Gun Control Has Never Really Been About Saving Lives


Many people have this giant misconception that gun control is about saving lives. And, to be fair, politicians and the mainstream media keep pushing this idea because savings lives is a huge selling point which people will tend to support.

Can you really blame them? As a society, we have doctors and hospitals specifically for the purpose of saving lives. It’s also why we have police departments and fire departments. It’s the humane thing to do.

The only problem is that gun control was never really about saving lives. Sheila Stokes explains:


Yours, theirs, doesn’t matter. Progressives are all in for the ideology of control. Be it whether or not you can have a 32 ounce soda pop or an AR-15. And yes, Mikey Bloomberg financier of the astro-turf Everytown for gun safety, is gearing up to run for President. It’s about control because without control they don’t have the power they are striving for.

They are trying so desperately to peddle the bill of goods known as “It’s for the children”. But it really isn’t you see.

All those “Red Flag” or Preemptive prove your innocence or extreme risk orders of protection? No matter what you choose to call it by, it stinks. It is gun confiscation without due process from someone who has done nothing. In most cases they are engaging in mind reading. Or in some cases, just vindictive behavior.

But, as Stokes points out, when they have someone who is clear about their intent to hurt people, those in government too often don’t do anything. See the Marjory Stoneman shooter who gave plenty of signs that people noticed, but authorities took no action. Stokes also noted other mass and would-be mass shooters. One had been taken into custody and released. Where is the action to get these dangerous people help when they show obvious signs instead of trying to take the guns of law-abiding citizens based on the fear of guns of their neighbors and ex-spouses through red flag laws? Stokes continues:

Progressives see the same events we do, but they are determined to double down on their policies of leaving the innocent helpless and at the mercy of someone else showing up to help them. It doesn’t matter if it is there children, your children or parents, or you. No one must be allowed to defend them. They continually attempt to force law-abiding gun owners who have committed no crime to pay the consequences of people who have already committed several. It gets in the way of their ideology, and they love that way more than anything or anyone else. Why are they willing to sacrifice innocent souls on the alter of their ideology? Power.

And, when you get down to it, Stokes is completely right. Gun control has never been about saving lives. It has always been about preventing the opposition from being able to defend themselves from the power hungry.

This is a lesson that many people in our country desperately need to learn before it’s too late to save their own lives.



  1. I keep seeing it over and over again. These loud mouth anti-gun politicians don’t care about data that proves their solutions are ineffective or that people defend themselves with guns. They feel that they will be safe and in reality, unless they are being pursued by a truly driven stalker, angry friend or an actual professional killer, they are safer than the average person without the financial means to protect themselves or their property with physical and technological means.

    Politicians are provided armed security teams and live in the most elitist neighborhoods. I doubt anyone of them have to ever walk home late at night and worry about being raped or mugged. And nobody is going to walk into the White House or any government building to steal their watches, wallets, purses and jewelry. Even if they got pass some security measures, they wouldn’t make it very far.

    The amount of focus on banning firearms is obviously their most immediate concern as this is what they talk about more often than the environment or even the President. People are starving, in need of medical care, and suffering many torments, losing rights by the month, but all they care about is taking guns away supposedly for our safety. Come out in public, walk the streets and talk to me about public safety without bodyguards around you or police observing you. Meet me in a gun free zone and put your ass at the same level of risk as the citizens you want to disarm.

  2. Mainstream media doesn’t help matters at all either. Playing up every gun related crime until we’re sick of hearing about them, yet never a word about the “good guy with a gun” stories, which, by the way, are far more numerous than fatal shootings! Just playing their part in the control program I guess. Sad it is when the biggest watchdog of the powerful becomes the lapdog and propaganda machine for them.

  3. It’s about ushering in Socialism/Communism so that the GLOBAL ELITES can bring in the New World Order. WITHOUT guns means the POPULACE is HELPLESS against a TYRANNICAL government. This is ALSO why these people are pushing this “climate change crisis” HOAX, “Medicare for all” (except, of course, you if you happen to be a Conservative – that’s why there will be “death panels” to RATION care), etc. It’s ALL related. Either IMPEACH these politicians pushing this Treasonistic Traitor GARBAGE or vote them out of office in the 2020 elections. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

    • Right on!! And the so-called “Red Flag” laws weaponizes their agenda. Think about this: if you write a letter to your local newspaper criticizing anti-gun politicians and an “anti” becomes angry at what you wrote then the “Red Flag” law weaponizes that person, allowing him or her to make an anonymous phone call to police and everything goes downhill from there. As in the late and unlamented Soviet Union, one can be “demonized” by a person that he/she never set eyes on.

  4. FredK….I have never heard of anything as unconstitutional as “RedFlag Laws” And our former Governor of the Great State of Florida , Rick Scott signed one in as law just before he left as Governor. Are you going to do the same thing as Senator? I would not be surprised. This man really is not to be trusted anymore as a Republican, and neither should be Senator Rubio. Those two are “Turncoats”

  5. LIBERALS want guns gone so they can take all other rights away. See if the populous is unarmed they can take away rights with no trouble.

  6. The fact that not one single piece of Gun Control Legislation has accomplished anything but a further infringement upon the rights of Law Abiding Gun Owners is never revisited, convinces anyone with a brain the real goal of Progressives and Liberals. Yet the mantra is repeated by Progs and Libs every time a tragedy involving a firearm occurs, and they are aided and abetted by the Main Stream Propaganda Ministry every damn time.

    Personally, I’m fed up, and waiting for the marching orders. It’s time We the People remind those elected to serve of their abysmal failure.

    • Yep….for the little people while the elitists they think they are rule with an iron hand which is the very reason the 2nd amendment was implemented.
