I Am Against Banning Cars
By Servando Gonzalez
February 24, 2018.
First of all, to avoid misunderstandings I will make it very clear
that I am not part of the car lobby in Washington D.C., I don’t
get any money from car companies and I am not even a member of
the American Car Association. The reason why I am against banning
cars is because, contrary to what some people believe, cars don’t
kill people; people kill people.
Granted, cars are one of the main causes of violent death in America.
Also, on many occasions terrorists have used cars to kill non-combatants,
that is, innocent people. But I have noticed that, except in a
couple of Hollywood films, every time a car has killed a person
is because somebody was behind the wheel.
Now, if everything I have said about cars can be applied to guns,
why it is that every time some crazy guy kills people with a gun,
the anti-gun lobby cries out — actually yells — for
gun control as a first step for fully banning them? Is there a
hidden motive for this obviously irrational behavior? You bet
there is. Essentially, they don’t care about cars because
you cannot use cars to defend yourself from a tyrannical government.
One of the things the mainstream presstitutes immediate emphasized
in their reporting of the recent deadly shooting at a Florida
school is that the killer used an “assault weapon.”
Nevertheless, “assault weapon” is just a notional
word — notional is term coined by medieval philosophers
to denote entities that exist only in the imagination, such as
a square circle, an honest politician, or the Gulf of Tonkin attack
on the U.S.S. Maddox LBJ used as a pretext to escalate
the Vietnam War.
There are no such things as assault weapons for the same reason
there are no defensive weapons per se. Actually, a defensive
weapon is anything you can use to defend yourself, your family
or your property, ranging from a baseball bat, a kitchen knife,
a full-auto rifle and even a pack of keys or a rolled-up glossy
magazine. In WWI, the assault weapon of choice was the bayonet.
In the same fashion, an assault weapon is anything you can use
to attack other people, ranging from a shotgun to a full-auto
rifle. The fact that a rifle has a pistol handle or can take a
30 round mag or a laser sight does not make it an assault weapon.
The same way that cars don’t kill people, but people do,
rifles don’t assault, people do. Proof of it is that despite
carrying full auto rifles with 30 round mags and laser sights,
our current militarized police never use their weapons to assault.
As the photos and videos of recent school shootings clearly
show, when the police wearing their bullet-proof vests and carrying
their full-auto rifles on the ready arrive in their armored vehicles
at the scene of a shooting in progress what they do is to take
defensive positions behind their vehicles and wait patiently until
the killer runs out of ammo, kills everybody or kills himself
— whatever comes first. But, as a rule, they NEVER assault
the place. If you want to see a police SWAT team assaulting you
hve to watch Hollywood films or TV serials.
The reason for this is because, contrary to what some people believe,
the police don’t carry guns to protect you, but to protect
themselves, their families and their property. If you expect that
they are going to risk their precious lives rescuing you from
a killer, you are dead wrong.
In the recent school shootings in Florida three of the teachers
lost their lives acting as barriers and took the bullets intended
for their students. Have you ever heard of a policeman doing something
similar? Well, if you know any, just let me know.
One of the things that have become evident about these never-ending
shootings is that the deranged individuals who commit this type
of crime always select a school, a church or a nightclub to carry
out their killing, but never a police station. The reason is simple:
they may be crazy, but they are not fools, and they know that
a police station is a place where everybody is carrying a gun.
Actually, some police officers carry two guns; they are trained
to use them and, of lately, some of them have proved to be very
trigger-happy. No wonder none of the crazy shooters has ever dared
to attack a police station.
So, the most elementary logic indicates that, instead of depriving
law-abiding citizens from their means to protect themselves, the
best way to stop these attacks on schools would be to change them
into veritable police stations, where most of the teachers, administrators
and other employees must carry guns. It would be very easy to
deputize these people, train them and allow them to legally carry
guns, openly or concealed, as a deterrent against these type of
But some bleeding heart liberals, as well as some bleeding heart
“conservatives,” will cry that allowing this to happen
will create chaos and blood will run down the streets. This however,
is simply not true. Despite the fact that the “Wild West,”
where most people carried guns, was much safer than today’s
cities such as Oakland, Chicago and Washington D.C., where strict
gun control laws have been enacted, this idea seems to prevail
among most Americans. Well, I have a personal story proving the
contrary, which I will share with you.
From 1959 to late 1963 I witnessed a curious phenomenon in Cuba,
my country of birth. After the victorious popular rebellion against
President Batista, a corrupt politician who turned into a corrupt
dictator, most Cuban citizens were carrying, openly and concealed,
all types of weapons, ranging from pistols and revolvers to fully
automatic rifles and sub-machine guns. Most of the people involved
in the rebellion against Batista were very young, so many of the
citizens carrying guns were teenagers.
At the time I was an officer in the Cuban army, and I remember
attending some of my evening classes at the University of Havana
carrying not only my sidearm, a 1911 .45 ACP, but also my Czech
Sa 25 19mm full-auto submachine gun with folding stock and five
32 round mags. But I was not alone. Most of my classmates and
even some of the professors were carrying guns of all types. I
remember a girl who proudly carried to classes her bolo Mauser
pistol and another guy, a former soldier in Castro’s guerrilla,
who always kept his .45 Thompson machine gun on the floor, right
under his desk.
If you took a bus, or strolled through Havana’s streets,
you saw that most people, men and women, old and young, were openly
carrying guns. Some of them were wearing army or militia uniforms,
but also most of the civilians were also carrying all types of
firearms. I don’t remember that guns were prohibited in
any public or private building or businesses.
Surprisingly, those were probably the most peaceful times in Cuba’s
recent history. Criminality dropped to its lowest, and violence
involving guns was almost unheard of. Despite the fact that most
schools also doubled as militia training centers and guns and
ammo were kept there, I never heard of a case of school violence
By mid 1963, however, when Castro felt that he was solidly established
in power, people were told to register their guns. A few months
later, a law was passed confiscating guns in the hands of private
citizens. Soon after, not only criminality came back with a vengeance,
but also criminal actions involving guns increased considerably,
particularly criminal actions committed by the Castro government
thugs against the now-unarmed Cuban citizens.
It is an easy verifiable fact that guns act as a deterrent against
aggression if only for the simple reason that it is a lot safer
to attack and kill an unarmed individual than an armed one, who
can shoot back. But gun control advocates apparently believe that
the best deterrent against aggression is to be unarmed. There
is, however, some inconsistency in the behavior of some of our
politicians, because they never ask for the elimination of the
U.S. military. According to their logic about guns, if we don’t
have a powerful military nobody would think about attacking us.
But no. Not even the craziest members of the anti-gun lobby have
ever suggested that we must get rid or our military. Well, what’s
good for the gander must also be good for the goose!
1. Some may argue that my comparison is not valid, because you
are forced by law to register cars and their operation is strictly
regulated. But, contrary to cars, that getting a permit to drive
them is a privilege, owning a gun is actually a right —
the necessary complement to protect your natural rights to life,
freedom and property. This explains why these rights, the most
important of all, are not even mentioned in the Bill of Rights
because the Founding Fathers believed that, even if the Constitution
was changed, or the Bill of Rights abolished, nobody can deprive
us of these rights inherent to any human being.
2. Just a few days after the Florida school shooting, some disturbing
facts began surfacing. Among them was that the FBI had had the
suspect under observation for many months prior to the incident,
but did nothing to stop him; that some witnesses claim there
was more than one shooter; that the suspect had been taking
prescription psychotropic, mind-altering drugs; that the students
had been told that an active shooter exercise was going to take
place that day and when they heard the initial shots they believed
it was part of it. Moreover, somebody recorded the police placing
in a vehicle something that looked like a body bag. If this
was the case, at best, it is tampering with the evidence; at
worst it means that most of what we have been told about the
whole incident is a lie.
Do you see a pattern here? Do you see similarities not only
with other school shootings but also with the gay bar shooting
in Orlando, the shooting in San Bernardino, the Boston Marathon
bombings and even the 9/11 events? Was the recent shooting at
the Florida High School another false flag operation? Are we
becoming paranoid? Just keep in mind that even paranoids have
Moreover, a disturbing fact is that some of the surviving students
have been so thoroughly brainwashed that, just after the shooting,
they began claiming for the banning of the very guns that would
have saved the lives of their classmates and teachers. This
shows that the daily brainwashing going on in our public schools
has been highly effective
In a book published 25 years ago, William Cooper wrote these
“The government encouraged the manufacture and importation
of military firearms for he criminals to use. This is intended
to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American
people to voluntarily disarming themselves by passing laws against
firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process
called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people
to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the antigun lobby.”

Arizona: Light Technology Publishing, 1991), P. 225.
While researching for my recently released book Partners
in Crime I discovered that the most important clue to detect
a false flag operation is the subsequent cover-up. Let’s
wait and see if there is one about the recent school shooting
