Victims Of The Left

001Among President Clinton’s first acts upon taking office in 1993 was to disarm  U.S. soldiers on military bases. In March 1993, the Army imposed regulations  forbidding military personnel from carrying their personal firearms and making  it almost impossible for commanders to issue firearms to soldiers in the U.S.  for personal protection.

Because of Clinton, terrorists are free to attack military bases within the U.S. without fear of facing return fire from unarmed soldiers.  The carnage at Fort Hood was stopped by a civilian policewoman from off base, just as those victims at the Navy Yard lives depended on response from the local police.   How many lives were lost waiting for assisance?

Everyone wants to keep people safe but the problem is that law-abiding citizens,  not the criminals, terrorists, or mentally deranged individuals,  are  the ones who obey those laws. Gun Free zones, whether in schools, public buildings or on military bases end up disarming potential victims, not criminals.

The latest shoot spree at the Naval Yard  in D.C. is another example of this idiotisy.  And, as is the norm,  without waiting for evidence, the left jumps in with feet in mouth at another opportunity to advance disarmament.

Obama couldn’t wait to try and tie this latest tradegy to lack of gun control followed closely by non other than the Senates head gun hater Diane Feinstein.  “This is one more event to add to the litany of massacres that occur when a deranged person or grievance killer is able to obtain multiple weapons—including a military-style assault rifle—and kill many people in a short amount of time. When will enough be enough? Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country. We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.”  Apparently Feinstein thinks she knows more than those investigating this latest murder spree.

Officials said Aaron Alexis of Fort  Worth, Texas, a 34-year-old discharged Navy  engineer, with a history of mental illness,  entered the building with a Remington 870 12-gauge shotgun that he’d  purchased last week in Lorton, Va., and was later found with two additional  weapons, a Glock handgun and an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle.  One scenario authorities are investigating was whether he obtained the handgun and rifle at the scene, possibly from one of his victims.

Only an insane government would even consider restricting the liberties of American citizens based on the actions of a few disturbed individuals. But to the left, evidence doesn’t matter – the death of innocent victims doesn’t matter – all that matters is that they disarm every American so that we all can become potential victims of the government. 

“One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world can be cured by legislation.”  Thomas B. Reed, 1886
