I caught this OpEd in the Alabama Reflector, because I still get hit with local Alamaba news.

It’s a syndicated column from an idiot who is the editor of the Colorado Newsline, which reminds me why Southerners treated carpetbaggers the way they did.

Stop tolerating gun extremists. Shame them.

America is a country-size arsenal.

There are 20% more guns in the U.S. than people. Americans are estimated to own 393 million of the 857 million guns in the world, or almost half — 46% — of all civilian guns.

And the obscene ubiquity of firearms in the U.S. explains much about why the country is a killing field without parallel in the developed world. Anyone who has studied the matter arrives at a simple conclusion: More guns means more death.

This right here is where the arguemtns ends.

The anti-gun crowd never, ever, ever acknoleges gun deaths at the hands of the govmernment.

The killing fields are forests in Poland, Ukraine, Russia, and elsewere in Eastern Europe where Nazi and Soviet troops executed millions of civilians.  These were unarmed people who were genocided, but because they were killied by the government, their deaths don’t count.

Reform is thwarted by cowardice, corruption and craziness. As young children are slaughtered in their classrooms, conservative officials desecrate their memory by suggesting their deaths are the price of freedom. As mass shootings become a daily occurrence, gun-rights zealots double down on the bloodthirsty fantasy that more guns is the answer.

The project must start with a shift away from tolerance of gun extremists. Acceptance must cease of these murder-mongers in the media, government, public gatherings and the home next door. No longer can their fanaticism be indulged or their rigidity accommodated. Society must stigmatize them, and they must be rendered culturally odious. Only when gun absolutists become social pariahs can the nation start to establish comprehensive reform, allowing community members to attend schools, shop at grocery stores and visit nightclubs without fear of being torn to shreds in a blast of bullets.

This is social terrorism.  Has this tactic ever been effective?  Will this in any way cause gun owners who fundmentally believe in the Right to Keep and Bear Arms to change their positions or dig in their heels?

The Founding Fathers got it profoundly wrong on slavery and discrimination against women. Their next biggest mistake was the Second Amendment. But unlike other errors that the country has tried to come to terms with, society has only compounded the harm that came from the Constitution’s misfire concerning arms. The amendment should be repealed, yet Americans have so romanticized guns, and the judicial branch has imposed so permissive an interpretation of the law, that the country seems consigned to unthinkable bloodshed.

See, because the Founders were imperfect in some things, everything they did is wrong, bad, and needs correcting.

This is the immature logic of the radical.  Anyone who espouses that attitude can be summarily dismissed.  That is how you get  Great Leap Forward.

Given his desire to Struggle Session gun owners, I assume that’s what we wants.

The Second Amendment won’t be repealed anytime soon, but Americans can at least begin a cultural shift and re-imagine what the law means. Society should no longer tolerate the kind of depraved fanaticism that allows someone like U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert to tweet a Christmas greeting with her young sons brandishing weapons of war. It should dismiss from the public conversation anyone who advocates the hell-summoning lie that the presence of more guns will prevent gun violence. It should humiliate without restraint those costume-wearing soldier wannabes who show up with their shooters at rallies. It should elevate judges — unlike the present conservative majority justices of the U.S. Supreme Court — who don’t view the Second Amendment as a national suicide pact.

“Let me engage in a sexual fantasy where people I hate irrationally get stomped into the mud by Jackboots and hate mobs.”

Castigation must befall anyone who obstructs gun violence prevention. Lawmakers should continue to enact measures to protect constituents from the daily massacres their communities suffer. But members of those communities can participate in the greater reform project by shaming gun proponents wherever they show themselves.

That’s right, attack the law abiding gun owners.

And he wonders why we have become unwilling to compromise and more adamant in our resolve.

He has no desire to actually reduce crime, he had identified an ideological enemy who must be destroyed.

His desire to ruin gun owners is proof why gun owners want to keep their guns.

  1. “…killing field without parallel in the developed world.”
    Gee, I wonder why he uses the term “developed” world?
    And, I wonder what countries he includes in the “developed” world? Is Mexico included? Brazil? Doubt it.
    The rest of his babbling is nothing other than childish ramblings. He might as well have written “you are just a big old meanie” over and over again. It carries the same amount of weight.

  2. The “daily massacres” are among the LAST group the gun grabbers ever go after. Maybe if they enforced the law against felons in possession?

  3. No comments, shock.

    Almost no interaction at all on that paper’s twit feed. Except for this article and it’s 100% opposed. https://twitter.com/ALReflector/status/1633180916972670979

    Only one comment on their FB post. Negative

    The ‘Colorado Newsline’ has ttwitt has zero interaction and didn’t post this. No post on their FB feed either.

    But remember, 10 gazillion percent of Americans support gun control.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
