I Submit That It Is Not Possible To Pile the Stupid as High as This Expert Level Stupid Piler Has Piled the Stupid
I post this picture of Amitai Etzioni as a public service, so that if you encounter this creature in the wild you will not get close enough for the stupid to somehow get on you.
I’m sure The Huffington Compost is proud to have this “professor” writing for them. I will not link. You have to trust me that I am not making this up. It will be difficult, but trust me. This guy wrote everything I am about to post.
We should not wait for our elected officials, in President Obama’s good words, “to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.” We should do our share. One way to proceed is to mark our homes, apartments and condos, with a “gun free” sign. Parents should notify their friends that they would be reluctant to send their child over for a play date unless the home was safe from guns. Residential communities should pass rules that ban bringing guns onto their premises, clearly marking them as gun free.
Please, remove your jaws from your laps. There’s more. Professor Peabrain offers his rebuttals to oft-cited refrains from self-defense advocates.
“The right to private gun ownership is guaranteed by the Constitution.”
• No right is absolute. We can limit gun ownership to people who have neither criminal nor mental health records and ban assault rifles for starters.
“Criminals would obtain guns anyway.”
True, dangerous people may still be able get their hands on weapons if tighter gun control laws are passed, but certainly less will do so when it is illegal.
I think we should start with banning the title “professor,” which is seemingly all too easy to obtain. Those loopholes need to be tightened.
