This uproar over the Second Amendment, I strongly believe, is an attempt by the minority to push their will on the majority!! This country's governance has ALWAYS been based on majority rule. Now, since the election of THIS President, that concept and practice is being called (among other things) TYRANNY!! There wasn't any cry nor whisper of tyranny when American's rights were actually being infringed upon - the Patriot Act - by an Administration and President that differed in exercising its and his authority by only one thing; he is (I'm going to let you "complete" this sentence as to what that one thing is).
Now, I'm going to sit back and watch to see who attacks me for "playing the race card" as I continue. I've learned that phrase, "playing the race card, is (most often) code for "oops I've been exposed - let me project". Many cannot get beyond the audacity to utter ANYTHING that suggests that we, America, still has this problem, mor e alarming, it appears to be becoming increasingly pervasive. I would advise that those of that ilk not waste your time because I WILL NOT BE SILENCED on something that I've considered, and successfully fought against for many years and, lately and more particularly, for the past four years and, something that I have determined clearly to be nothing more than the frustration of some in our society who are so filled with fear, hatred, rage, bigotry and racism that they, perhaps because they have come to discover others like them, truly believe that they are righteous in their ideology.
Let me remind everyone that the KKK bases its belief on the bible and christianity. What makes them, like these relatively new groups, so dangerous is that they are committed to carrying out what they BELIEVE is "the will of God", that being relegating all those who are not them to enslavement, subservience or, oblivion (death)! These relatively “new” radicals, like the Klan, must not be dismissed. These people would rather see this country go down in flames then let THIS President enact and/or propose policies, like all other Presidents have done before him, to accomplish his and the (obvious) majority's vision for the betterment of this country and its citizens.
What's so alarming about this discord and/or (threatening; threatening because of the insistence on openly carrying firearms to public events) unrest is that THE WORLD IS WATCHING! I'm sure if there were ever a question about the cohesiveness of American society, the USA, the world is seeing clearly that we are not "One" as a country. They, I am certain, can clearly see the divisiveness based on old ideologies that we claim to other nations do not have a place in our nation. They, I am sure, can see clearly that we have been hypocrites in our claim to be a country that welcome and/or embrace our diversity; they can see clearly that that is not the case. They can see that we have been hypocrites in our reasoning for challenging (sometimes going to war) other countries for their lack of democracy and human rights for their countrymen when we show such intolerance for our own countrymen. They can clearly see that we still have in our midst those that would willingly and, indeed, currently do, openly threaten to bear arms against our government - our own country - for no other reason than bigotry and racism against the man that was elected by the majority in this country to be its President. No one, especially “they”, I am sure, is fooled by those “radicals” in this country who attempt to cloak their hatred of THIS President in the guise of political opposition.
