You never want a serious crisis to go to waste

You never want a serious crisis to go to waste - Rahm Emanuel
The new mantra of the statist bully-by-proxy element.
(E)very time some horrible Tucson-like event happens, reasonable people get hopeful about repealing the 'open carry' loophole. And we're inevitably disappoint ed. Let's hope - there's that word again! - that this time it actually happens.
- From the posts on this blog article - Closing the "Open Carry” Loophole

Gun control ninny, hoplophobe, and general pantywaist Hoyt Hilsman "Journalist, screenwriter, critic, recent candidate for Congress” wrote a screed of blithering hoplophobia and can be reviewed in full at the above link. (A few choice selections follow.)

What would you do if you walked into a downtown McDonald's and were confronted with a group of men carrying guns? If you are like most of us, you would probably flee for your life and then immediately call the cops. However, in California and many other states, there is not much the police could do except keep a close eye on the armed men.

First, I would never walk into a McDonald’s for that “food” it is horrid.

Second, if I did I would wonder why nobody told me an Open Carry event was going on...

Some gun rights advocates have argued that the Tucson shooter might have been stopped if one of the bystanders were carrying a gun. In fact, it was reported that there was an onlooker who had a licensed gun. Interviewed after the shootings, the onlooker admitted that, in the confusion of the moment, he had very nearly shot the wrong man - one of the heroes who had wrestled the shooter to the ground. So much for the wisdom of more guns on the scene.

Not another ignorant fuckwit, ugh - goodness sakes, not a singe person has taken on the media idiots or firearm confiscation fuckwits on this point.

Hilsman you parasitic incompetent established media fuckwit HE DID NOT SHOOT MISTAKENLY or even draw the weapon, that alone disproves your stupid point!


The main detail of this event never seems to come up with all of the statist firearm confiscation bunch - Joe Zamudio did not draw his weapon - he never pulled, leveled, or aimed his weapon at anyone at this horrid event. The Arizona Daily Star interview with Zamudio, has two details to add to the story: (1) upon seeing the man with the gun, Zamudio recounts "I told him to 'Drop it, drop it!” Zamudio then grabbed his arm and shoved him into a wall" before realizing he wasn't the shooter (2) Zamudio didn't pull out his own weapon as he didn't want to be confused as a second gunman.

The average statist just cannot get a few basic concepts:

The average joe/jane can and will show restraint, think quickly, and does not want to cause harm just because he/she is able. Zamudio may think he was lucky, and he may not recollect why he never removed his weapon in preparation to fire and it does not matter.

In this case as in many others, it was private citizens who stopped the murders. Citizens disarmed and subdued the murderer within 2 minutes of course the police did not arrive until eight minutes after 911 was called.

As the son and grandson of career Army officers and one who grew up with guns - I got my first .22 when I was twelve years old and hunted often with my grandfather - I cannot begin to see the rationale for permitting the open carrying of guns in public. I cannot imagine that my father and grandfather - who had witnessed the horrors of weaponry up close - would ever have supported publicly introducing weapons carried openly by civilians in a public place. It is a recipe for mayhem and should be banned once and for all.

Fuck You Hilsman! your “bonafides” are a bullshit trick, a typical tool we see with liberals and progressives who also love to use this with discrimination issues, education, taxes, and even the war hawk position.

Somehow I bet Hilsman does not even own a gun... Come on, frightened by a group of people with guns... what a statist pussy!

What is law enforcement typically able to do? - arrive after the crime has been committed, and are not required nor legally responsible for protecting any citizen. (Warren v. District of Columbia and others.)
