You can pass a gun control law every day for the next five years and confiscate the guns from every law-abiding citizen at your peril. There will always be predators, well-armed criminals and sociopaths to prey on society. There will always be stupid parents who will allow guns to fall into the hands of children. These facts are well documented, yet there are self-serving politicians and their liberal allies who wish to disarm the population and trash the Second Amendment. Why do they wish to create an America without the means for its citizens to defend themselves or their loved ones against the threat of harm or tyranny?
The majority of law-abiding citizens do not trust the government to protect them and fear the government more than the criminal. History has taught us that governments, in their quest for absolute power, will go to great lengths to control the masses. In the last century alone, an excess of 150 million people were slaughtered by their own governments. History has also taught us that the same formula was used to destroy the greatest civilizations over the millenniums. Please note the formula for absolute control by a power-crazed oligarchy of powerbrokers.
- Destroy the moral fiber that is the matrix that holds a civilized society together. This will create so many social and economic problems that will surely destroy the Social Order.
- Destroy all religious belief in God, the Bible and the Commandments. This will promote a culture hostile to religion where man no longer needs God and the children are not taught the Christian moral and ethical values that a civilized society must have to survive. The nation will lose its social conscience and barbarism will prevail.
- The power to tax is the power to destroy. Taxing people beyond reasonable limits will destroy segments of society that are productive. This will force governments to develop more and more nefarious methods to complete the transfer of wealth. This will result in each succeeding generation being much poorer with a gradual erosion of the strong middle class and the transfer of wealth to the Oligarchs will be complete.
- Take away their firearms and all means of self-protection and they will be an easy prey and offer minimal resistance, for what they cannot control they will destroy.
No, my friends, more gun laws will not improve the diminished social conscience, poor parenting or the criminal justice system. I pray that our leaders have the wisdom and vision to distinguish the real core of the problem and not be blinded by the smoke screen that liberal gun control activists have thrown up to obscure 40 years of moral and social decline that is the root cause of the problem. Any politician, religious or academic leader who does not understand these facts are in the wrong job and must be history illiterate. I suggest that you review the demise of the greatest civilizations of record, Greece and Rome. More recently, France and Russia. It took only 10 years to destroy 400 years of French civilization. It may be well to remember the motto of the minutemen — “The Price of Freedom is Eternal Vigilance.”
