UN Sculpture Reveals Intention
Thank you and your colleagues for upholding the Second Amendment!
Do not believe for a moment that the battle is over!
While background checks may help slightly, those who seek to engage in criminal activity do not obtain weapons through legal means. And, if they do not yet have a criminal record but intend to perpetrate a crime, the person obtains the weapon while still considered to be a law abiding citizen.
Fact: Communities that have more relaxed gun laws have fewer violent crimes.
Where did Adam Lanza get the pistol he used to kill adults and children at Sandy Hook elementary? From his law abiding parents. If a background check was performed, would his record reflect his mental status?
Every effort to make it more difficult for criminals to obtain guns didn't stop Dylan Quick, who has no psychiatric record, from stabbing 14 people at Lone Star Community College last week.
"... a sword never kills anybody; it is a tool in the killer's hand." (Seneca 'the younger').
Law abiding Americans do not wish to use weapons against their fellow citizens - criminals do. When Congress learns how to remove guns and other weapons from the criminals' hands alone, it will have done a noble deed.
Any other legislation is corrupt at its core and empowers the government over the citizens it serves and is contrary to the ideals for which our nation is supposed to stand.
Remember what Benjamin Franklin said, "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
We will never be 'safe'. It is only an illusion. The government is using this illusion to empower itself over the citizens and it must cease, immediately!
"Government is not reason, it is not eloquent, it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." George Washington
