Obama thinks Govt's legal monopoly on violence should add legal monopoly on AK-47's too.Submitted by go213mph on Thu, 07/26/2012 - 07:28
Obama has stated before that what essentially sets a Nation State apart is a "Monopoly on Violence". (See 30 sec clip below)
Delivering a speech last night in New Orleans Obama said:
"But I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals. That they belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities."
What he is saying is that the almightly STATE, that is responsible for killing AT LEAST 1 million people over the past 10 years, needs to make their job a little easier by outlawing the possesion of AK-47's by anyone OTHER than The State.
Do you see how a$$ backwards that is? Logic would indicate that if you are going to ban weapons from a group of people it should be the group that has murdered a million+ people in the last decade...NOT from the group of who would like to protect themselves from the unrestrained power of The State.
And you know about the slipperly slop. First it's AK-47's and the next thing you know...The State will say hunters need to challenge themselves more and only use BB guns to hunt.
DO THE RESEARCH! EVERY Country in history that has systematically disarmed their citizens has ended up slaughtering them in masses.
250 MILLION + innocent civilans have been murdered by Governments around the world in the last 100 years. That's practically the entire population of the whole USA. I'd rather take my chances of fighting off a "criminal" with an AK-47 in my hand than to end up in a big ditch looking up at a UN/NATO soilder fixing to unload on me with a gun that I was banned from owning "for my own protection".
