Quote of the Day: Dude Disarmament Edition

Luke O'Neil courtesy twitter.com

“Fine then. Let’s go with that. All women should, in fact, be armed. Where I part ways with the right here, however, is that I think if we’re going to agree to that, then we’ll need to disarm all men. Men, as the DOJ numbers point out, commit 90% of all homicides. As we’ve seen in nearly every sensational mass shooting that’s been in the news in recent years, men are simply far too emotionally unstable to be trusted with such a powerful tool of violence. If we can’t agree to get rid of the guns, then it’s time we put our collective protection in the hands of those who we can likely trust to make more rational decisions about where to point them.” – Luke O’Neil in ‘Liberal Compromise on Guns: Arm All the Women’ [at mediate.com]

    Standard liberal policy. Emasculate the men.

      Drilled into all students from kindergarten through grad school.

      A conservative parents main job today is to deprogram the leftist crap out of their kids when they come home from school. I’m saving my money to help put the grandkids through charter or faith based schools.

      The only one bright spot for the future is that conservative kids have higher birth rates. But that’s a long cycle to come to fruition. Country will be pretty well “fundementally transformed” by then.

      1. avatar Jim R says:

        What good will having more kids do if they’re being pushed through the same liberal “education” system as the rest?

        1. They will have a deisdain for all statist from the botom of their heart.

        Even better…don’t send to “school” at all.

        Homeschooling is worth every penny “lost” in lack of second income, and schooling parent CAN work at home anyway.

          +1 On the homeschooling.

      Emasculate the men AND project the belief that women never do anything wrong.

      Even though Feminism is clearly at the bottom of many things that are currently going wrong.

      This is not even to mention their violent tendencies or touch on whether most of them are trustworthy.

      1. avatar slicer87 says:

        What a strawman argument, there are plenty of violent women in the world. I knew the antis are self hating white knights.

        Sadly there are plenty of wacko femnazis who would love this idea and use it to “purge the male gender” in their words and this Luke would probably be the first to step up and ask them to please kill him.

      “Talk about a simpleton’s take on a complex issue.”

      That’s kind of their schtick. Ban guns = peace/no murder/Utopia. At a basic level, it’s simplistic, naive, and shows a complete lack of understanding of human nature.

    Great idea!

    And we can surgically castrate all males at birth…

    I mean, by and large, rape is committed by males.

    It only stands to reason every male is a potential rapist.

    If your male parts are not part of the solution, your male parts are part of the problem.

    1. avatar William says:

      Don’t give them any ideas!

      1. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

        It’s already being attempted via social conditioning. My solution is just more of a direct approach.

    2. avatar notalima says:

      Oh, look, fun with statistics.

      So, by this scholar’s logic I supposed he’d have to agree with the following:

      According to the FBI’s 2011 Crime Stats, of crimes committed by those under 18, 68.5% of robbery arrests are African Americans, while African Americans account for approximately 12.6% of the total US population (2010 US Census). Well, any sensible statistician could quickly surmise that such a large percentage of robberies committed by such a small percentage of the population is an issue.

      Solution: Lock up all African American teens. Robberies would decrease by almost 70% by those under 18. (The stats don’t break down by gender, so inferences cannot be made therein.) Incidentally, extending that logic to ‘all’ ages, the number would be just shy of 56% of total robberies. But, hey, only a ‘small’ percentage of the population after all (another argument that gun grabbers like to trot out…a ‘small’ percentage of the population…)

      /end sarcasm

      No, the above is not my position, however, it demonstrates ‘fun with statistics’ and how the left can make whatever outrageous claims they like. All while they can claim those nice government numbers to ‘back them up’.

      /end disclaimer since at least someone isn’t going to read the whole thing and cry ‘racist’!!!

    3. avatar C says:

      You’re joking, but they actually think like this. It’s gospel on university campuses that all men are rapists.

      1. avatar Martin B says:

        OK, so all women hate sex. So all the ladies who banged on my door or phoned up late at night begging for sex were only masochists asking for more abuse. Funny how they always came back for more. I think there’s more than a little hairy legged indoctrination going on here. And guess what, it’s an actual industry, where lesbians get paid to spread hatred of men. Sponsored by your tax dollars. Academic standards indeed.

        1. avatar slicer87 says:

    Worse than the last democrat/liberal compromise on a persons rights. At least then they gave a three-fifths compromise on how much of a persons you were.

      Back then, the Democrats were hardly liberal or progressive.

      Still, ouch.

      1. avatar Drew says:

        They became progressive when the steady progress of civil rights and public opinion dictated that they had to resort to laws like gun control and prohibition in an attempt to undermine blacks and immigrants rights. They became liberal when they realized Kennedy’s popularity with black America gave them real power again.

        1. avatar slicer87 says:

          Sexual assualts committed by women are greatly more under-reported than assualts committed by men due to the greater shame society puts on male victims. Female victims are treated bad enough and they often don’t report sexual attacks against them, male victims are treated even worse than female victims and are much less likely to report attacks because it goes against male gender roles. This is why sexual assaults reports are pretty skewed and we really don’t have a good picture of the ratio really.

  29. avatar Kyle in CT says:

    Makes sense. Somewhere south of 10,000 men committed a crime, therefore somewhere north of 150 million men should lose their constitutional rights. Nice plan.

  30. avatar juliesa says:

    Of course he’s wrong, but golf clap for him acknowledging that women do benefit from owning guns. Most gun grabbers can’t or won’t learn that fact. Right now they’re playing into that election year #WaronWomen bullshit by pushing fake stats that show that guns are always bad for women, and much more harmful to women than to men.

  33. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

    If this guy really wants to get into it, then let’s get into it and really parse those DOJ stats to see which demographic groups are responsible for disproportionate amounts of violent crimes. Then let him sign his name to an article advocating selective confiscation on that basis. Let’s lay bare the full racist legacy and urgency of civilian disarmament, shall we?

    As for arming women, I’m all for it, but it’s not my choice to make. That it’s a woman’s choice, or anyone’s individual choice, to decide whether to arm themselves is the issue. Liberals cannot seem to separate the right to choose, from the actual choice they want people to select. Liberals figure since you won’t make the right choice on your own, that you shouldn’t have the right to choose in the first place. I find that freedom infringement an affront to human dignity.

    I propose a new law:

    Ivory towers are now ‘Gun Control Policy-Making Free Zones’.

    It has been shown time and again that people who live in and/or operate out of ivory towers are capable of doing irreparable harm on a national level through the proposal of radical, sweeping policy changes.

    This is especially true on the topic of gun control, which is in itself an insult to the founding principles and spirit of our nation and violates one of the amendments of our very Bill of Rights.

    It is with a heavy heart that I hereby propose that people who have demonstrated themselves to be completely disconnected from reality – apparently to the point of near-insanity – should have no power to influence or initiate measures of gun control policy.

  36. avatar former water walker says:

    Ummm…aren’t the VAST MAJORITY of “crimes of violence” committed by men who can’t legally own or carry a gun? Law abiding, legal gun owners make up an infinitesimal % of violent crimes. But it knew that…BTW ( unfortunately ) goofy reminds me a lot of my 37 year old son who lives with his grandparents-hipster musician, thinks I’m a gun nut, has no life & has bought into every leftwing progressive BS idea one can imagine. And people who call me “dude” are total idiots.

  37. avatar Puyallup devil doc says:

    By this logic, shouldn’t he also say that minorities shouldn’t be allowed to own guns? Anyway.. My gf carries far more frequently than I do (I work for the gov, can’t carry to work or leave it in the truck), and she is definitely not to be messed with. I’m a modern man, I have no problem letting her defend me. Lol..

  38. avatar Nighthawk says:

    People like him fail to realize that while 90% of the homicides are committed by men, a good majority aren’t random acts of violence. There is a purpose behind them. Not one we consider acceptable, moral, or legal, but never the less purpose driven by criminals. To eliminate a criminal competitor, revenge, affirmation of power, a means to an end like armed robbery, etc. etc. Killing to feel it, that’s quite rare and even then has nothing to do with handling or owning a firearm. The argument being made that women are more *rational* is a fallacy. All you can glean from the evidence is men are more likely to be involved in violent criminal activity. Violent criminal activity existed far before firearms, and isn’t made more dangerous with their usage unless the population is completely disarmed.

  39. avatar Accur81 says:

    If one were to apply his “reasoning” to other areas:

    1. Most cops who use excessive force are men – eliminate male cops
    2. Most troops who use excessive force against enemy prisoners are men – eliminate male troops
    3. Most road rage incidents are male drivers – ban giving driver’s licenses to males.

    As with most anti-gun arguments, the “logic” falls to pieces when applied to a non-gun area. My pro-gun, pro-freedom logic is much better: punish the criminal, not the victim. Further, respect the right of potential and actual victims to defend themselves against potential and actual criminals. Gender doesn’t matter, justice does.

    1. avatar Anonymous says:

      No – they just need to eliminate “men.” Have people only birth females. Birth a male absolutely only when necessary and eliminate him when his usefulness is over. That is the solution people. A global population of gun-free lesbians.
