Sometimes it’s wise to take stock. To see where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going. It helps to shape our understanding of things in general and some things in particular. Today I took stock of the world around me, especially from a political point of view, and here’s what I learned.
We, as a nation, are in some serious trouble that reaches right down to the core of our very being. We have political issues that directly involve our Constitution and the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights – and it certainly IS a Constitutional issue, no matter what anyone says to the contrary.
There is a well designed movement on-going that seeks to disarm the American people and their plan is to do so in small bites until owning or possessing any firearm is illegal or taxed so heavily that the average American couldn’t possibly afford to do so. They’ve successfully brainwashed their media wing to redefine all semi-automatic weapons as “assault weapons”, despite the fact those very same weapons have been legally sold for many decades and as many as 270,000 of them are legally owned at this very moment. If they have their way, every one of those legally obtained firearms will be included in the revised definition of “assault weapons” and be subject to extremely high taxation, permits, background checks and – basically – confiscation.
Some People Are Just Plain Stupid.
JFK – Last Of The Truly American Presidents Elected As A Democrat.
They tell us, from every corner – “We believe and support the Second Amendment. We don’t want to take your guns away from you”. All the while moving absolutely in that direction with legislation on the federal, state and local stage.
Making matters worse for the good guys is a spate of almost copycat style shootings in and around schools, with the primary focus on the horrible murders committed in Connecticut. There isn’t a sane American who doesn’t abhor what took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, and the gun control faction reminds us of that horror every single day. Their reminder is almost always followed by the now very tired “we’ve got to do something about guns” rhetoric, as though the handguns (No rifle or shotgun was used in those murders) he used somehow pulled their own triggers and killed 26 people. The focus is seldom, if ever, on the person who committed the crime; it’s always easier to blame the weapon and pass a few more laws in the foolish thinking that guns are responsible. And this is exactly where and how we know the goal is NOT gun control, it’s government control of the people and everything we think, do and say.
There are over 9,000 laws regarding weapons currently on the books in America. But only a few of them are enforced and it has to be pointed out that the very people who blame guns for crimes committed by mentally challenged people are the very same people who have convinced us that those mentally challenged folks need to be treated and released back into society, despite the fact that the majority of them are never rehabilitated to the point where they would pass any sanity test! Ironic, is it not?
We’re also focused on an issue or six outside of the gun control circus, not the least of which is the murder of four Americans in Benghazi. Thus far, the coverup of those murders makes Watergate look like a high school prank.
And, Again, The Media – With Few Exceptions – Is Complicit By Refusing To Report The Truth.
The one person who has taken responsibility for those murders uttered a phrase that will follow her all the days of her life.
I think that’s enough doom and gloom for one day. I’ll let you contemplate the issues presented and add your comments below.
