Cars Don't Kill People

The recent massacre in Norway[1] has brought renewed interest in the subject of gun control. As expected, gun control advocates will seize the tragic events to convince the rest of us that passing even stricter gun control laws is the only way to avoid the repetition of this type of incident. They conveniently ignore, however, that Norway is one of the countries in the world where strict gun control laws have been in place for a long time. Norwegian citizens do not have the right to bear arms. Only the members of some governmente agencies are authorized by the government to carry guns.

Moreover, zealous gun control advocates conveniently ignore the proven, verifiable fact that guns don’t kill people.
Let me repeat it again to make it absolutely clear: GUNS DON’T KILL PEOPLE

In Christine, a 1983 horror film directed by John Carpenter, an old car named Christine rebuilds itself after a massive accident and then discovers her true life passion in life: killing people. And she does it with incredible passion and efficiency.

Nevertheless, it is difficult to understand why if most people love cars, cars hate people so much that killing people is one of their main hobbies. According to recent statistics, more people are killed by cars in the U.S. than by disease, accidents, people firing guns or any other cause.[2] Why, then, the people who have been for years claiming for the banning of guns have never mentioned the banning of cars? Well, one reason may be that Christine was just a fiction film. Another, that in real life, everybody knows that cars don’t kill people; there is always somebody behind the wheel doing the killing.

In the same fashion, guns don’t kill people: people kill people. For every person killed by a bullet there has been another pulling the gun’s trigger.[3] Actually, guns have so many safety devices designed into them to avoid accidental firings that they should be considered one of the safer tools ever created by man.[4] The fact that guns don’t kill people is so obvious that it should not merit the subject of a discussion. Despite of it, however, many people believe that the best solution to avoid senseless carnages like the one in Oslo is banning guns, and they have the full support of their governments.

Why most governments all around the world love taking guns from the hands of its citizens, but not cars, the main tool of violent death in developed countries? The reason is simple: people cannot effectively use their cars to overthrow a tyrannical government, only their guns can do the job. That is the very reason why the Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment to the Constitution. Just a cursory reading of the three main documents of this country — the Declarations of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights — will convince anybody that the reason why the Founding Fathers recognized the right to bear arms[5] as an essential right of free citizens is because only guns in the hands of the citizens can curtail, deter, or overthrow a tyrannical government.

For the same reason that neither cars nor guns (nor kitchen knives, baseball bats, golf clubs, bricks, battle tanks or drones) kill people, bombs do not blow up planes in flight: people do. Nevertheless, the Council on Foreign Relations conspirators who control this country have instructed their puppets in the White House to order the FBI, OHS, TSA, and other repressive “anti-terrorist” agencies, to avoid profiling — that is, focusing on people — and focusing instead in the means to cause havoc.[6]

However, just a short visit to a hardware store, supermarket, pharmacy, or even toy store, will convince you that most things freely available in these type of stores can be easily repurposed to be used as weapons or means of destruction. Consequently, the focus on the means of destruction, not on the destructive people, is ineffective, senseless, and plain stupid.

Or is it not?

If one wrongly assume that the U.S. government’s goal is fighting terrorism, the approach currently used by the OHS, FBI, TSA, and the rest of the government agencies allegedly engaged in protecting the American people from terrorism is plainly stupid. On the other hand, if we realize that the true, hidden goal of these agencies is not fighting terrorism, but destroying the free spirit of the American people, it is evident that the policy has been very effective

If you are a frequent flyer, you may have noticed how parents take off their watches, key chains, shoes and other items of clothing as if it were the most normal thing to do, and their children faithfully imitate them. Unknowingly, they are contributing to mentally condition the new generation of sheeple: people who will accept any measure imposed by the government without complain — exactly the type of passive citizens the communo-fascists need for the coming New World Order.

History shows that, as a rule, revolutionary, drastic societal change is carried out by a relatively small group of decided, armed people who forcefully impose their will over a large group of undecided, unarmed people. These changes can take the form of a fascist coup d’état or a communist mass revolution. However, if the CFR globalist conspirators finally take full control of America, this will be an exception to the rule: the first time in the history of mankind that a small group of unarmed, physical cowards has managed to enslave a large majority of bold, armed warriors.

I don’t think most Americans would like to be proud of this type of exceptionalism.

Notes:

[1] On July 22, 20011, a man wearing a military uniform and carrying a semi-automatic rifle and other weapons, killed more than 60 teenagers at a youth camp in a tiny island outside Oslo. During the 90 minutes the police took to appear, the killer had plenty of time to hunt his victims. Due to Norway’s strict gun control laws, all the victims were unarmed. A few days after the massacre, some estrange things about the shooter have begun to surface, and conspiracy theories abound. Nevertheless, if Norway’s government uses the incident as a pretext to enact anti-terrorism laws and tighten already existing gun restrictions, this would be a sure sign that the assassin was a patsy and the whole thing a Hegelian PsyOp
.
[2] According to recent statistics, murders by people using firearms, per year are 14,000, while deaths by people driving cars per year are 43,000. Some researchers have studied the figures on firearm ownership, firearm accidents, suicides, and murders, during the period from 1959 to the present. Their goal was to find out whether accidents, suicides, or murders by firearm increase or decrease as the supply of firearms increases or decreases. The figures show that, contrary to anti-gun claims, the rates of accidents and murders by firearms do not show any relationship to the number of guns owned by civilians. The gun supply has increased and decreased without affecting the accident or murder rates. Granted, suicides by firearms have increased when more guns have been available, but the total suicide rate has not changed; when guns are less available, people find other ways to commit suicide.

[4] Probably, the only exception to this is the Austrian-made Glock pistol. Placing the safety in the trigger is equivalent to placing a car’s brake in the gas pedal. Unfortunately, despite a long history of accidental firings, the unsafest gun in the world has been adopted by most police departments in the U.S. This may be a sign of how less they care for the lives of the citizens they are supposed to serve and protect.

[5] Contrary to what most Americans have been brainwashed to believe, the Second Amendment does not give us the right to bear arms. It only acknowledges the inherent right of the citizens to bear arms, similar to their inherent rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The distinction is very important, because it means not only that all government permits to carry guns, concealed or visible, are unconstitutional, but also that not even a constitutional amendment has the power to deprive Americans of any of these basic rights.

[6] This stupid focus on the means, not the people, has brought the banning of “assault weapons.” The ignorant politicians who passed the laws apparently ignore that for many years the assault weapon of choice in war was the bayonet. To them, an assault weapon is a rifle having some characteristics, like being full auto, using large capacity magazines, or some handle configuration. It seems that the fact that using a weapon for assault or defense only depends on the user has never crossed their narrow or ill intentioned minds.
