(Aurora, CO) The horrific shootings by a lone crazed gunman have predictably brought the gun ban politicians out of the woodwork. Salt, trans-fat, soda drink size activist and New York City Mayor Bloomberg demanded “it’s time that the two people who want to be president of the United States stand up and tell us what they are going to do about it… [gun laws]” Senator Frank Lautenberg D-NJ, always an expert on the US Constitution opined, “these types of tragedies will continue to occur unless we do something about our nation’s lax gun laws.”
Years of anti-gun indoctrination in the US has created the right atmosphere for gun bans. Events such as the tragic shootings in Aurora, CO along with media saturation of the story serve to move the US closer than ever towards an all-out ban on firearms. The upcoming UN SMALL ARMS TREATY if ratified by the US Senate will open the door for the UN to regulate firearms in the US. Some American politicians seem more than ready to make privileged government personnel sole possessors of firearms while the serfs are disarmed.
That’s why it’s important to remember that the biggest killer of citizens by far is government. In fact, some estimates claim several hundred million citizens killed by their own governments in the twentieth century alone. Gun bans really work. They raise government law enforcement agents to a special privileged class and lower citizens to a compliant, fearful group of people who do what they’re told. The Second Amendment was written to protect citizens from a tyrannous government. Is it any wonder that this is not taught in the government school system?
Rogue government mouthpieces like New York City’s mayor Bloomberg have long demanded a nationwide gun ban. While law abiding citizens in the decaying city largely cannot even own a gun, citizens are killed there by guns all the time. This myth that somehow a gun ban will make the citizens safer is pure eye and ear candy – a type of political heroin with the same type of payoff. Of course, His Highness Bloomberg also has 24 hour, seven day a week taxpayer funded police protection.
Consider the government sponsored Hutu genocide against the unarmed Tutsi’s in Rwanda. According to Wikipedia, “Most of the victims were killed in their own villages or in towns, often by their neighbors and fellow villagers. The militia typically murdered victims by machetes, although some army units used rifles. The Hutu gangs searched out victims hiding in churches and school buildings, and massacred them. Local officials and government-sponsored radio incited ordinary citizens to kill their neighbors.” Ultimately 800,000 – 1,000,000 largely unarmed Tutsi’s were killed. Defenseless women and children were hacked to death, or raped and then shot.
No gun ban discussion is complete without deciding which parties will be stripped of the right to self-protection. I propose that any gun and personal protection device bans include all federal, state, and local government officials including law enforcement. After all, if a gun ban will make everyone so safe, why does ANYONE need them? If you support gun bans, demand a complete gun ban that includes all government royalty including law enforcement at all levels.
Mayor Bloomberg is a Roman style Caesar, who demands the right to regulate your life in New York City right down to the salt in your diet and the size of your soft drink. And if you refuse? Guess who shows up with guns?
