The citizenry is manipulated by the bluntest instruments available to government elites: economic depression, continuous warfare and continuously tightening authoritarian regulation and taxes, and the meme of bleeding-heart-liberal true believers upon any incident of violence involving guns is that the guns owned by tens of millions of responsible gun owners should be taken away.
Apparently ignorant of or willingly disbelieving history, suffering from Stockholm syndrome, the true believers cannot imagine that citizens have been disarmed before every dictatorship and it could happen here. First they will come for everyone but them. The hypocrites claim that tens of millions of responsible gun owners are selfish, ignorantly clinging to their guns and Bibles, meanwhile the hypocrites want government to take away the guns and rights of tens of millions so that their ignorant little minds are not troubled by the irresponsible few, and, they foolishly believe, they can be protected from armed criminals by the government.
These same bleeding-heart true believers, useful idiots as they are, support the moral equivalence of a broad range of behaviors intolerable to those tens of millions of citizens. Anything goes in violent and sexually explicit movies, video games and even classrooms endorsing the morally illicit real life behaviors of celebrities. Hollywood is a top-down bread and circus meme machine for media, politics, and Madison Avenue marketing, the 20th and 21st century version of the Roman coliseum, proselytizing youth worldwide to the gladiator life, glorifying the celebrity moment in the sun.
In early May, 2009, in the College Park neighborhood in Atlanta, two armed criminals broke into a house party of students.
After confiscating the group’s valuables, the invaders split the men and women up into different rooms.
Witnesses say the perpetrators then counted their rounds and discussed if they had “enough” ammunition.
The students believed the gunmen were going to rape and murder the entire group of students, who were celebrating a birthday at the end of the semester.
However, one male student, whose identity is being protected by police and local media, retrieved a handgun from his backpack and fired at the thug who was detaining the men.
(That is: One smart student had prepared for a night in College Park, Atlanta.)
The criminal fled the apartment under the threat of injury and never returned.
The student continued on into the girls’ room, found the other thug, 23-year-old Calvin Lavant, preparing to rape his first victim.
The student exchanged gunfire with Lavant, lethally wounding him in the process. Lavant fled through a window and died in front of his apartment, only one building away.
One of the female students was injured during the exchange, but doctors expect a full and complete recovery.
So what’s the point?
A student saved the girls from rape, and saved the whole group of 10 people (including himself) from murder . . . and he did it with a handgun.
This is a perfect example of how ludicrous “big city gun laws” are. What if this had happened in New York, Chicago, or any of the other big cities that criminalize their citizens’ self defense?
Yes, we would be reading an entirely different story from Atlanta — one so horrendous that we would shudder at the very words.
If Connecticut’s gun laws were not so restrictive and instead Americans were universally trained in proper use of arms as are the Swiss and Israelis, then perhaps the deranged murderer would have demurred and sought help. Or perhaps an armed student or teacher could have quickly prevented the slaughters in Connecticut and Columbine, or ended it quickly as was done by this heroic armed student in College Park … and similarly done by armed students in Israel, and many other examples. But that alternative ending requires an open mind and changing the morally relevant meme of the rich and powerful who don’t want opposition to their global plans.
