Well, This will generate some lively debate around the water cooler at work. Which side do you land on?
As soon as it was reported that the Vegas shooter was using a bump stock, we knew this day was coming sooner or later. Well, once they had Googled ‘bump stock’, anyway.
Before that day, the public neither knew nor cared what a bump stock was.
Even among serious gun owners, the Bump Stock was dismissed as something of a novelty. You pay a heavy price in accuracy for any rate-of-fire gains that might be made.
And then Mandalay Bay happened, and suddenly everyone had an opinion on them.
In response to calls that he ‘do something’ about shootings, Trump has taken a few steps.
Hours earlier, Trump took action to outlaw bump stocks like the one used in the Las Vegas massacre last fall.
‘I signed a memorandum directing the Attorney General to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns,’ Trump said in the wake of a Florida massacre in which the killer did not use such a device.
His push for stricter gun controls comes after thousands of students and parents have called on his administration to implement changes to prevent future mass shootings.
Whether you think this is a big deal or not will depend on a couple of things.
1) Whether the President is making a rational decision or reacting to emotional pressure to ‘do something’ without any regard for whether the things he’ll do will actually make a meaningful difference?
2) Whether you think that limitations on access to the Bump Stock will actually solve any real problems. (Especially since there are DIY versions that can mimic the same result.)
3) Whether you think any legislation on access to the Bump Stocks are beginning to infringe on Second Amendment rights, or if they are an accessory, whose production and availability have no real bearing on your 2A Rights.
This shirt is sure to liven up the party. It doesn’t have just ONE controversial statement, but TWO. With Jesus in the mix, it could nearly start a riot.
Which, if you’ve read the book, was pretty much what would happen when Jesus swept into town, anyway. But which part of the shirt will get people more heated?
Jesus kicking ass? Some people actually have a problem with that?
Set aside the fact that he’s returning as a conquering king:
Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron.
Even in his time here, he was hardly the hippie-dippie gentle Jesus that pacifists would paint him as. He told his followers to ‘buy a sword’.
He swaggered into the temple like he owned the place. Because He does.
He saw the contempt the merchants and swindlers had for the real significance of the house — and he started braiding a whip.
A WHIP! Then he started, literally, cleaning house.
And before the Fundamentalists get too pleased with themselves… do you know what his very FIRST miracle was?
Turning water into wine.
No, dear. Not ‘grape juice’. Are you kidding? What self-respecting wedding host would have fallen for Welches?. The steward of the feast called it ‘the good stuff’. As in the quality vintage.
Why? Because a wedding is to be celebrated, with wine.
Just how much did Jesus ‘approve’ or ‘disapprove’ of wine?
Let’s flip the question back on the teetotalers: do the words ‘drink this in remembrance of me’ ring any bells?
Now that we’ve answered THAT question… Cheers!
