On 10/1/15 there was a mass shooting on a college campus, where according to reports there are 10 dead plus the shooter and 7 wounded. The investigation is ongoing as to the facts of the incident and the motive of the shooter. Nevertheless, the thin skinned, big eared, Community Agitator, Hussein Obama without knowing the facts, politicized the mass shooting calling for “gun control.” In his speech, Obama erroneously states, “We know that states with the most gun laws tend to have the fewest gun deaths.” Really? Tell that to the citizens of Chicago in the state of Illinois. We may not know the motive to the shooting, but, as in all of these incidents, we do know that the campus was/is a “gun free” zone, being guarded by one unarmed security guard.
Once again, the gun grabbers always come out when an EVIL doer commits an evil act and Hussein Obama did not disappoint. Their response is MORE restrictions on guns, which have an adverse effect on law abiding citizens. In ALL fifty states MURDER is against the law, yet EVIL doers who commit murder do not care about the law and the law does not prevent them from doing the act. Background checks do nothing to stop evil doers; they only restrict law abiding citizens and create a database for confiscation from the government. Let’s not forget that the school was a gun free zone, as was Fort Hood, where a Muslim jihadist massacred the soldiers there. There is evil in the World and no laws will stop an evil-doer from committing these kinds of acts. It takes an armed citizen willing to stand up to this person to end or at least minimize the damage and loss of life.
The Second Amendment states: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." There are many naïve people out there, Obama being one, who have not a clue about the US Constitution, and the people’s rights. You have a God-given right to be able to defend yourself and your family. The Second Amendment is not about hunting or tradition; it is about the people being able to defend themselves from an overreaching tyrannical government. And the Founders did envision the people being able to arm themselves with the weapons of today, because they had fought a revolution against a tyrannical government. Where would this country be today if the Founders were not armed to fight the British? Thomas Jefferson said, “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
The Statists’ goal is for total confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens; the assault weapons ban, registration and amount of rounds are the slippery slope. The registration lets the government knows which law-abiding citizens own guns and how many guns they own making it easier for confiscation. And one bullet can kill. So, if the government implements the ban and the killing continues the government would have a reason for banning more guns and limit the amount of rounds till eventually, the government would call for total confiscation. For those people who think that confiscation will not happen need only look to what occurred after Katrina where the government disarmed law-abiding citizens of their guns. There are people, who do not want to own a gun, then they should not get one, but they should not try to force their agenda on others.
