In my not-so-humble opinion gun control is a steady hand and common sense. No amount of legislation or executive orders can deter the intentions and actions of criminals. It amounts to disarming the law-abiding public and giving a tactical advantage to the SOBs that want to harm you and your family.
There are people out there that give a silver lining to this dark cloud of injustice.
Linn County, Oregon, Sheriff Tim Mueller, in his letter dated Monday, said politicians are “attempting to exploit the deaths of innocent victims” by supporting laws that would harm law-abiding Americans. The sheriff said he took an oath to support the Constitution, and laws preventing citizens from owning certain semi-automatic firearms and ammunition magazines would violate their rights.
The president’s push is drawing resistance from Republicans in Congress. Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, is now vowing to try to impeach Obama if he takes any action via executive order.
He called the plan to implement some controls administratively “an unconstitutional and unconscionable attack on the very founding principles of this republic.”
“I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including, but not limited to, eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment,” Stockman said.
There are two guys I fully support in this action. Others like New York’s Republican held state senate see no problem with the bill. Really? Use common sense, not emotional blather then trying to solve national problems such as the killing of children. I know it’s hard, but come on, people.
Such laws will only bring about more crime. Look at prohibition. Alcohol was made illegal and we saw crime go through the roof. Ever see the movie “Lawless?” It’s based on a true story.
See what happens? Criminals take over and everyone gets screwed… except the criminals. Here’s an idea? How about actually enforcing existing laws before making up new ones.
