“I reject your reality and substitute my own.”

CSGV had a link to a blog/webiste/whatever where Dr. Art Kamm riles against the NC bill that allows guns in places where alcohol is sold. As I read the article, I could visualize a fella in white medical coat, nametag, stethoscope around his neck (and don’t ask me why, a crappy mustache and wire-rimmed glasses) using a fatherly yet stern voice while warning us about the “disaster” that mixing guns and alcohol would be.

He closes his article with the following jewel:

And for those who might say as this has not occurred it is not a problem, go to my first article (link here) where it is explained that it is not history, but rather potential, that is central to enacting commonsense safety regulation.

Wait..WHAT? I could not myself and engaged the good doctor (specializing in Dermatology) and pointed out that Florida possesses a 23 year history of guns in restaurants without wild shootouts but he basically chose to ignore the facts because they interfere with his proposition and “belief.” The final nail in his self-interment was to quote the infamous Kellerman 43 times study which pretty much is an indicator the person bringing it out is a political hack and a statistical moron.

I did wave him goodbye with this final post:

One last thing Doctor: Should you be arrested and jailed for rape even though you never committed such crime? According to your final statement you have both the potential and the equipment. Past history of your behavior, morals and honesty should not be considered, right?

I wonder if he will go the Japete route with that comment…

Big PS: Do enjoy Sean Sorrentino’s comments, he took the good Idiot to task.

  1. He’s playing the “I’m responsible/reasonable/authoritative, why are all you crazy nuts not doing what I say?” game.

    It must suck to run into people who know much more about the subject than you.

    So you followed the CSGV link. I followed the NCGV link. NCGV isn’t updating their Twitter feed very often. I wonder what their financing situation is that they can’t be bothered to update their Twitter except to mirror the national group.

  2. There were several times that I looked up at my address bar to see if I was at Joan’s place. Wow… Simply wow.

    Both of you, nicely done on your talking points.
