Like I always say, the 2nd Amendment, the provision that gives every American the right to keep and bear arms, is blind and stupid. In its relentless pimping for the gun industry, the NRA has unleashed an avalanche of deadly weapons on this gun-crazy country. Just as protects access to weapons for cops and hunters, it also protects access to weapons for domestic abusers, mental patients, jerk-offs on the no-fly list, all-around dim bulbs, and now little children.
As the father of a sweet, smart nine-year old daughter myself, the latest example of gross excess is the image of that pony-tailed New Jersey girl accidentally killing her gun range instructor. It is obscene and uncivilized to let a third grader shoot a fully automatic Uzi machine gun. What was she training for, revolution? Invasion? Service in the coming post-apocalyptic social disorder? Stupid, but just another of countless examples of how far into insanity we have let the gun nuts push us.
Geraldo you stupid little man. Come out from behind that mustache. The tragic accident in which that instructor lost his life was his fault. The first moments of the video, I, and 99% of gun owners could see his mistakes. He should have been behind that child, holding the gun, absorbing the recoil while she pulled the trigger. Every gun owner I have talked to, heard from, or that has commented on that accident agrees with me. Guns are like anything else, they require caution and to be handled safely. That gentleman did not do that. Just as with any other potentially dangerous tool, guns MUST be handled at all times, in a safe manner. Further you ignorant little troll, understand that the Second Amendment does NOT give children access to guns. Their parents may, or may not allow access, as these parents did in this case. Again, they did not do all they could to ensure her safety in my view. But, the fact is this instructor either had no idea what he was doing, or he just ignored such training.
That is a fact, Geraldo, and no ranting by ignorant buffoons like you will change that. No amount of emotionalistic drivel by you, or your mustache will make your ignorant misunderstanding of firearms, and their owners correct either. The fact is this. there are hundreds of millions of firearms, and tens of millions of legal firearms in America, and yet there are a tiny number of accidental shooting deaths, about 600 per year. Drownings kill 2,000, I guess we need to reign in those swimming nuts right? How about 2,500 choking deaths? Fires? 2,700 deaths. Accidental falls, 27,000 deaths! That is 45 for every one that dies in an accidental shooting. Where is your moral outrage Geraldo? Do we NEED two-story homes with stairs Geraldo? How about poisoning Geraldo. 39,000 accidental deaths are by poisoning, 65 TIMES the number who accidentally die by firearms and of course 42,000 die in cars every year Geraldo, 42,000. 70 for every one that is accidentally killed by a firearm. Yet, you rail against guns as if they are evil, and as if their owners are all irresponsible boobs. You ignore the tens of thousands of crime STOPPED by armed Americans annually. You ignore that lives defended and saved with firearms. I must assume that you are either ignorant of these facts, or are just an emotionally unstable person who does not care anything about facts. Which is it Geraldo?
