“Why was the Las Vegas shooter allowed to have 48 guns? No one should be allowed to have 48 of anything,” so spoke either a main stream media talking head or a comedian. I often can not tell the difference. He went on to say, “If you have 48 cats you are called a ‘crazy cat woman.’
That was just a small example of the unhinged comments from liberals demanding control over the rest of us based on their prejudices. As is often said, and demonstrated, it is not about guns, it is about control.
Do you own 48 of anything? Should you be controlled and should the government confiscate anything the liberals do not want you to own?
I am not sure exactly sure how many guns I own, I have not counted lately. I may have more than 48 and I definitely have thousands of rounds of ammo for them. Not a single one of them has ever hurt anyone and never will, unless I am threatened. It is not up to comedians, actors, talking heads or politicians, all with armed security, to tell me how many I can own.
Two very liberal politicians actually told the truth, a real surprise. California Senator Diane Feinstein, who wants to ban all guns, admitted no gun control law could have affected the Las Vegas shooting, then called for more gun control laws in response to that shooting. That is the definition of illogical.
California Representative (see a pattern here) Nancy Pelosi, in response to a question about people’s fear that any new law would be a “slippery slope” toward a total gun ban, responded “I hope so.”
What ever happened to “Saturday Night Specials?” Just a few years ago gun banners were claiming that outlawing inexpensive revolvers, so called “Saturday Night Specials,” would solve gun crime. Now their mantra is “semiautomatic” or “bump stock.” They will use anything to try to get their control over those of us who disagree with their agenda. They use any crisis or tragedy to try to control the rest of us.
Arms are the only physical thing citizens are guaranteed a right to own in the constitution. But folks like movie producer Michael Moore want to take the 2nd Amendment out of the constitution. It inhibits their ability to control the rest of us.
If laws kept people from getting things, we would have no cocaine, meth or heroin problem. To see how effective gun laws are, read any crime report. It is illegal for felons to have a gun, but almost every arrest record says, “also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.”
Laws do not control criminals, only us law abiding citizens.
