Jason Kilgore of Cesefire Oregon has another meaningless guest post.
Hello, my name is Joseph B. Jaskolka, and I am a gun-violence survivor….As the clock struck midnight, and as normal people do in our “civilized” nation, my parents rang in the New Year by banging on pots and pans. I had no idea that people would be firing their guns into the midnight sky, but that is the often painful re-occurrence that people partake in doing….I got maybe a half-block away from my Grandmother’s home before a “Celebratory bullet” pierced my skull. Better yet, when my cousin Jeff ran back in the house to report to an adult to call 911, “Joe’s just lying on the ground, everyone must have thought I was joking”
First up, I’m saddened that this happened, Disgusted by those who fired in the air, and I’m happy that Mr. Jaskolka is doing OK now. Still he is not a “Violence Survivor”. Webster’s defines violence as: “exertion of physical force so as to injure or abuse”. This wasn’t a violent act any more than the car accidents I’ve been in were violent. This was a careless act that resulted in personal injury.
Further I’m curious what the Joyce shills expect to push with this. Police attempted to find and charge the shooters, but because of the range and the random nature they didn’t find them. Still firing a gun in the air IS A CRIME! It also doesn’t matter if it hits anybody or not, tho injury charges can trump things up.
Mr. Jaskolka is being used to push an agenda that has nothing to do with him or his story. This is a classic example of anti-rights blood-dancing.
The fact that they have no issue with it show exactly what is wrong with them as people!
