Gun Control Laws Are An Irrational Response To A Symptom Of Societal Decay
By now, I am sure we have all heard about the shooting at the Navy Yard. If you are one of those who pay attention – and I assume you are if you are reading this – no doubt you have heard the renewed calls for more gun control. Well, the problem isn’t guns, but the irrational people blaming an inanimate object for the acts of an individual give us some clues as to where the real problem lies.
I am going to state this bluntly: anyone who argues that more gun control will stop the next shooting either wants to take your weapons so they can control you, or they are insane. Yes, I am saying that the people calling for gun control are doing so because they do not want the people to be able to oppose the government, or they are mentally insane. Look up the definition of the word insane and you will find I am using it correctly, and here’s why:
A Study by Harvard Professors, Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide? A review of International And Some Domestic Evidence By Don B Kate and Gary Mauser. In which, they write:
Obviously there are certain people who should not be allowed to own any deadly instrument. Reasonable as such prohibitions are, it is unrealistic to think those people will comply with such restrictions any more readily than they do with laws against violent crime. In any event, studies analyzing acquaintance homicide suggest there is no reason for laws prohibiting gun possession by ordinary, law‐abiding responsible adults because such people virtually never murder. If one accepts that such adults are far more likely to be victims of violent crime than to commit it, disarming them becomes not just unproductive but counter‐productive.
Our politicians and media know this to be true. This is why you have never heard about all the “school shootings” that were actually stopped by private citizens with personal weapons:
Furthermore, had the government not prohibited our U.S. military personnel from carrying their weapons on military instillation – something we routinely did when I was in the service – the Navy Yard shooter would not have been able to kill as many people as he did:
The same is true about the Islamic Terrorist incident at the Fort Hood Army base. If one didn’t know better, one might almost think there are people in the U.S. government who are wanting these mass shootings, with as many deaths as possible, for the purpose of creating a ‘crisis’ they can then exploit to ban private firearm ownership:
However, there is a bigger Truth to this issue. It is not the gun that is responsible for these deaths. When I went to school, we had guns hanging in the rear windows of nearly every pickup truck in the student parking lot. My father tells me that, when he went to school, they actually kept their rifles in their lockers. So we know it is not the weapon that kills, it’s us. We are the problem. Something has changed in this country:
But what could possibly have caused the change in our society from who we were to what we have become? Could it be that we kicked God out of our schools and public life? Surely there is no evidence suggesting a connection between this and the decline in our society, right? Wrong! You should give the information in this link a read if you doubt me. The welfare state has also added to the destruction of the family in America, especially the black family. And what is allowed in our ‘entertainment’ industry is yet another clue to how we have gotten to this point:
And Congress knows there is a link between video games and violence:
But they keep going after our guns. Why? Because gun control is not about keeping us safe; it is about making us slaves who cannot fight back. And the society that is giving them the political power to do this to the rest of us is insane. The control freaks know it because they have been working for decades to raise insane little automatons.
And now, they may finally have enough of them to pull off the final takeover of this nation.
