Hello fellow hunters and shooters and Merry Christmas. It's a time of year to be happy, but alot of folks are grief ridden at the moment due to the senseless acts of evil and violence committed by a young man in Connecticut. My heart goes out to the victims and families of the victims. I know their pain. I have lost a son, and I've watched my parents loose a son, my little brother......that pain is only understandable to those who also have lost children. This post is not meant in any way, shape or form to downplay the grief felt by these people. ......................................................................................................................... The New York Times front page portayed the Connecticut shooters mother as the culprit. Never mind the fact that she was shot dead in her home in her bed and in her pajamas while apparently still asleep. The guns used were then stollen from her!! It doesn't and wouldn't matter if they were under lock and key, because the killer could get the key pretty darn easily once his mom was out of the picture! Who knows how many felonies he committed before he ever stepped foot inside the school. It was a senseless, evil act of mass murder that is simply unimaginable to the normal mind of a normal person. Almost immediatly after the terrible and unimaginable tragedy, the anti-gun crowd began swelling and screaming. Even people who've usually been mostly silent in the wake of terrible crimes are getting on the wagon in support of gun and magazine bans after this most recent event. Rather than blaming the lack of a peaceful religion, or lack of virtues and values, or lack of morals and ethics of most young people these days; the gun grabbers imediately went for prohibition of "assault weapons" and high capacity magazines. Since when does a gun fire all by itself. The anti-gun crowd is focused only on their agenda of disarming America first and foremost. They will attempt to use any tragedy; no matter how unlikely it was, no matter how unimaginable the act was, their aim is to place blame on firearms and law abiding gun owners. Most media is on the side of the anti's, we never hear about the 100's of crimes prevented every single day by armed citizens or liscensed CC people. The mainstream media simply wont report it. The shooter could have easily taken the stollen car and hot rodded it through a playground during recess and killed just as many innocent little kids. He would have caused the same terror, the same loss of lives, the same pain to the families and community. However, with that being said, we can virtually gaurantee that not a single "gun grabber" would be attempting to blame the car in that case. Hell, someone could commit that same crime once a year for 10 years straight and they still wouldn't blame cars. There is a bigger reason for their screaming, and it's disarmament.............surely they cant be so stupid as to think the gun or type of gun is the problem. The school bombing in 1927 wasn't a result of someone getting ahold of a tommy gun, but even more people died there than in Connecticut. Where is God? God is no longer here, because it's become politically incorrect to speak of God. We might offend someone who calls their god by a different name!! Perhaps if some peaceful religion was instilled in more younger people, they would be too afraid to commit these insane acts of violence for fear of burning in hell for eternity! If you own or use a semi automatic of any sort, if you own or use a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds, if you own or use any kind of rifle or shotgun with a pistol grip, be warned.............the anti's are going to attempt to make them illegal. You can be sure they are signing every single petition they can get their hands on, and they're writting letters to Senators and Congress. If you want to continue to enjoy shooting your AR-15 or your semi-auto handguns, you might want to join the NRA, the CCRKBA, or the NAGR or a number of other pro 2nd ammendment organizations. We can't let the anti's be the only voice that is heard after the terrible tradgedy in Connecticut. Sign the Petitions and write your representatives, because our enemies are!! Wishing a Merry Chrismas and Happy New Year to all.
