Ultimate gun nuttery

August 8, 2014 - Harry Eagar
Readers outside Hawaii may or may not be aware that 2 tropical storms are heading our way (one has already passed without much impact). So people have been getting ready. Some fill water jugs and buy batteries. And some . . .

"I have now seen five posts about people stocking up on ammunition for the hurricanes.

"I'm gonna plant my big opinionated flag here:

"If you are preparing to shoot, maim, or intimidate people who may find themselves in trouble or lacking supplies instead of trying to figure out ways you can help (even a little) your neighbors and fellow islanders - you are doing it wrong.

"No not storm prep. You are doing life wrong."

That's a Facebook post by my younger daughter who lives on Oahu.

I think she needs to get better quality friends, but I also think we need to confiscate all the guns. Because there is no way to tell who can be trusted to have one.

No, it wouldn't have occurred to her because you are talking nonsense.

These people are clearly dangerous and need to be disarmed. They are psychotic -- defined as seeing things that are not there.

OA - Guns make people think they are ten times bigger then they are. If you really think what you wrote - then you are an idiot.

I see that OneAikea the coward is still afraid to show his face in public. I would be too if I were that stupid.

Anyways, "If you are preparing to shoot, maim, or intimidate people who may find themselves in trouble or lacking supplies instead of trying to figure out ways you can help (even a little) your neighbors and fellow islanders - you are doing it wrong."

Did it not occur to your daughter that they are in fact protecting their families from the well-documented phenomenon of widespread looting, violence, and general lawlessness that sometimes accompanies any natural disaster?
