Far-right GOP gunsexual bigoted crackpots such as shock-jock Alex Jones love to propagandise that all liberal lefties are anti-masculine sandal wearing & granola munching vegetarian politically correct peacenik hipster commie fascists who are all anti-gun, yep I’m guilty as fuck of being a sandal wearing politically correct peacenik commie & enormously proud of it, because I appreciate as a Jewish trans woman with physical disabilities feeling relatively safe doing the weekly grocery shop without the need to arm myself with a Glock or Beretta or a fucking AK47 out of fear for own self-protection, but of course I live in the United Kingdom not the United States, however none of my politically lefty liberal friends living in the United States are in fact anti-gun, actually one of my lefty liberal friends living in the United States expressed real concern about the current White House administration having nefarious motives if it ever did opt to push for gun control.
Generally most on the left of the political spectrum in the United States are in favour of there being tighter gun control measures, in fact the vast majority of both liberals & conservatives are in favour of there being tighter control measures, measures such as background checks on anybody purchasing a firearm to prevent criminals & those who are mentally ill from purchasing a firearm, this of course is usually interpreted by the likes of Alex Jones the bigoted gunsexual crackpot as the hyperbolic ‘the feds are coming for your guns’ bullshit which he continuously propagates on his radio show & Infowars website because actually having common sense gun control measures to prevent those who are unfit to possess a firearm from actually purchasing a firearm is an infringement upon his constitutional right under the Second Amendment blahdy-blah because the deranged fucker can’t get sexually aroused without fondling an AR-15 assault rifle blah, but despite it sounding way too Alex Jones, it probably is extremely valid for anybody on the left of the political spectrum in the United States to fear the motives of the Trump administration if it ever did propose there being greater gun control & particularly how they would class somebody as being mentally unfit to own a firearm as Donald Trump & his crazed supporters seem to think anybody who disagrees with them is mentally ill.
It’s straight out of the fascist playbook, fascist despots throughout history have made out political opponents are mentally unhinged & then disarmed them, considering Trump is a neo-fascist fuck who’s currently sitting in the White House I can see why those on the left of the political spectrum in the United States who oppose him & his fascistic bullshit might fear any support he gives to there being greater restrictions on gun ownership having the nefarious motive of wanting to disarm them as the first step to brutalising or erasing them, of course this is pretty much the same argument we’ve heard over the years from the far-right whenever there’s a Democrat in the White House or when the Democrats control Congress & are proposing tighter restrictions on gun ownership though there is one crucial difference which is liberals & those on the left of the political spectrum are far more likely to be targets in any mass shooting in the United States when its politically motivated. When was the last time you heard of a social-democrat picking up a gun & going on a killing spree, yeah fucking never, it’s always some ignorant unhinged far-right scumfuck full of hate who seems to carry out these mass shootings when they’re politically motivated & it’s Donald Trump who’s helping to ape these scumfucks to go on killing sprees with all his racist bilge as we saw very recently with Trump being quoted in ‘the manifesto’ which the El Paso shooter wrote to repugnantly justify why he was going on a killing spree, so regardless of Trump any time soon pushing for tighter gun restrictions to disarm political opponents as one way or another it has fuck all chance of getting any kind of approval from Congress, it’s simply Trump’s rhetoric which is encouraging far-right loons to target political opponents with bullets.
In the week which has followed since a White supremist nazi terrorist shot dead 22 people & injured 24 others at a Walmart store in El Paso, another scumbag far-right dickhead was detained on this past Friday & charged with making a terrorist threat after walking into a Walmart store in the Missouri city of Springfield heavily armed & wearing body armour claiming they wanted to find out if Walmart still honoured the Second Amendment & this isn’t the only story I’ve read of far-right loons pulling similar bullshit this past week & causing a mass panic at a time when emotions are on edge, all things considered you just know it’s not if but when another far-right scumfuck loon manages to go on another killing spree in the United States.
Sadly it really is only matter of time before some other ignorant unhinged far-right scumfuck does go on a killing spree with an assault rifle, because Donald Trump or Alex Jones or QAnon have fed their fevered crazed minds with fake news bullshit about liberal America being their enemy, so no wonder those on the left of the political spectrum living in the United States might want to arm themselves to the fucking teeth fearing unless they do then they might not survive the weekly shop at the local supermarket.
Considering the current political climate I can appreciate why politically leftwing friends of mine living in the United States are scared shitless for their own safety & I can appreciate out of fears for their own safety why they might opt to arm themselves & question the motives of any gun control legislation proposed by the Trump administration, but the problem for me is they’re falling the trap of paranoia which the arms industry profits from, the paranoia of thinking you need to buy a firearm for self-protection because some other fucker living down the street also has an assault weapon & you never know what their intent is for owning it, trouble is if you’re on the left of the political spectrum or openly LGBTQ or work at an abortion clinic or an immigrant worker that paranoia is very much the reality.
