Make no mistake that everything government is engaged in today, from legislation to regulation, is almost always about control, not freedom, liberty, or innovation. It’s about controlling people, not empowering them.
“When I feel the heat, I see the light,” said life-long Illinois politician Everett Dirksen.
Given how quickly the “follow the science” crowd has changed their tune on mask and vaccine mandates, you’d think they must be feeling some heat, right? Clearly, politicians are feeling heat from an angry electorate as well as witnessing what’s happening in Canada.
And light appears to have been seen.
I bet they had an after-election report on Virginia and polling on the current lay of the land. You can say they’re following the science, but the President, Fauci, and CDC all say the science isn’t there yet to get rid of masks. But the Dems flipped after that meeting.

While The Truth About Guns is all about, well, the truth about guns and not the folly of face diapers and vax passports, both subjects show how anti-freedom politicians use the perception of risk to control people, “for our own good.”
Just as gun control advocates pretend racist, classist, and sexist gun control will make us safer, so too do these same hacks who worship at the alter of mandates like to pretend that masks stop virus particles.
Guns protect children and families. Masks do not.

If masks really worked, then why do politicians and so-called “VIPs” not wear them? Simple. For the same reason the same nanny-state control freaks, media members and Hollywood luminaries have guns to protect themselves while they want to place more gun control restrictions on the little people. They are shameless hypocrites.
Here’s the video of every celebrity without a mask during the Super Bowl. But every kid in California will have to be wearing them tomorrow in school. They must all be holding their breaths the entire game. pic.twitter.com/Dc9yVd7RPf

Note the those who were caught maskless in that short clip.
Jay Z (“Jay-Z and NFL Share Powerful Gun Violence PSA“), Matt Damon (“I Wish We Could Be Sensible Like Australia“), LeBron James (“There’s No Room For Guns“), Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck (“Jennifer Lopez, Jimmy Fallon, Lady Gaga Sponsor Buses to March for Our Lives“), and Emmitt Smith (“NFL Hall-Of-Famers Back Gun Control Laws in New PSA“).
Every last one of them have advocated for gun control for you and me, while they enjoy life behind armed guards, sans masks. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds.
Inflation, COVID, crime, and guns: we’ve all been gaslighted by the Biden administration, America’s fake-news media, and most Democrats on these issues, some for a lot longer than others.
As gun owners, instead of manipulating people as the media and politicians do, we need to help make our fellow Americans better, more informed citizens. When we’re informed, we can vote out those who want to put and keep Americans on the gun control plantation. Gun rights are human rights and gun control is still used to keep poor people disarmed to this day.
Obviously we’re probably not going to re-establish pro-gun supermajorities in the US House and Senate in a single election cycle, but we can take a big step towards that end this November. And while we’ll have to wait two-plus years to rid ourselves of Joe Biden, we can send packing many of those hypocritical gun control advocates who spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on armed security for themselves and their families while demanding the little people surrender their guns and rely on police for their safety.
Electing people who support and defend our rights takes work, though. Educate your friends, family members, and those within your circle of influence. Make darn sure they vote for the right people – the people who back your right to defend yourself and your family. Make sure they, and you, vote for candidates who advocate for your family’s safety and not people like those “progressive” prosecutors who coddle violent criminals, or won’t prosecute them at all.
No matter the zip code, we all deserve safe neighborhoods in which to live and raise our families. Help to empower your fellow Americans, not to enslave them with the shackles of gun control.
