The Desperate Need to Ban Hammers! By John Steele
The Leftoid gun banner typically argues that where there is some shooting with deaths and injuries, that the gun and the person is at fault, but mainly the guns. No guns, no shooting; simple. Just forget about illegal guns, seen most dramatically in gun-controlled places like Mexico and Chicago. But, what about murders with hammers and other blunt melee weapons and tools?
“The most recent FBI crime stats show that more people were killed in 2017 with hammers and clubs than were killed with rifles of any kind. Breitbart News reported the most recent numbers–those for 2017–on September 26, 2018. Those figures showed that 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed with rifles. And it must be noted that the category of “rifles” used by the FBI includes bolt action, pump action, single shot, and semi-automatic, as well as those the left describes as “assault weapons.” This means only a percentage of the 403 deaths attributed to “rifles” would have been carried out with an “assault weapon.” So, the gap between the number of persons beaten to death with hammers and clubs verses those killed with “assault weapons” would be even greater than the gap between those who died in a hammer/club attack versus those who died being shot with “rifles” of any kind. Breitbart News also reported that the 2017 crime figures showed 1,591 people were killed with “knives or cutting instruments” while 403 were killed with “rifles.” This means nearly four times as many people were stabbed to death as were killed with any kind of rifle. (The gap between the number stabbed to death and the number of persons explicitly killed with an “assault weapon” would be even greater.) Yet Democrats are pushing an “assault weapons” ban and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says legislation for such a ban will be “front and center” when the Senate reconvenes.”
Ok, then ban hammers now! Leftoids can hammer in nails with their hard heads anyway!
Of course, like our Liberals and Labor, all the boys and girls are in on the conspiracy, and want to eliminate private gun ownership across the West. Here in Australia, letters from firearms division quote the National Firearms Agreement 2017, that “firearm possession and use is a privilege that is conditional on the overriding need to ensure public safety.” Well who decided that, and who voted for that principle? I don’t recall any party putting that up for voters to consider. Nor is the policy consistent, since we are basically left to fend for ourselves in daily life, and I doubt that the police pre-emptively stop many acts of violence that we read about the morning after. If the government was serious about public safety, it would need to do massively more than the minimalism it now does. Rural people are basically undefended, as police can never reach them in time, when there is a threat. Hence the justification for a firearm, but Australians have been effectively denied their natural law right to self-defence by the anarcho-tyranny. The American argument applies equally to us.
Modern man is simply a subject, a wage and welfare slave of the state, with less rights that serfs in medieval times had. The Vikings of over 1,000 years ago had a freer society that what we have now, a social cesspool which simply oozes socialist state control. Firearms control, which is manhood control is the symbol of this, as the feminist literature makes very clear. Guns are phallic symbols and hence evil, and must be castrated. Controlling the capacity of bullets in a magazine is just the first symbolic step.
