Demand a Plan, but Don't Demand More Gun Control
Last month we watched evil personified at Sandy Hook Elementary
School in Newtown, Connecticut, where a young man rounded up twenty six- and seven- year old children and shot and killed
each one of them, along with six adults at the school. Our elected
officials immediately began to demand we need to pass legislation to
stop this horror we have seen repeated so often in the last decade or
so... Columbine, Virginia Tech, the Aurora Movie Theater. Some sick
individual gets a gun and chooses to take out a lot of innocent people
to get a little recognition before leaving this mortal coil. We find
that there were always signs, some "issue" with the individual. This is
not about the guns, it is about the individual who chooses to commit
We must understand that the government will use this, and
has already started to attempt to force more useless gun control
legislation on the law-abiding American public. No matter what they
say, the Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment for a reason, and
that reason was to prevent the federal government from becoming too
powerful over the people. It was to keep the people free from a
tyrannical government. Throughout history, gun registration laws and
gun control have ultimately led to tyranny, fascism, and the murder of
tens of millions of people. Stephen P. Halbrook provides excellent
research on why the American people must resist the registration and
confiscation of firearms of law-abiding Americans in his article Registration: The Nazi Paradigm.
when the founders wrote the Constitution the weaponry they used were
muskets, and we hear it argued that they never would have imagined the
high power, high-capacity rifles and firearms we have today. Some say
we should only be allowed to keep muskets. In his article on Trevor
Loudon's New Zeal Blog, Citizen Scribe writes:
a common meme among the disarm-the-citizenry crowd? How about that old
chestnut, “the Second Amendment only protects muskets, since the
founders couldn’t have anticipated modern weaponry.”
Seriously? You’re telling me that science and technology
makes our rights obsolete? Is that why you have to get a permit to buy
a television or radio? Modern rotary presses are all federally
licensed? You can only buy a car after passing an FBI background check?
And those modern building materials in your house; that’s why
government agents can just walk in any time they please?

you hear the arguments of our officials, understand that gun control is
not the problem. Statistically, gun free zones have emboldened
criminals and sick individuals to commit their violent acts, knowing
that they will meet no resistance from their innocent, unarmed victims.
Those cities with the highest gun violence and crime rates are those
with the strictest gun control laws. The data is irrefutable, the
argument for more gun control weak and unsubstantiated.
we have the celebrities who do these idiotic public service
announcements, tools (in every sense of the word) of the government.
They decry gun violence, while earning their living making the most
violent, graphic movies they can. How many have full-time armed
security to protect them wherever they go? In the video below, you see
what hypocrites they truly are.
Be smart. Demand better mental
health care. Demand harsher penalties for those who commit gun crimes.
But do not demand more gun control!
Warning: the video features strong language and violence.
