THE BANNING OF GUNS…”The real reason about the so-called ‘gun control’ isn’t about gun control but completely about control.”

The Violation of our 2nd Amendment
When John Kennedy was assassinated in 1963 the calls for gun control began to rise. In 1968 Martin Luther King was assassinated and the fires were stoked again. Then Robert Kennedy was assassinated and the calls to ban guns went into high gear. The liberal left has the idea that if guns were banned then there wouldn’t be any guns in the hands of criminals. The problem with that is that is why they are called criminals, they don’t obey the laws.
The real reason about the so-called ‘gun control’ isn’t about gun control but completely about control. All evidence concerning the banning of guns and the reduction of crime points to a drastic rise in crime when guns are banned. Look at these facts. Chicago, Washington, D.C. and New York City would be the safest places in the world, if that theory was correct. In 2012 Chicago ranked number one in the world for alpha cities for violent death using guns. Chicago has the strictest gun laws in the country yet they have 19.4 deaths per 100,000 due to gun violence. Last year 440 children of school age were shot, 60 of them dying. We decry the violence in Connecticut, as we should, but say nothing about the violence banning guns creates.
