Pick the Ban of Your Choice
You have probably feel you have read enough blogs and listened to enough opines regarding banning ‘Assault Rifles’ in lieu of the latest tragedy. But, hey, what the heck, here is another one. I am using the poor-man’s version of PhotoShop: ‘Paint, Copy and Paste.’
Question: What do all these things have in common?
They have all been used by some deranged lunatic to murder one or more human beings at one time.
What are we to do? Ban each of these?
Seems pretty silly, doesn’t it?
If you can stand to read another article, I highly suggest, “Anti-Gun Propaganda and Controlling Violent Crime,” written by by Professor Stasio (Copyright © 1996 B. A. “Collie” Collier).
The introduction has this interesting fact:
The USA’s Gun Control Act of 1968 is taken, nearly word-for-word, from the Nazi’s Gun Control Law of 1938.
Gun prohibition violates basic premises that are central to our Constitution; it makes villains of the well-meaning and victims of us all. Also, lamentably, should it occur, there is a real possibility that gun control will contribute to the crime problem we face, rather than alleviating it. Gun control will neither prevent violent crime, nor afford us safety.
To quote Benjamin Franklin, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Gun control, as stated by anti-gun advocates, should be abolished in the United States.
