In earlier years before the NRA distorted the meaning of the 2nd amendment, this
argument might have ended in fisticuffs and the parties would have gone home
afterwards, sore but not seriously injured.
Following the bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Wayne LaPierre
stated that the Federal law enforcement agents killed in the bombing were,
“jack-booted thugs who got was coming to them.”President
George H.W. Bush, who was a gun owner and life member of the NRA resigned with
the following statement: ““…. Al Whicler, who served on my
Secret Service detail when I was Vice President and President, was killed in
Oklahoma City. He was no Nazi. He was a kind man, a loving parent, a man
dedicated to serving his country and serve it well he did."I am
a gun owner and an avid hunter. Over the years I have agreed with most of the
NRA’s objectives, particularly your educational and training efforts and
your fundamental stance in favor of owning guns."However, your
broadside against federal agents deeply offends my own sense of decency and
honor and it offends my concept of service to country. It indirectly slandered a
wide array of government law enforcement officials who are out there, day and
night, laying their lives on the line for all of us…”
There's a Sam Elliott quote making the rounds asking if people are foolish
enough to believe that criminals are going to obey gun control laws.Since
this campus is a gun-free zone and since Chicago had 500 murders last year, it
begs the question.
This is just some left wing conspiracy to make guns look dangerous.
Guns keep us safe?A 15 year old child in NM went into his parents
closet and killed them with their own gun.Background checks for any
guns, ammo limits, a required gun safe would have kept this family alive.
One news preliminary report this evening said that both of the individuals in
the argument were packing. So they pulled their toys out and proceeded to pop
caps at one another.Obviously the solution to things like this will
be to require everyone else to be packing guns, too.Then they can
all open fire and calm the situation down immediately. When they are all dead,
think of how calm and quiet it will be!Yeah, right . . . .
