I hate biased articles like this one. It only focuses on the facts that support eliminating the constitution and the rights of freedom. This article left out that gun crimes were on a decline for decades going back pre WW II The latest school shooting was horrible but why add more laws to the books on guns when we already have 20000 law that don’t work on criminals who don’t follow laws its just common sense. The people who blame sane legal owners of weapons for tragedies like this are insane. The United States Of America is the biggest weapon seller in the world. The ATF ran a series of “gun walking” sting operations between 2006 and 2011.These operations were committed under the umbrella of project gun runner, a project intended to stem the flow of firearms into Mexico by interdicting straw purchasers and gun traffickers within the United States.
The stated goal of allowing these purchases was to continue to track the firearms as they were transferred to higher-level traffickers and key figures in Mexican cartels, with the expectation that this would lead to their arrests and the dismantling of the cartels.The tactic was questioned during the operations by a number of people, including ATF field agents and cooperating licensed gun dealers.Operation Fast and Furious, by far the largest “gun walking” probe, monitored the sale of over 2,000 firearms, of which nearly 700 were recovered as of October 20, 2011.
A number of straw purchasers have been arrested and indicted; however, as of October 2011, none of the targeted high-level cartel figures have been arrested. This means the government purposely allowed illegal guns into a country to willingly allow unrest between cartels so the US could later come in and liberate mexico. I will post more about that later. First of to deter crazy people from killing people is to improve this country’s healthcare system. The US always boast that they are the richest country in the world yet they can’t spend a few billion on feeding the hungry.
The amount of money the US spends on the military for just one day is 10.46 Billion per day. That includes the 900 official military bases around the world. If 50 percent of that was spent on food everyone in the US would have enough food for a few decades. Recently our infrastructural grade was rated D. We have bridges collapsing on their own and society is concerned about the newest Iphone or tablet I’m just saying everyone is focused on guns and crime when the government does what it wants when it wants to whoever it wants. Our constitutional rights are being eroded everyday and no one cares. All they care about is how Kim Kardashian’s baby belly looks or American Idol shows. Now drones are flown in our skies and we are searched without warrants. I obviously don’t have all the questions or answers but I am no sheep like the majority of society.
The things you own end up owning you
