Anti-NRA Protester: You Shouldnĺt Be Able to Protect Yourself With a Gun If Your Life Is in Danger
The Blaze ^ | April 18, 2014 @ 1049 | The Blaze

Posted on 04/21/2014 4:56:30 PM PDT by progunner

When MRCTV’s Dan Joseph talked with protesters outside the National Rifle Association’s headquarters in Fairfax, Va., earlier this week, he was able to really encapsulate the anti-gun crowd’s argument against the Second Amendment.

When asked if a person who believes their life is in danger should be able to defend themselves with a firearm, one protester simply said, “No.”

“Only a law enforcement officer should be allowed to use weapons,” she said. The same woman also told Joseph that he shouldn’t be able to carry a gun in a bad neighborhood, because he shouldn’t be walking around in a bad neighborhood in the first place.

Another protester claimed that 30,000 people die every year to gun violence, and it’s all the NRA’s fault.

“People who go out and buy a bunch of guns” are just paranoid and misinformed, a female protester argued.

Well,,,, I'll tell you what lady,,,, I'll just grab your "wide load" and use you for a shield.

“Only a law enforcement officer should be allowed to use weapons,”

Where in the heck did this numb skull get her education. I have yet to see 911 respond faster than a life saving bullet.

shouldn’t be walking around in a bad neighborhood in the first place

He lady,,,, did it ever occur to you that not everybody can afford to live in a cushy neighborhood? Guess not huh?

30,000 people die every year to gun violence see foot note 1

Wonder if she has a clue about how many lives were saved because of guns.

it’s all the NRA’s fault

Good grief,,,, I;m certainly relieved that us gun totting patriots weren't included in who's at fault. Phew!!!! for a brief moment I thought I was a serial killer.

are just paranoid

No lady,,,, but what we are is alive and well,

The police -- Faster than a speeding bullet!

Not. Most of the time all they can do for you is tag and bag you and maybe, MAYBE catch the perp after the fact.

Well good for her. As for me and mine we will just blow the perp away. When she comes to protest our action we will just be glad we are still alive to hear her naivety. If she gets blown away we will raise a toast to her commitment.

If the adults slain at Sandy Hook could have a do-over, I’m sure they would have prefered to have faced Adam Lanza with a gun in their own hands as opposed to heroically shielding the kids with their bodies.

And I just made up a fresh keg of stump juice,,,, I'll save ya one huge slash of it my friend. Hydrometer=171. If I ever see someone in danger I'm first going to ask if he/she is a liberal. If the answer is yes I'll simply bid them a good day and move on.

Meanwhile Detroit is racking up a banner year for defensive shootings which are primarily people defending their homes. I’m guessing this idiot thinks the people should just escape out a back door if someone kicks in the front door.

Time of flight of life saving bullet: .01 seconds.
Time to find shovel: 2 minutes.
Time to dig shallow grave for assailant: 30 minutes (more if ground is rocky).
Time to drop corpse in grave: 2 minutes (depends on size).
Time to cover up: 5 minutes.
Time left until police arrive: 19 minutes.

Yep. It’s doable....

Well, on the one hand I am happy that such mentally deficient and unstable persons as those gun control advocates realize that they should not have access to weapons.

On the other, I really wish they would stop projecting their psychosis and inherent deficiencies onto the rest of the population.

C’mon. Public school employees are too mentally unstable to be allowed to even look at a firearm, much less have one where they might touch it. Isn’t that what the Democrats have been telling us? Apparently they have to be that way to get hired.

I believe so. Private citizens have need for firearms for the exact same reasons the police do (plus a few). Likewise for large-capacity magazines, an assortment of pistols and rifles, and specialized rounds.

Did anyone tell her that she is openly advocating a police state?

In CT it has been documented time and time again that it is the 11th bullet and more that do all the bad killing which is why magazines are limited to 10 rounds. The legislators presented these documents to the public while the open and public debate over the new CT law ensued.

All the above is a steaming pile. So much for the democratic process. But the new law is the most blatant racist effort I’ve ever seen. The poor are usually the “wrong color” and without a way to get to Middletown, CT to get any permits, nor $116 in 4 separate checks (if they have a bank account) to apply. But it is not infringing it is making sure the wrong colored folks cannot get guns OR AMMO legally.

“Only a law enforcement officer should be allowed to use weapons,”

The only logical reply to such nonsense is to immediately strike the person in the face and then ask them, "Why didn't you have a cop stop me from doing that?"

In 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, Preside nt of the United States.

In 1963 a radical left wing communist, Lee Harvey Oswald, shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.

In 1975 a two wing radical Democrats fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States in separate acts of mental illness.

In 1981 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan.

In 1984 James Huberty a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.

In 1986 Patrick Sherril a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.

In 1990 James Pough a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.

In 1991 George Hennard a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 23 people in a Lubys cafeteria.

In 1995 James Daniel Simpson a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.

In 1999 Larry Asbrook a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 8 people at a church service.

In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.

In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung - Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech .

March 2010: John Patrick Bedell shot two Pentagon security. A right-wing extremist, media asked? (A registered Democrat and 9/11 Truther.)

In 2011 a mentally ill, registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The pot smoking Loughner killed 6 and wounded 18 in another liberal shooting tragedy.

In 2011 another mentally ill and registered Democrat named James Holmes went into a Colorado movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.

In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.

On September 16 2013, Aaron Alexis another pyscho Democrat killer slaughtered 12 innocents at the US Navy Yard. Alexis before his slaughter of innocents Navy Yard gunman Aaron Alexis had complained his brain had been targeted by low-frequency waves weeks before the slaughter.

12/14/2013 Karl Pierson entered Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Co. armed with a shotgun with intent to kill one of his teachers. He shot Claire Davis, a senior, @Arapahoe High in the head. Yes, Pierson is/was another mentally ill liberal punk.

April 2014 Mohammed Whitaker arraigned on 18 felony charges in series of highway shootings in Kansas. Mohammed appears to be another SOB, aka Son Of Obama..

We could go on, but you get the point, even if the media and the anti gun pyschos in Congress do not.

Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats, AKA, the mentally ill having guns or being around them.

No NRA members, No Tea Party members, or No Republican conservatives are/were involved.

Political correctness and leftist policies are to blame in these mass shootings:

If Seung-Hui Cho had been institutionalized for mental illness, 32 people would still be alive at Virginia Tech.

If Jared Loughner had been institutionalized, 6 would be alive in Tucson.

If James Holmes had been institutionalized, 12 lives spared in Aurora, CO.

If Adam Lanza had been institutionalized, 26 would still live in Newtown, CT.

If Nidal Hasan had been properly reported, investigated, and discharged from the Army, and institutionalized, 13 would not have died at Ft. Hood.

If we really want to improve safety, keep criminals in jail, terrorists out of the U.S., and people who are mentally ill/deranged in institutions.

Again, It should be illegal for any Democrats to own guns or be around them.
