I make no apologies for [metaphorically] targeting Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America jefe Shannon Watts. Charting every misstep in her endless campaign of civilian disarmament is fun, educational, politically important and, yes, profitable. More than that, thanks to an obsequious mainstream media, Ms. Watts is America’s most prominent and therefore dangerous anti-gunner. But there are times when I tire of removing obscenities aimed in her direction – however much I understand the anger and frustration engendered by her anti-gun agitprop. This, however, is not one of them. At least not until the comments section. The following email, you see, is all about the obscenity . . .
I was reading about Shannon Watts’s armed bodyguards, and thought to myself does that make her a gun whore? If the gun itself is evil then why is it okay to pay someone to be armed? Maybe my analogy is way off, but it seems to me like they are saying, “sex is bad, but if you pay someone to have sex it’s okay.” It is not acceptable to be armed yourself for protection against criminals; it is acceptable to pay people to be armed for protection against law abiding CCP holders. I understand this is the nature of hypocrisy, but there has to be a term we can use to help demonstrate that (incendiary as it may be).
Did I just publish that? I did. And I’d appreciate it of you keep your comments relatively clean. Somewhat respectful? Clever rather than smutty? Yeah, let’s go with that.
