Images of the Antis: Misdirection

Sometimes I’m just amazed at how crass the bait-and-switch shows up in some of these images. Are there people dumb enough to be fooled by this? Honestly, I think it’s just pure confirmation bias, people seeing what they WANT to see.

First up the sad truth is that ANY state could have a mass shooting of this scale. Hell there have been TWO spree killings in Texas in the last few years, and given Texas’ view on Concealed carry and lethal force, that should be the bane to all spree killers.

But again, both of them were on Fort Hood, so technically not Texas STATE land, but Federal land, and…well we already talked about that.

Still just READ the damn text, Jindal worked hard to get rid of Louisiana’s bullshit carry laws, so now you can carry in Restaurants, bars, and churches.

And his statement was in reaction to a shooting in a Movie Theater with a certain policy.

Straight up bait-and-switch!

Good job, guys!

    It’s even more of a bait and switch because Louisiana requires a carry permit to carry in said locations… which, if the reports are correct, that theater shooter was denied.

    And note the whole “Guns in Churches” pearl-clutching. Funny how people who scream bloody murder at “Xthians” will go all goo-goo for Churches (or the Pope) when it suits their politics.

    But hey, Occupy Democrats *is* a group that wants to have lèse-majesté criminalized and treated as treason. Because no making fun of dear leader is treason!

    At least one commenter here a year or two ago suggested that Americans accept some unlawful gun violence as a price to pay for a historical, unique gun culture. That sounds like a counsel of despair, but it isn’t. Do what you can about domestics and the drug trade while respecting Constitutional norms. Ditto pre-suicidal ideation and behavior. Teach gun and ammo safety universally in school, etc. Get surrogate speakers with Hickok45’s popular touch and expertise to hit the rubber chicken circuit. Make sure black folks and Hispanics hit the speakers’ trail, too. Admit the down side of gun culture.

    I’m not sure what you can do after that. Joan herself (Weerd’s Joan) even counseled acceptance of another country’s cultural peculiarities when she visited Spain a while back. (Hope my memory’s okay.) After citing approvingly Spain’s restrictive gun laws, she notes that she’d been warned about thefts and robberies, but that didn’t deter her from her vacation. Likewise, I suppose, America’s unique gun culture, and high levels of unlawful gun use in a tiny number of political jurisdictions, shouldn’t mislead people into adopting anti-gun/anti-rights positions that don’t make much sense, and don’t solve problems.
