Hone in on our intention. This tragedy of rampant gun violence, murder, mass killings – all these terrible, painful things that we are seeking to stop, to put an end to this night . . . . We curse you, merchants of mayhem, profiteers of pain, dealers of death, you who fatten on the blood of innocents and feast like demons on their corpses! May your thoughts and prayers turn to poison in your mouths. May every mother’s cry be a bullet to your heart. May the weeping of children rend your flesh like shrapnel
If there is anything I can do at all that’s even remotely effective, that might be magic,
Documentary film depicts binding ritual on Trump, NRA
[H/T NRA-ILA who offer this perspective:
It kind of makes sense.
We all know that gun control is based mainly on magical thinking.
Salisbury believes himself to be a witch and is using his supposed powers against the the NRA.
At first I wondered, if he believes in his magical powers, why didn’t he use them to stop evil people from murdering others in the future. But then I realized that, of course, a witch aligns against the good people of the NRA. He is on the side of evil.—Joe]
Pro Tip: If you want people to give up their guns, don’t tell them you want them dead.

Via email from Brian Keith:
Some of the words are a little difficult to read so here is the conversation in normal text:
Person A: And everything else
Person B: Yes. This.
Person C: Ya’lls likes are bringing me so many smiles. Thank you. Of course the first comment here (which I have deleted) was toxic sludge from a rich, straight white cis male.
Person D: If only we could delete them irl so easily.
Brian also adds:
I found this on the Facebook page of a person in Seattle.
Imagine publicly stating you were sick of a group of people (such as straight white men), based on an attribute that you assigned to the whole group (greedy!).
You’d never get elected and your friends would stop talking to you.
Unless the target of your rage is straight white cis men.
Then it’s okay when a friend talks about killing 1/3 of the country.
How is this different than how Germans talked about Jews—just before the Weapons Control Act of 1938? This is why we won’t be giving up our guns.

I advocate that every gun owner be hanged.
Good to know.
I advocate that Bart Hubbuch be prosecuted.
I had been thinking about it for a while but didn’t want to go through the work of finding all the old posts but someone in the comments (Drew Rinella) suggested I create a new category “They want you dead”. So, when I woke up at 3:00 AM this morning and couldn’t go back to sleep I got on my computer and created the new category, did a bunch of searching for the posts that matched, and edited them to include them in the category.
I then did some catch up on reading other blogs and found this:
So very apropos.
If only you 2A yahoos were being killed, there would be no need for Miss Gonzalez’s movement. Unfortunately, it’s innocents who are paying w/their lives.

[This is what they think of you: If you are a Second Amendment supporter you are not innocent. Your death would make the world a better place.
In other words, they want you dead.
Don’t ever forget the most important reason to own guns is to protect ourselves from progressives.—Joe]
I have pinned this post to the top of my blog. It is to remind people of what many of our opponents want. Alison Aires wants a tyrannical government. They want summary execution for private possession of firearms.
This is why we have a Bill of Rights. This is why I created Boomershoot.
From Philadelphia, via Paul Koning, who says, “Yes, they do want you dead”. Controversial bill would force business owners to take down bulletproof glass:
A bill moving through city council reads: “No establishment shall erect or maintain a physical barrier.”
Philadelphia is extremely anti-gun. Hence, one could easily defend the hypothesis that the city council considers the criminal class their primary constituents. Don’t laugh! In the Soviet Union criminals were considered allies in building communism. And it wouldn’t be the first time in the U.S. politicians deliberately sided with criminals.
Sebastian has some thoughts on the topic as well.
Spent my weekend preparing to move due to repeated threats from gun control advocates.
One guy hunted down my private cell phone number, called when police were here, threatened to shoot me in my front yard. Another guy created a string of social media accounts, posted photos of my house, threatened to rape me to death. Another gun control advocate, after threatening to hunt me down and assault me, dragged my kids into it.

The scumbags of the political left did the same sort of thing to Michelle Malkin a few years ago. (I suspect it continues to this day). I set up a honey pot for catching those threatening Malkin. The link below is another honeypot. If you link to it from your website/blog using the appropriate text it will get more Google Page Rank and appear closer to the top of search engine results.

CBS did the right thing:
CBS fired a company executive Monday after she criticized some victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting as “Republican gun toters” who did not deserve sympathy.
If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing. I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.
Don’t forget, this is what some people think of gun owners. They do not think of us as fully human and deserving of life and/or liberty. Violence in support of their beliefs is easily justified. It’s part of their nature.
The only way Republicans are going to come to their senses is if people start dropping their leaders with weapons which should never be available to the general public. SmartenTFU

Watching the congressman crying on live tv abt the trauma they experienced. Y is this so funny tho?
The very people that push pro NRA legislation in efforts to pad their pockets with complete disregard for human life. Yeah, having a hard time feeling bad for them.

To the filthy and coward non-believers and to the holders of the Christ emblem, we bring the good news, which will keep them awake, that a new generation in the Islamic State … that loves death more than life … this generation will only grow steadfast on the path to Jihad, stay determined to seek revenge and be violent toward them.

ISIS spokesman killed in Aleppo, group says
[Read that carefully and remember this:
- They think of you as a filthy and cowardly non-believer.
- As long as you are a non-believer ISIS will be determined to be violent against you.
- The new generation in the Islamic State loves death more than life.
It would appear to me they desire we make one of only two active choices. In either case we give them what they want. Although there is potential for other, long term, active choices if I were directly faced with making the decision on short notice I know what my choice would be.—Joe]

There is a reason progressives are so violent.
Via a tweet from Proud Hunter@Duck_Hunter7 (which also resulted in a Markley’s Law Monday post scheduled for January 16, 2017) we have this tweet from Pupper, Esq. @alltehmunnies:
I hope you’re killed in an armed stand off with law enforcement.
And this tweet from not nev @existentialslut in the same thread:

This is so you know the type of people who oppose private gun ownership.
Via a tweet from Linoge I found that at 12:40 PM PST, on November 30, 2015 Chris Tacy tweeted:
@monteiro perhaps they should have to shoot their kids to keep their guns
This is what they think of you and the specific enumerated right to keep and bear arms.
Canada should really ease the laws about guns so that more people can have them and eventually kill each other with them.

Comment to Supreme Court strikes down mandatory minimum sentences for gun possession
[Why are anti-gun people so violent?
Oh yeah! Now I remember. It’s because it’s in their nature.—Joe]
I have no idea what the solution is to gun violence, but America continues to lead the industrial West when it comes to shooting it out. I think one step in the right direction would be an extension of the castle doctrine to allow shooting anyone open carrying an assault rifle.
If you see a couple of people carrying assault rifles openly, you could argue convincingly that they needed killing.

[Just so you know what some people think of you if you carry one of the most popular rifles in the U.S. That is, you need to be killed.—Joe]
