“ The Repeated, Complete And Inevitable Failure Of Gun Laws To Control Serious Crime”

“If gun laws in fact worked, the sponsors of this type of legislation should have no difficulty drawing upon long lists of examples of criminal acts reduced by such legislation. That they cannot do so after a century and a half of trying …”

  1. Orwell's Dreams

    “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face-for ever.” – George Orwell

  2. Oh but gun control laws such as those in Washington, D.C. & Chicago knocked down by the Supreme Court, actually do work very well to disarm the peaceful, law-abiding citizen & placing them at the mercy of armed criminals.

    Unfortunately, Liberals are utterly wedded to doing what sounds good to them with no concern for what actually works. They never permit reality to interfere with doing what feels good to them to do, however silly, impractical or unrealistic it may be.

    Since 1987, when Florida implementated the first state-wide concealed carry law, violent crime in the USA has dropped in tandem with the spread of such laws. There’s been a clearcut one-for-one correlation between the passage of more concealed carry laws & a reduction in violent crime, but Liberals, true believers, refuse to comprehend this.

    According to “The Times” of London, 8 Sept. 2007, in an essay titled “Wouldn’t you feel safer with a gun?” pointed out that in Britain, where guns are outlawed the violent crime rate was “three times the level of violent crime committed in the United States; never mind the doubling of handgun crime in Britain over the past decade, since we banned pistols outright and confiscated all the legal ones.”
