Dark Knight Shooting: More Evidence The Government Can't Protect You

Chris | InformationLiberation

Libertarians are frequently demonized and accused of supporting a state of lawlessness where everyone must "fend for themselves."

In fact, it's statism which creates a situation of lawlessness and "anarchy," in the negative sense of the word, because rather than people have full knowledge they must fend for themselves, they think the government will protect them. A task which, like keeping health insurance prices low, keeping drugs and weapons out of prisons, "managing" the economy, etc., the government fails at miserably. I believe such a failure was on display with today's Dark Knight shooting.

Just a few days ago there was a widely covered story when a 71-year-old man shot some robbers who entered an internet cafe armed with guns:

Fortunately, the older gentleman had a gun and was able to defend himself and everyone else from the armed robbers. One 71-year-old man did what the government could not. Imagine if such a situation occurred today at this Dark Knight shooting! If only one person had a gun the chances that Colorado shooter James Holmes would have been killed and more people would have survived would have been exponentially greater. The more people who had weapons, the easier it would have been to kill him.

Was no one armed? Are guns even allowed in the theatre? I'm not familiar with Colorado's gun laws, but any laws restricting what people are "permitted" to own by their rulers in the government are too many. Even if they had no restrictions on gun ownership (they do), the implicit false sense of protection the government gives people leaves people more exposed to danger because they assume "the government will protect them" and they do not have to "fend for themselves."

Of course, there was no police there to protect the people above in the internet cafe, nor was there any police to protect those during the Dark Knight shooting. As anyone who follows this site knows, the police generally act as revenue collection agencies for the state, violating people's rights just like armed robbers, rather than act to protect people from criminals, they act to protect the criminal state from the people.

The "government," or the people who call themselves "the government," are more likely to violate your rights than any random criminal, yet for the most part it's entirely illegal to defend yourself against government robbery and any state sanctioned "use of force."

To depend on these people for "protection" is foolish to the extreme, those who believe such nonsense put us all in danger.

193200 more non thinking from you chris - you should stick to reporting the news and leave the commentary to others, as its obvious youre no good at it.

if you think giving everyone a gun is the answer to gun violence, well.. i doubt theres even a word to describe such stupidity.

somalia has no gun laws, no taxes and no government. sounds like heaven eh? - dont let the door hit you on the ass on the way out :p

6919 Compare the facial expression of the "Batman Shooter" taken after his arrest, with the facial expression of the "Tucson Shooter" who nearly killed a Congresswoman. they appear remarkably similar - a strange wide-open, but glazed look to the eyes, a satisfied smirk, etc.

One might conclude that both were given the same drugs, whatever those could be, in a form of mind control more commonly associated with an intelligence agency, some of which happen to have university programs for recruiting students.

And even more strange is that Congress has the U.N. Small Arms Control Treaty under consideration and before this shooting, they lacked several votes for it to be enacted into law.

Operation "Fast and Furious" may have been the original false-flag operation to convince Congress to enact the U.N. gun confiscation treaty, but it failed, so perhaps this mass shooting is "Plan B" from the intel community.

24112 This staged event/drill was a fraud/hoax. Watch the interviews, look at the photos, use your common sense. The same people and photos over and over again.

70170 Umm he was wearing a full bulletproof set up so had someone had a gun and was able to use it, the chances of it being that helpful in a tear gassed room are slim to none.

193200 @ Anon6919 Compare the facial expression of the "Batman Shooter" taken after his arrest,
