A recent Facebook post on an accidental death prompts me to set things straight on gun control. Gun related deaths are relatively few compared to other causes like hammers or swimming pools, the list goes on. So why the hype? What is so scary about guns? One can be killed as easily by a car or baseball bat, not to mention smoking and eating fatty foods. Yet, you don’t see many posts about hammer control. The answer is simple: Guns are a threat to the left, so they use fear and brainwashing to push their agenda. Are socialists afraid of being shot? Do they have a special sensitivity to gun deaths? No. They couldn’t care any more if someone died of a gunshot, accidental or not, or got fatally hit by a bus. Why would anyone? Both are preventable and accidents happen, especially around stupid or careless people, that will never change. The left is about taxation, and it is much harder to tax an armed population. What happened to the British in 1775 is a prime example. The only reason for gun control is the support of taxation and population control. It has nothing to do with reducing accidental gun deaths or shootings, nothing! If it was about saving lives, there are numerous more important causes that need support.
Keep Kids Safe
If you support gun control, ask yourself why. I mean, really, aren’t other things more important and more urgent? Why don’t you make a list of pressing issues with more victims than gun related ones? I suggest you make yourself a sandwich, get some water and go to the bathroom before you start, because it will take you a while before you get to guns. The truth is that by promoting gun control online you are promoting taxation and control, your taxation and the control of your life. While it might not be a noticeable issue yet in the United States, your future might be at stake. Don’t fall for the brainwashing and peer pressure, think for yourself. If you want to save lives, donate money to the NRA, they have wonderful gun safety programs. The solution is education, not control. Don’t be a sheep.
Self Defense is Baaad!
There is nothing you can do about guns. The cat is out of the bag. Guns exist and are not going away. Criminals have them and can always find them. The only people affected by gun laws are honest citizens. Many are your friends, even family members. They have children, love their wives. They go to family picnics with their kids, pay taxes and respect the speed limits. They just like shooting as a hobby, hunting or want to be able to protect their families and communities, you included.
If you have an irrational fear of guns, the best way to cure it is not by preventing others to own one. It won’t reduce your chances of being shot, on the contrary. You should go to a range and take a class. You will meet the nicest people imaginable, friendly and family oriented. They will be glad to help you discover a fun activity that might one day save your life. What more could you ask for?
The United States is still ahead of all others when it comes to freedom, and the best measure of it is the ability of honest citizens to own weapons. There is no better barometer of freedom, none.
