Brilliant, and, sadly, true take on how the left is reacting to a mass shooter being stopped dead by armed citizens in Texas
U.S.—The nation’s media outlets announced they were grieving today as an armed citizen stopped a mass shooting.
“We grieve that this tragedy we could have exploited for weeks on end was stopped by a good guy with a gun,” said one teary-eyed MSNBC reporter on the scene. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the shooter.”
“We are absolutely heartbroken and in shock over here,” said one New York Times journalist. “What could have given us weeks and weeks of frothing-at-the-mouth stories about gun control will now have to be suppressed since it does not align with our agenda.”
Noted propagandist Shannon Watts was stricken with outrageous outrage over this brazen act of self=defense
I’ve already detailed some of the tweets from Shannon Watts and members of Congress bemoaning the fact that armed citizens stopped the attack within seconds, but since that original post there’ve been plenty of others who’ve let it be known that they believe it’s a bad thing that good guys with guns took down that attacker.
Writing at The Guardian, Joan E. Greve seemed a little disappointed that Second Amendment advocates may be on to something.
Every time the US suffers another mass shooting, gun rights activists make an argument that goes something like this: if a good guy with a gun had been there, this terrible tragedy could have been prevented.
That argument has been dismissed by gun control groups as an unrealistic suggestion that diverts attention away from the need to strengthen laws restricting firearm access, but a shooting that occurred over the weekend has now supercharged the “good guy with a gun” defense.
Oh yes, gun control groups, with a deeply held agenda, have dismissed it, so, it cannot be true right? Stop! And, they have found another narrative, that Cam Edwards looks at
Gun control activists are now resorting to a backup argument, which goes something like this: Okay, fine, a guard with a gun stopped a shooter, but the only reason he could do it is because his years in law enforcement gave him superpowers or something close to it. On Twitter, Jon Stokes from Open Source Defense found a gaggle of gun control supporters claiming that no way could the average gun owner have responded in a similar fashion.
Go read that thread it is comical how far these foolish people will delude themselves
Animal weighs in with a very important reminder that self-defense is a natural right
A would-be mass shooter in Texas attacked a church and killed two parishioners but was stopped by a Good Guy With a Gun, who planted the shooter with a .357 Sig round right through the brain-pan. That’s a good shot. Excerpt:
On Sunday we reported that a man entered a church in White Settlement, Texas, and fired on worshippers, before he was shot dead by a member(s) of the church security team.
Two victims, who have not yet been identified, died as the result of gunshot wounds. The assailant was only able to get off two shots before he was taken out by the alert guard, reportedly an ex-FBI agent. (There are some reports that a second member of the church security team fired on the suspect, but it’s not clear at this time if that’s the case.)
Would-be gun-grabbers will ask “how is it better to have more guns in a mass shooting?” Well, this is why it is better. Is it better to be helpless in the face of an armed aggressor – or, worse, aggressors? No. I’d much rather have at least the chance to defend myself.
But I do take issue with this statement from the church’s minister: West Freeway Church of Christ Senior Minister Britt Farmer: “I’m thankful our government has allowed us the opportunity to protect ourselves”
Like hell. The government hasn’t allowed you anything. Most of the statist fucksticks in the Imperial government would love to strip you of your right to self-defense. You have that right because you were born. It’s a natural right – I’m sure Minister Farmer would call it God-given, I call it a natural right, but no matter what you call it, you have it, not because government granted it but because government is prohibited from interfering with it – not that that doesn’t stop elected assholes from trying to do so.
A massive amen to that.
