The fault, as it were, isn’t the responsibility of the gun control advocates who are fighting mightily against the power of the NRA and other like-minded organizations. This one lies at the feet of the broad mass of nonprofits. After the tragedy at Sandy Hook, when the president assigned vice president Joe Biden to lead a national task force on gun violence, that was the moment for the nonprofit sector writ large to come to grips with the nonsensical system in the U.S. that allows assault rifles to be widely available, guns to be purchased with limited or no background checks in many cases, and sales of silencers and sawed-off shotguns.

Gun Control stalls not because it makes sense but because it is emotion-based and built around lies. It also uses the best (worst) propaganda tools of the Prejudice Machine which have a very limited life span, specially in the era of the Internet where people can easily fact-check any data provided by any group.

Let’s check some of the other stuff Mr. Cohen says:

It is so strange that the American movement for gun control has flickered and come close to disappearing despite the ubiquity of gun violence in the U.S. and its resurgence in Western Europe.

Perhaps he missed the fact that in the Charlie Hebdo attack, even the cops were unarmed and got killed by armed terrorists, so right there the principle of a Gun Free world goes down the drain. And I am sure it was not only the “gunnies” that saw that video and said “If instead of a camera, somebody had a gun, they would have stopped that shit right there.” Would have stopped in all reality? Who knows? Maybe, maybe not, but at least there was a chance whereas Gun Free Cops had none.

Supporters’ contentions that guns on campus would deter sexual assault do not differ much from arguments that making guns more widely available would help Americans stand up against jihadist threats. Do gun proponents really imagine shoppers in the Mall of America engaged in pitched gun battles with terrorists?

We hope that the Government does its job and stops the threats before they actually strike us here. But we are also aware that the same Government is riddle with incompetents wrapped legalistic BS so yes, I want anybody who wants it with the ability to face Jihad Pete if he comes to do mischief at Pier One. Incoming fire tends to throw a monkey wrench on the best laid plans of Jihadist and other Vermin.

Imagine if the three young Muslims who were murdered in North Carolina, ostensibly due to a fight over a parking space, hadn’t had to deal with a Craig Hicks loaded to the gills with assault rifles. He’d be no less demented, but lacking the ability to pump bullets into their skulls, Hicks might have had to actually talk to them rather than executing them point blank.

And here is probably what hurts Gun Control the most: Lies.  As far as I have looked for, there is no mention in any credible source that Craig Hicks used any type of assault rifle. In fact, we don’t know if he owned one. And the victims of this asshole were shot once each in the head and were not pumped full of bullets. That is why I keep asking the Opposition: If your cause is so righteous, why lie?

The answer is because if they told the truth, the demise of the Gun Control Movement would be one hundred times faster.

  1. You know as well as I, they are all about emotion, not those pesky facts. If they had to actually HAVE facts, you’re right, they’d be in the toilet!

  2. “Do gun proponents really imagine shoppers in the Mall of America engaged in pitched gun battles with terrorists?”

    There’s another ’embellishment’ that often sneaks under our radar, this concept that we want a pitched battle. A shoot and scoot skirmish to get away, or an ambush when we’re trapped in a store backroom, is what we’re envisioning. But I know that’s a tall order to expect the anti-rights crowd to admit such a thing as opposed to their typical histrionics.

  3. The thing about a pitched battle at the Mall of America- we don’t have to look that hard to find out that the LAST pitched battle at a mall was set up by a group of people that HAS VOWED TO DO THE SAME THING AT THE MALL OF AMERICA.

    Do we want a pitched battle? No. But it beats the shit out of the other option, which is a massacre at the Mall of America.

  4. So many logic fails. They truly have a distant relationship with reality, human nature, world events, laws concerning ownership, sales, and restrictions for firearms and the operation and manual of arms for most firearms. The ignorance is deep and wide. Yet, they think they can and should legislate and control firearms. Hubris.

    For instance, I bet if a lot of women were armed, then college age rapists might lose some of their incentive.

    We saw what even a few armed citizens can do against attackers in a mall in South Africa.

    The list is long for the failures of the vaunted Gun Free Zone.

    No, we don’t have assault rifles (i.e. select fire intermediate cartridge weapons) and assault weapons do not even really exist because their definition is based on cosmetic details while their mechanics are identical to a huge variety of long guns.

    Finally, the non-profits and the VPOTUS failed because their message is stale, false and not desired by the vast majority of the population. So, yes they lie all the time and they continue to have zero credibility. However, like the cockroach, evil ideas that should die continue on such as communism, nationalized health care, big government, gun control, racism, and islam.

  5. “Do gun proponents really imagine shoppers in the Mall of America engaged in pitched gun battles with terrorists?”

    I hope I have my logical fallacy incorrect,

    Does this mean that YOU really imagine terrorists in the Mall of America in a gun battle with unarmed shoppers?

    Call it mutual projection, fair enough. If I am wrong nothing happens. If they are wrong people die and they are proven to be more than wiling to give the guest team more support than the home team.
