Why does the left keep aiming at our guns?

By Doug Book, editor

In 1996, Washington Post reporter and FOX News’ faux-conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer wrote “…the [Clinton Administration’s] assault weapons ban will have no significant effect either on the crime rate or on personal security.  Nonetheless, it is a good idea . . . .  Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation.”

Of course, Krauthammer soon learned that the American people cannot be “desensitized” to the left’s arrogant enterprises of would-be gun theft.  On the contrary, recent in-your-face efforts by gun control zealots to force gun owners into 2nd Amendment defeatism have inevitably resulted in defiance, not submission.  The unparalleled explosion in gun sales upon the installation of Barack Hussein in the White House, the absolute refusal to appease the left after New Town and the unexpected appearance of armed freedom fighters at the Bundy ranch; all have served to give provide the nation’s Krauthammers with a real education.

And today the left is faced with what may be its greatest fear—a serious, firearm owning public which has drawn a line in the sand that a gun grabbing government is not permitted to cross.

But why did the government choose this fight? Why did a battle over 2nd Amendment guarantees take on the seeming appearance of life and death to the American left? Was the Democrat Party somehow convinced disarming the American people would be an easy win? Did Chuck Schumer and Diane Feinstein really believe a coupling of the left’s laughable “nobody wants to take your gun” mantra with a professed “common sense” approach to gun control had actually fooled the nation’s gun owners?

Anyone who believes liberal claims of heartbreak over 19,000 annual firearm suicides or even the yearly average of about 250 youngsters accidently killed by mishandled guns must first ask how the left can abhor these numbers yet celebrate some 1 million annual abortions.

In 2010, the FBI reported 8,874 firearm homicides in the United States. In 2011, the number was 8,583. Of these homicides, as many as half—and depending upon location, sometimes far more—are committed by gang members. As of 2011 there were some 1.4 million active gang members in the United States comprising 33,000 different gangs. The FBI determined gangs to be responsible for “…an average of 48 percent of violent crime in most jurisdictions and up to 90 percent in several others.” This means the American left has spent decades doing everything in its power to trample the Constitution and disarm the American public, all for the prevention of some 4,300 deaths.

Does anyone really believe that Democrats and other dedicated gun grabbers can get all broken up over 4,300 shootings?

The left will soon be victims of their own political scheming and corruption

by Suzanne Eovaldi

Countless conspiracy theories have been advanced after the grisly and senseless murders at Sandy Hook. From dead children ostensibly filmed alive days after the shootings and mourning fathers inexplicably laughing before news cameras, to the incredible claim that “…the whole event was staged and never actually took place,” the American public has been assailed by any number of loons with a personal or group axe to grind. (1)

It was James Tracy, a communications professor at Florida Atlantic University who claimed in early January that ” ‘…crisis actors’ may have been employed by the Obama administration in an effort to shape public opinion in favor of the event’s true purpose: gun control.” (2)  Were any American president   capable of arranging the death of children—real or imagined–in order to advance a favored agenda it would be Barack Obama. But not even an individual imbued with this president’s total lack of class and honor would attempt a scam so easily unraveled!

But the Sandy Hook killings did bring to light two truths which the American public AND the federal government must take very seriously.

In the first instance, “all over the United States school children are being taken out of their classrooms, put on buses and sent to ‘alternate locations’ during terror drills.  These exercises are often called “evacuation drills” or “relocation drills” and they are more than a little disturbing.”  (3)

Often mandated at the state level by “…politicians [who] have become obsessed with ‘school safety’…” or the advancement of pet agendas, one public school in Muskegon County, Michigan told student and teachers they were under attack by “…a fictitious radical group called Wackos Against Schools and Education who believe everyone should be homeschooled.” “Under the scenario, a bomb is placed on a bus and is detonated while the bus is traveling…causing the bus to land on its side and fill with smoke.” (3)

Not to be outdone, a leftist-run school in New Jersey told students they were under attack by a group of “fundamentalist Christians,” called “The New Crusaders!” Naturally, this band of pro-Muslim “educators” mentioned NOTHING to students about the thousands of KNOWN terror attacks committed in the name of Islam.

“There will be an insurrection,” Charles Krauthammer told Fox audiences on 12-9-2012, “…should [the government] be willing to confiscate [guns]…” (4) Sandy Hook was not manufactured by the Obama Regime, but its effect was certainly used by the left to press for draconian gun control legislation, featuring an “assault weapons” ban written by Diane Feinstein which would literally make it a federal crime to possess most of the weapons currently owned by the America public. (5)

The government has both authored attempts to indoctrinate–indeed brainwash–America’s children as to the value of the liberal agenda and worked to demean those who honor the right to keep and bear arms. Sooner or later such arrogant attempts to meddle with or eradicate the inalienable rights of the American public will result in a revolt–an insurrection according to Krauthammer—from which the far left will not recover. And thousands of nanny-state and power hungry politicians will forfeit far more than their offices when the American people finally say enough!
