Shriek.

untitledStand back!  Looks like some of us are losing our patience.  This week, someone was arrested for pointing a gun at a fetus fetishist at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Phoenix Arizona.   Video of arresting officer hereLIEnews:

An Arizona man who dropped off his girlfriend at a Phoenix Planned Parenthood abortion center pulled out a gun on a pro-life advocate after she handed him a brochure with information on alternatives. Police say the incident occurred on Wednesday morning.

When it comes to firearms, I follow one simple rule of gun safety:  never point a gun at something you don’t intend to shoot.  It means you don’t go around waving guns at people as a threat, or to show them you’re “serious”, or that you “mean business”, or to “make a point”.   Don’t pull a gun when a simple “Get the fuck out of my face” and a slap in the head will do.

This dude in Phoenix clearly wasn’t thinking about gun safety when he lost his cool after being harassed by fetus fetishists both on his way into the clinic with his partner (“You’re killing your baby!”) and on his way out (“Murderer! Murderer!”).  Although no shots were fired and nobody was hurt, pulling a gun on someone in a public place is unsafe use of a firearm.

However…

Anti-choicers seem to think that because they lamely “denounced” the May 31st murder of yet another doctor by one of their own, everyone will forgive and forget and they can just pick up where they left off on May 30th and carry on with the hateful rhetoric and clinic protests as usual.  They don’t seem to realize that for some, Dr.Tiller’s murder might have been a game-changer.  It might have awakened people to the fact that the violence inherent in the fringe of the anti-choice movement isn’t a series of random one-offs, but part of a larger pattern, and that “mainstream” anti-choicers share a lot more with their fringe than they’d willingly admit.  People are frightened and they’re responding accordingly — that’s why it’s called “terrorism”.

To be honest, I’m surprised this kind of thing hasn’t happened before now.  If anti-choicers want to continue to mob clinics and harass women, staff and doctors (and occasionally kill someone), they should be prepared for a little defensive pushback.  It was bound to happen sooner or later.

Or who knows?  Maybe they might want to re-think their current strategy.  Ya think!?

    Sadly, this was bound to happen in the US. Many people now have licenses to carry personal firearms or handguns and they are not shy about this fact.

    While clinic workers warn their patients and those who accompany their friend, daughter, wife, mother or other family member to not engage and to ignore The Fetus©™ fetishizers’ harassment activities outside, they can’t protect them from the physical and verbal intimidation nor prevent them from responding with force if they feel attacked.

    Clinic escorts, trained in non-violent and peace-keeping techniques, do take the role of defending those who enter and leave the clinics; unfortunately they’re in short supply.

    deBeauxOs – As usual, there’s a lot missing in this story. It said they guy was having problems with them on his way in and on his way out, which leads me to believe they went apeshit on the guy, calling him a babykiller and all that. But who knows, maybe he was just as nuts as they were.

    I think, following Dr.Tiller’s murder, they’ve forfeited their right to hang around clinics bugging people, and if they still want to, they need to be aware that bad things might happen.

    I am really surprised that this is the first time for this kind of thing.

    Interesting – so a liberal solution is to remove ALL FREE SPEECH from EVERYONE that is pro-life because of some wacko!

    Hmmmm, since now you will finally admit that a pro-choicer like yourself pulled a gun and threatened violence perhaps we should rid the streets of all pro-choice speech now. Why not shred the Constitution all together for everyone ?

    Ummmm….yeah….that’s exactly what JJ said. I think I just sprained something in my eyes from rolling them so hard.

    How’s about you learn to read, then get back to us.

    “saynsumthin” — If that’s what you got out of my post, you’re clearly far too stupid to be commenting here.

  6. 6 JJ Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at 4:01 am

    Dr. Prole – I still haven’t figured out how “saynsumthn” got all that out of this post. Free speech? 😕 Since I will now finally admit that a pro-choicer pulled a gun? It’s right in the news article, WTF?

    The stupid is very strong in that one, is it not?

  7. 7 Dr. Prole Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at 7:50 am

    Saynsumthn but thinknnuthn. Just another “moran” spouting off on the internet about a post they clearly didn’t, won’t, or more likely can’t comprehend.

    Well put JJ. No need to make a show and a threat, just need to have it for self-defence. Given the penchant of the anti-choice side to maim and kill, I can certainly understand why he had that gun, even if I do not condone his actions with it.

    I wonder no how many people going to clinics carry?

    A lot more now I bet…

    Technically, the rule would be: “Do not point your gun at something you do not intend to destroy.”

  10. 10 Patrick Ross Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at 1:27 pm

    So your solution regarding violence from the extreme fringe of the anti-abortion movement is to embrace violence within the mainstream pro-abortion movement.

    Holy fuck. You are everything to claim to hate, and you’re too dishonest to even admit it to yourself.

  11. 11 JJ Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at 2:26 pm

    Patrick, what part of “pulling a gun on someone in a public place is unsafe use of a firearm” don’t you understand? If that sounds like I’m embracing violence, then you’re too stupid to comment here.

  12. 12 JJ Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at 2:32 pm

    MrMarkAZ – Point taken, that’s right.

  13. 13 JJ Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at 2:35 pm

    Mike – As I told SUZANNE, given the concealed carry laws in the states I’m actually surprised this hasn’t happened before, especially since their latest hit. Some of these clinic protesters are quite peaceful, but some of them are very in-your-face and crazy, and just asking to be pushed back.

    I was wondering how long it would take for splatrick to ooze into this thread with his prevarications.

    Shorter Twatsy: “I know you are, but what am I?”

  16. 16 JJ Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at 5:58 pm

    deBeauxOs & JAB – Maybe he’s just making the assumption because after a few of his comments, who wouldn’t embrace violence?

  17. 17 theconverted Wednesday, July 8, 2009 at 9:04 am

    He really is too stupid to comment anywhere.

    How is condemning someone for the unsafe use of a firearm he was otherwise legally entitled to have and carry in Arizona “embracing violence”.

    Well, it isn’t and don’t let him foll you, Twatsy know it. He’s just lying for the sake of lying because he WANTs there to be some violent pro-choice fringe when none exists. Indeed, the entire idea of being “pro choice” means you respect other people’s choices and do not wnat to use violence to force them to do something.

    I suspect he is doing what NAMBLA Dick used to do – troll various lefty and prog blogs making outrageous statements and comments to elicit angry responses then take those responses out of context to prove…something.

    Patsy is a little boy playing a game. That’s why his blog is called the Nexxus of Assholery…he is purposely trying to be an asshole.

    No one could be that dense and obtuse without having serious mental problems like Aspergers Syndrome
