Bigotry Against Gun Owners, and why guns are not like cars

December 4, 2016

Big city socialists are waging a propaganda war against honest gun owners.  One of the myths they frequently roll out is that “We don’t regulate guns.”  The person who makes a statement like that either has never been anywhere near the firearms industry, or they are a paid liar.  I’ve owned both cars and guns, so let’s compare and see if we really regulate guns anywhere like the way we regulate motor vehicles.  Is this responsible regulation, or is it anti-rights bigotry hiding behind the mask of public safety?  I use this humorous comparison to illustrate the serious discrimination faced by firearms owners today.  car-vs-gun

  • Without asking for government permission, you can own a car you keep on your property.  In contrast, big city politicians regulate the guns you keep in your locked closet.
  • You can buy a car from your neighbor without a background check, but you might have to wait a 14 day cooling off period before your neighbor could sell you another gun.
  • You can buy car parts without a permit, but some states require you to obtain permission before you may even touch a gun in a gun shop.  Socialist politicians abuse the human right of self-defense.
  • You can buy gasoline without a permit, but some states require a special permit to buy ammunition.  Don’t expect to buy ammunition if you are from out of state.  So much for “..shall not be infringed.”
  • You can let a friend sit in your car without a background check, but it is a felony in some states if your friend holds your firearm.  Criminals certainly don’t obey these gun laws, so the laws are passed to oppress honest gun owners.
  • We have public parking places for cars, but the government doesn’t provide free gun storage outside “gun-free” zones.
  • Child Protective Services won’t knock on my door if I post a picture of my child holding a steering wheel, but some gun owners get a government official knocking at their door if they post a picture of their child holding a gun.
  • My wife can park her car in front of our house.  No one blames her if her car is stolen, but big city socialists blame a gun owner if her gun is stolen from inside her house.
  • We don’t shut down highways because cars are too noisy, but we shut down gun ranges for any excuse at all.
  • We don’t send cops and tow trucks to your house if your spouse loses his drivers license.  We send cops to gun owners houses if their spouse fails to renew his firearms owners registration card.  That is cultural cleansing, not public safety.
  • You can buy a car in a few hours, but innocent citizens die while they wait for state permission to buy a gun for self-defense.  Gun ownership is not respected as a human rights if politicians can vote it away.
  • The news media and big city socialists don’t call for a ban on cars when a muslim terrorist uses his car to run over university students, but the media and politicians will eagerly blame honest gun owners and call for more gun control..even when a gun wasn’t used in the attack.

We routinely see our big city politicians exempt themselves from the gun laws that apply to everyone else.  That hypocrisy doesn’t get much coverage in the news. I’m not surprised since the media lies about gun owners.  The result is worse than hypocrisy.  We’ve lost the ability for honest citizens to protect themselves.  Our rights have been infringed and it costs lives.

The rest of the United States sees falling crime rates, but our Socialists controlled cities are increasingly violent places to live.  Big city socialists blame gun owners for their failed social experiments.  Well here is a news flash for them.  Stop the bigotry.

Bigotry is blaming an innocent group for a perceived wrong, and honest gun owners didn’t break the socialist’s gun-free fantasy.  Their big city fantasy doesn’t work, and gun owners are not to blame.

I’m tired of the anti-rights bigotry spread by big city Socialists and trumpeted across the publicly traded media.  Let’s hear them advocate for the real human right of self-defense instead.

Stop anti-rights bigotry now.

    10,329 – Non-suicide firearm deaths in 2014 (includes Assault, Undetermined Intent, and War)…

    35,398 – Automobile deaths in 2014…


    Cars are the bigger danger, by a factor greater than 3.

      Doctors are even more dangerous, 440,000 preventable hospital deaths each year.

        How does that relate to this article?

        Simple, Rob:

        You’re more likely to be killed in an encounter with a doctor this year than in an encounter with a gun.

      Here’s the thing… accidental gun deaths number around 500 a year. Accidental automobile deaths number 35,398, as you said. The rest of the gun deaths are intentional, not accidental (or, more accurately, negligent). WAY more people die from automobile accidents than gun accidents. Obviously, guns are many times safer than automobiles. What gets me, though, is that liberals (and tainted conservatives and ‘gun guys’) preach that people should have a ‘gun safety’ course before being allowed to own or carry a firearm… How much would a gun safety course help out a gang member (who gets his gat illegally, anyway) or other criminal intent on killing someone anyway, be ‘safe’ with their firearm? I get very weary of people saying a gun safety course should be required before being allowed to own a firearm. Is it a good idea? Yeah, but it won’t reduce crime, and it likely won’t reduce the already incredibly firearms low accident rate.

    “We don’t send cops and tow trucks to your house if your spouse looses his drivers license. We send cops to gun owners houses if their spouse fails to renew his firearms owners registration card.”

    LOSE: deprived of or cease to have or retain (something).
    2.become unable to find (something or someone).

    Set free; release, untie, unfasten, release

    Why do so many people confuse lose and loose?
    And these:
    Their, there and they’re
    Its and it’s
    Were, where and we’re

      Fixed it for you.

        How do these earlier comments relate to the article? By adding some perspective to the relative “danger” of both automobiles and firearms (or medical procedures), a rational, rather than emotional, evaluation can occur… but only if the evaluator sets aside personal visceral emotional responses and adopts a logical, reasoning process. The gun banners and government busybodies pushing gun control appear to be motivated by their phobias, deliberately ignorant of the relative hazards, and incapable of even considering any possible benefit of firearm ownership.

        They apparently do see the benefits of automobile ownership, and accept the hazard that accompanies these multi-ton death machines and the fact that we allow 16-year old kids to operate them.

        They recognize the benefits of medical providers, even though human error by those same doctors, nurses, and others can and does lead to death in way too many instances.

        If one suggests a benefit of personal ownership of firearms such as self-defense to a gun banning advocate or politician, the typical reaction is one of outrage and denial.

    Let’s not forget that cars go through rigorous safety testing and government regulations, there are laws regulating where you can drive a car and how you can drive a car, and an army of law enforcement out patrolling the streets to ensure that you are operating your car within these laws, and licensing and training is required to operate cars in public. There are 300 million guns in the US, and about 253 million cars in the US. Despite all this, cars kill more people through their proper legal and intended use than guns do through their illegal and improper use.

    If you think regulating guns like you do cars will somehow reduce gun deaths your not only smoking crack, but you also suffer from severe mental disorders.

      And you feel that guns go through no testing? On what so you base that? The federal government has a long list of test, including a drop test, that every firearm has to pass. In addition, some states such as California, require additional tests on every firearm. So the ideas of less or lighter regulation is stupid.

    It’s not gun saftey that’s the issue, its Rules of Engagement that needs a mandatory class.
    When an Ex-Marine cop gets fired for NOT shooting someone he judged to be trying to commit “suicide by cop”, it’s clear that civiian and civilian agencies are WAY too trigger happy.
    Liberals try to solve the trigger happyness by taking away triggers, literal and metaphorical. Conservitives dont even try.
