On Gun Control from the man who committed suicide and blogged his life & death..


Thoughts? (Yes, I'm completely sucked into reading this man's thought process.)

quote:

I never bought into the whole “second amendment” argument as it relates to the 21st century. Originally, it was put into place for the simple reason that our forefathers were fighting or had just fought off a government that threatened them with weapons. If those in the revolution had no weapons, there would be no United States of America, but rather New England of the New World. So, I understood why they thought it was so important.

And, I also comprehended the need to make sure that our government could never take over our citizenry – although they already have accomplished that via fiscal irresponsibility. But, with respect to force, the fact is that there are so many different levels of law enforcement from the military on down that it’s IMPOSSIBLE for government to take over this country by force. The reason why, besides the fact that they are bozos, is because every single Highway Patrolman or National Guardsman or Secret Serviceman or Air Force Pilot or Army Grunt is somebody’s brother or sister or mother or father or son or daughter. They aren’t all going to suddenly decide to start killing off or jailing millions of Americans. And, the reason why is because… that’s who they are - Americans. Besides, the odds are they feel more strongly about the second amendment than you do!

If a person simply wants to look at the “government” as some mysterious nebulous entity, then that’s fine, but also ignorant. There is simply no way on earth that all of the law enforcement organizations including the military are going to band together to go throughout the country and confiscate weapons or anything else. That’s just paranoid nonsense.

Because I've considered it nonsense, I did not subscribe to the notion that anyone needs to personally own combat weapons. I couldn’t even comprehend why it was ok for a civilian to own anything beyond 1-2 hand guns and 1-2 hunting rifles or shotguns. Semi-automatic rifles with large magazines - which is what the killer used at Sandy Hook, are for what possible good? Well, I guess if we didn’t know before, we sure know now what they are good for. Limiting these types of weapons hardly takes away the “rights” granted by the constitution or protection against tyranny. Rather it takes away the extremes – something the founders of the constitution could never have even remotely imagined.

Hopefully as a study in stupidity.

I have no fricks to give on the above mindset.

We have racist rodeo clowns running amok.

Someone has a horse as well.

I don't know why it's so fascinating to me. Some of it is his detached narration, his absolute faith that the US will collapse completely due to debt, how much he internalized Sandy Hook & natural disasters... He's like the far extremes of this board in one person.

For some reason, providing the GPS coordinates for each significant person or item in his life is strangely unsettling.

I re-read my initial statement, and I'm glad you didn't think I was calling you stupid.

What government agency does he work for?

Ha! He's all over the place in his dialogue but, so far, he seems to think our government has committed a great financial fraud against us... He probably works for the IRS.

To this guy's entire "quit" mentality, I counter with Dylan Thomas:

quote:

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Never mind. He's NSA

quote:

The latest of these are the revelations about the government listening in on phone calls as part of the process of discovering terrorist activity and heading it off before it happens. I’m sure there are millions of people out there that actually wonder who is listening in on the other end of the line or reading their emails or tracking their internet usage. If you are one of them, here is a little statistic for you.

There are, at most, a few thousand people that might be involved in monitoring this information and attempting to make heads or tails out of it with respect to threats against the United States. Considering there are 300 million Americans that are sending emails, text messages, phone conversations, faxes and God knows what all... all day long, it would take… …listen up… 10 MILLION people monitoring all this data to be able to analyze and evaluate it. That’s over 3,000 times as many people as are involved in the process. It’s IMPOSSIBLE. The odds that anything you or I have ever said or written will be analyzed by these people are miniscule.

I’ve often wondered whether these people check under the bed before they hit the hay? Do they refuse to own a cell phone just in case somebody is sending silent waves through it to give them brain cancer? “You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.” Sad, very sad.

Ah... But Dylan Thomas wrote this - his best work - from the overwhelming love & need for his father to not die.

This guy seriously thought that there were great many advantages to his own death & not many disadvantages. He certainly believed he would have no one to beg so eloquently for his strength to go on.

Yes, very cold and calculating, more machine than human: it's like he was already half dead to begin with.

But what do I know? I'm more prone to foolish romanticism.

Law enforcement seemed to have no issues with massive constitutional violations during the Boston incident. How about the numerous violations during Hurricane Katrina?

I'd rather hold onto my guns just in case, sir.

He must only watch CNN. Someone forgot to tell him the AR-15 was in the trunk of the killers car.

The right to bear an arm for personal protection has nothing to do with any form of government. Period. Either government as a threat to freedom, or as a protector against unlawful and harmful entities.

Zimmerman - and a lot of good folk - are only alive because they had personal arms. The mere fact that a lot of the bad guys spend time in the gym building up muscle mass which will be employed against relatively helpless prey - unarmed good folk - should be the end of this red-herring conversation.

No doubt there should be gun control. If a bad guy is caught with a gun, a second time...down they go. Hard labor (like the rest of us) to support their own needs. If a bad guy KILLS with a gun...they die.

There are all manner of interesting "thought processes" out there, Grrl. All the more reason to keep your heat close by. Especially now that our government has decided to spread the wealth around...and spread the urban heathen culture around to good neighborhoods (HUD strategy).

Sandy Hook...psycho...drive car into parade bystanders at 90mph. Never stop that stuff. That's life. Profile the problematic folk (we all know who they are), and try to help. Nothing to do with guns.

Adam...was "completely sucked into...thought process" of biting the apple so he could know. Not necessarily a bad thing. But the fact that your blogger offed himself says a lot about where his own "thought process" took him.

Careful is the ticket.

And..."bliss"...is....a tolerable and preferred condition, PS? Nahhhhttt!

There is a price to pay for gaining Knowledge...but a worse price to pay without it. Of course, it all depends on WHERE the Knowledge takes on to. Heaven or Hell, in short form.

Let's apply his "logic" to the rest of the Bill of Rights.

Freedom of religion was really just to avoid a repeat of the Church of England and the persecution of Catholics and (depending on who was in power) Puritans or Episcopalians. It wasn't meant to allow anyone to oppose abortion and homosexuality. That should be illegal.

Freedom of speech protections were intended to allow reasonable political debate, not the extremes like the Tea Party. The Tea Party shouldn't be allowed to question Obamacare. That kind of rhetoric might lead people to refuse to buy health insurance and then everyone pays for their medical care.

Due process protections were intended to keep the government from prosecuting dissidents on trumped up charges. It's an outdated concept. Anyone who thinks that's possible today is paranoid and deluded. Think of the children. The government needs the proper tools to keep us ssafe from criminals and terrorists, instead of putting them back on the street simply because we can't prove they're guilty.

Hey idiot, if you can hear me above the roar of the flames, look around for
a dude with a toothbrush mustache who got just these types of officials to do exactly that back in the 1930s.
