Brady Campaign:"Everyone's As Stupid As We Are"
daysofourtrailers.blogspot.com ^ | 17 June, 2013 | NA

Posted on 06/17/2013 9:38:34 AM PDT by marktwain

So now get this story, BradyBot Chairthing Heidi Yewman decided to 'prove' how easy it is to get and carry a firearm even for ignorant, stupid people.  So, being ignorant and stupid, she does so.

Tony told me a Glock doesn’t have an external safety feature, so when I got home and opened the box and saw the magazine in the gun I freaked. I was too scared to try and eject it as thoughts flooded my mind of me accidentally shooting the gun and a bullet hitting my son in the house or rupturing the gas tank of my car, followed by an earth-shaking explosion. This was the first time my hands shook from the adrenaline surge and the first time I questioned the wisdom of this 30-day experiment.

She's seen to many movies and read to many Brady press releases although assuming the gun was loaded is one of the '4 Rules'.

I needed help. I drove to where a police officer had pulled over another driver. Now, writing this, I realize that rolling up on an on-duty cop with a handgun in tow might not have been fully thought through.
I told him I just bought a gun, had no clue how to use it. I asked him to make sure there were no bullets in the magazine or chamber. He took the magazine out and cleared the chamber. He assured me it was empty and showed me how to look. Then he told me how great the gun was and how he had one just like it.
Yeah, she needs mental help if she has a panic attack even seeing a gun w/ a magazine in it.
The cop thought I was an idiot and suggested I take a class. But up to that point I’d done nothing wrong, nothing illegal.

Most people probably think she's an idiot w/o it having anything to do w/ firearms.  

 The gun makes me more fearful than I could have imagined.
In some way, I feel a certain vindication. I was right to protest Starbucks policy. Today, they have a woman with absolutely no firearms training and a Glock on her hip sitting within arm’s reach of small children, her hands shaking and adrenaline surging.
Which just increases the likelyhood of something happening.

Basically one of two things will happen.

1) Nothing.  She will basically show that even being ignorant and stupid /= death and destruction although that won't stop her righteous indignation against firearm ownership.


2) Something. Her ignorance and stupidity will prove her right.  She'll have a negligent discharge, possibly hurting someone, but she'll be vindicated as she deals w/ all the legal ramifications of her negligence.


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Health/Medicine; Politics; Society
KEYWORDS: banglist; glock; guncontrol; hoplophobia
Notice her equating "wrong" with "illegal". Clearly she has done something "wrong". She took possession of some machinery that has her scared to distraction and which she is completely ignorant about. Yet she claims that she did nothing "wrong" because she did nothing "illegal".

This is a major base of statist philosophy. The state determines what is "wrong" by making it illegal. If the state says it is not illegal, then it is not wrong.

This is exactly the philosophy that so many in NAZI Germany, the Soviet Union, and Mao's China relied on and which lead to so many mass murders.

what an idiot....you go to a range, rent a gun while taking lessons, then and only then do you buy a firearm or rifle. Lordy this woman would by a complete ski outfit, get in her car, and then panic the first time she hit black ice......at least in that scenario she night just do herself in a spin out

I am a total noob with guns. So, before I went out an bought one, I went to a conceal carry class to learn basic gun safety and how to load and clear one. I also bought a gun safe and installed it in a closet BEFORE I bought a gun. I then went a shot numerous types of guns to try them out before I bought one. I bought a Beretta PX4 Storm and am now quite comfortable with it. This person is an idiot.

If you read through the rest of the posting, you'll find the root of her hoplophobia:

Today, they have a woman with absolutely no firearms training and a Glock on her hip sitting within arm’s reach of small children, her hands shaking and adrenaline surging.

There you have it. She's not afraid of the gun, she's afraid of herself. She believes she is one heartbeat from flying into a rage, out of control, and becoming a murderer.

She doesn't need a gun safety class. She needs professional medical help.

Holy crap. This is one of the most tragically comic articles I’ve ever read!

She opened a case containing a new firearm and went into fits because the magazine was in the gun? What the Hell business does this woman have being around children let alone firearms? She wets her pants just SEEING a gun? My God! How many years of conditioning did it take to evoke that response? Does she thoroughly soil herself in the same way when someone fires up a chainsaw? How about a lawnmower?

She should go out and buy a frontloader and drive it around her neighborhood. Assuming she actually drives, she’d probably think she was more competent with it than she really is and wind up destroying half the mailboxes in her neighborhood.

This is downright terrifying, I agree with the article. This woman has no business owning a gun. And ya know what? That’s the beauty of this nation! You are surrounded by people who do so that you do not.

The gun makes me more fearful than I could have imagined.


This right here is the problem and it can be easily explained.

When I bought my very first motorcycle at the age of 43, I remember riding it back to my home on the freeway. I was afraid to go over 50 as cars whizzed by me. Within two weeks I had pegged the speedo at 120 and felt comfortable commuting in the HOV lane in Seattle at night during rush hour in a driving rain storm. Ok, maybe two months...

And when I bought my first real rifle, an SKS, I felt like I was holding something “evil” until I snapped out of it and put 15 rounds through it. It is not evil, it is just powerful and demands respect, similar to the thinking you should have when driving a car.

The whole article is simply her projecting and the title says it all.

The law has the appearance of morality and this woman obviously looks to her source of power to validate right and wrong. So, she confuses legal/illegal with issues relating to personal responsibility, as if government must always specify the entire set of rules about the use of something that can injure or kill. This is the same type of world view that causes the instruction book for a kitchen range to have multiple pages of warnings including “CAUTION: YOU CAN BURN YOURSELF!” or my favorite- if you child sits on the open oven door, the STOVE MIGHT TIP OVER!!.

And such people project their fears and anxieties onto the rest of us. It is not being careless or unthinking, but elitism that leads to such projection.

I pity such people, and work diligently to make sure that such fearful fools are never in control of my life.

Ignorance can be cured, stupidity not so much.

To own a gun when you don't know how to use it and its mere presence scares you is not good.
Take a basic gun safety class and have your fear replaced by healthy respect.
THEN decide whether you want to carry or not.
If you don't trust yourself to do it, fine. I can respect that. Just don't project your mistrust onto everyone else.

After trying to understand the underlying philosophy for decades, I think it is this:

For about two thirds of people, they expect someone to tell them what is right and wrong. In the U.S. most of them obtain this information from their religion.

For those who reject religion, many, if not most, substitute the State. They equate legal with moral. This woman felt that she was being unfairly accused of being an idiot, because she had not done anything illegal. The whole point of the article, from her perspective, is that training must be required by the state to buy a pistol. Because if it is not illegal to buy a pistol without having a clue, the state is sending a message that it is perfectly acceptable behavior.

The key to understand this, is these people yeild are responsibility and judgement to the state.

Chairthing Heidi Yewman is the sort of person that occasionally tempts me to think that some gun control might actually be good, but then I quit daydreaming when I realize that while Yewman should not be allowed to be anywhere near a firearm, she should also not be allowed to vote, drive, speak, except when spoken to, leave home unaccompanied by a male relative, or wear pants and shoes.

Sadly, I would not give the government any of those powers, so to be consistent I must deny the government the power of gun control as well, nice as it might be to rid myself of unwanted exposure to Yewman.

Perhaps she should take this experiment farther. Next she should try and rob a bank to show just how easy it is for an idiot with a legal glock to rob a bank. That would really make a point!

We can stipulate that the author of this piece is an idiot. Therefore, let us proceed to more interesting things.

And when I bought my first real rifle, an SKS,

Many years ago, I shot regularly at a relatively uncontrolled rifle & pistol range on state DNR land. One fine day, some individuals had placed a bowling ball at the base of the berm, and were shooting at it with various pistols ... seemingly without effect. Curious, I turned my scope on it to watch. To my surprise, they were actually hitting it. Repeatedly. The bullets simply splattered off. I heard one of them exclaim "This is bull$#!+!!!" ... and unlimber an SKS.

Ten rounds reduced the bowling ball to small shards.

Handguns are handguns. Rifles (even medium powered ones) are rifles.

“Because I’m a complete moron everyone else must be a complete moron, too.”
That’s some s-for-brains reasoning right there.

Let’s have a little fun with this logic-


The video had said a semi doesn’t actually use the key to start the engine, so when I climbed into the driver’s seat and saw the key in cylinder I freaked. I was too scared to try and pull it out as thoughts flooded my mind of me accidentally starting the truck and it taking off at high speed across the school’s parking lot, followed by an earth-shaking explosion. This was the first time my hands shook from the adrenaline surge and the first time I questioned the wisdom of this 30-day experiment.

I needed help. I walked to where an Instructor had pulled over another driver. Now, writing this, I realize that walking up to an on-duty Instructor in the middle of doing his job might not have been fully thought through.
I told him I had always wanted to be a truck driver and had no clue how to start one. I asked him to make sure there were no defects in the switch or any other part of the cab. He took the roster out and started checking names. He assured me all the semi’s were in perfect condition and asked me for my name and student ID. Then he told me, “Who the h- are you and what are you doing in here?”

The Instructor thought I was an idiot and suggested I actually pay and take a class. But up to that point I’d done nothing wrong, nothing illegal. Well, maybe trespassing.

The large trucks made me more fearful than I could have imagined.

In some way, I feel a certain vindication. I was right to protest DOT policy. Today, they have a woman with absolutely no professional training trying to hot-wire a tractor trailer sitting across from a school filled with small children, her hands shaking and adrenaline surging.


Idiot.

In Pennsylvania it would be illegal without a license. She was carrying in a vehicle and wasn't going target shooting, hunting, or to a licensed place of sale or repair.

OK ... I'm less interested in the youtube, though, than in numerical analysis.

So ... .500 S&W Magnum seems to be the "most powerful" commercially available handgun round in the US today. 350gr at 1975 ft/s ==> 3031 ft-lbf muzzle energy. That number compares favorably with a .30-'06. It's also about 5x greater than a maximum load .45 Auto (ACP). I expect it would have shattered the bowling ball.

However ... .30-06 is sort of middlin' as modern rifle cartridges go. Compare to .300 Lapua Magnum 201 gr @ 3200 ft/s ==> 4585 ft-lbf. Or .460 WbyMag (7504 ft-lbf).

Or let's be ridiculous ... .50BMG: 800gr @ 2895ft/s ==>14,895 ft-lbf.

So ... there's overlap. And it's certainly impressive that a revolver cartridge can compare favorably to a rifle standard like .30-'06. But I think it's still interesting and instructive that ballistics which seem "extreme" in a handgun seem "average" in a rifle.

Nooooo, no T-Rex thumper for me. When I was young I liked magnum handguns and standard cartridge rifles. As I continued getting older and older, I flipped, liking gentle handguns and magnum rifles. The S&W 500s would cripple my arthritic hands.

I forgot to mention ...

That range is now closed. Bullets were (allegedly) striking a barn and equipment shed on a farm outside the DNR land. Although I also heard that some idiots thought that the appropriate place to put their targets was ON TOP of the berm. So I'm not sure which set of individuals precipitated the closure.

led her to the Million Mom March held a year later in Washington DC and subsequently to a board position on the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, where she works on public policy designed to keep kids safe from guns. Heidi also wrote a book about the devastating impact of gun violence, Beyond the Bullet.

A recent investment was in the Asking Saves Kids Campaign; a campaign that places billboard ads asking parents to ensure that their kids are safe in the places they play and spend time.

Heidi is a mother of two, a writer, and activist. She lives in Vancouver, Washington, and in her spare time, Heidi plays competitive tennis, runs and spends a lot of time at coffee shops with her husband Dave.

Perhaps Heidi's time would be better spent advocating for funds to be used in researching and identifying the 'stupid' gene. While some might suspect her actions in doing so would be self serving, I have every reason to believe as far as she's concerned, they couldn't possibly be.

Author of the original piece has an undiagnosed mental disorder, or some other kind of imprinting on her psyche we're unaware of (and she may be as well) causing her to act out like a lunatic. I'm sure she considers herself entirely normal and a model of what correct thinking ought to be. But hey, I'm the type of nut who'd take my gun back to the gun store where I bought it instead of waving down a cop during an unrelated traffic stop to help me load it with bullets.

Seriously committed gun control advocates always seem to have an obvious personality disorder even though they consider themselves to be advocates for thoughtful and reasonable measures -- even when they're advocating the most draconian legislation. There's just something about the most vocal members of the gun control crowd that shows their side of the issue is a magnet for nervously-unstable moonbats who always seem to be dancing right on the precipice of absolutely losing their minds.

Side observation of mine that may or may not be irrelevant, but I cannot ignore it: Where's her husband (or, her children's sperm donor) mentioned in all this? If there IS one, then they've got an atomic family of lunatics. If there isn't one, boy, I bet there's a big dramatic story behind that, huh? Seeing that this is from 'Ms.' magazine, I'm sure that my observations posted here would send an avalanche of down arrows upon me over on that site.

Anyway, just try to imagine being the ex-husband of this woman and reading online what she's been up to lately. I'd be writing my own book entitled 'Boys, Don't Stick Your Dick In Crazy' and giving it away for free.

Hell, I think it would cripple my hands. However, there is a youtube video showing a woman - Texas woman to be precise - firing a 500 mag using one hand.

I fired a Taurus Judge not long ago and that was extreme - for me. I would like to fire a 500 mag, but I do not think the FFL's around where I live - MD - have one to test.

There is a cool video on youtube featuring F. Lee Emry comparing a M16 and an AK 47 - single round power, disassembly and assembly, and accuracy at full auto.

You definitely should get out of the way if you see her mowing her lawn. God knows what she could do with those rotating mower blades.

In fact, I hope she has no power tools at all. She probably shouldn’t be allowed to buy real knives or scissors either. Stick with blunt children’s stuff. Safer for all of us.

She says “Getting the permit to carry a concealed weapon was simple. I filled out a form, had my fingerprints taken for a background check and paid $56.50. No training required. It took far longer to get my dog a license.”

I can’t believe that is true. How bad is getting a dog license? Don’t you just show them the proof of shots, and pay a fee?

It is funny how she conflates her ignorance with a legal issue. I don’t have any of that training, but I could buy a gun and use it. Of course, I grew up in a country where I was allowed to play with toy guns, and I play with paintball guns and airsoft guns, and I was in the boy scouts so I shot a rifle in my day.

If I actually bought a gun, I’d go to a range, take a class, and practice, because I would want to make sure I could hit something if I had to. Not because the government required me to.
