Have You Seen “Real” Gun Control?

December 4, 2019

I watched them on the news. I saw rich politicians with security details tell me to give up my money and my guns. Some politicians promoted gun control after they accepted campaign donations from rich billionaires. These people are saying one thing while they do another. These politicians, and the people who donate millions of dollars to fund gun-control, have no need to go armed. They hire people to protect them. They have their own security services, while we have to protect ourselves. They aren’t anti-gun. They are for corporate and government gun ownership, while they speak against private and personal gun ownership.

Government security

Here is what real gun-control would look like without hypocrisy, and, frankly, I haven’t real examples of gun-control. Please use the comment section to tell me if you’ve seen what I’ve missed.

-Billionaires and rich politicians will never walk into a store and shop for groceries or Christmas presents on a rainy night. They have cooks and personal shoppers who do that for them. I bring this up because parking lots are one of the favorite places where criminals hunt for victims. Billionaires and elite politicians certainly won’t walk across a dark parking lot at night by themselves. You, on the other hand, live a different life than they do. You probably walk across a dark lot by yourself several times a week. You face risks every day that billionaires and rich politicians will never see again. You deserve the right of self-defense.

-The billionaire may own a bank, but he doesn’t have to walk up to an ATM at night to get cash. Billionaires and rich politicians hire people to do that for them. You are the one who has to go dangerous places alone in the dark. So does your family. You deserve protection, just like the rich billionaire.

-Billionaires and rich politicians seldom drive themselves. They hire chauffeurs and limousine services to take them where they want to go. In contrast, you walk into a gas station/convenience store at night. You watch the news and you know that isn’t safe. Who is there to protect you? Elite politicians have bodyguards with them, but for us, the police are 11 minutes away. You have the right to protect yourself.

-We face risks every day. We are the ones working behind the counter at fast food jobs, at convenience stores, and at a small retail businesses. Most of us don’t have armed security guards at the buildings where we work. Elite politicians do. Most of us have to protect ourselves at work as well as at home.

-We are the ones who drop off our soiled clothes at a dry cleaners after work. We cross a dark street to get to public transportation.

Our lives are different than the people who make our laws and who report our news.

Billionaires and rich politicians have armed security details to protect them. They have servants who drive them, who feed them, and who clean their clothes. Even the spokesmen for gun control have security guards.

Security guards for anti-gun protesters

Billionaires and rich politicians don’t need to provide for their own defense. They want corporate security while outlawing the private security that you provide for yourself and your family. They want you disarmed so that they are the only ones with guns. Unfortunately, they are willing to contribute millions of dollars to get what they want.

That kind of money buys an awful lot of politicians and votes, but I have a modest proposal.

Let him who is without a security detail cast the first vote.

If you want me disarmed, then lead by example. If our streets are so safe, then give up your bodyguards. If you want my family disarmed, then fire your security staff at home and at work. Send your protective detail home if you’re a politician. Fire your bodyguards and personal staff if you are one of the billionaires funding the gun-control movement. Show me that the world is safe for my family.

Let your family walk alone at night the way my family does.

I haven’t seen that sort of leadership from the people who speak for gun-control. I can’t take gun-control advocates seriously until they walk the walk. Rather than hear what they say, I learn from what they do. If the world is too dangerous for the elites to be unarmed, then I want my family protected too. I want my family to defend themselves until the police arrive. Isn’t that what you want for your family and friends?

There may be an honest advocate of gun-control out there. Please leave a comment with your examples if you see one.

I gave you 700 words. Please share them with a friend. RM

    I am for gun control, which for me includes a firm & supple grip, an easy smooth trigger pull and hit what you are intending to hit. Now that is gun control. Everything else is about firearms registration, confiscation and ownership limitations.
    Now to the 2nd Amendment. It is the second shortest of all amendments. Note the regular nouns in the amendment that begin with Capital Letters – Militia, State and Arms. These words were capitalized because they were deemed important by the founders and back then they did not use bold, underline or italics.
    Militia was defined by George Mason as all the people except for a few politicians. Militia was basically all of We The People. Arms speaks for itself. Now State. To the founders, England, Germany and France were each a State. And at the time of the writing of our Constitution, each one of the original 13 was also a State.
    What is missing in the 2nd A discussion is that this Amendment is not about target practice, hunting or even self-defense. No, the 2nd Amendment is about protecting the security of your free State. The 2nd Amendment is the only Constitution Amendment that speaks to DUTY. Duty never ends, never goes away and is always extremely and very personal. What do you need to have and own to protect your free State? The founders worried about an overreaching, over controlling federal or state governments. This is exactly what we have allowed to happened. We need the 2nd Amendment more now than they did then.
