Who Nurtures the Irrational Belief

that Law-Abiding Citizens Protecting their Families Increase Crime?

Registered guns can be confiscated!
Why do Socialists insist on gun control and, eventually, gun bans? The National Socialist Workers party (Nazi party) under Adolf Hitler confiscated all registered guns, imposed a gun ban and then slaughtered the unarmed Jews as well as others such as the Roma (Gypsies), gays, and the physically and mentally disabled.

Nazi is the well-known abbreviation for the NAtional soZIalistische deutsche arbeiter partei - which literally translates as the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

Committed Socialists misleadingly use the initials
NSDAP rather than Nazi to muddy the fundamental connection between Nazi and Socialism (all Open Page in a new Tab). But ideologically rigid Socialism with its broad Nazi social policies, government jobs, brownshirt violence, government control of education (think Common Core), and "sensible" gun-control ideology has little appeal for pensive workers and more aware citizens...

Socialists including President Obama try to deny that their end goal is a complete gun ban but
the words of Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) recorded on CBS in 1995 give the lie to their denials:

"If I could've gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them -- Mr. and Mrs. America turn 'em all in -- I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren't here."

1. Do gun bans decrease or increase violent crime?

Gun-free Zone - that should give me at least twenty minutes to shoot up the place.
If you believe that gun-free zones are a good idea, then how does stopping law-abiding citizens from protecting their families decrease crime? How do you trace, step by step, from start to finish, the causal path from the ban on guns to the decrease in violent crime that you believe it produces?

The main-stream media print emotional reports pretending that shooting sprees in gun-free zones prove that gun bans decrease crime! But this is simply not true, real proof needs real evidence - not just tear-jerking stories - and there's none. The evidence overwhelmingly proves both that
gun bans increase the slaughter (all Open Page in a new Tab) as well as easier access to guns decreases crime.

Since there's so much anti-gun propaganda which contradicts simple common sense, do you wonder about media bias? See
here, here, here, here, here, and here. In fact, Obama attempted to destroy the Second Amendment by paying for bogus law review articles to be written and published. Other gun control lies by vox.com are debunked here. "Gun control advocates lie all the time," reports Gun Control Lies.

2. No massacres before the Gun Free School Zone Act

Although there were no - ZERO - school massacres before it was passed in 1990, Republican President Bush still signed Democrat Joe Biden's Gun Free School Zone Act. Yet gun-control advocates ignore the inconvenient truth that ensuring schools, movie theaters and churches are free of responsibly-held guns simply makes them massacre zones which attract mentally disturbed killers.

The 1999 Columbine High School massacre was exploited by Colorado Democrats to drop a pending gun bill making it easier for responsible citizens to concealed carry.
Dale Anema, father of one of the kids who survived the tragedy, movingly challenged their political decision:

"If two crazy hoodlums can walk into a 'gun-free' zone, and police are incapable of defending the children, why would anyone want to make it harder for law-abiding adults to defend themselves and others?"

3. Gun control can get you murdered!

California's gun control laws murdered two children, seven-year-old John and nine-year-old Ashley Danielle (all Open Page in a new Tab.) Fourteen-year-old Jessica Carpenter needed a gun to defend them but it was "safely stored" away under California Safe Storage laws. When the police arrived, they shot 27-year-old Jonathon Bruce dead...

Similar gun laws also killed both of Dr. Susanna Gratia Hupp's parents. At that time, the law prohibited her from having her gun in Luby’s Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas. Twenty people were slaughtered and many more injured in this mass shooting.

Liberal Alan Berg, an outspoken Denver talk-show host, used to enjoy provoking his listeners. Berg tried to obtain a firearms permit when he received death threats from a violent clique, but the police refused. He was murdered in a hail of machine-gun fire soon after. See Stephen Singular's book: Talked to Death, the Life and Murder of Alan Berg.

Dictators, kings and oppressive governments all want their subjects unarmed. The German Reich enforced gun registration, which subsequently enabled National Socialist (Nazi) Dictator Adolf Hitler to easily confiscate Jewish guns leaving them defenseless. In the 20th century,
gun control has actually murdered millions - MILLIONS - of innocent people.

But even honest liberals now admit that
criminals are more afraid of armed homeowners than the police. So who nurtures the fiction that more guns in law-abiding hands cause more crime?

4. Honest people Change Their Mind

Honest people readily change their mind. Dr. James D. Wright is the Massachusetts criminologist whose survey of imprisoned felons for the US Justice department caused a dramatic change in his views (all Open Page in a new Tab) - he'd previously attacked both gun ownership and the NRA.

Ohio Democrat State Rep. Reverend Michael DeBose was a committed opponent of Right to Carry laws - until he was attacked by gun-wielding criminals. He'd twice voted against Ohio's concealed carry laws and the experience immediately changed his mind:

"I was wrong, I'm going to get a permit and so is my wife. I've changed my mind. You need a way to protect yourself and your family. If more people were packing guns, it might serve as a deterrent."

Yet gullible people assume that because they obey gun controls laws, criminals also obey gun control laws and therefore such laws protect the innocent. Their minds refuse to accept that their thinking might be wrong - despite the overwhelming and compelling evidence that gun control can get you murdered.

After a brutal home invasion and sexual assault, committed anti-gunners James Dittrich and Meredith Duffy woke up, realized the immense value of defensive guns and are now "proud gun owners."

Devout Democrat Justin Cronin's anti-gun beliefs were challenged when fleeing Hurricane Rita in a SUV with his wife and two tiny children. He had
"not so much as a heavy book to throw" to defend his loved ones - which eliminated his lifelong aversion to owning a gun.

The university professor, a trained researcher who used to think gun control was common sense
now rejects gun control in his profound review of Dr. John Lotts' study proving that More Guns Less Crime.
Since evidence-based investigations uncover effective solutions, why is anyone reluctant to investigate preventing crime by discouraging criminals with an open mind? Despite rising violent crime significantly higher than National Average, one police chief categorically refused to "encourage [our Citizens] to carry hand guns open or concealed." Yet...
  1. It's not that he doesn't understand that defensive gun uses save hundreds of thousands responsible citizens from violent attack each year - that's one of the findings of gun control advocate Democratic past President Obama's CDC report. all Open Page in a new Tab
  2. He also know that violent criminals fear being injured by their prey. Surveys of police officers and incarcerated felons prove that fear of the unknown or known gun carrier - the risk of being injured - "has an immediate effect on reducing violent criminal activity."
  3. It can't be Democratic opposition to being armed because in working for the city, political opinions are not allowed to influence his decisions nor his effectiveness.
  4. But if he is a Democrat, perhaps he doesn't realize the Democrat's Center for American Progress study of violent crime concludes:

'Cities can enjoy "budget savings, higher revenues, and personal income and wealth gains by reducing violent crime."'

He doesn't profit from crime, yet is he keeping his eye on the ball? So we asked: What are we missing? But he didn't answer this question, just as he declined to give reasons for refusing to Discourage his Criminals and reduce his high and increasing robbery rate. Is he taking the 5th? As police chief, he must have a reason for his inaction, which leaves just one question:

How does anyone - except those who profit from crime in some way - benefit from refusing to investigate and implement an evidence-based policy so well proven to decrease violent crime?

5. Who Nurtures the Fiction that Law-abiding Guns Cause Crime?

Header Underline
Why are some people unmoved by facts and reason? (all Open Page in a new Tab.) Philosopher James Garvey believes public relations are to blame. Many opinions are shaped not by reason and logic but are distorted by your in-group allegiances and a host of cognitive biases such as confirmation bias, availability bias, optimism bias, etc...
If it were true that fewer guns in law-abiding hands cause less crime, then America should disarm the police as well as all armed guards - it would cause less crime! Democrats as well as dictators use such irrational nonsense to justify disarming their citizens. But who wants you to believe this untruth?

“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”

- Adolf Hitler, Nazi (from NAtional soZIalistische deutsche arbeiter partei, the National Socialist German Workers Party) Dictator, started World War II, slaughtered millions in the Holocaust.

Free People own Guns, Slaves don

Gun Control is Racist: Free People Own Guns, Slaves Don't.
  • RACISTS who believe that blacks should not have the right to own guns. See the infamous 1856 US Supreme Court ruling on the Dred Scott vs. Sandford case.
  • LEADERS with a HIDDEN AGENDA deceive their followers. When someone gets emotional trying to defend such a belief, it's because they can't defend it rationally, they haven't thought it through...
  • Others ignore INDIRECT CONSEQUENCES, says Bastiat. They see only the direct consequences: gun controls mean fewer guns. They don't realize that criminals don't obey the law, so fewer guns in law-abiding hands means more unarmed prey for violent criminals.

  • Some people believe there's SAFETY IN NUMBERS. They want you to believe it simply because they do. They believe the common fallacy which holds that if some people - important people - say something, then it must be true. But which of those many different opinions do you believe?
  • The EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM which far too often indoctrinates by teaching what to think, rather than how to think.
  • CAREER POLITICIANS who put their political advancement far ahead of their voters' safety.

  • Many people are just GULLIBLE, they automatically believe misinformation from familiar people - as well as their own uninvestigated thoughts.
  • Others are so SURE THEY'RE RIGHT that their mind is closed to the compelling evidence proving that more guns in responsible hands reduces crime. Last but not least,
  • CRIMINALS and those who benefit from crime do NOT want their prey - YOU - armed...
Beware, many politicians and people ignore the truth and tell you outright lies. President Bush raised taxes after saying "Read my lips, no new taxes" and President Obama promised "if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan." They rely on the dubious accuracy of ObamaCare's Professor Gruber who famously said "the American people are too stupid to understand the difference."

"With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option. You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back; but are you prepared?

"Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family."

Asked in 1850 what advice would Douglass give to escaped blacks who feared being enslaved, he replied:
"A good revolver, a steady hand, and a determination to shoot down any man attempting to kidnap" them.

– Frederick Douglass (1818-1895)
Former slave, African-American social reformer, diplomat, leader of the abolitionist movement, known for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writings. Strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and your right to defend yourself and your family with a firearm.

"In the last few years, the very idea of telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth is dredged up only as a final resort when the alternative options of deception, threat and bribery have all been exhausted."

170 million new guns, 51% decrease in violent crime since 1991
Stopped by police 14.3 deaths, stopped by civilians 2.3 die

Average deaths in a shooting rampage when stopped by police: 14.3. But average deaths when stopped by civilians: far less - just 2.3.

So discourage violent criminals and terrorists from attacking your people. Encourage your qualified, law-abiding citizens to be able to defend themselves, their family and their property. Both concealed carry as well as the discretionary ordinance are entirely optional - there's no penalty and they're exempt from complying if they object for any reason at all!

Despite media misunderstanding and much misrepresentation, Universal Gun Ownership is not coercive, it's neither Mandatory Gun Ownership nor Compulsory Gun Ownership. It's simply a choice to be prepared to defend themselves and their loved ones from a violent criminal in advance...
