Gun Control: The Right Argument?Submitted by dailypauler on Sat, 12/29/2012 - 17:11
Providing people with sound knowledge and history of gun control in order to win over the hearts and minds.
Many gun-rights activists may wish or feel that it may be better to avoid this topic. However, being that the media has made THIS the issue, we are forced to deal with it and for that reason, I believe this argument should be countered head-on. When reading this, keep in mind that most people do not know the history of the results of gun-confiscation, all's they know is what they hear on TV.
Thus, as of now, our battle is for "the hearts and minds" and the battle can only be won when peoples minds hold enough information on both sides of the argument for making sound decisions. And as of this moment, most people "lack knowledge" HERE for proper judgement.
That said, I feel if this argument is countered properly the resulting outcome is synonymous to turning lemons into lemonade.
Read on and you'll see.
As of today the central point of the gun control argument hindges on "mass killings" and how to reduce them. As of now it is focused on 20 children dead.
If this be the case, then the message most anti-gunners need to hear more than any other is, "What does history teach us about gun control?"
To be more specific, what does history teach us about "HOW MANY men, women and children END UP DEAD as a direct result of the enactment of gun control?"
Although it is impossible to get exact numbers due to so many variables, from what we do know in the last century alone HUNDREDS of MILLIONS DIED as a direct result of gun regulation enactments. Gun control was the "trigger point" that enabled governments to go rogue, turnning on they're own people and wars to start. From there sprouted, famin, diesase, job loss and plunder adding into the equation.
So in conclusion, I'd like to say to the gun control crowd, "Becareful for what you wish for, for YOU might end up with the BLOOD of FAR more than 20 dead children on your own head."
THOSE WHO FAIL TO LEARN FROM HISTORY PAST, ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT.
