Quote of the day—Deborah Prothrow-Stith

My view of guns is simple. I hate guns and I cannot imagine why anyone would want to own one. If I had my way, guns for sport would be registered, and all other guns would be banned.

  1. Good thing that the primitive and un-enlightened Constitution stands in the way of such elitists like the hyphenated author.

  2. It speaks to my geekery that I initially misread the second half of her last name, and immediately thought, “Well, that makes sense…”

  3. In other words, she doesn’t understand them, and therefore they must be destroyed because they are something powerful she cannot control.
    Yup, statist through and through.

  4. Let’s try editing the quote for the sake of clarity;

    “I hate.
    I cannot imagine.”

    • So, I guess that means her attempt to ban them would be, by her own admission, a hate crime, right? Who can file the charges against her?

    • Perhaps, if she actually said it and hasn’t come around since then. But even then she could have been lying and is evil instead of being an idiot.

        • The idiot who designed the National Resident Match System for medical students was apparently a Nobel Prize winner in economics.

          Or think about all the scientists who make up data to support their claims (vaccines reportedly leading to autism, claims of human cloning or use of stem cells, etc)

          You can be in a high ranking position, and still be an idiot. You’re just more adept at pulling the wool over people’s eyes than the average idiot.

        • Statists are either idiots — given its past results — or evil — again, given its past results.
