Not the Guns
Over the weekend of August 4th and 5th, two very evil people committed mass murders. The world lost many lives. The first thing I saw was people decrying guns. We MUST BAN GUNS!!! GUNS BAD!!!
Then, almost one week later, another shooting occurred when police served a search warrant in Philadelphia. The calls for gun control continued and even the NRA was blamed for someone who obviously wasn’t part of the NRA.
Well, I’m sorry to say, but it’s not the gun’s fault. It’s not a gun problem. It’s a people issue. People are bad. People are evil. Besides, the 2nd amendment shall not be infringed.
Whenever a drunk driver kills someone we blame the person. When 9/11 happened we blamed the terrorist, not the plane. But as soon as someone shoots another person, it’s a gun problem.
Gun Laws Don’t Work
Look at what happened to the United Kingdom after their gun ban. Trucks running into crowds of people. An increase in knife attacks to the point they have KNIFE TURN-IN BINS. Yes, you can’t have knives in the UK. Acid attacks are on the rise. Rape, assaults, and other violent crimes are up.
Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws. Yet, there are mass shootings every weekend. They’re not talked about though because it doesn’t fit the leftist narrative. The shooting in Gilroy was very quickly forgotten because there are strict gun laws in California.
What happened to Venezuela once they banned guns and went socialist? The government started killing the people.
I’ve been reading that nobody needs an assault rifle! The AR is bad! Well guess what? An AR or AR-style rifle is no worse than the .380 I carry. Unless you have a class 3 permit, you cannot own an automatic weapon. Handguns and rifles are all semi-automatics. What does that mean? One bullet is fired per trigger pull.
A People Problem
I may lose friends over this. I honestly don’t care. I will continue to fight for gun rights. It’s our second amendment right to keep and bear arms. I will not give up my weapons to a government so your feels feel better.
This is NOT a gun problem. It is a people problem.
Yes, our mental health system is broken. It’s not the insurance companies’ faults. No we do not need socialized healthcare. Do you know what will happen to hospitals across the country? 40% will close down because the employees will be paid medicare wages. Want to know what I’ll do since I work in a trauma center? What I’ll do if my wages are cut because snowflake twatapattamus’ want socialized healthcare? My ass is quitting and finding a new job. Why? Because I haven’t busted my ass for the past ten years and worked to get a bachelor degree to give away services for free.
It is not the guns.
It is not the insurance.
It’s a people problem. It’s a snowflake problem.
