    Seattle 'gun violence summit' and you weren't invited

    Attention Seattle area members:

    Gun safety: a ‘Seattle summit’ today, a Florida class Saturday

    Florida Congressman Ted Yoho was taking flak yesterday for his upcoming Saturday gun safety event, in his district, that promotes genuine firearm safety while today in Seattle, there is a “Gun Violence Prevention Strategy Summit” that will likely be portrayed as a “gun safety” event when it is really all about gun control.

    He is already being accused of callousness because this Saturday marks the first anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy, which is being exploited by gun prohibition groups for whom “safety” is spelled “b-a-n.”
    Progressive new speak at it's finest. Gun control equals "common sense gun safety legislation" and responsible gun owner means "one who keeps their gun stored, unloaded, at a government operated target range".

    For those who are brave, take a look at this diatribe. Warning, contains course language directed at pro 2A rights believers. Make sure your sitting down and your last meal is well digested least you puke it up.

    Well well this guy does not know me and he has no idea how many that were close to my have been taken from me. I am stating right now that several were shot and it was not the gun it was the person that used it. I have lost friends and a family member to a drunk driver again it was not the car or the bottle that did the killing was done by a person. Now this person that has such a great command of the English language is telling me what I know. Let me say that I know that this person should not even be allowed to have a plastic knife. I was not shocked by verbalpaintball it just makes me aware that they are out there and breeding now that is truly scary.

    Seattle is considered even more Communist.. sorry, Progressive than even San Francisco. I'm not surprised by the caring ,nuanced and tolerant tone of our Leftist betters. They care deeply, dontcha know? After all, when the revolution comes , we'll all cheer them and their genius..

    "We" are doing something wrong. Im not sure what it is, but I know that the way this is playing out, that eventually we lose.

    We are losing too many people that we dont speak to. Lots of those starbucks sippin *ricks can be turned around to our sides, but we are essentially "at war" with them.

    They think we are a mixture of backwards rednecks, or some gun fetish people who drool while stroking their AR 15s. We of course dont think to highly of them, either.

    BUT, fun is fun. Lots of those Latte sippers love paintball, or airsoft, or shootem up video games. Or even laser tag. If we could find a way to get them to shooting ranges, I bet a large % of them would be hooked, and we would have some serious numbers build up on our side.

    Lets all be honest, probably none of us got "into guns" because we wanted to support the 2nd Amend. We enjoy shooting, hunting, and the right to protect & defend ourselves and our families. So while the Constitutional Argument certainly needs to be made, getting "our numbers up", probably depends on us being viewed favorably, and what we do being seen as being "Cool & Fun".

    Feel free to jump in and say what you think.

    What I don't understand is why they don't have a "violence summit"? Do they not care about the around 8,000 people killed yearly by something other than a firearm?

    Why should I, personally, be upset about what this loud mouth punk thinks about me? He is just another anti like those that we constantly have to fight against but I couldn't care less what he thinks about me. He's nobody.

    I recently attended a similar event, hosted by the League of Women Voters. It was a lecture, with not a true 2A advocate to be seen anywhere on the panel of "experts".

    Gun control and hatred of liberty by any other name is still exactly that.

    The gun-grabbers are gunnin' for ya. Don't ever doubt it for a second.


    Thank you, Dave, for the write-up.
