Nine is a great age to be. Your old enough to be aware of what is going on in this country. You are full of ambition! you are into sports, a take charge kind of girl! One day a member from congress is going to speak at a supermarket and you are excited to see her. The sun is out, its beautiful in Arizona in January.
Your there in the crowd and in a moment you have seconds to live. A young man starts shooting, your nine, smart, you start running away from this evil person. In a nanosecond, your world has gone from being a happy 9 year old: to dead. This coward shot you in the back, Christina Green. The bullet hit your heart. The bullet was the 13th or 14th out of the ammo magazine in his rifle. Once the law said you could only carry 10. Folks felt that was taking away freedom from them and everyone in America can carry larger ammo magazines.
Its said if The coward had only a 10 bullet magazine limit, a nine year old girl probably could have lived. If I were in power, I would think no one would argue should we limit the size of ammo magazine to 10 bullets. It takes seconds to put in another. I am amazed the logic used to argue against even doing that. Anything that people see as a threat to the 2nd amendment: the answer is no.
A neighbor of mine has more guns and rifles than I have seen in my life. I kid him and ask him what does he think is about to happen? He never laughs back. He says,” I am ready for anything, and Obama is not going to take away my guns!” That’s the reason congress can’t pass any gun control law. They want the vote of the 2nd amendment crowd. These folks hate Obama and don’t believe what they see on television.
They only watch Fox news and maybe Alex Jones or Sara Palin. They feel the Government is a block away from knocking on their door. Some feel give an inch, more rules they say will lead to a ban on guns. The fight must continue, because stupidity always looses in the end. We have on our streets now, thousands of every type of gun and rifle you could imagine. Guns are like drugs; give me a little bit of time, I could get you what ever you want to buy. Most people are not like me and if you make it tougher, you could slow the shooting down and the killing.
I wish I could say if you passed every gun control act asked for, the country would suddenly be safe. It would be a little bit safer but that’s all. Good and Evil will always be with us and evil always finds ways to do its bidding. jail terms should double if you had a gun, shoot someone, life even if the person lives. Make it so bad that if you shoot a person in a crime, your life is over. You are off the streets.
In every city in every state in this country a person will be shot today with a gun and die. Mothers will weep, congress will do nothing but fight with each other but we have to keep trying to reduce the size of ammo magazines. Lets try and get congress to pass that one thing. How tough can that be? write or call the people who represent you and ask them to draft a bill asking just for that. Think back to that January day when that little 9 year old was running away in the parking lot. She was shot with the 13th or 14th bullet. Do it for her.
8:21 PM PT: It has been three years now. Gabby Gifford was giving a speech. A 9 year old girl came to see her. Three years! Congress hates 9 year old girls
or they are complete cowards
