Reasonable Means Giving Away

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

*Editor’s Note* – I have placed a teaser and a link to an article found published in the Outdoorwire discussing guns, violence, and the Second Amendment. The article as a whole is mostly a reasonable presentation of historic quotes from recognizable historical figures.

The author points out that all people are good and they all just want the violence to end. Perhaps that is sort of true but it is my contention that the majority of these people really don’t want the violence to end because they are part of the promulgation of violence in our society…but they don’t know it or are not willing to admit it. They are in love with the lifestyles they have chosen, which includes violence among other things.

The quotes given in this article are fine. Some can even be perceived as outstanding. But with all good quotes, there’s one reality that is most often overlooked. While Jefferson, Adams, Mason, and Franklin had great things to say in support of the Second Amendment or a person’s right to self-defense by owning a gun, I doubt that everyone living at that time agreed with their perspective on guns and gun ownership. As a result, from that point forward there has always been those wishing to mitigate the inalienable right into something more closely resembling a government granted privilege.

The cry goes out always for “something to be done” and/or that it only makes sense that there be placed “reasonable” restrictions on that right. The words of the Second Amendment have never been altered and in contradiction, over the years, the government has seen fit to do “what is necessary and proper” to take the inalienable right from the people. And this we have brainwashed to believe is needed in order to “do something” while placing reasonable limitations on an inalienable right which history has proven not to stop any of the intended actions of gun violence but instead has provided a landscape in which it is far easier to access “gun free zones” and kill at will.

The author of the piece linked to below does reveal that impossible-to-lose brainwashing, intimating the need for both sides to come together to find a way to end the violence. If this author and the many hundreds I have read before and will read after, actually believe the talking points used to construct their words, then why should we then seek to be “reasonable” and give away that which we KNOW will only make things worse? This makes no sense! This is insanity!

While the author makes an attempt to address the real issue of why any person is of the mindset to pick up any weapon and kill anyone, I question whether they actually believe any of what they have written.

The author writes: “We demonize the opposition with no attempt to understand each other’s perspective and motivation.  Is it any wonder we are no closer to figuring out a solution?”

The so-called demonization of the “opposition” is a programmed event. The Global Power Structure has ensured that there will always be “opposition” to every facet of our lives, regardless of our actual convictions.

The problem with attempting to “understand each other’s perspective and motivation” is twofold. First, the other’s perspective isn’t their own. It has been crammed down their throats along with a blind acceptance of it. In trying to understand where the “other side” is coming from, it is impossible because those truly in control make sure that the real issue is never addressed and the battle rages on between the false dichotomies of two parties or two political convictions – worthless existences. It’s far easier to go to war and fight for fake political reasons than to address the terrible, progressive lifestyles that have brought us to a point of killing for no reason…among other worthless values.

Second, the author brings up motivation. How are we expected to understand another’s motivation when we fail to recognize the perspective for which one has chosen to take up the battle sword and fight?

All that is ever discussed is that guns kill and one side wants to ban the guns and the other side wants to preserve the right to own a gun. With no honest discussions ever taking the stand of any real issues, then all that is left is to argue for naught.

When the author laments of not finding a solution, I cannot help but remind readers of that tried and true Hegelian Dialectic. The Hegelian Dialectic creates a crisis, embellishes that crisis and then rushes in with THEIR solution. Refusing to understand the forces at work guarantees the “solution” will always be that of the Global Power Structure.

It is a mental deficiency to believe that banning a gun will stop the killing as much as believing giving everyone a gun will. Killing is a symptom of life’s wrong track. A gun is a machine. Our world is satiated with machines and chemicals capable of mass destruction. How we choose to use those machines is nothing more than the shadow being cast from the society in which we live. That is the issue that needs addressing, not the gun.

As hard as men might try, they will never end the violence until the ship is righted and the focus of life is the Creator and not the creations.

I will leave readers, once again, with the following bit of Scripture: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness, which are in the high places.” Ephesians 6:12

The majority of people on the anti-gun side are not unreasonable.  They do not want to take our guns for fun or spite. They are good people who only want the violence to stop.  To their way of thinking, removing guns from society is the simplest way to achieve that end.  But neither the problems we face nor their solutions are simple.  Today’s public debate barely mentions the causation for a generation of mass murderers.  In addition to a mental health screening system that is clearly failing, discipline, family values, and personal responsibility are lacking in many households today.  The desensitization to human suffering and death promulgated by Hollywood and the video game industry are also issues we must address as a society in order to slow and eventually put an end to this epidemic of violence.  But that discussion is not likely to happen.  Not when liberal leaders pushing for more governmental control know it is much more effective to juxtapose dead children with an AR 15 and spent cases. <<<Read More>>>
