Now I myself am not a gun owner. I am an archery lover. I prefer to use a crossbow during hunting season. I do not have issue with those that choose to use fire arms, or own fire arms. To each their own. I do how ever have issue with people making decisions for the masses without taking into consideration the wishes of those same masses. In my opinion that is not democracy it is a form of dictatorship.
Now I have an understanding that Democrats and Republicans have very different views of how to govern our country. Each party has their own agendas, and goals to achieve. But the bottomline should always be a better America for us all, not just what is better for their version of America.
When tragedies like school shootings and public attacks happen everyone goes on a massive public rampage about gun control, and I agree to a certain level. But I do not agree with making it difficult or illegal for law abiding citizens to purchase or own a specific type of fire arm due to the simple face that it seems to be the weapon of choice for these twisted individuals.
These cowards use these assault type of weapons to cause the most damage as possible in the fastest amount of time. But these are also the same types of weapons our brave military and first responders use to protect our rights and our lives. This includes our right to purchase and own these very same types of weapons.
Making the argument that a “ban” on these types of weapons will make it harder for criminals to commit violent crimes with these very same types go guns is honestly ridiculous. Those that wish to do harm to others will use whatever means necessary to accomplish those evil plans. Weather it means building weapons on their own, or purchase them illegally from a “black market”.
Simply put; banning a specific type of gun due to ones disliking of its capabilities is no different then banning a medicine because some people misuse it, or outlawing a motor vehicle due to the fact that it has four wheeled drive.
If this Blog has offered some of you, then I say to you… So what? Being offended doesn’t actually do anything to you at all. No actual physical harm has befallen you do to being offended. But Government officials making drastic changes to our rights without the support of the voters; that my friends may one day soon cause us all great harm.
