USA – -(Ammoland.com)-The disclosures of the last few months regarding FISA Court machinations and other felonious acts by a major party intent on retaining power reveals the ease with which our country just might have been stolen from us. These power mad traitors showed us how very valuable the Second Amendment is.
Let's say it another way. We almost lost our kids' freedom. But, we still may.
Our country is filled with ignorant people whose lives are based on an illogical confusion of love, hate and fear. They beg to be led by liars and demand the comforting, but false promise of, safety, like the fake designation of Gun Free School Zones.
That debate about Gun Free School Zones are now on again. Our President understands that when we compromised the Second Amendment, by accepting the Gun Free School Zones Act, we converted the schools, where our children studied, into dangerous soft targets, where our children died.
Remember how uneasy we were back then? We permitted this situation to develop. We remained quiet while our leaders accepted this foolish path to ‘safety'.
Now we face the inevitable result of that terrible compromise and deadly law. Its failure has guided the Leftist crowd to the next step on that path.
So yet again, we find ourselves in a fight to accept another faulty law – that of banning all semi-automatic firearms.
It's a simple compromise. We keep our Second Amendment and some of our weapons and the Left power grabbers quiet down until their next opportunity to flood the streets with loud, ignorant activists.
Following the recent horrific school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, it would appear that there are a sizable number of gun phobes who are being driven into a frenzy with the expectation that, if they get angry enough, they can ban semi autos in the US and maybe even damage the Second Amendment.
The school massacre is being used by loser Democrats who think they can salvage some power. They have propped up an ignorant young pipsqueak to act as ‘pied piper' to the youth of the country. He's named gun owners who speak the truth as child murderers.
On March 24, 2018, they filled the streets and news media with demands of immediate gun bans. They received a great deal of global attention.
But frightened children, organized by liberals, who waited for a horrible massacre, are not showing us the way to safety, but to chaos. We American gun owners know and understand that. We are not like Australians, who peacefully accepted their new laws, after the massacre in Tasmania. Here in the US, we believe that a semi-auto ban will take us to the brink of another civil war.
Warning Sarcasm Ahead:
But there is a law that can be shown to work, because statistics, unquestionably, support it.
All Blacks should be banned from owning and carrying any firearm. Such a law would undoubtedly save many lives and most of those lives would be Black lives.
Look at this CDC graph!
If one subtracted murders by Blacks from the statistics, the murder rate drops like an anchor, exonerating all the rest – even violent Hispanic drug gangs – from irresponsible gun control charges.
The reality is that the murder rate for Black males 20-29, is a whopping 89 per 100,000!
Who could contest such a reasonable idea? No compromise with truth would be required. The truth is so clear that not even the slightest hint of racism can be found in the logic.
OK. OK. OK. Let's get back to reality. Such racist laws should/would fail as we know that laws with similar intent in Democrat run cities already have failed. The black market of business is always ready to supply criminals.
Most importantly, we cannot permit any law abiding person the loss of self-defense rights. Ever.
And so we should not permit our children the loss of their defense rights just because they go to school and because we hold children and teachers and their schools in high esteem. The ideal of a peaceful world, to which we all aspire, is no reason to compromise with foolish liars who wish to use the politics of horror to consolidate their power.
We should not permit our children the loss of their sovereignty, because the next time our Government is violated, there might not be a Trump. We need to stand our ground firmly. 2018, via the Mid-term elections, is going to be a difficult political year. If our Constitution, and our Country, go down, then the concept of individual sovereignty will be only a footnote in the history books written by enemies of freedom.
It’s not a Democrat or Republican thing. It’s not even a Left or Right issue, either. It’s only about the children.
