It's bad enough that we have people who know nothing about firearms, how they work, or what they are used for but are still lecturing us about them. Their "logic" (or total lack thereof) when discussing what kinds of firearms should be in the hands of regular citizens just escapes me. But what's really terrible are the purposeful lies that are told about these inanimate objects, as well as the lies that are continuously told by the left and their mouthpiece, the media.
"Guns are killing machines. They are meant to kill as many people as quickly as possible. They are weapons of war!"
Really? Well, I guess if we are talking about citizens having firearms for the purposes expressed by the founders, then my response to that is:
"Well... Yeah! That's kind of the point, right?! That we protect ourselves with an implement that is as proficient at doing so as the implements that our opponents would use against us."
Actually - guns were built for one purpose, and one purpose ONLY: To use mechanics to ignite the powder charge in an ammunition cartridge that fires a bullet. Where that bullet goes is a matter of the heart and intent of the operator.
But the liberal/progressives and their gun grabbing mentality don't see it that way. The liberal/progressive civilians are afraid of guns and want them banned because they are scary, hurt their feelings, and any number of other naive reasons. The liberal/progressive politicians want to ban guns, they say, to protect the frightened sheep, and give them a sense that their politicians are "doing something."
But really and truly, they want to ban guns because they are afraid of guns simply because guns give the intelligent and freedom loving citizen a means by which to protect themselves, from said politicians.
So the progression of gun bans will follow:
"AR-15s are weapons of war. They can shoot 5,000 bullets per second from 30 caliber clips. They are the same weapons used by police and soldiers. They are meant to kill large numbers of people quickly. They should not be on our streets. They must be banned."
"All semi-automatic weapons only exist to kill as many people as possible as quickly as possible. They are weapons of war. They should not be on our streets. They must be banned."
"Revolvers are the same kinds of guns used by some police departments. Therefore, they are only meant for police use. They should not be on our streets. They must be banned."
"Bolt action rifles are the same ones used by military and police snipers. They only exist for killing people from 5 miles away. They are weapons of war. They should not be on our streets. They must be banned."
"Shotguns are the same weapons used by riot police. Therefore, they are only meant for police use. They should not be on our streets. They must be banned."
Do you see where this is going? Ban one, then the next kind becomes the evil "weapon of war" on the street. Then ban the next, and the next, until all guns are banned. What will you protect yourselves with then? Rocks? Then they'll ban those.
Dear BB Brain Politicians: Our Second Amendment was written EXACTLY because citizens need the same types of weapons used by the police and military to protect ourselves from YOU. So back off!
Dear Absentee Citizens: Get off your asses and get active and support candidates who support liberty. If you don't, don't gripe to me about your guns being taken away. And don't gripe to me when your freedom disappears. I won't be there to help you.
