When Liberals Lie About Guns

“If you wish the sympathy of the broad masses, you must tell them the crudest and most stupid things.”   ~ Adolph Hitler ~

When someone lies trying to sell you anything, you can bet it’s because they’re hiding something.  They know if you discovered the truth, you wouldn’t buy whatever it is they were trying to sell.  And that is why you’ll never hear the truth from Liberals that sell gun control as the pathway to crime control.  

Anti-gun Liberals have flat lied about the crisis” of gun violence, particularly where children are concerned.  These stories of children dying due to guns (13 per day) are pure bullchips.  In fact, gun deaths involving children under 14 are at the lowest in years according the Center for Disease Control--142 accidental deaths in 1997 and gun homicides for that age bracket totaled 346 for that year.  Swimming beat those death rates among children at 1,010 in 1997!  

Another fact you never hear from gun controllers are the instances revealing the estimated 2.5 million cases annually where people are saved from harm because of guns.

Then we hear the disingenuous calls for gun registration and how that will deter crime if this piece of “common sense legislation” is enacted.  Again--Bullchips!  The only thing registration creates is a database detailing the location of guns and who owns them so that when it comes time for their “common sense confiscation program” they know where to find them. 

This very same common sense they reference however, tells me that any criminal who disregards the laws against murder, robbery or rape will never respect any law that requires him to register his guns.  Who honestly thinks that we would ever see any criminal register any firearms?  And who honestly thinks that registration of and by lawful citizens will have an impact on crime?  All this “common sense” hasn’t worked in Australia or England.  Registration there led to confiscation and now provides criminals with thousands of unarmed victims. 

Why do they hide these facts?  Because they know the truth won’t sell the case for more laws and restrictions on the American people.  Therefore, the truth of why they want more gun control must be based on something other than child safety or crime control.

Gun control is about power and domination, not safety or crime control and most thinking students of history know it—including left-wingers.  Simply put, people that have guns dominate those that don’t.  As Jefferson said:

“Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not.”

The attacks on pro-gun groups and the Second Amendment, the way the left exploits tragedy to further their agenda infuriates me as it should all Americans. 

The left uses periods of extreme emotional distress and outrage immediately following any shooting to focus the anger of unthinking masses toward a target they have defined and that target is you and your guns, not the criminal.   They do so to enrage the public and then push for new laws that will further their agenda.   Why?  The only way they can incrementally disarm America is to convince an emotional population that more restriction is needed.  They know that were they to enforce existing assault laws, there would be no reason for additional laws, but that would not serve their purpose so they define the target and ascribe guilt.  

When someone is allowed to define guilt, political enemies become the guilty.  Those in power always define “truth”, and rights are of secondary importance compared to the pursuit of power. 

We know gun control doesn’t equate to crime control as demonstrated in England and Australia. Liberals know it too, but most others are apathetic which is exactly what modern liberalism recognizes as vital to success.  Edmund Burke rang steel when he wrote:

 “For evil to succeed only requires a good man to do nothing.” 

The true objective is ever increasing control of a weakened populace—and a disarmed public is weak indeed.  As George Mason, co-author of the Second Amendment foresaw:

“To disarm the people[is] the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”

Governments just can’t effectively control 80 million armed citizens and the left-wingers know it—particularly if those 80 million are strongly united.  But does the average American realize this?  Does he even care as long as the TV works?  I doubt it.

The Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) report that in the 20th century alone, there have been approximately 56 million killed where gun control and confiscation was enacted prior to the slaughter.

JPFO interviewed one who lived the nightmare that disarmament helped to create in Europe.  Theodore Haas, former prisoner of the infamous Dachau concentration camp, recalls the aftermath during an interview with Aaron Selmas of the JPFO:

Q. ) Did the camp inmates ever bring up the topic, "If only we were armed before, we would not be here now"?

A.) Many, many times. Before Adolph Hitler came to power, there was a black market in firearms, but the German people had been so conditioned to be law abiding, that they would never consider buying an unregistered gun. The German people really believed that only hoodlums own such guns. What fools we were. It truly frightens me to see how the government, media, and some police groups in America are pushing for the same mindset. In my opinion, the people of America had better start asking and demanding answers to some hard questions about firearms ownership, especially if the government does not trust me to own firearms, why or how can the people be expected to trust the government?

There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the people were not  "brainwashed" about gun ownership and had been well armed. Hitler's thugs and goons were not very brave when confronted by a gun. Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half starved group of Jews took up 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazis.

  If 10 handguns in the possession of half starved Jews were that effective against armed Nazis in Warsaw, how effective would 200 million guns be in the hands of 80 million active Americans?  No wonder the liberals fear you and want to confiscate your guns! 

If anyone doubts that confiscation isn’t the ultimate goal of all this proposed “common sense legislation”, consider this revealing exchange reported by the NRA on the U.S. v Emerson case under the Clinton Administration …

Early accounts from those who attended oral arguments on U.S. v. Emerson have revealed, with no uncertainty, how the Clinton-Gore Administration truly views our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. The attorney representing the government, William Mateja, reportedly said that the Second Amendment offers law-abiding U.S. citizens no protections against the government prohibiting them from owning any firearm. Judge William Garwood, one of three judges on the panel, asked Mateja if it was the government's position that it could "take guns away from the public," and "restrict ownership of rifles, pistols and shotguns from all people," to which Mateja responded, "Yes."  ~ U.S. v. EMERSON ORAL ARGUMENTS:  June 2000 ~

There was not one statement of concern for any possible violation of the Second Amendment.  Reason:  they just don’t care about it—it doesn’t fit their agenda. This is a liberal trademark—if the Constitution doesn’t support your goal, ignore it and push on.

“We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans ...”

~ Bill Clinton, President of the USA, (USA TODAY, 11 March 1993, page 2A) ~

Make no mistake.  We are facing a cultural war brought on by the lies and actual intent of modern liberalism to supplant, subvert and circumvent the Constitution.

Convincing the uninformed and apathetic that our traditional way of life is endangered however is a hard sell—especially since we must also fight a liberal press!  Until most realize and accept the reality of the liberal intent as personally threatening and get angry, we will have a hard time winning the fight. 

This fight is for freedom and not a question about child safety.   The only aspect of this struggle that I can say is for the children” centers not on child safety but on the kind of country we are about to leave to our children.

In my view, the essential elements of America’s ability to retain life and liberty are the Truth of God and a free mind connected to a well-trained trigger finger. 

So the next time someone advocates gun control as the solution, ask them "Your aversion to the truth runs the risk of seeing millions in this country exterminated or enslaved. With what group do you suggest we start the process?”

Just the view from my saddle…
