Guns, and God (2/20/99)
This country was founded upon, and
continues to exist because of, firearms. Our founding fathers
saw fit to include the inalienable right to bear and hold weaponry in our
Bill of Rights, that wondrous and fluid addendum to the Constitution.
The only fault I can find in their reasoning is that they did not envisage
the need for multiple firearms in each homestead, and the need for
automatic, quick-firing, easily concealed weaponry. Our
right, as God-fearing Americans, to possess as many firearms
as possible, is guaranteed by the framework of our great nation.
In fact, I would posit that it behooves every American to possess
as many firearms as his or her budget allows. I believe the facts
support this position. Allow me to demonstrate.
Those are just some of the reasons that
the God-given right to carry firearms should be protected, especially
in light of the atrocious Brady Bill and its liberal socialist knee-jerk
cousins. Outlaw guns, and legislate against guns, and
only outlaw legislative crooks will have guns. You can have my guns
when you pry my cold, hard, dead, distended, bloody,
rigor mortis-stiffened, smelly, decomposed fingers from them.
The youngsters killed in Paducah,
Kentucky, while gathered around a prayer circle, would have
had a fighting chance if we had demanded that EACH PERSON POSSESS A FIREARM.
Since the possession of a firearm is a God-given right (as codified in
our Constitution), and since the deceased students were praying to
God, it only seems fitting that they should have been armed.
But they weren't, thanks to liberal throttling of our right to bear
arms. Many liberal media wonks have stated that the root of the massacre
lay in the ease of access to firearms the killer had. This is NOT
TRUE. The root of the massacre could have been unrooted and nipped
in the rooting tendril of its bud had everyone in the area possessed a
gun. Case closed.
Likewise, the shootings allegedly
performed by the Oregon student (referring to another recent high school
exchange of fire) may have resulted in a minor skirmish and some negligible
flesh wounds had every student been armed to the teeth. The fact
that the student had ready access to several firearms has nothing to do
with the fact that he used them. Guns don't kill people; the
lack of guns given to the people being shot at kills people.
The liberal press often bemoans the travesty
of inner city crime, pointing a finger at guns as the culprit.
"Guns are too easily obtained," these whining twerps say. "If
all those gangbangers couldn't get guns, they couldn't shoot other
people" they harp. There are a few logical problems with this argument.
First of all, if everyone in the "inner city" had a gun, shootings
would probably go down; if not, they would at least be more
evenly matched. Secondly, the liberals forget the fact that
in most "inner cities", the population is usually black, immigrant,
student, working person, or otherwise disenfranchised, and
they want to kill each other anyway. Gun control, knife control,
ironing board control--whatever. It won't matter when you're dealing
with that sort of mindset. This liberal smoke screen of "poverty"
and "no alternatives" and "lack of choices" is so much hooey: violent
tendencies are inbred and genetic, and they will be expressed using
whatever means comes to hand.
I remember when I was but a small child,
barely able with my chubby knees and floppy thighs, to keep pace
with my huge and burly father as we stalked small animals on our hunting
trips. In those halcyon days of yore, it mattered not who you
were or how many guns you'd already bought--you could buy a TRUCKLOAD of
artillery, no questions asked. Those are the days I miss.
Many are the nights I lie awake remembering the smell of the dew on the
pine straw beneath the canopy of trees; the taste of my first cup
of coffee, age 9; the thrill of the first covey of quail flushed
out by our trusty pointer Lothar. In those days, Father,
myself, and our family helper Groober would fire at random and with
abandon in the air, and chances were we'd kill several birds.
Some of them were edible. Had we access to the firepower available
today, we could have sprayed more birds down from the sky.
That's another reason to make all guns legal--hunting requires the hunter
to be as highly advanced as possible.
Thank you, and God bless
