The truth is I’m just here to say a few word, I don’t feel like backing myself up with research, or nicely wording anything, just venting my thoughts…
I’ve heard to many times people say that we do not need so many guns out there, the semi automatic stuff makes everyone a little nervouse. I don’t like guns myself, I don’t. They are deadly, especially in the hands of a maniac. I don’t like that cops carry them, because I feel like they are just as capable of abusing our gun rights as anyone else. However, people do have a right to own and carry guns in this country. Read the Bill of Rights, it IS our right to own such things as semi automatics.
There is a reason that it is in there too. Other countries don’t allow people to own weapons, or carry them around like we do here. The founders of this country came from such a place, they escaped the oppressive government powers of England, and many other countries. They lived in hard time, as we do now, and they had to defend themselfs, their land, and country from others. They fought, they sacraficed their lifes, they were not all young, most of them were old men, but they put themselfs on the line to provide us with what we have now. A free country to live as we choose- something they never had.
However they did have a job for us, they left us with the DUTY to protect this country against any corrupt government. The constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Indepentence, these are the true laws of the land, these documents are the true government, and as citezencs of this country it is our duty to uphold those laws, to ensure the freedoms they provide us. Breaking one of them (like taking away our gun rights) deteriorates them all. This is why I am not supportive of gun control. Not because I’m crazy, paranoid, or even own a gun, but because I beleive in what the founders of this country beleived in- Freedom.
