Where you ban guns, predators will prey
In the aftermath of the most recent mass shootings and murders of police officers, we can expect to hear a mounting hue and cry for more gun control.
Instead of being defensive, we need to be coming right back at the gun-banners and ask them why they insist on a policy that's been shown to fail again and again?
Here's a good article that quotes Suzanna Gratia Hupp, whose parents were murdered in the Luby's cafeteria massacre in Texas in 1991.
The fact that so many of these monsters who commit these crimes commit suicide is a demonstration of their cowardice. Even though the perpetrator in Binghamton, New York was wearing body armor, when he reached the end of his slaughter he shot himself rather than face the guns of the police. He counted on having unarmed victims to prey upon.
We need to be throwing this right back in the faces of the gun haters. They are the ones who should be held accountable because their insistence on disarming ordinary citizens is the very thing that guarantees the monsters will have an open field, filled with helpless targets.
Now is the time to fight back, not to be defensive.
We own firearms with which to defend ourselves. We must gather up our arguments and take the fight to the public forums so that the rest of the nation understands that it's the anti-gunners who have the blood on their hands.
