Gun Control. Intended for the safety of all Americans.
Or at least that’s what Obama says.
But, if the President is so concerned with Gun Control, and if he truly believes that guns are a danger to all people, why does he travel with armed security? If he really believed that Gun Control worked, wouldn’t his Secret Service detail be unarmed? Seems a little fishy if you ask me.
Well the cover image for this document is a great example of why countries/governments enact gun control on their citizens. Here it is in a full on view:
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty sure everyone in that picture is a tyrant. Anything even close to what these men have implemented in the past is something we do not want to implement in the United States.
Again, why does Obama continue to travel with armed security? Because he’s not concerned with the rights of a free people, he’s concerned with placing the government completely in control of the people. This is the general idea of Communism(link will take you to a PDF of the Communist Manifesto), that the State expands so much that the people are the State and that everything is owned by the State and controlled by the State.
The government does a pretty inefficient job of running what they control now (as can be seen by our ranking on the list of the most indebted countries), and I doubt it would get any better if it expanded any more.
So why, pray tell, do politicians want to make more laws, spend more money, and expand the government into every aspect of life?
The government is made up of men, and men can sometimes be a little corrupt, power-hungry, driven to subordinate others to their will. Patrick Henry, one of the greatest of the Founding Fathers, once said:
“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government — lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”
Gun Control is simple another way the State wants to “take care of us.” They want to protect us from ourselves. Well, I got news for the State: It’s not your job. True Gun Control is using two hands, not restricting the access of law-abiding citizens to the weapons meant to defend them from both criminals and their tyrannical government. An unarmed people is not a free people.
