Gun owner or victim, which do you choose?

Here is a good follow-up opinion piece on the subject of that Radio host who plans 1000 man march on DC in defiance of Gun Control, and support of Second Amendment.  I have to agree with some of what the author is saying.  This idea has merit, but plays right into the hands of those who would like to implement stronger control, and gives them an opportunity to use these men as an example.  All it will take is a little baiting to draw fire, and this turns into a major incident.  I still am of the conviction that way more than the 1000 will show up to march, and when they do, they will have their own agenda and ideas.  This radio host won’t be able to prevent such troublemakers from showing up and from forcing a confrontation with police if that’s what they have in mind.

Here is an article  from WND.com with excellent video (warning, some profanity) about why high-capacity magazines are necessary for home defense.

 

A new video dramatization demonstrates in shocking, living color one reason gun-rights advocates resist bans on high-capacity magazines for firearms: Armed thugs don’t always attack alone.

 

The video by MB Studio Productions depicts a startling but believable scenario in which armed thieves target a house when the family is at home. The family calls 9-1-1 and the father quickly retrieves his pistol from a gun safe. But after fending off the first armed intruder, the father stands horrified after pulling the trigger on a gun now empty of bullets as the second intruder enters the home.

 

The dramatization’s final scene is tragic, and the video concludes with the words, “Because your government decided how many rounds you need to protect your family.”

 

Since the Newtown school massacre governments of all levels have attempted to limit the size of firearm magazines, effectively restricting the number of bullets a gun can hold at a given time. Oak Park, Ill., for example, bans possession of a magazine holding more than 10 rounds, and the state of New York goes even further, restricting gun owners to only seven rounds of ammunition unless using the weapon at a firing range.

 

Brian Lockerman, owner of MB Studio Productions, however, explains at the beginning of the video that the dramatized public service announcement will be only the first of many to illustrate “who these laws really effect and why they don’t work.”

 

“I am passionate about protecting our Second Amendment rights because I know this is the right that protects all other rights,” Lockerman states on an MB website. “I am not going to tell you that you have to own a gun. It’s not for everyone. But the push to take away the individual freedom and Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is rooted in fear and misunderstanding.”

 

He continues: “Your constitutional rights are threatened because anti-gun people seem to defy all reason and sanity with their beliefs and fears. Most of them have been taught literally zero about guns, have never held one in their hands and are terrified by the thought of them. We can’t approach this perception problem by simply telling our pro-self-protection, pro-gun side of the story.”

 

To that end, MB Studio Productions is planning further videos as well as a reality-based TV show emphasizing his message, called “Shoot to Thrill.”
