“Colorado Democrat Says Self Defense Is ‘Absurd’ and ‘Frivolous’”
How ridiculous is this notion that one carry a fire arm for “self-defense.” The truth is — and we all know this — you can’t protect yourself from hardened, predatory criminals, many of whom are, well, you know — dangerous and aggressive minorities. Best to just shit yourself and hope the stench drives them off. Or, if you’re being raped, tried to pee on your assailant. On the off chance you can’t reach your rape whistle, naturally.
But defending yourself? Who would ever dream of such a thing! I’ll tell you who: Hillbilly wannabe soldiers, white TEA Party militia-types and their swole, nasty biker women, that’s who! Ugh. How gauche.
Want protection? Let them eat state-funded bodyguards!
Colorado’s House Majority Leader Dickey Lee Hullinghorst slammed self defense in a recent interview, calling it “absurd” and “frivolous” [...]
Hullinghorst made no mention of Colorado’s famous case Castle Rock vs Gonzales which went all the way to the Supreme Court and established that law enforcement (in this case, police in Castle Rock, Colorado) have no legal obligation to protect your life.
Well, why would she even have to? It’s clear that once you take the guns out of the hands of citizens, gun crime goes away — and then there’s no real need for all this hypermacho self-defense non-sense.
I mean, shit. What’s the wort that can happen to you? You get rounded up and put in gulags, or spread like mulch around killing fields, or wind up the smokey flavoring in a giant German pizza oven?
How absurd. How frivolous! And besides, if you really need protection, Dickey Lee Hullinghorst will be happy to throw her 130 lbs of squat elderly fury in between you and your assailant. Provided the two of you make an appointment first.
Remember: in cases of self defense, “statistics aren’t on [your] side”.
Which is precisely why I don’t get baseball: batters failing 70% of the time are rewarded with multimillion dollar contracts, when what they really should be doing is giving up entirely, the odds being so stacked against them each time the come to bat.
Absurd and irrational. And frivolous. Mustn’t forget the frivolity.
