What Would Make You Rethink Gun Control?
Kevin Felts 10.05.17
Gun-grabbing liberals never let a tragedy go to waste. They know the best time to ram gun control bills through congress is when emotions are high. There is an old saying: “Logic is the true enemy of emotion.” Rather than taking time to gather information and look at the situation in a logical manner, anti-gunners prey on the emotions of the unknowing.
In the wake of the Las Vegas shootings, various news organizations are using assertive wording in their articles. Such as, “We have to address gun control.” Or, “The time for gun control is long overdue.” The people who write such articles are attempting to convince readers that we, as a nation, need to address gun control.
Let’s play a game of Advocatus Diaboli (Devil’s Advocate).
What would it take for you, the reader, to consider passing more gun control laws?
As gun owners, we all know the restrictions already put on us. No other civil right is as restricted as the right to keep and bear arms.
The Second Amendment states:
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Even though the right to keep and bear arms is not to be infringed, the government has taken it upon themselves to infringe upon our rights at every turn.
My apologies for the rant. Let’s get back to playing Advocatus Diaboli.
What would it take for you, the reader, to consider allowing congress to pass more gun control?
Gun control advocates are using the buzz words, “Common-sense solutions to gun control.” The problem is, nobody is describing exactly what that term means. The honest truth is, do gun control advocates know what they want, or they just repeating what others say?
As for myself, there is nothing that would make me consider more gun control.
The right to keep and bear arms should be treated as important as:
- The right to trial by jury
- The right to vote.
- The right to remain silent
- Freedom of religion
- Protection against involuntary servitude (no forced slavery)
Do you have to go through a background check to attend church? No.
Must a citizen request permission to have a trial by jury? No.
Do Americans have to pay a fee to vote or to have a trial by jury? No. But you do have to pay a fee for concealed carry permit/license, etc.
There is nothing that will cause me to accept more gun control. We already have more than enough gun laws on the books, enough is enough.
What about you?
