Liberals Seek To be the Good Guys With Guns

yosemite-samIn the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shootings NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said; “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.” As a Liberal, fighting the right-wing insanity that is Orange County, I find myself agreeing with Mr. LaPierre. But that’s likely where our agreement begins and ends. I consider myself a true blue liberal. That’s why I spend so much of my spare time devoted to, and writing for, this liberal publication.

But even with all of the work we do here at LiberalOC, I fear that if members of the right-wing noise machine are the only people armed during the apocalypse they claim will come as a result of Obama Care and possible gun control regulations, there may be a problem. From my perspective, the bad guys with guns in LaPierre’s analogy are conservatives who approach politics with a shoot first, debate issues later attitude. These are some of the people who are causing the uptick in gun sales ans explosion in ammunition purchases since President Obama won re-election. They are convinced that Liberals are coming for their guns first, and their Bibles second.

Just take the statement made by Concealed-Carry Weapons permit holder, and Los Alamitos City Councilman, Dean Grose back in January as an example of what I’m talking about. Grose commented on a Facebook post by Republican (TEA Party activist) Allan Bartlett about lines of people outside a gun show at the Orange County Fairgrounds. His comment was “Uniting America against Obama’s regieme one AK47 at a time!” (spelling error is his).

Even though their fears are unjustified, I don’t feel safe with all these conservatives running around armed to the teeth and me standing in a self-imposed “Gun-Free Zone” thinking I’m safe. So, as liberals are often accused of doing, I’m taking knee-jerk action to strike at this problem. I have decided to buy a gun. Well, not one gun, a lot of guns and plenty of ammunition to fill them.

I’ve never owned a gun, and I haven’t shot one in probably more than 40 years, but that isn’t going to stop me. I plan to start a gun club for liberals, sort of like a Liberal Militia, so that we can defend our nation from the tyranny of gun-toting conservatives determined overthrow our government because of Obama Care or possible of gun control legislation. I figure there is power in numbers and if we liberals band together in a circle and teach each other to shoot, we’ll have a fighting chance.

Liberals, we’re the Good Guys. If we manage to stick together, and not shoot ourselves in our own feet, we’ll have a fighting chance at keeping those Conservative Bad Guys at bay. Our motto will be; “The only way to stop a conservative with a gun is with a liberal with a gun.”

    Ok Chris, If it wasn’t such a serious issue I might be laughing, might.

    I hope you know IF you need to learn, or relearn firearms safety and proficiency you know who to contact for that. I’ve actually had one your friends out at one of our events and he felt very safe out there with the bunch of “rednecks” shooting, our firearms at a charity event… all you need to do is ask.

    While we might not agree on a lot of things I am fully inclusive when it comes to everyone learning to appreciate and exercise their Second Amendment Rights.

    Tomorrow there are several bills coming up in the assembly public safety committee, that shouldn’t be passed, that have to do with firearms. California already has so many firearms laws that trying to be in compliance with them is really tough sometimes. They make very little sense in the real world and frankly most of them show how ignorant lawmakers are when it come to firearms and public safety. Like the one that would make it a crime for me to let you shoot my ammo, in my firearm, while I was teaching you how to shoot, seriously, that’s how stupid some of them are!

    I hope that I have the opportunity to be able to guide you into responsible firearms ownership before California legislators make them ALL illegal.

      I can only think of a handful of people who I would ask to teach me to responsibly use a firearm. You are one of them. Particularly since, I don’t want to shoot myself in my foot.

    “.. if we liberals band together in a circle and teach each other to shoot ..”

    Now you have the idea Chris – kind of like a circular firing squad. April fool.
