Gun Control Groups: The only thing that stops a bad guy is a Twitter hash tag.

So Gun Control groups are up in arms because the NRA pointed out the obvious: Tweeter hash tags will not rescue kidnapping victims nor prevent terrorism.

They link to an article by Eric Lach “NRA Thinks #BringBackOurGirls Hashtag Isn’t 2nd Amendment-y Enough.” He does not say other than quoting Wayne LaPierre, but the title is enough.

LaPierre said in an editorial:

“Tyrants and terrorists, like murderers, rapists and robbers, understand only one thing: force. They laugh at, and are emboldened by, weakness. That is why it is important to preserve and promote the right to keep and bear arms. An armed citizenry deters violence.”

How dare he? Doesn’t he know the power of Almighty HashTags ridding on  mighty unicorns over a field of multicolored shamrocks? With the power of Wishful Thinking and 140 characters, the kidnapped girls will be teleported to the loving arms of their parents….or then again more likely probably not.

But of course, the following little tidbit of news is not being shared by the idiots allegedly caring for what this girls went through and for what many others will also go through:

Hotoro, Nigeria (CNN) — Residents of three villages in northeastern Nigeria took security into their own hands this week, repelling attacks by Boko Haram insurgents and killing more than 200 of them, residents and officials said.

Hundreds of Boko Haram fighters stormed the villages of Menari, Tsangayari and Garawa in the ethnic Shuwa-dominated Kalabalge District on Tuesday. Boko Haram — the group responsible for the kidnapping of nearly 300 schoolgirls from the same region — was met with stiff resistance as locals put up a fierce fight, witnesses said.

How about that? Armed resistance dealt with the bad guys! Who in his Twitter Idled mind would have thunk it? And what do the rest of Nigerians want? Another exclusive Almighty HashTag? Nope, they want guns to fight the Boko Haram. Why?

A security source told SaharaReporters that Nigerians resident in many remote areas of the North-East seemed to have decided that the best way to repel incessant attacks by murderous gangs of Boko Haram insurgents was to take their destiny in their hands.

A member of the vigilante group involved in Friday’s ambush told Saturday Tribune that Nigerian soldiers appeared unable or unwilling to wage an effective war against the insurgents.

“They (soldiers) seem to be helpless and to fear the Boko Haram warriors who terrorise us here. But we are not afraid. They are men like us, and we are tired of folding our arms and allowing them to kill us, our wives and our children,” he said. (Written By CKN NIGERIA)

Terrorist on the loose, ineffective government and scared soldiers do not make for a happy lifestyle and people are just sick of that.

At the end of the day, a 7.62×39 will trump a hash tag.

  1. The Mexican and Nigerian “vigilantes” are kinda throwing a monkey wrench in the whole disarm the people for their own protection meme.

    Now that I think about it, it seems that the gun control orgs must be racists and hate Mexicans because they want to stop the flow of guns into Mexico. The Drug Trade Organizations easily ship drugs north, they can easily ship guns south (or manufacture guns themselves), while the militias don’t have the resources to do that. Yeah, gun control is racist, still.

    1. In the 90s, Shinning Path was the nastiest guerrilla/terrorist group in South America. They were well hidden and in control of their local jungle patch rendering the efforts of the Peruvian Army useless. President Fujimori, on a rare moment of intelligence, decided to arm the local population with plain old shotguns and pretty much withdraw the army to their bases. In less than 2 years, Shinning Path ended as they got their asses kicked by a bunch of Inca indians with buckshot and had to move to urban areas where regular police and intelligence work ended up capturing Abimael Guzman, the leader. After that Shinning Path was never the force that once was and they are now just an organized crime group involved with drug trafficking.

    2. @Bill Baldwin,

      Not just “vigilantes.” “Vigilantes” with “illegal guns.” Neither Mexicans nor Nigerians are allowed to own any handguns, anything semi-auto, or anything “military-style” (which could include bolt-action rifles – they were standard military issue once).

      I haven’t seen any of these militia stories in the mainstream media – not even the bane-of-all-things-Progressive (*snort*) Fox News. [sarcasm] Gosh, can anyone think of why that might be? [/sarcasm]

  2. “At the end of the day, a 7.62×39 will trump a hash tag.”

    Doesn’t do the beginning of their day much good either.

    But at least the Nigerian people are learning/remembering how to defend themselves and taking justifiable pride about it. Of course if people like Lach and the illegal nagging mayor moms had their choice, Nigerians would be forced to die for the #gunsense sham.

  3. Stop me if I’m wrong, but if you’re posting a story from a site called “Talking Points Memo,” isn’t that basically admitting that you have no original thoughts? That someone else is writing The Narrative for you?

    Seems that way to me. 🙂

    1. The NRA is responsible not only of the Foreign policy but also baldness, global warming, low water levels in Texas, high water levels in Florida and the change in the flavor of the Twinkies.
