The Only Way to Stop a Gun is With a Gun


America now has its second worst mass shooting. And it, as usual, accompanied by calls for gun control. It’s no coincidence that we have had quite a few spree killings in such a short time. The lavish coverage of every shooting by the media encourages every shooter to think that he will be famous if he goes out and kills. And that is exactly what happens.

Our shooters are creatures of the media, not the NRA. A media that turns killers into celebrities and then warns that the only way to stop more shootings is by cracking down on firearms.

But no amount of media coverage ever stopped a man with a gun. It only encouraged him. It takes a gun to stop a man with a gun. That is the hard truth of human affairs. It is why we have a Second Amendment, it is why we have armies and police, and it is why people own guns.

There is no going back to a time before people owned guns. There is no going back to a time when violence did not exist. There is only the reality that killers stalk the streets and that we can either defend against them or take comfort in empty outrage.

Guns stop shootings. Not all the time and not every time, but they do. Gun control does not. Media coverage calling for gun control does not.

Gun crime was up 35 percent in the UK which has harsh gun control laws. And Europe has had plenty of its own school massacres.

“Figures showed the number of crimes involving handguns had more than doubled since the post-Dunblane massacre ban on the weapons, from 2,636 in 1997-1998 to 5,871.”

Thomas Hamilton killed 16 children in the Dunblane school massacre in 1996 using 4 handguns.

In Germany, in the Winnenden school shooting in 2009, Tim Kretschmer, killed 16 people, including 9 students. In the Erfurt massacre in 2002, Robert Steinhäuser killed 16 people with a handgun and a shotgun.

In Finland, in the Jokela school shooting of 2007, Pekka-Eric Auvinen killed 8 people.In the Kauhajoki school shooting, Matti Juhani Saari killed 10 people.

The media will pretend that this sort of thing only happens in America. It doesn’t only happen in America. It happens where killings do.

Gun control isn’t about putting an end to horrors, it’s about controlling people. And people who are used to being controlled have even less ability to cope with the uncontrolled and the uncontrollable.

Regulators think about the big picture. They don’t think about the individual. They think only about how to control people who follow rules. But shooters, by definition, do not follow rules. They are men who have stepped outside the system and care nothing for its rules. They want to kill, and they will find a way. And when they come, the only way to stop a gun is with a gun.

        No, but parents should be allowed to carry, so maybe yes if that's what you meant.

        "and cameras on every corner? "

        Stay on topic bozo. The argument is for guns, and against relying on government-only security and regulations.

        no, keep TSA the heck out of this. How about returning to the RIGHT named and guaranteed in the Second Ammdnement… all law abiding folks free to carry their own weapons whenever and wherever they go. I take mine into the bank, the car parts store, the Safeway, the concert hall, city parks, in my car, to the hardware store. to church……. why can’t I take that same weapon, being the same person with the same mindeet and intentions,, to school? If this were allowed (yes, repeal the federal Gun Free School Zones act in its entirety) no would be shoot-em-up creep would ever know how many armed defenders of the children he would meet before he even got to the front door. Yeah, didn’t that federal Gun Free School Zones law do a great job of keeping those guns, stolen from his Mother, from being taken into that school by Adam whats-his-name? Get real…. if a man will commit murder, do you think he’d suddenly stop and think “Oh, SNAP… I can’t bring the guns I just stole in here, it’s ILLEGAL!!!!”. Get real….

      Murderers, thy name is EVIL. And guns don't kill, people do. For if this were not true, then the millions of law abiding citizens, who execute their 2nd Amendment rights, would all be out committing murder!

      And it is also the case that those who are murderers, or garden variety criminals, will ALWAYS get their hands on guns. And the only people unable to protect themselves will be the law abiding citizens. In effect, not only will millions be rendered defenseless from wanton killers, but also from a totally controlling leadership!

      And that, dear posters, is the be all and end all of the hysteria emanating from the gun control socialists – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/19/shoring-up-ba

    A criminal kills children, we will see this as the lowest possible exercise by a human waste who
    should have been stopped but due to overlooked security horror visits a school. Time will help
    the parents heal as best they can but will never return thier murdered children, they will suffer
    the loss thier entire lives. Other places in the World Islamists are killing men, women and
    children daily, killing the entire population of Christian and Jewish peoples who are weak and
    unable to defend themselves. Here we will feel the pain of the murders but we should try to
    transpose these feelings to the broader arena of murder and mayhem and know that destroying
    the evil perpetrators is the only way to stop this evil and anything less if delusional idiocy.

    Greenfield seems to be advocating for the 2nd Amendment to stopper shooters. Greenfield, we ALREADY have the 2nd Amendment. How's it working out for you, bro?

    • Mary Sue

      What we have is idiots proclaiming schools to be "gun-free zones", and thus we have infringement of the 2nd amendment, in addition to localized (like in Chicago New York City and DC) gun control measures.

      There have been incidents where a shooter on a spree had no regard for any of these control laws, and in fact they could have been stopped sooner (like in Killeen Texas) when there were people there who had guns…but were required by law to leave said guns IN THEIR CAR.

    • RedWhiteAndJew

      What we have, scum, is a country where, save in blessed pockets here and there, exercise of the right to keep and bear arms is burdened with so many caveats and exceptions, that an individual going armed just displaces potential victimhood at the hands of entrepreneurial thugs, to being victim of professional government thugs.

      I carry a concealed firearm. If I ever allow any part of it to be visible, or even allow it to "print," such that its outline may be discerned by a casual passerby, I could be subject to arrest for "menacing." You will also notice, in the recent mass killing events that have transpired over the past several years, that the shooter tends to choose locations where carrying a handgun is prohibited.

  • Tan

    Excellent article Greenfield. Once again, you nailed it. This is what upsets me about the Left. Any tragedy that happens such as the Columbine Massacre, Virginia Tech Massacre, or the Tuscan Arizona shooting, the Left then goes in for the jackpot to politicize the issue and then changes the argument, distracting the American people. What the Left basically does is that they don't look at the internal issue of a tragedy (such as what is the main source of the problem such as a Islamists getting their beliefs from the Qur'an and why they act with savagery). Instead, they look at external things of the issue (such as certain objects like guns, knifes, clothing, etc). So because they look at external things as justification to change or remove laws in our Constitution, they think that it's okay to do that. Remember, most of the Left, as far as I'm aware, thinks that humanity is born good, so it gives them legitimacy to keep pushing their agenda on the American people. I guess every tragedy that we face is going to become a political war one way or another. This is just sad. This is exactly what happened on the second attack on 9/11 2012. The President blames the attack on a film. Again, on a external issue, not a internal issue. And just like the gun control laws, tragedies from radical Muslims is now going to determine our freedom of speech to criticize Islam. Either criticizing Islam will be illegalized or it won't. It's the same with our second amendment. All of these things are related because the Left tries to take away our freedoms by redefining the issue in a dishonest way. However, the Left can try to make the same argument against the Right when it comes to issues like the Benghazi scandal, Fast & Furious scandal, or Obama not wearing a American flag pin on his clothing. They might say, "You right-wingers are politicizing this nonsense with a bunch of lies." But keep in mind also that the Left has a double-standard when it comes to words that we are familiar with, because words like tolerance, equality, etc, actually means something totally different in contrary with conservatives. For example, people cried wolf when it came to the Watergate scandal and the Iran/Contra affair, but when it came to Obama giving money to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Hamas, where was the outcry from the Left? They demonized Bush for starting the Iraq War, but they never rebuked Obama for his involvement in the Libyan Civil War. Noticed anything? All that were criticized were conservatives, but not one Left-wing politician was. Bottom line: who gets to decided what's good and what's bad, what's acceptable and what's not acceptable? The Left has a different mind-set from that of conservatives, and people are just going to have to live with that fact.

    • Mary Sue

      What I don't get is why more people, when faced with a loaded gun and are pretty sure they're going to die, don't rush the shooter en masse and at least overwhelm him so that less people die and he gets disarmed and prevented from killing more.

      Now, I wouldn't expect this from terrified 5 year olds, but damn 8 adults died! They could have all ganged him and he wouldn't have been able to shoot them all at once if they came at him from different directions. It's not like he had an M-16 or AK-47 or anything.

      • Lucifer Dye

        Do you want to rush a guy with a loaded gun, Mary Sue? Go ahead, be my guest. Have you forgotten so soon that the 9/11 passengers never rushed people armed only with box-cutters. Sometimes I really worry about the state of your mental health.

        • RedWhiteAndJew

          Passengers of one plane on 9/11 did do exactly that, and I find it repugnant that you ignore and dismiss their sacrifice so casually.

        • Mary Sue

          If it would save just one life HELL YES I WOULD.

          One plane full did, it was the flight that crashed in the middle of nowhere instead of crashing into an actual important building. God knows how many lives those passengers saved by rushing the cockpit. They would have lost their own anyway and they KNEW that.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          "Go ahead, be my guest. Have you forgotten so soon that the 9/11 passengers never rushed people armed only with box-cutters."

          But after reflecting on the events, it's now common to rush people on planes who act like they might blow it up. Your example supported her case.

          "Sometimes I really worry about the state of your mental health."

          Nobody, and I mean nobody cares about your subjective opinions, in particular about anyone else's mental health. Worry about your own. Leftism leads to insane delusions.

    GIven the possibility that if you're careless in hiring teachers one or more of them might be a Jerry Sandusky, schools have to be careful in whom they hire as teachers. Now if a man or woman is trustworthy enough not to molest children like Jerry Sandusky did, then I think he or she is trustworthy enough to carry a handgun.

  • Mary Sue

    Obama's going to use this to try to drag in new gun control. If i were a conspiracy minded person, I would think this shooter was encouraged by someone on the Left to commit such an act (and hey, suicide evades prosecution!) for the purposes of more gun control legislation.

  • john spielman

    I have a different take on this type of horror which is becoming far too prevalent. It is because these evil doers have no fear of God nor of hell fire in which they will be cast on the day of judgment. We are also responsible because we have cast God out of our schools, business, and our every day lives so that the ability to restrain evil in our society is compromised. Jesus said of the end times " because of the increase in violence, the love of most will grow cold", and still we do nothing to change our societies morals back to God's morals.

      Sadly, the left will never make the connection between their relativistic moral code that denigrates the Judeo-Christian moral code and the increased violence in our society. As the apostasy continues, we are approaching that time the Lord spoke of when he said: “As the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Genesis 6 describes those days as follows. “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart only evil continually” and “the earth was filled with violence.” And at the same time people carried on is if the judgment of God would not come to them. They married; they built, etc. until the Day of Judgment overtook them. “None of the wicked will understand, but the wise shall understand.”

    In ALL countries where they passed more restrictive gun-laws the crime rates went UP after that. US States with the most restrictive gun-laws have the highest crime rates, so: what in the hell makes the libtards think that a gun-ban will stop such tragedies? It's just about un-arming the people, that's all!

    And: 1) IF someone wants to commit a crime, this person will find a way to get a gun. 2) If this person can't get a gun there are other possibilities: a knife (in China someone just killed 11 people with a knife) or this killer could have waited in the car until his mother and a bunch of kids would have left the building and then just hit the group and kill his mother and the kids.

    No one is commenting about the real solution. Reinstate mental institutions and keep anti society individuals separated from polite society. This all happened because the ACLU petitioned that the government needed to close all mental institutions and release anti social, mentally ill people into normal society.
    Until these individuals are locked up where they can't hurt anyone this will continue. Gun laws will not do it.
    Every one of the shooters in the past years has been a mental case, the parents couldn't wait to get them out of the house because they caused such havoc. Parent are unable together them committed, a 24-48 hour hold seems to be the standard amount of constrainment they get. Many parents are brainwashed about the child's condition and the lack of knowledge that teen into adult years brings more violence…..getting worse.

      I'm not sure if some one can be locked up for life in any institution for anti social behavior BEFORE he/she commits a crime. This man had no crimminal complaints against him.

    Connecticut just had their capital punishment abolished sometime ago. Now they're on their way to having their right to protect themselves reduced or abolished? Regarding the tragedy in Connecticut, I think this is only the start of the coming of the storm. I think the real firestorm is what the anti-gun Left is going to do next, along with the fate of the UN Arms Trade Treaty. Are they going to blame the NRA or conservatives for this tragedy? It wouldn't surprise me. My stepdad even told me that the anti-gun people might call the pro-2nd amendment people "baby killers" for going against any of the anti-gun laws that might be coming our way soon as a result of this tragedy in Connecticut. What's even more sad is that because of this tragedy in Connecticut, my guess is that those that were conservative before are on their way to changing their politics towards more the Left as a result of losing their children or being exposed to this tragedy in some way; therefore, it just adds more troops for the Left. If I had to make a prediction of what's going to happen to the relationship between the Left and the Right in the US, I would say that tensions will increase as a result of this recent tragedy and other recent tragedies in the US over the issue of having a firearm. It's sad that the Left's intolerance goes to such extremes, that we have to fight them, when in reality incidents don't necessarily mean that it had anything to do with external issues (such as objects like guns, clothing, etc). But in cases like these, it seems that the Left is not concerned about the real source of the problem because their biases are obviously with the external issues. If a tragedy happens and it involves guns, that's all they seem to care because it fits their biases to legitimize pushing anti-gun laws. Tragedies is one of the Left's greatest weapons in their fight against conservatives because they, therefore, have that justification since they can use tragedies as a hatchet against conservative values.

        No, I'm suggesting exactly what I wrote. That YOU (i.e. the right) see the typical liberal Democrat public school teacher as an indoctrinator of the young and much worse.

Because if you want everybody armed, that means your enemies get armed too.

        Latest news is suggesting perhaps the principal and others died attempting to rush the shooter. How's that for a wimpy liberal traitor public school teacher?

        • kentatwater

          This is what is called a straw man argument. It is often resorted to by those who need to make things up, so that they appear to have a leg to stand on in a debate.

          Up until you suggested such, it never once occured to me to impose a restriction on who may own or carry a gun, based upon an ideological test. Conservatives just don't think that way. Leftists do, and you are evidence of this assertion.

          Also part and parcel of leftist thinking, is pigeon-holing people into little ideological boxes. I don't assume a teacher or principle leans left, simply by virtue of their job. It may increase the likelihood, statistically speaking, but it's by no mean a certainty. Thinking this way is what motivates your fellow leftists to dismiss conservative blacks as "Uncle Toms," and motivates them to call "ethic" conservatives such a Michelle Malkin "Manila whores."

          "No, I'm suggesting exactly what I wrote. That YOU (i.e. the right) see the typical liberal Democrat public school teacher as an indoctrinator of the young and much worse."

          Correct.

          "If you are suggesting the answer to this is more guns then are you comfortable with encouraging people to be armed that you fundamentally don't respect and see as a threat to the country?"

          If we are consistent and support rule of law, then this is an acceptable consequence. The threat does not come from the guns. It originates in ideas. That is part of the point. We already suffer under leftists and arming everyone will not make it worse, as you seem to suggest.

          "Because if you want everybody armed, that means your enemies get armed too. "

          The point is that the violent enemies are already armed. Did you miss that point? The laws are not working. You can't go back in time and un-invent guns. They're here. Criminals are here. Let's get to a realistic solution.

          "Latest news is suggesting perhaps the principal and others died attempting to rush the shooter. How's that for a wimpy liberal traitor public school teacher?"

          That's called a counter-example if we're to believe your report.

  • http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org Ted R. Weiland

    The Second Amendment merely recognizes a "right." The Bible charges us with the responsibility (1 Timothy 5:8, etc.) to bear arms in defensed of ourselves, our families, and neighbors.

    “It is imperative we understand the authority to arm ourselves comes from Yahweh. Nearly all gun enthusiasts point to the Second Amendment as their authority for possessing firearms, which means their authority to keep and bear arms can be traced back to 1791. Where did the men living in America prior to 1791 get their authority to be armed? Do you suppose they might have gotten it from Exodus 22:2-3; Deuteronomy 22:23-24; Psalm 149:6-9; Luke 11:21, 12:39, 22:36; and 1 Timothy 5:8. Carrying a weapon was already lawful by Yahweh’s standards, so why, in 1791, did we need the authorization of the Second Amendment?

    "If your authority to keep and bear arms is derived from the Second Amendment – from the god WE THE PEOPLE – it is unlikely you will react any differently from the British and Australians who surrendered their weapons when required to do so by their respective governments. On the other hand, if your faith is in Yahweh’s sovereign authority, you will be far less likely to turn over your weapons to any civil government unauthorized by the omnipotent Supreme Ruler of the universe.”

        "Oh keep your religion out of this . That's all crackpots like you know how to do …co-opting bible verses ."

        Fine. What is your objective source for morality? Obviously you don't respect the US constitution either. Why not elaborate on your source? It is "The Force" and OB1?

    Pilots are now trained and authorized to carry. No hijackings since. Certify teachers to carry in the same program.

    There's no need for gun control .If anything, this horrible incident indicates the need for better SECURITY . I find it ironic that in my area where I live , the high end jewely stores all have foyers , where you ring a bell and the owner buzzes you in . You can't shoot your way in , because the transparent foyer is made out of Plexi-glass .Oddly enough a middle-school has had for atleast the last 15 years ONE front entrance door , then a foyer with a magnetic door which is opened from the Front desk just inside .A person can be seen and heard before access is granted .

    Thanks Daile Greenfield, Just yesterday you wrote a piece against gun control and whoops, on that very day, before the ink has dried, the mass murderer took your advice to hold guns. Great, Greenfield, thanks for supporting us,

      Just another example of how leftists can't wait to dance on childrens' broken bodies, if there's a political point to score.

      • The Leftists

        Political Point ?? Frontpagemag and its idol Glenn Beck are some of the main figures supporting the NRA. The religious right of America lables "politics" anything they can not respond to…
        and, what's wrong with politics if it can save the lives of another child ???

        • RedWhiteAndJew

          It was the banning of carry in the most recent mass shootings, including this one, which raised the body count.

          If you're so worried about saving the lives of children, leftists, stop trying to keep moral teaching out of public schools, and stop lobbying to keep legal the practice of tearing them apart or chemically burning them while they are still in the womb.

            If you want to save the lives of children, do not wash their brains with
            biblical nonsense about creations, for which you have not a single sceintific proof,
            and about the wombs – well, you are are a great protector of woman rights, and willing to force children to be born to families that will not want them or will have great trouble raising them and they will suffer all their lives… no matter what troubles for
            the mother, who has to raise those children, or for the children who have to live with those mothers. Just your fuc-ing God is important. Well, you know for sure that any inception
            is with the involvement of God. He must have a huge and very flexible pe-is…

            If you had the opportunity to ask the monsters who committed these atrocities, whether they cleaved to a faith which you so readily dismiss, I expect you would get blank stares or a laugh, followed by spittle in your face.

            You reap what you sow, in the form of generations each more amoral than the last, and you have the nerve to blame faith in G-d for that.

            You treat the unborn as garbage, and you recoil when the young treat their fellows in the same way.

            I've reproduced your post in its entirety, so that it remains as an example of how your kind choose to express themselves, so if you decide to delete it after you sober up, it will still be here for all to see.

    Very nice CZ75, BTW. One of the finest 9mm handguns made today.

    The only way to stop an idiot from writing to the wide public is to get him to
    write for Frontpagemag

    • RedWhiteAndJew

      Said the leftists who is part of the public, and reading Frontpagemag.

    There are plenty of ways to kill lots of people that don't involve firearms. I won't describe any of them, because I don't want to give any crazies any ideas. It's what's in your heart. If it is full of evil then evil will prevail. Violent video games play a signifigant part, I suspect. The lack of moral instruction plays a part. And you can add the drugging of school children and the absence of corporal discipline that makes it necessary. And let's not leave out Hollywood. The fact that these incidents get disproportional coverage in the news doesn't help either. But the gun? It's only a tool. When they restricted machine guns back in the 1930's, did that stop gangland snuff outs like the St. Valentine's day massacre? No, it only changed the way they are done. The Obama administration just put thousands of assault weapons in the hands of drug criminals. Now he wants to take guns away from us? I don't think so.

  • Cranky Yankee

    Have you noticed that the mass shooters go for UNARMED victims in GUN-FREE locations? As legal concealed carry goes up, murder rates go down. Thank God for the 2nd Amendment, recognizing our God-given right to self-defense.
