The concept that more gun control lowers crime has been disproven time again. Many areas with the strictest gun control laws have the higher rates of violent and gun related crimes. That’s no secret.
It’s also a proven fact that gun control laws generally impair law abiding citizens from owning and using their guns in self-defense. Criminals always seem to find a way to obtain a gun, generally through illegal means. Stealing them is not out of the question.
With so many locations passing stricter gun control laws, gun thefts from stores, cars and homes have increased. Liberals are using gun thefts as their new tool to push for more gun control laws.
The Center for American Progress has just released a report about gun theft, which is already serving as a tailor-made tool for those who want to extinguish your Second Amendment rights.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Center for American Progress, its first president and CEO was John Podesta, who served at President Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff, and later chaired Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
The group’s report: Stolen Guns in America: A State-by-State Analysis, describes gun theft in the United States as “staggering,” and it holds gun owners responsible for the thefts, rather than the criminals themselves…
Gun thefts are up because of stricter gun control laws, but liberals are claiming that more gun control laws are necessary because of all of the gun thefts. That makes as much sense as dating many fossils by the rock layer they are found in, but the rock layers are dated by what fossils they contain. It’s known as circular reasoning and it makes no sense and defies logic.
