Quote of the day–Jim Purdy

Why do we need so many dang guns? Wouldn’t the world be a better place with fewer weapons? I haven’t had a gun since the one I had in the U.S. Army in the 1960s.

Comment to Obama win spurs gun purchases
[Try selling the idea that fewer guns would make the world a better place to these people:

Oh yeah. That’s right. You can’t convinced them of that because they are dead. They are dead because their own government murdered them. With only a few thousand thugs actually involved in the murdering of 10 million people the victims would only had needed a kill ratio of 1:100 to have completely stopped the butchery. But guess what–their government took their guns away from them with Regulations Against Jews’ Possession of Weapons. They had no effective weapons to defend themselves and you, Mr. Purdy and President-Elect Obama, want to recreate the same conditions here.

No thanks. Keep the change.–Joe]

  1. They MAY kill me, they MAY take MY guns, but it WILL be after they take them from my COLD, dead hands…

    Never go quietly, never sit back and take it, if the bastards are going to kill you anyway, take as many as possible out when you go, leave a MARK on the face of your attacker…

    I’m too old and too sick to run, I will make a stand and I may die trying, but I will defend this nation, our constitution, as written, and our way of life, I made my mind up 36 years ago, I won’t go quietly, you guys will hear ME all the way to Northern Idaho!!

  2. TexasFred,

    You ain’t alone buddy. I will not walk into the death chamber without taking as many jackbooted thugs down as possible. I was taught “Aim for the head”!

  3. So the “One Percent Rule” really works in both directions – a few thousand thugs murdered 10-million… (actually the math says 100k is 1% of 10-mil, but I’m an anthro guy not a math guy.)

  4. Not all the victims would have been able to fight. Many were small children or elderly, or infirm in some other manner. Many, especially in the beginning, were unaware what fate lay ahead and could not reasonably be expected to fight. Some would not kill because of religious beliefs.

    Furthermore the 1:100 ratio was not what I consider the threshold. It only was to point out that the victims don’t need a very large kill ratio to have a large effect.
