Let’s Have That Conversation About Guns

The second amendment is not about maintaining the right to hunt or shoot clay pigeons; it is about protecting our freedom from enemies foreign and domestic. But with crimes such as these, law abiding citizens here are ask to surrender constitutional rights; to be held accountable for the sporadic monstrous acts committed by a very few. Perhaps liberals should be held accountable for having removed moral training, God and prayer, from our schools where perhaps this young man might have recognized and restrained such evil thoughts. As heart wrenching these crimes are for all of us, I’d rather take my chances with a lone random madman then an unaccountable socialist government which also has a history of mass murder.

Foreign enemies: Army and CIA, domestic enemies: police, FBI etc etc. That's the way most of the countries do it. Don't you know that stuff like Newtown only happens in countries where it easy to get a gun. This would never happen where I live, because there is a social and cultural pressure not to own guns. And stop being so paranoia. You're watching waaay too many hollywood movies. Do you even know what socialist means? When was the last time your goverment comitted mass murder. Take a trip to Europe and you see a safer world that ain't ruled with fear.

Europe is not like the US demographically. Comparing the US to europe is comparing apples and oranges. If you only look at european countries you will notice that Russia has very strict gun control laws while Switzerland requires that every household maintain an assault rifle. But Switzerland has very low violent crime rates while Russia has very high violent crime rates. The difference is not the guns - it is the people.

If you look at all the countries in the world in descending order by homicide rate per 100,000 people annually you will see that the US comes in at number 108 (of 210). If guns were the cause of violent crime you would expect the US to be number one not number 108.

For once I agree with liberals. It’s high time to have a conversation about guns. Let’s start with the problem that there are far too few guns on our streets.

Wait, we can’t have that conversation. In fact, we’re not supposed to have what people might commonly describe as a “conversation” at all. We’re supposed to shut-up and listen as liberals, barely masking their unseemly delight at the opportunity, try to pin the murder rampage of one degenerate creep on millions of law-abiding Americans who did nothing wrong. The conversation is then supposed to end with us waiving our fundamental right...
