A Gun in the Hand....

...Is worth far more than an entire police department on the other end of the phone. Click the title of this post to see the article that spawned this post. Read it and then come back. So gun control-aholics... Explain to me again how it is that we should all surrender our right to self defense and allow 911 to replace that pistol in the nightstand... What was it that calling 911 did to prevent that woman's murder?
The woman told the dispatcher someone was trying to break into her home in
upscale West Covina, Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Dan Rosenberg said.
"Deputies heard gunshots followed by silence and an open phone line," he

Deputies arrived at the house, 20 miles east of Los Angeles, a few
minutes after Wednesday's late morning call.

The woman, whose name was not released by police, had been shot several times. Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.

California has received the highest rating of all 50 states from the Brady Campaign against gun violence. Please explain to me how all of those laws made this woman any safer.

Allow me to introduce you to a little common sense.

Oklahoma and Kentucky are tied for the worst rating from the Brady Campaign. California however had 6.8 murders per 100,000 citizens in 2006. Kentucky had 4 per 100,000 and Oklahoma had 5.8 per 100,000. Somehow all of that gun control doesn't seem to equate to fewer murders. In fact if you think about it, why would a criminal care about gun laws? If they are going to disregard laws prohibiting breaking and entering, rape, theft or murder why would they abide by laws regarding the possession of firearms?

Sometime ago a family member of mine, my sister, came to this blog and tried to equate my teaching my son marksmanship to this. Her reaction was not unlike other reactions I've received from other liberals to the image of my adorable son holding a tool that could save his life. So if this woman had taken up a firearm and defended herself, preventing her murder; would she be the same as those terrorist children?

Let's make this absolutely clear. Guns do not cause crime... liberalism does. As time has gone by, our nation has moved more and more to the left. What has that move brought us? When I was a child we could (and did) pray in school. Luckily, that's been eliminated and instead our children are fed a constant diet of agitprop. Our crime rates are drastically higher than back then, but thank goodness our children can't pray in school. When I was a kid I got a spanking when I misbehaved. Thank goodness that's being eliminated. I mean violence among inner city youth is spiraling out of control, but it's good that parents soon will not be able to correct their children in any meaningful way. When I was a kid it was almost unheard of for children to be born out of wedlock and the majority of people went to church regularly. Luckily both of those heinous things are also on the decline, our prison population is the highest it's ever been as a percentage of the population at large, but luckily little girls can hatch one unwanted kid after another out of wedlock and membership in those hateful churches is on the decline. Naturally none of those things are related.

Liberals have mangled our society. They've tried to engineer it into some Utopian fantasy by enacting their stupid laws and when those laws are found inadequate, rather than repealing them as failed concepts, they simply enact more laws to patch the holes and further constrict or abridge our freedoms. Liberalism is the cause of crime. It is the liberals that decry punishment for criminals and prefer "rehabilitation". We all know that the criminal isn't to blame for his or her behavior right? Life should not have any consequences of course.

It is liberals that enjoy and strive to disarm the law abiding, leaving them defenseless like the woman in the linked article and it is they who are to blame for their deaths.

Hopefully the SCOTUS will interject some common sense in this insanity, but even if they come out completely on the correct side of the issue and abolish every infringement of our right to keep and bear arms it will still do nothing to eliminate the underlying mental illness that spawned those infringements in the first place... liberalism.
