While many people think banning AR-15s is a great first step to curb violence, it’s never going to happen.
And here’s why.
Banning AR-15s will never stop violence. It will at a minimum, maybe someday, stop violence that’s done with an AR-15. But it will never stop all violence. And it will never stop all school shootings, or all mass shootings.
And so the problem of violence, and the problem of mass shootings, will persist.
And even though it didn’t work, the same people who demanded that we ban AR-15s will next say we have to ban all semi-automatic weapons. Including handguns.
And that won’t work either.
Because even if we did it, the violence would persist.
So now the violence persists, but the law-abiding and courageous Americans who were once armed to fight back against violence — are now left with nothing.
The AR-15 has become the focal point for anti-gun activists, but there’s just no logic to it. Banning it won’t solve anything. It will just be a notch in their belt. I’d call it a pointless win, but it won’t be pointless. Because when banning the AR-15 doesn’t work, they’ll come next for all semi-automatic weapons.
And while people who support the Second Amendment and who support the NRA might not articulate it this simply, that’s why we’ll never ban AR-15s.
It’s an exercise in futility that, if acted upon, just means you’ll try to ban something else next. And that won’t work either. So we cling to our guns. And we support the NRA.
It’s not because we’re monsters.
It’s because we’re rational.
And it’s because we see through the left’s deceptions and bad, hasty decisions.
