I hate to headline a post with such aggressive language, but put it up against the shamefully low standards we’re seeing on the internet these days and it could have come out of MLK’s mouth. Oh, and given that the good Reverend was a proponent of concealed carry, maybe it would have.
But that’s neither here nor there.
I thought about writing something regarding today being National Women’s Equality Day and the absurd notions of ‘equality’ so many have regressed to, but instead I want to talk about guns because, like women, they’re dangerous if handled improperly.
The University of Texas recently enacted its new campus carry law, permitting law abiding holders of concealed weapons to carry on campus. In response, students opposed to their own God-given freedoms hosted a “Cocks not Glocks” event, brandishing their rubber sex toys and penis-clad attire in an attempt to offer a suitable replacement for a firearm in the event of a life threatening confrontation.
Welcome to 2016 America, where greeting a murderous assailant with a gun is now more ‘absurd’ than waving a dildo at them.
By the way, a side note to all of the parents of these sexually insecure future leaders of America. If you were worried the gas money you’ve been sending to your babies was going to mostly booze, I can’t imagine how you’re feeling now knowing it was spent on this something I can’t google image at work for fear of my employment status.
In order to justify my hypothesis, the one where the campus carry protestors, hence forth known as the Dildo-Bandits (trademark pending), are enabling cold blooded murder, we have to use something that is apparently too weird for even Austin, Texas: logic and reason.
Why did UT Austin adopt this new campus carry policy? If your knee-jerk reaction to this is because they’re rotten Texans who care more about guns than the Dildo-Bandits, followed by marching around campus with genitalia on your shirt as an apparent stance against it, you’d be wrong, senseless, irrational, and embarrassing, to name a few words right off the top of my head.
I understand supporting non-violence. I, too, mourn for the death of innocent people. However, being against the legal concealment of a firearm on campus means you’d rather see your friends murdered than think there is a gun nearby holstered in someone’s pants.
It has to be completely out of sight, by the way, so you wouldn’t even know it was there.
For a simple case study that I’m sure the evil Texans running the University in Austin discussed at great length, let’s recall a relatively recent school shooting at Virginia Tech. In 2007, a single man (yes, college aged people are adults, not kids) shot and killed 32 people, along with 17 others who were injured.
This happened on a campus that, like most campuses in America, is a gun-free zone, meaning it’s illegal to possess a firearm on campus regardless of whether or not you’re licensed to elsewhere.
It’s not that Seung-Hui Cho, the savage cold blooded murderer that the Dildo-Bandits would’ve enabled, didn’t know that his guns weren’t allowed on campus. It’s that he didn’t give a flying crap. For whatever reason that I don’t really sympathize with, he had evil in his heart and he was set out to kill those people knowing full well what he was doing was illegal.
He destroyed 32 families, possibly many more.
If any of you are still leaning towards the side of the Dildo-Bandits, the ones who are bizarrely countering the admission of legally concealed weapons on campus with rubber sex toys, I understand.
America has been brainwashed into thinking it has a gun problem.
To this, I present the following points.
In Florida, since I have hard data on that state and my lunch break is over soon, only 0.00672% of concealed carry holders, or 168 out of 2.5 million, has committed firearms crimes. That means that 99.99328% of them are law abiding citizens. I am proud to say that I’m one of them and I’ve never come close to shooting anyone during a road rage incident or an office dispute.
Now, let’s say tomorrow there is a student at UT Austin who is a scumbag, equipped with a gun and evil in his heart, and storms into your classroom to shoot you and your friends in the head. Unless they have a paralyzing vibrator-phobia and you remembered to bring it to class, you and your friends will never see your family again and no law is stopping it from happening.
Say it’s a small class room and there are only 30 other students in there. If just one of them – could be more, but even just one – were a concealed weapons holder, had his or her firearm on them loaded and knew how to use it, would you rather there be a 99.99328% chance that they’re prepared to protect you? Or, would you rather deny the 99.99328% of concealed carry permit holders who follow the law their right to do so on campus and potentially save countless lives because it violates your delicate sensibilities?
It really is that simple.
Statistically, logically, ethically, morally, really any reasonable way to evaluate it, anyone put in that position would want the opportunity to defend themselves, or possibly be defended by another decent, law abiding fellow American, as the overwhelming number of us are.
To that I proudly proclaim, I am the 99.99328%, and if you’re not you’re supporting murder.
