- Thus far our President has succeeded in proving the American governmental system is not without fault (we don’t need a House of Representatives and a Senate if you can pass whatever you want with an Executive order).
- Created more divisions among all “races” of people.
- Read off of cheat cards at his first in-office press conference. This was the longest time a President avoided a press conference for over a century! Surprisingly, Joe Biden said he was in the Senate for 120 years so he knew these statistics very well.
- Been an okay puppet, I think the Democrats should have picked someone less racist though.
The Gun Issue
Thankfully, I’ve not had to put Biden taking away our guns yet on the above list, but he is trying. Poor President Biden has been changing on issues like this his whole life, he just does whatever the “mob” wants him to do. Just like other things our President-elect used to be okay with guns, even saying himself you should buy a shotgun for self-defense. In the last year, his tables have turned, now he is avidly against guns and would love to have them banned, even though our right to bear arms is protected by the 2nd Amendment. Joe does not care, and will probably try to get rid of this Amendment.
Taking Away Guns Won’t Fix The Problem
In theory, if guns were made illegal then there would be no more shootings but because of man’s sinful nature, this does not work. For example, we all know that Methamphetamine is illegal, but who has it? The criminals! Just take anything that is illegal and you know exactly who has it, the criminals. That is one reason why taking away guns is so dangerous. When the writers of our Constitution gave us the 2nd Amendment it was not just for hunting. This Amendment states that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.[Italics added]” This is exactly what Joe Biden and his puppet masters are trying to infringe on our Inalienable rights.
What do I mean when I say the 2nd Amendment is not just for hunting? The majority of democrats believe our guns are just for hunting but they are not only for hunting they are for defending ourselves against other people and the government. The founders wanted us (the people) to have the same weapons as the military. In doing this the people of America can help to guard against tyranny. In the era of America’s founders, many great empires ruled ruthlessly over their people and the people could only stay and wait for the end. The infamous French Revolution was the result of the Aristocratic society of the french empire. The people finally had enough and overthrew the government for a time. This is such a great example because if the government knew the people would not tolerate Aristocratic tyranny and would fight the government you can be sure the proletariats would not have been chanting Viva la revolución!
Just look at the statistics, according to the Crime Prevention Research Center 94% of mass shootings since the 1950s have been in gun-free zones. This proves my point! Only a mere 6% of mass shootings happen where guns are legally allowed to be carried. Almost always there are more law-abiding citizens in one place than criminals, so if at one point someone came in a public or private place intending to commit a mass shooting it would not end well for him because other people would be able to disarm, possibly with their own lethal force.
Where Has It Happened?
Sadly, in the past month, there have been many widely known mass shootings that have accrued. Here is a list of some you may have heard of and if they were gun-free or not.
March 20: Dallas, TX
Eight people were shot, one died. This was a bar that is gun-free in Texas.
March 23: Boulder, Colorado
Ten people were shot dead including a police officer. The whole city of Boulder is gun-free.
March 26: Philadelphia
Two people were shot at a Golf and Social club, but thankfully none were fatally injured.
March 27: Yazoo City, Mississippi
Seven people were injured at a gun-free nightclub. Six were shot with a bullet and one was cut.
April 4: Monroe, Louisiana
Six people were shot at a gun-free bar.
April 10: Koshkonong, Missouri
Four people were shot and sadly one died in a shooting at a convenience store.
April 15: Indianapolis, Indiana
Eight people were killed and others wounded in a shooting by a fed-ex department.
I have not listed all of the recent mass shootings because there were about 45 in total but I just wanted to give you an idea of what has been happening.
They Pick The Easy Targets
The reason that there are so many shootings in gun-free zones is that the active shooter does not want to have any obstacles whatsoever. This is just common sense that they use. When we’re doing any type of task it is obvious that we would do it the easiest and most efficient way possible, this is exactly what the shooters also do. Just last week when I was doing some research for this article I came across someone else’s post on this issue and they had a very incredible quote. (I do not have the source for this quote but I am trying to get it, so I do not know if it was a mass shooter’s own words.)
“Remember: it is not cowardly to pick low-hanging fruit. AKA (sic) Don’t attack heavily guarded areas to fulfill (sic) your super-soldier COD [Call of Duty first-person shooter video game] fantasy. Attack low-security targets. Even though you might outgun a security guard or policeman, they likely beat you in armor, training, and numbers. Do not throw away your life on an unnecessarily dangerous target. If a target seems too hot, live to fight another day.” –El Paso, TX Shooter
As you see the shooters not only strategize before the shooting but go for the easiest targets. They do not want to get shot at, they want to do the shooting!
New Laws Say Your Guns Can Be Taken Away By Possibly Your Doctor
If restricting guns was not enough how about getting them taken away without any notice or court order. These are called “Red Flag Laws” (Communist America whichever one floats your boat). These new Red Flag Laws (ERPO) are the next step to taking away our constitutional freedoms. Essentially, under these new rules a family member, roommate, and even in some cases a doctor can have your guns taken away from you by just saying that you may be a threat to yourself or others.
“They are state laws that authorize courts to issue a special type of protection order, allowing the police to temporarily confiscate firearms from people who are deemed by a judge to be a danger to themselves or to others.
Often, the request for the order will come from relatives or friends concerned about a loved one who owns one or more guns and has expressed suicidal thoughts or discussed shooting people. The authorities may also request an order.” -NY Times
It sounds good on the outside but once you see how it can be used it turns out to be a disaster. And one other thing it is strictly unconstitutional. Here is one extreme way this law can be used to strip our rights from us.
“A Middletown man, the subject of a hearing under a state law to remove guns from dangerous individuals, testified Thursday that while he vowed to bring on bad press against his former surgeon and the physician’s lawyer amid an ongoing dispute, he never threatened anyone with gun violence.
‘Threatening people with gun violence would never come out of my mouth,’ said Alfred Conti, 57.
Conti’s five firearms were confiscated by police Sept. 25, amid an escalating dispute between Conti and Dr. Matthew Kaufman and Kaufman’s attorney, James Maggs, over Conti’s dissatisfaction with Kaufman’s practice, the Plastic Surgery Center in Shrewsbury, and a procedure the physician performed on him in July 2017.” -app.com
As I said before this is an extreme case but if stuff like this is happening at the very start of these Red Flag Laws then it will for sure continue to happen more and more often as these laws are implemented. Another problem with these laws is that there is no due process! You can have your possessions taken away before you are even charged with a crime by a court. The reason America’s court system has stood so long is that due process is not easy, you have to prove everything, down to the smallest clue or accusation.
What Does The Bible Say About Weapons?
The Bible is always the best place to go whenever discerning anything. Thankfully for us, the Bible supports the 2nd Amendment clearly,
“He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.” -Luke 22:36
This verse explicitly shows us that owning weapons is no sin. In the New Testament time, cloaks were expensive and many common people would not have very many changes of clothing so selling your cloak for a sword was a big deal!
I hope you enjoyed this very overdue post. We are still working on our podcast and have hopes to get it up and running soon. Have a great day!
