Last night, after boycotting the news all day because of the steady stream of misinformation that was being called “news” in relation to the Aurora murders yesterday, I watched local DC news, specifically WUSA9, when my common sense was assaulted by the news reader who fired off a rant about how we’re so willing to defend our second amendment rights, that we caused the blood bath. The idiot went on to tell us how the murderer in question had amassed an AR15, a shotgun, two .40 caliber Glocks and 6,000 rounds of ammunition, and how could we allow that to happen.
Yeah, it’s good thing the news reader can’t see inside my house or he’d crap his pants, because I have way more guns and ammo. Three rifles that he’d call assault weapons, seven handguns and about 10,000 rounds of ammunition. And about 400 rounds are already loaded in my high-capacity magazines. I own them all legally, I always carry one of them loaded – mostly because I can. My wife thought I was just being paranoid, but recent events have either made her just as paranoid, or brought her around to my way of thinking.
So, news reader guy said we needed more laws to prevent people like the Aurora guy from owning guns. How, exactly. He was never diagnosed as being unbalanced, the media uncovered his single brush with the law – a traffic ticket. The only way he could have been prevented from his murderous attack was to stop all of us from buying guns. And that’s what news reader guy was trying to champion with his pointless rant. He wanted my guns.
There are millions of gun owners who have never shot anyone, yet we’re target of the hand-wringing gun grabbers. James Holmes was a coward. When confronted by the police, despite his body armor, he meekly surrendered. If one person in that theater had returned fire, Holmes would have beat his chicken shit feet on the pavement.
If all of the liberals can agree that the Supreme Court’s cure for the stolen valor outbreak is “more speech”, they have to agree that the solution to the gun violence problem is more guns.
