Salon Wants Gun Owners Shot   John Nantz | Oct 24, 2015

“So if you love guns…then you need to be shot. You need to feel a bullet rip through your flesh, and if you survive and enjoy the feeling—then the right to bear arms will be all yours.”

Salon is a widely known left-wing rag, a den for liberals to cobble together irrational screeds. No doubt, the writing process begins in crayon and on widely ruled hand writing paper, peppered with large chunks of unprocessed wood chips. It actually sparks a bit of nostalgia, since the vast majority of us left those infantile tools behind in preschool. However, liberalism is the creed of the eternally infantile. It isn’t a rationale but merely a collection of assertions; the intellectual equivalent of the fabled caveman’s grunting and wild gesticulating. It’s emotive and is, therefore, extremely popular with the TMZ constituent, whose intellectual development has been stunted by an unrelenting consumption of Kardashian trivia.

D. Watkins scribbles for Salon and produced a piece breathtaking in its psychosis. But, that’s to be expected of a liberal. The experience of the real has no bearing on the fairy tale world of liberalism’s dogma. It’s a Bizaro world where everything is backwards. Up is down because desire, not rationality, forms the basis for every liberal presupposition. But, just for laughs, let’s follow D. Watkins down the rabbit hole.

For most liberals, the issue of violence and mass killings in particular is a question of “gun violence.” Usually, the unstated premise is that but for the presence of a firearm the violent act would not have occurred. For any thinking person this is child’s play. Violence is triggered by the presence of emotion, usually hate. Place a hammer in a room with two amicably disposed people and murder is unlikely to occur simply because the hammer is there. But, this is precisely the argument proffered by liberals like D. Watkins. “Guns break apart families and ruin lives.” It’s laughable.
