Take SEATS!!! Settle down,Troops!
This is going to be another chapter in the continuing story of
"Stupidity is Endless".
For those of you who are 2nd Amendment supporters, you may be excused.
You already have an "A", in this class. If you wish to take notes to
educate the un-informed, the brain-dead or the brain-less (can't brain-wash
them 'cause you'd have to find it, first) please feel free to stay & good luck.
First the "Dumb" : People who genuinely believe that the answer to
crime is more anti-gun laws, in spite of clear evidence that only
law-abiding citizens will obey the laws, like the lady in Texas, who
had left her pistol in her car (like a good law-abiding citizen) &
watched her parents killed (& was, also, shot) by the guy who drove
his truck through the plate-glass window of the restaurant (in
violation of several laws) and proceeded to shoot a whole lot of the
customers & staff (in violation of several other laws) & she said
She became a legislator and campaigned,
successfully, for the "Shall Issue Concealed Carry Law".
Personally, I have supported this, over the "Right to Carry Law",
because it (supposedly) restricts the ability to go armed to people
who have been checked out.
I have begun to question my position, in light of Vermont's universal
"Right to Carry, Concealed, or Openly" law and their low crime-rate.
Sane, intelligent people don't argue with success. That is behavior
that is found in lefties, ultra-liberals & other people who are either
mentally deficient or driven by an agenda that DOES NOT have our best
interests at its core.
Now the "Dumber": People who place signs on their homes to the effect
that: "There are NO FIREARMS in this house!" This is an open
invitation to robbery, assault or worse. What can you say? Did these
people walk around, in school (deliberately) wearing a "Kick me" sign?
If so, maybe they were kicked where their (alleged) brain
was. Maybe they suffered a trauma that left them brain-dysfunctional.
Pray for them to recover, before one of their family suffers.
Now, we come to "Down-right stupid": These are the folks, who (as a
part of an organization, business or private) establish a policy
or post a sign saying "Possession of a fire-arm, on these premises (by
other than Police) is illegal."
They totally ignore the fact that, reading such a sign, or knowing
that such a policy exists simply assures a criminal, terrorist or
other crazy that chances are very good that they can kill people,
break things &/ or terrorize at will, with no, armed opposition.
They, totally, ignore the fact that most concealed carry permit
holders have been subjected to an EXTENSIVE background check, of the
type that those of us who have had security clearances, in the military (or
held any other type of government job) experienced.
Even if the permit was granted on a "personal knowledge" basis,
someone had put their reputation, career & personal assets on the line
to say, "This person is no threat, to the public & should be allowed
to go armed".
I could see, possibly, amending the sign to read (weapon possession)
"...(by other than Police or concealed weapon permit holders) is illegal."
That would give another charge to be levied at the criminal who would
attempt illegal activities and would, most likely, be "taken down" by
a legally armed citizen. However, crime records indicate that, where
the possibility of an armed citizen exists, the criminal will
(usually) go where people are stupid and prohibit such protection.
It is my FERVENT hope that anyone who is injured during criminal
activity, in any place that has such a policy, will SUE THE PANTS off
the owners. If you belong to such an organization or business, RAISE HE77
about it. Maybe you, as an insider, can get through to them. Print this column
& post it on the bulletin board, or enter it into the minutes of a meeting.
Giving credit where credit is due (to anyone who has any brain activity
such as people who are not totally immersed in their agenda, so as to
be unable to respond to recent developments) I note that some colleges
(not sure if any universities) are beginning a move to allow
"Concealed Weapon" licensees to carry, on campus. I believe that this
is in response to the campus violence that has killed or injured so
I, also, believe that, by far, the worst culprits in
the idiocy of "ban all guns" are not the average liberals, who are (in
the main) good, sincere people who have been lied to by the
ultra-liberals & leftists who have infiltrated and polluted the
movement, like Pellosi, Boxer, Feinstein, Schumer, Reid and, yes, Obama.
I applaud the rank & file liberals (especially in education) who have
rebelled against the pseudo-intelligentsia, who (unfortunately) seem
to be in control of the system and such rebellion may exact a price. I
hope they can resist the pressure that will, surely, be brought to bear
and I & all of my Troops will keep them in prayer. I won't even have
to make that an order.
I know a lot of permit holders &, to a man (or woman) they would not
allow anyone to be assaulted, in their presence, without a serious
effort to prevent it. I would trust my life to any of them.
If I, on the other hand, choose not to go armed (away from my
property) because it has become cumbersome, to me, I still bless them
and will continue to support them and the "...right to keep and BEAR
arms..." (emphasis added) until I go to answer to my maker.
God bless y'all, the armed law-abiding citizen, our Troops in harm's
way and above all, God Bless America!!!
Dis-MISSED !!! Sgt Mack,out, closing station & leaving the air.
