Guns aren’t the problem

Guns arent the problem

The tragedy in California proves Liberty Control does not work, this is what we need to do to actually solve the problem.

We were told that Intergalactic background checks, gun registration requirements, gun confiscation laws, a 10-day waiting period on gun purchases and other odious restrictions on freedom would keep everyone safe. The Liberty grabbers solemnly promised that these commonsense ‘Gun Safety’ laws would bring an end to mass shootings. Never mind that as soon as these were passed, they backtracked, parroting the talking point that each was a ‘first step’ while promptly forgetting they ever existed.

California already has the nation’s strictest gun laws and yet in the wake of a mass murder tragedy in a bastion of restrictions on freedom, the Liberty grabber Left is doubling down looking to expand Intergalactic background checks, gun registration requirements, gun confiscation laws.

But if those laws didn’t keep anyone safe, why bother expanding their reach? Unless the true purpose of pushing new controls on Liberty isn’t about solving anything but rather expanding the Left’s power over the people.

It should be patently obvious that Leftist attempts at Liberty control do not work.

The plain fact is that we should see a decrease in ‘gun violence’ in places with strict controls on Liberty. This has never been the case, given that if it did actually work somewhere, the Liberty grabber Left would never stop talking about it. The best they can offer are selective statistics or to simply ignore the failures of their agenda. Erich Pratt in USA Today and Jacob Sullum in Reason magazine both pointed out that the mass murder in California this was another tragic failure of the obsession with Liberty Control of the Socialist-Left.

Leftists have convinced themselves that they have the moral high ground in their various causes of ‘saving the planet’ or ‘protecting the children’ thus they feel righteous in their mentality of the ‘Ends justifying the means’. So if they have to lie a ‘little’ bit, that’s perfectly acceptable – to them. If they have to pretend that mass murder tragedies only take place in the states or faking the statistics on mass shootings, that’s okay because they are ‘protecting the children’.

In some ways that cavalier attitude towards the truth highlights the underlying issue that is the heart of the problem. The Left’s flexible morality is the very reason these tragedies are taking place.

Proving that gun confiscation will not solve the problem.

Before any Liberty grabber Leftists parrot the tired old line that ‘No one is talking gun confiscation’, a reminder that our research has developed a list of over 70 instances in the past few years that talk about this very ‘solution’. Please don’t insult our intelligence or memories with the repetition of that outright lie.

It should be obvious that the Socialist-Left has been grooming the law to their ultimate goal of gun confiscation. Their current obsession of the otherwise useless tool of Intergalactic [Universal or enhanced] Background Checks is a prime example. These serve no other purpose than as a stepping stone to gun registration followed by gun confiscation, their writings have admitted to this fact.

What would happen if the Left were to get their ‘gun-free’ fantasy world?

Let us diverge from this dissertation for a moment and conduct a thought experiment on what would be the result of the Left’s final solution to the gun problem.

What would happen if we had an unlimited supply of pixel dust and unicorn droppings and we could put in place what the Left has always wanted: a gunfree’ Utopia. Imagine a magic wand emblazoned with an Everytown logo that would instantly rid the world every firearm possessed by the law abiding faster a boating accident on Chatfield lake.

Since this is a Leftist fantasy world, the ‘law’ of the magic wand would do what no other law has done – have the criminals comply as well. Just for good measure it would also take away every gun in every government’s inventory. The miraculous result would be a fantasy world free of firearms, unlike anything ever seen, because laws don’t ever work on the lawless.

What would be the result of this ‘Gun-free’ Utopia?

Leftists have the farcical idea that if no one had a gun, no one would need a gun. The problem is that evil can always fashion a weapon out of normally encountered raw materials. Those of evil intent would simply revert to the weapons used before firearms arrived on the scene. Producing edged or blunt force weapons out of readily available stone, metal, glass, wood or modern materials such as plastic, ceramic or hard candy. This wouldn’t even ‘cut down on the carnage’ since the innocent would be disadvantaged by strength or skill. Criminals would be fashioning knives and clubs as they do now in the ‘gun free’ realms of most penitentiaries.

It should be patently obvious that even if guns could be eliminated from society, evil would find another way to kill the innocent. If not guns, then edged weapons. If not edged weapons, then blunt force weapons. If not blunt force weapons, then chemical explosives. If not edged chemical explosives, then vehicular weapons. On and on and on…. The focus on inanimate objects is a fools errand, we must concentrate our gaze upon our society’s moral constructs – or lack thereof.

So, how do we solve this problem?

All of this should make it clear that more restrictions on freedom, including gun confiscation will not solve anything. They will make the situation worse – far worse – than it’s current state.

The only rational solutions would be to remove the restrictions on freedom and restore societies moral underpinnings. The first item would merely be restoring the common sense human right of self-preservation. In other words, get rid of the odious controls on Liberty and so-called ‘Gun-Free’ zones. There are an estimated 400 – 600 million guns in the hands of 120 Million gun owners with trillions of rounds of ammunition, as the saying goes there if they were a problem, everyone would know it.

By definition, criminals do not obey the law and yet Leftists think that a brand new law will reverse this trend. Or it could be that they don’t care about the actions of criminals since they consider them to be the ‘downtrodden’ so they are ‘justified’ in anything they do. Either that or their power is more important than everyone’s safety.

Restoring the world’s moral underpinnings.

Solving a problem always involves careful, unemotional analysis of its true cause. Simply focusing on what feels good or appears to be a solution, but is not will only makes things worse – far worse.

Repeating the same ineffective actions is not only insane, but dangerous as well. The current focus on guns hasn’t done anything to mitigate the problem of societal violence. It has only made the situation worse, exemplified by the recent mass murder in the people’s republic of California.

We have no other choice than to turn our focus to something other than inanimate objects.

Evil will always find a way to kill, eliminate guns and it will easily find another way. Multiple-shot or repeating firearms have been around for centuries. While these mass murder tragedies are a distinct phenomena of only the past few decades. It clearly isn’t the fault of inanimate objects, but of those wielding them.

So what has changed to cause some to conduct these horrific attacks?

The past few decades have seen a steady degradation of morality. This is the ‘glue’ that holds society together. Consideration of any other action than restoring our moral underpinning will only result in more death and destruction.

There will be no climate change debate because the DNC is scared of what would be said

There will be no climate change debate because the DNC is scared of what would be said

Climate change activists were extremely vocal at the annual summer for the Democratic National Committee. They’re upset that climate change is effectively missing from the first two debates and have demanded a single-issue debate focused on the environment. But DNC leaders haven’t budged after declaring there would be no such debate.

This isn’t surprising. Conservatives may look at progressives and assume everyone in the Democratic Party is a flaming tree-hugger, but the reality is climate change ranks very low on the list of real concerns for actual voters. If it weren’t for the loud but small group of radical progressives who have been driving the agenda for the Democratic Party since President Trump was elected, climate change would still be an issue of passing importance on the periphery that it has been for decades.

It’s not that climate change isn’t a concern. It’s that it’s not a primary concern to most voters. Democrats are worried about it as they’re flooded with propaganda by progressive media, but compared to putting food on the table or paying for their kid’s braces, climate change is a distant concern.

Nevertheless, it’s an issue that’s important enough to talk about for Democrats because their party holds the edge on the matter in the eyes of anyone who believes it’s an issue at all. The ranks of Americans who believe man-made climate change is a real concern are growing. Polls show a majority of Americans who think it’s something that deserves attention are high even among Republicans. Considering the GOP stance on climate change ranges from mild interest to outright denial, one would think the Democrats would take advantage of this.

They won’t. They can’t. Today’s candidates aren’t Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton calling for incremental action to address climate change over the next three decades. Today’s leading candidates, especially Bernie “Green New Deal” Sanders and Elizabeth “Bold Action” Warren, are speaking of radical changes when they’re talking to their base. And lower ranked candidates are even more expressive of their concerns in hopes the environmentalist crowd can help propel them to the upper tier in the race for the nomination.

Candidates can’t speak boldly on a topic to their base and then give more moderate responses to a national audience. In today’s social-media-driven society, major contradictions are captured. They go viral. Then candidates have to answer for their reversals. Therefore, whatever the candidate tell radical progressives in small gatherings about their climate change plans must be the same thing they say during a nationally televised debate.

The DNC realizes this would be the kiss of death for their White House ambitions. If mainstream moderate American voters, who often receive their only exposure of candidates during televised debates, were to hear the insane ideas most of the candidates are proposing, they will quickly warm to the idea of reelecting President Trump.

The moment a candidate talks about limiting air travel, they’ve lost 2020.

The first Democrat to say we need to be driving electric cars exclusively by 2030 will get demolished in the general election.

Some may point out these policy proposals are available to the public already, but availability does not highlight the issue to the vast majority of Americans. But on the debate stage where consistency must be maintained, they’re done the moment they announce their real perspectives on the issue.

If moderates and independents heard the things Democratic candidates were proposing to tackle climate change, any hope of beating President Trump would be lost. The DNC won’t risk letting the radical truth come out in a debate.

Tucker Carlson: Moderates aren’t welcome in the Democratic Party anymore

Tucker Carlson Moderates arent welcome in the Democratic Party anymore

It’s true. If you’re a moderate, your ideas are anathema to the Democratic Party. Oh, there are still moderate Democratic voters out there. Otherwise, Joe Biden wouldn’t be leading the polls, though even Biden has taken several pages out of the hyper-leftist policy playbook since announcing his candidacy in April. But the radical progressive wing of the party is taking over and many Democratic voters are following their lead.

This is why, as Tucker Carlson put it, this is a two-person race. Which radical will emerge at the end, Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders? Warren has had the upper hand since the debates, but Sanders hopes his more-radical Green New Deal proposal will resonate with the far left enough that they’ll give him back his mantle as the socialist of choice.

Noteworthy in Carlson’s commentary is the fact that the DNC declined having a climate change debate. Why? Because the last thing they want is for their candidates to be spouting off radical proposals to deal with climate change on national television. They don’t mind it when candidates are talking to the base, but considering many Americans have their only exposure to the candidates during the ultra-hyped televised debates, the DNC doesn’t want the candidates scaring moderates towards the Republicans.

Conservatives were so concerned about Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and rightfully so. But this new batch of Democratic presidential candidates are completely detached from reality. It’s radical progressivism or hit the road for today’s Democrats.

Dean Cain’s label of San Francisco’s new incarceration language is spot on

Dean Cains label of San Franciscos new incarceration language is spot on

Actor Dean Cain is one of the few outspoken conservatives in Hollywood. The star of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman has taken plenty of heat for voicing support for President Trump and for calling out his progressive peers as they rant unhinged.

One of his latest critiques of leftism was in response to San Francisco’s plan to change official words that pertain to convicted felons and juvenile delinquents. In pure Bay Area-style, the city is planning on sanitizing certain phrases so as to not “further victimize” criminals.

Once we catch our breath after laughing at the way these progressives see criminals, reality sets in about how asinine – and potentially dangerous – it is to cater to the criminal aspects of society at the expense of law abiding citizens.

Here are some of the details of the proposal:

San Francisco to do away with terms like ‘convict’, will instead call them ‘formerly incarcerated person’

They recently passed a resolution containing “person first” language guidelines that all agencies and departments are urged to used.

For example, an offender will now be called a “formerly incarcerated person”, “justice-involved person”, or “returning resident.”

A juvenile delinquent will go by “young person with justice system involvement” or a “young person impacted by the juvenile justice system.”

How did San Francisco leaders find time to address this non-issue when homelessness has reached crisis-levels and their city is literally covered in human feces? Have voters become so engulfed in tribal allegiance that they can’t see the absurdity in front of their faces?

Cain’s reaction was short and perfect.

In George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, the nation of Oceania had adopted the official language of Newspeak, “a controlled language of restricted grammar and limited vocabulary, meant to limit the freedom of thought.” It’s both a partial precursor to and a necessity of socialism because freedom of thought allows deviations from authoritarian control. Whether the leaders of San Francisco know it or not, they’re building a version of Oceania right now.

As long as Americans stand by and elect leaders who are more interested in not offending criminals than solving the massive problems faced by law abiding American citizens, this lunacy will continue. San Francisco is dying.
