Self-Defense: Proof of Importance

This week Target’s interim CEO, John Mulligan, announced “starting today we will also respectfully request that guests not bring firearms to Target – even in communities where it is permitted by law.“.

It seems Target’s new CEO is trying to have his cake and eat it too!  He seems to be pandering to the Anti-Second Amendment crowd with language they can interpret as they want; or if they aren’t that blind then they see this as a step in the right direction.

Despite Moms Demand Action and Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun group very quick Victory Dance and viral comments, they seem to have lost their ability to understand basic English.  That or Target’s Interim CEO doesn’t understand the words he is using.  From the above “respectfully request” is merely a request not a real ban…right?  Luckily someone decided to ask Target to clarify, according to The Columbian,

Molly Snyder, a Target spokeswoman, said the retailer will not post signs at its stores asking people not to bring guns inside. “It is not a ban,” she said. “There is no prohibition.”  She said the company decided to make this statement after hearing from people on all sides of this issue.

I have to say this is probably the biggest non-story ever, yet everyone seems so excited.  I mean Target might as well have announced they are changing their logo from white and red pattern to a red and white pattern!  Fortunately, absolutely nothing has changed  and you can still carry your legal self-defense weapon while shopping.

Since this story is a great opening to discuss the effectiveness of guns for self-defense/preservation.  And the Anti-Second Amendment crowd always seems to fall back to the “that is what we have police for” argument, followed by plugging their ears and repeating, “nah nah I can’t hear you“.  We have to be honest, the Anti-Second Amendment “supporters” are using emotional arguments that do not hold up to logic.  Unfortunately not many people use critical thinking and get caught up in the emotions of “gun violence”.  This is nothing new, manipulators use emotions to motivate/influence a crowd.  But what about the claim that we do not need to protect ourselves, because we have a dedicated Police Force?

If that is so true, why do most Police departments hold or sponsor Self-Defense classes?  To really see how often people need their Second Amendment Rights to protect and preserve themselves, check this out… Here is the Proof that the Right to Bear Arms is a matter of life or death: Great Map of Incidents where Privately Owned Guns Save Lives

Because Self-Defense is that Important

Some will take issue with the following graphic, to bad.  Self-Defense is to important an issue to tip-toe around, if you want to be a victim then by all means I will not stand in your way, however you should not require other to be victims against their will!  History speaks for itself, this graphic make it clear that no matter how “pure” your motives may be, if you lobby for gun control then you are aligned with some the most evil leaders in history.  That doesn’t make you evil, just misguided, like so many before you.  Unlike them however you have a choice, you can educate yourself or you can blindly follow evil.  Here is the list:

 

historical-gun-control-stances

The majority of gun control advocates that I have spoken with as well as their written arguments usually boil down to fear; they are afraid and they want to feel safe.  Fear is not a good motivator for any decision, it usually leads to an emotional response which is devoid of logic or reason.  I always like to ask this question, why?  I continue asking why and eventually you often get an honest answer.  Then I always like to ask, one guns are controlled, what is next?  Believe me and History, there is always a next…(see the above list)…

Rules do not make the world safe.  Rules set a standard for all of us, I am not against rules.  However, rules do nothing to keep us safe; look at all the mass shootings, all of them have occurred in “Gun Free Zones”.  You don’t read about the shootings in other places because typically someone with a gun stopped the shooter.  My point is if you depend on the rules, the law, to keep you safe you will be greatly and perhaps fatally disappointed.  The Police cannot be everywhere, nor do I think we want them everywhere, that is however what the men in the second row of the image want, total control.

In Ancient China and Japan it was against the law for citizens (the working class) to possess or learn to use weapons.  Over the course of centuries the people taught themselves how to defend against the government oppressors, but at great human cost.  Thankfully today because of their efforts we have the Martial Arts, Karate, Kung Fu, etc.  Their techniques were appropriate and while disadvantaged effective given the weapons of the time.  Guns changed all that.  Any Martial Artist or Self-Defense expert will tell you, if you face a gun, comply unless you feel that regardless the outcome will be fatal; even then you have to be within arms length to have a prayer of survival.  That only applies against a single gunman.  What can the masses do against a dozen without massive human sacrifice and still no assurance of victory.   Given the weapons of today our only protection in some situations and always against a government are guns, even then with the advanced weapons available that is questionable.  But better to have a chance then stand as sheep before the slaughter.  Self-Defense is a choice; it is a Right, a Natural Right.  If you want to give up your right, to place your well being in the hands of another, please do so, but do not try to regulate the rights of others, to do so is to side with Evil.

Meet Robert Steed, a resident of Vernon, Connecticut who took three days straight off work to attend several gun control hearings in Connecticut. There isn’t a lot I can add to his testimony.

Robert Steed did a great job!

I am not sure which Representative dais this, he is clearly visible in the video (if you know who he is please post it in the comment section), but his word choice was interesting:

“As long as we live in an open and free democratic society your not going to be able to get a handle on all of the violence in our society.  …You’ll  get a better handle on it in a Dictatorship where they take all your guns and watch your every move….” …”we don’t want to go down that road”…

I believe in reading between the lines, especially with politicians.  First I thought to even bring a dictatorship up in the debate was interesting, but notice his wording at the end.  …”We don’t want to go down that road”  Wouldn’t it have been more appropriate (if you felt the need to even go there) to end with, but that will never happen in here, in this country.

On March 19th he was back at it again…

In follow-up testimony Robert Steed again knocks the ball out of the park!  Here it is:

 

The 2nd Ammendment

Think you know what the 2nd amendment is for, think the world safe, think you know what you are talking about?  Invest 7 minutes, watch the video and perhaps you will be able to answer these questions honestly.  Or you can remain blind and deceived by the lord of lies and his minions…

IF only our citizens would elect someone with this much honesty and fortitude.  Alas we would rather elect a celebrity than a leader or statesman.  How blind are ‘we the people’ that we continue to be so short sighted…

PS:  I’ve been looking for a reason to use the world minions!!

I wish I had more time to write on this topic as I (like most people) could write volumes of intelligent articles to battle the emotional response under-informed citizens seem caught up in.  Since I don’t have a ton of spare time right now I wanted to share this video that covers all the major bases and mentions my home state, Connecticut!

Enjoy and please post your comments and opinions here so we can have a conversation or flame war, your choice 😉

This is the most lucid, intelligent, civil, well thought-out objection to current Gun Control proposals.

Gun Control

I’ve remained silent for a while now, out of respect for the dead and because I don’t like exploiting situations like this.  Unfortunately those who support gun control have no problem sensationalizing, over reporting, and frankly traumatizing the public with stories like these.  They have been at it for years, they will be at it for years to come.  Who wants gun control?  The uninformed and those who do not like the idea that you may be able to stand against the things they believe in.  Fascists, communists, socialists and progressives like gun control, history teaches us this.  Unfortunately we are living in a period of history where we (the collective we) have forgotten the lessons of history and begun to believe that we are better than our predecessors, more civilized.   These people think things turn bad quickly with easy to spot signs.  History teaches us differently.  From antiquity the story always plays out the same and unfortunately it always has the same ending, death and enslavement.  There are many different forms of slavery, they all begin with fear.  Guns level the playing field.  The age old mantra of gun control proponents is that if we have no guns society will be a a safer place.  Reality could not be further from that belief.

Let us say that we could in fact remove ALL of the guns from society, including those that the criminals have.  That would be utopia, no?  I mean crime would go down, no more crazy people shooting up schools and theatres and such…right?  Wrong.  So the criminals are disarmed does that mean they will suddenly become law abiding citizens?  No it does not.  But now they have the advantage.  How?  Well guns have an equalizing effect on society.  You see a 70 year old man being attacked by a 20-30 year old attacker is going to lose in 99% of the cases.  What choice do the defenseless (the children, the seniors, the women, the weak, the timid) have but to submit under gun control?  NONE.  Think about the defenseless group of “the weak” for a moment, that group might include a 6 foot 5 inch man who weighs 300 pounds, if he is confronted by 4-5 thugs with baseball bats.  The defenseless become anyone who is a law abiding citizen.  The criminals know this, the police know this, the politicians know this, they are banking on the fact that you won’t realize this.

Facts.  People who want gun control HATE FACTS.  They are emotional beings not willing to admit that bad things happen and life is often unfair and cut short.  They do not want to solve the problem, they want to feel better.  Unfortunately for them, only after we loose our freedom with they realize their mistake.  Anyone who ignores all facts and rationalizes away anything that conflicts with their ideas, is probably… well probably suffering from some sort of insanity.  I know that will make some cringe, but that is part of the problem.  Evil relies on the fact that “good”, nice people are willing to try to find compromise.  Good people do not compromise when the facts are on their side.  If they did, we would be drinking a lot more tea today!

Now that I have said most of my peace, I want to share a few videos that present a few different perspectives and some clarity on several issue I have not touched on.

Let’s start with the facts about the current gun control move, a decent presentation without the sensationalized coverage:

Next let’s look at the facts and a case study of a country, not unlike America, that has implemented gun control, Australia.  How has that been working out for them?  See for yourself:

Let’s see what Ice-T had to say about gun control after the 2012 shooting in Denver, CO.

I’ve already liked Ice-T, not necessarily a fan of his music but he is now one of my favorite people in Hollywood!

This slightly choppy, computer generate cartoon seems to cover every argument for gun control:

And of course probably my favorite, because it spoofs what the left wants but isn’t willing to do, live now be the rules they want to impose on all of us.  I think those in favor of Gun Control should implement this in their work and home immediately.  They could even label their cars!!  That would show how much support there is for gun control!  Take a look:

And the real reason we MUST fight Gun Control, to defend our liberty and our freedom.  Don’t believe it is possible:

For those not willing to understand history and not willing to look around the world with their eyes wide open, Gun Control may seem like a good idea.  To the rest of us, we understand that America is the last stand of freedom in the world, the last protector of liberty.

This is all that should *ever* need to be said about Gun Control…

Hitler:”This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!”
Chancellor, Germany, 1933
