Have You Seen “Real” Gun Control?

U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- I watched them on the news. I saw rich politicians with security details tell me to give up my money and my guns. Some politicians promoted gun control after they accepted campaign donations from rich billionaires. These people are saying one thing while they do another. These politicians, and the people who donate millions of dollars to fund gun-control, have no need to go armed. They hire people to protect them. They have their own security services, while we have to protect ourselves. They aren’t anti-gun. They are for corporate and government gun ownership, while they speak against private and personal gun ownership.

Here is what real gun-control would look like without hypocrisy, and, frankly, I haven’t real examples of gun-control. Please use the comment section to tell me if you’ve seen what I’ve missed.

  • Billionaires and rich politicians will never walk into a store and shop for groceries or Christmas presents on a rainy night. They have cooks and personal shoppers who do that for them. I bring this up because parking lots are one of the favorite places where criminals hunt for victims. Billionaires and elite politicians certainly won’t walk across a dark parking lot at night by themselves. You, on the other hand, live a different life than they do. You probably walk across a dark lot by yourself several times a week. You face risks every day that billionaires and rich politicians will never see again. You deserve the right of self-defense.
  • The billionaire may own a bank, but he doesn’t have to walk up to an ATM at night to get cash. Billionaires and rich politicians hire people to do that for them. You are the one who has to go dangerous places alone in the dark. So does your family. You deserve protection, just like the rich billionaire.
  • Billionaires and rich politicians seldom drive themselves. They hire chauffeurs and limousine services to take them where they want to go. In contrast, you walk into a gas station/convenience store at night. You watch the news and you know that isn’t safe. Who is there to protect you? Elite politicians have bodyguards with them, but for us, the police are 11 minutes away. You have the right to protect yourself.
  • We face risks every day. We are the ones working behind the counter at fast-food jobs, at convenience stores, and at small retail businesses. Most of us don’t have armed security guards at the buildings where we work. Elite politicians do. Most of us have to protect ourselves at work as well as at home.
  • We are the ones who drop off our soiled clothes at a dry cleaners after work. We cross a dark street to get to public transportation.

Our lives are different than the people who make our laws and who report our news.

Billionaires and rich politicians have armed security details to protect them. They have servants who drive them, who feed them, and who clean their clothes. Even the spokesmen for gun control have security guards.

Billionaires and rich politicians don’t need to provide for their own defense. They want corporate security while outlawing the private security that you provide for yourself and your family. They want you disarmed so that they are the only ones with guns. Unfortunately, they are willing to contribute millions of dollars to get what they want.

That kind of money buys an awful lot of politicians and votes, but I have a modest proposal.

Let him who is without a security detail cast the first vote for gun-control.

If you want me disarmed, then lead by example. If our streets are so safe, then give up your bodyguards. If you want my family disarmed, then fire your security staff at home and at work. Send your protective detail home if you’re a politician. Fire your bodyguards and personal staff if you are one of the billionaires funding the gun-control movement. Show me that the world is safe for my family.

Let your family walk alone at night the way my family does.

I haven’t seen that sort of leadership from the people who speak for gun-control. I can’t take gun-control advocates seriously until they walk the walk. Rather than hear what they say, I learn from what they do. If the world is too dangerous for the elites to be unarmed, then I want my family protected too. I want my family to defend themselves until the police arrive. Isn’t that what you want for your family and friends?

There may be an honest advocate of gun-control out there. Please leave a comment with your examples if you see one.

It’s not about them or what they do! It’s about what they want to do to us that requires us to be disarmed! This is the elephant in the room

It is also the well connected who get a carry permit in places the average person can’t.

I remember reading a quote from a former Missionary in China who lived thru MAOs purges. He said when the Communists first took power they were very friendly and urged the people to turn in their weapons. After that happened, “We came to Understand the real terror of Bolshevism!
That, my fellow travelers is what they intend to do to this country!

Those who beat their guns into plowshares will plow the fields for those who keep their guns. Same goes for those who surrender their guns.

Sounds good never happen, because we all know laws are for criminals to break.
Tired of talking it’s getting very close to to time to either Sh*% of get off the pot, or become indentured servants of corporation USA.

Michael Bloomberg, the current funder of many anti gun groups, but with personally no public office at this time. Someone needs to ask, whenever he speaks, “Why don’t you get rid of your armed security, as an example to prove that American citizens don’t need guns?”

He’s so stupid to think a security detail is keeping him safe,all of them are,NO ONE is safe.Your ticket can be punched anytime anywhere IF someone wants to do it. They would never know what hit them, and no one would know from where it came. This fact alone shows real gun owners are followers of law abiding and are moral people, Depolorable’s and lovers of GOD, and their Bibles and guns, for the sake of Liberty,until backed into a corner. If this doesn’t stop soon, I fear out of sheer survival mode it will come to that. They will… Read more »

That’s right. Safety is an illusion created by the need to demonstrate control. “The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum….”

That security detail is just a deterrent. A few prominent examples come to mind: Ronald Reagan, William McKinley, Huey Long, (U.S Senator from Louisiana), JFK (followed by Lee Harvey Oswald while under police protection), Robert F. (Bobby) Kennedy, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Benazir Bhutto…

I think the opposite, I believe he is scared to death and knows just one of the millions of guns in America could take him out and that’s why he is so hellbent on taking them away.

Rob: I was in the business of Executive Protection for years and you are exactly right. The hypocrisy is damn near overwhelming.

No one can be protected from ELR.

These PERMANENT PROFESSIONAL POLITICIANS need to show by example that guns are not needed by American Citizens. How? When THEY travel – – REFUSE to allow Police to “protect” THEM where ever THEY go. THEY must NOT have any body guards. Like ‘d.feinstein’ who stated, “I have a gun for protection”. SHE can be one of THOSE who MUST “LEAD BY EXAMPLE”. Do I believe these PERMANENT PROFESSIONAL POLITICIANS will “LEAD BY EXAMPLE”!?!?!?! No I am sure THEY will not WALK THE WALK – – – fore THEY ARE – – – HYPOCRITES!!!!!!!

Gun control advocates can “walk the walk” if they choose to, but I will not give up my guns or my freedom! I will never take them seriously!

I imagine you’re more likely to see a unicorn fart a rainbow than billionaires and politicians give up their security.

When they are flying on the Lolita Express to Epstein Island we are left here fighting for our lives in the crime infested jungle they created.

Amen, unarmed if they can manage it! Btw Harold, I will not comply (I think that may be a byline to all posts – just for the fun of it.)

Autsin, Billy had Secret Service body guards when he flew Lolita Express and Prince Andrew didn’t kill himself.

@USA Yeah, wouldn’t you love to hear from those security guys! The Secret Service seems to be a really professional group though. Even if they don’t like what’s going on, they keep their mouth shut and do their job.

As far as Prince Andrew is concerned, that doesn’t appear to be over yet. I have a feeling that is going to get quite interesting.

Autsin, They (Secret Service) have already sung like choir boys. Andrew is only the tip of the “Royal” iceberg. Those Royals along with the elite steal, rape and hunt children on private reserves and military installations around the world. Gods wrath will pursue them all into the abyss. The Storm is only getting started.

The SS cannot protect anyone either,at ELR.
Only living underground 100% of the time will ensure almost 100% chance you will live,if someone wants anyone bad enough, they have no chance..Who wants to live like that?, that’s not living,but it shows them for the Vampires they are.

Yes Rob, they have all those things and another – a different set of laws that apply to them. More appropriately stated I guess it would be the laws we all have, are applied to them differently. It is a sad state of affairs when it is just common knowledge that if you have enough money you can get away with anything, at least until that day when they can’t.
