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.

 

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.

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.

 

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?

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?

If David Frum keeps this up, he might replace David Brooks as the worst “Conservative” columnist!

David Frum somehow decided that he should defend Nanny Bloomberg’s idiotic, ineffective and inane soda ban proposal. The result was pathetic, and when I say pathetic, I am talking MSNBS level here!

So let’s defy the trend here and say: Good for Bloomberg. Obesity is America’s most important public health problem, and the mayor has led the way against it. This latest idea may or may not yield results. But it is already raising awareness. Even if it fails to become law, it ought to prod the beverage industry into acting as more responsible corporate citizens.

So, the idea might not actually accomplish anything, but it will raise awareness. Awwww, how touching, let’s all light a candle and sing. Frum continues

Americans drink more soda for the very simple reason: it’s getting cheaper. The inflation-adjusted price of soda has declined by an estimated 48% over the past 20 years. Improvements in packaging account for much of this price decline. It costs barely anything more to manufacture a 64-ounce “double gulp” container than to produce the former standard sizes.

Of course, the fact that it tastes good has NOTHING to do with why we buy it. I would point out to Frum that more and more folks are drinking diet sodas, but why stop him? He is doing such a great job making an ass of himself. Let us look at possibly the most asinine paragraph EVER penned, not counting everything Charles Blow has ever written of course.

Some object that the mayor’s proposal to restrict serving sizes will restrict liberty. But the liberty restricted is not the liberty of the soda-drinker. If they wish, soda drinkers can buy a 2-liter bottle of soda at the grocery for about $1.70 and pour as much of it down their throats as they wish. The liberty that is being restricted is the liberty of the soda seller to manipulate known human weaknesses to the seller’s advantage and the buyer’s detriment.

Good grief! I have headache from reading that. Apparently, Frum forgets that SOME soda “sellers” are COMPLETELY unaffected by this stupid law. And, I suppose that he never thought that restaurants might, you know give REFILLS on those 16oz sodas? Or will Bloomberg have police stationed at all restaurants? Maybe Frum could volunteer for Soda Nanny duty? I am sure Bloomberg  would give him a spiffy uniform and badge reading David Frum Soda Refill Control Czar! Douchenozzle! 

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

Officer Frum, of the intergallactic Soda Strike Force! AKA Captain Douchenozzle

Now, for the BIG FINISH!

But if a restraint on soda serving size will not do everything, it may still do something. Or possibly not. The idea may fail. The idea is an experiment, and most experiments fail. We learn from failure how to design a better effort next time. And when we do at least succeed in this difficult struggle for public health, we will all owe New York’s visionary mayor our thanks for leading the way.

I believe Frum may have actually suffered a stroke before writing that last bit of drivel. Good grief!


So, David Frum might be so upset if Romney or Huntsman is NOT the nominee………..

………that he might just pack his Pragmatic Politics bags, lined with REAL RINO skin so you know they are David Brooks approved, and leave the GOP? Well, I guess that leaves us no choice then. If nominating Perry, or some other candidate beneath the “intellect” of Frum means life in the GOP without Frum, then all I can say is, Let me get that door for you Mr. Frum!

In my column for the National Post, I explain why Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman are the best contenders in the GOP presidential field:

I’m looking for two chief things in a candidate for 2012:

1) The temperament, judgment, deftness and largeness of spirit required in the presidential office; and

2) The creativity and intellect to respond to the global economic crisis – a crisis threatening to actually get worse if (or when) the euro implodes.

Those conditions obviously and categorically exclude the clownish Herman Cain, the daffy Ron Paul, the dim Rick Perry and the firebrand congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

Frum, looks up from looking down his nose on better, and smarter people than him to also criticize Rick Santorum, and Newt as un-presidential. But, allow me to focus on his criticisms of Cain, Bachmann, and Perry here.

First of all, to refer to Herman Cain as a clown is simply childish and stupid. I stopped endorsing Cain because I feel his foreign policy creds are lacking. But, I am fully aware that Cain has accomplished too much in his life to ever be called clownish. Frankly, I can see Frum in big red shoes and a huge red nose a lot more easily than I can Cain.

Now Bachmann has lost some respect in my eyes for her attacks on Perry,  and her whining about her appearance on Jimmy Fallon, I mean come on, Congresswoman, suck it up. You ought to know by now how low the Left is. Playing the Sexism Card ought to be beneath you. But, again, I can respect her for having the guts to fight for, and stand by her principles. I am not so sure I can say that Frum is as gutsy, or principled.

Now, to the attack on Perry as “dim”. Really Mr. Frum? Dim? Have you seen the governors economic record? Have you looked at his plans to reform D.C.? Now, Mr. Frum might disagree with Perry on certain issues, that is fine. He might like Romney or Hunstman better, again, fine. But, to refer to Perry as “dim”?

Is this because he has an accent? Certainly stuffed shirt pricks like Frum are fairly quick to mock a Southern accent as not so smart. I would remind Mr. Frum that a good portion of our Founders were from,the South. Frum might recognize some of their names Madison, Mason, Jefferson, Lee, Washington, Henry among others.

Maybe Frum has just convinced himself that any candidate that is “too Conservative” simply cannot win. Or perhaps Frum is just not really any type of Conservative? Consider his praise for Romneycare

I still think that his Massachusetts health-care plan showed creative leadership on an important problem — even if he himself now declines to defend his own accomplishment.

Yes, that explains a lot! But surely Romney’s issue with changing positions will give Frum pause

Yet it’s also true that Romney has reversed so many of his positions so abruptly that voting for him is like taking a random walk. We can be sure that a Romney White House will be well-run. But what will it do? That’s anybody’s guess.

Is he serious? He says no one has a clue what a Romney White House would do, but we HAVE to nominate Romney? Talk about a dim bulb? What of Hunstman? Why does the all-knowing Frum support the former governor of Utah?

Huntsman, by contrast, has bravely challenged the Republican party’s strident, uncompromising radical style. I also like Huntsman’s willingness to re-examine the Afghanistan commitment and to focus more on the economic challenge from China. On the other hand, Huntsman’s economic platform is pure Wall Street Journal editorial page: Big tax cuts for the highest-income earners, radical cuts in retirement benefits for people now under 55. The more supple Romney has carefully avoided any such radical commitment.

The Washington, D.C., primary is set for April 3. I’ll probably cast a vote that day for Huntsman, if only to show support for a brave and independent-minded candidate — and in hope that a strong Huntsman showing will be interpreted as a call for a more modern and inclusive Republican party.

O.K. Hunstman is a “BIG-TENT” guy, and Frum wants the party to be more modern, you know smarter, you know, like Frum. Oddly, Frum sounds a whole lot like Meghan McCain here. sure he uses bigger words, but in essence he is Meghan in  a business suit. He really can not offer any substantial reason why he frowns on Perry, Bachmann, or Cain, or even why he is so enamoured with Hunstman lr Romney. But, by golly, we stupid rubes better all line up and listen to Frum, or he might take his pragmatism and go home!

Any other nominee would gravely test my commitment to the political party I’ve supported since I entered the United States as a college student in the fall of 1978.

Tell you what David, in my view, the vest thing you can do is to not let the door hit you on the way out!
