Greater safety, according to the VRG, lies in insuring that criminals can count on finding easy victims. The law should help satisfy criminals need for easy victims by preventing the law-abiding from defending themselves with guns, so that criminals know that they can victimize us with as little violence as possible.

[“VRG” is Violence Research Group at the University of Maryland. Snyder is referring to a study they published in March 1995. It was funded by the CDC and titled, “Easing Concealed Firearms Laws: Effect Homicide in Three States.”
And, as Snyder points out, they start lying in the title. The study examines the homicide rates in five cities, in three different states.
As, is usual, anti-gun people find reasons to make violent criminals lives easier.—Joe]
Criminals really do have a rough life. They are just exhibiting natural human behaviors, documented for thousands of years, yet “other-moraled” people don’t accept those behaviors. It’s really no different from being gay, trans, or trans-raced. Violent confrontation as a way of life is just built into some people’s genes, and we should embrace that. Totally accepting, altruistic liberal folk should willingly accept being conked on the head to have their possessions taken. In fact, they should just take turns volunteering for that duty.
The rest of us should just shoot ’em until they no longer constitute a threat.
Shooting ’em, as you put it so bluntly, is not our job. Not unless one of them poses an immediate, credible threat of bodily harm or death.
The Bible tells us, Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
In other words, Come out and be separate, and above all tell it like it is. Be charitable. Let the truth do the cutting. The truth is the most powerful weapon we could ever have– The enemy fears the truth more than anything. The rest is out of our hands.
For us to go rouge, starting a violent campaign, taking what we presume, in our arrogance and our ignorance, to be justice into our own hands, is to fall into the ways, and thus into the hands, of the enemy. We become the tyrants that the enemy accuses of being. The projection of the enemy’s own hateful, violent tendencies onto us becomes the reality, the goal and the process of corruption complete.
If you’re ready and willing to die for a great cause, then let that cause be to expose the enemy for what it is, by speaking the truth and then being attacked or even killed for THAT alone, and otherwise irreproachable.
Also keep it in mind that some of the most strident former communists are now some of our best friends and advocates. THEY understand the rape of the mind like most of us never will. That’s why the truth is being so strenuously opposed, hidden or misrepresented— Once a person is exposed to it, it might grow, like a tiny mustard seed, into a huge, sprawling presence that’s impossible to ignore.
