Gun Control: How the Left Ignores the Track Record of Nations With Legal Firearms

Those on the left side of the political spectrum have long sought to severely limit or ban the private ownership of firearms in the United States. These people fail to understand the original intent of the Second Amendment which was to protect citizens from a tyrannical government. However, it is just that exact reason where their animosity towards firearms is derived. The left aspires to large government and anything that stands in their way they want to eliminate.

Firearms were central to the founding of the United States. Yes, certainly they were the armament of the revolutionaries who began our nation but they also were the way that early settlers could hunt for food to feed their families as well as defend against hostiles. There are as many privately owned guns in this nation as there are citizens to use them but what the left does not understand is that they cannot legislate these weapons into non-existence, as much as they wish they could.


Guns: A Tale of Two Countries by Alex Newsom

Guns are not the problem, and I speak from personal experience. Growing up in two countries with dramatically different attitudes and laws on firearms — one nation where civilian gun ownership is banned, the other where it is mandatory for many — gave me unique insight into this issue.

As the debate on guns and gun control rages in America, I can’t help but think back on lessons learned during my childhood. It’s not quite a tale of two cities, but almost.

In the most peaceful country on earth, it was not unusual for me to see children on bikes or young men on trains openly carrying fully automatic weapons over their shoulder as if it was nothing. Nobody even bothered to look twice. Guns in closets or above kitchen cupboards were ubiquitous in family homes.  

In one of the most violent nations on Earth, by contrast, only criminals and government agents — many of them vile criminals, too — could be seen with a weapon in public. And yet, murder and mayhem are ubiquitous there.

Let me share with you a bit about my upbringing. While I lived in eight different countries on four continents over the years, the two nations I’m going to tell you about stick in my mind — for very different reasons. I subconsciously learned a lot, and I think you will too.
