Quote of the day–Dave Workman

On this one-year anniversary of the landmark Heller ruling, it is sadly clear that gun prohibitionists are as determined as ever to re-write history and live in denial. Of course, what they really want is to deny gun owners their civil rights.

To paraphrase Barack Obama, these gun prohibitionists have become bitter, clinging to their gun control agenda as if it were a religion.

The Heller ruling one year later; antis still in denial
[Just as many whites clung to their bigoted beliefs about blacks for 100 year after the 13th Amendment was passed it’s going to take a long, long time before the anti-gun bigots are driven into the fringe politics along with the KKK. It should not be a surprise that the bigots of today overwhelmingly are Democrats, just as they were in the heydays of the KKK. Apparently they just can’t help it and have to hate someone.–Joe]

  1. Joe, That is absolutely ridiculous. For the most part, anti-gun folks are not all that different from the majority of pro-gunners. Those accusations of wanting to control and being in denial and wanting to deny people their civil rights may apply to a minority but they certainly don’t apply to the movement at large.

  2. Anyone who wants to ban firearms (any firearms) wants to deny people their civil rights.

    Anyone who wants to prevent law-abiding citizens from lawfully carrying firearms for their self-defense wants to deny people their civil rights.

    Anyone who wants to control which firearms can be sold where wants to deny people their civil rights.

    Anyone who wants to control which law-abiding citizens can buy firearms wants to deny people their civil rights.

    The list just goes on an on. Self-defense is a civil right. Ownership of firearms is a legal (and Constitutionaly-protected) right. Anti-gun folks are against both, so the math is quite obvious.

  3. MikeB, please define “the movement at large”. Are you saying the Brady Campaign and/or the Violence Policy Center and/or the anti-gun politicians in Washington do not represent the “the movement at large”?

  4. Lets try this then, Mike;
    That is absolutely ridiculous. For the most part, the KKK et al are not all that different from the majority of blacks and Jews. Those accusations of wanting to control and being in denial and wanting to deny people their civil rights may apply to a minority but they certainly don’t apply to the white supremacist movement at large.

    That would be an example of the “living in denial” that Workman is describing.

    Anti-gun folks are not all that different from the majority of pro-gunners, except for the little fact that they want to get rid of them, and don’t seem to mind when they are jailed or even killed (how many anti-gun folks are protesting the jail sentances of peaceable gun owners convicted of technical violations, or how many anti-gun folks protested the killings at Ruby Ridge and Waco? I didn’t hear a peep out of them. Instead we were treaded to television “documentaries” implying, more or less, that they deserved it).

  5. The “movement at large” that I discern seems to me to be a bowel movement of insulting and offensive consistency on both a philosophical and olfactory level and perpetrated by mikeb.
