Everytown Twist

 

In the aftermath of tragedies, the gun lobby pushes a fallacy that mass shootings only take place in gun-free zones.

Only take place? No, but about 90+%, yes.

This is a twisted form of victim blaming

No, it is called statistics. It has numbers and stuff.

as it effectively suggests that innocent people living their daily lives – praying in houses of worship, doing their jobs at military facilities, seeing a movie – are to blame for their own deaths because they were not armed to the teeth in places that anyone should feel safe.

Got it wrong. we are not suggesting that they are to blame. We are saying that blood-thirsty sadists like your Boss Bloomberg are to blame for encourage and force people into hunting preserves for the criminally insane while he walks around with a phalanx or armed bodyguards.

We shouldn’t all need to be armed at every hour of the day to be safe in America. So, let’s just put this falsehood to rest.

Does that mean your boss and Shannon Watts will mingle with us, Little People without their Pistol-Packing Traveling Companions?

And I am very sorry for Lt. Col. Read’s loss, but if he has a complaint, please address it to the Virginia Tech honchos who guaranteed students and parent that a Gun Free VT was safe.

 

“I’m sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly’s actions because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus.”
Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker in January 2006 after a Campus Carry measure was defeated in the Virginia Assembly.
Seng-Hui-Cho proved Mr. Hincker’s statement was deadly wrong on January 16, 2007

And for the Media people at Everytown, an oldie and classic:

Considering the previous post showing the innate racism of Everytown, I hope they don’t feel insulted because I am dedicating them a video of a black person singing.

  1. “We shouldn’t all need to be armed at every hour of the day to be safe in America.”

    Shouldn’t have to wear a seatbelt if you choose not to either, but it sure makes me feel safer when I do.

  2. It takes a special kind of stupid to claim that a numeric statistic is a lie, and a special kind of evil to claim that the person pointing out a correlation is part of the problem.

    I still have my doubts that Col. Read was the parent of any of the children slaughtered in the Newtown incident. They were killed alright, and it was horrible, but I’m one of the people who suspects it was a false-flag attack. That the shooter was encouraged and funded by plants from the anti-gun crowd.

    1. Well, we can tell your grasp of evidence from your inability to read what’s literally in front of you. Hint: the Colonel didn’t have any relatives at Newtown, because his kid was shot at Virginia Tech.

      1. Ah. So she was.

        I assumed they’d be harping on a more recent shooting. In that case, perhaps someone should remind the good Colonel that most of the people who died at Virginia Tech did so AFTER the police had arrived.

        But that’s OK, because the police will totally protect you.

  3. They may never understand, because it doesn’t fit their narrative, but we still have to keep repeating that: we are not advocating for Everyone to be armed. We never have said that.

    We are only pointing out that, if there are no “gun-free zones,” the Bad Guy will know that Someone in that place MAY be armed, and ready to shoot back. (Miguel, I loved your poisoned M&Ms graphic. We should explore as many ways to tell the truth as we can.)

    We only are pointing out that it is absolutely insane to advertise the fact that NO ONE in the “zone,” who is a law-abiding “good guy,” will be armed. We are only pointing out that the Bad Guy sees the “zone” sign and thinks: “undefended target-rich environment.” We are only trying to point out that a nutcase intent on murder doesn’t give a damn about breaking a few minor laws to do it. I’s so blindingly clear to us.

    The only reason that it is not clear to them is that it doesn’t fit the Narrative. But, we can focus on open minded fence-sitters, and maybe get them to see logic — because we will almost never convert a True Believer.

  4. VT administrators didn’t promise parents that their children would be safe on campus. They promised that they would FEEL safe. It is not the same thing, but it is what liberals are all about – doing what makes them feel better, active, safer. It’s completely irrelevant to them whether or not those feelings actually reflect reality.
