According to westernjournalism.com, the Fort Hood, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Colorado Theater, and Connecticut shooters were all registered Democrats. (Eric Harris and Derrick Klebold, the Columbine shooters, were too young to vote, however both sets of parents were registered Democrats).
Perhaps the overwhelming majority of gun-grabbing Democrats are merely projecting when they mistrust others with weapons. They can’t be trusted, and therefore do not trust others. After all, leftist political philosophy is that of using brute force extortion and coercion to extract unearned wealth, power, and prestige via the state’s guns. It’s not a giant leap, psychologically speaking, to actually shoot your fellow human beings, when you’ve been conditioned and taught to believe that coercion and outright violence is an acceptable means to deal with your fellow human beings.
As far as the gun-grabbing goes, it makes sense, when your livelihood depends on the state having a monopoly on force in order to extort wealth from producers, that you do not want them armed. I mean… anyone with half a brain can see the logical connection there. You vote for the state to re-distribute people’s wealth and time and effort to you by force(guns), so naturally you would prefer if those people were not armed.
“According to the appeals court, the DEA followed its own rules–five in all–when it claimed that petitioners for rescheduling marijuana had failed to provide ‘adequate and well-controlled studies proving efficacy’.” But the petitioners cited more than 200 peer-reviewed published studies demonstrating marijuana’s efficacy for various medical uses.
This is not about marijuana, and it’s definitely not about the medical uses of marijuana. It’s a larger issue, one that should concern everyone, whether you use marijuana or not — are you free to make decisions about your health for yourself, or are you too stupid and incapable of making these decisions?? We know what the government thinks of you.
I’m gonna go with Friedrich on this one. Seems like Selma’s mindlessly following the feminist paradigm to blame men for all the world’s ills. She probably doesn’t realize, however, that the center for disease control and prevention released a study showing that up to 70% of domestic violence is initiated by women in reciprocal-violence relationships, and up to 70% of the time with couples where only one partner is violent or abusive. I guess the joke’s on her.

“He will have to learn, I know, that all men are not just, all men are not true. But teach him also that for every scoundrel there is a hero; that for every selfish Politician, there is a dedicated leader… Teach him for every enemy there is a friend, Steer him away from envy, if you can, teach him the secret of quiet laughter. Let him learn early that the bullies are the easiest to lick… Teach him, if you can, the wonder of books… But also give him quiet time to ponder the eternal mystery of birds in the sky, bees in the sun, and the flowers on a green hillside. In the school teach him it is far honourable to fail than to cheat… Teach him to have faith in his own ideas, even if everyone tells him they are wrong… Teach him to be gentle with gentle people, and tough with the tough. Try to give my son the strength not to follow the crowd when everyone is getting on the band wagon… Teach him to listen to all men… but teach him also to filter all he hears on a screen of truth, and take only the good that comes through. Teach him if you can, how to laugh when he is sad… Teach him there is no shame in tears, Teach him to scoff at cynics and to beware of too much sweetness… Teach him to sell his brawn and brain to the highest bidders but never to put a price-tag on his heart and soul. Teach him to close his ears to a howling mob and to stand and fight if he thinks he’s right. Treat him gently, but do not cuddle him, because only the test of fire makes fine steel. Let him have the courage to be impatient… let him have the patience to be brave. Teach him always to have sublime faith in himself, because then he will have sublime faith in mankind. This is a big order, but see what you can do… He is such a fine little fellow, my son!” ~ Abraham Lincoln
