Every time we have one of these mass shootings, bleeding hearts come along and want to take all the guns away from people who had absolutely nothing to do with the incident. In general, these are the same people who want to legalize drugs, and they want to ban guns for the exact same reasons.
You can ask for my gun, but you’re not getting it. It’s time to man up and face reality. You are never going to be 100% safe, and if you think you will be safer by disarming the general public, you are in for a nasty wake up call.
Anyone can hurt you anywhere, anytime. For the disarmed society to work the way you think it will, the government has to be everywhere, all the time—AND you have to trust that humans will not act human. This is something that will never happen.
The worst case scenario is a mainland invasion of the United States. No, scratch that—the worst case scenario is you all getting your way, then we have an invasion of the mainland United States. Our reputation as a nation of gunslinging nutjobs is the only thing stopping something like that. (A gutted military can only do so much.)
Do you actually think in that situation you are going to have soldiers stationed outside your door so you can go on living like nothing is happening?
Why am I even asking this question? Of course you think that! That’s what you think the cops do now, because you’ve led such a cushy life that you’ve never been mugged. Nobody has ever done anything that they shouldn’t have, because we have laws! Laws stop bullets! The law stops people from doing bad things, and the law will get the guns away from the public so no one will ever hurt us again!
No one is going to be guarding your door, just like no one is guarding it now. Anybody can break into your house anytime. I hope the cops get there before anything happens to you—I hope you have time to grab your cell phone before you barricade yourself in the closet. I hope they don’t get away with everything for which you worked so hard (if you’re a 99%er, somebody else worked hard for it, but that’s not the point).
Police are all well and good after the fact. They show up with chalk and yellow crime scene tape and body bags - all the stuff you need to clean up dead bodies of people who didn't have the firepower to defend themselves.
There are so many pathetic people in this country. The only thing you have to do is troll the internet and demand the public flogging of people who tweet the wrong thing at the wrong time. This is the sign of a society distracted by too many things to bother with what’s really important. This is the sign of a spoiled child.
Do you have any idea what happens during an invasion, or a national emergency, or even when someone disables your home alarm system before they sack your house? No, of course you wouldn’t. Things like rape, pillaging and murder only happen on TV shows and to people who deserve it, not you. I won’t get into the specifics, because by now you’re flipping tabs to get the latest update from ONTD.
Look at yourselves. To outsiders, you are not just a spoiled child. You think you are so secure, so untouchable, that people are so honorable, that no one will ever try to hurt or rob you. To foreign countries, and the burglar next door, you’re not just a spoiled child. You’re not even an easy target.
You're the one who can't be bothered to lock your doors, the princess waiting to be rescued by the mighty Federal Government.
You are a slice of cake, just waiting to be eaten.
So go ahead, ban guns if it will make you feel better. We’ll still have them and you won’t. The gunslinging nutjobs will be the only thing standing between you and all the threats we face. That should bother you.
But it doesn’t.
