Nothing could be more heartbreaking than the shooting of innocent children and heroic teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut that occurred too recently.
Of course, no one can miss the point that the incident was also perfect propaganda for the gun snatchers in this increasingly socialist America, guided by that Marxist-in-chief in the White House.
Regardless of the statistics that prove that where citizens are armed, there are fewer crimes, the leftist traitors to the Second Amendment are trying to convince the public that the presence of guns is the cause of all shootings.
Under their reasoning, baseball bats and cars should be abolished because both can kill people.
Did Cain use a handgun on Abel? Should rocks, therefore, be abolished, too?
The cause of shootings is clearly this nation's state of being a sinful and fallen people — not the weapons chosen. Magazines such as “The New American” have also run articles demonstrating the connection with psychiatric/psychotropic drugs with every case of school shootings.
We should never forget Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto’s reply when he was asked why the Japanese did not attack California’s coast after the Pearl Harbor attack. Yamamoto replied, “in America there is a gun behind every blade of grass.”
Is it so hard to get the point that it is better to have a gun and not need it than to need it and not have it?
Legislators must not be stampeded into using a tragedy to promote an agenda which would emasculate the public.
