A Few Words On the Omaha Mall Shooting

So, some not-so-well-adjusted piece of shit gets his knickers in a knot and goes off shooting in an Omaha mall, killing eight people. Says Paul Helmke from The Brady Campaign For A Second American Civil War:

We need to stop selling military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips to civilians.
Never mind the erroneous terminology. Helmke's a willfully ignorant piece of shit, that much is a given, kinda like the sun rising in the east. Here's something I haven't seen anyone pontificate on, at least not in the blogs I read every day -- much less in any mainstream news source.
Suppose Helmke and his evil minions got their wish. Suppose the blatantly unconstitutional "assault weapons ban" was reinstated. This ban would not make all the banned weapons in civilian hands -- or the ammunition for said weapons -- automatically disappear. Which is going to leave the possibility of another shooting just like this one on the table. So what's the next step? Why, confiscation, of course, by government agents with guns! After some sort of amnesty, I am sure, but that means nothing in the big scheme of things. And you and I both know Helmke and his organization wouldn't speak a word opposing such a decree. Which, taking into consideration their previous stances on any and all things liberty-related, makes them willful collaborators as far as I am concerned. Once again, Mike Vanderboegh:
The war would certainly extend to those whose direct and support it-- civilian or not-- as they are primary targets...Bill Clinton extended our own rules of war in the Kosovo intervention to include the news media and other propagandists as legitimate targets. Under these rules, (Paul Helmke) and his anti-gun ilk would all be dead men.
SayUncle might refer to such rhetoric as "scaring the white people," and that might well be true -- but I for one have had it with these people. Were I to ever come face to face with this Helmke cretin, I would love to tell him to sit down and have a nice, tall glass of shut the HELL up.
