The following article, Gun-Free Zones: The Socialist’s Utopian Experiment [Opinion], was first published on Flag And Cross.
The Gun-Free Zone is a microcosm of the “Socialist-Utopia,” Democrats dream of.
A recent Crime Research Prevention Center study showed, violent killers seek out Gun-Free Zones 94% of the time. So, why would Politicians refuse to re-evaluate their support of these deadly areas, even after seeing the massacres that they cause? First, we need to look at their decades-long commitment to gun-control. From the lowest ranks of the Beto O’Rourkes, all the way up to Presidents, we have seen a relentless push for gun control, regardless of the deadly effects gun-restrictions show us time and time again.
Two common elements that fuel the ignorant push for Gun-Free Zones are the perceived intellectual superiority of the Gun-Grabbers and a denial or ignorance of the American spirit. The intellectuals who continue to believe that a government-controlled Utopia can be created in America could never admit that their ideas are flawed. They truly believe that in the end they will create the government controlled Socialist-Utopia they’ve always dreamed of. Many of these people have been taught from birth that they are intellectually superior; so how could they ever admit that their ideas are dangerous and delusional, and if they did, what would that say about them?
The Anti-2nd Amendment Radicals in Congress, left-wing media and anti-gun lobbying groups like Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety, watch people die in these deadly zones while ignoring their own culpability. They stand on graves while pushing their agenda and use the death-toll numbers to gain more support for gun-control. Their belief that they know what is best, gives them false-license to ignore reality and continue to put people in danger by making them unarmed and helpless. They have studied the strategies and tactics other Governments have used on people to enforce compliance and they believe they will be able to do the same. But they fail to see one very important element, that if not unique to America, extremely strong in the hearts of most Americans due to the nature of our founding.
The Gun-Grabbers don’t understand the strength of the American spirit because it is something that they have lost (or never had to begin with.) The passion for freedom, liberty and individualism, runs through the veins of the majority of Americans, but it is completely lost on some. Patriotism and the willingness of real Americans to fight against tyranny (again, if we must) is the biggest roadblock faced by the Socialists living among us. Our founding fathers wrote the Constitution and Bill of Rights with their own blood, but some of the people we put in charge to defend those documents, have been taught to believe they are irrelevant.
If those who support the Utopian experimental laboratories known as Gun-Free Zones, were to admit that they are a dreadful failure, they would also have to admit that their idea of a government-controlled Utopian America is a fantasy. So, rather than acknowledge the blood on their hands, they push for more Gun-Free Zones and watch people get slaughtered while continuing to tell themselves that they are much smarter than everyone else.
Why do we expect people, who can’t conceptualize freedom, to defend freedom?
