Week in Review
Liberal Democrats want to take away our guns. In fact they’d like to repeal the Second Amendment. For people having guns in the household leads to gun crime. They like to point to Tucson, Aurora, Virginia Tech and Sandy Hook. Crimes they say would not have happened if there were no guns. Take away the guns and you take away these crimes. And you make our households safer. For without guns in the home there is no chance for domestic violence. There will be no women being shot by angry men. And no children dying if a parent goes off in a fit of anger and shoots them. For if there are no guns there can be no violence. The left believes this. At least they keep telling us this.
For guns make people kill. And without guns there will be nothing to make people kill. Luckily for the British they have no guns in their households. And live a life of peace and serenity the Americans can only dream about (see Domestic violence puts 10,000 at high risk of death or serious injury by Sandra Laville posted 2/26/2014 on the guardian).
More than 10,000 women and children are at high risk of being murdered or seriously injured by current or former partners, according to police assessments obtained by the Guardian…
But the figures obtained are likely to be an underestimate as domestic violence is heavily under-reported and police forces appear to gather and collate the information in several different ways, despite demands for a national protocol on assessing the risk to victims. The snapshot obtained by the Guardian reveals the acute nature of the threat of domestic violence for thousands of women and children…
Last year a coroner in Derbyshire found that police failures had contributed to the deaths of Rachael Slack and her two-year-old son, who were stabbed to death by her estranged partner. Slack had also been assessed as at high risk of homicide, but officers failed to inform her.
Or maybe not.
The obvious response to stop this domestic violence is to take away knives from British households. For apparently taking away their guns wasn’t enough. Then they should probably take away rope from the home. For they may make someone strangle someone. Blunt instruments, too. For they can make people kill, too. And poisons. Got to remove them from the home. Of course a man can beat and choke someone with his bare hands. So you better get those out of the household, too.
Of course, we have crossed over into the ridiculous. For it’s not these things that are killing women and children. It’s the people using them. And when one is not available they will look for another. So probably the best way to protect a woman and her children is to give that woman a gun. For if she has a gun it doesn’t matter how big her attacker is or how big the knife is he is threatening her with. Because all the strength she needs is that required to pull the trigger. And the big man with the big knife will fall. Even if he’s 200 pounds heavier. And a foot and a half taller. For there is nothing that empowers a woman more than a gun.
