Nuge vs. UCLA prof on Gun Issues

Source: Little Green Footballs.


UCLA Prof: Guns are the issue. They kill people. Too many of them are around. Ordinary citizens can't handle them. It makes my hair stand on end just thinking about it.

Professor Hatter: If guns kill people, mine are defective. If they are truly the issue, why are 99.87% of the ones in the U.S. not used in crimes? Please qualify the statement about "ordinary citizens." If you're setting yourself as the standard of what a citizen should be, and attributing your discomfort and inability to handle firearms to the whole of the U.S. population, that is pure Ivory Tower Arrogance.

As for the hair, it isn't anything a dab of Brylcreem couldn't take care of.

The Nuge:

"Evil is as evil does, and laws disarming guaranteed victims make evil people very, very happy. Shame on us.

"Already spineless gun control advocates are squawking like chickens with their tiny-brained heads chopped off, making political hay over this most recent, devastating Virginia Tech massacre, when in fact it is their own forced gun-free zone policy that enabled the unchallenged methodical murder of 32 people."

The Hat: preach it, brotha!

While you're visiting LGF, check out the Penn & Teller vid on gun control. I had been looking for it online for ages!

David Codrea already blogged it, but since you're on the subject too...


[1] Note to self: don't blog-comment at 0200, as this sort of thing pops into your head unbidden: "Professor Plate in the conservatory with anything but a gun".
