“The Child Killing Lobby”

Here is New Yorker columnist Adam Gopnik on the shootings in Connecticut.

Twenty dead children—babies, really—in a kindergarten in a prosperous town in Connecticut. And a mother screaming. And twenty families told that their grade-schooler had died. After the Aurora killings, I did a few debates with advocates for the child-killing lobby—sorry, the gun lobby—and, without exception and with a mad vehemence, they told the same old lies…

Here is the same columnist on abortion.

[L]ife has no neat on and off, that while life may in some sense begin at conception, the moment when the formed consciousness that distinguishes human life from bean life arises is a very different question, not reducible to a dogma or a simple claim. A bean isn’t a baby; a baby was once a bean, and between those two truths it is, or ought to be, every woman for herself.

What is unquestionable is that the kind of fully conscious life that everyone claims to prize already belongs to the woman who happens to be pregnant, and it should be her individual moral conscience that, in a society devoted to the individual, ought to rule. One reason we prize life is because it makes minds. And women, who have them, should be free to make up their own.

Is there anyone in the “gun lobby” who advocates killing a children with firearms? Of course not. Every gun owner that I know advocates protecting children from gun violence.

Is there there anyone in the abortion lobby who supports the killing of a significant percentage of unborn children? Yes, all of them including Adam Gopnik. In fact, in the above passages, the only member of a real, honest child killing lobby is Gopnik.

    In the second passage above, Gopnik does what every person or group demanding the right to slaughter other people does: He declares those he wishes to slaughter to be sub-human. It’s the oldest trick in the book. As soon as you are able to convince yourself that those you are murdering are less than human, murder becomes very easy.

    Ask the intelligent German people that bought into the margaret sanger/adolf hitler ideas of sub-humans needing to be eliminated. Do they look back and say it was wrong, or that it was only jews, gypseys, frenchmen, etc. Too damn many of them anyway.

    People like this are emotional opportunist hacks. The problem, for people like us, are the folks reading it.

    In 1995, Eric Holder speaks out about gun control, a full 16 years before Fast & Furious. Now he and The President want gun control dialogue. Not with this administration. We do not trust you at any time.

    Ask a liberal what an assault weapon is and you will get 10 different answers.

    The term assault weapons was coined by liberals years ago to demean the ownership of any type of weapon so as to augment the repeal of our 2nd. Amendment rights.

    This administration has absolutely no credit to even engage this discussion on gun/weapons – semi-auto and everything in between. Does Fast & Furious ring a bell? Does Benghazi-Gate and The President & Clinton’s failure to provide weapons and personnel to the consulate? We do not trust this administration!
