We should ban spoons, no wait, we should limit the size of spoons, to ensure we cut down on deaths from obesity.
We should do universal background checks before a motor vehicle purchase.
We should make Smack, Crack, and Meth illegal. Oh wait.
Laws will be passed, bans and limits may be put into place, no significant change will take place because the people committing gun violence and mass shootings don’t care about the Laws, Limits, and Bans.
The only thing that these things will do is chip away at our (all of us) constitutional rights.
Some may be willing to give up your rights(reasons vary) I’m not willing, won’t ever be willing.
All of our rights are important to me, I’d stand up for any of them just as I do the 2nd amendment rights.
No minds have been changed here, to the best of my knowledge none were changed with any of the previous similar threads.
Funny thing about all of this is, I haven’t heard even one good reason not to own a gun if able by law to do so.
I’m sure someone will say “don’t need one”, “waste of money” etc.
Fact is, you already own things you “don’t need” and a good quality reliable “gun” can be had for the price of a nice dinner and night on the town, cheaper if purchased used.
It’s all a matter of perspective but it still baffles me.
A gun is a simple tool that is much better to have and never need, than it is to need and not have. If you’re so confident that you’ll never need one, more power to you, I’m truly impressed and happy for you. You are either a “bad mofo”, or you’ve never seen what can actually happen to people that don’t have the skills and tools to defend themselves against violence.
Maybe your a vegetarian and don’t need to be concerned with feeding your family in the event of a catastrophe.
There’s just so many reasons to own a gun, no real good ones not to.
I can’t imagine seeing the look in a loved ones eyes when they truly needed help, and I could do nothing because I was defenseless in that situation.
Maybe it’s because I’ve seen the aftermath of violence too many times, and had to clean up the mess.
Maybe it’s because I grew up in “Spokane” and have been hanging out with “Texans”, IDK.
What I do know is this, I will never (by choice) be caught defenseless against violence aimed at myself or those that I care about.
I will never be in a situation that I can’t help myself and those I care about should we ever find ourselves in a SHTF scenario.
To those that would try to take my rights away either by direct attack or by ignorant cooperation, I will oppose you with vigor, I will fight until there is no fight left within me. I will do so for myself, my loved ones, and those unaware that they need me to.
I will continue to support the NRA with my annual membership because even though I don’t agree with or condone all of their methods, they are the loudest/strongest ally I have.
carry on, love all y’all.
