America does not need gun control.
What we need is Obama control.
Black and white statistics on guns, crime, and violence make one thing very clear: the more guns a law-and-order society has, the less crime and violence that society experiences. Guns, in conjunction with societal respect for law and order, go together like hand and glove. Today America as a whole enjoys a crime rate, and a gun homicide rate, that is lower than it was in the early 1960’s and than it was before 1910. It could be lower, and if a respect for law and order were to pervade America’s inner cities, where crime is most rampant, our crime rate would quickly drop to the levels experienced in the days of the Wild, Wild West, when — except for two notorious mining towns where law and order was not enforced or respected, crime rates were the lowest on record.
I’ve covered this topic before, in earlier articles posted here. Go back and read them, or better yet go down to the list of references at the feet of those articles and study the contents of those references directly. I don’t make this stuff up. It is the bare, honest, undeniable truth.
Yet Obama, along with Hillary and a host of others whose focus is not on gun crime, or violence (if they cared about either they would be devising ways to clean up America’s inner cities) but on massing governmental power at the expense of individual freedoms and liberties.
We need Obama control. Work for it. Pray for it. Study the candidates vying for the 2016 elections for President, the Senate, and the House of Representatives. Identify those who will protect your individual liberties and freedoms and vote for them.
Taking America back is your job. My job, too, of course, but if you — as an individual — want to preserve the freedoms guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution, you have to stand up and fight for them. You, me, all of us have a job to do. Don’s shirk your responsibilities.
