They are too idiotic to realize it, but it's the pro-gun idiots out there that are pushing our nation to tougher firearms control. Take this story out of Salt Lake City:
A 6th grade student brought an unloaded handgun to West Kearns Elementary School Monday.
The 11-year-old boy told other students his parents encouraged him to bring a gun to school for protection following the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday.
The boy reportedly pulled the gun, a .22-caliber pistol, out of his backpack during recess Monday morning.
“At recess, he pointed a gun to my head and said he was going to kill me,” said Isabel Rios, one of the boy’s fellow 6th grade students.
First off. These parents, who by the love of God should not be allowed to reproduce, much less own weapons, put their child in more harms way. Pulling an unloaded weapon is extremely dangerous in violent situations. It makes the perpetrator take instant notice at you, and the most you can maybe do is throw the weapon at them. Smooth move, idiots! Hopefully your child is taken away from you.
Second, this shows that not everyone should have the right to own a gun. These parents sure as hell shouldn't considering they have given a firearm to a child. The parents should also be facing charges for child endangerment, but there is no word on that either.
One can only suspect that the parents are big pro-gun nuts. These are the people that think the only solution to any problem is with a firearm. These people are the biggest threat to the 2nd amendment we have.
Since Sandy Hook last week, we are seeing a big shift in opinion, both from the public and politicians. One more Sandy Hook incident and we will see even a bigger shift. A couple more and there will be enough support in this nation to repeal the 2nd amendment. So what's that say to the gun nuts?
Let's talk about the NRA. They are supposed to be the ones out there fighting for gun owners, yet every single mass shooting incident they become tight lipped. It was only a little over 3 decades ago that the NRA was very much for gun control, but then the gun industry wanted more money and pushed for a change in their views. Now the NRA thinks anyone should be allowed to own any type and number of guns, regardless of history or mental stability. They have also become the number one enemy to the 2nd amendment.
I believe the 2nd amendment is very much woven into the fabric of who we are and must be preserved. In order for that to happen, we need to stop giving air time and paying attention to the ones that want to destroy it by pushing so hard for less regulation. We are a smart nation and can come up with reasonable solutions, but if these people are allowed to interfere then we will go to the extreme solution. I don't want to see that and don't believe it will help our nation, so please don't give airtime to these idiots and start prosecuting people like the parents above to the maximum extent of the law. We really need this now.
