There is far too much cheap talk when it comes to gun control. The Socialist Left have a plan⏤which I describe further on here, however the vast majority of Americans also need to speak up and speak out on their rights⏤just like Mark Robinson did as he spoke to the city council in Greensboro, South Carolina. Mark captured the sentiments of millions of Americans perfectly:
“Every time there’s a mass shooting, the majority in this country takes another blow. Who’s the majority? The majority is the law-abiding citizens all across America. People who never shot anybody, never committed a serious crime or felony. Yet, the Left wants to put the blame at the feet of the law-abiding citizen, instead of where it belongs, at the feet of the shooter. They want to demonize gun owners and gun sellers, taking our right to bear arms away from us, our Constitutional right. They want to restrict the right of the average citizen to buy a firearm in order to protect themselves. So, what’s going to happen when law-abiding citizens either have their guns confiscated or they turn them in? The answer, only criminals will have guns, as they sure as hell, are not going to turn theirs in.”
There always has, and always will be a black-market for items the government tries to control. And it’s not the good citizen who will be buying their gun on the black-market, it’s the criminals who will be.
Look at what just happened in Philadelphia. Six policemen shot and wounded by criminals. They weren’t shot by law-abiding citizens. Where’s the outrage over these criminals having guns? Where did they get them? Two weeks ago, in Chicago, 72 people were shot in one weekend, 12 fatally. In Chicago alone, 1,692 people have been shot this year. Where is the outrage by the liberal loonie politicians running for office over this? There isn’t any. Why, because most of our larger cities are run by Democrats. Therefore, they don’t want to draw attention to the fact that many of our cities are run down, rat and drug infested wastelands.
These politicians couldn’t care less about these citizens, some who are completely innocent, but are killed in the crossfire. It doesn’t fit their narrative and agenda, which is to disarm people like you and me!
Our forefathers instituted the Second Amendment for the sole purpose that we don’t follow in the steps of Venezuela. Our Second Amendment reads, “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Venezuela’s president, Hugo Chavez, declared war against an unarmed population. In 2012, he directed the Venezuelan National Assembly to enact the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law”, with the explicit aim to “disarm all citizens.” This law banned the legal commercial sale of guns and munitions to all – except government entities.
“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight”, proclaimed now exiled English teacher, Javier Venagas. Today, Venezuela is one of the most impoverished countries in the world, where people are starving, sick, and don’t even have basic needs such as toilet paper. Chavez died in 2013, but his dictatorship torch was passed to current president, Nicolas Maduro.
Stripping citizens of their way to defend themselves, is one of the key features of Socialism. It also deprives individual choice and crushes ambition in pursuit of a uniform, unfulfilling and arbitrary definition of “equality.” And it does all this in the name of “the greater good.” Sound familiar? That’s all we’ve heard about for the past several years, “equality and tolerance.”
These mass shootings have nothing to do with you or I owning guns, yet it’s yours and my rights being threatened. Put the blame where it belongs. Hollywood and their ever-increasing violent films. Sickeningly violent video games which have desensitized our youth to the value of life. The Left has a quest to take and keep God out of society as much as possible, causing the loss of Christian values, such as “thou shall not kill.” All of this, along with a severe mental health issue no longer being addressed by our government, all because of the “PC” culture, brought on by liberals.
This is all by design, not coincidence.
It’s time the majority get involved, and stop these whacko socialists running for our presidency, along with Democrat Congressmen and women. Vote them out of office and help save our Republic. Send ‘Crazy Bernie” a message and let him know you don’t like his flavor of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.
