JUST A REMINDER: National Life Without Guns Is A Beautiful Thing, Isn’t It?
Vietnam was all right. No problem. So was the covert war in Nicaragua and El Salvador. Ditto for Iraq I and II and Afghanistan. All necessary and proper and good. Lives destroyed? Who cares?
The US governmentâ€™s possession of weapons and their use? Well, of course they needed all those weapons. How else could the wars be fought?
Guns in hands of government are a completely different issue than guns in the hands of citizens. You do see that, donâ€™t you? Government knows what to do with guns. Kill people. Lots of people. Citizens with guns are clueless and have to be dealt with.
US-government 24/7 surveillance of every US citizen? Again, no problem. No indication of bad intent at all. Itâ€™s just protection against terrorism.
So you see, the whole rationale for the 2nd Amendmentâ€”that Americans need to protect themselves against a tyrannical central governmentâ€”goes right out the window.
That was easy.
And in case youâ€™re wondering why our commander-in-chief doesnâ€™t pinpoint the areas of the country where the major gun violence is taking place, since he wants to reduce that violence, itâ€™s because he doesnâ€™t wish to offend anyone. Heâ€™s merely being polite. An admirable quality.
Donâ€™t worry your pretty little head about it.
Now, recently weâ€™ve seen children suspended and expelled from school, and weâ€™ve seen a school lockdown or two, because of the presence of a Nerf gun or a gun made out of fingers or the word â€śpow.â€ť This makes perfect sense.
We all know imaginary guns are the gateway drug to real guns and real guns are a guarantee of death. So nip the situation in the bud. Eliminate all thoughts of guns. Slap the fingers of the finger guns.
