When will Congress learn? If ever..?
Regarding my opening statement as the title of this article, it makes one wonder what the Founding Fathers would imagine and gaud forbid, even think about what their legislative branch of government has evolved into. The notion that Presidents’ Jefferson, Madison, Washington believed that far too much power had been aligned to the legislative branch was changed prior to the Constitution being ratified by all 13 colonies.
In yesterday’s writing I happened to mention “given the approval rating of congress,” and left out the figure. According to Gallup the approval rating of Congress is at a low of 14 percent. In my humbled opinion, as long as congress receives funds from special interest groups, let’s face it — as long as congress continues to function in its pampered, loads of entitlements, and run by the whistle of their own laws we will always have a problem.
Now on to Gun Control —
The mass shooting in Roseburg, Ore. has reignited debate over gun control and gun rights in the United States.
Below are a series of questions drawn from what people have been asking via social media.
“Gun control” is a broad term that covers any sort of restriction on what kinds of firearms can be sold and bought, who can possess or sell them, where and how they can be stored or carried, what duties a seller has to vet a buyer, and what obligations both the buyer and the seller have to report transactions to the government.
Sometimes, the term is also used to cover related matters, like limits on types of ammunition and magazines, or technology, like the type that allows guns to fire only when gripped by their owners.
Well like it or not these aspirations have never and will never have an outcome on “mass shootings.” First and foremost the gigantic federal government is in conflict with itself insofar as owning a gun in the United States is legal and therefore a right of citizenship. I have long maintained that the more the federal and/or state governments get involved with “gun control” there will always be the problem of gun violence.
However, allow me to clarify gun violence as well as the government itself. Insofar as people having mental issues, we as an organization, have something to say about it. The government should start with: “How have we, as the ‘federal government’ affected the mental well being or stability of the American people?” Evidence clearly supports that individuals with mental issues are the one’s committing the gun violence.
Well, let’s give it a go — As long as the government gives monetary entitlements, food, clothing, and educational entitlements to those who allege that they have mental issues we feel the government is contradicting itself. We do realize that determining disability, especially in a gun control sting could be like an oxymoron.
Furthermore, it is the behavior and day to day maintenance of all activities of government officials is the issue that determines gun violence. How on one hand can a person say “the ultimate sacrifice, death, give your life for your country and the like,” when the very commander-in-chief has proven himself to be the most disenchanting person of those in the military?
In fact the public opinion or public approval rating of the President, Hillary Clinton, Rep. John Boehner, as well as others has dropped below what is considered to be healthy. In closing we would ask that you just think about the USA top secret information being at the hands of wannabe leaders; also, a president that runs and hides from potential “bad guys” and is still drawing red lines in the sand.
