Sabattus man angry about gun ban in trailer park

http://www.sunjournal.com/news/lewiston-auburn/0001/11/30/sabattus-man-angry-about-gun-ban-trailer-park/1887175#comments

SABATTUS Ray Carrier has lived at the Oak Hill Trailer Park for the past seven years. Disabled and unable to walk very well, he likes to carry a handgun for safety.

"My biggest worry) is that I will not be able to protect myself," said Carrier, 58.

Daniel Boutin has owned the park for the past 30 years and said he started banning guns from being carried out and around the property years ago for safety.

"I don't want to have to face a gun on my own property," he said. "I've had issues with tenants."

3. Well, actually he isn't- and BTW, your classism is rather noxious:

 

Found at the link you gave:


Boutin said he hasn't heard from any tenants upset about the rule. He said he's a Second Amendment advocate himself, but he believes the rule gives him the backing he needs in case a tenant ever becomes a nuisance with a gun.

"If a man takes a .22 out and he shoots a coyote eating his cat, I'm not going to evict him for that," Boutin said. "If a man takes his gun out and shoots the tire out of an individual that drove by fast, I'm going to evict him. You can see the difference. But what do I do, do I take a full page and explain this? It's easier to be simple, say 'no guns,' and take it on a case-by-case basis."


Not exactly the nest of half-literate yokels you made it out to be-but then again,
cultural warfare requires ugly stereotypes...

4. Irrational fear of inanimate objects and lack of respect for his adult residents?

 

Is one reason with a high probability.

Lots of really stupid people fear inanimate objects.

Just like lots of stupid people think crime if up, when it's really at a 30 year low and still dropping.

Or is the goal just to make fun of people in trailer parks from a pathetic elitist POV?

12. Well, it's good that you can be honest about your classism.

But why people somehow feel that it's more defensible than racism or sexism is a mystery to me.

Gun nuts are so superior

Not for the reasons you mention, but simply by looking at the nature and level of discourse.

9. Some really stupid, lazy and cheap people whine online about how horrible they are ...

 

... and never get around to doing anything in the real world about it.

So, how has your work on repealing concealed carry going for you?

I thought you'd at least have it repealed in at least one state by now. Those repeal petitions still circulating out there?

Share some of your "Activism" success stories, or not.

Of course, you're not just another of those whiny gun control "Keyboard Kommandos", right?

You probably write checks, meet with legislators and go to gun control group meetings all the time, just like all your friends in the Gun Control group do.

15. So, you really don't do anything to support your "belief" on gun control

 

Pretty much what we expected.

But on the plus side that pretty much puts you in the top 1 percent for gun control activism. You probably even qualify to be one of the many, many, vanishing hosts for the other "committed" gun control group.

Also helps explain the roaring success that gun control has become and why your words and posts should always be given all the credibility they deserve.

Keep up the good work.

And starting 2 new class groups this week.

But you can "watch" if you want to, they have observation rooms for folks like you.

16. ...and insult. And proclaim an evidence-free superiority over gun owners.

 

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want you to change; people with attitudes like yours
are exactly the reason gun control is in retreat most places in the US.

You lot are the Eloi of modern politics.

19. The Eloi were stupid, easily led, exploited (and eaten) by the Morlocks...

 

...without ever realizing what was really happening to them.

So yes, calling gun control advocates 'Eloi' is entirely appropriate...

27. So you believe that income is strictly correlated with moral character, I take it?

And there should be an income test before you are allowed to own a gun? The working class need not apply?

FWIW, I used to live in a trailer park, the first year after I graduated from college and while my then-wife was still in school. I suppose we wouldn't have been considered "your kind" then; not enough green in our pockets.
