America – you’ve lost

22 Feb


You are being controlled, the ‘supposed’ greatest country of the western world, of the ‘free’ world ….. isn’t. 

It’s not your evangelical pastors, or your charismatic Congresspersons, or your gregarious Govenors, or well spoken Senators, or any of your elected officers.  It’s not your law enforcement personnel.  It’s not your civil rights activists or your media hungry celebrities.  It’s not big business, the Apple’s, Google’s, Starbuck’s or oil barons.

Before you get ready to jump to a passioned defence, I don’t even mean your handheld pistols or various animal hunting rifles.  

You legally put ‘military grade assault’ weapons in the hands of anyone (except convicted felons) ….. just because.

Even your Second Amendment states that the militia should be ‘well regulated’ but the non-militia can do as they please with their weapon of choice somehow exonerated of consequential responsibility (except their own moral compass).  Any attempt to bring any form of control or conditions, (to some even a waiting period) is seen as an infringement of right.  

The problem is not numbers, nor ages, oddly it is not even the gun. There are those who will quote statistics around deaths caused by drugs, alcohol, smoking, driving under the influence or texting while driving, heart attacks, strokes, diabetic conditions, air travel, swimming, all of which have ‘well regulated’ laws surrounding them, but the g-thing that’s in a completely different category of mind set.

So America, best trade in your hummers for armoured personnel carriers, don your flak jackets and helmets, up the g-s-w aspect of your medical insurance as it will never change, he/she/ze/it/they with the biggest more powerful weapon with a disregard for any life because they are aggrieved at something trivial will win.

Is there an answer? Of course there is, but no one will like it or agree it and by the time anything is discussed, decided, debated and passed to law, there will be a different president who can blame all the previous incumbents, a change of faces in the Senate and Congress …… and another few thousand graves filled.

    Totally agree. It’s enraging. It’s frustrating. It’s frightening. Only heaven knows where it will end.

    Oh Anne-Marie, the distortions the delusional arguments are like those I have heard from other hedonistic, deluded, felons. “Empowerment only comes with the use of force and fear by the good guys against the bad guys”. Representatives of the people who are selling themselves for the support of the filthy lucre from the sales of those arms… It’s blood money, it is disgusting.

    I totally agree with you….in addition, there is their President who has sold himself to the NRA, as have his politicians, and who demonstrates all the distorted and delusional traits that ring alarm bells. I echo Gilly’s crie-de-couer.

      In an informed debate else where with a friend, we came to realise that this is a multi-layered problem. It’s getting into the hearts of the desperate who grab a gun to shoot up a school (apparently one was thwarted as he was overheard saying he was going to kill the lot because the teacher told him to take off his headphones and then confiscated them for the lesson duration), the hearts of the honest gun owner, the separation of types of guns and reasons for ownership, as well as legislation.

      Highly complicated issue.
