As soon as I saw the news that terrorist had used guns to attack unarmed citizens in France I said to a friend, “just watch the anti 2nd Amendment crowd will find a way to call for gun control in the U.S. even though this happened across the ocean in France!” Sadly, but predictably, I was 100% accurate. It wasn’t even a day later that calls for yet more civil liberties infringements should be applied to U.S. citizens because of what happened in France! I repeat France!
Liam Neeson, despite making millions of dollars glorifying guns on the silver screen is one of the key people calling for more gun control in the U.S. because of this. I am not really even sure what to do with that information. The bottom line is you simply can’t fix stupid. You can’t negotiate with crazy.
First, like most western European countries France has some of the strictest ownership laws regarding firearms of anywhere in the world! Yes, the entire world. Even a bulk of their police don’t carry guns! Yet despite that terrorist were able to use the criminal networks and black market to smuggle guns into the country. Of course predictably they met almost no resistance as they proceeded to walk along killing unarmed and defenseless people.
Yes, to you idiots calling for more gun control this is what happens. You take away guns from all the people who follow the laws and then wonder why you have massive body counts when criminals steal or smuggle guns and kill all the unarmed people.
Mr. Neeson seems to think that because there are so many guns in the U.S. that attack would have been worse here than there with all of their gun control. That is so stupid it actually defies all rational thought and any semblance of logic!
How would 4 terrorist shoot any more guns than the ones they possessed in France? I have been a shooter for a long time and I have yet to figure out how to shoot multiple guns at the same exact time. Plus as pointed out before they used the black market to get these guns so if they wanted more they could have had them. Period.
What would have happened in most places in the U.S. is a CCW holder would have pulled out a gun and fired back! They may have even killed these guys before they murdered a dozen people! That is what happens in a country that has more guns and doesn’t disarm all of their
subjects “citizens”. They shoot back. They are not soft targets.
I have come to the conclusion these people are simply too stupid to debate any longer. They can’t even use rational logic in forming an opinion. Their positions make zero sense. I suppose we must continue to answer them when they spout this garbage because we have equally stupid individuals in the media that actually think this drivel is newsworthy and that these flat earthers of the gun debate should be given serious consideration.
How do you intelligently debate someone that can’t even put together logical and debatable points? I imagine this is how early intelligent people felt when confronting morons who still believed the earth was flat. You made logical, fact based, statistically proven and well reasoned points and they would respond with “You are wrong, the world, she is flat!”. Like I said before you simply can’t fix stupid.
