Divided by the Whitehouse

Excerpt From

 Abraham Lincoln’s Lyceum Address  January 27, 1838

“Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia, and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest, with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force take a drink from the Ohio or make a track on the Blue Ridge in a trial of a thousand years. At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer. If it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us; it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen we must live through all time or die by suicide.”

Lincoln understood that a house divided could not stand. “If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher.”

For those of us that firmly believe in the second amendment, we are being bamboozled.  But even worse off, the gun haters who are buying into the misdirection and divisive tactics of the Whitehouse administration and yes, our president.

From the very first post California islamic terrorist attack press conference, Barack Hussein Obama began shifting the blame to the lack of gun control laws and the left wingers bit into it in a big way.  Think about this, he wouldn’t even say there was potential terrorism here, but he would say this tragedy proves the need for more gun control laws. Blame the guns, not the criminals.

This has been expanded upon in every subsequent press conference by the Whitehouse and further expanded upon by the left and liberal biased media and every liberal with access to social media.  In rebuttal, the pro-gun nation has responded in kind trying to defend their position.  It’s become a reinvigorated national debate.  Just spend a few hours on Facebook and look at the inordinate amount of space devoted to these two sides going after each other.  It’s epidemic!  We’re being distracted.

This is just what the Whitehouse intended and we fell into their trap.  We’re are no longer focused on, and united by, a common threat (Islamic Terrorism) we’re divided by our passions over an issue that is distracting us from the reality of crime and terror.

Now is the time for us to be united, liberal and conservative, and this divisive Whitehouse has managed to put a wedge between us on this issue like so many other issues under the current regime’s watch.  At the very time in which we should be united against a common enemy……..we’re divided.

Why is the Whitehouse and the president trying to build division amongst us?

It’s a diversionary tactic and we’re all buying into it.  Barack Hussein Obama does not want to deal with the problem of the Islamic State (ISIS) or domestic Islamic terrorism.  We can speculate on his motives all day long, but why?  It really doesn’t matter what his motives are because he’s not going to do anything about these issues anyway.  He wants to kick the can down the road and leave this mess to a Republican administration which is certain to be elected next year.  Then when the new administration gets into a ground war in the middle east, he will not have been a part of it.  This pussy gets to keep his skirt clean and blame it on the Republicans?  So while we’re spending our time debating gun control, we’ve taken our eyes of the immediate threat and are not pursuing or insisting on actions and solutions to Islamic Terrorism both domestic and abroad.

So, it’s our responsibility to get the train back on the tracks.  The gun haters are perfectly content to blame the guns.  We, as supporters of the second amendment need to focus our energy on what’s important, being safe from Islamic terrorism and crime.  We need to do a better job of directing the national consensus back to this goal.

How do we do start to do that? Stop wasting your time arguing with liberal idiots about gun control and get the focus back on the real issue.  My friend Don always says”  Never argue with an idiot.  Because, sooner or later, to get them to understand you, you’re going to have to lower yourself to their level.”

How to talk to a Liberal?

So the next time you’re confronted with,

“We need gun control because you’re more likely to be killed by a gun in a crime, than by a terrorist.”

Your answer should be, “you’re right, I agree.  I agree that today I’m more likely to be killed by a criminal than a terrorist.  But where I come from, a terrorist is a criminal, whether they use a gun, a knife, a bomb or an airplane.”

Now, follow up with a question, “What do you think we should do about terrorism in light of the fact that they’ll use any means necessary to kill people?”

Don’t get into the debate with them over gun control, you’re not going to waste your time with that.  You’ve engaged them now, told them they were right or so they think and even asked them for advise on the real problem.  Bingo, you’ve done it.  You’ve got them past the issue of gun control and moved them in a direction of thinking about the real threat terrorism.

“There are more guns in this country than people, we don’t need all these guns and should get rid of them.”

Your answer, “ You’re right, we do have more guns than people, and with what’s going on with ISIS, in France and now here, gun sales for personal protection are on the rise.”  “People are really concerned over their personal safety,”  “What do you think they should do?”

Again you’ve agreed with them on some level, you’ve outlined a threat of which they have obviously ignored, and asked question that they probably haven’t thought about.  You see, their focus is the guns and the control, they’re not thinking about the real and actual threats.  This is exactly what the Whitehouse and liberals want………  Instead of wasting your time arguing about Guns and Gun Control, you’ve now got them pondering your questions and this will force them to consider the real problem.  It will redirect their focus where it belongs.

“All the NRA cares about is getting money by lobbying for Gun Manufacturers.”

You’re reply, “yes your right, they are the biggest gun lobby and aside from their membership fees, they probably get a lot of money from gun manufacturers.”  “They must spend a lot of money on protecting their clients and the second amendment.”  

“You know, I looked at their website, they do a lot of gun safety training and even have advise for people who aren’t gun owners, like, how to teach your children about gun safety, even if you don’t own a gun.”  “With all of the gun owners out there, I bet our kids have gone into homes with guns in them and we didn’t even know it.”  

“It’s probably a good ideal to teach our children about gun safety, have you ever talked to your kids about what to do if they ever see a gun in someones house?” 

You’ve agreed with them, educated them and once again asked them a question that might get them thinking about the importance of gun safety.  If they have children, I bet they go online and at least give it a look.

In these three examples, you can see that it’s more important that we get people motivated to deal with the most pressing issues. You’re not going to change someones mind on gun control in a conversation at a party or interacting on social media, so don’t waste your time.  Instead, use that time to help get them focused and enlighten them on the issues that matter.

Whether Barack Hussein Obama and his administration are kicking the can down the road for the next president or want to end American as we know it, we can’t become an unwitting partner.  It’s clear that they want to use gun control as a diversion and the left is willing to go along.  Let’s not fall into this trap and use this opportunity to guide the misguided.

“I know you can fight but, it’s our wits that make us men”  Words of wisdom from Malcolm Wallace to his son William (Braveheart).
