The Left-wing government wants to go after everything, everything, including all your guns, rifles, shotguns, hand guns, ... sodas, chips, ... candy cigarettes, in spite of the fact that the majority of Americans are against these actions.
In January, Senator Feinstein will introduce a bill to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition feeding devises.
Under her bill, countless standard handguns apparently would now be banned, and for the first time a federal register that may include many millions of gun owners, fingerprinted and photographed, would be created. Via Drudge:
FEINSTEIN BILL WILL REQUIRE 'GRANDFATHERED WEAPONS BE REGISTERED'; CALLS FOR OWNERS TO BE FINGERPRINTED...
Police departments are considering how to confiscate weapons in the event of a ban.
In countries where guns have been banned people are still not safe. They are attacked with knives, forks, meat cleavers, ... should those be banned also?
Teachers are not necessarily against being armed in classrooms.
This is all a form of terrorism inflicted on the average man by the ruling class (Mark Styen on Rush LImbaugh yesterday)
In the real world, where you and I live, guns actually stop crimes.
Sultan Knish in his article Madmen and Crowds notes:
There was a temporary interval in American life when a shooting spree by a madman would have been viewed as the crime of one man. The dead would have been mourned. The killer, if he had been taken alive, would have been punished, and while the memorial might have been accompanied by some leading sermons, the country would have been spared the media exploitation and blame-a-thon that invariably follows such events.
The trouble is that there are no more individuals. Or rather the
individual is no longer recognized as having any standing. "All private
plans, all private lives, have been in a sense repealed by an overriding
public danger," Roosevelt declared in 1940 to the Democratic National
Convention And the repeal never seems to have been repealed. Instead
all private plans and private lives are being constantly repealed by a
turmoil of overriding public dangers, most of them sociological in
A shooting takes place and the media urges that millions of firearms be confiscated. Every crisis requires that more freedoms be sacrificed for that overriding public danger that the talking heads are screaming about this week over news feeds from every corner of the globe. There are no more private lives. Only public ones. Everyone will sooner or later pass before the camera and be judged by millions of strangers in a narrative that will transform him or her into a hero or villain in the great social struggle against the public danger of the day.
Calling Adam Lanza a madman has little meaning now. The madman retreats to a private world of his own making. But the collective culture does not recognize madness as a detachment from the crowd. Instead it views it as yet another social malady to be solved. Re-open the asylums. Provide more mental health funding. Open hotlines for anyone with suicidal thoughts. Social solutions for a social society coping with the anti-social. (continue reading at Sultan Knish)
It seem to me that American has become 'two Americas' as John Edwards love to say when running for president. However, the two Americas are those who have control to make laws and the rest of us who have to live under those laws.
