DO YOU SEE ANY LIGHT DOWN OUR TUNNEL?
Earlier in the week I read an article on the internet about how Americans have become so afraid of other Americans. They suggested all the nice psychological and open ways to approach the problem–all decent suggestions about communication solutions.
BUT–they ignored the number one possible solution to our current problem with fear of neighbors:
Remove their guns! I remember some conservatives warning not to vote for the Democrats because they’ll “take away our guns!”
Unfortunately, we haven’t, and assuming that folks are fully armed, we have such calls as for genocide of LGBTQs and for murder of the opposition if our former president is indicted. I thought the specificity of the postings about murder (execution?) should be illegal, and maybe they were–they have disappeared from the internet. Good riddance.
To the best of my knowledge automatic-kill rifles are still legal, at least in some states.
But “the people” are armed– in some states they can carry concealed and even openly carry guns. An example of extreme concern should be in the state of Missouri, where Federal law enforcement officers say they seized 11 guns, a silencer, more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, body armor plates and several pounds of a binary explosive from a Springfield man with ties to the Boogaloo extremist anti-government group. Local and state law enforcement are not allowed to enforce federal gun laws. !!!
In Missouri, local law enforcement agencies, under penalty of being fined, can’t help in enforcing federal guns laws.
