I own and use guns. For hunting and yes, self-protection because I live in the country. But when I lived in NYC and ran street patrols in a fairly high crime neighborhood, I didn’t use guns and frankly, didn’t need guns. I made certain via confrontations with the mayor and working with the police in my precinct, that we had police patrol reforms such as getting them out of the cars and into the streets and by making civilian arrests using mainly our neighborhood muscle. Crime fell and we were much safer. The recent flood of high-power guns falling into the hands of mentally disturbed people or drug crime syndicates is causing mayhem and distress. I would never run a civilian street patrol today, it is far too dangerous. And we see in Mexico what happens when everyone is armed with high-speed firing guns: both the US and Mexico have more than 30,000 people a year dying because of firearms used to commit crimes or suicide.
Once again, we have the political debate raging about firearm controls: White House responds to pro-gun rights petition to deport CNN host Piers Morgan, defending free speech. The gun lobby, as usual, goes way out on the limb by trying to silence critics. As a gun owner, I am ashamed of the NRA and associated groups. They think, by acting like thugs and threatening people, they will win their argument. This is stupid. They are, instead, forcing people to think that maybe the unhinged people, the insane people who aren’t supposed to have guns are…NRA members and other gun lobbyists.
Responsible gun owners remain mainly silent while these mentally ill paranoid lunatics yell about the need to have no control over guns. This is, to be blunt, insane. We have many controls over cars and trucks due to their capacity to kill and maim and these laws and regulations such as drunk driving laws are still not good enough because drunks still drive and kill. In an ideal world cars would have devices that can discover if someone is drunk or stoned and then turn off the car’s ignition. Just because drunk drivers still manage to drive doesn’t mean we cease having drunk driving penalty laws.
As per usual, the media hosts lunatics who like to act up in public: Alex Jones, creator of ‘Deport Piers Morgan’ petition, blows up on CNN. Alex Jones is a person who has gone out on the limb to expose the Bilderberg conspirators and the other secret elite organizations. This activity is sane. He is 100% correct about these organizations needing daylight and exposure. He also is correct that the news media owners are members of these various secret organizations like the Bohemian Grove participants and the Skull and Bones, etc. Because they are part of these elitist conspiracies, and because they are protected by armed government paid thugs, he has put himself into danger to cover the convocations of these conspirators.
This seems to have unhinged him. I am a child of these Elitists. For the last thousand years, my family collective has been elites first in Europe then in the US. Many of today’s elites are not the old Norman ruling class though many Normans still are quite involved in being elites. Today’s elites are global and they have been sucked into the older Norman elite system and operate under the aegis of these ancient Regime elites. This is why I do not run around with guns yelling about killing people due to elitist controls.
I do understand how outsiders get crazy about all this. Only, gunning down innocent school children isn’t the solution, it is a severe problem. Alex Jones doesn’t understand how his often justified paranoia is becoming pathological. Just like on the left, when the struggle to end the Vietnam War failed and we had to wait for the US to go bankrupt (hint: we did go bankrupt when Nixon was finally forced to suddenly terminate the gold standard) leftists went violent and talked about killing everyone. The movement disintegrated and the fringe members went for guns and bombs and assassinations.
The Raw StoryIn a video posted to YouTube and Facebook on Wednesday, Tactical Response CEO James Yeager went ballistic over reports that the president could take executive action with minor gun control measures after the mass shooting of 20 school children in Connecticut last month.
After the Drudge Report likened Obama to Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin on Wednesday, pro-gun conservatives expressed outrage over the idea that the White House could act without Congress.
There are a lot of tattooed, scary, skinhead males out there waving guns and screaming they will kill us if we disarm them. Too stupid to understand they make the case of people wanting to disarm them. These angry males are terrorizing the rest of us, whether it be gun gangsta thugs in the poor minority communities, Hispanic teens pretending to be cartel members and then shooting each other for fun at parties, the army of mental zombies running around America bombing and shooting people in mass numbers is due to the unhinged rhetoric on the right about the right to bear arms.
We cannot have irresponsible, angry, crazy people running around shooting everything in sight. Even people who imagine they are responsible and sane are dangerous when there is something happening that is disturbing which is why police overshoot with guns, too. They spray things because it is easy to spray bullets with modern firearms. The ‘one shot/one kill’ business has been dead since Vietnam. It is all about peppering everything with firearm power.
We need a citizen militia to defend us from the government,” ex-Marine Sgt. Charles A. Dyer said in the mini-documentary. “That is the only reason we have the Second Amendment, is to defend the American people and our country from a tyrannical government, which is what we are heading toward right now.”
“We are definitely the guardians of the Republic and the last stand if something comes down,” he added, saying the U.S. invaded Iraq to feed the military-industrial complex. “So, join the military? Depends on what you want to do with it. Me, I’m going to use my training from the military and become one of those ‘domestic terrorists’ that the DHS is so afraid of.”
Dyer was sentenced to 30 years in prison last year after a jury found him guilty of raping his girlfriend’s 7-year-old daughter. Dyer said his arrest was part of a government conspiracy.
The government does use sex to control people. We have sex laws all over the place and amending these or expanding these laws is a long, drawn out process. The last election, due to lobbyists preventing anyone from dissenting positions on Israel, the war against Muslims or the banking system, ended up being all about sex laws and civil rights of women. The general impetus of the present right is anti-women’s rights and unfettered rules for guns. This is a dangerous mix that alarm most women and rightfully so. Allowing angry men to have complete access to a cornucopia of guns while destroying rape laws and making it illegal for a woman to get an abortion even if raped is a toxic mix which infuriates me greatly.
The flaking man in the above story is typical of the far right: the left tried to stop the military industrial complex back when it was still energetic and we failed totally. I figured back then that the bankruptcy of our government would do the job but this was fixed by the floating fiat currency which encouraged both Germany and Japan to bankroll US government debt created by the Reagan tax cuts to fund our military expansionism. So the military rolled relentlessly onwards based on trade deficit debt deals. Which systematically destroyed jobs here in the US leaving mainly military industrial jobs as the only manufacturing jobs for Americans.
Which is why we have so much support for this wasteful system. Fixing it means being politically active. Of course, Congress is thoroughly corrupted by lobbyist bribes today, both the Democratic and Republican parties so we see rising tensions, in this case, on the right with the pro-gun/anti-women’s rights efforts and on the left with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Both are being radicalized by the elite’s efforts at control which has attempted to freeze things in place so they can continue to get richer at our expense.
The far right is very dangerous due to being sexually repressed as well as incapable of imagining that elitist politics is stupid: Anger as Norway police drop Breivik response probe. It isn’t just the US, Europe has the same problem. Here is another story showing how pro-gun, anti-women’s rights people think: Wisconsin clergyman: Homosexuality like school shootings because both ‘violate nature’. These people are homophobic on top of hating women being free to choose sexual solutions or to act as free agents. Keeping gays in closets and women in the kitchen is the agenda of the far right.
What is ‘nature’, anyways? In nearly all mammalian communities, females choose their mates not the other way around. Ditto with birds and reptiles not to mention fish. Spiders, too. Wasps. Bees. Whatever. The males fight each other and then petition the females for sex. Yes, Mallard duck males can mob and rape a female. But they are typical exceptions. No male can run a harem such as lions or gorillas without the consent of the females. When the females dislike a winner in a fight for dominance, they leave the male behind after snarling at him and go off to seek a better candidate.
The male desire in human communities to control female choice via harsh laws like in some Muslim societies is increasingly condemned like in this story: Marriage of elderly Saudi man with teen girl sparks public outcry. Several Saudi very young girls have managed to stop being sold to very old men after going public with their distress. The US claims we are killing people in Afghanistan to free the women there even though this is also a thuggish response to women’s rights. Namely, we don’t earn these rights out of the barrel of a gun, we win these in the ‘hearts and minds’ arena.
That is, we must persuade men to grant us and then honor our civil rights. We see the right refusing to do this over and over again. The difference between the Taliban and the US right wing preachers is vanishingly small. Both want to lock women and gays into perpetual slavery. Both want to deny us our basic human rights. The Norway assassin wanted to destroy the civil rights of many people, too. So did the Oklahoma City bomber: Timothy McVeigh – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
While in high school, McVeigh became interested in computers and hacked into government computer systems on his Commodore 64, under a handle – “The Wanderer” – borrowed from the song by Dion DiMucci. In his senior year, McVeigh was named Starpoint Central High School’s “most promising computer programmer,” but maintained relatively poor grades up until his 1986 graduation.
McVeigh was introduced to firearms by his grandfather, and told people he wanted to be a gun shop owner and sometimes took firearms to school to impress his classmates. McVeigh became intensely interested in gun rights after he graduated from high school, as well as the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, and read magazines such as Soldier of Fortune. He briefly attended Bryant & Stratton College before dropping out.
His bio reads like so many bios of mass murderers. The cyber world appeals to them mainly because there are no pesky real females to defy or teach them how to behave. They can masturbate to male fantasies just like the Pope and his gang in the Vatican who play ‘Exorcist’ games. This closet sex is death sex. The McVeigh mass murderer was angry because a crazy Texas neo-Christian End of Times sect decided to get in an armed confrontation with the police and shot some of them dead which led to the siege that so enraged McVeigh.
This siege was infuriating because it was used to practice Black Magic arts when the government used an agency used to enforce US rule over Muslims was activated one night. That was the night they played tapes of rabbits being tortured, black magic rock band music and timed it to be with the full moon, using magic numbers and other things. I was furious when they did this and called the BATF about it and told them this was unacceptable. Then the fire was started when a tank was sent to storm the building. The entire Waco business was full of nasty things, both on the embattled right wing group and the government in Texas and DC.
Even as the right wing yells about guns, the real battle over power is here: Bradley Manning granted 112-day reduction in possible sentence which is cruel since they are talking about giving him a sentence of life in prison. And insulting since the reduction (sic) was for days he was tortured. Of course, the entire issue of torturing prisoners was evaded by our corrupt courts as we see here, too: U.S. Lawyers Divided Over Prosecuting Terrorism Cases and they are ‘divided’ because of the torture issue. The crazy gun nuts don’t want to end torture which is why the far right and most of the GOP wants to force women who are physically attacked even at gun point and then raped, to carry the rapist’s baby.
The people who want to stop torture, who want to stop the military/industrial complex, who want to stop the CIA from running riot across the planet, assassinating peasants, are the leftists who are NOT armed with guns but who try desperately to convince people, to win hearts and minds.
