Professional doodlers lead the “NRA=Sniper”campaign

Believe it or not, this one’s from one of Cuba’s non-imprisoned political commentators:

Stalin himself couldn’t have rousted his propagandists faster than these mono-thought “artists” have swung into action. This one’s gonna be rough.

The sniper picked one of the states where that's least likely to happen, thanks to Maryland's tough anti gun laws.

Rough? ...it is going to be almost impossible.

At this point, the best outcome (**after** they catch and kill this killer) is for it to have been a terrorist and/or certified looney tune with a Ruger No. 1* single shot rifle, and that he tried repeatedly to buy it at gun shops and gun shows, but was turned down in 1998-1999, so he finally had to steal the rifle.

At least then we could ask why the Clintoon administration failed to follow-up and arrest the guy back in 98-99.

*Nothing against Ruger or their fine firearms (I own stock RGR), but it is the least threatening (in liberal minds) break-open single shot action I could think of.

BTW, RGR is a really good stock, and SMWS (Smith & Wesson) is turning out to be a decent one also.

He ain't shooting up Texas or the South Bronx, of course.

He knows, alot better than these cartoonists, where gun control has been "successful."

That's right. I have a Life patch on one side of the front of my jacket and a Harley eagle on the other. I haven't experienced the regular evil stares since '95-97.

Of course, the anti-gun crowd's response to everything is more gun control. Even in Great Britian where guns in the hands of private citizens are virtually 100% banned, they STILL insist that the problem is NOT ENOUGH GUN CONTROL!

Who wants to bet against the thought that the perp(s) will be:

1. A professional terrorist of some Anti-american persuasion.
2. A garden variety looney toon hung up on Hollywood movies
3. A teenager on withdrawal from some anti-depressant drug.

We have victims of sniper shootings in areas where there are STRICT gun laws...

Sounds like we should arm the citizens...case closed.

Yep. Just like the libs were successful in characterizing semiautomatic rifles as "assault rifle", they will now try to characterize bolt action rifles as "sniper rifles."

Everyone!

Please save complete copies of the newspapers where these hate-mongering cartoons appear! Instead of "hoping," I'm starting to do the research to file a series of defamation lawsuits against Daryl Cagle, Slate, the Arizona Republic, and whoever else publishes this crap, as an NRA member.

According to this page, one of the common-law categories of defamatory words is to "accuse another of associating with criminals or others of unsavory character."

If you want to stay in touch with me on this, please e-mail or FreepMail me - maybe we can make it a class-action lawsuit of NRA members. It's time these people were brought to justice.

Do you think it's time for the NRA and its compadres to respond?

I know I'm speaking to the choir...but to equate criminal behaviour with law abiding citizens is SICK. It's like saying "Well, he's a man, he must have did it"..

how many of those op-ed articles are men?

Another cutting-edge, original-thinker weighs in.

They're like carrion-sniffing vultures.

You'd think one of them might have the intellectual curiousity to ask himself why this person is shooting up one of the least armed sections of the nation.

The gun-toters in Montana aren't under seige.

If the NRA won't respond with a defamation lawsuit as an organization, I plan to do whatever I can to respond myself. I'm sick and tired of being the editorial cartoonist's whipping boy as an NRA member, and I'm not going to put up with it anymore. I've never filed a lawsuit before, so heck, it might be a good learning experience.

Thanks for the post. This defamation is infuriating. Legal gun owners and NRA members (who can't be felons) are the discriminated "minorities" of the 21st Century. We need a civil rights movement.

I got into a big debate with a couple of freshmen in college outside the nra convention when it was in kcmo. They got on tv later of course.

They acted like the NRA members were nothing but "hunters". I told them that the nra members are their teachers, neighbors, pastors, ministers, uncles, brothers, cousins, retired neighborhood folks..their mouths just dropped.

So far, we don't know that any bystander was in a position to do anything before or after any of the shots.

That could change with the next attempt, and I'd rather that citizen be armed with more than an umbrella.

The fact that the shooter knows that it is unlikely that he will be stumbled upon by an armed citizen in these suburbs might be exactly why this location was chosen.

How would additional gun laws have prevented any of these deaths? Do you think the shooter could actually be a law-abiding citizen, who is only exploiting some overlooked loophole in our "don't murder" laws?

These are such obvious questions with obvious answers. It amazes me how blind the gun control crowd is. Or worse, they are pushing another agenda.

I've seen this point made on several of these sniper threads. He is shooting in an area where it is very unlikely that he might be shot himself.

I told my boss yesterday, try that crap in Tuscaloosa AL or Austin TX and the tree blinds start going up in neighborhoods after the second or third shot. An armed and alert citizenry would put a stop to this very quickly. The leftist cartoonists have it exactly backward (as usual). If there were more NRA members in the MD-DC-DE-VA area the citizens could put a stop to this much easier than the armed react-after-the-fact report-takers (police).

I dunno, all those unarmed people with the target rings painted on them seems right on to me. The only inaccurate part of that is one, is that they'd probably be hugging the NRA guy/rifleman and/or trying to hide behind him.

Somebody, with talent unlike moi, should make up a 3 or 4 panel cartoon with people coming into a gun shop with the target's on, then leaving with guns, no target and a big predatory grin on their faces as they leave.

How would any of the victims or bystanders prevented anything if they were armed? Or how would they have stopped the sniper in the first place if they were armed?

They could have prevented the next shooting. Enough people apparently heard and saw today's shooting that had several of them been armed, the police at least would have been looking for a vehicle with holes in it. That would have been a bit tougher to explain away, don't you think. Best case would have been actually getting one or more of the perps. That's the way the Israelies handle Pali snipers. The Israelies' getting a Pali sniper isn't spectacular or unusual enough to make the newspaper, probably not even in Israel, except maybe on page B-43.

I'm stating that in an anti gun state, the sniper doesn't have to worry too much about that part in his planning. He only has to concern himself with the possibility of police stopping him, not armed citizens.

Apparently, when Go Dub Go asks such rhetorical questions at his circle-jerk, wine-and-brie, liberal get-togethers, the other participants just ooooh and aaaaah and label him "the smart one."

But when his oh-so-wise trite platitudes are challenged, he simply tucks his tail between his legs and torricellis away.

I like the first one. Note the armed man is the one walking around WITHOUT a target on his chest. The other main point of interest is that the targets are looking nervously at a gun pointed AWAY from them. A brilliant summing up of certain people's attitudes toward law-abiding gun owners, symbolized by the man with the NRA button.

Well, we've been predicting this for some time now, and it's now happening. Amazing how this coincides with the anti-.50 cal hysteria, the impending sunset of the '94 Crime Bill's restrictions, and even a possible ban on all "hunting ammo" in Los Angeles, isn't it? I'm not saying this is somehow orchestrated by the left (even I don't think they'd stoop to that level to push their tyranny through), but damn if they're not going to ride this wave for all it's worth.

That said, I'd almost be willing to let Congress pass all the stupid, wacko gun bans they want...provided they make the likes of Michael Moore, Rosie, Sarah Brady, the multitude of Hollyweird types, and Chuckie Schumer knock on doors and try to collect the newly-banned firearms. Let 'em put their money where their big, fat, festering, slimy mouths are. You want 'em ? Come get 'em...

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

the sniper's target obviously can't stop the attack. The point is that an armed citizen nearby may stop the sniper after the rifle goes "boom" and the sniper is trying to escape. Sooner or later the sniper's escape route is going to cross the path of a bird watcher or landscaper or surveyor etc.

I'll try to get a paper copy, it was certainly published online as you can see. I'd love to see these hate mongers punished but somehow I doubt they will ever suffer a loss in court. As an NRA member, it makes me mad as hell!

The BEST WAY we can fight these losers is to TAKE BACK THE SENATE IN NOVEMBER, then we can light some real fires under their asses.

In any given instance they might or might not. But as a matter of probabilities the existence of an armed populace raises the ante enought to be a significant deterrent.

It is just like seat belts. In a particular accident they might or might not save your life. There are rare incidents where they are actually harmful. But when you look at a large number of accidents seat belts are very effective in preventing injury.

Why the general populace and the media can understand this principle when applied in some areas, but refuses to accept reality in other areas is a mystery to me.
