Gun Control Based on Lies
If you have a better idea, share it and convince people it’s a good idea. If you can’t convince them with the truth, that should be the end of it.
If you can’t let it go, and decide to force everyone to go along with you, you’ll use politics to make them do something you couldn’t talk them into doing. In other words, you’ll cheat.
There are different ways this can be done. You can let Congress make up new legislation, but this is hard and takes a long time. These days a president will often just declare “It is so” and skip all the constitutional safeguards, which — truthfully — don’t often protect your rights from government anyway.
Presidents like this method because it gives them the power to impose their will unilaterally. There used to be a word for political rulers who did this, but it seems to have been removed from public conversation since January.
Executive orders, and their pale cousins — executive actions — are how recent presidents have managed to violate the natural human right to own and to carry weapons without bothering to go through the (still crooked and unconstitutional) legislative steps.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (which should be the name of a convenience store, not a government office) uses a similar trick.
The Second Amendment makes it a crime for government to make up any rules about weapons. Since courts are controlled by government, they usually allow this crime to go unchecked. It doesn’t excuse the criminal act of “gun control” when courts allow it to happen.
Congress, the president, bureaucrats, judges, and all other political people are forbidden to violate any of our natural human rights. They do it anyway, and they get away with it almost every time. They cheat and lie until they get what they want, and most of the public is OK with it. People get scared and don’t understand the issue because of the lies told by the national media corporations and politicians.
All “gun control” is based on lies. It doesn’t make anyone safer. It isn’t the government’s job to tell you what you are allowed to own or how and where you can carry it. There is no authority for government to require background checks or permits or licenses. Those who do it anyway are cheating. They are cheating you out of your rightful liberty. Why put up with it?
