Alright, so everyone has their views about guns, gun control (BS Laws), etc. Well, they get them out to the public somehow, so here is my own effort:
I have never seen a gun fly into a criminals hand on its own, then aim itself at an innocent person, and then take aim by itself, pull it’s own trigger, and shoot them, fatally or otherwise. Have you?
Don’t people study American History any more?
The Revolutionary war began being fought by militia-men, who brought their own guns, and who didn’t need permission from the government to own them. Yes they were single shot. But remember, except for gatlin’ guns, which a man couldn’t carry, these single shot rifles were state of the art at the time. As good as any “King’s Man” musket.
So it was people like you and me, who own “state of the art for OUR time” guns, who fought the war that freed our nation from the grip of Great Britain and King George.
People, guns are NOT the dang problem. The problem is irresponsibility in the homes of so many people who have children whom they choose not to raise in a befitting manner.
There’s two working parents (economical issue), and little Johnny or Jessica is left unsupervised, possibly able to play “on the street.” Well who in the heck do you think gangs and other criminals recruit. “Hey kid, you wanna make some money?” Of course there are human traffic people and a bunch of other demented people out there, but you get the idea.
Johnny, age 16, who has been “on the street” since childhood, sees his buddy driving a Caddy through the neighborhood, and he wants one too. So he goes to his buddy to find out how he got it. BOOM! Criminal made. Drugs, theft, robbery, etc. Yep, you can have a “Caddy” too Johnny. AND with the bonus of not having to actually work at a REAL friggin job to get it. Go American parents.
Blame it on guns when Johnny gets one from his gang-bangin’ friend, illegally by the way, and shoots a store clerk during a robbery.
NOW, let’s say I am in the store, legally armed, and stop Johnny with a round or two, but fatally wound him. I now have to go through the criminal and civil courts just to justify saving the clerk’s life, and I didn’t do a damn thing illegal. Go figure. Must be the guns. Doesn’t have anything at all to do with family values, morals, ethics, or even just simple logic. Nope, my gun jumped out of my holster, all by itself, into my hand, took perfect aim, fired, and killed Johnny, but GUNS are to blame? How bout Johnny’s parents who weren’t ever involved in raising him any more than hopefully making sure he had food and clothes, at best.
Who is the victim here? Johnny
Who/what is the culprit?? Guns? Johnny could have had a knife, and I could have been unarmed….then what? Who, really, is the culprit? Anyone ever consider the youth of our country are going to Hell on a train we are fueling with greed?
