Twenty-year-old Yakiri was incarcerated in December for killing Miguel Angel Hernandez Anaya, who she says – along with his brother Luis Omar – kidnapped her, took her to a hotel, then stabbed and raped her. In a moment of struggle, Yakiri turned the knife on Hernandez Anaya, cutting his throat. He died later that same day. When Rubio went to the police to report the rape, she was charged with murder and held without bail. Those charges were reduced this week.
“But Miguel, damn it! She did not use a gun! Why do you call it Gun Control?”
Because if you have not figured out by now that Gun Controls is not about guns but about control, you need to wake the hell up and in a hurry. To have compliant subjects, they need them at the mercy of two elements: The State and the Criminals.
If a Government cannot control the possession of firearms, it makes its use, even something as basic as using them for self-defense, a crime. The result is that you will be so concerned with the aftermath of an attack that you rather take your chances with the criminal than the State. And when you demand that the State step up and do what they are supposed to do which is to ensure your safety, they will respond in the affirmative in exchange for a bit more of you dwindling freedoms.
Ms. Yakiri will in all probability be set free, but the lesson has already been taught and absorbed by the rest of the population: We Are The Government and We Have The Monopoly On Defense and Violence. You shut up and hope the rapist uses a condom or is disease-free and lets you live.
The tool is not the important part, it is the self-reliance mindset that needs to be brought under control. And that is why the Second Amendment is so thoroughly hated.
