The above video from Women Against Gun Violence is yet another example of the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex waving the bloody shirt for gun control. Even though the people talking to the camera are actors, the WAGV video has some emotional oomph. The pro-gun side’s messaging, not so much.
The Truth About Guns regularly runs features called “It Should Have Been a Defensive Gun Use” and “This is What Happens to a Disarmed Populace.” They’re pretty much what I’m talking about: confronting firearms freedom fence-straddlers with the brutal truth behind gun control. Unarmed citizens are attacked, brutalized and killed.
Only not really. We don’t go full Eastwood. We don’t show/talk about the grisly, emotional aftermath of civilian disarmament. Should we? Should someone? Or should the pro-gun rights side continue to take the high road and make calm, rational arguments for defending and extending Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and be arms?
