Through some blog-wandering, I stumbled across a new blogger at Uncommon Gunsense, who has recently started blogging after getting banned from everybody’s favourite anti-gun blog for presenting too many facts and logical arguments. Only three posts so far, but it looks promising! Check it out in the blogroll to the right. (h/t Wee’rd Beard)
In the sidebar, she links to another blog’s post called “A Frightening Truth.” It’s an interesting read. What really caught my attention, though, was this in the comments:
He’s right. Our culture is slowly moving further and further away from the assumption that a person has the right to use physical force, and especially deadly force, in self-defense. You see it with the zero-
intelligencetolerance policies in schools, where even the child that is attacked gets punished for fighting back, as if he’s supposed to just curl into a fetal position and take the hits until a teacher shows up – IF a teacher shows up. You see it in television and many movies, where the hero has to wait for the villain to actually shoot before he can shoot back (Han shot first, and he was right to do it!!!)
It made me realize something: This is what the anti-rights people want. They don’t just want to disarm us physically, they want to disarm us psychologically, by making us think that all violence is evil, even violence used in self-defense against an immediate attack. Why?
The only reason I can think of is that a population that is indoctrinated to abhor all violence is easier to control, because they aren’t willing to fight back. Which makes me wonder what their ultimate goals really are.
