There is little doubt that the Anti-Gun politicians will use last week’s tragedy to come after law-abiding gun owners. In fact, a number of politicians have already started to lay the framework for a coming ban on so-called assault weapons.
Over the weekend Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) vowed to introduce legislation to ban assault weapons.
“I’m going to introduce in the Senate and the same bill will be introduced in the House, a bill to ban assault weapons. It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession. Not retroactively but prospectively. And it will ban the same for big clips, drums or strips of more than 10 bullets. So there will be a bill. We’ve been working on it now for a year,” Feinstein said on NBC’s “Meet The Press”.
President Uses Tragedy to Justify Taking Away Our Rights
Last night at a memorial to the victims of last week’s tragedy, President Barrack Obama used the event to signal the fact that he was ready to start taking away our freedoms. If you think that’s hyperbole, just look at what the President had to say:
“Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?”
To use this tragedy in a way that suggests taking away any of our freedoms is almost unbelievable. In fact, it sounds a little bit like something a dictator might say.
Our constitution was written for a reason. It was laid out in a way that would prevent our leaders from taking radical actions because of hysteria and popular opinion. Maybe our President needs to hear the words of our founding fathers, and listen to what Ben Franklin had to say about this subject:
“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
What happened in Connecticut is almost beyond comprehension; it’s something that affects every single person who hears the story. How any human being could do something like this to children, is beyond anything that I have the capacity to write about.
What I do know is taking away our guns, our freedoms, or any of our rights will do nothing to prevent future tragedies like this from occurring. As I pointed out earlier this week, we don’t have a gun problem; WE HAVE A CULTURE PROBLEM.
