The shootings in Aurora Colorado has brought the liberals out in force. As the liberal crap storm for more gun control whips into a feeding frenzy, I see a common pattern, and that is the spread of incorrect information.
One opinion said the AR was designed for killing at close range. In the military trials, bullet performance was judged at 200 meters. How is 200 meters close range?
Another opinion piece said high capacity magazines have no place in hunting. I don’t guess the author has ever seen the videos of people hunting wild hogs from helicopters. I don’t guess the author saw pictures of the LA riots where store owners were protecting their property with semi-auto rifles and high capacity magazines.
Here are the facts people:
Gun control does not stop gun violence. Criminals do not care about laws. If criminals cared about laws, there would be no criminals. So how does gun control stop criminals?
Liberals argue that the background check stops criminals from buying guys. If a criminal wants a gun, he will go steal one.
Liberals argue only the police and military should have firearms. And what, turn the U.S. into a police state? Our forefathers wanted to ensure the people have the ability and the right to rise up against the government. If the U.S. government becomes oppressive to the people, the people have the ability to fight back. When a protestor shows up with an AK47, I bet the police will be a a lot less likely to take measures against the crowd.
Liberals argue high capacity magazines have no place in hunting. They are probably right. However, the 2nd Amendment is not about hunting, its about protecting the people from an oppressive government.
