U.S. Gun Obsession —

Actually, I believe America’s gun obsession is rooted in the Constitution.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

There’s historical reasoning behind America’s tight grip on the right to bear arms, but it’s not rooted in slavery. Do you know what that history is?

Our “obsession” with guns isn’t about race, it’s about the right to defend oneself. This goes for men and women, white people, black people, gay people, straight people, nonbinary people, and all other people.

You know, Americans.

Cure the reasons why people want to kill in the first place, and you won’t have to worry about outlawing every tool they use to kill with.

    Constitutionally, the only people the gov’t (TM) has the right to control the gun use of are it’s own employees. And if there’s anything we’ve learned well in the last few years (thank you, left-leaners) is that that’s where the gun control is really needed: with on-duty police.

    How many private citizens need to die wrongfully at their hands before the gov’t (TM) starts implementing gun control on the only people they actually have a right to and are able to control?
