"Changed the Gun Control Debate"

Mark Kelly, Gabby Gifford’s husband, in testifying before Congress, says the shooting in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, where 20 children and 6 educators were killed, “changed the gun control debate.” In what way, Mark? Did it “change it” in such a way that the only measures liberals are taking about violate our Constitutional right to “keep and bear arms?” Or maybe to recognize that DISARMING the responsible, HONEST people is NOT the way to go? That recognize that CRIMINALS and crazies don't OBEY gun laws? Maybe to make laws that punish the CRIMINALS by making it a more severe sentence to use a gun in a crime (to keep armed criminals in prison longer) rather than make it harder for people like him and his wife to get guns with which to defend themselves against the ILLEGAL guns criminals and crazies never seem to have any trouble getting, no matter how many ignorant laws are passed by ignorant politicians supported by ignorant people? How about laws making it a more severe crime to SELL guns to people who only have criminal intent, and for people to BUY them to commit crimes? When are people like this (and the people who MAKE such laws) going to WAKE UP? When are they going to start APPROACHING “gun control” from the RIGHT (not necessarily "right wing") direction? He says the NRA needs to "wake up." actually, it's people like HIM who need to "wake up." (Huffington Post)

A "Turning Point" in Gun Control

Damn, I hope not! That would be STUPID. That’s what they are now saying of the mass shooting in Portland, Oregon. Like a LAW will stop people like this shooter from STEALING the gun he used to murder at least two people at that mall. As I predicted, they want to ban all “assault weapons,” using this as an opportunity to advance their agenda, and without knowing just what an “assault weapon” is. They seem to forget that people who want to do such things WILL get a gun if they have to buy it illegally or STEAL it. The “toothpaste is out of the tube.” Guns exist, and you’re not going to be able to UN-invent them. If they exist, people WILL be able to get one. Ban them and people will make their own. And if they can’t, they’ll use something else such as a sword, as did yet another (Unsuccessful) would-be mass murderer recently. (Just common sense)

Blame the Gun, Not the Man

 That seems to be the thing to do these days. When something happens, ANYTHING, involving a gun, people blame the GUN, not the man holding it. What they refuse to acknowledge is that a gun cannot hurt ANYBODY if there isn’t a PERSON holding it and pulling the trigger. I get so tired of hearing about situations like this, where a black thug argued his way into an open door to a CLOSED convenience store and attempted to INTIMIDATE the clerk. He got in his face, not an inch away. Then without warning he punched the clerk in the face while his buddies pulled their guns. The clerk, frightened for his life, pulled out his own gun and shot the thug, leaving him in critical condition. This should be the end of it, except for the jailing of the thugs involved. The cops, after watching the security tape, declared it a “self defense” action.

The thug’s father, however, wasn’t so charitable. Notwithstanding the fact that his boy was the aggressor, along with his armed friends, he (and others in the neighborhood) are demanding the clerk be charged and sent to prison for defending himself from several armed and obstreperous opponents. I guess he thinks his son was in the right in his unprovoked attack on this clerk, backed up by his armed friends. The clerk (so far) will NOT be charged, but he has lost his job and probably will have to move away to avoid retribution by other thugs in the neighborhood. The clerk is white while the thug is black, which makes it worse. I’m on the clerk’s side (black or white), which will cause people to call me a racist, no doubt. But I think the racism is on the black side for thinking ANYBODY who shoots a black man should be punished, even if he WAS the victim. Frankly, I’d have punched the thug as soon as he got in my face so closely. (Last Resistance)

HAMAS Kills Baby

Then blames it on us. And this is so typical of Islamic terrorists, it doesn’t even need to be said. But the United Nations has proven it (maybe they’re good for something, after all). The liberal American media dutifully reported it the way they were told to, even though the report was wrong. They called it “Israeli aggression,” even though it was “Palestinian aggression gone wrong.” HAMAS is well known to hide rockets in private homes where children live (from which they fire them into Israel private homes), as well as close to schools, according to the UN. It’s obvious they have no regard for human life. They use their own people as “human shields.” They fire THOUSANDS of rockets from these private homes, and if Israel responds, they put out announcements that Israel has fired on innocents, completely IGNORING their own firing of rockets (from within private homes) into Israeli private homes. This time, they were caught. But only a small number of media outlets have carried this story after telling the world that the ISRAELIS are “firing into private homes.” They think we’ll keep buying this BS forever. That shows their IGNORANCE. (The Blaze)

Infected By Stupid

Colorado Governor Hickenlooper has always struck me as an intelligent man. Especially when, after the Aurora theater killings, he “famously” said. “No amount of anti-gun laws would have prevented that shooting.” When I heard that, I actually thought he was not the usual brand of incompetent politician and that he maybe realized what I’ve been preaching for years, that CRIMINALS, who don’t obey laws, will NOT obey a law that says he can’t be armed. But then stupid intervened, and he began acting like your usual ignorant politician, blaming the gun and signaling that he will sign some of the stupidest, and most difficult to enforce gun legislation that ever came down the pike. I have now lost all confidence in this typical Democrat, who, up to now gave a good imitation of an intelligent man. Her doesn’t even realize it, but this action will probably send him back to making beer while the Republicans will take over in currently Democrat-controlled Colorado. (
