The gun argument is now lost because a majority of the American people are willing to turn everything over to the government. Oh, to be wrong but these days, emotion rules, and the emotions are running sky high over the Sandy Hook school shootings.
The gun-takers may well write up some fancy language to enable the ultimate trashing of the Constitution. They can expect it will be, shall we say problematic, to actually collect them from the citizenry. It will be impossible to take guns from the crooks and crazies.
America is on a glide-path that is out of our hands and has been for many years. Think back to the Branch Davidian nut-job in Waco and those 25 little kids who were burned alive. Not many cried for them when the government doomed them with a military style assault. In revenge, two other crazy persons destroyed the federal building in Oklahoma City. President Clinton, who escaped all blame for Waco found his sensitive side to soothe a grieving nation over Oklahoma City. America ate it up.
The hits just keep on coming with the latest being in Newtown Connecticut. How can so many miss the irony in all this fear and outrage against guns? Just look at the response by law enforcement in the little town. Good heavens, it looked like a full company of special ops came out, toting their new stimulus purchased Colt M4s with $1500 Trijicon scopes. I saw the locals, the state police, ATF, FBI and tons of swat types. Seriously, the ATF and FBI were on scene in force within a couple of hours.
What to make of this incredible show of force and federal over-reach when one on-site, trained person with a weapon could likely have prevented most or all of the killing? Instead, Americans will have to take what solace they can find in the words of another teary president, Barack Obama. Eat it up, America. You’ve been played, again.
God bless the little children and their teachers, now departed. God help the rest of us because America is becoming a God free zone. The One, the authentic One, who put us here will not return for us until the horror ahead does its work.
