Isn’t it peculiar that the same political factions who support gun control are the same who advocate that Syrian refugees flock to American soil? Such a thought could breed countless conspiracy theories, but the bottom line is that dumb people proposed both contrary assertions. The ideological loons who want to believe that government is competent to actually interview possible terrorist suspects from a war-torn region want to disarm us all completely so that we can’t defend ourselves when they make mistakes—which history shows is often.
Guns however are as much a part of American culture as baseball, football, and two automobiles for every family. Guns are part of what makes America the type of place all these refugees want to flock to—for just a hope of freedom in their lives. Without question most of the Syrian refugees are good people—so the question begs to be asked, why do they flee to the United States? Is it to be away from guns—because in Syria, there are a lot of guns? But the United States has more guns per capita than anyplace in the world—so if guns were so dangerous, those Syrian people would be jumping out of the pot into the frying pan—and that wouldn’t be very smart.
The difference is that in America a bunch of losers would not be allowed to roam the American streets unmolested raping and pillaging everyone they meet—like what is happening right now in Iraq, because so many people are armed and would stop them. It isn’t impossible in America, except through means of deceit, to exert terror in the United States because so many people are armed. That is why people in America don’t have to worry about a pick-up truck full of ISIS supporters taking over their house, raping their women, cutting the heads off the men, and indoctrinating their children—because in America, those idiots would be dead in less than the time it takes to pull the trigger on a gun. Our American society needs more guns carried more openly more often in more places, not less. Because guns keep our capitalist society free of tyrants large and small.
That’s why I’m excessively proud of my state of Ohio for the following message sent to me by one of the best conservative lobby groups there is—and thank goodness they are out there—the NRA.
|Ohio: Concealed Carry Expansion Legislation Passes in the House!|
|On November 17th, concealed carry expansion, Sub. House Bill 48, passed in the state House by a vote of 68-29. Sub. HB 48 will now go to the state Senate for consideration.
As previously reported, Sub. HB 48, sponsored by Representative Ron Maag (R-62), would expand where Ohio carry permit holders may lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense. This bill would also give college institutions discretion on whether to allow concealed carry on their campuses.
Moms Demand Action, a gun control group funded by billionaire and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg,is working hard to kill Sub. HB 48 and to restrict your rights in the state of Ohio by using fear tactics and spreading misinformation.
The importance of this legislation is underscored by the fact that since 1983, the number of Right-to-Carry “shall issue” licensing/permitting states has increased from 8 to 41. During this same period, the nation’s murder and total violent crime rates have decreased to 44-year lows, respectively.
Please take a moment to thank your state Representative if she or he voted in favor of this important legislation. Your NRA-ILA will update you on this critical legislation once it has been assigned to a committee.
What we are up against are liberal activists like Bloomberg who funds anti-gun sentiments which actually weakens the quality of American life. So they have to be stopped and the best way to do that is to provide them with the opposite results they had been seeking. Expanding the concealed carry law in Ohio is a path toward preserving that increased quality of life. It keeps the thugs at bay and prevents them from taking over hotels and homes with coercion, because somebody, somewhere—the bad guys never know who—might stop them. Concealed carry is the type of law that terrifies bad guys—because they cannot command the battlefield of terrorism with a one way directive. If they bring weapons to a fight—the other party likely is also armed. And that makes everyone safer and allows our economy to flourish without the kinds of fear other countries face often from extreme minorities of radicals.
The reason so many immigrants around the world want to flock to the United States isn’t just because there is money and jobs. It’s because there’s an inherit safety to our society because of guns—because we don’t rely exclusively on government workers to keep us safe. Guns are the safety net of incompetence—which is all too frequent in all government positions—where people get paid whether or not they do a quality job. Most of the time—they don’t—so if someone is asleep on the job, criminals don’t just have an easy time of harassing people—because those people could be armed. With the new expansion proposal of concealed carry, more people would have a chance to be armed in more places. And that would be a wonderful thing.
