Concealed Carry

This notion that we must do something, anything is a notion of defeat. It is rather depressing that we as a society blame inanimate objects for these murders and not level the blame where it belongs. The shooters bare the brunt of responsibility, and then there is us, the brothers, mothers, husbands, kids, and cousins we are wrapped up in our apathy we don't see whats in front of our eyes. We blame guns so we as human beings can displace our responsibility. Making Gun free zones only hinders those who legally desire defense. Defense from the known dangers of life. We don't seek to be hero's, we don't want notoriety, we only seek to protect our lives and those around us.

This idea of self protect is not an idea, but a right and a desire to protect ourselves specific property and those around us if and when necessary. We can not rely on the police to protect us, it is not their job according to the Supreme Court of the US. It is the individuals responsibility to present that service when needed. Police are rarely nearby or within range to respond to and prevent violence. By banning the carry of firearms in public buildings they only leave those people vulnerable to violence, willing or unwilling victims of some future violence, the problem is you decided to take that decision from us. This does not protect anyone as we see with the multitude of mass shootings often occurring in gun free zones. These laws that are proposed are not new, they have been used over and over always with the same results each time. What is it called when you do the same things over and over and expects a different result? The answer is the obvious INSANITY IIRC. Gun Control laws are failures , gun free zones failures, Even the 86 firearms protection act is a failure and only punished those who follow the laws, I wish I could convince people of their corrupt positions when it comes to their desire to do something to stop gun violence. You can do nothing about violence, even locking people up 23 hours a day, they commit violent acts all the time in prison, so the idea you can prevent it is naive at minimum. I could go on and on about why it is bad to limit our ability to defend our selves but I have pointed out so many why go on.
