Peace Through Strength. Are Guns really the issue?

I was taken aback by this picture. I want to be somewhat controversial on this topic.

As a society, we have stopped thinking outside the box.  In fact, it would seem that knee-jerk reactions are all the rage.

This picture and others like it were sparked by the Parkland shooting.

  • Guns are evil. All firearms must be confiscated.
  • Ooops knives are evil, all knives must be confiscated.
  • Wait, trucks are evil nobody needs to drive a car.
  • Ummm Rocks are evil we should grind them all into powder
  • Err Ummm clubs are evil nobody needs a club.

The simple facts are that people can be evil so that is where we must begin.

I would have my students on day one of the class write their obituary.  If you died tomorrow what would be on your tombstone?  Why not write a will?  Why not have a sense of reality thrust in your safety space world?  You, my friends, are the future.  Why not get a dose of reality?

Here is a dose of reality my pets.  13,206,482 people voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary.  Why is that enlightening?

Bernie Sanders is a died in the wool socialist. This means that Thirteen Million Two hundred and six thousand four hundred and eighty-two people have no idea what socialism is.

In a nutshell, Socialism is Shared Misery!

Why is that fact germane to our discussion today?

Anyone who voted for this clown is either ignorant as a stump, has the IQ of a houseplant, or is so filled with hate that they would rather see the country fail than accept the will of the voters or…they are Russian trolls trying to destroy the country from within.

There can be no equivocation on this.  If you are one of these 13 plus million people, please sit the hell down with a good history book and learn why Communism is a bad thing!  Pick up a book on Stalin for starters.

I spoke with a college student when the primaries were happening.  She told me she was voting for Bernie.

“Ok, glad that you are voting can you tell me why Bernie?”

“I like his message.”

“What about his message do you like?”

“He is for the little people.”

“Who are the little people and why do you say that?”

“He wants everyone to have free healthcare and free college.”

“Umm dear, that is socialism, we are a capitalist society, not a communistic one.  Do you know what socialism is?”

“Um, wait let me look it up.”

“Go ahead, I will wait.”

Pulls out smartphone “cost $1000” and googles Socialism.

The look on her face was fascinating to watch as this is the first time she had ever bothered to learn what it was.  College grad from a liberal arts college and had no clue what I was talking about.

Finally, she looks at me in the face and said. “We just want the good parts of that, socialism stuff.”

“Darling, there are no good parts of socialism.  The elite run the country, and they take from everyone until there is no more to take, and then everyone but them starves.”

“That is not true, you just don’t like Bernie.”

“It is true, and I do like him.  He is delusional, but I think he is entertaining and he might mean well, but I doubt it.”

The proof of his meaning well or not was made clear after Hillary rigged the election. His true self appeared when he allowed himself to be bribed with aircraft and houses to campaign for Hillary.  His ethics were up for sale.  That is the problem with most power brokers and politicians, they all have a price!

“Now let’s go back to the “I should be writing my essay and not my will.”

The problems today are not the weapons of choice, but the motives and the mental health of the perpetrators.

You, the essay writer, your generation spends more time on screens and video games than on writing essays.  They certainly spend more time on texting and Facebook than learning history. Your level of ignorance on display; only highlights the facts that our education system is failing you, or you are willfully stupid.

When I see or read about people being triggered by history, I cannot help but wonder how much longer this country and others like it will be free.  This outspoken mouthpiece for CNN and other media sources looking for ratings at the expense of any tragedy is also willfully stupid or under the control of the media who has an agenda.

You will actually need to go to the library and pick up books on history as the internet is malleable.  When Wikipedia is the go-to source for anything information wise, they could write anything that they wanted.

Case in point I was in a bookstore the other day.  There was this massive section on WARS.  Looking at all the different titles and all of the histories in that section on how men kill one another over land or things or merely control of the masses, I was amazed at just how willfully stupid we are as humans!

Want some enlightenment, read about the early church.

  • Power hungry.
  • Were the spiritual leader.
  • Were the schools.
  • Were the government.

The early church was the power broker of the day.  If you dared to have an opinion that was not in lock step with theirs you might very well be killed.  You were not allowed to read or have a copy of the bible.  An ignorant society is much easier to control than one that is intelligent and can think for itself.

During the days of slavery, it was illegal to teach a slave to read.  Why?

Yes, we are using the Socratic method of teaching here.  Think about it.

Multi-generations of wars and fighting with one another over just about anything and everything, you think that someone would have had more than a few neurons firing and figured out that diplomacy might work better than knives or trebuchets or swords, clubs, rocks and yes guns and cannons and other missiles and even poison gas.

In my novel Under Roswell, I talk about not letting the ship fall into any governments hands as they would undoubtedly use its technology to kill others.  When we take each new discovery and figure out a way to weaponize it, you can quickly discern that it is not the gun or knife, but the heart of man.

My friend with the sign, pick up a damned book and learn why we have so many nukes pointed at our enemies, and why they have so many aimed at us. Peace through strength!

You can take away the guns and knives and trucks and cars and clubs but, as long as man has free will and he has motivation he will find a way to kill.  Early man of 6 million plus years ago ate each other.  Cannibals still exist in parts of the world today.  Thier motive for killing is they are hungry.  What will the motive be for the next mass murderer? He or she was triggered by some statue?

Laws only affect those that obey them.  I know very few criminals who would look at that sign on your home or business that says Gun Free Zone and turn around if they intended to come in and do some nefarious act.

The Gun Debate, A Solution.

 

Let me say this about that!

Did you ever just want to scream?

I am not given to fits of outrage.  I am just not.  I am old enough and wise enough to know that some people are just not as intelligent as their dog.  In fact, their dog should probably put them on a leash.

I could write this blog in one sentence.  I could save you the few minutes it will take to read it by just telling the American people much less the world how to solve this issue.  The answer is simple!  The problem is people.  People who think that they know better than you how you should live, think, etc.  That is the problem, and those people want to continue to be empowered to control you, so they muddy the waters with absolute bullshit!

Here, try this solution.  Put those signs in every school or every building that say “This is a gun free zone!”  It will work because it is a law!

Now, who among you thinks that will work?”

“If you think that is the solution you seriously need to read some history, not the redacted version but actual history.  Study the real unvarnished history of man.” How about the rise and fall of the Roman empire for starters, how many of you have studied that?

No, we have pansies walking around looking for things to be offended about.  Oh, my this history is so terrible let’s just take those statues down and remove them as they are horrible.  If nobody sets the people right, this country will fall without one shot fired.

There is actually something very dark going on in this world, and it has to do with destroying this country.  This country is the best country to live in bar none. Sorry, my international friends, I still love you but, where I live is the best place to be, so far.  It will be until the people that want to destroy it are successful in doing so.

I am not going to give you a history lesson on this blog as you would stop reading it, and that is a problem.  Don’t confuse me with the facts!

What would twitter or Facebook look like if it had been around when Hitler came to power?

“Hitler Hitler he’s our man….”  I can see it now!

Twitter or Facebook would be singing his praises while downplaying the atrocities that they were committing. They would, in fact, be distorting the truth and making the Jews out to be disserving of extinction to protect their anointed one.

What would it have looked like when Stalin was killing millions of his people by starvation?”

“We need to send our food to other countries and starve to death as that is the thing to do! We need to sell it for more guns and weapons so our fearless leader can keep us safe!  If you don’t starve to death for our leader you a racist or whatever the evil term was in the day.”

The hell of it is there will some that read those last two sentences and will not know what I am talking about.

Had this country had the gun laws that Australia and other countries have now you might very well be speaking German or Japanese.

“Oh TW you are mellow dramatic!”

“No, don’t think so.”  The reason we are not speaking Russian is that we have nukes that are aimed at them like they have them aimed at us.  One nuke detected sets off the end of the world.  How is that for a cheery thought?

That is no joke, that is why rogue nations must not have them as one nuke launched would end the world period.  There are no winners with nukes, even “strategic nukes whatever the hell that is?” By the time we went to sort it out and discover that a mouse ate through a control cable shorting it causing the nuke to launch, we would all be dead.

Stopping the Japanese in world war II with two very inefficient nukes worked, we were the only ones that had them.  Had Japan had them I dare say that this planet would look much different.  Yes, they would have had their revenge but would probably not have been around to witness it. There is always that chance, had they had them they might have been smart enough to realize that they should not use them?

Do you know how the Russians got them?  Hmmmm?? Yes, a spy gave them the plans who was working with J.Robert Oppenheimer. Klaus Fuchs was one of the guys caught and only received 14 years for his treason. The only reason he did not get killed was that Russia was classified as an Ally back then.  What do we do with our treasonous people now??? Shit, you know what we did.. He is now a girl on the taxpayers’ dime and an activist.  PFFT!

“What does all this have to do with Guns TW?”

Japan did not even think about coming on shore on the mainland because they knew that every farmer in the land was armed and dangerous.

If those who are being manipulated with their emotions had their way, they would disarm the American people in a heartbeat.  Just like they did in Australia and Mexico and countless other places.

If you want to fix Mexico, give the people their guns back! I dare say drug traffickers and gangs might think twice if they thought that they might get shot.

Know why it will not happen??? C’mon take a guess…

The government any government loves a disarmed public so they can do whatever the hell they want!  90% tax rate, no problem what are the peasants going to do about it, we will have CNN tell them it is for the good of the country!

“Still thinking more gun laws as the answer?”

If the signs saying this is a gun-free zone would not work, why would more gun laws work?

Who obeys laws?

Honest people obey laws.  Criminals do not, nor do they have any respect for them.

“Ok TW you are so smart what is the answer to the problem?”

“Wow, glad you asked.”

The solution is not as simple as there is no “do this” and it will stop.  That is another reason why these stupid, inane arguments about gun laws are a waste of time.

“If it is a waste of time why are they mentioning them, look those actors are spending their time telling us that we don’t need guns!”

“Yes, those actors with armed bodyguards are telling you the peasants that you don’t need a gun.” “Are they telling you to eat cake too?”  Just curious.

Every time there is a shooting these sycophants for the Democrats parade out the same old tired arguments that anyone with a brain knows are useless.  So why are they doing it?”

They know that more laws are pointless too.  The idea is to paint the other party as the bad guys and make it appear that if it were not for the Republicans, those 17 innocent children would be alive today.  They do this so when election time rolls around they can paint the NRA and the Republicans as white, gun loving, god fearing, beer drinking, misogynists, good old boys, and, get you to emotionally vote against the very people who are trying to protect your rights.  It is a high stakes card game with you the American people as the chips.  Those playing the game don’t care who gets killed or hurt, in the process.  To them, it is about money and power!  The party in power takes the money from lobbyist and large companies to write laws that help them, not you.

If they cared there would be no sanctuary cities anywhere!

If they cared they would focus on immigration and fix it.  They don’t want it fixed.
This is in fact so transparent even the most dimwitted of voters should be able to see through it.  CNN and their ilk will create propaganda until the story cools down and have it ready again once another loon does something stupid.

“These gun free zones seem like a good idea?”

“Actually I would and will argue that there should not be one gun free zone ever!” If I was a bad guy that is where I would go as it is a soft target.”

Here is the skinny whether you like it or not.

Mental health is the most significant part of this equation.

If I could be involved with the forensics of this case, I would want to know several things.

  • What is this kids background
  • What was his home life like
  • Was he a good student
  • Was he social or an introvert
  • Did he have friends
  • If so who were they
  • Did he play violent video games
  • Did he give any warnings on social media
  • Were there any triggers?
  • Did he have a girlfriend?
  • Was he on drugs, legal or otherwise?

In short, I would develop a profile of this kid and compare it to the other loons that have shot up places.

Yes, then I would take that data and provide it to school counselors and other mental health professionals who could look for similar profiles or traits among their students.  I realize that this is thinking outside the box of being politically correct but, what we are doing is not working for us, so why not try something new?

I would develop programs where social media of the students was monitored by the school.  It is public, so if that program saved just one life, it would be worth it. These kids are constantly bombarded with crap and in many cases don’t have a father and or mother around to talk with.  The family unit needs help Hollywood…Do you care or is it all about ratings???

We still don’t know why the guy shot up Las Vegas.

Why that case is still in the dark is beyond me.

My heart breaks for these families.  It truly does.  I am also distraught with the Hollywood ilk who want to take your guns away!  Shit, arm the teachers and administration in all the schools.

As far as this kid is concerned, when they are finished extracting any useful information from him, I would have him executed by some other method than putting him to sleep. I would want to make an example of him to copycats. Classify him as a domestic terrorist and send him to Gitmo.  If you think you are going to do this and you don’t get killed in the process, you will not be treated well once you are found guilty!

I know it seems brutal and it is.  Instead of pussyfooting around with brain dead misfits, make it known to them that the consequences will be dire!

To you elite knuckleheads who think that gun laws are the answer, please learn some damned history!  You are wrong, and you are selling the country down the road to hell.  People look up to your pedantic verbiage because you can read a script and emote!  That my thespian friends place the burden of more responsibility on your heads so be careful of what gobbledygook comes from your narrow view of the world as it is.  Not everyone can afford a bulletproof limousine and an armed bodyguard!

While they totally ruin the state of California with their vacuous ideas, I would not put much stock in anything some nighttime comedians or other personalities have to say.  Without good writers, they are probably fairly dull individuals.

The enemy is inside the courtyard and is attacking us with our own ignorance! And boy are we dumb!  Anyone who cannot see the forest for the trees needs to get the hell out of the woods and take a look around.  “Yes, that is a metaphor for you MSNBC CNN zombies.  They are feeding you poison. Russian poison to be factual.

If I seem upset, it is because I am.  This miscreant did have all sorts of warning signs, and they were all overlooked.  He legally bought the gun which he used.  With the warning signs he produced, how the hell is it that when he applied for the gun ownership, something was not triggered?

Speaking of white, when did it become a crime to be white?

And god, when did having faith in god turn into a mental illness? They will say anything for ratings.

I am sorry Hollywood, but you have lost my patronage on anything that you turn out.  I happen to think seeing people in person has much more value than spending money watching what you turn out.
