NRA traps & the Best Piece on Guns & Schools

I’d like to rec­om­mend two pieces on the NRA gun plan:

First my piece for the Exam­iner The NRA Traps for the Left & the Right:

The NRA is going to go for­ward advanc­ing its plan no mat­ter what any­one in the gov­ern­ment says. There is only one ques­tion remain­ing, will the Repub­li­cans act quickly to back the NRA pro­gram & keep it pri­vate or will the Democ­rats co-​opt it into a giant pub­lic tax and spend­ing machine?

Either way if the kids end up safe I don’t think the coun­try will care.

The polit­i­cal risks/​rewards are real, the ques­tion is who will take them?

The sec­ond is from Larry Corella’s site. It’s the best and most informed piece of the sub­ject I’ve seen:

No. Hear me out. The sin­gle best way to respond to a mass shooter is with an imme­di­ate, vio­lent response. The vast major­ity of the time, as soon as a mass shooter meets seri­ous resis­tance, it bursts their fan­tasy world bub­ble. Then they kill them­selves or sur­ren­der. This has hap­pened over and over again.

Pag­ing Cyn­thia Yockey

The aver­age num­ber of peo­ple shot in a mass shoot­ing event when the shooter is stopped by law enforce­ment: 14. The aver­age num­ber of peo­ple shot in a mass shoot­ing event when the shooter is stopped by civil­ians: 2.5. The rea­son is sim­ple. The armed civil­ians are there when it started.

As for Gun Free Zones:

Gun Free Zones are hunt­ing pre­serves for inno­cent peo­ple. Period.

Think about it. You are a vio­lent, homi­ci­dal mad­man, look­ing to make a state­ment and hop­ing to go from dis­af­fected loser to most famous per­son in the world. The best way to accom­plish your goals is to kill a whole bunch of peo­ple. So where’s the best place to go shoot all these peo­ple? Obvi­ously, it is some­place where nobody can shoot back.

This is so obvi­ous it’s embar­rass­ing that any­one has to say it aloud.

But my favorite is where he takes apart the media myths that have been per­pet­u­ated by the par­ti­san & unin­formed which usu­ally are one and the same:

Gun and mag­a­zine sales sky­rocket every time a demo­c­rat politi­cian starts to vul­ture in on a tragedy. I don’t know if many of you real­ize this, but Barack Obama is per­son­ally respon­si­ble for more gun sales, and espe­cially first time gun pur­chases, than any­one in his­tory. When I owned my gun store, we had a pic­ture of him on the wall and a cap­tion beneath it which said SALES­MAN OF THE YEAR.

It’s Very VERY long, but it’s worth it.

I’d like to recommend two pieces on the NRA gun plan:

First my piece for the Examiner The NRA Traps for the Left & the Right:

The NRA is going to go forward advancing its plan no matter what anyone in the government says. There is only one question remaining, will the Republicans act quickly to back the NRA program & keep it private or will the Democrats co-opt it into a giant public tax and spending machine?

Either way if the kids end up safe I don’t think the country will care.

The political risks/rewards are real, the question is who will take them?

The second is from Larry Corella’s site. It’s the best and most informed piece of the subject I’ve seen:

No. Hear me out. The single best way to respond to a mass shooter is with an immediate, violent response. The vast majority of the time, as soon as a mass shooter meets serious resistance, it bursts their fantasy world bubble. Then they kill themselves or surrender. This has happened over and over again.

Paging Cynthia Yockey

The average number of people shot in a mass shooting event when the shooter is stopped by law enforcement: 14. The average number of people shot in a mass shooting event when the shooter is stopped by civilians: 2.5. The reason is simple. The armed civilians are there when it started.

As for Gun Free Zones:

Gun Free Zones are hunting preserves for innocent people. Period.

Think about it. You are a violent, homicidal madman, looking to make a statement and hoping to go from disaffected loser to most famous person in the world. The best way to accomplish your goals is to kill a whole bunch of people. So where’s the best place to go shoot all these people? Obviously, it is someplace where nobody can shoot back.

This is so obvious it’s embarrassing that anyone has to say it aloud.

But my favorite is where he takes apart the media myths that have been perpetuated by the partisan & uninformed which usually are one and the same:

Gun and magazine sales skyrocket every time a democrat politician starts to vulture in on a tragedy. I don’t know if many of you realize this, but Barack Obama is personally responsible for more gun sales, and especially first time gun purchases, than anyone in history. When I owned my gun store, we had a picture of him on the wall and a caption beneath it which said SALESMAN OF THE YEAR.

It’s Very VERY long, but it’s worth it.
