Posted on 08/06/2013 3:17:31 PM PDT by SWAMPSNIPER
The world the people behind Mayors Against Illegal Guns inhabit seems to be mighty black and white. With maybe a slight green tinge to the sky. Mark Glaze, executive director of MAIG, believes that someone should only be allowed to use a gun to defend themselves if their attacker also has a one. In his opinion, the lack of a gun indicates that the attacker just wants to have a fistfight. Yeah, well, tell that to the two people per day in this country who are beaten to death with their attackers bare hands.

How about this advice: Shoot first and ask questions later.
What if they attack you with a pointed stick?
BTW, it's good to see you back on FR.
Pray for a termite attack!
or a Moose, one once bit my sister...
Thanks, it’s good to be back.
So this creep wants a 90 year old 100 lbs granny who has a gun should not shoot a 20 something 230 lbs male who is beating her and trying to rape her.
Just when you think the left has gone full retard and can’t be any dumber they turn it up to “11”.
If you attack me and you don’t have a gun you’ve just made a terrible (and most likely fatal) mistake because I do and I will use it.
Never pick a fight with an old man, he will just kill you.
How about Obama's son's quit assaulting people? Idiots!
Alices in Dunderland.
Virtually all people who honestly bear guns take a sense of very serious responsibility with them (sometimes I do wonder with police stories, but at least our private militia is that way). They don’t fire shots at people on larks! (And neither did Zimmerman... the idea that he led on an attack so that he could eventually shoot the Skittles kid is so fantastic that it seems the advocates of the idea are taking hallucinogens.)
MAIG is German for “retarted, sir” - right?
How is your knife-throwing accuracy? The victim doesn't know the assailant or his training,
Most of these idiots are so overcome with gun phobia that they just simply cannot be rational. Problem is, we shouldn’t allow the insane to take part in decision making, and they are.
The paucity of the anti-gun arguments should alienate not just gun owners, but anyone who appreciates a well-reasoned debate. These people are like children who take a stand then find the flimsiest “logic” to support it. It’s hard to believe some of them are adults, let alone people in leadership positions.
Those that have never been exposed to violence always tell on themselves when they start talking about issues of violence. They have never experienced the result so they are more likely to soft pedal the issue. Let one get their nose broken and come back and tell us what is acceptable.
My mobility scooter tops out at 4.5 mph, don’t count on me doing any running, even if I was of a mind to!
It is a spiritual issue (a kind of demonizing idolatry) leading to thinking disorder. Now sometimes blaming items seems to have some thought put to it even if that in fact is not the root cause of the evil, when the use is empirically seen to be usually to the ill. Most street drugs are that way and so most people agree with bans, even if grumbling about the side effects. But by now everyone and their dog should know that trying to cut down on “illegal guns” by limiting “legal guns”... just plain will not work. Unlike street drugs, you can defend yourself with a gun and as the chaos level in society rises the importance rises.
Or a bannana?
