My Lazy Gun...
Today I placed my S&W .357 Revolver on the table right next to my front door. I left 6 cartridges beside it, then left it alone and went about my business.
While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor across the street mowed the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped at the stop sign near the front of my house.
After about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was still sitting there, right where I had left it. It hadn't moved itself outside. It certainly hadn't killed anyone, even with the numerous opportunities it had presented to do so.
In fact, it hadn't even loaded itself. Well you can imagine my surprise, with all the hype by the Left and the Media about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people. Either the media is wrong or I'm in possession of the laziest gun in the world.
The United States is 3rd in Murders throughout the World.
But if you take out just 4 cities: Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC, and New Orleans, the United States is 4th from the bottom, in the entire world, for Murders.
These 4 Cities also have the toughest Gun Control Laws in the U.S.
ALL 4 of these cities are controlled by Democrats. It would be absurd to draw any conclusions from this data right?
Well, I'm off to check on my spoons. I hear they're making people fat.
Blog Author's Comments - The Left, a group that prides themselves for being the smartest people in the room, they certainly like to spout "facts" about a subject which most of them are completely unfamiliar.
From groups like “Moms Demand Action” and Michael Bloomberg’s crusade against guns to the anti-gun left–controlled media, the public is subjected to a barrage of misinformation and outright falsehoods regarding firearms.
And so, a primer for you anti-gun liberals.
An “automatic” firearm is one capable of continuous fire (as long as one holds down the trigger). We used to call these “machine guns”… and no, one cannot simply walk into a gun shop and buy one.
A “semi-automatic” is a firearm that fires one bullet each time you pull the trigger (most handguns are semi-automatic). One can walk into a gun shop and buy one of these, provided you meet certain requirements (dependent upon the State in which the shop is located, and the State in which one resides).
A pistol has a removable magazine (not a “clip”) that once filled with ammunition, is placed into the firearm (usually from the bottom). A magazine’s capacity can vary.
A revolver has a “cylinder” that is either taken out once you have discharged all the bullets within the chambers and replaced with another cylinder containing new bullets or is fixed where you remove the empty bullet shells and replace them with live bullets. A cylinder’s capacity can also vary.
I thought the above article was amusing and was meant for the anti-gun left and media.
