In a diatribe I feel was not new to O’Reilly, he actually postulated that gun registration of responsible citizens would reduce gun crime by criminals. Even when it was pointed out that none of the recent shootings would have been stopped by his dangerous sophomoric suggestion, he stood fast.
He points to Chicago, claiming that gun registration would help because if a criminal was caught in a(n unconstitutional) “stop and frisk” with an unregistered gun, they’d be charged. It’s already illegal for these gangbangers to have guns. Laws won’t work if not applied, and Chicago does not apply the laws already on the books. How would another law matter to people with no respect for the lives of others? Take the guns out of Chicago and every other progressive nightmare city, and the death will go on.
There are over 310 million guns in America, as of 2009; why are the guns only killing people in Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC, and other Progressive enclaves?
No, the only way to lower the death rate is to impact the life of the criminal to such an extent that it is no longer worthwhile to pick up the weapon.
A mandatory 5/10/20/DEATH system of PUNISHMENT OF CRIMINALS will work much better than a punitive, unconstitutional registration of the legal weapons owned by responsible citizens.
If caught with a weapon you’re not legally allowed to own or carry, you go to a work farm for 5 years. No one in the community has to register their weapons.
If you brandish a legal or illegal weapon in the commission of a crime, you go to jail for 10 years. No one in the community has to register their weapons.
If you fire a legal or illegal weapon in the commission of a crime, and any type of mental or physical trauma or injury is experienced by anyone, you go to jail for 20 years. No one in the community has to register their weapons.
If you are convicted on any level of voluntary murder, you are put to death, publicly, at high noon, in an outdoor field in the community of your crime.
It is time to celebrate the removal of the killers from our midst and to educate and save the survivors. It is time to stop punishing others for the actions of a rising progressive cult.
Progressive doctrine has cheapened the lives of others in the eyes of captives born into the failed liberal experiments these anti-American “rulers” have condemned them to. They are the fatherless children of government entitlement, getting everything they need from others, watching babies being disposed of in record numbers through abortions, and being indoctrinated with self-esteem education.
Nothing short of the GUARANTEED threat of their losing their own freedom will make them think twice about pulling the trigger, or even picking up the gun.
Nothing short of attending a public execution celebrating the victory over evil by the community will start teaching a respect for the equality of the lives of others.
