The topic of discussion for this Constitution Monday is Americans’ continuous battle to save the Right to Keep and Bear Arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The debate about more gun control laws continues. Politicians should insist on the strict enforcement of the gun laws already passed rather than keep calling for more gun control laws.
Hillary Rodham Clinton insists, “We can have common sense gun reforms that keep weapons out of the hands of criminals and the violently unstable while respecting responsible gun owners,” and Barack Obama claims, “… there is a way for us to have common sense gun laws. There is a way for us to make sure that lawful responsible gun owners like yourself are able to use them for sporting, hunting, protecting yourself.” While these gun control politicians talk about “common sense gun laws,” gun owners understand the goal is to control all guns.
People with real common sense realize that more gun laws would have prevented none of the mass shootings over the past number of years. This is because more gun laws do not keep mentally challenged people from getting guns. People who want to commit murder will find a way to do it. More gun laws simply make life more difficult for responsible gun owners.
Individuals kill other people with numerous items, such as knives and automobiles. Where are the pleas for more knife control or more automobile control? If a person commits murder with a truck, no one expects other drivers to give up their driver’s licenses or vehicles. Why should responsible gun owners have to constantly fight for the constitutional right to keep and bear arms? It is very clear that the fight continues because liberals do not want Americans to have any guns!
