It's Gun Control, Stupid

Another week. Another senseless shooting at a college campus. Another young man with a history of mental illness--the kid with the unpronounceable name spent time in a mental institution after high school because he'd become unmanageable--who is able to simply go into a gun shop and buy the most lethal weapons available. No real background check; they only check to see if the person has a criminal record. Steven Kazmierczak didn't. So he was able to buy a glock pistol and a shotgun to add to his previous handgun arsenal.

Then he showed up on campus and started to kill geology students at random.

Now clearly the guy was mentally ill. But I am stunned by the most common comment: we can't stop this type of thing. We're all vulnerable. Some crazy wants to do this, it's impossible to stop.

Well yes. Always assuming that the crazy lives in the United States of America, where morons in the National Rifle Association are able to gut any meaningful gun control laws by appealing to the Constitution's Second Amendment. We have a right to bear arms, they shout. And Charleston Heston takes his stand menacing anyone who tries to take his gun away--from his "cold, dead hand." They'll have to kill me first.

No one wants to kill Moses. No legislator is brave enough to challenge the gun control lobby. So Steven Kazmierczak is able to buy his guns and blast away. After all, it's his second amendment right. Is that so? Does the Constitution give Americans, even crazy ones, the right to shoot randomly, lethally, with the best weaponry available, at perfect strangers? Apparently so. After all, it's in the Constitution (though in fact, the Constitution gives the right to bear arms only to militias).

And Americans say, What can we do? Only a moronic nation would allow this to go on. Only a nation controlled by idiots would defend the right of such people to kill. Only a nation steeped in killing itself would allow its crazies to slaughter innocents and call it freedom. Will such a nation ever wake up? Learn to read its own founding document? The signs are not good.

  1. I must say i can disprove ever point you make. Yes, it's a terrible tragedy that happened, another college campus killing, but gun control is the stupidest thing i have ever heard of. You say he just walked in, no background checks, and bought two guns to add to his arsenal. Lets think about this. What if there are background checks, and he fails? Are you really that idiotic to think that a background check is actually going to stop him from obtaining a gun? No, of course not. What criminals do with guns is already illegal. He will just steal a gun, buy it off the black market or something like that. He already has a plan of killing dozens of people. When he goes to the gun store to try and buy a gun, gets denied, he's not going to say "Aw shoot, guess i can't do it". Hell no he's not, hes going to steal a gun and use that. Now here is something for you to think about. Let's take viginia tech for example, and role play two different scenarios. Scenario one: a crazed man walks into the school with two automatic weapons and kills 33 people. Scenario two: A crazed man walks into the school with two automatic weapons and kills one person, before being killed by a professor who, because of the 2nd amendment carries a gun with him wheverever he goes.

    Which one is better? Idiots who believe in gun control are absolutely the dumbest people in America. There was a law passed called the "Gun Free Zone". This law means that no one can carry a weapon into a school, post office, etc. Now here is a question for you: Where do all the big slayings occur? INSIDE THE "GUN FREE ZONE". Columbine, Virginia Tech, Northern Illinois University, all "GUN FREE ZONES". Tell me, if it's a gun free zone, why were these people shot and murdered? Because these crazy people brought guns into the gun free zones!!! you know why??? Because they are criminals!!! They don't care! what they are doing is already illegal in the first place, a freaking sign saying "no guns" isn't going to stop them! it does, however, stop the law-abiding citizen, who could have prevented the loss of life on these terrible days.

    Another story about why gun conrtol are the most retarded laws ever... A woman is having dinner with her family at a local restaurant. All of sudden, a crazed man drives his car into the restaurant and starts killing people execution style with a pistol. The woman's father charges at the man to tackle him and take the gun away from him. He is shot and killed instantly. The Father's wife runs over to hug her husband for the last time. The killer walks over to her, she looks up, and kills her from point blank range. The woman has a pistol, but because of a GUN CONTROL law passed a week prior to the incident, she had to leave her pistol in her car, and could NOT save her families life. So you, and every other idiot who is for gun control should be charged with murder because you prevent that woman from saving her families life. If anyone ever killed my family and i couldn't protect them because you and all your idiot buddies gathered up and passed some gun control laws, i couldnt live with myself. I don't see how you could live with yourself either.

    Please, please, please, rethink your position on gun control. It only hurts us by taking away guns from the good people, the bad people who use guns for murder, rather than protection, are the ones that gun control laws help.

  2. Here is the video of the lady i talked about at the restaurant...

    All she wanted to do was save her mom and dad. Couldn't do it because of gun control. Perfect example of how gun control helps bad guys and hurts the good citizens.
