The crazies are out in force after the recent shooting spree in Florida. Crazies on all sides and facets of the shooting.
I think that some things need to be addressed as liberals have, predictably, attempted to lay the blame on firearms.
There is a new anti-gun rhetoric piece floating around Facebook. It depicts a muzzle-loading firearm along with how "this" was the available weapon when our founding fathers penned the 2nd Amendment.
It is further proof that liberals have no understanding at all about what the 2nd Amendment is all about.
The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with an type of weapon. The 2nd Amendment is written to give Americans the right to protect themselves, in whatever manner necessary, from tyranny and oppression.
There are two types of people in this world. There are predators and there are prey. As much as our liberal friends would like us to believe it, no amount of wishing, good will, peace efforts, or compromise, will ever stop predators from attempting to do harm to prey.
The only way for prey to remain safe from harm is to meet force with equal, or superior, force.
When the most sophisticated weapon available was a rock, the only way to remain safe was to wield a larger rock.
When the best weapon was a muzzle-loading rifle, another rifle was the way to insure safety.
Now is perhaps a good point to interject that when our founding fathers wrote the laws of the land, they included penalties for those who broke the law. If you killed someone, and were tried and convicted, you paid with your life.
We did not allow those who threatened our way of life to breach our borders.
The 2nd Amendment is no less important than when it was written more than two centuries ago. The difference is the tools necessary to meet current threats.
About now, liberal anti-gun advocates are going to say, well, if guns (any/all) are outlawed, we wouldn't have to worry. It is that sort of fantasy from which massacres are born.
There is one, only one, way to deal with those who would wish to kill you and that is to kill them first. Doesn't that sound cruel? It may, but this is the real world, not the liberal fantasy world.
Peace sounds wonderful. Oh, that we could live in a world where there was no violence. But, we live in a real world. A world in which the only way to protect ourselves and our families from predators is to be ready to defend ourselves. And the only way in which we can is to meet force with whatever means is necessary to survive. That, my friends, is why the 2nd Amendment is as vital to our very survival in 2016 as it was in 1791.
