Porn star wannabe Jim Carrey attacks the dead and middle America. He questions every gun owners manhood without showing any of his own.
When pundits across America lampooned his lunacy he responds with.
Of course this is the classic progressive response, depicting anyone who opposes them as heartless and against children. How long are we going to allow them to hold up children as a human shield or use emotion to replace logic and reason? The fact is that when there were no gun control laws these types of mass killings in school were unheard of. When I was a kid we hunted in the morning before school, left our guns in the car in the school parking lot and then went hunting after school. All this with the full knowledge of school officials. If you bagged a good one they would come out and look. Of course they claim that forfeiting just one more right and we will all be safer. It’s common sense right? Not really! if you look at the history of violence in the United States you will find that violence increases when the government is the most oppressive. The beginning of the last century we saw the start of the so called progressive movement with smoking bans and prohibition.
The impression given by the graph is confirmed by more sophisticated analysis. Jeffrey A. Miron has analyzed the relation between violent crime in the U.S., as measured by the murder rate, and the enforcement of drug prohibition (including alcohol prohibition) as measured by expenditures by the federal agencies in charge of enforcing prohibition (Figure 2), over the entire period for which murder rates are available on a national basis. His statistical results “suggest the homicide rate is currently 25%-75% higher than it would be in the absence of drug prohibition.”
If you notice that after the end of the first progressive era. It started to go back up at the beginning of the second progressive era, gun control and the war on drugs. The freer the people the less violence there is, gun or otherwise. So sorry Jim instead of singing about your lack of manhood and your cold dead gland. Try dealing in facts and leave your emotion at the door. It is the progressive model of Nanny Statism that breeds violence, not freedom.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Update Jim |Carrey posted on the Huffing post yesterday stating that “I Never Wanted to Take Your Guns Away”
Then he goes on to make an emotional appeal to do just that.
These mass shootings and daily body counts on your local news are terrible tragedies. The utter devastation that must be endured by the victims’ families is unfathomable. These horrific events are also an invitation for us to become more civilized and to deal with our addiction and entitlement to violence.
The problem with the above statement is that that too is a fallacy. Even the mass shooting increase as the “Nanny Statism” of the progressives as shown in the following graph.
So no matter how you paint it Jim It is Nanny Statist Progressives such as yourself that are the problem, not guns, not clips and not magazines. It is people like you and the type of government you promote.
