Why are anti-gun people so violent?

From New Hampshire:

State Rep. Katherine Rogers, D-Concord, pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced on Friday in Concord District Court in connection with a confrontation last year with well-known gun-rights advocate Susan Olsen.

The misdemeanor charge stems from an exchange between Rogers and Olsen during a recount of ballots for a state Senate seat in November 2016. Rogers was charged in August.
Olsen was allegedly sitting next to Rogers when Olsen asked Rogers to move the ballots closer. Olsen says that was when Rogers grabbed her and hit her on the side of her head.

And we have more details here:

Olsen stated that she said to Rogers, “If you strike me again, I will have you arrested.” She alleged that Rogers, a former county attorney, countered, “in a low, mocking, angry whisper,” something to the effect of “Hit me. I know you want to. Go ahead. Hit me.”

Olsen claimed that Rogers was “smirking” while she was speaking and then, reportedly leaned in further, “sounding almost like she was daring me,” and allegedly stated, “I know what you want to do. You want to shoot me.”

One of the signs of certain personality disorders is that they think they can read the minds of other people (ask me in person about some of my experiences with this). I strongly suspect a large number of anti-gun people have mental issues.

Why are these people so violent? Oh, I remember now. It’s in their nature.

  1. There’s no point in restarting the discussion, but reading the post and comments to the 2010 post you linked to, I’m reminded of the recent “when will it boil over” discussion held here. Given the mental instability of lefties, it has to be “when” rather than “if,” even if only on a local level (“what color is the sky in their world” is decent shorthand for lack of reality reinforcement).

    As for subduing the Left, one necessary measure is eliminating public support (read: “taxes”) for their wet dreams so, at least, they’ll have to fund them privately. My judgment is that at least 2/3, and probably closer to 4/5, of what the fed dot gov does is neither Constitutionally justified nor necessary. Easier identification of Leftist fiscal action would be a plus; currently, a tremendous amount of Leftist activism is deeply buried in the federal budget structure.

    That said, simply reducing fed income won’t be enough; were a Constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget to be enacted, first, who says taxes wouldn’t just be raised to maintain the required balance, and second, how would federal government fiscal responsibility be enforced?

    • “at least 2/3rd”. I would say at least 99%. Take a look at Article 1 Section 8 and see if you can find any government program or agency that’s authorized by that section. I know of one or two, but they are rare indeed.
      For example, none of the Departments of Energy, Labor, Education, Interior, HUD, Environment, and probably a couple of others can be found there. And no “independent agency” [sic] can possible pass constitutional muster. Nor the Federal Reserve.

  2. “State Rep. Katherine Rogers, D-Concord, pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced…”

    No jail, no fine, no repercussions in her state rep position. Doesn’t sound like much of a sentencing to me!

    • At her socio-political level, and as a party member, a cross look is punishment enough. Contrarily, for lesser beings, more minor offenses must be punished as felonies, or the justice system will collapse for lack of respect.

  3. It is safe to assume that every bully has been bullied. It runs through a population like a virulent disease. Unfortunately, we have a political/pseudo-religious system dedicated to keeping that disease alive. Fortunately, the answer lies in America’s founding principles, and in the never-talked-about portions of the Bible;

    James 1:25 (KJV)
    But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

    Isn’t that a perfect message for anyone?

    James 2:12. (KJV)
    So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

    Consequences, there are, for those who fail to take heed then. Perfect advice, followed by a warning. American (and hopefully some day, worldwide) principles are still alive, even though they be under assault every minute of every day, from within and from without.

    If the perfect law of liberty is written into your heart, then who needs politicians? Their only purpose is to control the bullied by bullying them further, and to marginalize, rob, and eventually snuff out those who carry the perfect law of liberty.

    Every authoritarian, whether she be a state rep, a king, dictator, a high level member of any secret society, a professor, a member of the U.N. “human rights” council, or the fucking pope, is a criminal, and murder is the ultimate expression of control. Remember it.
