In typical liberal fashion, the left is calling for more gun bans after the awful shooting in Colorado. They are also trying to use the shooting in Colorado as a reason for the Small Arms Treaty the president and Hilary are about to sign next week. They fail to see their own hypocrisy.
These same liberals who are wailing about gun control after the murder of 12 Americans, say absolutely nothing about the human rights violations in China at the point of an AK-47 assault rifle. MILLIONS of Chinese murdered by AK-47 assault rifles. The left is silent. This Small Arms Treaty does nothing to China -- its military will still have the power to murder innocent civilians and force abortions-- even on women who are 7-9 months pregnant.
Want gun control? Move to China. The Chinese population is unarmed and only its military have access to ANY weapons. The Chinese government's weapon of choice? The AK-47 assault rifle. Where is the outcry from the left on human rights violations in China? All I hear is S-I-L-E-N-C-E.
Help spread freedom around the world! Let's spread our second amendment to the rest of the world, so that they can defend themselves from tyrannical governments and be free from human rights violations! I bet many a Chinese citizen would love access to ANY gun... just so they could save their children, mother, wife or father from death by AK-47 at the hands of the Chinese military.
Further, let's look at the Colorado shooting. Liberals fail to see that guns were banned by law in that theater. The law abiding citizens followed the law. James Holmes did not follow the law. Perhaps, if one law abiding citizen was able to carry into the theater on that awful, dreadful night, lives could have been spared. Not an assault rifle, but a handgun. One shot through the gas mask and James Homes may have been a neutralized threat.
Canada and England, both have strict guns laws, yet they have higher violent crime per capita than the United States. Chicago, New York City, L.A., Washington D.C. -- all have very strict gun laws, but have the highest gun crime per capita. Could it be that criminals, who don't give a rat's patootie about gun laws take advantage of law abiding citizens? I mean, if you know the population can't be armed..... it makes for an easy target.
James knew he'd have easy targets at the theater. No one was allowed to carry a gun. He wasn't sure how long it would take for police to arrive, so he was protected with gear. Ultimately, he is a sick, sick man. He was hoping to kill people in his apartment complex with bombs and boobie traps -- not guns. If he had not had access to the weapons, he would have used other means to kill people at the theater that night. He was intent on killing.
Stop the hypocrisy, liberal left!
