“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good” — George Washington
The anti-Second Amendment Marxist, Barack Obama, relies upon attacks by terrorists or crazed lunatics to bring cries for bigger, more powerful government to protect us. It’s the same incessant cry always heard from tyrants; give up more freedom in exchange for a promise of security. Every leftist in the country follows Obama’s lead and shamefully exploits tragic events by madmen and terrorists. Consequently, to further their political agendas they do what they do best; attack lawful American gun owners and innocent people by grandstanding and self-aggrandizing.
They use manipulative hyperbole, and emotional rhetoric to push for legislation that has proven repeatedly not only ineffective, but fatally destructive. Like vultures, these zealots immediately circle every despicable shooting by an outlaw, insane person, or terrorist, and use the tragedy and suffering of others to gain an upper hand in implementing their anti-gun tyranny.
These organized attacks are not just on firearms; they are indeed, personal attacks on every American’s freedom who dares defend themselves, their families, and their homes.
It’s obvious to even the densest anti-gun fanatic, that criminals ignore ALL gun-control laws. Therefore, it’s evident that the quest for additional limits on guns remains focused on disarming law-abiding citizens. The facts are irrefutable; restrictive gun legislation disarms or makes criminals of lawful Americans. In other words, gun control only restrains law-abiding Americans! Control of the people is the ultimate aim of all big governments.
Criminals rely on tyrannical government to disarm the public, thus allowing thugs and gangs unrestricted domination of our streets, neighborhoods, and cities. U.S. cities with the strictest gun laws have the highest crime and murder rates. Witness the Democrat-controlled cities of Chicago, Washington, DC, Detroit, Baltimore, and on, and on.
Americans must face reality; it’s apparent that over the last several years, the New Socialist Democrat Party is a mortal enemy of gun owners and the Second Amendment. It’s equally clear that further legislation amounts to placing a bull’s eye on the backs of innocent Americans gathered in gun-free zones, as well as those cowering in fear in their undefended homes.
None of the proposed laws by the fanatical left will reduce gun violence or murder rates in this country. However, under one plan, purchasing or selling a gun from a neighbor, friend, or relative, we would pay for a background check and hope for approval and blessing from the federal government. These extended background checks are another back door, roundabout attempt at registration that allows the government to know who owns guns, what type they are, and where to find them.
Not a word emanates from the mouths of Obama, or any Marxist about the real causes of crime and murder rates in this country. Most violence comes directly from inaction and misguided programs by federal, state, and local governments.
The free exercise of American rights under the Second Amendment does not cause violence.
Here are just a few of the shortcomings, incompetence, and corrupt bureaucracies of government that do result in lawless, senseless mayhem and murder:
• Failure of the liberal courts and the justice system in general to PUNISH criminals
• Failure to build more jails and prisons
• Early release and catch-and-release of criminals; including violent felons, and illegal aliens
• Plea-bargaining and reductions of sentences
• Left-wing lawmakers, state and federal, who consistently and shamefully twist, manipulate, and distort, every societal issue to bestow the victimhood label on criminals, not on real victims; innocent citizens
• Failure to address illegal aliens pouring over our border with drugs, guns, and human cargo
• Overcrowding of prisons, then release of illegals and felons to reduce the overflow
• A corrupt government-controlled educational system that, especially in the inner cities, fails to give young people even a rudimentary education and then dumps them on the streets without sufficient skills to compete in the world
• Gun-free zones that leave unarmed groups of people at the mercy of thugs or armed terrorists
For decades, few talked about long guns of any kind, rather the national discussion was on handguns. Then came the ban on scores of long guns, and Bush let the ban expire because evidence revealed the nation was no safer and there was no increase in mass killings after ten years. To leftists, firearms represent everything that’s evil. The unvarnished truth is that they believe the very existence of the Second Amendment is malevolent.
Concealed permits are under constant attack. By declaring gun-free zones and limiting where one can legally carry a weapon, tyrants hope to make it so restrictive as to make concealed permits worthless. With one such limit, only the most naïve, ignorant, and convoluted of liberal minds could imagine and implement a system of declaring schools as “gun-free zones” to prevent shootings.
Some notable quotes from Obama, the anti self-defense President, should tell everyone where the leftist-in-chief stands:
• “I am consistently on record and will continue on record as opposing concealed carry.”
• “I believe in keeping guns out of our inner cities.”
• “It’s a scandal that Bush didn’t renew the ‘assault weapon’ ban.”
• “If you need 19 rounds to shoot a deer, you probably shouldn’t be hunting.”
Here are some notable votes by Obama:
• Voted to uphold civil actions and lawsuits against gun manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and importers of guns and ammunition.
• Voted to ban hundreds of common rifles and shotguns.
• Voted to uphold local gun bans in Illinois.
• Voted to uphold prosecution of people using guns in self-defense.
Obama and his Marxist cult know they cannot ban all gun rights at once any more than a boa can instantly kill and devour its prey. They do it slowly, one contraction at a time. It’s one more reason they must destroy our Constitution.
Little-by-little, one step at a time, Obama, and his ilk formulate their “reasonable rules.” Dictates which are, in reality, slow narrowing and constriction designed to squeeze the life from our Second Amendment and devour our guns.
Knowing what Obama said publicly, what’s in his writings, and knowing the history of the anti-gun radicals, does anyone believe them when they say, “Nobody is coming after your guns?” Disarming America is not a solution or answer for violence; rather it is one of the principal determining factors for the violence raging through the streets of this country. An unarmed nation is a nation on its knees, and that is exactly where the leftist tyrants want Americans.
The free exercise of American rights under the Second Amendment does not cause or exacerbate violence; It provides the same protection from evil-doers and dictatorial government envisioned by our Founders!
For one to see the tragic results of liberal politics and gun control that disarms lawful people, one needs to look at cities and states controlled by the New Democrat Socialist Party. Here, despots ban guns outright or restrict them as to make their right to own guns and defend themselves, a cruel joke. These areas throughout the country are microcosms of what liberals want for the rest of the country.
When liberal-progressive government is in control of peoples’ lives, they must keep citizens, disarmed, poor, uneducated, indoctrinated, and dependent. Take a stand against our government, the media, and the entertainment industry. Under no circumstances, allow them to cast their tyrannical, liberal, spell over this great land. Your personal safety is in YOUR hands; trust it to no one else!
