Comments on: Obama, guns and media control http://blogs.reuters.com/bernddebusmann/2011/03/18/obama-guns-and-media-control/ Tue, 31 Mar 2015 01:18:20 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Jimmie Portwine http://blogs.reuters.com/bernddebusmann/2011/03/18/obama-guns-and-media-control/#comment-3001 Thu, 09 Oct 2014 15:07:44 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/bernddebusmann/?p=180#comment-3001 I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Teach shooting skills and firearm safety in the schools. This will instill respect for firearms, reduce the chance of accidental shootings, and remove some of the allure and mystery of guns. It is also a good way for kids to learn that irresponsibility can have real consequences. Of course, it’ll never happen because most soccer Moms will never stand for it. Shooting skills are on par with swimming skills: you’ll probably never actually NEED the skills, but it’s something that a well-rounded person should acquire.

Our ATF who is supposed to be stopping this sort of nonsense. The NRA has called this one right. Why participate in a anti-gun debate with hostile groups who can’t even monitor their own agencies but want to over regulate the only group who abides by the law…

This argument is offered up regularly by gun advocates, though it is clearly untrue.

Make no mistake… it is FAR more difficult to kill a person with a knife. It’s very physical, very bloody, and very intimidating to the untrained. Killing with a knife requires a physical gruesomeness that the vast majority of Americans could never muster. It is also dramatically more difficult to kill a number of individuals with a knife. Killeen, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tuscon… these senseless acts could never have been accomplished at the hand of a knife toter.

The so-called “social conservatives” have much more in common with other totalitarians in that they think freedom is the enemy and the root of all evil. Take away freedom and you are on the road to social virtue.

People who *DO* believe in freedom value freedom of expression as well as the right to bear arms. This very rarely includes bankers or other “financial” professionals or people in law enforcement. Telling lies, whether directly or indirectly, destroys freedom and peace and promotes social slavery.

Just look at Russia. Israel. China. Vietnam. Mexico. Cuba. The world is full of “paradises” where there is plenty of gun (and many other kinds of) control. They don’t report bad news either. We don’t report financial scams which is why the USA does not have any, right?

NRA types are scared scared scared – (need I say gutless wonders who are firmly convinced that they cannot even manage their own lives?) We need sensible regulations and will eventually get non sensible ones when the NRA’s crazy stance finally breaks. What to do?

No government, or group is going to get our guns taken away. Ever. They will continue to try, and that is fine, this is America and they have the right. Write about it, converse about it, complain about it, etc…

THEY WILL NEVER GET OUR GUNS. EVER. Spend some of this energy, produced by this kind of topic, and use it to help those affected by the shift in the earth crust. New Zealand, Japan,etc..it will be better served. One more time…
THEY WILL NEVER GET OUR GUNS.EVER.

You might as well complain about the color of the ocean. Perhaps you could bend your considerable talent to analyzing real problems that both effect more people and might be solved.

It is sad that so many ignore history and the desperate need for real guns, not just hunting guns in the hands of private citizens of every country to prevent the rise of dictators who enslave and kill millions. But then again guys like Bernd prefer the relative calm of leaders like Burma, Kumar Rouge, Red Chinese, Chavez, Gaddafi etc. ad nausea who could not exist without “gun control”. Bernd and his ilk prefer passivity and enslavement because it is less troubling to the simpleton minds of people coasting on the freedoms brought to them by patriots of all nations. Wonder why guys like Hitler, Stalin, Chavez, Gaddafi come to power? Look no further than the mentality of people like Bernd Debusmann and the gun control wackos that ignore history repeating itself with the deaths and slavery of millions on their guilty hands.
