President Obama and the liberal progressive Democrats want nothing more than to disarm the American people. Currently, there are more guns in private ownership than there are people and this is a huge problem for a political group that wants to take over the country and turn it into a socialist nation.
Democrats have been pushing for more and stricter gun control laws. They claim it’s to help curb violent crimes, but statistics worldwide show that stricter gun control laws and even outlawing private gun ownership only serves to drive violent crimes higher because law abiding citizens can no longer defend themselves. Most of the places in the US that have the strictest gun control laws are also among the nation’s leaders in violent crimes, so it’s obvious more gun control is not the solution to preventing crime.
Obama and his cronies did their best to pass sweeping control laws earlier this year but they failed. Americans still have their guns and millions of us are not afraid to use them to protect ourselves, loved ones and property.
Herein lies the problem for our Democratic controlled government. So what is their solution? Have law enforcement start arresting legal gun owners, have schools banning gun owning parents from the campuses and some law enforcement shoot anyone carrying a gun.
Tanya Perry-Mount of Augusta, Georgia had served our country by serving in the Army. Now, she is proud of the fact that she received a conceal carry license from the state of Georgia. She was so proud that she posted a photo of her license on her own private Facebook page. However, her joy was short lived when she received a no trespassing order from McBean Elementary School where her daughter attends.
The Richmond County Board of Education police delivered the no trespassing order to her last week. She asked what she had done to deserve this and they basically told her that the principal was afraid of her because she served in the Army and now has a conceal carry license.
In September, Thomas Donald of Crawford County, Michigan, and his son were hunting on his own property. Donald was carrying an unloaded .410 shotgun while his son hunted with a crossbow. They happened up a dirt biker who was trespassing on the Donald property. Thomas took the trespasser back to his house and called the authorities.
When the authorities arrived, they ended up arresting Thomas for having an unloaded shotgun on his property and charged him felony assault with a deadly weapon. When his wife tried to video tape the arrest, one of the officers told her to stop recording, then took the camera away from her and deleted the file. Fortunately, she was able to restore the deleted file.
Perhaps one of the scariest things that legal gun owners may face will take place in Obama’s political home city of Chicago. In August, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy was not happy about Illinois’ new conceal carry law. In response to the law, McCarthy told a local radio station:
“You put more guns on the street expect more shootings,” McCarthy said. “I don’t care if they’re licensed legal firearms, people who are not highly trained… putting guns in their hands is a recipe for disaster. So I’ll train our officers that there is a concealed carry law, but when somebody turns with a firearm in their hand the officer does not have an obligation to wait to get shot to return fire and we’re going to have tragedies as a result of that. I’m telling you right up front.”
Many gun advocates are interpreting McCarthy’s comment to mean that Chicago police may be trained to shoot first and ask if you have permit afterward. They view it as his form of intimidation of legal gun owners and people with conceal carry permits.
If the liberal socialists can’t legislate the guns out of our hands, then they are turning to other extreme methods. Schools are banning parents from their campuses just because they have a permit to conceal carry, not because they actually brought a gun anywhere near the school. We are hearing of more and more cases of legal gun owners who use their guns on their own property for protection and ending up being arrested along with the criminals. In Chicago, it’s getting back to the Old West days of shoot the moment you see someone else with a gun, legal or not. They are and will continue to make life as difficult as possible for legal owners until they get their way and pry our guns out of our cold dead hands.
