In Face of Blue Privilege Corruption, Resist State-Run Gun Control

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Cop Amber Guyger Is One Reason We Need Private Gun Ownership:

(Ryan McMaken) When advocates of gun confiscation complain about “guns” and say “no one needs a gun for x” all they are really saying — whether they understand it or not — is “I want only cops and soldiers to have guns.”

While gun control advocates often claim to be suspicious of police power, logic dictates that the gun-confiscation position is simply the position that only government employees should have guns. Similarly, more mild gun-regulation positions are designed to increase the coercive power of government over the taxpaying citizenry, and to lessen access to private sources of self-defense — thus increasing private-sector dependence on government police for “protection.”  The gun-regulation position is premised on the idea that only the police can really be trusted with gun ownership.

And what a terrible position that is.

My Commentary: Only a mindless drone would push for State-run gun control in this climate of murderous Blue Privilege…

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”!
