Central issue is value of human life
With the recent shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, there have been the renewed calls from liberal Democrats and their mainstream media mouthpieces for more gun control. Even back in December 2018, The New York Times reported there had been 39,773 firearm-related deaths in 2017.
But will gun control really solve the problem? Isn’t the real issue of how little value this society puts on human life in general?
Case in point, according to abort73.com, there were approximately 892,000 abortions in 2017, which was more than 22 times higher than the firearms deaths. Yet many of the same people who cry out for gun control will defend the woman’s so-called “right to choose.”
Can any of them seriously deny the fact that more than 50 million unborn children have died in abortion clinics over the past 40 years?
It is my opinion these liberal Democrats have no more regard for human life than either of the recent shooters or the operators of an abortion clinic. Rather, they have a thirst for power and know an armed citizen is an obstacle to that power.
Socialist icon Vladimir Lenin stated this case well when he said, “A man with a gun can control 100 without one.”
Remember, the key word in gun control is “control.”
