So my favorite British 'adult entertainment' artist decided to open his mouth on this whole school shooting in Connecticut. He wants to ban the guns. Now, keep in mind he's a British citizen that lives in the UK, and as he keeps reminding us, doesn't actually care about our laws. But that didn't stop him from making an ass out of himself. Let dive in.
It starts here: jollyjack.deviantart.com/journ…
A deliberately vague question, phrased in such a way as to make light of the situation, by being cute and leading and thus ignoring the complex issues at play. Finally, it feeds on the emotions running high right now, while trolling anyone who actually gives a crap about gun laws by leading one to believe that the outdated constitution is what caused the deaths (not the man holding the gun).
If an aspect of your culture, made legal by an outdated document, leads to the injury or death of fellow citizens: should the law be changed?
So where does this lead me. Well he's a troll. Pure and simple, its intellectually dishonest. He wants to talk about American gun laws, but doesn't at the same time. So instead of talking about gun laws in a direct question like, "do you think america should ban guns?", he starts with the fundamentally bogus idea that our constitution is outdated and THAT'S why we've got a little over two dozen dead children.
He then gets a shitload of negative comments and then says this: fav.me/d5ohdtm
Let's just go over what I posted yesterday: I voiced that I have no opinion on guns in America, because I don't live there and as such; don't care. I said that I, personally, am afraid of guns and think they're industrial killing machines. And I posed a vague, hypothetical question that could have been applied to any situation where an old law/doctrine is in effect.
That's it. Nothing more. Harshest word in there was "change" followed by a question mark. Not "ban", not "make guns illegal" and certainly not "outlaw free speech and trial by jury", which some people with a slightly looser grasp on reality seem to think go hand in hand with owning the firearms I said I don't care about.
Well, today, I am going to post an opinion: if you're the kind of insecure, paranoid little twit that flies off the handle when someone poses a simple question, and who holds weapons and the laws that permit them with such religious reverence that you perceive that question as nothing short of an inexcusable, blasphemous attack, you probably shouldn't be trusted with a pointed stick let alone a gun.
Get a grip.
Wow, fuck me with a broken broom stick and twist. Let me get this straight. You lead with a deliberately vague poll question that everyone saw through. Backpedaled afterwards after negative feedback. And then finally compared everyone that doesn't agree with gun control laws and have GOVERNMENT AND INDEPENDENT AND POLICE STATISTICS TO BACK THEM UP, to "paranoid little twits" and "religious fanatics."
Thank you so much, because I love being labeled a religious fanatic for actually caring enough to do research.
And lets drop the bullshit on one more item RIGHT FUCKING NOW. Gun laws are
about banning guns.
Since you want to step in our dirty laundry. I recently ordered some of the new prototype bio-film pint glasses pubs are going to start using to see what all the fuss was about. I never knew you Brits had such a huge problem killing and maiming each other while drinking beer. To the point where your Parliament is/was trying to pass laws banning the pint glass. Since your healthcare is government funded, the huge number of glassing cases was putting an undue burden on the system. So now, you all will have to drink out of bio-film covered glasses because you can't seem to figure out how to drink beer responsibly without killing each other. Bravo. Hang a sec, where's my gun. I might need it if I go into one of your pubs. I might get glassed.
side note: you brits have a word for 'getting smashed in the head with a pint glass resulting in severe disfigurement and sometimes fatal cuts and lacerations.' Glassing. But what do I know? I'm just an ignorant stupid American twit with delusions of religious fervor, blindly holding my gun to my chest while reciting the holy gospel according to National Rifle Association.
