The recent massacre of innocent schoolchildren at Newtown, Conn., has once again raised the issue of gun control. And once again one of the primary objectives of Democrats today is exposed: not measures to keep us safe from rampaging psychopaths, but the elimination of privately owned firearms. This is the same goal that was accomplished by leftist governments in China, Russia and Cuba, among others. And people in those countries are no longer free.
The liberal response to any mass murder is simply to ramp up efforts to limit, register and eventually confiscate legally owned weapons from law-abiding citizens. Shootings have become prime opportunities to exploit the pain and raw emotions of the victims and move the liberals’ unconstitutional agenda forward.
