In spite of the current headlines from around the country highlighting the rash of exposed killings by guns, the reigning CEO of the National Rifle Association Wayne LaPierre is quoted thus: Gun control advocates “insult [us], they denigrate, and they call us ‘crazy’ for holding fast to [our opposition to gun control]. In their distorted view of the world, they’re smarter than we are; they’re special; they’re more worthy than we are; they know better than we do,” he said. “The liberal media can keep hating on me, but I’m still standing.”
A wave of gun control laws across the country has everyone “up in arms” so to speak. Witness:http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2013/03/crazy-gun-laws-newtown
One law introduced allows bars and pubs to allow concealed weapons in the establishments. places where alcohol is served. How crazy is that? like the old adage states: Instant asshole, add alcohol.
Notice that it’s mostly Southern states that have issues with gun control laws. States where the mental Intelligence Quotient of the inhabitants is around the average of 15, numerically speaking.
In Georgia, there is a law put forth in the assembly that makes it mandatory for individuals to carry a gun. So what does the content of the law signify? That in Georgia you must be prepared to enter into a gun battle, if you enter the State? How will that affect the tourism industry , not to mention the general populace now existing in Georgia? Note though that the man(?) responsible for the introduction of the law revised the wording it once he thought it over.
What is happening to our country? Are we to have to resort to the lawlessness of the 17th century now? Are we to make the premise of the video game our normal way of living? Can we not venture out into our yards, go to the market, visit friends without fear of being gunned down? It’s stressful enough just to get to work in the morning, driving down the streets in the traffic in most cities, without having to worry that you have the chance of being shot just for switching lanes.
How far will people like LaPierre take this gun-toting mentality? Does this mean that if you and I disagree our differences will be settled by gun shot? Are our young children to be disciplined by violence, taught that ” the only good man, is a dead man”? What happened to value of life? Where has the moral content of our ethics disappeared to?
Hopefully those like LaPierre will come to see that guns have a place but it is not in the everyday fabric of our society. If guns are a need, what is the cause for that need? What is the cause, the essence of the core of the violence? Is this thinking a result of disillusionment with our society? Maybe it’s because there are too many people and not enough room for all of us. Whatever the cause, the solution is not a mandatory law that everyone must carry a weapon.
That’s just craziness to the extreme.
