allow me to introduce you to adam mermer

According to his Facebook page and now-closed Twitter account, Adam Mermer is 42 years old, a present resident of Boston, Massachusetts, and unsurprisingly single.  Predictably, he somewhat vociferously supports the Patriots, though I do not at all understand his liking of Ayn Rand and Atlas Shrugged.  He used to work at Burque Jewelers a few years ago (which he apparently inherited from his father – only notable on account of how happy he seems to not work there any more), and, oh, by the way, he wants to murder you. 

I wish I were joking. 

AdamMermerExecutionHow’s this? 

Gun owners are a deadly threat to public safety and their execution should be legal. 

… and …

AdamMermerExecution3Once again.  Gun owners demonstrate that they are a mortal danger to society and their execution is an imperative. 

Do not bother looking for the [email protected] Twitter account – the coward shut it down once he realized people were screencapturing his tweets and recording them for posterity.  Unfortunately, he somewhat neglected to remember to appropriately protect his Facebook account… 

AdamMermerScumOnce again. If you support the arming of the general population, you are scum and deserve no mercy for your threats against public safety and common decency.

Do you defend Constitutionally-protected human rights?  Adam Mermer believes you are “scum” and “threatening” people. 

AdamMermerCapitalPunishmentYet another reason that firearms should ALWAYS be locked away and their possession heavily regulated.

As well as further proof that those who like guns are dangerous psychopaths deserving of swift and harsh punishment.

Preferably the "capital" kind.

Do you like a hobby that Adam Mermer does not like?  Well, you should be punished, and preferably murdered by your government. 

AdamMermerIllegalJust curious.

Doesn’t the notion that we need more guns to protect us from people with guns seem completely stupid?

Ah! That’s because pro gun people are basically retarded psychopaths

Not one single person has provided a logical counter as to why firearms should be allowed in general circulation or why illegal possessors should be allowed to live. Or why ALL firearms shouldn’t be made illegal.

Do you own an inanimate lump of metal illegally?  Adam Mermer thinks you should be murdered.  Of course, he thinks it should be illegal to own all inanimate lumps of metal of a certain configuration, so he wants to murder a lot of people. 

AdamMermerMolonLabeCan someone explain why "Molon Labe" isn’t considered a statement of terrorism and all who exclaim it to be jailed for inciting violence and treason?

It’s stating that they will murder police and soldiers. If that does t deserve placement in front of a firing squad or a seat in an electric chair, nothing does.

Do you express a willingness to defend your property, your rights, and your life from unjust and unconstitutional attacks?  Adam Mermer would like to put you at the head of the line for riding the lightning, even ahead of mass murderers and rapists. 

I confess to being easily amused at times, but it is just fascinating how Adam Mermer so vociferously claims to be anti-death and anti-violence and so forth, but then calls for outright murdering anyone who even so much as holds an opinion different than his own.  Just as some people do want to take your firearms from you – despite no shortage of claims to the contrary – some people really do want to murder you for the simple act of standing up for your rights. 

Why do I carry and own firearms?  People like Adam Mermer are just one of the many reasons. 

joe biden is an imbecile

A lot of people whinge about how useless Twitter is and what a waste of time it is, and, generally, they are probably right; however, personally, I have been using it as an exercise to try and condense my normal, verbose writing style, with occasional success. For example, I never would have written something nearly as concise as this on this weblog:

Apparently Vice President Joe Biden thinks women are too stupid to use a firearm liberals want to ban because it is too easy to use.

(Exact verbiage changed a little to help flow and remove hashtags.)

Sure, it may not be the most graceful of sentences, but I dare say it adequately sums up this bout of verbal diarrhea from Our Glorious Vice President:

If you want to protect yourself get a double barreled shotgun. Have the shells, a 12 gauge shotgun, and I promise you… I told my wife; we live in an area that’s wooded and it’s somewhat secluded. I said Jill, if there’s ever a problem just walk out on the balcony put that double barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. I promise you whoever is coming in is not going to… you don’t need an AR-15. It’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use and in fact you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun.

Of course, it is also worth noting that break-action 12-gauge shotguns have significantly stronger recoil than .223 rifles, warning shots are, by and large and possibly universally, illegal, discharging a firearm at a target without first identifying your target is inherently unsafe and can also lead to criminal charges, and discharging a firearm into the air is also generally illegal and patently unsafe.

In other words, Vice President Joe Biden is an ignorant, misogynistic imbecile, and in so being, he remains what he always was – assassination insurance for Our Glorious President.

lou gagliardi wants to kidnap your children

But she wants someone else to do it for her, so that is ok. 

Unfortunately, the following Twitter conversation will be somewhat disjointed and I will be unable to adequately link to all of the various tweets.  Why?  Because Lou Gagliardi is a spineless coward who, upon realizing what she said, Memory Hole’d the tweets I managed to keep screen captures of. 

Why did she delete these tweets?  Why do you think – because she knows just how reprehensible and disgusting they really are. 

In any case, we are jumping in mid-conversation, with: 

Linoge_WOTC:  According to #guncontrol #extremist @lougagliardi, I’m a terrorist for standing up for my human rights. If that’s not insanity…

lougagliardikidnapper1Lou Gagliardi:  #gunowner #terrorist @linoge_wotc thinks owning military grade weapon is a “human right” If he has children, they should be taken off him

Read that again, just to let it sink in.  Check out the screen capture if you do not believe my reprinting of it.  For the heinous “crime” of standing up for my human rights of self-preservation, self-defense, the ownership of private property, and simply being left alone to live my life in peace, Lou Gagliardi wants some nameless, faceless entity (otherwise known as “the federal government”, no doubt) to unjustly relieve me of my (non-existent) children without due process, a trial, or any other Constitutionally-protected rights observed. 

Wow.  Just.  Plain.  Wow. 

To begin with, as we pro-rights advocates have always maintained, if you cannot respect one Constitutionally-protected right, you cannot respect any of them.  As much as Lou Gagliardi absolutely despises the rights protected by the Second Amendment (which, by the way, does include the right to own “military grade weapons” – after all, the Founding Fathers had no problems with their citizenry owning cannon and warships, for heaven’s sake), she likewise hates the rights protected by the First and Fourth Amendments, and arguably the Ninth and Tenth as well. 

Moving on, Lou Gagliardi has, to put it simply, been losing her gos-se over my comment that she wants to kidnap the children of people who own AR-15s, and whatever-the-hell else she thinks qualifies as a “military grade weapon” (even though, obviously, AR-15s are not even used by the military).  Unfortunately for her, that is simply the way our representative-style government works.  If you call for the government to do X, and it actually does X, you share in the responsibility of that action being executed.  If you elect a representative who says he does X, and he actually goes and does X, you share in the responsibility of that action being executed.  This is part of the reason I am becoming a more and more staunch independent, and why I am having a harder and harder time voting for any incumbents whatsoever – I refuse to share in the dirt they have on their hands. 

Having armed men do something on your behalf simply does not keep your hands clean; this is actually one of the largest disconnects we rational pro-rights activists have with “gun control” extremists like Lou Gagliardi here.  They absolutely cannot tolerate the notion of private citizens keeping firearms for their own personal defense, but they have absolutely no problems calling… armed citizens who happen to have badges to come and use their firearms to defend them.  Helpful Hint: violence by proxy does not keep your hands clean. 

Addendum to Helpful Hint:  neither does kidnapping by proxy. 

Unfortunately, Lou Gagliardi was not content to simply leave it at that: 

Gun Rights Alert@linoge_wotc They’d have to go through me first. And the kids can take care of themselves, too. @lougagliardi pic.twitter.com/3iy2sncX

lougagliardikidnapper2Lou Gagliardi:  @GunRightsAlert @linoge_wotc this is exactly why they should be taking off of you. thank you for the evidence to prove my point. 

Incomprehensible grammar aside, Lou Gagliardi’s position is pretty clear – if you own “military grade weapon(s)” (which basically means whatever this ignorant imbecile says it means), your children should be forcibly removed from your protection. 

But Lou Gagliardi herself is not going to be doing the kidnapping… oh, no, she could not dream of getting her pretty little hands dirty like that.  Instead, she wants other people – other armed people, ironically enough – to do her dirty work for her… as if that will somehow keep those hands of hers clean. 

Newsflash: it will not. 

Secondary Newsflash:  attempting to forcibly relieve firearm-owning, responsible, willing-to-defend-themselves-and-their-families adults of their children is not going to end well. 

But, after all, that is exactly why Lou Gagliardi wants someone else to execute her totalitarian pipe dreams – she is too much of a coward to go door-to-door herself, and face those armed parents while attempting to unjustly and unethically strip them of their children.  She would rather hide in whatever hovel she calls a home, and demand, plead, scream for men – armed men, despite her hatred of firearms – to go and kidnap law-abiding citizens’ children for no good reason except she does not like something you said. 

And, tell me, what will those armed men do when you say, “No”?  What will those armed men do when you attempt to defend your children – your family – from unjust and illegal attempts at kidnapping them? 

If you follow Lou Gagliardi’s demands to their logical conclusion, she wants people – other people, of course (you, federal agents, your children, etc.) – to die simply because she does not like you owning firearms and peacefully expressing that you support the right to continue owning them. 

How disgusting is that

Some folks following me questioned why I was toying with Lou Gagliardi for as long as I did, especially once she sunk into the inescapable morass of endless logical fallacies.  This is why.  It is important for we pro-rights activists to fully grasp some anti-rights cultists’ deep-seated, irrational, visceral, and obscene hatred for us, for our families, for our lives.  Certainly not all “gun control” fetishists believe as Lou Gagliardi does, but this theme of attacking pro-rights activists through their children is becoming distressingly common

Bear that murderous hatred in mind when you question the need to contact your senators and representatives and let them know that your support depends on their support of freedom and our individual rights. 

[Update]  Holy crap on an everloving crutch.  Immediately after writing this post and finally tired of Lou Gagliardi’s incessant lies and harassment, I went to block her Twitter account, only to be confronted with this tweet: 

lougagliardikidnapper3Lou Gagliardihotair.com/archives/2013/01/06/mom-shoots-intruder-saves-kids/ … this mother needs to have her kids taken off of her by children’s bureau for having guns in the house #guncontrol

Take a look at the article she links to – a woman defends her family from a known felon breaking into her house, and yet Lou Gagliardi wants this woman’s children stolen from her?  “Disgusting” does not even begin to cover that position.  [/Update]

at least watergate did not involve murder

Been unable to keep up with the slow-motion train wreck that is the "Gunwalker" Scandal?

Good news – Rhino and Rats has put together a comprehensive background, vocabulary, and timeline regarding the fiasco, which puts pretty much everything you need to know in one place.

In a just world, an unmitigated disaster of this magnitude – including the murders of countless Mexican nationals and at least four American citizens – would have brought down the entire chain of command of the BATFE, if not the Attorney General and possibly even the President, given that an operation involving forcing the illegal and illicit sale of thousands of firearms to Mexican criminals would have had to have very high clearance indeed. Instead, I fear the shuffling of the deck we saw a few months ago may be the fullest extent of this scandal’s reach, which is a damning condemnation of America if there ever were one.

… that word; i do not think it means… ah, screw it

It may take me a few moments to compose myself in order to adequately respond to this news, rather than just flail meaninglessly on the keyboard:

The Obama administration announced Thursday that it would suspend deportation proceedings against many illegal immigrants who pose no threat to national security or public safety.

[…]

White House and immigration officials said they would exercise “prosecutorial discretion” to focus enforcement efforts on cases involving criminals and people who have flagrantly violated immigration laws.

*blink*

*blinkblink*

*headdesk*

Allow me to make myself perfectly clear: anyone who entered this country ILLEGALLY is, BY DEFINITION, a “criminal” and someone who has “flagrantly violated immigration laws”.

That would be what “illegal” means, you moronic excuses for rational human beings. Really, nothing more needs to be said.

holding their feet to the fire

Jay G has the “Dead Goblin Count”.

Barron is launching the “State Sponsored Criminal Count”:

The rules are simple:

1. The person worked for the government, IE: TSA, DHS, FBI, BATFE, or any other part of the government, local, state or federal.
2. The person committed the crime while on duty, or his job provided access to commit the crime under color of law (see the pedophile above).
3. High level incidents such as the “Fast and Furious” incidents count. Individual incidents involved in the same program can be counted separately.
4. Must have accompanying documentation with the submission.

To submit incidents, please use this form. You can also recommend any additions or changes to the rules, I may or may not accept them. Even if you don’t think it will fully meet the requirements above, most likely disqualifying factor is rule #2, send it anyway it will at least get an honorable mention.

Personally, I think this is a wonderful idea. Every single governmental employee – from the President of the United States all the way down to the freshest recruit at Great Lakes – is accountable to we, the people, and it is about time for us to start holding them to that requirement, since it has become painfully obvious that they will not hold themselves to it.

A government paycheck does not give you free reign to abuse the populace of America as you see fit. A tin badge does not mean everyone has to “respect your authority” regardless of what illegal or illicit activities you may be engaged in. And no matter how perverse our legal system has become over the years, “in the line of duty” should never protect someone who is engaged in criminal activities that have absolutely nothing to do with their jobs.

Unfortunately, more and more public servants seem to be of the belief that all of those above negatives are actually positives, and that their positions in their local/city/state/federal government gives them the power to do whatever they want without any kind of consequences. They are quite obviously wrong, and now is as good a time as any to remind them of that.

Cannot say as though I am happy with my state solidly rounding out the top ten and my county providing another hit, though…

i would be worried

… if I were them. But if I were them, I never would have partaken in an operation that resulted in thousands of untrackable firearms being smuggled across the border into Mexico with full governmental approval, and I would thus never have been an accessory-before-the-fact to countless murders in both countries, and would not have the Mexican government calling for my extradition and trial:

While the investigation continues into the U.S. operation that helped send thousands of guns south of the border, Mexican lawmakers say they’ll press for extradition and prosecution in Mexico of American officials who authorized and ran the operation.

"I obviously feel violated. I feel my country’s sovereignty was violated," Mexico Sen. Rene Arce Islas told Fox News. "They should be tried in the United States and the Mexican government should also demand that they also be tried in Mexico since the incidents took place here. There should be trials in both places."

[…]

"I think we should at least try to prove that what happened in Mexico must be sanctioned by Mexican laws and under our sovereignty," Creel told us. "What can’t happen is that this now ends on an administrative sanction, or a resignation. No, no, no. Human lives were lost here. A decision was made to carry out an operation that brought very high risk to human lives."

Honestly, I wish the Mexican government the very best of luck for exactly the reasons they mention – crimes, in America and Mexico alike, were committed, aided, and facilitated by the actions of BATFE agents, representatives, and managers who should be brought to justice for their illegal and unlawful actions. Obviously, we cannot reasonably try someone for crimes they committed in another country, so permitting the Mexican government to have their fair crack at those individuals responsible for the gunwalking only seems like an equitable solution.

Do I think the State Department is going to sign those scumbags over to the tender mercies of the Mexican penal system? Probably not. But it is one hell of a pendulum to hang over their heads to… encourage… their cooperation. That is, of course, assuming that anyone in our government gives a damn about the BATFE apparently aiding and abetting criminal organizations on both sides of the border…
