No, we do not.
I mean, come on. It should be obvious to any PATRIOT who has ever READ these words…
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
That’s the Second Amendment, for any of you MARXISTS who may be reading this.
And. It’s. The. Bottom. Line.
If you don’t know what the title of this article refers to, a terrible tragedy occurred earlier this week…
“A 9-year-old girl firing an Uzi submachine gun at a shooting range accidentally killed the instructor who had been showing her how to use it.
Charles Vacca, 39, died Monday, after the girl pulled the trigger of the Uzi and was apparently unable to control the recoil of the automatic weapon.”
This tragedy was as tragic as it was unavoidable.
And like any true American who loves Freedom, I am as saddened by it as I am determined not to do anything to prevent it from happening again.
If you actually READ the description of the range where it took place, it sounds like reasonable precautions were taken and everything was being conducted in a responsible manner…
“The shooting range, Bullets and Burgers is in the Mojave Desert… The range’s website advertises four-hour tour packages in which tourists can be picked up at their hotels, driven to the property and given “the opportunity to fire a wide range of fully automatic machine guns and specialty weapons.” Lunch is served, and guests can have videos taken of their shooting experience.
Some ranges prohibit young children from handling heavy weaponry, but this one allows children as young as 8 to participate. The Bullets and Burgers website… reads in part: “Shoot a wide variety of fully automatic machine and belt fed guns including the AK-47, Colt M-16, MP5/40, FN FAL, Bren, M4, M249, M60, PKM, and M203 Grenade Launcher.”
See? Just like the Founders explicitly described when they wrote the constitution.
As Jefferson once opined…
“Hm, should I take a 4 hour drive to the Mojave Desert to shoot the belt fed M60 light machine-gun, or the M203 Grenade launcher.”
And later asked…
“I wonder which one my 9 year-old daughter would prefer…”
“Will this excursion also include lunch?”
And it did.
But I’m willing to bet that the whole reason any of this happened is because some LIBERAL JABRONI from
one of our precious coastlines stepped in and said, “Whoa, sorry little girl, I’m not comfortable with you firing the M203 Grenade Launcher”… So she HAD to shoot the UZI instead.
But let’s not lose sight of the bigger picture in this horrific death: that my property is in danger. Obama wants to take away all our guns. He’s just looking for an excuse. And I, along with PATRIOTS, know Obama wants to do this because he denies he wants to do it.
Politicians and progressives just don’t get it.
Smart, regular folks get it. Like StealthTSX, who comments on TheBlaze…
“That is just plain stupid. He should have had her shoot a good amount of rounds on semi-auto for her to get an idea of how powerful that thing is. And he is an idiot for standing where he was. I don’t think a girl that small should be shooting an uzi without some safeguards in place”
Yeah, guy! How about a few rounds on semi-auto first? Ya’ big ol’ idiot.
Or, as RWReaganfan, of the esteemed Hannity.com Forums, so tactfully sums it up…
“The instructor may as well have pulled the trigger himself! He was an idiot and he died because of it!”
Hey, freedom isn’t free…
But RWReaganfan also boldly takes on the Elephant in the room of this and every sense-ful gun death: that some uber-progressive, lib-stremists think that a law or policy could have prevented the tragedy.
And we all know this is false…
Why do we need another useless law on the books? Common sense should prevail and not because “it’s the law”.
Yes, we don’t need laws to do common sense’s job. That’s why I think we should get rid of ALL THESE USELESS LAWS.
Somebody steals a car? Charge them with “not having common sense.”
Someone gets murdered? Surely a 1st degree “lack of common sense” punishable by life behind bars (or death in Texas).
And, while we’re at it, f*** it. Let’s charge all the people who voted for President HUSSEIN Obama with “lack of common sense too”. Punishable by 5 years watching Fox News.
Wow, governing without laws is easy. See, libs, all these laws are really useless.
Especially any of those useless, unconstitutional gun laws we don’t have.
