Gun violence isn’t about guns. It never has been about guns. It’s about violence and about violent people. To think otherwise is to deny reality.
Fortunately, there are a few people in Washington, D.C. who realize this truth. They’re just not in the White House.
One of the few people in D.C. with their heads screwed on straight about this issue is Glock-carrying Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert. You may remember Boebert for owning a restaurant in Colorado which encourages open carry of firearms and for freaking out anti-gun folks in Congress by petitioning to be able to carry her Glock on Capitol Hill (yes, she’s packing while on Capitol Hill). Oh, and the way she openly mocks anti-gunners in Congress on every Zoom call is beautiful. Clearly, Boebert likes her guns.
She also doesn’t have a problem calling B.S. on the nonsense that anti-gunners keep saying. For example, she took to Twitter to comment on the horrible mass killing in Norway (five people were killed) to make the point that guns aren’t, and have never been, the problem.
If you haven’t heard about that tragedy, here are the details from Terje Solsvik and Victoria Klesty:
A man armed with a bow and arrow killed five people and wounded two others in a series of attacks in the Norwegian town of Kongsberg on Wednesday, local police said.
The suspect was in custody, police added.
“The man used a bow and arrow … for some of the attacks,” police chief Oeyvind Aas told reporters. The police were investigating whether other weapons had also been used, he said.
Yes, the guy killed five people with a bow and arrow. Just imagine how quickly this would have ended if just one of those people had had a firearm on them and the training to use it to protect themselves.
Now, here is Boebert’s Tweet:
Of course, a bunch of anti-gun zealots started yelling that if people weren’t able to get guns in the U.S., then there would be less killings. Except, gun control didn’t decrease the number of killings in London, and it doesn’t happen in other places, either, where guns are banned (just think back to the mass shooting in that same Norway back in 2011).
Why doesn’t banning guns save lives?
Because guns are just a tool (which can be used against would-be mass shooters, too, if anti-gunners had the courage to actually try to defend themselves), and people intent on committing violence will continue to commit violence with whatever tool they can get their hands on. Availability of guns won’t change that, but lack of availability of guns will make it harder for many people, especially those who are less physically strong, to protect themselves and their families.
Only mentally deranged people participate in mass killings or attacks on unarmed people and they will use anything to get the job done!
Not only that but it is also a fact that ALL mass shootings are planned way ahead of time. Also, the shooters are likely to have help gathering their weapons. The lates example that was narrowly was here in FL where two teenagers age 13 and 14 were planning to “Do a Columbine” The teens are too young to buy guns but somebody supplied the weapons to them. Sounds like a vicious conspiracy; so who supplied the weapons? If I remember correctly, the teens in Littleton, CO were also too young to buy guns and someone provided them.
You don’t like guns? Don’t call for help if you are getting rob, attack, or rape! You gave the criminal the right to do it to you! So best you suffered not other who believe in protecting themselves and their children!
All tools are implements that are made to be used by humans. Tools are all inanimate (not endowed with life) and therefore MUST be activated by a HUMAN, even pushing a button, etc,. The PROBLEM is not the tools, IE. guns, IT IS THE PERSON WHO IS TURNING THE TOOL INTO ACTION. A pencil can be used to KILL, yet these are not banned and everyone uses them. Think about the total idiotic idea that guns are responsible for killing people when it is inanimate by its self and can only function when activated by a HUMAN. WHO IS THE BLAME TO FALL UPON ??????
The guns are targeted because the activists have plans to take over our government and they can’t as long as we have our guns. It’s all about Power OVER The People and shoving Communism down our throats.
Yesterday , I watched Chip Roy explain to Nadler about 2nd Amendment ! This was so powerful to me !!! https://youtu.be/S-Hiy4ouOWE
EXCELLENT & WELL SAID ! Take away all the guns , and there is always something else to use to kill !! Knives , base ball bats , broken wine bottles ? Heck , are they going to take away my golf clubs too ??? Like you say , it is never the gun , but the person who pulls the trigger !!!
Old – since afaik no one else has ‘remembered’ it, one of the worst mass killings was done with a semi truck in France – which has very strict gun control laws. IIRC there were 84 fatalities before a gendarme stopped him with (wait for it)
None so blind as those who would not see, or something like that! No, they’ll keep getting victimized and blame us instead of actually meting out REAL punishment to the cretins committing the atrocities!! So stupid!!
Don’t pack the Supreme Court. Instead, pack Congress…..with Boeberts.
My guns stay in their cases, holsters and NEVER move on their own!
My finger is always away from the trigger if I take my gun out of the holster or the case!
My gun is always emptied as soon as I take it out of the holster, to make sure no accident can happen!
Then reloaded, quickly, safely, and pointed towards the safest place I can see!
My gun is always pointed at the target when I am ready to send some lead towards the target.
My finger is always off of the trigger, until I decide to send some lead towards the target!
When I am done sending the lead, I remove the magazine and open the breach, or open the revolver and take out the empties. And put down the weapon, emptied, aimed at the safest place visible!
My bow is NEVER under tension, never with an arrow in position!
My sling shots are never under tension with a projectile in the holder!
My air-rifle is never cocked, and never has a projectile in the breach, unless I am at the range, ready to fire. In which case I use my safety precautions, same as for my weapons.
Which means that NOT ONE OF MY WEAPONS WILL EVER INJURE, WOUND or KILL anything or anybody AT ANY TIME!
Unless someone steals any of my weapons and decide to aim them at people or animals and effectively press on the trigger to activate the specific actions that will send a projectile towards a target.
All this to say: ONLY A EF>>ED UP FINGER WILL KILL WITH A WEAPON! And that finger is held by a EF>>ED UP PERSON with a DEMENTED MIND, or a DEMONIC INTENT!
The ONLY DEMONS I KNOW TODAY ARE THE DEMON RATS of the left!
Amen, I couldn’t of said it any better!!!
Too many people have a simple and basic misunderstanding about “gun control.” “Gun control” is not now, and has never been, about crime or criminals. Quite frankly, the Left couldn’t give a rat’s behind about crime or criminals. Gun control is, and has always been, about disarming the citizenry so they cannot represent a threat to the government once the Left establishes the dictatorship they have been working toward for well more than half a century and, thanks to the stolen elections of November and January, are now in the process of consolidating. The key word in the term “gun control” is not “gun” – it is “control.” A quick study of basic world history will show that one of the first actions taken by every Communist government upon their takeover was to go to all of the local police stations, get the lists of gun owners, and then go door to door and disarm everyone. That is why the Communists – er, I mean the Democrats – want a national gun registry. Is there really anyone at this point in time who still does not understand this?
And by the way, it is way beyond disingenuous that the Left always speaks of “we need gun control” as if there were currently no laws concerning firearms. There are now more than 24,000 gun control laws in effect at the federal, state, and local levels in this nation. Every conceivable aspect of firearm purchase, ownership, and use is covered dozens of times over. Firearms are by far the single most regulated and restricted consumer product in this nation. The only ones who are impacted by all these laws are the law-abiding. Criminals very rarely (check the FBI data on this) even attempt to obtain firearms through legal channels, and are thus unaffected by “gun control.” As I stated above, “gun control” has nothing to do with crime or criminals.
Aha, just as I suspected — we must ban all arrows that don’t have a soft rubber suction cup tip!
Well that MUST mean every Democrat in the U.S. is in the deranged category,
But I already knew that.
Armed is equal
Armed is gender neutral
Armed is anti criminal
Armed is anti slavery
Armed is anti tyranny
Armed is freedom!
Scotty – add ‘properly trained’ to ‘Armed’ and you pretty well nailed it 😉
Sometime I wonder if these ANTI-GUNNERS are anti-personal responsibly because that is what it comes down to …
Punish the legal ( responsible ) gun owners for what the criminal ( & growing ) does …
Robert – EVERYTHING the leftists of any/all stripes have always been about is achieving power and control and they NEED to do away with personal responsibility and accountability to facilitate that goal.
I take advantage of the natural light offered by my living room window for reading. I also watch the world go by at the same time. I’ve yet to see a gun of any description walk by. Either my neighborhood is vary fortunate that it has no guns with an attitude or perhaps it’s NOT the guns, but the person wielding same . Guns share a feature with joey Biden, they’re both brainless .
There are over 1,000 gun manufacturers in the world. Even if we somehow got US gun companies to only sell to police departments and the military, guns will still cross our borders.
Stopping gun violence by making it illegal to possess guns makes about as much sense as stopping COVID-19 deaths by making it illegal to “possess” the virus.
This crop of Demoncrats has got to be the dumbest bunch ever!
Pixie – you do know that LE (Kate Steinle is unavailable for comment) and the military somehow ‘manage’ to lose or have stolen a lot of weapons every year so even if they antis could figure out a way to stop weapons from coming in from other countries there would still be a ‘problem’. And never mind that anyone with a modicum of skills and the appropriate tools can make home made guns.
BTW – has Val Demings ever found her duty weapon that ‘disappeared’?
What people don’t understand, is that the Marxist/Democrat party have been trying to destroy the Second Amendment since Franklin Roosevelt. It’s not about us killing each other because they could care less about that. They use that to hide behind to protect their selves from where the people there’s where the problem lies. The second part of the problem lies within the bar, as they are the ones who create the laws through the judges and the lowlife lawyers who get these people off continually to use them again and make more money off with the people again , further their agenda. If they would apply the laws equally for a murder without using lawyers to try to get them off or twist and pervert the rules this wouldn’t be going on and on and on. So remember it’s not about us killing each other it’s about them fearing us for which the second amendment was written that the government should fear the people and not the people the government. God bless America and may he rest the souls of all those who died for this country the Constitution and the Bill of Rights!
