The latest Hero of the Second Amendment, Curtis Reeves, gunned down texting bad guy Chad Oulson when their argument reached the stage of Loud Voice and Red Face. Just as the NRA wants; someone disrespects you? BLAM! Some elderly alzheimer patient flouting your Commands? BLAM! Somebody using your driveway to turn around? BLAM! Someone texting during the previews? BLAM!
Of course, there have been Two School Shootings and hundreds more shot across the Country in the week since Reeves murdered Oulson.
In the wake of the Florida Movie texter murder, the NRA, ALEC and Gun Lunatics are not pausing to reconsider their ideas but are pushing forward so that Total Unrestrained and Unrestricted Gun Violence is the "Law" of the Land.
The NRA's paid Republicans are now pushing for Warning Shots and Aggressive Weapon Displays and Flagrant Flagging to be lawfully protected activities in Florida. The ignorance of what bullets actually do when fired just proves again that Gun Lunatics, who routinely accuse gun control advocates of not understanding weapons, are the ones who don't understand the tools in their possession.
Radio Host and former Faux News token liberal Alan Colmes recently interviewed South Carolina Senate candidate Lee Bright and asked Bright if Teachers should have "machine guns". Bright responded that a teacher "protecting school grounds" should carry whatever "she" can.
When asked specifically if that meant "machine guns", Bright responded, "The Second Amendment is pretty clear. It says the right to carry arms should not be infringed... I don’t see how the government can regulate it."
The levels of gasp-inducing ignorance exhibited by Gun Lunatics posing as Legislators is frightening. Bright is so encapsulated in his epistemic closure he can't "see how the government can regulate it" [i.e. guns]. Well, Mister Bright the Constitution is Not a Suicide Pact. Just because you want teachers patroling schools with Squad Automatic Weapons doesn't mean WE, the PEOPLE do.
But, this is the way Gun Maniacs always frame the issue. Second Amendment! Freedom! Protecting Schools! Ask them for details about where Teachers weapons will be stored during the school day, what level of training a teacher will undergo and whom exactly will pay, how many clearing barrels and gun safes the school will have, what kind of sling the gym teacher will use since he can't have a belt holster with his athletic shorts and how many "accidental discharge" casaualties are acceptable to the NRA and Pro-Gun Violence Republicans and you'll get no answer other than an angry denunciation of Gun-Grabbers!!!
But, this is what the NRA wants. They want people shooting and murdering each other with Guns. They want people going everywhere armed, ready to shoot at whatever goes bump in the night. Be it their 14 year old step-daughter or the mad delusions of their unconscious minds. They want a Nation consumed by Unrestricted Gun Violence.
