When I came upon David’s Right Way of Thinking earlier today I knew I had found a kindred spirit. His blog David’s Right Way of Thinking (http://davidsright.blogspot.com/) is spot on in agreement with me on a whole host of issues, but I recently read about the troubles in England and I reallized, well I reallized that David was right.
David posted a list of the violent crimes from just one week in the UK:
Two women have been arrested after a female cyclist was stabbed to death in the Anfield area of Liverpool. The unidentified victim was riding a bicycle on Whitfield Road on Friday night when a car pulled up alongside her and an argument broke out.
A HAUL of shotguns, air weapons and other firearms that have been handed in to police were set to be destroyed in Edinburgh today. Around 800 weapons have been handed over to Lothian and Borders Police during an amnesty over the past six months.
Officers in a marked police car saw the 38-year-old man armed with a firearm walking towards a crowd of people in Harrow Road, Paddington, around 7:30pm on Wednesday. The man fled and was chased on foot by officers and arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery with a firearm. He is currently being held in custody at a central London police station.
Muslim leaders have condemned an attack on an Anglican clergyman calling the assault “cowardly and despicable”. Canon Michael Ainsworth, 57, was beaten by youths described as Asian in the grounds of St George-in-the-East, Shadwell, east London, on 5 March.
A 35-YEAR-OLD man suffered serious head injuries after an attack at a petrol station on Wednesday night. Police said they were treating the incident, at Sainsbury’s petrol station in Woodlands Road, Glasgow, as attempted murder. The man was said to be in a serious condition at the Southern General Hospital.
Three teenagers who left a 16-year-old boy minutes from death and broke a 15-year-old’s cheekbone in what a judge called an “insatiable desire to inflict injury” have been jailed indefinitely. The three youths were 15 when they spent an afternoon hunting victims in Boston, Lincolnshire. They set about the 16-year-old with such savagery that he was left for dead, having fits on the ground and with blood spilling from his mouth.
Could you imagine if the United States had a crime blotter like that for just 7 days? The liberals in this country would be outraged and running around with their hands up in the air like they are for this ridiculous Earth Hour. To quote David:
“Gun control laws are considered the solution but don’t address the problem – the violence and crime. While it is easier to kill with a gun, UK is considering a knife registry and ban on samurai swords. Why? Because the reason for crime and violence has not been addressed. “
So what would happen in this country after they take away our right to bear arms? I don’t know, but I think it would go a little something like this:
First they came for the guns and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a gun owner.
And then they came for the Samurai Swords and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a sword owner.
And then they came for the ballistas and I didn’t speak up because I didn’t have a ballista.
And then they came for my machete…And there was nobody left to take up arms to stop them.
Don’t think that gun control doesn’t affect you because you don’t have a gun–it does.
