Let's play "Connect the Dots". Can you connect the dots in the picture below?
Can you make a pretty picture after you connected the dots? Is it a bird? A dog? A whale? A tulip tree?
How about a jackass?
The image was published a couple weeks ago in the New York Journal. It is an interactive map, which means you can go to the Journal's website, click on any of the dots, and see if you, or your loved one, or a respected neighbor is packing a gun. All of these dots are registered gun owners; full names, addresses, and what kind of guns they own, and how many they own.
These dots are something else as well. They are all law-abiding citizens who legally-purchased their guns, and legally-registered them. Some of them are active and retired police officers, some are active and retired military. All have a Second Amendment right to own a firearm, and they own guns to defend their lives, their loved one's lives, and their property.
And then there's that jackass, with "liberal" written all over it's face, in this case it's the editors and reporters of the Journal. They published that map with all of those addresses available in an effort to "out" all legal gun owners. Why? Because of the mass-murder at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. They want to paint all law-abiding gun owners just as mentally deranged as the individual who shot and killed all of those children there on December 14, so in a mental derangement of their own they got all of their names and where they live from public files and slapped them on display for everyone else to see.
And everyone else seeing this map aren't just the people living there; it isn't the politicians or the conservatives who are fed up with liberal antics. It's the criminals who are seeing it all, and they can click on the dots and see Joe Smith packs a Magnum at 123 Elm; Steve Jones packs a Ruger at 127 Elm; Bob Riley lives right between them at 125, and he's not armed at all. Which means the bad guys will break into his place first, steal his goods, peek out the windows to verify Steve and Joe have left, then break into their homes to steal their guns.
Did the liberal clowns running the Journal ever stop to think about that? Nope. Did they ever bother to think - they do think, don't they? - that a lot of those unarmed people now in the bad guys cross-hairs are liberals themselves? Remember, liberals are always posting everywhere that they are so much smarter than the rest of society, they couldn't possibly be a party to the posting of that map. Not them.
But it's too bad that the definition of a jackass is: 1. a male donkey; 2. an extremely stupid and/or foolish individual. it fits them well, not just for what they published, but for the anger directed at them for publishing it. The editors and reporters at the Journal decided they weren't going to take the backlash handed to them for publishing their silly map, so instead of fixing the problem and deleting the map they hired armed guards. You read that right. There new guards are armed. And they ain't packing pea-shooters, either.
But are they law-abiding armed guards? With their penchant for preferring and coddling criminals, in the near-future they may be victims of their own stupidity.
Did I also mention that other, third definition of a jackass? What political party is trying to enact legislation to curtail Second Amendment rights now? What political party is seeking to pin the blame for Sandy Hook on legitimate gun owners rather than the nutcase who committed that horrible act? What political party is supported completely by a slobbering, fawning editorial staff at the New York Journal? The Democrats.
They don't have a jackass as their mascot for nothing, you know!
