(DISCLAIMER: I LOVE my God & my Guns, just in case you don’t catch my sarcasm or watch the videos ;)
I can no longer hold my silence, the violence has got to STOP! It frankly comes down to people having guns, and the solution is we need to get rid of them and create more Gun-Free Zones! The 2nd amendment was written so long ago they didn’t understand or foresee what people would do with guns today. I believe our Founding Fathers would understand if we stripped the constitution of “the right to keep and bear Arms” to help make this country a safer place to live. I know people enjoy hunting, competing in gun competitions, collecting them for a hobby, or whatever other excuses they have to own them, but I think they can give that up for the greater good.
Do your part and follow along with schools, churches, and hospitals to protect you and the ones you love by setting up Gun-Free Zones. This video explains it best:
Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the country and has helped to make the work environment less hostile for criminals. Maybe you can learn from their example and do the same. Better yet, hold your own “Fast and Furious” experiment and give your guns to thugs so the cops can catch them (just remember to put a tracking device on them this time). Take a listen to this poor victim explain how fearful he is to even go to work, because people are choosing to exercise their right to own guns:
Even if you don’t agree with getting rid of all guns, at least agree that getting rid of assault weapons and extra capacity magazines is a must. Most women are a good enough shot that if there was someone assaulting them they could get the job done in 3 bullets or less, regardless if the criminals have 30+ rounds in their guns.
Just this week I had my car window smashed in, my purse taken, my identity stolen, and thousands of dollars worth of purchases put on my credit cards. I am so grateful I didn’t walk up on the sweet boy who did this to me, I would have hated for him to get hurt. I’m sure he was in a desperate situation and doesn’t plan on violating anyone else or their property again. This probably was his first crime too, he only managed to break my window, snatch the purse, get to Wal-Mart, buy gas, and max-out all the credit cards in less than 30 minutes.
Who would want guns in their home anyway? I know so many of you have children and it would be very tragic if any of them accidentally got hurt. Even though there are fingerprint safes, gun locks, vaults, and numerous other ways to keep them from the kids, it just takes too much work, plus it would require being a responsible parent.
Many women are often more vulnerable and easier for a criminal to take advantage of, but in most cases the criminals understand this and leave you alone. If they don’t, I’m sure whatever physical, sexual, or emotional abuse they inflict upon you and your children can be fixed with a little therapy and some time.
So get rid of your guns and make this country a safer place by stopping the violence.
OR… I have an even crazier idea. Maybe, doing the opposite will make all the difference…
