TKC MUST READ!!! SUPER DAVE CONFRONTS GUN CONTROL FACTS, FEELINGS AND FAKE NEWS!!!
This week activists and political leaders across Kansas City worked to decry the recent surge in gun violence and promote "solutions" which seek to further limit 2nd Amendment freedom. In fairness, A blog comment fave and our friend Super Dave shares this homespun note on the current fight to increasingly crack down on Constitutionally protected freedom.
Super Dave On Gun Control
It's funny what people get upset about . . .
On average, 100 people per day die in car wrecks and nobody seems to get to bent out of shape about those figures. Nobody is screaming to ban cars. But a murderer uses a gun to kill someone and people don't scream to hang/lock them up and throw away the key; instead they scream to ban guns. So you see the gun isn't the issue, it's those who misuse a gun.
People say we need cars but not guns. Funny how people love cars no matter how many die from them all the time. Guns and cars are one and the same. Each is a tool used to perform a task. There are many who need a gun for protection and to protect what they own They need them to protect themselves when traveling through areas with dangerous wildlife and many such areas are located in both Kansas and Missouri. Most people don't need two-plus cars but they own them. Not everybody needs an assault rifle either but, then again, people don't really need a sports car capable of going 100 plus miles per hour . . . Still, they're allowed to own potentially deadly and dangerous vehicles that are fully capable of breaking the law.
Many Americans are unwilling to face the truth about what is wrong with our country. They say harsh punishment isn't the answer but it's sure funny how that worked on me, and so many others in my generation, as a child.
Many of those who attended a vigil in Ohio turned it into a hate filled show, blaming someone who was the furthest from the actual cause of the attack i.e. President Trump. It's worth considering that kind of misdirection and media manipulation is to blame for a lot of our issues.
We are quickly heading down a road where the facts and the truth are pushed away so lies and hate are the basis for making decisions. That's insanity . . . They say the truth will set you free and it's time our country and our cities start accepting what is the truth and dealing with it. Ignoring the truth will never solve the problems that we confront everyday.
If you hit your finger with a hammer is it the hammer's fault or yours?
Put blame where it belongs and that's on those who have refused to be honest and deal with the facts of this current gun crisis and so many other problems confronting our nation.
You decide . . .
