The tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary left 28 innocent people dead, their families in pain and grief, and the nation shocked. A derailed maniac, after killing his own mother, took a small arsenal of guns and ammo to a school for a shooting spree. In addition to killing, he hit our national most vulnerable spot as 18 of his 28 victims were children. One can hardly imagine something more tragic and heart breaking. Not that killing adults is somehow less barbarian than killing kids, but when children lose their young lives our sensitivity to human suffering is offended more than with anything else.
There is no life event more traumatic then surviving one’s own child. And no words can bring comfort to the parents of the 18 pupils of Sandy Hook Elementary that were killed on that day. I wish I knew the words that could.
It came as another shock to me, although not quite a surprise, to see how Liberal leading hyenas couldn’t wait a day before politicizing this tragic event of yesterday for their own advantage. But what else could we expect from them? Playing politics each and every time when a disaster or a tragedy strikes is in their heinous Liberal nature, and they really couldn’t help it. It reminded me of a now (in)famous saying of Secretary of Treasury Tim Geitner “never let a disaster go to waste”. And so they don’t.
I won’t get into details of Liberal attacks – the so-called “mainstream” media are full of them. I am sick of this enough, even without analyzing the flawed logic of these attacks in writing. As it usually is with Liberals and their never ending fallacies, the conclusions they try to draw for their own political gain are false. But the Liberal attackers are not just wrong, they are dangerously wrong.
They leave me with no choice but to reciprocate with their combative tactics.
For many years now, they have launched assaults on America as we know her, and recently, they are in a state of frontal assault on the very foundation of our freedom and prosperity. For them, the American freedom never worked, as President Obama put it while referring to American capitalism, so they are vigorously pushing to replace it with something else. Their absurd ideas of “social justice,” by which they meant rewarding the failures with the proceeds of punitive taxation of success, have already created a large privileged class of able-body working-age social parasites, augmented by a growing army of non-wealth-producing but handsomely paid government employees, while the wealth-creating companies are leaving in droves America for Brazil, China, India, and other developing countries, taking their manufacturing facilities with them. As a result, foreign nations gain economic and political strength while our country drowns further and further in recession, private-sector unemployment, and national debt, complements to the Liberal regulators who in their arrogant stupidity could not have predicted these sorry consequences of their “intelligent” re-design of the American society and economy.
Now, they are orchestrating a frontal attack on our most basic freedom: the right to defend ourselves and our loved ones with a deadly weapon. And they use the yesterday’s tragedy as an excuse to chip away another liberty of the law-abiding Americans.
To be fair to their agenda, there are some benefits of delegalization of privately-owned firearms. The most conspicuous of which is an anticipated ease with which incomes of hard-working but armless Americans can be redistributed among the privileged class of those “entitlees” who can work hard but won’t. Just think of it. How can the Liberal elites implement the social leveling that they seem to profess when almost half of American households have one or more firearms? The fact is that they cannot, so it does not surprise me to see their frantic efforts to separate productive Americans (the so-called “haves”) from their effective means of self-defense.
But there is nothing for us in the “gun control” deceptive game. Although millions of our fellow Americans who have delegated thinking to their Liberal-dominated government believe that they will be safer after they delegate to the government their right to self-defense, too, the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary can give an intelligent bystander a glimpse into what the government monopoly on protecting lives of its subjects may look like.
A 20-years young inexperienced maniac apparently had no trouble with breaking into this secure “gun-free” zone as vast majority of Liberal-run public school are. Seemingly not impressed with the federal law that prohibited him from bringing guns on the school ground, he went on his shooting spree without having to face any armed resistance from his victims or those who were supposed to protect them.
It was only after the slaughter of the innocent took place when the heavily armed police, FBI, and ATF forces entered the crime scene, engaging in a spectacular grand tour of force that lasted long after the shooter killed himself as if it could prevent the killings that already took place or save others from the bullets from guns of the already dead shooter. As if this typically bureaucratic yet prohibitively costly remedy were not enough, armed officers were dispatched to the homes of the families whose children were involved in the shooting. To make them feel even safer under the government protection, I suppose.
The only helpful measure that the government undertook was retrieving the wounded and the dead from the scene and sending counselors to the affected families in order to help them coping with their traumatic experiences. And this seems like the most certain remedies that one can expect when one delegates to government one’s right to self defense.
Under these circumstances of government’s incompetence to actually protect those in real danger, the least we question we can ask here is this. If guns are so evil, as the attacking Liberal hyenas suggest, then why all the governmental agents, whose parade we saw on the crime scene in the aftermath of the shooting, offered us such a blatantly arrogant display of all kinds of deadly weapons they ostentatiously wore, from sniper rifles to military semi-autos to high-capacity assault rifles, although there was no credible threat to public safety after the shooter killed himself?
Somehow, evil weapons of mass destruction in the hands of government agents miraculously become the good guns. Or so the Liberal deniers of our God-given right to self-defense claim.
This is utterly absurd, folks, and quite dangerously so.
The only rational ban I see that may be seriously considered as a preventive measure after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary is to ban all Liberal-controlled public schools, as they are the places of choice for derailed maniacs who want to kill a bigger number of victims unobstructedly. But the Liberal hyenas will not let that happen for the indoctrination of the youth with Liberal propaganda may be at stake. They will not rest until they liberate us from all our liberties so that we can become the making workforce of goods for the needs of all those taking who refuse to live of the fruits of their own work, and for subsistence of the huge government bureaucracy that is being created to supervised that arrangement.
