Soooo, immediate and predictable was the response by the short sighted minds to lay blame at the feet of an unthinking tool: the gun made me a killer! Let’s dissect this a bit shall we.
It’s the automatic weapon that fires non stop that is the culprit. Really? Did you ever see a shotgun in the hands of a skilled instructor such as Tom Knapp? Did you know that a shotgun can do more damage than an ak-47 when used properly, or improperly?
If the shooters (killers/monsters) had ended the lives of 50 people with a Berretta 12 gauge, would there not be STILL the same reaction, and call for ‘gun control?’ Of course, and only an honest person will admit this.
If a man walked into a nursing home on the 4th floor, and systematically shot in the head 75 patients with a handgun, would there STILL not be the same reaction and call for gun control? Of course, and only an honest person will admit this. But the reason the automatic rifle gets all the press time in the eyes of the short sighted is because it plays to a narrative, a narrative that ignores: (a,) killing is against the law regardless how it is done, and substitutes: (b,) guns are evil in themselves and must be curtailed or even removed completely.
Hmmm. Ever seen a ak-47 go up against a tank rolling down the street? Absolutely useless, and a poor ‘killing machine’ against a bigger and stronger force. And this mere fact alone should send shivers up the spine of the shallow headed, that HAVING such a machine in the tool shed, will make others think twice before ransacking your house with a nefarious desire to steal, destroy, or even kill you and every one in your house.
Wait until foreign bodies invade your streets, or even your own government, and you will wish for the day that you had a shotgun or ak-47 for a back up, as opposed to your threats to the invaders with a plastic spoon.
It is against the law to kill people, be it with a screwdriver, a boy scout knife, a rope, a baseball bat, or a frozen lamb chop. The gun lobby is correct when they refuse to give an inch. Then it will be two inches, then a yard, then total surrender, and THIS is a problem for the law abiding citizen who has no protection against the godless and power hungry.
Take away a mans rights to defend his life, home and loved ones, and you just wrote a ticket to his own demise, for WHY should the lawless care about taking your life when you have no means to protect yourself? Again, the shortsightedness of the liberal mind that pretends evil does not exist, preaches everyone will wake up and ‘live in peace.’ Yeah, ok, sure. Ignore the fruits of sin to your own wishful thinking.
Killing is wrong. It is brutal. Putting crying children in front of the camera does not move me, as I can see through the drama. But why doesn’t ONE murder by a thug in Chicago move the politicians? Why is it always about the number of the deceased that moves people to prejudice? Why don’t you hear about 50 murders in Detroit, or better yet, why don’t you ever hear of the countless times a grandmother killed an intruder who wanted to kill her son?
It’s the narrative stupid. But it is against the law to murder people. Yet killing an intruder is not murder. But nooooo, a thousand warning signs were ignored by the actions of the deranged, who gave clues, and left bread crumbs that he was about to end the lives of people with a machine gun. People say they care, but they prove otherwise. They care allegedly AFTER the killing spree, but are mute to lift a finger so as to possibly spare the unnecessary deaths. Then the further carnage by the media.
I say school buses are far worse than guns. Imagine a lunatic hijacking a school bus with a hundred kids and driving it over a cliff. It’s a crime to highjack a bus and drive it over a cliff. It’s also against the law to drive the bus over the cliff with children in it. The bus is a tool. The gun is a tool. When handled properly, they are very useful. When in the hands of monsters, anything is a killing machine.
Gun control? Ha! Practice target shooting; your control will increase, but the gun is as harmless as a dove.
(But why post this and the vid? Because shooting is a sport, and protection is necessary.)
