Why is it craven individuals dance in the blood of victims each time there is a horrific crime committed?
It’s not a liberal vs. conservative issue. It’s about decency.
There’s nothing decent in using the blood of small children to advance one’s cause. In fact, it’s repugnant.
A Congressman says we must “exploit” the deaths of these children to pass more gun control. Has this man no decency?
Mayor Bloomberg tells us we must “take immediate action” to restrict gun rights. Illinois Governor Pat Quinn, in advocating for sweeping gun bans said, “We have to make sure that our laws protect students.” Father Pfleger, one of the shrillest voices for gun control in Chicago, crassly used the massacre as an opportunity to say, “We’ve gotta deal with the gun issue”.
A liberal position would advocate for liberty by opposing racist, classist and sexist gun laws, instead of advocating re-enacting past tyrannies.
Connecticut has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation and those laws didn’t protect those children. That school was a gun-free zone and the make-believe protection it afforded did nothing to protect those children from evil.
All of these laws and rules failed because evil doesn’t respect laws or even societal norms against murder. Evil has no compassion and doesn’t respond to reason.
Evil lusts to destroy and to kill.
Gun-free zones let wicked men know they will not face meaningful resistance in carrying out their evil deeds.
Yes, firearms in the hands of good men and women are a powerful force for good over evil. Guns are tools that protect children and families from evil.
Guns in the hands of good men and women deter wicked men from evil deeds.
Disarming good men, as these charlatans Bloomberg, Pfleger and Quinn advocate, will leave evil men free to victimize the young, the old and the weak, just as they did in the Medieval times when the common man was debarred the possession of weapons.
Let’s not set ourselves up to repeat the tyranny experienced by mankind during the Medieval times.
Let’s choose freedom and liberty instead.
And remember, gun control is more about control than it is about guns.
