Yesterday I wrote about government dictating how illegal aliens are going to be legalized by the “Gang of 8” scheme. It matters not to Congress or the regime what We the People or the Constitution say. They will decide how it is going to be and We the People will just have to accept it because it is “fair”. Today I write about gun control and how government intends to impose their will on We the People, disregarding the Constitution and the rights of said People. How does fairness and public safety figure into the latest dictates on firearms?
Gun control is being handled exactly the same way they have handled the illegal alien problem. A nut goes out and shoots some people, so they pass laws to stop it from happening again. Except that it happened again because they haven’t enforced the “new” laws they passed the last time this came up. Gun control has been such a raging success everywhere it has been tried hasn’t it? Gang violence with firearms is rampant in the major gun free zones in our nation. Sen. Ted Cruz recently gave out 2010 figures that show 15,700 attempts by criminals to legally access firearms, in one year: 2010. They were caught by the background check system in effect right now. The Obama regime has prosecuted 44. Clintonesque isn’t it???
So, the Obama regime prosecuted just 44 out of 15,700 background check cases that the current law caught, in one year, and we need more restrictions on firearms??? You have got to be kidding me, AGAIN!! Chicago is a stellar case for gun free zones. Is it fair that Chicago’s “gun free zone” is more dangerous to poor black children than Afghanistan is to our soldiers? And the gun free Mecca of Washington D. C. (De Cesspool) is right on Chicago’s heels.
Is it fair to the law abiding citizen who reads the Constitution and sees “shall not be infringed” being infringed by both political parties; “for our own well-being and safety”, of course? Is it fair to the homeowner who hears a group of armed thugs kicking in his door or smashing a window to rob the home in the middle of the night? The old saying goes, “when seconds count the police are minutes away”!!! That is not a slap at the police by any stretch. I salute their dedication and understand their frustration at arresting criminals, only to see the same criminals walking the street before the ink is dry on the arrest report.
Is it fair to the 6 year old murdered in a Chicago gang shooting because she happened to be sitting on the front steps with her sister??? Is it fair to the family that loses a child who has nothing to do with gangs but can neither move out of the neighborhood nor possess a firearm to defend themselves from the gang member? You know, the gang member who has been arrested a dozen times for gun law violations but is out on bail or parole; the same gang member who finds a full automatic weapon that no law abiding citizen will ever possess??? And he didn’t buy it through any “gun show loophole”!!!
So, do they really need to pass “new” restrictions on the 2nd Amendment to solve the problems that have been created by not enforcing the “new” restrictions they passed the last time this came up? “Pass something quick and we can fill in the details later” is the order of the day in government. Kind of like “we have to pass it so we can find out what is in it”, isn’t it??
Is anyone seeing a pattern here? There is a problem, any problem; illegal aliens, poverty, murder, gang violence, drug trafficking, terrorism, etc. The problem has been addressed countless times in the past and new laws and regulations have been passed but not enforced each time, not enforced because those laws will be “unfair” to those breaking the law. The answer of politicians is always more control over those who actually follow the laws. Everyone knows, and politicians admit, that absolutely nothing in the current crop of new legislation would do anything to solve the problem of gun violence, or prevent another Sandy Hook from happening.
These last two articles are but two examples of many that show a total disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law, and the well-being and liberty of We the People. The politicians and the bureaucrats spend all of their time thinking up ways to further restrict the rights of citizens when they should be focusing on enforcing the last set of “new” laws, rules, and regulations they passed. They admit the new laws won’t matter, yet demand that those of us who do obey the law give up our rights anyway. They need to pass this idea for a possible outline quick before anyone can look at it. “We have to pass it so we can find out what is in it”, AGAIN!!!
The political class is destroying our nation. They never fix anything!!! They continually put restrictions on what legal citizens can do without so much as a thought of what the Constitution provides for. That “old and outdated” document means nothing to either political party.
There are a few in the Senate and a few in the House who are fighting the establishments of both parties on behalf of We the People. They are being beaten down by those who control both political parties and their minions in the media. The People’s voices are not welcomed by Republicans or Democrats. They know best and will “debate and tell us where they stand”. From my reading and studying of the Constitution I thought they were supposed to decide based on the Constitution first and the will of We the People second.
Now on the heels of Boston they want to force background checks before We the People can buy gunpowder, pressure cookers, and ham hocks!!!!! Never mind that the entire problem is Muslim murderers who have no conscience, and their government enablers who “never let a good crisis go to waste”. There isn’t any sense in securing our borders or deporting known terrorist sympathizers!!! The only thing that makes sense to those dictators in Washington is to further restrict the liberty of decent law abiding citizens.
They have their dictatorial oligarchy established and will not turn loose of it easily. The statists who control both parties are seeing We the People stand up to their treachery and they don’t like it. They want to get things jammed through as quickly as possible, knowing that time is not on their side. We the people are fed up, standing up, and demanding they govern by the Constitution first and the will of the people second. The disarming of We the People and the arming of DHS is government saying; ”NO We will NOT obey the Constitution, YOU will obey us“!!!!!
I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
