The Economist Calls For Repealing Second Amendment

Banker-owned publication tells Americans “If you want to be safer, change the constitution”

The Economist has called for “drastic gun control” in the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy, saying that the Constitution should be amended to ban all guns on a national scale.

In a brazen editorial published on its website this past weekend, the Bilderberg endorsed outlet notes “If America is ever to confront its obsession with guns, that time is now.”

The piece compares Adam Lanza’s rampage in Newtown to an incident in China, where a deranged maniac recently attacked a classroom of children with a knife. Because firearms are banned in the Communist state, none of the children were killed. ” Every country has its madmen” argues the editorial, intimating that living under a tyrannical government regime is preferable because your children are safer.

The article also compares US murder rates to those of Britain and Germany, contending that more guns equates to more homicides. ” America’s murder rate is four times higher than Britain’s” the editorial suggests, without noting that the population of the US is approximately six times larger than that of Britain, and that when firearms were banned in the UK, gun crime exploded.

The piece then calls for the reinstatement of the assault rifle ban and an end to “gun-show exemption” from background checks, before outright calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment.

“If you want to be safer, change the constitution” the editorial suggests, in a remark that would have Benjamin Franklin spinning. “The great bulk of America’s murders are committed with ‘ordinary’ handguns,” the piece adds, arguing that gun control legislation needs to become all encompassing.

“Handgun bans, such as those that operated in Chicago and Washington, DC, before the Supreme Court struck them down, would be needed on a national scale.” the piece continues.

“Gun licences, obtainable only after extensive police and medical review as in most other civilised countries, would be needed for hunting and sporting weapons.” the editorial adds, outlining a plan for full scale disarmament of the American people.

“Tough police action, coupled with an extensive “buy-back” programme, would be needed to mop up the hundreds of millions of guns that are already held.” the piece adds, ridiculously comparing taking guns away from Americans to sweeping some sort of unsightly mess under the rug.

“If, as seems probable, this is held to conflict with the constitution, then the constitution needs to be amended.” the piece states in a final audacious and tawdry conclusion.

The editors admit that “None of this is likely to happen soon”; too right, not before a full scale civil war breaks out.

Of course, one would fully expect this kind of offering from a British based “newspaper” that is for the most part owned by the Rothschild banking family and a group of shareholders intrinsically tied to the world’s megabanks.

The piece represents the latest knee jerk and unconsidered offering from the corporate media, calling for completely disarming and re-educating the populace.

A week ago Reuters argued that “Obama should treat gun control like LBJ did civil rights”, outlining a plan for gun-control education programs to be initiated in schools.

A horde of Hollywood celebrities have also jumped on the gun control bandwagon, without hesitation and without consideration that the disengaged unreality of mass culture many of them ceaselessly promote could be more of a major factor in such rare and tragic acts of wanton violence.

    Government promotes criminal behavior through leniency, and giving the false impression to the American public that the justice system is designed to protect them. The justice system is designed to clean up the mess after the fact. The only one responsible for your and others safety is you.

    The following are 25 facts that the mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about right now…
    #1 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that gun sales are absolutely skyrocketing in the aftermath of the horrific tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
    #2 The mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about the fact that disarming the population has resulted in some of the most horrific massacres in human history. The following is from the Warrior Times…
    1911 – Turkey disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1915 – 1917 they murdered 1.5 million Armenians.
    1929 – Russia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1929 – 1953 they murdered 20 million Russians.
    1935 – China disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1948 – 1952 they murdered 20 million Chinese.
    1938 – Germany disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1939 – 1945 they murdered 16 million Jews.
    1956 – Cambodia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1975 – 1977 they murdered 1 million Educated people.
    1964 – Guatamala disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1964 – 1981 they murdered 100,000 Mayan Indians.
    1970 – Uganda disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1971 – 1979 they murdered 300,000 Christians.

    ” Obama needs to repent and put God and the Bible back in public schools and the government…….If you don’t believe me, just check out the history of when God and the Bible first started being removed from schools and government and then track crime rates, drug use and other moral issues. I did a few years ago and found a direct correlation between the removal of God and the cultural decline of American society.”
    Some helpful facts:
    FACT: Two-thirds of the people that die each year from gunfire are criminals shooting other criminals~~~~(FBI Uniorm Crime Statistics)
    FACT: The non-gun homicide rate for children in the U.S. is more than twice as high than other western countries. Eight times as many children die from non-gun violent acts than from gun crimes.~~~~(Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention)
    FACT: 82% of homicides to children age 13 and under were committed without a gun.~~~~(FBI Uniform Crime Statistics)
    FACT: There are more guns in the U.S. than cars (228,000,000 guns according to the 1998 FBI statistics and 207,754,000 automobiles according to the 1998 Federal Highway Administration registrations). Yet, you are 31 times more likely to be accidentally killed by a car than a gun …despite cars having been registered and licensed for more than 100 years.~~~~(National Safety Council)
    FACT: 90% of all violent crime in the U.S. does not involve any gun of any type.
    ~~~~(Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms)
    FACT: Guns prevent an estimated 2.5 million crimes a year, or 6,849 per day or once every 13 seconds.
    ~~~~(Gary Kleck, Criminologist, Florida State Univ/ Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology)

    FACT: Armed citizens kill more crooks than do the police. Citizens shoot and kill at least twice as many criminals as police do every year (1,527 to 606).. only 2 percent of civilian shootings involved an innocent person mistakenly identified as a criminal. The ‘error rate’ for the police, however, was 11 percent, more than five times as high.~~~~(www.gunowners.org)
    Gun control has nothing to do with guns….and everything to do with control….of YOU.

    Clinton enacted an assault weapons ban from 1994-2004, here’s the results:
    11/15/95 – Lynville, Tn School shooting
    2/2/96 – Moses Lake, Wa School shooting
    2/19/97 – Bethel, Ak School shooting
    10/1/97 – Pearl, Ms School shooting
    12/1/97 – West Paducah, Ky School shooting
    4/24/98 – Edinboro, Pa School shooting
    5/21/98 – Springfield, Or School shooting
    4/20/99 – Columbine, Co School shooting
    5/20/99 – Conyers, Ga School shooting
    11/2/99 – Honolulu, Hi Office Shooting
    12/26/00 – Wakefield, Ma Office Shooting
    3/5/01 – Santee, Ca School Shooting
    3/22/01 El Cajon, Ca School Shooting

    Gun control is not about guns, it is about control.
    The destruction of the gun owner right to be armed is also the destruction of the Constitution and Bill of rights which is your only protection from the politicians and evil doers.
    Best that people understand that after gun control equals gun confiscation then slavery or death.
    The Constitution is the law of the land in America, let’s keep it that way and stay free.

    People who plan these murder events count on you being unarmed and easy prey.
    It seems most are under the influence of drugs and along with that there are no
    moral guide lines. Mass murder becomes very easy. All that is required is an easy target.

    That makes a very good reason to keep your guns as a matter
    of protecting your family and yourself. Other than that, there are very good
    reasons politically to keep your fire arms.

    The battle to control and to enslave others for personal reasons has been going
    on since Cain and Able. Government uses gun control to control its people.

    Many of these poor people who were killed and hurt in these planed incidents
    could have been rescued if there had been a gun in the hands of a competent
    person present. A gun is nothing more than a tool in the hands of the person
    using it (for good or evil). A tool that keeps you free.

    America became an armed nation when its good people fought for its independence
    from Britain. As a result America is America and not a British colony simply because
    good people were armed and fought for freedom against and evil ruler who wanted
    to enslave the people he was suppose to care for. It stills works the same today.

    It is a God given right and Constitutional right to live as a freeman and to
    own gun(s) to protect that right. Be it self defense or defense from the politicians who would enslave you.

    It is a God given right to protect and defend and not allow others
    to do harm to you or your family or neighbor.

    You want protection and security? Then arm and train yourself and you will be
    free and respected.

    The only way to protect our schools and children is for good people to protect
    them.

    “Train and Arm the school faculty” so they can protect themselves and
    their students!

    YOU GET TRAINED, so you can serve and protect yourself and others.

    Restore the Constitution, morally and the Bible in our schools.

    Anyone who thinks you can disarm all the people of this country is delusional.

    And even if all the guns were removed from the public there are still knives,
    clubs and other forms of weapons available including your automobile. (GET
    REAL)

    Only an idiot or fool would give up his guns and leave themselves open to
    attack from the thugs in public and in politics.

    Your public servant would soon become your public slave master and you would be
    an easy target to murder, rape or steal from.

    Before you commit yourselves to that type of servitude and death, you had
    better think about it real good.

    It is and easy conclusion for me.

    Stay strong and grow in faith.

    Never will I turn my family and myself over to be abused

    BUNCH OF SATANISTS!!! And Archangel, yeah, they do want to start a “Civil War!” They want the masses to kill each other off, while their FAT ASSES sit back and watch! I mean a Second Grader can figure this stuff out, yet those that still have jobs are too damned tired and too concerned about putting food on the table and paying bills to have much strength left at the end of the day to do very much. ALL BY DESIGN!!! Why don’t you “Globalist” scumbags start offing yourselves, that’ll save the Lord some time?

    Seems the elite, the bankers, the corporatists and the politicians who are controlled by the bankers and corporatists are afraid of the 2nd Amendment. Good reason, too, as the 2nd amendment is a right of the people to take back their government from tyranny and arbitrary rule.

    All this talk to take our guns away will do nothing but start a civil war .
    Maybe that`s what they want . .
    With 40 to 50 percent of a 300million population already owning guns who do you think will win.
    Take the criminals off the streets instead. First Wall street ,then the District of Columbia Corp
    then go from there.

    The real culprits are not the guns as all really know and the NY Times tells it all when they lay the blame on the video games that deliver hour after hour of practice with realistic replicas of the latest Bushmaster or Glock and then at the end of the game give the link to where the gun is advertised so you can go and peruse the equipment first hand. The CT shooter had a gaming room all to himself, was not in school, was not employed, and was disabled mentally in someway (that was common knowledge in the town). He was known to have been adept at these games and had practiced shooting with his mother. He was a loner, He knew he was being denied his privacy and his gaming room by being sent to a facility. Who knows perhaps he already had experience in one of these “Facilities”. He was obviously hurt and angry. What do they do on these games? Kill. Read the New York Times article from 12/25/2012 “Real and Virtual Firearms Nurture a Marketing Link” and find out what should be banned. People kill as it takes a directed finger to pull the trigger and might I add an educated finger at that.

    Thats just typical of rich zionist kike bankers who want to control everything.The rothchilds,bilderbergs go F yourselves u bunch losers who distort the true facts on Guns!
    I know a lot of people dont like Ted Nugent but he schooled Piers Morgan” THE ENGLISH DOUCHE BAG”on gun statistics and made him look stupid,well cause he is. Gun free zones are only gun free to law abiding people,where there are gun free zones there is more crime. Just look at Shitcago,il. even Connteticut ”however u spell it” is ranked 5th in crime in the US. Ted Nugent is also a County Sheriff where he resides in Michigan so I think he knows more about the law and crime statistics than some foreigners who want to take our guns away.
