It’s interesting how the stupidity of those that hate Christianity, America and the protections of freedom afforded Americans is on display daily in various newspapers, magazines and on a myriad of websites. Of note, is Salon.com, who recently hosted an article by D. Watkins on Friday, in which he wrote, “I believe that being shot should be requirement [sic] for gun ownership in America. It’s very simple.”
Well, in return, I believe that those who write such asinine articles as Mr. Watkins should be required to be taught the Constitution.
Watkins wants to do an end run around the Second Amendment by attacking bullets. He made an appeal to Chris Rock, a filthy mouthed no good actor, who said, “We don’t need gun control. We need bullet control––if bullets were $5000, people would think before they shot some one! You gotta really piss someone off for them to dump $50,000 worth of bullets in to you!”
Meanwhile, Rock was summoned to the heavily guarded White House to support Hussein Obama’s gun control package in 2013, and I’m sure he probably had armed guards. So, like everyone else, I simply say, “Lead the way Chris and Mr. Watkins, start making sure each of the bullets in those who protect you are paid for out of their salary at $5,000 each.”
That won’t happen though and that isn’t where Watkins ends his statement. That’s just where it begins, and note, it begins with lawlessness (attacking the Law).
“Rock was definitely on point, $5000 bullets would be great but I’d take it a step further––I believe that being shot should be requirement for gun ownership in America,” Watkins wrote.
So Mr. Watkins, would you also support that for America’s veterans who in many cases have taken more than a bullet? I ask that because it seems Hussein Obama and his criminal administration are going after those who has faithfully served our country. I’m betting Watkins would retract that claim if he was pressed to live in the real world.
Watkins, a former drug dealer turner teacher of stupidness, went on to claim, “”You need to have gun, like taking selfies with pistols, can’t live with out it? [sic] Then take a bullet and you will be granted the right to purchase the firearm of your choice.”
“If we could successfully implement this rule, I guarantee the mass shootings will stop,” he said. Whoa! Guarantee? Surely you jest Mr. Watkins. Can we get that in writing? Could you also make yourself monetarily liable for your “guarantee”? There is a reason that if you put every bullet on sale at $5,000 and made people take a bullet before acquiring a firearm that all of that would not stop those who want to commit crime from committing it. It’s because they have a wicked heart.
Watkins, who doesn’t live in the real world, but by his own admission only gets his information from “watching cable news,” says that “our country isn’t’ responsible enough for firearms.” This guy even equates owning a gun to slavery! I kid you not!
“Gun praisers are just like the people who were in favor of slavery back in the day,” he wrote. “The elite, lazy and ignorant who weren’t being beaten, raped or in the field doing the work, so they were perfectly okay with involuntary servitude, which is a problem and why I think gun owners need to feel more––they need a taste of the other side.”
So, what is his peaceful solution to the problem? Like every mentally ill liberal, it’s to kill gun owners.
“So if you love guns, if they make you feel safe, if you hold and cuddle with them at night, then you need to be shot,” he wrote. “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.”
Well, Mr. Watkins, perhaps you could use a lesson in grammar and spelling before you are allowed to write an article and exercise your free speech, eh? Remember, this is guy who claims to hold a master’s in education from Johns Hopkins University and an MRA in creative writing from the University of Baltimore. Granted, I don’t have any of those degrees and I make mistakes in grammar and spelling, but seriously, shouldn’t that apply to Mr. Watkins?
Mr. Watkins fails to understand that America has the largest population of gun owners in the world yet, our country isn’t in the top 100 countries of those with high murder rates! He fails to deal with the problem that 92% of all mass shootings occur in gun free zones and other shootings in the US can be narrowed to metropolitan areas that have strict gun laws. Finally, he fails to address the use of pharmaceuticals and fatherlessness of mass shooters. But don’t confront Mr. Watkins, Obama or Hillary Clinton with facts… they are, after all, stubborn things.
I don’t have to be shot with a bullet to realize that it hurts. I don’t have to be shot with a bullet to respect the guns I own. I don’t have to be shot with a bullet to understand that they can be used to take people from life to death. In fact, Mr. Watkins, I don’t have to be shot to exercise a God-given right and duty to keep and bear arms. Perhaps, instead of listening to “cable news” and morons like Chris Rock, Hussein Obama and Joe Biden, you should seek to not be a coward and stand up like a man and learn to use a weapon and exercise your rights too.
