Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

Rant on Gun Nuts

(From a blog reply.)

What the gun nuts have done is make us more afraid and paranoid. They use incidents of criminals with guns to justify making us scared and more armed when those incidents rarely happen. And then an accident happens like the church shooting because there was a gun in the wrong place. These accidental shootings are a thousand times worse than shootings from criminals because all the people involved are innocent. So you can cite as many incidents where someone “saves the day” because they had a gun, the chance of someone accidentally being hurt really overwhelms any good that could come from increase in the number of guns. Also as I’ve stated before, the criminals with the guns have the same gun nut mentality as those vigilantes who arm themselves to the teeth, so it’s pretty much a wash; they stop the problems they created. But the main thing about guns is that they create an atmosphere of fear, that’s the one thing we should take from Bowling for Columbine. Fear of criminals with guns, fear of not having a gun, fear of someone with a gun accidentally firing their gun, fear of a kid finding a gun, etc. Fear at this level can be classified as terrorism. Not only are these gun nuts cultists, but they are to an extant terrorists. Society can do without gun nuttery.


  1. you really need to start citing some statistics to support your claims, albert. you do more to incite fear into others with your irresponsible made up facts than responsible gun owners ever could...
    how about fear of someone accidentally running someone over with their car?...fear of someone accidentally burning their house down with their family inside?...fear of a doctor making a misdiagnosis or mistreating a patient and causing life threatening or life ending harm?...where do you draw the line on your want for legislation before you actually hold people responsible?...
    you left a real fear out...fear of those abusing their freedom of speech by spreading lies to further their own agendas...

  2. The people abusing their speech by spreading lies to further their own agendas are the gun nuts and yes that is a legit fear.
