We’re Not Indifferent …

… to gun violence. Only to hysterical individuals like our opponents who lately seem to be following the old adage of “When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.”

As quoted by the Associated Press he said the way the bullets come out of those AK47s is scary.

I don’t know about you, but if it’s aimed in my direction, the way bullets come out of any gun is scary.

That contention is that with everyone loaded for bear, we would stop a lot of these unwarranted attacks on civilization. Right! What the man who might have been a hero did is follow an instinct that nine out of ten other persons in his shoes would. When under assault by superior firepower, the best solution is to duck and run for the nearest cover and stay there.

He was not under assault. He was in his BBQ joint across the street. None of the people who were under assault were armed.

When he was through, he came outside and further demonstrated his prowess by spraying bullets through shopping center windows before killing himself as the police arrived. That brought the gun’s total for the day to four including the shooter. Not terribly impressive considering what those things can do.

That’s because all guns do is fire small bits of lead at extreme velocities. It’s the killer’s tactics that make the big difference, and if the killer has good tactics, he can easily accomplish his feat with matches and gasoline if that’s all that’s available. What keeps body counts down in this situation is a fast response by other armed individuals, such as the police, and the incompetence of the shooter at target selection.

How’s that for action Wayne La Pierre? For the un-anointed in the gun religion, he is the chief heat packer for the National Rifle Association and its followers. You know those who oppose any reasonable restraint on the dissemination of firearms here and across borders like Mexico unless they can find a way to use the issue to beat up on law enforcement.

The dismissal of the Fast and Furious scandal tells me that Dan K. Thomasson doesn’t give a whit about gun violence either. None of them do, and you’re a fool if you believe the facade. Guns are icky, and we have to get them out of society. That’s what they stand for. Nothing else.

    I wouldn’t have a problem with these wackos if they limited their proselytizing to ranting on street corners about the immorality of guns, with the goal of persuasion. Instead their goal is to outlaw our guns; trying to use the power of the state against us.

    Ultimately the anti-gunners really don’t have a problem with guns. After all they want to empower the Government’s men (with guns) to take away our guns. It’s not about guns, it’s about which people can have guns. Ultimately what they really have a problem with is us, and not guns in general.

    So of course I take this issue personally (as do many gun owners), because I understand the anti-gunners real intentions. They want me dead or in jail or my property confiscated.

    Too bad for the anti-gunners that we outnumber them by ten to one.

    I highlighted the link to see which of our favorite anti-gun trolls had blogged that and was Freaking Appalled to see that it was an actual published editorial.

    Somebody got PAID to write that? It would have gotten poor marks in 10th Grade Grammar/Comp 101!

    First quote notes that how bullets come out of an AK “is scary”. Er…yah. How bullets come out of any firearm is scary. How cars go down the freeway, with far more kinetic energy than a bullet is scary. How I sliced my thumb open once was scary. When an older man in the condo building I was in had a stroke and lay in his shower for most of 5 hours before anyone found him, and then just because of leaking water, that’s scary.

    Get real. Life is scary. Live it or hide.
