Bloomberg an opportunistic totalitarian scumbag.
Well, you could count on this like clockwork. Some maniac goes insane and kills a bunch of people. The totalitarians think they can solve this by taking your right to defend yourself away. The piercing screech for stricter gun laws hasn’t yet reached a crescendo.
Of course, this ignores the reality of several issues, not the least of which is that maniacs such as Holmes had at his disposal many other weapons of death. Do they think a magazine with a limited capacity would have prevented any deaths?
Earlier this month I wrote of another shooting. The difference in the outcome is remarkable. The people in the theater were massacred because no one had a weapon to stop that maniac. Oh, there would have been ample opportunity to do just that. …… James Holmes’ Gun Jammed During Aurora Attack, Official Says.
As typical totalitarians are, they refuse to acknowledge their own failures in this issue. It is their advocacy which creates these all-to-often moments of opportunity. Does anyone believe for a second that if the majority of the people in that theater was armed that this would have happened? To be sure, Holmes likely would have found a different avenue for his depravity, but we can all be fairly certain those people in the theater would be alive today if most people carried a weapon.
Inevitably some jack wagon will compare our statistics to other countries. It is baseless and senseless, but it will happen. Why is it baseless and senseless? Because we are a different nation, a different people. We are a different culture, our demographics are different, our geographics are different. Even more, we can easily make the same comparison going the other way, which demonstrates in other countries at different times strict gun control laws leads to more violence and depravity. In this country, the right to self defense is sacrosanct.
Of course, this brings us to another inevitable aspect of the discussion. The Fast and Furious scandal has brought many things to light. Not the least of which is that many guns used by the Mexican gangs are not of American origin. Regardless of one’s abstract position on gun control, given our absolute refusal to secure our border means that no amount of gun control will have any effect in keeping guns out of criminal hands. None. If you want a gun, just pop across the border and buy one. Or, just place a large order and they’ll deliver.
Now, we can only imagine why the totalitarians wish us to be helpless and defenseless, but I don’t really know. It is the most un-American thought. The thought is an insult to our heritage, it is an insult to our nation, it is an insult to the citizenry, and it is an insult to Liberty. The horrible tragedy in Aurora should not be exploited for political gain. It is despicable that one would do so. NYC, would you please leash your pet. Just because you people wish to live your lives under the thumb of would be tin-pot dictators doesn’t mean the rest of us need infected by your vile disregard for Liberty.
Of course, all of this largely avoids the greater discussion of the concepts of life versus living, and Liberty over mere existence. That will be for another time of writing. For now, let’s just point out that it was the effective helplessness of the people which allowed these murders to take place.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims of that horrible act of depravity. I pray that you would arm yourselves and be resolute that such madness never happen to you again.
