    LET'S ALL SURRENDER OUR WEAPONS -- YOU FIRST!


    April 8, 2009


    The rash of recent shooting incidents has led people who wouldn't know an AK-47 from a paintball gun to issue demands for more restrictions on guns. To be sure, it's hard to find any factor in these shootings that could be responsible -- other than the gun.

    So far, this year's public multiple shootings were committed by:

    -- Richard Poplawski, 23, product of a broken family, expelled from high school and dishonorably discharged from the Marines, who killed three policemen in Pittsburgh.

    -- Former crack addict Jiverly Wong, 41, who told co-workers "America sucks" yet somehow was not offered a job as a speechwriter for Barack Obama. Wong blockaded his victims in a civic center in Binghamton, N.Y., and shot as many people as he could, before killing himself.

    -- Robert Stewart, 45, a three-time divorcee and high school dropout with "violent tendencies" -- according to one of his ex-wives -- who shot up the nursing home in Carthage, N.C., where his newly estranged wife worked.

    -- Lovelle Mixon, 26, a paroled felon, struggling to get his life back on track by pimping, who shot four cops in Oakland, Calif. -- before eventually being shot himself.

    -- Twenty-eight-year-old Michael McLendon, child of divorce, living with his mother and boycotting family funerals because he hated his relatives, who killed 10 of those relatives and their neighbors in Samson, Ala.

    It might make more sense to outlaw men than guns. Or divorce. Or crack. Or to prohibit felons from having guns. Except we already outlaw crack and felons owning guns and yet still, somehow, Wong got crack and Mixon got a gun.

    After being pulled over for a routine traffic violation, Lovelle Mixon did exactly what they teach in driver's ed by immediately shooting four cops. Mixon's supporters held a posthumous rally in his honor, claiming he shot the cops only in "self-defense," which I take it includes the cop Mixon shot while the officer was lying on the ground.

    I guess Mixon also raped that 12-year-old girl in "self-defense." Clearly, the pimping industry has lost a good man. I wish I'd known him. I tip my green velvet fedora with the dollar signs all over it to him. Why do the good ones always die young? Pimps, I mean.

    Liberals tolerate rallies on behalf of cop-killers, but they prohibit law-abiding citizens working at community centers in Binghamton, N.Y., from being armed to defend themselves from disturbed, crack-addicted America-haters like Jiverly Wong.

    It's something in liberals' DNA: They think they can pass a law eliminating guns and nuclear weapons, but teenagers having sex is completely beyond our control.

    The demand for more gun control in response to any crime involving a gun is exactly like Obama's response to North Korea's openly belligerent act of launching a long-range missile this week: Obama leapt to action by calling for worldwide nuclear disarmament.

    If the SAT test were used to determine how stupid a liberal is, one question would be: "The best defense against lawless rogues who possess _______ is for law-abiding individuals to surrender their own _______________."

    Correct answer: Guns. We would also have accepted nuclear weapons.

    Obama explained that "the United States has a moral responsibility" to lead disarmament efforts because America is "the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon."

    So don't go feeling all morally superior to a country whose business model consists of exporting heroin, nuclear bombs and counterfeit U.S. dollars, and of importing Swedish prostitutes, you yahoo Americans with your little flag lapel pins.

    On the other hand, the Japanese haven't acted up much in the last, say, 64 years ...

    Fortunately, our sailors didn't wait around for Obama to save them when Somali pirates boarded their ship this week. Stop right now or I'll ask the U.N. to remind the "international community" that "the U.S. is not at war with Somali pirates."

    Gun-toting Americans are clearly more self-sufficient than the sissy Europeans. This is great news for everyone except Barney Frank, who's always secretly wondered what it would be like to be taken by a Somali pirate.

    Police -- whom I gather liberals intend to continue having guns -- and intrepid U.N. resolution drafters can't be everywhere, all the time.

    If a single civilian in that Binghamton community center had been armed, instead of 14 dead, there might have only been one or two -- including the shooter. In the end, the cops didn't stop Wong. His killing spree ended only when he decided to stop, and he killed himself.

    "The shooter will eventually run out of ammo" strategy may not be the best one for stopping deranged multiple murderers.

    But it's highly unlikely that any community center in the entire state would be safe from a disturbed former crack-addict like Wong because New York's restrictive gun laws require a citizen to prove he has a need for a gun to obtain a concealed carry permit.

    Instead of having Planned Parenthood distribute condoms in schools, they ought get the NRA to pass out revolvers. It would save more lives.

    +1 !! In fact, let's bring back mandatory Physical Education and institute firearms safety/marksmanship/hunting as a required course from middle school through graduation! Add in actually teaching US history and the constitution, we might stand a chance of getting our country back!

    Barney Frank and Somali Pirates made me laugh out loud.

    She sure says it like it is. My little liberal niece won't read anything I send that Ann wrote because she said Ann is a horrible person. I said I thought you libs were supposed to be open minded and believed in the 1A. I read Camille Paglia in Salon and I'M THE CLOSED MINDED REDNECK? You libs only believe in the 1A when I'm saying what is politically correct? Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin & Chavez all thought that way too.

    She's not speaking to me now, again! :eek: :D :D

    Where has our nation gone. At the turn of the century (the last one) shooting was the major sport of the land. Marksmanship contests were held all over the country and the public filled spectator stands.

    Gun is quickly becoming a bad word. It is a word that in some future time will only be whispered by those few civilians that have managed to hold on to them. Guns will only be posessed by those in power and they will surely hold that power over the heads of the helpless. That time is coming. Perhaps not in our generation but will come sooner than later.

    I have found that much of our current misery traces itself back the Kennedy klan. They gave us Ted the swimmer who gave us the 68 gun act. Ted also started the immigration fiasco we now enjoy.
