More Stupid Things That Gun Nuts Do

Ladies and gentlemen, perhaps the stupidest thing that gun nuts do—that would be aside from all the phenomenally stupid things that leave thousands and thousands of Americans dead every year from murder by gun, suicide by gun, accidental shooting by gun—is believing that their numbers are anything beyond a small, small fraction of the nation’s population.

Take, for instance, last weekend, when two gun nuts shot down three people in Las Vegas…

Hey! Hey! Hey! I see what you’re doing, Cope. You’re trying to make all of us Second Amendment patriots out to be like them killers. Ya’ know, if there’d been more of us around with our guns, they wouldn’ta gotten away with that.

Ah, I see the representative of the NRA has joined us. And already, it seems we need to remind him that two of the victims were policemen. Armed policemen. Yet the gun nuts… or should I call them “Second Amendment patriots?”… killed them precisely because they were policemen. Policemen whose duties would naturally include protecting citizens from the likes of these “Second Amendment patriots.”

1. I love watching controllers undermine their cause.

If I was a cynic I would wonder if the NRA ghost wrote this.

2. Whoa! Talking to themselves, not a good sign

 

I notice a lot of that in GD too. People who make up long, complex, imaginary stories about what the NRA said then post it as if it actually happened.

Of course they never seem to be able to link to any actual NRA posts or statements that might give their ranting some credibility, even though the web site is public access.

I guess newspaper columnists have a lot of imaginary friends too, just like gun control fans. Just like some posters who post and run.

4. You know, I met a guy once that would just scream 'DOG FUCKERS' over and over.

Interesting fellow. Good to see he's got a blog now.

7. Bemusement is not protestation

We read guys like this inadvertently helping the NRA and we have to laugh. Who could possibly think it was rational or effective communications?

6. I can actually agree

Gun nuts are a small, small fraction of the nation's population. Gun owners OTH are a rather significant fraction of the nation's population.

Gun control proponents would have more success if they didn't lump the latter with the former so often.

8. I reloaded my first rounds ever today.

We'll be headed out to the range shortly for some family plinking action. Hopefully no cops will show up. Of course we're going to the same range all the local LEO's train at so it's really likely a group will show up. I'll just bet no one gets killed on this family adventure.

9. Well, there is three minutes I am not going to get back.

Hell, many of the anti-gunners here can write better comic relief than that.

11. I actually find myself agreeing with what seems to be the main

 

point of this thread.

Gun nuts are in fact, a small, small fraction of the nation’s population.

12. Interesting.

 

Ummm... you had a lot of incidents to pick from to try to make your point, is there a reason you chose one where the third victim (the one you don't mention at all) was a law abiding CCW holder who died trying (admittedly, unsuccessfully, but quite heroically) to end the rampage and protect people? Now you might say that he failed because he wasn't a professionally trained law man, but then the other two victims were, weren't they?

So, how did the police eventually end the rampage? With good intentions and feather dusters? Or with a high capacity military-style rifle? It's almost as if the inanimate objects are exactly as good or bad as the people holding them...

hmmm.



EDIT: There is a lot of dishonesty on both sides of this debate, but one of the most egregious examples is that when MAIG and their compatriots are bemoaning the number of "gun deaths" in this country, they'll score this incident as five (5), when only three (3) of the deaths are actually lamentable. Do I think the killers deserved to be killed? Not my place to decide. Certainly I pity the man who was forced to do the killing. That said, though, treating every person shot as of equal value is ridiculous.

That's sad.

15. I don't think you can attribute "value" to human beings.

That's what evil people do to justify harming other people.

How much value do you think Ted Bundy attributed to women?
