I got to wake up to the news that 20 people were killed last night at a night club. That turned into 50 killed and 53 wounded. And of course, I instantly thought “Obviously a Southern white male demanding adherence to the Constitution,” much like any sane person would. But it actually turned out to be a Muslim terrorist. Ya know…starting to get annoyed by the word “extremist.” Just throwing that out there. Just smacks of PC-ness that is unwarranted at this point in the game. And, of course, I made a prediction that Obama’s response would be “We have to get rid of guns, people.” And that’s pretty much what he did.
So, of course, we have to put up with them importing more Muslims into our country (seriously look up the immigration rates since 9/11…illogically, we’ve increased the visas to these countries). So after these shootings, instead of examining how we look at mosques that we know are espousing extreme view points, we are talking about banning guns. Shall we forget that the mosques raided after the Paris attacks had a stash of AK-47s and ammo? Or, as I like to say… “Guns should be illegal so criminals can’t get them…just like drugs.” You don’t think these animals wouldn’t get guns or explosives or poisons or whatever they want to use to kill us?
Obama asks if we want to be this type of country. So, that led me to ask…what would it take before I decided that I would be willing to give up my right to keep and bear arms? I guess the first thing I would have to see is that all of our government officials and buildings give up their own guns and armed security guards and fancy alarm systems and live like the average American. If they feel safe enough to live like that for ten years…we can talk, but really I wouldn’t go for it even then.
The right to keep and bear arms is the Second Amendment for a reason. They said “Shall not be infringed” for a reason. I’m not willing to give up my Constitutional rights just because of these terrorists.
Long Live the Constitution!
