It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World!
Back in the 1960’s there was a movie: It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World! It had all kinds of stars who were involved in a cross-country race for a huge prize. You might call it the pot at the end of the rainbow. The craziness that ensued was amusing, because it was not real. Just a movie.
My Mother had a saying that we often heard, “Sometimes I think the whole world is crazy, but me and thee, and sometimes I think thou art.”
I lived through the craziness that was the 1960’s and 1970’s. Back then, the crazies blew up buildings and robbed banks. They didn’t kill school children. Yes, there were crazies. There are always crazies.
To demand that the good people be disarmed because the crazies are killing school children, is crazy. If there were no guns, the crazies would use knives, axes or swords. If those were banned, the crazies would use baseball bats, tire irons or chains.
Banning weapons of self-defense punishes the innocent. Period. If you can’t see that you are as crazy as the crazies. Yes, there is evil in this world. There always has been, and always will be. We have free choice. Some choose evil. Most choose good. That is life. Learn to live with it. If you have children, it is up to you to protect them, not the “authorities”. The “authorities” (police) will arrive too late. Your child will be dead. Or your wife will be dead. Or your aged parents will be dead.
Did the police prevent Columbine? Sandy Hook? Las Vegas? The recent Florida school shooting? No. They arrived in time to process the crime, but many died. Too many.
Those who would prevent us from owning weapons for self-defense, want us to be subservient slaves. History shows us this is the endgame. Is this what you want? Is this what you want for your children, and their children?
Hitler, Stalin and Mao disarmed their countrymen, and then killed tens of millions of them. Does this tell you anything?
If Trump wants to serve two terms, he’d better not try to disarm the people of this country. If he wants civil war, he will make the attempt. Mr. President, why is it that you are considering raising the age for buying “certain types of weapons”? At eighteen years of age you are legally an adult. You can serve in the military and use guns, but suddenly that isn’t good enough? Because some crazy attacks school children in a “Gun Free Zone”, suddenly everything is different?
I’m certain my Mother was right. The whole world is crazy.
