Trump Thinks You Have Semiautomatic Firearms To “Have A Tremendous Amount Of Fun At The Range”

BY Herschel Smith

No, seriously.  He does.

He asked the president if he would now consider banning silencers on guns after the Virginia Beach outrage in which high-capacity magazine were also used.

Trump replied that he ‘didn’t like the idea of them’ and was would ‘serious look at’ banning the noise suppressors.

He added: ‘I don’t like them [silencers]. No body’s talked about the silencers very much, they did talk about the bump stocks and we had it banned and we’re looking at that, I’m going to seriously look at it [a ban].

‘I don’t like the idea of what’s happening, what’s going on is crazy, with schools.’

[ … ]

On the subject of semi-automatic assault rifles, Trump responded to the use of AR-15 high-powered rifles that they were used for ‘sport’.

He replied: ‘Well a lot of them use it for entertainment. They do. It’s really. For some people it’s entertainment, they go out and they shoot and they go to ranges and they have a tremendous amount of fun.

My God.  Can the man construct a coherent thought for even a moment?  What on earth does schools have to do with suppressors?

At any rate, we already discussed his apparent kingly choice to go around the legislative system and single-handedly declare bump stocks illegal.  He’s apparently looking at doing that with suppressors too as we learned.

But what we didn’t know is how little he can actually craft a coherent argument for the ownership of semiautomatic firearms.  He thinks you only have an AR-15 to “have a tremendous amount of fun at the range.”

Tell that to Stephen Bayezes.  Oh and by the way, take a gander at the comments on these discussion threads on reddit/firearms.  Look here and here.

Trump is being increasingly seen as an enemy of firearms ownership.  I don’t believe the polls that show Trump as far ahead as they do.  Those polls ignore the fact that the same level of excitement for Trump won’t be there in 2020 as it was in 2016.  Gun owners may simply stay home.

Trump has no real political sensibilities except Northeastern progressive, and as I’ve mentioned doesn’t even speak the same language we do we.  But his advisors are idiots as well.

    After the dictatorial bumpstock ban went into effect I wrote a message on the White House website expressing my candid thoughts about the double victory he gave the demoncraps: 1) they got more gun control, and 2) he alienated a significant portion of his base of gun owner supporters. Even more importantly, I noted that the illogical basis of the ban would engender contempt for the law. Not just for the bumpstock ban, but for all gun law. I think we have finally reached the threshhold for “We Will Not Comply” being the normal reaction to this and most future gun control laws/regulations. Admittedly, it will be a lot tougher for the owners of NFA items to refuse to comply since the government has registered these things for decades and knows who has them (i.e. this is the inherent danger of any gun registration scheme). However, I hope the days of uncompensated taking of personal property are over. Otherwise, things might start to get “spicy”.

    Its probably a waste of time, but I am drafting another message to Trump letting him know that he is about to step in it again if he moves against suppressors. If you can, please do the same. He needs to get some idea of the pain he is about to suffer as he beats on the hornet’s nest of gun control. While there is no way I will vote for the demoncrap candidate in 2020, rest assured that I also will not vote for Trump either if he continues doing this kind of stupid.

    @BRTVS, Don Jr. SAID that he wanted the hearing protection to pass BUT Don Jr. is a lifetime NRA member, a known gun control organization (did Wayne shred the documents yet?).

    His advisors may be idiotic in their application of knowledge about firearms and firearms law but they are not idiots. His advisors are CFR, Bankster, NWO, and/or Talmudic, or one of a number of other devil worshipers but all them, make no mistake or they wouldn’t be in that post, see government as God.

    In some ways, it might have been better had Hillary been elected: we would have been unsurprised by the results. Certainly, the alternative we got wasn’t much of an improvement, but that’s been true of the GOP since its inception.

    While true, the real disappointment to me is not that known idiots are idiots. Rather, I am saddened that a supposedly shrewd businessman has made such abysmally sorry decisions in appointments, knowing _full well_ that the swamp from which he insists on drawing his water is composed of 4C (communistic controller crap candidates).

  9. On June 6, 2019 at 9:41 am, Fred said:

    And further to Trump’s advisors I’ve read elsewhere today that the Talmudist Jarid Kushner is at Builderberger or whatever it’s called. Kushner is the man who married Trump’s daughter Ivanka. Now, Ivanka had, prior to this marriage, claimed Christ (or to be Christian, whatever that means in America today). I’m assuming that Kushner sought Trump’s daughters hand before him. I couldn’t imagine it any other way but regardless, Ivanka had to renounce Christ to marry this Talmudist as is required by that religion, and again, how could the father who loves her not know these things? This is the family, these are the people at the head of your government.

    And I’m with @Frank, not that he’ll be voting, I’ve no idea, but which means that I will be voting for the craziest commie they (the Democrat Party), not meaning to belittle the Republican commies by any means)) can muster because, apparently, the only way to get the NRA (Did Wayne shred the documents yet?) to be effective is for it to fight against its paymasters opponents, it, the NRA, being a fund raising and political arm of the Republican Party apparatus (Isn’t that right Mr. Cox?), and it having zero considerations as to the man at the head of its Republican Party or any moral or ethical foundations, even those surrounding it’s supposed core mission of Gun Rights, these aspects of the NRA being, one can only rightly conclude, a feature and not a bug.

    “@Marshall, would you want compensated takings instead? How about a mandatory national gun buyback program?”

    No, but the uncompensated taking of bumpstocks rubbed salt into the gun control wound. I haven’t seen any statistics, but I suspect the number of bumpstocks turned in by individuals was very low. I don’t include the thousands of unsold bumpstocks that were turned in by a company which had little choice.

    Now that bumpstocks are considered machineguns by the government, if you have one, it probably doesn’t make much difference if you get caught with it or with a rifle modified to be full auto (drop in autosear anyone). I don’t have a bumpstock, but if I did, the government would never get it until after my ammo was exhausted. As I said before, their actions have caused me to have contempt for ALL gun control laws and the politicians that write and vote for them.

    Yeah, and few things bother me more about US foreign policy than insisting that the Russian people are a threat to white America. The Northern Block should have fully allied to prevent the southern peoples from the ongoing massive invasion of multiple continents as the Pentagon warned would happen almost 50 years ago and repeatedly over the decades since. Obama fired those at the DoD that remained who were against the destruction of western civilization. But Trump fixed that. He did fix it, right? What’s that you say? Well, I’m certain that Jared Kushner will get this done any minute now. Wut? Oh, I see.

    Fred – That was the Worst of the (many) Lies Trump spewed while running for President- that He would reach out to Improve Relations with Russia. The Easiest Way to do that would have been to End the U.S. ‘involvement’ in the War against Syria, a Russian Ally. U.S. Troops are STILL Illegally fighting in Syria, in spite of Trump’s claim that they would be Removed. Who Overruled Him? (((Kushner))) most likely. Since Then, the Russians have come to the Conclusion that the U.S. Cannot be ‘worked with’ for improving International Relations, or Trusted not to do Stupid Shit like doing a (badly-managed, Failed) Coup in Venezuela. (another Nation that has Good Relations and Military Cooperation with Russia).

    And if people here like to think that Vladimir Putin is “hostile” to the U.S., they should Read Up on what the more “Nationalist” elements in the Russian Legislature have to Say- Senators and Congressmen verbally Thrashing the Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of Defense (Shoigu) in Open Hearings, asking why Nukes haven’t been Used to Clear Out the Enemy in Syria – meaning the U.S. and ‘coalition’ Troops, and CIA/ISIS maggots. Left Unsaid was the zionist presence in the Golan Hills, which Trump recently “Approved Of” to the (((people))) who Control Him.

    What a weird set of comments. You’re entitled to weirdness, but I’m entitled to reply.

    I couldn’t care less about “improving” relations with Russia. I couldn’t care less about Russia. As for involvement in Syria, ending it because they are a Russian ally is the strangest, weirdest reason I could concoct even if I tried.

    We shouldn’t be in Syria because it doesn’t serve our strategic interests. That’s reason enough.

    As for Venezuela, that one too is a weird comment. I think we (the US) have a right to be involved in our “near abroad” just as you think Russia has a right to be involved in their “near abroad.” Consistency, sir. Or maybe better yet, neither one of us involved in our near abroad.

    The current demon at the helm of Venezuela isn’t the one I would be an ally with, with people starving to death and children perishing in hospitals because of lack of medicine. I don’t think we should be involved there, but neither should Russia. The demon who rules that awful place should spend eternity in hell for what he has done. If the CIA failed in their efforts to topple him, maybe that shows just how inept they are, or maybe we should just let the people there decide.

    Hey, I like that idea. Let the people there decide rather than the US or Russia either one. Just like in the Ukraine. I recently read a terrible commentary linked at WRSA with the author lampooning the Ukraine because of the clownishness of their politicians.

    Right. Like our own aren’t clowns. Or Russia’s. Trump is a clown. Putin is a clown. They’re all clowns. It’s clown-world all around. I don’t give a rat’s ass what happens in Russia. I don’t care what happens in the Ukraine. The Ukraine has as much right to separate from Russia as does the state of South Carolina from the US, without either Russian or US intervention.

    I don’t see Russia as an enemy. But I also don’t see them as an ally.

    Who is an enemy of the US? First, the US. Second, China.

    @Herschel, It’s your blog and we got a bit OT although we did stay within the realm of Trump and his policies. Sorry. The back and forth between @Gryphon and myself is an on again – off again occasionally recurring and ongoing conversation about US failure to make allies with what we think could be some natural fits and to avoid those that would seem to be less so. His comment wasn’t weird to me. I brought it up by mentioning the “Northern Block” which includes the US and Russia. You missed the now months old prior conversations about this very topic, and why would you remember them from any other comments here? Anyway, in fact, I thought Gryphon was spot on in his survey of the US’ refusal to stop playing the 1960’s proxy war charade with Russia. I think that both countries would be better served allied and Gryphon likely agrees from what I’ve ascertained. We should at least stop stupidly re-fighting the cold war, especially when we have natural similarities and common enemies. I do care about Russia which is a nationalistic Christian nation, and especially with Europe committing suicide seeing as I now have near ZERO in common with the people of Europe any more, just like I don’t have anything in common with New England and California. Like Russia, I’m even more interested in Poland. But the US is run by anti-Christs so why would we make allies with Christians? Sorry ’bout the OT ramble.

    I care quite a lot about Russia, they may yet become a larger ally of the southern nationalist movement than they’ve been in the past. It’s not an accident that their navy flies the Saint Andrews Cross on their naval ensign and that the Donbass autonomous region flies a modified Confederate Battle Flag as their national flag.

    That Russia is a Orthodox Christian nation is a plus, particularly at a time that the Novus Ordo non-pope sits on the throne in the Vatican.

    Remember, Orthodoxy, all of whom are in communion with one another, has Apostolic Authority, something no so-called protestant churches can claim.

    Sigh …


    “The US is run by anti-Christs … Russia which is a nationalistic Christian nation.”

    I think you’re fooling yourself. If you look at a cross section of the religious sensibilities in Russia you’ll see something about like the US, from Islamic to atheist to Hindu to just about everything else. With a state that basically hates all of it and wants to be god itself. Just like here in the US. There are anti-Christs everywhere. The Russian anti-Christ right now is that while they may have jettisoned the Bolshevik elements within their ranks, the communist order remains. And in case you need more proof, Russian gun control is more extreme than US gun control, at least for the moment.


    Sigh …

    We’ve discussed this before, but let’s do it one more time. No Protestant CAN claim Apostolic succession because no Protestant WANTS to claim Apostolic succession. To do so would be to miss the entire point, and that’s what you’ve done.

    I won’t go into a long discussion about the gifts of the Spirit, the renting of the veil of the Holy of Holies, and on and on. I could, but you would reject it, so why bother.

    I say again to you and others reading. To the extent that a church rejects the Athanasian creed and adopts Arius, that church is heretical or apostate. The Eastern church does not fully embrace the Athanasian creed.

    I’ll leave it to you to study what I’ve said, why I might have said it, the degree to which I’m right or wrong.

    I didn’t say to go ask your teachers. You need to study this for yourself. I suspect you’ve selected a church because of your views on race and politics, rather than selected your views on race and politics because of theology.

    I do have one more thought to share on this, contrary to silly notions that “Russia is a Christian nation.”


    My CV includes having studied the Chernobyl event in detail, including the neutronics design of the RBMK reactor, and having trained DOE engineers on the event. None of you can say the same thing.

    The suppression of one of my folk heroes, Valery Legasov, by the Russian government, his having been forced by the KGB to lie in his testimony before the IAEA in Vienna, and the necessity to make tapes before his death to pass on his legacy because he had been ordered not to speak of the matter ever again, testifies to everything I’m saying here.

    They learned totalitarianism well under Stalin and Lenin, and continue it to this day.

    For this reason, and a 1000 more, I chuckle when I see someone claim that “Russia is a Christian nation.”

    @ Herschel

    I don’t think it’s a waste of time for you to go into a little more depth.

    I was raised as a Catholic Christian. It’s no secret that the Roman Catholic Church is turning its back on the truth. A few years ago, when my child was born, the last straw happened. I was told that I’d have to jump through hoops and attend classes for my son to be baptized. I found a “conservative” Episcopal Church that performed the Baptism, or a least as conservative and bible believing as one can find among the Episcopals these days, but that was far from an ideal spiritual community and I’m currently unchurched. On the whole, I like the Book of Common Prayer and think the doctrines in the 39 Articles are sound. I’m hopeful of finding a more suitable Anglican church.

    I’ve studied quite a bit the doctrines and history of the Eastern Orthodox. When I look at the dispute which led to the split with Rome in 1054, I must confess that I side with the orthodox. I don’t plan on converting, they have problems of their own. However, aside from a few Nestorian groups that use the word “orthodox” in their titles and have been out of communion with other orthodox since around the time that Rome fell, I have found no indication that they reject the Athanasian Creed. Do you have a source on that?

    Well, What a Weird set of Replies…
    Herschel – You may think that my comments are ‘weird’, but I do not believe that particular one was ‘inconsistent’ as much as you believe. I try to be Very Clear in expressing My Opinion that the fUSA ‘government’ has Not been acting in the interests of the Citizens for over a Century now, and more recently, it has become Disgustingly Clear that the Creatures that ‘run the Swamp’ are primarily “zionist Neocons” whose Political Goals are NOT in the interest of the Citizens, nor even of the Peoples of the World at large, in spite of how (((they))) have labled themselves as “Globalists”.

    I am unalterably Opposed to the zionist/globalist control of the U.S. government, and its Use of Our Military to be their Mercenary Force against other Nations. The direction that this situation is headed should be Frightening to Anyone who understands what could Happen were the zionist/neocon War Pigs like Pompeo and Bolton ‘push too far’ and force Russia and/or China to Defend their Interests with War. Pushing Over small Nations like Iraq, Syria, Libya, Venezuela, etc. for the Profit$ of the Moneychanger$ has led these Fools into believing that they can Pressure both Russia and China into doing their Bidding, i.e. allow their Resources
    and People to be Looted and Enslaved.

    You are Clearly Wrong in saying that Russia is ‘communist’. The Communist Party in Russia is a Fringe Group, comparable to the Greens or Libertarians in the U.S. Russia is a Republic, within a Federation of Nations. Look it Up.

    Communism, and the bolshevik ‘jew’ communist party ‘apparatchniks’ were Driven Out and/or ‘Self-Deported’ quickly after (((their))) soviet union Fell Apart. Over 9 Million ‘jews’ fled Russia to the U.S. and the zionist state of israel. This is the Reason the (((jew owned))) Media is in Hysterics against anything “Russian”, and the attempt to Foment War against Russia is Naked in its Obviousness. For Historical Reference, look up “Judea Declares War on Germany” and You will see Exactly the same ‘Playbook’ being run by (((them))) today.

    You are Clearly Wrong in saying that Russia is not a Christian Nation; the Majority of the People are White Christians just like Yourself.

    You are Clearly Wrong in saying that the Russian Orthodox Church is ‘not christian’ according to (whatever) Your Definition of “Christian” is.

    The Orthodox Church worships Jesus Christ, which is the Root Definition of being considered Christian. Just because They don’t belong to the same Sect as You Do does Not make them ‘unchristian’. Arguing that they are Not, on the basis of Differences in what are essentially ‘political’ Points of Worship and ‘political’ involvement with other Sects does Nothing to affect the Fact that they Worship the same Deity as You do.

    You would have No More Success in telling a Russian Orthodox Christian that He “wasn’t a christian” than you would of telling a Shi’a Muslim that He “wasn’t muslim” compared to a Sunni Muslim. (Try That in front of One of Each; it should be Entertaining)

    “I couldn’t care less about “improving” relations with Russia. I couldn’t care less about Russia. As for involvement in Syria, ending it because they are a Russian ally is the strangest, weirdest reason I could concoct even if I tried.
    We shouldn’t be in Syria because it doesn’t serve our strategic interests. That’s reason enough.”
    You are Missing the Point entirely there, ending it because Syria is a Russian Ally is because the fUSA shouldn’t be F’kk’g with other Nations that have Nukes. Not even North Korea.

    p.s. as for your Totally off-topic comment regarding Chernobyl Incident, it occurred during the Time of the ‘soviet union’, so your comparison of the actions of the soviet government to current Russia is a Fail; Never mind that it has Nothing to Do with Christianity.

    There is a lot of water over this dam and we can’t cover everything, but I’ll try to hit a few highlights.

    “I am unalterably Opposed to the zionist/globalist control of the U.S. government, and its Use of Our Military to be their Mercenary Force against other Nations.”

    So am I. You’re seeking a disagreement where there isn’t any.

    “You would have No More Success in telling a Russian Orthodox Christian that He “wasn’t a christian” than you would of telling a Shi’a Muslim that He “wasn’t muslim” compared to a Sunni Muslim. (Try That in front of One of Each; it should be Entertaining).”

    You aren’t qualified to say. Look, this can get complicated very quickly, and I still owe a post to another reader on the nature of the person of Jesus and how the East and West see things differently. That’ll still have to wait – I just don’t have the time for it now. But in any debate of this sort objective definitions are crucial: who and what is man, who and what is God, how is God related to man, the nature of the trinity, the two natures in the one person of Christ (100% human and 100% divine), the work and incarnation of Christ, the procession of the Holy Spirit, etc., etc. There are certain things a man must believe in order to be a Christian. It isn’t a function of ethnicity, race, practices on Sunday, wearing crosses around your neck, or whether you aunt or uncle carried you to church and how you generally feel about things. It has to do with a sovereign act of God working through His Holy Spirit when you are dead and incapable of choosing good. The East and West see things very differently on many of these things. For instance, the East rejects the federal headship of Adam in original sin, and accepts it only insofar as mortality is concerned. They reject the sovereignty of God, I accept it. They reject the perseverance of the elect, and believe that our eternal state is a mystery. I believe in the assurance of salvation. I could go on and on for hours. It’s not productive at the moment to do so. Suffice it to say that boiling all of this down to who’s uncle was in the line of so-and-so (e.g., the disagreement between Shia and Sunni) is wrongheaded.

    “You are Missing the Point entirely there, ending it because Syria is a Russian Ally is because the fUSA shouldn’t be F’kk’g with other Nations that have Nukes. Not even North Korea.”

    Maybe they shouldn’t be F****** with us either.

    Regardless of who scattered after the fall of the USSR, Russia is still very much a totalitarian state and functions that way, a little more so than does the U.S. Notice that I said a little more so. I consider the U.S. to be on the verge of being a communist state, just like Russia (although we still have less stringent gun laws, for how long I don’t know). Of course, neither is as totalitarian as China.

    Of course, as I recall you are an atheist, so none of this will matter a great deal to you. Either way, I value my readers and we can still be on amicable terms.

    We just have to disagree on this.

  24. On June 11, 2019 at 10:14 am, Fred said:

    @Herschel, Now you have me interested in the coming response about Eastern doctrine. I’m pretty sure that it wasn’t Paul’s favorite thing to do, writing letters about the variances of his time, such as antinomianism, paganism, and the Judaizers, that were purposefully or mistakenly creeping into the early church. Hey, do it gladly.

    Unfortunately unbelievers only see this as an interdenominational squabble proving, to them, that we don’t know what we believe. Which is why I avoid doctrine with unbelievers but the readers here have been told, many times in different ways, to believe on the LORD Christ Jesus the saving of your soul or burn in hell.

    I maintain that some Catholics are my brothers and sisters, simply lead astray by communists. Bad doctrine and heresy, while intolerable, is one thing, but blaspheme against our LORD is another, as you’ve indicated may be the case in Eastern beliefs; by rejecting Adam’s federal headship over sin and therefor/thereafter death, how do they then accept the remission of sin and life eternal by Jesus’ federal headship? Was Jesus crucified for nothing, why did He bother being crucified if there is no federal headship? This is a huge no go Red Flag to me. Somebody under conviction would not sit under blasphemies for long, I’m convinced of this.

    Do the Eastern denomination(s) believe Transubstantiation? If you know could you please address it when you get to the coming post, because there are many denominations that have made religion out of a verse or two but I can’t find that one anywhere in the Bible. Do Easterners listen to priests reciting select verses in Latin or do they read the book for themselves?

    Being uneducated, I’m just a guy who reads his King James Holy Bible. Please forgive my ignorance.

  25. On June 11, 2019 at 10:59 am, Fred said:

    And one more thing. I would ask my brothers, if they are my brothers, and I would also ask unbelievers as well; if Adam had no federal headship over man’s fall into sin, if I understand that position correctly, what do these verses say to you, as no doctrine is of private interpretation:

    “And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”
    Later, after listening to the devil. (Hey, STOP listening to the devil, hear God.)
    “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.”
    Later, God was looking for Adam (as He’s seeking you now.)
    “And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

    Why, oh why, would Adam be ashamed except by way of Sin? Keep in mind that this nakedness was the exposing of the soul to the the knowledge of good and evil and what a horrific thing, living in a perfect state of nature in holy communion with the LORD and in the next moment being thrust into the realization of evil, sin, and soon thereafter to discover toil and aging and that God no longer hung around with you in the cool of the evening. If you did not inherent this from Adam then of what are you ashamed, why do you knowingly do wrong, are you wearing clothes right now, why are you half lost wandering through this life, why are you a sinner? Do you need to be absolved of this, made to be free, finally at peace with our Creator? For what did Christ die? Nothing? Heaven forbid it. He is the propitiation of sin. Without Him you suffer and will suffer the consequences of your sinful nature. But, and it’s the best but in all of history, He will save your soul if you tell him that you’re sorry for your sin and ask Him to forgive you and save your soul from eternal damnation? Can He? Yes He will.
