The Bizarre World of An Internet Anti-Gun Troll

Internet trolls are some of the most annoying and, frankly, pathetic people in the world. They seem to exist purely for the purpose of making obnoxious comments on articles and blog posts. It’s like they get their jollies from simply being jerks.

Trolls about a certain subject seem to be, in many ways, absolutely the same, though. Take anti-gun trolls. They seem to be reading from a playbook (which could be the case). Lee Williams shares the commonalities that he has seen in anti-gun trolls over the years:

They’re incapable of presenting and supporting a logical argument: The trolls’ basic mantra is — and I’ve cleaned this up a lot — Guns are bad. Therefore, gun owners are bad. I have yet to encounter a single one who’s capable of supporting this “argument,” or even parroting a simple anti-gun talking point — the kind Demanding Moms and Brady are always proselytizing. All they’d need to do is visit one of their websites and write down a few catch phrases but, alas, this would require research and reading, which I’ve found are not their strengths.

They’re penis-obsessed: If I had a dollar for every time penis or one of its synonyms were used in a troll’s post I’d be able to afford a Krebs Custom KV-13 Mod 2.  Call them out on their foolishness and they’ll respond with a rant that’s guaranteed to include several variations of terms for the male member. They’re obsessed with the word, as well as with conflating it with firearms.

They’re anonymous: Trolls never post anything under their own name. They go to great lengths to conceal their identity — fake Facebook accounts and email addresses. We discovered one troll who was using a proxy server in India to post anonymously on our website. Perhaps the trolls have formed their own NSA.

They’re profane: I don’t ban anyone for using bad language. Some sites do, but for me it would be a bit hypocritical. However, the antis who have visited our site use language that almost makes me blush — especially when someone calls them out on their BS.

They’re lone wolves sheeple:  Most trolls operate by themselves. I’ve yet to encounter one who shares their bitch-and-run posts. I’m guessing most suffer from a distinct lack of social media friends or followers.

They’re anti-American: Nothing is sacred to trolls. They bash God, guns, America and our military all with equal glee. They don’t seem to understand that their right to post their foolishness was paid for with the blood of American soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who, of course, didn’t use penis references to vanquish our foes.

Whether you love them or hate them, it’s true that anti-gun “crusaders” appear to be reading off of the same script about how to be general pains to people who just want to live their own lives and enjoy their guns. It’s utterly silly.

Williams lists six common characteristics of anti-gun trolls. Have you noticed others? Tell us below.

  1. I support the 2nd Amendment and I am also against any form of genital circumcision so after fighting against both in the blogs I have come to the conclusion that there is “moneyed” interests behind both of these issues. No one sane has the time to sit around and argue in favor of either of these issues UNLESS they are getting PAID TO DO SO. Trust me. I agree with the author. There is some way more to this than a couple of “cranks” with nothing to do.

  2. This anti-gun nut is so stupid that if brains were dynamite he couldn’t blow his nose. What’s next- should soldiers not have guns and just run up and hug terrorists.

  3. EVERYTHING THAT YOU SAID REGARDING THESE REJECTS IS TRUE, BUT YOU FORGOT THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTS: THESE ANTI-GUN NUTS ARE GUN VIRGINS AND ARE IGNORANT OF THAT WHICH THEY SPEAK ABOUT. SOME PERSONAL INCIDENT MAY BE THE CAUSE FOR THEIR ACTIONS, BUT THEY ARE STILL GUN VIRGINS. THESE ANTI-GUN NUTS HAVE THE MENTALITY OF CIVILIANS AND NOT THAT OF A CITIZEN. A CITIZEN TAKES PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEMSELVES, FAMILY AND ALL OTHERS WITHIN SOCIETY. A CIVILIAN ABDICATES ALL PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEMSELVES, FAMILY AND ALL OTHERS WITHIN SOCIETY! A CITIZEN IS AN ADULT WITH THE MIND OF AN ADULT. A CIVILIAN IS AN ADULT WITH THE MIND OF A CHILD!

  4. Be thank ful for the dem’s, the lib’s,and the anti-gunner’s, that do not feel there live’s are worth protecting!!!!!

  5. It’s hard to believe that they are so anti-gun, to the point of hysteria. Case in point: When the usurper was inaugurated a couple of times, he banned bullets by the service people in the parades on those days. He was afraid that one would pick him off. Oh, well.

    • HCUA —- During parades and in the presence of “armed” military personnel, Oblamu even had the bolt
      section of rifles removed it the event of a person furnishing their own ammo.

  6. I JUST READ THE CONSTITUTION AND THE NUMBNUTS IN CONGRESS ARE SUING TRUMP OVER VIOLATING THE EMOULONTS CLAUSE. EMOULUANT = POWER AND PAY. SO IN THE MINDS OF THE FOUNDERS SOMEONE GAVE FAVORS FOR MONEY OR WAS PAID A SALARY BY A FOREIGN GOVT. NOW THE CLINTONS AND OSOMA OBAMA HAVE REALLY VIOLATED THAT CLAUSE! BUT RECEIVING MONEY VIA A BUSINESS IS NOT COVERED BY THAT CLAUSE. NO WHERE IN THE CONSTITUTION DOES IT SAY THAT A PRESIDENT MUST SELL OFF HIS BUSINESS OR PROPERTY, IN ORDER TO SERVE AS PRESIDENT. GIVING SPEECHES AND RECEIVING PAYMENT FOR THOSE SPEECHES COULD BE SEEN AS A VIOLATION OF THAT CLAUSE! WHY? FOR THEY ARE EXCHANGING POWER FOR PAY!

  7. Did not Hillary “give uranium sites” to the Russians? How much did she receive? Why aren’t the liberals screaming bloody murder over this “Illegal sell” by Hillary? Nothing was said. How hypocritical.

  8. The Satanic anti-gunners, along with all the other Satanic anti-American, Satanic anti-freedom trolls are doing everything that they can do to destroy Trump and America. They are evil.
