There is a lot of information to process as of this morning.
On one hand, the results of yesterdays elections and the further advancement of the Communist Strategy is going to have a serious impact on what I decide to do next.
On a National level, the resignation announcement of AG Jeff Sessions this morning and the effects on the war on the Deep State is also going to have an impact albeit much of which will be unknown until sometime in the future. That is a spectator sport kinda thing anyway
More pressing and much closer to home is of course the Left Tard Gun Control Jackasses and their successful passing of yet another restrictive gun law designed specifically to turn law abiding citizens into criminals and ratcheting the incremental agenda of gun registration and confiscation up yet one more notch.
It is now a law that all of the citizens of the State of Washington have their duly registered weapons “Secured” at all times in ones own home under the threat of being held criminally liable if one of them winds up being used in a crime by someone else and the gun can be traced back to you.
This to me violates not only our national Constitution but also this state’s, which is almost a verbatim copy.
It also imposes a hardship on gun owners with more than just one or two guns, especially if they are long guns, ie; rifles.
What is their definition of secure?
Locked up of course.
How do you lock up multiple rifles?
With a fucking Gun Safe, of course!
That’s all well and good.
Where is someone say, like me, a renter, supposed to put this safe?
Out in the garage?
Behind a flimsy sheet metal door that can be gotten into by anyone serious in a matter of minutes?
A closet? In the bedroom?
These things are quite heavy and are designed to be bolted down.
I’m almost positive the Rental Management company in charge of this place would shit little golden apples if I started drilling holes in the floors or the concrete out in the garage to bolt down a safe and that would open me up to all kinds of misery.
This is just one example to ponder out of several million cases of lawful gun owners in this state.
Of course the Gun Control Gestapo looks on that as an opportunity for us to get discouraged and just sell off what is our God Given right to self defense.
It’s a juicy win for these cretins either way.
So I am discussing this subject with the Wifely Unit and trying to remember how many guns I have that can be traced to me on paper, illegally BTW, the government is supposed to destroy the forms you have to fill out when you buy one after a certain time period if I recall.
This brings the questions of how in the hell are they supposed to know what I own and what I don’t and who is responsible for keeping track of this ?
I would really like to know the answer to that last one.
Either way, I think I have three guns with a paper trail on me.
One is a Taurus .45 I bought a couple of years ago, a 12 gauge pump the Wife bought me and a Ruger 10/22.
The .45 has already been spoken for and will be sold with the appropriate Government sanctioned FFL transfer paperwork being done upon the final sale, that being done before Christmas.
That is one down.
The 12 gauge has never had a round through it. It may soon be on the disposal list also but I like having it around.
The Ruger has had some Mods to it and I will keep that one.
So my question now is, what about any guns that I have owned over the years before all this Commie overreach came into being are still floating around out there unknown to me?
I have no fucking clue.
Back before all this crap, we as a people, bought and sold guns all the fucking time without even thinking about it.
If someone commits a crime with a gun I sold off twenty years ago and I can’t even remember owning and then they show up at my door to haul me off I think there is going to be a problem.
But you know, sensible gun laws are the right thing to do.
Think of the children, won’t you?
I still have some more thinking to do about my immediate response to this new law.
Running out and buying a gun safe just to comply with their bullshit isn’t real high on my list of things to do yet and multiple trigger locks is a non starter.
Back to the political shift nationally for a quick moment, there is much to absorb there also and I am going to sit back and watch what transpires before I say much of anything about it.
The Republicans still control both the House and the Senate until January.
Perhaps for once in my entire life, they will wake the fuck up and get something done in that time span.
I ain’t holding my breath.
