Gun Control’s Failure Shows What Gun Control Is Really About


It’s time that gun rights advocates in America and around the world (and I’m assuming that includes you, since you’re reading this) started to demand honesty on the part of anti-2A zealots.

Of course, that honesty is something that they will fight kicking and screaming against because they desperately want to believe that they are helping to “protect the children” and to keep people safe. Never mind that that idea on their part is pure cow manure.

See, it’s time that gun rights advocates take the propaganda fight to anti-2A nutcases and start forcing them to explain the increased violence that their policies always create.


What am I talking about? Ranjit Singh gives us some of those details:

Under that [“means-ends scrutiny standard”], Washington D.C.’s total ban on handguns survived because the government’s interest in reducing “gun violence” was important and a blanket ban on handguns was “substantially related” to that goal. If the means were effective, Washington DC would have been one of the safest cities in America, but that was not the case. What the ban did accomplish was destroy the constitutional rights of lawful people.

The same can be said of numerous other gun laws that were rubber-stamped using means-ends scrutiny. Colorado’s “high capacity” magazine ban and other gun control laws had the opposite result of the government’s goal; crime increased since 2013 in Colorado, with Denver violent crime reaching its second highest in May 2023. Illinois’ Firearms Owners Identification Card (FOID) passed judicial muster under means-ends scrutiny, but Chicago’s violence was and still remains so bad that the city is called “Chiraq,” a portmanteau of Chicago and Iraq. New York’s “assault weapon” ban, passed with less debate than a law making yogurt the official state snack, was also approved under means-ends scrutiny, but that didn’t result in lower crime or prevent the Buffalo massacre.

If the ends aren’t met, why are the means still kept alive?

(emphasis in the original)

Now, anti-2A politicians have access to the gun data in context, so, they can’t pretend to be ignorant about the true relationship between legal gun ownership and gun violence which shows that increased legal gun ownership decreases gun violence. The possible exception to that is AOC who is ignorant of all kinds of things (insert your joke about AOC here).

So, if anti-2A politicians know the truth and continue to push policies that see more people injured and killed, why do they keep pushing for gun control? The answer is that they want people who care about the Constitution and about freedom to be unarmed and unable to resist the type of tyrannical government that political leftists are pushing for. And we see how that caused, by some estimates, 100 million people killed by those types of governments in the last century.

As advocates for gun rights, we need to take the offensive and start demanding that gun control advocates justify with honest, in context statistics how they can pretend to be trying to save lives while pushing for policies that cause more death.

When we stop playing nice with people by being polite and courteous to those who aren’t playing nice or being honest (I’m looking at you, David Hogg) and who try to shout out the truth that we speak, then, we have a better chance of reaching both the genuinely ignorant and the undecided on the gun rights issue.

We cannot allow anti-2A nutcases and “Mao wannabes” in government to continue to control that narrative through lies and arrogance. Our rights and the rights that our children are able to exercise may be dependent on it.



  1. All these Dudley Do Rights dems need to is watch a couple of sci-fi movies ( Soylent Green and Planet of the Apes) to see what their moronic plans are taking us.

  2. These anti-2A nutcases are going after the wrong people, gun crimes are not carried out by law abiding people …
    The people they should be going after already have laws against them and what they are doing …

  3. Gun control is a good thing when focused on the illegal use of them by persons not legally allowed to possess them and when they are used used in the commitiom of crimes. It is NOT a good thing when guns are denied to law abiding citizens for use in protecting themselves from criminals who use them illegally to commit crimes.
    There are enough laws on the books to keep criminals who use guns to commit crimes locked up and off of the streets. The problem is leftists continually push to defund the police and allow these miscreants to remain on the street through ignorant judges that grant no cash bail and release these crooks to again prey on society.
    Left leaning legislators and judges place the onerous of gun control on the backs of law abiding gun owners instead of jailing those who illegally possess guns for the sole purpose of committing crimes. We, as law abiding gun owners, must push back on these anti-constitutional decisions by our elected and unelected idealists buearucrats at the voting booth and let them know we will no longer allow them to castigate lawful gun ownership at the expense of criminals who tout the law.
    Putting conservative constitutionalists back in charge of our government and courts is the only answer to the problem of gun control. We must control the use of guns by criminals who aim to do wrong and encourage legal ownership and training by the law abiding citizenry for protection against those who would do wrong. Our only protection against criminals who would use a gun against us is a good guy with a gun!

  4. AOC stands for “Adult Out Of Control”, she doesn’t have a clue about much of anything. All these “Left Outs” can do is cheat, steal, lie, threaten, manipulate, falsify, cover up, send taxpayers money to our enemies, run up our National Debt, pay people to keep quite, build up trumped up charges against anyone that comes against them…………… In regard to A2, confiscate and outlaw. The Constitution of the United States clear states “Shall Not Be Infringed Upon”. Yet they still do. So who are the real criminals? “The Left Outs”!!!!!

  5. It’s an old saying but very true. “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people”, which was demonstrated by a politician once. He took a pistol and put it on the table. Then stood back and waited for about 20 or 30 minutes. He then asked the surrounding crowd if anyone had been shot. Everyone said “No” so he picked up the pistol and put it away. He then said, ” guns are inanimate objects, they can not harm you, it’s what people do that will harm you.” So, all the gun control in the world will not stop people from ki.ling each other. Mental Health help would be a big step in the right direction though. It’s time we started looking at mental health as a treatable disease and not something that you need to be afraid of or ashamed of.
