#GunPrideMonth is the perfect time for a calm, rational discussion about the true causes of violence.
Our friends on the national socialist Left love to bring up the issue of guns in the context of a ‘serious crisis’. Tying to make it seem as Corey Booker falsely claims that there is a mass shooting every day. Well, its been several days since one of those occurrences, so that is clearly a lie. Even the Washington Post has made it clear that gun homicides have dropped substantially over the past 25 years in this article: Most Americans incorrectly think gun-murder rates have become worse, not better.
However, for the Left they have convince themselves of the righteousness of their causes, so making something up here or lying there is perfectly acceptable to them, never mind that reality shows them to be complete frauds, ‘in the aggregate’.
At least it used to be that way. Now the Liberty Grabber Left has come out of the authoritarian closet with a full court press for socialism and gun confiscation [funny how those two things go hand in hand?]. At this point in time, it’s a case where they haven’t stopped complaining about guns, despite the violence rationale dropping out of the news.
It’s time for a calm and rational conversation about the basic human right of self-defense.
The Liberty grabbers are at a decided disadvantage in having these discussions in a relatively calm environment. It always seems to work best for them when emotions run high and they can run around with the hair on fire screaming ‘we have to do something –anything – about guns, now before we rationally think about it too much’. Well, they usually don’t add that last part, thinking is the last thing they want anyone to do.
The fact is a research study from Northeastern University demonstrated that: Schools are safer than they were in the 90s, and school shootings are not more common than they used to be. Facts like that don’t help the Liberty Grabber Left in their gun confiscation quest, so such things are ignored. It’s better for them to engage in their usual routine of making things up and repeating them ad nauseam until they are believed as the truth, thanks to the admonitions of socialist luminaries Hitler a Lenin.
A discussion on the underlying causes of violence instead of inanimate objects.
We’ll begin with a video from a year ago from the Warrior Poet Society on Why Gun Control is NOT about GUNS:
[Note that even he mistakenly states that shootings are getting worse.]
He points out that the worse thing we could do is establish so-called ‘Gun-Free’ zones where mass murderers can have free reign. Most mass shootings since 1950 have taken place in ‘Gun-Free’ zones.
This leads to the larger point that even if the Liberty Grabbers got their wish and confiscated every gun from the innocent, the criminals and the government would still have them to prey on people.
Still further, making the point, even if those of evil intent didn’t have guns, they could use other means: explosives, poisons, edged weapons, vehicles..
He makes the last point that this is a recent phenomenon, unheard of 50 or so years ago. This is partly due to the glamorization of these killers in the media.
One change has been in the culture and in our society and the fact that many of these killers have grown up in fatherless homes. An article from last February pointed out that Of the 27 Deadliest Mass Shooters, 26 of Them Had One Thing in Common: fatherlessness.
The Liberty Grabber Left would like to have a ‘Conversation’ about gun confiscation. We of the Pro-Liberty Right want to Keep our freedom. Despite the lies of the Left, guns aren’t a growing epidemic. But they do stand in the way of the Socialist-Left attaining their desired authoritarian power. Thus they keep on bleating about the ‘problem’ even though its diminishing in intensity.
The intent here is to have that ‘conversation’ and prove that it’s NOT a question of guns, but of the breakdown in our culture induced by the Left. They would prefer it to be about guns, and how fast and how soon they will be confiscated.
