Like every mass shooting before it, this deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history feeds the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, and especially the press.
These diabolical agencies thrive on human tragedy.
And we are nothing but pawns to them.
Of course the diabolical Republican Party maintains that anyone and everyone should have access to any kind of firearm. And the diabolical Democratic Party maintains that no one should have access to any kind of firearm–except agents of the federal, state, and local governments of course.
And the diabolical press provides the circuses for our viewing pleasure–but keeps the bread for itself.
These mass shootings feed the political agendas of the Republican and Democratic Parties–and the pocketbooks of the press.
And this is why nothing will be done by the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, or the press, to stop these mass shootings.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
When the United States was established, there were no law-enforcement officers yet. There was also no large, well-established military force for this new nation yet. Communities had to police themselves. Communities also had to keep foreigners from taking land that was not theirs–and keep Native Americans from taking back land that was theirs.
The militias were armed groups of free men who were responsible for the security of their communities. But these militias had to be regulated–and so did gun ownership.
At first, these militias operated at the local (community) level–eventually they operated at the state level.
This is why gun ownership has always been regulated–but regulated by the states.
It is not the federal government’s responsibility or right to regulate gun ownership in the United States–it is the states’ responsibility and right.
But when the states are negligent with this responsibility, and irresponsible with this right, the federal government has to intervene.
It was the State of South Carolina’s responsibility to keep guns out of the hands of those who would abuse our right to keep and bear arms–and the State of South Carolina did nothing but blame the Confederate Flag.
It was the State of California’s responsibility to keep guns out the hands of those who would abuse our right to keep and bear arms–and the State of California did nothing but blame Islam.
And it is the State of Florida’s responsibility to keep guns out of the hands of those who would abuse our right to keep and bear arms–and the State of Florida will probably do nothing but blame Islam.
And just as South Carolinians and Californians have failed to hold their state governments responsible for gun regulation (yet gotten hysterical as hell when the federal government intervened), Floridians too will likely fail to hold their state government responsible for gun regulation (yet get hysterical as hell when the federal government intervenes).
All the while, South Carolinians, Californians, and Floridians–along with the residents of every other state in this nation–gladly allow their state and local governments to censor Confederate Flags, and discriminate against Muslims.
And this is why these mass shootings will likely never stop–because the American people of today are so averse to taking personal responsibility for their own country.
We are nothing but pawns to the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, and the press–because we allow ourselves to be.
