Let’s talk about guns…
Currently there are about 300 million guns in the United States, and it seems that that number is growing dramatically because Americans feel a need for self-defense and security against terrorism and tyranny. As a firm believer and supporter of the second amendment, it is incomprehensible to me that the liberals continue to attack it. The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, adopted December 15th, 1791, states “A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Of course if you further analyze the desire of the present administration to do away with our second amendment, you soon realize that it’s a distraction. By making a big fuss over guns and blaming the tragedies of San Bernardino and Orlando ON the guns, the lefties are using that to avoid talking about the real reason that these tragedies even occurred…radical Islamists who want to kill Americans.
The Obama administration continues to bring in “refugees” with little or no vetting, and among these people are the ISIS barbarians. Also, because of political correctness, home-grown terrorists are allowed to carry out their attacks. This is the problem…not the guns. Did you ever see a gun suddenly get up and shoot someone? Of course not. It takes a person to do the deed.
Then we have the no-gun zones, which are an invitation to the terrorists because it says, “C’mon in and shoot. Nobody here will shoot back.” How stupid is that? In this day and age my philosophy is…where I go my gun goes. So, I have a concealed carry permit and stay locked and loaded. That’s self-preservation. Of course, there are people who should not have guns, such as the mentally-ill, radical Islamists, and criminals. However, banning guns for ALL Americans is a totally absurd concept.
To those who say, “It can’t happen here and San Bernardino and Orlando were just oddball occurrences,” I say you are delusional. It has happened here, it will happen here again and we better be prepared. The answer is not gun control. It is, however, banning the admission of more “refugees” until they can be better vetted, it’s doing away with political correctness in law enforcement, and getting rid of no-gun zones. Every school, business, church, and synagogue, should have someone working there who has a gun and knows how to use it.
Let’s not be like Europe, where they continue to import terrorists as well as having plenty of home-grown ones. They are also constantly under attack and have ongoing horrible tragedies in many European cities. I don’t know if they will ever wake up and realize what’s happening to their countries. However, that is their problem, not ours. This is the United States of America and what’s here is our problem.
This administration and Mr. Obama’s lefty followers are determined to ban, and even confiscate, guns in this country and this is something we must fight. Most Americans do not agree with the progressive left and we are finding that all sorts of guns and ammunition is flying off the shelves. Since the Orlando attack, sales have been soaring due to the threat of more violence and restrictive legislation. This is convincing more people to buy their guns. Assault rifles are sold out across the country as well as bulk ammunition of all popular calibers. Tom Engle, owner of Hunter’s Warehouse, told Stuart Varney of Fox Business Network, that his gun shop sold 30 thousand AR-15’s in a week, after the Orlando shooting!
It’s important to be aware of the UN Small Arms Treaty which was signed by Secretary John Kerry for the Obama administration, as a method to force gun control. If carried through, this will cause a complete ban on all weapons for United States citizens. As I see it, this will infringe on our national sovereignty, and this administration is ready to give that up to the UN. So far, it has not been approved by Congress, but our betrayer-in-chief wants it SO badly that he is open to writing an executive order to bring it about.
It is obvious that Barack Hussein Obama wants to disarm the American people so that more control and power can be acquired by the executive branch. This is one of the things that leads to a totalitarian state. Americans need to get guns, hang on to the guns, and fight any and all gun control measures. Let’s focus on the proper issues and take care of them. Let’s keep America safe.
