The New Civility

I realize that this stuff gets a little old, but I’m always amazed at the creativity that anti-gun folks bring to the table when it comes to silencing their political opponents. For example, one woman wants to transition from a volunteer military to one that institutes a draft based on political views:

This person wants everyone to know that those citizens who have a different interpretation of the Second Amendment clearly should be forced to pay for other people’s medical expenses, regardless of the fact that they have nothing to do with that person or the circumstances that caused medical care. Since I assume one would need to tax NRA members at or near 100% in order pay the entire healthcare needs of the rest of the country, I guess this person is advocating for government-mandated bankruptcy for all of those who disagree with his views:

This person believes that all NRA members are male. Of course, this comes with the always popular small manhood joke.

And for the groups that like to say they aren’t really trying to confiscate guns, well, maybe a little education is in order for their supporters:

Of course, maybe giving them that advice is a bad idea. If their followers were educated on the reality of politics and law, they might actually figure out how to win a few battles on the political front. Oh, wait, that requires support from people who actually turn up to vote on the issue, so scratch that.

And, finally, we have a few more tweets about Olympian Corey Cogdell who has been witness to the love and understanding that animal rights activists show for all of God’s creatures on this earth:

    These people are disturbing.

    I hope Corey isn’t paying any attention to them and goes for the gold tomorrow!

    • Bitter says:

      I agree. It’s interesting that most of them won’t respond when challenged, even if the challenge is polite and reasonable.

  2. AndyN says:

    Think of how badly those people hating on Corey Cogdell would lose their shit if the IOC hadn’t abandoned dueling pistols and live pigeon shooting as sports years ago.

  3. Shootin' Buddy says:

    The violence to Corey is coming from Euroweenies.

  4. Chas Clifton says:

    At least in this case the “new civility” backfired.

  5. Andy says:


    Can’t we all just get along?

    • SDN says:

      Since the Leftist ideal is a world where they are the Masters and we are the slaves, NO!

  6. If these people mailed physical letters to Corey with some of these comments you could take them to the police. I mean, death threats should be evaluated seriously, right?

    But on “teh internets” these people are brave and fearless bullies.

  7. Carl from Chicago says:

    I agree. That stuff gets a little old.

  8. jack of all trades says:

    “Why don’t we send #NRA to war zones”

    Been there done that (Afghanistan). So has my old employer’s son (Iraq).

    Kind of makes me want to respond with “Let’s send gun control advocates to (Insert country currently committing genocide).”

  9. Panamared says:

    I find it strange that these people constantly mangle the truth, and when they get called on it, they either yell their arguments louder, or they just create another, equally fraudulent,argument.
    I can’t help but believe that their real agenda is something other than crime control, since slowing down violent crime is just as fraudulent as the rest of their arguments. Could it be that they know that the first step in controlling a free people, is to disarm them.

  10. Harold Lloyd says:

    There’s plenty of blame for incivility to go around on both sides.

    Why are so many people so angry? And I don’t mean just about this issue, but just in general.
    Is this where we’re getting the spree shooters?
