People point to three sets of causes when talking about events such as the Newtown, Conn., shootings. First, the psychology of the killer; second, the environment of violence in our popular culture; and, third, easy access to guns. Any one of these might explain a single shooting. What we should be trying to understand is not one single event but why we have so many of them.
Lets look at the facts. According to the U.N.'s office on drugs and crime, the U.S. gun homicide rate is 30 times that of France or Australia and it is 12 times higher than the average for other developed countries. Why is that?
Watch the video for the full take.
How about we do away with:
The Right to Freedom of Speech
The Right to Vote
The Right to Freedom of the Press. “This Blog Site”
The Right to Travel any where in the U.S.A. with out proper papers
The right to Marry the Person of YOUR Choice
The Right to Have AS MANY Children that you want "IE China"
The Right to OWN a HOME
The Right to Work and Receive Pay for Your Labors
The Right to Own a Baseball Bat
The Right to Own a Knife
The Right to LIVE IN PEACE and raise you family.
Nazi Germany restricted most of these rights and made people carry papers just to go see grandma.
The USSR did the same thing until their fall in the 80s. China, North Korea, Iran just to name a few restricts their people today.
Gun owner ship is a right not a privilege.
Hate this right but to take it away is just as wrong as taking away those listed above.
Just remember this SICK YOUNG MAN who killed those BABIES and their Teachers, if he had lived would speed about 5 to 10 year on a hospital and then go home. What kind of justice is this?
Most of you would not support the death penalty for him because it would make you feel real bad and have bad dreams.
spend not speed....spell checker hahah
