An Irrational, but Rational Argument

During today’s headline review one in particular caught me square between the eyes; “Boston Bomber Memorialized as Gun Victim by Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Movement.” What? I thought we were only crying over poor little school kids killed by crazies? Since when do we memorialize a radical Islamic terrorist shot and killed  by a very legitimate officer of the law in a state where guns are forbidden. Had this same terrorist been shot in Arizona or Texas, he would have been by a citizen.

What I am about to say will no doubt raise the hairs of all police officers in the  country, let “We the People” keep our guns, but disarm the police. The best facts I could dig up from the notoriously incorrect internet is that in year 2012, police officers  nation-wide shot and killed 587 perps in the line of duty. Had we denied police the right to carry a gun, we would have saved 587 people from an ugly death. Think of all the good those people might have done for society. Compare that to losing twenty-six kids to the bullets of a crazy person. Yes, those twenty-six little angels could have grown up to become the greatest and best people on the face of the earth, but a crazy person chose to memorialize his suicide by killing them. I can argue the same for the 587 killed by police in the line of duty. How will we know if one of the 587 might have straightened out to become the country’s next president?

This analogy is preposterous and far-fetched to make a point, i.e. we can argue senseless deaths until we are blue in the face, and never stop innocent people from being killed by bullets. (Remember all the perps killed by the cops were innocent until proven guilty). Here is a question to consider? If we take away every gun from Americans, will we do the same to the police?  Remember, if we disarm the cops we have to take away the second concealed weapon he carries, and the third he might have in his car too, or else who knows what might happen in the dead of night.

Here are some more ways to look at the argument.

In 2011, there were  32,163 reported gun related deaths caused by “We the People.” In that same year the cops killed 587 with bullets. When I compared the ratio of deaths by the total police officers to the total number of officers employed, the police won. There are 683,396 police employed in the US over a population of 313,900,000 souls. Death by a cop’s gun comes to .08% where deaths by “We the People” is .01%. What this tells me is that we are eight times more likely to die by the gun of a police officer than by the gun of another citizen crazy or not.

A few days ago, our Senate narrowly defeated a bill to pass the United Nations Treaty to ban guns which Obama will purportedly sign. The Progressives hell-bent on destroying the sovereignty of the United States by handing over our Second Amendment to the virtuous United Nations lost by a mere four votes. Thank God there were a few Democrat Senators who still love the country. My own Senator Durbin from Illinois voted for the gun ban treaty. In my eyes he is a traitor. In my eyes, Obama will commit an impeachable offense by signing that treaty, it also makes him a traitor. All that treaty will do is to make America more vulnerable to those trying to destroy us. The treaty violates the Second Amendment . The President took an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, which he will violate by signing the treaty. Of course, he realizes he is making a political argument against those opposed to the violation. He knew the treaty would never pass through Congress.

Here are my proposals:

Keep the Constitution

Keep the Bill of Rights, but add one more to:

1. limit the total number  terms a Senator  and Congressman can serve,

2. delegate “We the People” to approve all raises and fringe benefits awarded to the Congress,

3. impose upon all Leaders, including the President, the same health care and pensions as “We the People”,

4. includes Leaders to live under the same laws as “We the People,”

5. hold all Leaders financially, morally, and ethically responsible for laws they passed for the duration of their life,

6. limit the total wealth a Leader can accumulate while serving to that equal to his salary by the number of years he serves.

7. limit Congressional staff to whatever the home State or District appropriates

8. define the term “natural born citizen,” and require proof of same by those running for office

Lose Obama

Lose the Progressives.

CAN I HAVE AN AMEN?

  1. Four logical Democrats. Thanking God right now! Whew!

  2. AMEN and AMEN. Durbin and the rest of the liberal JACKASS’S should all step down before our constitution is completely gone. if they come for the guns, they will have to remove mine from dead fingers.

  3. Complicated proposals. I would suggest a lot simpler, and probably pretty effective. Term limits. Period.

      I’d take what ever we can get. Thanks for commenting.

  4. Big problem with your amendment. Congress (whose ox is being gored) will never let that amendment get anywhere. Other than that, it’s a super idea!

    • Sad ain’t it?

  6. You have an Amen Sir! Somethings got to change.

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia? I've spent 14 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
