Will we fight? We see that the United States Government is turning against us, and people who would be our masters are coming out of the woodwork.
Responsibility and Authority must balance. If you have responsibility with no authority then you have a man who is ineffective and useless. If you have authority with no responsibility, then you have a man who can do anything he likes, no matter how cruel or outrageous. Normally society prevents this kind of out-of-balance condition, but lately the preacher/sheep mentality as well as long term social programs have dulled us to the real danger that the pendulum swing represents. Our president is a prime example, but by no means unique.
See, we have a president who has authority, but no sense of responsibility. He\\\\\\\'s clearly out of control, and the media, and population allow it. Even encourage it. Sadly, we pay the price for his actions. It\\\\\\\'s a bad situation that cannot forever endure, the pendulum may swing to the tyrant, but it will eventually swing back to the people, it always, always, does. But is it enough for a revolution? Is it enough to really fight? It may come to that, eventually, but not yet. Right now there is no one to fight.
A revolution requires not only dissatisfaction, but aggressiveness and a leader. A revolutionist must be willing to fight and die for his cause, or he\\\\\\\'s no more than an angry coward, ready to whip up a fight he has no intention of finishing. Our nation has made it a national policy to separate the aggressive elements of our society. Our laws disarm them, punish their aggression, and imprison the ones that refuse to comply. Those that remain after the culling are the sheep, the timid and cowardly, and those that would never place themselves personally between danger and someone else. We have effectively pacified our nation. Can a real leader grow from that timid crowd? If he did, then he would be watched, monitored, and if necessary, eliminated. Oh, not like that... all it takes is a traffic stop where drugs are found, or an accusation of sexual assault, or even the most recent method, Child Porn on the home computer... and the potential leader is no more.
So will we fight back? There is some hope in the Tea Party, but not unless it organizes into a functional and real political party - but I have my doubts about that working, as the leaders will be discredited and the media would turn everything against them.
There is a saying that I often use. A woman will stay in an abusive relationship until the fear of saying is greater than the fear of leaving. It applies here, as well. An American will stay in a country while the bars of his cage are forged in front of him, because he fears the bars less than he fears the fight to restore his liberty.
I noticed that there were very few shootings before 1995.
The passing of the "Gun Free School Zone Act, of 1995, is the beginning of the killings. Within three years our Children were being targeted in the new Gun Free School Zones.
Before 1995, there were three mass killings in schools. The first was a disgruntled man who blew up a school with dynamite in the Bath Township. The second was the Bell Tower shooting in 1966, where a veteran Marine sniped at people from a tower. The third was a shooting in California where a Viet-Nam vet shot at and hurt some Cambodian refugee kids. There is no law at all that could have stopped these killings. None. Even total disarmament would not have stopped them.
The ill advised and useless gun ban passed congress and was signed into law, and all of the teachers and students who had kept guns in their cars on campus were force to leave them at home and the age of paranoia was born. But paranoia is rampant when you understand that the criminals are better armed than you are, and you are in a place where you are little more than a target.Those that would make a name for themselves by killing quickly pounced on the fact that no one would be able to defend the school. One shooting in 215 years was nothing compared to what was getting ready to happen now that the schools were elevated to prime targets.
In 1998, Two boys shot and killed four girls and a teacher, and wounded 11 others.
In 1999, Littleton Colorado - 12 dead.
In 2002, Tuscon Arizona, three teachers dead.
In 2005, Red Lake Minn, seven dead dozens wounded.
In 2006, Nickle Mines, Penn, Five dead.
In 2007, Blacksburg Va, 32 kids and teachers dead.
In 2008, Dekalb Ill, Five dead.
In 2020, Huntsville Al, Three dead three wounded.
In 2012, Chardon Ohio, Three dead.
In 2012, Oakland Calif, Seven dead.
In 2012, Sandy Hook, 27 dead.
The only response that is possible other than revoking this idiotic gun ban that has led to so many deaths, is to arm the schools, arm the teachers, or place police in the building. The better solution would be to file a state level lawsuit against the US government for violating the 2nd Amendment prohibitions on these kinds of laws, and for their placing so many kids in serious danger by banning self defense.The GOVERNMENT created this paranoia, the GOVERNMENT passed laws they are forbidden to pass, and the GOVERNMENT got these kids killed.
