    "The Vile Consequences of Gun Control"

    Good read, this is a good example of someone who 'gets it'.

    There is a vision by many in the world that if only weapons were banned there would be less death attributed to weaponry. This is particularly evident in the gun control crowd. In the old west movies the townspeople were usually defenseless or not proficient with guns and relied on the heroic gunslinger to rescue them for their lack of ability and/or courage to face down the thugs. Although fiction, the premise behind this portrayal was valid.

    When the only guns available are those illegally possessed and/or acquired, the law- abiding live at the mercy of the government. If the government is inept, ill equipped, corrupt, unrestricted by law and/or focused on other priorities than protection of its citizenry then there is only an open gate for thuggery to enter and pillage, destroy and kill.

    A law that calls for keeping guns out of the hands of the law abiding citizens never mentions that the means of enforcing such a law rests on the fully armed government agents to enforce the law. This means guns must be produced. It means that only the government agent can possess a gun. This means that the criminal will acquire these government guns either by bribe or theft. And the law abiding will be subject to the criminal minds who have now been freed of the worry of having their victim defend themselves.

    The land of the free will not be free if the government takes away the right of self defense, the right to own personal protection devices and ultimately as a consequence the right to life. In a world where terrorists could infiltrate and kill ,individual Americans must be able to armed. If the United States needs nuclear and conventional deterrents from aggression what gives political leaders the arrogance to think individual Americans should be denied this option for their personal safety and welfare? If the politicians cannot trust the citizens to own weapons, what make them think the voterís judgment is valid as they claim a political mandate from these voters? A world where private citizens are only taxpayers without any rights is not the American dream.

    Can't say things a whole lot better than that!!!

    Mind you - we keep saying it - over and over - always in the hopes that just now and again - some of ''them'' might actually ''get it''
