Politicians are now using the tragedy in Newton CT. to take away your rights.
As we try to find answers for this tragedy, politicians see it as an opportunity to push their liberal agenda. This is a pathetic display of “never letting a tragedy go to waste.” (Obama Administration)
I have to admit I am struck by politicians who are jumping on the bandwagon without doing any research or fact checking on the “gun control” matter. The facts regarding gun control are very clear, and we have years of research and studies done on their effect on our society. No matter what anyone tries to tell you, the facts are clear. Gun control not only doesn’t work, but it has the opposite effect on society as the gun control advocates would want you to believe. The FBI, CDC and numerous other studies have found that “banning” guns or limiting the kind or type of weapons a person can own does nothing to curb bad people from killing good people. The sad fact is, when evil or disturbed people want to inflict harm on people, they will find a way. We have to remember, Timothy McVeigh used fertilizer to kill hundreds of people, and terrorists used box cutters to bring down the World Trade Center, killing thousands of innocent people. Senseless violence has been around since the beginning of time and will never be eradicated from our society.
We, as a society, need to understand and locate those individuals responsible and hold them accountable. Making laws that affect the masses does nothing to stop the real issues in our nation. Remember that in the history of the world, never has a gun pulled its own trigger.
The fact of the matter is, we as a society have not only allowed these tragedies to happen, we have listened to politicians tell us that by making laws that take away people’s rights, somehow they will make us safer. Not only do these laws not make us safer, they do just the opposite.
We advertise that areas have no protection with “gun free zones”! These are the areas where these crimes are committed. You never see any of these criminals going into a police station or gun show and opening fire. In fact, it’s just the opposite. “Evil” people prey on innocent victims who are not protected. Every mass shooting in recent years has been where unarmed people were and signs were posted telling everyone that they are “gun free zones”. In Aurora, Colorado, the shooter had seven different theaters to choose from. He chose the “gun free” one.
We have to, as a society, start thinking for ourselves. Politicians cannot legislate away “evil.” Chicago, for instance, has the strictest gun laws in the entire nation, yet 466 children have been killed there this year. The point is, it is your responsibility to make sure you are safe. It is your right to protect yourself by whatever means necessary.
There is absolutely no excuse for the senseless killing of innocent children – or anyone, for that matter.
As sad and emotional as these instances are when innocent lives are lost, we cannot rush to judgment or try to make others pay for a few bad people’s mistakes. We see celebrities and politicians making public service announcements telling us all we should lose our 2nd amendment rights, and at the same time have armed security around themselves 24 hours a day. Why should they be any safer than my family?
I can’t stand an administration lecturing me about gun control when they gave 1,400 weapons to killers and drug dealers in Mexico that cost a border agent his life in the “Fast and Furious” scandal. This is the same administration that tells us all that murdering 3,700 babies every single day in Planned Parenthood is okay, but wants to tell me I shouldn’t be able to protect my loved ones. I don’t think so!
The bottom line is that our second amendment has made it possible for us to be a free nation! Japan’s Admiral said in the 1940s that no one would ever invade America because there would be a gun behind every blade of grass. History tells us mass killings really start by disarming a nation’s population!!!
