    Dueling emotions on gun control flare anew


    The Open Carry pro-gun movement and its opposite number on the political fence, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, ratcheted up the rhetoric this week with dueling statements that show the battle over letting people pack firearms in public is not even close to dying down.

    OpenCarry.org, the group pushing for a national expansion of the right of law-abiding citizens to tote unloaded -- or loaded -- firearms in the open, fired off a public statement condemning a bill, AB1934, to prohibit people from openly carrying even unloaded weapons in California. The bill by state Assemblywoman Lori Saldana, D-San Diego, is making its way through the Legislature -- and the OpenCarry statement called it "histrionic," saying Saldana "has misled legislators, the media and the public at large into believing that AB1934 would not impact private property rights."

    As a group, we no doubt have way more members than the Brady campaign... but we don't have the big buck sponsors on the left who want the public disarmed. It would be nice if we had our own Soros, but we don't.

    I have just two words for the Brady Campaign, and their little sign-toting subgroup the Million Mom March:

    Assault, vandalism, property damage, spitting, slander, libel, illegal campaign contributions, and attempted murder.

    Yeah, the Brady Campaign and MMM are a real bunch of law-abiding, peace-loving cupcakes alright...

    Any time ANY person tries to quote a Brady statistic or tries to say what a good thing the MMM is, I just look at them with a smile and say:

    "Barbara Graham"
    And walk away...

    I find it interesting to see that these same people, who usually find a group and use their special interests as an excuse to eliminate rights, are labeling a group specifically to be persecuted and removed from rights...

    It's as if they know their own ploys so well, they even know how to screw it up the best.

    how do people like this live? Their thought process must be so messed up. I just cant imagine being that much of an idiot. I've had conversations with people that share a similar mentality to some of the people described in that one article about MMM. I usually leave the conversation with a little less hope for humanity. It's just amazing how these sheltered individuals can take their freedoms for granted so much that they're willing to give them up or even rush the process along a little bit.
    HOOAH?
