So you’re going hunting and you want to cut Bambi in half? You decide that you need to protect yourself from an army of the walking dead? You think it’s fun to spray a zillion bullets a second at whatever, whenever, and however you please? Please!
I believe in the right to bare arms. I wish it was possible to arm bears as well.
The USA 2nd amendment is a sacred cow that permits a violent society to arm, protect, hunt, and collect weaponry. OK. It was enacted back in the day when one could blast off a bullet every 2 minutes if they were amazingly coordinated.
Now we have hit “50” literally. 50 people (and probably growing) have been slaughtered by one guy with a military device designed precisely for that purpose. The manufacturers must be pleased that their product has performed with such efficiency and effect. Sales will undoubtedly soar and more atrocities will unfold. Bodies piled up. Profits made. Case closed.
The majority of Americans want common sense gun control. Like Drivers Ed, car seats, drinking age, and a host of rational regulations, societal ability to “clock the gloc” is pretty straight forward. That is, until greed, profit, and untethered violence rear their ugly head.
No one wants you damn gun. Everyone wants military assault weapons off the market and illegal to own or sell. Get it, Rambo?
Blubbering and blaming the GOP or the NRA is not the answer. GOP should not stand for “Guns Over People”. The few in that party who reject this must either stand up to their leadership or be voted out by an exasperated majority who hopefully realizes that action “trumps” apathy. NRA members must depose their “Never Resist Armament” lords in favor of reasonable regulation that cascades over the US as much as the blood does.
Owning, buying, trading, collecting, and prancing around with assault weapons must be illegal. No exceptions! OK, well, maybe if you have a machine gun that has been welded so no magazine can be loaded. You know, like those canons in the park that have pigeon poo for ammo.
Pundits and peaceniks whined about weapons of mass destruction not too long ago. Yet, WMD business is booming while “Women, Men, and Dead Kids” push up daisies just because they went to a school, club, community center, health facility, or store.
So don’t look for an ISIS, Islamaphobe, or gay-bashing goat. If you have one of these killing devices, support people having these devices, or think in your bass-akwards mind that this is in anyway a good idea, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. If you don’t elect public servants to finally enact the will of the people, YOU ARE CULPABLE AS WELL.
POTUS ain’t coming for your guns. I am. I will knock on your door and demand your Uzi. Take your best shot. It only takes one bullet. But you can fire dozens in seconds so my doom is sealed. Gladly.
Always wanted to be a piece of swiss cheese.
