Gun control and crime...

How about eliminating rape by outlawing fornication. Sounds about the same logic as what the gun grabbers have. How about ending poverty, ignorance, laziness, entitlement mentality, poor healthcare availability to the US citizen because of greed, how about starting there. The idea of making more rules & laws and throwing more money at something has proven to NOT work yet they keep doing it. The democrats have become the anti-American party with their pandering to certain groups and lack of respect for the Constitution which they think is a outdated rag.

The more I read the Constitution, the more I read the words of the founding fathers and apply it to past civilizations, the world of their time and our world right now the more I see how right they were. They had intelligence and common sense that is lacking in our government today. The founding fathers had the foresight and forethought to use words to insure our freedom then and in the future. They knew what greedy corrupt schemers are capable of and that their goal is to enslave humanity any way they can. They knew as long as a society has a way to protect themselves those oligarchs cannot enslave the people of the United States of America.

Yet so many are ignorant of our rights and the reasoning for it. Shall not be infringed was there for a reason. They lived under the boot of the British Empire and knew the only way to make sure it never happened again to their future generations was to insure their freedoms. A free people have the right and duty to protect those freedoms any way they can. Unarmed they cannot, armed they have a fighting chance.

Excellent commentary. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

When I was a kid the mantra of the Left was "always question authority". Today the Left are the authority and they very much dislike being questioned. Funny how things have changed.

Who would have thought the the government supporting Right would be the ones to become disillusioned and pull away? The True Right still supports what the government should be... For the people and following the Constitution...

I think we are seriously lost, my friend.

You take care.

Excellent comment Anon. You are spot on regarding the founders. While much of their common sense approach and built in fail-safes when writing the Constitution is very relevant today, we have to keep in mind the context and definitions of the time in which they lived. The founders idea of a man fit to hold the office of the senate, congress, or president was to be a "gentleman". At that time part of being a gentleman was being "self-made" or a man who had ALREADY established his station in life. Unlike today where men and women run for office as a job, those men viewed holding office as a duty, self-sacrifice, and with little or no pay.This is not to say that corruption or mercenary designs did not exist, but what little there were pales in comparison to the POS we have in the district of criminals today. Presently, much like the POTUS, it seems as if the goal of people running for office is to see how they can gain from holding said office and have a full-time job. We have to many PIGS (People In Government Service) who have made careers by "feeding at the .gov trough". Of course we cannot forget that only men voted and one had to own property for to do that. Neither were there entitlements, hand-outs, or other carrots on sticks enticing low information voters to vote a particular way. We have given too much of what made America great "away" so to speak. Regarding the gun statistics, I wonder what percentage of "gun crimes" are committed by Mexican and black perps. I know in Birmingham (and most major metro areas) black on black murders/violence is rampant as is gang-related crime. Still, the fact remains that guns are not the problem. It is the commies who want to take them telling these big lies to turn public support against them and ultimately confiscate them. Resist this by any means necessary. Without the 2A America would go the route of many peoples and nations who were exterminated because their views were not those of the armed regime.
