If you’re a true American then you already do not agree with banning guns …
You realize that the right to self defense is a fundamental natural right that all humans share, that firearms make it easier to defend oneself in today’s modern world, and that — as an American — the Constitution guarantees this fundamental right.
You also know that the founders of America had just got done with a bloody war where they used guns to overthrow a tyrannical regime and they specifically included the right to keep AND bear arms for that purpose — if the government they were designing ever grew into a tyrannical monster again — the people had the right to take it down.
But even more important is the fact that it’s impossible to ban guns.
Why It’s IMPOSSIBLE To Actually Ban Guns
Let’s pretend for a moment that the Federal and every state government completely bans guns.
Oh, let’s also pretend that guns were banned in every country in the world because as we saw with the Paris terrorist attacks in 2016, just because you ban guns in France, doesn’t mean Terrorists wont drive into your country with a trunk full of AK-47’s.
And in this imaginary world all the guns that already exist when “poof!” and disappeared too.
No more guns for anyone.
Would that stop criminals from using guns?
Not likely. Why?
Because it’s so easy to BUILD guns.
Watch This “Kid” Make a Gun Out Of Hardware Store Parts
In this video, I have no idea how old this “kid” is (is that the sign of being officially middle age or over? you start calling everyone a kid?) but he quickly designs and makes a simple pistol out of hardware store parts:
And it’s not rocket science …
The technology for making guns has been around for over 100’s of years.
If guns were outlawed completely and banned everywhere then criminals would quickly start building their own (only after the world supply of currently available firearms ran out … in about 100 years … by which time I’d imagine you could 3d or otherwise “print” a complete gun from your computer because technology would be so improved by then).
Anyways, as you can see there is no way to control or keep criminals from getting or manufacturing their own guns.
The only logical solution?
Don’t be the only guy without a gun.
Like The Guardian reports “The frontman of the Eagles of Death Metal, the band that was performing at the Bataclan theatre in Paris when 90 people were murdered by terrorists last year, has remembered his terror at encountering a gunman backstage – and argued for universal access to guns …
… Vocalist-guitarist Jesse Hughes, who is a long-time advocate for access to gun ownership, told the French television station iTélé in a 19-minute, at times tearful interview on Monday that restrictions on guns in France had helped to enable the terrorists.
Asked if his views on gun control had changed after the terror attacks, the member of America’s National Rifle Association said gun control “doesn’t have anything to do with it”.
“Did your French gun control stop a single fucking person from dying at the Bataclan? And if anyone can answer yes, I’d like to hear it, because I don’t think so. I think the only thing that stopped it was some of the bravest men that I’ve ever seen in my life charging head-first into the face of death with their firearms.
“I know people will disagree with me, but it just seems like God made men and women, and that night guns made them equal,” he said. “And I hate it that it’s that way. I think the only way that my mind has been changed is that maybe that until nobody has guns everybody has to have them.
“Because I’ve never seen anyone that’s ever had one dead, and I want everyone to have access to them, and I saw people die that maybe could have lived, I don’t know.”
Just a simple thought experiment today …
What are your thoughts? Do you think if all the guns in the world suddenly vanished that criminals would just start making them?
People who want gun control do NOT have any common sense. It is a fact that if guns are removed from good people only our GESTAPO and CRIMINALS will be armed. Unfortunately the good people will at that time will be criminals as well. Why they will have guns too. Now illegal guns.
It’s good to know that Trump packs heat and is already talking about the idea of CC reciprocity among all the states.
He should be talking about Constitutional Carry in EVERY state and repealing of all Federal Gun Control Laws starting with the ones intentionally permanently punishing a criminal even after she is legally rehabilitated and integrated back into society as a law abiding citizen again which does nothing but sets the stage for making other ‘agenda based’ laws to make most of the potential population ‘resistance’ also potential criminals then forever banned from having guns when the Totalitarian agenda goes full auto.
Thus effectively disarming us without actually banning all guns. This was, and is, the greatest GunControl fraud ever perpetrated on We, The People.
the people trying to outlaw guns for us common folk have a team of armed security surrounding them. They only want gun control for us mere citizen — politicians and celebrities will be exempted.
I totally agree with you Larry.
You said what I have been thinking about Liberals and the left for a long time. Liberals go completely around COMMON SENSE in their thinking process. Their agenda ignores COMMON SENSE. so even though they may be very intelligent, the work very hard at being STUPID.
I agree that no govt. should inact any legislation to prevent or limit access to any weapon or components to law abiding citizens.
I also agree that criminals would build thier own weapons if there was no other way to obtain them. However, if ammunition or the components were not available, all components primers, casings etc, including all propellants, even black powder, you would only be able to use your gun for a club.
This is all just academic it will never happen. The bad guys already have their weapons and are not going to just hand them over because of some law. Disarming or preventing law abiding citizens of access to equal means for protection would be mass murder.
Even gunpowder and primers can be made. I have a book fro the early 1900’s that has three formulas for smokeless gunpowder and these are available at the grocery store and the
hardware store. There was no formula for black powder, they assumed that everyone could make it.
A much improved version of the “zip” guns that I saw as a kid down in New Orleans and other parts of the country in the 50’s and 60’s. I also saw various versions when I was in the military stationed overseas in German and
the UK. Illegal but still easily built. One of the gentlemen I knew in England said they built them in Occupied
German when operating behind the lines. They fabricated a “pistol” that used 9mm rounds they could acquire
from the German military quite easily. He showed me a couple examples that were single shot and very
short range, at best maybe 5 feet and difficult to reload. Primarily used for secret operations where you hoped
you did not need a weapon.
If this government try’s to take away our rights then we need to take our government back along with all military personnel and and equipment and run them out . But that will never happen because if we the people start a militia the government destroy’s them and not enough people would join the militia to fight them off.
How would you get criminals to comply strikes me as a most cogent question. Answers from the gun banners please. By the way, hysterical rants are not legitimate answers.
Why is it that everything liberals do turns to crap. Obama care is failing. Gun safe zones are where most mass murders occur. Every state ran by democrats is in the red (California especially). Look at France. Chicago is the murder capitol of the world and why because guns are outlawed there. It’s too bad that outlaws aren’t outlawed. Then there’s illegal immigrants. What could possibly go wrong with letting in a bunch of poor unskilled people from a backwards country? The list can go on and on but who has the time.
Being an old timer that has owned guns since 1946, I see no way to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Whether they build them, buy, or steal them from cops, army…. whatever. Banning guns is a dumb-a$$ed Demorats idea, & we can all see how their cities turn out…
“Gun Control” isn’t about guns…..it’s about control.
Seems to me that the thing everyone forgets, or at least, just glosses over, is the most fundamental fact that humans (not to mention other predacious animals) are NOT born with equal strength and ability. Hence, it should be very obvious, that if all guns suddenly went away, the biggest, meanest guys around would get to have their way and bully everyone else into compliance. That’s definitely not something I would consider a Utopian scenario. Throughout human history, it has always been the case, that the guys with the weapons get to make the rules for everyone else. The widespread presence of guns, or even the POSSIBLE presence of guns, in the mix, changes all that instantly. The biggest, meanest guys around are no more able to bully armed folks than are 90 year old grandmothers (assuming they are also armed). This means that an armed society (or even a potentially armed one – since you never know WHO will be carrying) remains a more polite one. I’m not just talking about whether or not folks use crude language or act disrespectfully here. I’m talking about the fact that, in an armed society, no one can expect to bully others into doing what they want by force; so they will have to resort to the more civilized approach of trying to convince them to go along with their desires. This means that there will be a more civil discourse, folks will have to learn to argue their points better or more convincingly, etc., rather than trying to force others to go along with them. At present, we Americans are inadequately armed, and consequently, we can be, and ARE, bullied into doing whatever the better armed government agents want. At the time of our country’s founding, this didn’t happen. It was not possible, because the citizens wouldn’t tolerate allowing the government to be better armed than the populace. This is why the argument for banning “military style assault weapons” is so fundamentally wrong.
Think about it: who actually manages to bully you successfully today? Your boss (who can coerce your compliance by holding the power of your job/income over you), your government (who can coerce your compliance by holding the power of greater force than you are allowed to have), who else? And if you don’t think the government routinely uses force to coerce compliance, just look at incidents like the Bundy Ranch Standoff, or even closer to home, look at how you feel on April 15th when you have to do your income tax. Did you know it is technically a “voluntary tax?” The last 3 Directors of the IRS have publicly admitted that, and stated that there is no law that requires you to pay it, yet hundreds are in jail for not doing so, and you and I go along with it because we can’t afford the trials, or aren’t willing to tolerate the false imprisonment that will likely result from objecting too strongly. If the government thought for a minute that the average citizen would be likely to meet their bullying force the same way as the activists at the Bundy Ranch did, they’d be a lot less likely to try bullying anyone in the first place. And at the bottom of it all, that’s why “Nancy” is correct: “Gun Control” isn’t about guns…..it’s about control.
As a retired detective with 31years experience, I can honestly say gun control is a criminal’s greatest dreams. I have interviewed hundreds of convicts both in and out of custody (all felons). As firearms have always been very important to me, I always slipped in the question “What do you think of gun control?” To a tee, they all answered, go for it. Their biggest fear was coming up against an armed citizen, not an armed law enforcement officer. Law enforcement officers are, unfortunately, few and far between. Armed citizens are everywhere. You control the guns, you control the people. Just look at the states and cities, the ones with the most severe gun control, the ones with the most violent crime. I grew up in So. Cal. Prior to the libs taking over, it was a low crime wonderful area to live. Not so much now. High crime, victims everywhere. Within a month of retirement, we moved to a very pro gun state. You can’t believe the difference! Very low crime. Talking with an unarmed citizen was a huge minority. Folks just think alike, but in a good way.
Marty, you’re absolutely right. I had that same experience with criminals. I once asked a perp, ‘ by the way, don’t you know that guns are illegal here (Chicago)? He said, ‘No, I didn’t know that, but so what?’
People don’t want to ‘get’ it,and intentionally ignore the fact for the purposes of sustaining their little comfy zones that we live in a multi-dimensional society that barely co-exists within flimsy parameters of law and order. If, or rather when it breaks down, every smart mouth libtard gun hater will be begging and groveling and coughing up all their gold for any gun they could get their dirty little hands on.
Love to know why all states can’t be like whichever one you’ve moved to! Idaho just institutes their new law that allows carry without a CWP…wow! Way to go Idaho! Not just limited to the Idahoans if you’re visiting. We need their Congressional lawmakers in Washington, DC!
I still remember the juvenile delinquency problem during the 1950’s. Quite a few teenagers converted toy guns into and otherwise made “zip guns” using small pipes obtained at hardware stores and using massive amounts of rubber bands to power the hammer hitting the rear of the cartridge to fire the bullet. And, if there were no pipes or cartridges available, crossbows could also be made. Remember switchblade knives? They are now federally banned, has that stopped stabbings on the street. Please refrain from claiming “the saving of one at least one life,” while there is still so much violence going on, regardless.
Thats neat had no idea kids were doing that in the 50’s!
Our forefathers would absolutely be sick to see what their beloved country has become, that are country is full of traitors and have turned against Israel, the constitution, and against God, liberals have inthroned their evil king that is allowing our country to be colonized and infiltrated by the infidels. Our rights were bought for us by blood on a battlefield, and now our children give them up being taught to follow the spirit of Anti Christ, and are not being taught U.S. history, how pitful, how could communism and socialism sneak in here and how could America even consider voting for a socialist?
There are over 300 MILLION
If all the guns in the world were suddenly vaporized, it would not take anyone long to realize that we were suddenly back to the brutal time of ancient Rome and Mongol hordes – brutality waged upon the weak by the strong. Entire populations of reasonable, rational citizens would search for a tool that would enable civilized people to stop the brutality rampaging upon them. Something that would enable good family, & community minded peoples to defeat the hordes of violent, rampaging looters . . .
It, under the relentless pressure of deceptive propaganda, pushed for the historically same ulterior motive of domination of a people, is easy to forget, how guns enabled good peoples to secure their safety against unspeakable acts perpetrated by superior numbers of evil men!
This is NOT a capability to surrender at any cost, for any reason, to anyone, ever!
Sure…. Let’s Ban ALL Firearms. Then only the Outlaws will have them. Do YOU believe that They will give up theirs? I think Not! I’ll hang on to My old army 45, and the 8 clips of ammo I still own. Chuck.
You can’t fix stupid! Ever noticed how legislation begins in California and moves east? Well, it needs to stop! I don’t want to have my life, and the lives of my family, in someone else’s hands! Never give up you’re guns! It’s the last step in a dictatorship!
Obama does not believe anyone should be able to own guns, said so himself, well I got news for him every CITIZEN in the United States has the right to own guns and there’s nothing he can do or say to make We The People give them up. Sure he can come up some back room clandestine deals with others of his ilk , but he is facing an uphill battle. The Constitution is not an outdated document like he thinks! He claims he’s a Constitutional scholar, the only reason he studied it so much is to try to find ways around it! Can’t seem to find any one who remembers him teaching any classes. Are you ready for Martial Law? That’s the next card up his sleeve. What kind of deals is he making in Hiroshima now? Giving up all our Nuclear weapons? He has already decimated our Army and Navy what’s next?
The one and only purpose in outlawing guns is to CONTROL us, Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Ordinary Citizens and offspring! Taking away our guns has always been the goal for the sole purpose of giving the one world elitists the ability to take over and rule unopposed. At least that’s the game plan! They think we’re to stupid to know this and just go along with whatever they want. So far it has been successful keeping them at bay. As long as we have a Constitution we’ll have guns. But Obama has been methodically chipping away at and the establishment DNC and GOP are happily helping him get away with its destruction. The only thing that has kept it in place this long are good people taking him to court and winning. But Barrack Hussein Obama has put a huge hole in that by having Justice Antonin Scalia murdered. Don’t be surprised if he crowns himself and becomes king in the next couple of months using his Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter and Black Panther goons to take to the streets with massive riots so he can declare martial law. He wasn’t groomed to be in the White House for only 8 years!!! Wake up America!#
