Skip to comments.Deciphering How Statists Think about Gun Control
Posted on 09/10/2012 11:26:47 AM PDT by marktwain
Even though I dont own that many guns, Im an unyielding supporter of the 2nd Amendment. Indeed, I use gun control as a quick and simple of way of deciding whether politicians meet minimum standards of acceptability.
Im not a single-issue voter, though, since politicians have to pass a number of tests (unwavering opposition to tax hikes, support for entitlement reform, etc) before receiving the Dan Mitchell Seal of Approval. I guess this is why 99 percent of them fail.
But Im digressing. Back to the topic at hand, my support for private gun ownership and constitutional freedoms has motivated me to post several videos in the past few years.
* Ted Nugent talking about gun ownership and the right of self defense. * A look at the Switzerlands strong gun culture and the importance of self defense as a protection against oppression. * And some very powerful testimony to some weasels on Capitol Hill (make sure to pay attention around the 5:00 mark). * Ice-T talking about the real reason to defend and support the 2nd Amendment. * A heartwarming Christmas story.
Heres another video to add to the collection. Its a bit snarky and not exactly subtle, but Ive dealt with almost every one of the arguments youll hear from the liberal. Enjoy.

While it may label you as a “single-issue voter”, there is no other issue that so clearly defines how a politician views freedom, liberty, and the relationship between the government and the governed. If I have knowledge of a politician’s view on gun control, I can be nearly as insightful as the old Karnak gag on Johnny Carson as to the other issues of the day.
Left out a key thought, sorry.
If they quibble over "shall not be infringed" with regards to conceal carry, or assault rifles and high-capacity magazines, they'll reinterpret any other aspect of the Constitution to their liking, or disliking as the case may be.
Anyone who supports gun control can’t be very strongly committed to a pro-life position. Or an anti-crime position.
