Second Amendment Rant


Hi and welcome to the world according to Larry today’s video is about well Semi-automatic rifles some want to call them strong rifles. I Want to call them semi-automatic rifles because to me that’s what they are This video is for educational purposes Let’s talk about assault rifles and the assault weapon ban, the clinton ban is something like to call it Here is a semi-automatic rifle is an assault weapon is an assault rifle The answer is no it is neither. First of all, technically the definition of them sought rifle There’s one that has the capability of firing full auto. This looks menacing at all, but can a fire full auto No, it can’t. This is a semi-auto rifle What’s the difference full auto means one trigger pull and will continue to cycle fire cartridges until the trigger is released semi-auto means one trigger One trigger pull equals one round fire. So let me demonstrate first we’re gonna remove the magazine you Don’t want anything ugly happening You see right there that is the striker That’s what hits the firing pin and causes it to discharge alright You don’t see it anymore, right? It’s gone and when I pull this trigger You’re gonna see it we’ll see that right now full auto this will cycle back and You’ll see that hammer there again that striker there again but you don’t I Have to release the trigger Here click and then I have to pull it again That semi-auto and if someone tells you that the general public has access to full auto weapons and that is why we need to Ban semi-automatic weapons. They’re either grossly under educated in a topic they strongly feel about or they flat-out lie – some say Semantics. Yeah semantics. Let’s get into semantics The word weapon has a specific meaning people are murdered with all sorts of things rope plastic bags hammers rocks Automobiles kitchen knives scissors and poisons and that is what they are called Until they are used to harm someone and then they become a weapon during what the assault Now what some people can’t comprehend is that the semi-auto rifle like the other inanimate objects is just another inanimate object until is used by a human on a human at which point the term assault weapon our murder weapon a self-defense weapon becomes appropriate those who insist on calling an ar-15 and they are does not stand for assault rifle by the way can’t comprehend but these Semi-automatic rifles have any other purpose I was a competition target shooter in high school and college Is so cool and challenging to send it and hit the target this is a 50 foot indoor target let me show what fifty feet is This is what you are aiming at right there it’s a period you are aiming at a period so This is what a 50 foot target looks like from zero feet one foot Actually Technically this is two feet away Let’s see remember Aiming for a period right there Let’s see what fifty feet looks like Fifty Doesn’t seem so easy from here to hit a period at this distance, but that’s what target shooting is It is a sport you want to hit the period ten out of ten times Anything else is amiss and you’ll lose points by how much you miss sort of the inverse of golf Now this is an indoor target and you have to slowly squeeze the trigger until it breaks without flinching you’re adding in Incremental increases of pressure the trigger while timing it in between breathing you’re happy and the sway of your body When you are outdoors, you have those to contend with but now the targets are 50 100 200 or a thousand meters away It’s no longer a period that you’re aiming at but it is scaled up So it could be the size of a saucer or a plate. Oh that’s easier No while dealing with the dance of your breathing heartbeat and the sway of your body and trigger control You have to compensate for the wind blowing of sideways the Mirage caused by the heat making the target look a little higher Than it really is and finally gravity pulling the bullet down Did I mention this is all timed? The shooting sports don’t get a lot of attention because quite honestly they’re boring to watch Even the Olympics they don’t get airtime Biathlon may be skiing and shooting might get some air time, but it’s the skiing But shootings get a lot of attention. I got run over by a car while in a crosswalk I was broken up seven bones busted didn’t make the news every day pedestrians are hit and drunk drivers kill people The thing is we blame the drivers of the cars For this we don’t blame the cars because we know the car is an inanimate object And sad to say but people intentionally use vehicles to kill people as well But we know we will never see just everybody giving up their vehicles and only professional drivers being our mode of transportation I know I know there’ll be squawk about Body count Oh kay Let’s talk body count. How many assault weapon deaths are there a year? And how many? vehicle related deaths and injuries occur a year or even a day according to the National Safety Council in 2017 more than 40,000 deaths were caused by Motor Vehicles. No, seriously. This is an average of 109 a day. Where is the outrage? Now, Let’s talk about this rifle right here. This gun is what is called a pre banned gun. This is a Ruger mini-14 It fires a two two three, four, five five six the same round as the ar-15 m16 and a myriad of other semi-auto rifles These three right here it has a 30 round magazine a flash suppressor a Pistol grip a folding stock and a bayonet lug with a bayonet on it. This is the poster boy of the Clinton ban Inanimate object this is the world according doofus, but then again he did call me close to boy This is an ar-15 For my Camaro people out there. This is a fourth gen a are this does not have a bayonet lug But does have a flash suppressor pressure switch flashlight Green laser that is dead-on prone line stainless steel barrel bag pulled pop-up sights eo-tech holographic tactical site and the eo-tech magnifier, and yes It has a retractable stock pistol grip detachable magazines and fires the two to three as well This is after all post banned gun and anything goes Hey Dude, it’s nice to get out into the Sun, isn’t it? Hey Olli sure is so much time being kept in the dark What do you think of this clown calling us in animate pay no attention to him many. He’s just an opinionated bag of water Now this beauty this gun is a clinton ban Era gun, that is right you could purchase us during the ban This is a Colt heavy barrel ar-15. It’s it is designed for target shooting. This thing is a bear It’s real heavy. It does not have a flash suppressor It does not have a bayonet lug and it does not have a retractable stock during the band They could only have two of five things. This has a pistol grip and does have a detachable magazine The 37-millimeter launcher was not allowed at the time. Yeah, 37 millimeter launcher is not a destructive device It actually fires flares and fireworks This came with a 5 round magazine So really what was the band? All about aesthetics was about how the guns looked people say. Let’s have a conversation Well, let less but I want to talk to someone who knows what they’re talking about Not someone who thinks that once the magazine is empty that is discarded like a used condom the statement shows a complete lack of knowledge of a subject then you are allegedly passionate about You say let’s have a conversation and then use the term common sense Whether it’s the right or the left that uses this term It means I’m unwilling to hear what you have to say ie there is no conversation The terms the gun lobby and the NRA are thrown around like they are inanimate objects like the guns themselves But the words gun lobby and NRA our collective terms for millions and millions and millions of law-abiding gun owners It’s not just the gun manufacturers so again You’re not demonstrating that you truly want to have a conversation the first through the 10th amendments also known as the Bill of Rights We’re all submitted for ratification on September 25th 1789 a year after the Constitution was ratified the First Amendment prohibits Congress to pass any law that would impinge the freedom of religion speech the press or Assembly the second amendments the right to keep and bear Arms, the third amendment the government can’t put soldiers in your house The fourth amendment is about search and seizures search warrants and probable cause the Fifth Amendment self-incrimination Double jeopardy due process an eminent domain. I plead the fifth Sixth amendment is about a fair and speedy trial You can front your accuser and you know the right to counsel Seventh amendment is trial by jury Eighth amendment is regarding bail and cruel and unusual punishment the ninth amendment is Confusing but protects implied rights not specifically called out already and the Tenth Amendment is federalism limiting The federal government’s reach as designated by the states now I’m not a Supreme Court judge or even a lawyer but this is the world according to Larry This is so much emotion over the Second Amendment People want to discuss it as if it’s not part of a bigger picture the Bill of Rights What was and is a package deal? But let’s look at the Bill of Rights without the second amendment in it as some people would like to do What is the common theme in each and every other amendment? Remember the context and when it was written, they just fought and won their independence from an intrusive tyrannical government Whatever your stances on the Second Amendment you can see that the other nine are about protecting the Individual the people in we the people from an overreaching government Now let’s reinsert the second of meant was not about hunting or keeping a double-barrel shotgun behind your door in case a Burglar came and you can shoot it off your balcony. It was part of a package deal It was considered necessary to the security of a free State not nation It’s about the possible need to enforce the other nine amendments Some say that this is to be changed because they didn’t know what firearms would evolve to that is irrelevant The Constitution and the Bill of Rights were crafted by brilliant people who understand that human nature does not change That people in power want to stay in power and they want more and more power. Just look at the news There’s a dynasty in North Korea. Look at Syria. Oh, but that could never happen here really think again It’s all it’s already happening So we always had the lower class the middle class in the upper class But now there’s a ruling class these political family dynasties the Clintons the bushes the Kennedys the Browns The Como’s the sununu’s amongst others those in power want to stay in power think about who is the most vocal about disarming we the people there’s those same people who want to expand the scope of government and Consequently their power and they try to buy your votes with promises of freebies and taking from some and giving it to others Are you certain where they will draw the line to whom it’s okay to take from? Are you certain you will never be on the wrong side of that line We have some of America’s most powerful institutions used by individuals against individuals That is not supposed to happen. Well, we’ll go. What would be next. What would be the next amendment to go? Strategically the next step would be to silence the critics Again, look around. It’s already happening. The First Amendment will follow the Second Amendment If you don’t believe in a certain manner your voice can be silenced currently that is not being done Actively by the government, but by organizations and groups religious symbols are coming down everywhere next thing, you know The government will be listening to your phone calls Kicking in your door in the middle of the night and hauling you away throw you in jail and having you sit there Well beat while a big bloated bureaucratic bosses try to figure out what law they can actually accuse you of breaking Your case will be decided in the middle of the night by a magistrate without you Even there ultimately soldiers will be placed in your home to make sure that the rest of your family complies Sounds like some other countries, doesn’t it? both past and present She’s a beauty oh my God, look at that If she comes be cool be cool. How do I look what what do you mean? I’m gonna show her What a real magazine feels like what? Make sure your Safety’s on yeah, yeah Whatever talk to the pistol grip Hi, this is the world according to Larry, I’d like to introduce myself you can call me ollie and this is my friend Minnie Hi, I have seen you guys around. I don’t think we’ve ever been to the range together You can call me h-bar you are a beauty. Oh Thank you. I have to ask you are a little front end heavy are you all factory or is some of that aftermarket Ollie, I told you you can’t talk to girls like that anymore Wait, I’m confused I can’t compliment you anymore. You like being told you are attractive, but don’t you want to know how I am sorry for being insensitive? According to this joker. I’m an Inanimate object and can do no wrong. It is his fault Of course. I want to be told I’m attractive. I don’t know Maybe I just want to thank every part of me is just perfect and some parts are not more appealing than others Okay apology accepted it is the gun owners fault. What about you? Are you all factory? You look a little racy I’m not factory at all I’m completely custom-made pressure switch activated laser and light on a foregrip and pistol grip how Tactical stainless steel fluted barrel and bolt and bolt carrier Oh No We’re past the point of no return. Is that a compartment to store batteries for your optics? Why? Yes? Yes it is As if that matters look at you with three different sighting options What was that I know mag dumped when I hear it, huh? What magazine and magazine well What’s going on here oh my god, what have we done? You guys I Told you to use your safety. I hate these mass murders as much as anybody else well, what happens is the press wants to blame the killer’s neighbor for not seeing something and Saying something yet in recent history people have seen something and have said something but law enforcement Ie the government failed to act or fail to go in I have nothing against law enforcement officers But the system the system filled us when there was something in place The press wants to blame me for being a gun advocate And of course the press blames the gun there have been several mass murders where vehicles were used to mow down pedestrians again We don’t blame the vehicles Let’s not lose sight of the fact that murder is illegal always has and always will be it is the original law You look well Exotic as ever but what gives not bad I don’t know seems like I can feed more these days young white males become Desensitized to violence by the video games they play I’ve played so many hours of first-person shooting games online But let me explain another thing to you in the world according to Larry I will say that like not understanding that a spent Magazine is not a used condom You can’t blame video games without understanding video games and you can’t blame video games without blaming The media just as much if not more as video games in these first-person shooting games You run around a map trying to shoot your opponents before they shoot you When you first start out as in a particular game or map it is a game It can be a super frustrating and many people get frustrated and just quit why the veterans of the game know where the vantage points are the choke points have better weapons and better camouflage But if you stick it out You are rewarded you accumulate points that equate to a rank and with different ranks come better weapons and better and with better Weapons you may now have an advantage on someone It also will give you other tactical advantages like being able to hear footsteps Or a bulletproof vest more ammunition or faster reload if you stick with it You can work your way up from private to five-star general this might require 60 different promotions mind you now This is a social game and in a world where social status is so important this matters Then you have the option to prestige, which is recently a rank all the way back to private But you get to keep something to give you an advantage over another private There is a distinction to your player as well and everybody knows you aren’t really a level one, but actually level 61 The prestige process can happen 10 or 20 times and your stats are available for all to see How many games you have played how many players you have killed how many times you’ve been killed and your k/d ratio? the kill to death ratio Basically, it equates to the average number of kills you get per single life it is if it is below 1.0 or you’re very poor And basically a walking target the higher the number above 1.0 the better you are and then there are the cheaters and snipers This is the real measure of prowess This is the yardstick and players will judge other players on it So as they are running around playing tag, which is essentially what it is. Can I see you before you see me? Maybe you get desensitized to the violence But the underlying goal is to rank up and to rank up by body count cyber bullying. What is that? I know what it is But when I was a kid bullies beat you up literally doesn’t cyber bullying go away when you shut the app off But no I’m told it doesn’t because even if you shut it off the 400 other friends have already seen the insult Have you been on Twitter? It is brutal I’ve seen tweet storms where people are attacking people for the low number of tweets They have or the low number of followers They have social media and social status has evolved and outpaced our mental evolution the older generations did not grow up with instant news instant gratification and the pressure to rank up but these rifles have been around since the early 60s Mass shootings with semi-automatic rifles did not occur what has changed what has changed these rifles Um Don’t say anything especially to oli Why? You won’t find me attractive anymore quite contrary you really think so Definitely these rifles haven’t they had all the offensive and nasty features in the sixties that they have today They don’t fire any differently. Now whenever one of these horrific events occurs, the media makes the killer an instant celebrity I know we are insatiable for details and the whys and the how’s and whose fault it is but every single time The media reports the KD ratio without even knowing it and that’s why I’m doing this video This was the largest mass shooting since blah or only the blah blah massacre. I had a higher body count than this event They talk about the troubled past and the warning signs that were overlooked the media basically tells the story the killer probably Wanted to tell for themselves, but no one listened Meanwhile budding mass murderers are watching and learning what worked and what? Didn’t and what conveyed sympathy for the killer and what the KD ratio ultimately was and what KD ratio has to be beaten Media sets the goal for the next one I don’t want to stifle free speech but I suspect that if we stop saying the name of the killer Showing their face and making them famous and reporting the body count in comparison to other body counts The frequences of these may go down spend more time reporting on the survivors victims and the brave first responders Really glamorize them. How is their life? What made them tick? What makes them tick? We do make a big deal about first responders, but make it even bigger like really big we call them heroes But the word has been Overused and has lost its meaning when a police officer a civilian puts themselves in the line of fire to stop what is happening They should really be celebrated They should be on every TV talk show that exists GoFundMe page is put up for them for the hero just so we can show them our appreciation put them on currency Make the heroes people who get the Attention the people people want to be the people even the killer’s want to be keep the identity of the killer cloaked Don’t say their names don’t report on their lives. Don’t show their face. Don’t say how many rounds were How many magazines they have how many guns or what kind of guns? I admit it I want to know the answers to these when it occurs, but I would be okay If it became a national consensus to decelebrity The Killers the world according to Larry Definition decelebrity is a verb to remove to prevent any impending fame from an individual I’m going to make a prediction If we don’t start to decelebrity the killer’s not only will you not see a decrease in mass shootings But we will see more killers surrender instead of killing themselves So they can revel in their newfound fame so they can tell their stories and so they can see how much they are Trending how many people remember who Charles Manson was how many remember the names of his victims? This is what a conversation sounds out sounds like by the way have you seen Hbar lately? No, why, she’s sporting a 40 round, what no way Little Miss five round Hardened the soft targets these deranged people are going for body count That is why they typically go to schools. These rifles are not small Let’s face it if there are no guns allowed in a school and there are no metal detectors to assure it and there are no individuals in place whose job it is to actively be Actively looking for someone with a duffel bag or a trenchcoat Entering the school it will continue to happen You’re basically lying on the honor system in regards to someone who is willing to violate the original law. They probably are not concerned about Consequences of possessing a gun in a gun-free zone or using Teflon bullets or the penalty for using us area looking gun It didn’t take too many vehicle attacks for us to realize we have to park dump trucks around Times Square on New Year’s Eve or to put concrete pylons on sidewalks But what have we done to protect the soft targets like schools? If one of these rifles was taken away from me a law-abiding citizen It would not stop a single school shooting because in my possession this would never be used against a human Being unless he was in my house threatening bodily harm to me or my family I am changing and I don’t know what is going on well Oh Let’s have a look here well Hbar I have some news for you where you live is going to get more crowded. I don’t understand there’s no polite way to say thi You have a gun in the oven. What? That can’t be I have to talk to Oly It really is too late Banning semi-automatic rifles would only affect law-abiding citizens those who plan on mass carnage will not turn in their firearms Now with the advent of 3d printers the lower receivers and magazines can be manufactured. This is real scary thing This is a real scary thing. If one person was able to make a program to 3d print a lower receiver. That means anybody can Are we going to ban 3d printers? I want to know are we gonna ban 3d printers will we register 3d printers with the federal government and require an audit trail of What was printed to be turned in every year and a ban will create an underground market guns will be stolen and guns will be Stolen hi h-bar are you doing have you changed something? You and me There’s one on the way that is going to look like us. Oh Wow. Wow Wow, this is great news it is Really? I thought you would be mad. How could I be mad? That’s the guns might make it through metal detectives but metal bullets don’t Passing more laws does not stop lawbreakers You say you want to have a conversation? And the same breath suck all the air out of the room by then throwing in common sense. Well actually possessing none harden the targets I Know there are people who are going to hate me for my rant and there will be people who think the skit is in poor taste and How could I? Is not intended to hurt anybody’s feelings But there is at least two sides to every story and I know there will also be many people who feel I am a cheerleader and a funny one at that this video is for those who are in the middle and just hear the yelling and Whoever yells a lot is wins the argument All right time to go to the range Magazine What’s going on here mmm something’s happening here That is how these rifles keep multiplying in my safe How long do you think his barrel will be? do you think he might be in 300 blackout? Oh yeah will be different Yeah, but it would be interesting Please I don’t want to see another mass shooting But you have to do the right thing not Not the emotional thing what if you had a mouse problem in your house? How would you handle it? You could put traps down maybe poison, but mice will keep coming back. The problem is not the mouse the problem is the food and the shelter they are getting Button up the access points and protect the food and the mice are no longer an issue That is common sense. You’ve been experiencing the world according to Larry and I’m Larry and this is the world I live in I hope you enjoyed today’s video If you did, please like it share it I would love to hear your comments and I would appreciate if you subscribe and until then. I’m in my world
