We as citizens of the United States are constantly brainwashed about many different things. But there is one in particular. One of the big topics brought up by our political representatives and displayed in the media over and over again is “Gun control”.
We are told that without gun laws, we are not safe from people who own firearms. For example politics continue to bring up that shootings could erupt at any moment from people who legally conceal, which is completely ludicrous. In fact, the very people who are constantly ridiculed for being armed will be the only people saving your ass in time of need. Police officers may not always be there right when needed; for example in recent news a 13 year old boy was home alone, when two men tried to break into his house, he opened fire and killed one of the men who happened to be a 6 time felon. What if that young boy did not have access to a gun? Would he have still been alive today?
It is sad that shootings throughout the world and especially in our own country are wake up calls for us as humans; and an even more sickening realization is how our political figures use such events such as mass shootings and in recent news, the killings in France, to strengthen their political campaigns. No more than a month later, the tragedy will be forgotten by the press and we will move on to the next big story, leaving behind only the affected families and close friends to deal with the pain and suffering with the results of the tragedy. France is literally a gun free zone and somehow people with assault rifles shoot over one-hundred unarmed civilians; it’s crazy to think that in a gun free zone you are safe from attacks like this just because there is a law “protecting” you. It is safe to say that the status of the people in power in this great country is more important than the well-being of the people of this nation.
The sad truth behind all of this is that we have been brainwashed for so long that it will only take a tragic event like we have experienced in the past to wake people up from this idea that we still live in a perfect world. If you think tragedies like we see in the news all the time could not happen to you, or people around you are, then you are sadly mistaken. If we look we can see the chaos going on all around the world today; we as a people need to stand together and be prepared for what is to come before it is too late. Whether the the media wants to admit it or not, there will continue to be violence in this country and if we are not armed i believe this country will be weakened in a time where it is crucial to be strong. Are you truthfully at peace with your life being put in our government’s hands? If not you have to do what is best for you and your family and arm yourself and prepare for the worst. Don’t be brainwashed into not having a gun to protect yourself and the ones you love.
