Any long-time participant in the ongoing debate surrounding "gun control" and the unjust abrogations of our basic, Constitutionally-protected human rights will be familiar with the phrase Reasoned Discourse, but for those newcomers to the field, allow me to give you a short-and-sweet summation of the idea.
Of late, and in the past, "gun control" supporters have been crying that they want to have a "debate" / "conversation" / "discussion" about the future of "gun [...]
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 – [...]
… and now “shall be punished otherwise, in such manner as the Legislature may prescribe.” No, seriously.
After yesterday’s post documenting how James Yeager is a coward, not based on his actions in Iraq, but rather his actions here in America, I was planning on leaving this whole topic alone for the foreseeable future, but this is just too much comedic gold to pass up. As was pointed out to me by WizardPC, dueling [...]
A few days ago, yet another anti-rights cultist made some bleating tweet about how Americans needed to have a "conversation" about "gun violence" and "gun deaths". Obviously, we have already had this conversation (hint: the anti-rights cultists lost, and rightfully so), but this "conversation" schtick is the current "gun control" talking point, so all of the useful idiots are out in droves harping on it as hard as they can.
Anywise, I pointed out [...]
Just take a look at this conversation:
@willspencer: Most "Libertarians" want Obama to win, because they are angry at America. @RedheadAndRight @glennmw @KurtSchlichter @tnacgal
@linoge_wotc: I assume this was sarcasm. RT @willspencer Most "Libertarians" want Obama to win, because they are angry at America.
@willspencer: Unfortunately, no. Instead, it is an honest evaluation of what I am seeing. @linoge_wotc [Note: Tweet successfully Memory Hole’d. Replicated from memory.]
@linoge_wotc: Your perception is wrong. I suspect [...]
Remember that video of me going to town with my Saiga-12? (I mean, it is only a few posts down from this one.)
Well, it turns out that single, solitary video, posted six days ago, has had more views than the 33 most-recent videos the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership put up… combined (and some of those videos have been up for four months now). Even better, neither "likes/dislikes" nor comments have [...]
Kindly print out this article about the shooting of Jose Guerena.
Then, please print out this article about the shooting of Kathryn Johnston.
Next, print out this article regarding a "raid" executed on the Berwyn Heights, MD mayor’s home.
Finally, start printing out these 471,000+ Bing results.
Once you have finished all of that, kindly take the reams of paper you have created, fold them until they are all sharp corners, [...]
It is disappointing when an ostensibly pro-rights forum sinks to engaging in reasoned discourse simply because the member in question had the temerity to question a supposedly pro-rights organization’s stance on open carry in Texas. Unfortunately, this behavior does not appear to be unprecedented at the forum in question.
It is even more disappointing when an ostensibly pro-rights competitive shooter and low-grade attention whore sides with two grade-A attention whores* when they decided to [...]
I suppose I should be thankful that some things in this world will remain constant, no matter how much everything else around us changes.
It would appear as though wanna-be gunblogger and certified attention whore Robert Farago is still being a dick, and a rather ineffective one at that.
Color me surprised.
Someone who stoops to arbitrarily deleting comments and then lying about the content of those comments, misappropriating and misrepresenting others’ [...]
This is a prime example of why, by and large, attempting to argue with anti-rights nuts is fruitless and frustrating for all people involved – when they realize they are losing the conversation, they shove their fingers in their ears, start screaming nonsense, and run off into the horizon:
iamboogie: Wow. “Some polls have indicated that 67 percent of Texans are against guns on campus.” And yet. http://j.mp/icBunr #noguns #TXlege
wotc_linoge: @iamboogie If 67% [...]
It is funny the things you forget…
In our discussion of Baldr Odinson’s not-so-pitiable whining, Miguel noticed that I threw up a “(TM)” after “Reasoned Discourse”, and surmised that I had somehow managed to trademark the actual phrase – fortunately or unfortunately, this is not the case, and I was simply putting the abbreviation there as a continuation of the internet meme of arbitrarily adding those letters after common phrases, like God’s Green Earth [...]
Yesterday, very shortly after posting my revived version of the poll Baldr Odinson took down, I dropped a comment at his anti-rights weblog inviting him and all of his hoplophobic buddies to stop by and vote.
Since then, multiple other comments left by other people have been approved for “public consumption”, but mine is still in the nether void of Reasoned Discourse (TM).
What does Baldr fear? Why would he not be interested [...]
By now, regular readers should know my position regarding using polls as support for further “gun control” legislation, so this post is not even going to go into the fallacy of believing that individual rights are, or should be, subject to the whims of popular opinion; instead, I am mostly just going to sit around and point and laugh.
Everyone remember Baldr Odinson of the new anti-rights weblog “New Trajectory”? The narrow-minded, passive-aggressive, wounded-martyr, [...]
We have talked about this before, but it bears repeating as often as the opportunity presents itself.
Anti-rights nuts have a particular propensity for ironically playing the “victim card” by claiming to have received threatening, abusive, or otherwise aggressive comments, but there is a problem with that habit: invariably, these anti-rights nuts also practice Reasoned Discourse (TM) and can therefore claim whatever their little hearts desire without anyone being able to verify or substantiate [...]
