American gun owners are beginning to respond with a fresh, powerful argument when facing anti-gun liberals. Here it is, in its entirety. Ready?
“Screw you.” That’s it. Except the first word isn’t “Screw.”
It’s not exactly a traditional argument, but it’s certainly appropriate here. The fact is that there is no point in arguing with liberal gun-control advocates because their argument is never in good faith. They slander gun owners as murderers. They lie about their ultimate aim, which is to ban and confiscate all privately owned weapons. And they adopt a pose of reasonability, yet their position is not susceptible to change because of evidence, facts or law. None of those matter – they already have their conclusion. This has to do with power – their power.
You can’t argue with someone who is lying about his position or whose position is not based upon reason. You can talk all day about how crime has diminished where concealed carry is allowed, while it flourishes in Democrat blue cities where gun control is tightest. You can point to statistics showing that law-abiding citizens who carry legally are exponentially less likely to commit gun crimes than other people. You can cite examples of armed citizens protecting themselves and their communities with guns. You can offer government statistics showing how the typical American is at many times greater risk of death from an automobile crash, a fall, or poisoning than from murder by gun.
But none of that matters, because this debate is not about facts. It’s about power. The liberal anti-gun narrative is not aimed at creating the best public policy but at disarming citizens the liberal elite looks down upon – and for whom weapons represent their last-ditch ability to respond to liberal overreach.
OUTSTANDING! Go read it all!
I guess the media was too busy pushing the lie that the Lafayette murderer got his gun legally to report that a CHL holder in Ohio stopped a mass shooting today
A 62-year-old Cincinnati man is in jail after pulling two guns and opening fire on four people, including an infant:
A 62-year-old man with a gun in each hand fired at four people – including a 1-year-old boy – before a civilian with a concealed carry permit returned fire and wounded the shooter, cops told FOX19.
Thomas McCary is being held without bond on four counts of felonious assault.
McCary was arguing with a woman around 8 p.m. Sunday night and, when the woman’s brother, Patrick Ewing, approached, McCary pulled out a .38-caliber handgun and fired three shots at him, Cincinnati police said.
Ewing didn’t get hit, but he did get his own gun and returned fire, wounding McCary in the leg. Ewing had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
Ewing provided cover fire allowing the other man, his sister and the baby to retreat as McCary fired at them again. McCary is presently in Hamilton County jail awaiting charges. He will likely face four counts of assault with a deadly weapon
God bless this hero, seems like a story CNN, NBC, etc. would cover, but, no………….. Of course if that CHL holder had not been there, this would be getting LOTS of coverage I would bet.
Pastor Brenda Stevenson says she does not believe church-goers in Charleston would have been easily killed if they had been armed and she is going to lead by example and arm herself in the pulpit.
Stevenson, who is pastor of New Outreach Christian Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, said, “Like I tell everybody – just welcome two new members, Smith and Wesson.”
According to WCSC 5, Stevenson will “take the pulpit with a gun by her side [in August] for the first time.” She says she never thought about it before Charleston, but now believes that attack “may have been stopped if someone inside could have fired back.”
You go pastor!
Army veteran Don Rogers went to a gas station in Sycamore, Georgia, to get change for a $20. The timing of this seemingly innocuous decision—and his decision to carry a handgun—may have saved store clerk Hardeep Benipal’s life:
Today has not been the day Don Rogers was expecting. “I wish the day could’ve went by without this happening,” said Rogers. “I just did what I had to do”
This Vietnam veteran was in this Sycamore gas station getting change for a 20 when his day took a bizarre turn. “I heard somebody say “put the money in the bag”. So I looked up and I seen this gentleman holding a pistol on the clerk,” said Rogers.
Fear quickly came over Rogers, but he knew what he had to do. The gun-carrying veteran pulled his weapon on the robber. “And when I did, he looked over at me and turned my way and I fired a shot. And he grabbed his side and then I fired two more shots before he got out the door,” said Rogers.
Two of the shots hit 18-year old Devin Burton. Burton got into a car driven by, 17-year old Marleigh Agner, and the couple took off down Denham Road, but Burton’s condition worsened so they stopped to call 911.
The sheriff had some words of wisdom
Turner County Sheriff Andy Hester was strongly supportive of Mr Rogers’ decision to pull his gun and fire on Burton.
“People are just sick of people running them up,” said Turner Co. Sheriff Andy Hester. “And robbing, and stealing, and pillaging, and people are tired of it. These people that’ll go out and do this kind of stuff need to realize- it ain’t always gonna fare to their favor, just because they’re a predator.”
