Another entry in defining the left.
Democrats this week:
– Voted FOR stripping gun rights from law-abiding citizens
– Voted AGAINST requiring ICE to be notified if an illegal immigrant tries to buy a gun
As I’ve mentioned before, they constantly do things that don’t seem to make sense, but make perfect sense when you understand their goal is to destabilize society, engender fear and force the general public into dependency.
Their gun law proposals aren’t about reducing crime. They CLAIM that gun control is about reducing crime, but that’s a lie. If they were really about reducing crime would they also support releasing convicted criminals early? Reduced or eliminated bail? Wouldn’t they be more up in arms about the 40% reduction in prosecution for violation of existing gun laws that happened under Obama?
No, gun laws are not a method of reducing crime…criminals ignore those laws and are not punished for it…they are a method of controlling the law abiding. Of preventing law abiding citizens from the ability to defend themselves and their families both against criminals and against a criminal government.
Why? Because citizens who are secure, capable and equipped to defend themselves are self-reliant and confident. They don’t need the government to take care of them. They aren’t dependent. The left NEEDS people to be dependent on the government; that’s how they exercise control. So, make them insecure and dependent: take away their ability to defend themselves. Encourage violent criminals to continue terrorizing their communities. Keep the criminals out of jail and on the streets where they can do the most harm. Prevent the deportation of illegal aliens who are gang members and criminals.
There are symptoms of this in other areas of life as well, but the place that I think it’s the most stark is their blatant and seemingly contradictory stances regarding lenient treatment of criminals while simultaneously eliminating the right of citizens to defend themselves against those criminals.
As I said, it only seems contradictory when you don’t understand what the left is about.
Gun control is not about crime. It’s not even about guns. It’s about control.
