The far-left in this country led by Marxist Democrats wants to disarm law-abiding citizens. Therefore only government officials and wealthy elites who can pay for armed security will have access to guns. They falsely claim that this will cause gun violence to drop and government will be the “protector” for the “little people”. Unfortunately for them, this narrative crumbled to the ground when it came out that the Uvalde police did not despite being on site within several minutes AND have all the tactical gear they needed to take out the shooter. Cowards does not begin to describe the Uvalde police. Who will protect you and your loved ones when law enforcement won’t?
The tyranny of leftist New York state. The gun-hating leftists (who love having armed bodyguards) will say that this gentleman simply needed to register his gun. The trouble is, in the people’s republic of New York that is an expensive an onerous project. Exactly what the leftists want.
PC virtue signaling by major corporations to prevent communication, training, manufacturing and retail trade around firearms may do more harm to gun rights than any government action.
The good news? People are fighting back. Recently Louisiana decide to stop doing business with Citibank and Bank of America over their anti-gun policies. Neither will be allowed to assist the state with its hundreds of millions in municipal bond issuance. This will hit the banks hard. Citi and B of A were the first large financial institutions to crack down on the financing of this legal, highly regulated product. Bravo Louisiana! More states need to stand up to these corporate bullies. Oh, and let’s remember, Chicago has among the stiffest gun-control laws in the country.
Mexico is among the most-violent nations on Earth and sadly sits on our border. It’s murder rate is at least three times that of the “violent” US, and one study determined it was second only to Syria in murders during 2017.
“Cartel violence is getting worse all over Mexico, not just along the border. Last year brought a record 28,710 homicides nationwide, and this year is on track to surpass 30,000. May was the deadliest month ever recorded in Mexico since the government began releasing homicide data in 1998—2,890 people were killed, an average of four people per hour. By comparison, only Syria is more violent.”
Oh, and if you hadn’t heard, Mexico has strict “gun control”. Except of course, criminals do not care about silly gun control laws. When you are going to rob or murder, what is another gun possession charge?
Cultural rot and misguided Obama policies are largely to blame, not “guns”. Under Obama, the Department of Education stupidly passed rules making it nearly impossible to punish or expel troubled, often violent students, under the guise that it was unfair or “racist” to do so. Unbelievable. What did Oblunder and his odious Education Secretary Arne Duncan think would happen? Hopefully Trump will rescind this idiotic rules. Ironically, some of these same leftists are now proposing that public school students now “walk-out” or no longer show up for school until action is taken on gun-control. I applaud this totally – it will help private schools and home-schooling even more.
Survivor of French terrorist attack (where gun-control reigns supreme) destroys leftist anti-gun marchers:
Far-left astroturfing in the “March for our Lives” exposed. Nothing the left does is “spontaneous” or “grass roots”. As usual the anti-gun stuff is well orchestrated.
The left is not interested in reducing violence, only in controlling people and amassing more power.
And simply banning a gun or some type of mag will do nothing. Some of the worst gun violence on the planet occurs in some places with the tightest gun-control laws: Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil. The left’s solution is always “more government”. Well, in Florida multiple government agencies failed to do their jobs. How is “more government” going to prevent criminals or the insane from getting weapons? How has government-dictated “gun-free” zones done anything other than advertise to criminals “come and attack, you will be unopposed”?
Here are three excellent articles echoing my views:
Failure of government:
Another horrible mass shooting and 17 people are dead. We are lucky it wasn’t more by all accounts. Never one to let a crisis go to waste, the far-left and Democrat politicians (one in the same) have renewed their shrill calls for gun control or total confiscation. Here is a question for these leftists: would gun control have prevented 9-11, the France truck terrorist attack, Oklahoma City, the NYC truck terrorist attack, or the worst school killing in American history?
No, it wouldn’t have. Here is a simple fact: the far-left is not interested in protecting the people, it wants to control them. Without a gun the crazed lunatic would have likely used other methods. It is a fact that gun violence is way down in this country while these rare but abominable mass shootings are up.
Why is that? Instead of looking for the root cause of such acts and preventing them (everyone knew this guy was nuts and violent) the left wants to confiscate an object. I don’t know why this is happening but lets look at some possible factors: the breakdown of the family (the left likes this) leaving many alienated youth. An epidemic of depression and prescription drug use, fueled even more by tech addiction and social media. A breakdown in the mental health and law-enforcement systems. Mass consumption of violence in our pop culture including TV, movies, music and especially video games. Rather than eliminating guns (only criminals will have them, just ask Mexico or Venezuela) the country needs to take a long hard look at the causes of this phenomenon and attack them head on.
A terrorist killed close to 100 people on France’s independence day with, wait for it, not a gun, not a bomb, not even a knife….but a truck.
Let’s go leftist buffoons: try to make your normal tortured argument about how, if we ban guns, we can stop such atrocities. I am waiting for the call for “truck control”. What leftists will never understand is that banning guns will do nothing to stop terrorism, or crime for that matter. That is, unless we can eradicate guns from the planet, which will never happen. Motivated criminals will always find a way to get a weapon or use what is at their disposal. The root causes of such ills must be identified and addressed. In this case, radical Islam must be confronted and crushed. In the case of a lunatic, removing them from society before they act is the solution.
