Finally the NRA Veep explains the association’s side in public. It proves that they still do not get it.
The ultimate excuse that the Veep said was “The best defense against bad people with guns are good people with guns, ” and then proceeded to advance the solution to the shooting rampages with the purchase of more guns by the people.
While most of the Americans favor gun control, the NRA advances the suggestion that they should buy more guns instead.
The NRA forgets, and thereafter goes in denial mode, that if there be a confrontation between good guys with guns and bad guys with guns, the ones who shoot first are the bad guys with guns. After all, they will not be called the shooters if they did not fire first. This scenario of course would be disastrous for the good guys in that before they could react to the shooting, the shooter would have been halfway through emptying his second high capacity magazine on the good guys. This is exactly the scenario that the NRA Veep was talking about. Actually. I would say that he does not know what he is talking about. This confrontation would be decided on who shoots first. Even if the teachers at Sandy Hook had guns, they would not have the chance to use it against Adam Lanza.
If the good guy fires first, he has to prove in court that he shot the bad guy because the bad guy had the intention of shooting other people. And Lord knows it would be extremely difficult to prove this because nobody can read the minds of other people. How then could he be sure that the bad guy was meaning to kill people? Because he had a gun?
The only way the good guy can ascertain what the bad guy’s intentions are is when the bad guy starts shooting other people.
Security forces with guns in the school? He must be kidding! Where will the school get the money to buy guns and hire people for the job.
Listen well, Mr. Veep—-to kill people, there should be a gun and a person to fire this gun. To prevent this from happening, either the person element or the gun element is removed from the combination.
Well then, it would be easier to remove the gun factor than the people factor from the scenario, no?
Let us have gun control, not people control, eh?
I imagine that this Veep never had the chance to pulverize a saloon in a hurry. It is a matter of who fires first.

Most Powerful Known Quasar Discovered
By Belinda McCallum
Epoch Times StaffCreated: November 28, 2012Last Updated: December 3, 2012.

A quasar with the largest ever outflow has been found using the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT).
The object is at least five times more powerful than previously observed quasars, with energies expected from theoretical simulations but never observed before.
Quasars are highly energetic galactic nuclei associated with supermassive black holes. They often send out huge volumes of material and affect the evolution of galaxies.
The blast streaming from the quasar, called SDSS J1106+1939, is around 1,000 light-years away from the supermassive black hole at its center, and is traveling at about 8,000 kilometers (4,970 miles) per second.
“We have discovered the most energetic quasar outflow known to date,” said research team leader Nahum Arav at Virginia Tech in a press release. “The rate that energy is carried away by this huge mass of material ejected at high speed from SDSS J1106+1939 is at least equivalent to 2 million million times the power output of the sun.
“This is about 100 times higher than the total power output of the Milky Way galaxy—it’s a real monster of an outflow.”
The researchers have spotted another quasar with a powerful outflow, and are exploring other similar ones to understand whether these objects are found throughout the universe.
According to various theories, such immense outflows could explain various cosmological mysteries, such as why there are so few large galaxies.
“I’ve been looking for something like this for a decade, so it’s thrilling to finally find one of the monster outflows that have been predicted!” Arav concluded.
You may. however, think about it the same way I do….like this:
It is theorized that the bulk of the universe is occupied by gray matter,
or something that we cannot see nor measure. We know it is there.
They fill up the vacant spaces to balance the mass of the universe.
But then comes this most powerful quasar, so powerful
and yet it is still in the clutches of a Black Hole.
How much mort powerful would it be if it could escape from the Black Hole.
But then again, what if this means that
the Black Hole is now on the vestiges of exploding
as a conclusion to its incessant hunger to
guzzle everything and anything within its reach.
It is about to explode to revese its implosion activities.
And as it explodes to something simulating the Big bang,
it lets out these powerful quasars to initiate the Bang.
It would mean that the universe goes through a series of Big Bang explosions
and Black Hole implosions in succession.
This should also explain why the universe has not been
filled up by the Big Bang with matter
like blowing up a baloon.
The explosions and implosions occur in cycles,
after a big bang, the black holes collect everything
to be re-exploded in another big bang,
the same amount of matter being used all the time.
Right now the universe appears to be pock-marked with vacant spaces.,
spaces that may have been vacated due to the
black holes’ slurping up the matter from the Big bang.
You may believe in me on this or not.
But you are forewarned that the generality believes
that I do not know what I am talking about!
Now hold your horses there, people, your searches have started to be on the panic mode. This is OK because some of my file are disabled. But do not worry, these files will be enabled at specific times during the yuletide season. In this way, I am only preventing more duplicates of this website somewhere else. Also, some particular hot linking ip’s are discouraged.
As I said, dong worry, be jappy! Hey, there’s more movies to watch, eh?
This is true. This is actually, stubbornly, stupidly true. Guns do not kill people. Somebody must pull the trigger. Sadly, people not guns kill people.
But think of it this way—–people will not be able to pull the trigger if people had no guns. This is another stupid fact. People will not kill people if they have no guns. Never was there an instance when people killed people without guns. They might try to use some other weapon instead. Or, they might try to kill other people by using toothless smiles, instead.
Mentally ill people? Come on—–Canada has mentally ill people, too, but there never was an instance of a gun rampage by any one of them. No guns around to find, only day-old pizza slices.
What good would that do when the shooter is already mowing down the children.
The gun control debate is again turning into gun-owner excuses.
Who will guarantee that the teachers themselves will not be the shooters?
It just might be that Americans are inherently paranoid.
Moved to the United States two months ago
from a peaceful, gunless, child-friendly
What a waste,
more like a joke,
this America is—-
professing to be the conscience of the world.
I thank my lucky stars that I chose to migrate to Canada instead.
It is rather cold around here but that is only for the weather.
People are friendly, helpful, and warm-hearted.
I actually suspected a long time ago that
it is this freezing cold that makes Canadians
act like Canadians.
In fact, it is this climate that filters out
the bad elements.
