EDITORIAL:         Is the Left Honestly Trying to Protect Us from Guns?


The insane have been on the street ever since government closed the asylums and turned them loose in the name of saving money. Now, hyped by media promotion, they are shooting us in public places. Progressive politicians unanimously push to reduce the availability of gun ownership to protect us from this danger. Two observations come to mind:

  1. Most of the attention seems focused upon the guns rather than upon the gunners. Since the overwhelming majority of civilian owned firearms never harm anyone, that seems illogical and inefficient.
  2. Senator Schumer (D who is a leader of this charge is also proposing to outlaw our possession of bullet proof body armor, though he is doing that with less publicity. That seems strange from someone trying to protect us from gunshots, doesn’t it?

We note that the Second Amendment was intended to prevent government from disarming the people to ease imposing its will as all governments have been wont to do. A  protection against tyranny. We note too how seldom that point comes up in discussions these days. We guess that government run public schools aren’t big on pushing that recommended “Eternal vigilance” recommended to us by our forebears …
