Gun Free Zones, the New Killing Fields
Violence has plagued humanity throughout time. Before the invention of guns the weapons of choice were rocks, clubs, arrows, swords, and spears. Millions died by these weapons. Those bent on violence will find a way and a weapon; sadly it is the way of humanity.
After the recent shootings the usual “gun law” arguments have all flared up, the Left willing to exploit any chance to advance their cause. When logic fails them they have no other choice than to play on sympathy. Violence fine and justified when it serves their purposes but Heaven forbid a person should be able to defend themself.
Twenty children dead, that’s a hard thing to swallow. Almost as sad is many of them would still be alive if the school officials would have been armed and trained to defend themselves and the kids. Sad we will trust them to shape our kids lives, develop them, guide them, but not protect them. “Gun Free Zones” creating a shooting gallery for the sick and twisted. Had he not taken his own life I dare say many of those same Liberals would be fighting to save him from the death penalty, further proof of their own irrational thinking. We'll protect the killer but not our children, that's just nuts.
I’ve written many pieces on gun control. The arguments hashed and rehashed countless times throughout the years. One thing that cannot be argued is the simple fact that the top 10 most violent areas of the country all have extremely strict gun laws. The Left just can’t seem to understand that criminals don’t obey the laws.
The most basic freedom is the right to live. Twenty children lost that freedom. Those that wish to limit that freedom by taking away our ability to protect ourselves almost as guilty as the shooter. They provided him with the opportunity and the means.
Violence will not stop by eliminating guns. The harsh reality of the world is that evil exist, and always will. No amount of law will stop that. It’s the way it was, the way it is, and the way it will always be. Our only hope is to minimize it by teaching love and virtues, guiding the upbringing of society with morals and values, and when all else fails, shoot the ******** before they shoot any more kids.
There can’t be police on every corner, in every building, at every home. Those that kill don’t need guns, McVeigh used fertilizer. Truth be told every law abiding citizen could all go armed and there would still be nut jobs finding a way to kill. But, send a few straight to Hell in a blaze of gunfire from their proposed victims and just watch how seldom it begins to happen. Check the crime stats for Kennesaw, Georgia.
Gun control solves none of these problems, but gun possession can sure be a large part of the cure.
