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.

The complete fraud that is socialism

The complete fraud that is socialism

Once again we are witness to the age-old scam of socialism with Leftists making promises to attain power that can never be fulfilled.

Long before Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago exposed the systematic oppression, torture, incarceration and deliberate mass murder that are the hallmarks of socialistic slavery. James A. Michener documented the 1956 Hungarian uprising against communism in his book ‘The Bridge at Andau’. While both are great literary works, ‘The Bridge at Andau’ laid bare the complete fraud that is the collectivist ideologies in creating a ‘Heaven on Earth’ or ‘worker’s paradise’ that never comes to fruition.

The selling of socialistic slavery to a new generation tends to follow a certain type of ‘progress’. Promises are made for all kinds of largess ranging from Free Healthcare, Free Housing, Free College, Free food to even Free income. All paid for with other people’s money. Never mind that It’s impossible to fulfill all of these wondrous asseverations. Appearances must be made to at least begin the process, so the ever-present task of wealth redistribution begins at the point of a gun.

This is also why the Socialist-Left obsesses over gun confiscation and the suppression of free speech. It is imperative for the Leftists to disarm the people since they generally object to having their property stolen from them. However, we are getting ahead of ourselves, this is to document how this exploitation of the people has ‘progressed’ in other collectivist enclaves to better understand how this crime against the people is perpetrated.

Why do collectivist regimes always require secret police apparatus and the suppression of Liberty?

This question was detailed in The Bridge at Andau in the chapters on the ‘AVO man’. In which he discusses the secret police organisation of the Hungarian Communists, the AVO (Allamvedelmi Osztaly). He bluntly asked and answered the question:

Why must communism depend on such dregs of society?

No matter on what elevated plane communism begins its program of total dictatorship. it sooner or later runs into such economic and social problems that some strong-arm force is required to keep the civil population under control.

As is the case now as it was then, a nation’s Socialist-Left will promise just about anything to attain power over the people:

When communism is wooing the workers in Csepel, all kinds of exaggerated promises are made if they seem likely to awaken men’s aspirations and their cupidity. These promises are couched in such simple terms and such effective symbols that they become immediate goals of the revolution.

Review briefly what communist agitators had once promised the Hungarians who appear in this book: consumer goods such as they had never known before, increased wages. increased social benefits, shorter hours of work, improved education for everyone, a greater social freedom, and a government directly responsible to the working classes. Under communism such promises were never even remotely capable of attainment.

[Our Emphasis]
If all of that sounds eerily familiar, it’s because that’s part of a very old song and dance that has deceived many a generation into enslaving themselves under socialism. Consider this recent story from the Associated Press:

Democrats lurch left on top policies as 2020 primary begins

NEW YORK (AP) — Democratic presidential contender Julian Castro launched his campaign by pledging support for “Medicare for All,” free universal preschool, a large public investment in renewable energy and two years of free college for all Americans.
….

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who is expected to launch his presidential campaign soon, has sponsored legislation to create a federal jobs guarantee program in several communities across America.

The pilot program… could ultimately transform the U.S. labor market by providing well-paid government employment with benefits for anyone who wants it.

[Our Emphasis]

As Margaret Thatcher so aptly surmised, eventually they will run out of other people’s money. In our case in the states, that is already the situation given the enormous debt and unfunded liabilities reaching into the stratosphere of trillions of dollars. Of course, this hasn’t deterred committed collectivists such as Democratic mayor Bill de Blasio who recently stated that ‘There’s plenty of money in the world… It’s just in the wrong hands!’ Never mind that it is morally wrong to steal the property of others or that once a society turns down the dead-end of socialism there will always be more people wanting more money from those who have it.

Wealth redistribution scams will always wreck the economy. A socialist regime that nationalizes the economy can never function better than one of economic Liberty. Soon enough everything breaks down, the people see through the lies and the government has to start breaking heads. Thus it is imperative that they have previously confiscated the people’s guns and made it illegal to defend themselves.

The Takeaway

Socialistic schemes always run contrary to basic human nature. Rewarding someone for not working will always result in less work. Conversely, punishing someone for working will also result in less work.

This basic logic of human nature seems to be lost on Leftists. But perhaps it is not. They have to know their schemes have never and will never work. And yet they still try to impose them on everyone else. Perhaps they know of the epic fraud they are continually perpetrating on society, but they don’t care. That will be the subject of our next installment.

Dan Crenshaw: Only six Democrats voted to pay federal employees affected by shutdown

Dan Crenshaw Only six Democrats voted to pay federal employees affected by shutdown

While most were drinking the mainstream media Kool-Aid that Republicans and President Trump are responsible for keeping paychecks out of the hands of federal employees affected by the government shutdown, a bill was brought to the House floor that would have paid them their first paycheck of 2019.

It failed. Despite six Democrats voting in favor of the bill, the Democratic majority shot it down, preventing their political pawns – the 800,000 people directly affected by the government shutdown – from getting paid.

Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) pointed it out and received a good amount of interactions on Twitter, but most in mainstream media refused to run this narrative-busting truth.

It’s crystal clear to anyone paying attention that their anti-wall rhetoric is driven by the good optics they’re getting from the press. If the people would stop being sheep and listen to that quiet voice of reason in the back of their minds, they’d realize two things:

  1. Democrats don’t oppose the wall. They oppose giving the President a win. They will keep the government shutdown going as long as possible and any attempts to help the people affected by it will be shot down.
  2. All of the false claims about the wall are politically motivated outside of the realm of common sense. The latest talking point, that the wall will be ineffective, is contradicted by every statistic that compares illegal immigration with or without a wall.

This is clear proof the Democrats have no desire to help the people if it means taking away their leverage on the President. Given the choice between paying federal employees or harming the President politically, they chose political expediency.

To understand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, we must look at her worldview

To understand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, we must look at her worldview

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has baffled people on both sides of the political aisle since her meteoric rise began. She has an uncanny ability to say silly things and get away with it, at least when her mainstream media handlers control the situation.

One quote she made during her political campaign caught many people by surprise because it was so blatantly wrong, even left-leaning PolitiFact had to rate it as “Pants on Fire!”

“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.”

This is either a bald-faced lie or it’s a reflection of her backwards worldview. I’m going with the latter. After watching her speak and how she responds to questions, I don’t believe she’s some political mastermind who is manipulating the Democratic world to bend at her will. I think she sincerely believes the falsehoods she’s peddling.

Does she think the world is going to end in 12 years? Yes. Does she believe we’ll “just pay for” the $32 trillion Medicare-for-All? Yes. Does she think unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs? Yes. Her ignorance would be adorable if it weren’t so dangerous.
