The Real Reasons Why California Leftists Are Terrified Of The AR-15
by Brandon Smith

"All political power comes from the barrel of a gun.
The communist party must command all the guns, that
way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.
-- Mao Zedong"

"ALL totalitarian governments seek to first disarm the people they
intend to enslave or destroy. This is a fact."

This past week a US District judge in California struck down the
state’s 30 year ban on high capacity semi-automatic rifles which
leftists label “assault weapons”. The judge called the ban
unconstitutional (which it is). In response, the progressive media has
lost their collective minds, screeching in horror at the idea of AR-15
rifles being legal within the borders of their carefully manicured
socialist Utopia state. Their most commonly expressed reaction seems
to be fear.

Fear is rarely a rational thing. When someone operates based on fear
they tend to make terrible decisions and support oppressive causes and
laws. Fear leads to an obsession with control. Fearful people also
tend to look for large mobs of other terrified people so they can feel
safe and secure and anonymous. They want to be able to act impulsively
on their fears without having to face consequences for it later.

Leftists are driven primarily by two factors: Narcissism, and yes,
fear. I’ve discussed their narcissism at great length in past
articles; now I think we should delve into their fear.

The most common leftist retort to the question “Why are you so afraid
of the AR-15?” will usually be a snort of indignant disbelief followed
by the words:

    “Because it’s a military weapon designed to kill a lot of people

But this is not an argument, it is an expression of irrational fear.
Why are they, as individuals, afraid of the AR-15? What are the
chances that they will EVER be faced with a person intent on killing
them with an AR-15? And, why do they believe that disarming innocent
law abiding Americans will somehow save them from their paranoia?

Let’s examine the first issue of statistical probability; how many
people are actually killed by AR-15s each year? Not many according to
the FBI, which does not track the stats on specific rifles, but does
track the stats on all rifles together. And, as it turns out, only
around 6% of all gun deaths involve rifles in the US each year.

How much of that 6% involves the use of military grade rifles like the
AR-15? It’s impossible to say, but even if it was half, or 3% of all
gun related crimes, that would still mean you have FAR more of a
chance of being murdered by a knife or blunt object than an AR. By
extension, Rifles overall are dwarfed by handgun murders, so, again,
why are leftists so afraid of the AR-15?

What about mass shootings? It seems like the AR-15 is a favorite among
mass shooters because of it’s “efficiency”, so is this reason enough
to be fearful? According to the New York Times own analysis, the AR-15
was used to kill 173 people in mass shootings in the US from 2007 to
2017. Meaning around 17 homicides per year over a decade can be
attributed to the rifle. Again, the AR is dwarfed by almost all other
weapons in homicide including knives, even when accounting for mass

With the sheer number of military grade weapons in the hands of
civilians in the US there should be mass homicides everywhere you look
if you take the common position of the typical progressive gun
grabber. But, this is not the case. In fact, if you want to increase
your chances of being killed by a gun, move to a major Democrat run
city like Chicago, New York or Philadelphia. In Chicago, there were
4033 shootings and 784 homicides, predominantly in black neighborhoods
and primarily with handguns.

So, statistically, access to AR-15s does not increase gun homicides.
But what about living in a black neighborhood in leftist run Chicago
under some of the strictest gun laws in the country? Yes, your chances
of being shot are MUCH higher (just not by an AR-15).

Since the math does not add up in favor of the leftists, perhaps we
should examine other factors that might be driving them to focus on
the AR in particular. Let’s talk about “precedence”…

Look at it this way – States like California are a petri dish, a
testing ground for the future that leftists want for the entire
country. There is an old saying that “As goes California, so goes the
US”, and this is because California is often where most experimental
legislation is pushed; legislation that violates the boundaries of
what the constitution allows. Sometimes it’s New York or New Jersey or
some other blue state, but most of the time CA is where
unconstitutional precedents are set. Its massive population and large
number of electoral votes make it a perfect target for conditioning
the wider public to further restrictions on their freedoms.

This explains some of the fear the media is showing regarding the
latest federal court decision on military grade weapons like the AR.
Political elites see California as their own little kingdom with their
own special laws, and they plan to eventually spread those laws across
America using California as the model. But, if such laws are
overturned as unconstitutional, then the precedent actually works in
reverse. Now, the leftists are concerned that an overturned gun ban in
CA means more blue states will follow and their entire gun grabbing
scheme will go out the window.

The leftist mind thinks in terms of unchecked and unhinged
“democracy”. Meaning, they believe that the majority is paramount; the
majority is law. If a majority in a society wants to take away your
freedoms, then they have the right to because they have the mob on
their side. 51% rules over the lives of the other 49%. But this is not
how things work in a Constitutional Republic.

Under the Bill of Rights your freedoms are codified and sacrosanct.
They are inherent and gifted by God (or whatever you happen to believe
in); government has no domain over these rights. The right to firearms
and self defense is one of these inherent qualities. It does not
matter what the State of California thinks, or even what the
“majority” of people in California think. If an American in California
wants to own an AR-15, then he/she has the right to own an AR-15.

We also cannot ignore the fact that leftists have an insatiable
appetite for collectivism, usually in the name of the “greater good”.
Collectivism is basically totalitarianism disguised as
humanitarianism. They know what’s best for you, and they are going to
make sure you follow THEIR plan for your life.

The AR-15 is indeed a weapon in military use, and maybe this is what
frightens leftists the most. Not because they are personally more
likely to be shot by one (we’ve already proven that notion false), but
because leftists desire control over all else, and with military grade
weapons in the hands of the public control becomes much more
difficult. ALL totalitarian governments seek to first disarm the
people they intend to enslave or destroy. This is a fact.

When a group of people in power are working hard to remove defensive
or even offensive weapons from your hands, it’s best to assume that
their intentions are malevolent. They are not trying to help you, they
are trying to help themselves.

They will deny this motive to the grave, but look at how the political
left has been acting lately: They are the only people that have
supported mass censorship of opposing viewpoints. They are the only
people that are supported by international conglomerates and Big Tech
companies. They are the only people that supported the pandemic
lockdowns, which were completely useless in stopping the spread of
covid, but they were very useful in killing hundreds of thousands of
small businesses across the US. They are also the only people in favor
of vaccine passports which would destroy the very fabric of our
society and erase what is left of our freedoms.

It’s not really surprising that they want to disarm us as well.

Of course, they will claim that this argument is “silly”. After all,
what can an AR-15 do against an Apache helicopter or a Abrams battle
tank? Well, these rifles in the right hands can do a hell of a lot to
stop a technologically advanced military, as we have seen for the past
two decades in Afghanistan. Let us not play games; there is a reason
why leftists and elites are obsessed with our disarmament. If military
grade rifles were not a threat to them, then they would not be going
after them so aggressively.

Finally, the mainstream media has rolled out all the typical
propaganda tools when it comes to spinning the federal decision in CA,
including attacking the judge and his character. Almost every single
article on this issue focuses on the fact that the judge compared the
AR-15 to a “Swiss Army knife”.

The left will continue to use this narrative as a means to distract
from the real problem at hand because false conflations and straw man
arguments have worked for them in the past. Clearly, the judge was not
trying to say that an AR-15 and a Swiss Army knife are exactly the
same, or that they are equally capable of killing people. The logical
interpretation is that the AR-15 is a tool like any other tool, and it
has multiple uses. It is a utilitarian object, not an inherently
demonic death machine as leftists would have us believe.

Gun grabbers love to make the argument that firearms are only designed
for one purpose: “Killing”. This is a lie. They are also tools for
self defense. They are a means to defuse a violent situation before it
even happens. There are thousands of videos on the web showing people
with criminal intent running away from a Good Samaritan with a gun.
There is no way of telling how many potential victims have been saved
by the mere presence of a firearm, but the accounts are documented and

This is on top of all the other uses for guns, including hunting and
sporting uses. So, yes, the judge is absolutely correct; an AR-15 is a
multipurpose tool, just like a Swiss Army knife.

In my view, the gun control lobby in America is in the midst of a
considerable decline, and maybe it is even about to die. The political
left has long operated on the mantra that “the squeaky wheel gets the
oil”. In other words, they think if they whine long enough and loud
enough about an issue someone will come along and give them what they
want just to shut them up, even if what they want is illogical or
morally bankrupt.

This strategy has worked out for them for many decades so it’s not
surprising that they keep using it, but times are changing. Now, the
squeaky wheel gets no oil, at least not from gun owners. The squeaky
wheel gets nothing.

Gun control is the big line in the sand for most law abiding
conservatives and moderates, and we have grown tired of the debate
because it’s no longer a debate, it’s a imposition of ideology and
cultism. All the facts are on the side of gun owners. All the legal
protections are on the side of gun owners. All the moral dynamics are
on the side of gun owners. As long as we stand our ground, there is
nothing that leftists can do about it.

They can continue to lie, they can continue to threaten and they can
continue exploiting emotional arguments, but they’ll NEVER get the
guns. And, as we have seen recently, we might even start returning
some of those gun rights and rifles to states like California, where
fear was used to cloud the public mind and people were conned into

What are California leftists and their comrades in other blue states
really afraid of? They are afraid that their strategies are failing,
that the public is getting wise to their games, that their
incrementalism only works for so long, that their true intentions have
become transparent, that their narcissism has blinded them to their
own frailties, that the law is not their plaything and that every
piece of constitutional ground they have stolen over the decades could
be taken back from them in the blink of an eye; as fast as a speeding

Leftists and totalitarians fear the AR-15, but what they fear more is
what it represents. And with each carefully placed practice shot at
every gun range across America, they hear the crushing sound of

The real reason is that those who wish to control,
subjugate, enslave, steal from, and even kill you...
are deathly afraid that you will fight back.

Fight back.
