Are we citizens or subjects?

To the gun grabbers out there:  Stop talking about taking away the tools by which I would defend myself and my family.

To the pantywaist conservatives out there:  Stop talking about hiring armed security guards and elderly veteran volunteers to patrol our schools.

Instead, return to the way things are supposed to be, and that is to do away with concealed carry licenses, permits, "gun-free zones", banning of scary-looking guns with pistol grips and bayonet lugs, and all the other nonsense laws and regulations out there that do nothing but disarm law-abiding citizens, but do nothing to stop the psychos, sociopaths, and generally bad guys out there who mean to do us harm.

When will you gun grabbers get it through your thick skulls that if a person is not afraid to break laws against murder, he is going to think nothing about breaking laws against bringing a rifle with an illegal pistol grip into a "gun-free zone."

When a bad guy does harm with a gun, there is only one thing that eventually stops him, and that is the arrival of another gun.  Pure and simple.

The gun that stops him could be...

1. his own, as he puts it to his temple or under his chin;

2. the ones held by the phalanx of police who arrive on the scene to try to stop the carnage that is already well under way;

3. one that belongs to a private citizen(s) who happens to be at the scene when the carnage begins.

Waiting for the shooter to use his own gun to end his own life is not an option, as he has already killed upwards of dozens of people.  Waiting for the cops is better than nothing, but as the old saying goes:  When seconds count, the cops are only minutes away.  Or we could depend on good old fashioned self-reliance - like we Americans used to - and stop infringing upon the God-given rights of  people... responsible, upright, law-abiding people... to possess and use (keep and bear) the tools (arms) that are necessary in our society to defend their own lives, and the lives of their family and any other innocent people out there who need defending.

I am sick to death of being told by these hyperventilating ninnies in the media, in the halls of academe, and in the halls of our state and federal governments that I should be left defenseless because of the actions of some deranged monster.  It is the very reason that deranged monsters like Adam Lanza exist that as many people as possible should keep and bear arms in our country.

So to those people who are reflexively jerking their knees, and are calling for new rounds of gun bans, and gun control laws, and have their totalitarian control-freak rat claws reaching for the firearms that I own for the purpose of protecting and defending myself, my family, my community, my state, and my country, I say:

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."
- George Washington

 "The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms."
- Samuel Adams

 "Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.... The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun."
- Patrick Henry

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."
- Thomas Jefferson

Never trust a government that does not trust you with a gun. Our system of law controls government, not individuals. I have no Constitutional rights. My rights are God-given. The Constitution is a limit on government. Anyone who assaults the Bill of Rights should be arrested and tried for treason. What part of "shall not be infringed" is so difficult to understand.

Out of an ethnological interest I would really like to understand your supportive arguments about the free possession and use of guns.
Unfortunately your post comes a bit too ravingly across.
Please can you re-post your arguments in a let’s just say more intelligible and tidied manner?

I have already some question.

What’s the beneficial effect of handing out weapons indiscriminately to everyone?
From a logical point of view this uncontrolled distribution implies that everyone is allowed to running free with a gun, no matter if the person is law abiding or not, sane or not.
What kind of society is that?
Wouldn’t it be better to have no guns at all?
That shouldn’t be enforced by any government or higher authority at all of course; it should be enforced by common sense.
I also didn’t get the notion that guns have to be around to protect the individual from a potentially abusive or oppressive government.
Of what use is a puny handgun if a government decides to act by force against some of its own people?
What I also didn’t understand is the concept that personal freedom can be ensured by the possession of guns.
That’s a really alien thought process.

Responding to Anonymous #2: your syntax, grammar and usage imply that you are not an American by birth, and you are alien to the thought processes of those in this country who understand freedom, liberty, common sense and protection from abusive and oppressive governments. Perhaps you should review your arguments for intelligibility, tidiness, and logic.

Of ethnological interest, you might travel to Rwanda where you can see the mass graves of over a million people murdered in one hundred days, nearly all with machetes. Anything in the hands of those who seek to do harm is a weapon. Banning guns won't stop the slaughter of innocents anymore than Prohibition stopped drinking.

Whoops! My response was directed at Anonymous #2, of course.

Firstly, Oracle will certify and assistance prospects who already operate its software program on Home windows Server to operate that very same program on Windows Server Hyper-V or in Windows Azure. Oracle buyers also acquire the reward to operate their Oracle program licenses in Home windows Azure “with new license mobility.”
