All Your Guns Are Belong to Us

“Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?”
   ~ Obama at Newtown vigil
Do you suppose that thousands of people's lives might be spared if we had less traffic?  Exactly how many people couldn't do work from home at least once or twice a week?  Maybe you haven't thought about it much because you just don't care who gets killed.  We could have a lot fewer youths dying (and others dying in the accidents to which they are prone) if we restricted their driving and made it harder for them to get licenses.  Are you going to make their deaths the price of the freedom to put-put-put around as one pleases?

Baseball bats are a weapon of choice for physical assaults. some say the weapon of choice.  True, you are much more likely to die if your assailant uses a gun, but Americans have a guaranteed right to a gun, not to a baseball bat.  Think of all  the people that would have not been assaulted (especially those who did not survive the attack) if the assailant had not had that bat handy.  He might have had to resort to his fists instead.   Or maybe he would not have attacked at all.  Are you going to make those deaths the price of playing America's favorite pastime?  Well, then you're sick my friend.  Bitterly clinging to your weird baseball religion.

Remember the so-called gun rights truce earlier in 2012?  When I read about that I thought, I'm sure Obama will evolve and have "more flexibility" on that issue after November.  He got up at the vigil for the dead children, and after expressing sympathy for the parents there, turned it into a simple choice between essential liberty and children's lives.  Talk about stacking little coffins into a soapbox.  Give me more money, of grandma might not get her social security check.  Give up your gun rights, or the blood of innocent children will be on your hands.

How much Fort Hood blood is on Bill Clinton's hands for turning Fort Hood into a gun-free zone?  A military base, and no one was adequately armed to stop the crazed fanatic that brought his gun into the gun-free zone.  Honestly, it's as though criminals just don't obey the law any more.

Maybe fewer children would have been burned to death in Waco if little boys at the ATF weren't given tanks to play with.  Just a thought.

Speaking of blood on an administration's hands, one commentator recently put Eric Holder's little gunwalking stunt to churn up support for gun control into perspective:
It would be as if the Bush administration had implemented a covert operation to dump a dangerous abortifacient in Planned Parenthood clinics, resulting in hundreds of women dying — just to give pro-lifers an argument about how dangerous abortion clinics are.
Well, it would be except that CNN would still be covering that now until there was a federal amendment guaranteeing the right to 4th-trimester abortions.  (Sorry, folks, but CNN made quite an impression on me this last October.)  

You gun control enthusiasts really want to make America safe?  Maybe Eric Holder can locate likely troublemakers (there are enough provisions in the revise Patriot Act--and there is plenty of information from the FBI) that take prescription meds and have a history of trouble (as the Columbine killers did), in states where all school employees are likely to be unarmed, so that no annoying Pearl High School interventions occur.  He can equip the crazies, via a man in a trenchcoat pretending to be someone from the NRA.  Several massacres of schoolchildren could occur within a very short time frame.  Instant public outrage.  

Sure, innocent lives will be lost, but any liberal who beamed as Chris Matthews rejoiced in the calamity of Hurricane Sandy can appreciate that it is all outweighed by all the good it would do!  And Holder has already demonstrated that if it all blows up and somehow leads back to him, he will simply deny Congress access to the documents through executive privilege.  (I wouldn't be surprised if the main reason for the Fast & Furious inquiry lockout is to hide the fact that the documentation for Fast and Furious is lost, disappeared in a late night shredding party.) And we know that the major news outlets will downplay the story as some conspiratorial obsession.  

And now for some more pics (too many to choose from) . . .


 And just in case Michael Moore thinks I've forgotten his darling animation where he completely rewrites history by saying that the NRA was sympathetic to the KKK... Here is one he'll dearly hate.  Please don't let Michael Moore pump you full of his ignorance.   This picture is much more historically... on target.  :-)
