My ex-wife used to do it to me all the time. No not that. Although yes, that. I’m talking about changing the subject. When I finally forced her into a reality check, she’d simply move on (dot org). No concessions. New topic, new titanic struggle to face the truth. huffingtonpost.com writer Douglas Anthony Cooper’s done the exact same thing with his response to my post, Inside the Twisted Mind of a Gun Grabber Pt. 2. The novelist singularly, spectacularly fails to address the issue at hand—the existence of real life defensive gun uses—and sounds off, instead, on the “issue” of home carry. I could highlight the novelist’s ignorance, hoplophobia and military sycophancy and take him down point by point. Instead, I’ll just counter Cooper’s anti-home carry dietribe [sic] with a story ripped from newschannel5.com . . .
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A scary night for an elderly woman in the Whites Creek area when three men broke into her home.
Metro Police said the woman was sitting on her couch at home on Brick Church Pike around midnight when three men dressed in black kicked in the door.
The men went through her house, and stole her purse and a television. Police said no weapons were seen.
The woman sustained a minor injury, but did not need medical treatment.
The men fled the scene. No arrests have been made.
I know what Cooper’s thinking: what could she have done with a gun? (Unless she was ex-special forces.) It’s that kind of defeatist defense of defenselessness that makes Cooper a craven cretinous curmudgeon. As for his invitation to share a beer, it’s on! Only after some range time.
