A member of TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia recently reminded me to read the comments underneath the posts I blog on your behalf. “That’s where you can see that we’re winning,” he asserted. Roger that. Even comments beneath huffingtonpost.com articles extolling the [supposed] benefits of gun control are, in the main, pro-gun. Which is why more than a few website posting these anti-pistol polemics ban comments. Or delete ones that disagree with their point-of-view. Or dispense with reader feedback entirely. For example, one wonders what readers make of What Would Jesus Shoot at thedaily.com. Excerpted by patdollard.com, we get a better idea what the great unwashed [/sarcasm] think about churches offering concealed carry classes. There’s the above headline and this little gem from a commentator named daveca. . .
The course has nothing to do with firearms use or carry, they are legal dodges on behalf of the State, to both control people by forcing them to get Government permission to Bear Arms, which is absolutely unconstitutional, and attempt to legally exonerate the State if something happens. NO one is trained in firearms use in 3 or 10 hours.
It’s amazing how the truth just leaps out and hits you in the face sometimes. You know, once you see it. I wonder how we ever survived without the Internet.
Which reminds me, in case you hadn’t noticed, hourly service at TTAG is now restored. Amen. [h/t Greg S and Tyler Kee for the link]
