With the invention of the gun brains and skill over powered the brawn. Muscular strength no longer dominated in the society. Of course, the gun was employed by the military, but its main benefit was and is protection for the family and dwelling. Teenagers running around with machine guns fighting one another is crazy into the sublime.
Unfortunately, during the pass 30 years the psyche of America changed. Drugs in the streets and stress at the workplace and the streets caused the emergence of crazed persons perpetrating unheard of violence upon other persons. Naturally, the nation is now pondering
how to stop such violence.
My belief is that head of household need a gun in order to protect the family. The head of household who is not engaged in an illegal activity only need a small gun with maybe one shell because it never will come down to an OK Corral gunfight, only a show of the gun or a busting of one cap always stops an intruder. Therefore, an assault rife is really not needed in the home for protection
Background checks could be extended to include state mental institutions to determine if applicant is a responsible person. There is a serious need to stop the sale of assault rifes and small machine guns such as the ozi. Unfortunely, the nature of society has not reached the humane level whereas no protection is need for the home. A five or six shot revolver or a three cartridge shotgun is more than enough for home protection.
Gun control advocates who desire to outlaw the possession of firearms by the private sector have their heads in the clouds, and doesn’t have a grip on reality for the middle and lower classes of America who is the major group who expects less police protection. The rich citizens is a smaller group who has much more police protection in their monitored community; also, they ignore the potentiality of the governments imposing upon our liberties; knowing that they can push the knife into our liberties a little farther without citizens becoming dangerous protestors. Lets keep it real.
