“Lie” can no longer be used in written or spoken English. It is politically incorrect and considered offensive. It’s better to say “misspoke” or “slightly exaggerated” rather than call it a lie. That is, of course, if you believe in political correctness. I do not.
Gun control advocates lie. They lie all the time. The end justifies the means in their minds. They know what is best for us. Guns are evil and anyone who owns a gun is a bad person.
Gun control wonks attempt to reinterpret the Second Amendment. Liberal professors and advocates try to pretend the very clear and unequivocal wording of the Second Amendment does not really mean what it says: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” We bourgeois citizens just are not smart enough to understand what the Founders really meant. They, however, in their largesse and with their superior intellects, will guide us to utopia by interpreting for us, taking our gun rights away, and all will live happily ever after.
Fortunately, the Supreme Court has consistently and repeatedly ruled against these dweebs that want us to ignore the Second Amendment, as they know how to best protect our families. Hail King George.
Gun control advocates are a tenacious lot though: “Their way or the highway” as the saying goes. They hope to get the next generation on their side by shaping our culture into something more amenable to their belief system. They have succeeded in implementing public school polices to promote their view that guns are evil. The mere mention of guns is supposed to send shudders up and down your spine, make you form the sign against the evil eye, and cross yourself. School districts enact rules that expel kindergartners from school for merely drawing a gun. Children get expelled if their fingers take on the shape of a gun. They hope this way our children will be indoctrinated in their ideology at a young enough age that eventually when they grow up, the Second Amendment will be ignored or overturned.
Like the current Commander in Chief, if the courts order gun control advocates to cease and desist, they merely ignore the order or make up new rules. The new rules then require gun rights groups to engage in endless expensive litigation to force a state, local or federal entity to obey the constitution and the law. The gun ownership law in the District of Columbia is a perfect example. A Supreme Court ruling forced the District to change their strict gun laws, and allow citizens to own and store guns in the homes. Through a Supreme Court decision a few years ago, the DC government made it, literally, impossible to meet the gun registration, ownership and storage requirements. Citizen rights groups had to file another law suit, several in fact, to force DC to comply with the court’s ruling. Those suits are still pending.
Lies of omission are another tactic that the gun control shills use to promote their cause. They love to manipulate statistics. Toting “increase in gun violence” or “murder rate rises” without giving you any context or the exact nature of the statistic they quote. “Guns are to blame!” “Ban all guns and all will be well!” They avoid the plethora of statistics supporting the decrease in gun deaths and violent crime when legitimate citizens are armed like the plague.
Today, lying is no longer frowned upon. This is especially true of gun control advocates. They believe they know better than the Founding Fathers. Those of us that believe in the constitution are mere atavistic, unsophisticated fools who don’t understand that if we only allowed our “betters” to guide us, the world would be a better place.
