There are so many issues that are encroaching onto this nation as we head into 2013.
Hurricane Sandy, Fiscal Cliff, Sandy Hook, all brought to fore a realization of various weaknesses that are plaguing the USA.
I, personally, am still unemployed, going on 3 months now,so I have a few issues to deal with as well.
But I am only an individual. The nation is in peril, as the biggest conflagration is not the economy or entitlements, but “Gun Control”. Sandy Hook Elementary saw 20 innocent 10yr old kids slaughtered, along with 6 adults and the killer. 27 souls were sent to the afterlife by the insanely idiotic murderer.
Some people think that the best answer is to attack the weapon that is the scourge of incidents such as this. Some people think there are 3.75 MILLION assault weapons here in the US. These same people articulate the position that the it would be smart for the country to “buy back” these evil black guns (hell we can charge the makers as racist thus these crimes are hate crimes and…..). What they DON’T ‘articulate’ is that besides the BILLIONS it would cost to execute the policy, the sheer ANGER from the passage of a law of this type would cause untold anarchy in the streets and in DC proper.
Liberals have this mental ability to IGNORE the consequences of their proposed actions. The examples would fill up this blog for months.
In every example, unintended consequences run amok and the result is more and more cash to improve the condition. Instead of thinking the policy through, they see the emotional solution and discount logic.
Banning guns has never worked in any society it has been tried. Australia, the UK, others have seen their gun crime rise… Which is hard to consider since each is an ISLAND nation. The OTHER possible eventuality are the nations where it worked TOO well and in most instances fatal to it’s citizens. Germany, USSR, Cuba, China, etc. each proved that confiscated weapons and disarmed citizens were paths to totalitarian rule and mass graves.
