The "Inconvenient Truth"
Just as the gun grabbers use the wrong methods to “reduce gun violence,” so are the real reasons FOR gun violence ignored. It's not the guns, it's the people. As this linked article says, the reasons for gun violence are, the popularization of violence in the media, the abuse of drugs, poverty caused by welfare, and one-parent families (usually the mother). But if I were to choose ONE THING that is the MOST responsible, I'd choose the use of illegal drugs. There is more crime committed to “get the next fix” than for any other reason. Another factor is the “cheapening of life” precipitated by the Supreme Court's MAKING A LAW that says it's “okay to murder infants in the womb, and now even OUT of it., therefore cheapening our reverence for life, itself.
That is emphasized by the current “Planned Parenthood controversy where there shouldn't be a controversy, at all. People called returning Vietnam veterans “baby killers,” and today, the same people ARE “baby killers." Anybody with half a brain would CONDEMN what Planned Parenthood is doing, but apparently there are very few people with half a brain left in this country, which is why stopping them is a “controversy.” It is this lack of intelligence that leads people to take up an illegal gun and kill people for little, or NO reason at all. In 1996, Australia flat-out BANNED GUNS. Then crime increased apace. The number of guns in Australia INCREASED, while OTHER violent crimes (using knives, heavy objects, and other killing tools including bare hands) increased, as well.
France has largely banned guns, as well. Even many of their COPS are unarmed, which became obvious when two Muslim terrorists attacked a newspaper for drawing a picture of Mohammed, and killed 11 innocent people. The responding cops, being unarmed, could do nothing but cower behind their cars while the criminals did their dirty work. Gun grabbers keep saying America has more gun violence than any other country. That's a bald-faced LIE. Australia (which banned guns entirely) has the LARGEST increase in violent crime, while America is 13th on the list of violent crime increases. I hate to say, “I told ya so,” but I told ya so. Will the anti-gun freaks listen to reason and logic? Not likely. That would take INTELLIGENCE, something that is in short supply among them. (The Right to Bear)
