Of course promises were made, drumpf said if someone “just one” had been armed “kapow” the gunman would have been stopped? It turned out that there was an armed person, there was also a former marine and a former army soldier but still they died.
We the people elect supposedly honest politicians to carry out our wishes and protect our nation, but we have one vote THE NRA has billions of dollars.
Everyone screams “it was my second amendment right to carry a weapon “to own and bear arms “so let’s look at that
“A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the protection of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”
That was written in 1791, the country was 14 years old the average musket in the hands of a well-trained soldier took 30-60 seconds to reload and fire, there were on 11 states.
The definition of a militia in 1791
, That whenever the United States shall be invaded, or be in imminent danger of invasion from any foreign nation or Indian tribe, it shall be lawful for the President of the United States, to call forth such number of the militia of the state or states most convenient to the place of danger or scene of action as he may judge necessary to repel such invasion, and to issue his orders for that purpose, to such officer or officers of the militia as he shall think proper; and in case of an insurrection in any state, against the government thereof, it shall be lawful for the President of the United States, on application of the legislature of such state, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) to call forth such number of the militia of any other state or states, as may be applied for, or as he may judge sufficient to suppress such insurrection.
“Foreign nation or Indian tribe”
It shall be lawful for the president upon application to the legislature?
So the right to bear arms was to guarantee that on occasion that commancheros came over the hill on ponies, or the red coats snuck in from Canada with their muskets and powdered wigs you were ready for call up by the president, this also allowed you to hunt to feed the family.
Now I am not writing this because I am a gun hater I am writing this because I am a hater of mass murder and slaughter of small children.
I was a trained by the Australian navy to be accurate up to 1,000 yards with a Belgian slr 7.62 mm rifle which in the 70’s was the weapon of choice for all commonwealth military forces.
I was taught “a gun is always loaded, even when it’s not
An automatic weapon is for war not for private citizenship to own
That less than 1% of 1% of the citizenship has the emotional wherewithal to point a gun at another human and shoot,Special Forces count on this so they can choose the best of the best
The NRA screams “licensing our guns and the next step is they’ll take them”? They license your car you still have it? You are required a license to fish or hunt or operate a jet ski or be a hairdresser or a nail tech basically anything we do in this world it is a fact of life.
If you’re a non-felon, non -mentally ill patriotic American with no affiliations to terror groups foreign or domestic what do you have to worry about?.
The thing that confuses me is no one believes a word a politician says? Right you are told that by your parents from the moment you can walk yet you drink the NRA Kool-Aid by the gallon? Are they not politicians in their own way? Are they not the ultimate spin doctors?
What happened to the good Americans that came around a person or family or community in a time of tragedy and did what was necessary to make sure the tragedy never happens again?
In Australia in 1996 the day after a mass shooting the parliament unanimously voted to ban all automatic weapons there has not been a single mass shooting since.
Yes criminals will always get guns but junkies will always get heroin but we still agree its bad and ban it
No one is saying we must be a gun less society, just for Christ sake some common sense. If someone is hearing voices , listening to isis or planning to kill everyone who ever called them stupid or just did ten years in san Quentin they shouldn’t get a gun.
Yes someone will reply that last night a man in niece France used a truck, should we ban trucks? Of course not but you can’t load 30 trucks into an extended clip and fire 600 trucks per minute at first graders can you?
If you need an AR-15 or an AK-47 or an UZI to hunt you’re a god awful hunter who has no business hunting remember “one shot one kill make each bullet count”
I have many gun owning friends all over the world, and to the best of my knowledge this doesn’t apply to them, they are all sane non isis non felon safe gun owners who know what they’re doing so please don’t unfriend me I’m not talking about you.
Before you argue with me or scream at me ask yourself does the NRA run your life?. Do they pay your bills will they protect your family? If you answer no the next time they open their mouths ask yourself who they are really speaking for some gun manufacturer’s bottom line or the safety of a class of first graders?
A gun is a piece of metal and sometimes plastic and wood it gets stolen or broken you simply get a new one! look at your sleeping family whataisle do you replace them in? you can hunt with the same velocity bullet a 30.08 you just don’t need full auto if you have a glock you’ll stop an intruder or a violent offender intending to hurt your family and you’ll scare th crap out of a drug fucked burglar. tell the NRA to mind their own house and stay out of yours.
