If you ever have an opportunity to have an actual talk with an anti-2A person (as opposed to them unthinkingly shouting slogans at you at a protest), ask them a question: “What do you think will happen if you are actually able to ban all guns?”
They’ll likely say something along the lines of: “Well, since there won’t be any more guns, then, murder rates and rates of violent crime will go down because criminals won’t be able to get their hands on guns, so, the world will be all sunshine and roses with a unicorn thrown in, too!” I’m paraphrasing, of course.
But is that what really happens when guns are banned? No, of course, not. Any student of history knows that one of the first things that dictators do is to ban private citizens from having firearms. I’ll let you figure out why they do that.
But aside from government oppression and violence, what else happens when guns are banned? We don’t have to guess. We already know what happens. Just look at London, England. When guns were banned in London, violent crime rates increased (see here for information on that). The logical conclusion is that not having guns prevented law-abiding citizens from being able to defend themselves.
But anti-2A politicians and talking heads in the media refuse to actually put the blame were it belongs: on gun control for making people victims. Chris Summers tells us what the situation is like there, now:
More than 280 people in England and Wales lost their lives to homicide with a bladed instrument—mostly knives—between April 2021 and March 2022, the highest number since records began in 1946, according to a report by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
The number of homicides rose by 19 percent, to 282, over the previous year. The increase included an 18 percent rise in the deaths of young men, with the number of male victims aged 16 to 17 years jumping to 24 from 10.
Those are huge increases. So, what are they blaming those increases on? Summers continues:
Patrick Green, chief executive of the Ben Kinsella Trust, an anti-knife crime charity, blamed the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdowns for making young people feel more “vulnerable.”
Green said: “As we emerged from COVID restrictions and those restrictions were lifted, we were seeing more evidence of young people made more vulnerable by COVID. Gangs are particularly good at picking up on vulnerabilities, are quick to pick them up and indeed lure young people and exploit them in criminal acts. We think there could be a link there.”
Now, look, I’m not suggesting that many people, especially those living in households which are struggling financially, haven’t had massive increases in stress due to the lockdowns from the pandemic and the pandemic media blitz itself. And we know that increases in stress do correlate to increases in violence in general. (It’s interesting to realize, though, that those lockdowns and emphasis on the pandemic which caused that stress were pushed especially hard by anti-2A politicians and media.)
What none of these people are asking, though (and they should be asking this if they want real solutions), is: Why aren’t we hearing about corresponding increases in violence during the pandemic in areas without gun control?
The fact that we aren’t hearing them address that issues really does tell you everything that you need to know about why you should own a firearm for personal safety.
I don’t talk to anti gunners because I’d get a more coherent response from a table lamp.
You didn’t say anything about why the US hasn’t been invaded? It’s because many citizens are well armed. And the fact as the insurrection has demonstrated that our lawful government could be taken over by a fascist Dictator or a Communist regime.
We the people need to be armed, Just in case
Gun control in HISTORY has only lead to GENOCIDE …
MJ in fact the Japanese emperor during World War 2 said that they wouldn’t invade America because there is a gun behind every blade of grass. Why don’t the anti-gunners try to resolve the problem. Let’s go back to the death penalty whenever a murder is committed, with or without a gun? Sentence to be carried out within a year of the trial. If a firearm is used in a crime, it’s a mandatory ten years added on to the prison sentence.
Let’s punish the criminal instead of the honest gun owner.
Thing is RJG. I seen a video of a journalist after listening to one of our so called politicians say to him that his measure was not aimed at the criminal. The so called politician flat said NO. It’s aimed at the law abiding. With the W.E.F. and so called politicians like this one that are not even trying to hide their intentions. it may take more then just talking. they do not care anymore. After they pushed in part of the 68 GUN CONTROL ACT and got even gun owners to go along with the compromise. They now want anyone and everyone to either give them up willingly. Or make them a felon which is totally ILLEGAL.
RJR Spot on! Thank you
Actually It was Admiral Yamatto.
That quote goes to Admiral Yamamoto.
No guns, no freedom. Know guns, know Freedom!

Banning all guns here in the U.S.? is like ringing a dinner bell to all the real killers out n’ about looking for their next victim. Every red blooded gun-owning American would go straight savage mode. The real reason is simple we would be like sheep about to be slaughtered by ower own government. They gave us up along time ago. They want total control. There’s a true saying, There is order in chaos. This is the type of government we have at this very moment. In essence, it wouldn’t be beneficial for the government to try and disarm us. Total pandemonium is looming.
ONLY A DUMMY , STUPID ENOURG TO BELIEVE THE UNITED NATIONS , WEF & BUILDERBERG GANG , PUSHES THE ANTI-2A BULLSHIT .
Did Australia ban guns?
Sort of… just try your question at Wikipedia. I bet money if you ask correctly it spits out the correct answers!!
Wikipedia is taken over by soro$ now. Pay attention !!
Use infogalactic.com instead, or read only from trusted websites.
BTW. Duckduckgo was corrupted too, in March 2022 !
They still protect your privacy, but block political content the leftists are trying to silence.

The worst criminals are the politicians and citizens who want to destroy our country and constitution. The politicians are criminals living off the backs of the working people. If they weren’t criminals they would have term limits and wouldn’t be giving themselves large salary increases and other benefits that the common man doesn’t receive.
When you have only seconds to live the cops are only minutes away (TRUE FACT).actually you.re dead before they get there.
Its better to have a gun and not need it>than to need one and not ave it??Also a true fact. But if you have a gun know how and when to use it.It is a tool.
