More Unicorn Farts and Gumdrop Turds

Just more evidence anti-gun advocates live in nothing resembling reality:

The real freedom we need is the freedom to be able to walk around without the fear of our fellow citizens shooting us by design or accident. 
and how is skippy planning on that?  Why MORE LAWS of course:
Nobody likes or wants more laws than are strictly necessary to run a peaceful and fair country, but in the absence of people reining in their irresponsible worship of guns, the government will have no choice but to apply more regulation to this arena.
Just like the Empire States shooting was in a place w/ little to no 'regulation'.  He didn't illegally possess, carry or use that gun, right?  So obviously the other millions of people who DIDN'T go out shooting their co-workers need to be punished. But here's the core of his beliefs, ignorance and fear.

1) Ignorance:
If guns are indeed nothing special, then why are they symbols of anything except good engineering, and in that case, why are they so important to the integrity of our nation in the first place?
Can we say Lexington and Concord boys and girls? Ever heard of the 'Minuteman'?  He's not carrying a cellphone to call the cops, he's carrying a rifle. This individual who goes on about American Freedoms and he has no clue about the very foundations of our country.

2) Fear:

Americans across generations have not only used guns for hunting and self-defense but to experience a sense of control and power that only a firearm can impart. Having been shooting at a gun range myself, I can attest to that feeling.
Yep, Skippy went to the range, got a stiffy while shooting and it scared him. It started breaking down that that mental block of "I'm not the NRA" he had built up to maintain his feelings of self-worth so he doubles down w/ the bigotry.  Look at some of the ways he attempts to disparage firearm owners: Cowboy, anarchist ,Gary Cooper or John Wayne,outlaws, imagined fears and a desperate need for control, free-wheeling aggression, most twisted interpretation, violates common sense, psychotic and trigger-happy....

To him, owning and enjoying a firearm is a mental disease so when he actually enjoyed himself while shooting, it scared him silly because then he would have to face the reality that his core beliefs might be *gasp* WRONG. That he is not the pinnacle of reasonable-ness and common-sense he believes himself to be.  He is afraid to look at any other views other than the ones he has already established and he is afraid that if he enjoys firearms, he may turn into an 'anarchist cowboy'.

The author really needs to stick to banking.

And since they want you to be mentally tested before buying a gun....

In NYC you are more likely to get shot by the cops, then you are by a loose cannon with a vendetta against a former coworker.

I got news for you Skippy; that "sense of control and power" you're talking about? That's what we call "FREEDOM".


Just because you don't like the feeling doesn't mean the rest of us should be forced to do without. Though i suspect that deep down you truly do like that feeling, and you are now forced to confront the truth; that when you promote gun control you are, in fact, advocating for the enslavement of all people to the unilateral power of the 'state'.

This is a repeat article from two years ago or so. I recall the gunnie blogosphere taking someone to task for the "Having been shooting at a gun range myself, I can attest to that feeling" statement.

Either this author is recycling his old post due to recent events, or he's using a template provided by the gun-grabbers, or he's plagarizing someone else to create his article. None of which attests to his integrity.

Toward the end of the article the author says that guns represent "mindless violence." He seems to believe that mindless violence is the only kind there is.

Guns represent violence, yes, but what kind of violence it is depends entirely on the user. In my hands, a gun represents careful, restrained violence used only where it is necessary.

If the author truly believes that all violence is mindless violence, he should probably start planning ways to disarm the police.
