That’s right, you read that correctly, after 3 1/2 years of being a pro-gun blogger. I’ve decided to switch sides and joining the anti-gunners.
Why am I doing this?
Mostly out of pity. Gun blog after gun blog has decried how the Brady Campaign and CGSV appear to be in an ever downward spiral. And sometimes, you just feel sorry for your opponent, so I’m giving them a helping hand.
Besides, it should be relaxing not having to conceive of real arguments and just utilizing hyperbole and scary imagery. Should give my brain a rest for a while…
Seriously, do we REALLY want Hispanics owning guns? Why is the NRA fighting for their rights anyways?
The NRA advocates for the use of holsters and good safety practices (and erasers). But don’t be deterred….they want a gun in every backpack of every child.
ANTI-GUN BlOGGING 101
Example of how to twist the facts and sensationalize. First, see if there is any way to get your number higher. You could say 10,176 people were shot and killed in 2005. But better yet, you could find out how many people died in 2005, and say 68% of the 14,965 murders. People just see the bigger number in red and don’t finish the reading the rest. Strategy two, make no mention of justified homicide by police or citizens. Nor exclude suicide, after all suicide is just self-murder. Now we’ve got a nice frightening and robust number to work our objectives with!
Here is a guide from California to weapons we need to ban.
They’re very scary, look at the pictures. Though these firearms are not different in mechanical functionality, being semi-automatic like many sporting rifles – they are SCARY. See, they’re all BLACK!!!!
Black is scary. People are scared of black. (Is this racially motivated?) And it is bad to scare people. Ignore the fact that many of these designs are older than your grandfather. They’re lethal and black!
Remember our rules about gun control…
- We don’t support the banning of firearms, just the making them unavailable to anyone outside of law enforcement and military.
- Any time someone under 30 is killed, even gang banger, remember they’re a child. No, really, someone gave birth to them, so they are “someone’s” child. So it’s not a lie. They are children.
- If it’s black it’s evil, unless its a 30 year old black gang banger killed by a gun owning citizen, then it’s a child.
- Remember, there are three types of lies “White Lies, Damn Lies & Statistics” be sure to use all three to your advantage. Remember, children and most women have small arms. Therefore any killing done by a woman or child can be used to further your statistics just state that you were using ‘murders’ by “Rifles, shotguns and small arms”.
- Loophole, we can call almost anything a loophole. And when you say it’s a loophole, you can tell any white lies you want.
- Remember, social media is not your friend. But traditional media is! Anytime there is a gun incident or fire arm issue in the news, remember to send a press report to your local newspaper (which laid off nearly all it’s editorial staff a decade ago). They’ll just reprint your entire press release as their article. Sure, they’ll take credit for it. But who cares, we got all our agenda in. Of course, if they’re a bad bad little editor, they might toss in one token viewpoint from a moderate hunter so as not to look biased.
- DON’T FORGET to blame ANYTHING that happens after June 26, 2008 on the Heller decision:
