Here’s Your Sign
I’m amazed at how quickly we forget. Somebody goes crazy with a gun and immediately there are parrots shouting “Gun Control” at the top of their lungs. I guess if they say it long enough and loud enough the threat of political pressure causes corporations who thrive on political financing will cower down just to appease those yelling the loudest.
Recently we’ve had active shooter situations in schools, shopping centers and events and many situations were stopped by someone open carrying or with a concealed carry permit. Think about that for a moment, an active shooter was stopped by an actively armed citizen because law enforcement had not arrived on the scene and people were in harm’s way.
Contrast that with literally hundreds if not thousands of people killed in cities around the globe. Major urban areas in Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle and other places that are so called safe havens for criminals because of strict gun control laws and are under the control of democrats in government.
The Bill of Rights protects every US citizen’s rights to free speech and self-defense (own and bear arms) against intruders (including an out of control government). American’s have fought and died to protect those and other rights listed in the US Constitution. In the days of the wild, Wild West outlaws with guns robbed and killed at will and during the depression of the 1930s bad guys with guns repeated the process until stopped by good guys with guns. Declaring a city, place or area a “gun free zone” is like hanging up a huge sign, “Take what you want because we won’t allow anyone to stop you”.
How soon we forget that evil succeeds when good people do nothing! Now is not the time for standing idly by and watching bad guys with guns to run amok.
Gun control is not gun control if you cannot control criminals with guns.
Assault weapons used to assault others must be dealt with by stopping the assaulter and a gun is just a gun until the trigger is pulled! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
