One of our readers writes: “I am truely beginning to wonder if gun control advocates are insane, delusional and just plain stupid.” The object of his wonderment: today’s blog on the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s (CSVG) website. It’s mostly about a comment underneath gunshowundercover’s YouTube video above. Oh wait, all the comments were removed and commenting disabled. Never mind. Let’s hear what the CSVG has to say about a comment that’s so inflammatory it doesn’t exist. Except it does. Again . . .
We recently received some new YouTube comments from gun violence prevention activist Abby Spangler. Many of you will remember Abby as the Virginia mom who has received a litany of misogynist, threatening comments from pro-gun activists. Turns out that Abby has a new fan on YouTube who is very proud of his gun collection.
That individual is a 14-year-old who goes by the screen name of ‘Shedneom,’ and here is what he had to say to Abby: ‘
Im 14 and have a full automatic m16 and ak47, a tank, a semi a rocket launcher, a silencer for all of the above, a .50 caliber assualt sniper rifle thats anti tank, 10,000 explosive burning deadly rounds.three .50 caliber pistols, a fully automatic 12 guage shotgun. and all my guns use highcapacity magazines that hold up to 500 rounds and there always loaded in the house.
As our man says, “Comments on are now gospel or factual proof? Every time I think they can’t get any lower, they amaze me….”
But wait! There’s lower!
Sometimes nothing helps with parenting like a loaded gun, however. That’s what North Carolina dad Tommy Jordan showed the world [22m hits and counting] when he posted the following video on Facebook to “discipline” his teenage daughter:
Oh, how to analyze this fabulous example of parenting? Allow us to quote a pastoral counselor who frequently posts at theCSGV Facebook page:
A “parent” who sees no problem with possession and use of a weapon is bad enough. A “parent” who sees use of his weapon as a “parenting tool” is a significant cause for concern. ANYONE who thinks that violence is a solution to ANY situation, is dangerous. Add to that, a child who’s now been humiliated publicly for her behavior and has been taught by example by said parent, and who has access to WMD, and this points to a very dangerous mix. It may be too late for “intervention” for that family and closer to time for yet another family dissolution.
Despite the fact that the video earned him a visit from Child Protective Services, Jordan brags on his Facebook page, “If I had it to do again… let’s see…I’d do it almost the same.” What would he change? Well, he wishes he hadn’t smoked a cigarette in the video, regrets using the word “ass” in reference to his daughter, and “maybe [I’d have] used the .22 instead of the .45,” Jordan tell us. Talk about missing the target…
Meanwhile, [via wsoctv.com] we learn that . . .
“The police by the way said ‘Kudos, sir,’ ” Jordan wrote. “I actually had a “thank you” from an entire detectives squad. And another police officer is using it in a positive manner in his presentation for the school system. How’s about those apples? Didn’t expect THAT when you called the cops did you?”
Police officials in Albemarle told Channel 9 they have received dozens of calls and emails asking why they haven’t done anything about the video. Officials said Jordan lives outside of city limits, so his actions are outside of their jurisdiction.
Officials at the Stanly County Sheriff’s Office said there are no laws against what Jordan did, so they will not be investigating the matter.
I wonder if the CSVG’s going to continue their delusions by calling tomorrow’s Starbucks’ boycott a success—even though gun rights advocates spending $2 bills at the chain to show their support for the coffee seller’s stance on gun control will pwn them. I mean, you WILL be doing that right?
