A suburban neighborhood of New York City has published a list of gun owners in that community. This information was put on an interactive map for all to see. One of the comments put regarding this was now the criminals have a map disclosing who does not have guns in the house. The anti-gunners have provided a hit list for criminals.
When I read about these things I wonder what these people are trying to accomplish. One thing I would like to emphasize these anti gun people have a right to collect public information and publish it. That being said they are apparently trying to demonize people who have firearms. Perhaps they thought that they would make a targets out of the evil gun people.
There is an old saying and that is “If guns are outlawed only criminals will have guns.” This has become a truism in light of the gun confiscations in Australia and the UK. Criminals by definition break the law. We may end up having a situation where criminals are encouraged to use guns when the law abiding have no guns. The murder rate in Australia spiked when the guns were taken. Also, they had to come up with new laws to cover armed home invasions.
It has always interested me that when they talk about taking guns they want to take guns away from people who do not use guns for criminal activity while constructively ignoring the people who use guns for crime. If guns are taken can you imagine the value of a firearm on the black market?
I remember there was an article about the firearms tun in in the UK when a Member of Parliament lamented that he had no idea that the criminals would not turn in their firearms. He apparently was not paying attention to all sides of the issue. This comment was made when they realized that there were 3 million illegal guns on the street possessed by criminal elements. In the UK and other places the Islamic wackos I believe will support the gun turn in. This could seriously result in an armed Islamic military force within many countries that have a rapidly growing Muslim population. The head Imam in the UK has stated that they will do what they have to do to seize the UK from the non-believers to include killing them.
Islamic terrorists will not turn in their firearms and other criminals will follow suite.
I was listening to a politician who claimed that he is a gun owner and believes that something has to be done about all the guns. He also mentioned that he likes to hunt with his guns. Well, what a guy! He likes to hunt with his guns. The second amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is a right to keep and bear arms period. The real underlying reasoning for the 2nd Amendment is that people not only have a right to defend themselves they have a duty to defend themselves.
