Well, do yuh?
After the latest shooting in Florida, the Fake News media descended into their usual hypocrisy and hysteria about guns, or gun violence as they call it. Funny that people are not killed on the roads by “car violence”?
The real crime here is the almost total uselessness of the law enforcement agencies, studiously avoided mention by the Fake News Media. The FBI, the Federal Bureau of Incompetence, was warned about the shooter and his advertising his proclivity to violence on multiple occasions and yet did nothing. The local police reported that they had been called to his residence about 39 times in the last few years, still nothing was done. The lefty argument is to “ban guns”, which means that only that criminals will have guns.
So, what to do? Blame the NRA, of course. Murderers are not responsible for their actions; other law-abiding citizens are! That’s lefty thinking anyway. How does a society deal with this kind of problem?
Well, look to those who really know about it—the Israelis. From Israel National News:
Enter Israel: When the knife intifada erupted in September 2015, the Israeli government’s response was to ease the process for the civilian populace to obtain weapons. After a particularly bloody Jerusalem shooting attack that killed four, then-Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan drastically changed the gun laws in order to significantly raise the number of armed civilians on the streets. Instantly, graduates of Special Forces units and IDF officers with the rank of Lieutenant and above were permitted to purchase guns at their will, security guards were allowed to bring their guns home after work, and the minimum age for a license was reduced from 21 to 18.
Erdan explained that “civilians well trained in the use of weapons provide reinforcement in the struggle against terrorism”, while Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat called for every resident to carry a gun, and was even photographed traveling the city carrying a Glock 23.
And as for the “problem” of more civilians carrying around guns;
In addition, the overwhelming majority of terror attacks in Israel are stopped by armed civilians, not law enforcement. For example, the terrorists in the 2016 Sarona market attack were stopped by armed passersby. A pistol-carrying tour guide put an end to the 2017 ramming attack in Arnona that left four soldiers dead.
In Israeli eyes, guns are a valuable deterrent against terrorism. In fact, terrorists have told the Shin Bet internal security service that they often target haredi Jews due to the high likelihood that they are unarmed.
And what about “gun control”, or rather license to kill for terrorists:
Gun control has been proven to be a dismal failure in Israel. The Israeli Arab communities are rife with illegal weapons, with some police estimates putting the number of unlicensed weapons in the Arab sector as high as 500,000. Think about that for a second: The most heavily guarded borders in the world and a highly professional Shin Bet are still not enough to prevent criminals from obtaining illegal firearms.
When terrorists attacked a school in Maalot in 1974, Israel did not declare every school a gun-free zone. It passed a law mandating armed security in schools, provided weapons training to teachers and today runs frequent active shooter drills. There have been only two school shootings since then, and both have ended with teachers killing the terrorists.
It is an approach that the Americans should take to end the constant slaughter of innocents.
That’s all you really need to know when the hysterical liberal mob rants on about innocent lives lost. Just imagine if the Israelis had gun control…?
But they have common sense. So do the Americans (aside from the traitors in the political class).
If the right of the people to keep and bear arms is infringed, tyranny is around the corner.
