While talking to a Californian friend of mine we began talking about Californian regulations and laws. Regulations that hurt small businesses, laws that infringe upon personal freedoms, rules that drive people to emigrate to freer states and commonwealths.
I used to believe that gun control advocates were just misguided souls who falsely believe that trading essential liberty for temporary security is a worthy endeavor. That their intentions were pure, that they wanted less gun violence in the world. I used to entertain the idea that knee jerk reactions in calling for gun control to tragedies was just a process in which otherwise good people dealt with trying to assimilate something so terrible.
While I think that some people who naively support gun control measures are actually following that ideology, I have come to believe that the majority of the gun control advocates and activists are really just freedom hating thugs. Hmmm…perhaps that’s not entirely accurate. They hate the freedom of others. Since they don’t wish to be burdened with their own self protection they will strive to deny it to others.
The hypocrisy is foul and the stench that emanates from Mayor Bloomberg (with his 15 man 24hour armed security detail) and any other government official who advocates gun control while safely guarded on the tax payers dime is obscene.
But its not just governement officials that I am speaking of. I have met many hateful people full of vitriol who have told me that since they don’t want the responsibility of having a gun they don’t see the need why anyone should. These are often times the same people who think that small businesses should bear the burden of saving the planet, or funding a school’s art program as they tax them out of existence. That people should be free to do and think as they like…so long as they agree with them. These people never owned a business or better yet never wanted the responsibility of owning a business so why should they know or care how their selfishness cripples others who actually want to do something possitive int he world.
So I find that the gun grabbers of the world are populated with elitists who are rich or priviledged enough to afford their own protection service on their dime or the taxpayers, and those who don’t want the responsibility of protecting themselves so they feel like pulling down the right of anyone else to do what they won’t.
Maybe gun control started out with the best intentions to take guns out of the hands of criminals, but with its complete and utter failure to do that, the only reason that gun control advocates have for continuing the fight is for the complete repeal of the Second Amendment.
Fortunately, we are now seeing the gun control crowd for what they really are and it is time to fight even harder against their insidious plans. A law abiding American without the ability to have a gun is a hell indeed and makes freedom an impossibility.
