A burglar broke into an apartment at 1am and raped an 11 year old boy TWICE ! The burglar 35 year old Carlos Colono then attacked the boys father with a knife almost decapatating the man , slashed 11times on his throat and losing half his blood supply. The boy then call 911 telling them his father is dead. All the intruder was armed with was a knife. What would of happened if the father had taken Joe Bidens advice and bought a double barreled shot gun ? The clean up team would be wiping a gray jelly like substance off of the walls of the apartment. Mr. Colono has also been charged with raping two women in 2008. But remember Obama doesn't want you to have guns.
This argument goes nowhere. The constitution gives us the right to bear arms based upon forces that will attempt to seize our govt. The law was written when we were at war with England and potential for other European countries. It does not encompass our sociological problems with people armed with automatic weapons randomly shooting elementary school children. What we have is a major sociological problem. Therefore...laws can and should be changed. I believe in the Constitution, but common sense tells us that it can be changed. Think about it....if we ran the good ole USA strictly by the Constitution as it was created originally....without amendments....where would we be today.
".if we ran the good ole USA strictly by the Constitution as it was created originally....without amendments....where would we be today"
We'd be better off most likely!!!! Our constitution has served us well, the people who hate our Constitution and our founding principles are haters of American freedom, liberty and limited Govt - everything that made America GREAT in the first place!
More kids would be alive today if a teacher there had a concealed handgun in their possession. Stupid liberals dont get it - they want more cops, but dont realize that legal concealed carry is like increasing the police force by 10X. When law-abiding citizens are armed, the criminals fear for their lives. crime is lower.
It should be ruled unconstitutional to post "gun-free (or weapon free) zone" signs on schools since they are in U.S. territory. If there is only a chance that a staff or teacher will have a gun to defend their students, it can keep psyco-murders out. But organizations like the teacher's union, AMA, and NAACP seem to have power that exceeds the rule of law.
Did you know that the Newtown shooter's mother had a chestful of guns ? I don't remember the exact statistics, but a LOT of poeple get killed with their own guns. If this boy's father had a shotgun, chances are the burglar could have come armed with an assault rifle... there is no end to this line of reasoning.
But he didn't bring a assault rifle , he would have brought a knife to a gun fight. I'll keep my guns , and you can hope the rest of your life you're not attacked / robbed/ murdered/ raped/ . It's just so much more easy just to kill the guy. Don't worry about having PTSD , half the country already has it. I wish you the best of luck , stay safe.
