Joyce Carol Oates: My hope for violence against NRA members wasn't 'ironic'; 'I meant this seriously'

Er … was there anyone who believed famed author Joyce Carol Oates was being “ironic” when she tweeted, “If sizable numbers of NRA members become gun-victims themselves, maybe hope for legislation of firearms?” A classless and vile wish for ushering in gun control through violence against gun owners, sure. But ironic?

This one takes the faux-pology cake.

While we’re not convinced that the renowned literary maven actually gets what irony is, she does appear to have a solid grasp on absurdity and the construction of faulty analogies.

Maybe Sen. McCain just needs to have his plane shot down again to really learn his lesson, huh, Joyce?

But by all means, weigh in on things you “don’t get.”

The only thing that’s missing now is a little speculation that gun owners routinely murder in cold blood and blame shooting accidents. Wait for it …

Despicable.

  • SanDiegoSteve

    What an assclown. Come at me bitch!

  • Streetiebird

    She makes a good point. And Twitchy once again comes to the rescue and changes her statement into a “hope” for violence against NRA members, classy as always.

      You can’t be serious Bird. If you want someone to explain away her stupidity, your gonna have to look to the lefty media.

    • SanDiegoSteve

      Searching for the good point but not finding one. To what good point are you referring? All I’ve read has been BS.

      • Hello Jerry (D)

        All Shitbird posts is BS. i’m beginning to think we found Tingles’s username…

      • Streetiebird

        Here it is, since you missed it:
        “If sizable numbers of NRA members were themselves gun victims they might be more sympathetic with victims & with the effort to regulate guns”

        • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

          LOL, he didn’t ask what she spewed, he asked what good point she had. Only good point I see around here is the one on top of your head.
          ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Streetiebird

            I would ask you what your point is, but I know you never have one Rob. The article itself doesn’t even have a point other than Twitchy’s usual demonizing of fellow Americans and politicizing tragedy.

          • grais

            “demonizing of fellow Americans and politicizing tragedy” like Oates, et al are doing, right?

          • Streetiebird

            No, more like Limbaugh and FOX news, but carry on.

          • grais

            So, she’s not demonizing law-abiding, responsible, NRA member “fellow Americans and politicizing tragedy?”
            How do you breathe with all that sand in your nose?

          • Joe W.

            Tweety breathes from his sphincter.

          • Streetiebird

            No, not demonizing, just hoping they will be compassionate in light of this recent tragedy. There’s a difference.

          • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

            No. That’s not what you’re doing at all. We are all very heartbroken and outraged that something like this happened. We just don’t think that the solution is one of the Leftard Big Two: 1) Raise taxes 2) Ban guns. There’s the essence of the modern Demonrat Party right there, folks, all those self-declared geniuses and profound scholars and revolutionaries and forward – moving progressives — all that (pseudo-) intellectualism boils down to the same four words they’ve been shoveling for the last 30 years.
            ;- )

          • Streetiebird

            Who suggested banning guns? It should be easy for you to find right?

            Again you fail to contribute anything to the conversation other than “OMG Demonrats want to take my guns!!!1”

          • Adela Wagner

            Geez, talking about bringing BACK THE BAN on AR 15’s MIGHT be a clue as to someone suggesting a ban.Go look up ol Dianne Feinstein.

          • Streetiebird

            That’s *a* gun, we’re talking about banning “guns*.

          • Cold War Grunt

            And what makes you think we aren’t compassionate. Oh wait, compassionate == give up our constitutional rights when its been proven, in the US, time and time again, taking away gun rights doesn’t impact gun crime rates. The only thing that will impact gun crime rates is taking away all guns, from everyone. How do you propose to do that?

            We’ll wait while you concoct some hopey-changey idea to get the criminals to turn in their guns … meh, on second thought, no point in waiting. It can’t be done short of creating an absolute police state where no one has any rights period.

          • Streetiebird

            Cute :) You assume I want to take people’s guns away when I’ve never suggested such a thing.

            But maybe you’re right and there’s no point in even trying to reduce gun violence…

          • Cold War Grunt

            if you aren’t proposing taking away guns from people, then what are you proposing. What exactly should the state or federal government done differently in the Ct. case that would have prevented the tragedy — other than making the concept of a gun free zone a thing of the past.

            The shooter was not the legal owner of the guns used? We’ll wait for you to work through the fact that you are in a logical corner.

          • Streetiebird

            Did you even read my posts? Or do you just go straight to denying that we have a gun problem in America? Did I say anything about Sandy Hook?

          • Cold War Grunt

            deflect. See, there you go, did I read your posts, yes I did. the shooting in Ct. is the reason we are having this discussion. Or do you believe that Ms. Oates comments are unrelated to that “incident”?

            There is not a gun problem in America — there is a people problem. Guns are inanimate objects, they are a not a problem. The problem is the people using them. And if, as you say, guns are the problem, that implies that the way to solve the problem is to have less guns. Therefor you admit that you are trying to take guns away — but just a second ago, elsewhere in this thread, you told me that I assumed you were saying that, but you had not said that — you are a liar, and a poor liar at that.

            If you can’t keep up with your lies and half truths, and aren’t going to defend any of your irrational statements, then I will just keep hammering each and every response, Individually. I feel sorry for you, your life must really suck if this is the only way you can get attention — and to be clear, I mean you are ignorant, immature troll incapable of participating in a rational political discussion.

          • Streetiebird

            *sigh* Think whatever you want, and believe whatever title Twitchy puts on their pages, it’ll be easier for everyone that way.

            have a merry Christmas :)

          • Cold War Grunt

            Again, deflect.

            Oates wants to take guns away — else she wouldn’t have brought up the NRA — because the NRA is a citizen funded lobbying group that ensures, by the voluntary will of its members paying membership fees, the 2nd amendment is not revoked or repealed.

            You want to take guns away, you’ve admitted it me, on this thread after first denying it, or alluding to a denial, and refuse to clarify or refute after I’ve asked you at least 3 times.

          • Streetiebird

            Wow, you’re amazing!!! What am I thinking right now??

          • Hello Jerry (D)

            You only wish you were amazing.

          • Hello Jerry (D)

            Like you?

          • Joe W.

            Hey, douche nozzle…the NRA is about the ONLY group that HASN’T attempted to capitalize on this tragedy. But you won’t even acknowledge that, will you. They have remained silent until tomorrow, out of respect for the dead and their entire community.

          • Streetiebird

            LOL but all the NRA members have been loudly trying to capitalize on the tragedy. But yeah, since they know it makes them look bad they kept their head down and to their credit even took down the ManCard Bushmaster page. Maybe this time they’ll actually get involved with trying to find common-sense solutions.

          • Cold War Grunt

            All the NRA members? Do you know how many members the NRA has? For the record, you’re responsible of the loudness of at least one NRA member .. me.

          • Streetiebird

            Sorry, I should have said “All the idiots who joined the NRA for the wrong reasons”. Some NRA members are quite respectable.

          • Cold War Grunt

            Nice cheap shot there …

          • Cold War Grunt

            Oh, and what exactly are the “wrong reasons” — once again we see famous the liberal-progressive “tolerance” in play. Unlike you, I won’t make up things and attribute them to someone, so I’ll let you clarify.

            So, how long have I been an NRA member? What type of membership do I have? Since you seem to know so much about everybody, I’m curious.

          • grais

            Is it her compassion that causes her to hope that “enough” random gun violence against “enough” random NRA members will result in their willingness to give up their Constitutional right to own those guns? Sure, maybe she’s not demonizing them (*eyeroll*), but why is she imagining all this violence against people she doesn’t even know; “fellow Americans?”

            You seem to know the workings of her mind; tell me, then, how can she possibly have such ridiculous ideas?

          • Streetiebird

            Again, your reading Twitchy’s misleading article where they have apparently read her mind. Look at her statement, that is all there is. The rest is idle speculation.

          • grais

            No, I’m reading and replying to Your responses. According to you, she’s hoping that the result of gun violence against NRA members will be that they will become compassionate. You have interpreted her statement and I’m asking you to do more of that.

          • Streetiebird

            That’s actually the opposite of what I said, you must have problems with reading comprehension. I quoted her statement, but beyond that I’m not going to play the Twitchy game and try to read her mind and distort what was said, but you can do that all you want.

          • Streetiebird

            LOL both sides immediately politicized this tragedy. The right just seems to do it to sell more guns, while the left is actually interested in saving lives.

      And what would that point be, Needlenose? I cannot seems to see it. Care to help explain it?? I’ll wait…..

      • Hello Jerry (D)

        You’ll be waiting a very LONG time for anything coherent from Shitbird.

      • Streetiebird

        Here’s her statement since you missed it:
        “If sizable numbers of NRA members were themselves gun victims they might be more sympathetic with victims & with the effort to regulate guns”

        • Joe W.

          Yeah, pal, I read it. What POINT did she make?? As an NRA Member, I keep and carry guns for my protection. I doubt I will be a “victim”. If I do NOT have my weapons available for me to defend myself, and I get shot, what makes you think I would NOT want my self defense reinstated. All the more so, because I would be lucky to have survived. You are flat out stooooopid, Tweetybird….

          • Streetiebird

            She made a statement. Twitchy blows it out of proportion and makes a misleading article about it. That’s the point.

          • Joe W.

            More BS, fool. You should quit while your behind. All Twitchy has done is to post screen grabs of the woman’s PRECISE words…nothing “blown out of proportion”….She did that all on her own. Its so much fun mopping the floor with you ignorant liberal face, bird….I appreciate you giving me the opportunity. Whatever Joyce is paying you, it ain’t enough…..

          • Streetiebird

            Actually they added an inflammatory title and other wording to mislead about what the actual statement was, which is what they always do when a liberal says something they disagree with. Whatever Karl Rove is paying you, it’s too much.

          • Joe W.

            Since when is paraphrasing her own words “inflammatory”, Zippy?? Your pals at the KOS, HUFF PO, and MSM TV does it all the time. You never get your panties in a wad then, do you. Silly cockroach.

          • Streetiebird

            Paraphrasing is one thing, but did you look carefully at the article vs what was said? Did she ever say she hoped for violence against NRA members? She’s not like you, hoping for violence against liberals.

          • Joe W.

            Whenever did I post anything remotely suggesting that I hoped violence upon liberals? Y’all will have to throw your limp wristed purse at me first before I physically do anything to you. And, should someone be assaulting you and I encounter the event, I’ll refrain from defending your ungrateful ass with my bought and paid for ammunition. But HOPE for violence. Nah. I merely EXPECT there to be violence. Plenty of it, too.

          • Streetiebird

            And when did Joyce post anything remotely suggesting that she hoped violence upon NRA members? See how this works?

          ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Streetiebird

            NRA members are awesome. I hope that they will see that there is a need to try to save the lives of children.

            Are you going to defend Nugent or what?

          • Cold War Grunt

            We do see the need. Our solution is to train/arm the teachers and administrators; not create more victims — which is all further regulation of firearms is going to accomplish, c.f., Australia.

            There is no correlation in the US between the ability to legally own a gun and gun crime rates. Do you really think that criminals are going to turn in their ARs if it becomes illegal to own one? The shooting in Ct — the guns were not legally his — he killed his mother and took them.

            As is typical, liberals only see symptoms, not root causes.

            I’ll defend Ted, he’s a talented guitarist/musician, and a patriot. But he has nothing to do with this conversation. Again, as is typical for liberals, deflect.

            I realize you are too scared to post anything that can be refuted with logic, given that Spin is just going to eviscerate you, but surely you can do better than this. Emotive strawmen and insults are all you have, but at least try to be creative.

          • Streetiebird

            Your solution is to train teachers to shoot kids? Awesome. Let’s do that, then allow students to carry guns in inner cities too…

            Here’s something that you could try to refute with logic if you wanted to: I support background checks being mandatory when purchasing guns and I think the background checks we do in some states have already saved lives.

            I know you’ll just say that more guns will solve the problem, but I’m open to other ideas too.

          • Cold War Grunt

            No, that is not my solution. Stop making strawmen. You get all pissy and ask if other people have read the article or the original tweets .. did you read my response? Where does ‘creating fewer victims’ say ‘have teachers shoot children.’

            You are emotionally immature and incapable of holding a rational conversation. Guns don’t solve problems, people do, well rational people do … lets see what were the contributing root causes to the Ct. shooting:

            Someone that should have been under medical care — not under medical care. See liberal-progressive “reforms” of the mental health laws in the late 60’s and early 70’s — people can’t be institutionalized or forced to be under the care of a mental health professional until they’ve hurt themselves or others. Too damn late at that point — you have victims.

            Gun free zones — if you have a CCL, you should be allowed to carry. All public schools should have a number of teachers, administrators and or guards specifically trained to deal with these situations and weapons secure, but readily accessible. Its the liberal-progressives that believe passing more laws / more regulations will prevent this sort of thing. It won’t — c.f., China last Friday.

            I can guarantee you if the principal and a few others had been armed, the shooter would be dead and we’d not be having this conversation. These things only happen in gun free zones. The theater, the mall, the school. We got lucky, an off duty LEO with a weapon stopped the mall shooter.

            You still haven’t provided a solution … yet you twist my words. Spin is dead on about you.

          • Streetiebird

            Cool story, bro.

          • Cold War Grunt

            Again you deflect and avoid answering direct questions. Provide a solution that would have prevented any of the last three shootings that does not involve taking guns away from law abiding citizens, or prove yourself to be a liar and a coward that we all know you to be.

          • Streetiebird

            LOL you’re cute :) How about we try to be more neighborly and get involved with our fellow citizens? Then maybe these idiots wouldn’t think that life is disposable.

            Your turn to suggest a solution that would have prevented any of the last three shootings that does not involve taking guns away from law abiding citizens, or prove yourself to be a liar and a coward that we all know you to be.

          • Cold War Grunt

            And what exactly have I lied about? what have I showed cowardice about? What makes you think I am not involved with my community and/or neighbors, and why are you calling people with legitimate mental issues, unrelated to their abstract reasoning abilities idiots? You really are a little troll, aren’t you.

            For the record, all of the most recent shootings, and in fact the Gabby Giffords tragedy could have been prevented if it was possible to force people into proper counseling and or therapy before they commit a crime, when it is recognized that they present a danger to themselves and the community at large. But no, we can’t do that, that wouldn’t be fair to them, so in the late 60s and early 70s the dems changed the laws.

            No guns taken away, no civil liberties revoked without due cause. 4 young people, already flagged in the system as being dangerous to themselves and/or others would have gotten the care they needed.

            Unlike yourself, I will actually answer questions, even when the person asking them won’t show the same courtesy.

          • Streetiebird

            I answered you, but you fail to propose your own solution.

          • Cold War Grunt

            No, you never answered me. You quoted me back to me, or made snide remarks. Where did you offer a solution.

          • Cold War Grunt

            Wait, are you talking about your background check comment above? Federal background checks are already mandatory when purchasing a gun from a licensed dealer. How exactly is passing a law that already exists going to change to things? Have you ever purchased a gun, legally?

            http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/nics — law passed in 1993, DB online and used since 1998.

            How exactly is a law that already exists, that has been irrelevant in 3 out of the last 3 mass shootings (as the shooters had all stolen the weapons used) going to prevent future mass shootings with stolen weapon.

          • Streetiebird

            You apparently didn’t read my posts. We’re done here since you just keep going in circles.

            Translation: Blah Blah Blah Blah

          • Cold War Grunt

            Federal background checks are mandatory for purchase of a firearm from a dealer.

          • Streetiebird

            But not for private sales (mostly at gun shows)

          • SpinMeNot

            Ok, so what you are saying is to make it illegal to transfer ownership of a firearm without going through a licensed dealer?

            How do you hope to enforce that? Is that a valid application of the Commerce Clause? What does that say about selling a used smart phone to a teenager that then uses it to text while driving and kills a family? What weapons that are pre 1890, and considered antiques rather than firearms by US Law?

          • Streetiebird

            No, that’s not what I’m saying :)

          • SpinMeNot

            Ok, then what are you saying? Are you proposing that background checks be required before a gun can be sold by a private seller? If so, how is that background check to be performed? Who will validate that it has been performed? How do we establish the identity of both the seller and the buyer — after all, the seller could have stolen the firearm in question.

            There is merit to the idea — just how does it work in practice?

          • Joe W.

            What a maroon….I don’t watch O’Reilly, cupcake. And how in hell can you celebrate the birth of someone whom you claim never existed, never was Crucified, was never resurrected and is not coming to rule the world and defeat Satan once and forever?? If that is NOT hypocritical, then I do not know the meaning of the word. You are filth for your treatment of the Almighty God, the Holy Spirit, and Christ Jesus. I’ll pray for you, but only because God commands me to do so. Who knows….you may listen one day. But I doubt it. As for the other two comments you just posted, I’ll not bother. My 6 year old grand daughter has more intellect, comprehension skills and common sense than you. I’m done with you for the day. You are the kind of weasel that makes it very difficult to be a Christian, son. Good day.

          • Streetiebird

            LOL it’s hard to stop laughing long enough to type, but I’ll try. Christmas is a time to celebrate togetherness, generosity, family, and friends. If you want to use it to celebrate Jesus life (or death) then that’s your choice.

            But thank you for treating me as you would like to be treated (very poorly I assume). Apparently without God telling you how to treat people you’d behave even worse (scary thought I know).

            Merry Christmas!

      This..and did it ever dawn on her that some NRA members may be victims of firearm violence & that’s why they’re now NRA members.

      • Just Another Guy

        You can count me among that number, Cheesy.

        Being robbed and pistol-whipped turned my whole thinking around back when I was young and in college.

        Then I actually studied and learned about the Second Amendment and all that stuff.

        Now I’m an NRA member. And I’m armed.

        People like Oates should never wish something on others that they wouldn’t wish on themselves.

  • fmahoney

    I can never agree with her on this issue. it is possible to call for change without wishing death and bad things on people.

    Is it possible to agree that something should be done to reduce violence in our society. Yes people should be able to protect their families.

    Rights to guns should never super seen the right to life and liberty.

    • Cold War Grunt

      Who is suggesting that something not be done about the level of violence in our society? I’ve not heard that … There is, in the US, no correlation between gun laws and reduction in violent crimes. In many cases, there is evidence for the opposite. In Australia, they actually took measures to remove the guns from society, no ‘grandfathering’. Violent crimes with guns went up. Israel has a very high gun ownership rate, but very low gun crime rate. It isn’t the guns, its the people — and this is largely the message coming from the right. Please tell us all who, on the right, is denying there is a problem with violence in the mainstream US culture today.

      With regards to the rights to guns, I’d ask who is suggesting that it takes higher precedence to the right to life? If the right to life is important, why do many of the people that argue for abortion, demand repeal of gun rights on the basis of an innocent being shot and killed?

      I would also point out that the 2nd amendment is the one thing that ensures the right to liberty in this country. Without either of those (militias and right to arms), we’d be subjects of the crown, rather than citizens of the US.

      No one is arguing the the 2nd amendment supplants the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In fact, you will find most law-abiding gun owners are all for the restrictions that apply to felons, individuals with dishonorable discharges, or those that are mentally unstable from owning guns.

      And its supersede by the way …

          The rest of the developed world can kiss my ass! This is America. We are not the rest of the world. We have rights that other countries don’t have.

    • Just Another Guy

      Unfortunately, weapons are what help guarantee Life and Liberty. An unarmed citizen, as we’ve seen around the globe over centuries, is not much more than a serf or slave.

      As a result, citizens who value their freedom are willing, if reluctantly, to take up arms to defend life and liberty. Just ask those who served in our Military who fought and perhaps were injured in serving that cause.

      Or those who served in the founding of our country at extreme cost to themselves and their families to found our nation.

  • Rick Stones

    Someone should update her Wikipedia page. Under “Early Life and Education”, here’s my suggestion:

    “Oates claims to have personally witnessed an unusually large number of deaths in the small western New York hamlet where she spent her childhood. Although none of these deaths have ever been reported, Oates personally remembers hundreds (or even thousands) of them, all resulting from “accidental” gun violence. She is quite obviously living in a confused psychotic state of mind and incapable of discerning reality from the fiction of her crappy novels (or, alternatively, she’s just another reprehensible liberal who lies a lot). But now, as she has gained the wisdom only possible from associations with other lying liberal academic douchologists, she is beginning to question whether all these hundreds (or thousands) of gun accidents dreamed up in her goofy imagination, were actually intentional murders by the crazed gun-loving madmen… With fangs… Who hate bunnies… And belong to the NRA.”

    • MoxieLouise

      She looks like Niles Crane’s wife on crack.

    A couple hundred years ago some men saw people like Joyce coming. And decided they better give us the 2nd Amendment.

    Just because we own guns doesn’t mean that we’re not sympathetic to victims of gun violence….idiot!

  • tina v

    Who is this woman, maybe lady gagme could loan her one of her face covers!!! If her brain matches her looks, she is one scary trolll.

  • WisconsinPatriot

    Joyce Carol Oates……who is this? Why do I care if she wishes me death?She is such a frail little thing, I could certainly kick her ass back to the “smart person” asylum she clearly broke out of. I also cannot see the potential “irony” to NRA members being killed. NRA members are just people, so more dead people would create irony??? If she truly is “renowned” for something, lets hope it isn’t related to storytelling. THAT would be ironic!

  • Rodney Brungardt

    Another elitist who doesn’t get it!! Try getting educated on the NRA and firearms before making comments that make you look stupid!!

  • http://twitter.com/unclepavian Rob Ramcharan

    This of course is the same Joyce Carol Oates who wrote so approvingly of grown men pummeling one another into unconsciousness before paying crowds.

  • BeeKaaay

    She’s a bloodthirsty leftwingwacko. No surprise there.

    First who is Joyce Carol Oates? Another nobody with no sense.
    Second I am a gun victim who use to be anti-gun until my ex husband pulled a gun on me in a drug and alcohol induced range…and a gun issued him by the military, not one he owned or bought himself. That and living in Los Angeles was enough to make me a gun advocate to protect myself and my family.
    Third, after seeing her picture, I’m more frightened by her face than by anyone with a gun. Her face should be banned, along with her stupidity!

  • S Davidson

    I seriously wish someone would violently attack her hair with a reasonable hair-do.

  • fivebyfive

    Gun control NOW
    This means LEARN to SHOOT BACK

  • Michael Rice

    It is amazing how she seems to beleive no NRA membrs have ever been victimized by guns.

  • S Davidson

    It’s just as likely that gun owners were the victims of violence, hence gun ownership.

  • Janna

    What? What if a conservative had written this? I bet she got cheers and well wishes from the left. These people want all pro-gun persons to be shot up while being anti-gun. Makes perfect sense. Ridiculous double speak.

  • Michael Rice

    Teh anti war left cites violence begetting violence in teh case of defending a nation but now this????
    THey call teh NRA a terrorists organizatioin because they want us to be so terrorirzed by teh state of teh country that we allow mroe guns.
    Wouldn’t the left’s wish for us to believe we are so terrorized by guns that we need to ban them also classify as a terror organization?

  • David Atherton

    It’s really a shame that someone has to go thru life being so ugly AND so stupid!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dave-Arnold/583280923 Dave Arnold

    Didn’t she play Doctor Vargus in Fast Times at Ridgemont High?

  • RightThinking1

    Why would Ms. Oates (and I add here, she bears something of a resemblance to Warren Oates) think for a moment that NRA members are not sympathetic with the victims of the massacre? What a hubris-ridden, foolish thing to say. One supposes that it is because the mass media constantly portray NRA members as blood-thirsty morons.

    Was the killer’s mother an NRA member? Was her son? If the answer is ‘no’, then one might assume a closer association between Ms. Oates (non-NRA member) and the killer (non NRA member) , than between the killer and the NRA.

    If that sounds like tortured reasoning, it is because I have learned it from the Left.

  • fivebyfive

    It must be sad to not know what freedom actually means

  • fivebyfive

    U.S.A. freedom of religion freedom of speech and JCO is proof of freedom of STUPIDITY
    gramma would say “Bless her heart”

  • Conservaguy

    What a disgusting piece of human debris.

  • Eric Hutchison

    Apparently it’s okay for the far left to wish harm upon others in this country. They do it all the time and are never called out for it.

  • mary kile

    I was going to respond to one of her posts, but her irritating smugness and her stereotyped musings let me know this “author” is hopeless. Have you noticed how many of her posts are like a fortune cookie? LMAO

  • http://twitter.com/ramskates Rae Ann McCurry

    Now I’m going to have to see if I have any of her books. They will make good kindling, and that was not a metaphor.

  • lcky9

    Who the H*LL is this UGLY woman???

    There are anti-gun folks you can talk to. Folks you can reason with. Folks you can get to understand, even if they won’t agree, they will get it. There are many anti-gun folks who, through civil discourse and reasoning, you can get to understand the problem is not the guns, it’s many other contributing factors (i.e., mental illness, the decline of society, glamorization of violence, society’s increasing disregard for human life, lack of personal accountability and problem resolution skills in our culture today, etc.) I am having these conversations with my friends and acquaintances who are firmly anti-gun…I am bringing them around to understanding it’s not the guns. However, there are folks you just can’t reason with, you just can’t get through to them – they want to believe only what they want to believe, no matter what else might seem like a reasonable explanation for the problem. They refuse to believe anything other than the immediate, permanent and total removal of guns from the US will magically make us some kind of utopia where there is no violence, crime and people harming others. They are insane. They are detached from reality. They live in a world that exists only in their heads. This woman is one of them. You have to write folks like her off – you will NEVER get through to them.

  • Debra

    So… what if we wished violence on #Libtard Joyce Carol Oates by the Libs with guns, that always pull off these heinous acts… I guess that wouldn’t be politically correct right?

  • SwTk

    I take back my opinion of this person being a Big ‘ol Cup O Crazy. She’s a 50 gallon drum O Crazy.

  • Richard Willey

    You can see the torment and miserable existance shes had in her face …Poor lady..

  • TocksNedlog

    Why stop there, Joyce? Why not go ahead and hope for the parents of the next school shooting victims to be NRA members? I mean, if you REALLY want the message to hit home — oh, and think of the IRONY if it were to take place in a gun-free zone! Woo hoo!!!

    It’s stunning — but, unfortunately, not surprising — how full of hate one person that claims moral superiority can be.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    We do have Gun laws, but they don’t work as good as THE SECOND AMENDMENT! Jawamax 8<{D}

  • โš”Christophuhโš”

    Never heard of her. She looks like some insane rich woman you would see at a liquor store at 11am.

  • http://www.vanstry.net John Van Stry

    This reminds me of the co-worker who told me that people shouldn’t have CCW’s because he would just take the guns away from them if he was a criminal and someone pointed a gun at him.

    I guess he thought that getting shot four or five times when attacking the person with the gun wouldn’t hurt?

    Why is it that all the people for gun control know absolutely nothing about guns? Oh right, because they’re idiots.

  • dralfredbellows

    Oates’ response would be great if criminals would only follow the rules. Since they don’t, she’s a moron.

  • Bob Cordon

    I dare say this woman is an expert on violence. Nature did great violence to her face. How can anybody that ass-ugly be taken seriously. Liberals have a disproportionate number of ugly people among them…ever notice that? Stupid, and ugly.

  • chesterarthur

    She wasn’t being ironic?Oh,wait,the ironic ones are the people who call Oates a talented writer of fiction.

  • hatsylady

    What a sicko freak. She’s starting to resemble The Bride of Frankenstein.

  • http://twitter.com/Right_Gun Right Gun

    Y’know, the thing that goads me is that somebody like this loathesome creature says things like this without, apparently, caring that it could lead to some nasty consequences. A lot of these so-called “progressives” don’t strike me as particularly stable. Frankly, I think people like Joyce Carol Oates are as big a threat to this republic as any of these jihadist imams whipping their whacked out followers into a psycho-frenzy.

  • Bobbwil

    Twitchy, why did you accompany this story with a photo of the Crypt Keeper?

  • http://twitter.com/yahneverknowCB yahneverknow

    Interesting. I have an autographed copy of one of her books from before she was known. I think it’s time to auction it and donate the money to charity.

    • Bobbwil

      Donate it to the NRA.

  • Jim McCormack

    Without guns,we would still be bowing to the Queen..Without protection from an over controlling government ,we’ll be bowing to Obama…When a firearm is used to kill,Sob Sisters want to take away the arms of the PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T DO IT…proving that Liberalism is a mental illness.

  • IBINAR

    And Joyce Carol Oats is??????????

  • Bigeddie173

    Pardon my ignorance, but who the hell is she and who the hell cares? She is obviously an idiot.

  • $1014973

    Lady looks more like John Oates.

  • Debbie Riddle Davis

    Way to go there lady…and I use that term loosely…Maybe her logic would be useful to her if someone were to rob her at gun point. Hey, I support gun bans…or maybe it would come out in our favor…Just sayin. I’m willing to see how it goes.

  • Chris Roberts

    This is Joyce Carol Oates latest tweet: “”Guns as dark magic & the humans who wield them mere agents. In magic, the wish turns upon itself
    & becomes the curse.”

    My response: A gun is a gun is a gun. Nothing of dark-white magic. Humans aren’t entranced by them, an AR-15 is not a fictional device.

    Oates has proven to grow more delusional in her tweets. She made a casual reference to the Holocaust and the apparently gun crazy town she lived in her youth, where people shoot things up. She is ill-equipped to engage in any conversation on guns.

  • regmgr

    Once a left wing Loon always a left wing Loon. What else would you expect from an overeducated liberal. They wish violence on legal gun owners.

  • Mara Schiffren

    None of this is surprising if you have read any of her books — they are deeply twisted and dysfunctional.
