Control Liberals, Not Guns

In the aftermath of the Colorado massacre that left a dozen people dead during a midnight showing of  “The Dark Knight Rises”, liberals from under every rock are emerging, as they always do during such devastating moments of violence, and demanding more gun control laws to keep guns away from, and out of the hands of, those of us who are responsible, law-abiding American citizens.  The big plot hole in their story, of course, that makes it so unbelievable, is that the people killed in this massacre were not killed by a responsible, law-abiding American citizen – were they?

In other words, if murder by guns in America really were carried out by responsible, law-abiding American citizens, liberals would have an unbreakable argument.  The fact that gun violence and murder is carried out exclusively by irresponsible, law-breaking  American citizens (and sometimes by illegal aliens) shows that liberals have another, more diabolical, mischievous, dangerous and anti-American agenda they are attempting to pull on the American public.

Taking guns away from responsible, law-abiding American citizens will not save one person from becoming another murder statistic by a gun.   But – allowing responsible, law-abiding American citizens to carry/conceal may very well help to prevent some murders.  Certainly, guns in the hands of responsible, law-abiding American citizens, can do more to hinder and thwart and halt a potential criminal with a gun from carrying out a cold-blooded murder.

Are liberals really concerned about the level of gun violence in America and the murders committed by guns?  The reason why the answer to that question is emphatically and resoundingly “No” is due to the fact that liberals only concentrate on removing guns from the hands of responsible, law-abiding American citizens.  Whenever cold-blooded murder occurs (which is every day in America), and in particular when it is gangs carrying out the murder, liberals never call for more gun control laws to prohibit gang-bangers and other criminals from obtaining and using guns.

Of course, it is much easier to prevent a responsible, law-abiding American citizen from obtaining and using a gun, and perhaps that is one reason why liberals shy and cower away from demanding more gun control, restrictions and penalties on and for criminals who use guns.  The only response we hear from liberals on this issue is for more tax-payer funded police to patrol the streets; more tax-payer funded government programs and services to curb, “assist”, those in so-called poverty from being led down a path to criminal behavior.  In other words, while liberals blame conservatives for gun violence, liberals never actually blame the criminals themselves who use guns to commit their crimes.  And when criminals do commit crimes, liberals blame conservatives.  Make sense?

Never once do liberals demand that criminals own up to their own mistakes, or demand criminals take responsibility for their own criminal actions and criminal behavior, or even acknowledge that criminals are capable of knowing right from wrong.  Liberals say it’s society’s fault for why someone becomes a criminal and uses a gun to commit a cold-blooded murder; thus, more tax-payer dollars needs to be invested to find out why people turn to criminal activity and to prevent criminals from “being born”.  It’s all a sham, and conservatives need to keep up a very aggressive fight against this anti-American insanity.

Owning guns is an American right, and one in which our founding fathers were committed to ensuring for at least two extremely important reasons.  First, they were concerned, rightly, about America being attacked again by Britain or from another enemy and it was absolutely imperative that Americans be ready at a moment’s notice to take up arms in defense of American interests.  Hence, “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”  Obviously if one did not own a gun, there was a very good chance that “one” probably didn’t know how to use a gun either, which would have made them absolutely useless “at a moment’s notice”.  People who own guns, at least back it the time of our founding, know, and knew, how to use them.

Secondly, the right to bear arms was heavily influenced by the fact that some English kings, like James II, attempted to disarms his Protestant citizens, which would have made those citizens far more vulnerable to being attacked and killed by an over zealous King and his army.  The founding fathers wanted to ensure American citizens would not only be ready to defend America from its enemies, but also for American citizens to protect themselves, their families and their property.

Obviously, the “well-regulated Militia” part is somewhat obsolete.  However, the ability, and the right, for each American citizen to be able to protect themselves, their families and their property is not obsolete.  When liberals get their way and, by law, are able to keep guns out of the hands of responsible, law-abiding American citizens, who would use their guns to defend themselves, their families and their property from criminals who would seek to harm and kill them, liberals will have successfully made every American citizen that much more vulnerable to being attacked by criminals, who will not have any fear of retribution when attacking them because a criminal with a gun in his hand will always have the upper hand against a responsible, law-abiding American citizen who has no way to defend himself.  How does that make sense?

Liberals who demand gun control are the real threat to America, to American sovereignty and to American independence, to us, our families and our property.  Control them; muzzle them; make liberals and liberalism in America illegal, not guns.  A gun in the hand of a responsible, law-abiding American citizen wields an enormous and awesome power which has resulted in America remaining as independent as it has since its founding.  If and when we lose that right, how does that make us more secure and more independent?  And, how on Earth does confiscating guns from responsible, law-abiding American citizens take away even one gun from one criminal?  When liberals can answer that, maybe they will have a legitimate argument.  Until then – stand your ground against the criminals, and against the liberals who would seek to make you and your family more vulnerable to the criminals.
