Why Gun Control is stupid, impossible, and un-American

(GLOBALINTELHUB.COM - 3/14/2018) -- We have to chime in on the fake artificial 'gun control' debate.  As we explain in our book Splitting Pennies – the world is not as it seems.  Proponents of ‘gun control’ claim that if these shooters couldn’t get assault rifles they wouldn’t be able to become shooters.  Bollocks! 

First let’s speak practically.  Gun control in America is IMPOSSIBLE.  This is proven by the surge in Gun Sales every time there is talk of gun control.  What, the police will go knocking door to door and confiscate guns?  These liberal idealists never visited the south.  Chicago is not much better.

Second – Guns are a part of America’s history from the beginning.  Like it or not, Americans were rebels that literally were work from home soldiers by night, trade smiths by day.   America did not have a professional army.  Most soldiers had little or no training.  They just had guns.  And beer.

Third – The logic of this narrative has been flipped in order to force a policy of social control, i.e. the police can have guns and the population can’t (although if we look at the number of random shootings, police shootings are far more likely to happen than school shootings, but no one is talking about taking guns away from police?  In Britain they just carry big sticks, it seems to work for them).  School shootings should indicate LESS gun control generally for the population.  We should REQUIRE that teachers, principals, and janitors all have permits and are trained in urban combat. 

Fourth – Weapons are one of America’s largest businesses.  The biggest buyer – the US Military.  But also, small arms are actually the world’s #1 killer, more than nuclear bombs and all other weapons combined.  “Gun Control” in the world’s largest Gun producer is like having AA meetings at a bar.   

Limiting weapons like assault rifles or requiring a license to operate them would be a reasonable logical step, in South Carolina it’s possible to legally buy a tank (an armed one).  But these are big changes which will not be easy for 90% of America (that’s 90% by land mass, 40% based on population).  For the libtards in ‘safe zones’ living in gated communities with their transgender confused children it won’t be difficult for them to turn over their guns they don’t even know how to use them and are afraid.  So this is the polarity that is being charged at both ends.  “There are two Americas”

If we are really to ‘disarm’ the population should we not also ‘disarm’ the military?  Especially since most of these shooters are somehow connected or involved with the military directly or indirectly (or military programs for crazy people).  How about defunding black ops like MKUltra and the $50 Billion ‘black budget’ that goes who knows where (well we know one of the programs was called ‘BITCOIN’ .)

Take care, readers.  Be safe.

p.s. Should we ban violent movies and video games?  But Hollywood would lose 90% of their business!

Article reads like an 8th grader from Tel Aviv's homework assignment.

The Gun Grabbers missed their window of opportunity. It's clear what's coming down the pike, and millions of Americans won't be giving up their firearms for any reason. "...pry it from my cold dead hands" will come to pass.

Video games desensitizing an entire generation to violence.

Pointing and shooting at human figures for points, killing as entertainment.

Yet the problem is the guns.

Just observation.  Back when I was a kid, we had a rifle team and an armory in my school - yes, 8 year-olds with .22's would get on a bus every Tuesday to go to a local shooting range.  I took my first rifle to Show and Tell - nobody thought anything of it ... and there weren't any school shootings.  When I was in High School (1500 students), there wasn't a hunting season that didn't see dozens of trucks with fully stocked rifle racks in the back windows.  We had fights and disagreements and cliques and bullies ..... and there weren't any school shootings.  The biggest "threat" we faced were knives .... which is odd looking back at how readily available guns were.

The first actual shooting at school I ever experienced was when I was going to a Junior High School that was 80% black - and it was gang-related and happened after school.  It never occurred to us that someone might come into the school and shoot random people.

At that time, however, we didn't spend 20-40 hours a week, for years on end, behind very realistic virtual weapons gleefully blowing the shit out of each other - sometimes pretty graphically.  While most people can discern between the virtual and the real, some people can't make that distinction - and the realism of violent games is only increasing.  Games may not create mass-shooters, but they seem to allow certain unstable minds to cultivate or feed fantasies which, over time, may not prove to be enough.  It's been documented that extended exposure to porn can cause an increased appetite for more and more extreme content (i.e. desensitization), so it's not much of a stretch to think that extended exposure to graphic violence (especially violence without consequence) might unhinge the already unstable mind.  If simulations weren't effective for desensitization, why would the military spend millions of dollars using video games to train soldiers?

Not really.  Just some floppy assertions.

A recent study found no correlation between video games and violence.  And I've been watching porn for decades and if this hypothesis is right then I would be into...well I was going to describe something absolutely vile and bizarre but rather than go into graphic detail I think you get my point.

Anyway, is food for thought.

I agree. Been watching porn since a very early age, when my Dad taught me of it. I haven't degenerated into anything more gross or severe. Just plain old male and female gettin it on. Don't even like back door stuff, at all. 

Yeah, it may affect others differently. But I've never felt like viewing anything that isn't normal. And for the record, GAY AIN'T NORMAL!

okay, what agency or government do you work for? Come now, fess up.

Here let me help you out, agent.

List of "gun laws" in the US:

https://www.theguardian.com/world/interactive/2013/jan/15/gun-laws-unit…

How many gun laws do we have? It is estimated anywhere from 9,000 to 20,000.

Besides your "premise" that we must do something needs to be addressed.

Why's that?? After 40+ yrs of failed social policies, failed "free trade agreements" and failed monetary policies we should assume or believe our government can fix anything? They created the problems we face and you think they somehow, with some fairy dust, will fix "gun" violence?

Pshaw!

How about we address why people are violent? We know that gang violence in major cities is a direct result of the "drug war". We know the majority of "gun deaths" are in restricted to these inner cities and the weapon of choice isn't an "assault rifle", it's the handgun.

Wanna end inner city "gun" violence? Rescind all drug laws.

Domestic abuse we know stems from one issue, money and the lack thereof. Wanna end/reduce domestic violence, END THE FED.

Why are our children so depressed, desolate and angry? What future have we created for them? "Hi, welcome to McDonald's, wanns super-size that"???

Want to end violence in schools? Let's renegotiate and/or end those "free trade agreements" that have forced millions worldwide into perpetual poverty and desperation.

Naw, I'm sure if we just "ban" any object that can be used to kill someone else will solve all our problems...like magic.

Gun control has nothing to do with stopping inner city crime, Gun control isn't about stopping people from using handguns to kill people, Gun Control is people control. By removing the semi-automatic Rifle, that looks like a scary military firearm, but ISN"T, they will make it easier to later remove all semi-automatic firearms and in doing so will prevent the American people from being able to protect themselves from the rogue government intent on controlling the American people and establishing their "New World Order", their one world government. They must never be allowed to disarm the American people.

A reason why gun control is impossible is that there are already 300-500 million guns floating around out there.

Even if you banned the sale of guns today there is still plenty around for generations.

 

If I were an avid gun owner the thing I would be doing now is stocking up on ammunition, as a better way to control guns would be ammunition control.

"Limiting weapons like assault rifles or requiring a license to operate them would be a reasonable logical step"

There is nothing fucking reasonable nor logical about such nonsense.  If something is good enough for We, the taxpaying citizens of this country, to buy for our government, it's good enough to buy for ourselves.   This notion that government is more trustworthy than the citizens is pure hogwash.  Let's compare the number of people killed by our government to those killed by private citizens, shall we?  So much for your reason and logic, dip shit.

People want to have the option of being able to kill anybody, anywhere, anytime and with any type of Gun for no reason. America is a very angry and violent place, and I can't see that changing anytime soon.

That's why I have one of those evil, black Mossberg 590A1 tactical pumps. It's nasty looking so I (hopefully) don't have to shoot anybody.
If someone pointed one of those things at me I'd crap my draws as I zigzagged for cover!
Seriously though, many criminals are stopped short by an armed citizen before a reportable incident or a shooting occurs. The gun makes all the difference.
Also, disarming the populace would leave the elderly, women and young ladies particularly vulnerable nowadays. Our cowardly criminal element preys upon the weak and old.

What's the old saw?: My wife carries a gun because a cop is too heavy?
Seriously though, firearms are equalizers. A pack of jackals will have a tougher time when the antelope has claws.

And lets not forget that the first gun control laws in this country were designed by Democrats to disarm freed slaves. Can't have them able to defend themselves, right? You'd think law abiding folks of color would be sensitive to this being that the police can't/won't provide security. The Stockholm syndrome runs deep. Even in the worst city, I'd bet the true criminals are outnumbered by more than 10:1. Yet where are the armed citizen patrols taking back their neighborhoods? The gun laws in these cities actually work to the benefit of the criminals. By design maybe?

Now the dems want to disarm everyone of us. What does that tell you? I guess we're all niggers to them now... The good news is that we still must be a threat.

After so many "school incidents" gun control is picking up on desired traction.

Pimple faced kids with no idea what second amend is all about are protesting and are given

all the time on the tube.

Next step is to get the much larger number of "grown ups" on the same wagon.

Then it will became a law.

States should try creating militias opened to any adult citizen who is qualified to get a concealed carry permit (or whatever local states allow.) There would be no requirement attached to membership, one would not even have to own a gun.

Alternatively, people should start 'private guard agencies' and allow any adult citizen to apply for a job who can legally purchase a gun. Hire everyone interested with the understanding that they may never actually have to work as a guard. Of course 'employees' should be able to do pro bono work guarding their homes, family, friends, and so forth. If HRC can have armed guards at no cost to her, why shouldn't my wife have the same option? 

Both are subject to abuse and probably regulation, sure. But ideas like those may provide a needed shield at some time in the future.

How is "shall not be infringed" consistent with this jerks belief that limiting "assault rifles" is reasonable.  Semi autos aren't assault rifles to begin with. 

And considering that the purpose of the 2nd amendment is to keep people armed to fight a tyrannical government, shouldn't the public actually have automatic rifles just like the government has.  Hell, in the American Revolution the Colonists actually had better weapons than the British army because the British army used muskets while the Colonists had rifles.

The whole gun control argument is flawed.  A right is not negotiable.  What do you think these useful idiot protesting teenagers would say if you told them they can't exercise their 1st amendment rights until they are 21, or that they couldn't use word processing programs to type essays on their political views, but could only use an old manual typewriters and carbon paper if they wanted a duplicate copy.  Rights are unlimited and only misuse of the rights, say like murdering someone with a gun,  is justification for taking away one's rights through imprisonment or execution.

It is a childish argument they make every time they claim it is about the guns available only in the 1700s, besides the second amendment is about arms, not just firearms, all different types of arms.

Last word on control is you know why they want it.

Because there's no genocide if we are armed. It's ridiculously offensive for people to stand around debating weather I have a right to a weapon. You only have rights as long as you are prepared to defend them. There are many reasons to get ready to fight. Luckily most Americans of all races are very much on the same page.

"Gun Control". The words, Gun Control, are Lightning rod words that make for inflammatory bullshit but make no sense at all.

Simplification for the sake of attempting to grab more votes from the simpletons, short bus riders, and idiocracy.

Funny thing about yesterday's school walk outs.... I did not see a single child carrying a sign that said, 'Why did the FBI fail to act on good tips which could have prevented this?'  or   'Why did you fail us by not entering the school and blowing the shooter's brains out Broward County Sheriffs Department?'  or how about  'Why did you not do your jobs Parkland School Board Members?'.

Gun control is popular because in the 20th Century we believe in a deterministic world...gun violence is unacceptable, so we must do something about it. Total confiscation of all guns would reduce the rates of gun violence, just as prohibition of alcohol would reduce DUI, or banning motorcycles or swimming pools would save thousands of lives. The majority of Americans are most comfortable living a highly controlled life, with minimal freedoms as we know them today. The root of this is the cognitive dissonance that stems from our broken form of capitalism, where hard work and intelligence does not result in a decent standard of living or steady employment. The natural place to turn is some form of totalitarianism, and gun control is the logical first step. People summarize it neatly: "We have to do something!"..and doing "something", anything, is almost as good as doing the right thing.
