America has a problem with Guns, it needs to be fixed, a plan is needed and the American public must demand a plan, it is already too late as this
past year has shown.
America does not have a problem with guns. It has a problem with public and private sector corruption, indoctrination instead of education and
critical thinking, race/group polarization, debt slavery, class separation, privatization, inequality in the legal system and an imperialistic
corporatized foreign policy. Most of this being promoted as "good things" by the MSM and Hollyweird. The plan to demand would be to end the
I am not saying ban guns, what I am saying is that something, anything needs to be done before it is your child’s name that the President
reads off at a memorial ceremony.
Please see above.
Yes I respect that Americans value their guns but something needs to be done, a plan is needed some kind of gun control changes are needed.
When it comes to gun control emotions understandable run high, many see guns as a way of life, a part of culture, a tool, a hobby and a fundamental
“right” but the sad truth is that some also see guns as a means to kill and at the end of the day that is the ultimate function of guns to kill.
When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty. Take away all the guns and only the
criminals will have the guns, both public and private sector criminals which of course leads us into tyranny.
As such something has to be done about this, the answer I honestly do not know there are some justifiable reasons for owning a gun, although I
must say I fail to see why anyone would need to own a AK-47 for example.
A government moving towards tyranny, would that be a good reason? Because they rarely if ever jam and they are a pretty nice gun to fire.
This is a problem that cannot be fixed overnight, it will take a couple of generations at least however now is the time to start acting to
protect the future generations of Americans and all sides need to understand this.
Education rather than indoctrination. Teach people that their rights end where someone else's begin and do this by example in the government. Can you
say uneccesary wars for corporate profit that disenfranchise the rights of the people of invaded countries? Sure knew ya could....
I don’t know if the above video has been posted before, but I agree with the message, the American public should demand a plan to change the
American attitude towards guns and to bring about greater gun control.
Yeah, "something has to be done" as you repeated over and over again, but you offer no potential solution. So I'll give you one, don't change the
gun laws, rather have the police and military uphold the constitution and the laws of the United States of America. Put all the criminal politicians
and bankers in jail where they belong and go from there. Arm the teachers, the NRA doesn't need to put a guard at every school, a single guard is the
first person that would be taken out. If a nutbar knew there were teachers with guns but didn't know which teachers, the gunman has no established
target which makes this kind of Newtown scenario improbable.
When I lived in Africa I conceal carried (with a permit of course) for years, I never shot anyone in anger or because of an argument, I always stayed
calm in heated situations, even in hot zones (panic and lose your head, you lose your head). Something to remember is, regardless of how good you
think you are, there is always someone else faster, smarter, more accurate, with a bigger gun or just plain luckier than you, so everyone generally
plays nicely. If you really wanted to fight, you'd park your guns and hire a boxing ring. An idiot gunman in a school (or any scenario) would find
out very quickly that his plans are short lived if a large number of people in the area he/she is attacking are armed and prepared to use those
weapons to protect their neighbors, bystanders and children. It's a good deterrent against idiocy.
