Things I learned from the Rittenhouse debacle

November 18, 2021
  • A teenage boy should be able to fight off multiple grown men with his bare hands. If he can’t, he just has to take a beating.
  • A length of laminated wood with a weight on the end simply cannot be used as a dealy weapon. No one has ever been beaten to death, or even nearly so, with a skateboard.
  • If you are carrying a firearm, you can’t use it to defend yourself if it’s bigger than an assailant’s firearm.
  • Being somewhere you arguably shouldn’t have been removes your right to self defense.
  • Crossing state lines with a firearm is always illegal, though no one can say when that magical change to the law occurred.
  • Social media is filled with people who possess the ability to read minds.
  • Conclusions that are not based on data are the best conclusions.
  • If you draw a conclusion which differs from the one that’s “obviously correct,” you’re either a rightwing, racist neo fascist OR a leftwing, anti-American neo Marxist.
  • Young Mr Rittenhouse is solely either a murderous villain or a great American hero.
  • People who have never been in a similar situation know exactly how they would have acted had they been in his place.
  • Not only is it a good idea to fire a “warning shot,” it’s a good idea to do so in an urban area.
  • Guns made specifically for right and left handed shooters respectively, do not exist.
  • It is impossible for two equally honest, sincere and well-informed people to look at the same data and draw different conclusions.
  • We’ve always been at war with Eastasia.
