Gun Grabbers Lie, Pt. 2,742,423,858 [VIDEO]

Not news: the statist leeches at Mother Jones hate guns and want to erode the right to keep and bear arms as much as humanly possible. It shouldn’t be surprising, as the proglodyte magazine was named after community organizer (what other lying, authoritarian community organizer do we know?) Mary Harris Jones and at one point had that sweaty communist-fellating pig Michael Moore as an editor. It’s also unsurprising that a publication such as this would twist the truth about gun control.

Because an armed populace will not be subjugated. An armed populace will resist should its government become tyrannical. And since communism has historically had to couch its nefarious authoritarianism in a cloak of altruism and fuzzy, gooey kumbaya kinship, while subjugating its citizenry, is it any wonder that Mother Jones preaches against guns and publishes propagandist lies to support its goals?

In this edition of “let’s disarm the sheeple because only police and military should have guns,” the goons at Mother Jones claim that America’s police chiefs oppose proposals to allow teachers who are trained and willing to take responsibility for protecting their students to carry firearms.

In order to advance the narrative, Mother Jones author Brandon Patterson, whose varied and wholly unsurprising resume includes writing about “queer identity politics,” who of course supports the Black Lives Matter movement, sees racism everywhere, and writes about racist cops, quotes none other than… well… alleged “police chiefs” to support his disarmament agenda.

Nothing like an appeal to authority from the very people whom you denigrate as racist to support your agenda, eh Brandon? They’re not racist as long as they hold the correct opinions, right?

In his article, Brandon claims America’s Police Chiefs call bullshit on arming teachers.

Almost sounds universal, doesn’t it? I’m sure you will be shocked to know that to support his contention about America’s police chiefs, Brandon quotes exactly two police chiefs – one current and one former, and both ardent hoplophobes.

J. Thomas Manger, president of the Major Cities Chiefs Association, is also the longtime police chief in Montgomery County, Maryland, which, like Parkland, Florida, is a relatively affluent place. Arming teachers, he says, would put police officers and others in a problematic situation. “A cop shows up and there’s people with guns in their hand. We don’t know who’s the good guy, who’s the bad guy. That’s very dangerous for the police. And it’s dangerous for the community,” Manger told me. “The more guns that are coming into the equation, the more volatility and the more risk there is of somebody getting hurt.”

I’m sure you’ll be shocked to know that J. Thomas Manger was an ardent supporter of Barack Obama’s gun control efforts and would like nothing more than to see you disarmed. He’s a contemptible maggot with a badge who thinks that magazines that hold more rounds than he’s comfortable with have no place “in civil society.”

Does Brandon actually believe J. Thomas Manger is an objective source? Almost certainly not. But when Brandon needs Tommy here to bolster his appeal to authority vis-a-vis firearms, he’s a reliable go-to guy.

“Officers are making decisions in split seconds when they see a weapon in any circumstance, much less in something as volatile as a mass shooting at a school,” adds Ronal Serpas, former chief of the New Orleans Police Department. “So of course I do worry that [teachers or staff] who have weapons in their hands may be seen as a threat in that split second.” (Serpas serves as co-chair of Law Enforcement Leaders to Reduce Crime and Incarceration, a group of cops, prosecutors, and other law enforcement officials that advocates for criminal justice reform, but he stresses he is not speaking on behalf of the group.)

Who is Ronal Serpas? Another statist snake who genuflected in front of Obama’s plan to destroy gun rights in America in 2013. But he’s not even a current police chief any longer. According to Wikipedia, this guy is currently a professor at Loyola University New Orleans.

So, even though the title of the article conveys the impression that police chiefs nationwide oppose commonsense efforts to allow American teachers to defend their students in case of an active shooter situation, Brendan could only dig up one active police chief, despite having “reached out to a few to get their take on some of the ideas that have been floated.”

Further, Brendan admits that America’s police chiefs have been “pretty quiet on gun regulation in the wake of Parkland,” and all he could dig up is one vocal current authoritarian prick, and one former one.

Interesting, but not surprising.

Brendan then goes on to quote some shitslurping booger eater named Chuck Wexler – executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum, an “independent” research group that claims it’s just trying to help police do their jobs better (and that boasts the aforementioned Tommy Manger as Vice President) – to bolster his claim that the nation’s police are behind the effort to disarm civilians.

They agree that arming more civilians is a bad idea, claims Brandon. Who? Certainly not the police chiefs! Brandon simply quotes Chuck Wexler to perpetuate the lie that America’s police chiefs are behind him.

Arming more civilians, they agreed, almost certainly will not help matters. What would help, they say—something Congress could do now—is a new assault weapons ban, laws requiring universal background checks, and a repeal of the Dickey Amendment, which prohibits the federal government from funding research on gun violence.

“I [Chuck Wexler] just don’t see any legitimate need for assault weapons. They’re weapons of war. They’re not for hunting. There’s no reason for them. None. Zero”…

When an individual commenting on firearms policy uses language such as this, one has to wonder about his law enforcement or even military credentials. You now what credentials Wexler has? He was an Operations Assistant to the Boston Police Commissioner. He’s also taught at the university level, and authored journal articles and opinion pieces. You know what he doesn’t appear to have? Firearms expertise.

So in his claim that police chiefs across the country oppose initiatives to allow skilled, trained, willing, responsible teachers to carry firearms at work, Brendan was able to find three doucheocrat maggots to support his claim, one of whom is no longer a law enforcement officer, one who has never been one, and one who is an obviously biased authoritarian weasel.

You know whom Brandon studiously refuses to cite?

A 2013 Gun Policy & Law Enforcement survey of 1,500 law enforcement officers that yielded the following results (h/t Gun Facts v. 7.1):

  • 96 percent opposed limiting magazine capacity
  • 91 percent think banning “assault weapons” would have no effect or a negative effect
  • 62 percent said they would not enforce new gun control laws

You know what else Brandon ignores, accidentally, I’m sure. *rolls eyes*

The 28th Annual National Survey Results from the National Association of Chiefs of Police, which polled its members in 2016 and determined that:
  • 86 percent want nationwide reciprocity for concealed carry licensees
  • 76 percent think armed citizens can help cops reduce violent crime
  • 88 percent believe any citizen without a criminal record should be able to buy a gun

It certainly sounds like Brandon was studiously avoiding interviewing REAL police officers and chiefs, who on the whole seem to be a lot more pro-Second Amendment than the couple of fascist shit gibbons he chose to actually interview.

I’m sure I’m not telling you anything you didn’t already know: Mother Jones, Brendan, and the stalinist lawn gnomes who flog the gun control narrative like horny college students on spring break lie. They lie, they twist facts, and they obfuscate.

And they are not to be trusted.

    Hmmmm, I think you might be mis-reading the room, Marta….

    So, even though the title of the article conveys the impression that police chiefs nationwide oppose commonsense efforts … Brendan could only dig up one active police chief
    The hinge of their argument that “police chiefs nationwide” is that the one active guy is president of the Major Cities Chiefs Association. IOW, he’s their union/PAC chief. He represents them – “them” being police chiefs of certain large cities (i.e., liberal gov’t bastions). You are right about this not being surprising, though.

    What a lot of people fail to grasp is that sheriffs are generally elected (and therefore more representative of their constituency), while police chiefs are generally chosen by the political chiefs of their respective municipalities. Which means that chiefs of police are usually political creatures, and generally left of their constituencies.
    So, police chiefs are usually very anti-civilian-gun. And they seldom represent the attitudes of the cops who work for them. So not really surprising when people say “Police chiefs don’t like guns in civilian hands.”
    one who is an obviously biased authoritarian weasel
    So, yeah, pretty much that.

    A cop shows up and there’s people with guns in their hand. We don’t know who’s the good guy, who’s the bad guy.
    Well, that’s easy, actually. The bad guy is the one dead on the ground. Or laying very, very still with his empty hands in plain sight.
    But, of course, cops responding with guns drawn and fingers on the trigger is never dangerous for anyone. Just ask Amadou Diallo, those newspaper ladies in CA, bystanders in NYC, babies in cribs, dogs….

  • Marta Hernandez says:

    GWB – I disagree. If police chiefs across the nation agree with this guy, he certainly would have been able to get more than one to talk to him, who was speaking as a police chief rather than a spokesman for an organization of them. Instead, he got this one guy who is a well known gun grabber and some public affairs douche, who’s never actually done a day of police work. Additionally, the National Association of Police Chiefs is a lot more gun friendly than this guy and his group. And I’m pretty sure they have a bigger membership. That group combined with the police on the ground who are generally very pro-gun, trumps Manger and his lobbyists.

    IOW, no, I don’t believe for a moment that America’s Police Chiefs support Mother Jones’ contention.

    • GWB says:

      Concur that police chiefs are probably more pro-gun than this guy’s group (though NOT as pro-gun as sheriffs, percentage-wise). But note again which group he represents: Major Cities Chiefs Association. So, Chicago, LA, NYC, Detroit, DC, Baltimore….. And I’m betting a LOT of them do support gun control. Because those places are liberal bastions.

      But, this is Mother Jones. He’s not writing for deplorables in flyover country. He’s writing for exactly the sorts of folks who have police chiefs exactly like this d-bag.

      (One thing: yes, even some big city chiefs have spoken up when they felt gun control went a bit too far. Usually when it started looking like they were going to have to actually confront the mass of law-abiding gun owners in their locale. But they normally tow the line on any prog proposal that prevents the citizenry from acquiring firearms.)
