Debating the AR-15

The following debate originally took place on the Facebook wall of family…

Zayvier B.: This isn’t meant to spark any sort of mass argument, but only to expand a field of view. You cannot deny the use of the AR-15 as the primary weapon of more than half of our nation’s mass showings. With that being said, I want someone to tell me a use that only can come from an AR-15 that would demand it be kept in the homes of citizenry, and is a use ONLY the AR can fulfill

RaynReturning fire at one of these mass shooters you mention? As you said yourself, “[y]ou cannot deny the use of an AR-15 as the primary weapon in more than half of” these types of attacks.

Zayvier B.: Wrong, an AR isn’t the sole item that could be used to deter or defeat a shooter.

Rayn: I said “returning fire,” not “deter,” nor “defeat,” and I meant it in the most literal sense, imaginable…

Zayvier B.: I understand that, but my point was to state what makes the AR something so important and gives it a quality only it has. Any firearm could be used to return fire at any kind of assailant

RaynThen, my question is this: as an innocent human being (also, never charged with domestic violence, nor any felony) that would be engaging in peaceful activity (meaning that there is no actual victim) if I seek to obtain the firearm of my choice, what gives anyone else, but me, jurisdiction over my actions? Why am I to be restricted, so as not to have the exact weapon to defend myself that the criminal easily has at his disposal? Truly, “what makes the AR something so important” that I can’t use one to defend against one?

When Doublethinking About the American Government’s Bipartisan Efforts to Destroy Liberty, Expect a Heavy Dose of Truth

The following debate originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “Doublethinking About the American Government’s Bipartisan Efforts to Destroy Liberty“…

Rayn: If you think liberty isn’t the enemy of both RepubliConArtists and DemoCrackPots… “you’re gonna have a bad time.”

H.R. 6061 (109th): Secure Fence Act of 2006, passed 80-19 by the Senate, under the Bush administration:

Notable “yea” votes include: Barack Obama (D-IL), Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Chuck Shumer (D-NY), Joe Biden (D-DE), Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Christopher Dodd (D-CT), among others…

“Want to know how this guy was able to authorize the wall with just his signature?
Because these guys voted in favor of building it while in the Senate”

Greg L.: True

Katherine C.: Not the same thing. It’s one thing to reinforce a border and another to build a wall and use it metaphorically to indicate that the US is racist and xenophobic.

RaynMuh Borders: they keep all the freedom inside! 😉

Leftists Are Amused by a “Joke” Meme Involving the American Government’s War Crimes

The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of an acquaintance, after he shared a meme from here

Sam B.:

"Biden: Showed Trump the drone strike controls in your top desk drawer Obama: That's an Etch-a-Sketch Biden: Yup"

“Biden: Showed Trump the drone strike controls in your top desk drawer
Obama: That’s an Etch-a-Sketch
Biden: Yup”

(note that upon sharing this meme to his wall, Sam soon receives 9 “likes” and 7 “hahas” from his Facebook friends)

RaynHa! Good one! Super funny! Nothing like a clever joke involving the American government’s War Crimes!

Obama-Led Drone Strikes Kill Innocents 90% of the Time in Afghanistan, in Just a Single Five-Month Campaign:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/civilian-deaths-drone-strikes_us_561fafe2e4b028dd7ea6c4ff

When combining the officially-acknowledged, yet incomplete, government-reported numbers of casualties from drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Afghanistan, the most modest possible totals show that between 616 – 1,258 civilians were killed, which includes between 186 – 241 children.

Get the Data: Drone Wars:
https://www.thebureauinvestigates.com/category/projects/drones/drones-graphs/

During Obama’s presidency, between 449 – 926 of the above-mentioned civilians casualties occurred (about 72.9% – 73.6% of the totals), which includes between 80 – 112 children (about 43 % – 46.5% of the totals). This is just more bipartisan criminality taking place in the ludicrous, endless “War on Terror.”

Oh, and this doesn’t even include US drone operations occurring in Iraq, Libya and Syria…

Inspired to Promote Voluntaryism After Yet Another Viewing of Charlie Chaplin’s Famous Speech in “The Great Dictator”

The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Katherine C…

Katherine C.: A chilling plea from the past.

Charlie Chaplin’s Incredible Speech:

RaynNo Masters No Rulers!

"As for politics, I'm an Anarchist. I hate goverments and rules and fetters. Can't stand caged animals. People must be free." - Charlie Chaplin

Katherine C.: We take for granted the comforts we have with government. Safety being one of them. I know there are exceptions, but we’ve talked about this before. You never gave me a good solution as to stopping serial killers and the like from attacking people that can’t fight back. Your only solution is private security and god knows how they’d get paid because there’d be no money, so I’m assuming we’d revert back to a barter economy.

Rayn:

Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency ask the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But, conscience ask the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.” - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Prejudice and Elitism of the Left is Showing – Round 2!

The following debate, “The Prejudice and Elitism of the Left is Showing,” which originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Daniel Sv, and concluded days ago, was suddenly reignited, after Trump won the election for US President…

Russian President, Vladimir Putin, and American actor, Steven Seagal

Daniel F.: Maybe now he can move to Russia and raise the average IQ of both countries.

Rayn: Your prejudice and elitism are showing, Daniel F… Talk about “vile filth”…

Daniel F.: I take that comment back – clearly I grossly underestimated the collective stupidity of this country, as this year’s election has clearly shown.

Rayn: But… muh “democracy”!

“Remember: the ones in control are never elected”

“Democracy: your vote actually counts for very little. The vast majority of the people in control are unelected. The two parties share very similar views on most subjects. In the 110th Congress, people voted for the party line 91% of the time. Only 20.9% of the U.S. population voted for Barack Obama in 2012.

“2007-2012: Anti-War Movement”

Daniel F.: You realize that come January 20th, someone with the temperament of a toddler is going to have access to our nuclear arsenal. Just let that sink in.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong..?

Rayn: Next time, vote harder! 😉 Democracy, for the win! 🙂

RaynBoth major candidates were dangerous, pro-war pigs, and yet, Killary had a very well-established history of major war-hawking whenever in positions of State power that few seemed to acknowledge…

I wouldn’t trust either lizard to so much as babysit a pet rock! 😀

Daniel F.: Well thanks to all the imbeciles in this country democracy is probably dead, or going to be in short order.

You will probably find what ends up replacing it even less to your liking

Rayn: Democracy, itself, is a dead, obsolete concept, to me. I do not like it, whatsoever, so I can’t possibly find any replacement “less to my liking.” And, in truth, this country is supposed to be a Republic – though, that has failed, like they always do.

Rayn: DemoRepubliCrats: (n) a group of Americans who vote to centralize their moral bankruptcy, murderous criminality, and insatiable desire for unrestricted control over the lives of others, into the shape of a violent, coercive, non-corporeal, unaccountable military-industrial plutocracy referred to as the “State,” largely in a legal effort to shield all individual members of said cabal from judicial prosecution, by diffusing and ultimately obscuring all personal accountability and private responsibility from the equation, while simultaneously creating a “legal” pretext for severely punitive, “State”-based enforcement of both 100% sponsorship for, and 100% participation in, said criminal racket, through use of extortion, conscription, violence, theft, kidnapping and imprisonment – all to the extreme detriment of the peaceful, non-consenting individuals who either currently live, or were originally born, within the imaginary borders of the “State.”
