guns, uspol, rant 

Armed queers bash back. I wish that didn’t have to be the case. I wish guns didn’t exist. I want the mass shootings to stop. But we have to deal the hand we’re given and this is where we are now. Debate how dystopian that is all you want, but I’m not giving up my own weapons when on-the-ballot conservatives are calling for me and all other LGBTQ+ and anybody who supports us to be executed. And demanding I do anyway is irresponsible at best.

You could ban guns tomorrow and it wouldn’t stop mass shootings. It would just make sure that the next Buffalo wouldn’t have a single person capable of defending themselves when the neo nazi with an illegal AR walks in. It would just make sure that the next Portland protest would end only when the shooter ran out of his illegally hoarded ammo and magazines instead of when the armed protestor returned fire before anybody else got hurt.

The fact of the matter is that we live in a society that will criminalize marginalized people at the drop of the hat while giving every benefit of the doubt and outright unofficial immunity to the people who want to murder us. Any form of gun control or restrictions/laws that doesn’t come at the end of system social change will inherently ONLY affect people trying to defend themselves against fascists.

Red flag laws! Great. Just great. Now you’ve made it so the cops can decide, at any point, to take away the guns of a trans woman. Or a black man. Or an ex wife who is being threatened with death by her abusive ex cop husband who is the one who submitted the red flag report in the first place. Meanwhile “wow that cishet white guy who murdered 50 children was such a nice and caring neo nazi and we never would have guessed he’d be capable of this” was untouchable.

Can high capacity magazines! No semi auto rifles! Require specialized tools to remove magazines to prevent speedy reloading! So now you’ve gutted adequate self defense for legal carriers against people who can easily just make illegal mods to their firearms or 3D print un-restricted receivers and magazines because wow, people who have decided to commit homicide against marginalized people already have decided they don’t care about the law of consequences of breaking it.

You put a massive tax on ammunition or guns to make it prohibitively expensive to acquire one, okay so now only poor people, which makes up a significant number of marginalized communities, aren’t allowed to have guns, while again, the people who state publicly they want marginalized people dead in the street continue to be able to buy guns with impunity.

So you simply restrict the sale of new guns but leave the literal hundreds of millions of guns already here alone. Okay, now you’ve made it impossible for any more marginalized people to ram themselves effectively against a demographic who publicly calls for their deaths while also publicly brags about having the contents of a small armory in their closet.

You can’t ban all guns tomorrow without making a fuck ton of innocent people felons. And do you really think that non-white people, LGBTQ+ people, and other marginalized groups will be given the benefit of the doubt that they’re destroying or turning in their guns just like cishet white conservative men will? It will be u to the discretion of cops to decide who to charge with felony possession and who to believe is just turning in their now-illegal weapons.

There seems to be a lot of misconceptions about guns in the US and it genuinely pisses me off that I have to see takes from otherwise leftist people that are emotionally charged to the point of being do-nothing cishet white upper class liberal Pearl clutching. The unfortunate fact of the matter is that guns are entrenched heavily in American society. You can debate how good that is all day, but the reality is they are, and there isn’t much you can do about it.

Insurance needed me to file a police report for my claim so I’ll have to deal with cops at some point, ugh.

But, we got them on security cameras and our neighbors also have much nicer cameras from another angle, and they drive fancy suped up sports cars that are pretty distinctive, so they’ll probably eat shit for this.
