    Anti-Gun Activists Canít Stand That Armed Citizens Stopped The TX Church Attack

    Anti-Gun Activists Canít Stand That Armed Citizens Stopped The TX Church Attack
    Posted at 3:04 pm on December 30, 2019 by Cam Edwards

    Itís been truly amazing to watch more and more gun control activists, anti-gun politicians, and pundits actually take the position that itís bad that there was an immediate armed response when a man armed with a shotgun opened fire at a church in White Settlement, Texas on Sunday. Iíve already detailed some of the tweets from Shannon Watts and members of Congress bemoaning the fact that armed citizens stopped the attack within seconds, but since that original post thereíve been plenty of others whoíve let it be known that they believe itís a bad thing that good guys with guns took down that attacker.

    Writing at The Guardian, Joan E. Greve seemed a little disappointed that Second Amendment advocates may be on to something.

    Every time the US suffers another mass shooting, gun rights activists make an argument that goes something like this: if a good guy with a gun had been there, this terrible tragedy could have been prevented.

    That argument has been dismissed by gun control groups as an unrealistic suggestion that diverts attention away from the need to strengthen laws restricting firearm access, but a shooting that occurred over the weekend has now supercharged the ďgood guy with a gunĒ defense.
    Gun control activists are now resorting to a backup argument, which goes something like this: Okay, fine, a guard with a gun stopped a shooter, but the only reason he could do it is because his years in law enforcement gave him superpowers or something close to it. On Twitter, Jon Stokes from Open Source Defense found a gaggle of gun control supporters claiming that no way could the average gun owner have responded in a similar fashion.
    More.

    It's all just expediency. I can't take any of them seriously because whatever argument they need at the moment they use and can flip to a new argument the moment a new situation arises.

    The Left hates us normal people and wants us either beneath the jackboot or dead. I think I shall not comply.

    By arguing that we should ban certain firearms because they can be used to kill a lot of people in a short period of time, gun control advocates are acknowledging that mass shooters will continue to exist. Advocates of armed civilian "good guys" pretty much accept that premise as well. Which side is pushing a more effective solution to reduce mass shooting deaths?
    It's a reasonable question.
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    This is mostly funny.

    • ďWeakness is refusing to take responsibility for your own actions, weakness is pointing your finger at someone else in a time of crisis." ó Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, blaming Trump.
    • "We hold these truths to be self evident. All men and women created by the, you know, you know, the thing." óJoe Biden, explaining the Creator.
    • "The way I see it, there's always, c'mon, there's always money. It's there." óElizabeth Warren, explaining socialism.
    • ďThe interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasnít originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.Ē óSaikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff.
    • "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." óCNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.

    No it isn’t. It frames the debate as status quo at best, and more likely in a paradigm of an even greater number of firearms. The question wants everyone to accept America as an anarchistic dystopian society with the only answer to the wholesale slaughter of your loved ones is buying more guns. It’s a sales pitch.

    So do you advocate the wholesale ban of all guns in America?
