You have to be a spinmeister to belong to one of America’s anti-gun organizations. Spree shooting in a gun free zone? Spin: it’s the easy access to guns, ammo, accessories, etc. LEO shooting bystanders while attempting to shoot lone gunman? Spin: see, if highly trained officers cannot hit the target, how can some rube of ordinary, gun clinging, self reliant persuasion hope to do any better? Defensive Gun Use? Spin: huh? According to the spinners, researchers Kleck and Lott obviously just made up all the stats demonstrating the value of defensive gun use, the CDC is mistaken about firearms safety, and Vic Stacey was shooting at point blank range. Meanwhile, lurking in the background . . .
The more prominent names in the gun grabber alumni secretly pack a gun, oblivious to the fact that their gun isn’t doing the thinking, or making choices, or simply discharging while in their possession. That example alone escapes them. I guess a weapon in my hands is a different proposition.
I will not suffer the fools who think there are too many self defense shootings in the Stand Your Ground, Castle Doctrine states. I will not sit back quietly while people in Chicago, NYC, DC, California get gunned down or maimed because some pasty politician fantasizes that disarmed means safer.
Anti Gunners! If you wish to walk through life without a spare tire, first aid kit, health insurance, condom or gun, feel free. Better to have it and not need it; the lesson learned is so much easier to absorb than the lesson taught. You push abortion as a woman’s right to choose. Think may be I can choose to rely on myself for my self-defense and my families?
To all those faltering pundits who hate guns because they exist: you are out of touch with the American People. Black, White, Hispanic, all the ethnic diversity you wish to site. They get it. They understand the nature of police and EMS response time. They understand that they are the first responders. They have the first best opportunity to influence the details of an unfolding crime to their advantage.
History and case studies are on my side, and many are aware of them. All the anti gunners bring to the table is the spin, lies and deception. That will work for them only as long as we let it.
