rebuttals to "Gun Control"
The gun grabbers' consistent assaults on people who value their rights reek of desperation. No longer are they happy with merely calling us extremists or demeaning firearms ownership by claiming we are simply compensating for small genitalia. It is no longer enough to lie about defensive gun uses and mislead the public about school shootings.
They now have crossed the line.
According to Dan Cannon of Guns Save Lives – the intrepid site that documents near daily instances of defensive gun uses – the gun grabbers are now comparing open carry advocates to the terrorist group ISIS.
In case you were wondering, ISIS is the militant group Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. If you haven't been following the news, they are not only waging jihad against the United States and the U.S. military, they have also seized control of Mosul, Iraq and the city of Fallujah – another city so many of our brave military members fought and died to liberate – after a series of offensives this month.
ISIS is a terrorist group. Founded by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, these animals aim to murder anyone whom they consider "collaborators with the occupation" in the Middle East. They want to remove the Shia population and establish a purely Islamic state. These savages don't care whom they kill on their path to their caliphate. They have launched attacks on humanitarian agencies, carried out suicide bombings, and have attempted to use chemical weapons.
And yet, the gun grabbers, in their desperation to paint gun owners in a negative light, now have begun to compare gun owners to ISIS. This photo appeared in the liberal Daily Kos a few days ago.
Classic deception by the "Mommies"
Like Dan Cannon, I've never been a fan of the in-your-face tactics of groups such as Open Carry Texas. I think they lack maturity and respect when they come tromping into restaurants, wielding their bang sticks, because they can. However, using a photo intentionally taken by one of the Mommies Demanding Action Attention from an angle that makes the group look like they're menacing innocent people, when, in fact, they were merely taking a group photo, and then comparing them to terrorists is beyond the pale.
Maybe the Daily Kos missed the fact that ISIS has declared all gun ownership illegal in Iraq, except those used by their terrorist thugs, of course. This makes ISIS more like the gun grabbing politicians the Daily Kos and the various Bloomberg-funded astroturf organizations support, than like peaceable citizens working to protect their rights.
Maybe the Daily Kos missed the fact that ISIS practices Wahhabism – a version of Islam that literally enslaves women, kills them for being immodest and sells them to old, disgusting perverts from a young age. Meanwhile, pro-Second Amendment groups empower women, advocate training, self-defense and independence.
Maybe the Daily Kos missed the fact that ISIS wants to destroy infidels – anyone who doesn't believe in the same version of God they do. Gun owners and Second Amendment rights advocates like JPFO don't care what you believe, as long as you respect others' rights.
Oh, and by the way...
ISIS uses propaganda and psychological operations to demonstrate its power, its violence, its ability to destroy the enemy, and it uses the Internet, social media and broadcast outlets to promote its agenda and condemn its enemies. Frankly, these tactics sound more like those of the Daily Kos, Everytown and the Mommies than those of law-abiding citizens exercising their rights.
So why resort to such transparently desperate tactics?
Probably because despite some very high-profile murders of late, the gun grabbers are losing.
Their misrepresentations have been debunked.
We continue to expose their lies, both in social media and on various other websites.
And honest researchers like Dr. John Lott continue to discredit the biased numbers and statistics Bloomberg and his ilk peddle in vain efforts to destroy our Second Amendment rights.
Nothing they do seems to work!
And so, they shamelessly insult and abuse those of us who value our rights. They hurl ad hominem attacks about our obvious lack of sexual prowess and attempts to compensate for it with our firearms. They call us "extremists," and compare us to terrorists.
All of this to hide the fact that they are losing.
Even with Barack Obama in the White House, trying to destroy the gun industry, shut down gun stores and use his bully pulpit to pressure legislators into passing new gun laws...
Even with the parents of victims hurling their rage toward us in an attempt to blame gun owners, the gun lobby, and anyone else who is not the actual killer...
Even with high profile murders that have horrified the nation, and the gun grabbers doing their opportunistic dance in the blood of innocents, using tragedy to further their political agenda, and the recent anti-freedom Supreme Court decision...
They are still losing.
So while they crossed the line in this latest, appalling slur against gun owners, it reeks of desperation, and we need to continue telling the truth about our rights, protecting our freedoms, and exposing gun banner lies wherever and whenever we can.
The truth will give us victory, even if it will be a hard slog to the top.
