Cowards, One and All

Let me start off by saying that as a convicted felon, I cannot even own a gun, so there is absolutely nothing self-serving in what I am about to say at all. Personally, I have nothing to gain by fighting for gun rights, but I WILL fight for YOUR right to own and carry a gun and protect yourself, your loved ones and your property. 

I know that what I am about to say is nothing new, but it needs to be said over and over and over until the people with concrete in their skulls finally hear and listen. It does not take a rocket scientist to see the one common thread to almost every mass shooting that has taken place in this nation over the last many years. Almost all of them took place in "gun free zones."  Yes, the shooter(s) chose their attack zones very carefully so that they knew they would be the only ones carrying a gun.  When is the last time you heard of someone walking into a hunting resort and started shooting? Anyone ever hear of a shooting at a police station? How about that? These cowards purposely choose places like schools, churches, movie theaters and military bases where they know that guns are not likely to be, and in most cases, it is against the law to carry a gun. So get this picture... a CRIMINAL with  guns, who is breaking the law walks onto turf where it is illegal to carry a gun... where he knows the good folks are going to obey the law and he has the advantage of shooting fish in a barrel with little to no chance of being fired upon for himself. Duh... how hard is this to figure out?  So now, what these brain trusts we have in government are trying to do is make the entire nation a gun free zone!  Are you getting the picture?
Take away the guns or the right to carry a gun from the "good people" and what do you have left? I'll tell you... you have Chicago and Washington D.C..  These are places with some of the toughest gun control laws in the nation, and yet they have shootings/killings nearly every day of the year. Why? Because criminals don't obey the law! They know you and I don't have a gun so they are empowered by that knowledge that they have the advantage over us. Ever notice you don't hear of these mass shootings in Texas? I wonder why?

You liberal minded people need to get your heads out of the clouds and realize that you cannot legislate morality to people who have no morals. All you do is handcuff the good people and throw us into the barrel just waiting for the next clown who thinks it would be fun to shoot into the barrel.  I think maybe it is time for the government to issue a gun and ammo to every citizen in the country with mandatory training on how to use that weapon.
