Spiritual Suicide or Righteous Self Determination ~ Carry Guns

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- When the “mainstream media” refer to “mass shootings,” we never get to know what kind of gun(s) was used. They know, but they won’t tell us, unless of course, it’s an M4, Kalashnikov, et al, one of the ones they want confined to use by their political bedfellows, but banned from ownership by us “ordinary citizens.”

In any event, here is a paragraph or two you’ll never hear, nor read:

“Not one of the murdered/injured, bystanders, nor witnesses at this massacre were armed and thereby able to effectively stop this attack. Both company policy and state law prohibit the carrying of concealed weapons by these aforementioned persons. The sad, but predictable, the result of these manufactured ‘gun-free zones’ is, as always, pitiable carnage.

How did that ‘run, hide, fight (without weapons)’ advice work this time?

About as well as it always does?

And of course, where were our vaunted ‘security personnel?’ Hiding, like everyone else?”

Why are these words never, ever spoken at “mass shooting” scenes?

Meanwhile, boot-licking “woke” CEOs, who are just dying to climb in bed with every Democrat politician they can suck up to, and decry our Second Amendment as they dutifully mouth assorted other classic Communist propaganda.

Americans are buying up the entire retail supply of firearms and ammunition, and then some, but most are leaving those firearms at home, deeply fearful of violating a leftist “malum prohibitum,” issued by hand-wringing, woke CEOs (timidly peering-out from between their cadre of heavily-armed bodyguards), and also mandated by sleazy, hypocritical Democrat-heavy state legislatures, and city councils.

Neither wants American citizens doing anything to take care of themselves. They want only victims, lots of victims. They want all Americans to think of themselves only as pathetic victims.

Indeed, they want you to consider perpetual victimhood to be your sacred civic duty.

They love victims, but only as long as they stay victims.

When you don’t want to be a victim, indeed refuse to be a victim, they hate your guts.

Listen to them!

I have known several people who committed suicide. Only one used a firearm. 2 drove in front of oncoming trains at the same rural crossing. 2 hung themselves. 1 OD’d and another crossed the center line into an oncoming semi. Each one left a letter explaining their act. While its hard to except when someone you know or love decides to end their life it is their choice. How they chose to do it is of little consequence in relation to the act. People will find a way. One of the above incidents resulted in physical injury to a truck… Read more »

Move to orGONE where they will help you kill yourself. We have assisted suicide here. If I remember right about 8 years ago a young woman just didn’t want to live anymore because of a disease she had and she was only going to get worse but she was not bad at the time. They helped her out because they were merciful and it was the right thing to do. Ya, right!!!!!.

Their Life Their Choice. Your Life Your Choice. Until you’ve faced the pain, suffering and indignity of a prolonged Death. You have No Idea what you’ll choose. Everyone should have the Right to choose without the Stigma of condescending Holier than Thou’s.

You are free to think that. It doesn’t make you right, it just makes you free.

perhaps they should have been told that they were made in the image of God and that their life has value and meaning, even during times of suffering. many people think that if life isn’t going well for them then they should just end it. that is where faith in God helps if you are a Christian. we are told in the Bible that we should be thankful for everything, good and bad. faith is a gift to some, a curse to others.

I am truly sorry these experiences weigh so heavily on your mind.
But your comment is not relevant to the article. The article only lightly brushes against the the word “suicide” in the title, and the St. Maarten’s
quote at the end. You must talk to someone who can help you to find perspective, and there is a perspective,or you risk having sadness dominating your thoughts. What I sense as your compassion is too
valuable to lose, to an enduring sadness.
