Okay, done with the snark.
Truthfully, the only thing that gun control laws accomplishes is disarming the victims.

"It's about believing in something, and letting that belief be real enough to change your life."--Shepherd Derrial BookFor those who don't know, the first two quotes are from a character from the television show Firefly, created by the same man who gave America Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The second quote in particular comes from the movie, where the Shepherd (a wandering minister in the series) has settled down on a planet, and is speaking to another character, Mal Reynolds, about a danger he's in. The villain of the piece, the Alliance, had sent an assassin after another character under Mal's protection, an assassin who believed strongly that the Alliance was trying to create a world without "sin." The assassin would do anything to bring about that world; from the strength of his belief came the strength of a juggernaut, and no one that didn't believe could stand against him.
"I don't care what you believe in, just believe in it." --Ibid.
"You've got to stand for somethin' or you'll fall for anything."--Aaron Tibble
"First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics."
"Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different 'branches and denominations' were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the 'winning' side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another."Karl Marx himself said that religion is the opiate of the masses. Communists, those who don't believe in anything but their own power and privilege, and who use those who believe in the ideals, sneer at religion in general, and at Christianity in specific. Why? I believe it is because Christianity in specific calls for moral absolutes set by someone other than the government.
"The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe."
