Gun Laws 101.

Class is now in session!

Here is my third public service installment from MrEricksonRules’ University, highlighting my course, “Gun Laws 101.”

Okay…, well, let’s get the class rolling.

Are you ready?

Here we go.

The first thing we have to recognize is that CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

Again…, CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

So, for our democrat friends, especially Illegitimate Joe, Cackling Kamala, Crazy Nancy Pelosi, and Upchuck Schumer…, here is the breaking news:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

Did you get that, Joe, Kamala, Nancy, Chuck, along with the rest of your clueless democrat friends?

And truthfully, there are some clueless, establishment republicans who need reminding as well.

So, just in case you missed it:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS! 

The only people any gun laws you pass will have any effect on are the law-abiding gun owners who are not the problem in the first place.

Again:

CRIMINALS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

GANG MEMBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

DRUG DEALERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS!

ARMED ROBBERS DO NOT OBEY GUN LAWS! 

Okay, so, back to addressing my students.

So, whenever we hear these disingenuous politicians pontificating on the new gun laws they are proposing, just be aware that it is a bunch of hot air that will do absolutely nothing, regarding gun violence in our country.

NOTHING.

CRIMINALS DO NOT BUY THEIR GUNS AT DICK’S SPORTING GOODS, BASS PRO SHOPS, OR CABELAS.

CRIMINALS USE STOLEN GUNS OR GUNS THEY GET ILLEGALLY OFF THE BLACK MARKET.

So, the politicians can make legally buying a firearm as difficult as they want, but these added requirements only make it harder for law-abiding citizens to purchase a gun.

THESE ADDED ROAD BLOCKS TO BUYING A GUN HAVE NO EFFECT ON CRIMINALS OBTAINING A WEAPON.

NONE.

The ironic part of this whole issue is that we already have plenty of gun laws on the books to deter gun violence.

THE REAL PROBLEM IS THE GOVERNMENT AND THE COURTS DON’T PROPERLY ENFORCE THE LAW!

OVER 75% OF PEOPLE WHO COMMIT A CRIME WITH A GUN ARE REPEAT OFFENDERS!

PEOPLE WHO CHOOSE TO COMMIT A CRIME WITH A GUN NEED TO BE TAKEN OUT OF CIRCULATION AND PUT AWAY FOR A LONG TIME.

WE HAVE TO SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE THAT IF YOU USE A GUN ILLEGALLY, YOU WILL NOT GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO AGAIN.

It is not hard to figure out, that if we do this, within a few years, the rate of crime involving a weapon will go way down.

WAY DOWN.

Gun laws are there to protect law-abiding citizens.

IF THE COURT SYSTEM CHOOSES TO TREAT GUN CRIME LIGHTLY, THEY DO SO AT THE EXPENSE OF LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS, AND SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR CRIMES AGANST SOCIETY AS WELL.  

So, do we really need any new gun laws?

No.

IF THE POLITICIANS REALLY WANT TO REDUCE GUN VIOLENCE, ALL THEY NEED TO DO IS DEMAND THAT OUR CURRENT LAWS ARE ENFORCED, AND THAT USING A GUN ILLEGALLY WILL BE PUNISHED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW.

The sad part is they already know this, but they knowingly choose to put the “rights” of criminals ahead of the rights of the victims and law-abiding citizens, like you and me.

They make sure they’re protected though.

It’s the ultimate challenge a free society has to face.

The laws that allow us to enjoy freedom are the same laws that allow the haters of America’s freedoms to attack our freedom.  

Please be on the lookout for my next course, made available to everyone free of charge, from MrEricksonRules’ University.

What the heck has happened to Venezuela?!  I’ll break it down for you.

Let’s look at a basic and condensed timeline, pertaining to Venezuela, for starters:

1992 – Venezuela becomes the 3rd richest country in the western hemisphere, behind only the United States and Canada.

1993 – President Carlos Andrés Pérez is impeached for embezzlement of public funds.

1998 – A collapse in confidence in the existing parties saw the election of former coup-involved career officer Hugo Chávez and the launch of the Bolivarian Revolution and socialism. The “Bolivarian Revolution” refers to a left-wing populist social movement and political process in Venezuela led by the late Venezuelan president, Hugo Chávez, who founded the Fifth Republic Movement in 1997 and the United Socialist Party of Venezuela in 2007.

1999 – The “revolution” began when a “new” Constitution for Venezuela was written.

2001 – Venezuela voted for a socialist president to address “income inequality.”

2004 – Private healthcare is completely socialized.

2007 – All higher education becomes “free.”

2009 – The private ownership of guns is banned.

2012 – Bernie Sanders is quoted as saying, “Venezuelans are living the American dream better than Americans.”

2014 – Government opposition leaders are imprisoned.

2016 – Food shortages become a widespread problem.

2017 – The Venezuelan constitution and elections are suspended.

2018 – The country’s economic policies lead to extreme hyperinflation, with an inflation rate of 1,370,000% by the end of the year.

2019 – It is estimated that more than 3 million people have fled Venezuela in recent years.

2019 – Venezuelan protesters are attacked and killed by their own government in order to suppress their dissidence.

 

Venezuela’s socialist governments have been in power since 1999, taking over the country at a time when Venezuela had huge inequality.

But the socialist polices brought in which aimed to help the poor backfired, and made the situation even worse, of course.  Companies now controlled by the government failed, and price controls to make basic goods more affordable to the poor by capping prices meant that Venezuelan businesses no longer found it profitable to produce them.  Eventually, the government subsidies of all facets of the economy were unsustainable.

In only 27 years Venezuela has turned a “rags to riches” story into a “riches to rags” story.

Like Margaret Thatcher, the former Britsh Prime Minister once said, “The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

Does any of the Venezuela story sound familiar today in America?

There certainly appear to be some similarities in the early stages happening here.

We see an impeachment happy democrat Congress trying to overturn a presidential election.

We see many democrat politicians and democrat presidential candidates calling for a new constitution or drastic changes to our existing one.

We constantly hear democrat politicians and democrat presidential candidates touting government solutions for “income inequality,” don’t we?

venezuela 9

We hear democrat politicians and democrat presidential candidates calling for a complete government takeover of our healthcare system.

Many democrat politicians and democrat presidential candidates are proposing “free” college.

And lastly, we hear many democrat politicians and democrat presidential candidates calling for radical changes to our gun laws, changes to the 2nd amendment or the complete removal of our right to bear arms.

The intentions of the American democrat party are apparent.

The democrats want to destroy America as we know it.

The choice here is painfully clear.

If you want to follow in Venezuela’s footsteps…, elect democrats.

It’s as simple as that.

The only people who benefit from a socialist government are those in government.

They apparently long for power that badly that they are willing to turn everyone elses life into a living hell for their own sakes.

They can only do this if we let them, however.

Remember…, the Venezuelan people voted for what they got.

In the end…, it’s their own fault.

And in the end…, we’ll choose our own fate as well.
