Home Made Guns

Some have the allusion that it takes a big factory to build guns.  Yet, David Marshall Williams made a semi-automatic rifle while incarcerated in prison.  He built it in the prison machine shop.

Basically, it was the one used by hundreds of thousands of soldiers during WWII.  In some some ways, it was a better gun for war than those that were designed and built in the big factories.

I have no doubt that a good blacksmith with the proper tools can build rifles or sidearms with nothing more than a little of the right raw materials and a few good tools.

Some might want to consider that when they say we should make guns illegal.  At least the ones we have now have serial numbers and can be traced to some degree.  If people start making them in basements, we won’t know where they come from, or, for that matter, what country they come from.

 

Back to Bible Days

Maybe it is time for us to return to the days we taught the Bible and Biblical principles in schools.  Maybe it is time to put prayer back in school.  It certainly hasn’t helped us much by taking Christianity out of our classrooms.

Some might want to convince the world that the one thing has nothing to do with the other.  Yet, the Bible does teach us not to murder.  It is Christian to love one another.  What wonderful principles does atheism have to offer.

It would appear to me that, as a nation, we have made a big mistake by taking God out of our schools and now we are suffering the unintended consequences: death, pain and suffering.

Predictable

Stalin said, “Kill a man, it is murder.  Kill a million, it is a statistic. ” It would appear that a man decided to create some statistics; he killed 59.  Let’s try to keep these victims from becoming nothing more than a number.  Those who have died and those who survived were and are real people.

The news media give us the numbers and the name of the killer.  Personally, I’d rather that they not ever mention the name of the man.  He should remain anonymous to the public forever.  It would send a message to any future killers.

Everything possible should be done to keep the victims from being statistics, mere numbers.  I’m not sure how we could do this, but we could start by giving them a little respect.  No one should treat them as political pawns.

It is totally predictable that Hillery and other liberals should use them to convince us that there are not enough gun laws.  Predictable as it was, it surprised even me at her speed.  Her response was within micro-seconds.  Their exploitation of their death is shameful and unforgivable .

You want to argue against or for guns, let us at least wait until we have a time to grieve a week or so.

As a final note, let me leave you with a thought.  Laws do not prevent anything.  Civilizations have had laws against robbery from the very beginning.  Yet we still have robberies.  We have always had laws against murder.  Yet we still have murders.  We have laws against driving at excessive speeds.  Yet when I obey them, people pass me up left and right.  (Oddly, I have even had police officers get angry at me.)

The best we can hope for is to discourage those who would break the laws.  No one can stop the criminal, no matter what the laws.  If we made laws against guns, there would still be guns.  More important, there would still be murders.  The worst part is… most of the murders are done by those who lead countries… like the Soviet Union, Cuba and Venezuela.  Strange that the liberals are not anxious to rid the world of leaders like those in North Korea and Iran, though threaten the obliteration of millions.

They don’t seem to mind them making their own statistics.  It’s not surprising.  It’s totally predictable.
