Liberal Writer Claims ‘All Gun Owners Have Sexual Dysfunction’
If it’s fun, if it gives you pleasure, if it’s good for your family and brings people together- liberals want to shame you for it. There is so much that could be said about the nastiness of the liberal agenda, we could go on about it for days. So, in the latest news in liberal shame mongering, a writer (we’re using the term very loosely) managed to hammer out a piece of work entitled “How Guns Literally Go to Men’s Heads.”
There’s so much wrong with that title alone. For one thing, the word “literally” means not metaphorically or figuratively, but according to the simplest definition. To say that “guns literally go to men’s heads” means that guns physically travel toward men’s heads.
Of course, the title also implies that there is something inherently wrong with men, that being male is somehow a pathological state.
What the author tries to argue is that guns make men feel strong and that feeling of power causes them to commit violence. It’s an argument that is so stupid, so full of projection and venomous spite- it makes the need to be armed to protect ourselves from people that hate us this much all the more clear.
The author, Thom Hartmann, calls gun violence an epidemic. But he fails to realize that not only are the majority of gun deaths suicides, but more people are killed every year with hammers than with guns. So why are there no proposed bans on hammers? While we’re at it, cars, knives, and doctors kill more people by far than are killed with guns each year.
Hartmann writes, “When a man has a gun, he literally holds the power of life and death in his hand. That kind of power is extraordinarily seductive. With a gun in his hand, a man can look around a room, a building, or a public area and specifically identify who will instantaneously die and whom he will allow to live. It’s a power that traditionally has only been held by doctors, priests, police, and soldiers.”
If you could eliminate healthcare provider error you would remove the number three killer of Americans. But its guns we have to hear about, not duplicate patient records and surgical error. It’s sickening.
But the article really isn’t about how dangerous guns are. It’s about how dangerous men are. It is utterly unconcerned about the fact that the amount of rapes that are prevented by women carrying guns each year is estimated at about half a million.
Who knows how many robberies would occur if armed women were walking around with nothing but a key and the memory of a YouTube self-defense video.
In total, guns are used for self-defense successfully on average about 2 and a half million times every year. Those numbers are going down because violent crime has also been steadily decreasing since the 1990s at the same time as gun ownership rises.
But Hartmann would have you believe that violent men and cursed, demon-possessed firearms are magically attracted to each other.
He goes on to say, “If you are not male and have never carried a gun in public, it’s only an imaginary experiment, but science shows that simply handling a gun alters men’s levels of testosterone and measurably increases their aggressive behavior.”
The implication is that testosterone all by itself is some kind of naturally occurring biological weapon. This is nothing but misandry- the hatred of men.
While men certainly can be violent- the overwhelming masculine instinct is to protect those who are more vulnerable. That is why men overwhelmingly chose to become soldiers, doctors, politicians, police men, judges, lawyers and farmers.
Hartmann continues, “This is largely a male problem because men commit 85.3 percent of all homicides and 97 percent of all homicides where the shooter and victim don’t know each other. In the case of school and workplace shootings, the shooters are also more than 97 percent male.”
The implication is that if we can get all the guns away from humans with testicles, crime would wither away. Maybe he’s right. But even if gun control laws could actually separate evil men from the guns they crave- the inevitable result would be a tsunami of hammer crime. And we don’t know about you, but America doesn’t need another MC Hammer comeback tour.
