Of Gun Control and Evil :: By Bill Wilson

Inevitably, the leftists use every crisis to shamelessly promote their agenda. Once again, the cries for gun control were heard before the mourners were even mourning. It’s disrespectful and it is without merit. How about looking at this another way? By making schools gun-free zones, and having liberal-minded and mandated programs that prevent common sense protection of our youth in schools, they are the ones who make the children easy targets of nut cases and terrorists.

Where there are criminals, there will always be guns. Banning guns only disarms the law-abiding. Look at the examples. In countries where there are gun bans, there are coups; dictatorships, communism, tyranny. It goes with the territory.

Baltimore, Maryland should be the poster city for gun control. Maryland has one of the strictest gun control laws in the nation. It’s one of those non-common sense laws where even law-abiding citizens who want to target practice in neighboring Virginia or Pennsylvania can properly transport their gun across state lines, but it is illegal for them to bring the guns back home. Baltimore had 343 murders last year. It’s not a safe place to be.

Illinois is another place where gun control is on the lips of every leftist. In Chicago, where police confiscate sometimes 600 guns a month, there are over 250 victims of shootings—a month! This is proof positive that taking guns away only emboldens those who will use them.

It is also amazing that in this day and age when someone posts on social media that they intend to do others harm, and they are reported to the FBI, that nothing is done about it. Perhaps, the FBI should get back to its original intent of crime solving and protecting the people it serves rather than trying to undermine presidential candidates and spy on people that politicians seem to think are threats to their fiefdoms.

Those who are critical of government officials and higher ups are put on watch lists, and secret courts are asked to allow surveillance of them; but, hey, somebody threatens to do a mass attack, it’s just some nut case trying to get a rise out of someone. Gun control? What about doing your job?

Now all the crazies are busting on the Trump Administration for these deaths in Florida. They should be looking at their own failed policies and have an understanding of why we all have the right to protect our lives. But then again, these are the same people who fight for the right to kill babies in the womb—something wrong with this picture. Life is precious.

Joshua 24:15 says, “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Kind of simplifies things. If we choose, love and serve the Lord, we’re not perfect, but we are less likely to be double-minded, mean spirited, and death-cultured like the gods others serve.
