Quote of the day–Kristopher

The first thing I ask “peaceniks” who advocate gun control: Are you planning on voting to send armed government officials out as your agents to seize guns and kill those who refuse to comply?
 
How can you be in favor of ‘peace” and send out armed thugs to do your political will?

You are not a pacifist. You are merely squeamish, and want someone else to murder others for you.

  1. I’ve long held the same thoughts. I call it my ‘Pacifist Test’. “If you came home and found somebody had broken into your home and was actively stealing your possessions, what would you do?” The answer is always “Call The Police”, which is a trap set for those who call themselves pacifists, but are usually cowards in fact. They demand armed men to come and do violence on their behalf.

    I have yet to meet a real pacifist…. ever.

  2. Art I have met a real pacifist, a devout Buddhist who simply believes any violence of any kind is bad, and believes in reincarnation.

    That said, he honestly doesn’t know if he could, for instance, LET me strangle him to death, or rape his wife in front of him.

    Really pacifism is petty-much against human nature, but its a convenient ideal for cowards to hide behind.

  3. Sort of like the people who get upset when you kill game and eat it, but have no problems wolfing down a Big Mac as long as they don’t have to think about killing the cow.

  4. Some thoughts from well-known men:
    “I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it.” – Dwight Eisenhower
    “I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.” – Mahatma Gandhi
    “Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
    My own thought: I make the equation that a gun is like a car. So many people drive cars. When you drive anywhere, you watch out for foolish drivers – when you use a gun, you watch out for other people who use their guns foolishly. Those who drive in a destructive, negligent way or cause harm to others suffer the consequences of their actions, the laws help protect the law-abiding drivers. Shouldn’t gun control be the same way? Gun control should be laws to protect those of us who are law-abiding gun owners, not the other way around.
