Trump Says Yes to More AR-15’s on The Streets
Gun Rights in America
So Trump decided to sort of talk about the mass shooting issues here in America. In doing so he did happen to address one key element to the problem and that is mental health.
I know that I have suggested quite a few times before on ways to deal with mental health and gun ownership, sadly Obama would not once acknowledge my carefully thought out questions during his time in office let alone answer them whenever he was on Twitter taking questions from everyone a couple of times.
What Trump failed to address however is that goddamn 2nd Amendment which unfortunately is so completely lost in the mix. Rights, what are rights here in America, really?
Just because one is born here does not necessarily mean they are owed a damn thing let alone a right to have guns.
What’s more is that the 2nd Amendment never in anyway shape or form was created with the idea or notion that a more powerful weapon than the single shot muzzle loading pistols of the times would ever be created.
So, that 2nd Amendment right clearly does not fit in the world we currently live in not to mention let’s just point out the obvious, it’s clearly outdated.
Our mass shooting issues are two fold, mental health, and weapons. The types of weapons available today are not what they are used to be and if you are like me, someone who actually goes out into the real world, experiences people, places and things, you know full well that the mental health, ideas and, conspiracy theories of others are not always sane.
I love to have this debate with my dad, who is a gun owner and feels strongly that individuals should be allowed to own whatever weapon because as he informs me, it is a Goddamned American Right, it’s called the 2nd Amendment, and my argument back is simply that it should not be a right in today’s world until the 2nd Amendment is amended to better fit today’s world.
My dad even feels that doctors should not have a right to know if someone owns weapons, and to me that is completely so very wrong.
As I have said many times before, an individuals mental health status can change rather dramatically without warning due to hormones, drugs, age etc. So while someone may have legally purchased any type of gun, that individual may not always be mentally healthy enough to continue to own a gun at any-one time in his or her life.
By the same token, why would anyone be allowed to own any type of semi-automatic weapon? That is so completely insane that I at times have issues with just wrapping my head around it.
To be completely honest, that is just flat out stupid.
What’s next, me purchasing a nuke at my nearest 7-11 because of the 2nd Amendment?
Completely absurd no?
Well that’s pretty much where we are with the 2nd Amendment today, AR-15’s today, nukes tomorrow because every god fearing American should have the right to bear whatever arms he so desires.
