If I am such a wicked person as to go on a mindless killing spree, do you honestly believe that taking away my gun is going to stop me from finding another way? I'm sorry I didn't read the sign "No Defense Weapons Allowed"... oh wait, no I'm not. You know I'm a criminal, right?
I find it strange how researchers debate on whether or not violent video-games could be linked to these psychopaths, and their evil plots. Yet these same people design ads, with famous actors telling people "How long is this violence going to continue?". Watch a few of their films, watch how they blow up buildings and murder profusely. It seems to me they use make-belief as an excuse, only when it's convenient for their agenda.
And just look at Obama. He seems to have taken advice from ole pal Hitler, protesting against guns in the guise of protecting children (and we all know how well that turned out). They soon took over knowing they had the upper hand. They dressed it up in good intentions, and then bathed in the glory of their own cleverness.
Nowadays a policeman's main job is body count. Just dial 911 and they'll be there in six minutes flat! But the damage is already done. Doesn't anyone remember that geezer in the Shell Station? Yeah, we all had a laugh seeing the old man take care of the situation, scaring off the frightened robbers. But did anyone absorb the message he had to give? It's sad how Gangam Style took over and hardly anyone even remembers this video. But I do.
You don't have to look inside your heart and take a long arduous task at soul searching, to know the right thing to do. It's been embedded into our very nature, since the beginning of time, to defend our loved ones at all costs. I hope someday people will remember that Common Sense wasn't always a superpower, but a gift from God, intended for all mankind.
NOTE: I know this is bound to cause some controversy, but I've done the research, and stand by my views 100 percent. I'm sorry if this offends you, but being any different than the person I truly am, would be a lie. And I don't take well to dishonesty...
