Posted on 12/19/2012 1:05:49 PM PST by DJ Taylor
The gun control debate, like all debates with the left, is reducible to the question of whether we are individuals who make our own decisions or a great squishy social mass that helplessly responds to stimuli. Do people kill with guns or does the availability of guns kill people? Do bad eating habits kill people or does the availability of junk food kill people?
To the left these are distinctions without a difference. If a thing is available then it is the cause of the problem. The individual cannot be held accountable for shooting someone if there are guns for sale. Individuals have no role to play because they are not moral actors, only members of a mob responding to stimuli.
You wouldnt blame a dog for overeating; you blame the owners for overfeeding him. Nor do you blame a dog for biting a neighbor. You might punish him, but the punishment is training, not a recognition of authentic responsibility on the part of the canine. And the way that you think of a dog, is the way that the left thinks of you. When you misbehave, the left looks around for your owner.

Whoever controls the guns controls the country. We the people now control the guns and if we ever give up our guns we will give up our freedom at he same time.
Our Founding Fathers knew exactly what they were doing when they put the Second Amendment into our Constitution.
Guns don’t kill people. Criminals, sociopaths, and totalitarian governments kill people. (Please pardon the redundancy.)
Thanks for the post.
None other than Adolf Hitler admitted that gun control was not about guns but about control.
“’The persuasion of power’
Asked about his organizing philosophy, Andy Stern summed it up this way: ‘[W]e prefer to use the power of persuasion, but if that doesnt work we use the persuasion of power.’
Stern and his shock troops have bullied companies from private equity firms to Burger King to food management company Aramark, who have resisted SEIUs attempts to organizer their workers. The Purple People have organized aggressive protests and a War on Greed campaign to pound the employers into submission.”
And now, 0bama/Jarrett/Holder are intent on making us an “offer” we “can’t refuse.”
Nice. Thanks for the comment....
