Quote of the day–Howard Nemerov

Don’t like Jews or Catholics? Hitler disarmed them and then murdered millions in concentration camps, along with Gypsies, homosexuals, etc.

Hate Christians? After Uganda banned guns, 300,000 were rounded up and murdered.

Don’t like “smart” people? After banning guns, Cambodia rounded up and murdered over one million of them.

Hate people who disagree with you? After the Soviet Union established gun control, over 20 million dissidents were rounded up and killed.

By comparison, the Second Amendment has actually saved millions of lives. It also protects your right to religious freedom, your pursuit of happiness, and your opportunity for upward mobility. It raises the cost for thugs who want you rounded up and murdered.

It also shows that anybody who is against the civil right of self-defense is a person who hates your life, liberty, and happiness.

Why would you want to be disarmed before such a person?

Does civilian gun ownership cause bloodshed?
[Just a friendly reminder of the costs of weapon restrictions. And can you tell me again–just what are the benefits?

I have to conclude the people advocating weapons restrictions are either ignorant or consider the costs listed above are actually benefits. Since information is so readily available the ignorance is willful hence no matter how you look at it such people are contemptable no matter how they arrive at their position of restricting the private ownership of weapons.–Joe]

  1. Just a question along that quotes line. Does anyone know what the Iranians have in the way of gun control in Iran. I know that the ways of Gandhi in the long run will win that “revolution”. But I am curious?

    Also Joe I am thinking about buying a new gun in the next year. You once said you only bought brand X for a good reason.I remember agreeing with you, but I forgot the brand of gun you suggest.



    PS Love your blog thanks for doing it so well. You a very good writer.

  2. I don’t really know what the story is on gun control in Iran. I suspect it is rather restrictive or else they wouldn’t have been throwing rocks at snipers.

    I don’t think I said I only buy one brand. But have said “In competition I shoot a STI gun, I carry a STI gun and you should too”. That was because of this.

    Barrett has taken the same stand with their rifles in California.

    Thanks for the complement. I’m not sure I deserve it but I appreciate you saying it.

  3. Dear Joe,

    Well what a bummer I live in California! No S.T.I. for me 🙁 Thanks anyway for the info.

    Thanks again for your time,
