GUN CONTROL - This seems to be a no brainer for me. If all firearms are banned or any type of firearm is banned and forbidden to be owned by responsible Americans then the only people in America that will have guns are criminals. Period.
The fact is, there will always be lunatics intent on killing people and if not with a gun, then with a knife or a bomb or whatever else they can get their hands on and use as a weapon, including chemicals.
**Guns are not the problem, selling guns and ammunition without intense background checks is a problem.
**Allowing mentally ill people to purchase guns and ammunition, allowing them to have access to guns and ammunition, is a problem.
**Parents not having a pulse on what's happening in their homes, not talking with their children, monitoring their children, parenting their children, is a problem!
I have no issues with responsible adults owning assault rifles. Home invasions typically have 2-3 criminals busting down your door. I'm a single mom. Trust me that little Barney Fife 6 shooter isn't going to work for me (or for anyone else.) Do the math. Three assailants, six bullets. Think about the element of surprise, the jacked up criminals, you being scared shitless and first and foremost, protecting your family. Would you be able to accurately shoot all three assailants with just six bullets? And what if one or all decided to charge you while you're standing there holding your little pistol? I'm pretty sure if you were holding an assault rifle there would be no charging, in fact after a few moments there would be no movement at all, and yeah, I would do that for my family. Am I advocating for assault rifles, bazookas and machine guns?
No, but I am advocating for the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution -
"A well Militia, being necessary to the of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
That being said, I still believe our - we, the people - greatest weapon is education.
Okay. That was my serious whine of the morning. My not so serious?
