Enough of this guy, already

Home - by - February 28, 2013 - 09:52 America/New_York - 30 Comments

Am I cold-hearted? Perhaps. Someone has to be.

Let’s be honest. This guy seems to be a bit slow-witted to me, and the fact that his kid happened to have lost the Adam Lanza lottery doesn’t move me at all to allow such people to be the arbiter of what law-abiding citizens can or cannot own for self-defense.

Should his kid’s bad fate be a Wonka ticket to endlessly drone on and on with nothing more to add to the conversation except, “I dropped him off and fifteen minutes later he was dead. Now everyone turn in your guns.”?

I vote no. But, then again, I’m just an a-hole with one vote, while this guy seems to have been handed the power of a thousand votes.
Maybe if I get home-invaded, and my government allotment of self-defense bullets doesn’t do the trick, someone can hold up a portrait of me giving the finger to Mr. Mumblemouth. Will someone do me that solid?

    And true to form, the only parents getting coverage by the American Pravda are the ones pushing the lefty agenda. Those who are saying gun control is NOT the answer to horrors like Sandy Hook get no air time. My response to this guy is: I own my guns so MY children can be protected from the crazy/evil people allowed to walk the streets….many of whom are in DC.

    The ‘Jersey Girls’ were “lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzies. I have never seen people enjoying their husbands’ death so much.”

    Turn it around on this idiot. Tell him HE KILLED HIS KID, by trusting the government and “dropping his kid off”, blindly, into the hands of a feckless government institution, whose policy of “come and slaughter the sheep” was an obvious failure.

    If he cared so much about his kid he would have home schooled him, with an AR-15 hanging by the hearth.

    Quit your crying and take control of your own life and leave everyone else alone.

    Anger is one of the stages of grief — and the need to blame someone for the unexplained randomness of tragedy. There is nothing worse than burying a child, no matter what the cause. But the gun grabbers are exploiting this man’s grief in service to their agenda. The progs got to him at a vulnerable time. Conservative sensibilities would never allow them to approach the man with their side of the argument. Unfortunately, this man is just a tool.

    Thanks for writing what I have been thinking, BFH. I am not heartless, I think AbigailAdams nailed it. We lost our daughter and it is too easy to look for someone to blame to get through the grief, thankfully I had very wise people around me.

    I see my role as the the full swing of the pendulum.
    This maudlin exploitation can only be combated with a bracing shot of “stfu already, and here is why.”
    Lots of conservatives, as you say, are too genteel for that job. That’s why we lose.

    Dudes got a right to grieve. It’s the Libs trying to put it on display to their advantage. Maybe this is one of those rare occasions that the messenger actually should be shot. Just don’t use an AR. Hammers might be the ticket actually.

    You don’t win this argument by galvanizing it around a single individual. You win it by defending the Charters of Freedom and it says right there, in the Declaration, that we have unalienable rights and it says right there, in the Constitution and the Second Amendment that we have an unalienable right to own and use guns. Period. As it stands right now all those cities and states which have restricted those rights are acting unconstitutionally.

    Keep coming back to the law. You’ll never convince a person who wants safety over freedom that gun grabbing is a bad thing.

    A copy cat gunman stole into Sandy Hook Elementary and murdered twenty more students. To the horror of all, one of the dead students is Mr. Mumblemouth’s, who lost a son in the earlier shooting.

    Mr. Mumblemouth: “WTF, it happened again? Dropper her off and boom, fifteen minutes later she’s dead just like my son. This had better stop right now! I’ve only got one child left.”

    BFH, just had to share this…
    Woman Stops Grizzly Attack With 25 Cal Pistol

    This is a story of self control and marksmanship with an itsy bitsy shooter by a woman against a fierce predator.

    What is the smallest caliber you trust to protect yourself?

    The Beretta Jetfire:

    While out hiking in Alberta Canada with my boyfriend we were surprised by a huge grizzly bear charging at us from out of no where.

    She must have been protecting her cubs because she was extremely aggressive.

    If I had not had my little Beretta Jetfire with me I would not be here today!

    Just one shot to my boyfriend’s knee cap was all it took…….the bear got him and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace.

    It’s one of the best pistols in my collection………

    Geez, people still believe this sandy hook crap, which was nothing but a poorly-executed false flag? Give it a rest already. Google maps lets you create streets and put landmarks of places,and there are any number of computer-generated name software programs along with computer-generated morphing software. Smelled this one on day one as it was being scripted/enacted. Google crisis actors for starters. And God, please send this man and all other devils straight to hell.

    I have met Neil Heslin. I attended his son’s funeral, and shook his hand and expressed my condolences as he stared off into space in a substance-induced daze.

    Folks, I too am tired of his mopey sadsack routine and that damned picture he clutches.

    But to truly understand how dishonest and hypocritical Neil Heslin is, you only have to go to the Connecticut Judicial Branch website and type his name in to the various court dockets.

    He has 5 pending criminal cases against him right now; one is a D Felony. That is why he is making the grand tour on the gun control express. He wants to taint his potential jurors.

    And that’s not even the worst of it. For that you need to look him up in the civil/family court website. Not the many lawsuits filed against him, but the paternity case of his now deceased son.

    Neil Heslin is a deadbeat dad. He owes years of back child support on the son he claims to be grieving.

    And he had that son taken from his custody because he was living in a house with no working toilets, and forcing the boy to go to the bathroom in the backyard.

    But the worst, most hypocritical thing about Neil Heslin is that he contested paternity on the son he claims to be broken up over losing.

    (Docket # AAN-FA06-4006843-S in Civil/Family court if you don’t believe me.)

    I have to admit I had the same reaction when I was watching this man on the boob tube last night. There is no equivalency between his tragic loss and the punishment of law abiding Americans. It won’t solve the problem and it won’t bring his child back. Somebody get him the psychological help he needs before he goes off the deep end and takes his grief out on others.

    I have firearms to protect my wife and kids.

    He does not get to cajole me into me making them equally defenseless as his child was in the gun free zone of the school. No gun law ever has led to the general increase in the safety of citizens.

    Enough with this nonsense. Our government has no authority to take away my rights as enshrined in the Bill of Rights. My liberty, my life, and my pursuit of happiness are all protected by my guns.

    If they try, it will not end well with lots of dead fellow Americans. So leftists, progressives, Democrats, and other scum, why do you persist?

    February 28th, 2013

    Sorry for the man’s tragic loss but this is the same man who fought to declare that Jesse was not his child. This is the same deadbeat dad who refused to pay child support for the care of Jesse. The same guy who doesn’t pay his mortgage and made his 5 year old son go to the bathroom outside because the household plumbing was in dis-repair.

    Yet he is the poster child for gun control, being protected, wined, and dined by those that want to remove our second amendment rights. Talk about hypocrisy! Heslin is a pawn of others. Pitty the man…

    Fur, I thought the same thing about this guy. And then my Catholic schoolgirl upbringing made me feel awful, self-deprecating pangs of guilt…

    Thank you for alleviating, expiating, dissipating, and smudging it out of me.

    I am now free to think the guy was an emotional twit who should have known better.

    Thank you. That is all.
