Proving that these people truly have no sense of decency whatsoever - and probably no impulse control or the most basic capacity for moral reflection - it seems comments to gun control discussions all over the internet have been flooded with paranoid, psychotic, "just-you-wait-you'll-pay" terrorist threats from gun nuts faster than moderators can remove them.  These comments are being generated by the kind of crazed, delusional human time-bombs who have been armed to the teeth and propagandized by the NRA and Republican Party over decades: Walking inferiority complexes who hate women, hate minorities, hate democracy, hate everyone who isn't staring back at them in a mirror, and need to not only possess but worship and adore instruments of mass murder to feel even the tiniest bit of security and validity.  

I'm tired of these perverts.  Tired of their homicidal narcissism and bully whining about how oppressed they are from behind their arsenals while threatening to assassinate our elected leaders, overthrow the entire Constitution other than their edited version of the 2nd amendment with the words "well-regulated" removed, and shrugging off a steady stream of mass-murders following directly from the circumstances they promote because it's no one they care about.  Tired of their lies and insane conspiracy theories.  Tired of their constant, teeth-gnashing, face-chewing terrorist threats of violent insurrection and ethnic cleansing if we ever dare to hold them accountable for anything - if we ever dare, in our "big gubmint" arrogance to inconvenience them in any way for the sake of our children's right to draw breath on this Earth.

And what really makes the whole thing intolerable is that these are the people who the NRA listens to, and the NRA is who politicians listen to, so in essence the entire nation is dictated to by people who are basically the heirs to the Ku Klux Klan.  That I will not tolerate quietly.  That I will not stand for.  I will never, ever be afraid of these terrorist bastards or try to appease them, nor will I tolerate any political leader who shows by any word or deed that they are doing so.  Every single discussion where one of these pieces of shit shows up is immediately verbally firebombed with exhortations to murder, mayhem, and violently impose their own opinions on a public that doesn't support them.  Well, whatever portion of this country belongs to me does not negotiate with terrorists, nor does it appease them, nor does it accept them as part of the discussion, because threats are not a conversation.  

These people in one form or another have been trying to tear apart this country and turn it into something evil ever since its founding, be it through secession in defense of slavery or hooded cowards hanging people from trees, and it's about time they were categorically ejected from mainstream political discussion altogether if they simply cannot live with the rules of being human and responsible.  One way or another, we are moving forward with gun control legislation needed to ensure that Americans have the right to be free of fear from the tyranny of warfare in their communities.  

If these raving psychotics want to make it all the more clear why such changes are necessary by acting out their murderous fantasies, they can go right ahead and accept the consequences.  Or they can reconcile themselves to the idea that America will legally compel some level of responsibility on their part - the whole "well-regulated militia" thing that the real, non-NRA version of the 2nd Amendment mandates.  I don't care how small your dick and/or brain is, Buford - your inferiority complex is not a right superior to the life expectancy and basic liberty of others.  So either pack up your arsenal and drag your handlebar-mustached redneck ass to Somalia where someone like you will get exactly the kind of liberty you demand, or else get with the program and start accepting your responsibilities as Americans.  We will not accept more massacres in order to coddle your selfish psychosis, and we will not be deterred from defending our families and communities by your terrorist threats.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I see that calls someone on this site a "gun grabber" or any similar wingnut comment.  This is a standard gun nut  term and usual accompanies an express or implied statement that the "gun grabber" should be shot or otherwise some kind of fascist upon whom violence should be inflicted.

    From the Urban Dictionary:

    Usually a loony left-wing nut, aka dumbocrat, who mistakenly believes that the removal of lawfully owned guns will also remove them from crminal hands.
    Despite the proven fact that banning of narcotics and firearms did NOT reduce their possesion amongst the criminals, Hitlery and the gun grabbers want to procede with more facist gun control schemes.

      over other people's lives, and then act like victims whose "freedom" is being infringed if an elected government tells them the rest of the country isn't comfortable with their having the power to kill dozens of people just by twitching their index finger.  They just can't comprehend that other people have rights - they think other people's fundamental human rights end where their fears and hobbies begin.  Sooner or later they have to grow up and wake up to their responsibilities or just GTFO.

        Recommended by:

        Nancy Lanza was among a cadre of 'gun collectors' who aren't collecting anything but an arsenal for that self-fulfilling day when society collapses around them.

        And every day, one or more of these 'collectors' snaps. They have their trigger event, and they make society collapse around them. With their guns.

        We had a multiple shooting here in NC Friday night. Man killed his wife, his mother-in-law and apparently their pets (charged with two homicide counts and cruelty to animals).

        Suffice to say that did not make the news until Sunday morning. There were more prominent multiple shootings even after Sandy Hook.

        And here's another terrifying stat: Based on average rate of demise, by late Sunday more children had died from gunshots than had died at Sandy Hook.

        And based on the stats, eight more kids on average will die today. More than 50 this week, and the week after and the week after.

        Most will be accidents. Perhaps adolescent suicides, too. That part of 'society collapsing' isn't really on radar just yet but should be.

        Some will just be in the path of men - almost always men - looking to collapse their local society with their guns.

        Circling back to Nancy Lanza: She might well have just been a woman with lots of weapons. Since women almost never perpetrate mass shootings, that might have been that.

        Problem is, she had a sons who one was the true kind of 'gun grabber'. That son grabbed her guns, killed her, and then took them out the door to collapse as much of society as possible with them.

    There's crazy people out there on every issue.  Just ignore them and talk about what you'd like to, and more importantly why.

    Whether or not they'd like to promote their policy, or attack you, it will be clear to an audience who has the reasoned argument and who is just an idiot trying to get their way through bullying.

    The beautiful thing about our system of government is that the bully eventually loses.  The thing that is sometimes frustrating is that sometimes it feels like it takes much longer for them to lose than it should.

    But they begin to lose their power if you simply ignore them.

      NRA and the gun industry too long, and they took and took and took, and eventually it got to the point where Bob Costas could be denounced for even the mildest comments.

      After the Oregon shooting (one of the other massacres this week) there was NO discussion of gun control at all.  The bullies and the thugs had won the debate by controlling the terms of the debate.

      Responsible debate requires recognition of one's opponents as reasonable people.  "Gun grabbers" and similar BS is not reasonable and inflammatory.   It's the kind of thing you can see in the comments at National Review and all over the place on Free Republic.

      Similarly, I would say that calling another commentator a "gun fetishist" would be on the same level, but I feel that a lot of that was a reaction to one particular recently-banned troll.  His departure may lower the level of invective around here so something reasonable could be discussed.

        Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone.

        Gay marriage is legal in some states.  Culture is changing so youths find the concept obviously fair.

        Two states this last election legalized pot.  Nobody, including the feds seem to think that's too big a deal.

        These battles happen in slow-motion, so it's a little frustrating to live them, but there's some things that just eventually happen because the cultural argument is being won.

        These issues happen this way because there's a cultural sense of how it just isn't fair, isn't sensible, isn't right to do them otherwise.  Culture isn't won like this by pretending that bullies have a valid point.  Culture is won simply by addressing what matters.

        Crazy people are running the show on the right wing for a variety of complex reasons, one of them being that it's easier to sell fear, paranoia, dread and hate than it is to sell information.  The commentators they have are more or less demagoguing charlatans.  Everyone knows it, The Simpsons makes fun of it, Jon Stewart's job is practically to point it out, and casual, 'moderate' people seem to be amused by that fact.

        Our system of government relies on making sound arguments, and having observers listen to them and attempt to figure out who's the most sane on policy.  Pretty much the only people fooled by Fox are partisan diehards, which is quite frankly, older people.  That's a problem that solves itself over time.  Albeit slowly, which can be annoying.

        Certain arguments need no serious rebuttal.  Does anything more need to be said?

        The only thing is, the Republican party is mostly organized and motivated around silly things.  Everything they do will motivate and organize their own opposition.

            Few people today would advocate for slavery or dueling.

            There have been significant changes in culture over time, we just don't tend to live long enough to notice all of them.  It's also frustrating that we're still struggling with slavery and animal cruelty, but at least those practices can only continue insofar as they're being hidden.

            Back in the day, this comic was controversial and almost didn't get published.  I don't exactly have much hopes for tomorrow, or even 10 years from today, but 200 years, or 10 centuries, when everyone that matters to me (or ever will matter to me) are gone, I have a general confidence that what will go on will be better.

    must be repeated again and again.  When a parent can't even send a kid to kindergarten without fearing that someone will show up with semi-automatic weapons and kill that kid, when a parent can't take their kids to the movies, when a parent can't go shopping, etc. etc. there is no other word that describes what's going on better than terrorism.

    I do not want to ban guns as that could make it even worse, but reasonable rules (real waiting periods, real background checks, licensing/training requirements, registration, and of course ban assault weapons.)

    In the next few days we will hear a lot of the apologists (even among us) say that it is mental health issue that causes these mass shootings.  Sure we have to address those issues, but even people without mental health issues should have these common sense regulations as their mental health issues may have not surfaced or, more likely, their rage at someone (spouse in divorce, boss, etc.) could easily make them go on a killing spree - it could happen to a reasonable person.

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
