How many would agree that “If we ban guns only the bad guys would have guns”? That only the government should have guns? That the government is an oligarchy? That the oligarchs are the bad guys? That the oligarchy wants to disarm the people to enslave them?
With Benito Mussolini?:
“The measures adopted to restore public order are: First of all, the elimination of the so-called subversive elements … They were elements of disorder and subversion. On the morrow of each conflict I gave the categorical order to confiscate the largest possible number of weapons of every sort and kind. This confiscation, which continues with the utmost energy, has given satisfactory results.”
With Adoph Hitler?:
“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.”
“All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.”
With Dianne Feinstein?:
“If I could have banned them all - ‘Mr. and Mrs. America turn in your guns’ - I would have!”
“I don’t believe people should to be able to own guns.”
- Barack Obama (during conversation with economist and author John Lott Jr. at the University of Chicago Law School in the 1990s)
Should gun possession be treated the same as dangerous motor vehicles, educate, license, register and insure?
If Cruz could have killed as many people by driving a vehicle into a crowd why did he use a rifle?
Does banning guns end the reasons people kill such as poverty, authoritarianism, disempowerment, abuse, jealousy, PTSD, anti-depressants, alcohol, grief, disrespect, humiliation, bullying, bad example, revenge, ignorance, brainwashing, etc.?
