A mentally disturbed individual poses a far greater threat than an inanimate object. What is the common correlation between these shootings in gun-free safe zones besides the fact that a gun was the tool employed- mental instability. From what I’ve witnessed of the Tumblr “gun control
debate outrage” people have a general lack of understanding of early American history hints why they are so quick to dismiss the 2nd amendment of the Constitution. They care less about the overall principle behind the law and would rather abolish it all together due to its “archaic nature.” Why stop at just the second amendment though? By employing this logic surely ending the first amendment will stop all speech and expression deemed to be harmful will it not? Furthermore I also question those that demand for more laws, as if more laws ever solved any problems.
The American public along with the media are a hilarious bunch of hypocritical imbeciles to witness in action. Take these two examples:
Old man gets illegally recorded and leaked to the media some un-politically correct statements. End result: Forced to sell business.
Now for the next scenario. Not as old man breaks the law he signed not even a year ago. Trades for a deserter who abandoned his fellow comrades in a war zone in exchange for 5 key opposition leaders. End result: Apologizes and says he won’t do it again.
This is the America I love. The one who tries to out-outrage everyone and cares about the things that are trivial. While true that in the US Military we don’t leave someone behind, the circumstances of this deserter make that line of reasoning fallacious. He wasn’t captured under heroic circumstances defending his fellow comrades in arms he left on his own accord. In more civilized times he would have been put to death for his actions.
