#TheyDeserveAVote? No, They Don’t!

I’ve had it about up to my eyeballs with the Sandy Hook Parents. We try to be nice to you people since your child was murdered. We recognize that it’s a little hard to be objective, or even rational, when you’re dealing with something like that. But it’s gone too far.

They don’t try to sound like wonks or pundits or operatives. They just tell their heart-breaking stories, weaving in a demand for action that is respectful but forceful. As a result, senators respond to them as bereaved parents, not advocates.

“These are smart, articulate people, who don’t have a scintilla of Washington about them,” said Matt Bennett of the centrist Democratic group Third Way, which has been helping the families navigate D.C. “But they virtually cannot be denied a meeting. There are not many groups of people that can get a meeting with any senator they want, whenever they want.”

It doesn’t matter how smart, articulate, warm, and bereaved you are when you are asking to demolish my civil rights. At a certain point it’s time to stand up to you directly, and forcefully, to back off.

Get away from my rights. I don’t care how bad it hurts that your child got murdered. I didn’t do it, so leave me alone. Your children were murdered by a crazy person who broke so many laws that it looked like he was going for a high score in the Lawbreaking Olympics. I know that you are in pain, but you can’t take your rage at the killer and use it to attack me.

Then there’s this girl, Jillian Soto, sister of a Sandy Hook teacher killed. She seems prepped to become her generation’s Joan Peterson.

No. Something does NOT need to get done. You aren’t getting my rifle. You aren’t getting my standard capacity magazines. If you think the horror of Sandy Hook was bad, think about what a civil war would look like. Because if you try to take our rifles, we will fight. My rights don’t dissolve when you smear your sister’s blood over them.

I’m going to be called “uncivil.” That’s how the Left deals with everyone who doesn’t submit to their emotional blackmail. Well fuck them. I’m going to stick to the truth. And the truth is that I have a right to defend myself. I have a right to keep and bear arms to defend myself. And that right to keep and bear arms includes the right to own an AR15 rifle. And if you come to take away my rights, I will fight. And I won’t be alone.

It would be better for all concerned if you would go home, grieve for your murdered children, and leave the rest of us alone.

  1. Thank You! Finally!

  2. I ran into this on Facebook. One of my liberal friends posted it as a graphic. I told here that, no, they don’t get a vote on my civil rights–and neither does anyone else. You can imagine how it went from there. 🙂

  3. Tell them if they have something to say to me, feel free to leave me a comment here.

  4. I would klike to add this to what you said:

    If only one teacher at that school had been able to carry a gun to exercise his right to defend himself, instead of being disarmed by policy and threat of dismissal and prosecution, then maybe there would be fewer mothers crying and complaining right now.

    If there were two teachers and a janitor who were carrying concealed, it is almost a certainty that there would be fewer dead children, and one more dead bad guy. If ten percent of the staff were armed, then that crazy punk would not have had a chance, and he would have known it, and the whole thing would have happened somewhere other than at a school.

    You want to prevent this from ever happening again? Then what you want is to prevent madness, and what you want is something that is out of the power of any man to grant. Guns, knives, gasoline, clubs, and fists or feet can kill.

    How about supporting something that will mitigate the inevitable outbreak of insanity – allow the teachers and staff to carry guns.

    Think of this – every school carries out fire drills multiple times each year. When was the last time you heard about a fatality due to a school fire? I can’t recall a single one – maybe it just didn’t get reported. Yet for this rare, unlikely event, we devote time, budget, training, fire alarms and extinguishers.

    When will the pile of dead kids be high enough that you can see that we need an “insanity extinguisher” in schools.

  5. I agree, Sean. This is getting old. I’m tired of politicians trotting out an endless array of victims to push their radical agendas. Deep down we grieve with these parents and it seems harsh to say what we are thinking, but dammit, it’s time someone said it.

  6. Blood dancing. It doesn’t matter who is doing it. Its still disgusting.

  7. Remember, when they say they ‘deserve a vote’, only a winning vote is acceptable….if they get their vote and it’s a bust for them, there isn’t enough safety blankees in the known universe for all the temper tantrums that will be thrown.

  8. I couldn’t agree more
