Why Gun Control Laws Suck

Because frankly, guns saves lives while gun control costs them.

A law abiding citizen who exercises their right to keep and bear a firearm does so for the protection of themselves and others.  A criminal with malicious intent in their heart will use ANY weapon they can, ignore all laws therein, and will be creative in their want of destruction.

The recent Ottawa shooter?  He was banned from gun ownership.  So much for gun control.

A man attacked 4 Cops in Queens on Thursday with a HATCHET.  Injuring 2 with one still being in critical condition after being struck in the head.  You can buy a hatchet in any sports store or Wal-Mart.  In a twist the only innocent person injured by gunfire was a women who was struck by the police’s hail of bullets when they shot the hatchet wielding assailant.

Take a moment though…this happened in New York City.  Where the right to defend yourself is all but stripped away by City Hall.  Had the attacker not gone for cops but rather just regular citizens who are denied their rights, his hatchet wielding murder spree would have had a quickly rising body count.


Apparently it is ok for cops to be armed to defend themselves but regular New York City denizens must be slaughtered and scalped like pacifist settlers traveling through hostile indian country circa 1849, instead of being able to shoot back.

Gun Owners of America recently did a video spot where Erich Pratt recounted a number of stories where law abiding citizens NOT denied their rights were able to stop criminals from wading into a bloodbath of innocent people.

While I have always found the notion of gun control pointless and dangerous, I found it interesting that even the federal government, through research done by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention AGREE with that fact.

Yet the statistics that the CDC has discovered have even surprised me.  The CDC estimates that there are from 500,000 to 3 MILLION cases of lawful self defense via firearm each year in this country.  Why don’t we hear about them more often?  Because the media by and large ignores these stories of triumph and sweeps them under the rug as it goes against their narrative.

Going against his narrative is also the reason that Barack Obama chooses to ignore his own instigated CDC investigation and still seeks out ways to deny the 2nd Amendment rights to Americans; be it by legislation attempts, executive orders or via international treaty.

All in all gun control sucks, not only because is it ineffective, for lots of things are ineffective yet do no harm.  No, gun control laws suck because it actively DOES harm.  It denies the law abiding the chance to defend themselves yet does nothing to stop criminals from harming anyone.  In fact, it empowers them.

Here’s the funny thing.  If the rationale behind gun control actually worked, you wouldn’t need gun control.  You’d only have to pass a law prohibiting murder, rape and robbery.  Since gun control hinges on criminals willingly adhering to the law, if it worked, you wouldn’t need that law in the first place.

It’s one of those logic catch 22’s that, when posed to gun controllers, make their heads explode and then they spit out all manner of vitriol and nonsensical jibberish.  Kind of fun to watch actually.

In short, gun control sucks because the only thing it controls is ensuring that victims are available for bad men to do evil.

To paraphrase Edmund Burke if “Evil exists when good men do nothing” what is gun control when it exists to deny the ability for good men to do anything?

Yeah…gun control sucks.
