That a form of socialism is being foisted on the people of Virginia should come as no surprise. Socialism is an anti-Christ system that more folks need to understand.
If you look, over the years, at those who have promoted gun control, you find that the vast majority of them, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and a vast host of others, were socialists or communists of one stripe or another. Socialists usually have agendas that are not always wildly popular with those living under their regimes and so gun control is one way of “protecting lives” in such countries–socialist lives, nobody else’s because socialists don’t care about any lives but their own.
That being the case, what we see now going on in Virginia is running true to socialist form. You have a newly elected socialist regime there that, in order to be able to fulfill its socialist agenda, feels the population at large would be better off without the dubious benefit of firearms to protect themselves from the gentle ministrations of the newly elected socialists. The socialists feel they are much safer if you are not armed!
An article by Richard W. Rahn on the Washington Times for Jan 13th contains some insightful commentary on this. Rahn observed: “The governor and the Democratic legislators in Virginia are proposing restrictive gun laws, which would make it much more difficult for law-abiding Virginians to defend themselves, as well as taking away some of their basic liberty. The Democrats are doing this, claiming it will save lives (which is rather ironic coming from a governor who endorsed infanticide–‘as long as the infants are made comfortable’–for newborn babies if the mother so decides). Note, the anti-gun mafia ignores all of the lives that are saved by people being able to protect themselves by having guns. (The Texas church shooting a couple weeks ago being exhibit one. Perhaps several dozen lives were saved by the fact that some members of the congregation had legal guns and were immediately able to put a stop to the madman.) There is considerable evidence that more guns in the hands of the law-abiding save, rather than cost lives..”
Rahn continued: “Almost all mass homicides are committed by mentally ill people or terrorists…Again, terrorists and the homicidal mentally ill are a real problem, and their behavior is not going to change because some physical objects they can use to kill people are made illegal.”
Rahn then notes something people should reflect on, and not enough do. He says: “It is no coincidence that many anti-gun zealots are also big government types, including socialists, who get their highs from taking the property and liberty of others…If Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam… seems to have deliberately misdiagnosed the problem and prefers to focus on the fake solution of gun restrictions which reduces the ability of the people to protect themselves, rather than dealing with the mentally ill and terrorists.”
Spending some time on the internet this afternoon, I came across people who couldn’t seem to figure out why Northam was doing what he was doing – and didn’t he realize what a burden he was putting on the folks in Virginia? Reading a few of their naïve comments is the kind of thing that makes you start talking to yourself.
I thought to myself “Come on folks, get real. Of course he realizes what he is doing to the people in Virginia. Do you really think he cares?“
I’ve got a revelation for you all. He couldn’t care less what he’s doing to folks in Virginia. If he manages to leave them all defenseless–so what? Since most of them are not socialists they are just not important! All he needs them for is the tax money he can siphon out of them and to make sure they all put their kids in Virginia’s public schools so they can be socialized beyond recognition. Other than that they are useless to Northam. And his socialist state legislature is already on record regarding how little they think of the voters in Virginia. According to some in the legislature, the voters are all “gun nuts” or crazy, or like “little kids.” Do you honestly think that legislators with these kinds of sentiments give a tinker’s damn about the ordinary citizens of Virginia? Let me clue you in–they don’t!
You are nothing to them but sheep to be sheared – and the first thing you are to be “sheared” of is your ability to defend yourselves.
So many foolish people harbor the grave misconception that, socialism, somehow, is a caring and compassionate system. Their common sense has been tampered with. Socialism is a system that exploits people, all the while telling them how much it cares about them. Talk to people from socialist and communist countries as I have and you will soon realize that socialism is nothing more than a way to exploit those that live under it. It is an anti-Christ system that needs to be resisted and exposed for the total fraud it really is.
