Demand a Plan to End Gun Violence? Here It Is.

In the run-up to the presidential debates, gun control advocates are agitating like a Kenmore washing machine. In particular, the Mayors Against Illegal Guns are using Aurora Midnight Movie Massacre survivor Stephen Barton’s neck wounds (above) to “demand a plan.” The 30-second spot has done its job: stimulating mainstream media “debate.” But what, exactly, is their plan to “end gun violence”? The website attached to the ad doesn’t say. In fact . . .

Gun control advocates know they can’t argue to control guns per se. Aside from urban enclaves—who ignore the Supreme Court’s recent Heller and McDonald rulings banning gun bans—that dog has had its day. The antis’ current headline demand: register all gun sales, including private transactions.

Like all their other proposals (e.g. micro-stamping, magazine capacity limitations, banning “assault weapons”), registering private firearms transactions (a.k.a. “close the gun show loophole”) will do sweet FA to address “gun violence.” As cato.org reports, “According to an NIJ study released in December 1997 . . . only 2 percent of criminal guns come from gun shows.”

    The most effective way to end gun violence is to arm everybody, that way people know if you take a shot at me then there is a good chance you have return fire coming your way and nobody wants to be shot at. This way very few people would take the chance of shooting anybody.

    Pass all the laws you want but, know this, I will not give up my weapons no matter what. I have been a law abiding citizen but that will end if guns are outlawed. After that, I will be an outlaw and you will be responsible for that. If you come for me, you better get me because if you don’t, I’ll be coming for you.

    Gun registration is exceedingly effective. It will enable those seeking to take our guns on the day they get enough Supreme Court Justices appointed by a liberal (read:Democrat), to rule against the 2nd Amendment in some case or the other. Then, they will know whose homes to invade to take the guns away from law abiding citizens. And you can bet the bank these gun grabbers will act in hours once such a ruling is made. They will then never return said guns if an injunction is entered. Suddenly, all those guns will be lost & they can’t return them.
