Efficient Gun Control That Actually Makes Sense

by Steve MacDonald

Efficient Gun Control that makes sense: (Note–on 1-20-14 I am editing some incorrect details copied from the original quote and adding a few of my own–Steve)

In 1863 (April 15) 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.

In (July 2) 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States, who later died from the wound.

In (Nov 22) 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.

In (Sept 5 -Fromme) (Sept 22–Moore) 1975 (two different)  left wing radicals fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States.

In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the United States.

In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.

In 1986 Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.

In 1990 James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.

In 1991 George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria.

In 1995 James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.

In 1999 Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service.

In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.

In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.

In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.

In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.

In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.

In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.

In 2013 2012 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school.


One could go on, but you get the point, even if the media does not. Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.

No NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservatives are involved.

SOLUTION: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.

Best idea I’ve heard to date.

(Although this one was pretty good.)

Update- corrected date for shooter Adam Lanza

    1865, not 1863.
    Guiteau was crazy, but considered himself a Republican.
    1981, not 1983.
    The VA Tech shooter was not a US citizen, so could not have been a registered Democrat.
    Loughner was a registered Independent.
    Adam Lanza was not a registered Democrat.
    (And I’m unaware of any evidence that most of the other mass murderers were Democrats.)

      I think you can join a political party without being a citizen and some states and/or localities do permit non-citizens to vote in local/state elections. Loughner may have been a registered Independent but I think writings he left behind put him on the left wing crazy side of things so its no big deal to consider him a Democrat.

    I would be against outlawing guns for Democrats. I would NOT be against outlawing democrats.

    You are not doing your argument any favors by not doing basic research before posting. Getting dates right or the citizen status of Seung – Hui Cho are obvious examples. Not that non-citizen status seems to stop people from voting Democrat!

    • JohnnyL53

      The citizenship status of Seung – Hui Cho may not be an issue. Many localities and maybe even states will permit non-citizens to vote in local/state elections as they are residents.

    1988 Democrat and anti-gun crusader Carl Rowan, columnist for the Washington Post, shoots at teenager skinny dipping in his swimming pool with illegal handgun.

    September 16, 2013, lone gunman Aaron Alexis, delusional regisered Democrat, fatally shot twelve people and injured three others at the Washington Navy Yard.

    February 2013 Christopher Jordan Dorner, registered Democrat goes on killing spree including terrorizing an elderly couple after issuing a manifesto praising Hillary Clinton. Killers all over the world know Killary has their backs…

      For example, on July 18, 1984 James Oliver Huberty, who told his wife he hated “children, Mexicans and the United States” opened fire inside the McDonald’s Restaurant in San Ysidro, CA using a Browning P-35 Hi-Power 9mm pistol, Winchester 1200 pump-action 12-gauge shotgun, and an Israeli Military Industries 9mm Carbine (Uzi) – all legally acquired. He killed 21 and injured 19 before he was shot dead by police.

      On Aug. 10, 1999 White supremacist Buford O. Furrow, Jr., fired 70 rounds with an Uzi-type submachine-gun inside the lobby of the Jewish Community Center in Granada Hills, CA wounding three children, a teenage counselor and an office worker. He then carjacked a woman’s Toyota at gunpoint, dumped it behind a motel and murdered US Postal Worker Joseph Santos with a Glock 9mm handgun.

      On July 27, 2008 Former U.S. Army private, Jim David Atkinsson, who hated Democrats, liberals, African Americans and homosexuals, using a Remington Model 48 12-gauge shotgun, murdered two people and injured seven others inside the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville, TN.

      The day after Obama’s inauguration, white supremacist Keith Luke went on a killing spree in Brockton, Massachusetts. His goal was to kill as many Jews, blacks and Hispanics as possible. When questioned by investigators, the deranged gunman who had stockpiled hundreds of rounds of ammunition, proclaimed that he was fighting the extinction of the white race.

      A little over a month later, Donnie Baker, a former Republican campaign volunteer shot seven Chilean immigrants in Florida. Those who knew him said he was obsessed with the fear that illegal immigrants were taking over the country.

      In April of 2009, Richard Popalowski, a white supremacist in Pittsburgh, shot and killed three police officers following a domestic disturbance call. He apparently thought that Obama was part of a government conspiracy to seize all guns, and he feared the government would take his guns away.

      Later the same month, a Fort Walton Beach Florida man who thought the Obama administration was conspiring against him, shot and murdered two sheriff’s deputies.

      On May 31, 2009 Dr. George Tiller was murdered in his own church by a right-wing “pro- life” gun man who decided to express his belief in the sanctity of human life by executing a medical doctor.

      Eleven days later a right-wing white supremacist and Holocaust denier walked into the National Holocaust Museum and killed an African-American security guard. Two weeks later, three Neo-Nazis were arrested for bombing a diversity office in Scottsdale, Arizona.

      On April 20, 2010 a member of the Sovereign Citizen movement was arrested after a failed attempt to take over a Tennessee county courthouse.

      Exactly one month later, in West Memphis Arkansas, Sovereign citizens Jerry and Joe Kane murdered two police officers before they themselves were shot and killed in the ensuing shoot out with police.

      On July 18, 2010 Byron Williams, an angry unemployed man, was arrested by police after they discovered a car full of weapons and ammunition that he had planned to use to kill progressives. He was on his way to the non-profit Tides Foundation Center, a favorite target of vitriol from Glenn Beck’s radio show.

      On Jan. 8, 2011 22-year old Jarold Lee Laughner killed six people, including a judge and a nine-year old child, and wounded 13 others, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), using a 9mm Glock 19 pistol during a public meeting in a supermarket parking lot near Tuscon, AZ.

      On Aug. 5, 2012 Wade Michael Page, a 40-year old white supremacist and U.S. Army veteran murdered six people and wounded four others inside a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, WI with a Springfield XD(M) semi-automatic pistol.

        Interesting … it took a while to find a reference, but … (from what seem so to be a biased source, at best) for Danny (not Donny) Baker …

        “It was his involvement with the anti-immigrant movement that led him to volunteer for the Bush/Cheney campaign in 2004, but not volunteer for the 2008 McCain campaign. He did however send disturbing emails about national political issues to the Walton County Republican headquarters where he had volunteered 4 years earlier. The emails were so disturbing that they were reported them to the county sheriff.”

        Quite a staunch Republican, it seems – so much so that local Republicans showed their support for him by reporting him to the local authorities …

        Most of the folk you list are anti-every-party – especially the “Sovereign Citizen” folk … the only reason to think of them as right-wing is because the left try desperately to label them right-wing …

        Keep trying, tho …

        James Oliver Huberty was an aspirational Democrat.(hating children, Mexicans, and the United States was a dead giveaway).

        Jim David Adkisson’s (not Atkinsson) manifesto also cited his inability to find a job, and that his food stamps were being cut.

        Keith Luke, who was arrested before reaching the synagogue, told police that he opposed the “Zionist occupation” of Palestine. He has that in common with ‘Queers Undermining Israeli Terrorism’ aka ‘Queer for Palestine’, another front group for congenital morons.

        Richard Poplawski (not Popalowski), fully actualized Democrat (aka NAZI) was a fan of Stormfront and Infowars. He killed police officers who came to evict him at his mother’s request after his dog urinated on her rug. His was the second-deadliest attack on U.S. law enforcement since 9/11/01. This charmingly conservative leaning fellow, Lovelle Mixon, holds the number one spot:

        Buford O. Furrow was a fully metastasized Democrat, a NAZI

        You conveniently omitted Dr. George Tiller’s actual vocation, conflating what he did for a living with the profession of a healer.

        In the case of Jerry and Joe Kane, obviously no one has been convicted of anything and apparently their relatives and supporters contest their guilt, but I can not find a reference to their party registration.

        Byron Williams (who killed no one) was arrested on his way to the Democrat soft money front the Tides Foundation the financial backers of Speedway Bomber and domestic ‘Swatting’ terrorist Brett Kimberlin.

        Jared Lee Loughner (no such person as “Jarold Lee Laughner ” (did you check the spelling on any of the names on your list?)) enjoyed reading ‘Mein Kampf’ and ‘The Communist Manifesto’, and shot Rep. Giffords for not being left-wing enough.

        Wade Michael Page was a self-realized Democrat, a NAZI.

    Steve, great post. But, as readers note, you need to recheck the dates. It’s difficult for people to be confident in the information you present when the year for Lincoln’s assassination is wrong. He died April 15, 1865.
