Brother Dowell to Gun Control Advocates: Is There Not Something Chaotically Wrong in Your Mind? by Robert Farago | Nov 24, 2011 | 21 comments facebook twitter linkedin email [HTML1] comments Cornelius says: November 24, 2011 at 11:53 Amen! Reply Varmint Hunter says: November 24, 2011 at 11:54 That was a bit painful. Brother Dowell’s message was correct, but the delivery was difficult to endure. Homiletics, Brother, homiletics! Practice your delivery before pressing “RECORD.” Reply Jason says: November 24, 2011 at 16:01 That style of delivery may not be common in your church, but I’ll bet it is in his. I quite enjoyed it. Reply Joe nobody says: November 24, 2011 at 12:10 He said violence 37 times Reply Eric S. says: November 24, 2011 at 12:45 Pretty well stated but as Varmint Hunter said, he does need to rehearse or organize his thoughts before starting the camera rolling. Also, having a better room to record in with some sound absorbing material (as opposed to the cinderblock behind him) would make the audio more clear. However, not all YouTube-ers can afford good equipment and if that’s the only way for him to get his message out, more power to him. Reply TTACer says: November 24, 2011 at 14:17 Nice 1911. Reply Tim McNabb says: November 24, 2011 at 16:00 I think it would be cool if community leaders would begin to introduce responsible gun ownership and use – the positive gun culture – into their neighborhoods. Reply William says: November 24, 2011 at 17:35 Our church has had shooting days which include introducing new shooters to the range. Even without new shooters, we always go over the rules of safety and insure that everyone has eyes and ears and give folks a chance to shoot firearms new to them before they possibly buy for themselves. It is great seeing a grandma plinking with her 10/22 while a teen gets his first chance at shooting a revolver while my son talks about firearms with one of the elders of the church. Reply Ralph says: November 24, 2011 at 18:23 Whether you like the medium or not, it’s hard to disagree with the message. But Ralph wants to know why Pastor Dowell refers to himself in the third person. Reply Mike OFWG says: November 24, 2011 at 20:47 We agree. Reply Frank says: November 24, 2011 at 19:49 Acts 7:24 King James Bible. There are more, he is wrong about the christian church. Reply Mikeb302000 says: November 25, 2011 at 04:31 He’s a bullshit con-artist. He actually said nobody is talking about the police violence at the occupy demonstrations. What crap! Also, his claim, like many of yours, that we consider you violent just because you have a gun is wrong. What I say is the violent and unfit and dangerous ones among you look just like the rest of you. That’s the problem. You’re response is the percentages are so low I don’t need to worry about it. I disagree. Reply Robert Farago says: November 25, 2011 at 08:29 So how about some hard data then Mike. It’s been months since a member of our AI asked you to put up or shut up. Reply Mikeb302000 says: November 25, 2011 at 09:07 Put up or shut up about what exactly? About how many news stories are about pepper-spraying police brutality at the demonstrations, or about how many of you guys are unfit and dangerous but blend in? The first one is too obvious to even try and answer. The second one, like much of what you challenge us to produce, is just not available. You say it’s few enough, I say it’s too many. Reply Jake says: January 18, 2012 at 12:26 Sure, Hidden Criminals way outnumber the vast throng of dirty cops for which there is a pile of video evidence. Oh wait I forgot, you figure, you guess, and you speculate about the bogunneyman. I guess when you get your facts from DHS videos about home grown crackerrists you can’t come to any other conclusion. Eric says: November 25, 2011 at 08:57 “What I say is the violent and unfit and dangerous ones among you look just like the rest of you.” Are you talking about me and my fellow African-Americans? You’re a racist. Reply Chaz says: November 25, 2011 at 10:00 What I say is the violent and unfit and dangerous ones among you look just like the rest of you. Don’t go all Arnaud-Amaury on us now…! Reply mikeb302000 says: November 26, 2011 at 12:20 Cool. I had to look old Arnaud up. Thanks. Reply Jake says: January 18, 2012 at 12:21 They’re there! But you can’t find them, they’re HIDDEN! Shhhh! Reply Matt in FL says: November 27, 2011 at 23:46 I often think that the people who froth at the mouth about gun handling in YouTube videos are going way overboard… e.g. “You didn’t demonstrate, on camera, that the magazine was out and the chamber was empty at the start of the video, so clearly you must have a full mag and one in the pipe, and you’re criminally dangerous!” I think that e-warriors often miss the point of the video in their eagerness to feel superior in pointing out what the person making it did wrong. That said, I had an unexpected, visceral reaction when he pointed the gun/laser directly at me via the camera. I know I’m not in danger, and likely neither was anyone else, but that didn’t stop my stomach from involuntarily clenching for a split second. I’m curious if anyone else got that reaction? Reply mikeb302000 says: November 28, 2011 at 09:37 Yeah, I did. Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
