Ten "Good" Reasons to Ban Guns"

Submitted by Bill Gaither on 5/16/01. ( WILDART@prodigy.net )

Read this interesting comment list by Bruce Gold: READ TWICE before coming after me with a hatchet. If the liberals get their way, this could happen to each and every one of us. Bruce Gold is not anti-gun, but his statements read like the notebook of some of the Mamby-Pamby, Liberal butt wipes in Washington. Who are they trying to kid?

Ten Really Good Reasons to Ban Guns By Bruce Gold

1.Guns are used in self-defense over 2 million times a year. However, this makes the attempted crime a "non-event," which necessarily complicates the Police investigation. Without civilian ownership of guns, these Police investigations would not have been compromised. Civilians should leave crime prevention to the Police who are properly equipped to investigate following the crime's completion.

2.Some .004 % (4/1000 of 1%) of guns are used in crime each year. This is way too high. All guns should be banned

3.Guns are unnecessary. In 98% of civilian gun Defenses, no shot is fired. If you ARe not going to fire a shot, you clearly don't need a gun. This proves that the guns are unnecessary. Banning guns will prevent these unnecessary defenses.

4.Guns cause criminal migration. In tough gun law Washington [D.C.], violent crime rates are very high. This high crime rate is caused by the migration of criminals from gun havens like Virginia. This migration is caused by the criminal's cowardly avoidance of armed householders and concealed carry civilians. This criminal migration is detrimental to helpless unarmed citizens in no gun areas and must be stopped. Guns should be banned everywhere.

5.Most gun crimes are committed by inner city gangs and drug dealers. These relatively small and geographically restricted groups consistently commit the majority of gun crimes, which usually peak as turf wars erupt over Drug War changes. The best way to prevent this is by denying guns to all law abiding people everywhere.

6.No woman needs to protect herself from rape, assault or murder. The Police will protect them by investigating the crime after the fact. Remember, Police paperwork is all the protection anyone really needs.

7.Guns owners are disrespectful of authority. Good citizens should completely rely on the authorities. A failure to do so is an invariable sign of improper and overly independent attitudes. Failure to completely and absolutely trust and depend on the authorities is excessive democracy and sends a bad message to children.

8.Guns owners engaging in self-defense are taking the law into their own hands. This is wrong. Only the Police and Criminals have the right to take the law into their own hands. It (that right) should be kept out of the hands of citizens.

9.Children and young people should remain ignorant about guns. Real guns and real gun knowledge dissipates the fantasies created by violent video games and TV. Ignorance once lost, can never be restored and needs to be protected. Not to mention the lost sales of all the violent movies, TV shows, video games and etc!

10.Guns reduce people's reliance on the Police and Government. This fosters a mistaken belief in "rights." No person has the right to question authority. No person should be less then 100% dependent on authority. This is fundamental to social order. Banning guns will help to establish the Order the authorities want. This is good!

If these thoughts don't get you active about our citizen rights, I don't know what will. DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN!

Communist Manifesto

This response submitted by RickJ on 5/16/01. ( )

If you delve into the (hidden) reality of what's going on, one will discover that this has been a plan since the 1700s. The old organization of the "Illuminators" is still as secretive, but alive and well. The wealth of this country, and this world, belongs to a small handfull of private entities whose plan for world domination go unnoticed, or covered up by major players. Their agenda, as-well-as their "rules of engagement", read almost identical to the Communist Manifesto, which includes a plan for keeping citizens indebted to government, gaining control of countries and world monies, and disarming the public. The final stages... to develop a new world order with a one-world governing body! (Recognize this one?! Here's a hint: U.N.)

Stupid politicians

Banning guns will never do any good except to get more decent people killed. No matter what the laws on guns are, the criminals will always have them. There is always a underground source for these people. Politicians who support banning of guns are just to stupid to see this. They will wake up when one of their loved ones gets killed by a gun - after they have voted that nobody should own one and the one who was killed followed the law and was unable to protect themselves.

Bill, Was that the intent of Mr. Golds message? It read that way to me. He had some very good points as to why we should keep our guns. I love a good sarcastic letter, it gets both sides mad. I think that is way you said read it twice. Thanks for the post, I'm going to send it to a few people if thats ok with you.

Guns should be banned&Proof they do not provide self defense

The National Center for Health Statistics reports that in 1998; 30,708 Americans were killed with firearms. Of these deaths, 11,798 were homicides, 17,424 were suicides, 866 were unintentional, 316 were undetermined and 304 were classified as "other." By comparison, the Federal Bureau of Investigation reports that there were 167 justifiable firearm homicides by private citizens in 1998.

In 1997, the Centers for Disease Control reported that children in the United states are 12 times more likely to be killed with firearms than children in 25 other industrialized nations combined. This report has never been credibly challenged.

Finally, violent movies and video games are played around the world, including Japan, yet Japan has fewer than 100 gun deaths every year. The obscene number of American gun deaths is not a result of violent movies and video games, or bad parenting, or teenage alienation, or bullying -- just the result of widespread, easy access to guns.

School Shootings
"Mr. Bush and the NRA are fond of blaming these tragedies on "society" to divert attention from the need to close the deadly loopholes in our gun laws. But bad parents have been around forever. Kids have been teased in school for decades. The difference is that today, those kids have easy access to guns. And they are using those guns to exact revenge on their peers as never before." "It's time for our elected leaders to close these deadly loop holes that allow kids easy access to guns."
from Center for Peace and National Priorities.

Amendment II

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

A WELL REGULATED MILITIA! COMMA Independent clause Comma! Independent clause COMMA shall not be infringed.

Take then time to read the Second Amendment carefully because it does not allow private citizens to own guns. Private citizens owning guns is a remnant from the outlaw old west and southwest like Texas. Even our forfathers knew well what the ramifications of allowing a deadly weapon into society were and that is why they wrote the second amendment.

And Finally if guns should not be banned completely from society then they should be controlled, and only those with special permits, trained regularly in well ordered militias should be allowed to own one. ANd WHY?! Because THAT'S THE WAY THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS WANT IT THAT'S WHY! AND MAJORITY RULES AND MINORITY RIGHTS. And in this case the triggerhappy hicks are the minority. Ban Guns Free America from Violence!
