I know that’s a tad incendiary. But it could have been worse. I could’ve asked “Are Gun Control Advocates Delusional Cowards?” That question popped into my head yesterday, when Gunfight pinup Colin Goddard declared his goal: he wants Americans to be able to go anywhere safely. Really? Anywhere? Gun control can do that for us? I don’t think so. Meanwhile, it got worse. Check this from the post Faculty votes to not support concealed carry at today’s dailytoreador.com: “[Texas Tech Faculty Senator Carolyn] Tate said she did an unofficial survey of the faculty within the College of Visual and Performing Arts. Out of the 54 responses she received, 53 were opposed to having concealed carry on campus. She said many faculty members expressed how they already feel unsafe on campus . . .
“A typical comment brought up issues of faculty protection,” Tate said. “Faculty felt that they were already threatened. Many faculty expressed their feelings that, currently, they feel threatened in their offices and in their classrooms and even in their homes by students to whom they had given an unwanted grade.
“They felt that if this law were to pass, they would no longer feel any necessity of upholding any kind of academic rigor. Why bother to give anybody anything other than an ‘A’ if that student has easier access to inflicting bodily harm on a faculty member?”
I swear to God I never thought of this before: gun control advocates are afraid of law-abiding people with guns. Well, MORE afraid. I should have thunk it watching Gunfight last night, when Brady Campaign Prez Paul Helmke asserted that average people can turn into cold-blooded killers with the simple addition of a firearm.
It must be horrible to live in fear like that. You know what? Gun control advocates should get a concealed carry permit and carry a gun. How weird is that? Gun control advocates as people who secretly want a gun. Well, need one.
What’s your take on the motivations of those who would severely restrict access to firearms?
