I’m about as fed up as I can get with this whole gun control issue. The progressives do not understand the issues, period, nor do they care. This is going to piss off some people, and I don’t care. I don’t believe the majority of voters could pass a basic Civics test, so they shouldn’t be allowed to vote until they can. I mean everyone who is allowed to vote. All sides.
…Gun control proponents in the media and in Washington have capitalized on two noteworthy national conditions during the past month: first, the utter apathy of many moderate conservatives, centrists, and even the occasional open-minded liberal, as well as the enormous pool of individuals who simply don’t care about anything other than celebrities, reality television, and video games; and second, the fact that millions of adults in the increasingly suburban and urban American population don’t know anything about guns. This dangerous combination of apathy and ignorance allows politicians and journalists to get away with intellectually dishonest arguments, to repeatedly parrot inflammatory slogans such as “assault weapon,” and to peddle outright lies that stoke the flames of mass hysteria…
You can choose to have a gun, fine with me. You can choose not to have a gun, fine with me. I don’t really care, your choice. I’m not one to force anything on anyone, but I can tell you one thing for certain, too much government is a bad thing. History repeats itself, and, as before, this country is being eaten from within. We’ve had Revolutions to prove it.
As far as I’m concerned, I would rather have a gun and not need it, than need one and not have it.
