Quote of the day—Alan Korwin

Finding and arresting the armed criminals, that’s what makes you safer. That’s what we all seek, or should. Keep the dangerous, the repeat offenders, the people who have guns by the millions who should not have them — isn’t that what you want?

Spending all this money and police effort and computer power to find and write down the name of every innocent citizen who goes out and buys or transfers a gun — what does that do but make people who don’t understand feel good?

Americans buy and transfer tens of millions of guns all the time, all of it legal, none of it connected with crime. Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, Bernie, Hillary, the solid block of knowing (and unwitting) Democrats in both houses of Congress, they want to control THAT. That’s what their H.R. 8 background checks are aimed at. Checks have nothing to do with making us safe and controlling crime and danger. Their leadership is 100% aware of this.

  1. Just another way to make criminals out of innocent people. The end result is that more and more people will just keep their heads down. The black market in guns will not be affected one bit but will continue to be the excuse for even more onerous firearms prohibitions.

  2. I don’t know many times and how many ways this must be said before it catches. The powers that should not be; they are not so afraid of criminals. Common criminals are, for the most part, their de facto allies. It is the principled American, or Protestant, they have most to fear, and hate, and persecute.

    To argue with them over crime and safety stats, expecting it to ever change their minds, is to utterly and completely miss the point. It is a failure to reconnoiter and assess the tactical landscape.

    When an authoritarian is putting forth consistent effort to make you focus your attention on X, you should at the very least know his nature well enough to understand that you should be looking at anything BUT X.

  3. From Walter E Williams today;

    Bastiat observed that “when plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”

    And thus, of course, they will need “gun control”. And therefore they’ll need a “moral code” which glorifies it.

    That’s why they have to fall back on the crime and safety crap. It’s a tactic, following a need, following a way of life (plunder).

    So if you’re arguing crime and safety, you’re at least two layers of lies away from the tactical reality.

    • Bastiat, a Frenchman even, was able to make his observation prior to 1850. What’s our excuse?

      • Yes, that’s the only real argument. It demands indictment.

        And I should have made it clear that I was referring to “our problem”, meaning the liberty advocates in general. Not trying to direct it to any one person.
