More BS from the White House about Gun Control

First of all, this is going to be a serious rant. So if you don’t want to read my rant, don’t continue.
OK… here goes.
There was another school (read: Gun Free Zone) shooting. Quite frankly, I am fed up with the ridiculous notion that people have that putting up a sign that bans weapons from a place will actually result in zero weapons ever being there! First and foremost… who are the people who commit these violent acts? Certainly not law abiding gun owners. In fact, almost every single one of the perpetrators in the school shootings over the last 3 decades have been:
1) mentally ill
2) criminals (for the less speedy among us, that means someone who doesn’t pay any attention to the law)
So, what is the first reaction of the progressive left “intelligencia”? More ineffective (and usually unconstitutional) gun laws. So, you’re saying that someone who doesn’t follow the law, will follow a new law? If that’s what you think, you are dangerously delusional!
So, what do we need to do to get a handle on this?
1) stop blaming guns and gun owners for violence perpetrated with a gun. In many cases, lives are saved by law abiding gun owners being in a position to stop these mental cases by either confronting them and making them stand down, or eliminating the threat by shooting them.
2) stop allowing mentally ill people to be on the streets without proper treatment/medications and monitoring/supervision. If that means permanently institutionalizing someone, so be it!
3) let’s follow the Swiss model, where all adults are required to own a firearm (they are the militia/defense force). Switzerland has an extremely low rate of violent crime… and that’s no coincidence!
If you don’t like guns, don’t own one. But stop telling me that I can’t and shouldn’t, as a law abiding citizen, own a gun… it’s one of those pesky things in the Constitution… it’s a right, and it is not given to me by government. It’s given to me to make sure, among other things, that the government doesn’t become a tyrannical dictatorship!
