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?

Gun Control is Tyrannical

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Lysander Spooner,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the law abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless.” – Lysander Spooner

My Commentary: Keep siding with Accuser, lemmings! Your refusal to think for yourselves, along with your natural fear of freedom, and desire to control the innocent, is what makes #democide possible!

The dangerous Utopian myth known as government has been responsible for over ONE HUNDRED MILLION murders of “its own” in the last century (and, that’s just the most modest estimate, available)! But, by all means, continue to weaponize and militarize the State, while clamoring for your neighbor to be disarmed – in the name of fighting “crime” (wink, wink)!

“The People” Simply Cannot Delegate to the Government Rights Which They Do Not Have

I originally posted the following video and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Government is Magic:

My Commentary: If government derives its power from “the people,” then they can only do those things which “the people” have the right to do… “The people” cannot delegate to the government rights which they do not have. This is bullet-proof logic, and yet, for the Statist, it simply does not compute, because they cannot accept the cold, hard truth that NO ONE HAS A RIGHT TO STEAL, OR INITIATE VIOLENCE against others…

“Understand then all of you, especially the young, that to want to impose an imaginary state of government on others by violence is not only a vulgar superstition, but even a criminal work. Understand that this work, far from assuring the well-being of humanity is only a lie, a more or less unconscious hypocrisy, camouflaging the lowest passions we possess.”
– Leo Tolstoy, “The Law of Love and the Law of Violence” (1908)

Imagine No Countries and No Sociopathic, Narcissistic Pretenders “Ruling” Over Society

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared an acquaintance, and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"Image there are no countries. No sociopathic narcissists demanding that we kowtow to them, do what they tell us, and thank them for the privilege of lying helpless while they do what no one has a just right to do - at our expense. Imagine that these preposterous pretenders have been laughed off the stage. Imagine that we have finally awakened to an understanding of our natural rights and the need to insist that they be respected by everyone. Imagine. It's easy if you try. We would finally have emerged from our species' prolonged childhood and become mature human beings at last, no longer crying out for a stern and violent Big Daddy or Big Mommy to save us from the bogeyman they tell us are out there. Imagine. Sure, you may call me a dreamer, but I'm not the only one." - Robert Higgs

Discussing the Self-Sacrifice of Korryn Gaines, and Her Exposure of the Naked Aggression of the State Against Peaceful Human Existence

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “Through Her Sacrifice, Korryn Gaines Exposed the Naked Aggression of the State Against Peaceful Human Existence“…

Police murder victim, Korryn Gaines

Police murder victim, Korryn Gaines

RaynKorryn Gaines: 5 Extremely Important Facts You Need to Know:
http://thefreethoughtproject.com/korryn-gaines-5-important-facts/

Failure to comply with arbitrary, pre-crime-based edicts of pathocratic control-freaks, refusal to pay extortion fees for permission to exercise natural rights as though they were mere privileges, and lethal resistance to abduction and false imprisonment by State mercenaries.

Through her sacrifice, Gaines exposed the naked aggression of the State against peaceful human existence, and highlighted the role government plays as Accuser of the innocent, in that absence of a requisite victim.

Gaines courageously stood up to the soul-sucking State meat-grinder, even though she knew she would likely be killed by it. And, as usual, the government scrambles for excuses to justify its latest cold-blooded murder, and attempts to tarnish the name of their victim, and the merits of her actions…

Jonas A.: Yep! Stood her ground, fought and died for freedom!
