the elephant

africa, african bush elephant, elephant
the elephant
in the room
is being ignored by a lot of folks

they are just nibbling around the corners
eating the elephants peanuts

my thoughts

should teachers be armed at school
i have 10 teachers among my siblings and their spouses
do i want them to be armed if they were still teaching school
no way
would i want my wife she armed
no no way
as trumps says
bad idea
lets drop this one
thats just peanut crumbs

should 18 year olds be allowed to buy a gun
they can drink and drive and vote and die in the middle east
many with guns in their hands

should folks be allowed to have long guns for hunting and for
sport shooting
no problem with probably most americans agreeing

should there be strict laws on all gun purchases
as strict as possible while allowing hunting and sport shooting
and personal protection

should mental ill folks have guns
you have to well define mental illness
depression is common in the us
anxiety is common
bipolar is controllable
autism spectrum is usually not a threatening disease
schizophrenics not well controlled shouldnt have guns

this one seems straightforward but its probably not easy
to define who would be restricted

you are starting to mess with folks rights who have psychological
issues that are not violent

violent folks and criminals and felons
no doubt about it they dont need access to guns
if you have a restraining order against you for violence
you lose your guns

as an aside
did you know who the number one state is for gun deaths
number 2
number 15
the other 13 of the top 15 are mostly in the south

it does somehow bother me
and should bother you
that these organizations
big pharma
financial organization lobbies ie wall street
really control our congress
they provide the money that the congress folks get
from outside sources

they seem to run things
not allowing congress folks to think for themselves
something that seems foreign to them

that big ole elephant in the room
that folks on both sides of the issue
seem to be avoiding

thats the assault style rifle used in wars
to kill and maime folks
its not used for hunting

in the us its mainly used for sport shooting
to massacre kids at school
at other locations
like vegas and florida and california

now this is my opinion
an old southern guy
who has owned guns and hunted and has done sport shooting
who has a lot of relatives with a gun
all that doesnt bother me at all

i think
its time for the congress folks to have what it takes
to permanently ban these assault guns like the ar15
and ak47 and their similar relatives permanently
only allowing them for the
us military
us police
us groups like the fbi

its the right thing to do
most americans agreen with me

  1. Please vote! USA second amendment gives gun rights..for personal protection and against tyrannical governments and military....that sounds like you could organize a militia and shoot the bad cops and soldiers and tyrants at your door, but if we use our voting powers, we can control our government and our armies!!!! why don't more Americans vote?
