US Constitution/Bill of Rights: Amendment II – 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.
All people alike no matter where you’re from or who you are, can agree that murder is wrong and evil. In the last year we have heard on the news of more and more shootings happening every single day. Whether it’s a single murder or a mass shooting, like the man involved in the Pulse Night Club shooting in Orlando that took the lives of 50 innocent people, it is a huge tragedy. It affects the family/friends of lives lost and in some cases the whole country. We are at a time of conflict. It seems more and more people are dying at the hands of guns. But are guns the main culprit? There has been a push for more gun control but is that the solution?
I have a question for you. Have you ever personally seen a gun sprout arms and legs, run out in the public, and pull its own trigger and start shooting people? If yes, I would advise you to get off the crystal meth. Democrat politicians and liberals alike fail to see the culprit behind all shootings and killings. It is the man (or woman), with ill-intentions and a heart that has fallen prey to evil, that will end someone’s life. When it comes to all shootings, it is always 100% a heart problem. Never a gun problem. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” – Jeremiah 17:9.
But an uneducated human being will start pointing fingers at the NRA or even worse, all gun owners. Progressives like to say that conservatives will demonize a whole group of people based on a radical minority but they’ll want to take away everyone’s arms based on some situations, like the Orlando or San Bernadino shooting. Hypocrites they are. What they and all of us have to realize is we are a nation of LAWS. The constitution of the United States of America is set in stone and if we look at the Bill of Rights you will see the 2nd Amendment.
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
Thank God for it! It says nothing about having a gun permit. It says nothing about meeting certain qualifications to buy guns. There is NOTHING like that in our laws! When you disarm the public, you jeopardize the security of the country and its people. The only thing stopping a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Who will save you in a gun-free zone when a killer comes in with a semi-automatic with a mission to blow as many people’s heads off as possible? You’re dead in that situation! Nearly 90% of all mass shootings that have happened in this country in the last decade has occurred in a gun-free zone. No more gun-free zones. With more gun control and regulation, killers will find alternatives. Knives being one. Making homemade bombs. The possibilities are limitless.
We are always going to have killings in America. That’s just a simple fact. I know as a conservative and a constitutionalist, American citizens have the right to bear arms and that right will protect many lives. That is just common sense. Our Founding Fathers knew exactly what they were talking about when writing our constitution over 200 years ago. Our solution should be allowing any citizen to purchase a gun, eliminating gun free zones, and teaching gun safety. And whether you say gun control should be allowed or not you must realize we follow a country with laws. If you do not agree with our laws, you always have the opportunity to relocate to a country that is more to your liking.
