Good morning friends.
What a shocking blow in the face of Orlando that Senate Republicans hold the line Against key gun reforms. Nearly every Republican voted it down.
They actually voted Against expanding background checks and an amendment that would block suspected terrorists from buying guns. Yes, you just read that. Its hard to believe that a vote like that would be necessary in the first place. You would think logic would easily prevail here. Nope, its not clear enough that suspected terrorists should Not be allowed to buy guns, we have to vote on it.
Being that’s the case, we should vote on whether people should be allowed to douse themselves in gasoline and light themselves on fire. That is how ridiculous this gun debate is. Nobody should be able to buy a gun if they’re on a suspected terrorist list. Who cares about their 2nd Amendment rights ? We have massive lives at steak here. Just this past week Joe Biden said, “The 2nd Amendment is not Absolute”
The second Amendment was adopted in December 1791, yes 1791. Let me do the math, that is 225 years ago. And yet people refer to it as if the Founding Fathers ever imagined assault rifles, automatic weapons, AR-15’s and etc.
The NRA and gun lobby have schmucks like us focusing on something so ridiculous that we are missing the main issue. Where is the vote to ban all Military Style weapons to civilians? I’ll tell you where, its nowhere. Assault weapon sales are through the roof again. The NRA is known for their saying, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” — That is not correct. Let me flip that right side up, “Guns and people kill animals and people”
My name is Scott Smith. I have no kids and will leave no legacy behind. I speak straight from the heart today. The chessboard is crystal clear to me. Smoke and mirrors do not cloud my vision the way the NRA and Gun Lobby are clouding America’s vision. Please read my statement below and then just a few more comments after that. At the end of this post, I’ve included very insightful links from all around the media chain, including one of my own.
“Ban all assault weapons from civilian use. Terrorism or no terrorism, nobody needs an assault weapon. Less guns equals less deaths. It won’t solve everything, but it will save lives. The NRA is an apparatus of death, they need to be shut down. America’s values are inverted. We need to put lives before profits. Enough is enough. We have a major gun epidemic in this country. Get rid of the NRA and Assault weapons”
Post continues now;
We have an Extremism problem in this country, Radical Islamic’s (not Muslims) and young White men. Both are terrorists. We all know that. We also have a huge Gun Epidemic in this country. Many a times the Gun Epidemic and Extremism problem end up in the same lane and a massive collision takes place. Gun control works. Ask our Australian friends. It won’t solve everything, but it will save many many many lives. Let me repeat that, “GUN CONTROL WORKS” – Australia’s Success with Gun Control. At the end of this post there will additional source links to substantiate what is written here.
So why is the NRA and gun lobby so hellbent on stopping any common sense gun reform ? Its simple, “Money”. Its simple and yet it continues to fly under the radar because of the 2nd Amendment. “The Right to Bear Arms” is the front used to guise their blood thirsty profit desires. I have news for all the God, Country and Gun fanatics, the Invisible Army is NOT coming to get you. So grab your guns and run outside on your porch screaming only to the trees, “Nobody is taking my Guns”
The NRA wants a heightened state of alert. There is money in conflict, not in peace. Gun control would bring more peace and that is a no no. The NRA and Gun Lobby puts Profits before Lives. They always have. The 2nd Amendment and gun control debate is not as confusing as it looks. The intention is to scare and confuse everyone and drive gun sales up.
This post is not to bash money. We all know money is important in this life. But how important is it ? Where is the line drawn ? How much is enough? I can say with conviction that Money is Not important enough for the lives its taking and ruining because of the Gun Industry. Enough is Enough. America’s values are inverted. We need to put Lives before Profits, not the other way around.
The NRA uses the argument, “why should law abiding citizens be punished for crime, terrorism, accidents and etc committed by other people” — I would like to answer that question. That argument gives way for more gun violence because it keeps guns very accessible to anyone. Isn’t saving lives more important than people’s rights ? Or at the very least, isn’t saving lives worth some gun reform ? Of course it is.
About 2500 children and teenagers die from guns each year. Think of that alone. The total number of gun deaths is much higher, but even that statistic in itself should have initiated more gun control. Nope, don’t mess with the NRA and Gun Lobby with respect to gun deaths. Less deaths equals less profits for them. Maybe LGBT community will finally take the NRA down. That link is from the Washington Post. Let’s hope so.
Every rational gun reform proposal is declined before the full suggestion is even heard. The reason its rejected is because the gun nuts say it violates their Second Amendment rights. Again, there is money in the conflict and the NRA and Gun Lobby will Not budge when it comes to money. “The Right to Bear Arms” is one giant euphemism for keep the gun sales up and gun deaths high. Even the family that invented the AR-15 said it was Never intended for civilian use, only for Military use.
Did you know over the last 10 years there has been many different smart guns produced. Smart guns with all sorts of technologies to successfully bring down gun accidents. Guaranteed to have reduced many gun accidents. Guess what the NRA did ? They made sure those guns never made it to the market with every trick in the book. Smart guns are bad for the NRA. Anything that brings gun violence down is bad for the NRA and the Gun Lobby. Reference link; The NRA and Gun Owners Hate Smart Guns.
To the Gun fanatics; The world is more one than ever before. The world is more ethnic then ever before, get over it. We’re Not going back to the slave era as much as many of you would like, its not happening.
In my opinion, the NRA is indirectly the biggest terror cell in the U.S, maybe even the world.
