The anti-gun lobby knows full well they have no ground to stand on. There is nothing and no excuse possible to strip lawful and responsible americans
from guns and assualt weapons.
We do not live in Utopia. When guns are stripped from law abidding citizens, only the insane and criminals WILL HAVE weapons of mass destruction to
hurt and harm, leaving law abidding citizens to their mercy. A lighted match to a sealed apartment filled with pipe cooking gas is fully capable of
taking out entire floors of a building.
Banning gun is not the solution. It is suicide and democide as well. The solution lays in curing the real ills of our society.
Some claim policemen are everywhere, but fact and reality is, had they been able to prevent crime when it happens? Very often, victims are left alone
to face the brunt of the insane and criminals, unarmed.
When a citizen is armed, chances are, it will take a very desperate, drunk or insane criminal to challenge the law abidding citizen. But then, as the
citizen is armed, he/she, even a grandmother only needs to calmly point and click the trigger, and be protected.
The only issue is for the lawful gun carrier to be sufficiently trained to handle a gun. Sometimes, the production of a gun is enough to frighten away
But in the face of a hardened criminal who stands his ground, that production would not be enough. He/she needs to DARE to pull the trigger - to aim
for weak points to disarm the criminal if there is time, or to shoot straight to end the violence then and there. Each civilised human do have an
universal right to defend themselves and their loved ones from man turned beasts.
Thus, those who carry guns must seek for at least a few hours at the range to know how to use it, on what it can and cannot do, and what to do if one
faces a criminal with a large easily visible assualt rifle, and MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL - to be prepared to aim and shoot straight, not freeze up.
I do not enjoy writing posts such as these, for it is acknowledgement of the failure of our civilisation and world, in that we had NOT eradicated
VIOLENCE to each other, not just from guns but FROM OTHER WEAPONS used.
We chose to blame tools instead of focusing on the root causes of violence, in delusional hope that eradicating tools will eradicate violence. Even
our cavemen ancestors were not that stupid, for tools can be used for many varied purposes and were the cause of their evolution to civilisation.
It seems the anti-gun lobby are a bunch worse than neanderthals, awaiting and proposing extinction of undefended mankind by those whom are of the
more violent species.
Pragmatism needs to rule.
