VIDEO: Ronald Reagan Drops Truth-Bomb On Gun Control

Every time there is a tragic shooting, assuming of course the victims and perpetrator fit the pre-set liberal media narrative, we are inundated with cries for more gun control from Democrat politicians.

They will inevitably scream for universal background checks, despite the fact that most of the recent high profile shooters passed their background checks and purchased their weapons legally.

They will also demand more “gun-free zones“, even though it has been proven that mere signs prohibiting weapons do nothing to prevent criminals from gunning down innocent people rendered unable to defend themselves by those very signs.

In all of the wailing and gnashing of teeth regarding stricter gun control, Democrats rarely if ever focus on the actual perpetrators of the dreaded “gun violence,” the actual criminal pulling the trigger.

However, there is in fact one “common-sense solution” (I hate how progressives have ruined that phrase) that would drastically reduce gun crime, which is simply to lock up criminals that use guns for a long, long time.

This actually isn’t a new idea, as President Ronald Reagan spoke precisely about this more than 32 years ago.

“There is only one way to get real gun control,” Reagan said. “Disarm the thugs and the criminals, lock them up, and if you don’t actually throw away the key, at least lose it for a long time.”

(If you’re feeling a little nostalgic right now, we can’t blame you. You can actually watch Reagan say the words himself at the Reagan Foundation‘s website, if you’d like.)

This right here is the kind of “sensible” gun control that takes on the actual criminals, removing them from our streets and preventing them from committing further crimes without infringing upon the natural right to keep and bear arms enjoyed by all good people.
