Warning Stupid Ahead: Don't Get Your Gun Advice from The New York Times

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “Two things are ‘infinite:’ the Universe, and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the Universe.” ~ Albert Einstein

Several decades ago, media liberals (an absurd redundancy) fervently lobbied for a federal ban on “Saturday-Night Special” handguns.

SNSs (Saturday night specials)were ambiguously described as “cheap, small, and underpowered,” and those aspects made them “bad,” so bad that no American citizen should ever be allowed to own one.

We were assured this was all so necessary, because SNSs were, “… the preferred weapon of criminals.”

(Next, they’ll be saying, “Fords, the preferred car of drunk drivers.”)

In a recent NYT editorial, the latest generation of these same arrogant liberal clowns has exactly reversed themselves.

It is now expensive, high-quality, powerful handguns that need to be banned, and not only should SNSs suddenly be okay, but they must also be the only kind of gun American Citizens should be allowed to own.

I sure wish they would make-up their minds!?

Apparently, effective, well-designed, well-made guns, in calibers that will effectively stop violent criminals before they can murder and maim, are now unthinkable.

When we’re all limited to 22RF, fewer violent criminals will die, but more of their victims will.

That is obviously what liberals want.

NYT editors grace us with such pearls of wisdom, like:

“The bigger the bullet, the bigger the hole.” (Sure glad they pointed that out.)

“Bigger ammunition tends to fire with more explosive power.” (They never say where one can buy cartridges that contain this mysterious “explosive power!” Sounds really scary.)

“The shift towards more reliable and more high-powered guns has been contributing to the deadliness of gun violence.”

Liberals, of course, accuse all American gun-owners of being criminals, so to them, guns cannot possibly be used in a non-criminal manner.”

Accordingly, to liberals, any use of any gun is, by definition, “gun violence.” They don’t believe there is any such thing as legitimate self-defense, nor any other licit use for a gun.

Simultaneously, these same less-than-honest liberals, who piously (and so self-righteously) describe themselves as “nonviolent,” are selfishly enjoying real protection provided by our armed military, our armed police, and even their armed neighbors, as they cynically contribute nothing.

This allows them to piously “feel good” about self-identifying as “nonviolent,” while others, better than they, risk their lives daily against the forces of evil.

Neither our military, nor our police, nor most armed Americans rely upon 22RF for legitimate protection from violent criminals.

Duh!

“Who believe they are ‘nonviolent,’ simply because they benefit to the utmost from the protection of principalities and powers, never have to use force themselves.” ~ René Girard

    I knew this was a good article – but I sure got a surprise when I saw it was John Farnam himself who wrote it. I don’t care how much you think you know, or how smart you think you are, he’s still John Farnam and he’s probably forgotten more about guns than you’ll ever know.

    It should be a crime to even buy a new york times or a washington post. I didn’t capitalize either because I think they are irrelevant.

    Like hell, they’re “non-violent.” If I slap the shiite out of one of those obnoxious lowlifes (which would take more than an hour of slapping to actually accomplish), they damnably-well would hit back. Human nature.

    Bloomberg, Soros, the evil U.N., and America hating foreign governments fund the gun banning and hunting banning cults. Who knows, maybe they now own the new york times too. I remember when they said any gun under $500.00 was a Saturday night special and should be banned. Remember back in the 1980’s when the first Glock pistols arrived? The nyt said they were made for people to hijack airplanes! How stupid. Now Glocks are widely used by police departments. And don’t you hate it when they say stupid things like high capacity ammunition? What is that? Suddenly the gun banners… Read more »

    I believe that if they ever took all of the guns from honest people, they would then grant amnesty to criminals who still have guns and make gestapo of them . Then they would have back door control of them .
    Think about that .

    Bigger boolits = bigger holes? Land o’ Goshen!! Whould’a thunk? I smell a Nobel Prize here! They could have gotten the answers to that burning question and so many more from Marshall/Sanow and Ellifritz at the cost of two books.

    Yes the forces of evil, the criminals, which the left control gun groups support, period!

    When you disarm a law abiding citizenry, you foster criminal activity, and by extension, you too are criminals as bedfellows and your subversion of the Constitution.

    Let’s call this for what it is – an ideology coup to overthrow the Republic by whatever means necessary to complete their goal.

    22RF denotes the .22 caliber rimfire cartridge. Those being the .22 short, long, and long rifle.

    While I generally agree with the author’s position, I think we do our pro-2A side a serious disservice by continuing to equate conservatism with a pro-gun rights stance and liberalism with an anti-gun rights stance. Yes, by and large this is the breakdown, but how much of that is because we (and especially the NRA under Wayne LaPierre who set the NRA after many Republican causes) made it a liberal/conservative issue first? There are many Republicans who vote for bad gun laws and many Democrats who understand the need for self-defense and the right to have weapons to effect it… Read more »
