Outgunning Gun Violence With The Goodness of Guns

Karen with gun. Goodness (and cuteness) in action.

Karen with gun. Goodness (and cuteness) in action.

The destructive and immoral policies of the radical left are enforced on American culture through a systematic abuse of language.

George Orwell understood that those who control language control culture. In his brilliant novel about the nightmare of modern totalitarian regimes, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Newspeak is the language of Big Brother and its vast propaganda machine through which citizen are turned into slaves:

War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.

When lies become truth, civil society is exterminated.

The radical left in America—Barack Hussein Obama’s Democrat party—takes its cues from the soulless, fascist regime of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.

The phrase gun violence is the left’s latest mission and assault against language. By joining the word gun to the word violence, all guns and all gun owners are demonized.

Of course, the philosophical root of this obsession with guns is the radical left’s rejection of good and evil. To the left—wedded to Marxist materialism and amoral moral equivalence—it becomes necessary to assign inanimate objects a certain amount of free will.

Thus, guns are bad—unless in the hands of the state.

It’s the same totalitarian philosophy that animates Nanny Bloomberg to ban 16 oz. sodas and table salt. Only the state should have the power to dispense such dangerous food groups.

As Seraphic Secret pointed out in yesterday’s post about the gloriously non progressive holiday of Purim, it was swords in the hands of good Jews that allowed the Jewish people to escape genocide.

We can just imagine Haman and his liberal Jewish supporters—today these Jews sing the praises of all the President’s Jew-haters, Hagel being the most recent of a long line—fulminating self-righteously against “sword violence.”

We who thrive on common sense, we who believe in the Constitution, who support limited government, and we who believe in good and evil, must reclaim language.

Gun violence should be rebranded as… gun goodness.

Or something like that. I know, it needs work

(Confession: I am bleary-eyed from lack of sleep. Yours truly is knocking out this post at 4 a.m., in terrific pain from a root canal that has become infected and turned me into a complete wimp. So, my ability to come up with zippy one-liners is kind of limited at the moment.)


Stories in which guns are used to protect and preserve innocent lives, stories which happen every single day in America, must be reported as widely as possible by those of us who care about liberty.

Via The Blaze

One suspect is dead after a quick-thinking 21-year-old man sprang into action and grabbed his father’s gun to fend off three armed intruders and protect his parents in Texas.

The Houston-area young man and his parents were at home baking a cake Thursday night when there was a knock on the door, KHOU-TV reported.

“I see a young boy and I think it is a friend of my son so I open it a little bit,” the father, who didn’t want to show his face or give his name on camera, told KHOU. “These guys push and out comes two more, they push me on the ground.”

With the father down, the suspects went after the mother, telling her to get on the ground. She ran to her bedroom, where her son was already grabbing the gun from under the bed.

“I just hear a couple of times, boom, boom, boom,” the father said.

The son opened fire and struck one of the suspects, who died in one of the back bedrooms. The other two fled the scene, but deputies responding to the call picked up two men matching their description and took them in for questioning.

The entire attack lasted less than a minute, the family said. No charges are expected to be filed against the son, but they’re not taking any joy in the outcome.

“One young life is lost,” the father said.

Comment Rules

Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    one of the kids i teach had a great idea – crate up all the anti gun liberals in the USA and ship them off to gaza. let them parade around pushing for rocket restriction regulations –
    “no more missles in our schools, hospitals and mosques! katyushas are not for kids! ”
    wanna guess how fast they’ll be hiding behind israeli soldiers with assault weapons?

    Interestingly, a number of county legislatures in NY have passed resolutions opposing the NYSAFE act.  Not all are doing so based on Second Amendment rights; some are citing economic reasons, others the paperwork burden.  Still that’s 20 counties opposed (about a third of the counties in NY) and about 18 more are considering similar action.

    Karen with gun. Goodness (and cuteness) in action.
    Noticed that Karen uses a revolver.
    (Best in terms of reliability.)
    Would suggest:
    Laser site, activated py the pistol grip, (so that there is no fumbling with the on-off switch).
    .22 ammo.
    A direct hit with a .22 in a lethal area, is far better than a miss with a cannon.
    The laser sight helps someone not afraid to shoot, to get it deadly accurate in short range encounters.
    It’s easier to hold a revolver still, and aim accurately,  with the relatively small recoil of a .22 than with a much higher caliber that tends to force the gun barrel to move upwards.
    If you are already going shooting, pick out the different calibers ammo that you can be accurate with, and practice to have effective ‘stopping power’ with only one hand, (as the other hand may be occupied with something live-savingly important.)

      Karen really likes the Ruger Vaquero. It’s quite heavy, therefore it absorbs recoil very nicely. Karen is petite, so the pistol remains nice and stable in her small hand. The 5 inch barrel is also a big plus in terms of accuracy. At that session Karen was laying down some very tight groups to the head.

    If you belong to the NRA – their magazine – the American Rifleman, has a full page of these type incidents, where a crime was thwarted by the actions of a good person with a gun.
    I am sorry to hear about your dental problems Robert – I have been going though something similar – when – in my daily effort to get exercise, I tripped on a sidewalk section uprooted by a tree root.
    About the only think positive I can say is the state of anaesthetics today – one shot in the gum by the bad tooth and you are completely numb.

      Bill: For future reference.
      Go to a gymnasium or fitness center. The company is good and generally safe.

      Yes, I love reading those NRA self-defense stories. Can you imagine if they were printed in the NY Times and the LA Times every week?

      I know, I know, beyond science fiction.

      I had to have two root canals. The infection has been a problem for two weeks now. I didn’t respond the first antibiotic so now I’m on a second. Hope this one works because this is, litrally, a pain.

      The NRA and the Blaze are so full of it. I have it on good authority from a high government figure that we only need a shotgun and we don’t even need to fire it at anyone – just stand on a balcony and fire a couple shots in the air.
      And since Andrew Cuomo doesn’t think we need guns that don’t hold more than 7 shots we would never have more than one criminal attack us at once.  We have some of the nicest law-abiding criminals in this country and they would never do anything that would make our fearless leaders look stupid.
      The gun range is nice but I sure hope Robert is teaching Karen how to step out on the porch and fire off her shotgun a couple times whenever she hears a strange noise in the yard.  After all, no one dumb enough to give that advice would ever rise to v-p would he?
