See…..we need to carry guns so that we can ‘protect’ ourselves.
More guns keep us safer.
That’s what happened in socialist Europe where they restrict gun ownership, they are all dead. No guns to ‘protect’ themselves.
And that is America’s problem.
A gun nut culture. Every one has to be armed when you go to the store, sitting on your front porch, in your living room, going to church and to the hospital.
‘Starting in January, you can legally carry handguns in public in Texas. And later next year, you can have concealed handguns on state university campuses. There are still a few strictly gun-free zones, like hospitals. Some Second Amendment advocates are trying to change that’.
‘State Rep. Drew Springer’.
“I’ve had both employees as well as visitors of their loved ones that have said we’re right here on the interstate, there’s a big sign that says hospital and people are coming off and trying to rob them of their drugs,” Springer says. “They feel vulnerable and they want the right to be able to protect themselves.”
‘At the start of the year, a group of 57 Native Americans students (third through eighth grade) from the Lakota tribe were taken to a minor league hockey match in Rapid City, South Dakota to celebrate their academic achievements’.
‘But what started as a field trip to reward the students quickly turned into a nightmare, when a group of drunk men in an executive suite dumped beer on their heads and yelled “go back to the Rez!”
‘Seven months later, only one of the perpetrators faces criminal charges. His trial begins today, and if found guilty he will be convicted of disorderly conduct and fined $500 — avoiding hate crime charges, a jury, and jail time’.
‘Chaperone Consuelo Means briefly looked for security for assistance, but when she returned to her seat, she felt something dripping on her head. Looking up, she saw the men dumping beer on three rows of students’.
‘When Means alerted the other chaperones and tried to intervene, the perpetrators reportedly yelled at the group to go back to the Rez’.
‘After the incident, the Rapid City Police Department conducted an investigation and concluded three men were directly responsible. However, they only decided to charge one, Trace O’Connell, with disorderly conduct — a misdemeanor’.
‘On the day of the first hearing, O’Connell, who has plead not guilty, was a no-show’.
‘Due to their large presence in Rapid City, Native Americans were hopeful that some of their own would sit on the jury’.
