Why Do We Need To Plead For Our Rights When Some Crazy Goes On A Shooting Rampage?

Gun Rights and the Second Amendment


I remember at my second job when I went to work for a big corporation there were people that would abuse privileges and take advantage of a good thing. And guess how management would deal with the problem? Instead of dealing with the person directly responsible for abusing a privilege, they would take away or severely restrict that privilege for everyone. That is exactly what is happening with current gun control legislation the so-called bosses of society are trying to do push on all of us now.

Instead of realizing the nature of man guarantees there will always be crazy people in society and people that will abuse the system and that as best we can we have to deal with those people, the ruling elite decide to take away Constitutionally guaranteed rights from everyone. And instead of dealing with issues of mental health, the breakdown of the family, rampant and glorified violence in movies and video games and domestic violence issues, our leader point to guns as the cause of that violence.

With that said, Robert Steed spoke before a gun control hearing on March 14th in Vernon, Connecticut giving an exceptional testimony trying to explain to the panel the nature of how evil works and liberty in light of the fact that evil does and will always exist. Mr Steed early in his testimony said, “Adam Lanza commits a crime, and I’m here to grovel and plead for my rights and explain to you that my firearms are kept safely? I keep hearing the word ‘solution’… you’re not going to find a solution, it doesn’t exist. You can’t find a broad brush solution to evil.”

And later after an exchange with some of the panel members, Mr Steed closed with this statement, "The reason that your jobs are becoming so difficult is because you’re coloring outside the lines of constitutional parameters. That’s the bottom line. You are trying to marriage up public safety with constitutional rights. The Constitution did not guarantee public safety, it guaranteed liberty. And sometimes what comes with liberty is tragedy, unfortunately.”
