“No One Is Saying Get Rid Of Guns, Just Make It Too Hard For People To Get Them”

Pro-2nd Amendment advocates keep saying that what the anti-2nd Amendment folks want to do is essentially disarm law abiding citizens. The Anti’s say “no, no, what we want to do is make it harder for Bad People to get and use firearms. We don’t want to take away the rights from law abiding citizens.” Then they go on to enact laws that make it harder for law abiding citizens to obtain firearms, and tell us exactly what they want to do, as we see in this screed by Jami Martin-Trainor at the John F. Kennedy High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

The Right to Live

Every time there is a mass school shooting, we hear the exact same thing; send your thoughts and prayers. But, are thoughts and prayers going to stop people from getting shot? Probably not.

Students are going to school every day, worried that they might get shot while trying to get and education. Isn’t it sad that we must think about the possibility of death more than our GPA?

So many problems could be solved in America if we merely had stricter gun control laws. No one is saying to completely get rid of guns. We’re saying to regulate who can get them and make it significantly harder for the everyday person to obtain a gun. It was known that the Parkland shooter had many mental health issues, such as OCD, ADHD, and anger issues, and yet still easily purchased at least 10 guns.

No one is saying to completely get rid of guns. They just want them left in certain hands under Government control, while making it damned near impossible for the “everyday person”, meaning law abiding citizens, to obtain them for protection from the criminals the gun grabbers go soft on and against a dictatorial government.

Notice that Jami completely forgets to mention that it was an utter failure of government in doing their jobs to deal with the Parkland shooter, meaning he was never put on the “do not buy” list.

Violence will exist, but the number of casualties that come from the violence can be decreased exponentially with stricter gun control. If the Parkland school shooter had walked in with a knife, he would not have been able to murder 17 people in minutes.

Or, he could have walked in with a bomb. Regardless, because of the criminal actions of a few, and often people who were able to obtain guns because government failed to do its job, the rest of us are supposed to give up our Rights? No. Hell no. Go pound sand.

Excuses are made by greedy politicians, who are only blaming the children, and not actually listening to us. We are citizens in America, and we all deserve to get a say in our own lives. Gun control is something that we need as a society, because children may only make up a small percent of the population now, but we are the future. We are the new generation and we deserve the right to live.

You get a say, but you don’t get to override the Constitution. Don’t like it? Try and change it. And, if you were honest, you’d be advocating measures to stop bad people from getting and using guns, not taking them from law abiding citizens.

  1. Jeffery says:

    The Supreme Court has made it clear that residents do not have the right to possess any and all firearms they might desire.

    Do you support more thorough background checks and serious law enforcement to keep firearms out of the hands of those likely to abuse the privilege? Or do you consider any such efforts an unconstitutional infringement on your 2nd Amendment rights?

    • formwiz says:

      Last I looked SCUS can’t arrogate the power to declare parts of the Constitution null and void.

      And, no.

      • Jeffery says:

        So you believe the Supreme Court ruling limiting access to sawed-off shotguns to be unconstitutional?

        Do you believe laws limiting access to fully automatic weapons are unconstitutional?

  2. Jeffery says:

    The high school freshman also typed:

    But mental health and bullying is an issue all around the globe. Mass shootings are only an issue in America.

    While mass shootings actually do occur in other countries, the problem is much worse in the US.

  3. Jeffery says:

    The other thing to realize is that all these middle school and high school kids will be voters in a few short years. It’s possible they will vote for politicians willing to infringe your right to own military grade firearms.

    • formwiz says:

      Then again they may be too afraid, apathetic, lazy, and stupid to leave Mommy’s basement.

      Of course, Jeffery assumes all kids think like him when it’s pretty obvious a lot don’t.

      • Jeffery says:

        Or maybe tRump will declare martial law and cancel all elections. TeaBag America will support it.

    • Hoss says:

      They can try it: many localities will just become sanctuary cities/counties/states. I’d love to get my hands on some military grade weapons, but you do you know how hard it is to get a tag for one of those?

  4. Hoss says:

    Has anyone volunteered yet to be the ones to go around confiscating all those scary “military-looking” weapons? All the emotional bleating from these kids is one more reason to remember children are to be seen, and not heard.

    • Are those the same kids who can’t be trusted to own a firearm until they are 21? Sounds like they are not worth listening to on this issue. And the only reason the communist media is listening to them is because the kids are saying things the communists agree with.

  5. Good thing that in America, they are free to not own firearms if they so choose.
