Every time there has been a mass shooting, gun grabbers are quick to lay blame on the lack of gun laws and scream loudly about how those in the federal government need to do everything in their power to take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens. At the same time, those Second Amendment defenders accurately point out that the common denominator of all the shooters is that they suffer from some form of a mental disorder that was not being addressed or was being mishandled because of the politically correct society we now live in.

In a perfect world, Hollywood and pro-gun groups like the NRA might work together to encourage a new attitude, which would focus more on mental health and less on taking granny’s legal gun.

Both the protests in Ferguson as well as the slaying of Christians by ISIS reminds us that we do not live in a Leave It To Beaver sitcom and people still need the ability to defend themselves and their families against aggressors who want to do harm. Truth is, those who want to commit evil will always find a tool to carry out their goal and most of us just hope ours is more powerful.

While it is wishful thinking that President Obama cut short his vacation because he was just worried about running into Hillary at another social function and have to publicly give her a hug, truth is, I am sure his pen and his phone will be quite busy for the next few weeks until Congress returns.

Issues like immigration, healthcare waivers, and judicial appointments are sure to be on his agenda. However enjoy the brief respite, Second Amendment defenders, because it is safe to say that after the midterms you will be back to work It is only a matter of time before those on the left will find another reason to reignite the assault on granny and the rest of the law abiding citizens’ right to own and carry a gun.
