Mass murders in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas Saturday have sparked new cries for gun control.
Tragic mass murders aren’t an excuse to take away the people’s only means to defend the nation from tyranny. All rights afforded by the US constitution exist on the foundation of the Second Amendment. Shall not be infringed. Period.
PFC Glendon Oakley, a good guy with a gun, saved scores of lives in El Paso, Texas during the Walmart shooting. Guns are a means to an end for maniacs. If they didn’t have guns, they’d use everything and anything else they could: knives, vehicles, acid, etc.
Gun control would prevent absolutely no violence and would only serve to make everyone more vulnerable to criminals, maniacs, and tyrannical government. Laws don’t stop criminals; that’s why they’re criminals. Murder is already illegal.
The only one who you can depend on to protect you is you.
