The Right to Bear Arms
I don't know why I'm even going to waste my breath on this one...
People who agree that this Amendment is an out of date "right" will agree with me, and those who are completely blinded by stupidity, will not.
The basic thing is, this Amendment should have been changed over a hundred years ago, and for some reason it still remains in the Bill of Rights.
Now, if I am a Canadian and I don't really give a shit about Americans killing each other off with guns because they are not my countrymen, does that make me less objective? In fact for the most part, it is usually the degenerates killing each other off in their gangster-like behaviour, so in a way, it's actually a GOOD thing. But I'm talking about all the good people who get caught in the big game of Gun Possession. And the list counts in the tens of thousands every year.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that the government should tell you that you can or cannot own a firearm. Not at all... What I am saying, is if the government allows you to have a licence to drive, a right to vote, then they should be able to grant you a licence IF YOU QUALIFY to own one.
Other countries have MUCH more strict legislation about the care of guns, why doesn't the US?
I would propose that if you have the following, you CANNOT own, carry, or possess a firearm, or weapon of any type.
A) A Criminal Record involving violence.
B) Been to Jail
C) Been convicted of Drug Trafficking.
That's a good start.... I'm quite sure that you could put together a bunch of brain childs in a room and they could take it over from there for me, but that would be a great start. I guarantee if this were the case, you would see gun violence at least be brought down in numbers. It would take many, many years to make some serious headway, but take into consideration that it's taken hundreds of years to ignore a problem that has caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of citizens from guns in the US.
So, I don't understand why this Amendment still goes unscathed? It's pure stupidity and arrogance. Everyone who tells you that guns don't kill people, that people kill people are just talking in circles. That's like saying Farmers don't work the fields, it's their equipment that does the dirty work for them. Well, I don't buy that bullshit.
If you demonstrate bad anti-social behaviour, your rights get taken away. And this should apply to guns BEFORE you get them, NOT after you commit the crime. It's simply too late then...
It seems to me, that people who need to carry guns for "protection" are just protecting themselves from the evil that used to be the fears of the founding fathers when they created this right over 200 years ago. But times have changed! There was no law enforcement, or civil protection from heads of state, criminals, governments, ect. There is ample infrastructure these days to null and void this right now. I honestly believe that if the Bill of Rights were to be written today, it would NEVER include such a hideous notion that one may have the Right to Bear Arms. -It just would not happen.
Anybody who would suggest otherwise is probably getting paid to do so, or is so stupid that they would not be logical enough to sit and reason with in any given conversation. Period.
Stop defending this pathetically outdated right just because it was written 200 years ago, and start realizing that you are the only country still stupid enough to not get your act together, and join us in the 21 century.
I would have to say that Michael Moore in his movie, "Bowling for Columbine" makes a stellar case against the right to bear arms. The statistics just don't lie...
But you know what they say, "Liars can figure, but figures can't lie"
