Douche bag leftists like Erik Loomis are exactly the reason we need assault weapons. their plansa and machinations are clear as the blue sky.
As a history professor, he should know that it is head on a pike.
It sounded more like a direct death threat than incitement to me.
I wish more people understood that.
Loomis and his adherents are totalitarian stooges. In another time at another place, they would have made reliable henchmen for Stalin, Mao or Pol Pot.
“A savage is one who laughs when he hits you, and screams when you hit him.”
Does free speech include “First f*ker to say the solution is for elementary school teachers to carry guns needs to get beaten to death”
Perhaps as an outburst, but he seems very angry in general. It would be too bad if his rants turn out to foreshadow violence.
I don’t use twitter. It probably wouldn’t hurt to verify what is attributed to Loomis.
He was not engaged in any academic activity.
Was he using state property? Wouldn’t that be nice to know?
How does a History Professor not know or understand that without guns this Nation would not exist?
If all of the firearms in the world disappeared overnight, do you really think you would be safe?
I've been watching the History Channel series "Mankind: The Story of All of Us". One episode included the year 1453. That was the year that Sultan Mehmed II, ruler of the Ottoman Turks, used huge cannons to breech the walls of Constantinople and bloodily "convert" the city to Islam. That same year, Aztec religious pyramids were were literally bathed in blood as their priests used Stone Age weapons to glory in the death of their enemies by cutting out the hearts of still-living defeated warriors. Please note that no firearms were involved.
The gun is civilization, because it can be used to convince murderous barbarians to stay away from the gates. The citizens of Constantinople had no guns, no cannons. They died. Badly. So did the Stone Age people of the Americas.
