Are we abandoning common sense over the right to bear arms? I did not want to believe my eyes and ears when I heard a man sporting a machine gun in the area of President Obama’s visit in Phoenix. The man made a disturbing statement that “he encouraged other gun owners to sport their weapons in public so the police can get use to it!” Now, why would we want to do that? Here is that video from CNN.
Here is another man in NH saying “he brought a gun to a meeting so he could be heard!” Chris Matthews asks a question everyone in this nation should be asking. “Just because you have a right to bear arms should you bring it to a Presidential Event? Remember the history of people who had guns around Presidents!”
We do not allow people to carry guns on an airline, so why should we allow people to carry arms to “Presidential Events?” What do we think? Are we abandoning common sense over our fear that our government will abandon or restrict our right to bear arms? I would not feel safe seeing someone walking down the street, walking into a mall, sitting next to me at a bar, walking into a classroom, using the restroom, watching a movie, having a gun in their gym bag or standing in a crowd sporting a machine gun or handgun. Please answer the following question and then continue to read my other post.
