the insider price.”

J.Kb: “Friends and family discounts come out the week before Christmas.”

Dad: “I let you know what I want.  By the way, this duck is delicious.”

  1. Wow, YourRepublicanUncle is full of the stock lies, cooked statistics, and old-hat bogus stories.

    Also they’re still trying to attack Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, as if that isn’t doing the Republicans a favor. (Apparently they finally wised up about McCain.)

  2. We are weird birds. BBQ duck in your house and Lasagna Quattri Formaggio in ours.
    About the only conversation about guns would be “Get your guns off the dining room table!” from mom and “No, you can’t buy the takedown lever action rifle. We have some home stuff to take care of first.” by the wife.

  3. The gun control discussion at my family Thanksgiving is usually along the lines of “We eat in an hour. You guys need to be done shooting by then. And make sure you get all of your brass up out of the yard, too.” After dinner, the discussion tends to turn more towards who’s got a new carry weapon. 🙂

  4. The White House Wants Us All To Talk Gun Control This Thanksgiving

    Personally, I would prefer to discuss the ACTUAL CORE issue of gun violence by addressing with family, friends and neighbors America’s expanding and shameful *National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect*, *Poverty*, that for more than two generations has deprived untold numbers of American kids from experiencing and enjoying a fairly happy American kid childhood with Safe Streets to travel and play on, is primarily responsible for filling our prisons with depressed, angry, frustrated teens and adults.

    Child Abuse and Neglect that is primarily responsible for populating our prisons with depressed, angry, frustrated, undisciplined, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults full of resentment for irresponsibly being introduced to a life of hardships and struggles.

    *Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect* that often leads depressed, sometimes suicidal *(NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers)* children to develop into depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults lacking empathy and compassion for others, though needing to vent their pent up negative emotions, often causing emotional and physical harm to peaceful people…instead of venting their anger, resentment and pain on the immature single moms and/or dads who introduced them to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsibly building a family before acquiring the practical skills, *PATIENCE* and means to successfully raise and nurture a developing young child who matures into a fairly happy responsible teen and adult.

    Who or what is responsible for traumatizing, abusing, neglecting, maltreating children to the point where depressed young kids, we’re talking elementary school children, to believe their lives are not worth living?

    The question all concerned, compassionate Americans should seriously be asking ourselves, our elected, civil, social, community and religious leaders is, “What real, substantial changes in our society’s attitude and laws need to occur to prevent abuse that often causes young kids to mature into depressed, frustrated, angry teens and adults as a result of experiencing the *emotional and/or physical trauma of an abusive childhood?”*
