To gauge the disenchantment and dissatisfaction of America’s citizens, all one needs to do is to visit the White House’s “We the People” site. One of the most contentious subjects, of late, is the issue of gun control. The President wants it, and the pesky 2nd Amendment keeps getting in his way.
Lawmakers, politicians, commentators, broadcasters, and journalists have debated the fundamentally flawed theory of “gun free zones.” “Gun free” zones are a bad idea; but the powers-that-be can’t seem to grasp the concept. Seems like such a simple concept too: Bad people are going to do bad things; and gun control makes it harder for the good people to defend themselves against the bad people.
One, recently created, petition offers a solution for testing this theory of the “Gun Free Zone.” To paraphrase…if it’s good enough for our children, it should be good enough for our leaders. What do you think?
Eliminate armed guards for the President, Vice-President, and their families, and establish Gun Free Zones around them.
Gun Free Zones are supposed to protect our children, and some politicians wish to strip us of our right to keep and bear arms. Those same politicians and their families are currently under the protection of armed Secret Service agents. If Gun Free Zones are sufficient protection for our children, then Gun Free Zones should be good enough for politicians.
