The Logic Of Causation

Liberals and Progressives, on an individual basis, may or may not be smart. As a group though, they’re obviously poorly educated despite how much and how often these would-be aristocrats vaunt their institutions of supposedly higher learning and disdain and deride anyone who couldn’t or just didn’t attend them.

Very basic teachings, especially the logic of causation, seem to have not been part of their curricula.

If Guns Cause Murders...
Follow The Logic Of Causation

On the face of it, this is pretty ridiculous. When you stop and really think about it though, you realize that’s not just ridiculous; it’s both ignorant and utterly inane. :lol:

I know – these are the same people whose creation myth was for decades centered upon there once being nothing – no matter, energy, space, or even time – and then, one day, it blew up!

Obviously, causation was never a significant part of their so-called educations. Hence, I probably should expect no better of them in more mundane matters.

Yep! According the “logic” taught to America’s domestic enemies, inanimate, non-self activating or motivating objects are the cause of things and need to be criminalized. Guns cause murders. Hence, cutlery must cause obesity, cars must cause accidents, and paper must cause bad laws.

It couldn’t possibly be the people using these items and, even more so, it couldn’t possibly be the case that people would just find other means to cause harm. :roll:

If they weren’t such a clear a present danger to America I’d suggest just patting them on their heads, saying, “Isn’t that special that you think that,” and sending them back to their ivory towers where they’d be no longer a danger to themselves or others…and barring the doors.

    Jonolan,

    Our rulers do not have to go after guns, when they can go after ammunition. The latest assault on the Constitution by a Democrat is a proposed law by State Senator Gibson of Florida requiring anger management classes for ammunition buyers. I keep wondering what part of the word ” infringed” in the Second Amendment do these people not understand?

    I think a class on the English language and the Constitution should be the law before anyone can run for political office in America. At least for Democrats.

  2. jonolan Says:

    Yeah, going after ammunition or making gun ownership too expensive through mandatory, punitive insurance coverage is the new ways our domestic enemies seek to disarm and enslave us.

    The solution, of course, is quite simple. Kill them. Filth like Gibson won’t be putting forward anti-American laws if they and their families are rotting in a landfill somewhere.

    It won’t happen though. Too few Americans are ready to treat our enemies as enemies, with all that entails and to wage total war against them and any of the bloodlines.

  3. Fenris Badwulf Says:

    I understand that ammunition manufacture can be done at home. Some people, I have heard, are making their own guns.

    These Stalinist statists campaign against guns and ammo will be about as effective as prohibition was against drink. It will drive it underground, into the arms of organized secret societies who will turn their monopoly of force into income streams.

    Unfortunately, the core problem is the watering down of America into a Balkan region of Gimme-American tribes, puffed up by racist propaganda, entitlements, and whore written media. Your education system has been infiltrated by Bolsheviks, and your political class are following the two billion dollar legacy of Chavez model, even as they dress up in Chavez red.

    There is a rebellion in the wind. The statists won’t squeeze until they have the guns of the peasants locked up. The peasants are being surrounded by welfare zombies. Who will squeek first?

  4. jonolan Says:

    Yes, ammunition can be made at home, but reloading has always been one of the things most strongly attacked by America’s domestic enemies and attacked in a myriad number of ways.

    Happily (sort of), rebellion IS in the wind. I just hope that enough people remember that assassination should be the first choice and widespread insurrection the last resort.

    Sadly (no matter how one looks at it), I may hope for this but have little or no reason to expect it.

  5. Ken Says:

    Nonsense. No one claims that guns cause murders. What gun-control advocates claim (and I think even the NRA agrees to) is that guns in the wrong hands increase the number of murders. They propose laws to keep guns out of the wrong hands. These proposals may or may not be good ones, but if each side of the debate could get past caricaturing the other side’s arguments, we might just get somewhere.

  6. jonolan Says:

    Sorry, Ken. You woefully wrong. It’s no caricature. The standard line of the gun-grabbers is that guns cause murders and that removing those guns is the only way to stop the murders. They may be willing to settle for incremental restrictions, but disarmament is their openly stated goal.

  7. Ken Says:

    Jonolan: Name me one example in the history of the United States when guns have been”grabbed.” Actually grabbed, that is; law abiding gun owners having their guns taken away, as opposed to the pesky inconveniences that are often characterized as “confiscation.”

  8. Alan Scott Says:

    Ken,

    How about an equivalent? In 1976 Washington DC banned residents from owning guns in their homes. I don’t know if the Washington KGB went house to house to confiscate the guns. It doesn’t matter. So you betcha there is that slippery slope. Give em an inch, they take a hundred miles.

  9. jonolan Says:

    Even limiting it to actually confiscation, it happens a lot.

    Any area which criminalized firearm ownership regularly confiscates what firearms are found and prosecutes the owners thereof, e.g., DC, NYC, and Chicago.

    NJ, NY, and MO have all enacted laws that include confiscation or mandatory turn-in or disposal out of state of a wide variety of firearms and magazines. The gun-grabber sponsored earlier versions of all these laws were even worse but didn’t make it into the final drafts.

  10. Alan Scott Says:

    Besides the obvious race war politics that the left wing TV experts are perpetrating in the George Zimmerman trial, the right to bear arms issue is definitely front and center. Mr. Zimmerman is the human sacrifice to the God of gun control. It’s been a long time since I cursed at my TV so much while listening to the outright lies. These worthless clowns can’t possibly be watching the same trial I was.
