Where have we seen THAT salute before? And notice that’s not the hand he eats with. (The Office of the “Supreme Leader”)
by: David Codrea
“Iranian Ayatollah Ali Khamenei slammed President Trump and Congress on social media Sunday for not daring to stand up to the gun lobby and introduce a nationwide ban on all firearms,” the Washington Examiner, among others, reports. “No one dares apply the clear solution to the promotion of guns and homicide in America. What’s the solution? It’s to make guns illegal.”
There’s a reason why “no one dares.” It’s because no one can, and if they tried they’d find there are personal repercussions for trying. It’s why domestic enemies do their subversion incrementally, advancing a little bit at a time down a “slippery slope” they used to ridicule but now at least some of their addled and judgment impaired “leaders” admit to.
But Iran’s “supreme leader” knows that, which is why the Islamic Republic maintains tight controls on “civilian” guns, with their ownership not guaranteed by law and allowances regulated by the Islamic Consultative Assembly. And while many of their edicts such as licensing and registration mirror the wish list being pushed by our “progressive” totalitarian lobby, domestic gun-grabbers are silent on just who Khameni and his cult followers use their monopoly of violence to suppress, persecute and kill:
“Death sentences in Iran are, in theory, legal for many different crimes, such as armed robbery, treason, espionage, murder, certain military offenses, drug trafficking, rape, pedophilia, sodomy, sexual misconduct, incestuous relations, fornication, homosexuality, prostitution, plotting to overthrow the Islamic regime, political dissidence, sabotage, apostasy, blasphemy, adultery, producing and publishing pornography, burglary, recidivist consumption of alcohol, recidivist theft, rebellion, some economic crimes, kidnapping, terrorism and few others.”
We’d probably lose half our “commonsense gun safety law advocates” if we did that here. And they wouldn’t much care for the way they’d be forcibly checked out: Hanging, firing squad, stoning and falling from heights.
Iran has one other “gun law” that can only be enforced by those who enjoy unchallengeable power:
“Upon learning of his son’s death, the elder Mr. Alipour was told the family had to pay an equivalent of $3,000 as a ‘bullet fee’—a fee for the bullet used by security forces—before taking the body back, relatives said.”
And talk about “for the children”—to their credit, at least the Iranians hang theirs, instead of mixing “kids and guns.” Those are reserved for deployment as child soldiers.
As long as Ayatollah Khameini is calling for gun laws in our country, turnabout seems fair play and there’s no logical or moral reason why I can’t do the same for his: I call on the people of Iran to ignore totalitarian citizen disarmament edicts and overthrow your evil, bloody-handed oppressors.
There is one gun law I do recommend keeping: Charge their (surviving) families for the bullets.
In the mean time, you’ll note no one whom the regime can touch dares post a reply telling this fanatical authoritarian son of dogs to boro be jahanam (look it up). They don’t recognize a right to free speech over there either, because no one is in a position to make them.
