This weekend for this first time in this history of mankind, people have demanded to have rights removed. See the issue isn't about school shootings or gun violence. It's about power. We can proselytize all day about laws and legislation, but at the end of the day, laws and legislation...they are just pieces of paper, enforced by the barrel of a gun.The irony is extremely disturbing. The protestors wish that Americans, give up their guns, at the threat of a gun. Do we not see where the power comes from? What do we give up next when we have no guns? We're not conspiracy theorists of tin-foil hat wearing Alex Jones fanboys, we just understand that basic premise that all individuals have a right to their lives and their liberty. Firearms in many ways are the guarantor of those items.The pen is only mightier than the sword when there is a better sword to back it up.
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Liberty is a dangerous thing; A double-edged sword. There is no such thing as absolute safety in this world. The hearts of the evil among us plot with intense desire to cause harm and shape our future in their twisted image. We cannot suffer the idea that giving up our most effective means of defense (our sword) against evil will grant us the safety we so desperately cherish.Guns, like cars and computers, are mere objects. When wielded by the immoral, all objects are capable of extreme loss of life. But they are all objects, objects in need of a human operator. It is an easy road to take, to blame the object and not turn the magnifying glass back upon ourselves.Banning firearms is, in essence, prescribing drinking water for a drowning man. It will only make the situation worse.
