Gun Control on the Ropes
Article from For Liberty by Norm Leahy.
Amidst the clamor for justice system reforms in the wake of violence from protestors and police alike comes a radical idea: the gun control issue may have suffered most.
Writing in Reason Magazine, J.D. Tuccille notes that gun control advocates want to take guns out of private hands and place them entirely in the hands of government officials. Putting the constitutional issued aside, the last few days have demonstrated the real-life consequences of what happens when only the state has guns:
For those who have been advising Americans for years that we should lay down our own weapons and trust armed government employees to protect us and treat us with respect, 2020 has been a massive reality check. The year so far has demonstrated (once again) that the police can’t be relied upon to defend our lives and property, and often themselves pose threats against which we need to guard.
“It’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot,” [former New York City mayor Michael] Bloomberg and other gun control advocates insist.
No, thanks. If we were to follow the advice of those who would disarm us, we’d be even more at the mercy of Derek Chauvin and his buddies, and of anybody else with ill intent.
We’re left to wonder what the armed members of Mr. Bloomberg’s security detail think about that.

After all the BLM crap and the Chineese Virus, how do you Demorats think were going togive up our guns. HEHEHE, We don’t think so.
That’s for sure. Those who blindly trust government to take care of them are living in a dream world. It was discovered in Ferguson, MO that police will have their hands full defending themselves. Those sidearms they carry are for ***their own*** protection. When it comes down to our self-protection then we are on our own. I ain’t old enough to die yet.
Nobody comes into my home and threatens to do harm to my family. If they try they will leave feet first! God bless The 2nd amendment. God bless our wonderful brave police and fire departments. God Bless Donald Trump. MAGA GBA
There is no gun control, and never will be. We will not allow it. I guess our government thinks we’re brain-dead like most of them, but we’re not. We know exactly what would happen if the government could control our guns. They overtake us and make this country a communist showplace. No thank you. For generations, the people of this nation fought and died for our freedoms, and this is just one of them.
Oh yeah, the importance of the 2nd Amendment was driven home in spades. This could have been nipped in the bud if law enforcement would have shot the dirty anti-America bastards.
That is what they should of done. There is no place in this Country for lawlessness. Shoot them and it will stop!
I am afraid, except in a very few MINORITY< God has NOT NOW, nor will Bless this nation again! I do believe HE has cursed the same! PROOF: 2 Peter 2:13-14 KJV "And they shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to "RIOT" in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves w/their own deceivings while they feast w/you; having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised w/covetous practices; "cursed" children:
