A MODEST PROPOSAL
The goal of reducing or preventing mass shootings will never be achieved through gun control measures, so let’s just take that idea off the table right now.
A veritable plethora of statistics exists which substantiate this fact and prove that the most rampant gun violence takes place in regions with the toughest gun laws, so I won’t waste time arguing this dead issue here.
Let’s step away from the subject of guns for a moment and take a closer look at the perpetrators, the trigger pullers who have carried out the most infamous mass shootings of late:
- Ft Hood Shooter: Registered Democrat, Muslim
- Columbine Shooters: Both families were registered Democrats and progressives/liberals
- Virginia Tech Shooter: Wrote hate mail to President Bush and staff, was a registered Democrat
- Colorado Theater Shooter: Registered Democrat, staff worker on Obama campaign, “occupy wall street” participant, progressive/liberal
- Connecticut School Shooter: Registered Democrat, hated Christians, mentally ill
Q: What seems to be the most common connection between these shooters?
A: They were all progressives, liberals, democrats, or some other variety of leftist.
Why is it that the group of perpetrators who stalk and kill movie-goers or who slaughter innocent children in their schools have never included a non-leftist or an NRA member? These same mentally challenged (read retarded and/or psychotic) leftists proffer banning guns for everyone, including the sane, non-leftists among us.
Allowing leftists (especially leftist politicians) to decide how to curb mass shootings is like having a child molester babysit your children.
Some conclude that because of these irrefutable statistics, we should ban all leftists from owning guns, or mandate that all leftists must join the NRA and own a gun. But we must remember, guns don’t kill people, people kill people… especially leftists.
So, these are ignorant, illogical ideas that have no possibility whatsoever of curbing mass shootings. And these shootings are not gun violence. They are violence carried out with guns.
If some crazed killer was bludgeoning people to death with a baseball bat, would we call it baseball bat violence? Of course not because inanimate objects cannot be violent.
The paramount solution is much simpler and strikes directly at the heart of the problem:
Make it illegal for anyone to be a progressive, a liberal, a Democrat or any other variety of leftist within our country’s borders. Label these elements as mentally ill—because they are—and remove them from society so they cannot steal or otherwise possess firearms with which to kill innocent people.
In short, take leftists out of the system and the mass shooting problem will be solved—tout suite!
