The Big Government left can’t win on gun control through legislation. So now they are attempting to short-circuit the Second Amendment through international agreements.
And they have new momentum. Not letting a tragedy go to waste, gun-control legislators like New York’s mayor Michael Bloomberg are exploiting the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, to push for heavier ammo and gun control.
Moving on from his idiotic campaign to ban Big Gulps and other large soft-drink containers, Bloomberg continues to stay busy:
Meanwhile, Democratic Senators Frank Lautenberg (NJ), Barbara Boxer (CA), Jack Reed (RI), Bob Menendez (NJ), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Chuck Schumer (NY), and Dianne Feinstein (CA) offered an amendment to the Cybersecurity Act (that has so far been blocked) to “limit the purchase of high capacity gun magazines for some consumers… illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes, and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition…,” according to The Hill.
On the Horizon: Foreign Government
Control over Our 2nd Amendment
Currently, the U.N. is actively piecing together the U.N. Small Arms Treaty. Contributing writer to Forbes magazine, Larry Bell, suggests this treaty will:
Greater gun control, or trusting bureaucrats and law enforcement to protect us at every turn, only creates a type of “self-defense” moral hazard. It is our right and our responsibility to defend ourselves.
The Good News Is Public Opinion Is Turning against Gun Control
Public opinion is moving to support responsible and trained gun rights!
The public understands the facts. The good guys need guns to defend against the bad guys and help the police. As the saying goes, “when you have only seconds, the police are just minutes away.”
A simple online search reveals numerous local news reports and retail store video surveillance footage showing armed citizens fighting back and winning against armed robbers, criminals, and the mentally deranged, saving countless lives.
In response to mayor Bloomberg’s comments on the Colorado shooting, Front Sight Firearms Training Institute founder Dr. Ignatius Piazza wrote, “Anyone can see, due to so many real world examples readily available on the Internet, that when you have an armed, trained, responsible citizen in a public place EVERYONE IS SAFER and such murderous rampages as have occurred countless times in ‘Gun Free Zones’ just can’t happen.”
Two Tales for One City — Aurora, Colorado
It seems when the bad guy wins and kills and injures dozens of people… that makes national news headlines. But, when the opposite happens, and the good guy quickly stops the bad guy and saves countless lives… that news stays local and quickly disappears.
In Aurora, Colorado (the same town of the movie theater massacre), during this past April just after the Sunday service finished, a Mr. Kiarron Parker drove into the Destiny Center church parking lot and started shooting. No one knew him.
He managed to kill the pastor’s mother who was standing near the church exit. But before he took aim on everyone else, one of the church members, who was legally carrying a concealed gun, shot back and killed Parker.
Everyone else survived. Unfortunately, there was no national news headline for this story and no mayor or senator on television banging a desk for stronger gun rights.
Crooks Laugh at Gun-Control Laws
Gun-control laws only put innocent citizens at risk and actually make the streets safer for the crooks and criminals to commit their crimes. Chicago gun-rights attorney Eric Puryear has made the following observations:
