As long as we are banning stuff…

American Thinker

If  the 2nd Amendment is responsible for Newtown, Conn. then let’s have a look at  what really kills Americans. Guilty and innocents alike. Let’s legislatively ban  the obviously responsible parties in each category of unnecessary death. (using  Left-think)

Smoking related  deaths –  434,000+

We  have to immediately punish all tobacco retailers for these deaths. And the people who smoke  tobacco. And who manufacture matches and cigarette lighters. In fact, we must  immediately ban all forms of combustible weeds.

Obesity related  deaths –  300,000+

Ban  all food. Now. It’s nearly too late.

Medical mistake-related  deaths –  225,000+

Appoint  VP Joe Biden to Chair a Blue Ribbon Panel to determine what must be done to  prevent medical mistakes, Funeral Directors cheer. Casket manufacturer stock prices soar.

Poor or non-existent health  care-related deaths – 100,000+

Know  who’s getting your healthcare? Prisoners, illegal aliens and welfare recipients.  That’s why Grandpa can’t have nicer catheters.

Vehicle related deaths and  costs –  42,000+

Maybe  this is the secret to Government Motors, et al. Eliminate vehicles and thus eliminate unplanned death. Note I said  unplanned death.

The  top five accidental death categories are – Choking (2,500 p/annum) Fire (2,700  p/annum) Falling (25,000 p/annum) Poisoning (39,000 p/annum) and vehicle (already listed) Obviously we must rid our culture  of things that choke, any means of combustion,  we must all slither on our  bellies like snakes to keep from falling and well, as to poisoning? Hard to  reconcile with the Left’s predilection for drugs and illegal  drugs.

And  then there’s abortion. Abortion is death, after all.

Abortion;  death of the most innocent. A total of 827,609 abortions were reported to CDC  for 2007. In 2008, approximately 1.21 million abortions took place in the  U.S.

No  current data is available. Or, bluntly – 3,325 every day of the year in 2008,  meaning 139 innocent lives every hour. Or, 5.3 Newtown catastrophes every hour  for an entire year, round the clock. Clearly sexual congress must be outlawed  since it can lead to the death of an innocent child. Because it’s all about the  children, isn’t it?

My  head can’t wrap around the logic of the Left shouting for law-abiding, well  mannered, adult American citizens – from whom the government derives its right  to govern – to have their 2nd Amendment weapons forcibly taken from them when  the same political crowd not only endures the staggering volume of termination  of innocent life on a scale that would make Hitler cringe, but glories in  it.

Tell  you what. The Left gives up Roe v. Wade, renounces it and never again goes near  the question of abortion and I will afterwards agree to a “national  conversation” about the 2nd Amendment and what it really meant to the Framers.  They go first. That will signal their sincerity. Absolute constitutional  rejection and elimination of abortion.

What’s  that? Getting rid of abortion will cause needless death and anguish? It’s a  woman’s right to protect her body from others who don’t have the right to tell  her how to preserve and defend her sovereignty, especially as pertains to her  safety and well being?

You  don’t say.

American  Thinker contributor Paul Kengor accurately penned the Left’s invincible  ignorance. In relation to the question of guns, that invincible ignorance is  married to a mind bending hypocrisy that is so far beyond the pale there is no  reaching them.

But  we must soldier on.

BTW  – how many armed men protect Mayor Bloomberg and why is he more important than  you? I thought being a citizen meant we are all equal before the  Law?

  1. The libs don’t regard unborn babies as people.

    If Lanza had killed all of his victims while they were still in the womb, the Left would be applauding women’s rights instead of feigning compassion in order to exploit a shooting and further their gun control agenda.

    • They do in some cases. As liberal as Calif is, the courts still charged Peterson with the death of his wife and unborn child.

  2. Yes, I recall the Scott Peterson case. Obviously libs only consider unborn children as people when it fits their agenda.

  3. Ronald Reagan: We must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

  4. Can we ban Liberals teaching school?

  5. There should be a class action lawsuit against the CT school district for failing to provide a safe environment for the students. There is after all a reasonable expectation of safety when you drop your children off at school and they are in the care of “professionals.”

    Unfortunately, liberals run our school system.

    How can liberals who do not believe in self-preservation possibly protect our children while in their care?

    Clearly they cannot.
