Re: “The Crazed Internet Rantings of Jared Loughner

The ability to buy a gun is called freedom. The disability of not being able to buy as gun, of having to ask a government official for permission to buy a gun, is called tyranny. Especially in this country wherein we still have not produced a Stalin, or Hitler, or a Idi Amin Dada, thanks to our Constitution and bill of rights. Thus we have not produced the prodigious genocide victims so common in the rest of the world. 60 million in soviet Russia, 100 million in communist China and millions more elsewhere and let us not forget the millions killed by that bastion of socialism, the 3rd Reich. They all had massive gun controls, and outright bans, especially to certain people, something our constitution has thus far prevented.

When truly sad and rare events occur because we enjoy that those freedoms, including the massacres which have happened in places, where law abiding people are unconstitutionally prevented from protecting themselves, we are outraged and demand justice. But we do not offer our liberties in payment for those acts because we, did not commit those acts. We also realize that we may at some point, need to protect ourselves and families from those engaging in those same acts in the future, instead of wetting our diapers and submitting to the tender mercies of the actor/s.

One is not free if one must obtain permission to protect one's self or family. One and possibly one's family, may not live through the process of awaiting the convenience, of government officials so commissioned by government. It has happened to others, here and elsewhere in the world, many times many.
