Default Thoughts On Gun Confiscation

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. Subsequently, from 1915 to 1917, 1.5-million
Armenians, deprived of the means to defend themselves, were rounded up and killed.
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. Then from 1929 to 1953,
approximately 20-millon dissidents were rounded up and killed.
In 1938 Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945 over 13-million Jews,
gypsies, homosexuals, mentally ill, union leaders, Catholics and others, unable to fire a
shot in protest, were rounded up and killed.
In 1935, China established gun control. Subsequently, between 1948 and 1952, over
20-million dissidents were rounded up and killed.
In 1956, Cambodia enshrined gun control. In just two years (1975-1977) over one
million "educated" people were rounded up and killed.
In 1964, Guatemala locked in gun control. From 1964 to 1981, over 100,000 Mayan
Indians were rounded up and killed as a result of their inability to defend themselves.
In 1970, Uganda got gun control. Over the next nine years over 300,000 Christians
were rounded up and killed.
Over 56-million people have died because of gun control in the last century .

The moron legislators who draft gun-control laws don't have any idea why they're banning a particular firearm or type of ammunition. It stands to reason these brain-donors have no grasp of history and what it teaches us.

Sadly, much of the electorate are equally ignorant.

Great post, by the way -- it's good to have that laid out so clearly.

Great post. It confirms the Founders' reasons for including the 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights in the first place. Though they were concerned about personal self-defense (see the Jefferson quote in the Club House), their primary concern was to prevent the State from having a monopoly on weaponry just as the 1st Amendment prevents it from having a monopoly on information. Their lodestar was the conviction that NO government can be entirely trusted, including the one they constructed themselves.

They did it during Katrina. Horrible mistake IMO.

Angry Gun confiscation?

I am against it.

Like coiled snake or a trapped wolverine, it's best they just leave me alone.

They don't have to. If it's a gun that can be used to keep them from seizing absolute power, they must ban it.

Well, yes, you're right. One legislator in the New York State Assembly was heard commenting that .50 cal firearms are dangerous because they could be used against her.

She is exactly right. And that is why she should not ban them: don't screw with the people and no one will be inclined to mess with politicians.

The Katrina confiscations were outrageous and intolerable. But now we know what to look out for and plan for.

y'know they keep saying "guns kill people", but andy roony said it best: "baseball bats and cars kill people, but we don't stop people from driving to the ball game".

It won't stop there. I believe in England, certain 'knives' are illegal also. Their crime rate has risen since gun confiscation. It really boggles my mind at what (there and here) they will come up with.

Most knives in the U.K. are illegal. No locking folder, no blades longer than a couple inches, etc. Every knife I own would be grounds to toss me in "gaol" if I were to merely carry it in London....
