Fewer Guns Means Fewer Killings Or Something

Remember how the gun grabbers say they aren’t gun grabbers, they just want to make it harder for Bad People to get their hands on firearms? And how gun rights supporters say “BS, you’re gun grabbers”? Yeah, Jill Filipovic at CNN proves us right yet again

Fewer guns mean fewer killings, and we all know it

The latest mass shooting in the United States has claimed the lives of 12 people, 11 of whom were city employees in Virginia Beach. The shooter, a longtime engineer for the city, also died. He used semi-automatic handguns with a sound suppressor and extended magazines to carry out his attack before he was killed in an ensuing shootout with the police. Additional weapons were found at the shooter’s home, although authorities did not specify what they were.

For the victims’ families and loved ones, this is a tragedy. But this shooting isn’t just a random catastrophe, and no pro-gun politicians get to call it one unless they also recognize their role in enabling it.

While public figures will undoubtedly continue to relay their thoughts and prayers, this is the reality: shootings where a great many people are slaughtered are now normal in the United States. This will continue until we all agree to stricter gun laws and fewer guns. Until then, all those who fight against sensible gun legislation have no business simply expressing their sympathies. They offer just words, which at this point are beyond meaningless.

Hmm, so, what’s she going to do, confiscate them from law abiding citizens? She doesn’t say, but, other than banning all legal sales of firearms, that’s the only other thing you can do.

Plenty of people like guns. Guns can be fun to shoot. A lot of people hunt for sport. A relatively small number of gun owners need their guns to, say, defend livestock from predators. But most gun owners do not need their guns. Many say they need to self-protect. But stricter gun control laws would mean fewer “bad guys with guns” to protect oneself from. We would all be safer.

So, disarm law abiding citizen with a pipe dream that bad guys won’t acquire guns themselves.

The rest is just as loony. Shocker, right?

    Where in the Constitution is the “Need For A Gun” clause?
    And who would decide a citizen’s so-called need? https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    “But stricter gun control laws would mean fewer “bad guys with guns” to protect oneself from.”

    That argument would be more credible if the Democrats weren’t at the same time importing hundreds of thousands of criminals from other countries and giving massive publicity to “mass shootings”. Such stories tell us all in unarguable logic that we all do need guns. Plus, we don’t need to speculate on what happens when a society disarms. Britain did it and their violent crimes enormously increased. South Africa did it and their violent crime (against Whites) enormously increased.
