Promoting Responsible Gun Ownership

By Glenn

Rewriting the Second Amendment has made us all less safe, particularly Police Officers and Children. Guns should be treated like cars. Owners should be trained, licensed and have insurance, then we could have real responsible gun ownership.

The authors of the Constitution understood their own language.  In fact, they confronted many of the same issues that we do today.  Madison and Jefferson knew guns and college campuses don’t mix well.

No Student shall, within the precincts of the University, introduce, keep or use any \spirituous/ or vinous liquors, keep or use weapons or arms of any kind, or gunpowder, keep a servant, horse or dog, appear in school with a stick, or any weapon, nor, while in school, be covered without permission of the Professor, nor use tobacco by smoking or chewing, on pain of any of the minor punishments at the discretion of the Faculty, or of the board of Censors, approved by the Faculty.

Yet the conservative media and politicians continue to push false narratives that are historically ignorant and intellectual dishonest.  No, gun control didn’t promote the rise of Hitler.  Hitler played on racial hatred, a sense of victimization and a “call to arms.”  No, Europe and the Jews did not submit quietly to Nazism.  The German people voted to support a vast war machine built to impose the master race’s will.

We are not helpless in the face of these senseless massacres.  We should not tolerate this insane fetish.  We can, and should, demand responsible gun ownership.
