Look over there at another gun law.. part 2- Why Gun Control Fails

Social theorists want to believe that gun control reduces violence.  They think that criminals who break the law will, for some reason, obey the next gun law.  These social theorists also hate the idea of armed civilians.  Let’s look a little closer at what gun-haters say and do.

Criminals don’t buy guns legally.  It may shock you that criminals break the law, but it’s an established fact.  It sounds depressing at first, but it also has a silver lining for honest civilians.  Yes, criminals break the law.  That means the laws regulating guns and honest gun owners are ineffective.  Those laws don’t reduce crime.  Said another way, we can get rid of the laws on gun registration and crime won’t increase.  Criminals don’t take mandatory background checks either.  That means we can eliminate the laws on regulating honest gun owners, and crime won’t go up.  There is less here than meets the eye.

Gun control activists knew this all along.  Michael Beard was the executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.  Michael said, “I would agree that clearly, no law is going to prevent criminals from getting handguns or any kind of weapons they want.. You can’t stop criminals from getting guns. ”   I take Michael Beard at his word.

So, if gun control fails, then how can we control violent crime?

The police say that armed self-defense works.  Cops want to be armed on the job .. and off.  Deputies and officers want their wives, sons, and daughters to be armed as well.  They want honest civilians like us to be armed so we can protect ourselves until the police arrive.

Don’t confuse what the cop on the beat says with what an appointed Chief of Police is told to say.  The two are very different.

There is more good news.  Armed women are ten times less likely to be raped if they defend themselves with a gun.  You don’t have to believe me.  You can believe the FBI report on sexual assault in 26 US cities. 

Socialist cities in the US have some of our strictest gun laws.  Those cities where guns are banned are among the most violent cities in the US.  In contrast, consider conservative cities where guns are plentiful.  They are some of the safest places on earth.  Socialism crushes opportunity and causes violent crime.  Not guns.

Why do Socialists direct so much hate on honest gun owners if guns don’t cause crime?  Socialists want an all-powerful government.  To be more precise, they want an all-powerful government that they control.  Socialists want a nation of weak citizens .. so they can feel safe.  At a fundamental level, Socialists don’t trust their neighbors.

That is almost funny given that the socialists are the ones killing people.  It would be funny except for the lives lost and ruined, and that is never funny.

Socialists kill thousands each year here in the US.  At the same time these Socialists see the National Rifle Association as a subversive force in society.  The rest of us see the NRA as a civil-rights group who teaches our sons and daughters how to use a gun safely and effectively for self-defense.

When I think about it, teaching armed defense to civilians is subversive after all.  I like it, but then again, I’m not a Socialist.

How about you?MLK freedom

    The TRUTH about the “supremacy clause” – our Constitution does not delegate to the national government authority to restrict our arms, ammunition, regulate firearms dealers, do background checks, etc. The national government may not lawfully circumvent this restriction by means of a treaty wherein the signatory governments agree to disarm their Citizens or Subjects.

    We as a nation today continue to pay for the legacy of deceit, political corruption, abuse,
    and domestic socialism of Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ): America’s most corrupt, crooked,
    and dictatorial president to date! Remember it was Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) who signed
    the 1968 Federal Gun Control Act into oppressive legislation! No, the aim was not to
    reduce violent crime, make our streets safer, or to protect the innocent. GCA ’68, like
    all anti-gun legislation, is not only predicated upon elitism, socialism, and political deceit,
    but is instead intended to target, harass, and discriminate against the innocent honest
    American gun owner! Johnson’s corrupt lieutenant inside the U.S. Senate in 1968 was
    the late Thomas Dodd (D) of Connecticut. Dodd himself was later censored by his own
    peers and colleagues for political corruption, abuse of power, and likewise abuse of the
    public trust! Yet why do we never hear of this today? Bear in mind J. Evett Haley’s 1964
    book: “A Texan Looks At Lyndon: A Study in Illegitimate Power.” Also, Barr Mclellan’s
    2003 book “Blood, Money, and Power: How LBJ Killed JFK” which is likewise available
    for public viewing at You Tube. In addition to LBJ the corrupt Earl Warren Supreme Court,
    not to mention the Warren Burger Supreme Court, both remain collectively guilty of everything alluded to LBJ, including Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, and many others of their rotten treasonous ilk! JPFO, Inc. “America’s Aggressive Civil Rights Organization” at has since 1989 exposed the Nazi roots of GCA ’68, the link between gun control and genocide, state sanctioned terror against unarmed and defenseless civilians, etc. The John Birch Society in Appleton, Wisconsin at and respectively, has for over 50 years been exposing government cover up, media censorship, and considerably more. Of course, not once will any of what I allude to above ever be taught, much less tolerated, in our government controlled socialist public schools, colleges, universities, and academia. And that is a crime within itself!

    An armed citizenry can defend itself against criminals, with neither the help or assistence of “government”, which is often more of a problem than a help.
