Anti-Gun Hypocrisy Only Proves I Really Do Need a Gun

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Does the hypocrisy of the Anti-Gun crowd make you wonder if they're actually capable of rational thought? For example, have you ever heard them say, “Nobody needs an AR-15,” or “Nobody needs a gun in their home,” or “Nobody needs to carry a gun in public.”

The implication is that if you don't “need” a gun, you shouldn't have one.

As if they were the ones to grant you your God-given right, based on “their” interpretation of need. The Anti-Gunners say these things to sway public opinion and make gun-ownership look unreasonable. But let's look at some numbers and talk about the “need” to own a gun. Now we all know that the Founders didn't call the Constitutional Amendments, the “Bill of Needs” and although we know that gun-ownership is our right, there may be a significant argument to be made for the need to carry a gun. In our home, at the grocery store or anywhere else for that matter.

According to a study by Gary Kleck with confirming data from the CDC, there are approximately 2.5 million defensive gun uses in America every year. That means 2.5 million lives saved because people had guns in their possession when they were attacked. 46% of those were women. That doesn't necessarily mean Good Guys killing Bad Guys. It most often meant the mere presence of a gun deterred an attacker. In other words,

“The attacker knew his potential victim had a gun, and chose not to attack.”

There are just over 300 million people in America (326,000,000 in 2017). There are just over 1 million successful violent crimes in America per year (1,248,580 in 2017 / FBI data). 300 million people|1 million attacks. That's a 1 in 300 chance that you'll be the victim of one of those attacks. I don't know about you, but I don't like those odds. The Anti-Gunners will tell you, it'll never happen to them, yet many of these same people will buy lottery tickets with a 1 in 20 million chance of winning because “You gotta be in it to win it.” There's the hypocrisy.

Twice as many violent attacks are prevented than carried out, because the victim had a gun.

  • What would the result be if more people were denied their right to carry a gun?
  • What would the result be if more people exercised their right to carry?

Many of these Anti-Gunners will tell you that their odds of being attacked are far less likely because they don't live in the bad part of town, yet they govern those parts of town through the politicians they vote for. The thing the Anti-Gunners ignore is, if their odds of being the victim in a violent attack go down, someone else's odds have to go up because the number of people didn't change and the number of yearly attacks didn't change. They'll tell you that we need more gun-restrictions while watching innocent people die in high crime areas and gun-free zones.

There's more of their hypocrisy.

Rather than admit to the world that gun-ownership is a right and also a need, the gun-grabbers pretend they have no blood on their hands while using the death-toll numbers from high crime areas to push for more gun-control. They stand on the graves of those they have put in harm's way and they use anti-gun propaganda to fool people who aren't paying attention, into believing that they care. Human-violence in America is not an argument for more gun-restrictions, it's an argument for more armed-preparedness and firearms training.

The 2ndAmendment is not a privilege. It's your right.

If you really want to talk about hypocrisy…think of this. All of the anti gunners think that only the military and police should have guns. If they have something happen where they need protection, what do they do? THEY CALL SOMEONE WITH GUN to protect them and to me that is saying that THEIR lives are worth MORE then the police or military. That the police should be willing to sacrifice their lives to protect THEM. What a JOKE. They are so IRRESPONSIBLE because they refuse to protect themselves and family and expect someone ELSE to do it for them.

You will never convince them that gun ownership is a right because they have their eye on a bigger prize. We all know their ultimate goal is to take our arms so they can play king over us.

You are exactly right “TC” on the bottom line. But, they know gun ownership IS our right, that’s what they’re afraid of!

Seems to me they are already playing king and the armed slaves are waking up to the FACT and are starting to get PISSED.

The liberals are trained to ignore their lies because with them, it’s the ends that justify their means. This is where we keep going wrong. If you constantly attack their lies, then it’s for sure that you’re taking the long way home, and may in fact never get there. Attack instead, the individual as morally corrupt — PROVE THAT and NOT THEIR HYPOCRISY — and you immediately nullify anything they have to say. Don’t tell me a good story, instead show me one, and I’ll show you a best seller every time. If a picture paints a thousand words, then… Read more »

Dan has made an error in the article that more than a few 2nd Amendment supporters make: The Lott/ Kleck/CDC/et al studies do not point to 2.5 million lives saved. The number is 2.5 million DGU’s which includes lives saved, injuries prevented and property saved, among other things. We do not need to lower ourselves to the gun prohibitionists’ level of misrepresenting the data, to show the benefits of owning and bearing arms. The real numbers that need to be compared are the DGU’s vs criminal misuse of guns. Or lives saved vs murders with a gun. Or injuries prevented… Read more »

I often wonder if these people are unable to comprehend or unwilling to comprehend. Regardless, dictating to others what a person needs or doesn’t is really the crux of everything socialist. Now put these people in public office and observe the taking of your rights based on what they believe. When a politician or bureaucrat tells you that you need or don’t need something, it’s a clear sign you’ve got a liberal ruling instead of representing. No one likes hipocracy but we continue to mass produce them at every level of government. I live in California where someone is always… Read more »

The real clincher is that they feel their lives are SOOOOO much more valuable then a police officer that they won’t take the responsibility of protecting themselves but are willing to call SOMEONE ELSE that has a GUN to do it for them. That reality about them turns my stomach. They just don’t see it.

A moral Democrat is an oxymoron and liberals who believe and follow Democrats are just plain morons.

You could literally bury gun control zealots in statistics proving the value of firearm ownership, but as soon as they dig themselves out of the pile they would continue the gun control rant. Thanks, MSM and millionaire donors for terrorizing the population with false reporting and foolish agendas..

Now, if we can just get the unschooled Marxists to understand this and the 2A. Then again they like only the statistics that they can manipulate, omit and lie about to their communist beliefs.
