Gun control: It doesn't work. There is no research that proves it does. The facts are clear, it increases crime. Simon Fraser University professor Gary Mauser finds that a year after the British obediently surrendered 160,000 legal handguns, London muggings were up 53 percent, gun murders up 90 percent and robbery up more than 100 percent. By the year following, annual gun crimes overall had risen 39 percent.How long can democracy survive under the current thought? Because, in the end, gun control, public schools, and public healthcare, anti-tobacco laws, and Human Rights Commissions all come back to the same stunningly illiberal idea: ordinary people can't be trusted to make the right decision. The State will do it for you.
This pattern has continued. The rate of violent crime in England and Wales is more than double the United States. It is now more dangerous to walk the streets of London than New York.
On top of that, British Olympic shooting teams are now forced to practice their sport in another country! This is doubly absurd, for it discourages establishing positive role models for how firearms should be used.
In contrast, during the last decade, violent crime has dropped 40 percent in the United States as the number of firearms and states with concealed carry permits have increased.
They're even regulating your cable T.V. package. Or did you choose the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network yourself?
So why are we having an election? If you can't even be trusted not to shoot the coffee girl when she gets your order wrong, how can you possibly be clever enough to choose a government?
So, how long can democracy survive? Not long, I say. Let's just see.
