Guns are evil! They should be banned!

You stupid Americans and your silly "right to bear arms". It's time to become good obedient citizens of the world and cast aside that old, dusty document called the Constitution. If we could only be more like France or England then we would really be much better people!

Liberals hate guns. And they hate the 2nd Amendment. They just don't have the guts to come out and say it in public. Most liberals, if given the chance, would restrict firearms ownership 100% in the United States. Seriously, why should anyone own a gun? The Army will defend our country if we are invaded, the police will protect me if my house gets broken in to, and really, why do people need to hunt those poor innocent deer anymore? We get all our food from the grocery store!

Liberals hate this country because we are different. We have always been different. And they don't like that we are different. If only we could be like more "modern", "civilized" people in Europe. They always point to Europe. Predictably Sweden and Norway, where the largest mass shooting by a single person in history took place just a few short years ago, amid crippling gun control laws mind you.

"Why should anyone own a gun?" they all ask. As if it isn't explicitly explained in the 2nd Amendment. Again, liberals are unable to grasp the entire concept of the 2nd Amendment and why it was written. The Founders sought to build a nation and a society that was different from the oppressive monarchies of centuries before. They proposed a radical idea...that the people, private citizens, retain "the right to bear arms", not to hunt, not for home defense, but as an effective buffer to possible tyranny.

For some, the possibility of a government turning tyrannical is mind boggling, but history is chock full of examples, many of which can be found by just flipping one page backward to the 20th century. And in most instances, before the government went full Hitler on its citizens, it disarmed them first!

Ottoman Turkey implemented gun control and later exterminated at least a million defenseless Armenians. The Soviets implemented gun control following the red revolution and killed upwards of 20 million citizens over the next 40 years. Hitler and his Nazi Party implemented gun control in Germany and killed at least 8 million Jews and political prisoners. Communist China implemented gun control and murdered nearly 20 million innocent civilians. Pol Pot implemented gun control in Cambodia and murdered over a million people. Another million defenseless citizens were snuffed out in Rwanda, Uganda, and Guatemala in the 1900s after gun control was passed.

"But! But! Look at Britain and Australia! They have gun control and no one is dying there!"

No one is saying that if gun control is passed it automatically turns the government into a killing machine. But the possibility will always be there, and that is exactly what the Founding Fathers DID NOT want to happen in the United States of America. We can squabble about crime statistics another time.

I am glad we are different. And I'd rather live in a society where citizens are empowered and in control than one where the government is empowered and in control. That principle of WE THE PEOPLE is uniquely American.

Why Mass Shootings Happen: A Culture in Decline

There is no one single reason why we see an uptick in the frequency and severity of mass shootings these days, but if I had to lay the blame somewhere, it would be on our withering, dying culture.

A Culture Problem, Not a Gun Problem

"The most effectual way to judge a culture or society is by its art."

While the left is soiling themselves over a lack of gun control following the massacre at Sandy Hook, they conveniently overlook the 500+ gun murders last year in Chicago, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the entire nation. It's not a matter of guns or gun control, but the culture at large.

While Hollywood feigns anguish over the shootings, they churn out violent, blood dripping carnage and market it straight to teenagers, as if to fulfill some sort of bloodlust. Lately, they mix the blood with sex, and market it to young girls through the new vampire-erotica genre in wildly popular entertainment such as Twilight. Movies, video games, and books directed at youth are rife with absolute carnage and sexual deviance.

The mass media is at fault. For a deeper perspective on this, I highly recommend this Frontline documentary from 2001 called "The Merchants of Cool". Mass media's influence on the younger generation is criminal and perverted. They teach boys how to be vulgar, disrespectful, and lazy and they teach girls the art of promiscuity.

American youth are bombarded by the mass media on a daily basis. Where morals were once commonplace, deviance has replaced those outdated, pesky limitations on happiness as the new norm. Our societal mores were dismantled by liberalism in the 1960s. And the numbers don't lie...

- Today, more than 40% of children in the United States are born out of wedlock
- Massive increases in prescription drug addiction; 1 in 4 American women on mental health drugs
- Highest rate of divorce in the world; 50% of American marriages end in divorce
- Suicide recently surpasses car crash fatalities; 15% increase in suicide over last decade
- 86% of American teens see classmates taking drugs or drinking during school day
- United States 17th in international education ranking
- 43% of American children live in a fatherless home
- 90% of children ages 8-16 have viewed pornography online

The family structure has been ravaged in this country by cultural Marxists. After the school shooting in Ohio last year, I wrote this post highlighting the common denominator of broken families among school shooters. Lo and behold, Adam Lanza was no exception.

Our culture at large is becoming more deviant, and the digital age we now live in has only served to soak and dumb down our society at a much faster rate. We live in a culture that glorifies carnage and violence, encourages sexual deviance, pushes more legal and illegal drug use, and ridicules anyone who doesn't conform. Obama and the liberals can ban guns all they want. They can enact the most crippling gun control measures imaginable. But it won't stop a thing.

What the Founding Fathers said about the 2nd Amendment vs. What the liberals say about the 2nd Amendment

"I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
George Mason

Liberal Version: "I ask, Sir, what is the militia? I'm not sure but that was a long time ago and one of those really old words beyond our understanding. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to keep them from hunting."

"A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves …"
Richard Henry Lee

Liberal Version: "A militia, when properly formed...oh what the hell! We don't need a militia anymore! That's what the Army is for!"

"And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press, or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; …"
Samuel Adams

Liberal Version: "And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press, unless they are conservative, or the rights of Conscience (whatever that is); or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from hunting tasty deer…"

"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them."
Richard Henry Lee

Liberal Version: "To preserve safety, it is essential that the whole body of the people no longer possess guns and be taught alike, especially when young, how evil they are."

"Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do not."
Thomas Jefferson

Liberal Version: "I don't get it?"

"No free man will ever be debarred the use of arms."
Thomas Jefferson

Liberal Version: "No deer hunter will ever be debarred the use of arms. And really, you don't need more than 7 bullets!"

"The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that … it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; … "
Thomas Jefferson

Liberal Version: "The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the government; that … it is their right and duty to be at all times armed, and tell the people when not to be armed; … "

I don't like citing Wikipedia, but this page has more historical quotes from various Founding Fathers on what the 2nd Amendment meant to them. Nowhere is hunting game mentioned. Fancy that!

In fact, look at the context and usage of "arms" and "armed" in the documented words of our Founding Fathers and you find it crystal clear. To be "armed" as the Founders said, had nothing to do with hunting. It didn't even have anything to do with personal home defense. It meant arming WE THE PEOPLE on a national scale against the possibility of tyranny.

Best quote for last from Mr. Thomas Paine:

"The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand arms, like laws, discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside … Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them."

Why should anyone own an assault rifle?

This gun debate is nauseating. And it's brought me out of my post-election blogging hiatus, because I can't take it anymore.

The gun debate has become so convoluted by the left it is hard to even keep your head on straight sifting through all the lib baby slobber. 

What did Thomas Jefferson say about the 2nd Amendment? He said, "No FREE MAN shall ever be debarred the use of arms." He didn't say "No hunter shall ever be debarred the use of arms." So before we can even begin to have a debate on assault rifles or the 2nd Amendment, first we need to realize what exactly the 2nd Amendment is for. NOWHERE in the Constitution or the writings of the Founding Fathers is hunting mentioned. The governor of New York, that liberal dunghole on the fast track to fascism, would do well to actually read the Bill of Rights. The 2nd Amendment was written to empower the people against the possibility of tyrannical government, such as that of the British Empire in the American colonies during the Revolution. And you can bet the Founders also knew that the possibility of tyranny would be there for years to come, even far off in the future. And the government of the United States isn't exempt. When politicians and lib loonies say things like, "No one needs 20 bullets to hunt a deer!" or "I still believe in the right to bear arms for sportsmen everywhere!" what they are really saying is, "I am a complete dumbass who doesn't understand why the 2nd Amendment was written and I hope one day we can ban all guns from America forever like our socialist brothers and sisters in Europe". That turned out well in the 20th century. It is also funny hearing liberals who have no knowledge of firearms use the word "bullets". 

No, the Founders could have never imagined the powerful weaponry we have today. Tell me how does this invalidate the 2nd Amendment? I'm sure the Founders couldn't have ever envisioned the internet, yet we still have free speech online. (or supposed to anyway) By liberal la la land logic, Freedom of Speech is only relative to the 18th century. That means you only have free speech by writing with a feather pen and ink on parchment, or maybe dressing up in a period attire (yes you have to wear leggings too) and shouting your opinions at a convention hall. No free speech allowed on Facebook or on a telephone. The Founders could have never imagined those things. Sounds stupid doesn't it? Well so does saying the 2nd Amendment only applied to muskets. 

So the next time a liberal asks you, "Why should anyone have an assault rifle?" go ahead and ask them, "Why should you have free speech when talking on a cell phone?" They probably will be too stupid to understand it, but at least you can have a good laugh. 

I'll try to post regularly like I used to. Feel free to stick around.
