Gun Control vs. Crime Control

Gun Control

Gun Control (Photo credit: cgulyas2002)

After the shooting in a crowded movie theater near Denver, Colorado, liberals want to talk about gun control again. Why don’t we shift that debate away from what the left seems to think is the answer i.e. increasing gun control. Ergo, now you can be safe in the movie theater or on an airplane or at school because no one will have guns… Does this ring true to you?  Let’s reframe this discussion. What if we advocate that more people should be carrying guns.

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. –The Constitution of the United States; Amendment 2

What if those 70 shooting victims in the Aurora movie theater had been armed? Do you suppose there may have been fewer casualties? Has our society degraded to the point where we can’t trust normal law-abiding citizens to protect themselves and fight off mass shooters? Is the liberal lens such that they figure no regular people should have guns. I guess it makes it easy for the police to deal with that armed situation… Police can just shoot anybody who has a gun because they obviously should not have them….

I would be interested in some history on this point. We have the impression from movies and books that most frontier Americans carried a six shooter on their belt, or a derringer in their garter, and a rifle on their horse or in the wagon. When did this stop being commonplace? How were violent crime rates and accidental shooting death rates back then?

Here is the unfortunate situation in our modern education system:

 You are just evolved blobs of tissue.

There is no absolute right or wrong

Hmm. is it any wonder this de-volves into the social chaos which our nation seems to be heading toward. Having a gun to protect my family and property from would-be crooks seems to be becoming a necessity.
