Will Banning Guns Ban Bad Behavior?
By Mark Herr, President, Center for Self-Governance
ban guns will we finally ban bad behavior?
2017, a lone individual killed 80 plus in France using a rental truck. If we ban
rental trucks will we be able to ban bad behavior? In 2014, ten knife-wielding
men killed 29 and injured over 130 in China. If we ban knives will the human
race find the cure for bad behavior? Worldwide, over 1.3 million die annually
in auto accidents, 20 to 50 million are injured or disabled, yet would we
consider banning automobiles due to poor or impaired driving?
February 21, 2018, Senator Ben Nelson (FL) said at a CNN townhall “when you get
down to it, the – gun – is – going – to – do – the – killing.” He insinuates it
is time to ban the tools, like AK47 and AR15 guns. The narrative being pushed
is that the tool is the problem – not the behavior.
Lock up the guns; then we can turn the criminals loose!
is that bad behavior means different things to different cultures.
Muslims believe that not practicing Islam is bad behavior and will go so far as
to say such behavior is punishable by death. They will use a vehicle, guns,
knives, bombs and other tools to carry out the sentence. How do you change the
culture that breeds terrorism in the Muslim community? By banning the tools of
their bad behavior?
Borders – No Boundaries advocates believe that to oppose the breaking of immigration
law is bad behavior. Extreme No Borders advocates will go so far as to reject
Federal authority and threaten business owners who cooperate with Federal
agents enforcing the law. How do you change the culture of the No Borders
community – by banning the tools of their bad behavior?
believe that to not protect the environment is bad behavior. Extreme
Environmentalists will go so far as to say that the ends justify the means. For
example, they will use government force to kill, imprison, or destroy a
person’s means of living. How do you change the culture of these extremists –
by banning the tools of their bad behavior?
believe that to oppose abortion is bad behavior. Extreme abortionists will go
so far as to label anti-abortionists as domestic extremists and use government
law enforcement to kill, imprison, or destroy a person’s reputation. How do you
change the culture of these extremists – by banning the tools of their bad
Control advocates believe that to own a gun is bad behavior. Extreme Gun
Control advocates will go so far as to label anyone who supports gun ownership,
like the National Rifle Association and individual gun owners, as ‘right-wing
extremists’ responsible for mass shootings, even ‘murderers.’ How do you change
the culture of these extremists – by banning the tools of their bad behavior?
of the United States believe that to support dual federalism is bad behavior. These extremists
go so far as to say domestic terrorism is comprised primarily of domestic right
wing extremists who, according to Harry Reid’s wording in the Patriot Act,
apparently intend to ‘coerce and intimidate the civilian population and change
government policy’. Groups like the NRA, Tea Party, Constitutionalists, Christians,
Veterans, GUN-OWNERS, and so on are on the list. These patriot groups are
lumped into the same official Federal documents as ‘White Supremacists’, ‘Hate
Groups’ and ‘extremists’, having been covertly labeled and marginalized for the
crime of doing their duty as citizens – peacefully, legally, and effectively changing
State, and Local law enforcement were given ‘bad behavior’ labels by Congress
and subsequently, by the Department of Homeland Security in 2001 and 2009
Under these ‘bad behavior’ labels, anyone who opposes
any of the previously mentioned issues is presently defined either as ‘Domestic
Terrorist’ or ‘Right-Wing Extremist’.
other words, bad behavior has already been defined in America by Congress, long
before last week’s mass shooting in Florida. The jig is up. If you support gun
ownership you are bad – and the remedy is supposedly to ban the tools of the
our attempts to eliminate bad behavior worked so far in America? Legislation,
for sure, hasn’t worked for mass shootings, murder or other violence, just as it
has failed for the poor and hungry.
tools, like guns, will not eliminate the bad behavior of mass shooters, serial
murderers, rapists, gangs, drug dealers and other criminals. It only emboldens
guns most certainly eliminates the so-called ‘bad behavior’ of patriotic
Americans who support dual federalism, falsely labeled ‘Domestic
Terrorist Right-Winged Extremists.’ And along with it, eliminates the defense
of all our other rights by the ultimate guardians of freedom, We the People.
