An armed society is a polite society. Who wants to live in a society where everyone is armed for self protection? I DO!!!
According to the New York Times, “The reaction of some [the Alexandria attack]was that the only solution is yet more guns. Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama, who was among those who came under fire on Wednesday, said, ‘It’s not easy to take when you see people around you being shot and you don’t have a weapon yourself.’”
They also admitted to the fact that “all people in that situation, unarmed and under fire, would want long to be able to protect themselves and their friends,” BUT that was quickly reversed when they then posted the following:
Yet consider the society Americans would have to live in–the choices they would have to make–to enable that kind of defense. Every member of Congress, and every other American of whatever age, would have to go to baseball practice, or to school, or to work, or to the post office, or to the health clinic–or to any other place mass shootings now take place–with a gun on their hip.
Excuse me? This is ALREADY how American live their lives, you just don’t see the guns. It’s called, concealed carry? It is now legal in all 50 states and people are safer because of it. HOWEVER- the problem we are having now is the voices in this nation that are telling people guns are evil, guns are bad…and you shouldn’t carry one or it means you’ll be a target. Or the easier it is to carry, the easier it is for bad people to carry. None of this makes sense of course. However, people are starting to take that fear backed theory and believe it. Guns are bad, we must not have them, we must not carry them….this is how we will be safe.
And for those no gun zones? Really? Does this mean that a bad guy, with evil intention that shows up to a ‘gun free zone’ with his gun is going to turn around and leave…because he does not want to break the law?
Yet all those that are law abiding citizens will then find themselves unarmed, and in direct danger of being killed by a madman with a gun…who doesn’t care about the law, or whether he is invading your “safe space”. It’s all very ridiculous.
And the “mass shootings” are not occurring where Americans carry guns daily. Rather, they are occurring in the gun-free zones which the left and anti-gun business owners established in society. In those places, law-abiding Americans must give up their hope of self-defense and, sadly, often become sitting ducks for criminals who ignore gun-free signs.
Who wants to live in a disarmed society where everyone is unarmed against Islamic Terrorists such as in Paris, France last November. Islamic Terrorists armed with AK 47’s, slaughtered 130 disarmed French citizens. Unlike the USA – the citizens of France do not have the “right to keep and bear arms” — the right to own and carry firearms in France is not protected by law.
France has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world. French gun laws proved to be a total embarrassment to gun control advocates worldwide last November because it was gun control laws that got those French citizens killed. You have got to be out of your mind to support gun control in today’s world. The NYT is no doubt the world’s leading communist propaganda machine.
A society where everyone is armed?
A society where everyone has a lock and alarm on his/her door, keeps the honest people honest.
Keeps the bad guys guessing.
