Paying attention under an oppressive government is important. You see, we live in a country where a total nutcase can walk into a school and open fire on unsuspecting and innocent children before ending his own life. The whole ordeal may take less than 10 minutes given the right weaponry at the murderers disposal. This strikes our nation at the very core, as we are finding ourselves rather fearful and helpless. This feeling is invoked as a basic fear of being under attack, ill prepared in defense and largely unarmed. While the press slaughters such cases, giving maximum exposure to the terrorists involved, it also bends over backwards to display people in their darkest hour. This is not done to inform, it is done for one pure and simple reason and that is to cause the maximum amount of anger and upset within the otherwise peace-loving nation of Americans.
We Fight Abroad, Not Within Our Own Borders
This status quo is being challenged whenever we see shootings or catastrophic events that cause the violent death of more than one person. The CT school shooting does little to shed a light on the fact that a city like Chicago experiences 46 murders per month! That is 46 body-bags, often filled with and by people with tremendous criminal history and energy. Please put in perspective that murder is outlawed as a crime and even though its fundamentally against the law to kill someone other than in fully established self-defense, it nevertheless happens. Would it be scientific enough to state that most criminals show very little regard for the law? Putz! Who would have thought?! Please consider that your fight might not be against the weapons used in these crimes, it might be against those who use those weapons in any other purpose than self-defense. Criminals will continue to break the laws. End of story.
So, What Can Be Done To Prevent This?
Everyone with experience as a soldier, law enforcement officer and anyone who has ever had a weapon in their face, knows the basic rule of combat. In a life and death situation, all de-escalation measures are exhausted or have failed, the time of productive dialogue has passed. Quickly, the matter will cook down to a very basic question of survival. Will it be the victim or will it be the offender? The simple and quick answer if the victim is unarmed is painfully clear. We remember the saying: “Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight” and we remember comparing “bullets to cotton-balls”. An unarmed security officer placed at the door of your child’s school is ineffective and won’t last in a defense situation, nor will such person ever prevent a real evildoer from doing evil. A gun, handed to an untrained (and mostly politically pacifistic personality) may not save the day, either. Locking such a “classroom defense weapon” up in a safe could sign the death order to the children caught in that classroom. As a parent, I would like to have a say in how my child is defended, in a case of an internal terror attack on them. A quick, deadly force- response, is the only answer. We will have a choice to either place armed guards (please do not let TSA select and hire them!) in and around schools, or close our schools to prevent the increased risk of terrorism within our own country. Banning assault rifles, automatic weapons, or large weapon magazines is about as effective as speed limits or any other laws, which do not prevent criminals from breaking them. More laws will affect the wrong part of the populace, because they effectively only apply to those with any regard for the law. Outlaws and criminals always have and always will ignore LAW. Mentally ill people, on a suicide rampage will continue to do bad things. The United States has a extreme societal issue to take care of, and our issues have absolutely nothing to do with guns or access to them.
Stop Press Hypocrisy/ Bias
In times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. It is hard to overlook the fact that our press is biased and joining the liberal anti gun movement in banning and straight-out disarming the U.S. In fact, the press reports on every move made within the White House, treating the whole shebang as if all weapons were already banned and a Government seizure was imminent. (Y)our rights to free speech and self-defense if faced with a combat situation are not yet changed and are still intact! Don’t let the press treat the subject as if it already was done and over with. We have a civil war to go through before this is all said and done. Meanwhile, exercise your CCW with caution, protect your family and loved ones and don’t let emotional garbage cloud the fact that there were 20 tiny children murdered in CT by a person who would have done evil no matter what.
Our sitting President owns an arcade of Secret Service personnel to protect his life and the life of his wife and children. I doubt the Secret Service agents will use cotton balls to defend their president. Make no mistake about it, no human life is worth more than another, hence, as long as our President does not drop his armed security guards, I will not surrender my self-defense weapons. Those liberals who wish to continue to believe in “redemption” and “the good in everyone” shall be my guest in promoting their cause. I would prefer a sign on them, to make sure I will not waste a $3.00 bullet in defense of a totalitarian pacifist with an obvious death wish. Oh – and by the way: Join the NRA. If at anytime our constitutional rights have been under attack, now is the time to defend them. We already have “Taxation Without Representation” – so please don’t let this one slip. Adolf Hitler would have had a field day in this country. I know this sentence offends many people who have only left & liberal concepts of history and what brought him to ultimate power. For everyone with a background in this field, the writings are on the wall.
