Brady Campaign:"Everyone's As Stupid As We Are"

So now get this story, BradyBot Chairthing Heidi Yewman decided to 'prove' how easy it is to get and carry a firearm even for ignorant, stupid people.  So, being ignorant and stupid, she does so.
Tony told me a Glock doesn’t have an external safety feature, so when I got home and opened the box and saw the magazine in the gun I freaked. I was too scared to try and eject it as thoughts flooded my mind of me accidentally shooting the gun and a bullet hitting my son in the house or rupturing the gas tank of my car, followed by an earth-shaking explosion. This was the first time my hands shook from the adrenaline surge and the first time I questioned the wisdom of this 30-day experiment.
She's seen to many movies and read to many Brady press releases although assuming the gun was loaded is one of the '4 Rules'.
I needed help. I drove to where a police officer had pulled over another driver. Now, writing this, I realize that rolling up on an on-duty cop with a handgun in tow might not have been fully thought through.
I told him I just bought a gun, had no clue how to use it. I asked him to make sure there were no bullets in the magazine or chamber. He took the magazine out and cleared the chamber. He assured me it was empty and showed me how to look. Then he told me how great the gun was and how he had one just like it.
Yeah, she needs mental help if she has a panic attack even seeing a gun w/ a magazine in it.
The cop thought I was an idiot and suggested I take a class. But up to that point I’d done nothing wrong, nothing illegal.
Most people probably think she's an idiot w/o it having anything to do w/ firearms.  
 The gun makes me more fearful than I could have imagined.
In some way, I feel a certain vindication. I was right to protest Starbucks policy. Today, they have a woman with absolutely no firearms training and a Glock on her hip sitting within arm’s reach of small children, her hands shaking and adrenaline surging.
Which just increases the likelyhood of something happening.

Basically one of two things will happen.

1) Nothing.  She will basically show that even being ignorant and stupid /= death and destruction although that won't stop her righteous indignation against firearm ownership.

2) Something. Her ignorance and stupidity will prove her right.  She'll have a negligent discharge, possibly hurting someone, but she'll be vindicated as she deals w/ all the legal ramifications of her negligence.

I feel dumber for having read that Ms. Blog article.

How does she manage to function as a human being every day, with that much ignorant fear? Does she live in a 1-story house, so there are no deadly stairs for her to fall down? No bathtubs, of course, because who ever thought of THAT death trap?

Wow.

So If she shoots someone, I guess in her mind it will be the NRA's fault and not herself.

Amazing!

If a 'gunny' had said (s)he had purchased a firearm, carried in public without any training, any experience, any practical knowledge of the gun; most people would castigate that person....and with good reason.

Training isn't required but ability is. She violates that by showing she has no knowledge or ability to safely handle the firearm.

And yet, she still hasn't harmed anyone.
It's almost as if they are lying about how much training is required.

Notice her equating "wrong" with "illegal". Clearly she has done something "wrong". She took possession of some machinery that has her scared to distraction and which she is completely ignorant about. Yet she claims that she did nothing "wrong" because she did nothing "illegal".

This is a major base of statist philosophy. The state determines what is "wrong" by making it illegal. If the state says it is not illegal, then it is not wrong.

This is exactly the philosophy that so many in NAZI Germany, the Soviet Union, and Mao's China relied on and which lead to so many mass murders.

“Because I’m a complete moron everyone else must be a complete moron, too.”
That’s some s-for-brains reasoning right there.

Let’s have a little fun with this logic-

-----------------

The video had said a semi doesn’t actually use the key to start the engine, so when I climbed into the driver’s seat and saw the key in cylinder I freaked. I was too scared to try and pull it out as thoughts flooded my mind of me accidentally starting the truck and it taking off at high speed across the school’s parking lot, followed by an earth-shaking explosion. This was the first time my hands shook from the adrenaline surge and the first time I questioned the wisdom of this 30-day experiment.

I needed help. I walked to where an Instructor had pulled over another driver. Now, writing this, I realize that walking up to an on-duty Instructor in the middle of doing his job might not have been fully thought through.
I told him I had always wanted to be a truck driver and had no clue how to start one. I asked him to make sure there were no defects in the switch or any other part of the cab. He took the roster out and started checking names. He assured me all the semi’s were in perfect condition and asked me for my name and student ID. Then he told me, “Who the h- are you and what are you doing in here?”

The Instructor thought I was an idiot and suggested I actually pay and take a class. But up to that point I’d done nothing wrong, nothing illegal. Well, maybe trespassing.

The large trucks made me more fearful than I could have imagined.

In some way, I feel a certain vindication. I was right to protest DOT policy. Today, they have a woman with absolutely no professional training trying to hot-wire a tractor trailer sitting across from a school filled with small children, her hands shaking and adrenaline surging.

Idiot.

Oh man, my sides!! First Miss Utah (my home state!) and now this. At this rate, it's going to be the funniest week ever!

zr1 said...

Wait...she has a child?

Was there a background check for the child?

Shouldn't the government have her name/info registered on file for the child?

Has she had official child training? (other than asking a childcare person that had some other parent pulled over on the side of the road to make sure she could check out whether her own child was loaded or not...the childcare person looked at her like she was an idiot and thought she should get some information on the subject)

Does Starbucks know they have a person there that's not trained in taking care of children?

ScorpionHunter said...

I will go out on a limb here and say that nothing, absolutely nothing, will happen to Ms Yewman and her gun. She will not shoot anyone. She will not injure anyone. She will not kill anyone. She will not be killed. There are about 240,000,000 adults in the US. If 30% of them own guns, that's about 72,000,000 gun owners. If 100,000 people are injured or killed by a person using a gun, that comes to about .0001388889% chance that she would use the gun to do that. Reduce that number even further because she's a white, middle aged woman who statistically neither commits suicide nor violent crime, and you have a probability barely above 0%, no matter how unskilled, untrained, afraid, she is.

This is not a story. It's just a piece to reinforce anti-gun hysteria.

I noticed in her article that she didn't purchase ammunition to go with the gun. I would infer that she was carrying an unloaded gun in her daily tasks. To call her an idiot is an insult to the real idiots out there.

Clinton said...

Your comment is awaiting moderation.

You are allowed to go to any bookstore and buy any book you want. No training is required, no background check mandated. And ideas have caused more deaths than any item could ever hope to.
Look how many people vote without proper ‘training’, and yet no one argues to take away that constitutional right. I could take gun control activists more seriously if they would simply stop fetishizing objects, and instead seek to confront the actions and motiviations of wrongdoers.

wanna bet my comment there never gets published?

Billll said...

I did notice the absence of mention of ammunition. Perhaps Diana DeGette told her is came in the magazines so she's convinced the gun is already loaded. Her initial reaction seems to bear this out.

Glorioski! The ammo shortage works in our favor. No danger of an A.D.

Braden Lynch said...

I have to ask, why did she not just pick up the bleeping manual and read a bit about it?

I understand they even have pictures in gun owners manuals so illiterates can figure out what to do, and what not to do.

People like her walk among us...be afraid, be very afraid...and they vote Democrat.

TS said...

Because the law doesn't require her to read the manual.

The law also doesn't require her to look both ways before stepping into the crosswalk, but I bet she does anyway.

This is a major base of statist philosophy. The state determines what is "wrong" by making it illegal. If the state says it is not illegal, then it is not wrong.

The logical statist corollary, of course, is that anything said statist considers "wrong" (or "bad," or "not good for you," or...) must be made illegal.

Gee, 12 hours later and my comment did not show up. I was not insulting or bombastic. Only one viewpoint manages to show up. How convenient.
