More efficient and effective killing machinery was invented for the purpose threatening, maiming and killing. As a result, those most lacking in ethics, morals and integrity most easily sought and gained access to the most lethal of weaponry. Again, why does this matter?
Tyranny by definition means;
:oppressive power<every form of tyranny over the mind of man — Thomas Jefferson>; especially : oppressive power exerted by government <the tyranny of a police state>
a : a government in which absolute power is vested in a single ruler; especially : one characteristic of an ancient Greek city-state
b : the office, authority, and administration of a tyrant
: a rigorous condition imposed by some outside agency or force <living under the tyranny of the clock — Dixon Wecter>
: an oppressive, harsh, or unjust act : a tyrannical act<workers who had suffered tyrannies>
Tyranny by any definition is anti-human and brutal. The 20th century proved itself to be one of the deadliest centuries known to man. Killing machinery at the hands of “little gods” like Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Linen, Po Pot, Charves, religious groups such as radical Islamist and others made elimination of opposing individuals and groups possible. What's left when the opposition has been murdered, Tyranny.
None will dare openly oppose mass murders, but are force to operate underground and covertly. Any open desire to resist often resulted in imprisonment till death, or murder. But, this level of extermination could not have been accomplished at the magnitude of over a billion murdered under Communism, Socialism, Marxism, Theocracy or any other tyrannical form of centralized government, if the populous was not first made defenseless. In other words, they were unarmed and therefore denied the right and responsibility of self defense. But, why do guns matter?
A gun is an inanimate object. It can not clean itself. It can not move itself. It can not load, point or fire itself. Any actions or functions a gun takes, requires the involvement of a user. The user is usually the person holding the gun. Because of its design a gun has limited purposes and uses. It can be used as a hammer, a paper weight or even a door stop. If a gun of any design, is used as it was designed and intended, it is a weapon and as a weapon, it can be used as aggression or for protection. What causes fear to Liberals and Communist alike is its use for personal protection first, and aggression against
Centralized Government Tyranny second. But, why do Progressives fear guns?
Progressives in the United States, are Communist, they will change their labels often and depending on how detrimental the label has become. In the 1920's and '30's, they called themselves Communist. When popularity of that term became unfavorable, they became liberals. When the term “Liberal” proved to mean anti-American, it changed to Progressive. All the terms, Progressive, Liberal, Fabian Socialist, Socialist, Nazi's, Marxist, Maoist all are Communist and can be found in large numbers in the Democrat Party, a little lesser in the Republican Party. They all are doing in the same direction, but at a different pace and from a different direction with the same goal; the destruction of America. But, what does this have to do with guns?
