I think our fussy little bigot is going into full-retreat, so I might as well strike while the iron is still warm for one last post. There is a little bit left on his blog, but its still just as bigoted as anything else.
So, when I posted Gunfight At The Shopping-Cart Corral, I was making fun of some guy’s rudeness. What kind of Neanderthal flaunts a gun when he goes grocery shopping? At a natural-foods store? At high noon in an upper-middle-class neighborhood? One of my friends commented: “He was using his gun to shoot the nectarines to see which ones were ripe. If the bullet ricochets off, the nectarine isn’t ready to be eaten.”
That’s the second time he felt the need to preface this little tale that it was both an upper-class and WHITE neighborhood.
I thought this little episode had only confirmed my initial assessment about gun-toters as mouth-breathing illiterates.
After he blocked all comments, and deleted his posts. You think there was ever any chance he’d change his mind?
He then talks about a generous gun owner offering to take him to the range. I’d bet my lunch money he doesn’t actually take him up to it, but even if he does, I doubt his mind will move from its fixed position (at least when he’s behind a keyboard). So “J” don’t waste your ammo and your range time. There are plenty of people who think they’re for gun control, but aren’t as openly bigoted.
Evidently Second Amendment enthusiasts feel duty-bound to silence those of us who exercise free-speech rights under the First Amendment.
We’re ignorant illiterate neanderthals? Be careful where you toss those rocks, dude in the greenhouse….
My original article satirized the concept of open-carry, and the target of my humorous rant was a fictional character, who didn’t even have a name. At that time, the idea of concealed-carry did not really bother me. If a gun-toter was smart enough to recognize that the open display of a weapon drastically tilts the perceived power balance between two individuals, then… live and let carry. As my father once said: “You can’t try to reason with a nutcase who flaunts his gun, you can only nod your head and back away slowly.”
Ahhh it was all made up. You think that’s true? And again, look at all the perceived threats of violence. Seems there are a whole bunch of violent death-wishes on Mr. Baird’s blog…maybe its you?
But these barbarians who roam the Internet and try to pick fights have now convinced me that NOBODY should have a gun. If they feel that personal attacks, libels and death threats are appropriate behaviors in the 21st century, how can they be trusted with guns? They shouldn’t even be allowed to carry sharp sticks.
Of course the personal attacks came from you, Mr. Baird, and there were no libels, nor death threats. But I like your little bluff that somehow you MIGHT have changed if it wasn’t for us Mouth-breathing illiterate red-necks.
And bottom line, he’s a liar, but even if he was speaking the truth, we don’t NEED him, and we’re better off without him.
As Joe of course repeats his great point:
Never forget that the anti-gun bigots are the KKK of the 21st Century. Look for opportunities to make that point. Make belonging to the Brady Campaign the equivalent of a membership in the KKK because it’s true.
Kevin Baker has another great post on the issue as well.
Also Linoge takes an interesting stab at all of Mr. Baird’s claims that we’re ignorant. I think we all know that dog don’t hunt!
