Let’s talk gun control

Soooo, immediate and predictable was the response by the short sighted minds to lay blame at the feet of an unthinking tool: the gun made me a killer! Let’s dissect this a bit shall we.

It’s the automatic weapon that fires non stop that is the culprit. Really? Did you ever see a shotgun in the hands of a skilled instructor such as Tom Knapp? Did you know that a shotgun can do more damage than an ak-47 when used properly, or improperly?

If the shooters (killers/monsters) had ended the lives of 50 people with a Berretta 12 gauge, would there not be STILL the same reaction, and call for ‘gun control?’ Of course, and only an honest person will admit this.

If a man walked into a nursing home on the 4th floor, and systematically shot in the head 75 patients with a handgun, would there STILL not be the same reaction and call for gun control? Of course, and only an honest person will admit this. But the reason the automatic rifle gets all the press time in the eyes of the short sighted is because it plays to a narrative, a narrative that ignores:  (a,) killing is against the law regardless how it is done, and substitutes: (b,)  guns are evil in themselves and must be curtailed or even removed completely.

Hmmm. Ever seen a ak-47 go up against a tank rolling down the street? Absolutely useless, and a poor ‘killing machine’ against a bigger and stronger force. And this mere fact alone should send shivers up the spine of the shallow headed, that HAVING such a machine in the tool shed, will make others think twice before ransacking your house with a nefarious desire to steal, destroy, or even kill you and every one in your house.

Wait until foreign bodies invade your streets, or even your own government, and you will wish for the day that you had a shotgun or ak-47 for a back up, as opposed to your threats to the invaders with a plastic spoon.

It is against the law to kill people, be it with a screwdriver, a boy scout knife, a rope, a baseball bat, or a frozen lamb chop. The gun lobby is correct when they refuse to give an inch. Then it will be two inches, then a yard, then total surrender, and THIS is a problem for the law abiding citizen who has no protection against the godless and power hungry.

Take away a mans rights to defend his life, home and loved ones, and you just wrote a ticket to his own demise, for WHY should the lawless care about taking your life when you have no means to protect yourself? Again, the shortsightedness of the liberal mind that pretends evil does not exist, preaches everyone will wake up and ‘live in peace.’ Yeah, ok, sure. Ignore the fruits of sin to your own wishful thinking.

Killing is wrong. It is brutal. Putting crying children in front of the camera does not move me, as I can see through the drama. But why doesn’t ONE murder by a thug in Chicago move the politicians? Why is it always about the number of the deceased that moves people to prejudice? Why don’t you hear about 50 murders in Detroit, or better yet, why don’t you ever hear of the countless times a grandmother killed an intruder who wanted to kill her son?

It’s the narrative stupid. But it is against the law to murder people. Yet killing an intruder is not murder. But nooooo, a thousand warning signs were ignored by the actions of the deranged, who gave clues, and left bread crumbs that he was about to end the lives of people with a machine gun. People say they care, but they prove otherwise. They care allegedly AFTER the killing spree, but are mute to lift a finger so as to possibly spare the unnecessary deaths. Then the further carnage by the media.

I say school buses are far worse than guns. Imagine a lunatic hijacking a school bus with a hundred kids and driving it over a cliff. It’s a crime to highjack a bus and drive it over a cliff. It’s also against the law to drive the bus over the cliff with children in it. The bus is a tool. The gun is a tool. When handled properly, they are very useful. When in the hands of monsters, anything is a killing machine.

Gun control? Ha! Practice target shooting; your control will increase, but the gun is as harmless as a dove.

 

(But why post this and the vid? Because shooting is a sport, and protection is necessary.)

    Funny that CS, please explain a couple of things, why the mass murder rate in the US is higher than any other developed and English speaking nations and why would Amnesty International on Wednesday issue a travel warning for the U.S.?

    Your country is 10th as far as the most mass shootings per capita in the world. It is higher than the Philippines, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Mexico, so why would that be?

    the United States has had over 255 mass shootings in 2019 as of August 2019, why is that, can it be because Trump is a white supremist or is it because they watched a violent video game and cannot control themselves and any nut job can buy a gun?

    By the way, I understand what a weapon of any calibre and form or any explosive devices can do to a human due to my long ago active military service and my long past life as an explosive inspector. I do not just target automatic military weapons; however any sort of reform may actually do some good.

  2. If sklyjd is referring to the Adam Lankford “study” which reached that conclusion that the mass murder rate in the US is the highest in the world, that conclusion and the so called study are both bogus. According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, crimeResearch.org, the US is #66 in mass shootings in the world. You should go to that website and get the facts. Lankford has refused any independent fact checking and the dominant media simply repeated his claims without checking his data or methodology.

      I did not quote any Adam Lankford or claim the mass murder was the highest in the world. Regardless of the statistics, they are exceptionally high for a country that is considered as developed, wealthy and civilised with a funded police force. Is this acceptable by Americans, and if one or more of your loved family members became a victim of a mass shooting would you still believe it is acceptable?

      Or do I dare to suggest that you just pray and hope they went to heaven and believe it was God’s will?

    That’s right, fool yourselves into talking sense. I thought Christians were into preserving lives not wasting them. It is all very well to say sin is at fault, but the temptation of sin is encouraged with the country being awash with guns and the availability of guns to the mentally insecure. Surely this is serious and should be a priority of the people who care and love all people, don’t you think? I guess you can simply look the other way and claim it is God’s will.

  6. Oh boy, where to start? Dude, the reason people want to ban automatic firearms is because they can kill a large number of people within a small time frame. In your ‘nursing home’ scenario, there is no way they would be able to kill 75 patients with a hand gun. For starters, he would have to aim accurately each time, and before long law enforcement would be able to stop him, or several of the other patients could be evacuated. So yeah murder is bad, but these crazy mass murderers wouldn’t be able to kill nearly as many people, so not having automatic guns is a very good start. A recent case in point: The Dayton gunman killed 9 people before the police stopped him. How long did it take them? 30 FREAKING SECONDS!

    You say you worry about defending your home or loved ones etc from criminals. Well if guns were regulated much more in America, then it would be much harder for those criminals to get their guns in the first place. Why do you need a gun to defend yourself, when its only purpose is to kill?

    You say: “Hmmm. Ever seen a ak-47 go up against a tank rolling down the street? Absolutely useless, and a poor ‘killing machine’ against a bigger and stronger force.” Exactly! If a foreign force or your own government decides to invade you with tanks, mortar and fighter aircraft, what are you going to do with your pesky gun collection to defend yourself? I mean, you’ve never had to defend against your own government in the history of your country, but still…

      • Hi CS. I think you’re missing my point. We both agree that murder is bad. Allowing people to own automatic rifles is to enable those who want to kill. You’re basically saying “hey, if you wanna kill someone, why don’t you kill a few extra people while you’re at it?” As far as I’m aware, automatic rifles don’t serve any other purpose than to kill.

        If guns are useless against tanks then they will serve you no purpose if your country got invaded or if your own government decided to enslave you. THAT was my point. I mean, I don’t think you have to worry about that, but it just goes to show how ridiculous and paranoid some of you gun supporters are.
