Re: Orlando Shootings

The answer is simple... Those who do not believe they will be directly affected have no issues with taking the liberties of others so that they themselves may feel more secure. If you are not directly affected by a ban on, say, personal helicopters and you hear about people getting killed by helicopter crashes, you'd be easily influenced to go along with strict regulation and banning of non-government owned helicopters.

Now replace "Helicopter" with most any other item. If you are told they kill people and that only the government should have them, you go along with restrictions or bans so long as they do not impact you personally.

Evil people have understood this for a very long time. It IS how mass murderers come to power. One of the least stable did so after being put in charge of the agenda's for party meetings.
