The NRA is Smokin’ Dope
Per the NRA, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun…” Well, that certainly didn’t work out well in Uvalde, TX where 19 “good guys” (albeit cowards) stood around for 77 minutes waiting for someone to decide it looked bad for heavily armed and armored cops to hide while an 18 year-old punk ass kid slaughtered 19 children and 2 teachers. It’s not as if the kid was some highly trained Ninja warrior assassin. He had bought his weapons a few days before. He probably barely knew which end of the barrel the bullets came out.
I have several thoughts on this whole tragic mess but in the interest of brevity, I’ll focus on just two. First, to all the Rambo wanna-be “heroes in their own mind” punk-ass open carry proponents, the only reason you walk around with a big, scary looking 45 or 9mm on your belt is because the law won’t let you walk around with your dick hanging out. Who would want to see your tiny 2″ dick anyway? Most guys who open carry are simply overcompensating for their insecurities. Further to this point, think about showing everyone around you that you’re “carrying.” As a bad guy, you would be my first target. I’d walk up behind you and splatter what little brains you have across the nearest wall. If a “bad guy” with a gun came into my space, I’d first make myself very inconspicuous and then draw my concealed Ruger LCP MAX. Unless the RWNJ “bad guy” posed an immediate threat to me or my family, I’d stay hidden to avoid accidentally shooting another “hero wanna be” or distracting the cops/armed security guard.
Second, nineteen cops with AR15 style long rifles stood around for 77 minutes because they feared getting shot by an 18 year-old punk. Some may have been “just following orders” like Hitler’s henchmen’s defense during the Nuremberg Trials. From my point of view, that seems awfully chickenshit but, hey, I wasn’t there. I also don’t have the blood of 19 kids and 2 teachers on my hands. Some may have worried about their families but, to quote the Orange MAGAt on Sgt. La David Johnson, killed in Niger, “he knew what he signed up for …” Still others may have been waiting for just the right moment to throw his buddy into the line of fire and then rescue him so he could cast himself as a hero. See “chickenshit” a few lines back. Whatever their reasons and reasoning, it’s pretty obvious these cops weren’t “the right stuff.” In other words, they lacked balls to do the right thing.
Wayne LaPierre was a substitute school teacher before he somehow finagled his way in the top spot at the NRA. To paraphrase an old saying, “Those who can, teach, those who can’t, teach teachers and those who can’t teach teachers become blood-sucking GQP lobbyists.” This also shows how this spineless scum-sucker has been effective getting NRA members to follow him, after all, teachers are trained to talk to, deal with and persuade little kids who just want someone to tell them what to do. He “has the backbone of a chocolate eclair.” (Vanity Fair) This also explains the mental acuity of the NRA membership.
