If any of the following are false you can go to step two in discussing—–not having a gun, nor allowing me to have a conceal carry permit. If they (Below bold) are true then stay away from me and my 2nd amendment rights. The second point below (Bold) particularly bothers me because I know —–a large percentage were Armenian Christians, I would guess in all categories below there was a high percentage of “Christians” in those statistics.

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. >From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. >From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
You won’t see these data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late! The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this History lesson. With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are ‘subjects’.
During WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they
knew most Americans were ARMED!
The argument could continue forever with neither side making any progress in convincing anyone of the right to own a gun and having a permit to carry—those who agree with the second amendment will always agree and those against that position will always disagree in what the second amendment represents—with no citizen having a gun for protection.
So I propose we do this:
Any incident involving a gun with the person caught should be categorized as with someone having a permit to carry a gun and/or one who does not have a permit to carry. We can see quickly, who the good guys are, and who the bad guys would be. And if they do not have a permit when caught carrying in public they should have no bail and jail time tacked on to the offence they were involved in using the gun, and only if there was a violation of some law—with—self-defense and protection of family not being a violation of law.
I have this simple proposition which would only involves a simple check mark in the correct box on the report that the officer must fill out regarding the incident. I do believe this simple check mark will prove that a much larger percentage of incidents involving guns—-will have that person not having a permit and the real bad guys committing the crime or incident. It will also prove the bad guys can get the gun and not even worry about having a legal permit allowing them to carry in public.
Therefore restricting gun owner ship or the eliminating of concealed carry permits will do nothing to curtail gun violence and in fact will take dollars (conceal carry permit revenues) from the local sheriff department and that revenue burdens would need be placed on some other citizens group if in fact they are to maintain the same level of revenues.
No—–I for one am sick of this misdirection of solutions and the Progressive evilness being thrown at the American citizens—VIA–Socialism through crisis. “We the People” were once a proud Republic—-with a “Constitution” that meant something and was followed—-not anymore—and we are heading toward total social and cultural destruction–on the wrong path—-going in the wrong direction.
We shall see—Don’t you think?
