The Inexorable Push – Professional Gun Control Propagandists

Posted: August 10, 2013 by ShortTimer in Government, Guns, Leftists, lies, Politics, Second Amendment

Remember, these people will not stop.  They do not stop.  Theya re professional propagandists, and professional revolutionaries, professionally out to disarm you and fundamentally change the country.

From WSJ:

Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner has uncovered a fascinating document: an 80-page “talking points” monograph titled “Preventing Gun Violence Through Effective Messaging,” written by a trio of Democratic political operatives.

The document, as Bedard writes, instructs politicians and advocates “to hype high-profile gun incidents like the Florida slaying of Trayvon Martin to win support for new gun control laws.” Essentially it’s a how-to book on inciting a moral panic.

The booklet explicitly urges foes of the Second Amendment to abjure rationality in favor of the argumentum ad passiones, or appeal to emotion. “When talking to broader audiences, we want to meet them where they are,” the authors advise. “That means emphasizing emotion over policy prescriptions, keeping our facts and our case simple and direct, and avoiding arguments that leave people thinking they don’t know enough about the topic to weigh in.”

The 80-page propaganda booklet can be found here: Preventing Gun Violence Through Effective Messaging.

This is subversion, professional propaganda designed to destroy freedoms paid for in blood of past and current generations.

It’s a wonderful propaganda primer that’s worthy of being dissected on every page.

There is no “freedom from” violence.  You can’t make people safer by making them defenseless.

The Declaration of Independence also says this:

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

That’s achieved through force of arms.

The NRA and the “gun lobby” are more in tune with Americans than the professional left.  The argument put forth there is the Tim Robbins Team America “corporations being all corporationy in their corporation buildings and they make money”.  It’s not only cynical, it’s silly.  The firearms industry has been doing booming business in the face of legal threats because people want to get arms while they still can.  The threat of legal action by the statist left has created a market shift.  People buy guns for their own reasons, not because of NRA lobbying or gun company marketing.

The whole thing is worthy of dissection, but just a couple more pages as examples:

gun violence messaging propaganda booklet pg49Shoot First and Kill at Will are absurd.  Unless threatened with greivous bodily harm or death, you can’t shoot at all.  In many states, even showing a weapon unjustifiably will get you sent to jail – brandishing.

Stand Your Ground replaces Duty To Retreat.

The anti-gun left wants you to be forced to retreat.

It’s indicative of the whole “government will do what’s best for you” mindset of the left.  In this case, it’s quite literal.  You must trust the state to protect you, you must trust the state’s officers to protect you, and you must flee because you are not allowed to defend yourself.

Demonization of individual action is the goal, and absurd talking points that lie and willfully ignore reality are their stock and trade.

There are no gun-toting vigilantes in their neighborhoods.  Normal folks do not want to end up being targeted by the entire federal government for trying to defend their neighborhoods.  No one wants to be George Zimmerman and be targeted by President Barack “If I Had A Son He’d Look Like Trayvon” Obama and Eric “Sends Guns to Narcoterrorist Cartels And Then Sets Up A 1-800 Number To Target One Man” Holder and the entire DOJ for thoughtcrimes.

Why should employees of the government’s lives be more important than yours, citizen?  Why should trained, disciplined police officers with body armor and backup on call, and disciplined soldiers with body armor, backup, and artillery fire on call have more legal leeway to defend themselves than your 80 year old grandmother who’s facing a pair of home invaders?  The argument is that they need to crack down on grandma because she should have more government restrictions that minimize her ability to defend herself.  The threat to her life isn’t meaningful to the left.

They think you’re too stupid to defend yourself, and should not be allowed to defend yourself.  Your life isn’t meaningful to them.  You’re too stupid to live your own life, so you’re clearly too stupid to defend yourself.  Just like ol’ Colorado Democrat Joe Salazar said.

To the propaganda again, all a person has to do is claim they’re threatened and have all the facts and evidence back it up as well.  And even that may not be enough, as evidenced by Zimmerman being targeted nationally by race-baiting hatemongers and the DOJ.  Plus for normal people (not criminals), they get their lives turned upside down by the process of being involved in even a justified shooting that prosecutors pass on.

Anyone not carrying a gun in the same circumstances as a good shoot won’t have anything to claim – as they’ll be a victim of greivous bodily harm or murder.  Criminals and thugs win, innocent people become dead victims buried on the moral high ground.

    The truth of the matter is: 100% OF ALL PROPOSED GUN LEGISLATION IS AIMED AT LAW ABIDING CITIZENS.
    The overriding fact in this issue has nothing to do with guns but with CONTROL. Control of every aspect of our lives.
    The talking points say ‘being safe in our homes, will as the people who live in Detroit who have to wait almost an hour (60 minutes) for the law to arrive when called to protect someone in their home.
    So, those of you who believe that the law will arrive in time to stop you wife from being sexually assaulted, while waiting for law enforcement to arrive, What are you going to do? Are you going to yell at him to stop and tell him the cops are coming, or are you going to do what you need to do to protect your wife. You DECIDE.

  3. […] is always the inexorable push by leftists for more control.  It’s what they do.  It’s all they […]
