Socialism ala Arky

It may come as no surprise that I enjoy shooting. The noise does not bother me. I have never fired a weapon with enough recoil to turn me away from shooting it. I was not a sniper and have not been a serious competitive shooter. I am adequate with both pistols and long guns though. I enjoy shooting small caliber pistols and large caliber rifles and big bore shotguns and everything in between them.

So what would socialism look like if I ran the circus?

“Every American will be able to deduct the first $10,000 spent on firearms and ammunition from his taxes.” – Arky’s tax plan

“I have a range map
that covers every American. Any American can shoot at any range and cannot be refused for having a lousy rifle.” – Arky discussing the National Marksmanship Plan

“My opponent is out of touch with American riflemen. If he would spend more time on the range and less time in Congress (if that is even possible), he might just learn a thing or two about the daily struggles of everyday shooters.” - Arky on the stump

“…And it’s not surprising they cannot shoot, they cling to the Brady Campaign or Handgun Control, Inc. or hostility toward people who know how to use firearms or anti-shooter sentiment or anti-self-defense sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” – Arky probably speaking in Pennsylvania

“Arky the Hun will require you to shoot. He is going to demand that you shed your scopes. That you put up your iron sites. That you come out of your shooters bench, that you move into an off-hand position. That you push yourselves to aim straighter. And that you meet, close with, and destroy the enemy. Arky will never allow you to waste ammunition, unaimed, untargeted.” – Arky’s wife

Don't know if I'd go quite that far, but I do think I'd put a bounty on all those gangbangers that want to steal, rob, beat up, rape, and terrorize innocents. How about declaring a season on MS13 gangers.

Farmers Branch, Texas has more or less done just that.

I couldn't support socialism in any form or fasion but if I were, it would look something like that.
