Admittedly, this post is inspired because I got a bit miffed that @vexations dissed my latest crush, Kevin Tully. Oh, Kevin is a veteran speaking on the second amendment in a meeting on gun control in Chicago. Here he is, and yes; he is delicious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvWRZGtp860
Typically, I try to avoid politics over here, but there are a few naughty people (@mtngirlsouth, @saturnnights, @soccerdadforlife, @DistrictofCalamity and @blonde_apocalypse) that tend to pull me to my passion.
This post shall be political. If that scares you; don’t let the door hit yer ass on the way out. Now, then, shall we begin?
Amendment 2: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Oh, the ratified version, in all of its complexity, still has the exact same wording, but without the commas. Oh the ratified version in all of its complexity still has the exact same wording but without the commas.
Well, then, I suppose the argument is that we need gun control to “save the children”. Now it’s time to delve into numbers (things which I dread more than trying to figure out computer thingys, but things that must be brought out into the open, nonetheless.)
Deaths by school shootings: (adults and children) roughly 100 over the past 20 years. Deaths by child abuse/neglect: (children) 1800 per year. Reckon we aught to ban the man, huh?
Shit, I know I suck at math, but them thar figures are kinda makin some sense to me. But wait! There’s more! (Tonight’s a 2-for-1 special, after all!) 333,964. That’s a big number, right? It is murdered children that we (the worker bees) shall now fund. Ya wanna know the biggest problem with abortion? A little “zygote” is denied his/her unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That’s from the document that preceded the constitution. The founders weren’t dumb. Hell, I’d be dating Sam if I lived in the 18th century:
Simply put, laws for gun control are a power play. Should you like to see the gun crime statistics of states with strict gun rules as opposed to those without? It is very telling. Here’s a fun pic.:
Now how’s bout some more numbers? We need only to look at the numbers in the UK. New data out from the UK, where guns are banned, shows gun crime has soared by 35 percent. Meanwhile in the United States, as more and more people own guns, the rate of violent crime has gone down.
Look; the second amendment was specifically placed as one of the most important amendments (Top 5, baby) because it indeed was designed to guard against tyranny.
Oh. Wait. We’re in America. That couldn’t happen here, right? Is that what ya say?
For your viewing pleasure, may I present another Executive Order (see why you would so love me as your queen?)……..
Hey, what a coincidence; Hitler had a Homeland Security, too! Oh, and he also had gun control……which led to confiscation……..which then led to Gingerbread boys and girls….
A lil more history for ya:
Could never happen here, though, right? Hmmm..... read the non-stream main media news much?
Vexation; it is not guns, but the moral decay of society that is the crux of these incidents. We mustn’t forfeit our constitutional rights for they are based on natural law. Personally, it would be very much like losing my life, and to be quite frank, I’m a bit fond of it.
I shall leave you with a quote that I’m also quite fond of: For the Lord is our judge (Judicial branch), the Lord is our lawgiver (Legislative branch), the Lord is our king (Executive branch) He will save us.
The quote was one of the inspirations for the founding fathers. Oh, it’s Isaiah 33:22 from the Bible. Do not forget the First Commandment (there’s a reason that it’s first): I am the Lord your God. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol......especially an American Idol. (I added that last bit.)

Confession: I have a huge crush on @grim_truth.........shhhhh!
