We're Not Disarming Fast Enough for the Left

by baldilocks

The women of this coun­try learned long ago, those with­out swords can still die upon them. – Eowyn, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Tow­ers (movie quote)

They’ve been try­ing to get ‘er done for some time. Every­thing we see in the media right now are just the new tac­tics. The attacks on the NRA seem point­less, but I don’t think the Orga­nized Left cares about tak­ing down the NRA. Not really. A mind­set is being planted.

That’s why I’m not inter­ested in argu­ing with peo­ple who want to leave me defense­less against the next demonic attack … er … mass shoot­ing. Most pro-​gun com­men­ta­tors, includ­ing me, fig­ured out a while back that the Orga­nized Left had long wanted to turn the USA into a full-​blown Left­ist Par­adise — one likely to be replete with car­tels and jihadists armed with AK-​47s and the like, true auto­matic rifles — have long had one fact which makes the trans­for­ma­tion an iffy propo­si­tion: per­sonal and legal own­er­ship of firearms.

I said the fol­low­ing in 2003, the first year I started blogging:

It’s been demon­strated that states which have lib­eral (not Lib­eral) CCW reg­u­la­tions tend to have lower vio­lent crime rates, so what could be the pur­pose of not adopt­ing these reg­u­la­tions? Why would a gov­ern­ment not want its cit­i­zens to be able to pro­tect themselves?

  • The gov­ern­ment may want the aver­age cit­i­zen to depend on the gov­ern­ment for his/​her pro­tec­tion. This will plant the idea that cit­i­zens can count on the gov­ern­ment for nearly all of their needs. No, it doesn’t mat­ter how demon­stra­bly false the idea is. As we’ve seen in count­less other mat­ters, as long as the lie seed is planted, the lie will flour­ish, serenely unhin­dered by the facts.
  • A gov­ern­ment may want to be able to act with auton­omy with­out wor­ry­ing about an armed cit­i­zenry ris­ing up in protest. (See National Social­ist Ger­many, the Soviet Union and Cuba.)
  • When a cer­tain seg­ment of its cit­i­zenry is hard­est hit by gun vio­lence, a gov­ern­ment may just “let them kill each other,” tak­ing care of the prob­lem that way, or so it would seem. The gov­ern­ment fig­ures that the law-​abiding cit­i­zens will even­tu­ally just give up and move out. (See Chicago.)

Are any of these sup­po­si­tions — or oth­ers – part of the goals of those who con­tinue to chip away at the Sec­ond Amend­ment? I don’t know. I do know that it has been con­tin­u­ously demon­strated both in the USA and in other coun­tries that an unarmed cit­i­zenry is a vul­ner­a­ble one — both from small-​time crooks and from the big-​time ones.

The Facebook/​Twitter/​CNN pos­ing is fun, but when all is said and done, the anti-​gun elite want you dead or afraid to die, which, spir­i­tu­ally, amount to the same thing.

They’ve been trying to get ‘er done for some time. Everything we see in the media right now are just the new tactics. The attacks on the NRA seem pointless, but I don’t think the Organized Left cares about taking down the NRA. Not really. A mindset is being planted.

That’s why I’m not interested in arguing with people who want to leave me defenseless against the next demonic attack … er … mass shooting. Most pro-gun commentators, including me, figured out a while back that the Organized Left had long wanted to turn the USA into a full-blown Leftist Paradise — one likely to be replete with cartels and jihadists armed with AK-47s and the like, true automatic rifles — have long had one fact which makes the transformation an iffy proposition: personal and legal ownership of firearms.

I said the following in 2003, the first year I started blogging:

It’s been demonstrated that states which have liberal (not Liberal) CCW regulations tend to have lower violent crime rates, so what could be the purpose of not adopting these regulations? Why would a government not want its citizens to be able to protect themselves?

  • The government may want the average citizen to depend on the government for his/her protection. This will plant the idea that citizens can count on the government for nearly all of their needs. No, it doesn’t matter how demonstrably false the idea is. As we’ve seen in countless other matters, as long as the lie seed is planted, the lie will flourish, serenely unhindered by the facts.
  • A government may want to be able to act with autonomy without worrying about an armed citizenry rising up in protest. (See National Socialist Germany, the Soviet Union and Cuba.)
  • When a certain segment of its citizenry is hardest hit by gun violence, a government may just “let them kill each other,” taking care of the problem that way, or so it would seem. The government figures that the law-abiding citizens will eventually just give up and move out. (See Chicago.)

Are any of these suppositions—or others–part of the goals of those who continue to chip away at the Second Amendment? I don’t know. I do know that it has been continuously demonstrated both in the USA and in other countries that an unarmed citizenry is a vulnerable one—both from small-time crooks and from the big-time ones.

The Facebook/Twitter/CNN posing is fun, but when all is said and done, the anti-gun elite want you dead or afraid to die, which, spiritually, amount to the same thing.
