Drug addicts often find redemption treating other addicts. The transition from substance abuser to recovery specialist makes perfect sense: anyone who spends their life finding, financing, hiding and using drugs directs a LOT of energy towards drugs. If they can keep that focus and not do drugs they’re free to disguise their nihilistic narcissism in self-righteous sanctimony. And get paid for it. I reckon the same equation applies to full-time gun control advocates. (The Violence Policy Center’s main man Josh Sugarmann is or was a Federal Firearms Licensee.) And there’s a dark side to this “I made you, you made me” psychology. More than a few gun grabbers project their own inner rage at legal gun owners, as illustrated by Tweeter sloppymccheese [above]. Irony? Ironic irony? We report, you deride.

I can’t help it-he looks like the lead singer of Loverboy. I hate Loverboy.
[T]hey’re free to disguise their nihilistic narcissism in self-righteous sanctimony.–RF
Wow! I wish I had coined that phrase. :^)
Is that anything like a nattering nabob of negativism?
Sounds like Opportunity and Jeopardy were present. Now, just a dash of Ability and we might have ourselves a party…
If he were to Tweet that about the president, or a police officer, or a celebrity he would probably have some explaining to do. But a regular Joe, and its no big deal…
“More than a few gun grabbers project their own inner rage at legal gun owners,”
C’mon Robert. That’s just silly.
By the way, don’t you think the term “gun grabber” is exaggerated and innacurate? The people you describe as gun grabbers don’t want to grab your guns they just what to control them better.
“Gun loon” on the other hand is pretty accurate the way it’s commonly used. Don’t you think?
Don’t feed the troll!
“Listening to some guy spout off about not taking away his gun rights. I want to shoot him.”
Hey, sloppymcguy, there’s no need to shoot anybody. Nonviolence is the key. Just make that “some guy” read mikeb’s blog and he’ll die of boredom.
Now, Ralph, that’s just not true. We keep ’em pretty entertained over there (the few that come by).
