I will admit that it is something of a warped tradition, but a gunblogger has never really "arrived" until they have been cyberstalked and harassed by Guy Cabot (aka "JadeGold") and his facilitator, Michael Bonomo (aka "mikeb302000"). Thankfully, Squeaky has the exactly correct attitude about the whole thing; in short, "piss off".
The post from Bonomo’s all-but-abandoned weblog that Squeaky highlights (she does not link to it, and neither will I), is just chock-a-block full of hilarity, though:
It’s a long read and pretty tough slogging. The bottomline [sic] is this is a person who has a smorgasbord of troubles–financial, employment, personal, health (physical and mental), etc.
Frankly, this is not a person who should be around firearms. Not just for her own safety, but for others’.
She seems to be buddys [sic] with many gunbloggers; why aren’t they suggesting she give up the guns?
I cannot say as though I know a darned thing about her financial or employment situation, but good ol’ Joan Peterson more than fits the bill about "personal, health (physical and mental)" troubles, and a potential threat to herself and others. But I will let you in on a cute little secret that her anti-rights cultist buddies want to keep on the "down low" – Joan Peterson owns firearms. She and her husband own an indeterminate number of high-powered sniper rifles… *cough*… excuse me, "hunting rifles" possibly with a street sweeper or two… *cough*… shotgun thrown into the mix.
However, Joan Peterson also has some massive cognitive failures significantly and detrimentally affecting her life, possibly including her apparent inability to come to terms with her sister’s murder by that sister’s mentally unbalanced husband, and likewise including her irrational and illogical cult-like beliefs that law-abiding American citizens are to blame for that death. And yet the "gun control" extremists she works with, communications with, and collaborates with have never seen fit to stage an "intervention" for her, despite their public belief that people with "mental troubles" should not possess firearms.
I wonder why that is?
Moving right along, why do these "gun control" supporters hate rape victims? Squeaky has, unfortunately, been there and done that, and, yes, she has the emotional, psychological, and physical scars to go along with that journey. And yet these vicious anti-rights cultists single her out for blatant, arbitrary abrogation of her Constitutionally-protected individual rights.
How strange. In the "gun control" world, "victims" – even fabricated not-really-victims like Joan Peterson, who is as much a "victim" of "gun violence" as I am a "victim" of Alzheimer’s – are treated as inviolate, untouchable, irreproachable saints. But I forget – unless there was as gun involved, the anti-rights cultists do not care.
Finally, why do "gun control" extremists hate women? Females are, on average, smaller, lighter, and weaker than their male counterparts, and are thus already at a rather significant disadvantage when it comes to self-defense. Firearms, given their easy-to-operate nature, are almost universally usable by people of all sorts of different sizes and strengths (depending on the specific caliber and design of the firearm in question), and thus allow the weak to level the playing field against any stronger aggressor that may attack them. Unfortunately, it could be argued that Squeaky has the double-whammy of being both female and afflicted with a few physically weakening diseases, so easy-to-use force-multiplying tools are essential when it comes to keeping herself from being victimized again.
And here these people want to render her defenseless precisely because of those ailments. If that is not indicative of the Catch 22 mentality of anti-rights cultists*, I do not know what is.
In the end, mikeb302000 and jadegold are naught but vicious, vindictive, and violent trolls that are better ignored than not, but their actions and words occasionally serve to illustrate the irrationality and social disconnect that most "gun control" extremists suffer from. One can only hope they get the help they so obviously need before they do something they might come to regret.
(* – Just get them started on "psychological testing" for firearm ownership. Obviously, if you want to own a firearm, there is something psychologically wrong with you, so you are unfit to own one… Oops.)
