“A gun in the hands of a bad man is a very dangerous thing. A gun in the hands of a good person is no danger to anyone except the bad guys.”
June 12, 2016
The moral fiber of the country will be tested with this latest shooting.
Allegedly, 50 people or so died from this rather unfortunate event. My condolences definitely go out to those who lost lives, their families & loved ones.
However, let’s put this shooting into context.
The Second Amendment is the Amendment that protects all others, especially vs. tyranny. Without it, all we would have is the illusion of freedom. It’s bad enough that people need licenses in most places that allow [allow? – thought we were free?] concealed carry. Now, the comptrollers, and especially Hillary Clinton will begin wanting to push gun control as she has in the past, and as she’s been expected to do, that’s what Clinton’s do, after all.
So we’ve established what Hillary Clinton will do, which is ask that everyone hand over their firearms.
Ruminate about it. A criminal carries out a shooting. But, in the establishment’s warped mind, law-abiding citizens are the ones that should pay the price…
Does that even make sense? Why should people that did not commit any crimes and are law abiding citizens be punished for what one alleged person did? That’s preposterous.
To get to the core of the matter, let’s compare some numbers.
As of 2013, according to FactCheck.org, Homicide deaths made up 11,208 of firearm deaths. That’s nigh 31 people dying daily due to firearm-related homicide carried out by criminals.
Please keep in mind, there are tens of MILLIONS OF FIREARMS in the hands of responsible gun owners. If all gun owners were problematic, everyday would be hell on Earth in the United States. Such is not the case however, and hasn’t been countless decades.
In any case, in regards to mindless death, let’s harpoon onto something else that’s been plaguing the populace for decades.
It was reported recently by the British Medical Journal that PREVENTABLE MEDICAL ERRORS ARE THE THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN THE UNITED STATES.
That, conservatively, adds up to 400,000 deaths a year, EVERY YEAR. Or 1096 people dying every day, like clock-work.
Comparing the daily death tolls:
31 people being killed by criminals daily – NOT law abiding citizens.
1096 people being killed by preventable medical errors by the medical establishment.
11,208 deaths from homicides involving firearms.
400,000 deaths from preventable medical errors [conservative estimate].
*** The 400,000 deaths does not include the fact that the medical system injures 1.5 Million more annually, as of 2006***
Of course, we won’t hear the above verifiable facts from the media. That’s not convenient to the establishment.
But they will surely use a very unfortunate shooting for their gain. After all, establishment crony Rahm Emanuel said it best, “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.”
Simply stated, they will use that unfortunate event to push every single tyrannical agenda they can, and take away more rights away from the populace.
Knowing what we know, which one is a bigger problem? The 11,208 yearly deaths via homicide shootings by criminals, or 400,000 yearly deaths from preventable medical errors [conservative estimate] that do not include the 1.5 Million more annually? The numbers aren’t even close.
If people are getting up in arms about the shooting, why aren’t they up in arms about the hundreds of thousands of preventable deaths by medical doctors?
Simple. Their reality is carved out by the mainstream media, and they gobble it up without a second thought. Since most people think the world is what the box tells them, they realize NOT what the box does NOT mention, and they never question it.
Why would they?
Cracking the reality egg would make people come to terms with many uncomfortable circumstances.
An incisive individual would have to come to terms that reality isn’t what they were taught all along.
Thus, as individuals we have a choice, we either see reality for what it is, or we allow others to duplicitously construct a shadow of reality for us.
One reality makes us a slave to the system and all its agendas.
The other allows our freedom.
Which reality do you live in?
