I haven't been involved in any Gun debate on here or in person before
today. In fact I have never really given much care to the topic. For
some reason this yesterday has made me form an opinion on the topic. I
was considering getting a concealed carry permit in my state along with
my wife, but now as a matter of choice I will not. At least I will live
like I believe on the matter.
I have seen multiple facebook
posts on the topic of, California bans Assault rifles, how did that work
out, Chicago bans guns and they have a huge gun problem. None of those
laws matter, when you can get those weapons in the next state over in
california's case or outside the city limits in chicago's case.
weapons are still available to anyone somewhere in this country. For
the life of me I can't figure out why someone actually thinks owning an
Assault rifle is necessary and a right. When would someone ever use it to defend themselves?
Next I hear people say you need the guns to fight against the government because we can't trust them. Assault rifles were banned in this country from 1994-2004. If you had already legally purchased one, it was allowed, but no new ones were allowed to be made and sold in this country. I didn't own one then or now, and the government then and now has yet to come and over power me due to my not having any guns.
Banning guns will not stop this. True it will not eliminate these mass shootings altogether, but do we really believe that not having guns easily accessible wouldn't thwart some of these? Using these mass shootings is not the time to discuss this issue? Using fear to promote an agenda? Then when should we talk about it? Twenty children that's 20 were killed in a shooting at Sandy Hook elementary and america's response was FU we love our guns more. America did not care at all to do ANYTHING to change the problem. Why do we make some drugs illegal then, it doesn't stop use altogether. I realize we are just going to debate this for nothing and for the remainder of my life I will have to live with mass killings happening in america. At least people get to keep their beloved guns I guess.
