More Anti-Gun Squealing

Note the qualifier at the beginning of the article: “This is an opinion piece written by a father who grew up in an extended family of hunters with rifles and other types of guns.” So that, apparently, makes him independent and non-emotional, and a pro-gun advocate from the womb. Or so he plays it out. It also makes the rest of the article perfectly predictable. Then you read the piece, as such:

I see that NRA decal on the rear window of your car and my eyes narrow. I look at the back of your head in the driver’s seat and I wonder if you are a threat.

A threat to my children. A threat to me. A threat to society.

To quote him, folks who value their own lives and the lives of their loved ones, enough to defend those lives, are “a potential threat”; “endorsing violence”; “don’t care about the loss of human life”; and they are making this poor fella “appalled and saddened and sickened and angry.” If you take “appalled and saddened and sickened” and turn it into an acronym, you come up with a fair assessment of him.

And of course, all of us who uphold our right to live in peace are the “next good guys to snap.” This is the sappiest pile of illogical overindulgence I have ever seen on the gun issue. His near-ending is so insightful that is causes me to think he has extrasensory powers that none of us can comprehend.

“All I know is what the NRA decal in the rear window of your car tells me.”

I will have nothing to do with the NRA because of its bad politics and penchant for being a money-begging machine that doesn’t intend to protect the absolute rights of gun owners. But I’m sure this writer of this scrap-heap-of-a-blog would be more offended by a sticker noting the JPFO (Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership).

    I would remind this person of an old Klingon proverb that tells us that a running man may slit 4,000 throats in a single night.

    Yes, just another emotional screed. What abject nonsense. And I agree with you on the NRA. GOA is a much better organization, though not perfect, of course.

    To the girlie man who shudders at the sight of an NRA sticker: look up Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge.

    In the words of the great Bugs Bunny “What a maroon.”
    Stooping to name-calling is of course the worst of rebuttal, but in this case I am too old and too tired to stoop THAT low to counter. This is so wrong it HAS to be agenda script, not someone’s true, albeit misguided, feelings on the subject. Hopeless…. When pushing the rope doesn’t work, complain about the rope…

    I find it of some interest to note that the blogger in question first shut down comments to his blog, and has since taken the entire blog private.

    That means his argument is irrefutable, right?

    However, the internet is forever. You can still read it, if you wish to waste the time, at http://web.archive.org/web/20150826234944/http://dadscribe.com/2015/08/26/nra-decal-danger/

    Karen,

    You seem to imply that JPFO is a real defender of gun rights. I used to be a big fan of JPFO, but they were acquired by/merged into the Second Amendment Foundation in the last year or two. While the SAF has done some good things through litigation to support gun rights, their leader Alan Gottleib, who in my opinion is a little weasel, came out in strong support of legislation (the Manchin-Toomey bill) that would require universal background checks on any transfer of a firearm, which would likely mean a national database of all guns. Perhaps the JPFO is still doing some good work, I don’t know, but I wrote them off when they merged into the SAF. I still support Gun Owners of America, and more recently John Lott’s Crime Prevention Research Center (although I admit I need to do some more due diligence on the latter organization). 

    Completely off topic, but I wish someone (hint, hint) would write an article explaining why women are apparently not very interested in the idea of liberty. Within the last year or so both Lew Rockell and Tom Woods surveyed their listeners via online surveys regarding their demographics, and I believe in both cases the readers/listeners were over 90% male. This is in line with what I have observed over the years at libertarian conferences, etc.

    Keep up the great posts.
