It Is Not About Safety, It Is About Control

The federal government and a number of states with liberals in charge are working very hard to infringe on the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Yesterday Senator Feinstein introduced a bill that would ban 150 firearms because they look scary and would limit the number of rounds a magazine can hold to 10. That ten round limit is, in effect, a ban of certain types of firearms because the smallest magazine for them holds more then 10.

Joe Biden, the drunkard VP, is in charge of the gun ban effort and he has come out to make it very clear that this is not about gun control, it is about safety.

He also made it clear that the proposals of the Obama regime will not end gun crime but could make a difference.

The vice president fielded questions online in a Google+ Hangout, saying the proposals that he and President Barack Obama have laid out won’t end gun crime, but they still could make a difference. WSJ

It has long been recognized that these kinds of laws will not work and Biden is basically acknowledging that fact. So if what they are doing won’t end gun violence and at best, COULD, still make a difference then how is it about safety? If it does not make it better (which it won’t) then it can’t be about safety because no one will be safer. If it is therefore not about safety it must be about gun control.

Gun control is not about guns but about control so the overarching theme is that the Obama regime wants more control over people.

Basically what Biden is telling us is they want to infringe upon our rights for the possibility of safety (though he admits we won’t be safer). Should we as a people give up our rights for safety?

Ben Franklin, a man much wiser than any in politics now, said it very well:

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

The right to keep and bear arms is an essential liberty and it is a liberty the Obama regime (and minions across the nation) is trying to take from us for a promise of safety (safety that COULD happen). If we give up our liberty for this alleged safety we will deserve neither.

And we will get neither. We will no longer have the right and we will not be safe from the most dangerous threat to our existence.

The government.

What are your thoughts on the proposed gun ban?

    A couple of things about the gun ban.

    First, it has little chance to pass, at least for the time being. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t keep an eye on it, simply because you can’t trust liberals to do the right thing.

    Second, it is very disconcerting that something like this is even being tried. Clearly, Senator Feinstein and those who support this ban care very little about the Constitution and its provisions.

    I too thought that this asshat Rezident we have in the WH today would not be re- elected, but it turns out that we have more takers than patriots- mind you, Romney wasn’t the best choice, but in an election, if you can’t vote for the one who will do the best for the country, you vote for the one who will do the least damage, and that wasn’t O’bama.
