    EXCELLENT! Yes all your facts are correct and so applicable to today! Keep it up, I have seen some of your other publications and you are on the top of the list!

  • Bob Marshall

    Seems that Bill Whittle forgets that the reason Saddam was able to kill his people was because he was armed by our government to in order to attack Iran in the Iraqi-Iranian war.

    • Phil Bronner

      Your argument just reinforces the fact that gubmints, including our own, cannot be trusted.

    • Sol_of_Texas

      Would a reasonable person compound a mistake by justifying it with another mistake?

    • Moose

      I think you will find that Saddam’s army was using Soviet weapons not American weapons.

      • BigUgly666

        I think, if YOU look into it – they were Soviet weapons supplied by the US government.

    • Dana King

      That may have been accurate in the past but when we invaded Iraq after sadumb insane invaded Kuwait the sidearms they had were soviet. I know this because I was in the Marines during that timeframe. It seems to me you wish to throw up a strawman to distract from the subject at hand. Keep to what you know, Bob, and maybe you wont look as stupid.

        I also seem to remember Sadaam rattling his WMD sabre either at the UN or in his palace bragging he had them,etc.

    • panors77

      Was this before or after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait?? So the soviet AK’s came from OUR government? What about the knives used for beheading executions in the soccer stadium on a weekly basis?

  • Sol_of_Texas

    I don’t always agree with Mr. Whittle, but I sure do on this issue. The “contract” will be broken if the 2nd Amendment is any further violated.

    I disagree with the (reductionist) point that receiving government benefits (like HUD, SSI or food-stamps) makes a person a slave. While this can be true in some cases, it’s not true in America, at least not yet. And granted such persons aren’t very popular with the majority of gun owners, owning a gun per so doesn’t make you free. Having a job doesn’t make you free either (you are dependent upon your boss who is like your king or lesser god), especially in this down economy when so many jobs have been off-shored and outsourced. If you are self-employed then you depend upon your customers and even parasicize them in some sense. Freedom is a complicated nut, not separate from economics. It’s also relative, when you consider that a sovereign person is being assailed from time to time by persons trying to take his goods or freedom away. He is free to defend his freedom but that becomes his “job” as others importune upon him. How free is that?

  • US taxpayer

    he refers to 11,000 killed however, that number includes criminals who were killed by the police, gang on gang killings, and suicide so the number of innocent people killed by guns is extremely low — that is why I always attempt to make sure that people realize the difference between statics which the government uses and the real numbers – gun control / confiscation has only one objective that is people control

    We did already learn about the second Amendment by Danny Glover he says the second Amendment was to keep the slaves in line so Hollywood shows more of there ignorance and these people do not know what any of the Amendments stand for. They believe that they are the smart ones because they get rich from being Pretenders and they Pretend to know something about the Constitution also and so many that are Black call us Racist but they are the first ones to call anyone not Black a Racist. That is why the Racism problem will never go away because these people will not let go of Racism and they continue to feed from what they pretend is still going on.

    He makes a mistake. Hitler never took a way the guns from the German people. In fact, he gave the guns back to the German people. It was the Jewish Weimar Republic that took the guns a way from the German people.The Jews controlled Germany at that time before Hitler, and they established Brothels, pornography, and other vices. When Hitler came to power he gave the guns back to the Germany people and did a way with the vices that was established by the Jewish government. This is one of the main reasons that the Jews declared war on Hitler and the German people.

    Bill your preaching to the choir here.Now if you could put this out on lame stream media maybe just maybe it would sink in to the libtards mind and I use that term loosely.

  • TAM44

    There are over eighty million gun owners in America this statistics courtesy of FBI
    The number of accidental deaths per gun owners is .0000188

    The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000
    Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year are 120,000.
    Accidental deaths per physicians is 0.171
    Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services

    So statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
