The Main Stream Media spectacle has been in full swing following the mindless tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, fully exploiting the event as Chicago mayor Rahm Emmanuel described as not “letting a serious crisis to go to waste.” Yes, it was a tragedy, and it was serious, but the gun control rhetoric that followed was nothing more than pure political gamesmanship. What else could it be? Every every tragic event that may have included a firearm, regardless of fact or circumstance, elicits the same liberal-progressive response, ‘more stringent gun control’! Maybe what the political opportunists are really saying is ‘more citizen control.’ Face it, everything Adam Lanza did was already against the law. So, what new laws could possibly prevent another event? That’s right, no such laws are possible.
So what is all of this outrage aiming to do– disarm a public that is increasingly resentful of a ruling political class? Hmmm. Every despotic regime in history has either disarmed its people or attempted to disarm its people. That is, they took away the common citizen’s ability to fight back against the government. Oddly, that’s why the 2d Amendment to the US Constitution was written, to ensure the people ALWAYS will have the ability to take back the government from those who abuse power or over-reach their authority. There is a common saying found on vehicle bumper stickers, ‘When guns are outlawed, Only criminals will have guns!’ That includes governments living in fear of their people, who by Thomas Jefferson’s words are illegitimate and criminal.
There already exists a law for the situation in which this Nation finds itself. It is called the US Constitution. The Obama Administration should be spending less time trying to work around the constraints to government power, and spend more time executing the laws already in place. But, maybe that’s what the Administration really wants, unfettered power. To achieve that end, the government needs a disarmed public and changes to the Law of the Land!
