Many thousands of words have been written and spoken about guns and gun control in the ten days since mass murderer, Adam Lanza, slaughtered 20 children and 6 adults in an elementary school in Connecticut. Liberals have not only made this a debate on guns and the second amendment, but oddly enough have injected race into it as well. It really is spell-bounding to watch supposedly intelligent people make complete fools of themselves, but that is what those on the Left do on a daily basis in this country and around the world.
Wayne Lapierre, president of the National Rifle Association, was ridiculed by Liberals for suggesting that we place armed security in our schools to protect the children of this country, just as we do banks and their customers. The clarity of Mr. Lapierre's statement, when he said the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, is the kind of clarity that the left abhors. Liberals look at everything in shades of grey, with no right and wrong or good and evil. Every issue is expressed by Liberals in nuanced tones that belie a certain intellectual superiority that convinces people they must agree or suffer the humiliation of being thought of as a rube. So even though restricting the access and use of fire arms by law abiding citizens will only embolden the criminals among us, the Left's goal of tearing down the Constitution and consolidating their power is furthered by more gun-control.
Liberals look at the acts committed by individuals who suffer from isolated mental or emotional issues, not as problems to be solved on an individual basis, but as opportunities to expand government and increase bureaucratic budgets. This can not be accomplished if they accept as truth clarified statements like the one Wayne Lapierre made. That's why it is more supportive of the Lefts agenda to assign an almost drug-like quality to guns. In the minds of Liberals, when people possess a gun, they fall under its spell and do things they would not normally do. This allows the Left to shift blame from the individuals acts, which hold no ability for them to restrict others freedoms, and to lay the blame on the gun. Liberals can thusly make all of society responsible for the acts committed by an individual, and thus the society must bear the brunt of the punishment.
Yes, many thousands of words have been spoken and written recently in the aftermath of mass murder committed by one evil man. But the most important 14 words ever written on the subject were done so over two hundred years ago and they are, "...the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
