Liberalism and Gun Control
In February of 2018 in Parkland, Florida, Nick Cruz, murdered 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Immediately after the Parkland massacre, liberal CNN’s Jake Tapper sponsored a townhall meeting for the community. For the past three weeks the liberal media, academia, and Hollywood--with one voice---have pushed to ban guns as the answer to stop “mass shootings” in America. Even businesses from Dick’s Sporting Goods, to Delta and United Airlines, have joined the chorus condemning guns…and especially the NRA. In March, at least two ‘National School Against Guns’ walk-outs are scheduled; the first one is March 14. Atheists have been in the news foolishly pontificating that “prayer does not stop bullets.” Finally, liberals have even gone so far as to advocate for changing the second amendment, which allows for the possession of firearms by the populace.
First, the Word of God does NOT condemn gun ownership; nor does it promote gun control! The Bible does not teach Jesus was/is a passivist! As a short Bible study, Luke 22:49(NAS) teaches that the apostles carried swords; and Luke22:50 teaches Peter attacked Malchus (Jn18:10) with his sword! Incredibly, this entire Luke 22:49-50 scene happened on the Mount of Olives---while in prayer!!! I repeat…the apostles carried weapons--whose only design is to take human life--to a prayer meeting!!! Jesus rebuked Peter to put away his sword, NOT for possessing the sword (Mat26:51-52)!! Lastly, the Old Testament is filled with the wrath of God! Was Jesus present when Israel defeated the Philistines, Amalekites, and Amorites? Or, was He present when God raised-up the Assyrians against the Northern Kingdom of Israel? Or, Babylon against the southern kingdom of Judah? On the contrary, God is immutable…and Jesus has never been a passivist!
Second, what is really fascinating about the hypocrisy of liberalism is that in November of 2017, in Sutherlands Springs, Texas, Devin Patrick Kelley murdered 26 people at a church service! Therefore, even though there were more deaths at Sutherlands Springs, Texas, than Parkland, Florida; and even though the same AR-15 rifle was used in both situations, yet the liberal media did not create the same national hysteria as it did for the Parkland massacre…why?
To this day, there are students who live and attend school just a couple of hours from the Sutherland Springs, Texas massacre who are not even aware it even happened!!! Yet, there are very few in America who don’t know about Parkland, Florida school shooting! Again, why?
One primary reason is because at the Sutherlands Spring massacre, Stephen Willeford, a member of NRA, used the same AR-15 rifle, as used by Nick Cruz and Devin Patrick Kelley to murder people, to stop the massacre! In other words, Sutherlands Springs does not fit the liberal narrative created to help them ban guns; and discard the second amendment!
You see, liberals are very much aware of the incredible, Godly motive of our Founding Fathers who created the second amendment to help this new nation never become victim of what was historically true all over the world up to that point--government attacking their people! Even though liberals are very much aware of this historical fact, why are they then so insistent on banning guns today? Because the liberal motive is to remove America’s Judaeo/Christian ethic, re-creating the nation into a Socialist, atheist state, where government controls the people. To accomplish this feat in America however, requires removing the ability of the people to resist. Following historical precedent, they plan to implement their objective using a two-step plan: remove America’s guns, and reject the freedom of speech! If you look at our present culture—liberalism is attacking both with a vengeance!
My second point on liberalism’s monstrous hypocrisy regarding gun control--especially relates to Black people. As I have already written, the liberal objective for America is a total ban of guns—including hand guns! Sadly, what many gullible Black people have literally closed their eyes to is that a ban on guns, leaves guns only in the hands of the government! First, to establish this point, because liberals are Socialists, who advocate state control of the people, they must believe only government officials should have guns--not the common people! Second, here’s my point--Black people have already experienced the tragedy of having guns confiscated---by governing officials, also known as the Klu Klux Klan—the terrorist arm of the Democrat Party!!! Only after the KKK successfully passed laws to remove guns from Black people, did they begin visiting Blacks in the night, torching their homes and lynching! Ironically, it was Christians who created the NRA, specifically to help Blacks re-possess guns and discourage the Klan’s objectives!
Yet, the greatest evidence of liberal hypocrisy has occurred over the past 3 years, where liberals led the way in protesting police shooting Black people!! But, is it not these same liberals who called America racist, condemned the police for shooting unarmed Black people, who now want to restrict guns only to the hands of government officials?!?! I mean, are not police part of the government?
Incredibly, where are the all the liberal Blacks, such as Colin Kaepernick, Jesse White, BLM, and especially the NFL--who all shouted the loudest, and protested the longest against police brutality, but are now not only silent…but smiling and consenting---as liberals march forward to restrict guns only to those who they claimed shot innocent, unarmed, young Black men!!
To further establish the folly of the liberal gun ban, and the insincerity of liberal Blacks who claim police shot innocent Blacks, is that the government officials who were supposed to take control of all guns, and create and enforce all laws regarding guns going forward, failed on every level to prevent Nick Cruz, the mass-murderer in Parkland, Florida from obtaining a gun! I repeat, the Parkland government officials, repeatedly missed every sign, on every level; including the police, who were called to his home over 39 times! And liberals—especially Black liberals--want to put all guns in the hands of government!?!?!?
Somebody has lost their ever-loving mind!!
Why have not Black people all over America absolutely rejected the liberal gun ban? Because there is a remnant of Blacks who have foolishly sold their souls to liberalism!
