Liberals Panic As They
Lose the Gun Narrative

Townhall, by Kurt Schlichter

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 12/26/2012 7:43:54 PM

When you argue for a living, you can tell how an argument is going for you. The evidence and my gut both tell me that the liberals have lost control of the gun control narrative. Not for lack of trying – it was almost as if they were poised to leap into action across the political, media and cultural spectrum the second the next semi-human creep shot up another “gun free zone.” This was their big opening to shift the debate and now it’s closing. They’ve lost, and they are going nuts.

Comments:
Yessss! Read the anecdotes at the end about the liberal L.A. ladies.

Wow the LA ladies comments are awesome. I think it´s one of those things you get at a gut level. If you have the inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, you have the inalienable right to protect those freedoms.

The liberals are all alike; if they do not want to do something, then by damn no one else should do it either. Most Hollywood liberals have armed guards who carry real guns, but they do not want you to own a gun. 0bama wants "to get serious about gun control," but he sends his daughters to a very expensive private school that employs several armed guards .... who are armed with REAL guns. Let´s be honest about this debate.

Gun free zones have worked out so well in colleges, malls, high schools and now firest grade classes that lieberals want everyone to live in one. People with such little ability for rational thought (lieberalls) are more the problem than the actual perpetrators as they set the stage for disaster and learn not from experience.

That´s a new bill being proposed to charge ~$50/year to get a permit to buy ammunition in CA.
IF it passes who needs more reason to leave here?
I don´t.
My plans are well along toward going.

This is a good thing to read in a time when most of the news is bad.
I´m still not ready to stand down though. The door may be strong enough to hold the wolf back this time, but the wolf is still out there.

Maintain vigilance. These Libtard Cockroaches are worse than their namesakes. Just when you think the threat is eliminated, one or two more sneak out from the woodwork to do their damage.

Liberals know (instinctively, bringing on self hatred) that they are unable to articulate a scenario whereby any one or more gun laws would have save those innocent little angels from the utterly puny, snot-swigging demon who killed them, one trigger pull at a time.

No, they only wish that a unicorn could have swooped in and saved those beautiful, God-loved children, with police (yes, give them credit nonetheless) a mere 20 minutes from the scene.

That is what liberals instinctively know -- but are unwilling to acknowledge -- so they rage.

The gun banners of the MSM have no problems stepping on the 1st Amendment rights of talk radio, the conservative blogosphere, and real Christians who want to follow Jesus´ rules like not killing babies. That they attack the 2nd Amendment is without question, they also attack the 5th amendment because they want to take private property.

BTW, they also deceive because their solutions would not stop a determined killer from slaughtering defenseless children.

The simple minded belief that laws can prevent horrid acts by deranged individuals is another example of the idiocy that comes with worship of the State.

Nothing new there. What "narrative" have liberals ever won? The fact that they´ve worsened every societal problem or dysfunction that they´ve ever tried to address doesn´t seem to discourage them in the least.

Having said that, this is one Rubican that they had better not cross. We´re playing for keeps this time.

BTW, if you´re on Twitter and not following Kurt, you should be.

by the way re the quote from EJ Dionne that NRA remarks are supposedly obscene - has anybody else noticed that the Donks now use the word obscene for everything except obscenity? I think we use a lot of words they wish they were allowed to use. So they just misuse them.

Every two years all the Congressional representatives, and 1/3 of the Senate, must face an election to keep their jobs. Many of those folks are Democrats who represent States where after you vote for any sort of a firearms ban you become unelectable.

I believe that the Democrats have to defend 14 Senate seats next time around, and you can bet that a bunch of those seats are in States that do not favor more gun control. If those Democrats vote for gun control, the chances are good that the Republicans could become the majority in the Senate after the next election, and if the Republicans also maintain their majority in the House of Representatives, Obama will have a two year lame duck period where he will not get anything through the Congress. You better believe that the Democrats remember what happened to them the last time they pushed gun control.

What the Congress should do is make it harder for dangerous mentally ill people to get their hands on any class of firearms as that´s where the problem lies.

Banning guns would result in the underground selling the guns. It´s supply and demand. And that would empower the gangs even more, and more people would be shot down, gang style. More politicians and cops and judges on the mob payroll. If guns are banned from the legal economy, the country would become more violent.

The concept of foreseeability in lawsuits has been watered down to the point where your liability ca nbe based on pure lunacy."They should have known" is a favorite among class action shakedown trial lawyers boards.

A lawyer in a diaper could run with the foreseeability in the Sandy Hook shootings putting the town at risk for huge payouts.They would be un insurable after that.

This is what´s going to drive decisions on security guards so it´s the left defeating itself.

Our rights were not granted by Congress. God granted them to us. The Founding Fathers constantly invoked God while preparing and writing the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. No one should be allowed to modify or limit these rights. No metrosexual TV news show host, no mayor of Boston or New York, no Senator from California or New York, no Vice President from Delaware. These individuals will soon pass from the American scene, however, our God-given rights will never vanish as long as America exists. These rights are worth fighting and dying for.

Those hundreds and hundreds of men, women and children in Mexico have died in vain from the guns obama sold to the mexican drug cartels....

That is how a liberal would think as obama and his eggheads came up with the idea of MURDERING as many people as possible as an excuse to take guns away from everyone - except themselves of course.

Good points all, especially #8, 12, and 19. Would like to know what further laws would prevent deranged individuals from acquiring guns, though. Would people need to go through a battery of government shrink-administered tests??? That´ll do ´er!

If banks were really smart, they would put up signs that said "No bank robbery allowed at this bank. Robbers go away."

Homes could have signs that said: "No home invasions, burglary, theft, rape or assault allowed here. Go away or we´ll call the police. They will be here in 15 or 20 minutes so you better watch out."

This should work out just fine. Don´t worry about anything. We have laws to stop bad people. You´re really not shot dead, you just think you are. Works every time.

The war on standards
comes to college debate
Powerline, by John Hinderaker    Original Article

Paul has been writing about the war on standards in various aspects of our society, generally as a means of advancing the interests of minorities (or purporting to advance them, anyway). Now it appears that the decline of standards–indeed, the abolition of any standards at all–has come to the world of college debate. The Atlantic reports: These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national

What Really Happened at the Bay of Pigs

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea´s Heartbreak Ridge. But

Federal Land as a Percentage

The government has no business owning (or administering) all of this land. I am willing to concede federal courthouses and even the national parks to the feds, (even though some of the parks were created as a result of brutal land grabs. Shenandoah National Park which I look out at as I write this is an example.) but why is practically all of the far West run by the Federal Government? Here’s another thing I’ll concede. The feds get a few hundred God forsaken square miles in the northern Nevada desert to do nuclear testing and to dump nuclear fuel. Beyond that? People should own this land.

Capitalism and the Dalai Lama

What can Washington, D.C., learn from a Buddhist monk? In early 2013, I traveled with two colleagues to Dharamsala, India, to meet with the Dalai Lama. (Snip) That same duality was on display in February when the Dalai Lama joined atwo-day summit at my institution, the American Enterprise Institute. At first, his visit caused confusion. Some people couldn’t imagine why he would visit us; as Vanity Fair asked in a headline, “Why Was the Dalai Lama Hanging Out with the Right-Wing American Enterprise Institute?” There was no dissonance, though, because the Dalai Lama’s teaching defies freighted ideological labels.

Here´s How Long That Teen Would Have

Oh, Portland. A teenager urinated into one of the city’s drinking water reservoirs the other day. That’s gross, sure, and aggravating—what a brat! But in one of the most spectacularly stupid decisions in years, the city is going to drain the reservoir. (Snip) But is it possible to calculate precisely how illogical Portland’s decision is? Let’s try to put some numbers on it. Several smart people on Twitter quickly did the math and figured that a typical urination of about 1/8 gallon in a reservoir of 38 million gallons amounts to a concentration of 3 parts per billion.

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can. The “third ear” we develop during training – the one that catches meaningful turns of phrase or attempts to be evasive – can’t be left at the office door entirely. When I had dinner with Lou and Linda Pelletier and three of their four daughters, Jennifer, Jessica and Julia, a few nights ago in Massachusetts, I wasn’t trying to evaluate them. They aren’t my patients. But I was listening for discordant psychological

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
