I Love a Real Man with a Gun

Today a friend commenting on the Sandy Hill Elementary School murders mentioned something, an interesting fact, one that I hadn’t heard anyone else mention; specifically, the fact that when this wack job showed up intent on mowing people down, he was confronted by a bunch of girls. As I reflect on it, that’s no surprise. The disturbing feminization of men over the last thirty years has been part of the Left’s overall project of destroying the traditional family, and the public schools are Ground Zero. While supposedly concerned “educators” fret over little girls’ obsession with their body images and insist that they be encouraged to speak up, participate in sports and proclaim their ability to do everything and anything, little boys’ natural impulses are dismissed, denigrated, demonized and ultimately drugged out of them. Who needs male role models to teach boys to be the evil, knuckle-dragging, brutes?

Still, despite the Left’s relentless efforts, there are still some real men out there. I know it’s true. I am married to one. Here’s a story about another one, from The Arizona Daily Sun:

Flagstaff resident Dave Young said he was driving up to the Arizona Central Credit Union branch on North West Street shortly after 4 p.m. on Friday when he was puzzled by the sight of his friend, Michael Pileggi, detaining a woman.

He quickly noticed his friend’s son, Chase Pileggi, was also trying to stop a man as he jumped over a fence. Young said he quickly confirmed that a bank robbery had occurred and took off after the two in his vehicle.

Young caught up with the pair nearby and watched as Chase tackled the man. The younger Pileggi got the man in a hold and Young placed his hand on his sidearm, showing the suspect that he was armed. He did not pull his gun.

“I provided cover for him. If the suspect had tried to pull a weapon I could have stopped him,” Young said. “I told him don’t move. I looked him over for weapons and visually inspected the suspect, then called 911.”

 

He also said carrying a firearm is the responsibility of able-bodied, law-abiding men.

“I think it’s important if you’re a male with a clean record to protect your community,” Young added. “You should be ready to do something like this if possible.”

 

Not surprisingly, he’s not joining the politically-motivated bleating for more gun control.

Young disagrees with those now arguing for stricter regulation of firearms.

“Would you feel better if you were shot with a 10-round magazine instead of 30?” he said. “If criminals are going to have them, responsible citizens should be able to have them.”

I’d trade every panty-wearing, metrosexual, East Coast elitist Ken doll pontificating on television for another Mr. Young. We could use a million more guys like him.

During the first half hour of last Sunday’s show, I mentioned this post, entitled “I am Adam Lanza’s Mother,” in which the author Liza Long describes her struggles with her mentally-ill 13 year-old son. Here’s the audio:

So then yesterday, I hear Rush Limbaugh talking about the same article, which apparently had gone viral EVERYWHERE Sunday night.

Here’s that audio:

I didn’t see the post at Gawker, mentioned by Rush,which appeared after my show had aired.

Once again, listeners to the Teri O’Brien Show were way ahead of the curve.

We Need More Nut Control, Not More Gun Control: Show Notes, 12/16/12

Jurassic Media enjoys the Sandy Hill tragedy WAY too much, probably because, as noted here, it is tailor-made to advance several liberal agenda items; specifically, gun control, public school supremacy and more big government programs. While the facts of this case are not known, we do know that our society started down the toilet the day we decided that the biggest sin we could commit was being “judgmental.” Remember that movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” from the 1970′s? That film represents the beginning of the mentality that has brought us where we are today; that is, there is no insanity or pathological behavior, just alternative lifestyles. It was actually desirable when socially undesirable behavior, like illegitimacy, was stigmatized.

What role does the coarsening of the culture, including the “music” by Obama’s pals Common and Jay-Z, play in incidents like Sandy Hook?

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg makes a fool of himself AGAIN, this time by suggesting on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” that horrible mass murders like the one that happened last Friday in Newton, CT occur “only in America.” Not exactly, Your Honor. Can you say “Dunblane, Scotland” or  ”Utoya, Norway?” Fool.

How convenient-Hillary Clinton falls on her head, and even though no hospitalization was required, somehow she can’t testify about Benghazi.

EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING: John Boehner does the El Foldo, retreats on raising tax rates on those with incomes over $1 million.

Marathon Pundit reminds us that Ronald Reagan, despite being shot, didn’t change his position on gun control.

Teachers sacrificed themselves to save their pupils – Telegraph (if only principal Dawn Hochsprung, school psychologist Mary Sherlach, or the brave teachers Victoria Soto and Lauren Rousseau had not been rendered defenseless by laws making schools “gun-free” zones, perhaps lives could have been saved. Didn’t we learn anything after the VA Tech murders? We should call these “helpless victim” zones.)
