Will We, Ever, Say, ENOUGH, To Gun Violence?
How many more, must die, before, enough Americans, articulate a message, similar, the famous line, from the movie, Network, which proclaims, I’m mad as hell, and not Rhino Revolver 30DS Hunter going to take it any more? Even though, public polls, indicate, the public, overwhelming, support, some sane gun control measures, including: better background checks; eliminating huge gun clips; reducing access to automatic weapons; licensure; mental health testings, etc, the politicians, especially, President Donald Trump, and his enablers, seem, because of either, political motives (financial, etc), or other reasons, continue, to refuse, to take, meaningful, responsible actions, for the common good! Haven’t we had, ENOUGH, of this type of political leadership? With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and, why, Americans must, become less apathetic, or we will all suffer.
- Empathy; emphasis; education: Whenever, the opponents of sane gun control, wish to build – up, opposition to any measures, they, use the same, playbook, which is to try, to create fear, from gun owners. They always, discuss, so – called, 2nd Amendment Rights, yet, distort, this, by claiming, they are entitled to own guns. The reality is, however, and has been affirmed by two past Supreme Court Justices, the right to bear arms, had to do, with state militias, and, since, most states had few sources of revenue, their volunteer militia members, would need to own their own gun. In fact, as recently as the middle part of the 20th Century, this explanation was rarely used. When any personal right, interferes with those of others, to live, safely, and securely, change is needed! The officials, who refuse to listen, and won’t proceed with genuine empathy, and an emphasis, on a balance between owning a gun, and doing so, responsibly, need greater education, compassion, and willingness to serve the common/ greater good!
