Gary On Gun Rights In America

Everyday in every country in the world someone is murdered. It might be at the hands of a government bomb. A soldiers gun, or a civilians rifle.This happens where guns are legal, or illegal. It never seems to matter what the laws of a given place are. Someone decides that killing is ok and takes another life. For centuries man has been killing man. Every religious book ever written details how it is wrong to take life yet always seems to find an excuse for circumstances where killing is ok. From an infidel to a religious crusader, murder in the name of MY GOD is ok. History is replete with those who have risen to power, used weapons of mass destruction to eradicate the invader,the infidel,the immoral,the group which doesn't see things my way. From Hitler to George Bush, war is ok because someone else is trying to kill us. Or will try. When America was founded as a country no one really cared for many years. Suddenly England realized that this large continent had wealth. Massive resources, which were being reaped by some. So as is typical, taxes were assigned to those who seemed to profit. Even though the work and toil was not theirs someone decided that they deserved payment. So there was a revolt and as is typical soldiers were dispatched to "control" those who refused to bow down to a "higher" power. America was born out of a simple ideal. That each man has God given rights. That freedom at an individual level was a "Right" not a gift for a few. Yesterday America, land of the free, in an effort to preserve "individual freedom" dropped bombs on a hospital. A place dedicated to helping the sick and wounded. This happens in every "war". Sometimes I am sure by genuine accident, but many times on purpose. There is never accountability for these accidents. It is as if magically because I did it-it's ok. Oops accidents happen. There will always be a dictator, a Monarch, or even a democratically elected president who decides to declare war because I am the moral compass for my society. I will protect my people-at the point of a gun or bomb. When our constitution was written gun rights were written in for just this reason. Because there is always someone who will use there guns and bombs to take what is not theirs, will harm for oil, or property, or airspace rights, or simply beacuse they do not like you. The "RIGHT" to defend ones personal space was made law.


People say oh my government will never attack it's own people. Yet when you look at history you find this is far from the truth. From a historical perspective it is far more likely that the opposite is true. The Hitlers of the world always seem to start small, then find some GOD given right to attack there own people. No one can ever keep everyone safe, no one can promise you an environment without harm. This is just a simple truth. An unarmed populas might be safer for awhile, but suddenly a man with a mission appears and that population is no longer safe. I personally have faced several men with guns, or knives, or a "stun gun" who decided that my property or that of others "belonged" to them, because they held a gun. When I produced a gun, they ran. Realizing that suddenly the tables were turned and their Advantage was no longer valid. A man can use morality, Ideals, Good Sense even to disarm a populace. His personal intentions are probably good. But lets the look at that man. Will he then use bombs or weapons of destruction later to enforce his countries will, or morality. History shows this to be true. Even the "Morally Right" kill. Would the government have backed down at the Bundy ranch if no one had been armed?-Doubtful. The issue with gun rights isn't that people will be safer without them. The obvious is that without weapons people can't hurt others. The not so obvious is that when no one has a gun, someone who does will take what is yours or shoot you in the head. Maybe not today or tomorrow but eventually. So when someone tells you do not worry, just surrender your gun I will protect you, they are 20 miles away and you might be dead by the time they arrive. And that man who will protect you, is a man with a gun. And one day he might choose to use his gun against you.

When Someone Is Blue

Today a good friend here was down and feeling blue. Getting that thought, oh so many problems, so much pain, to many suffering
I certainly am no stranger to these thoughts. The very existence of this profile is because we all need somewhere to see the good in life. The kindness, love and compassion, that is essential for well being and for forming a purposeful life.
To many times I have held the hand of some one who is dying. Listening to the regret of unfulfilled dreams, and the sorrows of a mortal life. But I try to arise every day with a purpose, I choose to hope and dream for a world which is free of strife. On those days when I feel like I should just throw in the towel someone reminds me how precious life is. Often times that's here, right on Facebook. We can as a race fix what is broken. We can unite in a common purpose choosing love over war, peace over animosity. The key is to just never stop talking, never stop acting, at our own personal level. We can change through setting an example in our daily life. Hope is something indomitable. I just use it, and show it-Gary 😊
