Poll asks retards: “describe an assault weapon”

Reason/Rupe conducted a phone survey (of mostly retarded people) asking an open-ended question, “In just a few words, how would you describe an assault weapon?”

The list of uninformed opinions they posted shows how incredibly stupid some people are in this country when it comes to limiting the rights of others. In other words, they’ve been successfully brainwashed:

[...] A GUN

I THINK ANY WEAPON THAT CARRY MORE THEN 4 OR 5 BULLET IN A WEAPON

SOMETHING THAT IS QUICK FIRE AND HAS MORE THEN SIX ROUNDS IN IT.

SEMI AUTOMATIC WEAPON CLIPS RAPID FIRE. DESIGNED FOR OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE.

ANYTHING CAN BE AN ASSAULT WEAPON LIKE KNIFE FRYING PAN HAMMER BOARD.

A WEAPON THAT SHOTS VERY FAST THAT HAS A MAGAZINE THAT HOLDS A LOT AMMUNITION AT ON TIME

A WEAPON DESIGNED FOR MASS KILLING

HIGH REPETITION LARGE CAPACITY MAGAZINE AND SIZE OF AMMUNITION

ANYTHING THAT SHOOTS CONSECUTIVELY

PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS GUNS, I DON’T KNOW THAT MUCH ABOUT GUNS BUT THEY SEEM KIND OF WICKED [...]

That’s just a small sampling, and shows that at least one person out there now thinks a hammer is an assault weapon. Fuck yeah, mission accomplished.

At this point, even sheriffs and police — the very folks who would supposedly be tasked with enforcing “assault weapon” bans — are starting to look at each other and shake their heads in disbelief.

Wherein reason commenters sing our (dead) praises

Reason.com has a piece on which writers turned people on to freedom.

However, what caught my eye was some traffic coming from a link the comments, where rumors of HoT’s death are being bandied about.

Firstly: thank you. Hammer of Truth never dies, but it was comatose.

Secondly: we’re supposed to be dead and you bastards never even sent flowers? Am disappoint.

Who wants Libertarian drama in 2012? All of us!

Easter and Passover weekend got hella interesting over in the libertarian internet drama sphere at IPR (Independent Political Report, political relationship status: it’s complicated).

IPR picked up on a recording of Wayne Allyn Root, infrequent subject of Hammer of Truth bashings and guy who holds a lot of titles in the LP political machinery, giving Mitt Romney more of that “inevitability” propaganda that we’ve all heard about a million times before:

I think the important thing now is to make sure Obama is not elected,and that means in my mind, I would love for a libertarian like Gary Johnson the two term governor of New Mexico would actually get elected President, but I think we all know that’s not going to happen so therefore it’s got to be Romney there is no choice.

That’s the quote that started this whole libertarian brouhaha. see more…
