Guns don’t kill people; people kill people. I find it ironic that as our nation considers taking guns away from us, it misses the elephants in the room.
The largest acts of terrorism perpetrated against the U.S. were done with commercial airliners, but they don’t ban commercial air travel.
Great numbers of people are killed annually by cars, but almost anybody can get a license. Drunks kill hundreds of Americans yearly by all sorts of means, but they still sell alcohol to everyone of legal age. U.S. gun violence is greatest in Chicago (the president’s former home), but he did little to enhance Illinois’ criminal statues.
States with legal statutes that seriously punish individuals who use guns to commit crime, paired with liberal gun-carry laws, have less crime. Police have never had significant issues about people with concealed carry permits because it helps them know who can be suspected of being armed.
Instead of focusing on punishing criminals who use guns to commit violent acts, our lawmakers (many are lawyers with lobbying brethren who make serious money defending bad guys) are focused on the Second Amendment rights of innocent citizens.
Our Founding Fathers focused on freedom of speech as the nature of our First Amendment. How far our current leaders distance themselves from the realities of the world when they fail to realize the absolute importance of our Second Amendment.
Ask any Third World populace, and they will tell you there can never be any type of freedom of speech in a nation whose citizens lack the right to bear arms to protect their personal freedom of speech. Biblically, we are told there will always be wars and rumors of wars.
Sometimes the greatest wars start on the slippery slopes of the disarmed masses.
