I just have to mess with Joan a bit more. The comments to this post are just too damn good!
First up the Post is Joan’s standard aggregate of convenient news stories with Brady and Joyce boilerplate for filler. Remember antis are AGAINST Anecdotal evidence, except when they use it! (Just like Media Matters who posted the article is against carrying of guns…unless they want a bodyguard illegally carrying a gun for their own protection.
But in the Comments come the magic. First Joan Links this story:
Authorities say the suspect charged in the shooting death of a man over a dispute about dog waste had his license to carry a weapon revoked last month.
No word on why the permit was revoked (this is Philadelphia where they revoke permits illegally, but I won’t jump to conclusion) still it appears he was carrying his gun illegally, letting his dogs off their leash illegally, and well, killing somebody. Joan’s response:
The man had been a law abiding permit holder until one month ago. He was very recently law abiding until he wasn’t. So what’s your point?
At this point I’m looking for Joan to claim ALL gang members as “Law Abiding Permit Holders”, just because at some point they were young children without criminal backgrounds! Close enough, right?
I got a chuckle at this, one of Joan’s few supporters said this:
*** It is no accident that the states with the weakest gun laws are the exporters of death and injury.****
Why don’t people get this? It’s not really that complicated.
Or am I missing something?
Joan informed her she was missing nothing and that this was indeed the case….hey a lie repeated often enough! Hon what you’re missing is REALITY! But I think I noted that she’s one of Joan’s Cheerleaders. Mouth open, mind closed and empty!
When one person points out that Cherry-picking from through news does not show trends or even valid points, Joan responds with the typical anti-rights lie:
As long as permit holders are shooting people intentionally or not, we have a problem. The general population are also shooting too many people. There are no excuses for the incidents I write about. Permit holders are supposed to be more careful. That is what you all said would be the case. It’s not working out so well.
Anti-rights people work like a ratchet. They demand restrictions so long as ANY issues exist EVER, and declare a “Success” if it saves “Just one Life”.
They won’t stop until permit holders are 100% safe…but meanwhile won’t even consider defensive shootings, and when they do they demonize the people who protect innocent life.
As I said, it’s a lie. They could care less about public safety, or innocent life. What they care about is banning guns.
Period. Full Stop.
There is no compromise, there is no debate. What’s good for us, and horrible for them is there is no need FOR a debate. We will win so long as we stay the course, and no matter what they do.
