GUN CONTROL - NOT ACCORDING TO GEORGE WASHINGTON
In fact just as George Washington stated as shown in the graphic to the left, all of our Founders believed in gun rights, an armed citizenry and the ability of Americans to protect themselves with firearms from not just intruders to our homes and properties but also from a government that may seek to rob us of our freedoms.
These are the reasons the Framers of our Constitution included the Second Amendment as one of our foremost rights as Americans. Now the left seeks to weaken that right and as evidenced by Dianne Fienstein's recent anti gun bill introduced in Congress seeking to as she puts it, "dry up," guns while claiming to support the Second Amendment.
All legislation does in force law abiding gun owners to be penalized for exercising their Second Amendment rights without having ANY impact on the criminal use of guns. That too is evidenced by the City of Chicago that has the most strict gun control laws in the country AND the highest gun related crime in the country. Excessive gun control laws have proven time and again to INCREASE gun related crime rather than slow it or eliminate it. Every country that has strict gun control laws have MUCH higher gun related crime than The United States. Yet the idiots on the left refuse to look at the evidence and ONLY seek to blame the gun rather than the evil maniac who pulls the trigger. The same maniac that will still find a way to get a gun to do the crime no matter how strict gun control laws become. These laws do nothing more than take away the guns that protect honest law abiding citizens preventing them from stopping the criminals who use illegal means to take life and kill unprotected citizens.
I stand by an earlier statement in reference to the tragic shooting of children and teachers as Sandy Hook elementary school. If ONE teacher had been armed the lunatic would have been dead BEFORE he could kill children. Yet in ALL of the Executive Orders issued by Obama, the recommendations by Biden and the legislation presented by leftists like Fienstien, the one and ONLY thing that could have prevented Sandy Hook, an armed teacher or staff member is not even being considered. They are not looking to prevent this from happening in the future but ONLY to take away more of our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
