“To be honest, we did not expect this kind of media attention. There’s a lot of demonization going around about people carrying guns and guns in general, and not everybody who open carries … has an evil agenda. You don’t have to be afraid. It’s part of our society. It’s always going to be part of our society.” – Byron Hennon in Protesters carry guns, decry Trump as RNC opens [at usatoday.com]

      So they are decrying Trump but they are gun owners? Morons of the lowest order..

      1. avatar Jean says:

        We must protect the 2nd Amendment, yes. But thinking Trump would make for a good POTUS? Pot. Kettle. Black.

        1. avatar Red in CO says:

          Trump would be a TERRIBLE POTUS, of course. But he would probably be better than Hilary. Probably.

    And give the kid a trophy for making his bed… Whether he makes it or not because punishment is bad.

    I have a problem with the CDC categorizing youth with ages 15-24. Seriously if you can go off to war at 18 they need to change this category.

    This is what is wrong with ‘mercia. Click on my user name for the truth.

    “children should not use high powered semi-automatic guns under any circumstances”…

    Well, yeah… Everybody knows that children are much better used with crew-served weapons where their small size is less of an issue.

    1. avatar Robert w. says:

      I would reccomend self propelled as well, they’re too small to move them on their own. An Abrams tank would fit the bill nicely.

    2. avatar Jeff O. says:

      Plus they learn teamwork!

  6. avatar MiniMe says:

    “Thug life” and a big percentage of rap songs out there are not a positive influence on kids either.
    Why don’t you and your proglib ilk go after those proven negative influences? Oh yeah, ‘cuz it doesnt fit yer idiotic narrative.

    Please do the world a favor and STFU.

  7. avatar Jomo says:

    He got it half-right. Parents should also teach their kids about the value of hard work, commitment, and integrity and maybe throw in a dollop of personal responsibility. I see a whole pile of little Gavin Longs out there who think the world owes them something and who lose their $#!+ when things don’t go the way they think life should. Maybe some sense of personal responsibility would keep some of these young/old black men/women from eating bullets over a minor traffic stop. In other words, if busted speeding, take your ticket and fight it in court rather than slugging the poor working-class schmuck who got sent to write it.

    1. avatar 16V says:

      The street cops I know make between $70K and $100K. Not the definition of ‘working class’.

  8. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

    Hmm… all that psycho babble and not a word about missing fathers…

  9. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    “To get good at anything requires practice”

    Me to daughter- front sight, front sight, front sight…. Press, press, press, front sight…
    Bang!
    Great shot. Now bring up the pistol a little higher. Bring the gun up to your eye, not your eye down to the gun. Here’s a fresh mag. Go again.

      My thoughts exactly. Restraint, good judgement, kindness… sounds to me like he wants us getting our kids involved in shooting sports!

    Alan,

    Shooting guns at the range is super fun family entertainment. There is nothing violent about it and no violence occurs. Just family having fun, shooting targets with a multitude of black rifles, the occasional deer or hog and a carcass sizzling on the grill. Amazing non-violent family fun.

  11. Obviously this guy has never shoot before. “Rather than teach violence as a means to solve problems, parents should focus their children on cultivating restraint, good judgment, kindness, generosity and respect toward others.” Teaching kids to shoot and hunt teaches them all of what he was talking about.

    Halfway through reading the quote, the page refreshed and now its a different article here. Whats up with that?

      Thought Police…

    2. avatar DickDanger says:

      Good ,someone else noticed it. I thought the Adjustment Bureau paid me a visit.

    3. avatar Robert Farago says:

      Dan didn’t realize I had blogged that article. Full exposition later today. Your comments always welcome.

    4. avatar Katy says:

      Thanks for pointing this out. The comments above yours had me baffled.

  13. avatar Mike says:

    …and at the same time, it incentivizes doing nothing! Win-win!

  14. avatar DerryM says:

    This Delamater guy is delusional. Imam Obama should send him to Iraq to explain all this “good stuff” to ISIS because then they will surely want to stop killing us…or at least make a beheading video we can all enjoy…
    This guy HAD to have sat down and planned-out how to be this disconnected from reality.
    The best a Parent can do is teach their children that there is a balance in reality between peace and violence, as with everything else one has to deal with in their Life.

  15. avatar Shire-man says:

    I run into a lot of people who assume any kinetic action whatsoever is “violence.” Some even go so far as to equate virtual kinetic action with an act of “violence.”
    I saw one woman berate her elementary school aged child for being “violent” because he was sitting in a chair reading a superhero comic. She snatched it from his hands and screamed in his face “I taught you better than that!”
    She did not see the irony.

    1. avatar Omer Baker says:

      Is that irony or ignorance? Or both? I guess it can be both.

  16. avatar formerwaterwalker says:

    Yup-always got ‘dem gunz. Whatever…

  17. avatar Curtis in IL says:

    “Shortly before 6 p.m., a group of 10 men describing themselves of the West Ohio Minutemen walked through the streets downtown openly carrying rifles and pistols, which is legal.”

    … and no one got shot! Imagine that!

    This is an environment I have no desire to be in. The streets are full of people who loathe each other, and in some cases hate each other. People are there representing vile, hate-filled domestic terrorist groups who advocate violence, like BLM, the “New” Black Panthers and others.

    And many of them are armed.

    And no one got shot. Can it really be true? An armed society is a polite society?
    Hold your breath and pray for peace. We’ll have our answer soon enough.

    Why did you change the Quote of the Day? It was something about kids earlier.
