The Criminal Mind and The Concept Of Control
Flopping Aces ^ | 02-16-13 | Skookum

Posted on 02/16/2013 4:40:16 PM PST by Starman417

Emeryville, CA top cop Police Chief Ken James expresses his personal attitude toward weapons; oddly enough, it is remarkably similar to that of the criminal mind and to one of the most ruthless homicidal maniacs of history.

Police Chief Ken James, Police Chief Association’s Firearms Committee Chairman revealed his anti-Second Amendment philosophy at a conference with California lawmakers and Police Chiefs. He maintains that the concept of weapons being used for defense is a “myth”. He also expressed concern over the number of weapons owned by American citizens.

“One issue that always boggles my mind is that the idea that a gun is a defensive weapon, that is a myth. A gun is not a defensive weapon.” “A gun is an offensive weapon used to intimidate and show power.”

He explained that police carry weapons differently, they employ weapons in a:

“safe and effective manner.”

Of course they had better employ their weapons in a safe and effective manner or be fired, but what of the millions of non-police weapon owners and carriers who employ their weapons in a safe and effective manner?

Does Chief James feel the need to disarm these people as well?

Awful long time since you made a comment, pimpy:

One might almost think you’re just here to promote that blog.

Got any thoughts on that?

What does this wiser than thou chief suggest the ordinary citizen use for self protection?

And what does he tell his men to do when they approach a subject and he suddenly whips out a knife?

Of course they immediately draw in order to protect themselves.

What an ass.

Yes,what an ass. And the man is the top cop in his AO. Unreal. I wonder when the last time, if ever, this jerk ever stopped a killer? I will not wait to save my wife or my own life. I am blowing 45 cal ACP gold dots or custom loaded 45’s with liquid mercury and sorry bout that. A man who is in his position spouting his crap needs a new profession.

An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.

Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Speaking of stupid..

You’re not pimping a blog.

You were responding to a pimp who never makes comments.

Try not to get stuck and pay attention every chance you get.

James is a typically vain, untrained, seditious moron. Where’s Joseph McCarthy, when we need him?

A gun is not a defensive weapon.

Technically correct. A shield or armor are defensive weapons.

Any offensive weapon can of course be used in defense against attack.

What an idiot this guy is - under his interpretation, the only defensive weapons are desks and other objects to cower behind..
