I call this “debunking” of Robinson a passionate defense and hope it won’t be taken as armchair quarterbacking Lauren Southern. Watching the man lie with impunity and bombast over her, I could fight the urge to respond no more than a shark could ignore chum in the water (especially when I noticed more than once online, this interview had been titled, “Lauren Southern Owns Jeffrey Robinson in gun control debate,” or “Destruction of a Gun-control advocate,” or similar). But what Lauren DID succeed in doing? Well, that went way beyond my very short-fused pay-grade! By virtue of her calm cool refusal to sling back mud even as her attacker pelted her, she revealed over and over, in living HD color, Robinson the “intellectual” as just one more angry, bug-eyed, virulent yet vacuous, and, what will prove in the end to be a magnificently impotent voice for Gun-Control.
I thought that this picture from last August was quite fetching…but somebody on Twitter disagreed. By the “inside and out” part he’s either affirming I’m a cis-female, or just that I’m Bad-to-the-Bone. 🙂
Many businesses in Texas seemed to take little notice of concealed-carry permittees over the years. Today, January 1st, 2016, it’s a different story.
A tyrant of sorts (Bloomberg? Everytown? Moms Demand Action? Fill-in-the-blank Against Guns?) has somehow awakened them to the “threat” that we personal-defense folks seemingly pose to them and their other clientele. With the chimes of New Year’s not yet faded, we wake to discover some of our favorite shops and theaters no longer welcome we the Free People, we the Citizen First-Responders. Not only have these places posted the new 30.07 Open-Carry Firearms’ Prohibition, but have added the 30.06 Concealed-Carry Firearms’ Prohibition where previously none was to be found.
It is a sad day when one thinks they are gaining a Freedom (clearly it is a “privilege” or it would have been there all along) only to witness a measure of earlier Freedom+Safety snatched away. The irony (and let’s hope it’s coming from merely naivete) is that those professing the desire to “protect” the innocent who frequent their businesses have now left them more vulnerable than ever.
I am tired of anti-Liberty types trotting out suicide stats, unsupervised toddlers – with idiot-parents – killing fellow toddlers, “other countries with no guns having no gun crime,” etc. Thomas Jefferson called the concept “rightful Liberty” and as in so many other things, he said it best, so forgive my meme-i-fication.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” Samuel Adams
I’ve decided to start posting some of my “Liberty fiction” instead of sitting on it for contests. It’s way too politically-incorrect for most literary publications or websites, anyway, being about GUNS and POLITICIANS and BLOWING-UP Washington D.C. and all.
Because if he wasn’t already dead his Connecticut “lawmakers” chipping away at Liberty like they just did (and have been diligently plotting and planning at since mid-December) surely would have broken his heart.
