She wrote the follwing reacting to the Ohio school shooting. And I just couldn't let it go unchallenged... Read away!
I would like to thank you for sharing your feelings about the latest horror caused by guns. I too am horrified by the actions of another sick or wicked child in men’s clothing.
Your vision of a gun free world is hard to grasp. How do you propose to rid the
million guns? The UN? They are working on a small arms treaty to
ban private ownership of guns on a worldwide basis. It’s destined to fail
even if passed. Again, how do you rid
the world of guns? I would feel safe in estimating that there are far
more than 1,000,000,000 guns in existence across the globe. How do you suppose they are planning on
getting their hands on all those weapons? US
If you had a plan, and a realistic one at that, then I might actually listen to you. Since all you did is react from your feelings rather than using logic to take this issue apart, you really aren’t in a position to intelligently discuss the issue of “gun” violence. But, in a sense of friendliness, let me lay out a few things you might want to think about and apply some logic to.
1. You cannot find a single instance of a firearm loading itself and willfully killing someone without a human hand controlling it. This is the old saying, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” That psycho kid loaded the gun and he pulled the trigger. He also willfully got a gun he shouldn’t have had access to. And he chose to use it to kill other humans. The gun made no decisions, had no voice and performed no independent actions in this event.
2. You have heard it before but here it is again, “If you take the guns from the law abiding, the criminals will still have guns.” Criminals are criminals BECAUSE they will break laws. Any laws. Even laws banning guns on school property. And those laws banning minors from possession of firearms. And laws making it illegal to kill other humans. They will even create guns out of pipe and wood if none exist due to a “successful” world-wide gun ban.
3. And this is the most important fact in my book, by Natural Law (look it up) I have a Right to protect my self and my family from anyone bent on doing them harm. The Bill of Rights (look it up) codifies and protects my preexisting Right to protect myself and my family with violence if necessary. Today that is done through the lawful use of firearms. I don’t hunt. I don’t shoot for sport. I carry a gun every day because of kids like this psycho.
I do own a couple of those billion guns and if no one else had one, and that fact could be proven to me, I would still keep mine. Gun beats bat. Gun beats knife. Gun beats mob. I plan on keeping mine.
So, with that said, let’s say you and your ilk manage to get a nationwide gun ban in effect. How do you plan on getting those guns? Let me tell you now, I am unwilling to walk to the local police department and surrender my firearms. Will you send your kids or your husband to get my guns? Not likely, that would be dangerous. Will you bravely come and ask for them? Nope. You will send the police. To force me. And if I resist they should kill me? Of course. Oh you sweet and glossy idiot. You are touching something very dangerous here and I don’t think you grasp the import of your foolish words.
Your best bet is getting some of your teachers armed to protect your kids. That is a far better solution to school shootings than starting a huge war on the streets of your nation with your attempt to get the guns away from the wicked and insane.
If having guns in the hands of the crazy among us is the problem, then the issue to deal with needs to be the effective and viable treatment of the insane. If the wicked are using guns to harm people, then the wicked must be opposed by equal force and removed from society, either to jail or the morgue.
It is just that simple. Not perfect but simple.
Yours in Freedom,
