Gun control debate: Background checks
Gun Control & The Federal Liquidation Of Firearms (Fast & Furious)
As a red blooded American in tune with current events. I find it personally disturbing to look back on recent current headlines and see the Federal Government liquidated huge stashes of firearms to our bordering neighbors.
Also I find it hard to swallow when I think of those very same firearms being allowed back into this country with little to no regulations.
The lifting of the ban on assault weapons, the sale of weapons in the "Fast and Furious" case. Those weapons sold to other countries have made it back to America and have been allowed to be modified to become automatic weapons with devices purchased online for just a few dollars.
It seems to me that Government is capitalizing on both ends of the spectrum. They allow for the circumstances and even assist in providing the weapons and when the unspeakable acts happen. They then want to take up post against situations they have created themselves. Hypocritical view of the elected government officials are being painted with a tarnished brush.
The constitution has not been upheld in other areas of American life. So it is highly likely that they are aiming to assault those fundamental rights.
I find it disturbing to see the 911 event take place and the American public allowed for fundamental freedoms to be stripped away shortly after. Now they are aiming at even more of the fundamental freedoms because of their own errors. They sold the guns to countries that sold them back to the U.S. public with absolutely no restrictions or regulations.
But NOW they want to take away our rights because they are incompetent in fulfilling their official duties? Yeah right, that will go over like a lead balloon!
You screwed up and innocent people have died BECAUSE OF YOU! You are not going to make things right with the populous by depriving fundamental rights after the fact!
I personally have had just about enough of the Elderly Soap opera in Washington. They can't agree on anything but their own pay raises and vacations.
But when it comes to doing the peoples work, they have failed miserably! Being the least productive Congress in over 60 years.
But watch and see if they don't all come together to take your rights away!
(Create & Switch campaign) Put the weapons out there in the wrong hands and lift the ban on assault weaponry and wait for the opportunity to chip away at fundamental constitutional rights by legislation provoked by fear created by the very same government.
The American people see this and are outraged over the misrepresentation of facts. The cables released by Wikileaks prove the U.S. Government supplied millions in weapons to the Mexican Government. The corruption Mexican officials then funneled those weapons to the cartels. Which then have made their way back across the border and into American citizens hands. Then those weapons are modified from semi automatic to fully automatic high powered assault riffles that have the capability to empty a full cartridge of 60 rounds in a matter of seconds.
Those firearms are then left laying around peoples homes and in the case of burglary, those weapons then fall into the hands of criminals.
Instead of gun control, We the people need more Government control! We the people Demand better and we deserve better!
