A Very Short Debate on a Full Gun Ban in America

The following debate took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artwork being shared by the page, “AnarchoChristian”…

Rayn:

“Liberals: Cops are shooting black people based on race.
Also Liberals: Only cops should have guns.
Republicans: Don’t question cops when they use force.
Also Republicans: The 2nd Amendment is because we can’t trust the government”

Sam B.You’re right. The cop shouldn’t have a gun either.

Rayn: But… without an army of domestic terrorists, funded by victim extortion, and operating under color of law, how exactly do you expect to disarm an entire population of innocent, peaceful human beings?

Timeless Colonial Wisdom…

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Statist Zombies,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“Good news! The government said if we just give them our guns, they’ll keep us safe.”

My Commentary: We’re saved!

Gun Control is Tyrannical

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Lysander Spooner,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the law abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless.” – Lysander Spooner

My Commentary: Keep siding with Accuser, lemmings! Your refusal to think for yourselves, along with your natural fear of freedom, and desire to control the innocent, is what makes #democide possible!

The dangerous Utopian myth known as government has been responsible for over ONE HUNDRED MILLION murders of “its own” in the last century (and, that’s just the most modest estimate, available)! But, by all means, continue to weaponize and militarize the State, while clamoring for your neighbor to be disarmed – in the name of fighting “crime” (wink, wink)!

When Fighting Monsters, Be Careful Not to Become One!

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall…

Keith M.: You Will Love This One!

"My next door neighbor wants to BAN all GUNS! Their house is NOT ARMED! Out of RESPECT for their opinions, I promise NOT to use MY GUNS to PROTECT THEM."

“My next door neighbor wants to BAN all GUNS! Their house is NOT ARMED! Out of RESPECT for their opinions, I promise NOT to use MY GUNS to PROTECT THEM.”

Rayn: Wow! While it is somewhat amusing, and the message is clever, I don’t really think it’s too cool. This guy is pretty much violating his neighbor’s privacy, and turning him into a target. It is as if he is tampering with the outcome of an event in order to make his so-called “righteous” viewpoint the correct one…very snaky. I have noticed that the vast majority of people who truly hold gun rights dear do so because of their respect for human life, and desire to protect it – meaning, themselves, their family, and beyond, against criminals. They own their weapon because of their desire not to see violence. This man’s neighbor isn’t a criminal, so why is he targeting him for victimization? Are his viewpoints about gun control too “criminal” for this man to tolerate? Why doesn’t he use intelligent discussion and debate to address the issue at hand? Has that somehow failed? I doubt it.

I don’t know the background of this apparent family fued, but unless this man’s neighbor specifically publicly targeted him about his ownership of firearms, this seems like it isn’t the right thing to do. The criminals are the enemy, so why give them information, or ammunition, for attack! What’s next? Will he hire someone to dress up and rob his neighbor, so he can chase them off with his trusty weapon, and say, “I told you so,” converting his neighbor over to the “right side.” Let’s just hope this guy isn’t truly fanatical, or his neighbor is in a lot of trouble!

As Nietschze wisely said, “Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster.”

We would all do well to “love thy neighbor”!
