Gawker Gun-Shames Seniors Buying Guns for Protection

 

 
 
GUNS & PATRIOTS — Have you seen this hot mess from Gawker?

On Tuesday, Hamilton Nolan published a piece titled, “Guns Won’t Protect You, Old People, You’re Too Old And Weak“.

Seriously.

 

 

We live in scary times: sharia law, foreigners, and rape gangs haunt the streets of this once great nation. Some old people believe that they must arm themselves in order to find peace and safety.

Wrong. Old people. Wrong. Want to find safety? Can you even “find [the] safety” on the handgun you’ve purchased? Probably not very quickly, with your poor eyesight and fingers ravaged by arthritis.

In just the last five years, more old people are buying guns, training with guns, and cupping their hands over their ears to try to hear whether the instructor at their gun safety course said “Shoot” or “Stop.” In this day and age when you have Obama, ISIS, and Chief Keef, you—an elderly American—are thinking seriously about getting yourself a gun, for protection.

Might as well get yourself a dragon, or a unicorn trained to be your bodyguard. That would help you just as much.

When you’re old you’re slow as hell and decades of muscle erosion have made you weak. Pretty much any healthy young person can beat you up. Is a gun gonna even things out? Nope. In order for that gun to work you have to pull it out and aim it in a moment of crisis. While you’re fumbling to do that, all slow, a young person is just pushing you on the ground. And taking your gun out of your feeble hands.

Leave the guns to the young nuts, oldie.

Wow. They’re pretty tolerant of others’ Second Amendment rights, aren’t they?

  1. There is nothing in the 2nd Amendment about age. The elderly have gun rights, too. They may not be able to run fast, but they can aim and shoot the assailant.
