Common Sense, Witch Hunts and Conniption Fits

****************************************************************************************************

Articles written from the Left plead for a "common sense" discussion about gun control.  What they fail to understand is this... When it comes to the Second Amendment, there is nothing to discuss, just as there is no discussion about controlling First Amendment protections on free speech. It doesn't make any difference how many polls or surveys or studies there are - The Second Amendment is a Right, not subject to opinion. Even if polls ran 99% in favor of gun control, it doesn't matter. The Bill of Rights protects the one from the many (tyranny). If you protect the Rights of the one, you protect the Rights of all.

I think we need a law that makes it illegal to break a law... Wait... did I just use Gun Control Logic?

I think they should pass a "Criminal Must Run" law. When a criminal in the act of committing a crime meets up with an individual who chooses to defend himself from said criminal committing the crime, the criminal committing the crime must run away from the crime scene or be arrested. That ought to take care of all our problems

Having body cams on Cops is about one thing and one thing only. The ability to ensure that the Citizens of this Country are protected from those that are paid to protect and serve us. Everything else is smoke and mirrors. The very reason LE is going to body cams is due to far to many LEO's behaving as if they are the judge and jury. The camera's will do two things - Make peace officers follow the law and treat Citizens with respect while Citizens will have to do the same. This is a win / win.

Michael Bloomberg is beginning to look a lot like Joseph McCarthy. McCarthy whipped Americans into a frenzy, making a mountain out of a Communist molehill - then fell hard when the American public not only realized it, but understood the insidiousness of his propganda. Bloomberg is like that - His message, couched in emotion, fear and "common sense" is not only insidious, but sinister as well. Thankfully, due to the fight of sane and fearless Citizens, he's beginning to look desperate and stupid - and to be honest, like many narcissists,  he's just not bright enough to know this is a war he can't win.  He is on the wrong side of the argument.

It will always be a fight, but I don't think he has the backing of as many as he believes. Oh, they may be loud and animated - which serves his out of control ego well - but there's just not that many of them.

If I hear one more politician or rights activist use the phrase "common sense" I'm going to puke.

It seems as though many people assume that if you carry into a place with a non-compliant No Guns sign and they find out you have a gun, you will be "asked to leave."  What if you aren't "asked to leave?"  What if they panic and call the police about a "man with a gun!"

Thanks, but I think I will just leave my sidearm in the car or better yet, not go in.  They don't want my business?  They don't get my business.

Each time I go to my Grandkids school for a play, school event, sports or just to pick them up, it seems so silly that I can't walk right in with my sidearm concealed.  I stand there, look at all the children, the parents - a school full of targets - and it just seems comical that I am not allowed to stand there with them, with my gun.  I had the same thought when I went to the hospital to see an Aunt who had surgery.  There I am, standing outside her door, waiting for my Wife to come out.  It's quiet, calm and serene - and I'm thinking that this is so stupid that I have to disarm in the parking lot.

Speaking of wives, mine didn't like the idea of guns, but didn't give me too much flak.  She would've just as soon I not carry... all the standard stuff, Grandkids, accidents, how do I know for sure the gun won't break and go off.   She would look away or have a physical reaction (flinch) when I unholstered in the car and put the gun into the locking glove box right in front of her passenger seat.  Now?  It doesn't bother her at all.  She has become accustomed to the sight of my sidearm.  She opens the glove box for me before I unholster.  And she feels safer when we go out.  I guess with concealed carry, there is an adjustment time for everyone!
