You Won’t Believe The Crazy Things That Are Being Said About Gun Owners

You Wont Believe The Crazy Things That Are Being Said About Gun Owners 450x337 You Wont Believe The Crazy Things That Are Being Said About Gun Owners

Whenever there is a great crisis or a great tragedy in the United States, the collectivists immediately try to use it for their own political advantage.  As Rahm Emanuel once said, “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste”.  So it should be no surprise that liberals are doing their best to exploit the horrible tragedy that just happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.  20 small children and 6 adults were savagely murdered, and instead of appropriately mourning this great loss, liberals are in a feeding frenzy and are falling all over one another as they rush to exploit this horrible tragedy for political gain.  Some of the most horrible things that you can imagine are being said about gun owners and about the NRA.  They are being called murderers, terrorists and “the new KKK”.  Some are even suggesting that they should be shot or rounded up and put into camps.  It is absolutely disgusting to watch what is going on, and the mainstream media is just eating all of this up.  The mainstream media loves any story that they can use to demonize those that are opposed to the collectivist agenda.

Fortunately, the rampant demonization of gun owners is only having a limited impact on the poll numbers.  One new survey taken after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School has found that 71 percent of all Americans are against banning handguns entirely.  So hopefully we won’t see our politicians try to ban all gun ownership any time soon.

But they are definitely going to come after “assault weapons” early next year.  Some members of Congress have already indicated that they plan to introduce new gun control legislation in January.

Meanwhile, we can expect the demonization of gun owners and the NRA to continue.  The following are a few of the crazy things that have been said by gun grabbers in recent days…

-A statement by progressive grassroots group CREDO

“After the shooter Adam Lanza, no one is more to blame for the massacre of 20 first graders and six women at the Sandy Hook Elementary School than the National Rifle Association”

-Democratic New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler

“We have a lobby, the leadership of the NRA, who function as enablers of mass murder. And that’s what they are. They’re enablers of mass murder”

-Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock

“You know, I did not go as far as I’d like to go because my thoughts on the NRA and America’s gun culture – I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don’t have our best interests [at heart].”

-David Brooks on PBS Newshour

“And then I guess my final point would be, I think if we’re going to control guns, we really have to do it massive.

I think I’m all for getting rid of the assault weapons and machine guns and all that tough, but if we want to prevent something like this, we have to really think seriously about drastically reducing the number of guns in our society, and particularly — this is an old Patrick Daniel Moynihan idea — the number of bullets. It is very hard to control 300 million guns. The bullets are a little easier to control.”

-Salon columnist David Sirota on MSNBC

“The issue with it will be, politically, I think; the profile is white men. That’s a profile that’s not, essentially, in America allowed to be profiled. That’s the one profile in America that’s not allowed to be profiled.”

-MSNBC host Ed Schultz

“…it’s the confiscation of these types of weapons that counts and will have an impact.”

The things that people are saying on Twitter are even worse…

-Sam Tarling: “All NRA members should be shot!!!! I thank you, that’s one of my own!!”

-@fullofbalogna: “The NRA & gun manufacturers are terrorist organizations. We need to eliminate them. Why do RWers support terrorists & murder of kids?”

-Ryan: “The NRA is nothing more than an enabler of mass murder, a terrible organisation that has children’s blood on their hands. Wake up USA.”

-John Cobarruvias: “Can we now shoot the #NRA and everyone who defends them?”

-Stacy Fernandes: “all NRA members need to be rounded up and put in camps where they cant hurt anyone else”

But it is not just gun owners that are being demonized by the mainstream media.  Over the past couple of days there has also been an attempt to portray the mother of Adam Lanza as a deluded prepper that had been preparing “for the end of the world”.  The following quotes from mainstream sources come from a recent article by Daisy Luther

  • Nancy was a member of the Doomsday Preppers movement, which believes people should prepare for end of the world. (Riehl World View)
  • According to reports, Nancy Lanza was a so-called ‘prepper’, a part of the survivalist movement which urges individuals to prepare for the breakdown of society by training with weapons and hoarding food and other supplies.  ( The UK Independent)
  • Reports are starting to emerge of the troubled young man and his unusual upbringing.  (Yahoo)
  • Dan Holmes, owner of a landscaping firm who worked on the family’s home, said she was an avid gun collector: ‘She told me she would go target shooting with her kids.’ (UK Daily Mail)
  • Marsha Lanza described Nancy as ‘self-reliant’.( The UK Independent)
  • He was reportedly homeschooled by his mother, a school principal and gun enthusiast, who wasn’t satisfied with the education her son was receiving.. (Yahoo)
  • As America searches for answers, investigators are turning towards Nancy Lanza’s supposed identification as a survivalist.  (Yahoo)
  • Her former sister-in-law Marsha said she had turned her home ‘into a fortress’.  (UK Daily Mail)
  • Mother of Sandy Hook school gunman Adam Lanza was a ‘prepper’ survivalist preparing for economic and social collapse, say reports. ( The UK Independent)
  • Mrs Lanza is thought to have trained her sons, Adam and Ryan to shoot, even taking them to local ranges. ( The UK Independent)
  • ‘Nancy had a survivalist philosophy which is why she was stockpiling guns. She had them for defense. She was stockpiling food. She grew up on a farm in New Hampshire. She was skilled with guns. We talked about preppers and preparing for the economy collapsing.’  (UK Daily Mail)

Before this crisis I wrote an article entitled “Why Are Preppers Hated So Much?“, and in that article I detailed how preppers and survivalists are increasingly being demonized by the media.

Well, now it is getting a whole lot worse.

As I wrote about the other day, political correctness has taken over America, and the mainstream media is systematically demonizing any group that will not go along with the program.

That includes gun owners.

Sadly, the truth is that if just one teacher or one principal at Sandy Hook Elementary School had been armed, a whole lot of lives could have been saved.  There have been numerous examples of mass shootings that have been stopped by private citizens with guns.  University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds discussed a couple of these in a recent piece for USA Today

If there’s someone present with a gun when a mass shooting begins, the shooter is likely to be shot himself. And, in fact, many mass shootings — from the high school shooting by Luke Woodham in Pearl, Miss., to the New Life Church shooting in Colorado Springs, Colo., where an armed volunteer shot the attacker — have been terminated when someone retrieved a gun from a car or elsewhere and confronted the shooter.

And time after time we have seen crime go down when gun laws are relaxed.  Criminals are much less likely to try something when they know that their targets are likely to be armed.

Here are some more statistics about guns and crime from foxandhoundsdaily.com

* Guns are used 2.5 million times annually or 6,860 times a day. This means that each year, firearms are used more than 80 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than they are to take lives.

* Less than 8 percent of the time, a citizen will kill or wound his/her attacker.

* 200,000 women use a gun every year to defend themselves against sexual abuse

* Citizens shoot and kill at least twice as many criminals as police do every year.

* Only 2 percent of civilian shootings involved an innocent person mistakenly identified as a criminal. The ‘error rate’ for the police, however, was 11 percent, more than five times as high.

Sadly, the collectivists seem absolutely determined to use the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School to unleash a new era of strict gun control laws.

So if you wanted to get a gun to protect your home and your family, you might want to do it now.  The witch hunt has begun, and it will soon become much more difficult to exercise your 2nd Amendment rights.

    Wow. Self-reliant, home-steading, home-schooling, gun-owning preppers are the new enemy, eh? I am so hosed.

    • Jodi

      That is why they are going after guns. The government doesn’t want people to be self-reliant, they want to control you & they think they know what’s best for you!

      • A Dodgy Bloke

        The government once it goes broke, and all the crap that comes with that happens. The feds may not have a choice or many options than to allow people to be self-reliant..

  • 2Gary2

    need to ban semi automatic with large magazine clips. common sense

    • Mark

      Gary, our Founding Fathers felt that we needed to be well armed to keep the government from becoming too powerful. That is why they added the 2nd amendment. They already have the public out gunned. Anyway, most shootings are from hand guns. This shooting would not have happened if the mom would have kept her gus in a safe. I keep all of my guns in a safe. I live way out in the country and if a thief came to steal from my home, at least my guns would be safe.

      • RICHARD

        i want to add to what you said mark when they wrote the second amend. everybody had the same kind of gun the military to. IF S H T F your going to want that banana clip when you have mobs of people coming to your house to kill and rob you. I believe the 2 Amend was written also to protect us from the government.

    • ropeknot

      How about the smaller clips? If the murder only had “many” smaller clips would it have been different?

      I think not since one could have “many” smaller guns with “many” smaller clips and still get the same result or worse .

      What don’t you understand?
      Get armed and save your (our) kids!

    • A Dodgy Bloke

      Gary, if you want to be helpless in the face of the coming storm be my guest, and good luck with that. You and other gun grabbers out there don’t have the right to make that decision for anybody else.

  • tj

    Welcome to the United Socialists of America. Our country is going to be screwed in 2013

    • bob

      Remember it was the elitist media who was in bed with the fascists

  • Concerned Citizen

    This is a well thought out and coherent article. Much better than anything I’ve been hearing from the mainstream media the past few days. Unfortunately, your statistics at the end of this article will only fall on deaf ears. The gun grabbers are too busy pushing their agenda to be inconvenienced by the facts. Those poor kids were not even in the ground before they started in with their nonsense.

    I would steer clear of the bleating sheep and gun grabbing activists for the time being. They’re on a rampage and they will rip you to shreds like a pack of rabid wolves. Stay focused. They’re not the real threat, our legislators and president are. They make and enforce the laws, whether they are constitutional or not.

    Will they pass an assault weapons ban? Hard telling. They’ve been trying since the last one expired in 2004 with little luck. However, this time they have the mainstream media creating a furor and Obama stirring the pot on gun control for the first time since he took office. The perfect storm may be brewing.

    If you’ve been on the fence about buying an AR or AK you may want to look into it very soon. ARs, AKs and high capacity magazines are flying off the shelves as we speak because of all this nonsense.

  • ropeknot

    If one or more of the N.R.A. members (Let alone anyone with a gun) was (Allowed)there, this never would have happened!

  • ropeknot

    Why is it that it’s been ;what? 20 + years since Columbine, and we still can’t (don’t have the ability or right ) to protect our children;the reason we exist ?
    Sounds like a conspiracy to either end the human existence or take our guns away so we not only can’t protect ourselves from whatever the world has already done to ourselves, such as in the past, let alone the ones we are here for; our kids!!!

  • Colin

    First, the writers of the Bill of Rights never envisioned the type of weapons that are now available to the average American. Their guns were primitive by our standards. Each gun was hand-made, was capable of firing one shot, and took time to reload.

    Second, why are people on the right opposed to a police state, but are content to live in a society of armed camps?

    Third, for me, guns have influenced how I approach people. I have been diagnosed as being mentally disabled – I am disabled by an autistic spectrum disorder – and have been rated as having a GFA of 45. This translates to me as having difficulty with socializing with others. I am very careful around people I don’t know, for I fear that with one misstep I may be confronted by a person with a gun who may shot me. Do I want a culture where people live in fear of others? No. There is plenty of anxiety and stress in the day. i don’t know why people would want to add more. It seems counter-productive to me.

    • TJ Jackson

      Seriously now….You want us to take gun advice from a person who admits to being “mentally disabled”…???

    • Timmy the Impaler

      I’m sorry to hear of your mental and anxiety problems. However, you can’t use them to impose your will, as benefits you, on the rest of society. The founding fathers envisioned a society in which the small arms in the hands of The People were to be the same as those in the hands of government troops. Back then, that meant muskets. today, that means automatic weapons. In 50 years, maybe that will mean laser pistols. Whatever small arms “they” get, we get.
      I hope you get whatever help you need to be able to function in society without advocating violation of others’ rights. Very bad things will happen if you’re successful.

  • Jerry

    These knee-jerk liberals are sickening, politicizing tragedy. They’re the ones that are responsible for gun-free zones. They’re the ones with the blood of these poor innocent children on their hands, not the NRA.

    • Gay Veteran

      I’m a liberal with libertarian leanings, own firearms.
      You can’t have a police state and an ARMED population.

  • klediss

    The tragic
    reality is that more and more gun control by those who have an alternative
    agenda is at the forefront of such an attack. Fast and furious was an attempt
    that back backfired. Either way lives were lost or those who are guilty are
    walking free hiding behind smoke and mirrors. This second amendment to the constitution
    is a right but as we all know the extreme left wing democrat’s agenda is
    CONTROL and suppress. Enslavement is more like it with the entitlements and government
    controlled handouts, therefore making more and more dependents on the system
    for their daily living. As we have seen in the past election the mindless entitlement
    masses elected their candidate, therefor securing the feeding they require to,
    stray alive. The have nots have over taken the producers. Now as we see the
    liberal news media is also in bed with present regime, not reporting the truth,
    gray shading all the facts and dumbing done their watchers. The government
    controlled school system every year is cranking out programed liberal young
    minds for the benefit of their goals. I could go on and on, but, think you can
    see the bigger reality that the dems are and have been working on with a 100
    year plan of destruction. While our conservative friends can only muster a one cycle
    at a time attack. But when in the light never return, overturn, turn back,
    undo, and reinstall conservative values that made this country so great. They, sadly
    have NO long term vision. At every turn the over emotional nonfactual dems will
    attack with hate, emotions, flammable subject matter to in any attempt curb the
    truth from being told.

  • A Dodgy Bloke

    I don’t take much notice of what gun
    grabbers, the MSN or other slaves of left think. Jim Rawles once did a article on his web site
    survival blog dot com, about any serious gun control. He said that the massive type of gun control
    the lefties are talking about simply wasn’t feasible, there are simply too many
    guns. At my place of work I discovered
    plenty of gun owners and a couple of
    people I work with one has bought a gun and is looking at getting an AR the
    other is looking seriously at getting a handgun. Neither has own a gun before. With gun sales sky rocketing, the Democrats
    remembering what happened the last time they banned scary looking guns, I don’t
    think much will happen. With BHO putting
    Smoking Joe in charge of the commission on gun violence I’m more convinced than ever the left will
    make allot of noise but, the worse may be a ban on some types of mags if
    that. Whenever a Pol doesn’t want to
    make a decision he form a commission.
    Remember The Grace Commission and the Defect Reduction Commission both
    where formed with fanfare and marching bands, both where ignored.

    the implosion of political correctness as a ‘protector’ has the neo-pagans frantic with fear & denial ..
