Cartoon Shows What Is Behind Every Democrat Gun Control Push

December 3, 2019   |   by James G. Dalton

They say that a picture can be worth a hundred or a thousand words and the A.F. Branco cartoon below is a perfect example of that.

The Democrats are going nuts pushing gun control, claiming there is a white supremacist with an automatic weapon hiding behind every corner.

Democrats and the media know that’s totally untrue so what’s behind there latest gun control push? Money, and lots of it.

Exactly right!

All Democrats REALLY care about is raising campaign cash off of tragedy. They know gun control has no hope of passing, so it’s all about the Benjamin’s.

Speaking of gun control, here’s the truth about mass shootings in America:

Everything You’ve Heard About Mass Shootings is Wrong, Here Are the Facts

The Democrats and the media would have you believe that the country is in the middle of an epidemic of mass shootings led by white supremacists.

Democrats and the media would also have you believe that the only possible way to stop this epidemic is to immediately suspend the Second Amendment and confiscate all semi-automatic weapons.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

While the three mass shootings that have occurred over the past several weeks are indeed horrific and tragic, they do not represent an “epidemic” of mass shootings.

In fact mass shootings that affect innocent and random people are exceedingly rare in our nation of almost four hundred million people.

Consider these facts about mass shootings via American Greatness:

Fact: There were 387 deaths from mass shootings in the United States in 2018 (defined as four or more shot—not necessarily killed—at one time). Of those, most were regular criminals as we expect to see in gang-related drive-bys, bar fights, and a strangely large number of shootings at parties (like this one). About 100 deaths were the result of the random, psycho-killer shootings that dominated news coverage for days and weeks at a time. Mercifully, those are quite rare. But that’s not the impression we are given by the news coverage.

Fact: There are more privately owned guns in the United States than ever before and the number of murders has been declining for decades and has been at or near a multigenerational low for several years. More guns, less crime.

Fact: There were 660 murders in Chicago in 2017. That’s nearly twice the number from mass shootings in the whole country and six or seven times the number murdered by random psychos mass-shooters. Chicago has some of the strictest gun control in the country. Maybe it’s not the guns.

Fact: There are between 1.2 million and 1.5 million defensive uses of guns per year in the United States. How many more murders, rapes, thefts, and assaults would there be without armed citizens?

Fact: There were more than 70,000 opioid deaths last year. That’s 4.5 times the total number of murders and 700 times the number of people killed by psycho mass-shooters. Yet, liberals want to enact far-reaching gun control laws and prevent Americans from defending themselves.

One hundred random deaths of innocent bystanders by mass shooters is by any measure a horrific loss of life, and devastation to countless families.

Yet in a country of 400 million people, it is hardly a crisis that requires millions of innocent gun owners, who have never committed any crime, to lose their rights.

Democrats famously refuse to let any crisis go to waste, but calmer heads must prevail during a time of high emotion.

If any additional laws are needed to prevent mass shootings are needed they should be carefully deliberated in a slow and methodical process using facts, not hyperbole and emotional appeals.

That said I personally cannot imagine any law that would deter a criminal bent on causing harm. The only thing that can stop a person like that is a good guy with a gun.

    I believe the take-them-all-away Democrats have had a lot of support for their pogrom in various fashions by one Bloomberg($).
    A slightly different thought though. If they can’t get enough support to just take them, then bankrupt the manufacturers.

    Obviously why they are now working so hard to get around manufacturer protective legislation.

    What about the manufacturer suing those who use their product in an improper manner like shooting a person except when in the duty as a law officer, the protected right of self defense or in military service. There may be other proper uses defined as well.

    BB guns, air guns or powder propelled weapons could be sold with a specific sort of contract similar to that we are subject to with most software. If a purchaser, owner or user should use the product improperly and/or allow such use they have agreed to suit for damages by the manufacturer, supplier, seller, etc. After all there is always a public image harm when such an event occurs. It may even be possible to sue the individual(s) responsible for the improper use without it being part of a purchaser agreement. But at least they could repossess the product and sue just as they do for software abuse. It would also be likely to make the actual person/purchaser much more responsible for not allowing unauthorized use.
    I would see that as an acceptable form of gun control. (it would also be a measure outside of criminal law.)

      I thought this too. I thought about the role the internet plays and what has been in the past concerning the harm to public specific individuals and then how this gun control issue is affecting the legal industry … not the underground illegal sales. The Dems don’t care because the Democratic run cities have police and courts doing their will. When boxes of guns are found in empty warehouses or near railroad tracks and are turned in there’s a big issue to deal with. Firstly those that turn it in, are not only subject to questions but harrassment and then these same guns wind up right back in the general area in which it was originally found by the same persons. That means the police put them back there, even though they are banned from the city. So what’s really going on? They are there free to any who are of criminal mindset to use at will on an unarmed city of citizens. The Democrats run these cities and use propaganda on media to spread fears. Just like with fake climate change that has them in a frenzy. I’m over 65 and this was pushed in school 55 years ago and the crisis would be in 20-25 years. I know the environment needs help and protection, but there’s nothing we can do to change climates. They have experimented by seeding clouds and it poisons crops and water we ingest as well as our livestock and all other living creatures including bees that pollinate. They do nothing to stop this and just say its conspiracy theory. But even now there’s proof about these new vaccines which are primarily produced in China that they are tainted drugs, knowingly.
      Think about it. We are fighting enemies from within. A new kind of warfare. All these will be revealed this coming decade. May we find ways to make life much better in the USA, even though the rest of the world may not tackle these issues as well as we do. It matters.

      Are the Democrats so stupid to believe that everyone believes the lies they spew consistantly. people have the tendency to be to lazy to figure out who to vote for they ask their friends or relatives who to vote for they don’t really know themselves, I have on suggestion to get the truth you need to know how your representive votes while in office thats the only way to find the truth for your self there is a web site that has all that information you really need to make the right decision that web site is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ma_x4XYBey0
      One more thing the Democrats want to remove all guns which is just what the communists want so if they come to point of take over there wont be any resistance to their take over do the citizens of communist countries have guns not one, all the guns have been removed for citizens forever which was a smart move on their part you don’t have to wonder where the Democrats stand on that issue.
      The citizens should take a good look at the communist manifisto which was entered here is that memo.

    You (Government) take away The Second Amendment from The People of The United States? This country will have more crime to include murders, out of control gangs, police fatalities then ever before! Not to mention the statement,”All Good Men Must Come To The Aide Of Their Country” will NOT HAPPEN! This Country got its “INDEPENDENCE” from “The Militia” which was made up from farmers, boot-leggers and even pastors that brought havoc to Cornwallis and suppressed his advancement of his British Army. What if America were to be invaded once again? If not from another government, but terrorist organization, drug cartels or even some crazed religious cult from another land?
    The People who love this Country, want to protect it and their families and they are the same who would help any law enforcement or military engaged in ANY CRISIS!

    THE DEMOCRAT LEADERS IN CONGRESS AND THE SENATE ARE 1/2 OF THE FRONT LINE
    IN THIS ABSURD ANTI GUN PUSH.
    THE OTHER HALF OF THIS LINE CONSISTS OF THE LEADERS OF MAINSTREAM MEDIA
    TOGETHER THEY FORM A CACAPHONY
    CHORUS ABOUT THE HORRORS OF
    LAW ABIDING CITIZENS OWNING FIREARMS.
    THESE TWO GROUPS ARE PROPPED UP BY
    THE INSIDE CORE OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER.
    I ONCE READ THAT RUSSIA IS MOSTLY
    A GUN FREE PLACE, BUT THEY STILL
    HAVE A CONSIDERABLE MURDER LOG.
    IT SEEMS THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF
    THESE KILLINGS ARE COMMITTED WITH
    KNIVES.
    THIS EXAMPLE WOULD SUPPORT THE IDEA THAT IT IS THE BAD GUY WHO IS THE KILLER AND NOT THE WEAPON.
    THE ONLY LOGICAL REASON WHY GOOD PEOPLE SHOULD BE DEPRIVED OF GUNS IS IF
    THE EXISTING GOVERNMENT OR A GROUP
    GRADUALLY MOVING INTO A POSITION OF
    POWER HAVE INTENTIONS OF SETTING UP
    A TOTALITARIAN SYSTEM AND THE ONLY
    MEANINGFUL THING THAT COULD STOP
    SUCH A MOVE IS THAT BODY OF GOOD
    AND WELL ARMED CITIZENS WHO WON’T GIVE UP THE RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS WHICH THEY AND THEIR FAMILIES ENJOY, AS WELL AS WILL THEIR DESCENDANTS,
    THE DEVIL REALLY REALLY WANTS THE GUNS.
    AND IT IS OUR FATHER CREATOR’S WORK THAT GOOD FOLKS DO BY DEPRIVING SATAN’S CHILDREN FROM TAKING THEM.

    My son, at 12, came back from school, ( common core idiocy), and told me he could not see a future for him and his generation. The teachers were spewing their propaganda and causing children raised in balanced homes, where discussion about anything were common, to doubt what kind of future the country would be in. Many of those children are psychologically unbalanced still. What is very disturbing is THE FACT that most of the shooters who committed those mass shootings were democrats. NEVER publicized by the media. Do your research and find out for yourself. It is all there for the finding. The democrats are just like HITLER, who said that a people with guns is a danger for the leader of the country. Look at all the democrat-led cities of the US: bankrupt, trashed, with criminals with guns doing as they wish, even though those cities and states have the STRONGEST ANTI-GUN LAWS. What can we learn? CARRY and be ready to use.
