“They’re mortal. They have mortal weaknesses.”
Professor Clayton Forrester (played by Gene Barry) in the 1953 movie version of HG Wells’ “War of the Worlds.”
Last night, in his State of the Union Speech, JRB predictably called, once more, for a ban on (as yet undefined) “assault weapons” and (as yet undefined) “high-capacity magazines.”
With his Marxist agenda stalled in Congress, such a plea was of course designed mostly to mollify JRB’s socialist voting-base, cynically preparing them for inevitable disappointment. They are unhappy with his stark reversal on de-funding police, along with his non-performance on a host of other issues among the left’s favorite fantasies.
But, in view of the current Russian military invasion of Ukraine, yet another leftist lie has been exposed!
As an excuse for promoting bans on private ownership of military-style guns, leftists have always egotistically insisted that such guns are useless for personal defense, and equally useless for national defense against an invading army.
How arrogantly wrong they have been shown to be!
We observe now, in real time, just how effective Ukrainian civilians are in defending their homeland, using these same supposedly “useless” weapons!
In the hands of patriots, they are extremely effective, as we see!
Of course, most smug leftists have never worn their Country’s uniform, have never fired a shot in anger, couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag, and couldn’t distinguish an “assault weapon” from a waffle iron, much less operate either!
In time of crisis, every conceited leftist, who always wanted to take-away our guns, will be sheepishly begging you for one of yours (even though he wouldn’t have the foggiest idea what to do with it, and would likely end-up shooting his own foot)!
In light of the Ukrainian invasion, JRB’s despicable plea is thus falling on disenchanted ears!
“I don’t need ‘a ride’ I need ammunition!”

declined, preferring to lead from the front)
