What’s this “we” shit, Hogg?

Such a hero.

David Hogg Brings Gun Control Message To Mayors Conference In Boston
“We can’t keep hosing the blood down our streets, repairing the shattered windows and bullet-riddled doors and burying our young because when we bury our young we bury our future,” Hogg said.

Seriously? You have cleaned and sanitized a blood spill? You’ve patched bullet holes?

C’mon; have you ever even fixed a smashed window?

Let’s take it a little farther. You hid in a closet, clutching your smart phone during a shooting in a building. But did you ever stare down the barrel of a full-auto battle rifle; not some varmit round like .223/5.56, but full-power 7.62 NATO.

I’ve done all of those. Yet, somehow, I still respect individual rights. I oppose your victim disarmament schemes.

Partly because I have done all those, and think people should be able to defend themselves.

You prefer a closet.

And unarmed victims for the predators your laws don’t dissuade. It must be the old saw: You don’t have to outrun the lions, just your helpless friends.

I prefer to stop the lions.

While you hide in a closet.

Gun Controllers Explained by Science

Ran across this today.

Infantilism as a norm
From a psychological perspective, adulthood implies self-regulation, emotional maturity (rationality, self-control, lack of impulsivity, etc.), responsibility, ability to self-reflect, and the need to work and have stable relationships. Adults strive for success in their professions and in family life. Some psychologists emphasize the importance of the motives of affiliation and achievement. It is important for a person to define his or her civil and social position, lifestyle, etc.

I agree that infantilism shows signs of becoming a norm, but disagree with the assessment that we should embrace it. The end result of such a policy would be that no one ever grows up.

According to Sabelnikova and Khmeleva, infantile personality, on the contrary, is characterized by immature feelings (‘childish’ reactions, lack of willpower, lack of confidence), external locus of control (other people are blamed), inflated self-concept, low demands on self (accompanied by high demands on society), and egocentrism. ‘An infantile person seeks to escape the need to adequately assess objective social reality’, the paper’s authors added.

Sound like anyone you know?

Hogg Shit

He can’t help it. Even when admitting the NRA might do something right, Little Hitler has to lie about something.

David Hogg Goes from Calling NRA ‘Pathetic F*ckers’ to Tweeting NRA Gun Safety Guidelines
“For NRA members that have bought more guns out of an irrational fear of us the NRA does provide some safety tips for guns please be sure to be a safe and responsible gun owner. Around 900 children commit suicide with parents gun every year.”

Nope. Not even close. The actual number of child suicides by firearm is 566. Including 18yos brings it up to 764.

You have to include 19yos, as well, to hit (and, sadly exceed) 900: 1,017.

But that’s total child firearm suicides. Not just those with “parents gun” (sic). Hemenway, who never saw a fact he couldn’t twist to make guns and gun owners look bad, says only around 80% use a firearm belonging to any family member. If he narrows it down to specific family members, it’s behind the paywall; but let’s say they were all parents’ firearms.

566 X .8 = 453 (rounded up to whole person). About half of Hogg’s “900” lie.

You want an estimate of non-firearm child suicides? Anti-gun Everytown for Totalitarianism claims that only 40% of child suicides involve a gun, so that would give us 849.

And Davie? Please learn to use punctuation, capitalization, and proper grammar. Everyone makes mistakes, but you should find that embarrassing.

Try it: A message to “Never Again MSD”

Law enforcement failed 42 times to do anything about the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School murderer. The school failed to do anything about him. DCF failed, despite an apparent adjudication of mental incompetence. In turn, someone in government neglected to report him to NICS, so he was able to buy a gun from an FFL.

The Coward County Sheriff’s Office ignored an impassioned plea from a family member. (Several, really, including one from the suspect himself.)

The FBI ignored TWO reports of concern about the shooter-to-be. One of those reports was very detailed; including that the suspect was armed and wanted to shoot up his former school. The other report was that the suspect wanted to be a famous school shooter.

Coward County Sheriff’s deputies… cowered outside, and let the shooter kill. (Peterson now claims that he heard shots, but thought they came from outside, therefore he hid… outside. Ignoring screaming kids pouring out of the building.)

So you blame…

The rifle. And every honest gun owner in the country who didn’t commit the crime.

There are an estimated 16,000,000 AR-pattern rifles alone in America. The Parkland shooter used one of those, which government should have prevented him having in the first place.

There are at least 265,000,000 firearm of all types in America. Some estimates reach 750,000,000.

Your shooter used one.

You want “assault weapons” banned. Yet you have no constitutionally specific definition of such. As a result honest gun owners reasonably wonder if you plan to take them all.

Estimates of gun owners range from 55,000,000 to over 120,000,000.

Your shooter was one PROHIBITED PERSON.

But you blame all gun owners — whom, I repeat, didn’t do it — for the criminal acts of one prohibited person whom the government allowed to kill. You negligently throw out the term “NRA” as shorthand for all gun owners and accuse us of murder, which sounds like slander/libel to me.

As many as 120,000,000 honest people armed with as much as 750,000,000 small arms are watching you accuse and threaten us; watching you attempt to sic the forces of government on us for crimes we did not commit, in a mass 18 U.S. Code § 241 conspiracy against constitutionally-protected human/civil rights.*

Forces of government” seemingly too incompetent to stop one crazed killer.

Is it wise to piss off that many armed people with only the Browardly backing of government?

Try it. Try us.


* What? You believed CNN when they told you only “NRA” money keeps politicians from doing YOUR bidding? No, it’s 55,000,000 to 120,000,000 VOTERS who will — and have in past — toss their oathbreaking posteriors out of office.
