Two Out Of Three Americans Either Own A Gun Or Think They May Own One In The Future


Why Gun Rights Advocates Start With An Advantage…..

In spite of decades a propaganda from the mainstream media, Hollywood, the support of one of two major political parties, and ten, if not hundreds of millions of dollars of support from billionaires, gun control groups have not succeeded in imposing UK like gun control.  Any other “movement” with this level of support would have succeeded long ago.  So why has the gun control push fallen short?

    I tend to believe that the lack of density of population in our nation defeats the notion of strict gun control. Think of the issue like it is an airport.

    If an airport is a hub, it is congested and the risks of planes bumping into each other is great. There is a need for control here.

    Next consider the rural airport. Often this is a grass field where a plane or two a day land or take off and as long as you are responsible you are safe and no control is needed.

    The fact is that America is not crowded except for a few places. For the most part, Americans go about their business and rarely do events regarding firearms arise that are of concern. Our self discipline and sense of personal responsibility are such that we can mange gun ownership by ourselves.

    The worries of the gun control crowd are focused primarily on those crowded areas and in those areas people do not grow up with the same values and senses of responsibility that the rest of America does. People who want gun control are driven by fear. We are not afraid of firearms here in ‘flyover country’ which makes up almost the entire United States.

    You cannot enact a law driven by fear if the people who to be subject to it are not afraid.

      I think it has more to do with mentality. Australia is even more sparsely populated than the US, yet they enacted ineffectual gun control just like the UK.

        The fundamental difference between the US and Australia is that we set out to be a free and independent nation after the revolutionary war and Australia was a commonwealth controlled by Great Britain until later years and they still are part of the crown.

    People do not like to foreclose their own options, especially for important subjects such as personal defense. The problem with the UK, unlike America, is that there was no effective advocacy for being armed. If people simply do not have enough information, they cannot make the correct choices.

    In America, enough people were saying that they would kill anyone who attempted to disarm them. Even a lot of gun haters can see the problem with that; civil war does not benefit anybody. Better to “let sleeping dogs lie”…
