Good day all. First, our condolences to the families and loved ones murdered by a psychopathic criminal who who should have been drowned at birth. I can’t begin to fully understand what you are going through.
Second, to the family of Ms. Vicki Soto who gave her life trying to save the children in her care. Ms. Soto will be remembered as a brave person who, when thrust into a situation beyond anything she had prepared for, did the right thing.
Now to the purpose of this post. The completely expected reactions of those who think banning private ownership of firearms would have made any sort of difference whatsoever. The first “We must ban all guns” rants started literally before the remains of the victims had been removed from the school. Some of these people are demanding that gun owners be forced to hand in their firearms, and if not, then law enforcement officer should crash in doors and arrest the owners and confiscate their guns.
Typical moonbat drivel from people who think human life is worthless. (Other than their own of course)
Right off the bat was that little pile of warm feces, Michael Bloomberg, General Secretary and tyrant mayor of New York City. Bloomberg issued this statement:
With all the carnage from gun violence in our country, it’s still almost impossible to believe that a mass shooting in a kindergarten class could happen. It has come to that. Not even kindergarteners learning their A,B,Cs are safe. We heard after Columbine that it was too soon to talk about gun laws. We heard it after Virginia Tech. After Tucson and Aurora and Oak Creek. And now we are hearing it again. For every day we wait, 34 more people are murdered with guns. Today, many of them were five-year olds. President Obama rightly sent his heartfelt condolences to the families in Newtown. But the country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem. Calling for ‘meaningful action’ is not enough. We need immediate action. We have heard all the rhetoric before. What we have not seen is leadership – not from the White House and not from Congress. That must end today. This is a national tragedy and it demands a national response. My deepest sympathies are with the families of all those affected, and my determination to stop this madness is stronger than ever.
Bloomberg HATES the fact that we, as American Citizens, have the RIGHT to keep and bear arms. He is so paranoid about guns, that after Hurricane Sandy, Governor Cuomo was all set to send in the National Guard. All Bloomberg had to do was ask for them. Borough President Markowitz1 demanded that they be sent in, but Bloomberg refused, saying they weren’t needed. (They were of course) The reasoning for this? The National Guard has guns! In fact, they have MACHINEGUNS!!2
Also jumping on the “BAN ALL GUNS NOW!” bandwagon was the mayor of the City Of Boston, Thomas A. “Mumbles” Menino. Mumbles issued this statement:
“Today’s tragedy reminds us that now is the time for action. Innocent children will now never attend a prom, never play in a big game, never step foot on a college campus,” Menino said in a statement. “Now is the time for a national policy on guns that takes the loopholes out of the laws, the automatic weapons out of our neighborhoods and the tragedies like today out of our future.”
Mumbles Menino is not considered the brightest light in the tree. Actually, his bulb has been burned out for decades. Just look at his line about getting automatic weapons out of the neighborhoods. Mumbles seems to be thinking that any gun that is black and scary looking is an automatic weapon. An automatic weapon has another name. It’s called a “Machinegun” and those have been heavily regulated for almost a century.
This scumbag murdering psychopathic criminal, (And don’t bother telling me about his psychology and possible disabilities, I don’t give a damn), didn’t use a machinegun. Here’s what I understand he did. (By the way, I refuse to name the little bastard or in any way aggrandize his crime) First, he attempted to buy a rifle at a gun shop, and was either turned down or gave up when he found out he would have to wait several days. (Connecticut has tough gun control laws).
Since he couldn’t buy a rifle, he chose to go another route. He stole the guns he used from his mother, then used them to murder her. I do not know how or if the guns were secured in that house. I’m sure the information will come out in the days and weeks to follow. After stealing several pistols, a semi-automatic rifle and ammunition, the murdering thief proceeded to the school. Evidently the doors were locked so he broke in. Once inside, there was nothing to stop him from committing his crimes.
And this is where we get to who I think is really to blame. Not one teacher had any way of defending their students. The school was a “Gun Free Zone” or what murdering psychopaths like to think of as a “Target Rich Environment.” In every single one of these mass murders, no one had any way to stop the criminal. In some cases, brave men and women either put themselves in front of others, (Vicki Soto), or tried to jump the criminal.
In the latter case, these attempts generally fail because of the distance the brave men and woman have to go to get at the criminal. I don’t fault them for trying, but they should not be in that position in the first place. In fact, in other cases where murdering criminal psychopaths go into a place full of people and start shooting, and one or more people there is armed, those murder sprees are stopped dead in their tracks.
The most recent case of just this sort of thing happening happened the other day in Oregon. Some whackjob went into the Clackmas Mall and opened fire. There was another man there who was carrying a concealed pistol. (He is trained and licensed) This man, Nick Meli, made sure his companions were safe and then drew his pistol and confronted the murdering scumbag.
The scumbag had already murdered two people, and was, according to Mr. Meli, working the bolt on his rifle, (Possibly clearing a misfeed or a jam), when Mr. Meli drew a bead on him. However, Mr. Meli did not fire. The reason for his not blowing the head off the scumbag was simple. He didn’t have a clear shot and was afraid he might hit an innocent bystander. The scumbag was aware that an armed citizen was in a position to return fire, and possibly causing the murdering slimeball to be captured. Instead he killed himself.
Mr. Meli is obviously very shaken and emotionally drained over what happened. He had to make a snap decision, and because he did not have a clear shot, held fire. He wasn’t able to save the two people the criminal killed, but there is no doubt that he did save others, possibly dozens of lives.
You never see these incidents reported in the Obama Steno Pool for a simple reason. It goes against their belief that all people must be disarmed sheep, ready to be slaughtered. This brings me to what I think needs to be done with these gun banning politicians.
They need to be held accountable, preferably criminally accountable for preventing law abiding citizens from being able to protect themselves, their families, their neighbors and their property from these murdering psychopathic scum. People like Diane Feinstein, Jerry Nadler3, Michael Bloomberg, etc. need to be held accountable for their decisions to prevent people from protecting themselves. Maybe if a few of them have to face a jury and either lose their fortunes, or better yet, spend the rest of their miserable lives in prison, the rest will understand that We, The People, will no longer tolerate their attempts to disarm us.
The debate is over. The people have spoken and they have said “ENOUGH! I WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO MAKE ME DEFENSELESS!” The right to keep and bear arms is an INDIVIDUAL right and the Supreme Court, (at least those members who actually read and follow the constitution), have come to understand this fact. You may want to pass your “Reasonable Restriction,” but the American People are now beginning to say:
“You want my guns? COME AND TAKE THEM!”
In case you don’t understand what that means, allow me to explain. The Progressive Liberal Democrats can pass all the gun bans they want, people will not obey them. If the gun banners send out federal agents to confiscate them, those agents will be fired on. Law Enforcement Officials at all levels know that most people will not surrender their firearms. In fact, they agree with the people on their need to be able to defend themselves. They know they can’t be everywhere and that response times will be minutes if not hours when 911 is called.
It isn’t just police saying this. Now we have politicians and city attorneys saying the same thing. For instance, the city attorney for San Bernardino told the citizens to “lock their doors and load their guns.” He said this for one simple reason. The city is broke and no longer has the means to provide the required levels of police protection. (Not that any city ever has been able to)
This, of course, flies in the face of the progressives. They are up in arms over people in positions of authority saying that “The Benevolent State” is unable to protect people. Of course, we all know the real reason the Progressive Liberal Democrats and Statists want to ban guns. It’s to allow them to fully enslave the sheeple. They know that when the sheeple are armed, they reach a point when they stop being sheeple and start being patriots. Liberal Progressive Democrats prefer unarmed sheeple. Then they can force them to do things they don’t want to do, and since they don’t have the means to resist, kill them in large numbers if they refuse to do their masters bidding. (See any totalitarian regime that doesn’t allow people to be armed)
Now, in the interests of public service, allow me to post the 14 Rules Of Gunfighting Everyone Should Know:
- Have a gun
- Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.
- It’s always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
- Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.
- Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.
- Never say “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off.
- The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second
- The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win – cheat if necessary
- Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets…You may get killed with your own gun, but he’ll have to beat you to death with it, cause it’ll be empty.
- If you’re in a gun fight:
10a. If you’re not shooting, you should be loading.
10b. If you’re not loading, you should be moving.
10c. If you’re not shooting, moving or loading, you’re probably dead.
- In a life and death situation, do something…It may be wrong, but do something!
- If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
- You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much a universal language.
- You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.
