I’d never give advice to anyone seeking to take away our Rights, but you can see from the few things we’ve talked about in this post that the policies of the Left are the very cause for the huge growth in gun ownership. Even their stated efforts for “common sense” gun control is met with a spike in people rushing out to buy guns. The boom in gun ownership among women in the past 10 years is something that doubles (or more) the numbers of guns bought by women in the previous 30 years. They are getting training and forming shooting groups and getting concealed carry licenses in record numbers with no slowdown in sight. Same with the elderly and those that must travel or do business in dangerous areas. They feel unsafe and vulnerable in today’s society. Like we talked about in the previous post; we don’t live in the 1950’s anymore and Mayberry thinking in a Walking Dead world will get you killed.
If the Left wanted to get serious about gun control, they would be staunchly pro-law enforcement and tough on crime and punishment. They’d be fighting for tougher sentencing for violent criminals and ending parole or early release of violent criminals. If they wanted to get serious, they’d make this the safest country on the face of the planet. The best chance of gun control for them would be to make the single Mom in the inner city feel safe and secure to raise her family. The best chance of gun control for the Left would be to make it to where the elderly retired couple would never see their home of 40 years suddenly be in the “wrong part of town”. The best chance of gun control for the Left would be to make the truck driver making deliveries in Detroit to feel safe to go about his job. To make Americans feel safe and secure in their lives and in their homes would do more to lower the number of folks turning to the one thing that can help them survive. The things they should do, they cannot do though. The Left will remain the “Number 1 Salesperson of guns” because of their policies that drive the average citizen to seek to get that one thing that can actually help them when liberal policies completely fail them.
President Obama is famous for saying that certain Americans cling to their guns and religion. The "certain types" of Americans that cling to their guns and religion are those that fear for their safety. They cling to their guns and pray for the safety of themselves and their families.
