    Jose Canseco comes out VERY PRO GUN in Vice magazine in response to Aurora

    Jose Canseco Hired To Write Weekly Column For Vice Magazine

    Teaser:

    “I truly believe, aggressively, that we have the right to bear arms.” the ex-big leaguer writes in his inaugural post. “We should be able to carry guns to protect ourselves. Period.”
    It's a shot article, I recommend reading the whole thing.

    Jose Canseco is a bag, the only reason he is now writing for this magazine is because he is broke and filed for bankruptcy, so he needs the money. I wouldn`t believe a word he says because he is going to write about anything that comes to mind so he can get paid.

    Yeah, I wouldn't care about this opinion if it were different than mine, so it's tough for me to be excited he's on my "side" on anything.

    Roid user, idiot, sell-out, or whatever you want to call him, he is someone that supports the right to own and carry a gun for self defense. He is also in a position to reach many people and hopefully convince a few that there is nothing wrong with it.

    If people can be swayed by Canseco, do you really want them on your side? Plus he says "bogus" and "blast them in the leg or knee". I want a better spokesman.

    It's a positive voice. I wouldn't care if it was Michael Bloomberg. Still a positive voice.

    He has no idea what defensive use of a gun is. From his article:

    If a guy breaks into my home and comes after me but clearly doesn’t have a weapon—and I know I can defend myself—no I won’t shoot him. But I have to make sure he doesn’t have a weapon on him. And that could be a problem in the dark, after I was just startled out of bed. So it’s a very iffy situation. But, theoretically, if I was certain he didn’t have a weapon and I could defend myself (in other words he’s smaller than I am), I would not use a gun. Even if he does, I’m probably not going to shoot him above the waist; I’ll blast him in the leg or the knee.
    Yep, he's still half asleep, it's dark, and he's going to shoot for the leg/knee. IF he's lucky enough to survive the encounter, the BG is going to own everything he has, including his steroids. Maybe we should forgive him for exhibiting his CA mentality.

    The thing is, do we want idiots who have no earthly idea what they are taking about representing us?

    I'm waiting for a much more dreamy celebrity to come out pro 2A to convince me.

    So now we get to choose who we approve of to speak out about pro-carry/2A?

    Like veteran character actor George Peppard?

    When it comes down to numbers I'll take all the idiots I can get on my side. Sure I would much rather have someone who had more credibility doing the talking but for the point of having as many people on our side as we can get glad to have him.
