What is a legal gun? I have no idea, but a TV station in St. Louis says they are increasingly being used to commit crimes. I know, this seems shocking, right? Here you thought legal guns were safe and did no harm, but the news says they are just as dangerous, if not more so, than the kind of guns criminals normally use. This is of course all bullshit and the liberal media’s attempt to further demonize legal responsible gun ownership.
Here’s a tweet KSDK sent out to promote their fake news:
— KSDK News (@ksdknews) February 13, 2018
Looking at that, what do you think the message KSDK is trying to convey? I get that they are saying there is some new sinister crime wave involving people without a criminal history using legally obtained firearms. That’s preposterous, but so is the actual article, which is about how criminals use guns that they steal to commit other crimes. Yes, this news station is referring to stolen guns as “legal guns.”
Here’s the first line from that article:
There is a particular type of crime on the rise in the St. Louis area that is making other crimes more dangerous – legal guns in the wrong hands.
Not that I think guns have the ability to legal or illegal, but if a gun obtained legally is a “legal gun” than if that gun were stolen and in the wrong hand, wouldn’t it then become an illegal gun? I’m sorry if that makes too much sense, but that’s how shit works.
In reality a gun is just an inanimate object that has no other qualities than simply existing. It is in the possession of that gun where things can become either legal or illegal. Someone who isn’t restricted from owning guns and obtains them through proper channels is legally possessing. Someone who can’t own a gun or steals one from someone else is illegally possessing. See the difference?
The point of this article is supposedly the not new problem that criminals steal guns. On top of trying to pass off stolen guns as legal ones, the news is also trying to shock people into thinking that scumbags just figured out that they can steal guns and commit crimes with them. Unfortunately, plenty of liberals are sitting at home right now going, “this is another reason why we should restrict legal gun ownership.”
At one point in the article, a police officer is quoted telling legal guns owners they need to do a better job of securing their firearms. Well actually he says “fire arms” which would be something different than a gun:
“If you own a fire arm and want to carry it and travel with it there’s a lot of responsibility,” said Major Steve Runge.
I say if you have a fire arm, you should douse it immediately, but this officer ain’t kidding, you do bear a lot of responsibility if your arm is on fire. I’m assuming he actually said “firearm” but whatever anti-gun hack wrote this abomination is suffering from acute gun ignorance.
This is just another way liberals twist words to support their fact-free nonsense and push their backwards agenda. They say that illegal aliens are not criminals, which is easily disproven by looking at the words, so of course they are going to claim that legal guns commit crimes.
