Tragic Story In Massachusetts Again Proves Gun Control Advocates Wrong

As you know, gun control advocates continue to promote the idea that, somehow, making access to guns illegal will prevent gun violence and will decrease the number of injuries and deaths caused by the use of guns. If this were true (leaving aside the 2nd Amendment issue for the moment), then what they advocate might be worth discussing.

Sadly, though, their assumptions are not true, and a tragic story from Massachusetts just proves this once again. The Associated Press gives us the basic information:

A man who had recently been denied a gun license fatally shot his 6-year-old son before taking his own life, a Massachusetts prosecutor said Friday.

Understand, this man had already been denied a gun permit. Legally, he should not have been able to get access to a gun to kill his son and to kill himself. By gun grabber logic, this situation could not have happened.

But it did.

Look, we all want violence to decrease. We all want less people to be injured and killed in this world, but the fact of the matter is that there are people who are willing and even want to hurt other people. And these people don’t care about you or me or anyone else when it comes time to commit their crimes.

It’s not a pleasant way to look at the world or an uplifting way to look at humanity, but it is the truth. Fortunately, the vast majority of people are not like this, but, with seven billion people on the earth, it doesn’t take too many people to wreak havoc on the rest of the populace.

The truth is that the real weapon is not a gun but the human brain. The brain is what allows the person to have horrible intent and to choose something to use as a weapon, whether that weapon is a fist, a club, a knife, a car, a bomb, or a gun. And banning a weapon doesn’t prevent people with evil intent from getting their hands on those weapons.

Unfortunately, with this story from Massachusetts, we have proof, once again, that this is the case.

  1. So nice to finally read someone with an ounce of real intelligence. You would think that anyone would recognize that the firearm is an inanimate object, JUST LIKE YOUR FAMILY CAR. Without someone behind the wheel, the car is just a useless piece of metal. Someone gets in a car and drives while drunk, hits someone and kills them. You never hear anyone say, “It was the car’s fault!”. You never hear anyone say, “Let’s outlaw cars because drunks get behind the wheel (or texters) and kill others”. So, what makes anti-gun people so eager to blame the weapon when some moron decides he wants to kill someone else? To be truthful, the firearm has not decided to kill someone on its own, but solely when a person, with intent to harm, takes the weapon and uses it to injure someone else.

  2. So much for anti-gun laws. It is proof that laws will not work if the bad guy is determined. There are plenty of illegal guns amidst the public that can provide a gun to some one determined to kill.

  3. Why is America afraid to talk about Mental Health Issues? Since the 1950/60’s we have turned our backs completely on this subject, why! No gun ever shot or maim anyone during my four score lifetime, only the person behind the gun caused the maiming or killings of someone during my lifetime!

  4. The Second Amendment is totally misunderstood by the Gun grabbers, It was written to protect us from criminals and our own government and says nothing about hunting !!! Any Government that wants total control to repress the people has to disarm them first,and they start with registration then say you don’t need the firepower to hunt. What don’t they understand about “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” !!!!

  5. If an unlawful gun is desired, just contact the Demokrats (Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch come to mind) and they will be happy to provide previously confiscated weapons for your use.

  6. I am going to say it one more time. Criminals don’t care about the law. They will always have guns. I don’t know, why liberals can’t understand that. Is it because liberalism is a mental disorder?

  7. The USA has more than enough “gun laws”, very few of them being enforced, especially by the Obama administration. Many federal laws that would have made a difference in the criminal use of weapons were in place, but the Obama crowd refused to prosecute criminals that broke those laws, while calling for more laws. In truth, all the anti gunners want is total registration so that they can go from house to house collecting guns from individuals. Once the law abiding population is disarmed, the elitist government can grind down the people with no opposition. Case in point, every dictatorship started by disarming the citizenry. Ask any survivor of the Holocaust what the first thing Hitler did to them. He disarmed them, and then he killed as many of them as possible.

  8. There is only one reason the subversives want YOUR guns.
    Alexander Hamilton: “The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed,” adding later, “If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government.” By the way, Hamilton is referring to what institution when he says “the representatives of the people”?
    James Madison: “(The Constitution preserves) the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
    George Mason, author of the Virginia Bill of Rights, which inspired our Constitution’s Bill of Rights, said, “To disarm the people — that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
    Thomas Jefferson: “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.”
    The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves from tyranny in Government. A Free People ought not only be armed and disciplined, but have sufficient Arms and Ammunition to maintain a Status of Independence from any who might attempt to abuse them which would include their own government. George Washington.

  9. When Donald Keller made and started selling his Kel Lite flashlight, the police chief here banned them from being carried by the police. It was his thinking that officers would be inclined to use that to cause severe injury or death to citizens they may scuffle with during an arrest. He also banned wood nightsticks for the same reason. He reversed his decisions when he found that it was not the ‘tools’ that were the problem. It was the lack of proper education of some people. Once he came to that conclusion, he altered the training, and the officers were allowed to carry those great tools.

    That is exactly the same thing with all the nincompoop thought process in the thinking that guns are the problem. Such anti-gun laws will do nothing to stop criminal acts with firearms, but may only increase those acts by making most citizens unarmed victims.

  10. The vehicle that terrorist was driving was not at fault for killing the people in NYC, it was the human driver! It was used as a weapon to carry out his ISIS culture to kill and injure.

    I had a intruder enter my home while I was shopping. I had a sandbox in the entry for my two little boys and had swept up all the sand before I had left the house. I noticed sand on the floor and looked around. He had unlocked all my windows. That night I seen heard a rattle by my window so I crawled on the floor to the kitchen and called the sheriff and neighbor. The neighbors came out with deer rifles so he was lucky he had left. My husband was working out of town so he loaded the pistol with birdshot and my dad borrowed me his dog. A couple nights later he was back. The dog ran the full length of the house and slammed into the door. I got the pistol, let the dog out and seen the man running away. I shot him in the ass and seen him jump. The dog chased him and didn’t come back for a long time. The Sheriff came and was a little worried when he found out that I was due with my third child any day. They caught him a few days later. He had stolen things and was a peeping Tom. I had a affiliate in CA and a Mexican crew member threatened me with a knife because he didn’t want to take orders from a woman. I also had a Mexican crew member threaten me with a knife in SD when he was mad because he had to wait for his paycheck for an hour (I had to take the other crews names out of payroll in order to process just his check). I told them both to put (the knife) it where the Sun don’t shine or they would be in deep trouble. I didn’t dare let them see my fear. After that I got a pistol and a gun permit. You damn right we have the right to protect ourselves, our families and our businesses. We need to protect ourselves from rogue politicians and a rogue government, too! God Bless our forefathers to have the wisdom to put our rights into the Constitution.

  11. ALL OF YOU MADE INTELLIGENT, INFORMED COMMENTS. I LOVED
    THE QUOTES FROM SOME OF OUR FOUNDERS! WISH SOME OF YOU COULD GIVE TALKS TO THE UNINFORMED. YOU’RE ALSO
    CORRECT CONCERNING LIBERAL EDUCATIONS! THE STINKING
    PROGRESSIVES WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT IDIOTIC DECISION!
    NOW, WE’RE FIGHTING BACK AGAINST OUR OWN LIBERAL EDUCATED BROTHERS!

  12. Very, very good point. I like. On the side I have to wonder: Is the point of gun control to keep us safe or to subjugate us?
