The Constitution actually still does exist, but it’s always shocking when a judge acknowledges it.
A federal judge Friday overturned California’s three-decade-old ban on assault weapons, ruling that it violates the constitutional right to bear arms.
U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of San Diego ruled that the state’s definition of illegal military-style rifles unlawfully deprives law-abiding Californians of weapons commonly allowed in most other states and by the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Under no level of heightened scrutiny can the law survive,” Benitez said. He issued a permanent injunction against enforcement of the law but stayed it for 30 days to give state Attorney General Rob Bonta time to appeal.
Gov. Gavin Newsom condemned the decision, calling it “a direct threat to public safety and the lives of innocent Californians, period.”
In his 94-page ruling, the judge spoke favorably of modern weapons, said they were overwhelmingly used for legal reasons.
“Like the Swiss Army knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment. Good for both home and battle,” the judge said in his ruling’s introduction.
“They will be extra useful in the coming hardships, when the white man will be compelled by circumstance to rise up and slaughter the niggers and kike vermin who defile our Aryan homeland, as has been predicted by the prophet QAnon,” the judge added.
I’m just joking. He didn’t really add that.
But that is really what these Democrats hear – and if he had said that, the response from the left would be the same. They are already at peak screeching, so they can’t screech any louder.
Remember – this is the AR-15 we’re talking about here. A gun that is responsible for basically no murders, statistically.
The gun is primarily owned by fat people who like to LARP as if they are going to rise up and defend the Constitution. They’re not actually going to do that. It is literally a LARP. They dress up in costumes and everything.
You can say what you want about those people, but they’re obviously harmless.
This whole AR-15 thing is a hobby. Any American who has ever been outside of the densely populated urban centers understands this. Men in America have been totally stripped of their masculinity by feminism and endocrine disruptors, and buying an AR-15 and pretending that some day they will rise up and take back their freedom is a way for them to feel like men.
They’re about as dangerous as a cosplayer with a sword.
Technically, the cosplayer is probably more dangerous, as he is not fat and thus has higher testosterone. But the two are in the same ballpark threat level.
(By the way, I don’t get any love for saying this stuff about these AR-15 people – but it’s just true. For the record, I do 100% support them and their rights and so on, but I’m not going to pretend they are some legitimate revolutionary force – again, only people who have never been outside of a city think that. I’m personally familiar with these people. They are fat.)
If the Democrats were actually worried about safety, they would be going after handguns, particularly those owned by black men between the ages of 12 and 30. But they don’t care about safety, obviously – they’ve nearly tripled the murder rate in some areas by defunding the police and making the police scared to do their job, and they let violent criminals out of jail on purpose.
What they are concerned about is this: romantic military veterans taking those fat gun hobbyists with the power fantasy and getting them to actually become the thing they are pretending they could be.
What is the likelihood of that happening?
Probably not very high. As long as these gun people are fat, Judeo-Christian masturbators, they are neutralized.
But it’s conceivably possible there could be a shift somewhere, at some point, somehow.
So, the reason the Democrats want to take people’s guns is because they are afraid of the thing that the Founding Fathers said was necessary and the reason for the Second Amendment in the first place.
With the First Amendment pretty well de facto abolished by privatization of the public square, Antifa attacks on public demonstrations (where rightists get charged with crimes if they are attacked), and judges allowing endless SLAAP suits, the Second Amendment is now the most important target of the left. Everyone has I’m sure seen the kook the Biden People are trying to install as the head of the ATF.
He probably won’t be confirmed. He’s just being used to shift the narrative. But it shows the narrative they’re looking for.
This California ruling isn’t really a setback, so much as it is a jumping off point for talking points about the need for new federal legislation.
I hope the gun hobbyists hold the line on this issue. It’s hard to even imagine how much worse this country would be if we didn’t have guns.
The Ben Garrison version of the Jefferson meme is hot.
