(I apologize for the lack of posts in the last few months. I finally had a chance to sit down and write last week and there has been a lot of new information out on the whole gun control issue. Obama threatening Executive Orders, etc. So again, I apologize for the lateness of this post, but I hope you enjoy.)
I have to admit, I’m a little pissed. Not only am I fuming about the recent developments in the attempts to control guns in america, but I’m appalled at how organizations, the nitwits known as celebrities, and news outlets are portraying and demonizing Americans. They are going all out in trying to punish and endanger people just for wanting to protect themselves and their families. I mean, I understand it’s the mainstream media, stupid is as stupid does, but it’s getting a little out of hand. Actually way out of hand.
Having a newspaper or any other news organization, or even a citizen, do something as reckless and endangering to society, as giving out addresses of people who own guns is just pure evil. This can only end one of two ways.
The first way it could end is bad, but in my opinion less likely. Criminals will target these individuals in an attempt to obtain more firepower to help them continue their crimes. Stealing guns from private citizens is an ideal way to obtain a weapon to use for any sort of illegal activity. They don’t have to pay anyone for them, they don’t have to get a license or fingerprinted. If a citizen wasn’t smart enough to have safeguards in place to prevent their guns from being stolen, such as a safe, you can be sure there would be ammo and accessories for a gun as well. Yes, this would be great for them indeed.
The only problem is, and the only possible silver lining for gun owners would be, this. If I was, let’s say a burglar, and I was trying to decide which house to break into. I now have a handy-dandy guide to which houses would be the safest. Let’s face it. Would you rather have a shoot out with the person you were robbing, or be the person with the gun in a gun vs. bat battle royale? The main concern gun owners would have to worry about is organized criminals looking specifically for weapons to steal.
The second option, and I fear the most likely, is the criminals and suicidal psychopaths going after those who are not armed. It is a fact that mass shootings only occur at places where people are unarmed. Yes, there are slight exceptions to this rule. Like people are allowed to conceal carry in most if not all malls. To my point though, to my knowledge there has never been a mass shooting at, let’s say, a gun club. These people know they will be able to take out as many people as they want before they turn the gun on themselves.
Gun violence is nowhere near as bad as the media makes it out to be, and they’re downright idiotic to think that taking away people’s gun, or even tightening control of them, will make anyone safer. I have seen statistics lying around all week. Like the fact murders involving guns are far lower than murder with hammers. I don’t hear a ban on hammers being called from Diane Feinstein. Gun control will only make things worse, and mass shootings will increase.
I know, I hear some of you liberal sissies out there saying “why do you need a 30 round clip in your AR-15? You only need five bullets max for hunting. True. While it’s true that I can kill Bambi with one shot, that’s not the reason I need the 30 round clip. Let’s think about this for a second. If I can only have a gun with five rounds per clip, what happens when an out of control government, comes after us with their high-capacity, fully automatic weapons. Oh, that’s right, we only have 5 rounds to protect ourselves. Looks like we’re screwed.
The fact of the matter is that if we lose one, any one, of our rights, given to us by God and our founding fathers, we will lose them all. If we were to lose the 2nd amendment completely, in mere months, maybe a year, we would lose all our rights. The right to worship who and wherever we want. The freedom to speak freely about anything and everything we want, especially an out of control government. Etc, etc, etc.
I just wish those in the MSM and our representatives would pull their heads out of the asses every once in a while to read the pulse of the nation and realize that just because they don’t like guns, doesn’t mean the world is going to hell. We could always take the guns away from the secret service and the bodyguards hired by celebrities and see how safe they feel then. The whole situation is actually not as bad as you guys make it out to be. Stop believing your lies and everything will be fine.
You could hate guns if you want, you could even hate me for having them, I could care less. Just remember this, you’ll be glad some day if someone saves your life due to the 2nd amendment.
