The Socialist Left cares more about gun confiscation than any common sense ideas that will really protect kids.
Once again, we are witness to the nation’s Socialist-Left blithely
assuming the unearned mantle of moral superiority because they
supposedly care for ‘the children’. Allegedly ‘objective’
journalists are falling all over themselves to promote a nascent
campaign to destroy our common sense civil rights to the exclusion of
steps that will really ‘Do Something’.
It is not without a hint of irony that the nation’s Socialist-Left
does not care about children before they are born. But soon after they
become a precious commodity that must be protected at all costs– including everyone’s fundamental human rights.
Those who are merely a cluster of cells or some other humanity denying
pejorative in the womb, suddenly become children to be exploited for
political gain upon their full emergence into the world.
Gun Control Doesn’t Work – If it did, Chicago would be the safest city in the nation.
Before the nation’s Socialist-Left is celebrated by the world with the laurels protector of children par excellence, shouldn’t we check their alleged solutions as to whether they work? For
if gun control doesn’t work, then they are merely setting up next the
mass murder tragedy, and for another round of attacks on our civil
Examine their much ballyhooed utterances over the past few days: The national socialist left is promising a little temporary safety exchange for a mere pittance of our essential liberty.
Of course, if they are pressed on the point, they will respond with
some sort of meaningless boilerplate about cutting down the carnage.
Even so, such vague promises are hardly worth the loss of liberty it
So what are we getting for the low-low cost of our
freedom? How do their ‘solutions’ fair in the real world? Do they
actually protect people? Or do they make the situation worse – far
Well, we already know that very much like it’s tyrannical half-sister socialism,Gun control doesn’t work.
Just ask the good people of Chicago or Caracas whether or not depriving
the innocent of their means of self-defence will protect them.
Parenthetically speaking, if gun control actually worked in some
mythical Utopia, we would be hearing it about 24/7. This fantasy world
doesn’t exist, but there are other steps that can be taken to save at
least one life – and isn’t that the standard by which such things are
Commonsense steps that will really protect children and their Civil Rights.
There have been plenty of suggested initiatives that will help reduce
these terrorist attacks, from containing the contagion by reducing the
killer’s media profile to providing better security. Not to mention
restoring basic discipline and a moral underpinning to our children, or
simply letting people defend themselves getting rid of the insanity of
so-called “Gun Free” zones.
But instead of discussing steps that will actually work, the Socialist-Left ridiculesthem. Or they insanely advocate we go further in removing God from the public square or decree them to be a redirection from their real obsession.
To be perfectly blunt about it: The most disgusting aspect of
this whole cycle is that it won’t do a thing to protect children and we
will be back here doing the very same thing in a few weeks or months.
That is what is sickening about this whole affair, and just crediting
the Socialist-Left with just a modicum of basic intelligence will show
that they know this as well.
To the nation’s Socialist-Left, getting to their ultimate
goal gun confiscation is far more important than the lives of children
they supposedly want to protect. They care more about depriving people of the means to resist [how’s that for a word?]
to their Marxist tyranny than everyone’s safety, and they are willing
to climb over the bodies of children to get there. If the nation’s
Socialist-Left really cared about protecting children they would
advocate what works instead of what brings them power.
