There’s stupid and then there’s that special level of stupid, where guys like Justin Curmi can be found. He is a blogger at the Huffington Post who wrote a piece explaining why we shouldn’t kill perpetrators in self defense. Here are some excerpts from his piece:
“The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights. In addition, one’s mental capacity is a major factor in deciding whether a man or woman has the right to have a firearm. There are two reasons for ensuring mental capacity. First, one of the Five Aims is to ensure domestic tranquility and there can be no tranquility if one does not have the capacity. Second, if one’s brain is distorting his or her reality, they do not have the proper reasoning and deduction skills to use a firearm.
Therefore, if we ponder and meditate on the recent events in news about guns, it would be obvious that the current state is incorrect. A gun for civilians is a weapon for a revolution and not for ordinary use. The belief that a gun is a useful tool to protect one is counterintuitive because guns get into the hands of people who use them for horrible reasons. In addition, there are reasons why cops are trained to use a firearm in stressful situations. It is not to keep their mind at ease or anything of that sort, but to be able to fire accurately at the target in the correct location. It is immensely difficult to fire when under pressure.”
Justin seems to live in that rainbow & unicorn world, along with many other delusional liberals, who have apparently never been faced with a threat to his life or that of a family member.
It’s a known fact that armed citizens have saved thousands of lives, but according to Justin’s logic, we should just let the bad guys kill us so they retain their right to a trial.
He also indicates that guns in the hands of ordinary people are weapons for a revolution, yet millions of Americans across this country own millions of guns and nobody has started a war.
Poor Justin really shouldn’t attempt to discuss mental capacity when he’s clearly not qualified to go there.
