Happiness is a Warm Gun

by

H.R. 45 is being talked about on Capital Hill.  On the surface it seems just an extension of Gun Registration only at the Federal Level.  This of course makes it so the Fed will know the location of every LEGAL gun in the United States.  Knowledge is a powerful thing as we all know.  If you know where the gun is, it saves you the effort of looking for it.

So let’s take a stroll down History Lane and see what has happened when Government takes guns.

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend  themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.  (That would be “Uncle Joe”, FDR’s friend)

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5  million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. (This doesn’t count the tens of millions starved for fighting collective farming)

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one  million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Anyone notice a pattern here?

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own Government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million
dollars.

Let’s see how that worked for them:

Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent.

Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent.

Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in  armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of  the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort, and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    Don’t misunderstand me; I think HR 45, and virtually any limitation on or scrutiny about, private gun ownership is offensive to the Framers’ intents about individual rights to guns [which is quite broader than the pro-federalism purpose of the 2d Amendment, but I rarely expect our supreme court to be truly faithful to the Framers’ intents]. However, there are increasing instances of people individually taking their legitimate complaints about cops to the streets with guns, because neither jurors nor judges nor the administrative power structure will provide remedies for police excesses, yet very, very few of us, seeing that a cop is shot, ever asks himself “I wonder what the cop did.” Most angrily say “a dirtbag shot one of our protectors.” And until people start to have that animus about what the cops did wrong, that curiosity, the real meaning of the 2d Amendment will never come to the top.

    Of course, we’ll never get a group together unified on the goal, because we can’t even get people to study the Constitution and the founding premises.

    And on the final point you will get no disagreement sir.

    Although it is true that one of the vital reasons that the people were protected in their rights to possess firearms is to protect themselves, and all of us, from governmental tyranny, and although it is true that wherever guns were outlawed, the government became the ultimate outlaw and victimized its people, whenever someone shoots a cop, the cop is presumed in the right and the shooter is presumed in the wrong, and none of the so-called conservatives have voiced a sentiment that perhaps the shooter was doing simply what the Framers envisioned, resisting overweening government. Not once.
    ==================================
    And I would point out cap that while what you say is true, the empirical evidence shows that it is simply a case of the bad guy not wanting to be caught.

    Let’s not get into too much hair splitting. A hand full of bad guys is not a revolution. Even Waco doesn’t get there. Now if you get a group together and start a movement, get gunned down by the police, then we have real tyranny. And I believe that is where we are going with Bills like HR 45.

    This is one of your best, Chas.

    Thank you Ms. Liz.

    As Mr. Adams said, facts are stubborn things. This is great, chas, absolutely one of your best pieces ever. Look at D.C. They have some of the strictest gun laws on the books, and some of the highest armed crime rates.

    You know that I will be sharing this with all my friends and family. You’re familiar with my thoughts on this subject, as you have surely heard me opine frequently!

    From my cold, dead hands, friend.
    ==========================
    Thank you Sterling. For a long time DC was the murder capital of the Country as well as the Nation’s Capital. And even with the USSC reversing their unconstitutional gun ban, they still try and parse the law to restrict certain handguns.

    If it’s the Government always remember this, it is never about the safety, money or the people, it’s about power and control. Remember what Mr. Jefferson; Democracy is 51% of the people taking away the rights of the other 49%.

    So true Chas….remember the saying If every honest person turns in their guns, then only criminals will have guns.

    And if you doubt that just look at what happened down under.
