Spot the bigot

Gun nuts could kill Obama:

America is filled with gun nuts, and any one of them could turn Obama into Martin Luther King Jr. at any moment.

Update: more here.

    Oops…I accidentally posted this in his comments

    “America is filled with gun nuts, and any one of them could turn Obama into Martin Luther King Jr. at any moment.”

    That is the most obnoxious, bigotted remark I’ve heard in a long time.

    Sorta like saying “America is full of middle-aged, balding guys with 1970’s style beards and glasses, and any one of them would love nothing more than to play Dungeons and Dragons while assaulting the 9-year-old girl they just kidnapped”

    Stereotypes suck, don’t they?

    that’s harsh. i think i’d have stopped at the D&D reference.

  3. Gunstar1 Says:

    Obama has done what exactly? Ran for office.
    MLK ushered in the civil rights movement.

    No a bullet would just make Obama dead, it would not turn him into MLK.

  4. Kristopher Says:

    Hmmm … if anyone shoots Obama, it will be someone in the Hitlery camp.

    Stay away from parks and civil war cannons, dude …

  5. Billll Says:

    Not MLK. Vince Foster maybe.
    Watch your back, O-man.

    Why? Implying that all gun nuts are potential assassins is pretty harsh, too. Even harsher, albeit barely so, than accusing them of playing D&D.

    You keep refusing to take responsibility for those who shouldn’t have guns, who use them to kill their fellow citizens. Still.

    It doesn’t matter if they have a gun and you have a gun. If they get the drop on you then BANG! You’re dead. And nothing — not even the death penalty — will ever bring you back.

    Barely 10% of Americans had any kind of gun when the Bill of Rights was passed. The Second Amendment was meant as a guarantee of control over those weapons, not a guarantee they could go out of control.

    Why would I? They’re not me.

    Referring to information by discredited academic fraud Bellisiles? Tsk, tsk.

    Try again. We’ll be here.

    Xrlq, Uncle –

    After we go to the range, I’ll reserve two spots at the gaming table for you. Bring your own dice. 😉

    Blankenhorn –

    When will you take responsibility for those who seek to disarm the law abiding, making ready-made victims for those that don’t bother to follow the law in the first place?

    OK, I’ll take some responsibility. Next time I come across someone who should not have a gun, yet used a gun to commit homicide, I’ll kill the bugger. Would that make you any happier?

    (“Should not have a gun”, in whose opinion? Since you want me to take responsibility, I assume I get to set that standard. Don’t worry, I’ll be lenient; I like guns, after all.)

    I’ve seen this one from the anti-gunners a lot.

    But if you don’t have a gun, Bang! your dead whether they have the drop on you or not. At least you have a chance if they don’t have a drop on you and if you’re armed. A firearm isn’t a magic talisman, it just evens up the odds a bit.

  12. SayUncle Says:

    I’ve seen this one from the anti-gunners a lot.

    Yeah but it also applies to baseball bats, cars, hands, and anything that can be used as a weapon.

    A firearm isn’t a magic talisman

    To anti-gunners it is. It introduces violence where none existed before. They have magical powers.

    Blankenhorn
    When will certain people in this country stop trying to pass on responsibility to others? No one is ever responsible for their own actions anymore, someone else is always responsible. Some mentally ill person gets a gun and goes on a rampage and we are responsible? Not the person, because they are mentally ill; not the family of the person, because they could not bear the shame that their loved one was ill; not the mental health doctors, because they are bound by idiotic privacy laws; not the medical privacy advocates, who felt that a persons dangerous mental condition is protected information and should not be shared with law enforcement.

    I fail to see how gun owners are responsible.

    Nonsense. As others have noted, you take responsibility for your own actions, unless you are a totalitarian, then you take responsibility away from everyone by making them slaves to the government. Criminal law already deals with people who act badly. The vast majority of gun laws seek to control those who are innocent, and especially those who are the “wrong color.” A good portion of gun control laws started out as racist attempts to keep guns out of the hands of Obama-looking people. As they still do. Look at the cities that have the most draconian gun control. Then look at which cities have large african-american or hispanic populations. Lotsa matches there.

    It doesn’t matter if they have a gun and you have a gun. If they get the drop on you then BANG! You’re dead. And nothing — not even the death penalty — will ever bring you back.

    Again, more nonsense. “If they get the drop on you…” is a clue you’ve been watching — and believing — too many movies. Actually go read the newspaper on actual armed citizen-thug interactions (that is, genuine, everyday Joe Sixpackcitizens who can be expected to obey the law — you know, the kind you want to disarm with laws — versus thugs. Not two gangbangers — you know, the kind that don’t pay any attention to your laws — sorting out their “turf”). Even with the element of surprise, thugs do very badly when confronting armed citizens. They are generally killed, wounded, and/or driven away, with the citizen receiving little, if any harm. Not a perfect record — nothing is a guarantee but it’s the way to bet. However, if you want a sure bet, disarm the citizens. Without fail crime and violence will go up. Ask Britain.

    Also check the National Crime Victimization Survey. Citizens who resist thugs “who get the drop on them” (which of course is everyone accosted by a thug) do suffer less injury those who “give them what they want.” The citizens who suffer the least injury, who are most effective in resisting, use — you guessed it — guns.

    Yes, the readers above caught you out on this one. Face it — Bellisiles was a fraud, and more importantly, so was his work. Not just a couple footnotes. If you’ll pardon the expression, shot through and through with fraud, falsehood, deceit, in every element. Columbia, no bastion of the NRA, examined the smallest possible subset of his work and STILL had to give him the boot. The fact that you would base any argument at all on this rubbish illustates the bankruptcy of the gun control movement.

    Wow, really? Hm. Makes me wonder what percentage of Americans had any kind of printing press back then.
