We at Twitchy have been using the term “gun grabbers” quite a bit lately, and to be fair, it’s not quite accurate. First, no one’s actually “grabbing” guns yet. (Hmm … wonder why?) Second, grabbing isn’t quite so much what’s going on as a steady chipping away of not just Second Amendment rights but reality. Piers Morgan invited Alex Jones into the spotlight last night to demonstrate to America “what a normal gun advocate is like.” In the meantime, normal gun advocates are quietly going about their business while being “outed” for following the law — something which makes them “assholes,” according to Gawker.

As the media go about using their First Amendment protections to chisel away the Second Amendment, a man named Larry Ward has launched Gun Appreciation Day. On Jan. 19, he urges Americans to “line up ‘around the block’ at gun stores, gun counters, gun shows, and gun ranges to protest the Obama administration’s post Sandy Hook assault on gun rights.” Those lines have already formed, but Ward appeared on MSNBC today with Martin Bashir so that the media’s bashing of gun owners could continue. Let’s hear what the “reasonable” people have to say.

Actually, it probably will end well. So, Gun Appreciation Day is too soon after Newtown, too close to the inauguration, too close to Martin Luther King’s birthday, and there’s a black man in the White House. Which date exactly would be OK with the anti-gun crowd?

    “Near” MLK day? The hyperbole never ends, does it?

    It is too close to an inauguration, MLK Day, Groundhog Day, Abortion Appreciation Month, The Cannonball Rally, Uncle Fester’s Birthday, Little Jimmy’s Bar Mitzvah, Hubcap Appreciation Day, Jonestown and the premier of “Business is Evil: A Bullshit Tale”.

    You’re just not “sensitive” enough, people. Try using some large-grit sandpaper on your whole body before you leave the house every morning. That way, you can “feel”, like a liberal.

          You are the idiot…go read some good old history books, go look at the past 20 years or more worth of statistics, compare the different crimes and the numbers of those crimes as various laws were passed or expired….the truth is, the more guns that exist, the less likely most people will not use one to commit a crime…they are too afraid they’ll lose, which they would, of course, and they don’t want to risk their so-called awesome lifestyle of crime and drugs and whatever else they are into…when you remove the gun from the law-abiding, the criminal has an advantage, but as long as the law abiding own the same or better weapons as the criminal, that advantage goes away and the criminal thinks twice about where he will strike…history proves this…

        There is a gay pride parade in each major city once a year, and different cities choose different dates, and as long as you don’t show up at a parade and act violently against people there you are free to have whatever opinions you want about it. Maybe your obsessive reading of all things gay makes it seems like it is every other week because you ~choose~ to read about media coverage of gay pride parades in every city.

      No not racist at all just plain out stupid and idiotic to have guns sold without background checks. Plain old stupid to have 100 round mag killing little children. Plain old stupid to not know the diff between 2nd amendment and a small arsenal that still cannot protect you if someone wants you bad enough. Simple catch your half drunk silly ass coming from a bar at midnight and hit you with a bat. Let’s face it America is not racist.

      • TheLight

        We already have a system for keeping guns out of the wrong hands. The Newtown shooter tried to obtain a gun through legal channels weeks before the shooting and was DENIED. We do not need new gun laws when the existing ones already work.

        • texaswc

          Sadly, he decided to kill his mother to get the weapons…not much we can do about that…but, yes, we do have a system in place…now we just need to educate people about responsible ownership, so many don’t think about their gun security…as Adam’s mother didn’t…

      • lainer51

        well, I will give you credit for one thing – you sure are an expert on “plain old stupid”

        • texaswc

          I do believe he covers a lot of history with that statement…gun crimes have been on a decline (murders primarily) .. but suicides rates are up…what does that say about society? More than you will ever figure out…thing is, violent crimes have dropped, other crimes have gone up and down…but the murder rate, gun crimes have had a decrease…do you even know what the number 1 killer is??? I bet you don’t…Do you know where gun crimes ranks overall?? I bet you don’t…and that ranking is not my numbers, that the CDC’s ranking, the organization tasked with collecting all that data….get a life, get an education, then come back and comment intelligently…

      • Baxter Ross

        Mass shootings and crime in general have been declining because of the proliferation of concealed carry. In states where concealed carry is harder, fun crime is a bigger problem. It’s very nearly black and white, just not the way you expected.

        • texaswc

          The only magazines I have ever seen that held 100 or more rounds were drums, and I never saw one being sold for an AR…I wonder where he got his info??…..oh, ya, liberal, biased, hateful, ignorant, media….and those in the government that haven’t a clue, too…

          • Shambhala666

            Actually there are a few different types for the AR

          • texaswc

            Drums? Haven’t seen any around here…would be nice to have 😉

          • SpinMeNot

            They are for the most part crap … I’ve never seen one that was reliable — they jam. Drum magazine and any cartridge with a shoulder are just not a good match, in my opinion/experience.

            This is why the M249 SAW/LMG uses the STANAG or belts.

            As far as I know, and have seen, the CT shooter was using standard 30 rnd AR Mags.

          • texaswc

            Crap you say? Well, phooey, I don’t want any then…I can change standard mags quickly anyway, experience 😉 .. Love the belt feed and the M249 was always sweet 😉

            My understanding is that the shooter only had 30 round mags .. though from listening to the coroner, or whatever they want to use for a PC title, he made it sound like an automatic weapon was sued by the number of round each child suffered…all that tells me is how long it to law enforcement to arrive….provided he was truthful about those numbers….one report said 18 died at the scene and 2 died at the hospital, which is puzzling since another article, which quoted a first-responder, one of the first on scene, said they were not let into the scene, plus articles stating all died on scene…so many claims and we really have no idea which is true anymore…sad…

      • Hiraghm

        Then we need to make bats illegal. Or drunks. Or maybe bars. Or midnight.
        The problem is, if all those things are so stupid, there is STILL only one way to change it; you have to Amend the Constitution. Unless you do that, you CANNOT infringe upon an individual’s God-given (not Constitution-given) right to keep and bear any arm that s/he chooses.

          • texaswc

            Anytime 😉 … One thing I have noticed over the years .. True patriots rarely take serious offense to things said (non-personal things), because they believe in the freedom of speech .. they don’t have to use the F-bomb, GD, and many other foul words every time they speak .. they generally are willing to listen and allow others to make fools of themselves, then they speak with common sense and patience, even though the “fool” just doesn’t get it .. get along with most anyone, or at least do their best to get along .. and more .. all in all, a true Patriot tends to be the type that researches, is willing to take criticism, constructive, and use that to better themselves, willing to admit when they are wrong, since in doing so, they DO learn something new, and oh so much more…LOL…and willing to give and receive compliments, hehehe .. take care, I’m sure we’ll run into each other on other similar articles 😉

          • $36544368

            Thanks! It’s nice to read a post that’s well-rounded and kind like yours. One thing I’ve learned…I have a lot of respect for people who say “I was wrong” or “I made a mistake”…something that took me a lot of years to do, and of course being human, I still struggle with that. It shows that a person doesn’t always have to be correct about everything. One of the greatest qualities in a person, in my opinion, is realizing that they’re not perfect…I know for me, not being perfect takes a lot of pressure off of me! I couldn’t stand being around myself if I were perfect. LOL! I think sometimes that the liberal friends I have are simply controlling people and are actually hiding a lot of insecurity…that’s why they have to be politically correct or use the F-bomb, etc…does that make sense? It’s like the louder they scream or the more swear words they use, they think that will get my attention and change my way of thinking to their way. I love my country…at least what it stands for and what it ‘should’ be…I do feel very deeply about the unfairness and the liberal saturation that I see around me…it can make me cry sometimes…but with each day there’s fresh hope and we have to just keep trying to make a difference and stand for the truth and the values that are precious to us…and as you say, I’m sure we’ll run into each other on other articles as well…and I love to give (and get!) compliments 😉 Thanks again!

          • texaswc

            I’ve been wrong many times, and learned from that .. I try to do my research before I post, or know my history, at least enough to answer to someone’s comment to start with .. I hate being wrong, LOL … but it happens 😛 … ooooooh, you said politically correct…ewww…never liked that term, it is anti-American in my opinion to be PC … I took an oath when I joined the Army, and even after I left service, after 6 1/2 years, the oath still applies in my life, and always will, out of duty, honor, and patriotism…I will never PC…I stand on the principles of the founders AND the people of that time…today’s country makes me feel that it could be that those that died to give us this nation may have died in vain, and that is unacceptable…The louder a person yells using profanities, the less I hear…such language is, in my opinion disrespectful and not requiring of a response…People have forgotten the principles this nation was founded on, from the liberties and freedoms we fought for, to the requirements, at that time, of all citizens being armed with at least 1 gun, more if they chose, and required to train periodically as part of the Militia .. every state had Militia Acts back then…this is why the militia was included in the Constitution AND the 2nd Amendment…people have forgotten this nation was never created as a Democracy, but as a Republic…limited government (federal) and rule of law…the states were supposed to control what goes on within their borders and the Fed’s duties were outlined in the Constitution…the Fed was never supposed to have the powers they have today…after some of my research and understanding of the militia clauses in the Constitution AND the 2nd Amendment, I believe ANY gun control law is unconstitutional…as do a very large portion of our society…and probably one of the saddest things is that most of the people that believe such and understand the history of this country and it’s creation, the reasons, and understand the Constitution, will remain quiet and not speak up, for whatever reason, though I feel fear is behind it…the parts of the Constitution that speaks of the Militia’s, the history as recorded, not just famous quotes, the 2nd Amendment, the Militia Acts at the time, which we don’t even bother with anymore since we have a standing Army, all guarantee the right of the people to keep and bear arms…at a minimum, arms that light infantry would use…anyway, research, research, research…study, study, study…these are the only way to learn our history and too few even bother…which reminds me, a bill is being introduced this year in Texas to require seniors to learn specifically the Constitution, as part of their Social Studies curriculum to be able to graduate, and if it passes it will take effect in the next school year…I hope it does pass, people need to learn and understand that most important document…the hardest part is making sure the teachers actually teach about it properly…take care, great discussing this with you :)

        A young man I met at the range a few months back was some kind of gunsmith/armorer in the Navy when they took the M14s off the ships in the mid 2000’s … he asked if he could squeeze a few off with one of my M1As, and when I said yes, he went to the store at the range, bought 40 rounds of .308 and I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to get him to give it back. If you’ve never fired one and get the chance, I highly recommend it.

Wyoming and I think Montana are introducing legislation this year to make it illegal by Federal authorities to enforce ANY gun control laws within those states .. curious to see how that plays out…They are even making it a crime where Federal authorities that try can be arrested … quite a bit of politics in those states, hope they pass them and pave the way for the rest of us to follow…would love to see my state do that…that’s the states standing up t the over-reach of the fed, taking their power back as guaranteed by the Constitution that has been taken away a little at a time by the fed…

    Be sure to ask your liberal acquaintances if they would like to join, ie. include everyone. Maybe not the 19th, but definitely offer to include them in a least one 2nd Amendment activity while they still share the same right. Just be careful. These people likely have never handled a gun, never had parents with guns to instil respect rather than fear, nor will they enjoy the experience if us insiders laugh at their first target grouping, and/or sporting clay performance.

    Have you hugged your 1911 today..I do …Maybe that’s why it has not attacked me yet.
    Besides it’s jealous of my FN FAL But sleeping with the FN is to awkward..Especially when the Benelli is watching from the corner of the room…LOL

      I haven’t fired a weapon since Vietnam, but believe everyone should have the right to protect themselves because the government can’t or won’t.

        That, and we need to be able to defend ourselves FROM the government, my friend. BTW, thank you for your service. My brother served in the Nam as well. Y’all are heroes in my book…

    A month after Newtown, conservatives will
    celebrate “Gun Appreciation Day.” Then they’ll honor the Holocaust with
    “Oven Appreciation Day.”

    No, we’ll honor the brave men and women that ended the Holocaust with GUNS.
    We’ll remember the victims of the Holocaust who were first DISARMED by a Fascist regime, rounded up, then shoved into gas chambers to die then put into the ovens you so blithely mention.
    Yes we’ll remember the ovens, the concentration camps, the gulags, the reeducation camps, the reservations, the forced marches, the killing fields, the mass starvation, ALL of which were brought to the world by GOVERNMENTS you probably admire; Leftists, Communists, Fascists, Nazis, Socialists.

      It is no different for the American Indians. When the US soldiers confiscated their guns, those that hesitated were summarily murdered. Then they were rounded up (since they were now defenseless) but that wasn’t good enough, then their food sources (like the buffalo) were almost completely inialated. Then that wasn’t even good enough, the US then decided to kill all of their horses (transportation).
      I see a correlation here. Subdue the populace by putting fear into the weak and uninformed (about their constitutional rights). The weak and uninformed allowing this to happen to others, not realizing their time is coming. By the time they begin to realize what is really happening then it will be too late. They will then become like those they thought the were punishing by being punished themselves by those they thought were their supporters. Only to realize then that the supporters are only in it for themselves and at the expense of everyone else.

        And that was AFTER we gave them guns….sad times in our nation’s history…Native Americans should have been left alone to live their lives and treated as people instead of the animals they were treated as…guarantee Natives would have been much better off today if we had done that…but your points are spot-on…

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Liberal logic:

    Jan is too close to MLK (insensitive racists!)
    Feb is too close to Valentine’s (remember that massacre?)
    Mar. is too close to Easter (killing rabbits?)
    April is already full of fools (with guns!!??)
    May is too close to Cinco de Mayo (we’re a big host, or didn’t your notice?).
    June, July, August is summer and there are too many children out of school.

    September is too close to Labor Day. (BHO said working class people deserve better!)
    October is too close to Halloween. (People in masks with guns is scary).
    November is too close to Thanksgiving (that other racist holiday).
    December is too close to Christmas (and the 1st anniversary of Newtown).

    So you gun people have to find another month to have your appreciation day.

    • http://www.shockandblog.com/ Jay McHue

      Oh, you missed an obvious one with July and August. Obumbler’s b-day is the beginning of August, so both those months are covered by that.

    What a joke, using MLK as an excuse NOT to have gun appreciation day. MLK was a staunch supporter of the right to keep and bear arms. He applied for and was denied a concealed carry permit, so, he kept an arsenal at home and was surrounded by armed men. These Libs are very good at rewriting and twisting history to support their Lord & Saviour’s chipping away at our Constitution and G-d given rights. As a Jew, I can say with great personal knowledge, NEVER AGAIN! I will NEVER AGAIN allow a government to strip my rights so that I am able to be carted away like cattle. NEVER AGAIN will I be a victim of an abusive government bent upon wiping me and mine out of existence. NEVER AGAIN will I sit back and wait instead of fighting back. I suggest ALL people of ALL faiths adopt this attitude or else you too will be praying for the souls of MILLIONS of your people brutally murdered by an oppressive government.

    • fmahoney

      Your talking garbage, God Given Rights??? go back and read the 2nd amendment. Guns cannot protect you.

      • texaswc

        Yes, God given rights….the right to defend ourselves and our families, as well as those around us….a natural right as our founder’s of this nation saw it…guns are a tool USED to protect, nobody that is pro-gun has ever once implied the gun itself magically protects whoever has it…unlike the media and liberals that keep acting as if the gun itself is responsible…laughable…people are responsible…

      • SpinMeNot

        No, you are talking garbage, as usual. According to research done by Kleck & Gertz @ FSU in 1994, Guns were/used defensively 2.5m times a year in the US. Read the paper, I’ve linked it below.

    Already we’re seeing what a second term – with the Prevaricator-in-Chief unbound by re-election concerns and Eric Holder upholding justice* – will look like. Folks foolish enough to have registered their weapons will be shamed and otherwise compelled to turn them in. Industry will be hammered by taxes and regulations. There will be further efforts to determine what folks can buy and consume. While the focus will be on the troops coming home, the drone wars will continue.

    The good news is that the next four years will damage the Democrats, and the GOP/Washington Generals, and the federal government, and government generally, and the Demedia.** The bad news is that America may be unrecognizable by 2016, and beyond the point of restoration to something like the Founding Fathers intended.

      Unfortunately there are some who, by virtue of the economic “boom” this president has foisted on this once-and-once-again great nation, find themselves having to accept those benefits even though it goes against every fiber of their being while they search in vain for a job. I hold them in much higher regard than those who use it as their main source of income…but you’re bloody well right about the leeches and slugs!!!

    I can just imagine what the left is going to say about Spring City, Utah (Pop: about 1000).

    The town council wants to make sure every head of household has a firearm and knows how to use it, and they want to give school teachers training with guns too.

    Obama’s vision of America is one that will not include safety of the citizens. He cannot save 4 innocent lives in Benghazi, he could not secure the release of Hammer in Mexico, he ignores the physician in prison that helped serve Bid Laden on a platter. No one should look to the government to protect their families. There is a reason why so many are concerned and stockpiling weapons. They know the harsh reality that only they can protect their families!

    Every single home in Switzerland is equipped with a gun, many of them military grade weapons. It is a requirement there that every citizen train in their use and safety. Why? Because Switzerland is one of a handful of nations that has no standing military.

    Any guesses as to what the violent crime rate in Switzerland is?

    ZERO.

    Did the invention of semi automatic guns make a difference?

    Do biological chemical weapons make a difference?

    If the 100 round mags don’t make a diff let’s do the civil war over.

    Those in the south will have single shot revolvers and rifles

    Those in the north will have fully automatic and semi automatic weapons and 1,000 round 50cal machine guns

    Let’s see if it makes a different

    And AGAIN righties STEP IN IT BIG TIME, you are having a gun appreciation day not even a month after the violence in Conn??? Really? REALLY? Then to put the cherry on top you are having it on MLK day? Really? REALLY?…. No wonder righties are becoming more and more hated with every year, the problem is YOU GUYS DON’T THINK, you think you are being patriotic or whatever you want to call it, but it’s really just being ignorant to what’s going on around you and basically coming up with a winning message that will let most American come to your side…. and all of this nonsense like GUN APPRECIATION DAY will be the demise of the right wing in America as we know it.

      Worry about your own little clan. Concern trolling on our behalf by a moron not only comes across as half-assed, but stupid.

      Go back to your buddy, “Skippy’s” house, toke the bong and celebrate that you were able to scratch together enough cash to buy that little ionized air-cleaner, so his mom doesn’t smell “the kine”.

      Welcome a new day, tomorrow, and roll off the Batman sheets with a fresh new sense that “this may be the day I wake up and smell the Constitution of These Great United States of America”.

      Until that’s accomplished, you’ve done nothing more than drool the “Useful Idiot” pablum, for which you’re applauded amongst the drones of hatred.

      Another tip: Tell “Skippy” to take a shower.
