The major media, CNN and MSNBC, all fading by the day, are blaming The National Rifle Association and gun owners for the school slaughter in Florida. The facts show clearly that for months, if not years, the local authorities knew the perpetrator was mentally disturbed, violent and a threat to the community.
It is obvious the FBI has long been politicized to the core and prefers a socialist government over a conservatives to the point of falling in line with the Democratic Party strategy of capitalizing on every such calamity instead of doing their sworn duties. The messages sent to the Florida offices were ignored in the hope a massacre would ensue as it is a goal of socialists to have a disarmed people and this tactic will produce it. What is the history of such outcomes? It has happened 39 times in modern history and every one turned out like Cuba and Venezuela. Why do we have the Second Amendment and why are so many patriots eager for every American household to be an armed household? The answers are contrary to liberal lies and to them shocking:
In 1776 we taught the world that an invading army cannot defeat an armed indigenous population if they object to them. Such armies are always less than one percent of the indigenous population. They are destroyed by partisans with small arms, crude weapons and passion for freedom.
Small arms are very accurate and effective at wounding soldiers, the prime objective in combat as it takes several people to care for a wounded soldier. Scavenger animals will take care of the dead. The Redcoats tired of taking care of wounded, went home and came back in 1812 for another bite of the American apple in the form of more spinning rifle balls.
Afghanistan is teaching us our own lesson in celebration of a people seeking their own destiny. It is not ours; it is theirs and they are defending it. There is a simple answer to Afghanistan. Get out while leaving lots of small arms and bullets. They’ll fix it.
In 1929, the Soviet Union forced gun control on their people. From 1929 to 1953, 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were slaughtered by their own government; the very people sworn to protect them.
In 1911, Turkey passed gun control confiscating all guns. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were slaughtered by the Turks.
Hitler’s Germany imposed gun control in 1938. From 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews and minorities unable to defend themselves were exterminated by the Gestapo and SS.
China put gun control into law in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million disarmed political dissidents were murdered by their own government.
Guatemala passed strict gun control in 1964; by 1981, 100,000 disarmed Mayan Indians were murdered by their elected ruling class.
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and killed brutally by their government.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated, politically naive people, gun free and defenseless, were rounded up and exterminated by the Cambodian government.
Defenseless people murdered in the 20th Century after “gun control:” is over 56 million; exterminated by their governments; people sworn to protect them; people to whom they paid taxes, were loyal to and obeyed their laws.
You will not see this in major media or hear of it from politicians in Congress, on television any major media. They prey on ignorance.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property by keeping the elected ruling class honest. Gun-control laws adversely affect only law-abiding citizens as well documented in the book, “More Guns Less Crime” by John Lott using FBI statistics.
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of the history. With guns, we are “citizens.” Without guns, we are “subjects.” The difference is profound.
Before WW II the Japanese high command decided not to invade America because Admiral Yamamoto, who had been educated in the United States, told them all Americans were armed and they would consume any invading Army. Is that true now? It is in one country:
Every Swiss male between the ages 20 and 55 is required to keep a fully-automatic, assault rifle, machine gun, in his home with a stock of ammunition regardless rumors to the contrary. Switzerland will never be invaded. No war general in Europe would ever march an army into Switzerland. The Swiss are armed to the teeth. The Swiss are free.
We think all citizens should know the facts of world gun history.
