"They would rather everybody become a VICTIM that has to be rescued by the government."

In their typical Hegelian dialectic fashion (ie: problem-reaction-solution paradigm), the left seeks to limit individual rights in order to create a society of victims. A society of victims is thereby reliant on their massive socialist entity-god: The State. The State is the organ for their heavy-handed enforcement of victimhood. For example, ensuring law abiding citizens don't have access to high-end weaponry while ignoring the fact that criminals will still acquire said weapons (ie: they trust criminals with guns more than us - which is too bad for them, since we don't need their trust)


“It’s at times like these with Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma that more people wish they had been prepared in advance. You might wonder why didn’t more people prepare? To advance part of the answer to that is the mainstream media has been mocking preppers for years. Seriously. The mainstream media has been mocking and defaming preppers and calling it hoarding. “Oh, you shouldn’t hoard supplies from other people. Oh, wait a second. If you stock up on food and water in normal times and there’s no run on supplies, that’s not really hoarding. Yes, that’s just preparing in advance. But you see here’s an angle that most people haven’t thought about. The mainstream media is mostly liberal. You know left-wing politics is all about collectivism. It’s about eliminating individual liberties and individual self-reliance…”


talknetwork.com...

That's right, because if *some* of us are prepared, it throws a monkey wrench in the false-notion that "there was nothing more we could've done" when in fact there are plenty more they could've done. Perhaps, for example, you should've purchased a food/ammo supply instead of upgrading to the newest iPhone (6 or 7 times, no less...)

A good example is the recent mass shooting in Florida. The left continuously seeks to limit our lawful access to firearms, while ignoring the fact that it was their "gun free" anti-gun laws that caused these issues in the first place. The left is the reason why at least TWO staff members had to shield children with their bodies in a futile last-ditch attempt at saving lives, instead of simply drawing their lawfully carried firearm and ending the threat right then and there.

Instead, the shooter was permitted to continue their onslaught unchallenged. To present a credible challenge to an active shooter, you must be armed. Period.

In any case, the left's irrational and argument-less emotionally-driven calls for the destruction of individual rights is highly disturbing. I actually had an ATS member chastise me in another thread yesterday for daring to bring up facts/logical arguments with nullified their anti-gun rant. Not surprising, in the least. This is the same crew who seeks to ban free speech (calling it "hate speech") and ensure that criminals can make the rest of us victims like them.

Don't accept their false choices. We are the only truly free nation on Earth for a reason and have a duty to uphold the legacy of freedom that was hard-EARNED through the blood and tears OUR ancestors passed on to us. We are the keepers of liberty and freedom, and do our future generations a disservice by allowing liberalism to destroy individualism.

Thanks for your input, it means so much to me.


You still won't be touching my firearm(s)



....so do you care to actually refute/rebut anything, or will you just be adding the typical leftist collective opinion not backed up by any facts/information/sources..?

You are 100% correct. In fact, showing a small comparison with the Hurricane response was something i never personally thought of before.

I don't think they even care about the guns or the kids.

I think they have some warped belief that they are punishing Trump voters.

Liberals are freakin' nuts dude.

"They would rather everybody become a VICTIM that has to be rescued by the government."

We've seen how successful this has been for the last 28 years.

In the 90s mass shootings should have ended.

It didn't.

We've saw how successful that was for Katrina, and Sandy.


Bottom line.

If your too dumb or lazy to take care of your own snip?

Ya deserve the Darwin Award.

You know you didn't actually make any points to be refuted

Just meaningless drivel about what you think the left wants with some vomit inducing American exceptionalism thrown in.

Maybe.

But it still doesn't refute my original point.

Some ideologies do not value freedoms, individual freedoms.

This is a fact that cannot be disputed.

They sure don't.

They always expect mommy and daddy to come bail them out.

Freedom means even failure.

That builds character which is something modern society serverely lacks.

None of them do, that's why they're ideologies.

As far as I believe it's still a free country and one can spend their money any way one want's too! I also believe the gov. looks at it like everybody is potentialy a "unibomber" type personality instead of just trying to protect oneself from a hurricane or alien invasion ect. the gov. isn't going to take everybodys guns! less guns are not stop a kook from going on a deadly rampage
terrible as that is! mental illness isn't going away anytime soon short of putting some type of happy gass in the air to passify everyone!

Who gives a snip.

In this country we have the Bill of Rights, and the 14th amendment.
