Guns Are Not the Problem, People Are

By Sam Aydlette

“‘Emergencies’ have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.” ~F.A. Hayek

In the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings, there has been a flurry of calls for gun control.  Senator Diane Feinstein has called for national gun control legislation, which is supported by President Obama.  Bob Costas and Piers Morgan have made condescending remarks on TV towards those who do not support gun control.  Numerous articles with titles like, “Rahm Emanuel presses for gun control moves while public is at tipping point” and, “Sandy Hook exposes the logic gap in opposition to gun control” attempt to paint the picture that after the tragedy, things are different.  However, gun control is not and will never be the answer to ending violence.  Using the tragedy at sandy hook as a catalyst for more Government control over our lives and actions will only compound violence in our society.

It is important to consider that Connecticut already has some of the toughest gun laws on the books of any state.  There is already an assault weapons ban enacted there, and obviously it did not stop Adam Lanza from obtaining weapons.  To illustrate the point, consider that cocaine is 74% cheaper today than it was 30 years ago, despite the $20-25 billion dollars per year the Government has spent trying to stop its entry into the country.  Making something illegal does not stop it from getting into the hands of those who desire it.

Beyond the statistics lies a broader truth.  Gun control is antithetical to the trust toward our fellow man required of us in a free society.  Denying access to weapons is to deny the duality of human nature.  The truth is that Adam Lanza was as human as the rest of us.  Yet he is not a reflection of humanity itself.  Every day, we make choices that expose us to extreme danger.  Acts like merging onto the highway, standing next to a forklift operator, even turning on a light switch or stepping onto an elevator require a high level of trust in the benevolence of an unknown stranger; our lives literally depend on them doing the right thing.  On the other hand, none of us are completely innocent of being inconsiderate of others while attempting to meet our own needs.  Taken to a disturbing extreme, this is exactly what Adam Lanza did.

Instead of looking to end violence by enacting laws which may create the illusion of safety but in reality will merely strip away the rights of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves, we should instead look within.  Are we being compassionate towards those around us?  Are we treating each other with respect and dignity?  Are we taking action against injustice in effective ways?  Let’s take this tragedy as a reminder to be a force for good.  If enough people did, it would prevent violence a thousand times more than any laws ever could.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
