Mental problems

The first and only thing that comes to mind is mental problems when I read something like The Racist Origins Of the Second Amendment. Pure projection. The truth is gun control has racist origins. Here is just a small sample of the evidence:

  1. I attribute it to a more malevolent problem then projection.

    The modern sidearm is the single most self-empowering extension of the independent thinker. More than a tool for hunting and self-defense, it is an extension of pure will. That legally armed men and women are social creatures with much societal contribution boggles the minds of those currently engaged in their insidious Orwellian power-grab. Thus, you have two distinct factions at war with the Renaissance Man; those at war with independent thinkers because they stand in the way of their rise to power, and those who have been deceived into following these personality cults.

  2. I’d say they’re a bunch of cooks. When I saw them say the second amendment was to force tyranny I had to leave. I cant see how someone could actually believe that B.S.

    As for those JPFO pamphlets they work great. Handed those suckers out in middle school and high school. Helped make people squirm even more when I did a presentation on governmental abuses against their people. Every example used had guncontrol preceding it. Needless to say my leftist teacher hated me.

  3. It’s their sad response to the “Racist Roots” articles. They are desperate to find anything that can point to firearm rights being racist so they can broad brush it.

  4. Joe, do you think this type of delusion (I think the word used to describe the people you are referring to) is self-feeding and cross-pollinating? That is like a mental illness, it’s self reinforcing because the alternative is not the easy path, either mentally or spiritually. It’s so easy to think along those lines, so convenient, that it’s like a mind trap.

    If so I believe we may be talking about the same effect. People ascribe to a cult of personality and loose part of their rational thinking. It’s no wonder how crap like that can get written and published.

    To me that is a malevolent effect. I wish I could explain myself better but I am only on page 25 of the new edition of “Identity and Control”. Last night trying to read it put me asleep. If these academics would put pictures of guns and boobs sprinkled throughout their text, I would have a much better time of it.

  5. “Guns and boobs” huh? Does that mean we need more gun and boob images in our pro freedom messages?

    On short notice, I found this one.

    Carry on.

  6. “Does that mean we need more gun and boob images in our pro freedom messages?”

    Yes.

  7. I think there are sincere true believers. Just like people that believe in Santa Claus and the tooth fairy they are naive. It’s a pleasant thought to believe that merely by wishing there were no guns the world would be a safer place. For these people evidence that guns do more good than harm is extremely uncomfortable thought. It is psychologically easier to twist the facts to match their beliefs than to adapt their beliefs to reality. Hence we have these mental cases.

    This is not to say we don’t have people that are kooks and/or malevolent. Many of these merely use the emotionalism and the twisted facts as their tool to an end.

    And just as there are those working for the tobacco companies who insist smoking does no harm there are those who get their money from the Joyce Foundation and insist gun control is the path to the promised land instead to tyranny.

  8. On the District of Columbia: I thought, for a moment, years ago, that we’d be better off if the Russians or somebody would nuke the place while Congress was in session. Then I thought of the Library of Congress, and the Smithsonian. I really would give my life behind a haphazard pile of sandbags at the front door of the Library of Congress, with whatever weapon I had, to save it from the yahoos and doodahs.

    I thought it particularly offensive, that during the Cold War, Congress provided themselves a cozy bunker in West Virginia to hide from the nuclear consequences of their follies, while the nation’s library and the nation’s attic were left totally unprotected.

    I usedta say, if we’re expecting a nuclear war, that the Congress-critters should be chained to their desks, in the Capitol

  9. “No you are!” It seems that this is the pattern that’s developing. Good guys do some research, antis turn it on it’s head. They’re not even trying to hide it anymore.

  10. Tony, yes. I think it is self reinforcing. And it takes supporters to maintain the delusions. This is part of the reason it is so important to “come out of the closet” as a gun owner. If people think everyone agrees with their delusions then it is much easier to cling to them. See also When Prophecy Fails.

    Justthisguy, yeah. I’ve had similar thoughts. One variation of my line of thinking is that it is so ironic that these parasites make shelters and food depots for some terrible disaster and the people selected for protecting are not those that would be best able to rebuild after the disaster. They don’t select construction people, farmers, mechanics, engineers, doctors, plumbers, and electricians. They select “the leaders” (actually the servants) who mismanged things to the point there was a disaster. And these “leaders” are frequently in public service because they couldn’t make it in the private sector. If, when they come back up, either they won’t be welcome or they will starve to death in the cold during the first winter when it will be do real work or die.
