Gun Control – Punishing Millions For The Crime Of One

Punishing millions for the crime of one evil, drugged up mental case killer.

Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Gun control punishes the many for the crime of the few.

And in our contemporary situation, following the crime at Sandy Hook Elementary, the gun control Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) plans to propose would literally punish a hundred million people for the crime of one.

In 2005, Gallup polls told us that 30% of Americans owned guns and that they majority of them did so for personal protection. By 2012, that ownership figure seems to have risen to 40% or more Americans owning guns. Still, two/thirds of these gun owners say the reason they purchased a gun was for personal defense.

That indicates one million gun owners (at least).

On Dec. 14, Adam Lanza took guns that didn’t belong to him and committed horrific crimes with them.

And Feinstein and the Democrats are reacting to this crime by pushing new laws, requirements, and controls on the 100 million gun owners who had nothing to do with this crime. This is just one more troubling, and immoral, aspect of gun control–it punishes the many (in this case, 100 million gun owners) for the crime of the one.

Of course, Democrats are quick to point out this isn’t just about Sandy Hook. It’s also the Aurora Shooting and the Clackamas Town Center shooting as well.

But does this make the pursuit of gun control any less immoral? To say we’re not punishing 100 million for the crime of one individual only, but for the crime of three?

(By the way, at Clackamas Town Center the shooter also stole the gun he used. Like Lanza, he wasn’t even among the 100 million gun owners in America. Instead, he was just a man with criminal intent.)

I have never seen the Dick Act directly but believe it was mostly for the development of an organized militia, the National Guard, in response to the Spanish-American War. Subsequent parts of the law were changed such as placing the Guard, at times, under Federal control, thus they can be sent overseas. The law itself is hard to find but there is one guy who everyone repeats on the subject. I read a scholarly article which mentions nothing of any strengthening of the second amendment. I'll be willing to read it again if I you give me a source.

The other thing no one tells you is Dianne Feinstein actually carries a concealed handgun with her in her purse…

Senator Feinstein and her gun grabbing cronies are going to introduce legislation after the holidays.Its a Assault Weapons Ban like Clinton had before when he was in office.Feinstein wants to make the Nation have the same restrictive gun laws as California has now.Only Ten Round Magazines,Very few AR and AK type rifles allowed and they have fixed magazines so you have to use a bullet to press a button to release the mag.It slows reloads down.I'm so sick of Feinstein.I remember when at a anti gun rally.She was given a AK-47 to hold and she sweeped the audience with the… Read more »

Please! I put up this post and almost lost my breakfast. No more wicked witch of the west.

Seriously, We now must realize once and for all that no compromise is possible. The 1/2 of my friends who are anti gun believe all gun owners are just one tantrum away from a mass shooting event. They NAN NOT be reasoned with. They are to afraid of guns and gun owners. Many won't even come shooting with me for free. Too frightened. NO COMPROMISE!
