I have been monitoring the anti-Second Amendment agenda ever since the 1968 gun ban, and a consistent theme has been that the people who are against law abiding Americans owning guns are hopelessly ignorant about guns.
The school shooting was directly the NRA's fault. Not the shooter. Not the local cops who visited his home 39 times. Not the FBI who totally blew off at least two specific warnings about him (with pictures). Not Sheriff Israel (who we will be finding out much more about as the investigation progresses). Not the armed and trained "school resource officer" who failed to enter the school during the assault. No, it's the NRA's fault, even though the NRA is the one entity which has volunteered to work with schools, for free, to assess their risks. No, the NRA, which is the entity that developed and promoted the NCIS background check system (which many states do not provide data to). No, it's the NRA which has publicly said that no mentally ill person, no felon, no illegal alien, no one with a court ordered protection writ should own a gun. All of whom (illegals, felons, etc) are protected by the Democrat politicians.
Back when America was a place worthy of something more than ridicule and contempt, America didn’t have a “culture of guns.” Instead, what it had, was a culture of freedom. For each and everyone to do what they pleased. Whether that be having no guns, a million machine guns and cannons, or something in between. As in any free society, what someone else has, is exactly no business of anyone but himself. Certainly not even the most minimally limited government.
Of course, having a culture of freedom and all, Americans were also free to send their kids into conceivably risky crowds. Or not. And if the latter, not to be charged whatever it cost to maintain the risky-crowd institution they chose to avoid. As that is also something inherent to being free. As opposed to being nothing more than a slave, serving no other purpose than being a pawn in a gaggle of dimbulbs’ social experiments.
'... people who are against law abiding Americans owning guns are hopelessly ignorant about guns.'
But they are not ignorant about the use of propaganda to gain power.
I trust the govt/police to protect me from harm. Oh wait....
In the US, children are taken from their parents. In Europe, the Schengen Agreement may collapse. What's going on?
I commend Trump. The deal has few specifics, but U.S. president says the leaders will ‘meet again...many times’
Iowa farmers are upset over Trump's tariff policy. Soybean exports will drop and the price is already falling.
As Trump trolls Merkel, CSU's leader says "I can no longer work with that woman." German govt and Schengen may collapse.
The global trade war escalated moments ago when Trump fired back with a threat of $200 billion more tariffs.
On June 11, Italy stirred up a storm by refusing to allow a ship with refugees to dock. Repercussions reverberate.
The markets are reeling a bit today and bond yields are falling on news of escalating trade war threats.
A pension crisis looms as shown by excellent charts from the Harvard Kennedy School and the Peter G. Peterson Foundation
A GOP strategist said Trump "beclowned" himself at the G-7 summit. Canada and Germany will retaliate with tariffs.
