If Gun Grabbers Got It All

July 4, 2017

What would happen if gun-prohibitionists got what they wanted and disarmed honest citizens?

Last month, a Democrat tried to kill many Republican politicians on a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia.  Within minutes and as expected, gun prohibitionist politicians said we needed more gun laws.  What would happen if the people who want you disarmed had their way?  The prohibitionists asked for universal background checks and more gun-free zones.  Would that work to stop even a single mass murder?  Let’s see what would happen if the prohibitionists got what they wanted.

The murderer who attacked Republican Congressmen in Alexandria bought his gun legally in Illinois.  Illinois is one of the most anti-gun states in the US.  The murderer had a background check before he ever touched a firearm.  He passed more background checks when he bought his rifle and handgun.  He filled out all the forms that the anti-gun advocates want filled out.  In Illinois, he even needed a state permit and background check to buy ammunition.  He passed them all.

These congressmen and their staff were disarmed because they worked in and traveled through “gun-free” Washington, DC.  Five people were injured in the attack even though the attack lasted approximately 5 minutes. The victims survived because they were extremely lucky and they received prompt medical attention.  None of those firearms regulations stopped the murderer because gun laws only stop honest gun owners.  Is this failure an isolated exception or is it the rule?

Let’s look back at the murderer who attacked gay men and women at the Pulse Nightclub last year in Orlando, Florida.  The murderer passed many state and local background checks.  He even had a security clearance by a federal agency and passed their background checks as well.  The murderer bought his guns legally in Florida and passed those state background checks.

The Pulse Nightclub was a gun free zone due to the Florida law that requires all bars that serve alcohol to be gun-free zones.  You’re prohibited from bringing your legally owned gun with you even if you don’t drink.  There were also two armed security guards at the Pulse nightclub.

The murderer shot his way through security to enter the nightclub.  He murdered unarmed victims for over three hours. 58 people were injured and 49 more were killed.  The murderer was finally stopped when police broke down the walls so that the surviving victims could escape from the club.  Disarming the victims was supposed to make them safer.  Background checks and gun-free zones failed again.

There was a mass murder at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.  The racist murderer shot 9 black men and women.  The murderer also left one person with non-fatal injuries during his 6 to 7 minute attack.  The murderer bought his handgun legally and passed a federal background check.

In 2015 when the attack took place, all churches in South Carolina were off limits to legally licensed concealed carriers.  There is an exception if the church governing board has granted prior permission to a licensed concealed carrier.  These victims were disarmed but the murderer wasn’t.

Also in 2015, a muslim couple attacked their co-workers at a County Health Department Christmas party in San Bernardino, California.  California has some of the most restrictive gun-control laws in the US.  All legal gun owners have to pass a firearms safety test.  California gun owners can only buy one gun a month.  California state law limits the magazine capacity of firearms owned by civilians.  There is a 10-day waiting period after you buy a firearm before you may take possession of it.   The murderers passed their background checks performed by the California Department of Justice.  The guns they used in the attack were purchased legally.  The husband and wife couple killed 14 people and wounded 22 others during the attack.

The murders took place at the San Bernardino California Inland Regional Center.  This is a gun free zone under California law.  The victims were disarmed because they work in government offices.  They were disarmed because there is a school and daycare facility in the Regional Center complex.  The victims followed those firearms restrictions while the murderers ignored them.  There was no physical security to stop armed attackers from bringing weapons into the buildings, nor were armed security personnel pre-positioned across the campus.

A lone gunman killed his professor and 8 other students at the Umpqua Community College near Roseburg, Oregon.  9 other students were also injured.  Oregon state law requires a background check before civilians can purchase a handgun, the weapon used by the murderer.  The guns used in the murders were purchased legally by the murderer and his family.

The victims were unarmed.  Some of the students near the murder scene were gun owners, but they were not allowed to carry their legally owned firearms onto the campus.  (See comment below.) The Umpqua Community College is a gun free zone under Oregon law.  Even the security guards are unarmed.  The murderer shot students for 11 minutes until he was finally shot by police.  I’m noticing a pattern here.  Are you?

The list goes on.  We could document the same factors involved at the Isla Vista murders near the University of California at Santa Barbara.  There, 6 people were killed and 14 others were injured.

We might say that the murderer at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut was an exception.  He did not pass a background check.  This murderer shot his mother in the head while she slept.  He murdered his mother in order to take her firearms and then attack a school.  The Connecticut mandatory background check law did not prevent her murder and the murder of 27 other victims.  There is more than historical evidence that gun control fails.

We have evidence every night from Chicago, Baltimore, Newark and Los Angeles.  The ongoing failure of gun control only seems to goad the anti-rights gun-prohibitionists to demand more regulation of honest citizens.  Murderers don’t follow the law and submit to background checks.  Only their victims do.

Gun control fails, so why do gun prohibitionists continue to call for more?  Their goal is not public safety but citizen disarmament. They want us disarmed, not the criminals.  By disarming honest citizens, we’ve might have reduced a few preventable gun accidents.  We produced unstoppable mass killer rampages instead.  I don’t want my friends and family to be the next unarmed victims.

I gave you a thousand words.  Please leave a like, share, or a comment. RM

    The gun grabbers will never quit, nor will they ever admit to being wrong about their position. We just need to demonstrate, once and for all, that being armed will make us a safer, less violent society. The facts prove it…and there are no alternative facts that say otherwise. If there were, we would have heard them by now. And I have yet to hear anything coming from their camp that has much truth to it. This has become a bloodsport to them.

      The gun grabbers will never quit because they are not really “gun grabbers”. They are “people controllers.” Firearms is merely one of the issues they are using in their desire to be the elite on top of all of us peasants, determining how much freedom and liberty we get to have. If it’s not guns… it is something else.

      That’s why your “demonstrations” are meaningless to the leaders. Yes, some in the general public will benefit… but let’s not lose sight of the real motivations behind those who are against us.

    ” I don’t want my friends and family to be the next unarmed victims.”

    Yea . . . me either . . . but they don’t care.
    ACCEPTABLE LOSSES, that’s what we are.
    Waddaya-wanna-bet that CONCEALED CARRY RECIPROCITY goes NOWHERE.

    Wadda-ya-wanna-bet that WE QUICKLY RAM THROUGH the right of LAW MAKERS (now in addition to their LAW ENFORCEMENT personnel) to keep and bear arms, everywhere, all the time, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. (I mean REALLY not infringed, or regulated, or limited, like 10 round magazines??? THAT WOULD PUT OUR LIVES IN DANGER!!!)
    Scum peasants.

    LAWS, are more important, than CITIZENS. Evidently, by the theme I am noticing, as to WHO is IMPORTANT ENOUGH to have the uninfringed right to legally bear arms for self defense.

    (I, personally, would consider the above result to be UNACCEPTABLE!)

      I think National Reciprocity will pass. We will also need to make sure those states not willing to allow their own citizens to carry are held accountable to the new law.

      We are nearing a divide where many are at the point of ignoring any gun law that runs in opposition to what the 2nd Amendment says and means. There is no misinterpretation…it says what it means and nothing less. Its the legislators that need to be held accountable, not the citizens…at least that’s my understaning of how our political system is supposed to work.

      Our expectations of what government is and should be have run amok…time to reel all the politicians in on both sides…

    The guns are all gone……but the goblins aren’t. They will go about their business with much more enthusiasm knowing they won’tget capped.

      With a disarmed populace any 3 orcs with a bat and a kitchen knife constitute an effective home invasion team.

    Gun grabbers are sick. They are unable to think out of the box and they all suffer from transference syndrome.

      So, does that mean because they don’t trust themselves, we shouldn’t trust them either…lol?

    “The Umpqua Community College is a gun free zone under Oregon law.”
    Well, sort of, For those who do not hold a Concealed Handgun License this is true. However if you do have a CHL only courthouses are gun free zones.
    This does not stop many local governments trying to ban guns in defiance of the preemption law.
