Perhaps you are a supporter of the Second Amendment, and do have much a problem with our citizens owning guns – or perhaps you are tired of listening to the TV scaring you about gun violence, and just wish all hand guns in the US would go away. It’s hard to believe that I or anyone else can convince you of the other perspective, most everyone seems to side with one side or the other, and some perhaps have caveats to their middle of the road “gray area” view of it all. Something like; All Law Abiding Citizens In A Good State Of Mind Should Have The Right to Own A Gun. Okay so, let’s talk about this debate for a moment shall we?
If you search the second amendment on Google you are liable to get something like this from the Cornell Law Library: ” The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: ‘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.” Such language has created considerable debate regarding the Amendment’s intended scope.”
Now then, what if a gun is not detectable by airport security, metal detectors at government buildings, etc.? Should it still be allowed? Some say no, because people could take guns into big events, stadiums, and schools undetected. Yes, maybe so, but they might soon be met with someone else who had if they try anything, which is another debating point on the pro-gun side of things.
The New York Times had an interesting article published on November 28, 2013 titled; “Law Limiting Plastic Guns Set to Expire,” by Jeremy W. Peters and Michael S. Schmidt and it reminded us of a Hollywood Movie “In the Line of Fire” about the Secret Service trying to deal with an assassin trying to get an American President. Still, I have a question for this fear of plastic guns, namely;
Why is everyone so paranoid?
We should be allowed guns of any type, the government isn’t to make any laws restricting gun ownership, that’s what the Constitution says – the government is paranoid, and wants to protect itself from the people – but why, the government is supposed to be the people – one and the same – and if it were to remain such, there wouldn’t be a problem – the problem is power greedy people trying to harness the strength and wealth of the nation for their own dishonorable accords you see? Philosophically speaking any fourth grader gets it, why can’t our leadership?
Why does OUR government want to take away OUR guns, maybe there are factions in OUR government that doesn’t want it to be OURS anymore, they want to make it theirs and in that case, perhaps we ought to not have any more this attack on our Constitutional Rights. What is the government afraid of? It appears they want to have complete control but to do that they must get us to Fear, they must get us to fear them. Again this is only philosophy, and the entire dialogue is based on a question of why? Think on this.
