The Director of Nanny Bloomberg’s racist, anti-gun group MAIG (Mayors Against Illegal Guns), Mark Glaze, is speaking with Chris Matthews on the topic of what you should do when faced against an attacker. In what can only be described as a moment of truly awe-inspiring stupidity, Mark Glaze actually suggests that you talk to your axe-wielding attacker, instead of shooting him, because, as Mark claims, he and his dad have a word for you if you don’t, and that word isn’t very friendly.
I mean… Wow. Talk about an embarrassing lack of integrity. This sort of argument reminds me of when my wife and I would watch our niece and catch her doing something she’s not supposed to. Even though we would witness it red handed, and she was well aware of it, she would still deny guilt to the bitter, bitter end. I expect that out of 4 year olds, so I suppose I should have expected it from MAIG as well.
I suppose someone should remind Mr. Glaze that, according to the FBI, more people are murdered, every single year, with “fists, hands, and feet”, than are murdered with MAIG’s nemesis: Those scary black rifles called AR-15s. Kind of odd they’d be suggesting that.
MARK GLAZE: Very often somebody will come at you. They might want to have a fistfight. They might come at you with an axe handle.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Would you consider the guy with the axe handle armed or not?
MARK GLAZE: Not with a gun.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: I would consider him armed [laughter].
MARK GLAZE: I have a word for him. I grew up in Colorado where my dad was a gun dealer, and a guy who shoots somebody who has anything other than a gun when they could have done something else like talk or fight with their fists –
CHRIS MATTHEWS: How do you talk to a guy with an axe handle?
MARK GLAZE: Well, you fight him. You run away. You de-escalate the situation.
One more thing, conveniently left out of MAIG’s assertion: What about women? What are women supposed to do when a crazed lunatic is coming at her with a “Axe Handle”? Is she supposed to fight or talk him down? This just further plays in to the FACT that MAIG’s strategy is to paint the pro-gun crowd as big, strong, burly, angry males, and the anti-gun crowd as feeble, weak, helpless females, like the woman he hired to head his other hate group, MDA, all in an effort to pull the wool over the average American’s eyes.
In closing, if you’re an advocate of Gun Control, and your rhetoric is so radical that even zealots like Chris Matthews laugh at your argument – you’ve have officially chosen to take a long jump off the short pier of sanity, and now swim with the fishes in the infinitely deep lagoon of human stupidity.
