More From Me On Gun Control

So you are a hunter and you really, really, need that AK-47 and the 30 round clip to go grouse hunting. In response to that, I have to ask; is that really hunting then?

If you are a hunter and really, really, need that AK-47 and 30 round clip to get those grouse, could it be that hunting may not be your calling? Are you really that bad?

My response to the people out there who claim to own assault weapons because they absolutely, positively CAN NOT get the animals they are hunting without them is: BULLSHIT!!!

The only reason you own those weapons and magazines is to kill PEOPLE. You know it, I know it, the little baby Jesus in the manger knows it. Unless you live in downtown Baghdad you probably don’t need any type of automatic weapon. Hell, even if you live in New York City, or Detroit, or Cleveland or wherever else you are in this country, you don’t need them.

Can we please at least get these weapons that were designed to do one thing and one thing only out of the hands of the general public? Is that really too much to ask? I don’t want to take all your guns away, but the ones that were designed to kill as many people as possible in as little time as possible need to go back to the people they were actually intended to be used by. You know the ones, soldiers and police. Let’s get some sanity in the guns laws please before somebody else’s precious angels are lying in a morgue waiting to be identified and the parents of the dead are irrevocably reminded that this is a world where littlest among us pay for the folly of man.

Gun Control

Okay, after what happened in Connecticut today, I can be silent no longer. We need stricter gun control laws in this country.

What do I mean by that? Private citizens should not be able to own guns. Period, bottom line, end of story.

I am so tired of seeing innocent people lose their lives because of some psycho who was legally able to obtain (in most cases) multiple guns and then go on a shooting rampage.

There have been 61 mass killings in the US since the Columbine massacre, including today’s massacre in Newtown Connecticut. How many more do there need to be before we get the picture? How many?

After the sheer number of mass killings in the US, how many other deliberate shootings take place every day here in the United States? How many people shoot a “loved one” in a domestic violence situation? How many suicides involving guns happen every day? How many accidental shootings are there in the United States every day? 

If private citizens did not own guns, 98 percent of these killings would be unable to occur. Yes, I am aware of the arguments that if someone wanted to kill someone else bad enough, they would find a way. However, it is a lot harder to accomplish a mass killing without a gun.
