Gun Control Won't Work!

Our government’s policies are killing us!

In the wake of the senseless tragedy at Newtown, CT I noticed the typical push by the left and the main stream media to further restrict our firearms and ammunition sales, possession and ownership in this, our mighty fine country. Once again the victims of this particular massacre were unarmed innocents in a gun free zone. The shooter, a mentally disturbed individual who had every intention of doing as much or more damage than what he did was the only person in the gun free zone who had the capacity to end the assault.

And he did… when he was finally satisfied, when he turned the gun on himself. Otherwise, the shooting would’ve continued until he either ran out of ammo or targets.

If there had been any known, armed resistance inside of the school that the shooter targeted then it’s highly possible the assault would not have occurred. Even if it had my bet would be that there wouldn’t have been nearly as many innocents killed. Reasonable, prudent, law abiding, gun familiar individuals who are in the protection industry have an absolute duty to protect and serve those they’re assigned to protect and serve.

And they do just that! Protect, serve. They recognize a threat, identify the threat and neutralize the threat using whatever means necessary.

Imposing more restrictions on the purchase, possession and carry of guns, magazines and ammunition simply removes tools from the tool boxes of those of us who are responsible gun owners and shooters. Those who wish to do harm do not care if they’re violating the law, whether there’s innocents in their field of fire or not. They’re intent on doing what they’ve set out to do and they’re going to get it done regardless of who’s in their way or what the laws might restrict. They’ll enter a gun free zone and kill just to kill knowing full well they can inflict horrific damage on oh so many innocents before they’re finally brought down. In most of those situations their sole mission in the end is to kill as many people as they can, make the biggest splash they can and subsequently kill themselves or be killed. Their actions, their name forever etched in history… right, wrong or indifferent.

By imposing gun control on those of us who are law abiding citizens the government simply makes everyone bigger targets. The government becomes an enabler to those who care less about the law, those who are hell bent on destroying as many innocents as they can before they or someone else brings an end to their craziness, their insanity.

Put armed guards in our schools, malls, theaters, stadiums. Anywhere our people gather. Encourage responsible, reasonable gun ownership and carry. Conduct background checks to include psychological testing on those who wish to purchase weapons and those who already own their weapons but wish to carry them in public, require semi annual weapons qualifications. If the government truly feels the pressing need to do something, do that! Don’t restrict us who would intervene if necessary to protect and to serve those who can’t by restricting what weapons, magazines and ammunition we can possess and where we can carry them.

In short, use common sense when trying to solve this “problem”. Punish those who commit the crimes, not those who haven’t.

…and quit making targets out of innocents. Your policies have been and still are failing miserably!

The following was wholly copied from CLASHDAILY.com. Sad but true! Chicago, the home of obama, rahm emanuel and so many other corrupt local and national politicos has some of the toughest gun laws on the books. Gun control means everything to Chicago. If you live there you'd think your kids would be safe at least. But, as you can see from the information below that isn't the case!

"446 school age children shot in Chicago so far this year with strongest gun laws in country – media silent

The cesspool known as Chicago probably has the toughest gun laws in the country, yet despite all the shootings, murders and bloodshed you never hear a peep about this from the corrupt state run media. In Chicago there have been 446 school age children shot in leftist utopia run by Rahm Emanuel and that produced Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, etc. 62 school aged children have actually been killed by crazed nuts in Chicago so far this year with almost two weeks to go. So why isn’t this news worthy? Is it because it would embarrass those anti second amendment nuts who brag about Chicago’s tough gun laws? Is it because most of the kids who were shot and killed were minorities? Or is it because the corrupt media doesn’t want to show Chicago in a bad light? Amazingly, no Obama crocodile tears either.

For those of you too dense to get the point of this post, it’s to make the point about gun laws. No matter how tough the gun laws are, the crazed nut jobs will find a way to get them and if they so chose, use them. No draconian law can stop this, no matter how well intentioned the law is, or if it’s just about leftists grabbing power from citizens and taking away their constitutional rights.

These unfortunate figures serve to show that if you take away guns from law abiding citizens, create gun free zones where absolutely no guns are allowed you give the reigns of terror, fear, power and crime to the criminals. Those criminals will do what criminals do... kill, maim, steal and destroy lives, innocence, families, property and honor.

Gun Control is not the way. Responsible gun owners are not your enemies. We're not who you should fear. Responsible gun owners aren't the problem. The problems are those politicos, those criminals, those knee-jerk fools and bleeding heart liberals who simply want control of everything, anything we do at any expense!

NOT MY GUNS!

Not today, not tomorrow... not ever!
