You know what’s coming. Look, the past events I’ve heard that are happening in the States are terrible, tragic and should never happen. However gang, just because a person cant get a gun doesn’t mean there wont be mass murderers. There will be murders with or without guns. This is like saying we blame cars because of drunk drivers killing people.
Did you know, on the SAME tragic, senseless day in Connecticut--in Beijing, China, 22 school children were stabbed by a "mentally deranged" man, armed with a knife. An officer said the attack, in the village of Chengping in Henan province, happened shortly before 8am on Friday, as students were arriving for classes.In March 2010, eight children were murdered in Nanping, Fujian province, by 41-year-old knifeman Zheng Minsheng. The attacker was executed a month later.Also in March 2010, 33-year-old Chen Kangbing injured 16 students and a teacher at Hongfu Primary School in Leizhou, Guangdong.In April 29 2010, 28 school children - mostly four-year-olds - were stabbed alongside two teachers and a security guard in Taixing, Jiangsu.On April 30, Wang Yonglai committed suicide after using a hammer to attack preschool children in Weifang, Shandong.Further attacks in the months and years following have left 11 children and four adults dead, and several more injured.
This is a debate that is already happening in America and will continue in these times. I’m a big fan of my rights, those rights granted under our constitution. If the constitution is restrained and altered in drastic ways, nothing in it is sacred to include your freedom of speech or anything else. Change the second amendment? Why not then change all of them, restrict them more? If one is allowed to be changed, all are up for game. I believe in the constitution, how it was originally written, so much I’ve dedicated well over double digit years sworn to defend it.
The events that have happened recently are tragic, however, if America was to “restrict” or alter your second amendment, right to bear arms like Australia where 99% of all guns were collected (bought back at a tune of $600 million cost to tax payers) in 1996/97, would the same attacker used a knife or hammer at the elementary school? I would say he would have use a golf club if he was determined. Evil plus determination when combined will complete or attempt to complete its mission of killing using a rock if need be. I have seen it first hand in Iraq and in Afghanistan.
After Australia’s “weapon “buy out” from the government, many were restricted in owning firearms. Do some still? Yes, they either have a specialized permit (they live on a farm) or must have a “justified reason to have a fire arm i.e. a farmer and uses the weapon to put animals down. Who has the guns for the most part in Australia? The criminals. In Australia, like many other places “elections have consequences” (wow) you can purchase a gun with permission from the authorities. Since the Australian authorities (think government) does not recognize self-defense as a legitimate reason for owning a gun, you cannot buy a gun for that purpose AND you cannot use it for that purpose either. Translation - a criminal can use a gun because they don't care about the law, but a law abiding citizens must allow themselves to be victimized by criminals. (example: if your wife is getting raped at gun point in your house and you shoot & kill the sob that is doing it, you are going to jail)
There are many facts thrown out that crime in Australia was never “reduced” after the 96/97 "buyback" but actually climbed (from the Australian Bureau of Statistics) after the Gov weapon“buy back”. You can read more about gun laws in Australia here.
Do guns owned by citizens prevent crimes?(yes, but you morethan likely didnt hear about them in our crybaby media)

Australia/America vs Israel (this is an Israeli teacher with a weapon) Have you heard of any Columbine High attacks or elementary school attacks in Israel? Cricket….cricket nope you sure haven’t. Now you know why.
You want kids to be safe? We put security guards in highschools and banks why not within other soft targets then? The above is just one simple example of your rights, but mainly gang, if we allow (or give away) our rights, then any of them can be taken away, at will. Second amendment, first amendment, it doesn’t matter. Expect “restrictions” to be handed down after this latest tragedy. What will America look like tomorrow?
The second we are unarmed we are likewise no longer free.
Time for a CGar!
