I wish I believed gun control would offer at least a start to ending mass murders and school shootings and the like in America. I wish I believed that for the reason that gun control seems like a straight path to at least addressing the problem and starting to solve it. But I cannot understand how anyone can think guns are the problem when the trouble is so very clearly America has a huge problem with VIOLENT PEOPLE.
Guns don’t take on a mind of their own and suddenly stand up and start shooting people. Somebody picks the gun up and starts shooting and if they can’t get a gun they will build a bomb (remember Aurora Colorado?) or they will wait till the students are coming out of school and drive a vehicle into them or light a match to a gas pipe or whatever. Because violent people with an intent to murder will STILL BE violent people planning and scheming and many times amassing the means for months ahead of time to commit mass murder. HELLO…anybody listening?
So what is gun control?
Pie in the sky.
A false hope.
A false solution.
Much ado about nothing!
Go ahead Mr. President ban certain guns, ban magazines and clips with more than a few rounds, implement stricter registration, sure background checks are common sense—DUH! so do that too…and it won’t do anything of any real value to make America a safer place because we have not dealt with the real problem. But we will stop with that and think we have.
So after listening to the President I read an article with this bold title:
GOP congressman threatens impeachment if Obama uses executive action for gun control
“Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures with an executive order. Stockman warned that such executive orders would be “unconstitutional” and “infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.”……more here
Well that’s interesting but quite frankly Mr. Stockman I don’t believe you. Sorry, wish I did —but I’m jaded and Congress is ineffective and won’t do anything of the kind.
So what will gun control do?
Answer: Infringe upon the 2nd Amendment rights of Americans and no more. But then thats quite enough isn’t it?
