NRA tells Gun Owners to Stop Snitchin'

The Stop Snitchin' Movement was begun in Baltimore* as a way for gang bangers and criminals to get away with their crimes.

The NRA is now advising their so-called law-abiding responsible gun owners to not aid Police Officers. "The next thing I think will be a warning about not volunteering information if you get called because your gun turns up at a crime scene," said Chuck Michel, one of the National Rifle Association's top attorneys said.

Because your gun turns up at a crime scene...

It should be incumbent on Firearm Owners to have full, total and positive control of their weapons. Proving you know where your guns are should be required by Law at least twice a year. But, the NRA is against all laws on Guns simply because it's good for business to be against all laws. And the consequences be damned.

In 2011, House Republicans in direct opposition to the health and safety of their constituents, voted to put guns in the hands of Terrorists: 
Republicans on the House Judiciary panel shot down a proposal Thursday to prevent weapon sales to suspected terrorists. 

In a party-line vote of 21-11, the committee Republicans killed an amendment from Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) that would have blocked firearm purchases by those on the FBI's terrorist watch list.
In 2013, House Republicans again rejected an amendment giving the Department of Justice the ability to block gun sales to suspected terrorists.

"And the effort is resulting in gun owners not being able to trust the police..." Chuck Michel again. You know who else doesn't trust the Police? Hitler, errr, criminals.

When 40 Open Carry Texas (OCT) Firearm Fondlers showed up to threaten the Moms Demand Action, right-wingers rushed to defend the Texas domestic terrorists (terrorism can be defined as the use or threat of use of violence to effect political change) but, before this incident a couple members of OCT were arrested for breaking the law. In response the OCT Firearm Fondlers sounded more like the Weathermen than so-called law-abiding gun owners,
"Supporters of OCT called a police officer a "piece of garbage," a "fucking scumbag," a "worthless piece of shit," a "worthless waste of life," and a "traitor." One man repeatedly shouted "Fuck you, pig."
Last October, North Carolina Republican Representative Renee Ellmers had her AR-15 stolen. "Gun safety is of the utmost importance in their household," Thomas Doheny, communications director for Ellmers. Obviously! That's why the loaded weapon was left leaning out in plain sight, up against a gun safe, in a garage with the door left open.

But, to many "responsible" gun owners knowing where their guns are is as difficult to accomplish as not shooting their friends in the head,
Michael Burdette said John Philip Thompson accidentally shot him in the head while he was showing Burdette his handgun, but then only gave him a towel while he lay bleeding.
In the NRA's never-ending Quest for Unrestricted Gun Violence, The Firearm Fondlers have changed the definition of "Good-Guy" to simply mean anyone who has a gun. So the ownership of guns conveys goodness and moral righteousness upon its' owner.

"We should be praying that we will all be able to go around armed, because that will be one outward indicator that we have God’s blessing,” Larry Pratt of Firearm owners of America said last year.

Pratt believes guns are a biblical thing and while you might think Christ taught Pacifism, Jesus wants you to pick up your sword-gun. 

Gun owners consider themselves responsible and law-abiding including after they've loosed a Negligent Discharge or when they've used their gun to kill or cause serious bodily harm to another.

Thus we are living on hope. Hope that the "law-abiding" gun owner hitching up his pants over his giant belly doesn't drop his improperly secured Glock.

That the music isn't too loud for the law-abiding gun owner who runs over and threatens everyone with her jesus approved biblical sword-gun over their lawless loud music.

In 2005 George W(orst President Ever) Bush backed by the Republican Controlled House and Senate passed Legislation making Gun Manufacturers immune to Lawsuits for their Negligence.

Wayne LaPierre stated the Republican Congress 2005 law was the "No. 1 legislative priority of the National Rifle Association". Of course, the NRA "lobbied lawmakers intensely for it". Sickeningly 59 Democrats joined in the House to pass it a vote of 283 to 144. 

Therefore, because the Republican Party is owned by the Firearm Manufacturers and the Democratic Party is cowed we must always be prepared to Fight or Flee. Because this Nation is awash in Guns, and there vast coda of evidence shows that an Armed Society is not a Polite Society and Gun Owners believe they are above the Law.

Keep your weapons secure. Report them missing as soon as they go missing. Always have an attorney present when talking to the police. Join the GOA.

Don't own guns and you don't need to worry about heeding any of CH's advice. If you own a gun for "protection" it's more likely that a friend or family member is going to get shot (like the idiot who shot his friend in the article GEG links to). Research shows "a gun in the home is twelve times more likely to result in the death of a household member or visitor than an intruder".

Can you open your secure gun safe faster than an intruder can pull the trigger on his gun?

ChickenHammer said...

Jerry Critter,

Good question. When I'm awake I keep my firearm holstered on my body and I spend 10 to 20 minutes everyday dry firing. When I go to bed my sidearm is in a Multivault with a touch pad entry system permanently attached to my nightstand.

I have no doubt I can put down an inturder seconds before (s)he can pull the trigger on her weapon.

Any other questions you need me to answer for you JC?

I blame Hollywood. People having grown up on gun revenge films and horror flicks, Wrong Turn, The Strangers w/ Liv Tyler for instance think they need to be armed ready to quick draw their assilant into hell.

Blam Blam Blam

As Dervish pointed these stories are by a large margain more common.

"The 17-month-old daughter of a North Carolina parenting columnist is expected to recover after her 3-year-old brother shot her with his father’s gun."

Additionally, and don't take my word for it but ask a Police Officer, about the number of times they've been called to check on someone's home because the homeowner heard 'something' or was certain an intruder was in their home only for it to be the overactive unconscious mind of a sleeping human misidentifying the bump in the night with an approaching predator (a left over from our evolutionary past).

If what you say is true, you sound a bit paranoid. Glad I don't live in your world.

Dervish Sanders said...

Jerry: CH, If what you say is true, you sound a bit paranoid. Glad I don't live in your world.

Absolutely. I wonder if CH has fantasies about someone breaking into his home and what he'll do when that day comes... if it does... and it sounds like he's praying that it does.

Jerry Critter said...

More likely he will shoot a friend that got up to pee in the middle of the night.

ChickenHammer said...

JV & DS,

You two crack me up with your prejudiced and stereotyping comments.

I absolutely do not want to go to jail. I absolutely do not want to have to mortgage my house to pay for a legal defense. I absolutely do not want the inconvenience of a criminal and/or civil trial.

But the two of you wouldn't know that because you both believe all the BS the anti-gun side puts out there.

Jerry Critter said...

We never said you want those things, and neither have the anti-gun people. Sounds like a little more paranoid thinking to me.

Because you choose to ignore actual incidents doesn't make something BS. Guns in homes are, by a Vast Margin more likely to be turned on family members purposefully, accidentally or negligently.

You say that based on what Gene? I have heard that over the years but I've never heard where the statistics come from? The only statistics that come close to that are the thoroughly debunked 1986 study done by the New England Journal of Medicine.
