"Might as well ban automobiles. They can be used to kill lots of people at once. You could just drive into a bus and overturn it."
"I thought you were a Liberal?"
"Then how can you be against gun control?"
"More control isn't going to solve the problem and it is just going to make a lot of people mad."
"That sounds like far right thinking to me."
I really think it is time for the country to stop being held hostage to a minority of people who think assault rifles are just fine to have in your home closet. Any discussion about gun control needs to start with guns. We can get lost in all the details but guns that spray lots of bullets quickly need not be readily available to anyone.
Some survivalists will argue that when the end days come they will need assault rifles to defend their homes. But what will happen when they run out of their big magazines? That will happen rather quickly as the hoards take over the towns and hungry people annihilate each other.
We better learn to live in peace and help each other before the apocalypse. There are other ways to control violent random shootings. Better mental health intervention? Guards in schools? People with guns standing guard everywhere.....just in case. That sounds like a horrible way to live.
Stockpiling guns is something people are doing all over our country. That makes me want to get away from here. Who are all these shooters? They must think they are good upstanding people who have no intention of doing a mass shooting. Im sure the mother of the boy who took her assault rifle and shot all the children in the school thought she was perfectly justified in having that weapon in her house.
Civilization requires regulation. I agree that the government gets carried away sometimes. But this ban on assault weapons and a clear message to register all fire arms and ban mentally ill people from getting hold of guns is a good idea. Felons do not need to have a gun in their closets. I do not need a gun in my closet.
I have no idea what I would do if there was a war or terrible collapse of our world. My day to day routine is very peaceful. Maybe I am living in a pink cloud but there is one thing I don't care about and that is making the gun people mad. Congress. Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, is now vowing to try to impeach Obama if he takes any action via executive order.
They want us to think that it will start a civil war. I think it might just be the road to peace.
