Earlier this month I posted the above video on YouTube, which was actually the result of an unexpected encounter with an individual who came up to me during a gun rally I was covering and wanted to debate me on the issue of gun control. As I was originally just going to ask him why he was there to support the Second Amendment, I was surprised to find that he wanted to push for not only the ban of all guns in the entire world, but also all sharp objects as well.
Everything from knives, forks, nails, and even glass bottles should be banned, according to this man, who represents the face of the nanny state gun control movement. Since I posted this video earlier this month without promotion, it has since gone on to receive an organic 33,000 plus views and many insightful (and hilarious) comments. Many of the comments and emails were asking me if the man was serious, and I can definitely say with absolute certainty that he was — and he was actually there protesting the Second Amendment rally.
That said, it’s important to understand that there are actually people out there (as I’m sure we’ll see in the always interesting comment section wherever this article will be syndicated) that truly do believe that we need to ban all guns, or even all weapons of any kind, to be safe. They don’t want to talk about the fact that hands and feet kill more per year than rifles, and they don’t want to talk about the huge chunk of facts that have been highlighted over the past several decades using CDC and FBI data.
And they especially don’t want to talk about the fact that 2.5 times more people are killed in the ‘gun free’ zones of Chicago via firearms than are killed over in Afghanistan. Because after all, gun control works — just not in the way of stopping crime.
