By now we have so many exhibits disproving the claims that “No one’s talking about repealing the Second Amendment” and “No one’s talking about taking away your guns” that it’s beyond a doubt: yes, there are people who want to take away your guns, and they’re not being quiet about it.
Take, for example, “experimental media darling” Laura Shippen, who was reacting to the school shooting at Sante Fe High School in Texas Friday morning.
Let me be crystal clear: I 100% want to take away your guns. Fuck your second amendment. Until children stop getting slaughtered in school, absolutely fuck it. Take them all away.

This but there’s no “until” for me. Just take em away. https://t.co/ibGcUtYoW1

Since the gun grabbers have yet to get around to “taking them all away,” can we at least be glad the school police officer who confronted the shooter was armed as well?

But all they want is “common sense gun control,” which means …?
“No one is saying we want to take away your guns.” https://t.co/acR83mxkML

This is the only logical conclusion to the pro gun control argument. It is important to understand exactly how radical people like this are. https://t.co/1lvEP7LmjX

During conversations about gun control, its advocates inevitably invoke the tired line: “look, no one wants to take your guns away.” Don’t fall for this lame gaslighting. https://t.co/4nNJdo1zB2

You, a reactionary: Ban all guns!
Me, a pragmatist: Let’s talk private gun sale loophole, Extreme Risk Protection Orders, gun insurance, and school protection mechanisms rather than something that violates the Constitution. https://t.co/yXqlhhtDI7

Yes, we'll simple go abolish a constitutional right that's been around for two hundred plus years, is written into the DNA of our country, and faithfully upheld by many law-abiding citizens. No problem. What other rights would you like us to infringe upon? https://t.co/ItzZ3Az4xp
— H Diamond (@4one2nd) May 19, 2018
Apologies for the vile language (but hey that is the state of the left in today’s political landscape), but it is always interesting when people on the left let their true colors show. They see the constitution and rights as little more than obstacles to their plans https://t.co/ki6dGBYheO

Let me be crystal clear: I 100% want to take away your phones. F*** your first amendment. Until children stop dying due to texting and driving, absolutely f*** it. Take them all away.
That's what you sound like. https://t.co/jwz5vovRbU
— Alana Mastrangelo (@ARmastrangelo) May 19, 2018
How about no.
You won't see change by politicizing the issue that schools are unsafe. It's not about guns, it's about safety. There needs to be more SROs and security. Taking the right to defend oneself from millions of people will not stop criminals.

do you really think that would solve the school violence issue? if some crazy kid REALLY wanted to kill his classmates, he'd find a way. he'd make a bomb, he'd run em down in his car or something. banning guns is a very naive and totalitarian solution. hell no https://t.co/KaMWQ3yNCX

You run a “science-fiction podcast,” so let me bring you back to reality.
The Second Ammendment is integral in preserving our most basic freedoms and liberties. It allows the populace to resist government tyranny.
Stop using the death of children to push your political agenda. https://t.co/8qA2cFnFuG

Taking away guns from law abiding citizens who wish to defend themselves and their families is not the answer.
There are 300 million guns in the US. If mandatory gun confiscation was implemented, the worst elements will remain armed and dangerous. https://t.co/lP6oiJ8W5o
— АmericanOren (@OrenBalaban) May 19, 2018
And… How will you take guns away?
Oh that's right, by using guns and the government as a cudgel to enforce your will, proving why Americans have guns in the first place.

And how do you propose to accomplish this mass seizure of firearms? Perhaps…with guns? https://t.co/lo4qChhEa8

Good luck trying to seize guns from law-abiding people. That won’t work, and these tragedies won’t be stopped by such confiscation.
Rhetoric like this will not accomplish necessary reforms. https://t.co/pUESb1J565
