Gun control proposal

By From page A7 | January 25, 2013

EDITOR:

Let’s settle this gun control thing once and for all, shall we? Fact: There are only two ways the Citizenry of America can be disarmed; no more, and no less. No. 1 — repeal the Second Amendment. This will take a vast amount of work and is extremely unlikely to ever bear fruit and most of you are far, far too lazy to even attempt it. “Incremental infringements” will not work. Our Second Amendment rights have been infringed upon too much already and we’ll have no more. No more.  That leaves you with choice No. 2 — a house-to-house confiscation campaign, probably initiated by an illegal Executive Order. This will ultimately prove to be very nasty, wet, work, and most of you don’t have the belly for it. So those are your choices. Choose one, choose the other, or sit down and shut up.

If you choose No. 1, then get to work. Find out how to propose the legislation and get moving. Go to Walmart and with your clipboard and petition and ask people to sign it. Call your legislators and ask what you can do to get this going — don’t just tell them what you want in a handy dandy little phone call or e-mail and then go back to your TV show or your Internet porn. But, if you choose No. 2, your name had better be on the signup sheet for volunteers to do the house-to-house confiscations. Simply whining, wetting yourself, and writing Letters to the Editor may make you feel better but proves you nothing more than a coward.
