GUNS KILL, PEOPLE DON’T?

I am sure that we can all agree on one thing: GUNS KILL, PEOPLE DON’T.

If I have seen it a hundred times I have seen it once. An innocent guy is walking down the street at 2:00 am. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, a handgun jumps out from an alley and into the hand of the innocent bystander. Those handguns are agile little creatures. Before he even knows it, the innocent bystander has a gun in his hand pointed at another guy. The gun seems to have a magnetic force which causes the guy’s finger to move onto the trigger and pull. And another guy is dead due to the evil force of a handgun.

Of course the guy who pulled the trigger tries to tell the authorities that he didn’t do it on purpose. “Apparently”, he says, “the gun pulled its own trigger and made me the villain. I am going to have to sue the manufacturer of the gun because it is to blame for the death of that other guy.”

Interestingly, handguns seem to never try this trick with people who have trained with handguns and who have a legitimate permit to carry a handgun. Apparently handguns know that they should not fool around with those people. That is because those with a carry permit are in charge of their guns, not the other way around.

But if you are a person without a legitimate carry permit, I would be very careful because those guns will seek you out and get you in some serious trouble.

The Villain or the Victim?

OF COURSE, THIS IS SATIRE. I am sick of people blaming guns for violence. All violent deaths are tragic. But, every time some lunatic kills a bunch of people the gun control morons come out and try to eliminate our second amendment rights. They talk of their belief that we should ban automatic weapons. Guess what, already done. The government has banned the sale and possession of fully automatic weapons (except by those with a special federal permit) for many years. These morons don’t understand guns and don’t understand the difference between an automatic and a semiautomatic weapon. And if they do understand it makes their case stronger, in their own minds, to say automatic as opposed to semiautomatic.

In our increasingly socialistic society, guns are made the villains but the people who fire them are generally seen as victims. I hope enough Americans will get their heads out and see the truth. Morons who fire the guns illegally are the villains. Lets manage that problem and stop picking on those innocent guns.

About Doc

I am a Psychologist and a veteran of the Vietnam War. I work with abused children and with agencies which try to both prevent abuse and to empower those who have been abused. I feel strongly about child abuse and take every action I can to prevent it and to support the children I work with who have experienced it. I also feel strongly about politics and especially the course being taken by our nation. I believe that America is at a critical point in its development. How we answer the challenges from Islamic fascists and from our own internal enemies in the media, government, and academia will determine America’s future and the future of our children. I believe that if we don’t take the correct course now, America will go the way of Europe and that we will not reach the potential set out by our founding fathers. I believe that it is now getting serious. My gravitar is from "Darkman".

    I know what you mean. I walked past a gun shop a couple of weeks ago and the guns were calling out to me like Sirens from Greek Mythology “pick me up, pick me up. I promise not to kill everyone.” I, being experienced with the lies that these metal machines can tell, quickly covered my ears and ran across the street away from their tempting promises. I say ban them all before they kill every child, woman, and elderly person.

    The purpose of the Second Amendment is that we can protect ourselves from an oppressive government…..not hunt….not target shoot………not to relax. It’s not a tradition being passed down from father to son, as our “glorious leader” proclaims. It’s a “responsibility” to stand against tyranny and fascism in our own government.
