There is one thing in common that radical Islamists have with the gun control proponents – that is a devoted (even radical) fervor in their beliefs.
The left gun control zealots are no less religious in their commitment to the cause of gun control than the radical Muslims who commit heinous crimes in the name of Allah.
Both are dangers to peaceful, law-abiding citizens of our United States. We all know about the radical Islamists and their goal to reduce our country and its citizens to life as they believe it should be under Sharia Law. We will all convert to Islam and accept Sharia Law – or else.
The Gun Control forces also believe strongly that their definition of our society should include the total absence of guns in the hands of civilians. They will (quickly) disavow that statement by saying that they’re not trying to take away our guns, only make them more difficult for criminals and off-kilter individuals to acquire. But, that’s only a feint, they’ve been trying to nibble away at the 2nd Amendment’s guarantee for ages and they won’t be satisfied until we (the innocent law-abiding citizens) are disarmed. Of course, criminals won’t abide by those laws so they’ll still be armed.
None of the thousands of state and federal laws on the books have stopped committed individual perpetrators from murdering innocent civilians. It’s as if those laws don’t exist when an abnormal mind decides to commit multiple murders of random people. In the misguided mind of such an individual, justification for a mass shooting might be reasonable to them, but complete nonsense to reasonable peaceful people. Does it matter to the dead and injured?
We already have laws in place which, if honored, would have prevented ALL of our mass killings. So, what makes the Gun Control cabal think that adding additional laws will prevent more of the same?
We already have laws against murder or attempted murder of innocents. We have all sorts of laws that are supposed to prevent bringing firearms into selected venues. By definition, laws only control law-abiding individuals, so exactly what logic concludes that someone with an insane determination to murder a number of innocent citizens will accept the existence of a law as a deterrent? Isn’t it logical to conclude that anyone who is bent on mass murders won’t let words on paper stop them?
Yet, here we are again. In the aftermath of a heinous mass murder spree, our Gun Control proponents once again are calling for more laws. Isn’t it obvious by now that they don’t know what to do to stop the killings and calling for more gun control is a knee-jerk reaction, designed to make it appear that they’re doing something. It’s complete and total bullshit. It results in talking points in elections – supposedly proving that he or she is serious about stopping senseless violence.
Their rhetoric is absolutely worthless. Hillary calls for the reinstatement of the “assault weapons ban.” That argument is so specious that I won’t even offer any reasons for why it was useless when it was in force and why it will be useless if it’s reinstated – any gun rights person knows them.
One thing that the left’s call for more gun laws reflects is a differentiator between bleeding-heart liberals who hate those evil devices and those of us who are Constitutional patriots who believe that we are endowed by our Creator with the right to defend ourselves and our families against those who would do us harm.
Any of us could write a treatise expounding on the other issues that are important to those who support Gun Control. They would all be anti-American and anti-Constitution as well. Oh, they’ll deny it, but the proof, as they say, is in the pudding. The liberal left simply doesn’t see the world as we do – they like a “shades of gray” view and they hate to label anything as “good” or “evil.” We do accept that some people are just plain evil and if murdering 49 innocents doesn’t prove that, I don’t know what will.
The left maintains that we shouldn’t profile, we shouldn’t “stop and frisk,” we should be more sensitive to the needs of our ex-felons, we should require our police to be more sensitive to the perpetrators of crime and we should always give the benefit of the doubt to protestors and rioters – “they’re people too.”
In short, they’re soft on crime. They believe that coddling criminals will cause the criminal to reflect on their errors and commit to do better. Some (few) will, most will return to that which they know best, criminal activity.
I believe that anyone who is FOR gun control will also embrace those few accusations I just related (for starters).
I think that I should make a bit of a disclaimer here. I don’t lump every citizen who believes that there are too many guns in civilian hands and that there should be some controls on them. Most of them are just misguided and don’t really know much about guns. I’m singling out the rabid gun control nuts, like the Brady bunch and Bloomberg for example. They are the engine driving the control movement even while they know that they can do precious little to restrict gun ownership in a country that was founded on the belief that our 2nd Amendment guarantees our right to bear arms.
They are, though they’ll argue the point, attacking the 2nd Amendment itself and if they could find a way to rescind it, they would. We need to remain vigilant and rebuke any attempt to water down the amendment that guarantees our right to defend ourselves and our families from evil-doers – and against a government who would enslave us.
