Which is harder, voting or buying a gun?

Posted by Richard on October 29, 2018

Ho hum. Another anti-gun leftist betrays his abysmal ignorance of gun laws. And of voting.

Executive Director for Build the Wave, Nate Lerner, wants to make it as hard to buy a gun as it is to vote.


We are totally good with making it as hard to buy a gun as it is to vote.



I suppose a case could be made for flipping his argument around.

Suppose the opposite side of Nate’s tweet could work as well, maybe we do need to make it harder for some people to vote. Oh, don’t worry, just the illegal people … and the dumb ones.

    Fair enough, you may cast a vote upon presentation of successful completion of a standard instant background check within 1 week of submitting your ballot. Should give everybody plenty of time.

      Well, I’m tempted to suggest that the ease or difficulty of voting should mirror the ease or difficulty of buying a gun in each state or locality. That would severely reduce the number of votes coming out of the Northeast and the Left Coast, which would be a Very Good Thing.

      But that’s pretty un-libertarian. I’d rather make buying a gun as easy as voting instead of making voting as difficult as buying a gun. “Hi, I want to buy the AeroPrecision AR-10 in 6.5 Creedmore. I am who I say I am, and here’s a utility bill showing that I live here. Oh, it’s not in stock? But if I go to your website to buy it and give you my name and address, you’ll ship it to my home? Cool.”

    I want a PS90 for Christmas. I just LOVE 5.7mm….:=)

      Well, I’d rather have a P90 (select fire), but it’s for military and law enforcement only. Both are butt-ugly, which seems to be something that FN considers a feature. That said, I wouldn’t mind getting anything from FN as a Christmas present. I don’t know anything about 5.7×28 other than what I’ve read; it sounds pretty impressive for a pistol-caliber round.

      If someone wants to give me a bullpup for Christmas, make it the Kel-Tec RDB. I’m fine with 5.56×45. And they seem mighty proud of their trigger, which is traditionally a weak point for bullpups.

      As for pistol-caliber carbines (PCCs), I’d be happy to get any of the ones on this list. If buying my own, I’d be torn between the Hi-Point and the Kel-Tec.

      Rick, I remember your raving about your FN Five seveN pistol, and I’d love to have one. But Colorado has a 15-round limit, which obviates the main advantage of that gun.

      I’m afraid that Colorado has changed a lot since I moved here in 1983. Back then, it was a red state, mostly populated by conservatives and libertarians, with some enclaves of leftists (Boulder, Denver, Aspen). Now, thanks to the influx of easterners and Californians, and the big bucks of megamillionaires like Jared Polis, Tim Gill, and Pat Stryker, its a purple state. It looks like, after next week’s election, it might become a totally blue state. If that happens, I’m seriously thinking about moving back to Knoxville, TN.

        You owe it to yourself to at least go to a gun store that has a range and does not mind customers test firing any handgun that interests them and try that bad boy out. Since an FN 57 has a muzzle velocity of very damn near 1700 fps and is known to be able to penetrate class II and some class III Kevlar vests if you use fully jacketed mil spec ammo, which of course I DO, then I would consider it to be the very best self defense weapon in the world outside of a flame thrower.

          Oh and by the way. I’d love for you to move back to K-Town so I’d have somebody to go visit. All MY close relatives up there are either deceased or have moved away. Besides, it has it’s advantages: you wouldn’t have to put up with the winter weather in Colorado anymore. :=)
