Guns, Guns, My Kingdom For A Gun

The United States Supreme Court in its now expected 5-4 vote, upheld the right of individuals to carry their throughout the land regardless of any state or local attempt to impose some guidelines on who can own a gun. As Justice Alioto argues, it’s the 2nd Amendment and no one can argue with that document. I believe the Court is now ready to protect the rights of ALL Americans to carry their guns anywhere. I believe each student attending school has the right to carry a weapon, and if their teacher is one of those damn liberals who insults God fearing Americans who believe in Creationism, then the student has at least the right to fire a warning shot across the chest of the teacher. Then again, if we can carry guns, why not knives and hand grenades? Why can’t a God Fearing American enter a bank, wave his grenade in the direction of a bank teller and if that kind soul wishes to drop a few dollars in his direction, mark it down to the 2nd Amendment.

We have yet to take the next step in fortifying our second Amendment rights. The next time I go to the doctor I intend to bring a revolver and if not satisfied, claim the right of self defense and kill the bastard for not curing my cancer. Of course, if some damn liberal minister or rabbi or priest continues with their sermons I have every right to show them my weapon in the church and request they change the sermon. It is my 2nd Amendment right!

Finland Reflects On Second School Shooting

The Finnish population, the media, and government are still recovering from the shock of a second brutal shooting in a school within a year. The initial question dealt with the identity and reasoning of the person who committed the shooting, and as a more complete picture emerged questions shifted to how the young man gained access to a weapon and how so leisurely wandered into a school. There are now concerns about whether Finland needs stricter gun control laws or should it follow the path of many American schools which have metal detectors. The latest poll reveals most Finns believe they are a peaceful people, but 80% now want restrictions imposed on gun ownership.

A major issue is stems from revelations the shooter was boasting on the Internet and YouTube about his desires to do something. There are reports the police who interviewed him the day before the shooting were ordered to take away his gun, but, for some unknown reason this was not done. Psychologists are discussing ways to identify future killers, but, this appears wishful thinking and not stemming from any grasp of reality.

School bullying is something schools can address. Identifying children who are loners can be done. There is need for more community building within schools in order to develop bonds of relationships between those in the school.

Supreme Court Gun Decision-Vote For Obama Or Else!

The Supreme Court decided that individuals had the right to possess handguns in their home for self defense and over turned laws in Washington D.C. that attempted to control possession of weapons. Justice Scalia, speaking for the 5-4 majority said the Constitution did not allow “the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used in self defense in the home.” However, the majority did make clear “it is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.” The decision opened the door for legislation to prohibit carrying concealed weapons or forbidding criminals and the mentally ill from having them. It also indicated weapons could be forbidden in sensitive areas like in the vicinity of schools.

The 5-4 decision makes abundantly clear that Barack Obama must be elected to prevent the Supreme Court from swinging even further to the right. A McCain election will most probably result in over-turning the right to an abortion.
