I was trying to do some research about gun control because I do not like to take things as ‘truth’ just because someone says it; in this case that the supreme court ruled essentially the right to have ammunition. I did not find the answer to it when I came across some guys site that I rapidly realized was a typical spineless sheeple.
(I wouldn’t give this fool traffic, but just in case you want to see what I am referencing)
He gets to trying to paint himself as some sort of moderate and that it is only normal to seek gun control. ‘some real hope that a reasonable middle ground may be possible as America gropes in these polarized times for a solution to gun violence’ This is the kind of shit mainstream media dumps ALL the time, it sounds like it is reasonable right? Well shit all we hear about it guns are evil, there MUST be a a gun problem right? We just have to find a solution. But…if you look at the stats all gun violence, there is just not that many people killed by it. I think something like 16000 people died from ANY gun last year, and most of it is black-on-black intercity violence. For comparison over 1,000,000 people die from heart attacks, or about 50x the rate people get ‘gunned down’.
‘ which pretty clearly says that gun ownership was specifically preserved by the founding fathers in the interest of the common defense against a tyrannical government (remember, this was the issue on their minds back then).’
Because we ALL know governments just arent tyrannical anymore right? That would just be insane to suggest…
Anyway, this guy is a typical ‘I trust those in power at all costs’, unfortunately this is about 90% of the populace. What really sealed the deal was another article this guy wrote I clicked on ‘Big Brother is watching, and I feel fine’. He goes on to say ‘78% of Americans say surveillance cameras in public places are a good idea’, I really dont give a shit if 99% of Americans think it is a good idea, he commits the all-too frequent mistake that somehow quantity of people believing something makes it true. You know this is not really that much different than males who endlessly say how great feminism is while they get railed by it. Just a sheep complementing his master.
But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.
