The morons are coming for your guns

In the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting tragedy there has been a rush to twist the facts and politically exploit the crisis in order to emotionally (and dishonestly) justify starting to do away with our right to keep and bear arms.   The usual suspects on the left are wringing their hands and demonizing the rest of us in an effort to get the gun bans rolling.   Take the emotion out of the argument, use facts, address the real problems and they fail.

Here are a few facts that are conveniently overlooked:

The second amendment was created primarily to allow the population to defend itself against a tyrannical government.   The Founding Fathers are quoted everywhere stating this concept: “No Free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” (Thomas Jefferson, Proposal Virginia Constitution, 1 T. Jefferson Papers, 334,[C.J.Boyd, Ed., 1950]).   So when the low information voter (moron) or the left wing politician (evil bastards) starts spouting that we should not be allowed the similar weapons the government has, what they really want is your freedom.

Most of the high death toll incidents result in the suicide of the gunman before or as he is confronted by law enforcement or someone with a firearm.   They want to die on their terms and appear not to want to be wounded or captured unless they screw up.

Ann Coulter had an excellent article on 12/19/2012.   Here is an excellent list of facts that are left out of the propaganda of the left:

If the deterrent effect of concealed-carry laws seems surprising to you, that’s because the media ide stories of armed citizens stopping mass shooters. At the Portland shooting, for example, no explanation was given for the amazing fact that the assailant managed to kill only two people in the mall during the busy Christmas season.

It turns out, concealed-carry-holder Nick Meli hadn’t noticed that the mall was a gun-free zone. He pointed his (otherwise legal) gun at the shooter as he paused to reload, and the next shot was the attempted mass murderer killing himself. (Meli aimed, but didn’t shoot, because there were bystanders behind the shooter.)


If we care about reducing the number of people killed in mass shootings, shouldn’t we pay particular attention to the cases where the aspiring mass murderer was prevented from getting off more than a couple rounds?

– Mayan Palace Theater, San Antonio, Texas, this week: Jesus Manuel Garcia shoots at a movie theater, a police car and bystanders from the nearby China Garden restaurant; as he enters the movie theater, guns blazing, an armed off-duty cop shoots Garcia four times, stopping the attack. Total dead: Zero.

– Winnemucca, Nev., 2008: Ernesto Villagomez opens fire in a crowded restaurant; concealed carry permit-holder shoots him dead. Total dead: Two. (I’m excluding the shooters’ deaths in these examples.)

– Appalachian School of Law, 2002: Crazed immigrant shoots the dean and a professor, then begins shooting students; as he goes for more ammunition, two armed students point their guns at him, allowing a third to tackle him. Total dead: Three.

– Santee, Calif., 2001: Student begins shooting his classmates — as well as the “trained campus supervisor”; an off-duty cop who happened to be bringing his daughter to school that day points his gun at the shooter, holding him until more police arrive. Total dead: Two.

– Pearl High School, Mississippi, 1997: After shooting several people at his high school, student heads for the junior high school; assistant principal Joel Myrick retrieves a .45 pistol from his car and points it at the gunman’s head, ending the murder spree. Total dead: Two.

– Edinboro, Pa., 1998: A student shoots up a junior high school dance being held at a restaurant; restaurant owner pulls out his shotgun and stops the gunman. Total dead: One.

By contrast, the shootings in gun-free zones invariably result in far higher casualty figures — Sikh temple, Oak Creek, Wis. (six dead); Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Va. (32 dead); Columbine High School, Columbine, Colo. (12 dead); Amish school, Lancaster County, Pa. (five little girls killed); public school, Craighead County, Ark. (five killed, including four little girls).

The bottom line is simple, the next time some whiney left wing libtard asks you “why do you need an assault weapon,”  the easy answer is to reply “To keep you and your kind from taking my stuff”.    That is the real purpose of the 2nd Amendment.
