Non Responsible Americans

Arms on the table

Lay down my arms

It is difficult to tell people they can not protect themselves. Let the police protect you. That is why they are there. It is not like the government is going to go Nazi on us. No matter who is president.

It is so difficult to convince someone of anything that has been passed down from generation to generation. The way these minds think are logical from their perspective.  Imagine growing up and your parents tell you to stay away from dogs. They teach you to walk on the other side of the road. Never stick your hand out. And run if they come close to you. Or maybe shoot them if they come close to you. What if that person were to go to another country or state or town where they love dogs. Where dogs are all over the place running through the streets,  jumping on people and licking them. Does that person pull out a gun and start shooting every dog they see? Hopefully not. But, it must be confusing for them. If told in advance that dogs were nice, would they be able to convince themselves that it would be all right. What if even though all the dogs were fun loving beauties this person still resisted and still hated them? Could anyone convince this person of anything or will they forever stand by what they were taught and not budge a bit?

Now days the only good thing guns are for is shooting at a practice range.  Some guns shoot t-shirts into a crowd. Some are used to scare crows from the corn field. Some people were brought up with guns in their family. They think guns are common and are safe when stored in a good place. And in general they are correct. But, then comes the exception. A kid finds a gun in the closet and accidentally kills somebody. This is so tragic it makes up for the thousands that don’t happen.

There are businesses that stand to make a lot of money by selling weapons.  And there are their contacts who pay government officials to do whatever they request. But, those same businesses are making a killing with weapons of war such as billion dollar jets. One theory is the 1%, #royalty are racing to see who can make the largest deductibles on their taxes without showing them on their non-audited taxes.

Some people just want attention.  And boy if you gun down thirty innocent people you are bound to be over spotlighted.  The news industry has to jump all over it and repeat the same story over and over. And that is a shame. Both of you get the attention you were aiming for and the news gets a story for weeks until someone else gets the attention. Children sometimes seek attention and it is understood why they get it. Because they are so cute. Why do grown people need that much attention is a question for everyone to ask themselves. Try stand up comedy.

Is it possible America has 75 times more gun killings a year than the majority of the free world countries? And every time a killing spree happens gun sales go up? Is that fake advertising?

Non-responsible Americans, #NRA are laughing at America and the world. Their goal is to bring chaos to America;  to separate us from our own brothers.  What other use do we have for guns and weapons of mass destruction is for you to ask yourself. ‘How long will this go on?’ our politicians should ask their children.
