Delusions of the radical left: Prohibition doesn't work for alcohol or marijuana, but it will somehow work for guns

Delusions of the radical left: Prohibition doesn't work for alcohol or marijuana, but it will somehow work for guns

NaturalNews) If only I could lobotomize myself with a large vehicle battery, a bottle of Jack Daniels and a pair of heavy duty jumper cables, I might be able to cognitively function at the same convoluted level as the radical left. Over the last decade or so, the radical left has reminded us again and again that prohibition doesn't work for marijuana -- nor for alcohol -- and they celebrated the decriminalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington.

But these same people now insist that firearms prohibition will somehow, magically, see the end of violent crime in America. Gun prohibition will be highly effective, they say to each other. So let's ban the guns!

But hold on a second. Before taking such sweeping actions, would it make sense to first ask the commonsense question: Can gun prohibition even work? What are the likely consequences of any attempt to prohibit private firearms ownership?

It will bring forth increased sales through black markets

People will begin to make rudimentary firearms at home so they can protect themselves and feed their families.

Firearm deaths will rise because buying from the black market is unsafe.

ALL of the issues we've seen with prohibiting anything will come about in their own way with guns.

You will NOT be able to stop the flood of guns no more than you can drugs over the border and it will give even more power and incentive to the criminal element to invade more of our cities and towns.

This isn't even addressing the issue of disarming the population and all that will cause as we're pitted against our own government...because a lack of guns means a lack of even more rights and a repeat of history's worst lessons.

If they ban guns, we have to sacrifice ourselves if necessary.. expecting a corrupt government that implemented a ban in the first place to rescind it is dangerous pie-in-the-sky bullshit.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Prohibition ALWAYS works

It creates a highly profitable black market and foments gangs and a fearful society. And who has long held a cornered the market on gun running?
Which part of that looks like "failure?"

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
