Quote For The Week

Regular readers know I’ve been listening to podcasts of Tom Gresham’s GUNTALK, “the only nationally syndicated radio talk show about firearms, shooting and gun rights,” for several years now (named “Resource Of The Week” back on July 15, 2011). Gresham welcomed new listeners to the show in the first hour of his July 19, 2015, broadcast, saying:

If you’re brand new here, let me just tell you- welcome. This is GUNTALK. I’m Tom Gresham. We talk about guns and shooting. We’re the good guys. We’re the good gals. We’re the ones you don’t actually hear a lot about in the news. We’re the 100 million people who own guns and don’t commit crimes with them. We’re also the 5 percent of the adult population- newest numbers in- 5 percent of the adult population in the U.S. that has a carry permit. That seems pretty high, going up. We’re looking at 12, 13 million people that have carry permits. And of course in some states you don’t have to have a permit at all to carry a self-protection firearm so you can take care of yourself and your family, your loved ones, your children, your wife, your husband, your parents. As in my case, maybe even your grandchildren. Lots of people have analyzed this. A lot of people have looked at it realistically and made the leap- and it is that- to say, “I get it. Every story I see, every report I read, every newscast I see, I realize that there are bad people everywhere.” “It is foolish”- this is the thinking- “It is foolish.” And it’s hard to get there- I give you props- everybody who has gotten there. It is hard to get there to say “it is foolish for me to continue to pretend this is not the case.” There’s a, I don’t know, maybe a psychological pathology involved here. Completely understandable, it’s a human thing, I guess you’d call it human nature. People don’t want to feel- people don’t like being afraid, I mean truly afraid. They like to go to movies and all that, we go to scary movies. But they don’t want to be truly afraid. And so one of the ways people don’t worry about things are- try to make sure they’re not afraid- they simply pretend that there is no threat. That there is no risk. They literally don’t want to think about it. They want to stick their fingers in their ears and say, “Na na na na na na na, I can’t hear you. I don’t want to think that there are bad people out there who could hurt me. That will take my children and rape them, and then kill them, and cut them up, and throw them in the lake. That’s horrible. I don’t want to the think about that. So therefore, I choose not to think about that. If I buy into that, if I say, ‘Wow, maybe nobody really can take care of us.’ Maybe the police really mostly write reports about things that already happened and they don’t stop the crime from happening- which we know is mostly the truth. If I acknowledge that, if I accept that as reality- this is the process going on in their heads without them actually knowing what’s going on- if I accept that then I accept that I am not completely and utterly safe all the time. I’m not in this lovely, warm bubble that I like to live in. So I like my bubble. And the way I can maintain this imaginary bubble of safety is I simply do not acknowledge there’s a real threat out there. And the way I do that is I reject everyone who has chosen to take care of herself or himself. I must make fun of you. I must demonize you. I must denigrate you. I must marginalize you. Because if I can say ‘you’re a kook,’ ‘you’re a nut,’ ‘you’re a screwball,’ then it’s easy for me to reject the kind of thinking that says, ‘You better take care of yourself.’”
