Swickard: Stopping one-way fish in a barrel shootings

© 2011 Michael Swickard, Ph.D. To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them. Richard Henry Lee, one of our country’s founding leaders - Mission Statement from the Brady Center for Preventing Gun Violence: We are devoted to creating an America free from gun violence, where all Americans are safe at home, at school, at work, and in our communities. Every few weeks there is a new outrage where otherwise law-abiding defenseless people are suddenly killed by a psychopath without the victims having any recourse for self-defense. When these attacks happen, the victims stand like sheep at slaughter, nervous but compliant to these one way shootings. The perpetrators of the massacres count on their victims being defenseless and society delivers that defenselessness because our society has made it quite hard to be armed in our society. Today it is quite problematic to use guns for defense because of all of the constrictions. Legal weapons cannot be close to schools or government offices which is ignored by murderers but means lawful owners of guns cannot help protect people when murderers run rampant. Look at the rules against guns in Mexico and then look at the number of AK-47s used every year to kill thousands of Mexicans. The law-abiding citizens have no means of defense. If they try to defend themselves they violate the law. They are instructed by their government to allow themselves to be murdered rather than have a means of defense. It is just one-way fish in the barrel killing by the criminals in Mexico. Read column
