Liberals Squeal About Gun Control, But Reality Says The Solution Is Criminal Control

When a mass shooting occurs the first thing liberals want to do is prohibit legal gun possession.  This type of action would of course take guns from the law-abiding, who have never hurt anyone, and would leave guns solely in the hands of criminals, who have no problem hurting everyone.  If guns were to be taken from law-abiding citizens a renewed burst of gun crimes would likely be the result as criminals began to take advantage of the lawful removal of the obstacle to their commission of crimes (the citizen’s guns) and a free-for-all would result.

In the aftermath of a mass shooting we usually learn that the killer was a terrorist, a known criminal or someone who was known to be mentally unbalanced or down-right nuts for some period of time prior to the commission of the crime.  So it seems to the interested observer that if liberals would not be so soft on crime (he was from a poor, disadvantaged family and should be given a light sentence or no sentence at all), or if they would allow medical assistance and needed confinement for those who would hurt themselves or others (he was kept in a modern snake-pit which denied him his human and civil rights, so he should be released to the streets where he can be “happy”, hungry and homeless) we would be better off as a society and halt many such crimes.

A denial of the 24-hour media coverage of mass killings is also a good idea and would tend to limit the gratifying publicity that these perps often seek. But the current round-the-clock coverage, combined with a liberal president who mass-releases criminals from prison regularly, and the same radical liberal president who allows illegal aliens to freely enter our country and seek refuge in sanctuary cities, which in turn comfort and protect them, assures crimes will continue to be committed. Some intelligent restrictions in these areas would go a long way toward putting a stop to this “gun” problem.

Liberals are soft on crime (the daily Chicago and Baltimore gang killings are neither recognized nor commented on by our liberal smart-set in New York and Washington),  yet they are heavy-handed on non-criminals (libs would confiscate legal weapons from peaceful, responsible citizens), while at the same time liberals want to overlook the drooling, smelly, filthy man muttering to himself, searching the local dumpster for food, accosting people on the street and sleeping in the park or on a sidewalk, and deprive him of the option of sleeping in a warm bed and be required, under supervision in a proper facility, to take his prescribed medications to counteract his dementia.

I think Washington and New York liberals are the crazy ones, and when and if they start thinking realistically and not emotionally, we’ll be able to begin to solve some of these problems.  But liberals are so certain of their correctness, their superior intelligence and their immaculate compassion, I fear we’ll never be able to gain ground on the crimes of our times, which rarely or never occurred before the takeover of our nation by liberal crap-talk and non-thought.

  1. Criminal control? Don’t make me laugh.

    The first Bozo just freed 6,000 criminals from the prisons.
