Honest question to Think Progress readers and pro choice progressives,

Enter Zack Ford (above), an editor for the George Soros-funded Think Progress. Ford stirred up quite a storm with a tweet objecting to the fact that the woman defended herself with a firearm.

What does Ford have against vulnerable women in a dangerous city on their way to work? Why does he set about shaming this one for defending herself against and armed robber? This young lady simply did her best to make sure she could go home that night to the people who love and depend on her.

But for the radical lefty hack, self-defense was a shameful, selfish act on her part. Better she should surrender her valuables — and maybe her life — to a criminal than carry the tools with which to fight back and help secure her own safety.

Ford caught a lot of blowback for his short missive. So, Zack be nimble, Zack be quick. Zack posted another tweet.

The best argument I have heard for abortion rights is based on personal autonomy. Why does it not transfer to self defense? Why is it OK to kill a living human being, though not a legal person, for "choice" but does not extend to a legal person who poses a threat of immediate death or grave bodily injury.

How Gun Control Became An Instrument Of Tyranny In Venezuela

Is Venezuela paying the price for adopting gun control?

The shocking nature of Venezuela’s economic collapse has been covered ad nauseam. However, one aspect of the Venezuelan crisis that does not receive much coverage is the country’s gun control regime.

Fox News recently published an excellent article highlighting Venezuelan citizens’ regret over the gun control policies the Venezuelan government has implemented since 2012. Naturally, this regret is warranted. The Venezuelan government is among the most tyrannical in the world, with a proven track record of violating basic civil liberties such as free speech, debasing its national currency, confiscating private property, and creating economic controls that destroy the country’s productivity.

Elections have proven to be useless, as they’ve been mired with corruption and charges of government tampering. For many, taking up arms is the only option left for the country to shake off its tyrannical government. However, the Venezuelan government has done well to prevent an uprising by passing draconian gun control which will be detailed below.

Do echo chambers like DU and Conservative Cave

offer anything of value in terms of creating good policy or public discourse?

Civilian Gun Ownership Rates Rising Across Europe

Women wanting to defend themselves. The same trend we’ve seen in the US. Women are the largest growing segment of new gun owners, even in places like Iraq. Women who truly want to be independent have learned that that can’t rely on government for their protection.

In Germany, legal ownership has risen by 10% resulting in 6.1 million registered gun owners. In Belgium, applications for gun permits have doubled after ISIS attacks in Paris and later Brussels. France apparently has more guns in circulation than Afghanistan and Iraq combined.

In Italy, Matteo Salvini, the Interior Minster and Deputy Prime Minister has pledged to loosen the European boot’s tough gun laws. In 2014, there were 400,000 applications filed for gun permits. In 2018, that number rose to 600,000. Back in October, Mr. Salvini told the Italian public that, “Defense is always legitimate! From words to action.”

Lefty arguments are based on

emotion and superficial ideas because they lack righty's ability to think critically.

Change my mind.

Immoral And Ineffective

Hmmm. I have now, in a single day, heard two Congressional Democrats, in the course of discussing the so-called government shut down, describe the Trump border wall as “immoral and ineffective.” Does this mean that the phrase is an official, focus group tested Democratic talking point now, issued to the troops to be relentlessly repeated over and over again to end debates rather than illuminate them? I assume so, and thus it joins “comprehensive immigration reform,” “sensible gun laws,” and others. If I am right, it is a remarkably dishonest catch phrase. It’s also internally hypocritical.

Simply put, if the wall is ineffective, why is it immoral? And if the wall is immoral, why is being ineffective an indictment of it?
snip
Elected representatives, however, do not have clients. They are obligated to seek the best result for the American public and the nation. Their arguing in the alternative regarding border security signals that these Democrats actual loyalty is to illegal immigrants and their supporters in the U.S., and their objective is virtual open borders to the extent possible. Arguing in the alternative is no-integrity tell in policy debates. “Women have a right to choose, and fetuses aren’t human beings, but even if they are and abortion is murder, there’s no way to enforce a law against it” is a similar argument, and it signals a policy-maker who wants a politically expedient result than has nothing to do with effectiveness, morals or ethics.

How can elected officials call an effective border wall “immoral” without meaning that border enforcement itself is immoral, and that foreigners should have the right to enter the U.S. at will when they are “in pursuit of a better life for them and their family”? They can’t. How can the same officials object to a means of enforcement as “ineffective” when they don’t want effective enforcement? Easy question: they can do this because they are posturing, lack integrity, and can’t be trusted.
