Russians Understand THE CONSEQUENCES of Gun Control Much Bettter Than Do Americans...

And, so do the Aussies, the Brits, and every other country where gun "privileges" are severely restricted. Here's an excerpt from an article on, titled "Illinois Considers Statewide Gun Ban":

"This push for more gun control comes as statistics show that in Chicago last year, a total of 532 people were murdered. That’s about 1.5 people every day. In more realistic terms, that’s 3 people every 2 days. That means that more people were murdered on an average day in Chicago last year than people were murdered in Kennesaw, Georgia in 25 years.
Even a writer for the Russian news outlet Pravda excoriated gun control trends in the U.S. In his article, Stanislov Mishkin wrote of the history of gun control in his own country. 'There was a time', he said, 'when everyone carried a gun of some sort, much like gun owners here in the U.S. carry. But the height of their oppression came when their government disarmed the populace:

“One of the first things they did was to disarm the population. From that point, mass repression, mass arrests, mass deportations, mass murder, mass starvation were all a safe game for the powers that were.”

Mishin concluded by exhorting Americans not to give up their 2nd Amendment rights and not to fall for the politicians’ fake promises of security and safety:

“No, it is about power and a total power over the people. There is a lot of desire to bad mouth the Tsar, particularly by the Communists, who claim he was a tyrant, and yet under him we were armed and under the progressives disarmed. Do not be fooled by a belief that progressive leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question. They hate guns in [the hands of] those whom they have slated for a barrel to the back of the ear. So, do not fall for the false promises and do not extinguish the light that is left to allow humanity a measure of self respect."

Since the dissolution of NYC's political Tammany Society (Democrats) in the 1960's, Chicago has had the dubious unofficial distinction of being the most politically corrupt city in the USA. An excerpt from the Huffington Post (one of my least favorite sources of left-wing propaganda):
"Chicago was given the unfortunate title of "most corrupt" city in America (and by extension the entire State of Illinois, as HOME OF the most corrupt city) in a new study by the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Illinois' Institute of Government and Public Affairs.
The report cites federal data showing that, between 1976 and 2010, there were 1,531 convictions for public corruption in "the federal district dominated by Chicago," according to the Associated Press. Since the 1970s, four of seven Illinois governors have been convicted, along with 31 members of Chicago's city council.

"The two worst crime zones in Illinois are the governor's mansion ... and the city council chambers in Chicago," Dick Simpson, a former Chicago alderman, told the AP. "No other state can match us."
I don't know that I'd be 'crowing' about that if I were a former Chicago alderman. The public reaction to such a statement would likely be, "Hey, look! Here's one that didn't get caught!"... if the Chicago public would even be moved to have a reaction to the fact that Chicago was horribly corrupt, as it was probably long-standing common knowledge. Chicago's political machine today hasn't changed one iota since the days of Al Capone.

The Russian's view of our RIGHT to keep and bear arms is one we should focus upon, and share with our liberal friends (assuming we have any liberal friends), for his view is anecdotal - one of BT-DT. Illinois' proposed approach to curing their share of the "gun problem" is Constitutionally wrong... but, whattaya do when your confinement facilities are filled with politicians? Take something away from those who ARE NOT criminals, with the expectation that doing so will somehow deter those who are criminals. How about this - let's have summary executions for anyone who employs a firearm during the commission of a crime of which they have been convicted - whether the gun is fired or not. Guilty today, executed tomorrow! I can pretty-much guarantee that THAT would have a much greater impact upon the use of guns in crime, than punishing the LAC and/or their guns. Blaming the tool is the act of a fool! Just my thoughts.

Remember that the Federal Government of the 1800's made "promises" to the Native Americans - which, by and large were not made in good faith, and were therefore eventually broken. Do I trust the government? Not by any stretch of the imagination! Why? Because the government is run by politicians, whose stock-in-trade is the untruth, the misdirection, doublespeak and flat-out LIES. And, to answer the unasked bleeding-heart question: "What if the conviction was wrong?" Waaaaah, waaaaah, waaaaah! File it under "collateral damage" - they shouldn't have done anything that would even have made them a suspect of committing a crime. Where's Judge Roy Bean when we need him? Dead... for 110 years!

If you will, think of the U.S. Constitution as the menu of a left-wing restaurant, and the Second Amendment is the appetizer course -  elephant. The left-wing wants to eat everything in sight, but they must eat the elephant first. How does people eat an elephant? One bite at a time! A bite here, a nibble there, and before you know it the entire elephant is gone. This particular "elephant" protects the citizens of the USA from the imposition of a tyrannical government. Once it is out of the way, government can order anything it wants from the remaining menu, without fear of effective demonstrations of outrage from the people.

The Obama administration has, on several occasions, usurped, contravened, or otherwise circumvented the intent of our Constitution, and has done so with impunity from impeachment. He has done so through abuse of the Executive Order, and bypassing Congress when it was in session, abusing the "recess clause"! Our Congress seems to lack the courage to impeach this charlatan who inhabits the White House, all the while masquerading as the president. Obama has engineered the destruction of our Republic, and our representatives in Washington D.C. apparently do not care to challenge his authority to do so.
We have midterm elections coming up for Congress (House and Senate). If we can't change their attitudes, at least we can change their faces!
