Armed Liberal Virtue Signals himself into a Federal Felony

Scott-Dani Pappalardo tried to give us a shovel full of Moral Superiority and ended up breaking Federal Firearm Laws by creating a Short Barrel Rifle without the proper NFA Tax Stamp.

I cued the video to the important part bypassing almost four minutes of Virtue Signaling and self-aggrandizing bullshit:

From the ATF site:

CHAPTER 15. PENALTIES AND SANCTIONS

Section 15.1 NFA.

15.1.1 Criminal. The acts prohibited by the NFA and prosecutable as Federal offenses are listed in 26 U.S.C. 5861(a) through (l). As provided by 26 U.S.C. 5871, any person who commits an offense shall, upon conviction, be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than 10 years or fined. Although the fine specified in the statute is an amount not exceeding $10,000, an amendment to Federal law provides for a fine of not more than $250,000 in the case of an individual or $500,000 in the case of an organization.224

15.1.2 Forfeiture. Any firearm involved in any violation of the NFA is subject to seizure and forfeiture.225

15.1.3 Assessment of NFA tax. ATF may assess tax liabilities under the NFA, including penalties and interest, as provided by the Internal Revenue Code.226

In all according with The Gun Trust Lawyer Blog, “This means you could be looking at a maximum of 15 years in Jail and $510,000 in penalties for a violation.”

And this is why is so important not to let Liberals dictate gun laws: They are too stupid to follow them and they only make a mess criminalizing people who do not need to be criminalized.

Will Scott-Dani Pappalardo be prosecuted to the extent of the Federal Law? I hope so. Is that mean? Nope, his side is wishing us death or at least a vacation in Guantanamo because they consider us domestic Terrorists. 

You committed a gun crime? Be truthful to your convictions and accept wearing Federal Orange Rompers for 10 years.

GFZ fails

This is a list of School shootings after the Gun Free Schools Act was signed into law by President George W.H. Bush

2018, 14 February – Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school shootings – (17 dead)
2017, November 14 – Rancho Tehama Reserve shootings – (6 dead)
2015, 1 October – Umpqua Community College shooting – (10 dead)
2014, October 24- Marysville Pilchuck High School shooting – (5 dead)
2013, June 7 – 2013 Santa Monica shooting – (6 dead)
2012, December 14- Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings – (28 deaths)
2012, 2 April – Oikos University shooting – (7 deaths)

You figure that after 15 events, even the most dense in the Gun Control community have to start thinking that maybe the Gun Free Zones are not working and maybe we should rethink the whole scheme.

Nope. We are now gonna have marches to demand to expand the Hunting Preserve for the Criminally Insane to get more choices for his hunt.

“El hombre es el único animal que tropieza dos veces en la misma piedra.” “Man is the only animal that stumbles twice on the same stone” or in this case fifteen and counting till the next government-sponsored mass killing courtesy of the Gun Free Zones.

Going out on a limb for The Rude Pundit

After some comments on my last post about The Rude Pundit, I decided I would go through his Twitter feed.

Here is a quick summary of what I learned.

He thinks that Police go through constant firearms training.  This is the worst of the gun control appeal to authority facilities because it is so easily proven wrong.

He wants to bring back the famous 1994 AWB, that was wholly ineffective.

This is where his shit goes down hill.

He really has a hard on for having the police take away people’s guns and the cops killing them in the process.  He thinks that gun owners are just a bunch of pussies who talk tough but will hand over their guns to the police.  At the same time he talks tough, he admits he’s not going door to door, to take guns because “the goverment is.”

He Tweeted this:

Not realizing, the government confiscating property that was purchased legally is right up there in the definition of Tyranny.  What he is calling for is tyranny, but we gun owners can’t recognize that.

I’m going to turn away from The Rude Pundit for a moment and turn to the New York Times, which published an OpEd titled “Repeal the Second Amendment.”  It’s it nonsensical, but it does contain this quote:

My guess: Take the guns—or at least the presumptive right to them—away.

So here we have the NYT being a little more long winded, ultimately getting to the idea of mass gun confiscation.

Last year, the Boston Globe had the same idea.

Ultimately, if gun-control advocates really want to stanch the blood, there’s no way around it: They’ll have to persuade more people of the need to confiscate millions of those firearms, as radical as that idea may now seem.  

So here is where I go out on a limb.

I really don’t want to get into a firefight with cops over my guns.  Dying in my bedroom in front of my kids is not what I want to do.  I really want to avoid that at all costs.

If shit were to actually go south, if DC passed some sort of gun confiscation law and it was upheld by SCOTUS and law enforcement was send to go collect the guns, it’s not the cops that I have any interest fighting.

So why own my guns?  Why say I own guns to stop tyranny if I don’t want do get shot to death by a SWAT team over my AR?

Here is my answer.

The Rude Pundit.  The writers of the New York Times and the Boston Globe.  Moms Demand Action.

It is the people who time and time again, from their comfy offices and academic halls said that the cops should take the guns and if that meant killing gun owners so be it.  It is every Liberal elitist who wants gun owners to be raided but doesn’t want to do it himself.

I want to bring the fight to them.  They wanted my my home raided.  They wanted my friends’ and neighbors’ homes raided, while they slept soundly.  Nope.  They get their doors kicked in too.

They sent the cops to kill gun owners.  They have blood on their hands.

The anti-gun intelligentsia are the Wannsee Conference that planned the final solution to the gun control question.  They are every bit complicit in whatever happens.

If the election of Donald Trump was a “human Molotov cocktail” that was thrown at the elites, they have no idea what is in store for them if they manage to get police to go door to door confiscating guns.  It will be real Molotov cocktails.

The cop who is “just following orders” is morally guilty, but I don’t want to shoot him – and risk being shot myself.  If I own guns to fight tyranny, it is to fight those who gave the orders and cheerleaded the passage of the law and defended it on TV, and I know they are unarmed.

The Liberal elites will not be allowed to stay safe in their ivory towers, insulated from the carnage they created.

 

 

Another useless protest

Days after the Parkland shooting, students at Broward County High School had a walkout to protest for gun control.

They were chanting “Justice for Douglas.”

I can understand being scared and upset as as a kid in high school, having witnessed kids in another school getting killed.  But part of being an adult is overcoming emotion and thinking critically about things.

They want “justice for Douglas.”  Okay, what form does that justice take?

CNBC reported that there are some 5 million AR-15’s in civilian hands.

The overwhelming majority of AR-15 owners didn’t shoot up a school, and never will.  The overwhelming majority of gun owners in general won’t either.

So enacting gun control bans that collectively strip rights away from law abiding citizens isn’t justice.  It’s collective punishment.

The Left doesn’t rely on critical thinking, it relies on emotion.

Remember the hysterical nonsense of the Women’s March?  Remember Ashley Judd yelling about being a nasty woman?  This is politics driven by emotion, not rational though.

So it comes to no supersize that the Women’s March is organizing a national student walkout for gun control.

They are going to take to the streets, driven by emotion, with virtually no facts on their side.  They are going to be hailed as heroes by the media.  We will be implored to the “listen to the children.”

This is the same politics we’ve seen since November 2016, just targeting something new.  The mewling of immature people, with no understanding of reality but demanding that “something” be done because they feel it should be.

I feel bad for some of the kids, being used like this by activists.  But some of these kids are about to turn 18 and are going to be eligible to vote soon.  They need to grow up and understand that emotion is not a surrogate for knowledge, just because they FEEL something, doesn’t make it so.

RINO GOP Donor wants AWB or no more cash.

Via McThag:

GOP mega donor and real estate developer Al Hoffman Jr. says he will not write another check to Republicans until that pass an “assault weapons” ban.
The New York Times reports that Hoffman made this announcement via an email that he sent to Jeb Bush and Gov. Rick Scott (R), among others. Hoffman was a major contributor to the George W. Bush presidential campaign. He also donated more than $1 million to a PAC supporting Jeb Bush’s failed presidential campaign bid.

GOP Mega Donor: No More Money Without ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban.

He wasted 1 million on Jeb Bush…explains things.

And why would he send an email to Bush and Scott? Bush is dead as political force in the state of Florida and Scott is terming out this year. Is he thinking the Gov and the Legislature will go against Fl Gun Owners? Holy shit! We are already pissed off with not getting OC and Campus Carry because Senator Flores has humping her Anti Gun Democrat colleague.  “Sure Thing”  Senator Diaz De La Portilla failed to get re-elected even with Bloomberg’s money and to a newbie Democrat after crapping on gun owners. The GOP trying to even bring an AWB to the floor would assure Florida turning blue in November.

15 months after the election of Donald Trump and some people cannot the tea leaves.

Dunce of the Year: Sable Marie Mongold.

Brother Chuck B. posted this articlementioning the genius here:

The latest NRA Annual Meetings have been populated with more than 70,000 members and no idea how many carrying concealed. I have posted how the local crime drops like an anvil in the area when the NRA members are in town because the bad guys know not to fuck with a bunch of armed people.   I can imagine Sable and group of idiots friends of hers actually popping a couple of caps over at the convention center and getting and unholy wave of lead back.

And she would be making the case for the elimination of Gun Free Zones.

Bless her little heart.
