An Unusual Posting

Over the years this Blog has posted many different types of writings...some were political and some were not.  Some (most) actually deal with the title of this Blog, but the one we're posting now is not even close on the radar...BUT is sooooo relevant to today that I got permission from Ronald Cherry M.D. to post his commentary from his Renew America .com column.  Your feedback is welcome and comments will, as always, be moderated .  Thank you for reading us and God Bless you all and always the U.S.A.

Death by gun control

By Ronald R. Cherry

President Obama used the Islamic Jihadist massacres in San Bernardino and Orlando as opportunities to call for gun control laws, he wants to ban the AR-15.

"We also need to make it harder for people to buy powerful assault weapons like the ones that were used in San Bernardino [AR-15s]." Barak Hussein Obama

Outlawing AR-15s will only keep them out of the hands of good guys who just want to defend their homes, families and neighbors from the action of evil men, and the so-called "gun-free zone" is an Orwellian expression for zones where good guys don't have guns, disgustingly handing bad guys a murderous advantage. There is no such thing as "banning" or "outlawing" AR-15s or similar guns from the possession of murderers or Islamic jihadists, they will have them despite these ridiculous gun control laws, but you will not. The only people who should be outlawed from gun possession are Islamic jihadists, violent felony criminals, illegal aliens, those suffering from psychosis with hallucinations, and anyone threatening or inciting murder; that way good guys would still have their guns, including the AR-15, as per our Bill if Rights.

Thomas Jefferson was familiar with the foolishness of "gun control" and cited the following:

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one."

The real goal of the so-called "gun control" laws is to disarm the American people, an essential step in the establishment of totalitarian government, and as recent history proves, it ends in death by gun control.

An AR-15 semi-automatic rifle is an assault weapon in the hands of an Islamic jihadist or murderer, and so is a handgun, knife, machete, broken bottle or bomb. An AR-15 semi-automatic rifle in the hands of a good man defending himself, his family, his property or his neighbor is a defense weapon. An evil man turns a defense weapon into an assault weapon, and a good man turns an assault weapon into a defense weapon – same weapon – different men. Do not refer to AR-15s as "assault weapons," good people should refer to them, in our hands, as defense weapons. We need to aim this discussion and our legal efforts, not against "assault weapons," but against assault people.
