Well, everyone should be happy as we have now found all the knowledge you will ever need. Just ask a “teenager”. CNN, and all the media, have just discovered this “river of knowledge” that we have been ignoring for years. Teenagers, as it turns out, now have all the answers to how to stop “school shootings”. Now, “COMMON SENSE” would tell you that if they are that smart then we should be listening to them on a wide range of subjects. They, the teenagers, have said they know about government and how it works. They have said that more “gun control” will stop the shootings and that the NRA is “BAD”. If they are really that smart, then “you” should also have them handle all your finances. Good luck on your retirement. They blame “TRUMP” for the shooting in Florida; but, who was responsible for the “SANDY HOOK” shootings, OBAMA? This is just pointed out to make a point that the “President” isn’t and never has been responsible for any of the shootings. BUT, remember now, this teenager thing is our new wealth of knowledge. BS. Like “putting a fox in charge of watching the hen-house”.
Let’s just look at a few cities that have the strongest gun control. Look at Chicago, Baltimore, D.C., or NYC. All of these cities have been controlled by democrats for 30/50 years and have horrible crime ratings. Whatever we are doing in Fischer, Texas is what we need to follow in the rest of the country because there is very little crime here. AND WE HAVE NO GUN CONTROL HERE. I guess that is wrong because most of us have a lot of guns and we control them. Funny how it works here but would not work everywhere. I can’t even remember the last “murder” we had here. We have very few to no “home invasions” as everyone knows if you break into a house here you will be shot. And, I should point out, that if you come up any drive to “take away” someone’s guns you will be shot.
Let me run this “COMMON SENSE” stuff by you once more. The AR 15 used in the school shooting did not go to the school by itself. It did not load itself. It did not pull the fire alarm. This was all done by someone. Now think about this long and hard! Maybe we ought not blame the AR 15; but, blame the person that did all this. Plus, maybe, he is the one to blame for pulling the trigger. “YA, THINK”?
All the anchors on TV like to call this AR 15 an “assault weapon”. It isn’t such a thing. They talk about it as if they have knowledge of it; but, hand one of them a weapon and have them take it apart and put it back together. They can’t! But, they can damn sure talk it to death. The AR 15 is not an automatic weapon, it is a semi-auto weapon. Just like many deer rifles. And I’d like to point out that I have had them since they first started to manufacture them and none of mine have killed anyone. If it was this awful thing the news people talk about, then at least one of mine would have jumped up and killed someone.
I’m not saying we shouldn’t think this thru and try to solve this problem. But rather I’m saying that listening to a bunch of teenagers is not going to get us very far. Maybe we should try “HARDENING” the target. Most of, if not all, the shootings are happening at schools. What do most or all schools have in common. They are “gun free zones” and the shooters know it. Ever wonder why they don’t go to banks, large business buildings or most government buildings, like Congress, to do their shootings. Of course, you didn’t ever think of that because it makes “COMMON SENSE”. You would rather listen to a teenager than use “COMMON SENSE” and there in lies the problem. Maybe we ought to figure out how to spot those individuals who lean to the “crazy” side and put them away or take away their guns. But leave me and mine alone. Now, who do you want to make that decision, ME? I will be “KING” and I will decide who can have a gun and who can’t. Do you see where this is heading? Because if you will give up one freedom because the decision is hard, then I’ll make all the decisions for you. I’ll decide where you can work, what you can drive, what you can eat and who you can love. “KING JERRY” will lay down the law and you will follow it or “there will be hell to pay”. I promise you I’ll treat you good. Now does this make you like this “COMMON SENSE” stuff better? If you do not like this idea, then how the hell does it make any sense to listen to a bunch of teenagers?
