After four years of allowing Republicans to bully and bluster their way to enacting laws that benefit wealthy people and gun nuts, the president of the United States of America has decided enough is enough. In the wake of children dying due to the presence of guns in our cultur, Obama finally said, “this time words need to lead to action.” He will propose gun legislation to Congress. He also challenged the NRA to “do some self-reflection.” We fear the NRA lacks the capacity to reflect on anything other than how to find new ways of getting guns into the hands of people.
Our Founding Fathers neve intended for assault weapons or high powered rifles to be in the hands of citizens. They specifically referred to a “militia,” not to an “individual.” Of course, if Republicans ever studied George Washington they would know he detested state militia and considered them incompetent with weapons.
