U.S.A. – -(AmmoLand.com)- There’s no such thing as “gun violence.” “Gun violence” doesn’t exist. What the gun-grabbers are talking about when they use the term “gun violence” is really “human violence.” But they don’t want to talk about human violence because if they did, they would be forced to address all the policies that lead to violence in our country.
“Violence” is a behavior. Behavior can only be acted out by a human or an animal. Not a gun. This is why you’ll never hear the gun-grabbers call it “gun behavior.” “Gun behavior” would be a term that even the most politically driven and irrational anti-gunners would reject due to its pure absurdity. By attaching the word “violence” to the word “gun,” it allows for the visualization of a gun acting in a violent manner while eliminating human accountability from the equation. Somehow, when they can pretend that violence comes from a gun, they can continue with their political fantasy and remain ignorant to the fact that a person has to actually pull the trigger.
If the political left were to talk about “human violence,” the topics of gang violence, sanctuary cities, open borders, gun-free zones, bail reform, and welfare dependency would come into play. Of course, they don’t want those things to be the topic of discussion because those are the things that hurt our society. Those are also policies that they support. Plus, they want to demonize guns so what better way to cover up their failures and nefarious legislation while simultaneously attacking the 2nd Amendment, than to create a fake term like “gun violence?” It’s perfect. It takes all the responsibility and places it on guns. It also gives the anti-gun types a dream to hold on to.
One example of a horrible policy created for political purposes is the idea that we should be letting prisoners out of jail early. The Democrat appointee, Governor in New York State, recently released 191 inmates from Rikers Island, yet wants to implement more gun laws that would prevent law-abiding citizens from being able to protect themselves and their families against the very criminals Kathy Hochul put back on the streets. How does this make any sense? Why would someone want to release potentially violent people into the community while simultaneously disarming the community? Do we think these politicians don’t understand the ramifications of their decisions?
Logical thinking people would say it doesn’t make any sense and it almost looks like good people will have to deal with more crime due to limited prison employees. To left-wing politicians, it makes perfect sense because creating chaos and putting good people in danger creates more dependency. The victim/predator model produces “fear-votes” for the politicians who promise “safety.” It also allows justification for more unconstitutional mandates, laws, and policing strategies under the guise of “public emergency.”
When people are dependent and feel unsafe they are more likely to turn to Government for protection or simply shut up and do what they are told. An empowered citizenry is the worst thing a corrupt politician could ever know. These dangerous policies also help these politicians look good to their die-hard “woke” supporters and let’s not forget, that’s the stuff that leads to votes. The ironic thing in cities like New York, is that the endangered people continue to vote for the politicians who put them in danger. Will they ever learn or are their politics higher on their scale of values than the quality of life? It would seem the fear-driven crowd will continue to beg their political Gods for a safe environment while voting for the very policies that create the unsafe environment they fear. Some people are easy to manipulate, and fear is the best motivator. The term “Gun-Violence” gives them the boogeyman they always wanted.
Knowing that guns are used defensively over 2 million times per year in America, why is it that the term “gun-benevolence” is nowhere to be found in the vocabulary of the anti-gun crowd when lives are saved?
The 2nd Amendment is not a privilege. It’s your right.
