Gun Control? Check This Out.
While Ol' BC doesn't own a gun, he is among the strongest proponents of the 2nd amendment to the U.S. constitution without exception (as it is written). As a kid though, Ol' BC belonged to a gun club. I learned gun safety as well as how to shoot and actually became more than semi-proficient. I'd hate to guess how many rounds we fired at the National Guard armory. This post by Colonel Hogan gives more than ample reason to assume such a position when gun control comes into question. A couple of examples. . .
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20
million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13
million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and
Colonel Hogan points out numerous other instances where gun control has had nothing but a negative effect including the recent Australian law and the increase in violent crime that followed.
Ol' BC is not one to question everybody's motives, but sometimes you just have to wonder. . .
in light of the historical data available, what would lead someone to be in favor?
Just a thought.
