Demographic problem

By
From page A5 | January 11, 2013 |

EDITOR:

In response to Mr. Bado’s reasoning in eliminating 2nd Amendment rights of lawful citizens, it is nothing more than a mainstream liberal media talking point regurgitation of misinformation. A couple points, first the 2nd Amendment is a right given to us by our God in Heaven, not some fraud government. Nobody can take that away from the citizens of the United States. Second, you make the claim that your view of what an assault weapon is is clearly wrong. California does not permit assault weapons to be sold in the state of California. The weapons you mistakenly claim to be assault weapons have been modified to be nothing more than really cool looking sporting rifles. They do not have functional magazine releases, they cannot be fit with magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammo and they do not have a bayonet lug. Those are the primary characteristics of an assault weapon. The current cool looking sporting rifle you refer to is California’s number one choice for hunting and for target shooting. And they look really cool. I also see you reference Oakland and East LA. My, my, I was born in East LA in a time when it was a very safe area. My grandmother and I used to walk to Downtown LA to a drug store and enjoy their soda fountain. Those days appear to be gone forever. And for what reason? The following crime rates directly from the Chicago Police Department (murder capital of America which has outlawed guns) may shed a bit of light for the unenlightened average MSNBC Chris Matthews viewer:

Demographics
White — 31.7 percent
Black — 31.4 percent
Hispanic — 32.4 percent
Asian — 7 percent

Murders in Chicago
White — 2.8 percent
Black — 75 percent
Hispanic — 21.8 percent
Asian — 0 percent

Clearly, we in this nation do not have a gun problem, we have a demographic problem brought on by liberal policies that direct these high crime cities, fatherless families, drugs, and general lack of any quality of formal education to pull themselves out of poverty. I look at this as a complete failure of the federal government and liberal policies that keep generational welfare intact in these morally diseased areas. In closing I am providing Mr. Bado a simplified version of the Bill Of Rights granted to Americans by our Founding Fathers, and no Mr. Bado, the Constitution is not a living, breathing document. It is set in stone for a reason, and that reason is to keep people like yourself and others from modifying the true intent in the founding of the United States of America. And that includes you also, Mr. Obama.

The Bill of Rights For Simple Minds:

1st Amendment — We can say whatever we want and believe whatever we want, and the government has no say in it.
2nd Amendment — We have the right to defend ourselves from the government and criminals using firearms.
3rd Amendment — Soldiers and policemen can’t just bust into your house like they own the joint and crash there.
4th Amendment — Police can’t just search people randomly, go through their stuff, ask for their papers, and all that business.
5th Amendment — The government can’t just take stuff or lock people up without a trial.
6th Amendment — Trials have to be speedy and fair.
7th Amendment — People have a right to be judged by other folks who can understand them.
8th Amendment — Judges can’t just straight up rip people off or do cruel and unusual stuff to them.
9th Amendment — Just because it isn’t written down here, doesn’t mean people don’t have other rights.
10th Amendment — If the Constitution doesn’t say that the government can do something, it can’t do it. The people and the states have all the powers not otherwise given to the federal government.

We in this nation do not have a gun problem, we have a demographic problem fed by liberal, Democrat policies keeping people on their plantation.
