Why do gun control advocates seem like bottom-feeders after mass shootings?

Why do gun purchases spike after mass shootings? -

Nicole Hockley lost her 6-year-old son, Dylan, in the 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. On the day of Dylan's memorial, the National Rifle Association issued a statement about the shooting that left 26 dead, mostly children. 
"The Only Thing That Stops A Bad Guy With A Gun, Is A Good Guy With a Gun!"

Don't buy it:  Read on.

The Rash.

People keep dying, and gun control advocates keep bottom-feeding on the worst of murders.  So why do the anti-gun organizations (all of which are tax-free foundations) keep making the most vocal declarations based on tragedy?

Because this is where the money is.

EVERYBODY denigrates the National Rifle Association (NRA), a self-declared political nosebleed organization which unabashedly survives because of its PACs in support of the right to keep and bear arms ..  but nobody talks about the anti-gunner Political Activity Committees which similarly live to provide fodder for it's anti-Second Amendment constituents.

 "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," said the association's executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre.

That statement is widely poo-pooed by the Democratic community, but so far nobody has actually found a rhetoric which disproves the polemic.

And the sad fact is ... the Bad Guys With Guns community have nobody who can stop their horrific massacres ... not police, not FBI, not the Army,'

In the ultimate event, nobody stops the Bad Guy With A Gun except for the quiet private citizen who happens to be on the scene, has a gun, and perhaps had the nerve to pull the trigger on the Bad Guy to a well-deserved everlasting hell.

Although that's not always necessary, as we shall see.

We don't see it very often, but we see it often enough to quietly whisper:

 "I'm so glad he was there".

Admit it.  You said it to yourself, when "The Bad Guy With A Gun" was rampaging his way through a Thursday afternoon shopping mall, and the $6-an-hour mall guards were not to be seen, and the cops couldn't get there in time to stop the shooting, and this one little mouse guy just .... stopped it.

Right there.

It doesn't  happen often.  Not as often as we would wish.  But even once is enough.

Enough to let a mother go home to her kids, and hug them, and tell them "I'm all right".

Enough to let a clerk in an aromatherapy store go home to tell his own kids ... "I'm all right".

Hugs are important, and when you stop to consider that value, think about the clerks and jerks who don't  get to go home and tell their children .... "I'm all right"; often it's due to the presence of a Good Guy with A Gun.


Clackamas Town Center in December, 2012, Nick Meli pulled his pistol and set his sights on the shooter ... but did not pull the trigger because there were "too many people" in the area, and he was loath to fire downrange, at the risk of hitting an innocent with his fire.

No matter, the shooter saw that he was being aggressively engaged by an armed citizen, and rather than be shot by another he committed suicide by gun ... thus ending the massacre.

After action, Meli declined to exaggerate his role in ending the siege, only saying that he "didn't shoot", but did point his legal concealed carry pistol at the Active Shooter.

That was enough to end the fire.  The Bad Guy With A Gun shot himself rather than to face the fire of a Good Guy With A Gun ... whether out of remorse or determination, nobody knows.

No further shots were fired; it was sufficient that the Good Guy with A Gun was present, and actively engaged in the exchange.

So, Silly ass Liberal Commentators ... comment on that.

A good guy with a gun CAN prevail on a bad guy with a gun.

Nick Meli is just one example of what a responsible Concealed Carry person can do to make his community stronger than it was ... yesterday.

You don't even have to scare the children;sometimes you just have to be there, and be bold enough to be willing to do the very difficult job.

I'm not sure where the quote originated, but I think it's applicable here: "An armed society is a polite society." And today 95,000,000 gun owners did NOT misuse a firearm. But I don't expect the anti-gunners to notice. They've drunk their own koolaid and believe the lies they peddle as though it were gospel. In short, you can't fix stupid.

Very simple, once you have disarmed a people, they are much easier to control. The left is all about total control of a population.

"An armed society is a polite society".
Robert Heinlein said that in a book * that he wrote in the 1950's ... I'd go dig the book out of my library if the title was important.

Of course, you probably have every book the Heinlein wrote in your library.

*(It's actually a novelette rather than an entire book in itself)
