Canada's annual Man-Hating Festival is well underway, instigated and celebrated by such sharp visionaries and illustrious luminaries as Windy Wendy Cukier and Lying Heidi "I Was There" Rathjen. (Gharbi was never anywhere near her but Heidi Rathjen refuses to let that pesky little truth get in her way!)
The cause of "gun control" will never fade because these allegedly smart women refuse to accept one simple fact: it is human beings who kill each other.
Guns are merely one of many tools used to commit murder.
By refusing to face that fundamental truth "gun control" advocates remove personal responsibility from the equation and effectively reduce our society to one of little children who don't know right from wrong; children who are transformed into mass murderers simply because a firearm is in the house unless Mommy and the Almighty Nanny State gets rid of the guns.
Absolutely, but that doesn't stop these people from spinning their yarns to anyone who will listen, usually others with an equal or higher stake in reducing society to irresponsible children who must be "managed".
Governments love "gun control" for equal and opposite reasons: they hate guns in the hands of "mere citizens" and love control over every aspect of our lives.
Until we teach our children about personal responsibility again and, more importantly, hold murderous criminals accountable for their actions, nothing will change.
Yours in Liberty,
