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.

  • Much in the same way that they want to take fattening foods away from the people who didn’t make themselves fat eating them. Why don’t we take away the cars from those who don’t have car accidents?

    • Agreed

    • agreed

    • good point Shawn.

    • MR.RIGHT

      I love it! here’s one for you, if guns kill people, then the spoon made you fat, pencils misspell words, and the car got into an accident. This is nothing more than misdirection, taking the focus off of the real issues; the destruction of this country. I guess they better get rid of every rock there is on the planet… weren’t rocks used as weapons? (oh wait that’s “mother earth” I think the e.p.a would have something to say about that) take away anything that can be used as a weapon; next they’ll want to cut our hands off; last time I checked you can kill someone with your bare hands. Heck lets do away with pillows too. Shovels, pickaxes,hammers, hell any type of garden tool, how about those nasty forks and knives you use to cut your steak with huh? no more sports either those bats might jump up and hit someone in the head, oh and those mean golf clubs might just get up and attack, this is so communistic its sick. This country is on the tipping point and its because of multiculturalism. Allowing other ethnic groups that do not want to assimilate to America, they come here to destroy it from within. Trying to bring what they left here, it seems like nothing more than habit, they lived that way in their screwed up countries and they come here to “fundamentally change” this country by using our ‘laws’ against us, and all in the name of “fairness.” excuse me but life isn’t ‘fair’ why should anyone pay for a lazy person who doesn’t want to work ” If a man doesn’t work he should not eat.” this country has become the country of handouts. I don’t like to quote musicians but here goes ” if the use the streets we’ll tax their feet” how bout if they look at something we’ll tax their eye’s if they breathe the air we’ll tax their lungs, if they live we’ll tax their lives, if they die will tax their deaths… I could go on and on but I think thinking people out there get it.

  • david munns

    These folks are not stupid as it seems. they simply want all guns in their control so we can’t shoot back. I can’t believe we live in America anymore both because they want to take them and we don’t care. Puke!

  • Spell check Jan, spell check!!! You are looking like an uneducated hick :p

    Just kidding, but seriously, the article is riddled with errors!

    • Matthew, would you care to point out the spelling errors. I do not see any.. Neither does the spell check on my computer.

    • After reading it a second time, I found some minor things: “citizens guns” should be “citizens’ guns” (I think). “Lets have” should be “Let’s have”. “Mexican” should be capitalized. “If those statistics are not sufficient”: that sentence contains the word “states” twice: I think it should only appear once. “God given” should be “God-given” (not sure about that). I wouldn’t call that riddled with errors.

      • MR.RIGHT

        I’m sorry, but did you ever think that people don’t capitalize those words out of lack of respect? you capitalize nouns…names ,places…etc I do not and will not capitalize the names and places of those I do not respect like ‘obasturd’ if you are so worried about the spelling, and or punctuation of peoples statements; you are one of those who are easily distracted from what is going on. Get real, look around and see whats going on right in front of your eye’s. I think the writer of the article could be pissed off, more than worrying about their spelling or punctuation errors. oh and if I have a few errors on this statement like capitalizing or punctuation, you can kiss my ass! I care more about the country than a few errors people make, when writing something in the heat of the moment.

    • fliteking

      Let’s see if I can spell this correctly . . . tool.

  • Jeremy L. Knauff

    Something more to think about…

    In Mexico, almost 100% of guns are illegal for civilians to own, yet they have one of the highest rates of gun crime in the world.

    Since the UK implemented their gun ban a few years ago, their rate of gun crime has doubled.

    In mass riots, like the LA riots after the Rodney King verdict, or in 2011 England riots, the police simply pulled out because it was “too dangerous” leaving people to fend for themselves. Further, the Supreme Court has ruled that the police are under no obligation to protect you, or even show up, for that matter.

    However, in places with high gun ownership, such as Switzerland or Kennesaw, GA, where it is a law that a gun is in every home, the gun crime is so low it’s not even measurable.

  • Coastie

    Hmm, or have the gun lovers on the West Coast and anti’s on the East Coast. I live in the NW and love it here, I’m not moving, but think this is the place to be! Our temp right now is 78….not in the triple digits….God’s front and back yard…

    • ncjettech

      It’s a matter of logistics… would it be easier to move a select few or almost an entire demographic? The west coast is full of liberal anti-gun nut jobs. You Coastie seem to be the exception to that (I applaud you for your ability to free think!)… The South isn’t so bad…. Sure the summers can be a bit warm, but that’s why we have beer and ‘swimming holes’! The milder winters help balance that out….

  • The liberal elitists are scared. They know that they will be sought out once law and order breaks down. The sheeple will turn into feral dogs and their natural prey will be the elitist sheep. Liberal elitists have others do their dirty work for them: politicians, police, private body guards, etc. But when the guards are gone, the elitists will be easy prey….

  • Rick

    The article uses common sense and logic, todays problem is common sense isn’t all that common anymore.

  • Wayne Conner

    Have you ever wondered why other countries will not attempt to invade The United States? The answer is simple! Other governments know that the citizens of our country are armed. Take away our guns and we would be in jeopardy, not only from foreign invaders, but even worse, our own government. Our founding fathers knew what they were doing when they added the 2nd. amendment to the Constitution. Just think about the possible consequences with the current conditions in Washington, and the bias of the media in regards to the present administration. Scary, isn’t it?

    • Especially scary when you add in the passage of the NDAA and the Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare being constitutional. Now the government can basically make you buy whatever it wants as long as the consequences of not doing so is an imposed tax. We are already past the POSSIBLE consequences.

  • Let’s not forget that cigarettes are harmful, but nobody’s out to ban them. Many cities have enacted bans against smoking in any business even bars, but they want the tax revenue from the sales so they won’t ban the sale or possession. A motor vehicle is far more deadly than a firearm yet a 16 y/o can operate one with a license with no supervision. A Molotov Cocktail is easy to make and also far deadlier than a firearm, but I haven’t seen anyone looking to ban wine bottles and gasoline. The Left including their media pals cannot use logic to support their position on guns, so they use emotion instead.

  • Great!!!!

  • Forget the spell check button ( I didn’t notice any errors) How about the reality check button? Most law abiding gun owners would not turn over their firearms. You would have to peel them from their cold dead hands. I think it would start another Revolution! (did I spell that right)?

  • Marlen Flamig

    Good article, Jan and I dont see any spelling errors either. Possibly a few apostriphes? spelling haha, The issue of itself is not about gun control, it is about control, period, Control over the masses, and controlling the means of self defense, is the way to implement it. The enemy knows this, and is using it. That is why the simple logic of banning all cars because of the high rate of death they cause, or cigarettes also, is ignored by the liberal left. It in itself is not a means of people control. Just saying is all.

    • MR.RIGHT

      Marlen Flaming, they would never bad cigarettes, because they can kill us, they’ll never ban alcohol either that kills us too, or just makes us stupid and compliant… how many of us have seen a drunk shoot strait? keep the people fat and stupid! that’s what the ‘pubic schrool system’ is for. to school our children into America haters just like they the democrats/marxist/muslims/communists want. Dumb down society to the point of teaching homosexuality/marxism..and yes even islam in our public schools. And you must remember criminals protect criminals and that’s what we have in our govmn’t now nothing but thug bureaucracies and criminals, that should be tried for high treason against this nation period..just saying

  • In a non-confrontational, (at least on my part), parlay with one of those who believe they are the above-mentioned “intellectual elites.” Ms. Morgan has hit upon her attitude towards 2nd Amendment supporters as though they’ve had a face-to-face. I’m well aware I will never change her mind, but perhaps those observing the back & forth will notice common sense prevails, (part of the time anyways).

  • BarryOBozo

    I’ll make sure you’re taken care of… lol

  • superskytim

    What in the world, are they going to do to that girl in the picture. What did she do to be treated like that?

  • When I was younger, I used to think people who owned guns and were adamant about the 2nd Amendment were radical and though I respected their rights both to their opinions and their guns, I was never interested in following them. I thought it was crazy that they wouldn’t budge on assault weapons and in other ways. I couldn’t imagine a situation where having them made sense.

    Sigh…Now I understand…we are in very deep trouble and for the first time in my life, I actually worry that we might have to defend ourselves against our own government.

    • 2War Abn Vet

      First, it’s necessary to understand that what the media and the socialists call “assault weapons” are nothing of the sort. An “assault weapons” is capable of firing on full automatic. These weapons have been strictly controlled since the mid-30s. About the only place you see them is on TV,and at the movies where almost every gun is fully automatic.

  • So…speaking of gun control… is the MSM going to talk about the shooting today at the Family Research Council, a right wing group that was attacked by a left wing whacko? Or are they going to link him to the Tea Party? Just wondering.

  • Thousands are killed every year by drunk drivers, so where is their outrage to that. Not to mention the majority of the offenders are still out there driving!

  • “When guns are banned or confiscated, only criminals and the government will have guns..”
    “Guns don’t murder, insane morons, with no sense or virtues, murder”
    I like simple, to the point, time honored phraseology that makes libtards heads explode..
    Plus they’re TRUE, in Realville, anyway…

  • YankeeWatchDog

    Instead of letting the anti gunners move north,can’t we just move them to another planet?

  • Buffalo Lips

    “If gun control crime stats are not enough to convince the anti-gun crowd of the error in their thinking …”, then maybe you and everyone else will finally realize the anti-gun crowd’s motivation is not what you have been led to believe. Gun control, to its advocates, is not about crime; it has nothing to do with crime. It never has and it never will. It’s all about protecting themselves from you. Throughout history, gun control was implemented solely to protect the government’s leaders and minions from its citizens, even to the extent of confiscating weapons from soldiers returning from foreign wars. Those of your neighbors who tend to support gun control are the real cowards and fools. Those politicians who shout the loudest about gun control, e.g., New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Senator Frank Lautenberg of NJ, are quite simply those that fear their fellow citizens the most. I wonder why?

    Firearms stand next in importance to the United States Constitution
    itself. They are the American peoples liberty teeth and keystone under
    independence……from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day,
    events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace, security
    and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable. The very
    atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference. They
    deserve a place with all that’s good.

      Raymond, I would stand with you anytime brother. You sir are a true patriot. and if that is a pic of you, I also thank you for your service in protecting our great country. May God bless you and the United States of America.

    • Only last line of defense for a Belligerent claimant in proper person to battle a raging forest fire that’s out of control. Botto line, is unless Jesus on your side in your will then you’re just another man with a gun, but through Yahweah in Christ we can make a difference.

    To perserve liberty, it’s essential that the whole body of the people
    always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young,
    how to use them.

    A friend of my sent me this & i’d like to share it
    with you. This sign was posted on a conservatives
    front lawn with a large red arrow that pointed to his
    neighbor’s house. This sign sent their neighbor into
    a rage. Raymond

    My Next Door Neighbor wants to BAN all GUNS.

    Their house is NOT ARMED!

    Out of RESPECT for their opinions
    I promise NOT to use MY GUNS to
    protect them……………………


    You cant control the people if they have guns!!!
    Gog bless America.

  • blackhawk132

    All dictators 1st removed guns from it’s population .Then the had a clear shot at all those who opposed them. Hitler was the master at this scenario. Obama and Hillary are just getting started and still there is 47% of We The People who support him.A fool is what a fool does.

  • Huffer

    We’re just preaching to the choir about gun control. We know, and they know, it has absolutely nothing to do with safety! It’s all about disarming America for Agenda 21 of the UN. It’s all planned out by the Illuminati! Why is it few will speak out with the truth? They always revert to name calling and how many crimes would be stopped if they took all the firearms away from law abiding citizen’s. Only ignorant or Satan worshiping people want our defenses from foreign and domestic government takeover removed, so a One World Order can be forced onto us all!
    The future plan calls for the killing off of five billion people. Guess who that would be? Christian’s and dissenter’s who still want freedom.

      Interesting…But if our Gov. was to use our Military or the UN against the people our Pee Shooters would have no chance…This is how they would remove the 2nd Amendment..

  • ForverKnight

    I know plenty people north and south who will defend this right. Either way we must all stand together.

  • My bro in law, a liberal from Chicago, accidently spilled the beans. HE does not want us using our guns to chase the bad guys towards him. And he is unwilling to get a gun for self defense.
    He wants us to be as helpless because he is unwilling to protect himself. Protection in the herd mentality.
    I thought that, but never expected a hoplophobe to admit it.
