The on-going debate on gun control shows that history does repeat itself. Time passes, and memory dims. Events that once shook the world are now nothing more than forgotten horrors to be read in old history books. These books and the old bodies moldering in their graves seem to have no impact on today’s world, where new generations enjoy the fruits of their forgotten sacrifices. People today enjoy the benefits that were long ago paid for with spilled blood, while having to spill none of their own.
We are living in a time of a “gimme generation,” a generation that seems to want everything for nothing, and they want it now. They demand instant gratification for their every desire – after all, the world owes them a living, right? So in attempting to achieve their Utopia on Earth, they are willing to sacrifice a few basic rights in exchange for a temporary sense of safety, and fairness, while getting all their free stuff, without having to pay for it or make any sacrifices of their own.
Today’s politician simply has to tell the masses what they want to hear, with pretty words, while telling them something is for their own safety or the public good. But while people are enjoying their easy life and free stuff, they don’t remember that everything comes with a price, and there really isn’t any free stuff. The Government cannot give you anything that it does not first take away from someone else, but it can control your life through laws, regulations, and taxation.
The main topic of discussion these days is gun control. Liberal progressive politicians are trying hard to convince people to give up their guns in order to stop violence. You know the mantra: Guns are bad and hurt people, so give up your guns while we all sing Kumbaya. Without guns it will be a safer world for everyone. But there is a problem with this mantra: Do you really think criminals will give up their guns? Each gun law seems to just give birth to yet more gun laws. When the citizens’ guns are gone and only the government has guns, what then? We will be at the mercy and control of the prevailing regime of the time, with no means to resist. When this happens, the government is no longer the servant, but the master. It will then enact even more laws for “your protection” and the sheeple will have no choice but to fall in lock step and obey.
Consider the following historical facts:
1929 – the USSR established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, approximately 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
1911 – Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
1928 – Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill and others who were unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
1935 – China established gun control. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
1956 – Cambodia established gun control. From 1975 to 1977 one million “educated” people, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
1964 – Guatemala established gun control. From 1964 to 1981, one hundred thousand Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated
1970 – Uganda established gun control. From 1971 to 1979 three hundred thousand Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated
The body count is not yet in on the number of Serbs who were unable to defend themselves and were exterminated, but the television images should still be fresh in your mind. Adding the victims of genocide in Barundi, Darfur, and Iraq brings the total number of victims who lost their lives because of gun control to approximately 100 million people in the last century. These are cold, hard facts.
Every time gun registration has been enacted “for the safety of citizens,” it has led to gun confiscation.
We should learn from the mistakes of the past: the next time someone speaks out in favor of gun control, ask which group of citizens they want to see exterminated.
Rights are lost in small, insidious increments that seem inconsequential at the time, but they are never regained. Compare the erosion of rights to the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon was not formed in one fell swoop, but little by little, day by day, grain of sand by grain of sand until finally there was a gaping chasm. Rights that were paid for in blood are now being frittered away by a generation that has never had to sacrifices (with the exception of the few and the proud who voluntarily join the military). How many of these individuals has ever stood graveside to accept a folded flag “On behalf of a grateful nation”?
Even the leader of the greatest nation on earth has never spent a day in the armed service of his country. Yet the “gimme generation” saw nothing wrong with this and elected him to the highest office in the land-not once but twice. The Oval Office where Obama puts his feet on the desk is the same Oval Office where Woodrow Wilson guided the country during WWI, Franklin Roosevelt steadied the helm during the dark days of WWII, Harry Truman gave the orders to load the Enola Gay and Bock’s Car with Little Boy and Fat Man; and where Presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon set the course that took us into and out of Viet Nam. It is the same office where President George Bush drew a line in the sand and put an end to the atrocities of Saddam Hussein. That Office and all those events were bought and paid for in American blood.
If you make a lie big enough and repeat it often enough, people will believe it and the myth becomes reality. Gun control is NOT for the ‘good of the people’; gun control is about one thing and one thing only: government control!
Wake up America!!!!
