Concealed Carry Permits in Buncombe Jump 400 Percent
It’s great to hear of such an increase of people locally taking their Natural Right of Self-Defense more seriously — this will certainly lead to a reduction of crime!
Sadly, it’s apparent from the comments of some in this article and online posts that there are still those who remain deceived into believing the insanity that the STATE’s continued violations of our Natural Right to Self-Defense can in any way prevent — or even minimize — violent crime in America.
In fact, the opposite has been proven to be the case with the STATE’s creation of so called “Gun Free Zones” in the 90’s. Since then nearly every mass shooting has taken place in such dangerous zones created by the STATE.
An astute conspiracy theorist would have to wonder if the entire purpose of creating such dangerous anti-liberty zones was to actually increase the potential of violent crimes in order for the STATE to increase support for tyrannical gun regulations, like the mandatory “buyback” plan that Hillary Clinton and other tyrants in power desire. After all, there is no “theory” to the conspiracy of these Collectivists who desire to unarm common law abiding Americans, as they’ve routinely stated.
And of course we have more than our own share of Collectivists locally who exemplify themselves as being entirely out of touch with reality. Consider the insanity exhibited here from Cecil Bothwell:
“The uptick in concealed carry permits should worry everyone. When more people are toting weapons, concealed or not, all of us are less safe.”
The absurdity of such a statement is beyond ignorant, for it is not based in reality but rather a fantasy within one’s own mind. For starters and as already mentioned, anyone can witness the facts regarding the result of STATE mandated “Gun Free Zones”. Further, the paramount fact of the matter ignored (intentionally?) by such Collectivists is that no legislation can ever prevent a criminal from acquiring a weapon via the black market and then acting violently — PERIOD.
Even Dianne Feinstein (finally) publicly admits what most everyone already knew as a matter of simple reasoning, that no gun regulations could prevent such tragedies as the Vegas shooting. So then, when are the rest of the anti-gun Collectivists going to admit this truth?
Do they not recognize the parallel with the “War on Drugs”? After all, a plethora of drugs have been deemed “illegal” — illegally — by the tyrannical STATE, yet this has never prevented anyone (including politicians) from being able to acquire them. So why do people embrace the insane idea that this would work any differently… for ANYTHING??? One would think that the evil fruit of alcohol prohibition in the 1920’s would have taught this lesson to anyone with a functioning intellect.
The overwhelming fact of the matter is that when more law abiding citizens are armed and trained, we are all more safe!
The reason for this is plain for most everyone to understand, but we can certainly spell it out for those having difficulty: criminals are most prone to commit crimes in which they believe they have the greatest chance of success. This is a simple concept that one would imagine to be common knowledge.
Even mentally unstable violent criminals who have no goal other than to murder as many people as possible seek success, therefore, they most often select locations deemed by the STATE as “Gun Free Zones”, knowing that most people obey such laws (even though such bad laws should NOT be obeyed).
Speaking of mentally unsound, another common attribute of gun grabbing Collectivists is that they perpetually refuse to hold accountable those individuals committing violent crimes. Rather, they place blame upon inanimate objects such as the weapons themselves and then seek to punish ALL innocent Americans by infringing upon their Natural Right to Self-Defense.
One local Collectivist commenting online in response to this article even blames a victim with “contributing to gun violence” for his firearm being stolen from inside his locked vehicle, rather than blaming the thief! It’s sad to witness such delusion among those indoctrinated into anti-liberty collectivist philosophy.
Another fact is that there are often cases — scarcely properly covered by the fake MSM news — where lives are saved merely by one armed individual thwarting the actions of violent criminals.
For example, the recent horrific church shooting in Texas was ended by one neighbor with an AR-15, saving the lives of several innocent church goers that day. The fake MSM news widely reported the fact that the mass shooter used an AR-15, and especially highlighted such rifles are easily accessible for purchase. Yet among most all of the online articles I just searched through, absent from these reports is the parallel fact that the “good guy with a gun” who put an end to the murder was also using an AR-15. Also unstated by MSM was any mention of the fact that had more individuals in that church been armed, chances are more lives could have been saved.
But how quickly and effortlessly the gun grabbers “forget” such facts! Thankfully, we who honor the Natural Right of Self-Defense don’t forget!
Perhaps no one puts it to the Collectivist legislators better than Suzanna Gratia Hupp, who lost her parents due to being in a “Gun Free Zone” at the very wrong time… and obeying the bad law:
Suzanna Gratia Hupp explains meaning of 2nd Amendment!
I look forward to AVL & WNC continuing to be a safer place to live as more individuals recognize TRUTH vs FICTION and take their Natural Right to Self-Defense responsibility more seriously!
