A short post after observing GOP supporter responses to Obama's gun control proposal. Evidently a gun ban on criminals and people with mental disabilities is an outrage.
I have seen many comments about Obama’s gun control proposal throughout the social media spectrum—most of which appear as recycled fear mongering pundit talk about loss of liberty.
I, being a pro-gun Democrat, had to investigate whether or not the tweets and posts that I was reading were valid. As usual, I found that most of the comments, concerning liberties being stripped of our society, were either from wild imaginations or misinformed folks.
I read the full gun control proposal from the Obama administration and nowhere did I see any suggestion that Obama is destroying our liberty under the second amendment. The only liberty that is being revoked is the liberty of criminals and people with mental disabilities that are inclined toward violence.
Unless you are in need of military grade firepower, you are a criminal bent on robbing a string of convenience stores, or you think that your parents are werewolves who might eat you during the next full moon unless you get to them first with 60 rounds of silver bullets … I think it is safe to say that your gun rights are still intact.
