Only Idiots Vote For Gun Control

Kevin Felts political commentator

Let’s say someone came to you and asked you to restrict your rights, what would you say?

For the sake of discussion, let’s say they wanted to restrict your right to vote, or your right to a jury trial, or your right to bail, or your right to go to church. What would you say?

The person would use different arguments, but the end result would be the same. Which would be limiting your rights. Letting people out on bail is to dangerous, so let’s keep people in prison until their trial date.

Why would we need a trial by jury? Let’s appoint scientist to look at the evidence and decide a persons fate. With trained professionals there is no need to have attorneys. Just present the evidence and let them decide.

Why Major Media Dropped Arapaho School Shooting

Kevin Felts political commentator

On December 13, 2013 Karl Pierson walked into Arapaho high school, shot one student and then killed himself.

Usually this would have been major news for weeks, with anti-gun advocates coming out of the woodwork like roaches. There should have been renewed calls for gun control with president Obama addressing the nation for the need for tighter restrictions and background checks.

So what makes this school shooting different?

The shooter used a shotgun.

The shooter legally bought the firearm.

Shooter was left leaning communist democrat

A good guy with a gun put a quick end to the violence.

Why Don’t People Address The Real Cause Of Gun Violence

Kevin Felts at the Angelina River

While browsing the net I landed on yet another gun control article. That article, like so many others does not address the root causes of gun violence.

Obama has thrown a fake bone to the gun hating liberal dogs. As they slobber all over it, the liberals are too dumb to realize its a fake bone.

Does the bone address repeat offenders?

Does the bone address gang and drug related crime?

Does the bone address protecting our borders from illegal drugs?

Does the bone address job training for criminals?

Does the bone address anything crime related?

The gun control bone the liberals are slobbering all over addresses nothing.

Background checks, so what? Its not like gang members are going to go through background checks.

Surprised By The Gun Haters

Kevin Felts political commentator

One thing that has surprised me after the Sandy Hook shooting is all of the hatred towards guns. This is not your typical “we need to ban guns” type of hatred that we see after a shooting, this is unbridled hatred.

This is the nazi and the jews type of hatred, pit bull attacks a baby type of hatred,,,,. If those people could, they would take every gun away, and that is absolutely crazy. Crazy that logical people have a knee jerk reaction to a tragic event.

Instead of placing the blame on the root cause of the gun violence issue, gun haters blame the tool. That is like blaming Snap-on for someone drinking and driving.

If the people are not united, can we survive as a nation?

Threat Must Be Neutralized

Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalistHere 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.

My Theory On Why Americans Are So Violent

Overlooking the Angelina River near Jasper, Texas

Here is my theory on why Americans are so violent, and its not that we love violence. When given the chance, most people pick peace and quiet over violence.

If we prefer peace over violence, why do so many people prone to violence?

My opinion, there are two factors that promote violence in our society:

1, The lack of upward mobility.

2, Violence is a learned social behavior.

There is an article on Live Science saying Murder May Spread Like Infectious Disease. That article discusses a couple of important factors, one factor says that murders are more likely to be committed in low income neighborhoods.

If you track murder like a disease, it spreads and burns itself out. But if you look at the tracking on a map, higher income areas have a lower murder rate then lower income areas.
