Gun Control: A One Sided Conversation

historyThe word conversation in normal context means there is a give and take. But in the context of gun control, it will always mean one thing [to the left]:  They take and we are suppose to give.”  Wayne LaPierre

The new watchword for the ban gun crowd is “conservation” but unfortunately, this conversation is one sided.   2nd Amendment supporters aren’t allowed to have a voice.   Creating hatred for the NRA and gun owners  is the current one sided conversation that the left controls.

With the mass murder of school children in Connecticut by a clearly deranged killer,  the nature of the gun debate is being defined by Obama, Bloomberg, Diane Feinstein, the Brady Campaign and the lap dog media.   Much of this new “conversation” shows a concerted aura of hatred to those who defend their constitutional right to bear arms.

As an example, a retired commentator for the Des Moines Register, let loose a tirade on gun owners.  According to Donald Kaul, we need to “repeal the 2nd Amendment and “declare the NRA a terrorist organization,”  making membership illegal.   “Hey! We did it to the Communist Party, and the NRA has led to the deaths of more of us than American Commies ever did. (I would also raze the organization’s headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that’s optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that “prying the guns from their cold, dead hands” thing works for me.  I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control.  And if that didn’t work, I’d adopt radical measures.”

Nothing like a little vitriol from the left to prove the point that those like Kaul aren’t interested in addressing the problems with the country but in vilifying gun owners. 

At least he proved my point  –  the left’s end game is nothing short of confiscation – the forcible taking of our constitutionally protected private property.

Jason Whitlock, the Fox Sports writer Bob Costas credited for his revelation that America’s “gun culture” was responsible for  Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher’s murder/suicide,  likened the National Rifle Association to  the Ku Klux Klan.  “I believe the NRA is the new KKK.  And that the arming of so many black youths,  uh, and loading up our  community with drugs, and then just having an open  shooting gallery, is  the work of people who obviously don’t have our best  interests at heart.

Not content with blaming the National Rifle Association for  inner-city violence  in the African American community, Whitlock stated  that handgun ownership does  not “enhance liberty,” but instead damages  society because gun-ownership does  not make a  citizen safer.”   Advocating that all Americans,  especially minority  communities, should abdicate their rights  to self-defense in favor of  government protection is disconcerting.   Whitlock’s  advocacy for complete  disarmament appears to be rooted in social justice, but  his opinions  confirm a growing fear: most Americans under 50 know little of their history.

Then there is the senseless tirade from the “Gun Banners Blog”.   “It’s come to my attention that gun owners belong to the NRA and are Tea Party Insurrectionists Extremist Gunophile Fetishists.  It’s also notable that they will often give up their families, careers, and even their life to have “Wild West” type shootouts over minor disputes such as parking spots or to compensate for some other shortcoming.  I would like to join my peers and urge legislators at every level to Dis the Deadly Myths and Reclaim the Constitution, by proposing sensible and reasonable policies that register and eventually disarm the public though no one is talking about handgun bans.”

And if you aren’t convinced this is coming from someone of the Communist persuasion  – “My research as a violence policy advocate tells us that the Constitution is a Living Document that can be changed daily to reflect the readers view and the Second Amendment is an outdated concept because the police and military protect everyone at all times. . .Registration schemes are harmless to gun owners which has been proven in Illinois where records are public and crime guns and violence have been reduced creating the safest streets.”

Then there is Scott Blakeman, a left-wing Fox News contributor who joins in the “conversation” by calling  gun owners ‘terrorists.’   “The National Rifle Association essentially harbors terrorists, by resisting any attempt to apply sensible regulations on gun use. The NRA wants almost anyone to obtain virtually any kind of gun and unlimited amounts of ammunition. Hunters don’t need assault weapons or high capacity ammunition clips to shoot deer. These weapons and the ability to shoot more than 30 rounds at one time are for murdering large numbers of people.”

Starting to get the drift.  By vilifying gun owners and gun organizations, the left hopes to force our representatives, and I use that term loosely, to pass legislation that would fulfill Obama’s  and the United Nation’s wish list – a future confiscation of all firearms in America.

When it comes to the principle of losing freedom, there is nothing to talk about.  We must stand and fight!
