It Just Can’t Happen Again

Somewhere between 400,000 and 600,000 marched for life in Washington, DC on Friday, January 25. There wasn’t much said in the media – in fact, the last time one of the MSM shills interviewed someone about the abortion problem in America, Andrea Mitchell slapped down Juleanna Glover – after Glover had called herself “deeply pro-life” Mitchell insisted that she call herself “anti-abortion” in order to “use the term that I think is more value-neutral.”

Half a million people marched. That’s pretty impressive. Guess how many marched in support of gun control in Washington, DC the next day?

The best guess anyone is willing to offer is “thousands.” That’s it. Nobody is willing to say for sure because the left-wing media knows full well that it won’t come close to the volume of people that showed up for the March for Life.

I, personally, am thoroughly disgusted by how biased the media is being right now.

They have made clear that they don’t give a damn about the facts. They aren’t interested in actually protecting children; they see Sandy Hook and other mass shootings as a stepping stool to complete gun control, eventually even an outright UK-style ban. They have always wanted guns to be banned. Guns are only used for killing, you see. For that reason we have no right to own them. If you ask Sylvester Stallone, he’ll tell you that “it’s not 200 years ago, we don’t need this [the Second Amendment] anymore!” Yes, he actually said that. In fact, he said it in 2008 when he endorsed John McCain for president.

I hate to tell you this, Sly, but we do need it now. We need it more than ever.

The most disgusting thing about the march for gun control yesterday were the signs that said, “We Are Sandy Hook, We Choose Love.” Really? You think that because you are against guns, you are somehow more loving than I am? Let me explain something…I love every child in my family. Every single one of my nieces and nephews is a gift from God. I love them so much that if anyone ever tried to harm them, I would kill that person with my bare hands. I would rather they see me kill a person who is trying to be violent than have to bury them. What would I say to them in the aftermath? That there are bad people in the world, and you should never choose violence, but you should always be ready to defend yourself if the need arises. Yes, I believe those children are worth far more than the animals trying to murder them. Yes, I would be willing to kill to protect them. Yes, it is because I love them. The fact that anyone would accuse me of not loving those kids is an insult that I refuse to abide.

March organizer Molly Smith said she was “horrified by it [Sandy Hook].” Do you think we weren’t? Does anyone really believe that those of us who believe in and actively exercise our Second Amendment rights weren’t absolutely tortured at the thought of what those families were going through, what those children experienced in their last moments of life? There is a word for those who do believe such nonsense: narcissists.

My little brother has picked up a gun and gone to war twice because he loved his country and his family. He didn’t want us to have to survive another 9/11. He didn’t want his wife and children to live in fear. A good friend of mine died in that war because he believed in freedom and taking the fight to the bad guy rather than cowering and begging for mercy. Other friends came home in pieces because they believed in the cause of freedom. Now you want to tell them that they can’t defend their families on their own soil, in their own homes? You want to tell them – tell ME – that we cannot be trusted with the same tool that won our freedom in the first place and has won peace many times since?

Perhaps the absolute silliest parallel drawn during the gun control march came from 78-year-old James Agenbroad. He carried a sign that read, “Repeal the 2nd Amendment.” He said, “you can repeal it. We repealed prohibition.”

I don’t think Mr. Agenbroad really understands what he’s saying here. Prohibition was an outright ban on the manufacturing, sale and transportation of alcoholic beverages. It lasted from 1920-1933. You could drink, you just couldn’t brew or distill or transport the stuff (making it a little hard to drink). Prohibition was a spectacular failure. It did absolutely nothing to stop alcohol from being produced, sold and transported – in fact, it made the trade a more lucrative business. It was Al Capone’s business.

You cannot make a point about gun control – repealing the Second Amendment and banning and confiscating all civilian-owned firearms – by invoking the repeal of a law that banned alcohol. If you don’t understand the ludicrosity of his statement, you are beyond my help.

What do you do when someone like Adam Lanza shows up with guns that the law prevented him from buying to shoot innocent people? Well, first you hide. Then you call 911 to beg for rough men and women to bring their guns to shoot him and stop his killing spree. There is nothing wrong with being afraid and wanting to hide. The problems come when you expect me to do what you’re doing. It will never happen. The fact that I see how evil people can be and am willing to stand up to them does not make me dangerous, nor does it make me different.

I’m not sure how much more I can take of these blithering nitwits declaring that “it just can’t happen again.” You keep saying that, and yet you’re setting us all up to be walking targets.

  1. Right Is Right,

    Personally, I’ve never met a liberal who didn’t think they could cure all the world’s ills—including craziness—with other people’s money.

  2. Anonymous,

    Very well stated!

  3. Luke, your comment turning Nancy Lanza into a perpetrator was so vile that I removed it. I will not have any kind of discourse with a person who turns everything into something personal. If you wish to disagree, that’s fine – but you will not attack a victim here. Do it again and your IP will be banned.

    By the way, it’s MAGUIRE. The proper spelling from the original Irish, Mag Uidhír. Get it right.

  4. I’ve had it out with a Missouri legislator for the last day and a half over their proposal that an outright ban and confiscation of weapons. I accused them of not even understanding the purpose of Second Amendment nor being able to recognize the two most important words within, “free state”.

    I further stated their proposal makes them the very kind of people the Founding Fathers feared most when that amendment was written.

    George Mason is surely rolling in his grave.

  5. veryopinionated25,

    All this talk about gun control makes me want to scream… these gun grabbers are just stupid about guns period. They have no clue what they do and what they are used for. Don’t they understand that if they ban all guns that the criminals are still going to get them reguardless.

  6. R means republitards,

    Australia. Almost twenty years without a public shooting. And a murder rate that’s just a fraction of USA’s one. Funny how things work differently in real world :-) But republitards’ minds are still on the Wild West era.

  7. And here’s our favorite troll, back to use his favorite sophomoric insult – calling us Republitards. Why? Because his testicles still haven’t dropped and, like every 13-year-old out there, he thinks he has it all figured out.

    Let’s talk about Australia, shall we? Gun deaths may be lower, but Australia does not border any other nation and does not face the challenges that we do here in America (extremely loose immigration standards in Canada that allow anti-Americans in droves and drug violence in Mexico that gets around 75% of its guns from its own military and countries OTHER than the US).

    Australia’s murder rate is not “a fraction” of the US murder rate. I’m not sure where you’re getting your information, but it’s dishonest at best. Australia enacted its gun ban in 1997. Between 1997 and 2007, murder rates in Australia and the US dropped by nearly the exact same rate. Violent crime, however, dropped here in the US. In Australia it was quite the opposite. Assault shot up by nearly 50%, rape soared by nearly 30%, robbery went up by just over 6%, and the overall violent crime rate rose by just over 42%.

    That is ridiculous, but it’s what happens when the bad guys know their potential victims won’t be armed. During that same time period in the US, rape dropped by over 19%, robbery dropped by over 33%, aggravated assault dropped by over 32% and the overall violent crime rate dropped by 32%.

    Explain that one then come back and tell me exactly who is mentally challenged.

  8. veryopinionated25,

    Mel.. i honestly think that you should only allow readers only 18 years or older to read your blog or just allow trolls because obviously they are too immature to read your enteries. Just a suggestion :)
