Every day, we are gaining ground on the AMSOC Progressivevik party. Conseravtives, look no further than the March 5th Rasmussen poll that states 69% of likely voters say cities don't have the right to restrict handgun ownership.
Thank The Big Conservative Upstairs. I was getting a little worried.
Despite what gun grabbers like Rosie O'Donnell would have you believe, the Right to Bear arms is one of the most important rights we have as American citizens. The Right to Bear Arms guarantees peace between government and citizen. The Founders realized that the open society they were creating left the door wide open for a maniacal dictator type and the citizenry needed to be able to take up arms against that hypothetical tyranny, which, thank God, has yet to happen, and it never will, as long as the people can be armed.
Yet, the Progressiveviks want to take that right away. Why ?
The Progressiveviks would have you believe that guns cause crime, despite the fact that gun bans actually cause an increase of gun related crimes. Only law-abiding citizens comply with gun laws. Criminals have no such compunctions. They see it as the government making targets much easier to dominate.
Let's take Great Britain for example. In 1997, the British government banned the ownership of handguns. By 2001, the left leaning BBC reported that gun crimes had risen by 40% since the ban. Now that the people were turned into sheep, they were left defenseless against the criminal wolves. Why ? Criminals lost the fear that the person they were robbing or mugging might be packing some heat. Criminals saw it as a golden opportunity, since anyone with some spare change could get a "Saturday Night Special" but law-abiding citizens had to hope that the police would arrive in time to save the day. Call me crazy and off my meds, but that doesn't seem fair, does it ?
Now, don't get me wrong, psychos and loonies use legally purchased guns all the time. (See Nidal Hassan for further details.) The real solution to that problem is very easy. Commit a crime with a gun, you get the death penalty. It's that simple, and even someone like Keith Olbermann with his barely simian intelligence could understand that. Forget all the legal mumbo-jumbo. Kill someone with a gun when it's not self defense, you go to the chair and fry like bacon. I, as a rational person, can't condone punishing the many for the crimes of a few. Too bad the Progressiveviks don't see it that way.
If it doesn't gall you that citizens have to go all they way to the Supreme Court to defend the most straight forward right in the Bill of Rights, like they did in DC and are doing in Chicago, then you should move to Britain.
I hear they're looking for new victims. The old ones are dying out.
