God Bless Everyone.....even the retards
As many of you know, the Brady Campaign has some fun games on their website, including “Tests That Prove Nothing”
, “How We Fail As An Organization”
, and “Distort The Facts For Great Justice”
It has been said that in order for two sides to come to agreement, both sides must begin from a place of mutual respect. Name calling never solves arguments. However, I’m not interested in solving an argument. My sole interest here is to berate and insult for both catharisis and comic effect. So, let me just take this moment to say, Fuck you Jim Brady, you paralyzed asshole. I’m sorry you got shot in the head by some psycho. But being a victim doesn’t give you the right to enforce your agenda on the whole country. You should have focused on the one crazy asshole who should have been put away, but instead you decided to focus your fucked up agenda on the millions of other gun owners who didn’t shoot you in the head.
And fuck you Ronald Reagan for being a closet supporter of the Brady Bill. You didn’t have the balls to support it when you needed Republican votes, but you had no trouble coming out of the closet when the bill landed on Clinton’s desk.
Anyways, what was I saying? Oh yeah….the news.
Apparently Arizona, Utah and Alaska have achieved a perfect score on the Brady Campaign’s website for gun laws. By perfect score, I mean Zero. A lack of conceal carry permits, allowing guns almost everywhere, not having an AWB on the books, and a variety of other laws that actually protect gun owners has earned Arizona, Utah and Alaska a score of Zero. I guess this is the first time this has happened. No word yet on what the prize is, but I’m sure that it will be something nice, like big fat campaign contributions from both the Brady Campaign and the NRA to all relevant public officials which will likely serve to keep things exactly how they are now.
The amusing part about all of this is the criteria on which the states are scored, and the overall crime level of the big cities within these states. Contrary to both sides of the argument, gun control seems to have very little to due with gun crime, or overall crime. The amount of gun deaths per capita in each state is dependent on so many variables that its difficult to make any sense of the statistics at all. The consequence of this is that both sides grab stats that support their argument and hurl them back and forth like missles, hoping to destroy the other side with their obvious intellectual superiority. End result, stupid name calling and no progress.
It is true that guns are used to prevent a lot of crimes. That’s one of the many reasons why I own several and am constantly scheming to get more. It’s also true that some murders wouldn’t happen if a gun was not available to the perpatrator. How is a 110 pound emo faggot going to kill 13 of his classmates who tormented him? Cry them to death? No, he’s going to get a few guns and fuck shit up and then become an hero for the cause.
Now at this point I could go either way, offering up arguments for more gun freedom, or continue shitting on the Brady Campaign. I’ve already done the former, so I’m going to go with the latter.
Using Brady’s website, I could see that while Hawaii scored a 50 out of 100, they had the lowest gun death rate statistics of the 50 states, with just under 3 deaths per 100,000 residents. Fair enough. But curiously they don’t rank the District of Columbia, I guess because they are not a state? Or maybe it’s because DC has the strictest gun laws in the country and yet has the highest gun death rate in the country, at over 31 deaths per 100,000. New Hampshire limps in with a score of 6 out of 100, and yet is in 45th place, with just under 6 per 100,000. Here’s another strange statistic, New Jersey scored high on the Brady test with a 72 out of 100. And they also have one of the lowest firearms death rates in the country, at 4.9 per 100,000. Montana, on the other hand, scored a 2 on the test and pulls in at 13th in the nation for death rates, 14.5 out of 100,000. Now let me ask you, if you were looking for a safe and quiet place to raise your kids where would you rather live, Helena, MT or Camden, NJ? How about Illinois, which scores 35 on the Brady’s test. Right next to Kansas, which comes in at an abysmal 4 points. Exact same death rate at 9.7 per 100,000. Which also happens to be the death rate in Utah, one of our earlier stated winners with a Brady score of 0.
The point is that firearms deaths and firearms laws are not a good indicator of how safe a place is. The Brady Campaign doesn’t want you to know that. They want to make the argument as simple as possible with shitty IQ tests that ask loaded questions and rankings by state about which state is winning the race to ban guns altogether.
So fuck you Jim, your wheelchair and your ugly wife. If you put half as much effort into campaigning for effective drug treatment as you did into your frivolous campaign to end gun violence, maybe we could be celebrating lower statistics in poverty and crime rather than producing bullshit gun law rankings by state. Obviously you are doing something wrong.
