A Compulsion to Disarm: The History of Grabby Governments Since 1026 BC

In the wake of the 2018 mid-term elections, so-called “gun control” is back in the news. Even though the murder rate in the United States is declining and at a 33-year low, the mass media’s much-heralded “threat of gun violence” has politicians in a frenzy much like those seen in 1968 and 1994. Gun control laws and decrees should be called out for what they really are: Systematic Civilian Disarmament. In Western nations, most such legislation usually starts small, progressing from registration to wholesale confiscation. First one category of weapons is banned, and then another. Gradually, these draconian laws can ramp up to the point where most citizens can’t even possess air rifles and crossbows. To understand the origins of these laws, we need to examine both some psychology and some history.

    I just read this bit of news:


    And this was included in the story:

    “I’m not saying it would happen overnight, but it would embolden criminals.”

    So taking people’s guns away would embolden criminals. Who knew? It would also embolden scum bag politicians (criminals) which of course is the actual reason for gun control.

    I don’t think our fine betters will be happy with the results, which is a feature, not a bug.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
