Banning guns doesn’t work

This is my response to a commenter that was too long to post in the comments. By the way, assault weapons are already illegal in this country. So the weapons that the Democrats have in their sights are handguns. THAT’S the point though isn’t it?

Wesjp:

I have answered your question. Since you missed it, here it is again: I don’t think that law abiding citizens should have their rights infringed upon because of the actions of the criminally insane.

Since you seem so hell bent on continually engaging me on this, even though we clearly disagree and I HAVE answered your ridiculous, continual, childish, repetitive questions: how do you plan to disarm the criminals?

How can your plan to decimate the 2nd Amendment by frittering it away over time through unconstitutional restrictions help to 1. Disarm criminals and 2. Prevent anyone who intends to harm large groups of people from simply acquiring another means of doing so?

You seem unable to grasp the simple truth that evil is here to stay. Simply sitting home with your blankie in your safe place won’t prevent criminals from seeking ways to harm people.

The answer to Newtown was an armed trained staff member or Law Enforcement official stationed in that building. His mother should have had her firearms locked away. And since Mrs. Lanza knew that Adam was mentally unstable, she should have stored them away from the home and he never should have been taught to use them.

The answer to the Theater Shooting is that there is never a “gun free zone” for cowards to have a free shooting spree in. (Gun Free Zone = target range in the mind of the criminally insane.) The answer is MORE guns.

You fail to realize that there will never be a day in this country where EVERY gun will be confiscated. Criminals don’t abide by our laws now, neither do the insane. Assault weapons (automatic weapons that fire by simply holding down the trigger are already illegal in the US.) Of course the military has them.

Hey, if you know something new, an effective method for confiscating weapons from criminals hell bent on keeping them, please pipe up!

Wespj, work on disarming criminals. I know that you won’t, because that’s actually really difficult work that many men far braver and more intelligent than yourself have worked tirelessly for many years to accomplish, yet they have failed.

The illegal gun trade continues on unabated, even flourishes. It’s easier for a criminal to get a gun, than it is for a law abiding citizen who is afraid for her own life to!

Because the answer is MORE. More well trained, tactically proficient, knowledgeable, courageous citizens, carrying firearms according to and completely within their Constitutionally provided rights.

Gun bans are unconstitutional and they don’t work, that’s why I’m against them.

  1. There are probably more incidents in the US than the three I’ve heard of since the Newtown massacre, but since the MSM won’t report these incidents, I will mention them. Lives, many lives, were saved because someone had a legal right to bear arms.

    Portland, December 10, 2012: A young father who has a concealed carry permit attempts to stop a shopping mall shooter, who realizing someone else has a gun, takes his own life.

    Houston, December 17, 2012: A spurned boy friend enters his ex-girl friend’s place of employment and begins shooting. Customers flee to a nearby movie theater for refuge. A movie goer who has a concealed carry permit shoots the boyfriend as he follows the fleeing customers into the theater.

    Georgia, January 6, 2012: A woman at home with two young children, hides herself and children in a second-floor closet as an intruder breaks in. She has her gun ready, and when he opens the door of the closet, she shoots him five times. He lives.

    This is why we have the right to own guns. (I have the right, but, I personally do not own guns.) In a world where children are disposable, people are encouraged to take from others, personal responsibility is discouraged, and we are constantly told our values are not scientifically supported, we, as a society, are decending into chaos.

    The bedrock of social stability, the family has been under academic, legislative, and main stream media attack for fifty years, and no longer is supported, but rather, damaged by the contiuous creation of questionable studies, reports, and laws purposefully designed to undermine parental rights, responsibilities, values, and authority in raising their children. Most studies seem designed to disprove a specific bedrock value that once supported mental and social stability.

    As a result of these challenges to the family, we are generating greater numbers of mentally broken young people. Social values have not been based on hatred, as many young people have been taught, but on the firm knowledge and experience that the way we chose to live determines the stabilty of our lives, which then supports our ability to support ourselves, to adjust to life’s challenges, and to live in harmony with others.

    The more broken people we generate, the more chaos we will have socially as these people enter their young adulthood.

    The choices and unrealistic expectations for their lives are founded on the distorted social conclusions of failing ideologies, and so are developing people who are very angry, very unhappy, and are expressing their uncertainty, confusion, emotional pain, and inability to initiate and sustain the basic contact of social relationships in ways that further disfigure social bonds and create additional chaos.

    Evil thrives in chaos.

    Broken people do bad things to other people, and not only with guns.
