And meanwhile in Utah, some extremist members of our legislature is arguing over
whether or not people should be allowed to "open carry" weapons into
malls.There is even a hullaballoo when someone sees a gun toting
person in public and calls police.While the ever patriotic and
paranoid NRA is pushing for such insane things as "Stand Your Ground"
and is even advocating the "right" of loyal Americans to shoot at cops
if they believe the police have overstepped their Constitutional boundaries. To
make that even easier, they cry bloody murder over any proposal to limit sales
of assault weapons of mass destruction.Stand Your Ground tells
people they may start shooting "if they feel threatened." Perhaps this
guy was threatened by a little lady with an ice cream cone that could have been
used as a weapon against him.Mass shooters like this one are not the
only insane people in this country . . .
Daily we read and hear of individuals, extreme groups, governments, countries
who now resolve their disputes with guns and violence.Society will have to
decide how it shall deal with this as it is becoming something that has grown to
be totally out of control in our "proper, educated society".Chances are the emotional, genetic, personality of traditional man will never
change. Man's insatiable appetite for power creates war, which equates with
his desperate thirst for guns and like deadly weapons.
@one old manI'm no gun fanatic - I've never owned a gun
and never will. But I'm pretty sure mass shooters like this kid in Oregon
don't care whether there's an open carry law or not. I doubt any
homicidal maniac is ever going to say "I was planning on shooting up the
mall, but then I saw the 'no firearms allowed' sign on the door so I
@old man,You're really onto something there.While
we're at it, why dont we make it a law that makes it illegal for criminals
to blow up planes?Let's also make it a law that you can't
kidnap children.Old man, you should get Obama on the phone, and
quick! He's got to hear these great ideas of yours, beore its too late
Don't get all excited, folks. I'm not advocating an end to the Second
Amendment -- just some common sense.
Maybe they should ban guns in shopping malls. Like they did at
Trolley Square, which was in place BEFORE the mass killings there? Hmmm, that
did not seem to work very well, did it.It's not the guns,
it's the criminals, and crazies, and certainly some terrorists too.Remember, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away. While
you are waiting, you are responsible for your own safety. A cell phone is nice,
but a legal self defense weapon may save your life. Your life, and your choice.
I won't criticize you for which you choose, and ask that you do the same.
That is sad to think that such things happen because of insane people. I make
sue to keep my windows tinted to make sure if someone driving next to me decides
to shoot, he can't am at my kid.
