This is why the left blames guns

As a rational thinker, it’s always been incredibly difficult for me to understand why the liberal left is so eager to blame guns every time some psycho goes on a shooting spree. There seems to be such a disconnect in logic – blaming an inanimate object for a crime clearly committed by a living, thinking human being.

People have been killing other people since the beginning of time, and modern firearms just came onto the scene a few hundred years ago. The issue is infinitely more complex than “banning guns.” I wish it were that easy, but the solution to reducing violence is so much deeper than simply taking away the things people use to kill others. That’s ridiculous.

But it’s not just this argument that I can’t follow. I have trouble understanding most of the arguments that come from the liberal left. I finally figured out why. The general principles of the liberal left agenda exist in the absence of personal responsibility. They simply will not and cannot admit that people are responsible for their own actions. If they do, the agenda begins to crumble. The entire foundation rests on completely ignoring personal responsibility and the consequences of one’s own choices.

    The blog said, “The entire foundation rests on completely ignoring personal responsibility and the consequences of one’s own choices.”
    Well, if you look at all human behavior, including so-called ‘conservatives’ you will find this common thread in all of mankind. It’s the reason we have such things as “health insurance” and “car insurance”, and laws against “texting and driving”. If an individual were to be held responsible for his or her own car crash, there wouldn’t be a pile of cash for lawers to sue, and the society is much more comfortable with ‘spreading the misery’ around by forcing all of society to pay for the crashes with ‘insurance’. The same is true of ‘education’, as most so-called conservatives will argue in favor of public schools, and a public retirement system like ‘social security’. I even hear conservatives (so-called), argue for “saving medicare”, which is just another way for a group of the society to “spread” the ill around. The entire society is riddled with this notion, not just liberals. Find me one man that wants to live totally free, without any of this crap, and it will be a miracle.

      Well said !
      To convince people they are not responsible for what they do is a GREAT trick by Collectivists.

  • Robert Anderson

    I think you missed the point. An individual is responsible for their driving and for their medical expenses, that’s why responsible people pay for and buy insurance. I have to have uninsured motorist to pay for my car when the individuals that he is talking about. And it has to be required by law or there would be a lot more of them running around

    Its that and much more. If you notice liberals are not consistent in their beliefs. Simply put most conservatives if put all together for a diner would get along for the most part. Rand could sit next to Newt with out a fight. However, if you start putting groups in the liberals together you will have a out and out fight. For example muslims and homosexuals would kill each other using the eating utensils. Or how about Soros and Schumer??? One want to keep the money in his family after he dies and the other wants to take it before the body is cold.

    The main reason is that the Anglo/European cultural heritage of the United States has been vilified in every aspect, i.e., whites oppress minorities mantra taught in public schools, with minority cultures presented in all respects as Nirvana and the hope for all mankind if we just abandon the tired traditions of this nation. In other words, failed cultures foisting their abandoned starving diseased citizens onto our shores must be the ideal future for our nation. The United States must be slowed to permit third world nations to achieve equally with us so that their self esteem is not adversely affected.

    The reason they blame guns is that their ultimate goal is to completely ban them.
    ****
    Here is a direct quote from Sarah Brady of Handgun Control:
    “We must get rid of all the guns.”
    – Sarah Brady, on the Phil Donahue Show, September 1994
    Here are a few more:
    1. “Banning guns is an idea whose time has come.”
    – Sen. Joseph Biden, Associated Press, November 18, 1993
    2. “Banning guns addresses a fundamental right of all Americans to feel safe.”
    –Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Associated Press, November 18, 1993
    3. “We’re going to hammer guns on the anvil of relentless legislative strategy! We’re going to beat guns into submission!”
    – Sen. Charles Schumer, NBC Nightly News, November 30, 1993
    Erick Holder 1995 speech:
    “What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that’s not cool, that it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes.”
    “…Every day some kind of anti-violence, anti-gun message, every day at every school at every level”…
    “…We need to do this every day of the week and just really ‘brainwash’ people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way”…
    Is his brainwashing working? You decide.
    ****These people have not changed their mission. They have just adopted the incremental approach now.

      It makes me sick that these elected and appointed people have absolutely zero respect for the Constitution. They hate it which brings you to the ONLY conclusion that they hate America. They should ALL be tried for treason then taken out and shot. If they want a socialist society their are many countries around the world they can go to and have their so called socialist utopia. We don’t want it here. We want the freedom that the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and writings of our founding fathers put forth.

  • KDS

    If they take our guns, they’ll move to knives, then to children’s toys, by the time they are done with us
    you will be lucky if you have a dinner fork to eat with.

    The liberal culture is built around control of others, it starts with controlling the thinking and education of the young into believing that those in control have a better way and will provide for their existence. Personal responsibility, self reliance,having personal goals, and knowledge of right and wrong defies their agenda. What we as a civilization need to do is get back to the basics which involves common sense and awareness.

  • godschildren9

    Our politicians are all idiots, while banning assualt rifles may have seemed like a logical answer to other countries it would never work for us. It is the easy way out that never really holds for long. The only people they are going to ban from assault weapons are regular law-abiding joes. The bad men and women that abuse the power of the gun won’t juat hand over their gun,they don’t care about the law. All the people that really want an assualt rifle will still be able to get one over the black market. All the politicians are doing is disarming society andbreaking thw 2nd amendment.

  • xplorer

    You have just described one of the characteristics of a psychopath. A
    psychopath will not take responsibility for anything they do. If they
    did, they would have to admit that they made a mistake
    and were not
    in control when they made the mistake. A true psychopath must always be
    in control. They never make mistakes, they never admit wrong doing.
    Could it be that we have a whole political party of psychopaths??
    Or,,,with characteristics of,,,
    Guns are not the reason all these
    shootings happened, the real reason is “the mental health issue is not
    being addressed”. Guns were in the hands of mentally ill people at
    Tucson, Columbine, Aurora, Sandy Hook, West Virginia, you name it,the
    common issue was; ” A mentally ill person had a gun and was getting
    revenge on society for some perceived wrong”. The issue is not being
    addressed! A computer available felon list would help both the police
    and gun dealers. Getting people to act on mental illness is a problem.
    Unfortunately, we will probably have more of these shootings until this
    problem is solved. Possibly, Aurora could have been prevented if the
    school had acted swiftly on the information they had. It would require a
    whole new approach and unfortunately, those who want to disarm us are
    not interested in solving the real problem. The people backing those in
    the democratic party want out guns. If the people representing us at the
    government levels aren’t doing the job we want them to do, our recourse
    is to replace them.

      I would like to see what part prescription drugs prescribed for some of these shooters. Some of the side effects listed for some of these drugs are worse than what is being treated.
      Look up “SSRI Stories” for some shocking information.

  • Frank

    You’re logic is easy to agree with. It’s scary that 52% of the voters either don’t have, or don’t want, a personal sense of responsibility.

  • dad666

    It’s not about Guns, It’s about control. they cannot take over this country and trash the rest of our Constitution unless they can control the guns and they know it. When will this country wake up???
    The Fag in the White House wants to rule this country and drive it into bankruptcy.

    • Black Rain

      Barry will also say congress is the ones who passed this bill, blame them not my idea. Call your senator and congressman tomorrow. We have to start there. Make them understand this is wrong and you will remember them come November. This is a treasonous act.

  • Black Rain

    Good comment. The other reasons is, the local government does not want to catch every criminal. If they were to jail everyone then taxes would have to be cut and no need for law-enforcement. No need for congressman or senator. I fear the citizens not be able to defend themselves is going to be the worst thing every. This bill goes through, all firearms are confiscated, murder rates go up, you think congress and senate are going to say, OOOPs made a mistake. NOT BLOODY LIKELY.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    The reason these people in NY, DC, Boston, Chicago, and LA want guns banned is because their own lives are so miserable and their street traffic is so infuriating that they are convinced if THEY had a gun, they would definitely murder someone. They want protection from their own emotionalism and rage because they fear that they too are a murderer at heart. Projection.

  • Roald

    It is true the Progressive left doesn’t want to take responsibility:

    Why is it that those who use guns to kill movie goers and children in schools are progressive Democrats?
    1) Columbine School shootings – April 20, 1999 – thirteen premeditated murders by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebolt, too young to vote but both from families who were progressive liberals and registered Democrats.
    2) VA Tech shootings– April 16, 2004 – thirty-two premeditated murders by Cho Seung-Hui, a registered Democrat who had written hate mail to President George W. Bush.
    3) Fort Hood shootings – November 5, 2009 – thirteen premeditated murders by Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim and a registered Democrat.
    4) Aurora, CO. Century Theater shootings – July 20, 2012 – twelve premeditated murders by James Holmes, a registered Democrat, Occupy Wall Street participant, and a progressive liberal who had been a staff worker on the Obama election campaign.
    5) Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings – December 14, 2012 – twenty-seven premeditated murders by Adam Lanza, a registered Democrat whose facebook rants showed he despised Christians.
    95 murders (mostly women and children) and ALL of these shooters were progressive liberal Democrats – – none were NRA members – – none were members of a Tea Party – – none were conservative Republicans.

    Before they take mine I will die. But before I go I will take as many of then with me as possible.

    Sick minds are attracted to “serve” in government. “Serving” in government as a politician gives them a platfom on which to manipulate other people. Especially attracted to “serve” in government are the narccistic personalities such as Obama, Pelosi, Feinstein, and Kerry. These people think they know it all, but have demonstrated the exact opposit. Narccism is a type of mental illness which low intellect followers misconstrue as “Leadership” personality. Hitler was a narccist. He believed that he knew everything. Nobody could tell him anything, and his decisions lost the war for the Germans. Same with Barack Obama. Obama’s attitude is “my way, or nothing, because I know better than you.” That is the typical narccistic personality: Only they know everything: everybody else is below their level of knowledge or intelligence….so they believe.
