December 14 2012. On that very same day, two madmen on two different continents involved in two different events. And in comparing them we learn a great lesson about the liberal mindset behind gun control.
In the first case we have a man living in a nation with the most strictest gun control laws, Communist China. ( 1 ) Armed with nothing more than a knife, the 36 year old invaded and elementary school and slashed 22 children in a brutal attack on the innocent. ( This only two years after a similar incident where another Chinese man slashed and hacked 28 children at an elementary school )
In the second case we have a man living in the United States, a nation with more lenient gun control laws. In this case a 20 year old man shot 26 people at an elementary school including 22 children. ( 2 )
The first event passed on the news pages with only the slightest of mention, while the second event has been the subject of endless reporting in the media. Reports replete with hand-wringing and smarmy moral posturing about gun violence in society provided to the population as a pretext to justify virulent calls for new gun control restrictions on the American people.
And as disgusting as is the thought of 5 and 6 year old children being gunned down, this author finds more disgusting the thought that the man volunteering to lead the charge for more restrictions on Second Amendment rights is our own President Obama.
Yes, President Obama. The man intimately involved with the trafficking of THOUSANDS of high powered weapons to the Mexican drug cartels. Obama, the man whose Fast and Furious guns have been directly linked to the shooting of HUNDREDS of Mexicans and the murder of at least one US law enforcement agent. Obama, the man who just 4 years ago was using these very same shootings in Mexico as a pretext for demanding more gun restrictions on US citizens, this of course BEFORE the revelations about his reckless campaign to stimulate gun sales to Mexican drug lords was uncovered.
During his speech to the nation shortly after the shooting, this very same Obama began the call for new laws to do ” more ” to stop gun violence. And in zombie like lock step, the arrogant politicians, media know-it-alls and Hollywood know-nothings began parroting their support for Mr Obama’s campaign. This included one particularly hypocritical Senator from California, Diane Feinstein. Feinstein, who secretly packs a pistol on her own person and who travels the nation with her own cadre of armed body guards, insists that the rest of us are not to be trusted with guns. No, the rest of us peons and serfs need more restrictions and confiscations. She has even proposed ALL gun owners be finger printed and monitored like the average felon. And since birds of a feather flock together, it was not surprising to hear the Communist Government of China ” demanding ” more gun restrictions on American citizens too.
NOTHING they propose will do a thing about crazy people who intend to harm the innocent. It will only do what it has done in Great Britain and Australia: INCREASE armed attacks by criminals on the population. Since the implementation of their draconian gun laws armed crimes including rape, assault and home-invasions have sky-rocketed leaving the average person damned. If they get a gun to equalize themselves with a criminal they go to jail. If they don’t, they risk death at the hands of the violent. (3)
Worse still, they deprive the people of the ability to check the power of arrogant governments who have from time immemorial ALWAYS abused their people.
And make no bones about it. When I refer to violent criminals I am referring both the the type that prowl our streets daily…. and the ones who prowl the halls of government. Both are terrified that their victims might be armed and both will do everything they can to abuse the vulnerable. This is why we always see the most arrogant and abusive of politicians proposing gun restrictions. They want the freedom to abuse the American people.
If you want common sense gun-control I’ve got a three step process we can implement right away to stop gun crime. First, you arrest and then deport all those associated with the Fast and Furious scandal, sending them to the Communist nation of their choosing, NEVER to return. ( Starting with the President ) Second, you strip every governmental building of it’s armed guards and ban the use of personal security details for all the politicians and Hollywood types nation-wide. This will ” raise the awareness ” of those remaining in government to the personal risks we all face. Third, you grant a blanket Letter of Marque to every law abiding citizen and let us get down to the business of eliminating the criminal element.
I guarantee you, within 3 years, this nation will be rid of madmen whether they be criminals on the street..… or the tyrants that prowl the halls of government. And with the balance of power back in the hands of the average citizens, our children and our children’s children will be able to live their lives in an America supremely safe.
