How Leftists Exploit Tragedy and Demagogue the Issue on Guns and Gun Control

2013-02-04-GunProtestor

“If you cared about saving lives, you would agree with my policies on gun control.”

This sentiment (often used by Leftists) is bullying, a Scotsman fallacy, and doesn’t take into account that added gun control measures simply do work! If you suggest additional gun control laws, you are ignoring reality. If laws are not working, why do you suggest more?images-1

I understand the desperation, frustration, fear and pain. How about we start by obeying the laws we already have? The VA Tech shooter was ordered by court to have mental health checkups, but they failed to follow up. That’s on them. But the NRA is not responsible. Gun culture is not responsible (the recent man from Virginia who shot a journalist and her cameraman was in no way influenced by it; he bought his first gun just this past June). How about we redirect our anger at other people and focus it on the murderer. I realize that won’t solve anything, but if you find yourself pissed off at those who own guns or are otherwise an advocate, you’re blame shifting. And how about we talk about, dare I say it, the irrefutable racial motivations of this monster. Why is no one left of center bringing that up?

Too often, the focus is on the weapon

and not of the evil in the heart.

There’s more to say on this.
Maybe I will another day.
Sigh.
PS: This past Labor Day weekend, I shot a machine gun for the first time!

(For anyone who thinks this is insensitive in light of recent shootings, please understand that I was under the watch of a U.S. National Guardsman and was in a very controlled setting in a professional shooting range working on target practice, operating a type of firearm that has never been used in a mass shooting)

This makes me SOOOO happy!

Renae told me about this and, um, the only way I could love this video more is if I was the bride and that beautiful man was singing to me.  Oh, and I’d probably get a dress with sleeves 🙂  And also girlfriend ‘s beautiful and seems very nice, but she didn’t need to spend so much time at the tanning bed….

Tori and her family know them from Chicago!
