Quote of the day—Rich Burgess

There may be many different answers to school shootings and other massacres. There may be none. One thing that cannot be argued by rational people is that the answer to these realities cannot consist of advocating more violence against people, whether it be at the hands of deranged lunatics or the government. Disarming individuals has never, and cannot make those individuals safer.

  1. “Disarming individuals has never [made], and cannot make those individuals safer.”

    It’ll make criminals safer though. So there’s that. Don’t knock it; disarmament is good for something.

    How we judge the success or failure of a plan depends on what we believe is the intent behind the plan.

    I think maybe we too often see the Progressives as stupid, or look at their policies as “failures” and so on. Maybe we wrongly insert our own values and then criticize their actions based on those wrongly-inserted values.

    When they say they want to save lives and we see, over and over again, that wholesale violation of human rights is the method they want to use, should we believe they want to save lives? Why? Beyond their words, what evidence is there to suggest that they’re committed to reducing violent crime?

    We’re talking about a movement that’s been saying for generations now that there are billions too many people on the Earth. A movement which believes Humanity is destroying the planet, it constantly seeks more power over others and control over resources, has expressed bigotry and hatred for lovers of liberty, and…well you get the picture.

    It is inescapable; they do not want to make the world safer for people.

    Just remember that there are good people who believe the Progressives’ lies. We want to uphold the truth, and not condemn those who fell prey to the lies. “We struggle not with flesh and blood, but with principalities…” If an infection attacks and partially consumes your friend, do you blame and ostracize the friend for feeding the germs, or do you want to find ways to free him from the disease?

  2. I have to disagree with Rich. There’s nothing wrong with advocating violence against the correct people. Those who embark on a spree killing should be met with violence quickly and forcefully.

  3. These are the same people who think that declawing a cat does not make the cat safer. Consistency or logic are not valued by Leftists.
