GUN CONTROL- The Coward’s and Fool’s Answer to Ending Violent Crime
In America, GUN CONTROL should mean a balanced stance and smooth trigger pull. Instead, we have arrived at a place in this country where liberal elitists believe it is the answer to ending violent crime. It never ceases to amaze me that people who present themselves as intellectuals, and gun owners as ignorant uneducated hicks, can’t comprehend simple statistics much less history on the issue of gun control.
The recent mass shooting in Colorado has the gun control advocates scrambling once again, pushing their legislators for tighter restrictions on guns or even gun bans in America. Why is it that when criminals use guns in the commission of crimes, people want to take guns away from law abiding citizens who didn’t do anything wrong.
90 million gun owners with over 300 million guns in this country KILLED NO ONE LAST YEAR. In fact over two million innocent people used guns to save lives. In most of those cases, the gun owner simply had to pull a gun to stop an attacker, never having to pull the trigger.
If those statistics are not sufficient, why do these gun control advocates refuse to acknowledge the states in cities and states in America that have tighter gun control laws? Those areas of the country have a higher violent crime rate than cities and states with fewer gun control laws. The reason is simple. If you take guns away from law abiding citizens, you remove their ability to defend themselves and their property. Criminals do not abide by gun control laws, so criminals remain armed in a population of people who are unarmed. It is a criminal’s paradise. Homes and people are easy targets.
If gun control crime stats are not enough to convince the anti-gun crowd of the error in their thinking, how about a simple glance at history? In the 20th century, 170 million people were annihilated by their own governments after being disarmed. In the minds of evil leaders, gun control is not about guns, it is about control. Remove the citizens guns and you have the ideal environment for tyranny.
Since America is so divided on this issue, perhaps we should just split the country. Lets have all the gun owners move to southern states and all the anti-gun advocates move up north. It would be interesting to see how long it takes for all the criminals to move up north to make their living among the defenseless and how soon those anti-gun citizens would be begging for guns.
Our Founding Fathers were intelligent men who understood this simple logic. They understood that the ability to defend your life and property is a God given right, not a right given by the government. Remember, what the government gives, the government can take away. Americans must NEVER submit their legally obtained firearms, their defense, to a government, especially one that has openly provided firearms to mexican drug cartels, criminals, while at the same time, wants to remove guns from law abiding citizens. That in itself should be, ENOUGH SAID.
