Quote of the day—Joss Whedon

The first thing I ever thought of when I thought of “Buffy: The Movie” was the little…blonde girl who goes into a dark alley and gets killed, in every horror movie. The idea of “Buffy” was to subvert that idea, that image, and create someone who was a hero where she had always been a victim.

Welcome to the Hellmouth DVD Commentary from Wikiquote.
[The idea of the right to bear arms is the same.

About 70% of the people in the firearms classes I have taught have been women. All of them were taking the class so they could get a concealed weapons license. I don’t consider them heroes. They are ordinary individuals exercising their natural rights.

We create people who can and will defend themselves against evil. We create a society of individuals who can, will, and must respect the sanctity of life and the dignity of others.

The Brady Campaign has a vested interest in the “little blonde girl” getting killed in the dark alley because that is how they perpetuate their organization. The more victims the more they can dance in the blood and the more donations they get. They create victims and call them heroes and experts. This has to stop. It has to stop with my generation and I intend to help make it so.—Joe]

  1. I have an observation that some of those who are outspoken against guns and self-defense are the unimpressive, scrawny, sensitive, peace-loving, and low-on-testosterone type of guys.

    They, in truth, hide behind the protections that the military and police provide. They are not willing to provide for their own defense and have chosen to let someone else do it for them. It really smacks of cowardice. For me, if I was not ready to fight to the death, for myself or my lovely family, I would not consider myself much of a man.

    So, there must be some guilt in there also for their failure to “man-up” which is why they might want us to all to be as helpless and dependent on big daddy government as they are. They want us all reduced to wimps and victims, so that their lack of manliness is less apparent.

    Well, that’s my theory…

  2. Yes, I appreciate the links above where you have discussed the defective mindset of our opposition previously.
    Please forgive my ignorance of your previous posts since I’m a relative newbie regarding the gun-rights blogs.

    Thanks for your good work.

  3. No, you were just fine in tone.
    I think admitting my ignorance is the first step towards learning. No one is an expert in all things.
    In addition, I wanted you to know that I acknowledged your earlier thoughts and development of the topic.
    So, thanks for re-posting those links. They really show the sad state of these victims-in-waiting.
