The Hypocrisy of Gun Control

The Hypocrisy Of Gun Control

The gun control issue is becoming a more and more controversial topic. As sides are drawn and verbal shots are fired back and forth the nation suffers the consequences of the battle that is raging on Capitol Hill. On one side you have the liberal left who insists that guns are wicked, evil, things that must be removed from society. They claim that our forefathers could not have possibly seen a rapid firing assault weapon and the destruction a psychotic killer could do with such a weapon (somehow they overlook the fact that inventors have been developing rapid firing weapons since the first time a weapon was put to use) but nonetheless they insist that they should be able to pick and choose who gets to keep what weapon and why.

Now a lot of people think that this is a attack on guns but I believe it is an attack on people. I believe the issue of gun control is not about guns but about control. You see, a gun is incapable of thinking, it simply is a tool that does what it is told. The real issue is whether or not people are just tools who are no longer capable of making choices for themselves. The truth is that by saying we are not allowed to have certain guns the liberals are in essence saying we are nothing but a machine who is incapable of choosing right or wrong and therefore they must decide for us. They disagree with the Bible when it says that God created us in His image and that He created us to be able to think and make choices for ourselves. Now liberals may claim that they believe that but their stance of gun control says otherwise. And the problem with that is that gun control flies in the face of everything that liberals believe.
You see liberals hold two basic beliefs 1. They believe that freedom of choice is the key to a happy society
2.They believe that education is key to solving everything

Lets look at the first belief. Freedom of choice. And let’s start by seeing what Vice President Biden has to say about the matter.

“I believe all Americans are born with certain inalienable rights. As a child of God, I believe my rights are not derived from the constitution. My rights are not derived from any government. My rights are not denied by any majority. My rights are because I exist. They were given to me and each of my fellow citizens by our creator, and they represent the essence of human dignity.”
Joe Biden

In almost every other area liberals believe that people should be free to choose for themselves. Abortion? Freedom of choice. Sex? Freedom of choice. Gender? Freedom of choice? Marijuana? Freedom of choice. Now they say that these choices are ok because they don’t harm others but nothing could be further from the truth. All of these key issues endanger others either mentally, emotionally, and even physically yet no one seems to want to control any of them. How is ok to control one but not the other? Think about it your neighbor is free to choose.citizen of our country, they are free to choose whether or not they want to inhale something that potentially makes them a hazard to you and I, they are free to choose to raise their family in a unhealthy environment, they are free to choose not to work to support that family, but we are not free to choose which weapon is best to feed our family with? The truth is gun control is not about guns at all it is all about people control.

Now how about education? What does our President say about the importance of education?

“In a global economy where the most valuable skill you can sell is your knowledge, a good education is no longer just a pathway to opportunity – it is a pre-requisite.”
Barack Obama

So according to our President education is a prerequisite. Our current regime pushes the importance of education in every area and education is important, vital even, to the future of America. But consider this. What if we approached the idea of guns like we approach sex in America? See in America we continually force sex ed earlier and earlier, we tax everyone to pay for that education and even fine those who refuse to do so. Now imagine if you tried that same approach with guns, imagine if you suggest that instead of banning assault rifles we taught first graders how to properly fire them. And imagine if you asked congress to tax everyone to pay for this education. You would be laughed out of the building. Why? I thought education solved everything? The truth is that the gun education does help the problem but the liberals in the White House will not allow you to say that. They are to busy trying to tell you that you are nothing more than a machine who is incapable of choosing right or wrong and what you are allowed to have, to listen to an educated discussion on freedom of choice. To some that may sound like hope and change. To me that just sounds like hypocrisy.

What do you guys think

  1. I think you’re creating a straw man here. Not every liberal I know would agree with the “two basic beliefs” you outlined. (1) seems to imply anarchism and I think (2) is largely wrapped up in how you have evaluated the government’s relations with faith-based institutions.
