We’re Not Australia/New Zealand, So We’ll Keep Our Guns, Thanks Anyway USA Today

Oh, my goodness! A Tuareg tribesman in Douentza, Mali, shot and killed three innocent members of the rival Songhai tribe as they were walking to the well to get some water. We should probably just overturn the Second Amendment here in America and surrender our guns. You know, to be on the safe side.

That makes about as much sense as USA Today’s argument that we should all turn in our guns because of the mosque shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand. A bad person did a bad thing with a gun somewhere, so all of you good people who haven’t done anything bad should surrender your rights.

We’ve said this before and it’s worth repeating: How about no?

The situation in New Zealand has gone from bad to worse, by the way. It’s disgusting to even talk about, but we need to tell you about this because the American media is imposing a total blackout on the story (other than using the original shooting to hammer us with arguments for gun control).

The New Zealand gun ban backfired spectacularly. As of this writing, only 37 Kiwis have willingly turned in their guns. Only 1,199,963 to go!

Since the people aren’t complying, cops have started going door-to-door in New Zealand and confiscating firearms. They’re going to homes and businesses and taking guns away from law-abiding citizens.

New Zealand doesn’t have a gun registry, so they don’t know exactly who owns all of the firearms… so they’re trying to go everywhere. One guy who didn’t want to give up his firearms got into a standoff with police. He’s dead now. One casualty of New Zealand gun confiscation so far, and we’ll keep you posted as the situation continues to deteriorate there.

We have our own share of idiots to worry about right here in America, in the meantime. The USA Today editorial board decided it would do a big push for gun control in the wake of the New Zealand debacle. We’ll get to their poll catastrophe in a second, but first, here’s how their big editorial argument started:

“The United States, Australia and New Zealand share a historical heritage of frontier adventurism – the kind that bred a familiarity with firearms as tools for putting food on the table, or later as a sporting pastime.”

No. No, no, no. A thousand times: No.

That opening sentence has about 17 different layers of stupid to unpack, but we’ll just focus on the first layer of stupid – that America is just like Australia and New Zealand (and therefore we should give up our guns like they have). Australia is under British rule. New Zealand is semi-independent, but also sort-of under British rule to this day. It’s complicated and depends on which Kiwi you ask. America is not under British rule, largely because of those “tools for putting food on the table.”

Here, we’ll explain it so that even our Aussie and Kiwi friends can understand, with apologies to our American readers for the Australian slang:

We Americans are not dole bludgers who will surrender our God-given rights just because some drongo in a necktie thinks it’s dardy. So rack off, mate!

We’re Americans. While we respect the rights of our Australian and New Zealand friends – who have been staunch allies of America for more than a century – we also recognize that they live in different, separate countries.

Different countries, different rules. You want to give up your guns? Have fun with that. We want our families and our nation to be safe. We’ll keep ours.

After attempting to lower everyone’s IQ with their editorial, USA Today posed a poll to its readers: “What do you think of our view on gun laws?” The results were spectacular!

More than 12,500 said they Disagree or Strongly Disagree with USA Today, and less than 1,100 said they Agree or Strongly Agree. Sure, it’s not a scientific poll, but a 90% failure rate is pretty awesome to see.

It’s nice that Americans still care enough to put the smackdown on USA Today like that. The editorial board is probably sitting around thinking that Russian bots voted in their poll. You can’t have our guns, USA Today. Stop asking.

  1. The New Zealand mosque shooting was a total fake! It never happened! I watched the video three times and it was so poorly acted out with fake bullets, no blood, dead people who were never shot, no bullet holes in walls, rifle recoil that wasn’t shooting, a guy shot point blank with a shotgun that just dropped straight down without blood splatter. Piles of bodies and people that were never shot. A total lie! Podesta and Chelsea Clinton were there three days before, so figure it out!

    1. I saw the video as well and totally agree!!! Its a crock of crap!The Clinton’s and the evil Liberal,Communist DEMONcrats are doing all they can too disarm us so they can take over!!! I will end up just like that guy in N.Z. for sure because ill “NEVER” give up my guns! im too old to live under oppression!!!

    2. I showed the video to several friends which they showed it to others
      some people were combat vets and active military combat marines and army all agree, there were no live rounds shot and no body were shot..
      all said the same thing where is the blood, the bullet holes, the blood splatter..

      1. Can someone Please tell me what the URL is to view this video ?

  2. If Americans were meant to be Tories, we would never have rebelled against George III.

    Our Constitution forbids certain things that would seem somewhat alien to Aussies, Canadians, Kiwis, and Pommies, namely the Bill of Rights and a Constitution that does not accept the concept of heraldic aristocracy – we, in America, should believe in meritocracy. The Aussie, Canadian, and Kiwi constitutions allow censorship of speech, press, and assembly as well as confiscation of weapons and suspension of due process. The Pommies don’t even have a systematic constitution – just a loose collection of interpretive historical documents.

    Those non-American anglo-cultures are riddled with Marxist contamination.

  3. Law Enforcement agencies, Municipal-Government, all the way up, they swear an oath to abide -by, and protect, the Constitution!
    Evidently that Oath means nothing! Why even have a requirement, if it is not enforced?
    The 2nd Amendment is cut&dry
    “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” so if our officials in our democracy swear an oath, why are we even discussing gun-confiscation? Our government has always bullied its way around, and killed, to get what it wants! The American Indians were treated as badly as the Jews, mothers, babies, elders, and leaders of all American Indian tribes, had their babies heads busted by rifle butts, stabbed with bayonets, shot, run over with horses, killed by their swords, and the remaining, marched into a fenced off area called reservations! Our government will send forces to your home and kick down your doors, any time they feel like it. Whether we like it or not, the people, are ignored, manipulated, imprisoned, and murdered! Do not be naive, witnesses in Vegas saw multiple shooters in tactical equipment just the same as the ATF wears, just like the military wears, and law enforcement wears!
    The NWO has had their plans put on hold, regarding the USA because HRC, and BHO, failed to deliver! They must have us, totally vulnerable, just like the Japanese Military said of Pearl-Harbor, when asked why they didn’t go further? “Because there would be a gun, behind every blade of grass!” That was a foreign General in the Japanese Navy! That is the foresight our Forefathers saw, and it makes you realize our government today, does not have our best interests at heart! If they are willing to gun down hundreds of men, women, an children, at an outside event in Las Vegas, and at our children’s schools, churches, to gain support for gun confiscation, then send in the Obama-corrupted, FBI to investigate the shooting that they just did, ATF, FBI, CIA, FEMA, USPS, DHS, all armed, and suppress witnesses and other local law enforcement, we are in serious trouble as citizens! No government entity, in America, should have that kind of sinister power! If we fail to stand and fight, we will lose! So keep filling out those polls, like that will stop them! One day very soon, we will have to take an armed stance against our government, in order to keep America from being destroyed by our government!

  4. I always wonder at the stupidy and ignorance of the American people.
    what does it take to get it into their heads. When guns are outlawed. Only outlaws will have guns. Now how are these people going to defend family and loved ones?


  5. PASS AND SPREAD TO ALL YOU KNOW!!!The DDD(Dumb,Dumber,demonrats) want a socialist USA. Obama was influenced by the writings and philosophies Saul Alinsky,
    author of the book, “Rules for Radicals,” and later by Frank Marshall Davis, with similar philosophies.Barak Obama followed the philosophies of these ‘role models’
    throughout his days as a Community Organizer for ACORN, using tactics that appeared to some as ‘shaking down’ businesses in exchange for not branding them ‘hate groups.’And apparently Obama is still following those radical rules today.
    Recall that Hillary Clinton did her college thesis on his writings and Barack Hussein Obama writes about him in his books. How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:
    There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state.The first is the most important.1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are
    providing everything for them to live.3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.4) GUN CONTROL — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor.
    This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.Now, think …Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States? Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Lenin’s original scheme for world conquest by communism, under Russian rule. Stalin described his converts as “Useful Idiots. “The Useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at an alarming rate in the U.S. “It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.”

  6. The greatest danger to American Freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution!!
    “Thomas Jefferson”
    A armed man is a citizen, a unarmed man is a slave !!
    “John Adams”

  7. You can take all the legal guns and you’ll still have the same problem but even worse! All your doing is disarming the good and allowing the bad to have control over a population. Your either going to be a bad guy with a gun or the government! and is there enough police to protect everyone including people that live in the wild or out side the suburbs? I’m pretty sure they don’t at this time. I know we don’t here in the U.S. I know we don’t! We can’t get enough police because Obama put targets on the backs of our police and we’ve had the highest murder rate of police in centuries and our ex president didn’t even apologize for that! Hell I’m sure he really doesn’t care? He never came out and said anything against it! He was to cozy with black lives matter who didn’t want white people marching with them and said something in line of frying bacon towards our police. Now we have the highest rate of police being killed since then! Now the Dem.’s are working to disarm the U.S. people and there ability to protect them selves. As long as I’m alive I’ll always oppose disarming America! I won’t give the liberals the rule as long as they want socialism or any level of socialism! The people are in charge not the Government and we need to keep it that way period!

  8. Nearly all i read in these coments, unfortunately, is true or at least probably true. This nation is closer to disaster then December 6, 1941. People, some of them, see it coming like a freight train running downhill fast and are screaming their hearts out on social media trying to wake people up. That’s OK but you’re yelling at the wrong people or at least you are giving out an incomplete message.
    I think, I hope, we might be better off if you told people, everyone everywhere, to contact the people that are thinking about passing these stupid bills and making stupid ideas into stupid laws! I’m talking about flooding your Senators, Representatives and President with emails, tweets, faxes, phone calls, telegrams, if you are close enough knock on their damn door, but get how you feel and think across to them over and over until they understand you. Inundate them with messages and calls until they have NO DOUBT about what WE THE PEOPLE want from OUR government. You don’t need to threaten them, that seldom works out well, just tell them you can read the BILL OF RIGHTS as well as anyone and you consider the U.S.Constitution sacred so you hope they understand you will defend it against ANY enemy, foreign or DOMESTIC, Republican, Democrat and especially Socialist. Tell everybody to contact those folks in D.C. every way and every time they can. It is easy to do, cheap, and might let them know we aren’t just votes, we are people and don’t want anyone f##king with us.


  10. The right to keep and bear (carry) arms shall not be infringed is in the constitution to ensure that we the people of the US can put up an ARMED resistance to tyranny.

    Contrary to the PROPAGANDA spouted by the anti Americans pushing to abolish the bill of rights

    1) It is not about SPORTING use
    2) It is not about Target Practice
    4) It is not about only protecting oneself inside one’s own house.

    The bill of rights as STATED by the 250+ founders of this nation simply OUTLINES what rights the government is PROHIBITED from infringing upon based on the PAST infringements by tyrants who systematically denied those rights to ensure they stay in power.

    In some cases even going so far as to ARREST entire families for nothing more than being related to someone charged with not convicted of treason confiscating their property regardless of conviction. In many cases FALSELY charged because some aristocrat wanted their land or property.

    If this type of confiscation without conviction sounds familiar then perhaps it is because it has began again in many states if you have enough cash to make a house payment on your person they steal it under their drug confiscation laws on the false claim that only someone involved in drug dealing would need such an amount (as if every legal sales place or auction accepts checks or credit cards) now they are expanding this to RED FLAG laws where they can steal in some cases millions of dollars in property (yes some antique collections are worth millions) until you PROVE the accusation against you is false.

    Here is a list of just some of what the British government at the time of the American revolution that attributed to its happening.

    1) Censored all forms of speech anyone complaining about taxes etc. were a “THREAT” to the king’s law.
    2) Dictated religion people in England who did not obey were punished as the STATE and CHURCH were one and the same.
    3) DISARMED the people telling them to rely on the KING’S soldiers for protection.
    4) Imposed new taxes or raised existing taxes to pay for frivolous things of no benefit to even the nation much less its citizens.

    There is a lot more those of us actually taught History instead of the propaganda that our schools now spout in its place learned about in school.

    The history of gun bans etc. has nothing to do with the “SAFETY” of civilians it has always been about OPPRESSION even the earliest gun restrictions in this nation were about US citizens who are MINORITIES being prohibited from having guns to ensure they could not defend themselves when certain groups (like the KKK created and backed by democrats) moved to oppress them and deny them their constitutional rights. In other nations like Rwanda the bans and confiscations preceded “MASS MURDER” of the politically targeted scapegoat’s blamed for the nations problems by politicians who’s greed was actually at fault most of the time.

    We have already seen DEMOCRATS openly calling for the MASS MURDER of millions for nothing more than supporting the PRESIDENT of the US over their globalist agenda as well as the MILLIONS of gun owners in this nation for nothing more than NOT committing the crimes they blame on the INANIMATE tools they own under constitutional protection.
