Whining, gutless pussies asked to take responsibility for their own safety, don’t like the idea much

January 27th, 2013

Predictable–and hilarious.

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office released a new public service announcement regarding gun safety on Thursday, January 24th that is getting attention for its bluntness.

In the PSA, Sheriff David Clarke says, “With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option. You could beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. But are you prepared?”

He goes on to say, “You have a duty to protect yourself and your family. We’re partners now. Can I count on you?”

Jacob Schneider is a firearms instructor at the MGS Group — attached directly to the Shooters Shop in West Allis. He is happy someone has finally spoken up about the need to own a gun.

“He is saying we are responsible, in a lot of cases for our own personal safety,” said Schneider.

Cue weeping, wailing, gnashing of teeth, tearing out of hair by the roots, flapping of dainty, soft hands, and soiling of Underoos:

“If he does not feel he is capable of doing this, and he’s not qualified to take on this role of public safety, he should resign and he should do it today,” said Jeri Bonavia of the non-profit Wisconsin Anti-violence Effort.

Bonavia says Clarke is asking citizens to become vigilantes.

“To issue a blanket statement that people should be out there, arming up, and taking care of safety matters that really law enforcement officials are trained to do, is just irresponsible,” said Bonavia.

The office of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said in a statement: “Apparently Sheriff David Clark (sp) is auditioning for the next Dirty Harry movie.”

Somebody ought to explain to these sniffing, sniveling polyps that cops ain’t bodyguards. Dry your tears, kiddies, and be of good cheer: just because all of you are so contemptibly lacking in what it takes to stand up for yourselves doesn’t mean there won’t be some other private citizen made of sterner, more responsible stuff around to take care of you when you need it. You might get lucky next time you’re staring down the hurty end of a beating, mugging, robbery, or rape attempt and be in the vicinity of someone with a little backbone, self-respect, and concern for the welfare of others.

But then again, maybe not. And if you dweebs are willing to trust entirely to that kind of luck, well, not all of the rest of us are. I know how horribly the shame of that must scorch your precious self-esteem, and how relentlessly that shame drives you to bleat all sorts of laughable nonsense seeking to establish that, really, you’re the courageous, manly, and morally-upright ones here–why, outright badasses you weedy, tofu-eating granola-heads are!–but…well, frankly, tough shit, Poindexter. Them’s the choices you made, and you gotta live with ’em. The rest of us…ehh, not so much.

And if you keep on trying to legislate all of us down to your level of abject, craven milksopitude to help you deal with the spiritual trauma of being confronted by your own pitiful inadequacies in public, all you’re going to get for yourselves is one heck of a lot more ouchies to cry yourselves to sleep over. Only these will come with largish exit wounds, some of the sucking-chest variety–which will take more than a few organic, free-range, transgender band-aids to fix ’em.

Talk about trauma.

The Sheriff’s riposte to this juvenile mewling is another good ‘un:

Clarke fired back with his own statement. It read: ”Several years ago a tire iron-wielding suspect beat Mayor Tom Barrett to within inches of his life. I would think that he would be a lot more sensitive to people being able to defend themselves in such instances. A firearm and a plan of defense would have come in handy for him that day.”

“Fired back”? Uncle Peter, my smelling salts!

Via Ed, who notes that the Fox report quoted above conveniently left out an important–THE important–part of the original PSA:

Clarke urges listeners to take a firearm safety course and handle a firearm “so you can defend yourself until we get there.”

An evil assault-weapon-gun safety course? No wonder these hothouse pansies are all a-wilt: the whole thing flies in the face of every Progressivist core belief like grackles on Tippi Hedren, from the competence (and the duty) of the individual to take care of himself to the horror of guns in anyone but the government’s hands.

Poor “liberal” cowards: just when they think they’re making real progress towards finally getting themselves another good fascist dictatorship going, reality comes along and gives them another cruel slap upside their empty heads.

    Every now and then, a news item summarizes the core of our sociopolitical malaise completely and accurately. This is one such item.

    It's an indispensable axiom of all thinking on rights and justice that a right -- any right -- is a right to use force: in the case of a natural (and therefore defensive) right, the right to defend yourself or something that's rightfully yours. It follows almost tautologically that if a man is somehow prohibited from wielding force in defense of his rights, he has been stripped of them.

    And of course, if he forswears the use of force in defense of his rights, he has renounced them. He has bared his throat to the predators.

    It is permissible to delegate an agent to do for you anything you can rightfully do for yourself. That includes defending your rights. But when no such agent is available, the responsibility reverts to you.

    Anyone who can't grasp that is simply too addlepated to be allowed outside without a minder.

    Obviously Mayor Barrett needs another can of whoopass opened on him; one wasn't enough.

    Not all of us use guns some of us are proficient in other weapons, and prefer them. I surprised a Lynx in a nature preserve while on duty as a security agent one night, I had a stick called a baton and I knew how to use it. Didn't have any trouble some animals are smarter than humans. Sometimes I think most animals are smarter than humans.
