Define Common Sense Gun Control

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

The bodies of children from the Parkland shooting are not even cold, and gun grabbers are out in force.

Gun grabbing Socialist Democrats are throwing the ever popular buzz words, “Common sense gun control” around as if the words were candy.

Someone explain “exactly” what common sense gun control is.

  • Background checks – in effect since the 1990s.
  • Family violence offenders – check.
  • Felons prohibited from owning a gun – check.
  • People with a history of mental illness – check.

Someone explain where we need more gun control, much less “common sense” gun control.

Gun owners have given up our rights since the 1930s. Those rights were further eroded by the Federal Firearms Act of 1968. Then there was the Brady Bill.

Exactly and to the point, what laws would have prevented the Parkland, Florida school shooting?

Parkland School Shooting And Problems With Society

Kevin Felts political commentator

Another day, another mass school shooting. This time the shooting was at a school in Parkland, Florida. There will be a group of people who blame the gun and ignore the underlying issues with society. Was the gun an issue in the shooting? The gun is no more of an issue than a spoon makes people fat.

Something has gone terrible wrong in society. What is making people, especially young people, turn to violence? Not just turn to violence, but to shoot up a school of defenseless children. We as a culture need to sit down and address the underlying issue.

People are supposed to have this thing called a “conscience” that is supposed to keep us in check. We are supposed to think about how our actions will affect those around us. We all have bad thoughts, such as beating the crap out of someone who wronged us. Regardless of the bad thoughts, our conscience is supposed to keep us on the straight and narrow.

The Harvey Weinstein Paradox

What if I told you the acts Harvey Weinstein is accused of are acceptable under the liberal agenda? Liberal socialist democrats exploit certain groups to promote an agenda. Their favorite group to exploit are children, especially dead children. Their next favorite group to exploit are minorities. Children and minorities are favorite targets of predators and liberals alike.

If liberals exploit children and minorities to promote their agenda, what is wrong with someone using their power and influence to get what they want? According to the liberal philosophy of tolerance, there should be nothing wrong with it.

The difference between children and adults, adults can speak up, while dead children can not, and minorities usually remain silent.

2017 Was A Wild Ride

One thing is for sure, 2017 was one for the history books. Not only was Donald Trump sworn in, but we also got to see the true side of the liberal left agenda.

2017 laid bare how divided the United States really is. There is no longer a peaceful transfer of power. People in powerful places play politics in an attempt to undermine the Republic. After President Trump moved into the White house, there was leak, after leak, after leak… Never in the history of the United States have the people seen such contempt for the president.

When Trump was elected president, the liberal left went into full meltdown. And to think Trump was mocked for his answer when asked, “If he would accept the election results.” Funny how things work themselves out. In the end, it was the Socialist Democrats who refused to accept the results.

Then there were the natural disasters and mass shootings that rocked 2017.

Dianne Feinstein To Introduce Assault Weapons Ban

Obama won California during the election, and now Dianne Feinstein is going to introduce new gun control legislation.

“I’m going to introduce in the Senate, and the same bill will be introduced in the House — a bill to ban assault weapons,” Feinstein said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession, not retroactively, but prospectively,” and ban the sale of clips of more than ten bullets, Feinstein said. “The purpose of this bill is to get… weapons of war off the streets.”

In other words, the many will have to pay for the crimes of the few.

Asking A Controversial Question

A few days ago I asked a question to the SurvivalistBoards facebook page.

The question is as follows,

“Is it just me, but are most of the mass shootings happening in liberal states?”

To my amazement, I received a couple of hate messages about the question

Since when is it wrong to ask a question?

My opinion, liberalism breeds a sense of entitlement. When someone does not get what they think they are “entitled” to, sometimes they turn to violence.

Texas is a conservative state, and we have had a couple of mass shootings.

Why do some states have shootings, while other states seem to be immune?

One message referred to me having a “us versus them” mindset.

Uh, yea, if someone has a sense of entitlement that liberalism breeds, it is the tax payers against the welfare parasites.

It is those that would harm society, against those that try to follow the law.
