These people break laws. That’s why they are criminals. They do not care.
Gun laws should be intended to make it easier for the law-abiding to have as many guns and as much ammunition as they want. It’s called freedom with responsibility and it seems like that’s what was intended by the Constitutional amendment. You can keep and bear arms, but at the same time, it’s also your responsibility to defend yourself and others if necessary.
Not to knock law enforcement or the military, but there will be those times when they cannot be present to protect you. Could the Maudleys have called the cops after Long disabled their phones? Even if they had been able to call, it will still take time for cops to arrive. Once on scene, what would have stopped Long from taking the Maudleys out before he was taken down?
I continue to be astonished by the Liberals’ flawed ideology that more laws and restrictions on gun access will somehow prevent tragedies. It is my opinion that “control” in “gun control” is part of their overall philosophy that they, or government should micromanage every aspect of Americans’ lives.
The fact remains that you cannot control everything. The freedoms that America was founded on give everyone the best shot to not only reach their potential, but to survive in this unpredictable world.
Earlier this week, I’m sure you heard about a young, Australian baseball player being shot in the back of the head by some “bored” teenagers. Do you think that if they didn’t have a gun, they would not have found some other weapon or means to kill the ballplayer?
Evil exists in the world. The Founding Fathers recognized this, and it was further demonstrated by AFSCME President Danny Homan, who, within 90 minutes of a press conference to explain what had happened in Bedford, chose to use this incident to attack the Branstad Administration and further his union’s political agenda. Some will say that is what I am doing here. You can think that, but to me, I’m defending our Constitution and our homes. That is what Jerome did and what the founders of this country wanted us to have the freedom to do.
Take care of yourself and thank you for reading.
