If we want to stop mass shootings…..

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.

Let’s talk about guns…shall we…

Tonight President Obama is set to address the nation on our national security. This will consist of him saying “we are all fine and not to worry.” I mean he told us that “ISIS was contained” just hours before Paris was attacked and days before the most deadliest terror attack on US soil (San Bernardino) since 9/11, Obama told us that there was “No specific and credible intelligence indicating a plot on the homeland.” Anyways….he’s going to tell us to calm down and that we are all fine….then I predict his narrative changes…..

Instead of addressing the fascist radicalized ideology of Islamic terror that is rapidly growing like an unconstrained cancer – Obama will talk about gun control.

Yep! That’s right…..because in his world it’s guns that kill people, not people who kill people. He will try to push Executive orders on gun measures to be taken, all the while -telling the American people it’s for our ‘own good.’ He’ll try to go around Congress and like I have said time and time again those in Congress are our voice….but with the wielding of his pen he will silence the majority and compromise our 2nd Amendment. The 2nd Amendment was not put in place so that we could hunt or for recreational purposes- it was put in place so that we the people -may protect ourselves from those who wish to do us harm and also from an overreaching tyrannical government.

*Historically -governments that were corrupt and tyrannical-initially disarmed their populous.

“Oh but Obama just wants to put in play some precautionary measures to protect us” -one might say. FYI the guns obtained by the shooters in San Bernardino were obtained legally. California has some of the most stringent gun restrictions in the country- it’s not easy at all to get a gun there-and yet these crazies were able to get them. So to imply anything short of total gun confiscation, these nut jobs would still have been able to get guns. The San Bernardino shooters were also able to obtain over a dozen pipe bomb-style devices and hundreds of tools that law enforcement said could be used to build “improvised explosive devices” (IEDs). I guess if we make bombs illegal people will stop making them…….(sarcasm a whole heaping ton of sarcasm!)

No matter what restrictions- laws and so forth are put in play- it’s not going to stop bad people from doing bad things. These restrictions will only stop good people from stopping bad guys who want to to bad things.

I was back home visiting my family on December 7th, 2007 in Colorado Springs and had just left a New Life Church service. When I returned home to my parents house, I was told to turn on the news -there was a gunman at the church where I had just left! He entered the church the same entrance my family and I had used. This gunman walked into the building opened fire killing two people and injured three more before he was shot and wounded by a member of our church’s congregation- who was conceal and carrying. The shooter was well armed and ready to kill many more but was stopped by an ARMED CITIZEN!

Friends of mine life’s were spared that day because of a gun! I have had arguments with those terrified of guns. Wanting all guns removed from our society-but if that were to happen, perhaps hundreds more would have died that Sunday morning on December 7th-but you see, A GUN stopped the violence.

Paris has strict gun laws, Chicago has strict gun laws, Norway has strict gun laws….. Below are examples of some mass shootings that have occurred in other countries with very stringent gun regulation:

“• On July 22, 2011, a total of 80 people were killed in Norway when Anders Behring Breivik, a political extremist, bombed a government building in Oslo and then went on a shooting rampage on the island of Utoya, just outside the city.

• On March 11, 2009, in Winnenden, Germany, a teenage gunman killed 15 people. The majority of the victims were children and teachers killed when the shooter opened fire in three classrooms in a local secondary school. The gunman shot two other people before killing himself after being cornered by the local police.

• On Sept. 23, 2008, in Kuahajoki, Finland, a gunman shot 10 people to death after opening fire on a classroom in the Kuahajoki School of Hospitality. After killing the students, the shooter burned the victims’ bodies.” –Politifact.com

But our media sources don’t talk about these cases. Instead of focusing on mental illness, radicalized ideology, and terror -which ARE the root causes- our media focuses on the insistence of disarming Americans Citizens so that they cannot protect themselves if they were to find themselves in a mass shooting. They’d rather see citizens be sitting ducks…waiting with crossed fingers for help to arrive while innocent lives are taken.

With our immigration laws pretty much non-existent, we have no idea who is entering our country and what their intentions are. If ever there was a time to be armed, to be knowledgeable on guns, and gun safety -it is now!

Now sit back and watch tonight, as our President twists the narrative to implement gun control…..and ask yourself……..why?

“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.”
