Gun control. And all of the good and ridiculous conversations that are currently going on in this country. I’ve seen both of the following images on Facebook recently, and both are completely ridiculous to me.
When your children and mine are likely to be specific targets of gun violence, or violence of any kind, then, yes, they should also have 11 armed guards at their school. Until they are (and I hope they never ever are), that argument is null and void.
The same goes for this image. The President of the United States, Vice-President, and numerous others are likely to be specific targets of gun violence, terrorist attacks, and assassination attempts. So, yes, they have many armed guards and teams solely dedicated to their safety. Are you? If not, stop using that as your argument.
We have a serious problem with mental illness in this country and there is just not enough help for those who suffer from those diseases, or support for their family members. The system needs an overhaul. I will not argue that point.
No one is proposing taking away guns from law abiding citizens. If you have money and a clean background check, you can get a gun. Your 2nd Amendment rights are not being violated. You can still protect yourself and your family. Stop whining.
Also, check out what Jon Stewart has to say on the subject.
