There is a section of American Society that are being harassed on a daily basis. A part of the very fabric of the US and its constitution. They are the men and indeed women of America who have to deal with the types of Harassment, hatred, dare I say a hatred of the American way. This harassment of these people is a plight that will not be taken up by a media that is too busy trying to bring actual news of actual people who are actually being harassed.
I want to bring the plight of those whose voices are not heard, they don't get the media attention they crave, nor are their voices taken seriously. Why aren't these people front and centre is the media? That's simple.
They are idiots. Macho men and women who want to have the right to carry their firearms in public. That's right, this 'Harassed' part of society, backed by the idiocy of the NRA, the Right, Constitutional Fundamentalists and lesser media outlets are the hidden Minority, I say hidden but when some people see these AR-15 carrying 'Patriots' they don't think ''Oh look at that little man and his his gun, what a Patriot, I feel so much safer now''.
Lock and Load
I mean seriously, it isn't as if those extremes of open carry can come across as a 'little' dimwitted. Like these Big Men below, look out for the Gentleman is walks in around 3:30 into the video, not only has he got his trusty Weapon strapped to his shoulder but it is what is in his right that should make any proponent of the second amendment throw up in their mouth.
As it stands the diagram below show the states that have reverted to a Wild West attitude towards responsible Gun Ownership.
Now as I said it isn't just the Ammosexual Men that are being discriminated against, Ammosexuality is a cross gender affliction. Like these young women below. Notice how the Policeman in this Video, I don't know how to put it other than 'Doing his Job' harasses these armed women in a Restaurant.
I'm sure the words of one Gun Advocate, Wayne Lapierre are at the front of your mind, ''The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun'' blah blah blah.. well Lapierre in his rush to cover up the mess left at Sandy Hook was a little lacking on how one defines between a bad guy with a gun and a good guy with a Gun.
I'm sure the country is coming down with good guys with guns, I don't doubt for a second that there are those who are simply trying to protect their families whether that be in the home or in the Frozen section at the store or in the queue for the waterslide at the local pool you just never know where that bad guy with the Gun is.
He must think 'The Walking Dead' is a Documentary
Therein is the huge problem that gun advocates will not account for, the problem the NRA cannot account for, even those politicians in the pockets of the Open carry drive to have every American armed and ultimately Extremely dangerous.
HOUSTON — Two students were killed in separate shootings Friday on college campuses in Texas and Arizona, rattling the nerves of students, teachers and parents eight days after a rampage left 10 people dead at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.
Unlike the attack in Oregon and other mass shootings at colleges and schools in recent years, the two on Friday were not so-called active-shooter episodes, but instead appeared to stem from ordinary disputes and altercations that quickly turned violent.
Here in Houston, a shooting outside a student housing complex at Texas Southern University shortly before noon put the campus on lockdown and led administrators to cancel classes for the day. The motive was unknown, but one student was killed and another man wounded. Their names were not released.
When you start down the road of arming everyone, the lines between the good guy and the bad guy become very blurred. Many of you will argue that School Shooters are different as the Bad Guy is clearly defined. There are multiple stories where legally held firearms are being used to settle disputes, From arguments over fences to strip bars, where there is a weapon there's a Tool dumb enough to think using it is a great way to end that dispute.
The idea that having lots of 'Good' guys with guns in any confined space is quite frankly ridiculous. For a start you Open carry people need to understand when you scare the crap out of those who have no need to arm themselves before going to church or as was the case in the Alaska Link provided, a Strip Bar. These are incidents that are not going to lessen with more slack Gun laws and a more armed populus.
How many more disputes will be ending in a Gunfight?
What about larger disputes, you all remember the Bikers in Texas right?
Nine people were killed and several wounded Sunday after a shootout between rival biker groups in Waco, Texas, with more gangs threatening to descend on the town after the violence, local media reported.
Fighting broke out in a restaurant parking lot between three rival groups, with some members using clubs and knives before pulling guns, according to Sergeant W. Patrick Swanton, speaking to CBS affiliate KWTX.
Local news outlets reported that as many as 18 people were wounded, mostly from gunshot and stab wounds, and Swanton told reports that more than 100 weapons were collected from the scene.
Now many of you will say ''Ah, but many of the weapons were illegal'' and no doubt many were illegal. But when you have lots of people with lots of Guns in one place at the same time in a situation where human reactions can be carried out without thinking, a Fight, dispute, argument, disagreement etc. You run the very risk that the human survival mode that instinct tends to be one of Protection first.
The ultimate payoff in all this is very simple. An openly armed society won't cure the ill of Gun Violence. This won't end Weapons getting into the hands of those who should not have them for a variety of reasons.
You are just adding the risk of more deadly Mass Shootouts to go with the already Deadly Mass Shootings that are an almost daily occurrence.
