Let us speak of “goon violence,” not gun violence, I urged earlier this month in “Gun Violence’? No! Goon Violence” (9/4/2015).
So the goon du jure is Chris Harper Mercer, 26 (no relation).
He shot up a college, in Roseburg, Oregon, killing 10 people and wounding seven.
Initially, the moron media made a song-and dance of not reporting the culprit’s name. Grandiosely, The Kelly File announced its policy of keeping viewers in the dark for their own good, I suppose. They forget that as news media, their mandate is to report the news, not babysit the public or grandstand. That’s the only news I have for you. Otherwise, everything is as it always is:
Obama cried foul about the 2nd Amendment. The BBC bellyached about your right to defend yourself, because in their crap country, Britain, you go to jail if you fail to offer a cuppa to your assailant.
British citizens seeking advice on what’s legal to use for self-defense found some answers at www.askthe.police.uk, a website sponsored and operated by the government’s Police National Legal Database.
Question 589: Are there any legal self-defence products that I can buy?
Answer: The only fully legal self-defence product … is a rape alarm.
There may be other products, according to the website, but they haven’t been fully tested and “if you purchase one you must be aware … there is always the possibility that you will arrested and detained until the product, its contents and legality, can be verified.”
Who’re the Brits calling primitive atavists!!!!
Your moment of zen:
“Guns are not the root cause of man’s evil actions. Neither are the multiplying categories in the psychiatric Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Evil is part of the human condition, always has been, always will be. Evil can’t be wished away, treated away, medicated away or legislated away. Evil is here to stay. Bad people do bad things. Deal, as they say in the hood.”—Excerpted from “Gun Violence’? No! Goon Violence” (9/4/2015).
