A 14-year Old’s Idea of a Gun Problem

gun_flagBy Mason Chandler

On October 1st, a crazy, demonized man walked into Umpqua Community College armed with six guns and on one mission: the persecution and destruction of Christians.  He went on to murder nine people and wounded seven others before he was finally taken down.  Since then, President Obama has called for increased gun control.  But guns are not the problem.  Criminals will always be able to lay their hands on a weapon, and we will only take away the right of    law-abiding citizens to defend their life, liberty and property if we take away guns.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio said “The reflexive reaction on the left is to say we need more gun laws.  Criminals don’t follow gun laws.  Only law-abiding citizens follow gun laws, and there is just no evidence that these gun laws would prevent these shootings.”

Retired Neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson said that he “never saw a body with bullet holes that was more devastating than taking the right to arm ourselves away.”

Also, some of the cities that have the highest gun control laws, like Chicago, also have some of the highest murder rates.  Murder rates in Chicago increased 17% from 2011-2012.  On top of that, it is illegal for the government to try to control guns.  The Second Amendment says that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”  If the Constitution, our highest law, guarantees the right to keep and bear arms, what argument do we have to outlaw them?

The problem we are dealing with is not a problem with guns, but the absence of them.  When people carry arms, the world is a whole lot safer place.  These mass shootings seem to occur in places where guns are either banned, or you’d never expect them to be there.  In Roseburg, Oregon a hideous demon took guns into a gun-free zone, and in Charleston, South Carolina a malicious racist pulled a gun in Bible study.  Where the citizens carry guns, the shooting don’t occur.
