Here is a concept I want to share with you. All of this talk about gun control is not about protecting the public, its about the law makers being scared. Law makers are scared someone will walk into their building and start shooting. Instead of students laying on the ground dead, lawmakers envision themselves being dead.
If law makers truly cared about the health and well being of the public, why is smoking still legal? Why can companies dump chemicals and nothing is done?
If law makers cared about the public, why are fish contaminated with mercury?
Gun control is not about protecting the public. If the government wanted to protect the public, outlaw cigarettes and other tobacco products. Outlaw chemicals that have been linked to attention disorders in children.
Gun control is about protecting congress from people who are fed up with government.
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. People are fed up with high taxes, people are fed up with the government bailing out the banks, people are fed up with the government protecting wall street,,,, people are fed up.
Instead of worrying about gun control, maybe congress needs to stop bailing out wall street. That way law makers will not have a guilty conscience.
Armed citizens are the threat to an out of control government. That threat must be neutralized.
