There is so much confusion over these gun debates, one would be hard pressed to understand exactly what’s going on. On the one hand, there’s the insanity of Dianne Feinstein’s assault weapons ban. On the other hand, there’s Minority House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi who has always on a different page, regardless of the issue.
Never-the-less, the Obama administration hasn’t been truthful on anything and as such, if assault rifles are banned, that will be the beginning of handguns bans.
“I’m not a sixth grader,” Feinstein responded to Senator Ted Cruz’s direct question to her on the Second Amendment. “Senator, I’ve been on this committee for 20 years. I was a mayor for nine years. I walked in, I saw people shot. I’ve looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. I’ve seen the bullets that implode. In Sandy Hook, youngsters were dismembered. Look, there are other weapons.”
While it may be true, she’s not a sixth grader, but her train of thought is elementary. The Second Amendment guarantees gun rights and as such, guns will always be a part of our country, one way, or another. Legally, or illegally.
There are two sides to this debate and if both are considered, gun debates are a complete waste of time, energy and taxpayers’ dollars.
Over the weekend in Houston, there were two incidents involving guns that left one suspect, a Houston police officer and several victims hospitalized.
One the one hand, perhaps road rage led to a crash, a shooting, ‘one person taken into custody, another still wanted and three people taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.’
Clearly, this is a strong case against guns being the hands of the wrong people, but it’s a constitutional guaranteed right. We are ‘all’ entitled to the right of gun ownership and the Second Amendment guarantees that right.
On the other hand, still in Houston, a Houston police officer was wounded by a suspect after a traffic stop. The suspect is dead, the officer is hospitalized, but this is a case of both, a gun in the wrong hands, as well as a gun in the right hands, which are both, constitutionally protected rights.
