New Local Anti-Gun Groups

Reasoned Discourse breaks out in just about every corner of anti-gun activism. The same is true for local groups that are popping up in Southeast Pennsylvania.

The first example, found via PAFOA, is Bucks County Against Gun Violence. What’s item one of tonight’s anti-gun agenda?

  • Facebook – changes that have been made to safeguard the facebook page

Yes, shut down dissent! Based on what I see, they appear to report all pro-gun comments as spam on Facebook. This group is so extreme that they support an idea that would ban gun owners from purchasing and transporting firearms across city lines. Yes, city lines.

Then there’s Bucks Safe which is run by a public official, and his meeting announcement informs us that he’ll only allow you entrance if you agree to his mission statement. Since he’s holding his meeting on private property, he can have them turn away anyone he deems unsuitable or with opinions that don’t match his sufficiently. This is the same Pennsylvania lawmaker who called continued ownership of semi-automatic rifles a dangerous loophole that he plans to close by declaring possession illegal.

These folks don’t want a serious discussion about what measures might actually reduce gun violence. They just want to make the laws complicated enough that gun owners who think they have some kind of “right” to own firearms are put in jail or disarmed. They don’t want to hear debate, nor will they tolerate the presence of gun owners who might have different ideas in their midst.

    Commented on the Bucks Safe FB post. I’m trying to reach out and touch these people when/where I can on social media, if only so they can’t make it look like nobody in the world has a dissenting word to say.

    • Bitter says:

      It is interesting that Bucks Safe is allowing pro-rights comments for the moment. I’m not sure how long it will last since the lawmaker behind the group has tried to scrub some of his posts on confiscation. (I took screenshots.) The scrubbing took place after he was challenged by pro-gun folks.

      • Bucks County: “Because this page is in the public domain we have received posts from members of the NRA who are trying to make their case for gun ownership regardless of how many times we state that we do not wish to infringe on their second amendment right. There is simply no reasoning with them as they will attack your character and your loyalty to your country. Therefore we will no longer engage in ANY dialogue with them! We will post ONLY meeting information and notices of petitions to our elected officials. Our philosophy and theirs are at polar opposite.”

        It is the New Civility.

        They get what they want, and we get to register our addresses with the authorities and pull a number for our SWAT raid if we don’t show up at the mandatory buyback which is definitely not confiscation.

          As a PA resident, I dont give a hoot what they have to say about the 2nd amendment. Article 1, Section 21 is much more precise and damning on their part.

          “we do not wish to infringe on their second amendment rights” as they support legislation that would do exactly that. Do these people truly not understand that enacting laws that would place hurdles and obstacles to own a gun is infringement? Not to mention the outright ban on certain weapons many of them support. These are the same people who believe the requirment to show i.d. to vote is an egregious violation of rights. Right about one thing, our philosophy and theirs IS at polar opposites.

    This is why I’m glad we have preemption. Who even notices when you cross the imaginary line from one borough into another? There’s a tiny sign on the side of the road and that’s it. It’s not like we live in walled off cities and you must pass through a great gate to enter.

    • Rob Crawford says:

      Often you don’t even get that. There’s a gas station/garage near where I live that has a men’s room inside city limits, while the rest is outside.

  4. dustydog says:

    Some properties cross city and county lines. I have an acquaintance who fights an ongoing battle because two different cities demand property taxes on his house. Can you imagine being allowed to have a gun in the living room of your house, but not in the back bedroom?

    But I’m willing to compromise. If the liberals document just 100 cases where a criminal has been prosecuted for crossing any jurisdictional boundary AND been forced to serve additional time (i.e. not had the charges dropped, or served the time concurrently), then I’ll concede the issue.

    As long as someone can commit murder, serve 10 years, get out and rape a girl, be released on bond, and then murder somebody while out on bond, we don’t need any more gun laws.

    I’ve shown Bucks Safe some love lately. I’ve had a post or two magically disappear.

  8. Andy B. says:

    Whether it’s that page or this page, the top priority message to place in the public domain is that we will not vote for any legislator of any affiliation who supports the anti-gunners agenda — including enhanced background checks, for anybody.

    Don’t lose sight that, as satisfying as it is to Really Tell Them, or call them the traitors that they are, blah-blah-blah, it is what legislators do that will decide all issues; and what will decide legislators are their and their party’s prospects for future employment. Nothing else. Focus.
