Gun Control and Assault Weapons ban and Politicians . Two ridiculous notions. Politicians love the terms.
So in my house we have a ban on guns. Simple enough until Grandma gave him this.
First: Gun Control.
What the heck does that mean? The term only has one logical use. Control the operation of a gun. People who speak of regulating firearms use the term “Gun Control”, that is so like politicians. The mere thought that a legislation could control a gun is just so silly.
Second: Assault Weapons ban.
What kind of stupid is that? It reminds me of Hitler banning books, as though that would stop people from thinking anti Nazi thoughts. What did we say in the 60’s? Ban the bra? Ban the nukes in the 70’s Ban cigarettes in the 80’s Ban the pollution in the 90’s, and Ban the Muslims in 2000’s and now Ban the Banks.
LOL Is ban deodorant still around?
My Father one time let loose 4 rounds under our cabin.
It was the middle of the night. My dad said only a smell caused concern and then hissing. Our cabin was on stilts in a drainage. The Shotgun was a piece of art. I was 3 and one bite from those rattlers would have killed me. There was a nest. We pulled out 8 Diamond back rattlers. We only ate 3. but I still have a beltbuckle.
Who wrote the song with lyrics “when will we ever learn”.
No banning and no controlling. It does not work.
Peace, love an dope do not make the world better if they are pretend. Hard strict regulation of humans is a failure in so many ways. Do not tell us citizens NO tell us how. Spend my tax dollars looking for answers and then provide them. Do not give me and mine a politician spewing concepts of control and banning.
I like the Susan B. Komann campaign to “ban” cancer. That is so silly it is sweet. I contribute. I like parents in a park that “control” their children, as if they could. One of my favorite classes to teach in snow ski racing was the “controlled crash”. One of my favorite things to watch disintegrate is Self Control, by weakness we are made strong.
This old fellow ain't bothering no one, but he sure hell does look like a politician.
Here is my simple request.
Please do not go to a rally that Supports bans and control. Please do not support a rally that suggests that the 2nd amendment does not come with civil obedience and social responsibility. We are not free unless we demand freedom. We will not be well lead as a nation unless we demand intellectual leadership. I am a no man. Join with me, not in saying no to discussion but in saying no to politicians who do not give us the respect to tell us what they know, or resign over what they do not.
