QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

  1. Posted to Facebook [ here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here ], Quora, and Spreely [ here, here, here, and here ] —

    Q: Why doesn’t the USA regulate how many guns are sold to cartels and illegal organizations?

    A: Well, stopping the cartel members from obtaining firearms is the stated intent of those pushing various victim disarmament schemes, such as “assault weapon” bans, “one gun a month,” “mandatory ‘buybacks'” and the like.

    Except for the fact that the cartel members (or other criminals) who want to have guns have found this massive loophole in the victim disarmers’ “gun safety” “ideas” called “breaking the law.”

    More to the point, victim disarmers have been pushing these inane, insane “proposals” since the 1910s, and in most places in America where they’ve had their way, the resulting stautes have not only FAILED to lessen the impact of crime, those statutes have made crime WORSE.

    It gets better, believe it or not. Back in the mid-1990s, former Senator Howard Metzenbaum said of his victim disarmament proposals:

    “I don’t care about crime, I just want to get the guns.”

    “No, we’re not looking at how to control criminals . . . we’re talking about banning the AK-47 and semi-automatic guns.”
