Since the horrendous murder of those innocent children in Sandy Hook there has been much written as well as many heated debates about gun control and the right to bear arms. And of course the question of how this type of thing can be stopped or prevented would be a natural response.
The gun control trap
TPATH understands that there are many good and patriotic Americans who feel frustrated and just don’t know how to approach solving this. And while the leftists of the world, those that do not have the agenda of saving innocent lives, and who’s game plan is the free and easy oppression and control of the people, use tragedies like this to further those goals, it is very easy for the common man to fall into their trap and then, ultimately under their oppressive tyranny.
History is rife with hundreds of millions of dead and murdered citizens who’s demise can be traced to their government disarming them. This is not hyperbole or exaggeration. It is an accurate account of the blood and misery man will impose on those of his species in order to dominate and rule them.
No easy fix
For those who are looking for an easy fix, which would seem to be the outlawing of personal protection by your government, the only thing easy about the question, is the answer. And that is, there is no way to stop criminals, cultists, devil worshipers or just plain crazies from killing people. For the most part, insane as they may be, stupid they are not. They will plan, organize and arm their intended mayhem and take as long as necessary to either fabricate, steal or illegally purchase whatever tools their devious plans require.
Traffic accidents kill more children
Many of you are aware, but some may not be, children in this country are at far greater risk from death and serious injury at the hands of those driving motorized vehicles who are incompetent, aggressive, abusers of drugs and or alcohol or just plain irresponsible. The numbers are staggering. Here are a few from the National Safety council from a few years ago.
The average death toll from auto accidents for a one year period is over 50,000. More than 200,000 injured and many of them, very seriously so. Heart wrenching as it may be, 35% to 40% of those deaths and injuries are children.
Has anyone ever blamed the vehicles for this? Of course some fools have. You may recall how anyone driving an SUV was chastised by the left for having the nerve to give their children a better chance to survive a crash than some eco-nut choosing to drive a Yugo.
Regrettably, children will continue to die in traffic accidents. It can’t be stopped. But what can be done is to make very effort to keep those who would cause these accidents, out of cars. Not ban them for everyone. No one can deny, that the use of motor vehicles and the good they do, far outweighs the horrible things that can happen while using them.
Firearms are no different. In the hands of good people, they protect life and property. They help feed and nourish. They keep tyrants from knowing they can easily control their citizens and they serve as a deterrent to those that would prey on others.

Now, to TPATH’s Challenge. Only those who want guns removed form law abiding citizens need to answer these. The reason we call this a challenge is because we know, not one leftist ideologue will be able to answer these question honestly and will refuse to answer after reading any one of them. These questions require yes or no answers. This type of clarity always befuddles the left. But here goes.
Please answer YES or NO to each question.
- Is it possible to pass a law that criminals and the insane will abide?
- Is it possible to keep criminals from manufacturing and selling guns?
- If your child was in a school or location away from home, would he be safer if there were armed guards there?
- If you are a politician, movie star or some other elite with armed guards protecting you, would you feel safer if those guards were not allowed to be armed?
- Do you think your safety is less important than the safety of the societal elites?
- Do you trust this government or any government to do the right thing if they do not fear the people?
- Would you be willing to wait minutes for police to come to your aide, if you only had seconds to live?
- If your wife and child were in a situation where they could not escape and a crazed maniac was in the process of murdering everyone, would you like to know that an armed citizen was in that room?
If you answered NO to questions #3 and #8, you may not want to face your family if they find out you would sacrifice them for an ideology.
To all the friends of liberty and Constitutional rights, please take these questions with you and ask them to anyone who believes the government should be allowed take away his rights and yours.
It will be interesting to see how many of them will answer even one of these questions.
