Did you ever wonder why the media is so intent upon pushing the gun control agenda of this administration even to the extent of ignoring all evidence of other causes of violent behavior?
Did you ever wonder what will be the reaction of the 50 millions gun owners in this country when this administration directly attacks the Second Amendment?
Did you ever wonder why President Obama thinks he can just dismiss the Second Amendment by writing an Executive Order? Does he really think he was elected dictator instead of President?
Did you ever wonder why the rush to ban guns for everybody, when the crimes are committed by criminals, nor law abiding gun owners? A half a hundred people commit crimes with guns and the gun control advocates want to punish 50 million innocent people for it.
Did you ever wonder how the gun control advocates plan to deal with the fact that those bent on committing crimes with guns will not pay one bit of attention to their silly gun ban laws?
Did you ever wonder if the gun control advocates realize that if we give up our guns, we will be defenseless against a growing number of armed criminals, thugs and hoodlums?
Did you ever wonder if a .38 in the hand is more effective than a cop on the phone, in stopping someone intent on doing you harm?
Did you ever wonder why the mainstream media never reported on the 14 Mexican teens reportedly gunned down at a birthday party, some with weapons given the killers by President Obama’s ill conceived Fast and Furious Program?
Did you ever wonder why President Obama is giving guns to the Mexican drug cartels, planes to Egypt and arms to Libya, but wants to disarm American citizens?
Did you ever wonder why an armed person is called a citizen and an unarmed person is called a subject? Give up your weapons and you won’t have to wonder why any more.
Did you ever wonder why, if just passing a law is going to get guns off the street, we don’t apply the same logic to alcohol, drugs, and illegal aliens? Oh, yeah, we did that with alcohol. It was called prohibition and gave birth to modern organized crime syndicates. We have law against drugs, but the streets are full of them and drug addiction is at an epidemic stage. We have .laws against illegal aliens, but we have about 15 millions of them in this country right now.
Did you ever wonder why the gun control advocates are loath to refer to the Columbine shootings in their mad rush to ban “assault weapons?” The Columbine shootings were carried out with three handguns and two shotguns, but only one rifle, not by responsible gun owners, but by a couple of psychotic students, who planted improvised explosive devices in the cafeteria, which, if they had exploded would have killed virtually everyone in the cafeteria. They also planted explosive devices in their own cars, timed to explode and kill first responders. Nope, the full facts on Columbine would not lend much support to their bull headed charge to ban rifles.
Did you ever wonder why the most outspoken gun control advocates are people who never served in the military, have led what we call sheltered lives, have never been called upon to defend anything requiring force, are somewhat ignorant of weaponry and might even be afraid of guns?.
Did you ever wonder why some of the most vociferous proponents of gun control are not willing to discus the real issue, not willing to discuss alternatives such as banning high capacity magazines, instead of rifles? Could it be that they are being paid by the gun control lobby to sway public opinion, and are only in it for the money?
Just a few things to wonder about, besides why our paychecks are suddenly smaller, and why Benghazi is suddenly out of the news, with no real answers yet.
Kevin Foley’s column, entitled “Needed: ‘Well-regulated militia’ — and guns”, which appeared 12-28-12, is indicative of the lengths to which the gun control advocates will go, in order to persuade you to abdicate your rights.
Foley erroneously, alludes that the founding fathers were so dense that they thought we would still be armed with muskets 200 years later; that the development of weaponry had reached its final stage, in 1783. His statement that the 2nd amendment must be examined in that context is so misguided as to make it almost laughable. Suppose we examined all the First Amendment in the same manner.
Since the founding fathers had no idea that we would have so many religions to choose from, we must limit our choice to those in existence in 1783. They number a half dozen or so. No Church of Christ, No Seventh Day Adventist, No Jehovah’s’ Witnesses, No Muslims, etc.
The founding fathers could not have possibly conceived of the mass communication media we currently enjoy. Therefore, freedom of the press must be in accordance with what they did know. Newspaper must, forthwith, be published on flatbed letter presses. No electrically powered presses can be used. Radio, television and the internet are no longer allowed. After all, they did not exist in 1783.
As far as freedom of speech is concerned, it must be practiced as it was in the days of the founding fathers. Orating from a soapbox in the town square is permissible. Spouting off on radio, television or the internet is not allowed. Written material must be produced by quill pen and ink. No mechanical copying may be done. Publication must be by the same means allowed for the production of newspapers.
That all sounds pretty silly. Right? No sillier than Foley’s insistence that we apply to the 2nd amendment all the restrictions of that which was known at the time.
Indeed the Constitution of the United States is a living document, the law of the land. The founding fathers knew exactly what they were doing when they put the 2nd amendment in there. They had just fought a .long and bitter war against a tyrannical government. They were also aware that any government could, at any time, become a tyrannical government. The 2nd Amendment is in place in case that happens. It is not for deer hunters and target shooters, but for those who would defend their liberty, even unto death.
Do not be misled by the tricks and ruses of the gun control advocates. Their ultimate goal, regardless of what they may profess, is to totally disarm the citizenry, thereby making us subjects, and not citizens.
