Gun Control: The Real Suicide Pact
Last week, California’s Governor and 2024 Democratic Presidential nominee hopeful made a propaganda stop in Monterey Park following a mass shooting, what turned out to be only the first of four in California within one week. Naturally, he used the catastrophic loss of life as an excuse to push for more gun control. He even managed to sneak in a new one liner against the Second Amendment saying: “The Second Amendment is becoming a suicide pact.”
First off, this was a horrific tragedy in which 11 people lost their lives and nine more were injured. While it is disgusting for anyone to use this as an opportunity to promote a political agenda, it is sadly typical for California’s governor and follows the guiding principle of “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.”
You have to wonder how long the Governor had the “suicide pact” line sitting on the shelf waiting for just the right time to bring it out. Of course, it made absolutely no sense in the context of a violent, criminal attack on unarmed victims and has pretty much been panned as an unsuccessful attempt to turn it into a gun control catch phrase for the 2024 elections.
Of his comments in Monterey Park, one San Francisco newspaper headlined the Governor “swats down CBS reporter’s Second Amendment question.”
“Nothing about this is surprising. Everything about this is infuriating, the Second Amendment is becoming a suicide pact. Large capacity clips are just insane, there’s just no justification. Period. Full stop.”
When the reporter commented: “When you said the Second Amendment is a suicide pact, but there’s many people in this country that support the Second Amendment and are lawful gun owners.”
“Yeah, I have great respect. I have no ideological opposition with someone reasonably and responsibly owning firearms and getting background checks and being trained and making sure they’re locked so their kid doesn’t accidentally shoot themselves or a loved one.” “Absolutely not. Never suggested that. That’s what they immediately do. ‘He wants to take away your guns.’ I just want to take away weapons of war that are illegal on the streets of California and should be illegal across the United States.”
It’s worth noting California is the envy of every gun control zealot. The state boasts every single one of the gun control laws the Giffords Law Center says is necessary for “gun safety”. According to Giffords, “Overall, California has the strongest gun safety laws in the nation and has been a trailblazer for gun safety reform for the past 30 years.”. Keep in mind this is coming from the extremist gun control group who is responsible for writing and promoting these laws around the country, as well as providing pro bono legal defense work for them.
Of course, being best in gun control has absolutely no bearing on crime or public safety. As is the case around the country, it has the opposite effect. But that’s only part of the California solution. The state also boasts some of the most radical prosecutors who refuse to charge criminal acts and actively pursue releasing those previously convicted from prison, including the most violent offenders. California has become a haven for uncontrolled criminal activity from low level theft to murder.
So what gun control crimes were committed here? The handgun, called an “assault pistol” by the Los Angeles County Sheriff, was illegal in California, as was the so-called “large capacity magazine”, although enforcement in the state is currently on hold due to legal action. The homemade suppressor was also illegal in California as well as federally. All these gun laws and criminals simply ignore them to go after the people who follow them.
It’s also worth mentioning the Governor was, as he always is, traveling with his heavily armed law enforcement protection team, all of whom I guarantee were carrying non-California approved/off-roster handguns with “large capacity magazines” as well as “assault weapons”. But then again, the Governor is a well-documented hypocrite.
So why do I say Gun Control is the real suicide pact?
People are being told by their ideological leaders that guns are bad, and they don’t need them. They should disarm themselves for their own safety and the safety of everyone else. At the same time, these leaders, who surround themselves with the very tools of self-defense they are telling everyone else they don’t need, know exactly what is going to happen to the disarmed masses. Without the ability to protect themselves and a government unwilling and unable to do so, they will become victims. Following gun control kind of sounds like a suicide pact to me.
Meanwhile, the Governor has made it clear he and his fellow gun control lawmakers will continue to pass more gun control in California.
Remember, gun control does absolutely nothing to increase public safety and the answer to fix that shortcoming is always to implement more gun control.
