Don’t get me wrong…I think the tragedy in Dallas was terrible. I just think certain people’s reaction to it was a little off. No, let’s make that a lot off. Let me explain.
When Barack Obama addresses the nation after the shooting in Dallas, he mentioned that a “few deranged individuals” were at fault. Now, this differs entirely from what he has said in the past when it wasn’t the individual at all that was at fault. It was the fact that person was able to obtain weapons! We need to do something to stop the person from getting guns. After all, logic would dictate that if only a “few deranged individuals” were at fault in the shootings (be it San Bernardino, Dallas, Orlando, Sandy Hook, etc), then why punish a nation for a “few deranged individuals? You shouldn’t. It’s a major flaw in his logic.
The problem isn’t the gun. The problem isn’t the ability to obtain the weapon. If there is anyone out there that thinks that IF all guns were illegal, none of this stuff would happen, you’re loonier than a three dollar bill. The gun, the act of purchasing the gun, and the act of owning a gun of any kind isn’t the problem. The problem is the mental state of the individual buying the gun. And why is that individual not institutionalized?
Good question! The answer is simple. Remember, these folks were institutionalized until what…the 1960’s or 70’s? And why were they let out of the institutions? Because liberals told us it was cruel and unusual punishment to allow these people to be caged like animals. They needed to be free in society! And then bang! We have a homeless problem. Because they were released without any thought of where they were going or what they were doing, and they started living under bridges. Now, liberals will tell you that’s hogwash. Sure it is…just like gun control will solved all of the ills of these shootings. Liberals have screwed up so much in the past, and it seems it’s all coming home to roost right now. That’s the problem they’re facing. It’s not Obama necessarily…it’s all of them. It’s their screwed-up, let the government fix everything way of thinking.
The way to solve our nation’s gun problem isn’t by taking guns away. Criminals will always be able to arm themselves. They don’t care that there’s a law that they are breaking, which is evidenced by the mere fact they are killing people. Isn’t there a law against that too?
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
