While many Americans don't know it, one of President Obama's main goals while in office is to ban firearms for the public and abolish the 2nd
ammendment. I'm here to tell you all why that is a very bad idea.
January 22, 1905 - 120,000 to 200,000 men, women and children marched against the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg, the capitol of what was at the time
Imperial Russia. They planned on presenting the Tsar with a list of demands that included things like fair wages, 8 hour work days, income tax,
universal Russian education, ect.
The front gaurdsmen were tipped off well ahead of time that the civilians were marching to them. They shot and killed 500 Russians, and wounded more.
Their own citizens. After tthis would come to be known as Bloody Sunday which led to the 1905 Russian Revolution.
It's amazing what happens when un-armed civilians try to plead for their rights to a very armed government. You people think our guys are any
different?? Maybe some of the Marines on ATS could shed some light on running excercise out and 29 palms... A little pop quiz some instructors like
to ask is "Would you shoot an American citizen?"
September, 1941, Babi Yar - German SS troops with the assistance of hired Ukrainian militia men kill 34,000 men women and children in 3 to 4 days.
Some (pretty think IMO) historians have said that the Jews of Babi Yar went to their deaths like sheeps in a herd. My response to them is that its
very hard to defend your family and countrymen when you have no guns and no access to guns. Especially when your invaders are carying automatic
rifles and sub-machine guns. The difference between resistance and submission depends very largely on who has posession of the Arms.
1999, Michigan - a six year old boy walked into a classroom and shot and killed 5 year old Kayla Robbins. Immidiatley afterward there was an outcry
from gun control advocates about "gun violence". President Clinton used this sad accident as a tool to put into legislation a law that would
require all guns to have mandatory trigger locks installed.
Now for most gun control advocates in a fantasy world, Kayla Robbins may possibly still live today if the trigger locks legislation had been in place
in 1999. For those who pay attention to reality,(which is usually not found in the news papers, and on TV) you may have heard that the 6 year old boy
who shot the young girl was living in a(n) operating crackhouse with his uncle. His uncle was a multiple offender (that means felon) with warrants
and his father was in prison. His mom was also MIA thanks to an addiction. Do you still think the trigger lock law would have helped??
Further more, our 6 year old offender didn't "go to a gun show" to avoid the loopholes, like many gun control advocates like to say. He merely
walked into his uncles bedroom while he was passed out from drinking and using, picked up the loaded .45 and went to school.
In the fantasy world of gun control advocates, guns kill people, people obey the law. In the real world an individual squeezes the trigger. And if
that person pulls the trigger on an innocent, the individual is breaking the law. Including gun laws.
Criminals kill people. But, being criminals they do not obey the law. Their crimes involve guns sometimes.
Automobiles also kill people. Between crime, and accidents they kill 50,000 people per year(average). Should we outlaw these as well to save those
victims? That's the logic the gun control advocates would have.
In the real world most that support gun laws are upper middle class, living in decent neighborhoods. Most have some sort of home security/first
response system as well. In the neighborhood I grew up in the only security system we had was what my mother could keep loaded on her nightstand.
Becasue in reality without that weapon a house robber could have had it pretty easy with only my mom and two kids.
August 23, 2000, Merced CA (close to home for me). The Carpenter Family incident- The Carpenter parents left work and put their eldest, Jessica 14,
in charge of her 4 younger siblings: Anna 13, Vanessa 11, Ashley 9, and John 7. Jesssica wakes up to sounds coming from downstairs. Upon
investigating she discovers a naked man pulling his pants up. She also quickly notices that he's barricaded all the doors and downstairs windows
from the inside. By the way he also has a pitchfork.
The man takes notice of the 14 year old girl and gives chase. Jessica locks herself in her bedroom upstairs, and proceded to escape out of her 2nd
story _ Jessica tells the police later that she wanted to get to her dads handgun but was unable to do so.
The intruder was a 27 year old man with a history of meth use. In the police report and in the local papers it was reported that this guy also had
problems with kids. He ended up killing 7 year old John and 9 year old Ashley with a pitchfork. After being chased through the house wounded Anna
and her sister Vanessa escaped and met with Jessica outside. The 3 of them ran to their neighbor's for help.
It was written several times in local papers that the girls asked thier neighbor to get his gun and help save their siblings but he wouldn't do it.
Instead he called the police. The cops opened the door to arrest the pitchfork weilder and he charged at them. They shot him 13 times to death.
Interestingly enough, as Jessica had said that she had thought to try and get to her dads gun to shoot the intruder, police asked her why. Her
response was that she was trained to use fire arms and even had her hunting lisence since she was 12. Her father had shown her how to shoot the
handgun as well. All surviving Carpenter children told police they would have shot the man if they could have.
To expand, Jessica also told police that she knew she couldn't get to the gun becasue it was un-loaded and trigger locked. It was also put high out
of her reach in a spot in her parents closet... doing no good for self defense.
I hope that by reading that some of you woke up a little. Taking away our second ammendment rights would give criminals like this complet carte'
blanche' to do what they will to an innocent, law abiding, unarmed public.
As it is Mr. Carpenter was more afraid of California state gun laws than he was of a burglar bringing harm to his family. Even if young Jessica could
have found her way to the closet to fetch the unloaded, trigger locked .357 handgun, it would do no better than a gun shaped paper wheight against the
pitchfork weilding psycho.
By this point some of you (patient) readers are probably wondering whats the point of all this? Why all these stories? Murdered families, government
sponsored massacres... This isn't about gun bans.
YES IT IS!!! It's all about gun bans. It's about what happens when people lose their guns. "a simple history is repeating itself would suffice"
you say... HA, I've been saying that. No one seemed to understand the history i was speaking of.
More to come, and a refference list i promise!!! thanks for sticking with a long post i know.
Been working on it for a while.
