Yes, you heard right we have plenty of Gun Laws…
The problem is that they are not being enforced. That may sound bad, but it is the truth, none of the proposed Gun Laws, being considered in the Senate this week would have prevented any of the terrible tragedies, yet we have the media that parade these poor families in front of the America people so that everyone will support a law that is illegal and foolish, these grieving mothers and fathers, only want one thing their children back at home, it is a horrible tragedy that could have been prevented.
One bullet in one Gun held in the hands of a trained Security Guard, could have stopped this tragedy…
No children had to die, no adults had to die, all that was needed was a good man with one bullet in that one gun and none of this would have ever happened.
I want you to think about that for a moment, because this is something that you will not see in the media.
A news story that does not get the interest of the fools and evil tyrants in the media.
If the school had been protected by Armed Guards, none of this would have ever happened, why are court houses deemed worthy of protection and our children are not?
These parents are grieving.
So they are emotionally open to suggestion, it is a shame that we have a few people in the democratic party that is willing to do anything to usurp the constitution.
We all can remember things in the past that were once touted to be great things but later turned out to be false.
What about Cabbage, a while ago there was a report that eating cabbage could help your health then a few years after that they concluded that too much cabbage caused cancer…
Hmmm, remember how they trashed Eggs, telling how eggs were really bad for you, then came the incredible edible egg.
The thing is these days we see all kinds of odd things up for dinner, one of them right now that is just stupid is this notion that Gun Control Laws, will somehow stop criminals from getting and using guns…
That is just ignorant, stupid and several other things that most people just see as yet another reason why we need to protect our children just like they do those wrinkled old judges that sit in court rooms.
Well, imagine for a moment that what you see on TV is a carefully orchestrated, Chaos, that is designed to make you think one way or the other, here is a story that is very interesting not because it is a horrible news story, (sorry with today’s media its all about the bad news) check this out.
The following article appeared in the January 1, 1992 Los Angeles Times.
This is the story you saw on the evening news:
At lunch hour on Wednesday, Oct. 16, George Jo Hennard of Belton, Tex. smashed his Ford pickup through the plate glass doors of Luby’s cafeteria in Killeen, injuring some patrons immediately. While other patrons rushed toward the truck believing the driver was a heart-attack victim, Hennard calmly climbed out of his pickup, took out two 9-millimeter semi-automatic pistols, and started shooting people in the cafeteria’s serving line.
Hennard continued shooting for 10 minutes, reloading five times. One of his pistols jammed repeatedly, causing him to discard it. There would have been plenty of opportunity for any of the cafeteria’s customers or employees to return fire. None did because none of them were armed. Texas law forbids private citizens from carrying firearms out of their home or business. Luby’s employee’s manual forbids employees from carrying firearms.
Police officers were inside Luby’s within minutes. But before they were able to corner Hennard in the cafeteria’s restroom, where he turned his gun fatally on himself, Hennard had killed 15 women and 8 men, wounded 19 and caused at least five more to be injured attempting to flee.
The Killeen massacre was ready-made excitement for the media: a madman with a gun, lots of gruesome pictures. CBS News devoted an entire “48 Hours” Dan Rather report to it. Sarah Brady of Handgun Control Inc. capitalized on it in a nationally published column to call Congress cowardly for voting down more stringent gun laws the next day.
Now here’s a story you probably didn’t see:
Late at night on Tuesday, December 17, two men armed with recently-stolen pistols herded 20 customers and employees of a Shoney’s restaurant in Anniston, Ala., into the walk-in refrigerator, and locked it. Continuing to hold the manager at gunpoint, the men began robbing the restaurant.
Then one of the robbers found a customer who had hidden under a table and pulled a gun on him. The customer, Thomas Glenn Terry, legally armed with a .45 semi-automatic pistol, fired five shots into that robber’s chest and abdomen, killing him instantly.
The other robber, who was holding the manager at gunpoint, opened fire on Terry and grazed him. Terry returned fire, hitting the second robber several times and wounding him critically.
The robbery attempt was over. The Shoney’s customers and employees were freed. No one else was hurt.
Because Terry was armed, and used his gun to stop two armed robbers who had taken a restaurant full of people hostage, there was no drawn-out crisis, no massacre, no victims’ families for Dan Rather to interview. Consequently, the story hasn’t received much coverage.
Among those who rely on national news media for their view of the country, the bloody image of Luby’s Cafeteria is available to lend the unchallenged impression that guns in private hands serve only to kill innocent people. The picture of 20 hostages walking out of Shoney’s refrigerator unharmed, because a private citizen was armed that night, is not.
As we celebrate the bicentennial of the Bill of Rights, it’s worth noting that the Framers wrote the Second Amendment so the people’s defense would be in our own hands, and we wouldn’t have to rely on a “standing army” or “select militia” for our security. Though no police departments existed in America then, there’s no historical doubt that the Framers had considered centralized public defense, and considered it not merely ineffective, but itself dangerous to public safety. Recent vigilante-type police attacks, such as the beating of Rodney King, lend credence.
Yet, it’s fashionable to relegate constitutional protections to the dustbin of history. Judges sworn to defend the Constitution ignore its clear provisions, as do legislators. Virtually every major organ of society – both political parties, the media, the American Bar Assn., the ACLU – urges them to do so.
Today’s “consensus reality” asserts that private firearms play no effective role in the civic defense, and that firearms must be restricted to reduce crime. The media repeat these assertions as a catechism, and treat those who challenge them as heretics.
Yet, we have before us an experiment showing us alternative outcomes. In one case, we have a restaurant full of unarmed people who rely on the police to save them. The result is 23 innocent lives lost, and an equivalent number wounded. In the second case, we have one armed citizen on the scene and not one innocent life lost.
How can the choice our society needs to make be any clearer?
It’s time to rid ourselves of the misbegotten idea that public safety can be achieved by unilateral disarmament of the honest citizen, and realize that the price of public safety is, like liberty, eternal vigilance. We can tire ourselves in futile debates on how to keep guns out of the wrong hands. Or we can decide that innocent lives deserve better than to be cut short, if only we, as a society, will take upon ourselves the civic responsibility of defending our fellow citizens, as Thomas Glenn Terry did in Alabama.
My account of Thomas Glenn Terry’s actions in this article was based on an Alabama newspaper account. I later interviewed Terry for a weekly radio program I was hosting and discovered that the account was mistaken on several points.
Postal clerk Terry was finishing a late-night dinner with his wife when the robbers came in and took over the restaurant. Terry hid his .45 Colt Government Model under his sweater, not seeing any immediate opportunity to use it. Terry’s wife was captured with the other customers and herded off to the cooler, where one of the robbers proceeded to collect wallets and jewelry.
Terry did not hide under a table; he had separated himself from the other customers and managed to get to a back door in the Shoney’s to see if it was open so he could escape and call the police. The door was chained shut. At that point one of the robbers discovered him and when the robber drew on him, Terry pulled his own handgun from under his sweater and returned fire, incapacitating this robber, who ultimately survived. The second robber heard the exchange of gunfire and also drew on Terry; it was the gun fight between Terry and this second robber which resulted in the robber running out to the parking lot, where he died from his wounds. It was at this point that Terry told the store manager to phone the police, informing them that an armed customer was present; Terry then proceeded to the cooler and released his wife and the other customers.
Both robbers whom Terry shot had previous armed robberies on their record, and one had murdered a motel clerk just a few days earlier. A third robber escaped as soon as Terry exchanged gunfire with the first robber.
The only national media outlet to cover this incident as news, just two months after the Killeen restaurant massacre, was the Christian Science Monitor. -JNS
There are so many reasons why Gun Control does not work, just look at all the large cities that have strict and probably unconstitutional gun control laws, these large cities have more Violent Crimes, More Murders and the weapon of choice? [kc_heading_pac_6_headline_1 size=”48″ color=”#cc0000″ ]Guns..[/kc_heading_pac_6_headline_1]
It took 92.5 million pounds of earth last year to cover the graves of America’s shooting victims – 619 tons for Oakland alone and 248 tons for San Francisco. While many of the murder weapons have been counted and traced, we will never know the tonnage of ammunition bought and used, and never know the buyers.
Notice how they played with the facts here, they talk about how many pounds of earth, but forgot to say that these cities have tough gun control laws…
What next, shall we regulate garden shears?
“At this time,” said ATF spokeswoman Ginger Colbrun, “unless there’s an executive order, ammunition is not regulated. There is no tracking system,” as there is for firearms. There is neither a record of purchase nor a background check, as there is for the gun itself (barring sales on Craigslist or at gun shows). There is no tagging system to trace the cartridges’ or slugs’ origins after a shooting, no tooling like a gun’s serial number.
That worked really well for Chicago last year and this year too, so really what is up with these people?
The truth is that there are not enough police, there are not enough private security firms, there are not even enough of our own national guard forces to protect all the people that live in this country.
I know that may sound a little scary, but it has been true since the beginning of time and your not going to change that at all.
In fact your never going to change that it has been that way because there are more people on this earth than there are responsible citizens, you cannot create enough laws to make someone who is evil good.
That is simply just not ever going to happen.
If you ever want to find yourself in a position of safety, take a course on how to use your weapons, because without that you could find your self in a position where you have protection but do not know how to safely use it.
