I get that those that cry for Gun Control are scared. They are scared of guns. Guns kill people in their minds. It seems like every day some shooting is taking place-it’s the Wild Wild West! Or at least the media has sensationalized it to feel this way. Innocent people are dying and gun control would prevent or at least limit this -are the thoughts of many on the other side of the aisle.
My question is what gun control?
The Shooter in the Sutherland Springs cleared a background check because the Air Force neglected to enter his dishonorable discharge and Domestic Abuse record into the data base -which would have prevented him from getting a gun. A Failed process is what allowed the shooter to get a gun. This shooter also escaped a Mental Institution in 2012 where he had been sent after he was court-martialled for assaulting his ex-wife and stepson during his time in the US Air Force. He was an Atheist who hated Christians as well…..a deeply troubled individual at the very least.
I have heard the other side say “no one needs and AR-15,” well that’s exactly what Stephen Willeford needed, when he shot the Sutherland Springs shooter. A hand-gun would have been a much more challenging pick, when preciseness was needed to pierce in between the body armor of the assailant in the midst of the chaos.
I think if Liberal Legislators were REALLY honest-they don’t want gun control, they want to ban guns. They want Australia-like confiscation here in America. I mean if we were to be really honest. Yet, no Liberal legislator will step forward with a proposal to ban guns because their career in politics would end.
That’s what happened when Colorado State Senators Angela Giron of Pueblo and John Morse of Colorado Springs voted in 2013, to enforce strict gun laws in Colorado-they were recalled! Why? Because the majority of Americans love America-we are not Australia! We believe in our Constitution that was put in place to limit Government overreach and chipping away at our Constitution doesn’t bode well with Americans.
So what we are really witnessing is a lot of theatrics.
If some form of gun control was passed by Congress many would “feel” better, but the problem would not solved.
I want to solve the problem.
Banning an object doesn’t solve the problem.
We have to look deeper. We have to look at our society.
We don’t value human life. If we did, we wouldn’t be allowing for the murder of life in the womb.
We stigmatize the mentally ill. They feel trapped, tormented and alone. We call for gun control but where is the legislation on helping the mentally ill?
We treat psychological sickness with prescription drugs, with no deeper research into how these drugs affect the psyche.
We have a nation full of adolescents playing violent video games that suggest death is not permanent.
We spend millions watching movies that glorify violence.
And worst of all, we are a culture that has removed God from our society. Even if you do not believe in God…..-God is love and we have removed love. Love is a verb. It is action. It speaks truth, convicts and heals.
If we want to solve mass shootings, we have to be a society that values life. We have to be a society that speaks truth. We have to be a society that calls out evil instead of tip toeing around it. We have to be a society that focuses once again on God. And we have to be a society that is determined to raise the generation behind us to do the same.
*Below I address banning guns without mentioning “guns”….to expose that this would not solve the real problem our society faces.

All the ills of society can be be cured if “we” all get together and ban “people”, it is a people problem, let the animals be free of the manimals. I vote to be last in line.
The best gun control policy would be to ban guns from being in the hands of democrats! I feel they should be required to posr a no guns allowed on their front door so unlawful citizens can know where it is safe to loot.
“A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” “When any government mistrusts its citizens with guns, it is sending a clear message. It no longer trusts its citizens because such a has evil plans.” – George Washington “To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens” – Adolph Hitler
My touch pad removes words whenever I brush against it, and it removed the word government…Here is a corrected re-post…..

Look up false flag operations
Whenever government wants to grow its oppressive power, or strip the people of their privacy, rights, and freedoms, it creates a false flag operation, to justify what they want, and to convince the people they need to go along with it, or even get the people to demand it. When the people trade their privacy, rights, or freedoms for this false promise of safety, they end up losing everything, and are no more safe than they were before. This is one method those on power have used throughout history, and the government (both visible and shadow government) uses false flags today.
Awesome Article! Would you agree however that the act of restricting guns will open the doors to more guns being banned in the future, which would be violating the 2nd amendment?
