President Biden Continues to Demonstrate Ignorance and a Failure to Think

 

On Thanksgiving Day, President Biden again pushed his demand that citizens be deprived of the ability to purchase any semiautomatic firearm. But he went further than he had before by declaring that semiautomatic firearms have “no social redeeming value.”

“The idea — the idea we still allow semiautomatic weapons to be purchased is sick,” Biden continued. “It’s just sick. It has no, no social redeeming value. Zero. None. Not a single, solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers.”

NO social redeeming value? Not a single, solitary rationale? Really?

Has Biden heard or read none of the stories of the defensive use of firearms? Does he really think smaller or physically weaker people should be at the mercy of larger, stronger people? Does he really want (generally smaller) women to be targets for rape and robbery by large men? His preferred defensive move of firing randomly two shots from a shotgun (and thereby emptying the shotgun) may not be enough to stop a home invasion by three or four prepared attackers.

If semiautomatic firearms have no value, why do almost all law enforcement officers carry them? All the law enforcement officers I know carry a lot more than five or six rounds in their pistols. Law enforcement officers with the unfortunate experience of firing their weapons to stop an attack usually need more than a couple of shots to ensure that the threat has been neutralized. A civilian under attack is, therefore, also likely to need more than a few shots to stop the attacker.

Revolvers are reliable, but tend to be relatively heavy and bulky, are generally limited to five or six rounds, and take a relatively long time to reload.

President Biden has publicly and conspicuously asserted that democracy is at risk of imminent death. Should democracy (understood broadly to mean some type of representative self-government) die and an authoritarian dictator assume control (in his mind, a Donald Trump), doesn’t he think citizens should have any ability to resist that authoritarian? Who does he think is going to “protect democracy” if the citizens have been disarmed? Should democracy actually become at risk of imminent death, semiautomatic firearms in the hands of citizens are likely to be important in the protection of democracy.

Many of us have known for a long time that Biden is an ignorant, possibly stupid, man. But it astonishes me that he so often goes out of his way to demonstrate even greater ignorance than I could previously imagine, and a complete inability to think through a simple idea.

    And it’s not just semi-automatic sidearms.  Many, many police department have the AR-15 (apparently the devil’s gun, these days) or variants of it.  It would seem these guns do have a purpose other than mass murder.

    I hope that we nominate a candidate like DeSantis who won by almost 20 points, instead of a three time loser like Trump, who did badly in the 2018 elections, lost in 2020, and had his hand-picked candidates lose in the 5 battleground states other than Ron Johnson. Winners like Greg Abbott, Doug Ducey, Chris Sununu, and Glenn Youngkin would also make excellent Republican nominees.

    Please, Gary, could you please just stick to the topic at hand instead of looking for every possible opportunity to squeeze in your opinion about Donald Trump?

    Biden demonstrates yet again that he has no understanding of the 2A. Given his demonstrated degree of mentally diminished state*, it is unreasonable to expect him to learn it now. The fact that he is a fair representation of the Democrat Party only makes it all the worst. 

    * This is nothing new. He’s been dumb as a box of rocks for decades. However, it has to be acknowledged that he has a certain low, animal cunning: a cleverness at grift and deceit that has allowed him to amass a sizable family fortune over the last 50+ years.

    When I see one of these cheery little pep talks about the Republicans winning in 2024 from a person who bears part of the responsibility for the miserable and pathetic mentally deficient old corrupt-o-crat presently occupying the White House and who not only supports Democrat candidates but does so loudly and often, it causes reactions which cannot be fully and adequately described without running afoul of the C of C. This person is also responsible for the defeat of a person who in my opinion was one of the most impressive of all candidates for any office in the mid-terms, Kari Lake, and sent out photographs to illustrate how proud he was to support a person who advocates the murder of babies right up to the moment of birth. In saying all this, perhaps I take the risk of also being also off topic, and for that I apologize. I have just held my piece for quite a long time about this particular member after giving up on ever having him engage in any thing resembling a substantive argument on the issues. I find statements of his like this one quite simply disgusting and appreciate the opportunity to be a part of a forum where one does not get “redacted” for saying so. I know it’s his absolute right to vote for a known corrupt, sleazy, greedy, despicable fool like Joe Biden and to flout his support for a person in the Arizona gubernatorial race who stands for things I personally consider bordering on the criminal–it is also my right to say I find them disgusting, to put it mildly.

    Not to understand the second amendment is one thing (such non-understanding being disturbingly common in the population), but not to be able to see a single benefit to, or a single rationale for, ownership of a semiautomatic firearm is just ridiculous.

    Thank you for this excellent post. May I suggest a few additions to the above statement? I would have it read as follows:

    “Many of us have known for a long time that Biden is an ignorant, possibly stupid, corrupt, sleazy, grasping, greedy, selfish, rotten, dishonest, unscrupulous, unprincipled, villainous, felonious, venal, lawless, crooked, Machiavellian, conniving, despicable, man.”

    That gets just a tad closer to they way I feel about him; a little more time in my Roget’s Thesaurus would, I am quite sure, yield more than a few more!

    Given his out-sized actions in response to the January 6 protests, I’d say that’s an emphatic no. He wants every kind of gun by his side to protect himself from every imagined threat he can think of. And those protesters were not even armed. He doesn’t like it when people argue with him.

    It is very typical of tinpot dictators to disarm the populace while super arming their own police forces.

    Whenever the government tells us to disarm, I think our standard response should be, “You first!” :)

    This pretty much sums it up for me. The man has demonstrated that he (or the people who open his pudding cup) will say anything at all, regardless of its coherence, veracity, or value, if they imagine it somehow furthers their divisive narrative.

    I don’t believe anyone really listens to him. He’s a proxy for the non-Republican vote, and no one with an IQ higher than the current share price of FTX stock thinks he has something to contribute.

    I suppose that’s good, in a way. We can have the debate on the public stage without worrying that he’s going to land a punch and somehow make us look unreasonable or uninformed.

    Of course the irony is that while progressives are ostensibly supportive of strict gun control measures, the reality is that they’re opposed to gun control, or at least at the practical level: Existing gun laws are seldom prosecuted by progressive DAs.

    I think the air has been pretty comprehensively cleared, so I’m going to jump back to the gun control topic for a moment.

    I spend more time than is healthful on Twitter — basically that’s any non-zero amount of time. One thing I’ve noticed in the past few days is that the leftist gun-fetish crowd, those people who are obsessed with guns and who imagine that the world would be a better place if some draconian and unconstitutional law were passed to ban them outright, are out in full force. Biden is just a follower here. 

    The gun remains talismanic to these people. They seem to be utterly disinterested in the nature of crime, in the oddly skewed demographics of violence, and in the absurdity of opposing law enforcement on the one hand and bemoaning criminality on the other.

    I try to respond to calls to disarm citizens by suggesting that (1) it won’t work, and (2) efforts to do so are likely, per actual research, to increase rather then reduce violence. Then I ask if they’re willing to accept a net increase in violence for the satisfaction of depriving some portion of law-abiding citizens of their weaponry.

    I also try to bring up the fact that there’s a cultural component to violence, with black Americans responsible for a wildly disproportionate percentage of all killing. The point isn’t to invite a discussion of race, but rather to suggest that there are non-obvious factors to crime in America, and the simplistic assumption that banning semi-automatic weapons (for example) will address those factors seems nonsensical.

    I’ve also noticed lately an increase in the number of Twitter posts of the “well, actually, crime is worse in red states than in blue states.” I think these all turn out to be sophistic skewing of data, ignoring the fact that most murders and shootings — the kind of crime we’re really talking about — occurs in cities, and those cities are run by Democrats. There are kinds of crime more common in rural communities, and talking about “crime” as a proxy for “gun violence” is misleading. Cities are still where the murdering is going on. (For hunting accidents, suicides, and accidental shootings, the distribution is different.)

    Anti-gun people like to caricature those of us who like our guns as somehow obsessive, but I don’t think there’s any gun fanatic quite as fanatical as the committed gun control extremist.

    Just out of curiosity, ersatz and androgynous Galt, why do you believe that?

    In our favor is the truth. I think that gives us an enormous advantage.

    In their favor is a large and complicit opinion-shaping elite — an elite that is losing favor with people convinced that experts have led us astray, that the news lies to us, and that the institutions, from elementary schools to universities and government at all level, has become corrupted by radicals and progressives.

    Meanwhile, guns are selling faster than they ever have, there are more of them in private hands than ever before, and they aren’t going away.

    So why do you think that the gun-grabbers will win?

    Thank you for this excellent post. May I suggest a few additions to the above statement? I would have it read as follows:

    “Many of us have known for a long time that Biden is an ignorant, possibly stupid, corrupt, sleazy, grasping, greedy, selfish, rotten, dishonest, unscrupulous, unprincipled, villainous, felonious, venal, lawless, crooked, Machiavellian, conniving, despicable, man.”

    That gets just a tad closer to they way I feel about him; a little more time in my Roget’s Thesaurus would, I am quite sure, yield more than a few more!

    I do have a lot of additional descriptors of Biden, but I try to keep my discussion topics limited in scope to maintain focus.
