Someone came by to tell me we need gun control because “how much harm can a gun control law do?’
Well, a gun control law can either do good, and live up to its proponents advertising, or –
do nothing hand have almost no effect on anything, or –
do harm, quite possibly enormous harm.
Of the 57,763 restrictive gun laws that we now of, almost 22,300 apparently did nothing.In many of those instances, law refused to enf search out violators.
Which leaves us with 35,468 restrictive gun laws that have been enforced. Of those, not even one had a favorable outcome. The “end of crime,” or “major reductions in crime, or “we shall all be safer” failed to materialize.
And that leaves more than 35,468 laws that were enacted, often the help of exorbitant promises and bundles of cash under the table. they are what they are. Bloody failures.
Dr. Rudolph Rummel discusses the results of those gun controls, here, although others have increased the body count to 262 million. Let Google do your searching, 252 million democide” s should bring up a few thousand studies and commentary.
Some of the studies still in progress have extended the death toll to more than 400 million; MOE DEADD THAN THE ENTIRE LEGAL POPULATION OF THE UNITED STATESS.
Of course, this horrible result of gun control has a name, Democide. It has a face, too:
That guard’s photo documents the murder of more than 2500 Jews, marched to the trenches, shot, and covered over with dirt in one day. And that is just a small part of the history of gun control.
I know, it cannot happen here. It could not happen in Austrai, Slovakai, Bulgaria, Ukraaaine, Russia, China, or more than 100 other places, some pretending to be civilized, in the past 125 years.
But it did. So perhaps you can, in some measure, understand why we who know are so wary of those peddling hot air and gun control.
