In biology, “mimicry” is “the similarity of one species to another which protects one or both.” Wikipedia also reminds us that “Mimicry is in most cases advantageous to the mimic and harmful to the receiver, but may increase, reduce or have no effect on the fitness of the model depending on the situation.” When it come to the fight for gun rights, gun grabbers who pretend to be Second Amendment supporters hurt actual Second Amendment supporters by opening the door to civilian disarmament. To wit: Dog The Bounty Hunter. Nicki Gostin’s canned Q&A session with Duane Chapman at foxnews.com reveals the “reality star” as a gun rights mimic. To wit . . .
Dog: . . . I’m a gun advocate and I believe everyone can have one to protect themselves, but guns are rampant, it’s like a disease being spread though out the U.S.
FOX411: So how can you be pro-gun?
Dog: I’m not against the gun. I’m against the bullet, the lead bullet, because I’ve used non-lethal weapons for 30 years. I have had to shoot many fugitives and never killed anyone. You have the right to bear arms, which means you can protect yourself, but you don’t have the right to kill people for no reason. The lead, the bullet itself, is ridiculous.
We have made weapons that can drop an elephant in one second. I’m showing cops, homeowners, good people, you don’t have to kill anyone to get them down so you can control them. You can use a non lethal bullet, a rubber bullet and drop anybody. They’re going down, call 911, tell them if they move you’ll shoot them again, so that’s what I’m against.
FOX411: So you’re against automatic weapons that fire off dozens of bullets in a minute?
Dog: Absolutely. I’m for protecting your house. There’s a difference between protecting and sniping. Even hunters can’t use automatic weapons to kill game.
Populists. You can’t live with ’em. You can’t listen to them. They’ll do whatever it takes to appeal to as many people as possible while offending as few as possible. But we, The People of the Gun, are deeply offended, Dog.
Advising all people to counter every violent attack with less (not non) lethal ammo could lead to their grievous bodily harm and death. What’s more, the “no one needs a lead bullet” meme gives aid and comfort to the enemies of Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Of which you are one.
