Moms Demand: Example Failure.

Moms Annette FAIL


On July 29, 2006, my son Lee was shot leaving a pizza parlor in Irvington, New Jersey. He was 21-years-old and handsome, with long dreads. We had been expecting him home to discuss details of the baby shower planned for the daughter he was to have, but never to hold. Fatherhood Interrupted

Wait..what? In New Jersey? Almost Perfect Gun Control New Jersey?  Rated A by Brady Campaign New Jersey?

Dear Lady, I am sure nobody feels the pain you have for the loss of your son, but that does not give you the right to wave the bloody shirt and try to bullshit your way into some sort of revenge for things millions of gun owners had nothing to do with.

The cesspool that is New jersey won’t be cured by ordering folks outside your state to become victims of the fellow criminals that took the life of your son. I understand that misery loves company, but of If I can help it, I rather spare mine of such tribulation.

I do hope you are just a tool of Shannon Watts and do not truly feel we should become victims to ease your pain.

Just seeing guns cause aggression.

ngvac agression

This one had to be a doozy so I checked it out:. It seems that some people get angry at the sight of guns. Mind you, not the ones carrying the gun or owning them but unarmed people.

The weapons effect occurs outside of the lab too. In one field experiment,[2] a confederate driving a pickup truck purposely remained stalled at a traffic light for 12 seconds to see whether the motorists trapped behind him would honk their horns (the measure of aggression). The truck contained either a .303-calibre military rifle in a gun rack mounted to the rear window, or no rifle. The results showed that motorists were more likely to honk their horns if the confederate was driving a truck with a gun visible in the rear window than if the confederate was driving the same truck but with no gun. What is amazing about this study is that you would have to be pretty stupid to honk your horn at a driver with a military rifle in his truck—if you were thinking, that is! But people were not thinking—they just naturally honked their horns after seeing the gun. The mere presence of a weapon automatically triggered aggression. …
…Weapons can even make people aggressive when they cannot “see” them because they are presented subliminally. In a study conducted in our lab[4], for example, participants who were exposed to weapon words (e.g., gun) for only 17/100 second were more aggressive afterwards than were participants exposed to nonaggressive words (e.g., water).The “weapons effect”

I know that most normal people including gun owners do not become virulent idiots ate the sight or just mention of guns. Normal non-gunnies will respect them and we will see them as our tools for self-defense,, fun, hunting, etc but never a threat.
But there is one group of individual that totally lose their blessed minds when a gun even if the abstract concept of guns is present within a 5 mile radius. They start shaking, blood pressure rises, vein in the neck & forehead pop, speech becomes foul & belligerent to the point of issuing threats of bodily harm (foaming at the mouth sometimes is present.) You know them, I know them.

Ladies and gentlemen, we finally have concrete scientific evidence that Gun Control advocates are Mentally Unstable.  A great milestone has been reached.

Now about that NICS and No-Fly lists that were mentioned in regard keeping dangerous people away from guns and planes and good law-abiding citizens….

R.I.P Wild Bill

wild bill RIP
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say ‘To-morrow is Saint Crispian.’
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say ‘These wounds I had on Crispian’s day.’
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day.

The picture is possibly from the late 1910s. Funny I found it since I just started reading (very belatedly) A Rifleman Went to War and I found out that the militias back then were all volunteer members who had to pay for just about all their equipment and instruction. So basically what you see in the photo are people who were ready to stand for their city, state and country but did not make a dent on the public till.  Back then, if the militia could afford it, they would even have crew served weapons like machine guns in its component.

And to think that today, some idiots freak at the idea of common people being equally equipped as a regular soldier.

Dear Moms Demand: It just rings hollow.

Moms NRA Fear sales

It is almost pitiful to see them clinging to a script overcome by events. When New York and Connecticut send letters telling gun owners to destroy, dispose or turn in what just a few months before were legally bought and allowed by the same people who now demand them, when New jersey is discussing a bill that will include weapons designed in the 1800s just because they carry what legislators suddenly feel is too many rounds and magazines that fall under the same arbitrary definition with no grandfathering clause or amnesty period, we are not being paranoid: We were just plain right.

If anything, it has been your side the one that has been the best advertising for the two products you hate the most: Firearms and the Bill of Rights.
