Gun control isn’t about guns, nor about “controlling” them…

It’s about POWER – who controls it and, through it, controls YOU.

The Social Marxists know the statistics. Probably better than you and I put together. They just don’t care what the statistics say… the only thing they care about is their own personal power. Keeping it and increasing it.

They know that guns are a tangible manifestation of Power. And, whoever controls the most guns, controls the most power. They won’t have true, complete power unless and until you, me, and everyone else in this country is disarmed. Period. So long as we retain firearms, then we retain the means to oppose them in the only real way that matters…

If you don’t believe that, go up to any random house, unarmed, and try to forcefully make the owner give you the contents of his wallet. I double dog dare you. If you try that – and live to tell the tale – please let us know the details.

The statists – usually the “There aughta be a law!” crowd – are usually dupes. The Useful Idiots. They are the ones the Social Marxists are going for when some tragedy happens. They – the Social Marxists – already have bills pre-written, with only the details of the tragedy left out. They sit and languish, waiting and praying for someone to do something heinous and stupid so they can be Johnny-On-The-Spot with their New-And-Improved Bill that will make all future (fill in the blanks) impossible… .which is a lie, but they literally use the bodies of the dead in order to make political mileage… off of outrage. Cue the “THERE AUGHTA BE A LAW!” people…

The Social Marxists learned the lessons taught by their predecessors – the Fabian Socialists – very well. They wrap their arguments up in neat little lies, like “common sense” legislation, or “reasonable” or “it’s for the chiiiiiilllldren”…. which automatically paints the opposition into a blind corner. Opposing them means you are, by default, “unreasonable” don’t care about children and don’t have any common sense… which is the Big Lie.

What they are doing is called “incrementalism”…. eating the elephant, one bite at a time…

Sure, today it might be “Oh, we only want to take away guns from the mentally ill… not YOU personally.”…. okay, but let’s look at who gets to define mental illness. Who controls that narrative? What metric are they using? Will the things covered under “mental illness” stay the same as today?

You can bet it won’t. What happens if some rich Social Marxists get together and fund some super-leftist psychologists or psychiatrists (you think they could find any of those laying around? Bueller?) to come up with some “study” that says PREPPING DEMONSTRATES A PROPENSITY FOR PARANOID DELUSIONS AND A PROFOUND DISTRUST OF AUTHORITY. Your neighbor calls the BATFE or worse – Homeland – because she knows you have some of those evil, icky guns and that you’re a self-declared “prepper”…. bye bye freedom, bye bye guns, bye bye life…

I am morally opposed to all gun control. Not because I’m an agent of chaos or I like seeing dead kids on TV or anything like that… because I know that once the camel’s nose is under the tent, it absolutely will not stop until one side, or the other, is dead.

NB: The IIA in America isn’t about self defense, or target shooting, or hunting, or the Olympics… those are all nice side effects of the IIA. But they are NOT why it was written.

The IIA was written so that in the event a tyrannical government ever arose in this country, that we would stand a fighting chance against it. Period. It is the ultimate firewall against Tyranny and for Liberty… so that we could oppose Tyrannical force with Righteous force…

The wicked flee when none pursueth..." - Proverbs 28:1
