The how of all this comes mostly upon the heels of a decision by the most activist Supreme Court in American history, the Republican appointees ignoring more half the words in the 2nd Amendment, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State…” to decide that the right to bear arms applies to INDIVIDUALS rather than the states.
With that decision came renewed work for the NRA approved lobbying group ALEC – the American Legislative Exchange Council – lobbying all 51 state legislatures to adopt ever more INSANE gun legislation. 20 round clips for handguns? Castle and Stand Your Ground laws that are actually just “Negro hunting licenses”, and of course my favorites, pistols in bars and assault rifles at college keg parties!
A sign of just how bad ALEC is perceived as a legislative arm of the NRA, McDonnalds’s, Kraft, Pepsi and Coca-Cola to name just a few have LOUDLY and PUBLICLY pulled out of ALEC.
Is there an overall conspiracy in all this gun crazy crap? I read a big daily from a big city every morning, The Houston Chronicle. It seems everyday I read about someone shooting several people, often killing themselves. I can tell from the names and the locations that about 99% of these deaths concern Blacks in the Ghettos, Hispanics in the Barios and white trash in trailer parks. In fact we all know that, it is just unpopular to says so. Perhaps bullets are indeed the Republican answer to Social Darwinism, abortions and birth control?
