Logic? Who needs logic when you have an assault rifle pointed at everyone’s head? I just don’t see why there can’t be more research done on violence, especially with guns. The NRA released a video calling Obama a hypocrite for having Secret Service guard his daughters at school. Why shouldn’t the PRESIDENT of the United States have Secret Service guarding his daughters? Just because the President has gun toting Secret Service protection then everyone else should too because that would be fair? I’m not sure that you can fight ignorant behavior with more ignorance or fight gun violence with more guns. Only in America can you drive down to Wal-Mart in your over-sized pick-up and park in a sea of asphalt to buy an 18 pack of beer, a semi-automatic rifle, and a set of plastic NASCAR mugs made in China. Where is the logic in that?
There certainly are reasons to be concerned that Washington is taking more and more steps to limit freedom. The debate needs to framed logically and not with the tough guy act of prying weapons from someone’s cold dead hands. Guns Don’t Kill People, People Kill People by shooting them with a gun. Some people think the Government should register guns. Probably not going to happen anytime soon. Some people think the Government should register “stupid people.” The Government has already done that and they have given them a number. I think it is called a Social Security number. One way or another and at one time or another we would all make that list. Just because a person has something to make them feel more in control than they really are doesn’t make it so. A wise man can admit there is much that he does not know and does not need to fear death so much that he forgets to live. That is the only thing that is certain in this world. SQUAREROOTOFZERO
