The headline out of Chicago this morning is sadly predictable.
While Baltimore captured media attention for the suspicious death of Freddy Gray, Gray’s peers continued doing what they do best.
A opinion piece out of New York offers an attempt to find a cure.
Indeed, the mainstream media in major cities and their equally compromised allies in the field of public health and the like-minded politicians they have rallied around continue to push the abject fiction of “gun violence,” as if the argument has any logical merit whatsoever.
The very concept of “object violence” is, of course, absurd on its face.
When someone is intentionally run over with a car, we do not attack the automobile industry for the vehicle’s misuse, nor do we attempt to then constrict the ability of other drivers to buy and drive that model of car.
When someone is intentionally beaten with a bat, we do not call out the manufacturer of that bat, nor the larger baseball industry, and insist that they are culpable for the misuse of that product.
Do we really need to go down a list of further examples? I don’t see that we do. I think you understand the idiocy of their argument against reason.
These totalitarian control freaks—which is what they are, if we may be honest—are attempting to turn a criminal violence issue into an object violence issue.
They seek to blame objects used by more than 100 million Americans for sport, sustenance, and personal protection billions of times each year (based on ammunition consumption) because if they successfully press their argument, they can twist the actions of the criminal few to disarm the law-abiding masses.
This totalitarian desire to disarm the good and decent people of the United States before a federal government that grows more corrupt and lawless every day should strike fear into the hearts of decent people, and for very good reasons.
Time and again throughout history, the disarmament of a people has led to tyranny, then the government-led genocide of unfavored populations. This murder by government is called Democide.
It may seem like a giant leap from the false promises of peace through disarmament to democide, but history does not lie.
262 million souls were summarily murdered by their own governments in the 20th Century. Typically, their “crimes” were nothing more than being the wrong race, the wrong ethnic group, the wrong ideological persuasion, a member of the wrong political party, having the wrong friends or family members, or simply being in the wrong place, at the wrong time when the purge began.
It would be nice to pretend that people have evolved in the span of the few years since that murderous, democide-filled 20th century, but we know that to be a lie as well. The very same people Mr. Grathwohl warned us about in the video above are the ideological parents of our sitting President, his Rasputin, Valerie Jarrett, and the other radical supporters of the concept of a all-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful federal government, one far unlike that our Founders intended.
“Gun Violence” isn’t a threat to the long-term health of the citizens of the United States.
It is the ideology pushing the idea of “gun violence” that is a malignancy in our body politic that would destroy this nation from within.
Founding Father Patrick Henry warned us long ago.
“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”
Those who have failed to heed that warning lie mouldering in mass graves around the world.
Do not let that same fate befall us.
Do not buy into the “gun violence” lie that would turn a well-armed citizenry into mere subjects.
