Your View: Washington elite push gun control
“The time has come,” the Walrus said, “To talk of many thing:
Of shoes – and ships – and sealing wax - Of cabbages – and kings-
And why the sea is boiling hot – And whether pigs have wings.”
I recall this memorable poem by Louis Carroll being featured in a World War II editorial cartoon depicting marching feet, battleships, Chamberlain, Hitler, George VI, a naval battle and the Luftwaffe, and ponder how something similar may be applied to political shenanigans today.
Again we have witnessed President Obama taking oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, — in my view — with no evidently adequate substantiation that he is a natural born citizen, let alone U.S. citizen, more possibly a Kenyan or Indonesian citizen according to recent evidence acquired, contradicting the requirements of the very Constitution he has sworn to uphold.
Concerning firearms, so abhorrent to those who would demolish the Second Amendment, and for those who may have missed Michael Reagan’s article in the Jan. 20 Enterprise, it was established that not only the president’s children, and the VP’s grandchildren, but others, whose parents can afford 32 grand annually, can also attend a school defended by loaded guns, yet these same parents would deprive the children of less elite parents of the same protection, horrified at such an unthinkable suggestion.
Finally, Adolf Hitler (remember him?) is credited with the following quotation in 1935 and you may recall the ruinous outcome, “For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. The streets will be safer, the police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future.” If, until it is too late, good people resist pointing out the irrationality of the full registration or confiscation of firearms now being advocated, they and their children will surely regret it later.
We reap what we sow
We have a lot of concern about killing school children within the last year, and we have a lot of concern about guns. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.
If we want to understand the reason for all the violence in schools today we need to go back to the 1940s when creation was taught in schools. At that time, a few evil people convinced a few narrow-minded judges that it was against the Constitution to teach creation in school. Therefore, evolution replaced creation. At the time, 70 percent of the people believed in creation.
Therefore, teachers could no longer teach right from wrong. The Bible and contents were forbidden. Then evil was entering the schools instead of the teachings of the Bible, same-sex marriage as normal, killing school children, and killing babies by abortion, illegal drugs and disrespect to parents by children. Museums use the most awesome bizarre fearsome giants (dinosaurs) that ever walked the Earth exhibits to tell our children, moms, dads, and grandparents that evolution is true. It is all part of the great lie and God-mocking agenda that insinuates that our loving Creator does not exist.
What a mockery it is to use these “awesome” creatures to proclaim evolution when they were created for our children and all the generations to witness the handwork of God. Take out the Bible and read the Ten Commandments again. Make a list of everything you can think of that should not be taught to school children in the Ten Commandments. Evil goes all the way from the school house to the White House; no respect to fellow man. Therefore, we reap what we have sown. May God have mercy on us. Period.
