I guess it might as well be, I think its original purpose has run its course. by Jerry Whorebach 09/14/2019, 2:46pm PDT


This Angry Joe tweet has Resetera in a tizzy. It should be possible to endorse gun control without being a fucking idiot, and part of not being a fucking idiot is acknowledging that guns have legitimate utility. If you're a farmer, unless you want your crops flooded you're going to have to do something about the beavers damming up your drainage. And beaver dams aren't the flimsy piles of twigs you're imagining; you can't tear a beaver dam apart with tools, you have to blow it up with dynamite. Then like in a cartoon, the industrious beavers will work all night, and the next morning the dam will be back even sturdier than before. The only practical, economical solution is to shoot the beavers before they have a chance to multiply out of control, and about the most humane way to do that is with a high-velocity .223-calibre rifle.

I once watched a farmer try to kill a beaver with a polite, low-velocity bolt-action .22. The beaver took a round or two and got away, to die slowly and alone in some dark wet hole. Or maybe live to dam another day, with nothing but a badass scar to show for it, who knows. Obviously there's no legitimate use for a handgun besides murder, but rifles are like commercial trucks, and the conversation around licensing them needs be similar.

Fun fact: the Ruger on the bottom of Joe's picture is the same rifle used in the '89 Montreal Polytechnique massacre, when a lone gunman killed 14 female students and wounded as many more before shooting himself. It's also a good beaver gun.
