Personal attacks are the modus opperandi of the anti-gunner. Case in point, Josh Horwitz attempted character assassination of 18 year old James D'Cruz. Gun control groups are desperate, broke, and on the defensive. They've been getting thoroughly beaten down the past few years and they're lashing out. Ultimately it's something all anti-gunners do, and the Brady's, CSGV etc. are no exception.
All of this is over something as simple and non-controversial as allowing adults to exercise their Constitutional rights as adults. If I'm legally an adult then all of the rights protected by the Constitution apply, not just some of them. It's not an either/or proposition. If we are going to say that an 18 year old is an adult then we should treat him as an adult, not a child.
This is the face of the anti-gun movement, and I quote,
"The best case scenario here is that D'Cruz is strikingly immature and incapable of handling the serious responsibilities that come with gun ownership. The worst case scenario is that he's a ticking time bomb in need of psychiatric care. In either case, he's a poster boy for why we should prevent handgun sales to those under 21 years of age."
How does Horwitz come to this conclusion about Mr. D'Cruz? From movie quotes D'Cruz posted to his Facebook. I'm sure you could pull quotes off of this blog in order to do the same thing to me, probably with no more than referencing my "quotes of the day." Josh also uses these quotes to compare D'Cruz to the Columbine shooters and infer that he might do the same thing. That is despicable, even for the anti's.
These are the kinds of personal attacks I'd expect from the folks at Delaware Liberal or from any number of other vile anti-gun bloggers. One would think the CSGV, Brady's, etc. would be smarter than stooping to blatant personal attacks on teenagers. Sure they're pathetic, but they are the national face of the gun control movement.
I hope Josh & his ilk keep this up. The more our enemies engage in such hateful rhetoric the more it helps us. If this is the best they can come up with as to why 18-20 year olds should be denied their Constitutional rights then I'm optimistic about our chances.
Keep spewing your bigotry against young people Josh Horwitz. You'll be relegated to the 3rd rail soon enough. I hope Oleg Volk sues you for copyright infringement.
