Insurrectionism! The CSGV Answer For Everything

I was looking to see what the reaction of the gun prohibitionists was to BATFE’s decision to postpone any immediate decision on M855 and their proposed framework. After checking the Brady Campaign’s website and finding nothing, I came to the conclusion that I’d have to start slumming it. Yes, I went to the Facebook page of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (sic).

I knew I’d find off the wall comments there and I wasn’t disappointed. However, these comments came from CSGV and not one of their followers who project their own violent tendencies upon us.

When asked why we “prize” green tip bullets, the answer was not because they are cheap or because they are accurate. The official answer was, not unexpectedly, “because of insurrectionism.” And in response to another person who asks why citizens need “armor piercing” bullets, the official answer is to kill law enforcement officers and military service members when we sense “tyranny”.

When I read these answers to the Complementary Spouse, she just looked at me like I was insane and then said, “Are they really that stupid?”

I’m not sure if Ladd is that stupid but I’m sure he would have made a good commissar if he had grown up in Stalin’s USSR.  He certainly is good at spouting the party line no matter how ridiculous it sounds.

How Pathetic

Josh Horwitz has just one-upped Paul Helmke on the pathetic scale.

Horwitz is the Executive Director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. In a post today at the Huffington Post entitled NRA’s Latest Poster Boy Sounds Like School Shooter, he insinuates that James D’Cruz is another Columbine killer in waiting. He compares quotes on James’ Facebook page to the stuff said by Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris as well as the Virginia Tech killer Seung-Hui Cho and the Pearl, Mississippi school shooter. He then concludes:

The best case scenario here is that D’Cruz is strikingly immature and incapable of handling the serious responsibilities that come with gun ownership. The worst case scenario is that he’s a ticking time bomb in need of psychiatric care. In either case, he’s a poster boy for why we should prevent handgun sales to those under 21 years of age.

Of course it is utter bullshit and could well be considered an actionable case of defamation.

One could very well rewrite Horwitz’s quote to read:

The best case scenario here is that Horwitiz is strikingly immature and incapable of the rational thought needed for serious policy discussion. The worst case is that he’s a ticking time bomb in need of psychiatric care. In either case, he and Paul Helmke are the poster children for the flailing gun control movement which can be seen in their compulsion to demonize an 18 year-old college freshman.
