Why Does The American Public Think They Need Guns For?
Why should any citizen in any country think that they need to have a gun in their home or that it should be legal for them to carry one on them? Shouldn’t only the police departments, government agents and the military be the only ones to carry a firearm? Why should you or I as Joe Q Public ever have a need to have one of those things in our hands, can’t we just trust the different government policing departments to keep us all safe? Shouldn’t President Trump by Presidential Proclamation be able to abolish this Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that gun owners keep referring to?
There is something that I would like you to think about for a moment please. Have you ever studied European history at all? Those of us who have know that most of the people who wrote our Nations laws like the Constitution and The Bill of Rights descended from European countries in their recent past. Europe was a place where the average person could not own any firearms for any reason, if you got caught with one you most likely would be swinging from a rope before the sun went down. Only the governments, Royalty, and the Lords could have such things. Why do you think the reason was? Folks it is really simple, if the people had no arms then the government could do what ever they wanted to do to the people with no fear of physical repercussions. This way only the rich and powerful could and would have everything and the people, they kept them in starvation. Why do you think so many people wanted to get the heck out of Europe that they would take their families across an ocean with nothing but the clothes on their backs and or what they could carry on their backs? When you have no power, no authority, and no way to defend your selves you can either live in rags and eat slop or you can (if you are even allowed to) leave your situation and try to find a better system to live in somewhere else and that is what thousands did when they left Europe to come to ‘the new world’. Obviously they were hoping it would be a new world where they could have some freedom from the governments that oppressed them so when they decided to create a new country, a new government, they made sure it didn’t resemble what they had left in Europe.
The founders of the United States back in 1776 decided to make this a free country, free from government oppression of the people by the future governments of this land. They were smart enough to know that if the people had no way to protect themselves if future governors broke the laws of the land and decided to oppress the people the way Europe had done then the people had to have a way to over through that sitting Government. You see the fore fathers of this country were worried about the people loosing all their rights, and their lives to an evil crooked government. If you can not vote crooked people out then you needed to have the right and ability to forcefully remove such persons. Folks, you can’t do that if you can’t physically do anything to these crooked government officials. These men knew that if the people could arm themselves then they would have a chance of not being massacred. This was also a warning to those in power that if they were crooked that anyone could put a little gray pill into their brain ending their tyranny at any time. This was to hopefully help keep future politicians in line with obeying the country’s Constitution which was meant for the purpose of keeping this country a free country. This they knew would not happen if the people could not protect themselves not just from the government but also the ability to protect themselves from really bad people, rich or poor.
Most of the American people know that Mr. Trump and like-minded people want stricter gun laws here in this country and since Mr. Trump has not had the results he has been wanting in this area he has chosen to go after the ammo needed to make the firearms function. I personally am very much a non-violent type of person, I have never in my life ever shot anyone and I hope that I never will have to but I realize that possibility does exist. Why would such a possibility ever ‘need’ to happen? I will protect my family at all costs if the situation ever became necessary. Unless you are an idiot or you have been living in a cave on a secluded island with no radio or TV reception then you know that there are many thousands if not millions of people in this country that have guns for the sole purpose of robbing and murdering other people. These people who I am speaking of are the ones that can not buy any firearms legally, but they have them anyway. Yet our president and those like him would have it to where the law-abiding citizen can never buy one legally. There are many gun laws in this nation, we do not need very many more. We do need to close down the loopholes like exist at gun shows all across the nation where anyone can buy any firearm they so choose, all you must have is the cash, no receipts, no records.
President Obama as an adult lived/lives in the south side of Chicago Illinois. Illinois has the most restrictive gun laws you are likely to find here in America yet Chicago has some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country because Chicago is awash in firearms, illegal ones. Look at the situation in Mexico where only the drug lords seems to have weapons. If you are just an average citizen you can not own a gun legally, so what happens if a bad person who has a gun comes into your home? You are dead and so is all your family, or, if you are lucky they are only there to rob you of everything that you have ever worked to obtain. These bad people know very well that unless they are breaking into a drug cartel employees house that the residence has no way to stop you from doing whatever you want to the people inside. They decide they want to rape your mother, your wife, your kids, that all you have to do is shoot anyone who resist you, it isn’t like they can shoot back at you.
Here in America all people everywhere are more in need of multiple firearms now than they have ever been in the country’s history. We the people have the right to protect ourselves and our families from crooked cops and crooked politicians who protect and direct them just like we have the right to protect ourselves from the ‘common’ criminals off the streets who break into our homes or assault us on the streets or in stores etc. Chicago is a perfect example of why it is a bad idea to restrict the average citizen from being able to protect themselves. These folks who live in Chicago especially there on the south side where gangs run wild are at these gangs mercy because very few law-abiding citizens are able to purchase a gun to protect themselves with. I lived in the state of Texas for about 16 years, when I first moved down there in 1981 there were several times where a person walked into a place like a MC Donald’s restaurant and opened fire on the people inside each time killing many people who were stuck like ducks on a pond for the shooters. After several of these massacres had happened the State made a new law, one where people could (with a permit issued by the state) carry a concealed firearm. After this law was passed there have been no such attacks on innocent people in restaurants again. Folks the reason is simple, when these hate filled people decide they are going to go shoot up a place have you ever noticed they don’t go to places where they see police cars parked outside? These people want to go shoot unarmed people, they don’t want to be getting shot themselves. If you are going to do such a crime now they are aware that anyone or everyone in the building may have a gun and that you will probably get shot down yourself. These people are mostly just cowards, they want cheep fame, not a bullet.
In closing I want to bring up one other very important reason why all people need to be able to have firearms at home and on their person. This is because the whole world is now at the most dangerous position the world has ever been in. This is because of Islamic fundamentalist who are in every country on the globe and no one anywhere will ever be safe again no matter where they are, home, shopping, church, synagogue, a wedding or even at a funeral. Life would be great if there were no firearms in the hands of hate filled people anywhere, but that is not reality. People like our President can bury their heads in the sand and act as though evil does not exist but in truth when anything does happen they are leaving their butts sticking up in the air with a bulls-eye glued to it. I am not willing to leave my family and loved ones as fodder for religious idiots, dirty cops, or and out of control government who has no interest in protecting its citizens, only in taking from them, are you willing to put your family at risk like that? If you are, God love you, but you are an idiot when it comes to your own safety and the safety of your loved ones.
