More New Laws Killing Common Sense

world common senseAccording to the new New York State law, I’m now only allowed to put 7 bullets into my magazines. Really? Seven? Because 3 less than 10 will make things like Sandy Hook not happen. Hello, New York Senate: the shooter used something called a NEW YORK reload. That’s taking a gun with an empty magazine and replacing it with a new gun with a full magazine. This new law is just about the dumbest thing I have heard of – aside from all the other absolutely ridiculous “gun control” measures the government has taken. The only gun control I need is two hands.

I know common sense is rare these days, but how is restricting a law-abiding citizen from having weapons to protect himself the common sense answer to gun violence? It’s simple: it’s not. If you were a criminal, looking for a house to rob, would you go into one where you know there are no weapons or one where there’s a chance you could get shot upon entering? Seriously. This is not a difficult question.

Fact remains, if you come into my house, looking to take things that aren’t yours, I will have something to say about that. Or rather, I’ll have my barrel do the talking for me. But, in a society where a robber can sue a homeowner for falling down stairs that didn’t have a railing, I am not surprised that people are fighting common sense. The only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.

I would rather live with having shot a man, than die knowing I could have done something, but did nothing. I understand people fear what they do not know, but think of it this way: if you were standing in a classroom full of children, would you shoot them? For me, that’s an obvious no. I would do anything to protect an innocent child. And that goes for all law-abiding citizens, gun owner or not. So how can you judge thousands of people by the action of one insane one? If something evil like that happens, you should trust that to be the exception, not the rule.
