Transmission 3916 - Murderers Use Guns To Kill Love



There is no time for a fucking debate.

Deeply disturbed people are shooting down our 
Mothers and Fathers and Brothers and Sisters and Friends.

There is no defence for antiquated words that allow death over life!

The time has come to stop watching this bloodshed like deers in the headlights.

If you believe any industry, hobby, right or desire Trumps the safety of us all,
read the opening words of the document before you quote the content.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this
 Constitution for the United States of America"

"Government of the people, by the people, for the people, 
shall not perish from the Earth"
Abraham Lincoln"

RFW



Abraham Lincoln said "Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth". 
The concept is brilliant. The results would be world-changing. The reality is a pipe-dream.
In America, we the people have the right to elect others like us into our government to represent our needs and enact the desires of the majority. A consistent problem is that once these people are put in a position of prominence, many then shift their priority to self-preservation, rather than the will of the electorate. They become elite royalty above reproach or examination.
The definition of the word constitution is a "body of fundamental principles or established precedents according to which a state or other organization is acknowledged to be governed". The key word is acknowledged - "recognized as being good or important". Common person translation - our rule book is in writing, but the theoretical intent is sometimes undermined by the literal interpretation and enforcement.
So we have entities, be they corporate, non-profit, private, public, religious or other wised biased people or groups that challenge and/or protect the constitutional as written, unless when what is written does not help their cause - so they seek to have it eliminated or re-written to suite their needs. The fight goes all the way to our Supreme Court and they judge the constitutionality of the litigants cause or target. But to an overwhelming majority of our citizens, that procedure is financially and intellectually not available to utilize. So we bitch, and moan and cry and pray and write on Face Book, in our journals or anywhere we can or talk to ourselves, our friends or to our gods and tell them what we wish and want and need.
The US Government has enough money to send us a tax bill every year and a follow up letter if we do not pay enough. Just as the State will let you know when you need to renew your license or obey their newest regulations. But they do not have the knowhow, interest or funding to ask each registered citizen what they want to be enacted or changed. One question posed to all, with the answer and will of the majority put into effect by the elected servants. A real Government of the people, by the people, for the people.
The Second Amendment which states that "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" was adopted On December 15, 1791, with the Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments to the Constitution). At that time, the most advanced weapon would probably have been either the Kentucky long-rifle, capable of firing two or three .60 balls per minute out to an accurate range of 300 yards, or the 6-pound field gun, which could fire a variety of projectiles 1500 yards, usually one shot every two minutes.
Fervent supporters of private gun ownership of any kind (responsible or not), the NRA or any firearm manufacturers should not have the right to condone the blood shed and the lives taken and ruined by these weapons over the right of the majority to remove them from the hands of killers of our mothers and fathers and sons and daughters and friends.
How do we rebel - how do we revolt - how do we let our combined voice be heard - how do we take back our Government from the self-proclaimed royalty - how would you vote - do you want to vote - when do you want to vote?
The killing needs to stop.
War is over if you want it - do you want it?

Linked to the invisible
Almost imperceptible
Something inexpressible.
Science insusceptible
Logic so inflexible
Causally connectible
Yet nothing is invincible"
