Here’s How Not To Make Liberals See Your Point On Gun Control Or Abortion

April 12, 2013 by  

It’s 2013, catchphrases are in and memes are all the rage. But there’s a fine line between being politically clever and making statements that will cause potential voters to run from conservatives en masse.

Representative Steve Stockman (R-Texas) revealed a slogan for what he said would be on his new campaign bumper sticker via Twitter on Friday.  He combined two hot-button conservative issues into one sound bite, but did so without logic, tact or decorum.

It may be catchy, but talk about making it easy for the liberal media to eviscerate you.

    Yea, and if my Aunt had B@77$, she would be my uncle.

    • Native Blood

      In a perfect progressive world, You would be correct.

  • JimH

    Roe versus Wade, Killed more children than AR-15’s.

    • Jordan

      More than have died in any U.S. war ever combined.

    • Native Blood

      It would have more impact if it was said that:
      More children died in the hands of doctors than mass murderers.

  • Sane

    Yes in some cases there may be an exception. ( Childs health / Mothers health) Most cases however are Not child rape cases. I would suggest If they didn’t want a child they should be more careful or maybe keep there knees together. I will never except anything else. It is called an unborn child for a reason. It’s a child. No Excuses.

    • Joel

      Right…and if there weren’t abortions this country would be wildly over populated. Since you probably already bitch about paying taxes, I would say that you should be in favor of abortions.

  • Connie C

    This message is “truth” so if you are Liberal and do not like truth it won’t set well with you. I voted Stockman and I will do so again!

    • Jeremy Leochner

      With respect Connie this message is not the truth. That is not because I am a liberal. Its because if babies had guns and I presume ammunition to make them work what would actually happen is there would be many more fatalities involving family members and the infants themselves.

      • Mark Langlois

        If you had kids, you would know babies would be chewing on the wood and drooling on the metal.
        Sorry you make about as much sense as the idiot with the bumper sticker. Your “family shooting” chestnut is completely false, and based on the fact that people kill someone they know enough to hate. Accidental shootings are rare, you are more likely to slip, fall, poison yourself or burn yourself than you are to accidentally shoot yourself or someone else with a gun.
        Most people, and I would say almost all people who own guns, know that it is a weapon, and can hurt people if mishandled. Use yourself as an example: Would you play with a loaded gun?
        MOST people are like you, even especially gun owners. Two million plus defensive uses of a gun to protect lives each year trumps your occasional accident.

        • Jeremy Leochner

          A child with a loaded gun with the safety off. What could possibly go wrong.

          As for accidental shootings:http://smartgunlaws.org/gun-deaths-and-injuries-statistics/

          http://arstechnica.com/science/2011/04/guns-in-the-home-lots-of-risk-ambiguity/

          In regards to your question Mark. I am a 23 year old who knows the dangers of handling a loaded gun. A small child does not know. Babies are fully capable of pulling on a trigger. A loaded gun in the hands of a child or someone who does not know how to safely handle it is dangerous.

          I never said people should not be allowed to have guns at all. I just believe in order to have a gun you need to be a certain age and have firearms training. Just as a person needs to go through a process of instruction and training in order to get a drivers license so they need to go through a process of instruction and training in order to own a gun.

      • Connie C

        Jeremy, you are trying to make this into something it is not. All Congressman Stockman is saying is we need the protection of our 2nd Amendment and that if babies had a Pro Life choice they would not continue to be murdered. If Obama is so worried about children being killed by guns why is he not just as concerned about children being cut up or having their spinal cords severed because they are aborted? Congressman Stockman is trying to get the message out that we cannot loose the 2nd Amendment nor should we let abortion continue. The Constitution gives us the right to protect ourselves as well as defend ourselves against tyrannical government. If American citizens fall for Obama’s propaganda on gun control he will gladly step in as America’s first Dictator! The babies being aborted have no say so in the matter and our abortion rate is currently the highest it has ever been.

        • Jeremy Leochner

          But Connie there is a problem.

          We have not lost the protection of the second amendment. In fact we are not even close to losing it.

          Second there is a pro life “choice”. I tend to lean more towards pro life myself. I believe abortions should only happen in the first trimester except in case of life of the mother.

          Obama is not trying to take away our second amendment rights. None of the 23 proposals he made come anywhere near to destroying the second amendment. Beyond the ban on assault weapons which is something congress would have to pass anyway, nothing he proposed violates the second amendment.

          • Native Blood

            I wonder, if President Obama is disarming the entire population, (and I believe he will try) will he follow the model in India and arm the LEOs with nothing more than night sticks. This way, the law will not be insecure with being outgunned. If not, then the population must be armed in the same manner as the LEOs to overcome governmental tyranny. (that is what the 2nd amendment is all about)

  • Jeremy Leochner

    A stupid statement is a stupid statement. Political ideology has nothing to do with.

  • TaskForce16

    OK, this bumper sticker idea is rediculous to say the least. But no more so than “Less guns – Less Crime”. However, “WE” have to remember that we’re being held to a “double Standard”. The liberals always get a pass on “rediculous”, WE DON’T.
    A better slogan might have been “ABORTION – Preventing Millions of Child Deaths by Firearms”. I suspect it would go right over the heads of the liberals. In fact, they might even try to steal it.
