Nor from other people being paid to take you out.

I own guns. My life, my families life, and my property are protected by my guns and I. I sleep like a baby, every night, knowing my Semi-Automatic 9mm pistol is by my bed, within arm reach. If an intruder ever came into my house, it would be his last moment alive on this earth. Period.

The only thing that keeps us civil, is our laws. Those who wish not to abide by them, risk losing there life. Either by my gun and I, or by a jury of there peers.

Anything less or different from that, means Zero to me or mine.

“Live Free or die.”-Gen.Stark. American Rev. War Hero.

That says it all about this great continent my European Ancestors took by force, using guns, from the natives.

Great post, Spection.

John Stewart did a great piece (incidently parodying S Palin) about people who accuse others of various infractions while simultaneously perpretrating the exact same things themselves. You should watch it.

Rarely has a claim and concept proved to be more notoriously, mass-murderingly wrong!

Instead, ridiculously easy and effectively unlimited access to semi-automatic handguns and anti-personnel rifles and high-capacity clips simply emboldens and quite overtly encourages one particular sub-group of gun owners — conservative-authoritarian gun owners — to spew Eliminationist hate speech and anti-liberal genocidal rants and death threats without any apprehension or fear whatsoever that anyone can stand up to these vicious bullies without being murdered. The truth is, an armed society is a recklessly belligerent and murderous society.

Now, we all know that these same particular hate-fueled gun owners who rule the NRA — the oligarchical power ruling everyone in this country when it comes to guns — will never permit this to be a sane and rational country. A sane and rational America is utterly incompatible with the NRA’s goals. Sanity and reason is their enemy, and they will never yield. To the NRA, virtually unhindered access to cop-killer ammunition and plastic or ceramic handguns that can evade detection is a sacred right delivered directly from God.

To this category of gun owner and the NRA, the Second Amendment isn’t merely a Constitutional amendment, it’s Inerrant Holy Writ that was delivered unto sacred parchment when the Abrahamic Deity took physical control of the Founders’ arms and hands and, as if telerobotically, brought The Sacred Right of Remote-Control Murder to mankind.

Fact 1: In the U.S., there are 90 guns for every 100 people, vastly more than anywhere else in the world. Fact 2: In the U.S., there are vastly more gun murders annually than anywhere else in the world. But to conservative-authoritarian gun owners and the NRA, there’s absolutely no connection between these facts (or, more accurately, they often know better but lie anyway). What more evidence do we need to know that sanity and reason are utterly incompatible with the NRA’s goals and politics?

Finally, the extreme defensiveness from the Right in this last week since Tuscon is compelling proof of their justifiably guilty consciences. In his first comments after the shooting in Tuscon, Sheriff Dupnik never named individuals or groups or political parties. Yet the Right again became utterly unhinged with defensiveness and denial at Dupnik’s plainly honest and non-specific first comments, demonstrating and emphatically highlighting their plainly guilty consciences.

Was Loughner directly motivated by Palin, Beck, Limbaugh and their hate-fueled ilk? The clear answer is no. I have seen no one claim or argue otherwise, although the Right falsely pretends he claimed there was a direct link. But look at what the hateful Right is arguing in response: “Since we’re not responsible for Tuscon, we’re completely and utterly faultless and innocent of everything, ever. The biggest victim of the Tuscon shootings was poor eternally innocent and perfectly sane Sarah Palin. Everything bad that happens in America is deliberately caused only by liberals, so we are morally right to pursue their final genocidal elimination with our God-beloved remote-control murder devices.”

Read Urbanjack3l’s and other “guns = freedom” responses for clear evidence of this. That author writes: “Are we the same people who subdued and settled a continent???”. Yes, you are: You’re the same kind of people who from the very first moment of the Eurpoean discovery of this land mass, insanely enslaved and viciously murdered everyone else to get your way regardless of the morality of your decisions and regardless of the consequences.

Conseratives are always on about “personal responsibility” — how a just and moral person takes personal responsibility for their words and deeds. Yet you never see a public conservative actually DO that! And that speaks volumes. Volumes and volumes of hate and hypocrisy and intellectual dishonesty.
