In Saturday’s Buffoon, there was a piece about that great American role model Sylvester Stallone wherein he states that he is in favor of new national gun control regulations. The sage states, “Who needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you’re carrying out an assault…You can’t hunt with it…Who’s going to attack your house with a #%&$! army?” The wise one goes on further to state that every one of these people who have done these things in the past 30 years are friggin’ crazy, really crazy…to me our biggest problem in the future is insanity coupled with isolation….
All of this is coming from a two-bit “actor” who started out making super-violent, totally unrealistic films in his abysmal “Rocky” series. Sly’s acting ability is so one-dimensional that he would be best suited playing a pancake. His most famous line comes from the original Rocky movie, “Wudduhyuh tink eyeyam, sumkinduhvah bum-bah? Aye-yuh? You tink eyemuh bum-bah?” Yup, Rockster, eyetink yurah bum-bah.
Just what the Hell is an assault rifle? It’s something that you assault someone with. I know lots of people who own AR-15’s who never have any intention of assaulting anyone with them. Hmmm…so I guess that these particular AR’s are not assault rifles after all. Itsuh pretty simple concept, init?
While I believe that any .223 caliber rifle doesn’t pack enough punch to hunt deer, I know plenty of people who use them for that purpose and use them successfully. They are great for shooting vermin, and a lot of fun at the range. What collection of military weapons would be complete without an AR?
Another thing that really fries me is the rant about mass murderers being “mentally ill”. The mentally ill are wonderful scapegoats, as they are very unlikely to stand up and defend themselves from these scurrilous attacks. Shortly after the Sandy Hook tragedy, a forensic psychiatrist told certain big mouths on “The View” that the monsters who perpetrate these outrages are not mentally ill. This man has made a career studying and interviewing mass murderers. He stated that the vast majority are not “crazy” per Sly’s non-PC characterization, but misfits who have made a “life choice” and who very carefully plan these atrocities.
I heard a mental health advocate state that the “mentally ill” are much more likely to be the victims of violence than the perpetrators.
Sly needs to take a look at his sick-making films and ponder what type of total misfit would get off on relishing his brand of nauseating violent tripe.
I am not a member of the NRA and I do not subscribe to much of its vitriol. For the most part, I lean towards being a slimy liberal, yet I am a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment and a firm believer in private property rights. Not long ago, I got a real charge out of a reporter who asked Mayor Bloomberg that if strict gun control legislation is enacted, would the Honorable Mayor disarm his massive entourage of bodyguards. As the Honorable One stuttered and stammered, the reporter asked him if he would like a drink of his super-sized sugar infused soft drink.
To make a short story long, Sly, eyetink yur-uh sumkinduhvah bum-bah. To quote the warden after he had Cool Hand Luke brutalized, “Wahwehah he-yuh iz failyuh tuh communcait!”
