Guns And The 2nd AmendmentPosted: 17 April 2012
I guess it is no secret that my conserv friends think I am a Liberal…..I am more than that because to me a liberal is just a conserv that has been arrested….I am progressive meaning I want the country and government to progress forward to the future….and yes I am a radical….meaning I want real change to improve the country, not this willy nilly reform that we have had for the last 50 years…….but for some reason when I mention guns or the 2nd amendment all my friends get their conserv hackles up and tell me about how much safer the country with guns, or how much crime rate falls with the ownership of guns, or how it will be unconstitutional for any messing with gun laws……
Okay let me be clear! Even though I am on the Left politically….I have NO problem with gun ownership and I in NO way condone the “take my guns away” laws that some see lurking everywhere….In fact I have guns….blackpowder, shotgun and a pistol….I hunt but prefer bow hunting to guns…..so please believe me that I do NOT want to take your beloved guns away and would not support any action to do so….
I do have a problem with assault weapons and extended magazines…….there is NO need for either! And NO one needs 20 or 30 weapons….if they are for a collection then lead the barrels and hang them on the wall!
I mean if one wants such for “home protection” and needs multiple bullets to get the job done…… then I suggest that if they are that bad of a shot to spend a little cash and get a shotgun….you get more coverage for the bang. And if one would use such to hunt then I also suggest the local supermarket and save themselves the aggravation of trying to bag the game.
There is NO logical need for assault weapons and extended magazines in society…..if one feels that they cannot exist without these weapons then I have another suggestion…and if one wants to play Rambo…..JOIN THE MILITARY and live out your perverted fantasy.
See! Not all us Lefties want to steal your cherished guns!
I just wished ALL Americans were as paranoid about the other amendments and their possible loss as they are over the 2nd.
