Imagine a world without guns

2013-04-02 07:20

Imagine a world without guns is what we are told to do. A world that is safe from violence and crime. A world everyone should aspire to and want to live in. The dream come true. If such a world existed as gun control advocates solemnly promise will happen if we get rid of civilian guns, what would we have? Would it be a world of tranquillity, happiness, joy and unimagined safety for all? Crime a thing of the past. Fear and concern removed, replaced by happiness and contentment.

Criminals will be left with stolen, smuggled and thus unregistered guns government cannot remove are never discussed which from all estimates are equal or more than civilian arms. This source of criminal arms is going to magically vanish with the handing in of law abiding civilian guns.. The ANC stockpiles of 50 to 100 tons of illegal smuggled war arms, ammunition and explosives the ANC still has possession of, is according to the ANC absolutely no danger to anyone. We also have tons of conflict guns that have come across the borders from war torn neighbours that will still be out there. Criminals who ship in banned drugs by the ton will now never be able to slip a single gun into the country. Is it possible that gun control and government are being very very economic with the truth in order to deceive citizens and rob them of their rights?

Do we have any examples of what happens when citizens are robbed of their rights and disarmed by governments? Is Nazi Germany an example, China, Soviet Union, Cambodia, Rwanda, Uganda, Guatamala or Turkey and many others? Can governments be trusted with guns by unarmed citizens and relied on to provide the security and safety gun control promises? The answer to that has to be a resounding no, not under any circumstances. That would be an irresponsibly foolish reaction to an obvious lie.
