OK, we’ve all seen the wailing and complaining about the shootings in Colorado.
We will doubtless see over the next weeks and months more calls for more stringent firearm control. An escalation, if you will of the war on individuals who exercise their second amendment rights.
But, let’s show some actual thought, some logic, and a spine…
Those people who got shot, those who died, were waiting for the police, thinking they had no need for self-protection… that the government was able to protect them. They were dependent on the falicy that the job of protecting them was the government’s and also that the government’s war on individuals using their second amendment rights to carry firearms, was sufficient for their protection.
Think, now; what would have happened, had just one armed citizen been in that room? Just one person who wasn’t a sheep? That one armed citizen could have stopped the situation long prior to the arrival of the police. Many lives would have been saved, many injuries averted.
Here’s the solution. More guns in the hands of citizens. Less dependance on government to do our jobs… including self-protection… for us.
Addendum: (David L) Now hear this. The Aurora shooting was in yet another so-called “gun-free safety zone.” Liberas keep expecting criminals to obey laws, and then want to further restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens, when criminals act logically. From David Weigel. Slate:
Again, though — the theater was a gun-free zone. “That’s where the chickens go,” said Block. “They go to where people are unarmed.” The shooter made a series of smart tactical decisions that minimized the risk of anyone stopping him. “I’m gonna guess one thing. He plays computer games. They’ll find computer games at his house. He’s not military. He’s an educated kid.”
In a sane society, free citizens would have the freedom to carry arms where ever they traveled, and nincompoop would not create, or keep, the so-called “gun-free safety zones.”
