And by “you”, I mean “everyone”.
Of late, I have not been wasting my time with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Ownership; after all, what kind of impact can a blatantly bigoted, anti-rights organization and its all-of-four bigoted, intolerant, narrow-minded, antagonistic, hateful members make except cyberstalking, bullying, and threatening pro-rights activists? The dustbin of history does not wait for them – it has already gathered them up and disposed of them, despite their [...]
To provide a bit of a humorous counterpoint to the previous post, do the failures known as the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership or the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Ownership have anything that TripAdvisor could actually rate?
Because the National Rifle Association does:
The Certificate of Excellence honors business that consistently earn top ratings from TripAdvisor travelers.
With a rating of 4.5, National Firearms Museum has earned a place among [...]
Say, for the sake of argument, that you are in charge of a fairly small, unpopular non-profit organization that has dedicated itself to fighting against and with a massively larger organization on the other side of your ideological fence. Say you have been faced with a series of major and minor defeats across the country – both in courts and in legislatures – and say that the preponderance of public opinion is slowly turning against [...]
The only (and I do mean only) good part about gut-reaming stomach bugs is that you can come home early from work. On one of the busiest days I have ever had at my current job. Before the second-busiest week. *sigh*
Anywise, on that happy note, I will leave you with this article questioning why the Brady Campaign, Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and all the rest of the anti-rights organizations have been quiet [...]
I am sure I have written about this in the past, but I continue to be astonished at how anti-rights cultists‘ brains work… or, for the most part, do not work.
For instance, by now, most of my readers are probably aware of the unfortunate case wherein George Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin; however, are you aware that anti-rights organizations like the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence are actively encouraging vigilante violence against George [...]
A little over a month ago, I made the following comment in response to the "gun violence" candle-light vigils anti-rights cultists held and attended:
One interesting side-effect from not making this distinction is that by holding their candle-light vigils for “victims of ‘gun violence’”, the Brady Campaign and their sycophants are, by definition, memorializing those murderers, rapists, thieves, muggers, robbers, home-invaders, and other scumbags who were shot down in self-defense by their intended victims, [...]
By now, regular readers of my weblog should be familiar with the name “Baldr Odinson” – that spineless, dishonest, cowardly troll who so very much hates it when his own methodologies and tricks are used against him (speaking of, I need to put his poll back up at some point). Regular readers of the pro-rights community would also be aware that Baldr Odinson condoned, if not outright supported, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s vicious, [...]
Why do "gun control" extremists hate women? Hold that question – we will come back to it.
I have to admit, the color pink does nothing for me. This is not some sexist statement; the color just has no particular attraction for me, and its extreme overuse by Hollywood socialites has all but soured me on the entire concept.
Furthermore, Better Half and I are both somewhat disheartened by firearm and firearm accessory [...]
Oh, look, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence is intentionally violating a photographer’s copyright.
Color me surprised.
No, not really. "Gun control" extremist organizations have a long-standing history of violating copyrights in their unending crusade to demonize and dehumanize firearm owners and carriers, which bring us back to an interesting point that comes up time and time again: if you do not respect one individual right – such as the right to self-defense [...]
Regular – or, hell, even irregular – readers of this weblog are probably more than familiar with my rebranding of "gun control" supporters as "anti-rights cultists" but go ahead and slide back there to re-read that particular post to get everyone back on the same page.
All good? Great.
So, really, that was just an exercise in me stretching the definitions of a few words in order to cast my opponents in a [...]
Not to turn this into a measuring contest, but remind me again how much money the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Ownership, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership, and the Violence Policy Center Facilitators have donated to Soldiers’ Angels, or any organizations like them?
… Just wonderin’. I mean, it is not like the copious quantities of money they are getting from the Joyce Foundation is going to anything actually useful…
A random thought occurred to me yesterday as I drove past Blacksburg, VA in the torrential downpour blanketing the East Coast…
The “gun control” / anti-rights movement is largely defined – and hamstrung – by their logical fallacies, but one they keep coming back to again and again like a dog returning to its own vomit is that of the appeal to popularity – anti-rights cultists consistently and repeatedly adopt the position that because [...]
Being somewhat goofy looking, having a non-symmetrical face, possessing the stereotypical pasty-whiteness of my ethnic background, and so forth, I generally try to refrain from making fun of people for the way they look.
The way they dress, however? Well, that is entirely a matter of choice, and while I have no shortage of appreciation for outlandish styles and resurrected trends (well, except anything from the ’70s), even I have to draw the line [...]
Courtesy of AuricTech, and putting his own words into action, we have what is probably the most-perfect graphic documenting the recent absurd, and hilarious, display of incompetence on the part of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence:
The giggles from resulting from this gaffe on their part are going to be long-lasting and hearty, trust me…
To keep up with the “maybe I should write new posts today” theme, does everyone remember how Ladd Everitt got the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s Twitter feed shut down for harassing, bullying, abusing, trying to intimidate, and “outing” pro-rights webloggers? That was a pretty impressive display of incompetence, right?
Well, how incompetent would you have to be to allow the domain registration for the CSGV’s webpage to expire? Pretty damned incompetent:
Well, this is a first for my humble little weblog:
Yup, that (item number 8, specifically) is the picture of the email I sent to Twitter regarding the CSGV’s harassment, intimidation, and "outing" of pro-rights webloggers being used as a source for the Wikipedia page on the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.
Long-time readers will be familiar with my remarkably dim view of Wikipedia, but I am fairly certain this marks the [...]
Why do I so adamantly fight “gun control” supporters almost whenever and wherever possible, even when they harass me and implicitly threaten my family and me?
Why have I taken to calling those individuals “anti-rights cultists”?
Conveniently enough, those two questions have the same answer, provided in a as he quotes from Guns, Democracy, and the Insurrectionist Idea*:
Recognize Insurrectionism as a threat to the entire progressive movement. Too many political progressives [...]
