This was a copy/paste from a friend in Facebook who got it from somewhere else there. It pissed me off and I want to share the emotion with you.
“Friends, I don’t want to break the 72 Hour Rule, but PRETTY PLEASE WITH SUGAR ON TOP stop spouting the “good guy with a gun” mantra on the Texas church shooting.
Good morning and fuck you. You don’t like “good guy with a gun”? Guess what? Neither does the idiots in Gun Control. It makes them mad that a simple sentence reflecting so much truth can destroy their business
There were good guys with guns there whose firearm did nothing, good guys there whose firearm actively endangered others for a bit, a very good man whose gun didn’t get in the fight fast enough who died, and another very good man who not only had a gun but a high level of skill in using that gun who actually made a positive difference.
Ah! I can smell the wafting scent of the elitist Tacticool asshole. You can always tell because they resent that Ma and Pa Smith have guns with them but have never taken a class of Ninja SWAT Shooting While Rappelling From a Helicopter.
The first usher who the murderer was yelling at may well have been able to dive on that shotgun and stop him with no gun, had he been trained and prepared to do so and known the principles of controlling someone with a long gun.
You know? This shit won’t happen to Tacticool Boy because he is always ready, his awareness never fails. He is a deadly pistoleer that nobody will catch with his pants down. “He shall never be ambushed!” is his motto while the spirit of Wild Bill Hickok laughs at this guy’s conceit. And by the way, criticizing the guy who gave his life in defense of the parishioners because he did not know some Stephen Segal Fauxkido move is really low.
“The only thing that will stop a madman bent on killing people with a shotgun is a good person with the trained skill set and mindset to do so. If he’s at any distance, a gun really helps him do that.”
True, but not everybody has a couple of thousand bucks to spare and a week to take off from work so they can go to a (your?) Tacticool class on how to roll off an SUV at 45 mph while shooting at all paper targets in the ‘A’ Zone. The bes they can do is go to a square range, shoot a couple of boxes at a B-27 target. Of course, you could always offer free classes to the unwashed Gun Owners or at least a very discounted Groupon.
But two things: 1. That doesn’t make a good slogan to banter about and tribal signal with, and 2. You can’t buy a trained skill set and mindset at the gun store, you have to Do The Work and earn that.”
1-No and that is the point about slogans, particularly this very successful one and 2- as a matter of fact, you sound like a douchebag who would support laws forcing Gun Owners to take 3 days worth of classes before even owning a gun in order to line up your pockets.
PS: Next time, before engaging on a sales pitch for your “academy” at least let the bodies cool off and be buried and the families grieve.
