It’s not “gun reform.” It’s not even “gun control.” It’s civilian disarmament. The organizations lobbying to “strengthen gun regulations”—the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, the Campaign to Stop Gun Violence, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Americans for Responsible Solutions, etc.—want to strip Americans of their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Mother Jones provides more evidence (if evidence were needed) that these groups are gun grabbers with their summary of post-Newtown gun control laws: More Than Half of Americans Now Have Tougher Gun Laws. The article’s bullet points trumpet the fact that . . .
• 41 new laws in 21 states and DC made it harder for people to own guns, carry them in public, and enhanced the government’s ability to track guns . . .
• Together, these laws affect more than 189 million people.
What part of that is desirable? Why is it a good thing that it’s harder for people—not criminals or psycho killers—to own guns? Why is it a good thing that it’s harder for people—not criminals or psycho killers—to carry guns in public? And what kind of person thinks it’s a good idea that the government should have a greater ability to track the private ownership of firearms?
Someone without the slightest grasp of history (e.g. the Holocaust) or current events (e.g. Mexico). Someone who believes that [fire]power should be concentrated in the hands of the state for the good of the people. Someone who believes, however unconsciously, in fascism.
“Gun Reform” is an insidious term because it is vague and, essentially, meaningless. Criminals can be reformed. Guns cannot. Gun laws can be reformed. Doing so “reforms” (as in reconstitutes) the basic social compact between free citizens and their government established and protected by the Second Amendment to the United Constitution.
Do not be fooled. Ever. No matter what gun control advocates call their crusade, no matter what the say about the Second Amendment, they are not for it. They are against it. And being against it means they are against your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Big time.
