There was a time when the term Fourth Estate meant something.
Indeed, One of the Founders, I think Jefferson said that the country could do without the three branches of government as long as it had the Fourth Estate to hold leaders to account and defend the people against improper acts leading to dictatorship — of course slightly tongue in cheek.
He was not an anarchist, of course.
Today’s problem is that the most radical socialist hating American system people control both the Democratic Party and the media in all its technological aspects except for a precious few still maintaining conservatism under GOD.
To the point of this:
Whenever a nation has indulged in buying back firearms from people or simply confiscating guns from law abiding citizens the crime rate has gone through the roof.
See France and Australia and all over the globe.
In the U.S. when studies have been done about gun-free zones, politicians have obeyed the hysteria…
IN THE LONG RUN CRIME HAS RISEN
IN MASS MURDER SITUATIONS – HAD SOMEONE HAD A WEAPON AND USED IT ON THE PERPETRATOR – THE DEATH TOLL COULD HAVE GONE DOWN EXPONENTIALLY
THAT IS TRUTH.
So to the question: Why are leftists, liberals and Democrats hysterical about guns?
They blame the world’s troubles on them when they do know better.
Because as with charges of racism — the real racism comes from the major Democrat figures (white and black) are the ones who talk about straight white males as if they’re Hitler’s SS.
The Democrats want confiscation because the dictatorship they seek in their heart of hearts is like in any of the last century’s totalitarian states. Gun elimination except in the hands of government meant the oppressed citizen had to obey or be condemned to death or Gulag.
That is the reason for efforts – on both sides. The question is what side do you want to be on?
