My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

Archive for the tag “mass murders”


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?



Well, here we go again.  The liberals are all hollering for more gun controls.  They do this every time some idiot shoots someone, as in the recent California shooting.  It is a shame that they do this instead of confronting the real problem which is the “mental health system” in this country.  Take a look back and all the shooters in these events were known to have mental health issues or at least border-line as relating to mental health issues.  Most all of the families had tried to get them some sort of care; but, the system itself stood in the way.  Folks, just think about this, when someone goes off the “deep end” and shoots up any place, it is only “COMMON SENSE” that they have a mental problem.  The latest shooter, in California, claimed that he was still a “virgin” and that the “girls” did not show him “love”.  “WHY HELL, I WAS TOLD NO IN THE BACK SEAT OF A ’57 CHEVY HUNDREDS OF TIMES” but I never went crazy over it and shot the girls or their friends.  They just lost their spot in the front seat.  “A long walk home, they say”.  Tried that once with a big ole “Dutch” gal in a boat on the lake, telling her she would have to swim, but she threw me overboard and made me swim.  Never tried that again, damn near drowned!

But, let’s get back to this “mental health” thing.  We, as a nation, have more freedoms than most countries and that is the way we want it.  Let me assure you that if “we, as a people” give up our 2nd amendment right; we will also lose our 1st amendment right. The liberals do not seem to understand that they will not be able to spew their nonsense, which is protected by the 1st amendment, if we give up our right to “arms”.  Although, I despise the message that they spread, I will die defending their right to spread it; but, they will not do the same for my right to spread my message.  They have even gone to having the IRS target people like me to try to shut me up.  As you can see, it has not worked.  It only serves to strengthen my resolve.  Anyone ever hear of the IRS scandal in the Obama administration?  If you have, then I know you have not been watching the network news because they are hiding it as best they can.  The mass liberal media does not realize what protects their right to their chosen profession.

I am printing the following not to poke at the left, but just so they and you, the reader, can see a plain and simple fact.  It will surprise many if not most of you simply because you have never taken the time to research who the shooters might be.  And the liberal press would have you believe that all the shooters are “far right-wing conservative nut jobs” which could not be further from the truth.  I’ll not disclose any more about the results; so, you will have to read the material.  Hopefully, you will come to the same conclusion as I have as it only makes “COMMON SENSE”.

Now that you have read the facts, you should be able to decide for yourself were the problem lies and it certainly is not “gun control laws”.  It is the “mental health issue” and we must do a better job of restricting these people as in seeing that they get care for their problem.  By the way, just as a side note, the latest event in California started when the shooter stabbed his first three victims to death. “COMMON SENSE” would conclude that the liberals should be calling for a ban on knives.  That is “ASSAULT KNIVES”.  You know what that is don’t you?  It is any knife capable of being used in multiple stabbings and with a black handle.  Really, that is how stupid all this “banning of weapons” crap becomes when you extend it to its ultimate end.  Next is “ball bats” as more people have used it than any other weapon.  Think about this and see if maybe you can come up with a “COMMON SENSE” solution.  I bet you will beat the liberals to the solution. If not, then you have no “COMMON SENSE” and you need to look into the mirror because you are a “dumb ass” and part of the problem.

A final thought: after reviewing the above list, maybe the only gun control law we need is one restricting Democrats from weapons.


As you all know, I think “Common Sense” in America is in short supply.  The recent debate on guns has shown me that I am 100% right.  Do me a favor, if you will, take a gun, a knife and a baseball bat and put them on your table.  Let them lay there a while and then one at a time command them to move to the floor or across the room to another table.   Now, if you are one of those idiots claiming the guns are the problem, I would like for you to hold your breath just until they move.  I think we just solved the problem.  Now wasn’t that easy. Bet you, who know me personally, never knew I was so smart.  You see it is not the guns, it is the people.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of folks on every T.V. channel calling for gun control.  We already have gun control.  You see, I have control of every gun I own and none will do a damn thing until I react, so the gun is under my control.  I have listened with disgust to supposedly smart people make complete asses out of themselves on T.V.   These are not all liberals.  There are also a fair share of, so-called, conservatives joining in on this nonsense.  Just a lot of jerks having a “knee jerk” reaction.  Let’s look at but a few of those calling for more control.  There is Mayor Bloomberg, Bill O’Reilly and Piers Morgan to name but a few.   I’ll bet you, if we walked up to them and handed them a AR-15 and said “here is the mag, bullets etc. now you load, handle and unload,” they could not do it.  If they can’t, then why the hell are they even talking about it.  You see, in their positions, they are only qualified to inform us of things that are happening in the news.  If anyone is going to lecture me about guns, let it be one of their staff.   That’s right, they all have staff much more qualified to speak about guns than themselves.  Does “bodyguards” ring a bell?  You see, they all are protected by the gun somewhere down the chain.  Every mayor in every major city, every governor, every congress person, the vice president and even President Obama and his entire family are protected by the gun.  They have all the protection they need but are against us and the 2nd Amendment having the same security in our life.  Most, if not all, of the Hollywood crowd who are on the T.V. ads pushing for “gun control” have bodyguards that are packing “heat”.  Just check out all the fire arms going to Hawaii to protect the President and his family.  All these people have protection of the gun, all the while, living in much safer places than most of the population at large.  Does the thought of double standard come to mind?

Bill O’Reilly seems to want us to register our weapons with the FBI.  As Bill would say, “You are a pinhead”.  If we follow his lead, the government would know where to go when they decide to move to the next phase–confiscation.   Piers Morgan stated just last nite that a semi/auto could fire 5/6 rounds per second which is completely false.  If he was knowledgeable of the weapon, he would know it is false.  Let me just point out to the tea sipper that we kicked their ass once for taxation without representation; and if he is not careful, he might get a dose of wup-ass over gun control.  Glad to have you here Piers, as you are somewhat a productive member of our society, and I assume a U.S. citizen; but if you do not like it here, go back to “Bloody Ol England” chap.

As this debate has unfolded, I have heard many ask and have been asked myself, “Why does anyone need an auto or semi/auto gun or rifle?” I would not think for a moment to try to decide for another what or why, he or she, might need any type of gun. Simply interpreted, the 2nd Amendment says nothing about “NEED”.  It says that I have the right to bear arms.  It does not specify any need or for that matter limit me to any type of arms. It is the government of today that is trying to reinterpret the 2nd Amendment.  As stated previously, the 2nd Amendment has served this country since its birth; and I, as a free American, do not want to see it trampled. I live out where they do not bring mail to my house; so, how long would it take for the law to reach me?  No thanks, I take care of it myself.

The gun rights folks are not trying to force their views on anyone else.  We do not care if you own a gun, or not. But do folks not realize, that by my owning a gun, it protects their rights as well as mine. Not just their gun rights, but all their rights.  All that we are saying is just “leave us to hell alone”, do as you please, and let us do the same.  I have been a gun owner since I was about 12 years old and have never shot anyone; although, I have used one several times to deter possible problems.  “Common Sense” tells me that I will never shoot anyone until they come up my road, yes my road, all mine alone, to take my guns.  When that happens, “All bets are off”.

As of just a few days ago, I exercised my 2nd Amendment right and bought myself a “JUDGE”. So, henceforth, you can address me as “YOUR HONOR” since I will be packing the “JUDGE”.  “HERE COME THE JUDGE, HERE COME THE JUDGE”.


It is horrible what has and is happening in America with all the mass murders.  Americans are harming one another at an alarming rate.  The shooting at Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut is but the latest in tragedies perpetrated against innocent victims in America.  Although no one knows just yet the true cause, it appears that the young man was a deeply disturbed person, to say the least.

The liberals, along with their lap dogs–the liberal press, are already out calling for gun control.  Will they never learn that it is the disturbed person at fault, not the gun, gun owners or the gun manufacturers? In fact, if you are going to blame a segment of folks, we should blame the far left or liberals, if you will; because, it is due to their policies that I believe we will find the root cause of these tragedies.

As I see it, we have raised a generation that is devoid of any of life’s foundations needed to progress through life itself.  I watched every politician on T.V. today ask for the public to pray for the victims and to pray for their families.  Even President Obama called for our prayers to console the families.  They and the liberal press called for these prayers all the while not realizing that they are the ones that have removed prayer from schools so the children know less about the power of prayer than any time in our history.  If you want people to pray for any reason, they must first be taught how and taught of the power of prayer.  We have no mention of the “TEN COMMANDMENTS” in school or any other public forum.  In Matthew 7:12 it is ,I believe, Jesus who says “Love thy neighbor as you love yourself”; but, our children of today do not hear this  nor understand the meaning.  The children of today have no spiritual foundation on which to build their lives.  You can ignore this fact; but, the chaos will continue until we make an effort to give leadership, both knowledge and spiritual, to our young.  They hear of the thousands murdered in the womb and you expect them to value life.  Just how stupid are we?  We, as a people, need to be more consistent in our views and teachings.  Now, I’m no preacher. But, I did grow up in a time when we prayed and said the pledge everyday in school and it served to help give me a spiritual background, loyalty to my country and to value life as well as our way of life. I had a strong mother who taught me these same fundamentals and all the while being reinforced in my school each and everyday.

This young man at fault for this tragedy most likely had none of the background that I grew up learning; thusly, devoid of the foundation to process thru his problems.  Just think if he had been taught and believed in the “TEN COMMANDMENTS.” He would have known to “Honor thy Mother and thy Father” or “Thou shalt not commit murder”.  These two alone would have, or should, have deterred him of his actions.  Just think for a moment—If we all lived our lives according to the “TEN” how great would life be, with no need for police, lawyers and courts.  Of course, the lawyers would not like that and there are mostly lawyers in D.C. making laws for us.

Folks, I have always said that the T.V. is the greatest educational tool ever invented and it has proved me right over the years.  What is on the T.V. is what our children are learning.  It is sex, drugs and violence and this display of violence has been learned.  Just as all the liberals want “BIG BIRD” to remain on PBS for our very young, our teens are learning from the trash on T.V.   Now, I know the libs will come after me; but, you can’t have it both ways.  If “BIG BIRD” is educational, then so is the trash.  For God sakes, wake up and smell the coffee.

Finally, “Common Sense” tells us to live by the “Golden Rule” of “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” and to do what is right even when no one is looking is a great way to live your life.  So get off your lazy duff, get a job, get off the dole, stand on your own two feet, help your fellow-man when you can and help a child understand that according to “GOD” they are special.  If that is not “Common Sense,” then I’ll eat my hat.
