What Your Reaction to My NRA Sticker Says About You

27 Comments

OK, so I don’t have an NRA sticker. Although I’m an ardent gun rights advocate, I am not an NRA member. The NRA and I never really got along all that well. But nonetheless, bear with me here, because I’m about to explain why the NRA sticker says much more about the metrosexual douche pickle who wrote this column than it does about anyone who has that sticker on their vehicle.

I see that NRA decal on the rear window of your car and my eyes narrow. I look at the back of your head in the driver’s seat and I wonder if you are a threat.

A threat to my children. A threat to me. A threat to society.

I see you quivering in your panties about a sticker, and I snicker just a bit. I look at you and I wonder if you ever had any courage, any integrity, and any understanding of the laws and principles on which this nation was founded. And I wonder if you’re a threat.

A threat to my freedoms. A threat to my way of life. A threat to the Constitution.

I see a news report about the latest shooting deaths in the United States. I brace myself for the NRA talking points on social media.

I see a news report about the latest shooting deaths in the United States. I brace myself for screeching politicians and panty shitters like you spreading the “common sense gun control” mantra without an understanding of what that means or the possible unintended consequences of its implementation.

I try not to read them. I fail at that. I am appalled and saddened and sickened and angry.

I always read them, because I need to ensure that I am able and willing to protect my life and the lives of my loved ones against unimaginable evil. I need to remind myself that it exists.

I am reminded why I consider you a potential threat.

I am reminded of why I consider you a sad, pathetic little coward.

To me, that NRA decal on the rear window of your car represents violent death.

To me, your reaction to that NRA decal on the rear window of my car represents gutlessness.

By displaying that NRA decal on the rear window of your car, you are endorsing violent death.

By cringing at that NRA decal, you are endorsing an abdication of your rights and responsibilities as a citizen and as a human being.

By endorsing violent death, you show me that you do not care about the tens of thousands of gun deaths in the United States every year.

By shirking your responsibility to protect yourself and your loved ones you show me that you don’t care how many crimes are stopped and how many lives are potentially saved with the responsible use of firearms.

You don’t care about the gun deaths at Columbine. You don’t care about the gun deaths at Virginia Tech. You don’t care about the gun deaths at Tucson. You don’t care about the gun deaths at Aurora. You don’t care about the gun death at a movie theater up the road from here in Wesley Chapel. You don’t care about the gun deaths at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown. You don’t care about the gun deaths at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.

You don’t care about the gun deaths this morning at Bridgewater Plaza in Virginia.

You don’t care about the lives Jeanne Assam saved by shooting an armed madman at the New Life Church in Colorado Springs. You don’t care about the toddler who was saved by mom’s dispatching of an intruder breaking into her home. You don’t care about the 9-year-old twins whose lives were saved by their mother using a revolver. You don’t care about the countless lives of students that Joel Myrick saved by retrieving a gun from his car and stopping Luke Woodham at Pearl High School. You don’t care about the lives of the congregants at the Boiling Springs’ South Side Freewill Baptist Church that were saved by one man taking responsibility for the lives of others. You don’t care about the lives of innocent shoppers at Clackamas Mall that were saved after an armed citizen confronted a gunman. You don’t care about the construction workers whose lives were saved because one armed foreman stopped a disgruntled employee. You certainly don’t care about hospital workers, doctors, nurses, and patients whose lives were saved by one armed doctor after a mental patient marched in and started shooting. And we know you don’t give a rancid rat’s ass about the twins whose lives were saved by their teenage brother after intruders broke into their home.

That is what the NRA decal displayed in the rear window of your car tells me.

Is that fair?

Nope. It’s also not rational, but we don’t expect fairness, justice, and logic from quivering self-soilers who infer all this nonsense from a simple window sticker.

Is it just of me to conclude that you don’t care about the loss of human life because of the proliferation of guns in the U.S., simply because you choose to display an NRA decal in the rear window of your car?

Maybe not. Yet, how am I to know that you are not the next “good guy with a gun” to snap?

Here’s a clue, dimwit: The vast majority of NRA members are law-abiding citizens. But more than that, how do you know? You don’t. I don’t either. And while crimes of passion are relatively rare, since I don’t know, I’d rather be able to at least try to defend myself with an effective tool than cower, soil myself in fear, and hope the bad guy goes away. I’d rather have a fighting chance. But then again, I’m a responsible adult, not a sniveling coward.

How am I to know that something about the way I drive, or something about the way your day or life is going, or something imagined by you and unimaginable to me triggers the compulsion to shoot, and to kill?

If you really believe that you might be a trigger for someone’s violent road rage, wouldn’t you rather be able to defend yourself and potentially save your own life and those of your kids? Oh, wait… I forgot… Your mangina forbids such acts of masculine courage.

Because of that NRA decal in the rear window of your car, because I am the father of two beautiful boys who are growing up with a backdrop of rampant gun violence, the only responsible conclusion for me to draw is that you are armed – and dangerous. That you are a threat. That you could, if you chose, pull out your gun and shoot me or my children without a thought or even provocation.

Because of your whimpering reaction to my NRA decal, and because I’m the mother of two beautiful, responsible children, one of whom is a U.S. Marine, while the other is an ROTC student at UNC Charlotte, and both of whom were able to responsibly use firearms under adult supervision, and later on their own, since they were tiny tots, the only logical conclusion for me to draw is that you are a coward, who is an easy victim for armed thugs, who doesn’t care enough about the lives of those beautiful boys to take steps to responsibly defend them.

Maybe that is not fair. Maybe you are a gentle, kind person who happens to enjoy shooting sports.

Maybe you are an ignorant and have no comprehension of what the Second Amendment is about.

Here is a fair conclusion, though: You care more about your “right” to own a gun than you care about my right to live without the fear that members of my family or my friends might be shot and killed at school, at the movies, in our car, on the job, in church … anywhere. Anywhere at all.

Here’s a fair conclusion, though: Your inclusion of the word “right” in quotation marks shows you have no concept of what a right actually is. You are incapable of comprehending that your “right” to live without fear does not obligate me or anyone else to stroke your pusillanimous fantasies and make you feel all comfy and cozy. You care about your imagined “right” to impose your cowardice and ignorance on millions of innocent people who happen to be gun owners. You are a selfish prick.

It is more important to you that the 300 million guns in the United States remain in the hands of their owners than it is for my children to grow up in a country where violent gun deaths are an anomaly, rather than the norm.

It’s more important to you to impose your arbitrary, subjective standards of “security” on others than recognize that others should have the ability to protect themselves without whining invertebrates such as you forcing them to conform to your gutless wankery.

You would rather risk more lives, thousands more, than take responsible action on gun control. In your world, there is an “acceptable” number of violent gun deaths.

You would rather see your fellow citizens defenseless at the nonexistent mercy of armed thugs than put on your big boy pants, man up, and support all law-abiding citizens’ right to defend themselves with the most effective tool on the market today.

I conclude that about you, because you choose to display that NRA decal in the rear window of your car.

I conclude that you’re a heartless, senseless, hysterical, walking mangina because you view your fellow Americans as threats merely by looking at a decal on their car window.

How does it feel to know that the father, the husband, the son, the friend, the writer in the car behind you is afraid of what you might do because of that NRA decal displayed in the rear window of your car?

It makes me feel sad for the state of our society that sniveling pussies like you exist, that you will likely raise your sons to be just as gutless and sad as you are, and that some poor woman chose to reproduce with you in the first place.

How does that feel to you?

Actually … never mind.

I don’t think I want to know.

You wrote that senseless dreck, so now you know.

Note: Apparently this sad little excuse for a gonad didn’t like the response he received from his fellow Americans, whom he frames as potential threats for absolutely no reason, so he shut the comments down for his blog. It’s typical. He apparently couldn’t respond in a mature, rational way, so rather than put in the effort, he simply decided to shut down others’ ability to respond to his drivel. Much like his response to an NRA label in someone’s window, this makes him a coward.

A Shooting in Virginia (UPDATED)

5 Comments

Cross posted at the Zelman Partisans.

There was a shooting in Virginia today. The shooter, a former WDBJ journalist pulled a gun on two of the station’s reporters and killed them both. He also wounded the woman being interviewed on the air. She is thankfully listed in stable condition. He then proceeded to drive north on I-81 and east on I-66 with police in pursuit before shooting himself in the head.

Before the bodies of 24-year-old reporter Alison Parker and 27-year-old cameraman Adam Ward were even cold, Virginia’s opportunistic swine of a governor Fast Terry McAuliffe started immediately calling for more gun control.

“There are too many guns in the hands of people that shouldn’t have guns,” McAuliffe said during an interview with WTOP. “There is too much gun violence in America,” he said, adding that he has long advocated for strengthening gun background checks and that it should be made a priority.

The only problem with Fast Terry’s contention is that no background check would have stopped Vester Lee Flanagan from purchasing a gun.

Let’s for a moment ignore the fact that he could quickly and easily have gotten a firearm through illegal means.

Let’s for a moment forget that Vester Lee Flanagan did not have a criminal record, and the only crime he had ever been charged with was driving with an altered or revoked licence and having no registration on his vehicle in Pitt County, North Carolina in 2004, which certainly would not have made him ineligible to purchase a firearm.  And he had no history of mental illness either. In other words, he would have passed any background check any time.

So what would Fast Terry suggest?

Depriving him of his Second Amendment right, because he had a history of filing grievances against his employers?

How about making him ineligible to purchase a firearm because he was black? Or gay?

Or how about taking away his rights because he was upset about being fired and refused to leave, forcing the station to call the police to physically remove him from the premises? Would Terry have infringed on his right to keep and bear arms, because he was a jerk to his co-workers?

I’ve always said that the gun grabbers’ goal was not to reduce violence or save lives, but to disarm those of us who committed no crime whatsoever all for the sake of political expediency.

Fast Terry knows perfectly well that no new law would have stopped this shooting. Flanagan would have passed every background check in the world, so the only option left is for Fast Terry to start working to deny others their rights. Others who may be odd… or gay… or black… or difficult to work with…

As my friend Mike Williamson said in an article a long time ago, these politicians want to keep guns out of the “wrong hands” – and guess what! You’ve got the “wrong hands.”

UPDATE: In an interview with Megyn Kelly last night, Alison Parker’s father pledged to do everything in his power to keep guns out of the hands of people he called “crazy.”

I grieve along with Mr. Parker. I cannot imagine the unbearable grief of losing a child! I understand the emotion behind that pledge to shame “legislators into doing something about closing loopholes and background checks.”

However, I also understand the following as a rational person: There was no loophole, and no background check that could have prevented Flanagan from getting a firearm! He was not even seeing a psychiatrist! He was not a prohibited person. There is no background check he would not have passed. The fact that he was an entitled jerk, a bad employee, and a crappy co-worker does not make him mentally ill or ineligible to own a firearm.

There is literally no loophole and no law that allowed him – a law abiding citizen, until he pulled that trigger yesterday – to purchase a gun when he should not have been allowed to do so. None.

And yet, in the heat of grief, the push for more ineffective laws that will do nothing but disarm those who have committed no crime continues, with the likes of Fast Terry and Hillary Clinton leading the charge.

Marine Arrested in DC; Connected Scum Still Walking Free

4 Comments

Wanna see some double standards? How about this?

A Marine detailed to the office of California GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr. was arrested Tuesday for possession of an unregistered firearm after a loaded .45 caliber handgun was discovered in his vehicle.

Gunnery Sgt. Peter Boby, a congressional fellow in the Corps’ Office of Legislative Affairs, was arrested after being stopped at a security checkpoint near a House office building, according to the U.S. Capitol Police.

Boby was also charged with carrying a pistol without a license and possession of unregistered ammunition. He processed at Capitol Police headquarters.

My educated guess is he made a mistake. He probably simply forgot the firearm was in his vehicle.

Stupid mistake? Yes.

But should his career be ruined, and his future destroyed because of what likely was an unintentional, albeit dumb, error? I’d say no.

And yet, Boby was arrested and charged for what was obviously an inadvertent error, while politically connected media maggot David Gregory faced no consequences whatsoever after quite intentionally bringing a “high capacity” magazine into the District, because apparently that wasn’t in the public interest. I’m sure it had nothing to do with Gregory and his wife’s close relationship with the DC Attorney General.

Frankly, I trust the Marine – a combat veteran and an NCO – with a firearm much more than I trust leeches such as David Gregory with a magazine, let alone with a camera and a microphone, given the amount of damage his biased agenda can cause.

Shaneen Allen finally pardoned (also, the poop trifecta is complete)

5 Comments

For those of you who were hoping for a poop trifecta, I was going to burst your bubble this morning, because I didn’t see anything poop-related to complete the cycle. I did read a story this morning about a woman in India who had apparently been urinating into her in-laws’ tea for a year and was finally discovered squatting over the tea pot by her mother-in-law. Apparently Creepella didn’t like the way she was treated by her husband, who was a whining, spineless snot who massaged her feet, did chores around the house, and cooked for her until his mommy came along and put the kebosh on that arrangement. And that’s when she decided to add something special to the in-laws’ tea.

Gross, but not the same as pooping in Wal Mart.

Well, my friend Casey obliged today by sending me this.

The story comes to us from Florida (where else?) after 27-year-old Michael Anthony Johnson was arrested and charged after he allegedly broke into an ex-girlfriend’s home and pooped on her stuff.

But that’s not what I really want to talk about today.

I want to mention some good news. I already blogged about this at the Zelman Partisans, so I don’t want to rehash the entire thing. Go over there and read it, will ya? But the short of it is that after a year and a half of what I can only imagine was a shit show of a stressful time, worrying about prison, about a criminal record, about a job, etc., the opportunistic swine of a governor that currently infests New Jersey finally pardoned Shaneen Allen – the young, single mother of two, who mistakenly drove into New Jersey with her legally concealed (in Pennsylvania) firearm.

I have no doubt that the only reason Christie signed the pardon is because he has higher political aspirations. For that, he can go eat a large bag of dicks. But it’s good news for Shaneen Allen, and I’m happy for her and her family.

Virginia Politician Joins Ranks of Political Dumbassery

2 Comments

Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of stories about the burning stupid of politicians. There was Hank “Guam is capsizing” Johnson, who worried that the small island would actually tip over if we staged a military buildup there.

There was this moron Joe Salazar, who didn’t think women should defend themselves against rape with a gun, because they’re just too emotional and stupid to do so. Use call boxes and whistles, he told potential rape victims.

There was Sheila Jackson Lee, who thought the Democrats should write Executive Orders for the President.

There was Todd Akin’s blisteringly dumb “legitimate rape” comment.

There were Anthony Weiner’s numerous gaffes with Weiner Jr.

There was Sarah Palin’s “North Korean allies” gaffe.

And there was Corrine Brown’s historic speech on the floor of the Congress, “GO GATA!” which will forever go down in history as one of the most entertaining speeches on the House floor – one that never fails to crack me up.

The list of politician stupid is too long to detail, and frankly, there’s just not enough bandwidth to do it justice.

And recently, it looks like a Virginia legisleech is joining the ranks of the stupid.

In his efforts to relieve Virginia gun owners of their rights, Alfonso Lopez (D-umbass, Arlington) has introduced new legislation to ban high capacity magazines in the Commonwealth. In order to add gravitas… or just hysterical idiocy… to his proposal, Lopez decided to show just how “unsafe” the residents of the Old Dominion are with these evil high capacity magazines running around.

“Since 1931, federal law prohibits me from having more than three shotgun shells in my shotgun when I’m duck hunting,” he said. “That means that ducks have more protection than people in Virginia.

“Let me repeat that: Under the law, ducks have more protection than people in Virginia,” Lopez said.

Yep. Ducks are apparently safer in Virginia than humans, says Lopez.

Well, PolitiFact disagrees. As a matter of fact, they gave this claim their “Pants on Fire” rating, meaning if Lopez was any more off, his pants would double as an incendiary device used in controlled forest burns.

The very premise of Lopez’s claim is flawed. It’s legal to hunt ducks in Virginia. If you shoot one with a barred firearm for duck hunting, it’s a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum $500 fine.

It’s illegal to shoot people in Virginia with any firearm, except in limited instances of self defense.

The murder of person in Virginia is punishable by death or lengthy prison sentences. There’s no jail time for shooting a duck, even if it’s done with an illegal shotgun.

It’s illegal to even point a gun at another person in Virginia in a menacing way, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and a $2,500 fine. State law is silent about pointing a gun at a duck.

For his part, the idiot tried to walk back his lunacy, claiming that’s not what he meant, but PolitiFact points out that not only did he say exactly that “ducks have more protection that people” from assault gun violence, but that he repeated it to drive the point home.

I’m sure the ducks are worried.

Dumb PSA encourages kids to engage in felonious behavior

10 Comments

Ever wonder where stupid ideas come from? I’ve been following the #gunsense feed on Twitter for months, and I have to admit there are some incredibly stupid claims out there. I’ve seen everything from gun grabbers’ paranoid delusions about AR15s being evil killing machines to calls for SWATting of gun owners who choose to open carry their firearms.

But even I – as jaded as I am – couldn’t imagine this much stupid packed into one three-minute video.

The “PSA” was produced by some leftist twit named Rejina Sincic, and it’s filled with SO much wrong, it’s hard to imagine why anyone would ever want to promote this bit of stupidity.

It depicts a teenage kid in a nice, peaceful home with his mom, stealing – yes STEALING – a pistol out of his mom’s drawer (I suppose we should be grateful he at least practices good trigger discipline when he steals the firearm, places it in his bag and walks out with it). He then brings it to his properly diverse school, filled with tired, but properly diverse children. After class ends, this kid slams the gun down on his teacher’s desk and says, “Can you take this away? I don’t feel safe with a gun in my house.”

The last credit says, “Stop Gun Violence Now.”

Let me see if I have this right. A kid steals a gun from his utterly peaceful home, brings it to school, hands it over to another person (the teacher) all in the name of stopping “gun violence.”

How much criminal, felonious stupid can be packed into one anti-gun ass jerkery? My buddy Erin has a list.

0:15 – Burglary (kid entered his mom’s bedroom with the intent to commit theft)

0:23 – Robbery AND minor in possession of a firearm AND, depending on the state and the value of the firearm, grand theft

0:40 – Clearly, the kid has time to think about what he’s doing — it’s not a spur of the moment thing — so there’s probably some premeditation going on

0:46 – Bringing a firearm onto school grounds (Federal Felony!)

1:41 – Menacing 

1:46 – Transfer of stolen goods AND illegal transfer of a firearm (and, also notably, no Background Check performed on the teacher)

And let’s not forget that the kid is too young to be carrying said gun, let alone carrying it concealed, which requires a license in most states!

So this daft bint wants us to stop violence by promoting theft, violation of the “gun-free” school zone law, and the transfer of stolen property. Not to mention the promotion of fascist snitchery. “Go on, kids! It’s OK to commit multiple felonies as long as you rat your parents out to your teacher!”

Criticism of this lunacy, of course, was palpable, so this dummy decided to enlist the help of the CSGV – the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence – the horde of tyrannical douche canoes that sprouted out of the National Coalition to ban Handguns, whose goal is not stopping “gun violence,” but “licensing gun owners, registering firearms, and banning private ownership of handguns.”

She couldn’t actually refute any of the criticism herself, so she figured she would glom on to one of the most heinously, anti-freedom, anti-rights, anti-Constitution groups out there to help her spread her evil.

Don’t worry, Rejina. You’re now infamous for having made one of the most unoriginal, dull, dimwitted, and stupid anti-gun videos out there! Congratulations!

Thanks bunches, vagina voters!

Those of you alleged libertarians who went out and actively spread filth about Ken Cuccinelli during the last Virginia gubernatorial election because of the hysterical “OMG Cuccinelli wants to control my vagina!” meme gave us the corrupt scumbag Terry McAuliffe – I hope you’re happy. I know libertarians are supposed to give a shit about gun rights, so I hope they’re thrilled with McAuliffe’s efforts to destroy the Second Amendment in Virginia.

McAuliffe’s gun initiatives include proposals to:

  • Prohibit the possession of firearms by people subject to protective orders

  • Prohibit the possession of firearms by misdemeanor domestic violence offenders

  • Reinstate the one-handgun-a-month law

  • Revoke concealed-handgun permits for parents delinquent on child support payments

  • Close the “gun show loophole”

The Lautenberg Amendment already prohibits possession, transport, ownership, etc. of firearms by domestic abusers and those subject to a restraining order. And guess what! Any dillhole willing to beat up another person just because his nuts may itch that day will not be stopped by a piece of paper when it comes to purchasing a gun.

The unconstitutional, morally repugnant, and unnecessary one-handgun-a-month law was repealed in Virginia in 2012. Not only did Virginia not see an increase in gun-related crime after the repeal of this monstrosity, but these crimes actually had been on the decrease for a few years before the law was repealed, and continues to drop today.

Then McAuliffe wants to just cancel the Second Amendment rights of parents who are delinquent on child support payments. Now, having dealt with that situation, it’s revolting when a parent won’t support their children. But does that make said parent violent or dangerous? Will depriving them of their natural rights somehow reduce violence? The parent is broke, not violent, ferpetessake! So this is just another little chip off your gun rights.

And then there’s that nonexistent “gun show loophole.” It always boggles my mind when I see progtards drool that old meme. If there was indeed a gun show loophole through which criminals can easily purchase guns, wouldn’t they be purchasing said guns there in droves? Instead less than 1 percent of guns used in crimes were purchased at gun shows. Yeah, there’s a loophole. It’s called the black market, and it’s basic economics, which McAuliffe doesn’t seem to understand. The more you limit legal purchases of firearms and make the exercise of natural rights more onerous, the more people will simply purchase guns off the books. There’s a demand. There will always be a supply. I guess the War on Drugs taught him nothing.

But yes. The vagina voters from all over Virginia gave us McAuliffe. Corrupt, statist, arrogant, hypocritical McAuliffe, and now he’s going after the natural rights of Virginians.

Thanks, vagina voters. Thanks a pantsload. Enjoy your unregulated vaginas, because pretty soon, if T-Mac and crew have their way, you won’t be able to defend them with anything more than a back scratcher.

Let’s hope the Virginia GOP grows some testicles and ensures that Terry’s proposals swirl the drain with the rest of the turds.
