Gun Control DOES NOT EQUAL Crime Control

Actually the Gun Registry is a sop to the Feminist Movement who insist that Men who own guns are a threat to them and therefore need to be constrained. Supported by other so called "Progressives" the lies and misrepresentation were allowed to sway spineless and ignorant politicians into acting on behalf of self serving special interest groups. The very worst of these was the National Association of Police Chiefs.

So along with the egomaniac Allan Rock and a host of other politico's with aspirations of riding the supposed storm of controversy and moral outrage. All law abiding owners of firearms were successfully painted with the big letters that said "Danger to Society".

This of course is complete BS but that never gets in the way of a bunch of self righteous zealots. Does it?

As for the crime stats, the Nations that choose to ban guns did it out of desperation that comes from having their cherished assumptions trashed by reality. What I mean is that in England and Australia and I believe in NZ as well their socially "progressive" approaches to law enforcement were not working and had not for decades. The response of governments was to make a big show of doing "the right thing" and taking the bogeyman out of the picture.

Because bogeymen (guns and gun owners) are only a problem that exists in the realm of imagination. That is, they are an imagined problem! The results of the action taken against them is completely the opposite of the intention.

The REAL problem is the lack of will to enforce existing laws and to address the failures of the so called "progressive" social and justice systems. Or taken one step further, the real problem is the false assumptions that liberal approaches to social problems and justice are effective when the are simply wrapped up in fantasy views of the world and not in reality.

Of course like most liberal fantasies , once the clowns put it into effect the price is born by the rest of us and in our special case because of the INCOMPETENCE of the Liberal government in managing the bureaucrats we got a $2Billion PLUS boondoggle to go along with a stupid and useless set of laws!

I've read more media comments today from raving anti-gun fanatics than I care to remember. They all seem to think spending billions of dollars for a registry which does NOTHING is a great idea. Are there that many stupid people or are the stupid ones more likely to spew such nonsense?

Some of each....it does not help that MSM like to jump on these stories as if the complainers actually knew what they were talking about.

When is the last time you saw a factual analysis of this issue in the MSM?
I'll bet NEVER and I'll bet you never will.
It suits the agenda of most media to fuel hysteria about firearms.
