Advocates of overturning the right to keep and bear arms have spent years deliberately turning innocents into victims of slaughter for the purpose of disarming the American people.
“Do as I say, not as I do,” they say. Gun-control zealots are predictably out in force after the Sandy Hook killings. For in the perverted mind of confiscation, supporters like Michael Bloomberg and Barack Obama, the murder of twenty kindergarten students represents a long-awaited opportunity to embarrass weak-kneed defenders of the Second Amendment into relenting to a nationwide assault against the foremost liberty of the American people.
On December 19th, New York Mayor Bloomberg favored USA Today readers with a 6 point guide to “stop gun madness.”
And like every previous claim of the hypocritical founder of Mayors Against (Illegal) Guns (Bloomberg enjoys the 24/7 protection of taxpayer funded, armed bodyguards as he denies gun ownership to fellow New Yorkers), the essay by Bloomberg is a study in calculated misdirection. For Bloomberg and other proponents of “common sense gun legislation” know full well that their proposed ban on the sale of “assault rifles” and “high-capacity” magazines will have no effect on gun crime.
Why craft legislation which purposely disarms only law abiding Americans? Why create and proudly advertise the existence of “gun free zones” which render countless people utterly defenseless against wanton killers?
If plans for gun confiscation are to succeed, the Left knows it must make firearms a loathsome commodity to an increasingly pro-gun populace. What better way to accomplish such a goal than to facilitate by statute the most murderous fantasies of psychopaths intent upon making their names and deeds part of American history?
So legislation was passed which guaranteed an unlimited supply of defenseless victims for prospective mass murderers. Gun free zones, though represented as safe havens, were knowingly and deliberately fashioned to facilitate leisurely slaughter as they provide only for the security and convenience of armed killers, not their statutorily disarmed victims.
And it was at Sandy Hook that the fondest wishes of gun-confiscation advocates have been granted. Knowing they will never have a better opportunity of success, Michael Bloomberg and other self-absorbed elitists will press demands for firearm bans and restrictions as never before. After all, only unfeeling monsters could defend Second Amendment rights in the face of twenty brutally murdered children.
What sort of perverse, diseased mind is required to deliberately legislate the assured slaughter of innocents in order to advance a political agenda? Perhaps the sort which has been so eagerly involved in promoting the murder of infants for decades.
Soon the banning of specified firearms will begin. When the next psychopath proves this latest gun control legislation to also be ineffective by design, another even more audacious round of gun bans will ensue. Then another and another until confiscation is deemed the “final solution” necessary for the protection of the people. From that day forward, self-defense will consist of begging for one’s life rather than defending it on equal terms!
It is then that the second American Revolution will begin as those who refuse to submit to the Left’s long anticipated decree of slavery will resist by every means at their command.
I only hope I’m around to fire the first shot.
