It never fails, every single time someone uses a gun to commit a crime, we put the blame on the guns. This logic, and the mindset that guns are some how the problem is absolutely insane. What’s even more insane, is the fact that people are actually buying into this crap.
As many of you already know, there was another tragic event in the United States involving a gun. Three individuals went on a shooting spree, killing 14, and injuring another 17. (Numbers based on the time of this writing)
Within two hours of the shooting, President Obama started pushing his Gun Control agenda again. Shortly following this, Senator Dianne Feinstein was quoted on Twitter as saying “I’m monitoring the shooting in San Bernardino closely. Absolutely heartbreaking that we’re faced with another mass shooting.” She failed to mention that the shooting took place in one of her gun free zones.
The bodies of the victims weren’t even cold yet. The injured were still under the knife at the hospital having rounds, and shrapnel removed from them. Yet here are the ever so competent politicians of America, announcing that we need MORE GUN CONTROL! Increase the restrictions on purchasing guns, ban the use of anything scary on a weapon, strip the second amendment from the Bill of Rights, ARREST ALL GUN OWNERS!
Yeah, because that will solve the problem right?
According to John Lott, the president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, “With just one single exception, the attack on congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson in 2011, every public shooting since at least 1950 in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry guns.” We should disregard logic, and statistics though. Just make the country a gun free zone, that will clearly solve the problem.
We are coming into a world where individuals honestly believe that it is not their responsibility to defend themselves. Instead the people are moving to the side, and allowing scared politicians, and fear mongering news media agencies, push them into a reality where only the police can defend them.
