The right to have a gun ?!
The United-States, our beloved neighbor, is the most powerful country (economically speaking) in the world. Since the 15th century, americans have the right to own a gun. The idea was simple, if ever the government takes over the U.S.A, the humble citizen had the right to rumble against that government and therefore take it down for a better america. Back in the day, it was a good way of making sure that the american ground stayed safe, but today ? Why would a regular citizen in our modern society take a automatic rifle and try to attack the government ? Therefore, is the right to own a gun still a good law ?
First of all, you will never see a mentally healthy citizen taking an automatic rifle and try to rumble against the government because things has changed over centuries. With the medias, the government is not a total secret anymore. Of course they are “top secret” projects, but then again, a normal citizen don’t know about those projects and therefore can’t rumble. I am not saying that the american democracy (if we can call in that way) is perfect and shouldn’t get improved; I am saying that having an army of angry citizen with guns taking over politics nowadays is not the answer anymore, we do not solve problems with guns..
There as been a lot of debates over that topic in the late year 2012 because some american civilian attacked schools, cinemas and public areas with fully automated rifles. I mean, how fucked-up is this ? Why would the authority accept fully automated rifles which are guns of massive destruction and are surely not to take over the regime..? We heard a lot about the tragedy of Newton last year where an elementary school got taken down by a mentally disabled person. This man killed 20 children and 6 adults. This would have never happened if guns were not allowed legally in the US. Basically the murderer opened the door of the school with a automated rifle and shot everyone. Why automated rifles are legal in the first place ?! We live in a modern society and yet, we are still at that stage ?
My opinion is that all of this make no sense ! I live in Canada where guns are not allowed by the authorities and I don’t have to worry about getting killed by a random guy that comes with a gun. I think that having automated rifles available to the public is way to dangerous and they should be banned from society. I think that if the US are not ready to give up entirely their guns, they should at least get rid of the automated rifles because , honestly, who will use a rifle that shoots over 3 bullets per second of defend themselves ?
