Gun-controllers missed opportunities



The pro gun-control marchers missed the opportunity to extol:

Getting more fathers to participate in the lives of their children.

Removing the gun "mystique" through gun safety courses.

What to do and not do if their children find or see a gun.

Spending more time with your children, explaining what is and is not acceptable behavior at home, in school and in public.

Some misconceptions:

There is no constitutional right to be protected by the state against being murdered by criminals or madmen.

There is no government duty to protect you. A 911 call can take up to 19 minutes to respond.

Do you expect a police officer earning $25,000-$30,000 per year to place their lives on the line when you fail to take minimal steps to protect yourself against intruders?

Some facts:

Guns are already registered upon purchase and after getting an FBI background check.

A constitutional right cannot be licensed, nor can we pick and choose which rights we will support or suppress.

A citizen is armed whereas a subject is disarmed.

Gun control is people control.
