Yea for the 2nd Amendment!

See Why The Constitution Matters: Woman Shoots, Kills Would-Be Rapist

A thug broke into a suburban Atlanta woman’s home, and attacked her at knifepoint at 6:30 a.m. while she was in the shower. A struggle ensued, during which the woman was injured. Eventually, though, she was able to get her hands on her .22, and shortly thereafter, the woman pumped 9 rounds into her assailant. He staggered outside and was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Morals of the story:

  • The Second Amendment ain’t about hunting.
  • You can’t assume the police  will be there when you need them.
  • If you’re a woman and you live alone, you should buy a gun and learn how to protect yourself with it. (Actually, everyone should do this, but single women especially.)

I will never, ever vote for a candidate who would have preferred that this woman get raped (i.e. any candidate who opposes guns in the hands of law abiding citizens).

If this woman lived in Canada, Australia, Ireland, Scotland, England, Australia, and much of the rest of the world, she would have had two choices:

  • Get raped at knifepoint (and probably murdered at knifepoint afterwards)
  • Get arrested and imprisoned for owning and using a handgun

This reminds me of a friend of ours who turned someone in to CPS for sexually abusing an infant.  The perpetrator correctly inferred that it was her and called with death threats and stood outside her yard in a menacing way.  I will always want to protect the right of someone like her to go get a gun that day.

I also know of someone who got death threats from a former employee who was arrested for theft.  The criminal’s threats weren’t deemed sufficiently dangerous by a judge so he wouldn’t even issue a restraining order.  I definitely want that victim to be able to get a gun if he wants.

False teacher breaks hypocrisy meter

Just when you thought that race-baiting false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie couldn’t get any more hypocritical, here he is shedding crocodile tears over the threats of murder by one of the Tuscon shooting victims —  Tucson Victim Threatens Tea Party Member: A Sad Postscript.

To recap, before the bodies were cold Chuck & Co. published their Liberal talking points about Sarah Palin, TEA partiers, etc. being the root cause of the shootings.  They deliberately ignored countless uses of target imagery and violent metaphors by Obama and the Democrats so they could score cheap political points.  Even Obama ultimately admitted (after intense polling, I’m sure) that they had nothing to do with the pot-smoking, Communist loving killer.

But that wasn’t good enough for Chuck & Co.  In a spectacularly morbid irony, their hate speech against Palin et al resulted in an increase in death threats for her.  And then the Tuscon victim noted above makes a death threat against a TEA partier and has to be taken into custody!

If Chuck had a shred of consistency he’d take the blame for the man’s unhinged murderous hatred of TEA partiers.

These people have no shame.  They just use tragedies to advance their misguided gun control ideas.  As noted by a commenter at my other blog:

This piece makes an argument based on comparing suicide deaths often including in total gun related deaths.

. . .

As to violent crime, that isn’t necessarily the only factor to consider. Home burglaries are high in areas where the citizenry is disarmed, and Ireland has a relatively high rate of that. In addition, such occurs in the US mostly during the day, when people are not at home because of the higher possibility of getting shot. In countries where guns are banned, home invasion takes place at night and the presence of the homeowner and his family isn’t a concern since they’re unarmed.

Much of the gun violence comes from the members of broken homes caused by policies advocated by Currie and the National Council of (mostly apostate) Churches.
