The Illusion of Gun Control

02 December 2012, 18:19
1 Gun control serves a useful purpose. Purpose always falsely claimed as crime fighting or increased safety.
2 Gun control has no proven validity as an anti-crime or increased safety measure.
3 Some gun control is necessary. No reason ever given.
4 We can/must accept some gun controls but not others. Never defied.
5 We must control the guns. Governments only objective. A fear of citizens. A lack of trust.

Ever since man constructed weapons and used these for the aggressive gain of power and not hunting, defence or survival, those in power have sort to limit citizens from possessing arms, out of fear and the desire of control. People who cannot object or reject control are the desire of anyone who seeks power over them.

Research will show the obvious truth, no gun control law has ever been proven to have reduced crime, the supply of arms to criminals or increased public safety. Gun control is unacceptable for a number of reasons.

1 Your rights to safety and self defence are not divisible. Once divided or made conditional they are of no value to anyone.
2 Once you accept gun control all you can now do is argue over how much.
3 Acceptance is defeat, nobody fights what they accept.
4 Silence is acceptance.

For gun control to succeed all it takes is a belief some gun control is acceptable. From that point on it is just a matter of time and
assimilation of each step to the final result.

Anyone who doubts the validity and truth simply has to show a sustained decrease of gun control anywhere in the word obtained by accepting some gun control and not others.  Never ever has Acceptance, Appeasement, Collaboration and Surrender gained a single useful thing.

Acceptance of gun control is a fatal mistake.  It cannot be appeased without loss of the most valuable right we have, the right to freedom, safety and self-defence.
