Gun Control-vs-Second Amendment
In my opinion gun control is nothing about crime prevention but everything about a “small elite group” exercising their control over all others.
Many of my liberal acquaintances think gun control will solve crime problems. I’ve not been able to convince these foolish people that laws do not prevent crime. Laws simply provide a penalty for those who break laws. Just ask the guy who got a speeding ticket.
In every society or profession there are good people and bad people. When the profession is military arms or law enforcement the bad people seem to get an inordinate amount of media coverage. Maybe this coverage is a good thing.
Yesterday I read two articles on FoxNews.com about bad cops. One was a SF deputy sheriff who was charged with bank robbery. The other was about the NYC police officer who wanted to cannibalize women. These two men took an oath to protect and serve.
A couple of months ago there were the army privates who murdered a co-worker and his girl friend to protect their conspiracy to start a new government. They took an oath to support and defend …
And we’ve seen a lot on the forums about the large ammo buys by several U.S. Government departments and agencies along with the questions about why these departments need millions of rounds of defense ammo.
Over the past few years we have read in the papers and online and seen on TV the events in Mexico of the killings, assassinations of good cops and political figures, beheadings, abductions, and running gun-battles. Over the past few years the media has reported over 27,000 killings in Mexico, most associated with the drug cartels. Many of the perpetrators were/are corrupt Mexican military and police. I think Mexico personifies gun control.
If we do away with the Second Amendment and bring in “gun control” I think the bad people mentioned above will flourish. After all, as in Mexico, how do you argue successfully with the bad guy with a gun when you’re not allowed to have a gun?
As the old adage goes, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely”.
