This is Part 1 of a 3-part series on n how to prepare and protect your family with your guns when you life depends on it:
I encourage you to start at the beginning because I’m asking you to read all three blog posts.
Part 1 [You Are Here]
Here’s the thing…
I guess that many of you who are used to the many gun laws modern society has imposed upon us would begin to laugh at me…
And even tell me that I am crazy if I were to tell you that in the past you could carry a gun as carelessly as you could carry a bag.
No one would ask you and tell you anything about it and that was definitely very good in my opinion.
However, the freedom of carrying a loaded gun that you could use whenever you wanted has lasted for a short while, since a lot of people have started to use their guns to open fire in situations that called for nothing more than common sense.
1. Mass murders
Many of us recall that faithful day in the history of Boonesborough, a small town in Kentucky, when a sniper opened fire on the one hundred and thirty five residents of the city, terrorizing and killing many of them. This was an unprovoked attack which was later on discovered to be caused by a group of four hundred mercenary French, Cherokee and Shawnee Canadians. During this massacre, women, children, men and also cattle have been killed with no remorse.
Daniel Boone, an inhabitant of the city who learned the attacker’s position, quietly waited for his next shot in the attempt of taking him down.
When the smoke of the sniper’s rifle emerged after he shot and killed one more person, Boone knew that was his chance to eliminate the sniper and he took the target down by firing his gun. He had no laser sight and he also didn’t have a high end gun to get the job done.
What was very impressive is the fact that he managed to take down the attacker from more than two hundred yards away by shooting him right in the head.
2. World War 2 weapons for sale
A lot of guns were made available to the general public after the Second World War ended and no matter if you wanted to purchase sniper rifles, pistols, hand grenades or even heavy machine guns, you could easily get them for the right price. While the price was indeed very high back then, it seems that this wasn’t an impediment to the folks who wanted them more than anything.
Soon, millions of weapons were spread throughout Europe, Asia, Ireland and America, becoming a key component of the many revolutions that were fought from that point onwards.
3. Guns sold for profitability
Browning and Auto Ordinance was one of the most popular gun manufacturers of the time and they were responsible for the highly popular Thompson sub machine guns that made a name for themselves soon after they were launched on the market. The company was making weapons just so that its name and reputation can increase and it seems that this strategy was very effective, since they reached their goal eventually.
4. Gun laws of today stem from the wrong use of weapons in the past
Every single time you hear about a massacre on the news, sooner or later you’ll undoubtedly hear someone say the gun laws should be changed. While the government may try and regulate the use of guns and ask people to submit more information about themselves and go through a more thorough background check, you could never impose a law that would prevent everyone from using weapons.
In fact, when the gun laws are too restrictive, citizens won’t be late to protest against this, since hey, at the end of the day they do need to protect themselves from someone who has a gun and threats them and their family.
5. The police shootings of Oakland in 2009
During a traffic stop, a person who was convicted for violating a traffic law in the past decided he would take things into his own hands by killing the 2 police officers that have dared stopping him in traffic. Even worse, he then tried to escape and in the process managed to ambush 2 more SWAT officers who tried to apprehend him. The officers were killed in the ambush and another officer was injured. Later on, the felon was shot dead in an exchange of gunfire. As for the weapon of choice, he used an SKS rifle and a nine millimeter semi-automatic handgun.
6. No liability to protect
The thing is that in a situation when you are threatened by someone holding a gun in your face, even if the police intervenes, there is no guarantee that you’ll make it out alive. If you are an avid news watcher, then a lot of examples will immediately come to mind when the lack of liability to protect individuals led to gruesome massacres and this dates as far back as the eighteen hundreds.
Don’t you find it rather surprising that the law enforcement in the US swears to protect the peace, but they don’t do anything they can in order to protect a single individual from harm?
7. Laws can be easily interpreted
One thing about laws is that they’re open to interpretation and even if the police is ready to fulfill its oath by serving and protecting the citizens and maintaining peace, in the majority of cases criminal activities happen so fast that officers find it hard to swiftly respond and catch the perpetrator.
8. Gun permits are not recognized by the state of New Jersey
Okay, let’s say that everyone is okay with not having a gun, since the police guarantee they can protect literally everyone.
But wait a minute, criminals don’t obey the law and the police can’t be anywhere, so how will you be able to protect yourself in such situations?
Things are even worse in New Jersey, since here the local government doesn’t recognize gun permits and if you’re caught with a gun, then you’re in big trouble.
It’s something that happened to Revell who didn’t check the gun laws in the state before stopping by. He thought that he’d be under the FOPA regulations, since he was just passing by and the guns were in cases that were not even opened. As a result, he was jailed for four days and then released with no charges.
Having the possibility of owning a gun in order to protect yourself and your family from attackers and thieves is one of the most debated topics in both online and offline media, especially after incidents involving the use of weaponry take place.
