Truth be told...
THAT IS WHAT HAS HAPPENED AMERICA
You're not being free & independent when you clutch your gun for safety out of fear. Hitler did not "disarm" his people as much as he fomented lies & deception to generate fear among the people. The biggest threat to our country is NOT criminals, but loss of our capacity for compassion through disconnection from our neighbors. We're suppose to work together as a society and resolve the "few" criminal elements, & NOT go back to the lawless old west where it's every person for himself.
Like I said, I'm not afraid. We will never eradicate crime. Society is getting worse and it will continue to the more liberal we become. Hitler DID disarm his people. That's a fact. And they were a lot more fearful their people started being exterminated. I decent from ancestors from many places and some of them were German jews. Guns don't kill people, people do.
And in the "lawless old west" there was a lot less crime! Back then no one ever said some bull about "well he had a terrible, low income upbring, I'm going to ask for leniency" back then everyone helped their neighbors. Voluntarily. But they darn sure weren't gonna let uncle Sam ROB them for 20% of their annual income. Man, I w8sh I was Laura Ingalls and if you haven't read her true account of the unsettled west you ought to
But did Hitler disarm his own people? No. In fact, the supposed “disarmament” campaign in Germany was the Law on Firearms and Ammunition passed in 1928, specifically to stop the growth of private militias, such as the right-wing brownshirts, and to prevent coup attempts such as the one Hitler attempted in 1923. Hitler’s rise to power and subsequent dictatorial domination was not the result of gun control. It was in spite of it.
There was a lot of lack of freedom in the wild west. People were dying right and left because of lawlessness and lack of local enforcement and protection. We have to work with our local and federal governments and vote for the right people to make our society effective and efficient.
That's the truth
My point was that we are bombarded with this.
Leah, I think it's refreshing to be "bombarded" by those who only value unbiased truths and personal stories, and where I can filter out all the rest. How else can we learn and understand the truths about the world around us? It's an avenue of growth and appreciation of life's stories...
What i am saying is we are bombarded with the glorification of violence, crime and evil in mainstream media. So we are bombarded with this.
Then, watch selectively...
You might have a clue if you realize that states that have open carry laws have the least amount of gun violence & generalized crime. People think twice when they know they can be shot back.
Truth be told, I was Bushed.
