In Genesis 4:8 the first murder is described of Cain killing his brother Able out of jealousy. It is in the apocryphal book of Jubilees, says Wikipedia, that the detail comes that Cain murdered his brother Able with a stone. Rock control, anyone?
In prison, where guns are kept out of the hands of inmates, even plasticware can be turned into a deadly weapon. Are we going to regulate plastic as a way of protecting the many against the few? Let’s note that guns can clearly kill with more efficiency than rocks or plastic. Nevertheless, the solution isn’t ‘controlling’ access to the weapon – both of the guns used in the recent homicides were obtained legally, and stricter gun laws would – per experts – likely would not have stopped either tragic killing spree. The solution lies in turning people’s hearts away from murder. Barring that, one must be prepared to spot danger brewing. These are moral, educational, and at times mental health issues.
Politics is what it is. Some have called it a ‘full contact sport.’ If so, it is a game with no holds barred, where the rules are seemingly meant to be broken. After some two years of ‘Russian collusion’ that came up empty, the renewed attack lines of the opponents on President Trump Donald J. Trump have often been gun grabbers and those who stoke the fires of racial division for political purposes. Those in media with an agenda are playing up El Paso, while downplaying that the killer in Dayton, OH was a self-avowed supporter of left-leaning Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
To be fair and accurate, which is always our goal at MHProNews, there are times that Democrats and Republicans – despite the often harsh rhetoric – are coming together. MHLivingNews has highlighted the joint praise of those on both sides of the two major party political aisle of modern manufactured homes as a solution to the affordable housing crisis.
Democrats have often led on other issues that could be useful for manufactured housing professionals, housing seekers, and current homeowners. The report below is an example.
Democrats and Republicans have come together on criminal justice reform, and more of that could be in the works. That’s important for our industry, which needs workers, and those former inmates need opportunities to earn an honest living.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has publicly encouraged President Trump on holding firm with Communist China in the trade talks. So for objective thinkers, this must not be construed in a purely partisan fashion. While the odds are seemingly narrowing that an infrastructure deal will occur prior to 2020, that is an area that Democrats and the 45th president may have more common ground with than some traditional Republicans. It must also be noted that not all Democrats are gun grabbers, but in fairness, it is an issue that the Republicans tend to be the stronger supporters of Second Amendment rights.
As a new citizen from a country where fake news is the rule and not the exception, and where the people would likely be free if they had a second amendment with their own guns, this is an issue that more Americans need to wrap their heads around. Venezuela, North Korea, Iran, Communist China – these are not nations with the right to keep and bear arms. Want to trade places? Not if you know the facts.
Freedom of expression, religious, economic, political, and other freedoms protected by the U.S. Constitution are guaranteed by the Second Amendment. An assault on any one right can undermine others. That has consequences, as the people of Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, China, Iran, the former members of the Soviet Union and others have learned.
