The Washington chapter of CeaseFire (now calledÂ Cure Violence for whatever reason), launched a new campaign yesterday, and it’s full of genius.Â The plan goes something like this: get businesses in Seattle to put up stickers on their windows and doors that proclaim the area a “gun free zone”. Yes, you read that correctly: stickers are gonna stop criminals.
No Guns Allowed Inside: Gun Free Zone
The no guns allowed stickers, seen below, apparently do carry some legal weight in Seattle by establishing a condition of entry. If you violate that condition, you may be arrested and charged with criminal trespass.
Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn thinks this is a wonderful campaign, saying:
This is one of the things we can do.Â These businesses are saying, we donâ€™t want guns in our establishments. If people leave their guns at home, donâ€™t bring them into these business establishments, we hope we can make the city safer.
Where do I even start with such a ridiculous and contemptible idea…
First of all, did you notice that these crazy wing nut liberals were so quick to say that there’s “no proof” that arming citizens prevents crime, when there is a multitude of evidence to contrary, but they then proceeded to put on the great big clown shoes and make the preposterous claim that stickers will stop criminals? How do you even reason with people that willfully stupid?
Virtually every single major mass shooting in the past several decades has taken place in a “gun free zone”. There’s a pattern here people. Put aside your feelings for just a second, and use the brain that God gave you. Do criminals obey the law? No, by definition they do not. So who will your stickers be disarming, the good guys or the bad guys? 2 plus 2 still equals 4 right?
This is perhaps the most irritating thing for me when arguing with a liberal: more often than not, they attempt to put on an air of moral and intellectual superiority almost dripping with their smugness, all the while forgetting to actually activate their brain when forming arguments and opinions, and instead relying on “feelings”.
Protip: If you want someone to believe you are intelligent, don’t say stupid things like “gun free zone stickers will stop shootings”. End rant.
Folks in and around Seattle, perhaps this is a good thing. These stickers will tell you where you do NOT want to spend your money. You can read more here.
