Vanity - An Attempt at a Concise Gun Control Argument
12/17/12 | dagogo redux

Posted on 12/17/2012 1:33:24 PM PST by dagogo redux

Historically, the world’s worst gun violence against fellow citizens has overwhelmingly occurred when the military and police forces of would be tyrants were not balanced by an adequately armed citizenry.

I'm trying to formulate a concise statement that refutes the essence of the Left's gun control arguments in light of recent events.

Thoughts, re-wordings, slings and arrows are all welcome.

As Rush said today, I will give up my firearms when you can absolutely guarantee I will never face an attacker for the rest of my life.

Until then, I will defend myself and my family until help can arrive.

Here’s your answer.

The constitution allows for gun ownership. The SC recently confirmed it. Until the constitution is amended, there is no argument required.

Let them argue that.

Conneticut has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, schools are “gun free zones”, if gun control laws worked, all those young souls would still be with us.

Great Britain’s gun crime rate has doubled since it outlawed handguns after the Dunblane massacre.

Tens of Millions of Americans own firearms, are law abiding citizens, and do not run around committing murder with those firearms.

Self defense is my right, and our government has no right to ban the sale of a firearm that will provide that defense.

I’m really, really worried about what Obama said.

“regardless of the politics...”

Read between the lines.

He was saying “No matter what, to hell with the Constitution and Congress, we’re gonna do something...”

You want concise wording for gun control.....

Second Amendment

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Ratified on December 17, 1791

The American Revolution began when the British tried to disarm the Colonists. (In Massachusetts of all places!)

It would be fitting if the Revolution ended with the Colonists demanding to be disarmed.

Government does not grant rights, it can only recognize rights given by God. We have a natural right to keep and bear arms for defense of our life and liberty and property.

2A is the last guarantee of our residual freedoms and rights. It goes, so do the rest.

It’s not 2A the Left is after; it’s the whole ball game.

I once debated the National Spokesman for the Brady Campaign live on my radio show.

He had no retort to my angle.

Only the 1st, 2nd and 4th Amendments contain the phrase "The right of the people".

I applied the logic of the gungrabber to the other amendments..."So you mean the 1st amendment only applies to Government approved journalism groups ?"...."So that would mean that only government employees are safe from unreasonable search and seizure ?"...

This method has no defendable ground.

When he went into the predictable "The founding fathers never foresaw assault weapons" I responded with "neither did they foresee internet pornography or surveilance cameras".

Stay away from the standard "militia" definitions, the word has been over demonized. Thank God for us that our founders used the phrase "The right of the People". Use it.

Also know that in the end, no debate won or lost will amount to a hill of beans. Sooner or later this will turn into a civil war.

Criminals prefer unarmed victims, especially when said criminals hold public office.

I will give up my guns when I’m dead.

They will go to my brother then.

Nothing else.
