Kingman Letter: A typical left-wing belief

Re: Lori Gabriel-Dane's "Asinine law has many victims" letter.

Your idea about gun control is a typical left-wing belief. The 2nd Amendment is as you wrote, "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

Lori, Americans are "the people." Protecting our country is one thing, that's up to the government. Our Founding Fathers understood that governments go astray, that is, Obama is dismantling our military strength.

As far as "Stand Your Ground," this is a state law and is a good law, if used correctly - don't rush to judgment on this law. Our laws will bring out the truth.

You state, "you radicals keep killing innocent people." You might consider me a radical because I believe we should be able to have guns - as a right. However, I truly believe in laws in America prevailing and that those who are guilty will be brought to justice. From your letter you do not believe this.

If shot, wouldn't you rather it be with an AR-15 ( actually I thought it's an AK-15) than a shotgun?? The shotgun leaves a much larger wound and greater internal injury.

"Why on earth do you need an AR-15? Ever?"

That's easier to answer than you would be led to believe. Not that it is any of your business but I offer you this: an AR-15 is the grownups (adult) version of the .22 plinker or target rifle!

If criminals and feds have access to AR-15 and other weapons, then I see no reason why peaceful citizens should not be able to arm themselves likewise for their own protection.

"1) Why on earth do you need an AR-15? Ever? "

"Oh the great right wing lie/myth only right wingers have or believe in gun ownership!"

Not really. You can go to the far far left website, democratic underground, and read all the topics and comments, for and against gun ownership, at the special group set aside for that. (Yes, I do visit leftist websites. Mainly to compare how both sides react to things.) But many of them are very big on "reasonable restrictions", which will always be the camels nose in the tent.

""It assumes that anyone with a gun in a no-gun city is up to no good.""

I hate to break it to you, but you are never going to get rid of guns in any city.

Then there's that 2nd Amendment thing.

""Oh the great right wing lie/myth only right wingers have or believe in gun ownership!""

Who says that?

""Sorry to disappoint you but its not a right or left issue,""

It is when the left is the ideology pushing stringent gun laws in the major cities across the nation, making for a worse and more violent crime rate.

""whether you believe it or not democratic party has a conservative wing, moderate wing & yes we have our far left wing,""

The Democrat party is run and dominated by the extreme Left.

That's why Pelosi is STILL in the leadership role.

One has to wonder how do some right wing extremist's convince themselves only the Republican party has rich folks, business orientated folks, only they own guns, and that all liberals/democrats are poor, hate guns, own none, have no businesses, live off welfare, food stamps, section 8 housing? I guess they live in a world like a old mule with blinders on, since if this right wing myth, theory were true it would not explain Pelosi very rich, many businesses, Kerry similiarly, who has been photographed hunting with gun in hand, one could find tons of democrat/liberals in the category these delusional right wing dixiecrats seem to think don't exist! I guess delusions of grandeur are grand indeed!

You know, this is a more of a difference in perspectives. I grew up with guns in the house- I think that with substantial training SOME people (not even most) could be qualified to own or conceal-carry a firearm. Then again, I think of guns as used for sport.

Meanwhile my wife was almost shot accidentally by a family member and had a gun brandished at her (she was on a bike in a park and rode away). She fears guns, mostly because so far she's been on the business end more than the grip end.

Guns laws follow 2 flows:
1) Why on earth do you need an AR-15? Ever?
2) if gun crimes are committed in a place with no guns allowed, then that should deter gun crime because you can just pull over two kids with guns in the back seat and arrest them before a crime is committed. It assumes that anyone with a gun in a no-gun city is up to no good.

I myself found it hilarious that she really thought a president has anything to do with concealed carry. The federal government has nothing to do with this, the states regulate it. I also found here interpretation of the 2nd amendment laughable, the U.S. supreme court has already decided that the 2nd amendment guarantees the right to own a firearm. Her points are like most Demolibs, baseless and incorrect, just more hysteria from the spineless left.
