I have been writing about firearms for over 30 years with the overarching objective of educating and informing those who know little to nothing about the issue. Regardless of my best efforts, I have failed. I am disheartened to report that many in the general population of 30 years ago has morphed from ignorant and uninformed into just plain garden variety stupid today.
While it is accurate to acknowledge that the anti-gun, lying media complex has created and fortified the misinformation campaign against firearms, I lay the blame squarely at the feet of the gullible public that ingests this garbage.
Look no further than the very words of the anti-gun public in their expressions of opinion about guns. My local newspaper’s op-ed section on Sunday printed eleven letters about firearms. Nine of the eleven were negative and in each of those nine letters, provably false claims were made, not claims where thinking people can differ, but out-and-out falsehoods. Of course, the Gannett newspaper prints these because the lies justify their dedication towards the anti-gun agenda.
Don Lemon at CNN was caught on-air not knowing the difference between a semi-automatic and a fully automatic firearm and when called on it, he declared that, “it doesn’t matter.” Well it does matter Don. Rejecting the truth transforms you from ignorant to willfully stupid and whoever heard that segment with Lemon and still believes him, is stupid as well.
And worse yet, the politician’s who actually are responsible for enacting the laws seem to know less about the subject that the stupid people who elect them. California Senator Diane Feinstein, a vocal gun-hating ignoramus often mistakes a magazine for a projectile and not only doesn’t understand the differences in a bullets caliber, but clearly doesn’t want to learn because she has been in office for over 25 years, giving her plenty of time to distinguish between fact and fiction.
Political correctness, (PC), has declared as unacceptable calling anyone stupid. Those who believe this are a special brand of stupid. After we clear our head from the fog of PC, we know and accept that certain people are stupid and for this, there is no known cure, so I am finished trying to educate the illiterate. Those voices simply don’t matter anymore because they’re too stupid to bother arguing with. While these fools are entitled to their own opinions, they cannot construct their own alternative facts.
The millions of us who legally and safely own firearms have had enough lectures from stupid people devoid of facts, blabbering on with the talking points from their fellow travelers who control their small minds and forge their very opinions, useful idiots as Lenin called them.
Here is the reality. Governmental failure at all levels is to blame for almost every mass tragedy, from 911 to Parkland, yet the useful idiots focus on the firearms. Now that same government of repeated failures wants to “fix” the problem? Indeed, a special kind of stupid embraces that.
