Shorter Obama: I like to play off the heartstrings of people and exploit tragedies by using the mothers of victims to talk about gun control, because if you don’t agree with her you will look like some sort of monster.
Well screw you Obama, I have a heart, but I also have a brain and I use it. I see this for exactly what it is, a publicity stunt to use against people who support the 2nd Amendment.
Where is Mark Mattioli in all of this? You know, the father of a victim at Sandy Hook who has made it very clear that he does not support gun control.
I guess you won’t fly him around and invite him to the White House to do a weekly address for you because he’s not worth anything to you. He had a child that died too, but he doesn’t tow the line like a proper victim so he gets ignored.
I think that Colorado lawmakers have proven that not only do they not care about a woman’s right to choose (to carry a weapon), but that they are completely missing the point of why Conservatives are against “gun free zones”.
A Colorado state senator, Evie Hudak, thinks that Amanda Collins (a rape victim would would have been carrying a gun, if she hadn’t been in the gun-free “safe” zone of The University of Nevada) wouldn’t have been able to protect herself with a gun if she had been carrying.
Let’s play a game called “how many times can a Democrat be a misogynist without the media pointing it out”.
This will NOT be a drinking game, mostly because I don’t want you to die of alcohol poisoning.
Let’s count this off:*
1. The University of Colorado: Colorado Springs is under the impression that it’s better for women to pee, vomit, or bleed on their rapist than it is for them to, I don’t know, carry a gun or even take self-defense lessons. Those two things weren’t listed on their “safety tip sheet” for women. (Which has since been removed from the website.) Yes, I’m sure that informing my rapist that I am menstruating or telling him I have HIV or Herpes is really going to be far more effective than shooting him. *eye roll*
2. Another Colorado story (really Colorado, If this is what comes of legalizing Marijuana, then let’s keep it illegal), Democrat State Representative, Joe Salazar, is apparently operating under the idea that women are far too hysterical and irresponsible to handle carrying a weapon as a form of self-defense.
“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at,” he said during a legislative hearing. “And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble and when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop — pop a round at somebody.” – The Blaze
You know what actual rape victims think about call boxes and safe zones, Salazar?
Mr. President, you were totally asking for this photo of you “skeet shooting” to be edited the minute you told us not to do it. You know Americans, we are incorrigible and we really like our 1st amendment rights.
So this comment:
“This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photography may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggest approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.”
was sort of like waving a giant red sheet in front of the raging bull of conservative disdain.
What exactly did you think was going to happen?
Apparently Piers Morgan believes that armed guards or civilians should actually be Tom Cruise in disguise, able to stop a shooter before the shooter pulls and fires their gun.
Mother Jones doesn’t think that any shooting where the shooter has less than 4 victims is a “mass shooting”, but Piers apparently lives in the opposite extreme where, even if an armed guard foils the attempts of a 15 year old would-be mass shooter, it doesn’t really count as stopping the mass-shooting because 1 person was shot.
“REVEALED: Armed guard was NOT able to stop Atlanta school shooting,” Morgan posted via his official Twitter account. He then linked to a story with a headline that completely contradicted his questionable claim. “Armed guard disarmed teen in Atlanta school shooting, says police chief,” the headline read.
No one ever claimed that armed citizens or armed guards are sci-fi heroes who could stop crimes before they even happen. We don’t have pale, naked, bald psychics laying around in vats of water in our basements that alert us to when and where someone is going to commit a crime; contrary to what Piers seems to believe.
This week in stupid things that anti-gun advocates have said.
CAROLYN MCCARTHY: I will tell you, if you talk to professionals, hunters and certainly sportsmen, they’ll tell you that’s not the gun to use. A rifle is more accurate. It’s certainly easier for a woman to be able to do that.
There are several glaring issues with this statement. Not only are AR-15 used for hunting and sporting, as well as home defense, but she seems to be making the claiming that an AR-15 is not a rifle. This alone proves that she knows absolutely nothing about guns and has no place being part of the debate about gun control. AR-15′s are most certainly rifles.
In amongst all of this brouhaha, there are some claims that we can all agree on “common sense gun control.” And this sounds reasonable. More strenuous background checks, preventing the mentally ill from getting guns, and the like. Of course all of these measures must be implemented by the government. You know the same government that gave the very guns it’s now claiming should be banned to Mexican Drug Cartels. I’m sorry but I would give a schizophrenic a gun before I give a gun to drug cartels (with the schizophrenic you might have a 50/50 chance they won’t do anything, with the cartels you have a 100% chance that mass murder will occur).
But I do believe in common sense gun control.
My latest post at Dirty Sex and Politics Magazine reminds gun owners to be responsible and reminds liberals that accidents do happen, accidents do not equate to mass shootings, and gun ownership still makes our country safer, regardless of accidents.
As for me, my dad has promised my family a trip to go shooting tomorrow.
