While watching this video that the National Rifle Association (NRA) has published, lunch was no longer an option. Attention had gone from a delicious sun dried tomato turkey wrap to disgust with this thought. What if the rights of the American citizens are being violated? What could be done? This is not just affecting one or a few individuals but all Americans? Now on any other day the NRA wouldn't get the time of day, but this was different.

As citizens of the United States, its our 2nd Amendment Right to bare arms. Then why is the United States government approving the disarming of it citizens? Okay think about this, One World Order, which promises worldwide peace. Did you ever see the movie "Equilibrium?" Alright, you may be thinking that some people watch too much television, but just bare with me. Think about this, if the government decided to wipe a small city in America out, let's say they bomb a particular area. What would they tell the public? That they annihilated their own citizens? No, they'd make up a cover-up story. To the naked eye most people would believe it, but their is always gonna be sceptics out there. Some will question and refute, only to finally be discredited as crazy, nutty, bi-polar, schizophrenic, the list goes on.

Take this example right out of the news. Hearing about the massacre at the Aurora, Colorado theatre was very upsetting. The loss of life was so needless and tragic. The families and survivors are in my thoughts and prayers. I am speechless concerning the gunman. He will receive due justice. There's no need to wonder why he did it. more than likely people will say he is mentally ill, somewhat of a spoiled brat, abused as a child or even that he just flipped. No matter what the reason, it is done. This is a prime example of what the government can use to justify an all out citizen disarmament.

We don't truly know what's going on behind closed government doors. We will only know what they want us to know. Think just a little deeper when things like this happens. Think about it first, once ruled out then question the obvious. No one can prevent the mind from thinking. So let's think people.

      I'm not for totally disarming the public but I am for making it MUCH harder to obtain a gun (even a BB gun).

      I know there is usually a 3 day "hold" which is good that way if someone is aggravted they can't act first and think later.

      However if you go to a gun show there is no hold. You pay your money, and pick up the gun you purchased at a local pawn shop (here anyways). Its retarded. I know there are people out there who do collect guns...good for them. To me gun shows should be for this purpose only and the gun's should "not work".

      I'm all for protecting my family if need be but I also want to know that when my teenager gets angry he or she is not going to be an idiot and "solve" their issues with a gun.

      I agree with you that guns should not be "banned" but I think a mandatory background check (that the customer pays for), a month hold (at least - think of it as a layaway plan) and no gun sales to anyone under 25ish. Just my opinion though...great hub!

      What a great article. Well said. You are right, no one knows what goes on behind government doors. In a blink of an eye, the right to bare arms could be changed. However, just because a person broke the law does not mean that all citizens should be punished for it. We must continue to fight for our rights regardless.

      Thank you for such a wonderful Hub. Voted up for interesting and awesome.

      Thanks for the news link (good choice), the destruction that firearms produce can be very disturbing. We must remember that everyone who owns firearms are not irresponsible with them. Some of us deserve to have the right to bare arms. While others definitely should not be allowed to.

      It appears that there is a long list of shooting incidents that the government can use as evidence to start the disarmament of it's citizens. Thanks :)

      The Aurora shooting is not a unique event. Apparently a mass shooting occurs on average every five days in the US, according to this article in the Daily Mail.
