“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
― Jeff Cooper
“Guns are our friends because in a country without guns, I’m what’s known as “prey.” All females are.”
― Ann Coulter
“The constitution shall never be construed…to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”
― Alexander Hamilton
Yesterday in my post I made a plea as to why it would be unconstitutional to take away the gun rights of people who are law abiding citizens. I wake up this morning and what do I see? “Biden, Harris Move against Guns Before Getting into Office, ‘It’s Past Time.’
As usual, very predictable behavior for the left. And also right on time is the immediate play on your feelings instead of trying to do something besides taking our guns. And while every atrocity committed with any type of gun is a tragedy, let’s take a look at three of the big cities in the country where gun violence is rampant.
First however, let’s venture to the where they always go when they want to threaten to take away our guns, Sandy Hook and the make believe land of feelings. Yes, it certainly was a tragedy and a useless waste of life (except for the gunman), by an individual that was as sick as this gentleman was, could have gotten a weapon in many different places. Playing on peoples feelings is intellectually dishonest and not a fair representation of lawful gun owners. Biden addressed the survivors by saying this:
“Together with you and millions of our fellow Americans of every background all across our nation, we will fight to end this scourge on our society and enact common sense reforms that are supported by a majority of Americans and that will save countless lives.”
In NY, Chicago and Los Angeles, gun violence has skyrocketed, and they have some of the toughest gun laws in the nation and the are all under democrat control. Coincidence? I don’t think so. The left has a version of “common sense” that leaves much to the imagination. IN NY, from November 2019 to November 2020, shootings have doubled! Shootings in Chicago have doubled during that same time period and they were already way above normal. And finally, in Los Angeles, the city of Angels, shootings were up by 33% and fatal shootings by 25%. Remember that Chicago has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation and is still producing record numbers of gun killings.
So, what can the democrats do to enact “common sense” gun legislation that already hasn’t been implemented in cities that they control? My first suggestion is to get rid of the democrat mayors. They have allowed gun violence to take over our cities, they let our cities burn this summer through riots and looting and they enact insane laws such as no bail for certain crimes.
The left has this very strange trying to play on the feelings of people. They can’t possibly use facts in a case like this because the facts wouldn’t support the idea that everyone who “clings” to their guns is a rabid frothing child killer. They know it isn’t true and so do we. But yet, they will push on and every chance they get they will thrust the picture of those children at Sandy Hook, or any other gun tragedy into the spotlight because, remember, feelings rule the day, not facts.
But push on they will, in an attempt to take our guns and erode our Constitutional Rights.
