A Boy Named Kim

I've never before visited kimdutoit.com but today while investigating Florida's concealed weapons permit requirements, I stumbled onto it. Kim's site is one of those that make some squeal with joy that someone has the balls to be so blatantly pro-gun and make another bunch squeal in agony that someone, heaven forbid, is exercising the gift of free speech to promote the ownership, use, and enjoyment of guns!

Kim, who lives in Texas, has commented on this old post with some interesting facts and figures. The automobile argument seems to be a staple for pro-gun supporters.

  1. I used to live in Dallas. Those Texans sure do love their guns. Feel sorry for the guy who tries to carjack ol' Kim here.

  2. Personally, I don't like guns. Never have. But far be it from be that would tell anyone not to have one unless they aren't educated in the ways of proper gun use.

    It's the gun zealots that scare the bejeezus out of me.

  3. And, of course, there are those of us who don't mind that Kim's using his freedom of speech, since it makes it completely and totally obvious what an idiot he is.

  4. At least he didn't use anything by John Lott, since pretty much everything Lott says is tainted.

  5. what is the use of a gun ?

  6. Thanks, Erik, for pointing to that discussion. Bye.

  7. If Mr. du Toit's site is the best you can find after spending an hour looking around for pro-gun info, I fail to see the argument. In fact, mr du Toit illustrates rather well the opposite.

    I must say that there's much more than the ocean separating us, Europeans, from you, Americans. I don't disagree with the right to own and shoot guns but you of all people in the world, are the least qualified to do it.

  8. I agreed with your right to own and enjoy the use of a gun, and I supported you in most of the points you made to support your position.

    But you just totally lost me on this one. I'm seriously hoping this is a joke.

  9. Ricardo, two things:

    I wasn't looking for pro-gun info. I was, as you can see above, looking for information on Florida's CCW laws.I am not pointing to Kim's site as an example of how I feel, but merely as an example of the kind of site that really tends to piss some people off.

    In other words, you didn't read what I had written very well. I'm the least qualified person in the world to own and shoot a gun? Hardly Ricardo. Hardly.

    Malachi, what's the joke?

  10. Did you know that Jesus and Moses used guns to defeat the Romans?

  11. I don't disagree with the right to own and shoot guns but you of all people in the world, are the least qualified to do it.

    And who decides what the "qualification" is?

    ALL Americans are "qualified" to own guns. It says it right there in the Constitution. Our rights are not negotiable: nobody "allows" others to speak their mind, or to own a gun, or to practice their religion.

    Europeans can do whatever the hell they want. But there's never been an Auschwitz or Katyn Wood in the U.S.A., unlike some continents I could mention.

  12. Erik, you said that you weren't pointing to Kim's site as an example of how you feel, but your post seems to do exactly that; and you have to understand how people could read it that way.

    And if you, in fact, do not agree with Kim's views, then what was the point of the post? That is what I was referring to as a joke.

  13. Malachi, I can point to a site as "interesting" without endorsing 100% of the viewpoints expressed on the site. C'mon, you know that.
