Update – Progressive Perspectives on Gun Control

UPDATE - Many people are claiming this is not an official Brady Campaign Ad.

Well, they should have told the Brady people that before they used it.

However, people are really stuck in the weeds on this one.

Whether or not the Brady Campaign actually intended to have this reflect their ideology, it does. As it does reflect the ideology of all the gun restrictive advocates. Whether or not the ad is officially theirs… the ideology remains the same. This is their ideology, even if not their ad.    So kinda seems silly for the Brady people to get all defrosted just because someone is pushing their agenda wide open.

Cudos to the person(s) who created the graphic.  It is brilliant.

        I’ll have to go back to my man cave (literally a cave), otherwise known as the chapel, where I cling to my guns and religion to check the older issues of Crime in the US, but IIRC back in the 1980s and 1990s there were about a hundred rape victims who were murderred each year. You think may be the suddenly increased risk of getting shot was discouraging the more predatory rapists?

        IMHO, I am elated that the Brady bunch was stupid enough to use this campaign. If we have the courage to cite the actual FBI crime and homicide data we can shove it up their asses.

          I’m compiling some data of my own, including the statistical significance of gun-related homicides with respect to total deaths, state-by-state. Thus far, state-to-state variation in gun-homicide death rates is not statistically significant for all but 3-5 states (where Washington DC is included as a state, and does have a statistically significant variance in gun-homicide death rate).

          The gun-homicide death rate has generally been compared as a function of relative strictness of state gun laws, but I’m not sure such comparison is terribly useful, because such comparison says absolutely nothing about the number of gun owners in each state. For example, Alaska has a statistically significant variance in rate of gun-homicide deaths, but I would wager that it is more a function of the number of gun owners in the state, and the more dangerous living conditions in the state, than it is a function of the state’s lax gun laws.

          (Bear in mind, homicide is no higher than the fifteenth most-frequent cause of death nationally, and gun homicides are only about 2/3 of those. And further, the order of magnitude is pretty much absurd here. We’re talking about a range of 5-21 gun-related homicide deaths per one-hundred thousand.)

          So, my next step will be to find data regarding gun-related homicide deaths as a function of number/percentage of gun owners, state-by-state.

          Other considerations: urban-vs-rural analysis, and a comparison of gun-homicide death rates in gun-control cities against the gun-homicide death rates for the remainder of the state.

          I tried to listen pretty carefully to what they were saying in the video and, at one point, there’s some talk about “going over there.” And the one you’re referring to says something to the effect of don’t bother, she’s dead. It seems they saw a pic or vid of her not reacting to a particular form of assualt — hence the “she’s dead” or she would have reacted. So I don’t think he was actually there or that he took a pic or video himself. Again, I could be wrong, and I’m certainly not defending him by a long shot (I can’t even imagine what I’d to him if that were my son, but it wouldn’t be pretty or short-term). But being accused of participating in a brutal rape and being guilty of being a POS who thinks it’s hilarious are still, in my mind, two different things. Now that I think of it, though, even viewing the images might be a crime if they show an actual sexual assualt of a minor.

      I don’t have any first hand knowledge of either pepper spray or tasers (although, I’m fairly certain I was hit with tear gas once upon a time). I’ve never wielded either. There are videos on YouTube of people getting tased and people getting pepper sprayed. I’m going to attach a video of someone comparing a taser to pepper spray below (it’s funny, but it also makes some good points–win win).

      Something to consider with either choice is accuracy. She will have to be able to hit her assailant and hit her assailant in certain places in order for her strikes to be effective. She doesn’t necessarily need to maim her assailant, just incapacitate him such that she can get away.

      Tasers- the two types with which I am familiar are the type that you have to physically place on the target and the kind that sends the current through wires that attach to the assailant. I wouldn’t recommend getting her the kind that discharge via wire, as these are pretty much: aim, discharge, hit/miss, end. With these kinds, there is only one shot of getting the assailant. If the shot misses, the shot misses. Realistically, there’s no time to reload and fire again. On the other hand, the type that must be placed on the assailant offers multiple chances to strike the assailant, without the need to reload. Just hold down the trigger and get it somewhere sensitive. These latter types are more convenient in that they offer more chances to strike the assailant, but a detraction would be the need to get closer to the assailant than with the kind with the wires. Having either is better than having neither, but each comes with its faults.

      Pepper Spray- I’d personally favor this over a taser. One can use pepper spray at a fair distance from the assailant, because it’s a spray to which the mucus membranes are extremely sensitive, and it is very effective. Very little of it is needed to momentarily stun the assailant–whereby the user would have a larger window to spray at more effective areas: Getting hit with the spray in the eyes/nose/ mouth causes the eyes to shut, the nose to clog/run and the throat to contract. Very fit assailants can be incapacitated for at least 10-15 minutes with a good shot; this is just about when the assailant is capable of blindly stumbling and coughing his way to a sink (I would say “good luck” here, but, the hell with him; he’s an assailant!) to flush his eyes out. This makes for plenty of time to leave the area.

      I would certainly look more into both options and definitely find someone who has first hand knowledge of these matters; I don’t.

      So. Background on the video.

      His name is Adam Kokesh, and he lives with his girlfriend (now an ex-, I hear) in Washington, DC at the time of the video. Concerned for her safety, he found himself in a similar position with his girlfriend as you are to your niece (shady city, loved one regularly exposed to potential danger).

      Adam is an activist, independent reporter, and served as a Marine from 1999-2007 with a tour in Fallujah in 2004. His discharge (he’s very rebellious..) and other info. can be found on Wikipedia. He does independent journalism and has a podcast/show on YouTube called Adam Vs. The Man.

      How is this not representative of their position? I think many of you are losing the big picture of this. REgardless of whether or not this is “officially theirs”, or a “parody of their opinion”, is moot…. the opinion is theirs.

      Just because someone has done an exceptional job of outlining their ideology with this graphic, does not diminish the value to the debate. The graphic is only representing the position of those who want gun bans.

      A woman can be raped in 30 seconds. Factual.
      Murder lasts forever. Factual.
      Guns are not the answer – is a FACTUALLY accurate claim by those who want restrictions on ownership or gun bans, or gun free zones.

      You are getting lost in the weeds.

      I’d be happy to debate a Brady Bill Supporter on this issue. Period. AND I seriously commend whoever created this graphic. It is brilliant.

    I am going to guess that a rape lasts forever… A 30 second rape? So the rapist instead of killing you with a gun kills you with a lamp cord? If a rapist wants to kill you, he is going to kill you whether he has a gun or not. If a rapist does not have a gun, it does not make the woman one ounce safer. It is only safer if she happens to have access to a gun.

    Irregardless of whether or not they created this graphic, it is the ultimate truth of their position.

    It might be a despicable ad, but so is their position, and the position of gun banners that a woman raped, or raped and murdered is morally superior to a woman whose would be rapist is lying dead at her feet with a sucking chest wound.

    The thing about progressives is that when you point out the ultimate implications of their ideals, they don’t mean it like that, and of course they don’t want to do it that way.

    Fine SD. I missed where the Brady campaign actually used it for a bit and don’t doubt they did anymore. I knew what you meant when you stated it “represents their mindset”, and it does!

    Can you help with the IL law they are introducing for a vote during the lame duck session tomorrow? I’ve been on the phone, writing etc. as fast as I can.

    The Gun Rights battle starts tomorrow in Springfield, IL

    To reach the main line for the Illinois General Assembly, please call 217.782.2000.

    Well I am thinking we are now the minority. Maybe using the civil rights act of 1964 against them would work. They can no longer claim victimhood because we are now the victims. I wonder? We are the oppressed and they are the oppressors.

    Florida police are disposing of several hand grenades found in a Disney World trashcan Wednesday.
    Turns out, no problem, hollowed out. I’m guessing another fear tactic.

    I ran across something silly but worthwhile. A lady that goes around to VA hospitals honoring the Pin-Up girls meeting wounded Vets giving them calendars. They appreciate it and it is ’40s sexy.

    Two thoughts:
    #1. In regards to the ad real or not. Many rapists have HIV or Hep it will kill you very slowly. Rape need not be physically violent(above and beyond the rape itself) to kill. Also the psychological trauma can greatly increase suicide.

    #2. To LJP, the number one rule of self defense is avoidence and awareness. Please have her contact campus security to escort her to her car. If she is embarassed to do this she can make an informal group to walk each other to their cars and/or make sure that they car pool. Groups are a better deterence than anything else. Chem sprays, Tasers,and all the other physical devices are great but they do not deter an attack they are for use after an attack has occured. In my opinion this is to late.

    I am in agreement with SD on this graphic – brilliant, back-atcha for those with grey matter.
    The compelling statement for me was “A Rape Can Last 30 Seconds”… seriously?? How many rapes have you heard reported that were under 30 seconds, like that’s the high mark? Most I have heard of recently were for HOURS…like that poor girl on Christmas driven around town while being gang-raped, or in India while they beat her companion. She later died of massive internal trauma.
    HOURS – seriously?? Isn’t it much more humane to be proactive and end it quickly with one killshot? Sheeesh.

    Attacking violence in movies, the media and music is a good approach…seems to have a lot of traction. The guy in Aurora actually made himself look like the Joker. Rappers are shooting each other. Newtown did play many violent video games…
