MUST SEE: Steven Crowder exposes what people pushing for “common sense” gun control really think

StaffRebel Columnist

When it comes to gun control, Liberals have an agenda. And it's not exactly “common sense” as they let on.

In his latest video, Crowder exposes exactly how uninformed certain people are when it comes to firearms.

Liberals who know very little about guns can't tell the difference between an automatic and a semi-automatic weapon. Worst of all, these people can vote.

Watch the whole thing and be amazed.

Anybody else pick up on the obvious stupidity of the term “fully semi-automatic”?… Its either “semi-automatic” or “fully automatic” as in military weapons… Military and police grade weapons that are fully automatic have not been available to civilians, except to “grandfathered” licensed collectors, for decades… Military weapons may be fired in a semi-automatic mode or full bore “automatic” mode so popular in the movies… Semi-automatic means pulling the trigger as fast as you can to let off a round, whether in rifles or shotguns on the skeet range… Anytime you hear the term “fully semi-automatic” being used you are dealing with somebody who DOESN’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT!…

@leviticus 2013……point taken

@leviticus 2013 ……I was being sarcastic….but I have held off buying one because I have been anticipating a ban and en mass confiscation. I would love to get an IWI TAVOR with a trigger upgrade and designated markman’s barrel and maybe a low magnification long eye relief optic …but I am not going to invest that many sheckles (for as much as I would love to piss off the boycott Israel crowd) on something that would become contraband after the “common sense” crowd get to exercise their willfull ignorance.

That being said I still think that (in the spirit of this Rick Mercer style skit) they should ban any “assault” weapon that has a battery because of the disturbing assault and battery stats………..:-)

Well Dieter I could not agree more.

Texas is reasonable concerning firearms, save for gun-free zones, which is just another way of advertising that you can come here and kill lots.

And I know that, right now, I have more security on my waist than any Canadian could ever hope for.

Nnaumbua Farrell Gun politics in Canada is largely about registration. Handgun registration became law in 1934, and automatic firearms were added in 1951. In 1969, laws classified firearms as “non-restricted”, “restricted” and “prohibited”. Since 1977, individuals who wish to acquire firearms legally are required to pass a criminal background check. From the 1990s up until September 1, 2015, there were two kinds of individual licences for firearms owners: possession-only and possession-and-acquisition. On September 2, 2015, all possession-only licences were automatically converted to possession-and-acquisition. According to licences, firearms are classified into prohibited, restricted and non-restricted categories, as defined by Part III of Criminal Code (R.S., 1985, c. C-46)37 Note: The word “prohibited” is a classification and does not indicate that such firearms are “prohibited” as per the normal use of the word. So automatic weapons with the right licence can be bought and used at ranges.

Now I ask you commies? Are Canadians less civilized than the Ethiopians? Can’t we responsibly use fully automatic firearms (like we used to prior to 1978) also?
commented 2016-08-19 00:04:03 -0400
I’ll just remind people that it was possible to buy fully automatic firearms in Canada until 1978. And why shouldn’t law abiding private citizens be allowed to own fully automatic firearms?

Check out these Ethiopian sailors. Regular Joes who run into pirates.

See commies? No PTSD. No lawsuits. No Hollywood movies. No ransoms to support more piracy. No loss of millions of dollars in goods. Just a bunch of smiling guys who had the chance to interrupt the humdrum of ship life with a bit of harmless target practice. They can go home to their loving families a enjoy a nice cold Ethiopian lager. Average Joe good guys 1. Rapacious pirates 0. I mean honestly leftists who can be against this? And did I see an RPG on board?! LOL God bless the Ethiopians!

Canadians – generally speaking – are spoiled, arrogant, entitled and smug.

Their opinion of firearms and knowledge of firearms – as a whole – is quite similar to what you saw on Crowder’s video.

I shake my head.

Glenn… If you don’t want one then don’t own one..
Gun owning law abiding citizens present absolutely no threat to other law abiding citizens… gun free zones are targets for criminals and other sub humans who wish to do harm on innocent people Because they know there is nobody there to stop them and the authorities usually only arrive after the fact to take bodies away and to take statements from survivors.
I don’t think there was ever a time in history where murderers and thieves bothered to take the time to obtain a gun permit before going on their murderous rampages.. unarmed citizens are targets and resources for the criminal element who would do them wrong. The statistics are out there for every country who practices gun control… Either the crime rate goes straight up and through the roof because only the criminals have guns or the country evolves into a armed dictatorship who through violence and aggression subvert the people… the lessons of gun control should be represented by cold hard facts that speak for themselves in a positive light and not based on knee-jerk reactions or crying emotions that have no place in objective and critical thinking.
If gun control worked then police would not ever need to be armed.. Taking guns away from law-abiding citizens does not take guns away from criminals or do anything to help us it only leaves us defenseless to protect ourselves from a threatening element.
Switzerland has an automatic military style tactical rifle Tucked away with ammunition in almost each and every household… Nobody bothers to mention that it has one of the lowest violent crime rates in the world.. And they as law abiding gun owners don’t run around shooting each other up.
Whoever reads this post please make a comment one way or the other if you agree or disagree with the statements I’ve made..

That was HILARIOUS…. Sad but truly funny. Love the you’re a gun owner? yeah Then carry on we don’t want to talk to you… LOL… Love the sarcasm and rudeness, in their FACES, and the one womans response… I feel kinda guilty now… ROTFLMAO…. When you can’t win them over thru their ignorance then SHAME them into capitulation.

We elected a Prime Minister because he’s ‘cute’ and offered to legalize getting stoned. And we think the common voter knows anything about the differences in weapons. Next time ask them what the difference between a Glock and a Bayonet is, and the answers will probably surprise you even more.

Gun confiscation up, murder rate rocketing

Say hello to my friend … Venezuela. It’s happened before in other countries – politicians murdering their citizens – what else is new.
commented 2016-08-18 14:41:47 -0400
Don’t care what any of you say…nobody should own a full semi-auto OR a semi-full auto……….:-)

Who would want an assault rifle anyway …I heard they need a battery……….:-)

If you can’t do “the mad minute” with grand dad’s Lee Enfield you probably couldn’t hit the broad side of a cathedral from inside anyway….:-)

Common sense doesn’t exist, it’s a misnomer. What does exist, sometimes, is experience.

To use just one example, no one is born knowing that you shouldn’t touch a hot stove burner. Many children have proven this over the years by burning themselves on a stove burner. If we were all born born with the knowledge that stove burners are hot, no one would ever burn themselves and on a burner no one would even have to be told to watch out for burners.

Instead of common sense, what we actually have it experience. We get that two basic ways: someone with more experience than we have warns us that something is harmful OR we learn through our own experience. To use the burner example again, your mother warns you not to touch the burner because it will hurt you OR you actually touch the burner and find out that it hurts.

No one is born knowing even the basics about guns. We only know what we’ve learned through our own experience or the experience of others. If no one ever educates us about guns, we know nothing about guns. Clearly, most of the people in the video know nothing about guns, although the video has clearly been edited to cherry-pick the ignorant ones. (I am more than satisfied that lots of people do know a lot about guns from conversations I’ve had.)

By the same token, a whole lot of people have no knowledge about gun control. They don’t understand how gun ownership is actually limited, what requirements gun owners face, or what loopholes actually exist.

Expecting people who know nothing about guns and nothing about how they are regulated to understand which proposed regulations are sensible and which are not is as ridiculous as most of what went on in the video. A lot of education about guns and gun control needs to happen before voters are qualified to vote on the matter.

I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll give it a go again. I compared Manitoba (where I live) murder rates to our two bordering neighbours to the south. Apples to apples, if you will. MB has 4.2 murders /100,000 while North Dakota has 2.7 and Minnesota has 1.6. Hmm… North Dakota has 40,000 concealed carry permits while Minnesota has 600,000. Hmm…..

Yes, Bill, and our nation is full of self-important chimps.

Crowder proves common sense on gun control is very uncommon.

Asking anyone who is personally unfamiliar with a highly technical subject to comment on regulating it is like expecting a chimp to do effective brain surgery.

Not gonna happen.
