‘Gunquislings’ Deserve Appropriate Response from Liberty Advocates

ScreenHunter_10 Nov. 12 13.44
What kind of firearms-related businesses would side with Bloomberg? What kind of gun owners would shrug that off like it’s no big deal? Original poster text: “With Quisling for the New Norway.”

“[S]ome gun owners and gun dealers are also background check proponents,” Fox 5 KVVU-TV Las Vegas notes in a report on Michael Bloomberg’s bought-and-paid for campaign to end private sales in Nevada. They’ve found two who are happy to go on record siding with out-of-state moneyed elitist interests.

“A lot of people are trying to say we shouldn’t do background checks, they don’t work,” Alex Acree of Fallout Firearms in North Las Vegas gushes. “They absolutely work.”

Yeah, as long as you don’t mind adding little “necessity” identified by the National Institute of Justice, the Department of Justice research arm, in its “Summary of Select Firearm Violence Prevention Strategies”:

Effectiveness depends on the ability to reduce straw purchasing, requiring gun registration…

Does anyone really think billionaire Bloomberg is going to invest millions without maximizing his return and advancing toward his goal?

Then there’s Kourosh Haroni, who runs the Rocky Mountain Gun Show at South Point Casino. He’s proud of going above and beyond current Nevada law by forbidding private sales.

“That’s our standards at the Rocky Mountain Gun Show,” he proclaims. “That’s what we believe.”

Having the state coerce people who prefer to keep their rights to themselves into the collective customer pool won’t hurt the bottom line, either.

“This is an excellent look at what we can expect more of as we get closer to the 2016 vote,” Don Turner of Nevadans for State Gun Rights observes in an email forwarding the Fox 5 report link to supporters. “Some people that are in the gun business aren’t our friends.

“The TV stations are giving them free publicity, and low information gun owners and gun businesses are giving them free talking points,” Turner notes.  Curiously – or not if you understand how the media works – his group is not even mentioned in the report while heavily-funded Bloomberg front group, Nevadans for Background Checks, is.

Turner and his group have been fighting heroically against the disproportionately financed and organized Bloomberg machine, and the media just adds to the pile-on. The elites who think they know best really are out to control the narrative along with our rights. That’s why every Nevada gun owner – every gun owner, really, because once Bloomberg has despoiled the Silver State he’ll roll on to his next objective – ought to already be in the fight.

It makes it especially outrageous, inexcusable and unforgivable to see firearms-related businesses giving aid and comfort to their customers’ enemies, especially by joining in the propaganda campaign. All Nevada gun shops, ranges, trainers, FFLs and gun shows ought to be at the forefront of leading in the defense against Bloomberg, not helping him rack up a victory by steering low information voters his way. It makes it fair to wonder how much motivation is purely opportunistic.

Gun owners deserve to know who is selling them out and who supports them, and to make their decisions on which companies and individuals to patronize accordingly. Why on earth would you do business with someone either staying out of the fray and/or actively undermining your rights, like the craven lairds in “Braveheart,” who let the commoners make all the sacrifices while they profited from abetting tyranny?

There’s a word for such collaborators. And that also applies to “sport shooters” who put hobbies over rights.

  1. Here in Texas, the CCW instructors have bee vocally against proposals to eliminate concealed carry laws and just make it legal for anyone to carry without a license or permission (which is as it should be).

    Of course they would rather maintain the status quo rather than give up some of their income or having to work harder to get clients.

    Here’s the thing about Bloomberg, he’s spending a LOT of money trying to take our rights and the result has been that more people are seeing the need to make sure we defend those rights. So let him keep spending his money, he’s only hurting his own cause.

  2. “What kind of firearms-related businesses would side with Bloomberg?”

    Um, those that are soon to be out of business? These people need to be Zumbo’ed…

  3. quisling FUDDS…thinking they will not be eaten if sacrificing the rights of others but in fact will be eaten themselves, in the end, IF they do not become just mere agents of state. Infected by liberal mental disorder/disease.

  4. I agree with Dr. Edwin Vieira on this, any gun law written and implemented IS Treason on the part of those doing so.

    Prosecute them and if found guilty…
    well you all know the rest

    If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

    Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

  5. Ya David, we took it in the shorts here in Washington state also. We had some courageous folks that stood up, I really got a kick out of Kit Lang and our rep. Matt Shea, but now a year later I hear no talk about it.I have been wanting to sell a couple of guns, but I don’t want the gun shops taking 20% from me. Ya and it was Bloomberg, Gates, and a few other globalists that paid for most of it, and a heaping helping of Gifford on the west side of the state for their commercials. Shoot I never saw one of them on the east side. We have tried to split the state several times to no avail, just like Jefferson in CA. Our state is like two different countries at each others throats.I have a lot of relatives that live on the west side, and talking to them is……well bizarre to say the least. it is as if they were spawned on a distant planet far,far away.I have given up communicating with them since my dad died.What a shame and what a country so dividend.

  6. When watching the Democratic Party’s candidates for the presidential primaries (they had to include a socialist just so it doesn’t look too lame) I realize that all the top powerful democrats have fallen on their swords to promote the Obama agenda and have been destroyed. The same will happen with these people I’m sure.

  7. For assault weapon ban, waiting period, & background check
    I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun. With today’s Internet technology we should be able to tell within 72-hours if a potential gun owner has a record.
