Okay, some of you will dislike me. I am opposed to stricter gun laws in the United States. Why? After ALL those mass killings? Well because all stricter gun laws will do is make it harder to get guns, and hurt legitimate people who have a constitutional right to guns.
In the last two years or so, around the world there have been more and more killings by simply driving vehicles, cars and trucks, into crowds of people. So, will we ban all vehicles or write more vehicle controls into our laws?
It is not possible to ban any substance. Look at what happened when we tried to ban alcohol in the US. It was called prohibition and was a miserable failure, but made millionaires of many people, such as Joseph Kennedy, JFK’s daddy.
It is not about guns, it is about human behavior. It is about accountability. The current population if the United States is approximately 327 million folks. So, one here and one there commit a serious crime with a gun. Does that mean we take all guns away from everyone? Or limit them? That’s silly.
I believe in the USA, and I believe in the Pledge of Allegiance and especially with the ending, “with liberty and justice for all.” That’s everyone of every race and color, and gay or straight or bisexual, and so on. Smart or dumb, city or country. Let freedom ring. And so shall it ring with our rights. I do believe each and every crime is wrong and of course that includes the mass shootings and killings, but don’t take guns away unless we are going to take away all hammers, knives, cars, and trucks because if used wrong, they can hurt and kill.
Peace be with all of us.
