These people, like the authors of the New York Times article they are talking about in the following video, that write this garbage, don’t have a freaking clue what they are talking about, yet they seem to think they are some sort of intelligent, legitimate source of information. Shut up already, you’re drunk!
“Certain kinds of weapons…must be outlawed…It would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.”For the first time in 95 years, The New York Times is using an editorial on its front page to push gun control. What do you make of this?

Someone a few days ago on my Facebook page offered the perfect analogy. Listening to anti-gun politicians and media people talk about guns is like listening to a virgin talk about sex. They read something somewhere in a book, and now they think they are an expert.
If they were truly interested in seeking a solution, they would seek subject matter experts. When they are talking about heart disease, they consult a doctor. If they are talking about flying an airplane, they contact a pilot. If they are talking about building construction, they contact an architect or a structural engineer. Why do they try to treat guns and crime so differently?
The difference is, on the subject of guns, they just want them gone. There is no true desire to prevent “gun violence” because if there was, they would examine the evidence, and all evidence shows that gun control laws do not reduce violent crime, and in some cases, they actually make it worse. And to the contrary, as gun laws have become more relaxed since the sunset of the Clinton Gun Ban, both gun ownership and issuance of concealed carry permits has skyrocketed, all the while the violent crime rate has dropped.
I’ll tell you what time it is. It is time for all the anti-gun politicians, pundits and media folks who don’t know doodly squat about guns, ammo, self-defense or law enforcement to Shut The Hell Up and look to the subject matter experts for useful suggestions based on real world experience.
Since we know that is not going to happen, it is once again time to start calling and writing your representatives. We need to be very vocal about defending our rights. If we aren’t, the screaming, loud mouthed, uneducated (on the topic) anti-gun people out there are going to win, because they are not afraid to loudly proclaim their ignorance at the top of their lungs, while demanding legislation that will DO NOTHING to stop these crimes.
