The state of the recent debate over gun control should be concerning to every freedom-loving citizen in the United States and countries in Europe. “Debate” is rather a strong word for something which doesn’t involve any debating per se. These events, protests and “movements” are being implicitly orchestrated and prepared to take away the civil rights (most notably the 1st and 2nd Amendment) of the general population. The mainstream and sometimes even parts of the alternative media takes part in, consciously or unconsciously, in some or all of these diversions which were and are being propped up the same media organizations in the way they would be reporting on the Second Coming.
Some people, quite legitimately, question the very nature of these “mass shootings”. The interviews posted by CNN, BBC, and others after these shootings are really interesting. Let’s just imagine that one of your loved ones just lost somebody who was really dear to him or her. What would you imagine their reaction would be if some “journalist” shoved a microphone and a big camera in their face? I suppose most of your loved ones probably wouldn’t ever give an interview. Strangely, comparing this behavior to that of the interviewees who show up on CNN, MSNBC, ABC News, etc. those people are very glad to give an interview and talk to the camera. Sometimes they even crack a smile or two while being interviewed about their recently deceased son or daughter. Of course, some of them might have some kind of mental deficiency, but that could not be true for all.
It is also quite intriguing why anybody in their right mind would consider using blanks while conducting school shooting drills.
Central European universities and professors are really anti-gun and pro mainstream media. Only some Austrian and Swiss professors are voicing the pro-gun side of the debate, while all the others are claiming that all the 2nd Amendment in the United States all of it was good for was the purpose to make sure that Americans had access to firearms solely for hunting, and is now nearly completely obsolete. However, those two statements are not just incorrect, but also completely false. None the less that is taught on several Central European universities. Students with dissenting opinions will receive worse grades and harassment from both teachers and other students.
Repealing the Second Amendment would clearly not solve anything, because of the sheer number of firearms (about 330 million) and ammunition in civilian hands in the United States. It is by no means outdated
David Hogg is perhaps the mainstream poster child of gun control – at least currently, while Donald Trump opted to start a legal fight against bump stocks. Perhaps more concerning are the recent developments in the mainstream media which takes a really hard stance against assault weapons, but mainly against semi-automatic rifles.
Some people claim that installing a bump stock onto a rifle makes the semi-automatic rifle essentially an automatic one (because it increases its fire rate) which is incorrect. In reality, bump stocks make rifles harder to aim and control and the applies to tight situations, for instance in close quarters, as well, because the shooter has to move the rifle with the bump stock in a specific way which makes the shooter unable to support the rifle with his shoulder. Consequently, a semi-automatic with a bump stock installed will be much harder and trickier to control than its full automatic counterpart. Even if one would target a large group of people semi-automatic would be far more effective while with a bump stock the shooter’s movement would be restricted and moving while firing would result in spraying bullets everywhere while needing to reload sooner.
The whole argument for or against bump stocks is quite futile at the same time, because the point of this “debate” spurred up by individuals such as David Hogg and many other supposed students along with the media and has nothing to do with debate or a movement but rather tries to suppress and take away the rights of civilians.
Rather than caring so much about bump stock and semi-automatic rifles they should really take a look at issues within the society and realize that there are other countries which (more or less) allow citizens the possession of firearms (including military rifles), countries like Austria and Switzerland where people don’t worry about shooting or other gun-related incidents and have no issues with any type of firearm.
