BenjaminV: @linoge_wotc @barronbarnett you gun nuts are proving my point. I knew you’d put your precious 2nd amendment before common sense.
BenjaminV: @linoge_wotc @gunsncoasters Enjoy Tennessee. It’s the home of our best and brightest. Oh wait.
(Please note that the bulked screencap is arranged in top-last chronological order, and the text is top-first.)
If you look carefully at the blockquote above, you will see that three quotes from BenjaminV lack hyperlinks to their Twitter records; this is not an oversight on my part, instead, it would appear as though BenjaminV decided to try to shove those comments down a Memory Hole by deleting them from Twitter. Unfortunately for him, I leave my home computer running nearly all the time, and as long as it is up, TweetDeck is online and archiving everything it sees, including tweets with my username in them.
So why did he try to take the coward’s escape and strike his comments – comments he obviously ardently believed in when the wrote them – from the record? Maybe he realized they might damage his fledgling design business. Maybe he lacks the courage to stand by his convictions. Maybe he realized how reprehensible those comments were, but is so spinally deficient he cannot apologize for them. One thing is for certain: this attempt at rewriting history is a systemic deficiency of anti-rights cultists like BenjaminV there, and should always be kept in mind while dealing with them; if you want anything for future records, take screencaps (I recommend WebShot) or have some kind of logging software, and be ready to use it if you need to.
Regarding BenjaminV’s aborted attempts at points, I only need to say that, once again, Virginia Tech is a prime example of the failure of “gun control” and the pointless nature of “gun free zones”, and that “common sense” is, at best, a lousy reason to abridge the rights of law-abiding citizens (and, yes, the Constitution does take priority over it, thank you for noticing), and, at worst, a base and irresponsible logical fallacy not even worthy of consideration. The remainder of his tweets consist of pointless, immature personal attacks, so there is no point in addressing them here.
I wonder when “gun control” extremists like BenjaminV there will realize that “The Internet Never Forgets”… probably about the same time he starts presenting rational, logical arguments based off historical data, I suppose.
