Second amendment is not a blank check

March 29, 2018

To the editor: I have given a lot of thought to the position of those who would continue to allow the possession of military style weapons by the average citizen....

Just WHO should bear the cost to the public of the extra security required (manpower and equipment) to cope with firearms around our schools, offices, commercial centers, etc ? ?

You have ONE guess ! !

Hey, Connies -- The foregoing should appeal to YOU : It is fiscally responsible ! ! !

"The possession, manufacture and sale of assault weapons in the Village of Deerfield is not reasonably necessary to protect an individual's right of self-defense or the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated militia." So, beginning June 13, banned assault weapons in Deerfield will include semiautomatic rifles with a fixed magazine and a capacity to hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, shotguns with revolving cylinders, and conversion kits from which assault weapons can be assembled. And those are just a few of the firearm varieties banned. The list is long and includes all the following models or duplicates thereof: AK, AKM, AKS, AK-47, AK-74, ARM, MAK90, Misr, NHM 90, NHM 91, SA 85, SA 93, VEPR, AR-10, AR-15, Bushmaster XM15, Armalite M15, Olympic Arms PCR, AR70, Calico Liberty, Dragunov SVD Sniper Rifle, Dragunov SVU, Fabrique NationalFN/FAL, FN/LAR, FNC, Hi-Point Carbine, HK-91, Kel-Tec Sub Rifle, SAR-8, Sturm, Ruger Mini-14, and more.

GENUINE Conservatives -- The ones who look BOTH ways -- are never a problem. . It's the FAKE ones with either WATERY or DEAD consciences who consider only money and how they might get more NOW, d**n the consequences to others and sometimes even to themselves in the long run.

No, antico : NOT Republicans, a once honorable political party.

Rather, their usurpers, the RETHUGLICANS ! ! !

We are witnessing once again the triumph of malignant political propaganda, which results in an acquired malady, indeed one which nearly destroyed the German people.

Should Republican Conservatives even have a place n the gun debate? There is a case to be made they are the problem. Maybe to the extent u engage street gangs to get them to become part of the process can u justify even listening to the Right Wing.

“Despite the nation's focus on Islamic terrorism since 9/11, homegrown, right-wing extremists have killed dozens of Americans. Since 2001, the number of violent attacks on U.S.soil inspired by far-right ideology has spiked to an average of more than 300 a year, Due to the ethnocentric (bigotry) motivations behind these policies, they are classified as right-wing populists and create a climate of 'us versus them. For at least a generation, rightwing homegrown extremists have been far and away the largest source of terrorism in the United States. The most damaging domestic terrorist attack ever committed on American soil was the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City.”

Now the truly mad as a hatter Allen Wollschdts uses this public forum to call for the mass random murder by firing squad of legal gun owning citizens of the USA a hundred at a time... a new low even for allenwoll as he continues to get more angry, agitated, and irrational..weekly. Probably snapped fully. Agree with J99.. Completely out of control. Maybe the good guys are on vacation? Lets hope so.. Help?

Gloria, I have earlier suggested that Gunnies be required to volunteer 2 to 3 days per month per weapon in our classrooms : NO TAKERS SO FAR ! ! !

I think that that tells us all we need to know about their character and patriotism, let alone their humanity and compassion ! ! !

Is there no one in charge at The Breeze that can monitor, control and rightfully ban the very very sick comments and constant mindless harassment from allenwoll??? What an embarrassment for this paper and Cape Coral! Why is this allowed to continue?? Disgusting!

Let's pick 100 Gunnies at random and put them before a firing squad for each child murdered while attending school.

THAT would likely induce some much needed CLARITY into the present murky Gunnie-"Think" ! ! !

There is not an amendment, right or statement of the constitution that cannot be changed or “reinterpreted” to remove a threat to the general public. That is what is called for in my opinion.

DrC, I fail to see anything about shoulder fired L.A.W. s, howitzers or turret mounted 50cals either. Try to buy one. For that matter the same applies to the M-16. Try to buy one.

This push for less lethal guns carpeting America is going to come down to the choice of the voters. Right now it is looking like there may be change coming. I hope so. I wouldn’t mind paying for apparatus to reduce the clip/magazines capacity of my own if it’s the law of the land.

But Dr..anti loves his weapons and would say anything..lolol.. On his last purchase he crowed loudly about..his "new sexy weapons" end quote. You see, his assault arsenal is ok..just not mine.."sexy" even.. sexy? Maybe a case of Tiny Hands Syndrome? Dealing with this mentality is like Veteran Grumpy trying to logically and calmly explain and educate Glorygal (whose "libby logic" on guns is totally emotion based as she is led around by a carrot on a stick)But its really a waste of time...after all where has "lilly liberal" Glory been for the last decades while minorities murder each other by the thousands in Democrat controlled city wastelands? With handguns.. not long guns. Suddenly Gloria becomes an anti-gun zealot and expert that wouldn't know a BB gun from a pellet rifle. Join The NRA Today and help fund the fight against "liberal" mass mental illness.

Cont'd from below

Another popular argument is the need for Personal Protection, which again seems doomed at the outset. . Earlier, I have invited readers to tell us their stories, where the solution to a situation potentially dangerous to their person involved the display or use of a firearm. . I got ONE response – invalid -- because the responder was a deputy, obliged to wade in. . The claim of a need for Personal Protection is thus just another myth – Period, End of Story ! ! !

So, what is left ? ? ? . I will listen.

Here are three popular but irrelevant or mythical arguments for the widespread keeping of firearms by the general public --

Firstly, any attempt to compare the hazards to the public of automobiles to those of firearms is doomed at the outset : Automobiles are NOT designed to kill, whereas firearms are specifically designed to kill -- Period, End of Story ! ! !

Next up typically is the issue of “Rights” – To live calmly vs to possess a firearm. . Again, comparison is doomed at the outset : Every individual has the right to enjoy life without the experience of bullets whizzing by their ears or penetrating their bodies, at random times. . A claim that the Right to Possess a firearm overwhelms the Right to Bodily Safety is totally absurd -- Period, End of Story ! ! !

Cont-d above

anticorp Christianity..or any religion..has no business in this discussion. Not only should one read the 2nd Amendment...but one must also read what the other Framers said about its purpose. If you are afraid to own a firearm, or, if you just do not like them, that is your choice. I may not like your right to free speech, but I respect your right to it nonetheless.

Now we are back to the same old anticorp angry hypocrisy show as in do as say..not as I do. For a total hypocrite as you we must get you another bib so you can dribble from both sides of your pie hole like Brother Chihuahua. First our local undisputed President Of The Lee County Libby Liar and Hypocrites Club is crowing loudly about his quote, "new sexy weapons" now a different, totally different tune..everyone should have slingshots cept Uncle Sam (and Lil angry antisense)lolol This IS the -0- credibility lib zealot that also told us and I quote, "Shouting down those you don't agree with is not limiting their free speech rights" end quote. These are the dangerous irrational crazed angry libby zealot hypocrites that need monitoring, exposing, and be kept far away from stealing your and my rights by continuing to ban lib ignorance and control from our Government and our lives as a free people in the USA.

There is no justifying America being awash in these dangerous guns.

Less than .04% of American annual deaths are caused by airplanes and they are rigidly controlled, regulated and some types are forbidden. An individual cannot own and buy armament for Stealth Fighters, the F-16 or F-18 hornet.

The dozens of ARs and offensive assault weapons and their enhancements like large capacity magazines must be regulated for use only for national defense (military, nat. guard, reserves and special units of law enforcement). Even hand guns need to be re-regulated to tame them down for reasonable self defense. Thrill seeking gun enthusiast need to be limited to special clubs that are regulated to private sites. All WoWs need to be outlawed for private ownership.

We have all heard the Wing Nuts "Trumpet" their "book learning" about guns. Too bad they don't take their empathy doctrines of Christianity as seriously.

You need to get over your mansplaning about the difference in military vs civilian versions of these over kill defensive or offensive weapons. U are not fooling anyone and changing the focus on reducing the threat of these weapons of mass destruction.

Gloria, please get educated on just what a military weapon is. Sport versions are not the same as military style weapons either. Military weapons fire on full auto. The military versions of the AR15 or AR16 fire three rounds with each pull of the trigger. That is military. Those that civilians own are semi auto. Eaach pull of the trigger fires one round. There is that big difference between the two. we do have a well regulated militia. I belong to it as does every Veteran. Our oath when we enlisted was never rescinded upon discharge from the military. We can, and some do, serve at the convenience of the government. Many Vietnam Veterans were called back to fight in Iraq, not once, but several times. So, in closing, the second amendment is totally correct about the militia.

Glory seems a well intentioned person but sadly duped and "liberal" ignorant. When folks start talking about banning military "style" weapons..that's where it just gets silly. It's either a full blown machine gun "assault" military war weapon or a civilian legal semi-auto target/hunting rifle like my AR's and AK's. In Gloryworld if its black and-LOOKS LIKE- an M-16 actually war weapon..its bad? Lib silly G. Glory now what will u do with the 50 of other models of rifles that don't-look like-a war weapon but are still as lethal? They ok? No? So ban basically everything? How silly and led by the libby nose. Glory? No LTE's moanin about the thousands of minorities killing each other in Democrat ruined cities with handguns? Only 3% of crime with rifles! Don't care because they are black? Where does Glory's libby hypocrisy and ignorance end and possible racism start? Stop watching The View Glorygal - it's mind rotting.
