There just has to be something we can apply to the issue of Gun Free Zones!

    I can’t believe Obama went where he went today on gun control and leaving us defenseless from these monsters.

    I can not only believe it, I would have been surprised if he hadn’t.

    Obama doesn’t see it as defense.

    Obama sees it as control.

    ?I loathe guns. If I could, I would not only destroy all existing guns but I would eradicate the memory of anything associated with guns. Even though I am a Red-Blooded American Male® and I like watching things go boom, I despise guns with a burning hate that I can’t even begin to describe.

    But aside from some people feeling threatened by the mere presence of guns, there are two and only two groups that benefit from an unarmed but law-abiding populace.

    The first are criminals. The second are politicos and the law-enforcement officers that act against freedom.

    That’s it. Try as I might, I can’t find any other groups that benefit from an unarmed populace.

    Now with an armed populace, the entire equation changes. To start with, criminals grow nervous, which reduces the need for a militaristic police force.

    Amazing how that works, isn’t it?

    The only reason I am a reluctant gun advocate is because I can’t be anything else without threatening your freedom.?

    I googled this, and found the article on your blog, which I read, and found a bit puzzling.

    I also found Bookworm’s article, which I thought was very insightful, though I could’ve gone all year without seeing the monstrous and tragic photos therein. I thought the first comment was pretty good, too.

    But back to your comment. Do you feel like sharing why you are so opposed to guns? After all, people have been killing things since long before guns, and they would continue even if all guns were destroyed.

    Guns themselves aren’t the problem. People are the problem. After all, when there’s a drunk driving accident, we don’t blame the car. When there’s a stabbing, we don’t blame the knife.

    Re: my blog article. I wanted to make the point that even if I didn’t agree with someone, in matters of freedom I was obligated to defend them just to defend liberty. Did you know that John Adams defended the British soldiers at trial after the Boston Massacre?

    Just because someone isn’t in the room doesn’t mean I won’t defend them if things begin to go too far.

    Does it really matter?

    I do the reluctant advocate thing for a reason. No matter what I feel, I cannot speak against your freedom.

    So yes, I loathe guns. But I will defend your right to carry and use guns.

    I can’t do anything else and keep my honor.

    Let’s not let this distract from the real issue facing us:

    Which is how do we pin this on Donald Trump, the NRA, the Tea Party, and Fox News?

    It is like the start of a series of bad jokes.

    “An AR 15 and suicide vest walk into a gay bar in Orlando.”

    These horrible implements of death just coincidentally happen to be attached to some poor, unsuspecting Muslim guy or something.

    The left must be so horribly upset that a white, red-neck named Billy-Bob isn’t the perp.

    Tell the damn government to stop importing terrorists into the country and these things won’t happen.

    Why the irrational hate for an inanimate object? I don’t exactly love any given set of tools, but I do love the potential that a good hammer and drill offer and I also love the freedom and security that my firearms guarantee.

    And you gotta wonder how thorough the FBI was in vetting this guy. “No threat” just like that ugly sow in San Bernardino!

    The same team investigating “alleged” crimes in the Clinton email case must have investigated this guy.

    At this point, I don’t think the FBI could find a terrorist in an Iranian mosque!

    That’s not directed at me, right? Because I’m a redneck cracker and have no issue with any kind of weapon. And like all redneck crackers, I was taught to safely shoot, and to care for my weapons from early childhood. Fact is, you can’t really safely live in BF Egypt and not have weapons and know how to use them.

    And, you know, if NW doesn’t like them, that’s his look-out, I figure.

    2 bits of information:
    1) Google Hitoshi Igarashi: Japan is notoriously a country not flooded with immigrants due to the healthy politics of their governments, however in 1991 a muslim immigrant from Bangladesh managed to murder this guy whose guilt was only translating from Farsi to Japanese the famous book ‘the satanic verses’. Slayed with a knife. If Wikipedia is to be trusted, the muslim fanatic managed to flee to native bangladesh and despite having been identified, he was never extradited since Japan did not want to inflame souls on both sides. This proves you that you do not need very sophisticated reasons for a muslim to commit murder againts an infidel and that one muslim is one muslim too many. You do not even need a gun since he is pretty capable to reach his goal with a knife. As a side note the norwegian translator of the same book has been murdered too and the italian translator has been attacked. As a second side note, Japan did a terrible mistake not prosecuting this guy since muslims are the kind of people that see this as a terrible weakness to be exploited.

    2) Japan has very strict gun laws, this did not prevent a series of deadly attacks with knives and swords to some schools. The number of victims sometimes outnumbers the victims at Sandy hook and Other american examples. The reason probably is that Japanese people are disarmed and it takes a while for any of them to react in timely manner. I am not quoting the sarin gas massacre since it is very over the top(
