Common Sense on Gun Control

22 Feb

Brilliant.  I don’t know that the speaker missed a single point.  I’m not sure there’s anything else to say in support of the 2nd Amendment.  You can say it all in less than 8 minutes.

    From an politicians perspective i don’t believe gun control is common sense, why? Because the politicians will simply lose the publics trusts… the public will think something fishy is happening if the government start regulating guns… the public ain’t stupid… “for every action there’s a reaction!”
    Besides, when is the last time Americans had a revolution?

      Even if an uprising were to occur in America there will be no-way to quash it completely because, i believe, a small minority of Americans will never give up their guns. And additionally, if you consider the fact that NATO can’t even stabilise Afghanistan after 12 long years, I fail to see why some politicians would want to ban guns outright… “live and let live” is my motto.

      I’ll go watch the video now :D

      The politicians know they can not stop the criminals. They know they will be protected by their armed guards. They should know there is a reason they have to have armed guards.
      The politicians, such as Diane Fienstien should step back and look at what they have created. Health education and welfare, are you kidding me? Put our public education system up against Japan or Germany and see if you are proud of ours.
      We have to realize that what our politicians do and what they say are two different things. Will they be bound by Obama care? No! Do they have to serve 20 years before retirement? No! they only have to serve 1 term. Whose job do you think is the most important? Are the politicians proud of what they have created? I certainly hope not but I’ll bet they are.

      The bad thing is , when the government forces come for us we will be thinking the police or someone will help us. That will not be the case.
      The 2nd amendment is not allowing us to have arms in order to feed our families and only the politicians would have ever come up with the interpretation that we don’t need weapons of the capacity we desire because if you kill a duck with one of those it would be excessive. we ain’t talking duck hunting. We are talking self preservation.
      If you use GOOGLE you might want to consider that during Easter they posted a salute to Chavez. The communist that hates America. I should say former communist because he is a good one now. He is dead.
      They, google called me wanting me to advertise on google. I told them that google could shove it and send it to Chavez.

      Do you really think the dept. of education should be in the federal govt.?
      Do you really think the department of energy is doing anything but spending money?
      Do you think it is efficient to send money to the federal government and then have them send some back?
      Everything should be handled by the local and or state government. The only think the federal govt. should handle is national security and then only with collective agreement with the states.

    Hammers help build houses, knives cut fruit and vegetables, hands and feet carry one around to navigate life, these are in no way comparable to guns because they have to be taken out of their context and to be turned into a weapon. A gun is a weapon to begin with. In addition, technology in guns and weaponry is outpacing any logical argument for it being a tool… but fine I’ll give that to you, it’s a tool … a tool with one aim… death. Death and harm are the only goals of a gun. As long as everyone has a gun, no one is safe.
    If I was talking with you face to face, and I knew you had a gun on your person, I probably wouldn’t have said what I just said, because I would be afraid of pissing you off and that you’d fly off the handle and shoot me. Is that freedom? I don’t appreciate the 2nd Amendment intimidating the 1st Amendment.

      It’s the 2nd Amendment that protects your 1st Amendment; so, start carrying so you won’t be afraid to speak.

    • hunter by birth

      February 26, 2013 at 10:21 PM

      The illogical argument is that guns are only used for violence. Guns are as much a tool as many other things. I travel for work I carry a gun for personal protection. At home I use guns to provide food for my family. Yes I can go to the store and buy meat but I prefer natural venison, turkey and small game to hormone injected beef, pork and chicken. One of the guns I use is a small caliber semi automatic that holds 16 cartridges. It will fire as fast as I can pull the trigger. A revolver will shot as fast as you can pull the trigger and reload in seconds. One trigger pull = one shot. All guns with the exception of fully automatic weapons will do it. Full auto firearms take a different license which are much harder for private citizens to obtain. The concept that a smaller capacity magazine and bans on semi automatic weapons will stop criminals is and ignorant concept. There’s no difference in having several magazines that hold 9 cartridges each and reload in a matter of a couple of seconds and a 30 round magazine. A limit on capacity or semi automatic will do nothing except impose more governmental regulation and control of law abiding american citizens. As far as the second amendment intimidating the first amendment you shouldn’t worry about that, read H.R.347. It restricts your rights to protest in official buildings or grounds or proximity to such areas. Including official functions. If your worried about your first amendment rights don’t go to a campaign function or town hall meeting where federal politicians are featured and try to speak your mind. You could become a felon for doing so. Gun control is not about crime control. Look at Chicago, it has some of the strictest gun laws on record and yet they have one of the highest gun violence rates in the country. Latest example of such is the young girl that was shot just days after being at the presidential inauguration. That happened in Chicago. I would be willing to bet that it wasn’t a law abiding citizen that pulled the trigger.

But,they can be used in wrong,harmful & destructive ways (fatal) ways.It’s not the thing that is wrong,it is the wrong use of the thing. What we need is, WACKO CONTROL !!!

      Redwood- With over 300m gun in circulation its obvious that the average gun owner doesn’t fly off the handle and go shoot someone every time they disagree or argue with someone so why punish the majority and deny them an unalienable right because of the minority? Lay blame where it belongsI’ve owned guns for over 28 years and have never killed anyone. I’ve had fun shooting my guns at targets and hunting with them but I have never had to even point it at another human. Oh and BTW- Knives weren’t originally designed to cut fruits and vegetables they were for harvesting game and breaking down animals (both fish, bird and land animals) into useful product (food, tools, clothing). Some knives were made out of bone. Our forefathers didn’t live as vegetarians, or go to the grocery store for food. They hunted and harvested what they found naturally or could raise.

      Do you think the end goal should be all guns should be banned? If not who should have guns? Do you know some magical way to get the guns from criminals? Do you know some magical way for poor rural families to put protein on their family’s table? I’d be willing to give my hobby up if everyone turned in their guns, but I don’t trust everyone. There are alot of evil folks out there armed and unarmed and I choose to maintain my God given right to be able to defend my family from them. I will also continue to enjoy target shooting and hunting for enjoyment. Who knows it might be a gun owner who helps save or defend your life if/when someone evil crossed your path….

      Redwood. I am very happy you are so wealthy you can go to Whole Foods and buy all you want to eat.
      I live in the wilderness. I hunt with a “tool” for my food. I do not hunt with a hammer, or knife even though I’m sure you would like to legislate my method to exclude the use of a firearm.

      Good luck on your Darwin Award. Read about ya later…

      I would like to say something to Redwood, I was born in 1941, my father served in the Pacific during WWII, He managed to come back home after his ship was sunk off the Battle of Okinawa. When I was about 8 years old he taught me the rules of gun safety. I received my first gun when I was about 12 years old, it was a single shot 16 gauge Stevens shotgun, I still have it this day. My father took me hunting many times and always stressed gun safety, “a gun is always loaded and never point at anyone”. I have hunted safely for all of these years and truly enjoyed the sports that comes with hunting, never having anything harmful through all of these years. My 12 gauge shotgun is my 3 wood, my 20 gauge shotgun is my pitching wedge, my 300 Winchester Magnum is my driver, my 30-06 is my 4 iron. My guns have a specific purpose for each one just as my golf clubs do. I do not have a concealed pistol permit even though I could legally have one. I support the second amendment and the constitution of the United States. I think that everyone is entitled to their opinion, and their opinions, as well as my own should be respected. If I were talking to you face to face we would engage in friendly conversation and I would respect your views. Violence would not even be thought of. I know that my views on this matter reflect those of all of the good sportsmen that hunt or use firearms for their recreation. It is unfortunate that there are some people that commit atrocious acts with firearms, they need to go to jail and stay there, the real problem is with that small minority’s upbringing, if they were brought up respecting other people’s rights and property and the law, we would not have this problem, I pray that someday that this will happen,
      Sincerely , George from Michigan

      You just stated that if everyone has a gun no one is safe and then you said that if you were talking to someone that you knew had a gun you would not have said what you did. Isn’t it obvious that there will always be guns and if everyone had one we all would be safer.
      Town requires every household to own a gun. There is very little if any gun crime in that town. Guess why!

    • David Taylor

      April 7, 2013 at 12:57 PM

      Redwood you must be a politician to misinterpret the 2nd amendment the way you do. It is not for hunting, it is to protect ourselves from the government or other thieves.
      I would be interested to hear your interpretation of how the taxes are to be paid. Each according to their ability to pay. Dr. Carson has it nailed and so did others until they started listening to the politicians.
      As long as we have the government to upset the balance we will never be free.

      The US Constitution and the Amendments were NOT G-d given. The document was written by people. Please don’t use such ignorant language as that. It takes your argument down to a level you don’t want to go. People make choices about using guns or not. People invented guns. G-d is not in this equation in any real way.

    Good Lord Almighty! No one is talking about us gun owners (I am one) owning guns or not owning guns. No one is talking about the Second Amendment. Commom sense says owning military weapons that work like machine guns is not smart. Be smart; let’s keep our guns…our shotguns and our pistols. If you need 12 shots to kill a deer you should not be in the woods. You want quail or pheasant for you table, your shotgun is the ticket. Ditto deer, and everything else for your table. Save your pistol for bad guys. Get the machine guns out of the home.

    • Adask

      March 5, 2013 at 12:26 PM

      Screw the damn deer. We don’t need guns to deal with deer. We need guns to deal with a government that’s ordered over 1.2 billion rounds of ammunition for domestic “target practice” and 2,700 armored personnel carriers for use within the U.S.. We need guns to deal with a government that has shown us repeatedly that it is bent on the destruction of this nation and its submission to a New World Order. I agree that we don’t belong in the woods if we need 12 shots to kill a deer. But how many shots do you suppose it will take to bring down a cadre of treasonous whores? Whatever your guess is, we’d better triple that number, just to be safe.

    The speech is powerful. Very powerful. The points are very well taken.

    I received a link to this video in an email in which the sender of the email claimed this speech was given to members of congress in a paragraph below the link.
    However, that paragraph below the link is a flat out lie. I know this speech was not given to the audience as pictured – and I doubt it was ever given in any chamber of congress. Who is this man?
    Notice the title of the video is “Virtual State of the Union” – a dead give-away.
    “Virtual President”? Another dead give-away.
    In the opening scene, there are the vice president and the speaker of the house are behind the president. That scene is a state of the union speech – probably Clinton since he has white hair. During the rest of the video, there is no one behind this man.
    And, ‘justice’ Sotomayor is NOT a member of congress and she is pictured in the video. The text claims it was given before congress.

    There are too many clues that this is a ‘patch it’ job on the video to show the expressions of the ‘listeners’.

    It wouldn’t surprise me at all if this speech was never given before either the house or senate – and certainly not before a joint session or a state of the union type session as depicted in the opening few seconds.

    I wish people would quit misrepresentations to get their point across. This man and his supporting group certainly did.

    Yes, we certainly need to get messages like this to all members of congress. But, to misrepresent in a video as if the speech was given before a joint session or a state of the union session is wrong.

      But the Supreme Court has ruled that the police have no enforceable duty to protect the American people. I doubt that the military have any duty to protect the American people. So why would we diminish our right of self-defense by abrogating our right to keep and bear rifles and allow only the police and military to keep and bear assault rifles, if the police and military have no duty to protect us?

      When will people wake up? We’ve had almost 6,000 years of recorded history & they ant woke up. I think we need about 5,000 more years. Can’t expect to learn anything in a mere 6,000 years.Time is the key.
