Wholesale Airsoft Guns Information Online

Are you thinking of starting a new business that is in line with your hobby? Yes, opening up a place for people to play airsoft is a cool idea, but there is a lot of thought that should be put into it, a lot of considerations that you need to think about ten times before pushing through with it. Naturally, your biggest concern would be where to get the airsoft guns. If you’re planning to rent out the equipment together with the location, then consider where to get wholesale airsoft guns.

Airsoft wholesale is actually getting bigger and bigger as more and more people are engaging in this different type of sport. But some people are choosy with the type of airsoft gun that they are going to use, and you must be able to cater to the different preferences of people, especially if you want to make sure that you’re going to built a community, and not only a business.

There are a number of airsoft wholesale outlets in the country today, and you could visit their stores or call them up first. But you could also just look them up online to save your time and effort. That way also, you could save the meeting up if you want to see the actual airsoft guns for inspection and purchase.

If you do a quick search and browse different sites today, you’ll find that there are a lot of different stores offering different kinds of deals for different types of guns. Aside from the models, you could also choose your airsoft guns from gas powered ones to electric powered ones. The convenience and usability of the guns will have to be determined by you and the type of environment you want to create for your business, but if you are not sure you could always consult with other people who already have that kind of business or the owners of airsoft wholesale guns about their past sales. This way you could also gauge which type of guns are preferred by more people.

A Solution to Gun Violence

A true solution to gun violence does NOT lie with regulating law-abiding citizens. It should be obvious – even to pea-brained politicians – that the causes of gun violence are criminals.

While it’s easy for the government to punish the innocent through legislation and feel as though they’re addressing the problem, increased legislation targeting law-abiding citizens will have absolutely no impact on crimes committed by criminals with guns.

“Why not?”, you may ask. It’s simple: criminals break the law so it’s impossible to enact a specific law that will stop criminals from perpetrating crimes. Laws that merely make it more difficult for someone to protect themselves or their families only work to benefit the criminal.

If I were a criminal, I know I’d target people who weren’t likely to, or couldn’t, fight back. It’s much safer for the criminal that way, and they don’t want to get hurt while committing crimes any more than the victim wants to get hurt during a crime. Doesn’t this make sense? So tell me: how does it make any sense to hand criminals MORE victims through legislation? It obviously doesn’t make sense, but it’s easier to feel as though you’re addressing the problem if you’re doing something – even if it’s the wrong thing.

There are two root causes of gun violence that need to be addressed, and are mainly ignored since addressing them is difficult. Those two issues are: 1. ILLEGAL guns, and 2. Criminals.

While screaming about “gun control,” it’s proponents seem to ignore a very real and true fact: that guns don’t, and have never, killed ANYONE. It’s the PERSON who does the killing. It’s the PERSON who made that choice and committed the act. The PERSON chose to put that gun in their hand and pull the trigger. The gun is simply an instrument.

And I can hear gun control proponents saying, “But guns make it easier to kill!” I freely admit that guns can make it more convenient to kill a larger number of victims. But truthfully, a criminal who wants to commit such an act will find a tool. Someone running around the mall with a samurai sword can kill just as many people before police arrive as can someone with a gun. Someone could drive a car through the mall and kill a bunch of people too. Or simply blow them up. There are many ways to accomplish such a thing, and it’s the person, not the instrument, who is responsible. We, as a society, need to remember that.

And let’s not forget that we accept other things into our lives that kill far more people than even illegal guns – legally prescribed medication, for example. On average, legally prescribed medicines kill over 100,000 people per year – second only to heart disease. But no one mentions that, and those deaths are accepted because medicines help millions of others. Well, not surprisingly, legally armed citizens, and the police, use guns to thwart or stop many thousands of crimes every year – crimes that could easily have ended in the victim’s death. Yet the media fails to mention that, too.

So what do we do about gun violence?

As previously mentioned, we need to focus on stopping illegal guns, and criminals who commit violent acts. Even though these are much harder than punishing the innocent, they’re the only things that will have a positive effect and help to reduce gun violence.

Stopping illegal guns is difficult, since there are varied sources for illegal guns. I suspect the main source of illegal guns used in most street crimes is theft from homes and businesses. If that’s true, then it may be wise to focus legislation on gun security, rather than gun control.

But even more important is to focus on criminals – the criminals who steal the guns, then use them to victimize the populace. The solution to this problem is more simple than it may seem on the surface. However, our legal system would need to be adapted to these solutions, and it may also be necessary to address housing a temporarily increased number of prisoners. However, by using these solutions, I firmly believe the number of criminals will ultimately decrease.

Here are the solutions I believe will help to drastically reduce violent crimes:

1) The punishment needs to EXCEED the crime. Prison could be a deterrent to crime if the price of getting caught – for even minor offenses – is much greater than the potential gain. I believe that any criminal convicted of any sort of assault should have a minimum 25 year sentence without parole. That may seem extreme, but that’s the only way to use incarceration as a deterrent.

2) No suspended sentences. If they do the crime, they do the time.

3) Have a nationalized death penalty for extreme cases.

4) Allow citizens to protect themselves and their families without fear of legal reprisal from criminals or their families. Someone who legally and correctly defends their life should NOT have to be subjected to any legal proceeding brought by the criminal or their family. If local law enforcement investigation finds the action justified, then the matter is dropped and everyone can happily accept that a criminal got what was due.

5) Consider implementing standards for gun storage in the home or business, to reduce the chances of criminals breaking in and acquiring guns.

6) Make a thorough background check necessary to purchase a gun. There’s no harm in having a permit system to purchase guns. This maintains the right to purchase, and may help weed out some people who have no business owning a firearm. It’s OK if this initial background check and getting the permit to purchase takes a little time. Chances are good that someone who wants a firearm in a hurry wants it for an illicit purpose.

7) Make tactical firearms training mandatory for anyone who wishes to carry a weapon. Make home defense training mandatory for anyone who wishes to have a firearm at home for defense. A system similar to getting a drivers license is reasonable. Get a permit to learn, take the training, then take a test to prove you can safely use the training. That may seem like an “infringement” of Second Amendment rights, but I believe it’s a necessary infringement since other people’s lives can be deeply affected by defensive actions a legally armed person may take. In addition, it’s foolish to have the gun without the training. It’s unsafe for everyone under those circumstances, and I find it reasonable to have some sort of minimum training standard that ensures proficiency and protects the safety of others.

Focusing on the things I’ve mentioned in this article can make a real difference in gun violence. More legislation to limit the actions of people who already follow the law is wasted time, energy, and money. Let’s spend our tax dollars wisely, and impress upon our sometimes misguided representatives the need to work on the real problems, rather than continuing to add more laws that only punish the innocent and have no affect on the guilty.

Just Say No To A National Gun Registry

I was having a discussion with a friend today who, although very liberal on most issues, is somewhat middle of the road when it comes to gun control. He is not against concealed carry, but does favor far more background checks – especially on sales from a private individual to private individual.

He is a bit surprised that I am against this. “Why?”, he asked.

First, let me preface my reasoning with a little information about me. I am not an anarchist. I am not a doomsday prepper. I do not believe we are due for a revolution, certainly not within my lifetime. I like having SOME government (don’t tell my anti-statist friends though). All of these beliefs being so, I must admit that I do fear for the generations that come after my death (I do hope to have at least another 40 years, which would get me into my 80s).

So back to my friend. Why do I disagree with him? Well, it is simple. Background checks on every sale, specifically private individual to private individual, would lead to a nationwide gun registry. I am very much against having one of these.

My friend countered, very proudly I might add, that we must register our cars. Why not our guns? This is simple. Nowhere in the constitution does it guarantee the right to keep and own cars. We all caved on the licensing of cars and drivers about a hundred years ago.

Our founding fathers specifically put verbiage in the constitution allowing us to keep and bear arms. There are different interpretations as to what they meant, but I believe at least part of their reasoning was so that we could protect ourselves from a tyrannical government or those who wish to do us harm.

Do I believe that our government is tyrannical? Well, not quite yet. We are still the most free nation on earth. I do not like to path our country is on, but I do not feel it is to late to right the ship.

Having a national gun registry would lead to forced gun buy-backs or even confiscation during some future crisis (either natural or man-made). Having our abilities to defend ourselves from criminals and/or government listed in a database would be sharing information that is way too personal.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Government is good at making us believe that being safer (their definition) is well worth giving up a few rights. Forcing people everywhere to register their private, constitutionally protected guns is a bad idea.

I can foresee that guns would even get tied to addresses where their owners no longer live. What if you moved into a home where the previous occupants had a number of guns registered and the police came looking for those folks? We all know that police, most of them being great people, do make mistakes when their adrenaline levels are too high. Would you want your home getting shot up because the previous residents had guns listed in the registry?

During a so-called “state of emergency” you can bet some local, state or national governments would make a move to take any weapons that did not reside in the hands of government personnel. It has already happened. See the video below.

I believe it is none of the government’s business if I own a gun (or guns). Yes, I have to do the same background check as anyone else when I buy a new gun. But do you think that having a national registry would keep guns out of the hands of people who could not pass a background check? Not a chance. I believe you would see a lot of gun owners reporting their guns stolen in order to sell their guns to whomever they desire – just as they can now.

When times get bad, whose doors are agents of the government (police or military ) going to be knocking down when they go on their gun collection binges? I’ll tell you – the door’s that are on the addresses contained in the gun registry.

While we do not currently have a government that kicks in doors and gives gas showers or firing squads to people they do not like, we do not know what our government will look like in 50 or 100 years. I want my children and grandchildren to be able to defend themselves from both a tyrannical government or a homicidal maniac (I suppose they could be one and the same though).

Starting a national gun registry is the first step to taking guns from people the government does not want possessing guns. Currently these people are felons and those with mental problems. Who might these future gunless people be? People of particular political parties? People of certain economic classes? People of certain religions? It has all happened throughout world history. We pretend to be the enlightened Americans but we have factions that want to take all our freedoms and give all the power to the government just like dictators of past and present we have all heard of.

How does this happen? We have to look at it from two avenues. First the gradual loss of gun rights for everybody through new “minor” restrictive gun laws. Second, the complete loss of gun rights for specific groups of people the government has targeted. Imagine a candle burning at both ends. As one end burns, more and more of the governments enemies are specifically forbidden to have guns. As the other end burns, more and more of the general population are getting the remainder of their gun rights taken away as well. When the flames meet in the middle we are left with no guns for anybody, and we have a government with nothing to fear. That is the nightmare of the slippery slope.

You think this has never happened?

1. In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated
2. In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
3. Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
4. China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated
5. Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
6. Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
7. Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

TOTALS: Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: about 56 million.

But that could never happen in the United States, you say. Well, it has. Just go back to what New Orleans police were doing during Hurricane Katrina. A national gun registry is an unwelcome intrusion into our personal defenses. Even if this database was not open to the public, millions of people that work in government would have access to it. Do you really think you could keep all those people from snooping on their neighbors?

I believe establishing a national gun registry is a major step on the slippery slope to the elimination of gun rights. You can guarantee that a required field on a background check for person to person gun transfers will include one for the gun’s serial number. Do not fall for the “this will make us all safer” nonsense. It will not. It is just another step on the road to the elimination of our gun rights.
