The Truth About Gun Rights

Blog Explosion visitors. Please read this one! - Spread the word about it.

Who is it that is really behind the gun control that is spreading around the world? Brad Todd of Fundamentally Right has a post he entitled "Packing Heat" that gives a big clue as to the real forces behind this movement. It is a wake up call for those who love freedom.

We are told that guns are dangerous and need to be controlled. It is not the guns that are dangerous but criminals willing to use guns for nefarious purposes that are dangerous. Put controls on the criminals instead of the guns.

In his treatise Brad has a quote that I had never heard before. Many reading this may recognize it but just in case you haven't I'm pulling it from Brad's post and setting it here.

- quote -

"Corrupt the young, get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial, destroy their ruggedness. Get control of all means of publicity and thereby: Get the peoples' mind off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books and plays, and other trivialities. Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance. Destroy the peoples faith in their natural leaders by holding up the latter to ridicule, contempt and obloquy. Always preach true democracy but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible. Encourage government extravagance, destroy its credit, produce fear with rising prices, inflation and general discontent. Foment unnecessary strikes in vital industries, encourage civil disorders and foster a soft and lenient attitude on the part of government towards such disorders. By specious argument cause the breakdown of the old moral virtues: honesty, sobriety, continence, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness. Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext, with the view of confiscating them and leaving the population defenseless."
