Warning: Aurora Massacre Rant

I am estatic to see this as I am a second amendment freek (despite the fact that I should not have to be). I whole heartedly agree with this; with one exception, which no one here will like, and that is to continue the principle that fellons ,and mentally disturbed persons should not have the same access. I know! They should have the right also to defend themselves, but when your are being attacked by an armed felon you could possibly see the need to restrict, in a limited manner, who can possess a firearm; despite the fact that most felons already possess or know how to obtain a firearm without legal consent. I am going to catch hell for this, but it is the way I believe. And yes. On occassions, legally armed citizens have gone nuts also but dosen't common sense need to be played out in this arena?
Just my thoughts. I don't think anyone can honestly justify why a convicted felon should have a right to carry a firearm.

Having been born in the Blue Ridge mountains of NC, I learned, as did we all, by age six to fire a rifle, and by age 8 or so to fire it well. Our skills sustained life, we never went hungry, nor did we know fear, for we were never taught fear. Fear has been used for at least the past 60 years to reshape America into something I struggle to recognize. Had this killer used fire to destroy life, no one would have screamed for a ban on matches. Few fear matches. Because of fear, America has increasingly traded liberty for false security. As Franklin said, such deserve neither liberty nor security and shall have neither. The answer to gun bans IS 1776. NO fear.
As for felons, they will obtain whatever they wish to obtain; all the more reason for a well-armed citizenry. I would point to Switzerland as example FOR mandatory gun ownership and training.
My brother's friend made a statement that is quite telling:
"In our desire to have government become our benefactor and sustainer, we have allowed it to become our taskmaster and overlord. As a result, we have become little more than well-fed, well-entertained slaves to the state. Freedom, as envisioned by our forefathers, is gone." ~ Chuck Baldwin
Gone? Not completely. Not here.
