Charles Ramsey could have just walked away. Instead, he kicked the door in and became a hero.

I used to respect wired as a credible source of information, that was until I read an article about controlling ammunition to reduce gun violence. The logical of controlling ammunition to reduce gun violence, is like saying we can stop drunk drivers by reducing the amount of gasoline on the market.
Once again lets just ignore the root cause of the majority of gun violence, and that is criminals and drugs. Law abiding citizens do not use gun in crimes, that is the reason why people who use guns during a crime are called criminals.
If the government truly wanted to do something about gun violence, fix the broken criminal justice system, stop the flow of drugs into the US and break up gangs. What do the majority of gun related deaths have in common? They are either drug of gang related.
Broken Justice System
Our criminal justice system does not reform people. Prisons are nothing more then a warehouse for the mentally ill. Someone would have to be mentally ill to inflict violence upon others.
Example of anti-gun propaganda.
What about the gun control acts of 1934 and 1968? Do the people who make this type of video have any first hand experience with firearms?
Lets place the blame where it belongs, on the mentally ill people who kill others.
Ted Bundy did not use a gun.
Jeffrey Dahmer did not use a gun.
Jim Jones did not use a gun.
But for some reason more gun laws will fix crime?
If regulations fixed problems, why are drugs on our streets?
Hey, I have an idea, lets outlaw crack. How about bath salts? Lets outlaw them as well.
There is an article on Foxnews that describes how stupid lawmakers are – States, cities mulling own assault-weapon bans, amid doubt over federal action.
The problem is not the guns, the root cause of the issue is mentally ill people and a broke legal system.
Someone walks into a movie theater and starts shooting, someone walks into a school and starts shooting, someone kidnaps a child skins and eats the child,,,, the person has to be mentally ill to act in that manner. Sane people do not inflict violence upon others.
Why do law makers think passing more gun laws will fix the issue?
The real issue, and the root of the problem, is a broken legal system that can not keep mentally defective people off the streets.
If someone shows violent tendencies, or otherwise acts in a manner that is disruptive to the general public, that person is free to roam the streets until they break the law. Even if the defective person breaks the law, unless it was some vile act, chances are the person will be back on the streets with nothing more then a slap on the wrist.
Anyone here play the game Half-Life 2?
When the guards were chasing gordon freeman, they would say “outbreak” from time to time.
I read somewhere that the guards said “outbreak” because criminals should be treated like a disease. The longer the criminals stayed in the community, the longer they have to spread the infection. The infection being crime.
In the case of the justice being drawn out, the system is being dragged to the knees.
Just as the immune system reacts to clear an infection, so should the justice system act swiftly to remove the infection from society.
The longer the infection stays around, the more damage it does to the system as a whole.
Instead of capturing the infection and destroying it, the legal system releases the infection back into the community to do more damage.
Society can not afford to build more prisons, or sentence people to a lifetime in prison for petty crimes, the only solution is to put the person to death after X number of crimes. Instead of three strikes and your out, it should be three strikes and you are put to death.
Three strikes and put to death might seem a little drastic to a lot of people. But what is society supposed to do to clear the criminal infection from the community? Are we supposed to let career criminals back out on the streets, to commit more crimes?
The problem with the criminal infection of society, is the legal system is a revolving door. Unlike the human immune system that cleans an infection from the body, the legal system allows infections to society to remain, spread and build up.
A few months ago there was a murder in Beaumont Texas. Come to find out, the guy who committed the murder had been in prison several times for assault. The key word there is “several times”.
Why do we allow criminals to harm our society? If someone commits 2 or 3 violent crimes, that person should be put to death. This will clear the infection, and society as a whole would be better off.
