A cretin opened fire at a church over the weekend – and fire was returned. Not by armed government workers, but by armed citizens. While the cretin did kill two people, fewer people were killed than would have been the case had the citizens within the church relied upon AGWs to “protect” them.
People like Governor Coonman of Virginia – and the CNN reporters, who headlined the story to focus on the “gun violence” rather than the guns which saved the lives of those who were the targets of violence – insolently demand that citizens be placed at the mercy of armed cretins.
Which is another way of saying that the lives of citizens don’t matter. Let them wait – cower – and hope for the best.
Never forget that the Coonman (and his allies, including the odious Michael Bloomberg) value their lives very much. Which is why they are surrounded by men with guns, to protect their lives.
Our lives, on the other hand . . .
The effrontery of this is halting.
If the Coonman, et al, really do believe that guns are the problem then let them lead the way and surrender theirs. In fact, they are like the “climate crisis” actors who posture about the need for us to make “wrenching changes” to our lives. But they themselves live in 10,000 square foot mansions, drive (or are driven in) 15 MPG SUVs, own private jets, etc.
CNN, et al will of course downplay the role of self-defense in this incident – as they downplay all incidents of defensive use of firearms by citizens. Because they believe that citizens shouldn’t be armed, for self-defense or any other reason.
That is the exclusive privilege of the nomenklatura – the political class and the major media class, which serves as a kind of Greek Chorus for the political class. They regard us as stupid animals – and themselves masters of the feed lot.
