General Patton once said “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather, we should thank God that such men lived.” To me, that is one of the best quotes ever. It signifies true patriotism. That’s why we keep winning wars. We understand that and we accept that. By we, I mean the Conservative portion of American society. On twitter, @VPCinfo has this to say:
There have been eight fatal shootings of law enforcement officers so far this month.
Why do the numbers matter? Is that important? Is it more important than 1 officer being killed?
I’m a fan of MArooned by JayG. One feature of his blog that he HATES is how stupid the laws of his state are. For instance, a man with an unregistered firearm will get more time in prison than a child rapist. Get caught with spent brass stuck in your shoe? That’s a few years in the joint.
Why is it that people spend more time outlawing specific implements than trying to fight the criminals? These men died. Probably needlessly, but that’s arguable. I think it’s tragic… why doesn’t the anti-gun crowd? To them it’s another statistic to prove that guns are evil inanimate objects. They provide proof that their emotions are justified. On this point I AGREE with the anti-gunners. What I do not agree with is who/what they are angry at. I am angry at the criminals and in some cases, the justice system that still allows them on the streets. They are angry at the gun. The inanimate object that cannot possibly do anything without someone using it. Both have righteous anger. One is misplaced.
