It’s not exactly a traditional argument, but it’s certainly appropriate here. The fact is that there is no point in arguing with liberal gun-control advocates because their argument is never in good faith. They slander gun owners as murderers. They lie about their ultimate aim, which is to ban and confiscate all privately owned weapons. And they adopt a pose of reasonability, yet their position is not susceptible to change because of evidence, facts or law. None of those matter – they already have their conclusion. This has to do with power – their power.
You can’t argue with someone who is lying about his position or whose position is not based upon reason. You can talk all day about how crime has diminished where concealed carry is allowed, while it flourishes in Democrat blue cities where gun control is tightest. You can point to statistics showing that law-abiding citizens who carry legally are exponentially less likely to commit gun crimes than other people. You can cite examples of armed citizens protecting themselves and their communities with guns. You can offer government statistics showing how the typical American is at many times greater risk of death from an automobile crash, a fall, or poisoning than from murder by gun.
But none of that matters, because this debate is not about facts. It’s about power. The liberal anti-gun narrative is not aimed at creating the best public policy but at disarming citizens the liberal elite looks down upon – and for whom weapons represent their last-ditch ability to respond to liberal overreach.
Put simply, liberal elitists don’t like the fact that, at the end of the day, an armed citizenry can tell them, “No.”
FK – Well gee, I’ve been preaching the need for “Liberal”(commie) trash season for 15 years. I had a bumper sticker that read “When guns are outlawed, liberal season begins.” It wasn’t big enough to add the standard: ‘…and the newswhores die first.’
And calling them ‘liberal’ and ‘progressive’ and the other cute names the communists labeled themselves with to hide their evil only helps them in their propaganda war, and real physical war, against the Bill of Rights and those who claim to love human Liberty.
There will never come a time when our globalist/communist domestic blood enemies throw up their hands and say “Oh sorry we bothered you. We’re going home now to live in peace and Liberty with our neighbors.” We will have to hunt them. They will force us to it.
We tried back in the 90s to organize a militia force to deal with this evil. But too many, then as now, were too cowardly and too afraid of losing their mortgages, 401Ks, bass boats, SUVs, big screen tvs, and on and on. The Founders would spit on us.
Things will have to get much worse before they get better, and this is to our benefit. We would be better off with a Hitlery in the now red house for it will do what the Marxist mutt has done: Sold more guns and ammo than the klintons ever thought about, woke lot’s of sheeple up and pissed lots of people off, and it may yet do something so arrogant that even the most pathetic and cowardly ‘conservative’ or ‘libertarian’ or ‘pro-gunner’ would finally accept and prepare for the reality of what will be required.
With a RINO NWO hack in the now red house the repbulicrats and ‘tea partiers’ go back to sleep. Dubya did as much damage to our country and the Bill of Rights as the current tool, but too many are too blind to see that. Waking up is a multi-level process and most get so far along, get scared, and crawl back in their shells to wait for a savior. How pathetic.
