Thats it exactly.....<quoted text>The reason it is easy to get a gun is because gun ownership is your right in the constitution. The only thing that would have reduced the number of people killed in all of these mass shooting is one or more people who are armed.500,000 people in Texas have concealed carry and we are safer for it. If criminals are going to have guns even though it is illegal to do so I want good people armed and able to fight back
In real life..
Unfortunately politics is so disconnected from real life now, its just not even comprehensible... Firstly, yes they are getting more publicity even over here we are hearing all about incidents which really, are none of our business. Why? Because that president is attempting to shift public opinion in hopes of a majority vote to ban guns. Why? Because America is probably the only country in the world where if push came to shove, the authorities actually wouldnt stand a chance against the entire population. And that is the problem. Criminals will always be against authorities that will never change. But Law abiders can be pushed around and can be disarmred if its illegal to be armed. And they outnumber criminals significantly. America is running a 16trillion debt. That will never be payed back, it just wont. Theyve accumulated 2trillion in less than two years. That level of debt accumulation cant even be curbed, let alone stopped. Or even reversed. So within the next year or two something is gonna give and when it does... well, lets just say the gove will take full control of everything. And administer some "tough love" and thats putting it very very very mildly. So... Protest? In Ireland i never attend any. I just cannot, no matter how hard I try, swallow standing in a stupid group waving stupid signs while being FULLY aware that the politicians were protesting just look out their windows and laugh before going back to their business. Now.. if we were all waving guns instead of signs, things might be different. See what im getting at? Americans face serious serious hardship and need to be controllable and suppressable by, what by then, should be a fully developed and equipped constabulary force when they decide enough is enough. It sucks but im almost positivr thats the general jist of whats going on.
