We Deserve to Be Safe? Geddowdaheah! [VIDEO]

Get off my lawn! And while we’re at it, why do you deserve to be safe? What have you done that earns you that right? Never mind that. Please point to the bit of the United States Constitution that protects your right to be “safe.” The right to keep and bear arms protects your right to defend yourself by force of arms. Or for your parents and others to defend you. But it does NOT create a right to be safe. Nothing can do that. You want to be safe? Show me some military drills, please. And put on some clothes. Jeez.

    The only way to ensure safety is to eradicate liberty. I’ll take danger over servitude.

    Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
    – Benjamin Franklin

    1. avatar DaveL says:

      Not true. You can eradicate liberty, but you’ll never ensure safety.

        Every one of those ladies (those who are old enough) could be carrying while dancing.

      Not true. If the government confiscated every single gun in America, and someone still came into their school with a gun, these girls could just dance their way to safety. That’s what I got from the video. Dance can accomplish anything. Or something.

      1. avatar Lost Down South says:

        Watch the video without sound first. Not only are they not very accomplish dancers..it doesn’t make any sense. But then again, most dance doesn’t.

  2. avatar DaveL says:

    Salesmen always talk about what you “deserve” when they don’t want you to think about the price. It works for motorcycles, it works for politics.

    1. avatar Dustin says:

      It only works on stupid people.

  3. avatar jwm says:

    First step in being safe is to not walk around near nekkid in public. How can you conceal a gun, knife, spare ammo, pepper spray and cell phone in one of those outfits?

    1. avatar Curtis in IL says:

      They could use the Dallas Archer method.

        Thank God for LCR

        1. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

          I was thinking of buying one of those for a motorcycle jacket pocket / backup gun for my GP100 I carry, but I think I’m going to go with a Bond Arms derringer instead. A little heavier than the LCR and without a cylinder gap it should be a little more powerful. Not sure I’d enjoy my full pressure Double Tap .357s out of a 16 oz. revolver.

          But yes, thank God for LCRs and derringers too. Women wear plenty of clothes as it is IMHO.

    DO SOMETHING

    Just think how more effective this video of artistic high schoolers would be if at the end a LEO walked across the frame.

    1. avatar Herb says:

      In the very last frame when they’re all lined up, the girls began contorting like they were going to spell out a one word message, with their bodies as letters.

      For a moment I saw “DISARMALLMEN” or something.

  5. avatar Curtis in IL says:

    This is what we get when our youth have spent their lives listening to liberals telling them they deserve health care, they deserve food stamps, they deserve “affordable” housing, etc. ad nauseam.

    1. avatar Al M. says:

      +1 this and: These young girls are a perfect example of bad parenting and the current public education system in the U.S.. It would be interesting to actually find out how many of these girls were told that to stay on the dance team they could NOT refuse to participate in this action.

  6. avatar Joe R. says:

    Child exploitation. Without it, (D)s might abort all the kids.

  7. avatar Lucas D. says:

    “Well, shit, they started dancing. Okay, America, the jig is up; turn ’em all in.”

    I used to be one, so I know teenagers usually have a hard time understanding the way reality works, but do these boneheads really think public policy is decided by the plot of Footloose?

    1. avatar lowell says:

      You’re showing your age. None of them know what Footloose is.

      1. avatar Chip Bennett says:

        Nobody puts baby in a corner.

        1. avatar Curtis in IL says:

          Either you’re confusing Dirty Dancing with Footloose,
          or you’ve confused me.

        2. avatar Chip Bennett says:

          Dangit. I suck at pop culture references. That, or I need more coffee. My eyes read Footloose, and my brain thought Dirty Dancing.

        3. avatar Desert Ranger Tycho says:

          Isn’t Ironic how Dirty Dancing was all about personal responsibility and class. Low and behold, it was Patrick Swayze who was the responsible one. He was absent from this dance routine….

      2. avatar Lucas D. says:

        Wait…32 is “old” now? Goddammit.

        Well, they did remake Footloose a few years ago, because this newest bumper crop of idiots apparently can’t enjoy a movie if doesn’t include a bunch of gratuitous references to social media. But, as someone who still recalls the plot of Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, I can assure the youth of today that dancing is a great method to save a beloved community youth center from being closed down by greedy land developers, but it’s not a valid way to advance the gun control platform.

      3. avatar Joe R. says:

        A little art imitates movies, imitating mental retardation.

    2. avatar Fred says:

      You have to understand; these teens took the time out of their schedule to do what their mom’s already had scheduled for them at their normal place during the normal time. Ok, so it wasn’t out of their schedule, but they still had to work on this thing they were going to work on anyway. Well, they did have to find someone with a camera and the ability to put in a song. That’s a lot to ask of someone that has to worry about such important things as Bobby liking Susie, but Susie likes Jimmy, and Sally wants to date Bobby. Furthermore, these are teens, the best and brightest of our non-voting, minor-aged population.

      1. avatar anaxis says:

        “That’s a lot to ask of someone that has to worry about such important things as Bobby liking Susie, but Susie likes Jimmy, and Sally wants to date Bobby.”

        That’s the least of their worries nowadays. Now they’re primarily concerned about getting that perfect selfie, racking up facebook/instagram likes, obtaining proper thigh-gap, making it past level 937 on Candy Crush Saga, having a newer smartphone than Sally’s, and figuring out a way to put some Plan B on mommy’s credit-card without her finding out.

        1. avatar Danny Griffin says:

          What in the world is a proper thigh gap?

        2. avatar Another Robert says:

          making sure your legs aren’t too fat so that the thighs smoosh together when you are standing, or too skinny so that there is too much open space between them when you are standing (that makes you a politically-incorrect fat-shamer). Hard to be a proper teenager these days I guess.

        3. avatar tsbhoA.P.jr says:

          mind the gap.

    3. avatar doesky2 says:

      It needed some OWS drum circles to be truly effective.

  8. avatar Don says:

    What they mean is they have a right to *feel* safe, and hey we have all those “Gun free zone” signs for that right? Like you I cannot find that right stated anywhere in the constitution, bill of rights, declaration of independence, emancipation proclamation, congressional record, etc. Next time they all have their hands up surrendering helplessly like that ask them for a cite, yeah?

  9. avatar Fred says:

    In this leftist uprising they bring out their greatest weapon: interpretive dance.
    This is why they want to rid the world of all guns, then their interpretive dance will be the scourge of the battlefield and they can complete their cultural revolution.

    Obviously they haven’t heard the Gorillaz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gonPVgjIF6w

    1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      And there you have it. I cannot think of a better way to illustrate the difference between Progressives and sane people. In the face of violent spree killers: Progressives turn to interpretive dance — sane people arm themselves.

  10. avatar lowell says:

    BRILLIANT! A psycho mass shooter shows up, you’ll going to bore him to death with interpretive dance.

  11. avatar Paul D. says:

    Hopefully some of them will grow up some day. But I’m not optimistic.

  14. avatar James in Florida says:

    Yes….we all want peace and safety.
    But without layer upon layer of sleepless security and without men and women dedicated to do the dirty work to stop the aggressors of our time…..we simply will never have real safety.
    So channel your concerns and dont ask me to do something FOR you….I’m busy protecting myself, my family , my friends and nieghbors if the need should present itself.
    I simply suggest that you DO the same.
    I know if there is another hijacking of a plane in this country…id bet real money that even grandmas are going to war with the idiots.
    Well…time to go at active shooters as well….all good people in our country should just step up the response to these morons.bring it to them!

  15. avatar Branden Riddle says:

    So, you want safety? First things first children. Quit sexualizing yourself by wearing skimpy clothing. Pedophiles seem to love that crap.

  16. avatar TruthTellers says:

    People who walk around believing they have a right to be safe don’t deserve to be even if such a right did exist.

    Lol. Then don’t drive vehicles on public roads. Don’t eat refined sugar. Don’t walk on sidewalks. Don’t engage in sports. Etc. In fact, just stay at home and never leave the house … You deserve to be safe!

    Me and mine deserve to be free.” And we don’t want to eat your force fed safety BS. We don’t want safety, we want freedom.

  20. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

    If it wasn’t for their mention of Tuscon I’d believe that their meaning of ‘do something’ was to get rid of ‘gun free zones’ since all the other shootings occurred in defenseless victim zones. Not sure what they’re getting at. Wouldn’t want to misinterpret their dance.

    1. avatar Lucas D. says:

      See, the message I’m getting from their dance is that the doctor had to pack their skulls with cotton so the tiny, pink jellybean growing from their spinal cord would stop rattling around in there. Isn’t is wonderful how postmodern art is so open to interpretation?

      1. avatar Gov. William J. Le Petomane says:

        I thought they were saying that they all had just turned 18 and were anxious for creepy old guys to leer at them with the music muted.

        1. avatar Lucas D. says:

          Oh, that part goes without saying.

  21. avatar neiowa says:

    Very little that is more silly than a group of teenage girls (except perhaps girl dancers).

    Girls you are safe at school. What “more safe” then ask your teachers to carry.

    Columbine was April 20, 1999. You girls weren’t even BORN and you claim tramatized?

    Sell out your dance instructor who planted/choreographed this drivel. Who is abusing young skulls full of mush in this way?

  22. avatar Ralph says:

    What they deserve is a spanking.

    Any volunteers?

    1. avatar Angryaz says:

      Too late already done…..

      They are 18 right……. you can make underage girls get nearly nekid and prance around on video as long as it’s anti gun….. wooow now I get it

      1. avatar Roymond says:

        “Nearly nekkid”?

        That’s ten times as much cloth as they’d wear at a beach or swimming pool.

    The next time someone is breaking into my house in the middle of the night I’ll make sure to call a group of teenagers to flail their arms around in my lawn.

    1. avatar Danny Griffin says:

      LOL! Some of the youtube comments are good, too.

      “Well you waved your arms around and swung on a swing set. I’m sure that will result in a huge reduction in gun crime.”

      “You ladies want safety, eh. Then why don’t you… I don’t know… take self-defense classes, buy a weapon and learn how to use it. Dancing and whining ain’t gonna do anything.”

  28. avatar I1ULUZ says:

    Their timing is way off, maybe their Ritalin or Prozac is not working well. Once they get out on their own they will realize that the real world is not a safe place no matter how hard you wish upon a star. Or move to NY, they have the SAFE Act, it has to be safe there.

  29. avatar BDub says:

    You are either deliberately straw-manning this, being reactionary, or simply reading into this. I think you’ve been in the trenches too long.

    Nobody said anything about a Right to be safe. Nobody said anything about a Right to deserve to be safe. They simply said “deserve to be safe”. I can’t really disagree with that statement – not where the average non-criminal is concerned. Anyone conducting themselves in society in a civil manner, anyone not initiating violence, or denying the Rights or Property of others, can reasonably be said to be deserving of safety.

    1. avatar Another Robert says:

      I thought about it a bit, and I think you have a point. To the extent that “deserve” does have anything to do with it (see “Unforgiven” reference below), I would say they don’t, to my knowledge, “deserve” to be in peril. But the fact is that, in this vale of tears in which we live, we are all in peril of some threat to our lives to a greater or lesser extent.

  30. avatar Cadeyrn says:

    You ladies want to be safe? You are absolutely not safe from the 1,163,146 violent crimes reported last year throughout the United States according to FBI statistics.

    There were 137 mass shooting victims in 2013, Your chance of being involved with one of those pales compared to the chance of being robbed, raped, beaten, assaulted or kidnapped which is a massive eight thousand, two hundred and ninety-three times higher (8,293).

    So go on, tell people who can do math why you want to be disarmed and unable to defend yourselves against much more likely events.

  33. avatar Ing says:

    I suppose you do deserve to be safe. I’d be glad to help keep you safe, but thanks to a bunch of people who just had to do something (anything…even if it’s stupid…), I can’t.

    Heck, I own some of the best life-protecting, defensive tools humanity has ever invented (hint: we call them “guns”), but if I brought one within 1,000 feet of your school (or my kids’ school), I’d be an instant criminal. And I don’t want to break the law.

    So you, and my own kids too, will have to keep on being helpless, unprotected targets for publicity-craving lunatics when you’re in the government’s care. (At least my wife and I can protect our own kids as we see fit when they get home…but your “do something” crowd would take that away too if they could.)

    So good luck with that safety thing. Talk to your schools and your legislators, because as much as I’d like to, I can’t do a damn thing for any of you. Sucks, but that’s the truth.

    1. avatar Danny Griffin says:

      Get your state’s carry license and you are exempt from the federal school GFZ law in “your” state. Hopefully you don’t live in NJ or someplace awful like that.

      1. avatar Ing says:

        I do have a concealed-carry license, and I put it to good use. Unfortunately the state I live in, although otherwise mostly 2A-friendly, has enshrined schools as magical gun-free zones in state law.

        Where I live, there’s a single SRO who divides his time between 5 schools. Fortunately violent crime is incredibly rare here (our last murder happened in 2005), but violence was rare in Roseburg too…until it wasn’t.

    2. avatar JR_in_NC says:

      “So you, and my own kids too, will have to keep on being helpless, unprotected targets for publicity-craving lunatics when you’re in the government’s care.”

      You know, you can do something about that as well. To put your kids in that situation is a choice. I know a lot of folks don’t like to hear that stated that way, but it is.

      You don’t HAVE to drop them off at the Gun Free Indoctrination Center every day. You choose to.

  34. avatar Joe Nieters says:

    They can have safety (relatively) and we should do something…something like making firearm safety and marksmanship a required part of elementary education.

  35. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    Was that an attempt at soft-core child porn? That’s the only message I got…

  36. avatar Stinkeye says:

    I’m pretty sure that all of those girls are already statistically extremely safe from “gun violence”. None of them appear to be gang members or drug dealers, demographics that are responsible for (and recipients of) the vast majority of “gun violence” in this country.

    1. avatar Pg2 says:

      Thanks for the input Doc, but the 1stA is at least as important as the 2ndA. If teenage girls are goo to participate in anti freedom propaganda, they are not immune to the criticism for doing so.

  41. avatar Aaron says:

    Good Gawd, forget the sophmoric political angle, these chicks are talentless.

  42. avatar Roymond says:

    Of course they deserve to be safe.

    That’s why their parents have the right to keep and bear arms — to work at keeping them safe.

    EVERYONE deserves to be safe. Unfortunately (or fortunately!) we don’t always get what we deserve. Usually, we have to work for it. So after your dance sessions, get your bodies down to the shooting range and practice a sort of exercise that will actually contribute to safety: arms extended, good grip, aim, pull…..

  43. avatar Ryan says:

    Well that’s 3 minutes I’m never getting back.

    1. avatar tmm says:

      I only made it 30 seconds

    Don’t we deserve to be safe from mind numbing, dumbed down social engineering disguised as a grass roots movement?

    1. avatar Another Robert says:

      Reminds me of that terminally-creepy vid that came out when Obama first ran for Pres–titled something like “One afternoon in a neighborhood in [somewhere or other]”…all these brie-and-chablis libs gathered up their kids in a house, with an appropriately ‘diverse’ choir director (female Asian), where the kids lined up and sang a pean to Obama:
      “Obama’s gonna change it
      Obama’s gonna reeee-arrange it…”
      We’re talkin’ like 8 to 10 year-olds here. Supposed to be a spontaneous gathering. Utterly soul-chilling.

      1. avatar Pg2 says:

        Didn’t see that, sounds like a good one.

  46. avatar Chris Poche says:

    Safety is an illusion we create to have a sense of security.

    Even in the fictional utopia of Star Trek it was impossible to guarantee safety. Hundreds of millions died in most of the movies. And thousands of people in each series.

  47. avatar Gunr says:

    I live in Oregon, and every day since the “incident”, in the Register Rag (Register Guard), as well as the local TV news, there has been a lot of “feel good” sessions, much crying and hugging and sorrow. Every one is running around tripping out on grief!
    I get this, but what pisses me off is there’s hardly a word said about how to prevent the next “attack”. The letters to the editor section in the local Rag prints four times the letters from anti gunners, as they do from POTG’s.
    Can you actually believe the school security officers were “unarmed”, and now that they have had a major incident, they still will be unarmed!
    If ever I have seen an example of an ostrich sticking it’s head in the sand, this is it! You can’t fix stupid!
