Bullets Or The Ballot Box…

2018-01-24_15-52-48I believe that I live in a country that is just as flawed, but in different ways, as most others in the world today.  One of the most serious flaws is that we have an inordinate love of our guns. Our culture is primarily centered around violence. We are four percent of the world’s population, yet own almost fifty percent of the world’s guns.

But there is one characteristic of this country that leaves me with hope and pride and a feeling that we can survive just about anything that the world throws at us.  That characteristic is that we as a nation of people settle our differences at the ballot box instead of with bullets.

I know in the middle of our three hundred year existence that we managed to kill a half million of ourselves over the idea that one human being can own another.  Thankfully that war ended on the moral side of things and even more so that it is the only time we have taken up guns against each other.  We are pretty unique in that regard and all you have to do to see that is look at the history of just about any other country.

Resolving our conflicts with our ballot instead of bullets does result in two and four year periods where we have to put up with our serious mistakes. This is one of those periods. We will start remedying that mistake this coming November and finally drive the unstable narcissist out of office in twenty-four months after that.

Yes, I am extremely proud that we settle our major differences with our ballots instead of with our bullets. That fact alone makes me proud to call myself an American.

Let’s Get Rid of ALL Gun Controls..

2017-10-07_13-47-05.pngYou heard me right in the title above.  There is so much opposition to gun control now that I think we should just open up the purchase of guns to anyone who wants them . If you already have a hundred guns but want more then by all means you should be able to get them. If you want every one of your guns to have a bump-stock by all means buy as many as you want.  That’s what the free market system is all about isn’t it?  The NRA can finally be proud of me for my revised stand on guns. As my blood red friends say Guns don’t kill people…

Ok now for the kicker ( you knew there had to be one), I don’t believe that guns kill people either. What kills them are bullets so let’s regulate the hell out of buying bullets. Guns don’t kill people, bullets do. The 2nd amendment doesn’t say anything about bullets. If you want to join a militia to protect our country as was the actual purpose of the second amendment then you supply your gun and the government will supply the bullets.

canstockphoto39651775.jpgIf you spend every weekend shooting your guns as many of our red citizens claim they do then on Monday take our your empty shells to the bullet store and get up to one box (number in a box – to be determined) of new bullets.  But in order to buy bullets you gotta trade in your empty shells.

With this solution the gun folks who point out that knives also kill people will really learn that lesson. If you want to, you can use your gun as a club and beat someone to death with it then you are finally comparing apples to apples when it comes to knives and other such weapons.
