Ever wonder why Liberals say “gun” violence when they push for more gun control?

Simply put, they are trying to make you afraid of guns. Saying gun violence over and over and over puts the notion into people’s heads that ALL violence is committed by bad guys with guns. In truth gun control laws are not, and never have been successful in curbing violence. In fact, the gun “control” movement is about control, of you. In fact, Liberals pushing for gun control also lie when they spout their “gun deaths” propaganda. In those numbers, they include criminals killed by police officers, concealed license holders, and by Americans who kill home invaders in self-defense. 

If you are an advocate for gun control ask yourself why you should believe people who must lie, and lie deliberately to further their cause. Also look at what banning guns does to violent crime rates vs allowing people to own and in many states carry guns Gun control proponents love to point to the UK and say “see, their gun violence rate is so low. We should follow their example”. Yet, the truth is that disarming the people does not lower violent crime rates. Do not believe the lies folks.

Democrats trying to use high taxes to punish gun owners

They are dead set on destroying our most basic human right

GunsSaveLives reports the following:

There is a new anti-gun bill sitting on Capitol Hill, and it doesn’t deal with banning particular models of firearms or even universal background checks.

The Gun Violence Prevention and Safe Communities Act of 2013, was proposed by U.S. Reps. Danny K. Davis, D-Ill., and Bill Pascrell, D-N.J. The bill seeks to raise the tax rate on gun sales from 10% to 20%.

Perhaps even more disturbing is that the bill also seeks to raise the tax rate on ammunition purchases to 50%.

Davis released the following statement in a press release,

Gun violence is a daily reality for America and, in particular, for urban cities like Chicago. The crisis should outrage us all. This legislation is a pro-active approach to reducing gun violence by using proven preventive programs which have been starved for funds until now. As part of a comprehensive, multidimensional strategy to reduce gun violence, this legislation closes major loopholes in tax law and lays out an equitable, long term, sustainable strategy to provide the requisite resources.

Note how Davis fails to correlate the high crime in Chicago with the extreme gun-control laws that prevent law-abiding citizens from protecting their own life and property.

If Chicago politicians REALLY want to curb violence they might try going after guns, but that is not what they really want

Pacifism: The intellectually bankrupt solution to violence

Danny Devito is short, but who cares, he is a talented man, and funny. But, a recent comment by Devito inspired this post. Devito, commenting on “gun violence” said this

No, the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star is more gracious than that, and certainly more efficient. Here’s DeVito’s Twitter solution to horrific headlines like those out of Newtown, Conn. late last year:

“….Violence begets violence…” How can we expect anything else… Aim to Disarm

Ah, the argument that screams PACIFISM! Violence only begets violence after all right? Wrong! Violence is neither inherently good nor bad. A rapist assaulting a woman is an example of brutal violence. A man, shooting the rapist is also violent. But in that case the violence is not only justified, but it should be lauded and celebrated. Now, on first blush you might say that celebrating shooting anyone, even a rapist is a bit much. But consider that that rapist will NEVER harm another woman, or anyone else. That rapist will never cause any more harm or pain will he? Is that NOT something to celebrate?, Is a team of U.S. Marines or special forces taking out a group of terrorists not reason for jubilation? Certainly those terrorists were evil, they hunted children, innocents, and now they will do that no more.

Now, of course, to a pacifist, such logic would seem crude. After all, a pacifist sees all violence equally. A man is raping your wife, you respond by cracking his head with a baseball bat. To a pacifist you are just as bad as the rapist. That is, moral retardation at it’s worst. In fact, I can think of no better words to describe pacifism. A pacifist would say that if you respond to a violent criminal with violence you have “sunk” to the criminals level. Hogwash! If you were to NOT defend yourself, or another, then THAT is as bad as what the criminal is doing. Think of it. In acting as a pacifist, you not only allow a rape, or assault, to happen, you allow the criminal to d it again. Rather than being the “high road” pacifism is the moral low road.

The other problem with Devito’s longing for disarmament is this. A disarmed society has no recourse. The right of self-defense is surrendered at that point. Citizens would become totally reliant on the government for protection, and, at that point, all our rights are in mortal peril. when Benjamin Franklin famously said “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety” he was offering up wisdom to men like Devito. To Devito, giving up your human right of self-defense is OK if it comes with a promise of safety. Yet, history has shown that nations where people ceded their right to gun ownership received no security, only ultimate slavery, suffering, and totalitarianism.

The wisdom of Franklin though, is lost on Devito. Where Franklin could see results before they came, Devito refuses to see what history ensures us will happen.

 

What fools believe

Chris has a great example of just how clueless the Left is. And about how so much of Liberalism is about “feelings”

At churches throughout Caldwell today parishoners were asked to pray for new and stricter gun control laws. I did not join in. Not because I am pro-violence; but because I am a realist.

Here’s their spiel:

Enhanced regulation of guns by state or federal law will promote the saving of lives and the promoting of loving relationship within a healthy community.

Enhanced regulation of guns by law places the highest priority upon preventing the loss of life.

Enhanced regulation of guns by law accepts the fact that media saturated gun violence diminishes the dignity of the human person.

Enhanced regulation of guns by law acknowledges a dire need within a society prone to suicide by guns and accidental death by guns.

Enhanced regulation of guns by law is mandated for a society in love with its children and their healthy, safe upbringing.

Go read the whole thing. Chris destroys the feelings-based nonsense gun control advocates have been selling for years.

 

 

Obama the Exploiter-in Chief

Depiscable

President Obama will hold an event Wednesday with law enforcement officials and mothers of gun violence victims, marking the 100th day since the Newtown, Conn., mass shooting.

The president is looking to build momentum for a package of new gun control measures to be considered by the Senate early next month.

First off let me clear up something. To use grief-stricken mothers for this is deplorable, but the Left does deplorable very well. Those mothers are easy targets for the vultures on the Left who will do anything to get their achieve their ends. Secondly, those “law enforcement officials” are political tools, not real cops. They are walk-behinders, puppets who say exactly what they are supposed to say. 

This is going to be another episode of Kabuki Theater starring our president

 

Does the Left REALLY care about victims of gun violence? Or do they care about exploiting them?

Matt at Conservative Hideout lays it out very clearly. 

In yet another example of self defence using a firearm, a man used a gun to defend himself, and his toddler son from home invaders.  Yet, the national media chose to take a pass on covering it.

Funny how these stories NEVER make it to national news isn’t it? Media bias anyone? But Matt has more thoughts

My last post about guns and self-defense caused a big stink on some sites, where people took issue with the comment that the liberals would prefer people to be dead, as it is better for the narrative. Allow me to expand a bit: Democrats, liberals, regressives (whatever you want to call them) will not stop at taking ugly guns-they want them all.  So, at some point, their desire is to have a 100% disarmed populace.  When considering that, any example of the lawful use of firearms is detrimental to the confiscation narrative.  However, dead civilians, and especially dead children, are easily exploitable-they are convenient emotional justifications to ban guns.  However, if they ever did get all the guns, and only criminals had them, there would be even more dead children.  But, I would wager that those dead children would no longer be worth covering.  Dead children only have propaganda value in certain contexts

I hate to say it, but I believe Matt is correct. I have seen and heard too many Liberals dismiss self-defense, mock the very idea that self-defense is even possible, and even question if self-defense with a gun is moral. For the left, the only important thing is destroying the Constitution and replacing it with a Marxist Utopia. Anything that aids that cause is moral in their demented minds.

 

Biden to go on gun control tour?

Well, someone get a Gaffe-O-Meter ready, but I find this interesting because this the rhetoric Biden is talking

Vice President Biden delivered a message for rural America: He’s coming to talk about gun violence.

“I’m coming, I’m coming,” Biden said here after saying he’d read a skeptical comment in the local newspaper about the White House outreach to rural areas. “The one thing I want to make clear is this is, this message of rational gun safety is a message that will be embraced by rural communities as well as urban communities simply because it makes sense. But we cannot wait. The still voices of those children require us, requires us to speak now.”

And this is what the American people think about theeffectiveness of gun control laws

Via Breitbart:

In a Pew Research Poll listing 21 things the public believes should be government priorities for 2013, passing more gun laws is number 18 out of 21.

The majority of Americans simply do not see gun control as a pressing concern problem like President Obama and the Democrats do.

Instead, the American people are worried about the economy (first on the list), jobs (second), the deficit (third), and terrorism (fourth).

So, maybe it is not about the will of the people, but the fetish for control that Democrats have. Speaking of control, guess which issue is dead last on the list. Go on, guess, here is a hint, Al Gore would be very upset.
