Coalition To Stop Gun Violence And Common Sense

Yesterday I posted their derpy video about how Stand Your Ground law is the worst thing ever invented… then today I get sent this:

Yea read their response tweet over and let it sink in.  I really hope this “viewpoint” is just of the single idiot running the twitter account, and not the viewpoint of the whole organization.  If it is the viewpoint of the whole organization though that really wouldn’t surprise me I suppose.

It’s pretty clear what the tweet means.  If an innocent (women, child, man etc..) is getting raped, murdered, beaten, tortured, robbed etc.. and someone else has the means to stop it immediately by taking the badguy’s life CSGV would rather that not happen.  I’m assuming this statement of there’s also encompasses police.  Yea great idea… maybe CNN, FOX, NBC and what not should just advertise that criminals can do whatever they want and be assured they will not be harmed.  What a great world that would be.

I really don’t have anymore to write on this because I’m just dumbfounded.  There is actually a whole twitter argument they have (which you can read here) where they dig themselves an even deeper hole.

Coalition-To-Stop-Gun-ViolenceThese people live in a fantasy world.

Thoughts?

Turns out this spoof isnt too far from what they really believe. It was funny but after reading those tweets, not so much.

It’s a tough decision and an unfortunate set of circumstances when one has to take the life of another to save an innocent person, but these anti gun groups foster a mentality of victimization that is completely ridiculous and predicated upon a fantasy of a utopian world.

I doubt that their stance would last long if they were put into that situation. But hey, if they want them and their families to die horrible painful deaths at the hands of evil men, more power to them. They’ll just have to sue me after I’m done perforating the bad guys doing said evil things.

To be fair… they’re only Coalitionizified to Stop Gun Violence. Any other type of violence is apparently A-OK!

But we have to take them to task: based on other previous statements, they’re only against artisan, bespoke, hand crafted private gun violence. Your institutional, impersonal, mass produced government gun violence is perfectly acceptable to them.

“And guys walking the streets 24/7 with loaded guns clearly have nothing to do with children.” So if I’m not a child I don’t have the right to defend myself? I can walk around armed with the intent to defend my life or the lives of any innocent person around me should I deem it be necessary? What if I carry my gun while I’m with my children? Is it then okay?

Fuck you

I would hope that this view of theirs can be widely publicized. Get more media attention and really give them a chance to be exposed as rather short sighted and unrealistic. I take this to mean they are against police carrying and using guns. Or are they fine with cops carrying, shooting dogs on leashes and being able to defend lives, but don’t want me to to something about the man in my house looking to rape my daughter over my corpse?

i can understand someone being a pacifist, and against any violence, but i don’t quite grasp seeing someone being hurt and not doing anything about it. maybe they are fine with whacking people over the head with bricks, its just shooting them they are against?

You’ll never seen it widely publicized by the media because they understand it makes anti’s look very disconnected from reality. If the NRA says, “It seems reasonable to use violence to counter violence” the media would report “NRA believes there’s not enough violence in America.” Meanwhile these guys basically just said, “Violent criminals should be allowed to do as they please without fear of being stopped.”

Wow that says alot about his commitment to protect his family…I don’t think I could save my daughter from being raped,kill, etc etc, because I might feel really bad maybe even nightmares about putting someone down so you are on your own honey. SAD

I bet they have no problems calling a cop to save them with their guns in a time of crisis.

Really crazy how they seem to indirectly condone, or tolerate at least, the type of violence that would necesitate the use of deadly force.
