Our Love Affair With Guns

on July 28, 2012

 

 

Sorry that I missed this when it happened, but it does speak to this country’s continuing fascination with guns, guns, guns.  Link.

Steven Hopler is legally blind. And it was alleged he is a drunk. And he accidentally shot himself. Nevertheless, a judge ruled he has a Second Amendment right to bear arms and ordered police to return the guns they had seized from him.

Well, there we are.  Senseless deaths will continue until this country comes to terms with its worship of guns.  I am in no way condoning disarming every citizen.  I am a firm believer in the Bill of Rights.  I own two shotguns and a rifle, myself.   But I have also read the whole of the 2nd Amendment.

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.

The NRA and their cohorts always seem to ignore the “well regulated Militia” part.

    what was that old saying? “In the land of the blind…the blind guy with the most guns will be king”…?
