"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
A wise ole soul once said, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people”. I must admit (well I actually I don’t, but I will) that I was almost 30 before I honestly understood that wise ole saying. Being part of the liberal mindset through most of my 20’s, I was well knowledged in the fact that it was guns that did the kill’n. I was blessed that I learned better by my 30’s.
We own several guns. Our son and his wife own several guns. Those guns have never strayed. Never wandered off on their own and committed carnage. Neither has my pressure cooker or the drawer full of assorted weaponry known as knives. And it’s not by accident. . . as pointed out here here.
Guns, knives, poisoned mushrooms or pressure cookers are not the problem. It’s people that are a danger and commit crimes ever since Cain slew Abel. And yet — the Liberal Socialist Democrat Party still hasn’t figured that out.
In all honesty, many if not most have — that just doesn’t fit into their Leftist agenda, which is removing access and ownership of guns from law abiding Americans. You might than ask “why”? The answer is just as obvious — so law abiding Americans won’t be able to defend themselves against . . . . .
Our founders made sure we would be able to defend ourselves with guns. It was important to have that right, as a free people. And the people they knew we might have to defend ourselves against was — our own government. They didn’t want happening here, what had happened there. Good old Great Britain knew how to rule with an iron hand, just like all ‘big governments’. Some rule more brutally than others. Like Hitler, Stalin, Castor, Chavez, Mao Zedong and a host of other tyrants throughout world history. I’m not saying that’s transpiring now …… but who’s to say it isn’t on the horizon.
Remove or restricting guns from Americans doesn’t make us any safer, yet that is precisely what Democrats are attempting to do (and have for decades). Criminals will always have guns, knives or pressure cookers. Criminals and evil doers will always be around and ignore laws – man-made or God’s. That’s the nature of the beast and the ‘beast’ is the sin nature of man. And that is definitely something a Leftist will never admit. It’s easier and more convenient to ignore the relevant facts and say the answer is more government controls over free people. When in fact, all that ever is, is more government control over free people — which can and always has evolved into government tyranny controlling free people. Ask the Cubans.
I don’t want America to become Cuba . . . or 1930’s Germany, or the USSR. I want us to stay as free as Founded, which would mean going back many, many decades to where Americans could buy a big flushing toilet, as well as a Big Gulp without nanny Big Government breathing down our neck. But, I’m also afraid that ship has long sailed. Maybe we can legally hang on to our guns and maybe not. Washington has way too many wimp Republicans who refuse to fight because surrendering our Constitutionally and God given rights, is much easier.
