I believe it’s every Americans right to arm themselves especially in a world so inclined towards violence. I believe also that we need to use the laws that we already have on the books to make sure that people are safe from gun violence.
I think it’s sexist to tell a woman to use a whistle in the event that she’s about to be assaulted. Women especially should be able to conceal carry a gun as an alternative to the whistle method that anti-Second Amendment would want. Their emotional plea for a gun free society is selfish in that it establishes that since they don’t have gun nor need one that no one else should. Now, there are those who seem anti-gun, but aren’t. Those folks simply want gun laws that protect people from gun violence. In fact, my wife has thought (more so lately with the insanity we’re seeing around the world and in our country) about going through the lengthy process of getting a gun and I can’t blame her. I absolutely support her in doing so. When I can’t be with her at all times, I believe it’s imperative that she keep herself safe whatever way possible. She’s not dumb nor irresponsible so it goes without saying that she would do fine owning a gun.
Those who wish to limit access to guns want to blatantly trample on the Constitution, be my guest because I can guarantee that a majority of Americans are pro-Second Amendment especially witnessing the horrors of the 20th Century when fascist/communist governments disarmed their people in order to have absolute control over the people. What limits should be placed on gun ownership should be a dialog opened up between those want to limits gun ownership and those who don’t. It needs to be civil and without condescending remarks. Without this criteria in place nothing will happen that will appeal to both sides of the aisle.
The raging topic of today is of course the whole millennia long conflict between Jews and Muslims in the guise of a territorial dispute. I don’t support either side emphatically. To those who will complain that I lack a heart need to understand that their support is indirectly going towards the elitists who control the situation. The people have no say in what their leaders do. The common folk of Israel and Palestine are constantly ignored for the bigger objective of genocide that the IDF and Hamas want to conduct on each other. The pro-Palestine folks are just as bad and Nazi-esque as their pro-Israel counterparts since it all devolves into hateful rhetoric that is not conducive to the establishment of peace in that area of the world. Instead, fuel is thrown on flames fanned by zealotry on such a massive scale that even the Nazis themselves would be shamed.
So, I have no heart because I refuse to partake in supporting either brutal regime who ignore the citizens of each state? No, those who take a side in this conflict without thinking absolutely of the people caught in the crossfire are the heartless ones. If the pro-Israel or pro-Palestine folks actually were thinking about the common people they wouldn’t be taking either side but rather the side of humanity. This is a conflict that doesn’t need a national/religious side, but a side for humanity. Everything else is just an illusion that keeps people separated and easily controlled. If a polytheistic heathen such as myself can figure this out than the monotheists in this region can grasp it as well. However, it takes only common sense to know this, not religious persuasion nor political ideology.
So, to the pro-Palestine and pro-Israel folks, get a clue or shut up. If you aren’t on the side of humanity you are simply an evil, selfish creature that doesn’t deserve to be included in the human race.
