The Name Says It All: Gun Control Isn’t About Reducing Firearm Violence; It’s About Control

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is a hot topic these days. President Biden recently announced plans to place additional limits on current Second Amendment rights with the argument that those restrictions can “address the gun violence public health epidemic.” Second Amendment defenders (here’s an example) argue that further restrictions on firearm ownership restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens but would be ineffective in reducing gun violence.

The debate on the effectiveness of gun control measures to reduce firearm violence distracts attention from the real motive behind gun control. Nobody wants more gun violence, so focusing on gun violence shifts the debate in favor of gun control. What the proponents of gun control really want is control, and the gun violence argument is merely a means to the end that they actually seek–a disarmed population. Arguments that look at the facts to see whether gun control achieves those ends are ineffective persuaders, because gun control advocates want regulation, regardless of its effectiveness.

It should be obvious that proposals such as those to tax ammunition sales will be ineffective controls on firearm violence. Can anyone really think that someone intent on illegally using a firearm would be deterred because ammunition is so expensive? For people who know little about firearms, limiting the number of rounds a magazine is capable of holding may sound promising, but magazines can be swapped out in seconds.

Focusing the debate on gun violence rather than on individual rights gives a debating advantage to gun control advocates, because nobody wants more gun violence. The argument shifts to whether regulations are effective rather than on preserving the rights of citizens. Arguing that proposed gun control measures would be ineffective cannot persuade gun control advocates, because that’s not their big concern. Their ultimate objective of gun control advocates is not safety. They want control.

    All of our leadership really should be lynched…they are all thieves and have completely corrupted the system…Congress (Nasty Nancy) keeps writing these obscene bills that give hundreds of billions of tax dollars to foreign entities and now we know that money gets laundered right back to these politicians and CIA….like Huessin’s pallets of cash for Iran….
    The FBI and CIA and DOJ have all been weaponized against we the people….and they are our employees!!!!
    Now they are blatantly in our faces stealing elections and rubbing our noses in it….they set up the Capital Hill “Insurrection” in order to give the criminals in our government open season on all White milddle class Americans and Trump supporters…
    I no longer care if Trump returns or not….Biden-Obama are destroying our country in real time right now with the wide open border allowing tens of thousands of invaders to come in each and every day…invaders they are hanging the expense for on taxpayers…this act alone will destroy America within the year…our military is useless as tits on a bull…they are the same fat, bloated, do nothing criminals as our Congress.
    Our government is irredeemable ….these liars, thieves and psychopaths must be hanged….we need a leader to organize a militia to make citizen arrests and hold trials and hangings of all these people…….if it doesn’t happen soon America is done for…we will be the third world shit hole Democrats want…
