If you like your gun, you can keep your gun

21guns_fire600Gun owners and freedom-loving Americans are often considered by anti-gunners to be conspiracy theorists when arguing that the government’s intended plan is not just gun control, but gun confiscation.  However, perhaps Obama’s famous utterances about his healthcare mess over the past dozen months will bring clarity to those who want a disarmed America.

Obama was recorded no less than 29 times telling the American people that “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan”, a claim that has been repeatedly proven false in insurance cancellation letters sent to average Americans.  Apparently, Obama is “sorry” that so many Americans fell into the trap that he set for them, losing health benefits that they liked and forced into purchasing a more expensive alternative.

Although the White House’s spin machine claims that the president meant “only if your healthcare plan hasn’t changed”, most Americans know the truth.  The president lied.  The White House has been caught directly lying to the American people about one of the most unpopular pieces of legislation ever signed into law.  The fact is the majority of Americans cannot keep their healthcare plans because Obamacare’s new regulations force insurance companies to change them.  The president knew this.  The president LIED.

Naturally, it is no real surprise that gun-owners of America are inherently fearful that the government’s claim “nobody wants to take your guns” is, just like the president’s healthcare claim, a LIE.

It should come as no real twist of logic that people naturally become distrustful of entities that have proven themselves untrustworthy.  Would you put your trust in someone who repeatedly lies to you?  Then why do so many anti-gunners feel that freedom-loving Americans are simply wrapped around the conspiracy axle with their distrust of the official government line?

If our government lies to the American people about something as important as our healthcare, what makes people believe that the government would suddenly tell the truth about gun ownership?  I recognize that chalking this up to a conspiracy is a simple answer and the easiest way to marginalize legitimate fear, but history of our government tells a very different tale.

Here is a good example of the hilarious anti-gun mind at work, from the DailyKos, of course.  ”If you are using a gun with an extended clip…we want to take your gun.”  Unbeknownst to author “themoderateman”, that statement refers to absolutely any gun that is not a revolver, because virtually any gun can accept an extended “clip”.  Also, please ignore the usage of the word “clip” rather than “magazine” – most anti-gunners have never shot a gun in their lives and, as a result, rarely possess the ability to discuss them intelligently.

Or, let’s take this one: “If you are currently intoxicated with alchohol (typo uncorrected) or some other drug…give us your gun, right now.”  Any time you get intoxicated, the government should have the ability to take your gun away from you, even if you’re not using it.  Wonderful!

Or better yet, the second to last paragraph:

Bottom line, as a person of principle, not an etch a sketch faux varmint hunter, let me be clear, you can keep a gun to hunt, you can keep a reasonable handgun to protect your property and person, and you can keep your goofy gun collections but you MAY NOT HAVE SICKO GUNS DESINGED TO DO NOTHING OTHER THAN KILL PEOPLE!!!!  We liberals want to take THOSE GUNS away.  We really do!

We have yet another emotionally-driven argument from an emotional liberal who unknowingly supports the confiscation of virtually EVERY weapon in the United States, but then allows some gun use out of the kindness of his heart for those tasks that HE believes to be worthy of gun ownership.

Impressive, isn’t it?

Just remember, if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan.
