Why It’s Time to Repeal the Second Amendment
But sometimes we just have to acknowledge that the Founders and the Constitution are wrong. This is one of those times. We need to say loud and clear: The Second Amendment must be repealed.
Here we go. The loony-left is at it again, including our president who—no surprise here—in the wake of the worst shooting in US History, (Except for the Wounded Knee massacre) calls for gun control.
The AR15 used in the shooting is an assault weapon. The second amendment was put into place to protect us from a tyrannical government. Rounding up the guns, like they already did in Paris, France, won’t stop the shootings. The Bataclan nightclub was a gun-free zone….150 dead. Interesting how Rolling Stone and Obama as well as myriad of celebrities, jump on the no-guns bandwagon.
May I remind you that the Boston Bombers used pressure cookers to create a bomb. Perhaps we should round-up those nasty weapons of mass destruction from every kitchen in America!
The problem is not the guns, the problem is the ideology of radical Islam. Obama didn’t address this and as The Donald pointed out Obama seemed more angry at Trump than he did Omar Mateen, the Orlando shooter. Obama was petulant and excoriated those who pointed to his inability to call the act the work of radical Islam.
The reason why it’s important to call out, by name, radical Islam, is that this is the driving force behind the heinous, cowardice, acts being committed world-wide. It is the ideology of radical Islam that must be confronted. By not calling it by what it is, Obama can and does steer the focus to gun-control, which is not the issue.
Think about it. If there had been one or two people “packing” at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, the entire scenario that went down, most likely would have had a different outcome.
Same thing goes for the Batacaln club in Paris as well as the unarmed soldiers who died at the hands of another Jihadi, at Fort Hood.
In closing todays post: I just love when Hollywood jumps on the no-gun band wagon with feigned righteous indignation. Meanwhile, these actors shoot up more people and the body count is through the roof in the violent movies hollywood turns out year after year! (Do as I say and not as I do.)
Rolling Stone is out of touch with reality. People should be trained in gun safety and schools should have teachers who are packing. If a shooter knows someone will shoot back, they’ll think twice about engaging. In Israel this is the norm, teachers are armed.
In the meantime, Obama is allowing hundreds of so-called Syrian refugees into the country and there’s no way to vet them. Who is coming across the southern border?
The second amendment should be held sacrosanct to all americans as it is our only defense against a tyrannical government.
The communists in Russia rounded up all the guns as well as Hitler and the Chinese. Nothing new here. If the people can’t shoot back, the powers that be can round them up and do whatever they want to them.
Of course this is America and that can’t happen here right? Two words come to mind. Wounded knee…. Just ask the Native Americans how giving up the weapons worked out for them…. By the way when you read the paragraph below, when it refers to “The Ghost Dance,” according to Chief Joseph, it was, in fact, The Holy Ghost Dance. These people were born again spirit filled Christians.
WOUNDED KNEE: CONFLICT BREAKS OUT
On December 29, the U.S. Army’s 7th Cavalry surrounded a band of Ghost Dancers under Big Foot, a Lakota Sioux chief, near Wounded Knee Creek and demanded they surrender their weapons. As that was happening, a fight broke out between an Indian and a U.S. soldier and a shot was fired, although it’s unclear from which side. A brutal massacre followed, in which it’s estimated 150 Indians were killed (some historians put this number at twice as high), nearly half of them women and children. The cavalry lost 25 men.
The conflict at Wounded Knee was originally referred to as a battle, but in reality it was a tragic and avoidable massacre. Surrounded by heavily armed troops, it’s unlikely that Big Foot’s band would have intentionally started a fight. Some historians speculate that the soldiers of the 7th Cavalry were deliberately taking revenge for the regiment’s defeat at Little Bighorn in 1876. Whatever the motives, the massacre ended the Ghost Dance movement and was the last major confrontation in America’s deadly war against the Plains Indians.
