David Frum’s conversion to Liberal now complete

He is, according to his own tweets, hearing those “dog whistles”

Every nonwhite voter can hear the racial paranoia in NRA rhetoric – but alas seemingly no GOP leader can (or dare stand up to it)

Good Grief! But, Frum’s descent into the Pit of Liberal Stupidity does not stop there! He is also spreading lies about gun owners

Fortunately, Americans have never been safer from crime – so gun owners mostly use their weapons to hurt themselves & their loved ones

Frum, you ignorant, hateful little man. Your attempt at sarcasm falls flat because there is no truth in your statement. From the CDC

The CDC found, for example, that the majority of gun-related deaths were due to suicide — not to ghetto-roaming gang-bangers, armed liquor store robbers or brain-addled mass shooters.

“Between the years 2000-2010 firearm-related suicides significantly outnumbered homicides for all age groups, annually accounting for 61 percent of the more than 335,600 people who died from firearms related violence in the United States,” the CDC report said.

In addition, the CDC found that firearms are used more for self-defense than they are in the commission of crimes, noting:

Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year, in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008.

The report also indicated that both accidental firearm deaths and mass shootings account for a tiny fraction of gun-related deaths, and both are actually on the decline.

See David, if you were not so tuned into listening for “dog whistles” you might get some actual facts. But I guess it makes you feel important to look down your nose at people who actually take responsibility for their safety.

An update of sorts, as Frum continues his descent into Moonbat mode, he can stsrt a new business pitching products like these

I wear mine while I Tweet, Thanks David Frum!

Now you too can hear the racist dog whistles

Idiot decides to rob taxi driver, epic FAIL ensues

Those darned Americans! They keep defending themselves with firearms, making Bob Costas, and David Frum look like fools

On March 17th, 2014, at 10:11 p.m. Dubuque Police responded to the area of 2nd and Main Street on the report of a disturbance involving shots fired and a vehicle crash. Upon arrival officers met with a cab driver who reported being the victim of an attempted armed robbery inside his cab, during which he discharged his legally carried firearm in self-defense. A second cab driver in the area attempted to intervene and stop the robbery by crashing his cab into the victim’s cab. After a brief struggle with the cab drivers, the suspect fled the area and was not relocated. Evidence located at the scene indicates the suspect may be injured. He is described as a black male in his 30’s wearing a red hooded sweatshirt. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Dubuque Police Department at 563-589-4415.

I mock Frum, Costas, and those like them that look down their noses at gun owners, and mock the very idea that anyone ever uses a gun to defend themselves

Detroit got a tad safer this week

When linking this from Bearing Arms, I cannot help but think of David Frum, who scoffs at the very notion that Americans use guns in self-defense, and who says idiotic things like those who want to be armed are the last who should be armed

I “blame” the National Rife Association for completely screwing up the anti-gun narrative.

Three different homeowners in Detroit used guns to defend themselves against intruders this week.

Two suspects were shot and killed.

“I think it’s just a matter of the individual homeowners protecting themselves and finally catching up with the criminals in that enough is enough and they aren’t going to take it anymore,” said Detroit Police Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson.

The latest incident happened around 2:00 Saturday morning.  Two men broke into a home on Toledo in southwest Detroit, armed with a tire iron.  The intruders tried to knock out the homeowner, but the homeowner fired back with his gun.  He shot them both and killed one of them, a 21-year-old man.  The other man got away.

The second incident happened around 12:30 Saturday morning on Abington on Detroit’s west side.  A woman had just pulled her car into the garage when a man with a gun appeared out of nowhere.  She dropped her keys on the ground as a distraction and then reached for her own gun and shot and killed him.

These two incidents follow last week’s attempted home invasion stopped by a mother armed with a Hi-Point carbine. The three teens driven out of the home by gunfire were arrested.

Hey Frum, why don’t you tell these folks why they are the last people that should be armed?

Michael Dunn convicted of three counts of attempted murder in “loud music” shooting case. UPDATED!

AS I told someone at work last week, it seems Dunn just went too far, continuing to fire after the threat had been stopped

A Florida jury convicted a white, middle-aged man on Saturday of three counts of attempted murder for opening fire on a car of black teenagers during an argument over loud rap music, but could not reach a verdict on a murder charge for the killing of a 17-year-old in the car.

Michael Dunn, a 47-year-old software engineer, fired 10 rounds at a vehicle carrying four teens in a Jacksonville gas station parking lot in November 2012, killing black teen Jordan Davis.

The jury deadlocked on the most serious charge of first-degree murder against Dunn, forcing Judge Russell Healey to declare a mistrial on that count.

The failure to reach a verdict on the first-degree murder charge is a blow for the prosecution and the Davis family. But Dunn still faces at least 60 years in jail for the attempted murder convictions against the three other teens, legal analysts said.

Prosecutors told a press conference after the verdicts were read that they plan to retry Dunn, who has been in jail since his arrest in 2012, on the first-degree murder charge.

Mr. Dunn will likely be in prison a very long time, and he will no doubt think about those final three shots he fired

Earlier on Saturday, the judge said questions posed by the 12-member jury indicated they thought Dunn was initially justified in firing the first seven bullets to defend himself from Davis, but then went too far by continuing to pull the trigger as the fleeing teens drove off.

The judge speculated that jurors felt Dunn overstepped the limits of self-defense law by shooting a final volley of three bullets after he got out of his car, when the teens no longer represented any kind of threat.

“They may say justifiable use of deadly force was in play to (a) certain point and then it went away. There was no justification for those last set of shots,” the judge said.

Of course, the tragedy pimps were out looking for some publicity and blaming, again, a law that was not part of Dunn’s defense

“The jury did their very best but they were hamstrung by Florida’s Stand Your Ground law,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a non-profit group created in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting in December 2012. “The law basically legalizes armed vigilantes,” Watts said.

And OF COURSE Al Sharpton had to get some face time too’

“The mistrial further sends a chilling effect to parents in the 23 states that have the Stand Your Ground law or laws similar,” said civil rights leader Reverend Al Sharpton, president of the National Action Network. “It requires the Civil Rights community to head into Florida, which is now ground zero for a national fight to change that law,” he added.

Lookout Florida, here come the race pimps and backasswards Bloomberg funded anti self-defense loons again. Concerning the mistake Dunn made, and the falsehoods about Stand Your Ground Bob Owens sums it up at Bearing Arms

You may only legally shoot to stop the threat. Anything beyond that, and you face going to prison for may years to come, as Micheal Dunn has now discovered the hard way. Those of you who insist on “shooting to kill” at all costs once the shooting starts because some non-attorney shared their incorrect “conventional wisdom” are going to be very popular on the prison dating scene.

Note: The media and their citizens control allies are attempting to make the same claims about “stand your ground” laws in this case as they did in the Zimmerman trial. That claim was patently false in both trials. Neither Zimmerman nor Dunn raised “stand your ground” defenses.

Of course, the facts will not deter the Leftists here, they never do. They will lie about Stand Your Ground, and the media will not dare question them on it.

As to the verdict, I cannot argue it. Dunn went too far. This is a valuable lesson for anyone who owns or carries a firearm. You ONLY shoot to stop the threat. That is your right, but when the threat is no more you stop firing.

Now if we can only convince noted buffoon David Frum to stop Tweeting once he is out of worthwhile thoughts

Frum adopted a public facing anti-gun stance in 2013, and continued it with this “brilliant” statement on Twitter last night.

Hypothesis: the people who most want to carry are the very last people on earth who should be allowed to carry.

— davidfrum (@davidfrum) February 16, 2014

Numerous people pointed out the absurdity of Frum’s position, which made for an interesting story on Twitchy.

To be a supporter of citizen control requires a refutation of human history. It requires supporters to bury the long history of disarmed subjects being turned upon by their own governments and slaughtered in democides (262 million in the 20th century, alone).

Correspondingly, to be a citizen control supporter, you must adopt a “it can’t happen here” mentality that somehow the nature of government and the nature have man that led to such a massive loss of life in our lifetimes have both changed, recently and tremendously, without evidence, towards altruistic and benign ends… even as government seeks more power and more control of the citizenry across ever facet of society.

Most terrifyingly, citizen control relies upon the belief that the government should deal with “undesirables” in society by turning them into an other that can be identified, marginalized, turned into an “other,” and then marked for destruction at the hands of government for the better of society… the exact same mindset that makes democides possible.

@davidfrum Hypothesis: the people who most want to curtail liberties are the very last people on earth who should be allowed to touch them.

— Bob Owens (@bob_owens) February 16, 2014

Expert Frum to continue to call for the destruction of long-standing core individual liberties in deference to his new-found love of the state.

Frum is a clear case of how “well-educated” means nothing without common sense and practical knowledge. Educated beyond his hat size Frum is. I would pay good money to watch Frum debate Bob Owens on this issue.

And again! Armed home invader dead two more running for their lives

Liberals like to lie about self-defense by armed Americans. they like to say it almost never happens, and anyone foolish enough to arm themselves will certainly end up a tragic victim. Sorry, but the numbers belie such scare tactics by the Left. Fact is, guns are used far more often for good than for bad. Three home invaders in South Carolina would attest to that, except that one is now dead, and the others are running

At least one of the six residents of a rented home in Forest Acres, SC armed themselves when a trio of armed home invaders, and put one violent thug who was out on bail for another crime in the ground for good:

The suspect killed in a shootout at a Forest Acres residence was out on bond awaiting trial for another violent crime at the time of Monday night’s home invasion.

DeShawn T. Patterson, 23, was one of three suspects who entered a home in the 3500 block of Linbrook Drive just before midnight Monday, firing handguns into the air and demanding money, Forest Acres Police Chief Gene Sealy said at a news conference.

Patterson was shot by one of the home’s six occupants in an exchange of gunfire and died at the scene of wounds to the upper body and head, Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said.

The two other suspects, both males, fled on foot through several backyards in the area and were last seen jumping a fence along Two Notch Road, Sealy said. They were still at large Tuesday night.

David Frum could not be reached for a snarky Tweet mocking gun owners.

Yeah, it is like that Frum guy says, no American ever uses their gun in self-defense

Alternate title? Elderly Minnesota man kills armed intruder, world’s most self-important douche bag hardest hit

 

Chalk up another one for the good guys with guns.

Pine County Deputies responded to the home of an elderly man on reports of a shooting.

When they got there the homeowner told them that two men had entered his house on the Fox road near Sandstone in what appeared to be a robbery attempt.

The Sheriff’s office reports at least one of the suspects was armed with a handgun and confronted the homeowner. The homeowner grabbed a handgun of his own and shot the armed suspect killing him.

For those that do not understand why I take David Frum to task over many self-defense stories, allow me to explain. Frum had a fun old-time mocking the idea that anyone actually uses a gun in self-defense after the Newtown shootings, so, I responded by tweeting links to self-defense stories to Frum. He never responded, so, I take every opportunity to poke the cowardly little snot who pretends to be a Conservative while he kisses Liberal’s asses at Beltway cocktail parties.

And for those of you who might be thinking that I have a genuine hatred for Frum, you are correct. I have less respect for Frum than I do for those who admit they are Liberal. At least they are up front with their ideology.

 

Is every Republican Pundit named David an idiot??

I only ask this question because David Frum, whom I despise, and David Brooks are both idiots. Brooks is the media’s favorite Republican, AKA  a useful idiot. He got the role of favored Republican because he goes on TV and says the things about Conservatives that the media wants to hear. Stacy McCain, who holds no respect for Brooks either, takes great pleasure in sharing this video clip of Brooks being verbally horse-whipped for being, well, a idiot!

Appearing on “Meet the Press,” David Brooks declared that intellectual strength commands support for the Gang of Eight bill:

“You know, I’ve seen a lot of intellectually weak cases in this town. I’ve rarely seen as intellectually a weak case is the case against the Senate immigration bill.”

And then Rep. Raul Labrador ripped Brooks to tatters:

OUCH! That will leave a mark

 

Too bad David Frum was not there to reign in this miscreant gun owner

Via Guns Save Lives comes this

According to Live5news.com, 17-year-old Deion Watson and 23-year-old Markel Jovan Wright were about to pull of their third armed robbery in a matter of days, if not for the efforts of one brave, gun carrying citizens.

Wright and Watson had just allegedly robbed their third Kangaroo gas station in South Carolina. To make matters even more dire, the duo fired a parting shot at the clerk this time, grazing his arm.

Hearing the commotion, the private citizen, who was filling his car with gas, grabbed his own gun, and confronted the suspects at gunpoint as they exited the store. Wright fled the scene, but Watson stayed and was captured by police.

Wright was captured shortly thereafter in his hometown. Wright was taken into custody and denied bond due to other pending charges against him. Wright is also charged with stealing $3,000 from an area Wal-Mart where he was briefly employed as well as attempted murder in a February 2012 incident.

Watson was issued a $200,000 bond, which he was unable to post, so he also remains behind bars.

No other details are available on the good samaritan at this time.

This is also a great example of a defensive gun use in which no shots were fired, no one was harmed, and the bad guys ended up in jail. Because no shots were fired, this incident will most likely not be included in statistics regarding guns used in self defense.

Consider that last line again Because no shots were fired, this incident will most likely not be included in statistics regarding guns used in self-defense. People who use “stats” to argue that very few Americans ever use their guns for good ends, like self-defense or to stop crimes, use skewed stats. The vast majority of Americans who use guns in self-defense never fire their weapon, so those numbers are buried, out of sight. Foolish people, and by foolish people I mean David Frum, who eat up the skewed stats that gun control advocates put out, never bother to look behind the numbers to see the real stats. Frum, and his ilk, would prefer to look down their noses at gun owners, and mock those who defend themselves with guns. Frum was doing this for a while on Twitter. Most deplorable was this one

 

When the news of the school shooting first surfaced, my first reaction was anger. Again? Again?!I ventilated that anger in a bitter Tweet:

 davidfrum @davidfrum

 Shooting at CT elementary school. Obviously, we need to lower the age limit for concealed carry so toddlers can defend themselves.
14 Dec 12

After that, Frum followed up with more smart-ass tweets mocking the very idea that any American ever used guns in self-defense. I reacted by tweeting story after to story about Americans using guns for self-defense to Frum. Big shock, he never replied, Intellectual cowards like Frum never do. Like most Liberals, or “Moderate Republicans” Frum does not live in the real world, so expecting him to think outside his Beltway Box in unthinkable.

Well THAT is inconvenient for the gun control nuts

From the CDC comes a report that proves just how wrong on gun rights the Left is, at Guns.com, we find this nugget

The Committee on Priorities for a Public Health Research Agenda to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence, under the direction of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, recently published a study of findings related to violence and guns. Some of the results may come as a shock – to those on both sides of the gun control argument.

The study was conducted as part of the 23 Executive Actions signed by President Obama in January in an effort to reduce gun violence. The order specifically called to “issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.”

Who says everything Obama does is bad? Certainly this study reveals some very crucial information about defensive gun uses, and confirms our basic right to own guns

“An individual’s right to own and possess guns was established in the U.S. Constitution and affirmed in the 2008 and 2010 Supreme Court rulings in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago.”

OK very good, but now, the best parts

According to the study, “Unintentional firearm-related deaths have steadily declined during the past century.” Accidental deaths resulting from firearms accounted for less than one percent of all unintentional fatalities in 2010.

“Mass shootings are a highly visible and moving tragedy, but represent only a small fraction of total firearm-related violence. … It is also apparent that some mass murder incidents are associated with suicides. However, the characteristics of suicides associated with mass murders are not understood.”

The Left has done their best to convince us that mass shootings are on the rise, they are not. The Left also has consistently mocked the very idea of Americans using guns in self-defense, David Frum, every Democrat’s favorite Republican has also made light of the idea that many Americans use guns to stop crimes. OH David, facts can be really inconvemient

Yet the study also looked at the effect of having firearms available for self-defense, and found that firearms are much more likely to be used in a defensive manner rather than for criminal or violent activity.

“Defensive uses of guns by crime victims is a common occurrence, although the exact number remains disputed. Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year, in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008.”

It was also discovered that when guns are used in self-defense the victims consistently have lower injury rates than those who are unarmed, even compared with those who used other forms of self-defense.

OUCH! That has to sting the gun grabbers on the Left. Allow me to make that sting last a bit longer. Given the lowest estimate of 500,000 defensive gun uses, and given that there are 365 days in a year, we can say that AT LEAST 1,370 Americans use firearms to defend themselves against criminals EVERY DAY! If you take the highest estimate, you get a total of 8,219 per day. Likely the real number is somewhere in between those two numbers. Any way you look at it though, numbers do not lie. The violent crime rate would be MUCH higher if the Left had their way.

 

 

 

Couple defends themselves with AR-15, media silence is deafening

Where is the news media? Where is David Frum and his smart ass tweets mocking those who defend themselves with guns?? Oh that’s right, they ignore these inconvenient stories. Matt at Conservative Hideout does not though

The much maligned AR-15 was used to defend a couple from a home invader.  The media silence is deafening.  Mr Conservative has the details…

A couple whose names are being withheld by police were outside of their apartment on Friday, when Jasper Brisbon, who they said appeared to be on drugs, walked up and began staring at them. He did this for several minutes as the couple grew increasingly uncomfortable. Eventually, they decided to go inside of their apartment to get away from Brisbon, but he followed them.

At that point, the man grabbed his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and told Jasper Brisbon to leave. Brisbon refused his request and started moving towards him in a threatening manner. That’s when the man shot him in the chest and sent Brisbon to the ground. Afterwards, the man called police.

Just another of those stories the Left insists never happen

 

Possibly the most inane, rambling, incoherent piece of writing I have ever suffered through

Charlotte and Harriet Childress have penned an article for the Washington Post that is so bad, so devoid of anything even approaching intelligent, that it makes columns by David Frum and David Brooks seem worthwhile. This screed is so bad that Meghan McCain would mock it. Here are some lowlights, as in very dim bulbs

White men have much to discuss about mass shootings

Imagine if African-American men and boys were committing mass shootings month after month, year after year. Articles and interviews would flood the media, and we’d have political debates demanding that African-Americans be “held accountable.”

Have these two ladies ever heard of Chicago? Black men and boys are slaughtering people, mainly other Black men and boys in Chicago. NO, most of the shootings are not “mass shootings” but the death toll is in the “mass” hundreds annually. And, the politicians, which these two nimrods think would be demanding accountability are silent. In fact most of the blame for “gun deaths” because being shot is somehow worse than being strangled or stabbed to death from politicians and the media is on law-abiding gun owners. Good grief, these two numb skulls disprove their entire theory in the first paragraph! No wonder the Washington Post could not wait to run it!

Oh and it gets worser and worser as these two buffoons keep digging in the Eternal Pit of Liberal Stupidity

If life were equitable, white male gun-rights advocates would face some serious questions to assess their degree of credibility and objectivity. We would expect them to explain:

What facets of white male culture create so many mass shootings?

So many? Seriously? There very, very few mass shootings in America. Of course the media sensationalizes them, and they are horrific but very rare. Far more common are Americans defending themselves with firearms, sorry I do not know the breakdown along racial lines, skin color is unimportant to me

Why are so many white men and boys producing and entertaining themselves with violent video games and other media?

Why do so many White men play violent video games? Well, because they are fun, certainly more fun than sloshing our way through the incoherent ramblings of the Childress sisters. Of course, to be fair, sawing your own thumbs off is likely more fun than reading what these two write.

Why do white men buy, sell and manufacture guns for profit; attend gun shows; and demonstrate for unrestricted gun access disproportionately more than people of other ethnicities or races?

Because there is a long tradition of gun ownership and self-defense here in America. Of course many women and many minorities also honor these traditions, and many White men oppose them, but the Childress Sisters of the Traveling Stupidity are too obsessed with skin color to note that obvious fact. Just yesterday, at the gun range, I was shooting next to two folks qualifying for the CHL’s. One was a young Black woman. Being a man, and therefore a sexist, just ask any Feminut, I noted that she was quite pretty. Two things stopped me from asking her out. First was that she is likely 15- 2o years younger than me. The second thing was that she is a better shot than me. And at some point I would likely make her angry, so….. I kid of course. I never feel threatened at the range. The young woman was entirely comfortable as well.  Imagine that, a White man A.K.A. The Source of All Evil according to the Childress sisters, flirting with a black woman at a gun range! I am sure the Childress sisters’ heads would explode!

Why are white male congressmen leading the fight against gun control?

Hmmm, Like Ted Cruz? Tim Scott? Marsha Blackburn? You can bet that Allen West would be fighting against this too, as would Mia Love, if they had been elected last November. The glaring fact is that MOST of Congress are White men, and MOST of those  fighting FOR gun control are White men too!

I guess that escaped the minds of the sisters too? Well of course

it did they are college faculty!

Harriet and Charlotte are consultants, authors, and college faculty who have researched, written, and spoken about issues related to social and political change for more than two decades. They have presented their work in person to thousands of people through more than fifty seminars or speeches in ten states. Charlotte and Harriet have published two books and eighteen articles.

Collectively, Charlotte and Harriet have:
• Earned eight college degrees, including one Ph.D. and four master’s degrees.
• Taught college for forty years: pharmacy, engineering, math, physics, chemistry.
• Received close to a million dollars in grants from the National Science Foundation to research math, science, 
   technology, and engineering education.
• Worked eleven years in R&D and manufacturing in Fortune 500 companies and NASA.

Charlotte and Harriet are identical twins who live near each other in Oregon. They are active in their communities, serving on boards of public and historic parks, schools, and neighborhood and community organizations. They enjoy long walks, camping, commuting by bicycle/walking/bus, organic gardening, cycling, dancing, reading, needlework, backpacking, and cuddling with beloved cats and dogs.

And, as children they fell out of the Stupid Tree, hitting every branch on the way down apparently! These two women are obviously highly educated, yet seem to be completely devoid of any common sense. Their “expertise” seems to be in engineering, math, physics, and chemistry. It certainly is not in the subject they are writing about here. Instead they feel, rather than think their way through what they write in the Post. It is like I say, they are educated beyond their hat size

Wanted Fugitive Shot by Kansas Farmer

Still waiting on snarky Tweets from noted tool David Frum about how no one ever defends themselves with a gun

WELLINGTON, Kan. (TheBlaze/AP) – Authorities have identified a 42-year-old Iowa fugitive who was fatally shot by a farmer in south-central Kansas.

Sumner County Sheriff Darren Chambers says Joseph L. Lamasters, of Creston, Iowa, was wanted in that state for a probation violation stemming from drug charges.

KSN-TV reports Kansas authorities began searching for Lamasters after he left his ID at a Kansas Turnpike tollbooth Monday, apparently to retrieve money to pay the toll. That’s when authorities learned he was wanted in Iowa.

Lamasters ran into a wooded area and was spotted later Monday afternoon by a farmer. The farmer says he opened fire after Lamasters jumped out from a pile of feed sacks and threatened to kill him.

The sheriff says it was self-defense and he does not expect the farmer to be charged.

Oh no, even more bad news for Frum

On Tuesday night, an armed would-be robber approached a Miami man outside his apartment building and demanded his belongings.

Though it is not clear why, the robber then shot the victim in the hand. He didn’t know it at the time, but it would turn out to be a senseless violent act that cost him his life.

The victim, whose injury was said to be non-life threatening, then pulled out his own handgun in self-defense and shot his attacker several times. The violent robber later died at Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital due to his injuries.

What? No smart-assed comments Frum? Maybe he is too busy licking the boots of the DC elites

Your Marxist Moron of the Day is…….

The RINO of all RINOs David Frum, who urges President Obama to go after guns no matter what, Congress does, or what the will of the people is. 

Obama needs a ‘Plan B’ on guns — David Frum, CNN

On guns, President Obama needs a “Plan B.”

The president himself recognizes that the votes probably aren’t there to pass any significant gun legislation through Congress. In his State of the Union address, he was reduced to pleading with Congress to allow a vote at all, never mind actually enact anything. [...]

Fifty years ago, Americans contended with similar public ignorance — and similar industry misinformation — about the hazards of cigarette smoking. The argument was settled by the famous surgeon general’s report of 1964.

See, Frum just says we are all too stupid to know what enlightened Nanny Statists like him know, that guns are bad! How lucky we are to have useful idiots intellectual elites like Frum to save us from ourselves. I mean who needs all those icky liberties anyway?

Congress in the mid-1990s forbade the federal government to fund its own research into the health risks presented by guns. By now, however, enough research has been done by privately funded scholars that the surgeon general could write a report based on existing material. Such a report would surely reach the conclusion that a gun in the home greatly elevates risks of suicide, lethal accident and fatal domestic violence. The first step to changing gun policy is to change public attitudes about guns, as Americans previously changed their attitudes about tobacco and drunken driving.

Of course, Frum likes to ignore all the times that Americans use guns to defend themselves, something he says almost never happens, although it happens more often than all those incidents he mentions above. What Frum wants is a government led propaganda campaign to demonize guns. He would feel better if we did not have that whole right to self-defense, another one of those liberties elites like Frum think we should not have. Of course, we can find reports right now that show that many things are more dangerous than guns, would Frum cede the power to demonize those to Congress as well?

The surgeon general can lead that attitude change with more authority than any other public official.

YES! Our attitudes are out of line, at least according to Frum, and we need attitude adjustments. Man, it is too bad Frum was not around to straighten out those kooky Founding Fathers way back when. Natural rights? Not in Frumland boys and girls!

The second step that might be taken — again without the need for any congressional vote — is for the Senate to convene hearings into the practices of the gun industry analogous to those it convened into the tobacco industry in the 1990s

AHA! Yes, those gun companies advertise their products! How evil can they get? Besides, guns are evil, just ask Frum the Elite.

 

More heartache for David Frum as three Americans use handguns to defend themselves

How insensitive of these three. Don’t they know how hard they are making it for David Frum to Tweet smart ass things mocking self-defense and gun owners?

In Detroit, MI two teens, 16-and 17-year old brothers, tried to rob two men working on a public lighting pole. The brothers pulled out a weapon and aimed it at the workers; one of the workers has a carry conceal permit and was armed at the time. He shot both of the teens, who are now recovering in the hospital. The workers were questioned and released.

A robber in Phoenix, AZ was not so lucky. A man arrived home and saw his carport door was wide open. He decided to enter through the front door and found his house ransacked. Two suspects escaped through the carport door, while two more ran out of the bedroom. One of them followed the other two out of the door, but 16-year-old Mario Barcenas decided to run at the homeowner.

Unfortunately for Barcenas the homeowner was carrying his gun. He took it out and shot Barcenas with one round. He was taken to the hospital and later died. Police are investigating, but said the homeowner was acting in self-defense and no charges have been filed against him.

Poor Frum, you poor ignorant, over-educated bastard!

 

Media whitewashes crazed ex-cop’s manifesto

Over at The Other McCain, Stacy notes this tidbit about Christopher Dorner’s and his manifesto

ABC News reports:

The rage-filled “manifesto” written by former police officer Christopher Dorner before he went on an alleged cop killing spree around the Los Angeles area was dismissed by the head of the Los Angeles Police Department today as “self-serving” and “ramblings on the Internet.”

Well of course it is “self-serving” and rambling, manifestos are rambling, incoherent and self-serving, If you do not believe me, read the Communist Manifesto sometime, talk about Cukoo for Cocoa Puffs! But, the real story is not what the LAPD is pointing out. The real story is that the media is downplaying, completely ignoring this nuts manifesto.

Indeed. The major media have tried to suppress the ugly truth about Chris Dorner’s motives and ideology by publishing a truncated version of his Facebook “manifesto” that omits the evidence that this mass murderer is, in fact, a liberal Democrat. Sooper Mexican got hold of the entire manifesto that makes the truth obvious enough:

No more Virginia Tech, Columbine HS, Wisconsin temple, Aurora theatre, Portland malls, Tucson rally, Newtown Sandy Hook. Whether by executive order or thru a bi-partisan congress an assault weapons ban needs to be re-instituted. Period!!!
Mia Farrow said it best. “Gun control is no longer debatable, it’s not a conversation, its a moral mandate.”
Sen. Feinstein, you are doing the right thing in leading the re-institution of a national [assault weapons ban]. Never again should any public official state that their prayers and thoughts are with the family. That has become cliche’ and meaningless. Its time for action.

Well, how about that? pretty strange isn’t it? I mean here is a guy, OK a nutcase with a rambling manifesto, who abhors mass shootings and “assault weapons”. And to show how much he cares about the victims of gun violence, he is shooting people! that, my friends is grade-A crazy! Of course, Dorner also shows another sure sign of certified lunacy by praising Dianne Feinstein, and Mia Farrow.

“Mia Farrow said it best” — yeah, that’s the kind of sentence that practically screams “diminished mental capacity.”

“Sen. Feinstein, you are doing the right thing” — another telltale clue that we are dealing with a deranged mind.

So, what if the killer had a manifesto that even used the words Tea Party? What if he, in any way, mentioned Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, or any Conservative blog? Would the media be ignoring that as unimportant? Yeah, I know, silly question. And of course, you David Frum would be Tweeting like a mofo ripping gun owners, and trying to stay relevant.

 

72-year-old man shoots, kills intruder

And still no smart-assed Tweets from David Frum mocking the idea that many Americans use guns in self defense?

A 72-year-old homeowner immediately retrieved his handgun when he heard several home intruders attempting to gain entry to his Las Vegas residence early Monday morning. And when the criminals entered his bedroom, he opened fire, killing one of the suspects and sending the rest fleeing, KLAS-TV reports.

“Several intruders, had gotten into the home, entered his bedroom and he fired at least one shot, and they fled,” Metro Police Officer Bill Cassell said. “It is unusual, first of all, to have multiple people burglarizing a residence, especially when they are carrying weapons.”

When police eventually arrived at the Las Vegas home, they found one of the intruders trying to escape in a car. The car hit a patrol car and then the suspect attempted to flee on foot, however, police were able to take the man into custody.

A second suspect, described as a Latin male, was last seen running from the neighborhood where the attempted robbery took place. He remains at large. Police found a third male, armed with a handgun, dead in the homeowner’s backyard. The cause of death was determined to be a gunshot wound.

Glad this did not happen in David Frum’s America

 

David Frum writes, readers get headches!

To be fair, a bad column can happen to any writer, but, with Frum, it is habitual

In Josh Marshall’s post on being a “non-gun person,” he tells a story about visiting gun-owning family friends as a young boy and unintentionally pointing a real gun at a little girl.

But this kind of mishap does not happen only to non-gun people.

My wife’s family are gun people. I mean, real guns. Her grandfather was decorated for gallantry at Vimy Ridge and went on to found the Canadian armored corps. Her father served in World War II and Korea, and then worked for years as a foreign correspondent covering wars from Congo to Vietnam. He was a dozen feet away when Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald – and was filmed by another news reporter running toward the sound of gunfire.

Frum then goes on to describe an incident in his family where a gun was used irresponsibly, sort of like Frum uses his writing software irresponsibly, and someone almost got shot. OK to be fair, my family has always had guns, so did just about everyone I grew up with. Number of accidents? ZERO! Well except for my Uncle Earl who went a little nutty after drinking bourbon and reading too many David Frum columns. Damn if he did not shoot his computer! So, my Aunt Karen made a firm rule, no more reading more than one inane column from the Frumster a week. Because really now, does anyone NEED to read David Frum? Exit question. Is it me, or does Frum write like a Liberal pretending to be a Republican so he can gain approval from Beltway Liberals?

Pharmacy owners shoots, kills gunman, second gunman in costudy

Still waiting for some snarky “look at me” tweets from noted douche nozzle David Frum. Story at Weasel Zippers

MADERA, Calif. (KFSN) – The second suspect in a deadly shooting has been arrested in Southeast Fresno. He’s accused of trying to kill a Madera pharmacy owner and his mother.

The shooting happened inside the pharmacy on Almond and Emily Way around 6:30 pm.

The pharmacy owner Bryan Lee said he left the back door of his store unlocked for a customer stopping by after business hours. Shortly after the customer left, Lee said two men in ski-masks barged in through the back door and started shooting.

The mother and son said they ducked behind the counter as bullets kept flying. One of them hit the mother in the leg. “It was not a robbery so much as an execution,” Lee said. “It was an attempted assassination, they didn’t make any demands, they simply came in, reached over, and it was basically shooting us almost in the back of the head.They shot my mother and almost shot me, I was just surrounded by holes.”

Lee grabbed a gun and started shooting at one of the two suspects.

Police Chief Steve Frazier said he had information that the suspect was shot in the face, in the torso, and then once in the leg.

Frazier said the suspect, 31-year-old Aquilla Bailey, fell to the floor, and then managed to run out of the store and down the block before collapsing. Bailey later died at the hospital.Officers spent the day searching for the second suspect and piecing together a possible motive.

“The information we’ve developed is that the pharmacy was targeted probably specifically for the drugs on hand there, we don’t have any information that the owner was specifically targeted at this point,” Frazier said.

 

 

Mother shoots home intruder, pompous ass David Frum hardest hit

David Frum has taken great pleasure in mocking gun owners, and the idea that Americans defend themselves with guns and even victims of Sandy Hook since the Sandy Hook atrocity. so I have a special hatred in my heart for Frum, and self-important pricks like him. Frum is a pathetic little man, clearly educated past his hat size who looks down his nose at real Conservatives. So, I am going to try and remember to mention Frum whenever I post a story about an American using a firearm to protect their lives.

Via Say Anything

WSB TV

A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday.

The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.

But the man eventually found the family.

“The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.

The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.

“She’s standing over him, and she realizes she’s fired all six rounds. And the guy’s telling her to quit shooting,” Chapman said.

Too bad she ran out of bullets. I wish Frum had to look this women, who has more balls than Frum ever will, in the eye and tell her why she is less safe with a gun.

Texas boy goes on shooting spree with assault rifle, two home invaders hardest hit

English: David Frum. Image source is a screen ...

Educated beyond his hat size

A 15-year-old boy, protecting his 12-year-old sister from two home invaders with an, wait for it, assault rifle? Gee, I wonder what smart-assed comments  David Frum would make about this

I wonder what Frum and his over inflated sense of self-importance would say to mock this little girl?

I wonder what Frum, who says guns do not make anyone safer would say to this guy?

What do you think Frum?

Come on Frum, you bloated bag of arrogance? You want to make some smarmy remarks about this kid?

How about this woman Frum? You want to castigate her?

Or this one

The fact is, I could post these stories all day long. Tens of thousands of Americans use guns in self defense every year. I would ask David Frum, Piers Morgan, the crew at MSNBS, Michael Moore and the rest of the gun control zealots just one question. Would you prefer that these people not have been able to protect themselves? And I wonder if Roland Martin would be suggesting we show the carnage if these people had not been armed?
