we lied, but.....
« on: April 02, 2009, 02:46:44 PM »
lets not let facts get in the way of agenda!


But Tom Diaz, senior policy analyst at the Violence Policy Center, called the "90 percent" issue a red herring and said that it should not detract from the effort to stop gun trafficking into Mexico.

"Let's do what we can with what we know," he said. "We know that one hell of a lot of firearms come from the United States because our gun market is wide open."

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

We lied, but......using that 90% statistic scares more people into believing we need more gun control heaped on the law-abiding citizens to stop the illegal gun trafficking  :roll:  I'd say what a bunch of maroons but that would be giving them too much credit - and take away from the danger we are facing here towards our Second Amendment rights.

"Gun Control" is a crock.  Criminals are going to get guns no matter how much control is put on purchasing.  You'd think they would figure it out...duh.

they are not worried about the criminals.  they are worried about the rest of us.

As well they should be...more and more Americans are beginning to wake up to the 1984-type scenario that our government is creating....   
It is what it is.......except when it isn't.
