About the Episode
The Houston zoo has lifted the ban on guns on the premises. 50 people from our clueless nemesis group, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense, gathered to protest these new rules, calling the zoo an inappropriate place for weapons. Guns cannot be banned on any publicly owned property, and the Houston zoo rests on such property. I think it’s safe to call this group of moms “sore losers.”
The Donald has made some outrageous comments as of late, but he has proposed some interesting policy initiatives concerning gun laws, and we’d like to give him some recognition for actually coming out with a detailed position paper. Trump is apparently for a national right-to-carry law, and he called magazine bans a total failure. Trump also argued that CHL’s should be valid in all 50 states, and that while he has supported assault weapons bans in the past, he does not support the transparent weapons grabs of the Obama Administration. He acknowledged the mental health issue as it is related to guns as well.
A federal appeals panel ruled earlier this week that the Washington, D.C. gun control bill was in fact unconstitutional. One of the judges in the majority was an Obama appointee, which of course the national media overlooked. One Washington Post writer even covered the fact that a Bush appointee was in the minority opinion, meaning they did not want to strike down the law. People in our nation’s capital have their gun rights (semi)restored, and we have even more proof that even President Obama’s liberal friends think his gun policies and gun grabbing are wrong.
Michael Bloomberg and his horde of liberal freedom haters have begun producing reports that gun control is the solution to suicide. These reports claim that gun availability and a state’s gun laws directly affect the suicide rate. Real numbers debunk these bogus theories pretty quickly, however: from 1981 through 2013, the firearm suicide rate decreased, while firearms have been selling at an ever-increasing rate. It seems that more guns means less suicide, and that Bloomberg is more interested in controlling freedoms than providing care for those that would take their own life.
